Davis and Meyer go way back, meeting in college and staying so close that the former served as best man at the latter's wedding.

This may have been observed by someone a little smarter and faster than me, but I feel that this little factoid is this year's, "Did you know that Tom Herman is in Mensa." that will be repeated ad nauseum by color commentators this football season.

Fencing! I've always wanted to fence. Maybe one day.

I took fencing as one of my first GECs at The Ohio State University. It was one of the best classes ever. After watching so many action movies and period shows with sword fights that you think it might be easy and that you will be a swashbuckler. It was good for the ego in that, it makes a 19 year old man humble getting thoroughly beaten by the 70 year old instructor who makes you look like you're wearing cement shoes as you "fence".

Agree. Some beers are just novelties and not meant for anything other than one or two tops. I bought a 6 pack of a coconut porter from some random craft brewer because I had a great one from Maui Brewing Co. when on my honeymoon. I only had the one on my honeymoon and remembered it quite fondly. After trying to get through the six pack, I realized just how different drinking one next to the ocean on your honeymoon is from trying to power through 6 on a cold January evening on your couch in Columbus.

its hard to keep up when a new brewery opens every week

I think there is a craft brew bubble forming and during the next recession we are going to see a lot of unemployed brewmasters. I hope I am wrong but I have tried some that taste average at best. When times get tough, I see quite a few closing shop.

You're right, but I echo TomD's sentiment. Ohio State needs to be able to lock down Ohio's best even while recruiting nationally. I remember the hand wringing that many, myself included, was involved in during Urban's 1st full recruiting cycle and worrying about not placing priority on Ohio talent, not building a fence around Ohio, etc. Obviously my fears were unfounded. That said, if there is a 5 star in Ohio, they need to be playing for Ohio State.

I know a lot of people in both the Fickell is great and Fickell is terrible camps. I lean towards if he wasn't great, he was good and recruited well and his consistency helped a lot with a staff that is constantly turning over. I worry about the Luke Fickell sized hole in our coaching staff.

And Cardale didn't come here to play school. I fully anticipated that guy to leave without being remembered for anything more than a tweet. He taught me a thing or two about patience and having a stellar second act.

Poor Michigan; it signed 30 recruits compared to Ohio State's 21 and only beat the Buckeyes according to the only recruiting service in bankruptcy proceedings.

I had no idea about Scout. I used to belong there before coming over here. Once I found this place, I couldn't believe that I was paying for my info. I guess as a 12th Warrior, I kind of am paying, but its different when you are asked to pay if you can afford it instead of being told that you have to pay.
