Not much of a story to tell. I was born and raised in Southeastern Ohio and after I graduated college I moved to the Memphis area where my brother lived (& still lives). Life-long Buckeye fan trapped in SEC country.

Putt Putt course?

Buy your own modem.  I ended up with a much better modem and it got me out of a $7 monthly lease payment for theirs.  It paid for itself in a year.  However, even that wasn't enough to overcome their horrible customer service and I've finally reached my limit.  The Uverse Tech is literally on the way to my house to end my rocky relationship with Comcast once and for all.

One more thing...  If you do need to have a tech come to your house, insist that they send a Maintenance Technician and not one of their contractors.  More likely than not you'll get the problem fixed in 1 visit.  The contractors are more worthless than customer service I didn't even think that was possible.

Navy was my vote in the poll too, Hove, for the exact same reason.  The Buckeyes have the personnel to win every game on their schedule next year but it's the quirkiness of the Navy offense that might pose a problem.

Would love to see the Grizzlies draft Craft.  He'd fit well into their informal motto of Grit & Grind.

I beleive Mark Dantonio is from Zanesville too.  I hated losing to them in the BCG but he's a likeable guy.

Yep, the person on my list is Royce Jenkins-Stone, #52 who ripped Dontre's helmet off.  Not sure if he's even still around but he'll be on my list forever.  Totally classless act.

I heard a story about a Tyson fight against one of the lesser-known opponents and when the referee was talking to them before the fight Tyson said to his opponent "I'm going to beat the hell outta you" to which the opponet replied "I know".  Not sure if the story is true but it's easily believable.  Tyson was a bad man.

I'm really glad he committed to the good guys and look forward to him having an outstanding career.  I laughed out loud at the couple of plays on his highlight film where he made the initial block then went downfield to smash a DB.  This kid is going to be special.

There are a lot of good points on here about who gets to buy the tickets and who gets priced out and I don't dispute any of them.  As a fan, I hate the high ticket prices as much as everyone else, but I'm sure the University looks at this totally from a supply & demand perspective.  Ticket prices will continue to rise until the point that folks stop buying them.  With a fan base as large as TOSU's that may never happen therefore ticket prices will continue to balloon.  Since it's a solid 9 hour drive to Columbus from my home it doesn't really impact me, but even if I was within a reasonable driving distance I would still rather watch from home for all of the reasons that many posters above have stated.

Don't discount the Grizzlies.  They had a terrible 1st half but got the score close in the 2nd half only to let the game slip out of control near the end of game 1 against the Thunder.  What they did, however, was prove that they can be competitive in that series.  If they ultimately lose to the Thunder I think it'll be in 6 or 7 games, but I believe they are capable of winning that series.  Probably doesn't matter because San Antonio has been their nemesis.

That reminds me of the quote that goes something like "We didn't inherit the earth from our parents, we borrowed it from our children".

Little League baseball when I was in 4th grade I came to bat with 6th graders occupying all 3 bases.  The first pitch from the newly-installed relief pitcher was a chest-high fastball that I promptly crushed to centerfield scoring the 3 guys that were on base.  As I reached 3rd the coach was waving me home but I stopped for a 3-run, standup triple.  The field we were playing on didn't have an outfield fence and I didn't want my first homerun to be an in-the-parker.  Finished the game 4-4 batting.

I pitched the first game my 6th grade year and struck out 14 batters (out of 18 total outs) and was 2-3 batting.  Still have the game ball.

First basketball game of my 6th grade year I scored 28 points.

Haven't done jack since then.
