Losing to Saban and MSU in 1998 was rough.

Like, rough.  

Go Buckeyes.

Oh, sure. You question Ferentz's remaining time in Iowa and people UV. I question how he still has that very same job and I get dumped on. Dafuq?

Did you see their schedule?

Won when it didn't matter against puff-pastries and lost HUGE when it was on the line.  You can lay that firmly at the coach's feet.

Bumped into a nice couple of fellow alums in a bar in Narita while slogging through a seven-hour layover to Taipei.  We talked about the the new coach (Tressel) and our feelings about the upcoming season.  Though there was indeed a light at the end of the tunnel, these were still dark times.  I hope that young couple is doing well and enjoying our Buckeyes.

How firm thy friendship, even on the other side of the planet.

Go Buckeyes.

If you were born on third base, something went tragically wrong or your parents have superpowers of procreation.

My mom and I took my daughters to their pediatrician for a checkup last summer.  Vonn Bell's grandfather was there, wearing a Buckeyes cap, which my twins easily pointed out.  Once the nice guy introduced himself as the grandfather of a football player at The Ohio State University, everyone became friends.  I wish I had a photo.  

Good luck, Vonn.  Your grandfather should be proud.

Go Buckeyes.

I like JT.   He's the man for the job.  That being said, would some kind soul please make sure that he has Uber programmed into his phone?  I'm not trying to make light of anything here.  Drunk driving is no joke.  He could have lost a lot more than a one game suspension and driving privilieges.  

This is your year to (again) be the man, JT.  Do it.

Go Buckeyes.
