  • SPORTS MOMENT: Even though it is technically vacated, attending the 2011 Sugar Bowl to watch the Buckeyes beat Arkansas. It's one thing to be among thousands of Buckeye fans in Columbus, but it's a whole different experience to travel far away from the Shoe and be part of the 'migration' of Buckeyes, especially when we win!

I went to school with Elliot, he and his family are some of the nicest, most humble people you would ever meet. It speaks volumes about him and Coach Tressel. Both genuine people that can appreciate people for people and put the game aside under circumstances like this. 

It's an amazing story of strength and triumph under some of the most difficult circumstances. I continue to wish the best for the Mealer family.

As if I wasn't anxious enough for the season to start....only 2 more weeks!!!

I've been told that's the place to be on Saturdays!

If that means virtually year round temperatures in the 70s then I'm okay with that, ha!

Thanks for all of the feedback so far guys....up votes for everyone, I appreciate it! Sounds like the city has a lot to offer. I expected the taxes to be high and cost of living is about the complete opposite from Toledo. While I might not get use to the cost very quickly, at my new job I'll be making more even after accounting for the higher cost of living so if was hard to pass up.

We'll see how it goes, at the very least I will enjoy no snow and lows in the 40s not negative 40s during the winter!

I have to agree that the zoo is something to check out if you have time. The Mud Hens games are fun but they are out of town for the weekend. The art museum is pretty cool too if you're into that, and Imagination Station (formerly Cosi) downtown can be fun for the kids. If you're looking for something to do outside I would suggest going out to Maumee Bay State Park or Wildwood Metro Park. 

I also agree for downtown dining to check out Tony Packo's, Durty Bird, or Pizza Papalis for some deep dish pizza. If it's nice outside the restaurants down on the docks like El Vaquero, Seafood Co. etc. have a good atmosphere. Inky's is a pretty good affordable Italian restaurant in my opinion, and Shorty's has good BBQ. Burger Bar 419 is good as well!

That's awesome! Certainly an accomplishment to be proud of as a parent. Bama is tough but it could be worse if she headed north. I had a full ride scholarship at tOSU so maybe she will snag one too and we'll have another Buckeye!

Either way, congratulations to you and your daughter!

I'm a tropical paradise kind of guy. My favorite spots thus far are Costa Rica, St. Thomas, and Grand Turk. So many beautiful places and things to do in Costa Rica. St. Thomas is peaceful and beautiful, and snorkeling in Grand Turk was pretty cool!

Definitely a neatly trimmed beard. I hate shaving and I rock the beard better than the baby face.

C'mon these kids came to Wisconsin to play football, not to play school so of course not.

But seriously, I doubt you're going to get a bunch of college football players to buy into something like that. I don't buy it.

I went to the Sugar Bowl when we played Arkansas a few years back. Definitely one of (if not the) best games I have been to. It's like Mardi Gras but with thousands of Buckeyes, doesn't get much better than that! 

One of my favorite moments on Bourbon Street was going to the dueling piano bar. One of the piano players played Hang on Sloopy and doing the O-H-I-O. It also helped that we "won" that game. Would love to make it down there again.

I agree, I was a bit surprised how low a couple of the teams rank. Hopefully the Buckeye's offense exploits what seems to be an inflated Wisky defense!

Comment 04 Dec 2014

Don't get me wrong, Wisconsin's defense will be one of the better ones we have seen this season. BUT when you look at the offenses they have faced over the season it's no wonder they have performed so well:

Total Offense (Yards/Game)

Team Rank
LSU 81
W. Illinois 41 (FCS)
BGSU 41
USF 121
Northwestern 110
Illinois 105
Maryland 111
Rutgers 85
Purdue 113
Nebraska 35
Iowa 68
Minnesota 108
Ohio State   11

They have only played 2 top 50 offenses this season with Nebraska's 35th ranked being the best. Ohio State comes in at 11th and of course this is with Barrett. So even if the offense doesn't perform as well with Cardale, Ohio State should be the best offense the '2nd ranked' Wisconsin defense has faced. Distribute to the playmakers and the offense will be just fine in my opinion.
