I was an usher at the Shoe from 1997 to 2009. When I retired I moved to Allen, Texas (5A football state champs the last two years in a row - ask D. Wilson, M. Mitchell and the future soon to be one of the best linemen to put on tOSU uniform, Mr. Knox about Allen, Texas football). Love the Buckeyes and follow them throughout the year. Shout out to all my friends in section 23A - 25A Radar is alive and well.

As an usher except for having to show up two and a half hours early after a two an a half hour drive, was the pleasure of watching the players walking into the stadium.  No one else there inside but the ushers.  After an away game they would play "The boys are back in town" followed by the Saprano's theme song "Bad moon rising".  Don't know if I got the song titles right but I think you get the picture.  AWESOME SITE!

Great coaches take talented players and make them great players.  We have some of the best of the great coaches.

Time out!  I need a fact check on something I heard last winter.  I heard Urban and Fickell were arguing about the defense in coaching offices after the last two games and Mike Vrebal comes in in the middle of the argument and starts defending his pal Luke.  Then it erupts and the coaches had to keep MV from Urban.  Next thing you know MV is on his way to Texas. Rumor or fact?

I agree get over it.  You can't handle the f&$!#ing thruth.  I know I'm going to get slammed but so what.  Last vent of the day - DJ I don't give a damn about Pres. Harding or Marion but was glad you didn't mention them in today's skull.

As a DL he is going to be run over and dumped on like a construction site this summer. Hang on Tracy earn back the coaches love.

This is just my opinion as a father. Good luck with your decision on which university you choose but first find someone you can talk to and trust with these important decisions.  Don't mess up the rest of and I hope a long and prosperous life.  You have time.  You are a great athlete.  There will be room for you wherever you choose.  Just remember in life that when you burn a bridge you can still go back but it's going to be along way around.

I also agree the defense will be much better, but I don't like opening with Navy.  Not much of a test for the pass protection but tuff for the linebackers and defensive line.  I'm worried about injuries with cheap cut back blocking.

I'm not worried about who's at running back.  I think if we use all the offensive weapons we have and don't depend on anyone we could be unstoppable.  Tight ends boom.  Wilson or Marshall in the flat boom.  Wide receivers, pick one boom. Any of the studs at running back boom.  Braxton Miller in control boom.

I love the hate in Texas.  I wear my Ohio State gear and always get a quip from some Texas or Texas A&M fans.  Even the Oklahoma and Oklahoma State fans show the hate. But the best for me is my golf league has a smuck who wears a scum hat. I tell him to take off his hat every week.  My golf friends say you're going to get into trouble old man and I say it's about respect and he needs to take the hat off because it offends me. O H!

Did you catch Coach Meyer's Photobomb?  By the tree trunk with glasses just above the outstretched hand.
