i played four years of club level rugby at Ohio U when i was an undergrad there.  mind you, i'm 5'2" tall and was about 135lbs soaking wet.  but i started A-side for two-plus years and held my own against some haases, including a guy who (rumor had it) was a backup tailback for Miami (of Ohio).  okay, this post sounds lamer than i was hoping...

i have two little kids now so binge watching is a thing of the past. 

however, before i had kids, i lived in a fifth floor walk-up in NYC.  i tore my ACL in 2008 and post surgery i was stuck on the couch and didn't leave my apartment for a week.  during that week, i watched all five seasons of the wire.  best. show. ever. though i barely remember the first few seasons due to the percoset (sp) and i was close to having bed/couch sores.

^^ this is why i voted for clay travis or whatever his name is.   Bama would beat us?  um, didn't we settle that hypo two weeks ago??!!

Comment 12 Jan 2015

dude, you and OP can relax.  the outcome of the game always hinges on whether I, Buckeye-In-DC, am holding the remote in the correct position, in the correct hand.  so chill and leave the pressure to me!!

Comment 08 Jan 2015

a friend of mine who lives in Columbus leaves the stadium if it's close in the fourth quarter, but only for away games.  he was at the NCG against Criami in AZ and HE LEFT THE STADIUM IN THE FOURTH QUARTER AND DID NOT RETURN!!   he was not at the game against Bama this year, but will be in Dallas on Monday.  Here's hoping he doesn't have to leave the stadium.

to be clear, i'm not saying Oregon IS a paper tiger, just that if we can rattle Mariota like he hasn't been rattled before this season, the Buckeyes will win comfortably.

Comment 08 Jan 2015

 MW, i totally agree.  if Mariota throws a pick, is inaccurate and/or our D line gets some sacks/pressure on him consistently (but doesn't give up big scrambles), then I think we win going away.  This of course assumes their D doesn't slow down our O dramatically.

it's not a picture, but rather some new news (new to me, at least) that R-FR Michael Ferns is transferring from Michigan to WVA:

Washington, DC here, since 2009.  Before that NYC from 1998 to 2009.  Spent a few years in (cough cough) for law school.

Born and raised in Cincinnati, went to Ohio U for undergrad.

posted this in a different thread, realize it's relevant here too:

saw this gem on SBNation, where they flip-flopped OSU and Baylor because "the Buckeyes now have an immediate transitive loss to Wake Forest, maybe the country's worst power-conference team."  http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2014/11/23/7270227/bowl-projections-2014-college-football-playoff-predictions

I actually thought the article was joking until I realized it isn't.

Braxton2Devin, i logged in just to downvote your ignorant statement, but apparently your downvotes are (justifiably) already maxed out.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

glad there's a thread on this, was gonna create my own to say that brown looks great tonight!

Comment 02 Aug 2014

I live in DC and was stoked when Maryland joined the B1G if anything so that I could take the friggin Metro (DC's subway) to see the Buckeyes play once every two years for football, to say nothing of BBall, wrestling, etc.

So bummed that this year's football game at Maryland falls on Yom Kippur, which is the holiest day of the Jewish year; in other words, I can't go!!! argh.

Comment 09 Dec 2013

"six games into the season"?  heck, after the Michigan game *one* week ago, folks were still in denial about the defense (and echoing LF's "we won, didn't we?" line and sentiment).
