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.

Will let the year play out. No alarm bells yet. Still would have hoped we looked farther along. It's the first game, but these kids have experience now. I do not want to belittle Navy at all, but in a high level game, we'd be in real trouble.

When we play a service academy, I think about the unbelievable discipline that these kids have. That alone makes these games harder. However, I also am waiting for some cohesion from OSU. It's a problem.

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.
