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.

Keep paying it forward, Mr. Decker, as I have no doubt you will. You are a perfect example of what an Ohio State football player is supposed to be - great on the field, and greater still off of it.

"It was very important to Woody to visit those families. He said that the boys were making such a sacrifice, it was the least he could do."

I think the old ball coach would be very, very proud of Taylor Decker's words - not because he is an excellent football player, but because of the type of young man he has demonstrated himself to be with those words. Combine this with the story of Jeff Heureman (and the entire team really), Coach Myer and Jacob Jarvis and you have an example why we must celebrate this team with all we have - because as a football team they are rare, and as men they are special. Yes, Coach Hayes is smiling on his boys.

King Cardale, EzE, JT, Lee and "Shrugs" Bosa (et al)are all solid bricks... but no matter how strong the bricks, a foundation cannot be laid without mortar - and Grant, Spencer, Bennett, Heureman and all the other senior were that mortar. They bound this team with heart, commitment and leading by example. Thank you men. The TEAM could not have accomplished what it did without you. You are and ever will be Buckeye legends.

I have one edit for DJ's awesome moniker for our now infamous 3rd String QB...

The Iron King, Cardale "Cassowary" Jones, Poacher of Badgers, Controller of Tides, Slayer of Ducks, Troll Sultan, and 12th Son of Ohio.

Cassowary kills badgers, elephants and ducks. Lesson 1... don't mess with "Cassowary" Jones.

If I didn't know any better I'd say that crazy old man in the background has enough cocaine in his bloodstream to kill a yak.

No... lately just a bunch of Badgers, a herd of Elephants and a whole bunch of Ducks. And help force Mark May to eat his own shit sandwich!

"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."  Ezekiel 25:17

They normally would be doing so, but we just beat up their best SEC friend and they're much too wimpy to take such a bold stand on their own without backup. As it is most of them will be eating a steaming pile of crow when we do win. Can anyone name even one ESPN talking head that gave us any chance at all - aside from Herbie, Eddie, Joey or Clark (and those guys only out of school pride)?
