  • SPORTS MOMENT: I was at the shoe when Kieth Byars ran out of his shoe for his fourth touchdown that day. Best day spent with my son at a preseason game prior to his departure for Afghanistan. Four sons all in the military one deployed, one comes home next week, one back from Iraq for a year now and the youngest (fourth) probably will now not have to go.

What's even better about MSU's cover is if any other team uses it when they win, That team will just seem like lame copycats. A perennial winner that just keeps on sticking it to the rest of us.

Cannot beleive tOSU went with that cover, but it is meant to honor this years stars.

Dantonio desrves all the accolades. He has earned them. How satisfying it must have been to knock off tOSU for his first conference championship. Bittersweet most likely, for what could have been.

The man can coach. He went North with an excellent pedigree for defense and now is reaping the rewards. Good for him. I loved the Buckeyes defense under Dantonio.

Now we will have to see who is better. This is a great new rivalry getting started folks.

Ok, but did he  really say "Ohio Sate and Michigan State", or did he say "Ohio and Michigan State" Inquiring minds want  the actual transcript.

NC was caught red handed, but since htey denied it, the case was closed, only after a former player asked "How is it they were not found doing wrong, I never attended those classes". NCAA opened it back up and because a professor was being criminally charged by the state for fraud for taking money for classes he never taught, flipped on a plea deal. Now the NCAA is back in on it.

The signs are all there deny, deny, deny, and the NCAA will go away becuse they do not want to hurt their own cash cow.

Perhaps being a newbie, you might listen to a little advice. You posted your opinion, when others disagree, attacking them is NOT the way to continue an educational dialogue.

When others disagree with your posting, use facts not insults to carry your position.

Just possibly some helpful suggestions.

 Nice information on attendees. I was worried that maybe wewere not getting enough people to show up in posititons of need. Looks like offense is taken care of except no O-linemen?

Gibson is alleged to have a "bruised ankle" and will not be performing at FNL..

My first son (firstborn) was born on Nov 23, 1985, of course the day of The Game. Fortunately he only took two hours to deliver and I was able to hold him and watch the game in the hospital room, another pretty darn good day. Thanks for reminding me of that.

I have the game paper in my "collection" and am having it framed for his birthday gift.

Unfortunately that day UM using Harbaugh and Kolesar ruined that small part of the day.

We still brought our son home with us anyway;)

Since we were not given a choice of "None of the Above", I put in Minny just because that is what all the blather currently suggests. Frankly none of those games should be a trap game. If we are not prepared to play any second tier B1G games, theres no trapping, it is just poor coaching. Expectations do not equate performance drops against allegedly lesser teams.

If the coaches do not have these players ready  for every game it is their failure, for not to seeing it coming, and for not to handling it before they hit the field. Complacency is is the quickest way to lose any chance at a championship seson..

Just 2 hours before the 2006  "The Game" @10;20 am I bagged that 11 point 175 5/8 buck, (icon photo) had him field dressed ,dropped of to the butchers and home to see the kickoff. That was definitley one of my all time  "Good Day to be a Buckeye" days.

I was not even going to hunt that day. I had just got home after a year in Iraq, did not want to hunt anything. However one of my sons was coming home on leave and wanted fresh venison steaks. So the night before I went out bought my license and a tag and Saturday early 0400 the next day I set out went out to bag a nice doe, but I got a little bit more out of that day. Sometimes it just is your turn.

Bravo, Mr. Citro, Bravo!

This is an excellently written piece. Ramzy's don't be an a*shole piece and this should be mandatory reading prior to anyone getting posting privleges.

If it was our son being hammered on these types of sites by obsessive and/or insenstive "fans" none of us would be....... happy.

So easy to criticise from behind the keyboard. Never seeing the harm it brings to a person, who most likely has worked harder than any one of us ever did to make the field playing for the team of our dreams.
