Born on the banks (not literally) of the Mississippi River in Onalaska, WI (LaCrosse) in 1964. Raised on the banks of the Olentangy since 1968. Can almost hear Keith Jackson saying that last part in a way that only he can.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching Buster Douglas knock out Mike Tyson on a giant rear projection tv in my parents house. Oh, and a little thing called the 2002 National Championship. That was stressful as hell, but worth the suffering.

Snowman. What a perfect name for a guy who melts when the heat is on.

Oh man...sorry to bring that up!  I'm guessing you were on that 2011 team that had the seven game stretch of being out scored like 400-14?  Once I read your post the first thing I thought was "had to be Westland".  I'm a Davidson grad, so few people can remember when that was still a rivalry game.

Thanks man, and too funny about your kids!  Distractions and commercials are the worst when the game is still in doubt. Sometimes I'll DVR the first hour and then start watching to speed through the delays and pause when my little boy starts climbing on me, or my wife wants to talk about her work week. It's torture I tell you!

Oh I know, right?  My Dad loves to tell me what play he would have called, when one of Urban's plays doesn't work out. "They're paying him how much money to call plays like that?" This from a guy who played backyard ball sixty years ago.  "I'm serious, I'd do it for free".  Sure Dad, maybe you can ring the sideline and get someone to send in your plays.

Yeah that reminds me of another type of person I can't watch with. The "diehard" Buckeye fan that actually can name about three starters, yet bitches about coaching, personnel and play calling from start to finish. Don't we all know that guy?

That has to be Kevin Feder behind Burrow, doesn't it?  I mean Joe is 6' 4" and looks short in that pic. That dude looks primed for WWE!

EDIT: Looks like Brandon Bowen now that I look at it closer. He's a mere 6' 7".

When I become President, I promise that you will be able to see all of the UV/DV activity from your posts in one place - the Recent Activity section under "My Account". Who wants to visit each individual message they post, just to check? 

Also I will create a DM function to make it easier for members to contact each other. Along with a block function of course!

For what we pay each month for this site, you would think this stuff would be included already!

Yep, I agree. Birm doesn't provide "more info" on a possible commit - just the commitment itself. Sounds like someone else is re-opening their commitment. Hope I'm wrong, but when you're talking about high profile kids, there are always people in their ear making them second guess their choices. Having depth and skill at so many spots is a good thing, but it's also a talking point for other programs trying to get kids to flip. Most of these top kids are used to being the top guy on the team and can't stand the thought of red-shirting or playing behind someone else.

I should not be old enough to remember this, but the other guy reporting with Dave Kaylor appears to be the late Roy Briscoe for all you old timers out there. He started at WBNS in 1960, so yeah that one took me awhile! 

Comment 30 Jul 2015

There is an obvious joke to be made here with the black cat, but well, um....never mind. 

Comment 29 Jul 2015

Really awesome to see that Doug Lesmerises kept the legend of Fong alive and wrote such a cool piece about a super humble, hard-working kid like Chris. I'd love nothing more than to see him take a few snaps before the season ends to reward all the hard work. I'm not sure how long the list is of kids who never played High School football, but have a National Championship ring. For me, Fong will always be right there at the top. Great story of what it means to be a Buckeye! 

Comment 27 Jul 2015

I worked for years near N 4th and Detroit and then East 11th and Fields in a cinder block building with one glass block window. Daytime was safe enough, but when the sun started to go down it was like Will Smith in "I Am Legend".

Keep the ball out in front of you and look the ball into your hands son. Keep at it and you'll get the technique down.

Damn!  Yeah I could see Terrell looking like Vern as well after Coach Mick gets his hands on him. 

Comment 25 Jul 2015

Terrell Hall is going to have one of those Alonzo Spellman body types. For those of you wondering what ever happened to Alonzo? Well, um, this comes from Wikipedia, so it must be true: "Spellman struggled transitioning after his career ended. Eventually, he found his niche as a donkey wrangler. He is on the forefront of this career, and is now a world renowned donkey wrangler".  People, you can't make this stuff up!
