Ohio guy. Brief stint in Indiana for school but brought my talents back to the Buckeye State.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Indiana game 2011.
    First game with my Dad since 1993. Hit the Skull Session, had decent seats, GREAT weather, Braxton set a school record, Bucks pulled out a victory, and to top it off after the game we got our picture taken with Gordon Gee and Gene Smith.
    I'll remember that day the rest of my life. That is what it's all about folks.

If you say the NC ties him with Archie, then I say the two Heismans separates Archie from Zeke.  

Saying Zeke would've eclipsed Archie's records is valid. He probably would have.  But he didn't. Times are different and he's in the pros. That said, this comparison is based on what did happen not what could've happened. Hell, if Beanie stayed healthy and stayed for four years he might have burnt the records to the ground.   

If we're going off of team accomplishments to further promote one guy over the other, Archie's teams won four Big Ten Titles and Appeared in four straight Rose Bowls.  He started in four Rose Bowls and is one of two people to have done that.

Archie is the GOAT.

Archie is the Definition of consistency.    All time leader in yardage.  Two Heismans.  5,589 yards.   31 straight games of 100 yards or more.  

Archie IS the best RB in OSU history.

Two great seasons doesn't put Zeke ahead of Archie.

My favorite:  Eddie.

Best:            Archie.

The Rest:     Zeke.  Beanie.  MoC.  Byars.  El Guapo.  Quiet Storm.

In football time 10 years in an eternity. Look at where Meyer came from and went to in his first ten years. We will be the luckiest program in the country if Meyer stays that much longer. 15 years at a high stress, high stakes place like OSU is a long ass stretch. I hope we get someone from Ohio that understands the position, the tradition, the gravity and the prestige Head Coach at Ohio State carries. Odds are it's a guy out there under all of our combined radar that will explode when just given a shot. Like a guy from a Mac school in North East Ohio. Maybe a championship caliber legend from The FCS. Who knows? There are a lot of Ohio coaching trees in bloom and growing bigger and better every year.

Your middle paragraph is total gibberish.  I read it three times and can only surmise you are saying the players that spoke up are soft or have easily hurt feelings.  If what was alleged is true, that is hardly the case.  Wilson has baggage that demands a clear concise explanation.  I suspect that explanation was given to Meyer during the hiring process. 

Player health and treatment of that health is paramount in today's game. Precisely why we instituted a Rugby Style Tackle with superb results. Results I'm sure you're happy with.  All done in the name of player safety.  If not wanting to be rushed back to play after a concussion is "soft" I think the guy saying it is "soft" is a jack-ass.  Reflect upon that truth.

I wasn't crazy about this guy even being mentioned as a OC prospect after he was "out" at IU. The player treatment allegations were something I wanted no part of. I haven't changed my tune on that, if it's true I think it's really bad. I also expect Meyer to have set expectations out very clearly for Wilson detailing how things are and are not done at OSU. Schematically, I am getting very excited about Wilson's presence.
