Thanks everyone for the quick responses! Go Bucks!

Oh yeah, I had no thought that I'd actually get a room near campus.  Figured I'd have to get a room and drive back towards campus, though a cab or this COTA service do seem like better options with problems with parking and the whole wanting to have a few drinks while down there stuff.  I hit hotwire and found something in the Lewis Center area for about $70 after taxes.  Might just go with that.

Great article. On top of all of this impressive stuff that's pointed out in this article, it should be noted that he is absolutely one of the most interesting and accessible people through social media. I've personally had a handful of exchanges with him on twitter and he seems to really enjoy the fan interaction. Wish nothing but the best for him.

I'm too young to pretend anything before the mid 1990s meant anything to me. I'm 29 but since my Dad was only a professional football fan, I did not get into college football until my later teenage years. With that said, my favorite The Game moments are : 5. 2001. The sweater vest came in and got things done. 4. 2013. Yes, last season's game meant very little. Yes, UM sucked. Yes, it was frustrating to watch our Buckeyes struggle. Still, I got to attend this game which was my first trip to The Big (Out) House and only my second Buckeye game in person. Plus, it was pretty exciting. There was also the tussle with Wilson and the flipping of the bird. 3. 2006. Game of the Century. There's really no explanation needed right? 2. 2008. It was a blowout. 42-7 and had no meaning in the grand scheme of things but this was my first, and so far only, live game I've gotten to see at the Shoe (the secondary market is just way too expensive for me on a typical basis). I was so fired up. I still remember leaving and feeling physically drained and a little sore just from jumping and exerting so much energy cheering ha. It was an experience! 2002. I actually remember this entire season so vividly. I'm not sure any of us that watched this game or the title game vs Miami sat down at all. If we did it was maybe during commercial. Fond, exciting memory.

Right, he COULD have and he most definitely should have. But hell, if he didn't for his shot at the NBA he most definitely wouldn't have tried getting better for another season where he was comfortable. Disappointing. But I get it, I can't stay away from donuts and pizza either.

You lost me at Kobe Bryant being a top defensive player. He hasn't been considered that in at least 5 years ha. Ross probably did make a mistake, but then again how high could his stock have risen? He'd still have all those same deficiencies.

Great, great article.  I personally was clenched up in every big moment this last season anyways, just the effect Buckeye football has on me.  The stuff this article refers to is the unmatched beauty of college football.  I can't wait.

Appreciate the updates! I don't follow basketball recruiting as thoroughly as I do football recruiting because 1) Football is my first love and 2) following recruiting in football is hard enough ha 

 

but it's great to see tOSU is building a rep in basketball too.

I don't think DT would have benefited, NBA wise, from staying for his senior year.  He'd still be a tweener without elite athleticism and in a better/deeper draft.  If anything, he'd have been better leaving after last season instead.  

Comment 29 Jun 2013

Yeah, I don't hate SA, just have to root against them as a Laker fan.  Much respect to those guys though and really, DT couldn't find a better situation.

Comment 29 Jun 2013

That game was marvelous and I wasn't even attending the school yet (was in the Army then) ... Lance Moore's little brother Nick had a big day didn't he? If I remember correctly.  I hope to maybe go to Grad school at tOSU so I can fully be a member of both the Rocket and Buckeye communities.

Comment 29 Jun 2013

And the Toledo/Canes game in Toledo.  I'm currently a Rockets student and we're always amped to see "name" schools come to the Glass Bowl.  When we hit Miami, it'll at least be a nice vacation and a quiet, enjoyable day on the football field.  Unless a 75 person wave is intimidating.

Comment 29 Jun 2013

I love my Buckeyes, but it's getting harder and harder to root for them in the NBA the last couple of years.  I'm a Lakers fan (Dont flame me! wasn't because of them winning, I chose them before I ever watched a game of basketball because my LA-born brother in-law loved them and I wanted to be like him) and with Sully going to Boston and Thomas headed to San Antonio, I've wept a little.  

Now, if Craft ends up in Miami? I'm going insane.
