Everyone has a crazy "When I realized Buckeye Nation was really strong" story, so I guess I'll share mine.
I was on a cruise that went through the Caribbean a couple years back and the ship's first stop was at the cruise line's private beach in Haiti. Although it was private, there was a tented area where locals set up a make shift flea market where they could sell their woodwork or stuff they knitted. etc. Decided to walk through for a second and check it out and while I was in there a Haitian who could barely speak English, pointed to my shirt (OSU) and starting saying "Come! Come! Come!"
So I went to his little stand and he showed me a little bracelet where he had knitted in scarlet and grey with a block O in the middle. I was amazed since the only words I had heard the guy say were come, look, and two dollars. I decided to buy it and as I was leaving the guy said something that I didn't quite understand so I gave him a puzzled look. He then proceeded to put his hands over his head and it was then I realized that he was saying "O-H" So of course I gave him back an I-O.
Something I'll never forget. Buckeye Nation is literally WorldWide.
Verizon's service was really improved this year in the stadium, at least for me it was. Couldn't even send/receive texts before.
Was actually able to stream the Ole Miss-Auburn game at the end of the Illinois game (Blowout) and watch between plays. Caught Treadwells injury/fumble going into the endzone.
D-line will be fine. I would like to see us rotate Washington/Munger/Hill/Schutt all season, the way that we did in the Championship game. Lewis looked solid all year filling in. Too bad that we only had Frazier for one year-guy really improved.
I think the biggest void will be corner. Will be interesting to see if Apple can fill Doran Grant's shutdown role and if Conley/Reeves/Burrows can fill Apple's spot. I assume Conley takes over on the outside and Reeves in the Nickel still. They keep bouncing Burrows back and forth from nickel to safety.
117. Pretty sure it hasn't been taken yet but then again I could be blind.
I remember Mark Mangino hanging around practice about 2 years ago...Could see Warinner to OC and Mangino to the Oline... Not necessarily the sexiest move though.
What's the point of the "Must play 1 game at the actual site" rule?
To prove that the venue is capable of having a college basketball game? Or are they seriously saying that it must be at a "college basketball arena" because 1 game makes the arena a CBB arena?
Yet another to add to the list of announcing "University of Ohio State." It happens so often now it's almost becoming forgivable.
1. His track record of recruiting Texas.
2. Other coaches using it as a stepping stone school and succeeding (Art Briles, Kevin Sumlin)
Can't remember who on the mothership said it the other day...but it was "...the injury to TJ Barrett and now replaced by Kordell Jones"
Going to be deep no matter what, but have to believe that Cardale or Collier (Or both) transfer at some point.
If you look at the date of the occurrence then it seems like it had more to do with perceived narcotics use than having a tiny bit of alcohol in the system
So let me get this straight...They gave him the test at 4:20...on 4/20....
Guys...this was most likely a perceived narcotics OVI...Not because of alcohol. I don't know whether Roby was smoking or not...but want to know why the cops were probably being over suspicious? Check out the date on the citation he posted...4/20
Has anyone heard any update whether Mickey is still planning on coming?
