Greetings from across the pond! It was a little bit of home, waking up to the Skully this morning. Well done, DJ!

Good to see Earle out and doing his thing. Alzheimer's sucks, and he's to be commended for his work to find a cure.

I've been in London four days and have seen two people with some sort of Buckeye gear on already (one baseball hat, one golf shirt). Way to represent!

Comment 23 Aug 2015

Agreed. I think it's going to be close until the 4th quarter, when our superior talent and conditioning wins out.

Comment 16 Aug 2015

Would you consider "fighting to make others free" absurd as well?

Comment 08 Aug 2015

You can bet your Buckeye necklaces that if we're undefeated going into The Game, we're going to hear about the parallels to 1969 over and over again.

My dad, a prof at OSU's dental school back then, is already going over the similarities. He still has a black armband, with the Buckeye score in red and the scUM score in blue, that he found on his desk the Monday after the 1969 game. He never did find out who made it.

Even Joe Walsh? I've seen them three times in the last two years...don't hate me.

Comment 07 Aug 2015

OMG...I just had a mental picture of a Saban/Hillary bedroom encounter...it may turn me off forevermore.

Comment 07 Aug 2015

I don't hate the SEC per se. I really despise the ESPN-ers who feverishly pump up the whole conference, not just the three or so teams that are actually any good...while sleeping in the same bed with said conference. 

Makes me sick. So, my vote goes to the king of said puffery, the douchebag extraordinaire...M. May. Rot in hell.

Comment 03 Aug 2015

Hounds. Grown-ass men pushing grannies aside to grab up armloads of jerseys really piss me off.

Gators. I actually spent money and went to that abomination in person. Truly hell on earth.

Truthers, because, well, they're the U right?

The SEC. I hope they slide back into obscurity, never to be heard from again.

What was Iowa's AD going to say, really?

"Well, yeah, I screwed up. Ferentz had a good year, a few places came sniffing around, and I panicked. You can bet your ass I'll never do that again!"

Comment 22 Jul 2015

Beautifully done. Thank you.

Comment 16 Jul 2015

I'm sure Coop is a good guy, but I hated it when he would refer to his own players by number. I really think he didn't know who they were! Couldn't believe it.

Comment 15 Jul 2015

MLB will forgive anything...as long as you kiss their ass. Pete doesn't kiss anybody's ass.

Let him in.

Comment 12 Jul 2015

I remember bitching to a Tennessee coworker that Cooper couldn't seem to grasp the importance of The Game. (Hell, that's why we hired him...he beat ttun in a bowl game!) 

She said in that southern drawl, "Sit him down, point at the Michigan team, and say 'You see them? That is Alabama.'"

Comment 12 Jul 2015

I think this will be Urban's biggest challenge this season: managing the hype and expectations surrounding this team. Ensuring that they are confident but not overconfident; proud but not arrogant; having fun but taking every game seriously. As the late W.W. Hayes said...when someone praises you, kick them in the shin.

Expect him everyone to play out of their minds this year.

Comment 27 Jun 2015

Not to mention that dogs need rules and loving discipline (like toddlers), and dogs want to be dogs, not your fantasy lover/child.

The only time I ever medicated my dog was on a vet's recommendation. Doggie downers for thunderstorm phobia. The poor thing went through hell if I didn't give her something.
