I have been fortunate enough, one way or another, to get tickets most years. I support the team with my heart and soul. I am standing and cheering my ass off most every home game. My part is much less than those playing the game, but I am doing my damnedest with that 1/105,000 share that I have.

Taking a more of a "glory days" approach, I played against players who went on to play for OSU. They didn't need me, but again, I did my small, little share to help sharpen their skills. 

I graduated from OSU and aside from my house, my degree is the most expensive thing I have ever bought. I believe with that I have earned the right to say "We" in the proper context. I know my place and I'm not taking anything away from anyone, but this is My Team and I love Buckeye Nation. We are all Buckeyes!

If we could shake Texas loose by getting OK we would. The only other team we'd likely consider would be Kansas because they are the #3 money maker in the conference. They are basketball royalty while it would be a loser in football, it would be a coup if you could get those three. Plus it adds another travel partner a little bit closer for TX and OK. According to reports back when the B1G was doing its homework on OK, one of their concerns was distance traveled to other B1G institutions. Adding Kansas would help alleviate that concern. Of course, who would be 18??????!!!???

You bring in Oklahoma to land Texas. Think of it as a two-fer, and the lower half of that tandem is still a top 10 or 15 program in the nation.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

Yup. And to add on point #1, the B1G was looking seriously at Oklahoma and part of it was to sway Texas. Texas is the crown jewel and getting them would allow some bending of the rules regarding taking a travel partner who isn't AAU.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

Yeah, they used to recruit Texas primarily and I recall going to Cali occasionally. This move has hurt their recruiting for sure.

Comment 26 Jul 2015

With the GOR in the B12, I think for anyone to poach, you would have to destroy the conference with someone taking Texas and Oklahoma and another conference or two picking off a few more. If the conference implodes, you don't have to worry about the GOR. Otherwise it seems like a pretty strong deterrent.

I was going to say the same thing. Based on the dickheads who were sitting in front of me the last time Cincy came to town, they are too low as well.

I hope the Cranberry Bog Nature Preserve survives. I got married at the yacht club out on Buckeye Lake because my father-in-law was a commodore out there for a while. He still lives out there and said that the area is hurting. Good luck to you. I hope you weren't planning on moving any time soon.

Remy, what's it like out there in Buckeye Lake with all the water drained?

I was going to come on here and post "In before ASIP Wild Card, Bitches! Gif" but you were way ahead of me.

I might have a few more, but puns are your Trevon Forte.

You're right JamesRBrown, we wouldn't want this thread to become Michael Lawless.

Earle, I'll Aaron Parry your criticism with some more clever wordplay.
