I grew up in Strongsville, OH and went to Ohio State from 2001-2005. I moved to Greenville, South Carolina and have been here since.
I think we are a very spoiled fan base. Losing four games in a row sucks, no matter how you cut it. However, this team has the ability to play very well. I saw that in the game versus Michigan State. What matters is how they respond to this losing streak and come tournament time, they may have learned a lot about each other and gel at exactly the right time.
As always, Go Bucks!
Meant to upvote you, sorry about that.
When Coach Tressel named an interim coach when it seemed he would be unable to coach for a short period of time, why did he appoint Luke Fickell instead of Heacock?
Do you really know he can sing too?
Jax--i would site Clmm297's comment above as an example of a good comment.
I would encourage you to offer constructive criticism instead of blatant bashing. People on this board like to have honest conversation and debate with the understanding that the majority of us are die hard Buckeye fans.
I went to OSU from 2001-2005. Tuition was about $7800 my first year and about $9000 my last year. Sometimes I think people get confused with overall cost (tuition plus rent/living expenses) compared to tuition costs alone.
I also remember that OSU was a great value compared to other Ohio state schools. For example, my sister went to Kent State and her tuition was much more expensive than mine.
If I remember correctly, I never had to pay the fee that accounted for the RPAC. Although I wish that facility had been there because we went to Jesse Owens which was adequate but not great.
I saw some comments that Deshaun is hurt. Can someone elaborate?
Ravenel seems to be playing more confident since coming off the bench
I personally enjoyed reading bad dog's take. I think it's fun to have a lively debate and his article sure did start one.
This analogy comes to mind...you know how your sibling can bug the heck out of you and amongst other siblings you'll critize them. But if someone outside your family, say your friend or one of their friends, criticizes them then you are the first one to defend them? This is what his argument reminds me of. I'm wondering if bad dog wouldn't be the first to defend Thad and the Bucks to anyone up there in Maine (I'm guessing that's where he lives) but amongst fellow Buckeyes he poses this argument/topic specifically geared towards talking about how our already high caliber program can possibly continue to raise the bar?
It looks like Bad Dog's standard is success in the NBA. And using that as a standard, Diebler isn't spectacular.
Can you imagine what his Santonio Holmes and/or Tim Tebow tattoos look like?
I guess I didn't spur much debate/conversation. I thought for sure that the comment about Amedeo being Diebler-like would illicit a comment because it is pretty darn far fetched--wishful thinking at least.
Gives me chills.
I was at the Chicago St. game and same thing--he had a crazy dunk at the end of the game and some people that were leaving stood still and decided to stick around and watch the rest of the game.
If Thompson could just get his short jumper to fall consistently it would help round out his offensive game.
His dunks are amazing.
Did anyone read anything about the new court? It reminds me of UFM's quote, "We want to make the great state of Ohio proud". Seems like the court coincides with that sentiment.
I can relate. I moved to South Carolina in 2005 and up to that point I would have said that I'd never root for UM under any circumstances. However, Shamerock fans (I like your nickname for them) are beyond obnoxious. A mix between that and the fact that they are in the SEC which I have to hear about daily, like you said, means I would like to see UM beat the fake USC by a point.
There's nothing more unifying than the love of your university. Go Bucks!
Thanks for sharing, will keep you and your father in my thoughts.
Awesome story about your Dad. Go Bucks! Beat Michigan.
I'm screaming the same thing! I knew they would do that. Very aggravating.
Great read! Although I think all 3, although alike, are very different of course, this is very thought provoking.
