First started watching OSU sports during the '90 football season, when I was about 12. Loved it, and transitioned right into OSU basketball as well. I can truly say that Jimmy Jackson was my first sports hero. Wore his jersey so much that it ended up being my nickname at that time, even though I was a short white kid. My love for all things Scarlet and Grey led to matriculation to OSU in fall '96. Had some fun, breathed some helium with Block O, got arrested at Sloopy's partying with the ski club, but ultimately this homesick guy needed a place a little closer, so I transferred to OU in Athens, hence my handle on here. Obviously have a lot of love for both schools, but I made the best move for me, and have never stopped loving my Buckeyes.

"We'll make some assessments...but I don't anticipate there to be any changes...there was a reason Cardale was starting."

  And that is a reason we will never know.  Possibly one discussed before the season's practices ever began.  For sure a reason that must be only apparent to the OSU coaching staff and lost on the rest of the population of the entire world.

Up vote from me for the simple fact that it DOES seem to me that Urban has just basically tried to reshape absolutely everything that was working so well last year to fit Cardale. That's my problem with it. It's like he owes Cardale something. He has gone completely away from a record setting offense to fit Jones instead of grooming the qb's (and not using the B1G season record holder for td's which should be a capital offense) to fit what has worked every year since he has been here. The offense was never a problem. It was always the defense, and when we got that ironed out, we were great. He, with Jones (whining on Twitter and all), have taken the whole thing two steps back. I just hope next year it's back to normal.

I'm with you. I have no idea what has gone on behind closed doors and in practice, but I think it kind of sucks how this is shaking out for JT. I have no idea at all how you tell him he can play "mop up" this year and hope he is happy just to be a team player when if he just didn't break his damned ankle in the last reg season game, HE would have led us through the playoffs. Ridiculous. 

  I also agree that Urban feels he owes Cardale something, or he made a promise to him. That's the only explanation. 

Comment 17 Sep 2015

I personally don't want to see Cardale throw 70 yard bombs off of his back foot. I don't want to see him throw ANYTHING off his back foot. You step into throws at qb. Back foot throws get you in trouble. My humble opinion means nothing, and I'm aware of that, or JT would have been out there from VT on. To add to the list of qualities that other people have listed above, I'd always been impressed with JT's ability to change the play at the line if need be, and direct action on the field. I just do not think Cardale is there yet from the sample size that the fans like myself have seen. Not to mention he runs (and fakes) the read option much better. That play set is just not nearly as potent with Cardale. Those back-foot bombs into coverage, tho...

Comment 07 Sep 2015

I merely meant that I'm not going to change my team alliance because I was rooting for JT to start.  Nothing more.  Everyone, I just feel bad for the kid, that's all.  No need to roast me.  Has to be hard for him.  Most backups don't ever play meaningful minutes, much less are heisman finalists, then are a clipboard jockey.  That's all.  K?

Comment 07 Sep 2015

I just feel bad for the kid.  I mean, if Cardale won it fair and square, that's fine.  It's just gotta be rough as all hell going from a Heisman finalist to holding the clipboard.  It's probably never happened before.  I know I'm the weirdo that's not all like "we have TWO awesome qb's", but I just feel bad for the dude.

You could also have listed Dave "Snake" Sabo from Skid Row.  Still have the Gutiar World from '94 with he, Dimebag, and Ace on the front.  Dime and Snake had the Space Ace makeup on.  It was then that I realized how much of the music I was growing up on was influenced by KISS.

He suffered a stress fracture in his foot in the summer before his junior year at the Pan Am games.  Still, in his final (Junior) year at OSU he put up his best numbers and was NPOTY.  Where the injury thing got to him was in the NBA.  He was averaging like 25 a game for the Mavericks, and he went down with a nasty ankle injury - and after THAT was never the same.  Soon after were all of the trades and hopping around the league that he did.  Managed to play in the NBA for 14 years, and have his jersey retired in the Schott though...not bad at all.

Roosters beats the absolute holy hell out of a hack job like Chipotle every day of the week and twice on Sunday. I continue to have only a whopping two #takes that I actually agree with DJ on. OSU athletics are good, and cats are kings. On everything else, he's so off the mark it's almost antagonistic. But hey, it takes all types. Oh, and free content.

And he will not only get a slap on the wrist, but will be doing financially better than 99% of hardworking folks that have never even thought to hit a woman in their life. There are literally no consequences in life for the American pro athlete short of Hernandez killing someone. Hit a woman in front of her kids and threaten someone else?  No problem: get PAID. You may turn on a TV somewhere or sell a ticket or jersey, so who gives a shit if you are a horrible human being?  If you can get to the QB consistently, consider your debt to society paid, sir. 

Comment 17 Mar 2015

I love cats. I love Ohio State. Other than those two cold hard facts, I am finding that I pretty much disagree with almost every damn one of DJ's #takes he has ever had. I am in no means trying to find fault in another's opinion, or coming close to complaining about a free site, but we just are pretty far away from aesthetic brotherhood. It was pretty funny to see him eat his hat about Manziel, and I wish there was a way to make this happen for most of his rotten #takes.

Due to their reputation for having a pleasant temperament, sulcata tortoises are sometimes kept as pets, despite presenting significant challenges. They require large enclosures, temperatures above 60F (16 °C), and bedding composed of grasses or grass-based hay. Due to their high dietary fiber needs, grasses form a minimum of 75% of their food intake. To remain healthy, they require sufficient calcium for bone and shell development, low protein, and minimal fruit or sugary foods. Whereas wild tortoises obtain enough calcium from the soil, pets generally require calcium supplements. Young sulcatas grow quickly and can double in size each year during the first three years.

Per CITES, a zero annual export quota has been established for C. sulcata for specimens removed from the wild and traded for primarily commercial purposes.[citation needed] Due to excessive captive breeding and removal from the wild, many rescue centers are full and unable to accept more. American Tortoise Rescue discourages the breeding and selling of the species.[5]
