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 haven't been able to throw the ball since Herman was there.  We have given up on those slants and spot passes that would open up the passing.

This article is a nightmare scenario for me. Here go all of my meager helmet awards and any respect, but...I hate them way worse than Michigan. I cannot stand Sparty's rise to the top. Can't STAND it. When OSU rolled one down their legs in football this year, I wanted to die. I know that I'm probably alone on this, but this is like nuclear holocaust to me.

That coach and team are just on a different level. I miss the days when OSU was on that level as well. I am with the people who are of the mind that Matta needs to look long and hard at his staff (namely Paulus) in the offseason. They are doing less with more as opposed to coaches who do more with less.

The second album my mom ever bought for me was "Stay Hungry" with Dee on the front in full makeup and holding that meaty femur!  I was like 6 or 7!  She was from the 60's and 70's and she probably was like "what in the HELL?!", but she bought it, bless her.  She very much wanted me to find my own way in music, and it was part of the process.

If you mean the Unholy Alliance Tour, then I too was there.  I thought that show was one of the best, even if it was a larger arena.  That was the one that really opened my eyes to Mastodon, as well.  Since then, they have been one of my faves.  It was also Lamb of God in their prime.  Good stuff.

  Have seen Slayer a few times now, and they never fail to be high-energy, killer show.

Thing is, I might be able to make a matching thread someday for the Clowns, but their dismal season is always over by now. Would they ever make the playoffs it would be a smack. The Bengals know they will lose first round. Clowns lose all season long. Dulls the senses.

Absolutely agree. When people started mentioning Jalin and Tyvis going pro, I could hardly believe it.  I understand that your friends are leaving and that its in your mindset that you will always be the best, but it's a different level. They haven't shown that they can be the best in college yet, let along be indispensable on a 53 man team where there is always someone else waiting. Those two could have really used another year.

Got to learn how to show grit in games like this. Good W. That said, once again, the Schott is embarrassing. Team gets no lift when it needs the fans.

I hate Finke. In the first half he was just a body, but I've grown to hate him in the last hour. Seems like he has 30 this half.

I'm guessing that AJ didn't play because Lyle is better at getting his shot, but he deserves some pt.
