I neglected to mention that i too hate the usually lame atmosphere at the Shoe.  since 1999, i've flown or driven from NYC or DC to columbus for an average of 1 or 2 games per year.  over the last five or six years i am told at least once a game to sit down and be quiet (my seats are usually mediocre ones in C deck).  it kills me that people not only don't stand and don't cheer, but that when others do, they ask them to sit down and be quiet.  as others here have posted - those people should give up their tickets to people who will contribute something to game-day atmosphere, and the lamos should just watch at home...

historical sin:  i left Ohio State law school after my 1L year, and transferred to. . . TTUN law.  so it's bad enough i bolted from OSU, but worse that i transferred to TTUN, and even worse that i have a diploma with a big M on it.  the transfer was, of course, purely a business decision (given SCUM law school's ranking at the time) though i felt incredibly guilty about it then and still to this day. 

for the record, i proudly wore scarlet & gray around campus and especially when OSU came to Ann Arbor during my third year of law school, AND i sat right in the middle of the student section for that ultimately-sucky game (November 97, Woodson's Heisman clinching game). 

further for the record, i do not hang my law degree on my wall at work.

more recent sin:  after the MSU and Clemson losses, then VaTech, i too wondered whether OSU had gotten a washed-up Urban.  maybe not washed up per se, but i feared that his new, less intense self -- per his agreement with this family -- didn't have the same juice as the 10000% all-in Urban that led to multiple Gator championships (and ultimately Urban's health/mind implosion).  happily, i was way off...

go bucks!

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.

wow, sounds good but i had a heart attack just reading about it!

Comment 13 Jan 2015

^^ 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.

Comment 08 Jan 2015

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:

Comment 10 Dec 2014

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.
