Serenity Now. Insanity Later. Have one parental unit from Cleveland, OH, another from Buffalo, NY. Needless to say, I've lead a tortured sports life. But grew up a passionate and loyal sports fan just like both sides of my family. Confused as a child, my parents would often alternate jammies between the Bills, Browns, and Buckeyes. Love my teams, love my family, love living in Columbus, OH.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Other than 2002 National Championship, they have been few and far between! Probably my favorite was the 1986 AFC Divisional Playoff, Jets at Browns. It looked like a dire situation, Browns down 10 with just over 2 minutes to play. But Bernie Kosar (greatest QB ever, next to Otto Graham), pulled out a miracle to tie it and send it to OT. In one of the longest playoff games in NFL history, the Browns secured a win in second OT via straight on field kicker Mark Mosely's FG. Bernie threw an NFL playoff record 489 yards. The following week in the AFC Championship vs Denver in Cleveland....we all know what happened there. Was it worth even winning vs the Jets to have to suffer the moment the following week? You bet it was.

Face it, our early season competition isn't that great. Although NIU and VT have great programs, but tOSU should be dominating (on paper). Since this is "sort of" preseason, give JT all the reps this week and let him start. Cardale has had his early season opportunities and has not delivered. I think the team as a whole is experiencing the NC hangover. They better get it together soon, or tMSU is going to wax us. It's early, still time to get it rolling.

Chick is eating a banana? I barely noticed. King Kong reference I'm assuming...
