Actually there a dozens of other ways to put it. Not playing well...certainly. Embarrassing? Get a grip dude.

Football in full swing. College Basketball around the corner. Baseball playoffs. Weather turning colder. Holiday season approaching. Oktoberfest beers hitting the shelves. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year.

Spring wedding here. It was hot as hell and we were dodging thunderstorms but I'll be damned if I'm going to miss a game and force other Buckeyes to miss a game!

Additionally, I also have a wedding today. Catholic wedding, so we get the 130 service with a huge break until the 530 reception. The 330 start time will actually allow me to catch the first half.

Haha, alright. Not sure why I assumed you went to OSU. I've worked a couple of shifts at that store during Halloween. The stories I could tell....

Comment 11 Sep 2015

Which JJ's and when? I used to manage the Neil Ave store for about a year (2003). If your bad experience occurred at our store during that time or close to it, chances are I know the person and can inflict sweet painful justice to them.

I was thinking about the comparison of our result vs that of Bama against Wisky. One thing that will of course be completely overlooked is that Wisconsin matches up perfectly for Bama while Va Tech is arguably the worst match up (scheme/personnel wise) that we will see all year.

Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight
Exit, light
Enter, night
Take my hand
Off to never-never land

A kid I played baseball with in Little League had a dad that looked so much like Joe Montana it was uncanny. We were in the state tournament in Youngstown and during an off day we went to the mall as a team. Some kid comes up to the guy and asks for his autograph thinking he's Montana. The guy politely tells him he's not but the kid refuses to believe it, thinking he's just wanting to avoid attention, so he asks for an autograph a second time. The guys says alright and signs his real name on the paper the kid brought. The look on that kids face was priceless.

Mrs. Bluke221 has been known to proclaim "I'm not going to plan my Saturdays around Ohio State games." The counseling sessions have been going well.

Definitely! I think the team improved by leaps and bounds from the VT game to the MSU game. I think that contributed to improved play from Barrett as well. I also think JT himself just became more comfortable with things after the VT loss.

Comment 21 Aug 2015

While Brewer may have been playing his first game in 2 years (I'm not sure), that's not relevant to this discussion on which QB VT would rather face. Reading The Key Play thread regarding this, I saw a lot of comfort with JT as our starter based almost entirely on the result of last years game. My point is simply that Barrett's rust was simply another factor in his poor play (not making excuses by the way). If you want to make the same argument for Brewer, that's fine, but that is another discussion.

Comment 21 Aug 2015

Another factor in Barrett's performance last year that those over at The Key Play seem to completely overlook is the fact that JT was not only making his second collegiate start, he was playing in only his second game in almost 2 full years.

Recruits are like women. You can never have enough depth and the good ones never stick around too long.

Comment 12 Aug 2015

This. I joined without permission this morning and I am expecting a massive beatdown once the bank account is perused.

Comment 11 Aug 2015

Hands down my mom. Can't watch any sporting event with her. Everything is "Oh my God!?", eeeeep, eeeeek, gasp, inhale, etc. Her celebrations are terrible as well. (Love you mom!). Second place is my best friend who is so high strung for big games he's not enjoyable to be around. That and he gets pissed at everything and swears...alot. Even in public.

Love Pseudo! Only had one so far but always hoping to get my hands on more. I've heard very good things about Hill Farmstead as well as Lunch from Maine.

Citra Ass Down is very good. I love citra hops so you usually can't go wrong with them imo, but I thought this beer was well done. Just a heads up, when I bought it at Party Source in KY, the bombers were 8.50 and 4 pint cans were 10, so keep an eye out for those.
