Buckeye BadDog

Naples, Florida (via Columbus, Ohio)

I was born on campus - at the Ohio State Hospital - and grew up just outside of Columbus near New Rome (Lincoln Village). I graduated from Westland HS in 1979, lived in a house at Norwich & Fourth for a while (Just a short walk down Iuka Ave to the Oval and the center of the Universe), and then moved to Naples, Florida in 1983. I have been down here ever since, but while I am out of Ohio, Ohio has NEVER been out of me. I have a "Buckeye" room in my house where my Godson slept whenever he came to stay with us - which worked because he is almost as big a Buckeye fan as I am. As a matter of fact, as Carlo Hyde came off the field in his last game at Naples HS, my Godson gave him his prized Buckeye nut and told him that it was great that he was going to be a Buckeye soon.

Oh no, my wife is beautiful... which means she could have never even been admitted to *ichigan. Her cousins who went there are nice looking, but they only went there for Graduate school. Undergrads have a prerequisite that they either never shower or look like an in-breeding experiment gone horribly wrong.

I am related - by marriage - to Tony Boles, who did a lot (108 yds rushing) one year to help *ichigan beat my beloved Buckeyes (along with Kolesar and Hoard). I found this out before we were married... and I married her anyway. And most of her family are *ichigan  fans. Not Sparty, which I could  - grudgingly - live with. No. It had to be the Corn and Blow. Oh well. Its been a lot of fun hearing the silence from that camp the past 10 years.

What about a combined thing, with a shortened form of the Quick Cals with the Hive? And keep it just after the tunnel entrance, so that it is done (like the Hive) as a sort of intro for the team. I must say, I did love the music and swarm-like run the team did after those Hive intros.

And as far as either being "meh," when my Godson was coming out of high school and getting recruited (not by OSU, not good enough, unfortunately) he love that arm lock and rock of the Hive - said how he dreamed of being part of that. It's shallow I know, but things like that do have an affect on 18yo kids.

Due to the checkered pasts of my cats, customs agents denied their entry into the world's maple syrup capital. I am back where I belong, albeit now operating more incognito as I believe at least one of them to be under some sort of federal investigation.

The law will catch up to those cats eventually...

Please don't get mad at me when none of these come to fruition or someone else pledges to Ohio State that I didn't mention. I literally just picked three names that don't have commitment dates set yet but know the Buckeyes lead for them. If they do commit, Crying Jordan me as you must.

1. No one here should expect you to be the new Lord of Whispers... yet. All you will need is one good "get" or prediction to stave off the horde for a while. I'd say you have until mid October. After that...to be Stark, "Winter is coming!"

2. If you are wrong and someone does commit to the good guys at The Opening, a Crying Jordan would not be needed. A Happy Jamarco would be more appropriate. Better to under sell and over deliver than the other way around.

I could not agree more. He was the trailblazer for all that has come since regarding Ohio State football... all that we here love so dearly. I would not be surprised at all to learn that the word "reverberating" was included in the fight song thanks in no small part to the excitement Chic Harley ignited in all who watched him. Perhaps a plaque somewhere near the front doors of Ohio Stadium stating simply... "The House That Harley Built.
