Since Winston isn't a Buckeye, I think it's kind of funny watching him crash and burn with such regularity.

Comment 23 Aug 2014

Every spring and summer we hear of at least one player, usually a incoming freshman who is setting the world on fire. This year it was Curtis Samuel. I'd be surprised if he got much playing time at all and maybe just two or three plays a game his way.

One of the reasons there is this obsession to remove Indian nicknames from sports teams is because they are considered a minority and as we all know in America, nothing positive ever happens to someone who is a minority. Think about this: Who names their teams after weaklings or sissy's? No One. You name your sports teams after people who are brave and noble. People who are strong and courageous. People who you admire. The main reason the push is on to remove these nicknames is because some people in this country will not tolerate a minority group being reflected in a positive manner so they must be removed. Chief Wahoo is a example. That image is not intended to represent the Indian nations of the country. It's a cartoon people. If we eradicate all mentioning of anything Indian in our favorite pastime, that being sports, then the intolerant people will have won and Indians as a whole will have lost.

The Native Americans have employed this strategy forever. Develop an all-star and trade him for a couple of sure fire can't miss prospects that rarely do anything. The Indians may be the most prolific farm team baseball has. Look at the recent years with the talent we've just given away: Cliff Lee, CC Sabathia, Manny Ramirez, Jim Thome and probably others I've forgotten about. Is it any wonder why were dead last in attendance?

I've been an observer of Ohio State sports longer than most of you have been alive. The Columbus Dispatch, while better than they used to be, has always run cover for Ohio State. The reason the Dispatch released this audio tape now was to back up Ohio State's decision to fire Waters and further cement the idea that Waters and his program were out of control and had to go.

I think they already do that. I know most schools (including Ohio State) bring in everyone from compliance people to the FBI to talk to players and coaches about the rules and guidelines so there is a clear understanding of what you can and can't do. It doesn't matter. If a player or coach who is inclined to cheat thinks the reward is greater than the risk of getting caught, then they will break the rules.

I think Harris ends up at Kentucky. Don't know why, I just do. As far as the "Crystal Ball" goes. Ashley is a young lady who works as a waitress at Dare Devil's pizza near Nags Head on the OBX. Her dad is a OSU grad and she's a big fan as well. The information I get from Ashley is just as accurate as the "Crystal Ball"

Now that we've signed up all of the cable companies in the NYC and DC areas, do we still have time to tell Rutgers and Maryland to hit the road?

That photo a couple days ago of Joe Germaine in his classic Ohio State uniform makes me sad when I realize we're going to have to look at that chromish helmet with blue-turquoise Buckeye Leaves for our big games again this year.

When I was a kid, I snuck/sneaked into Ohio Stadium and ran on the field pretending to be Archie Griffin vs Michigan.

"Fight the Team" is better than "Buckeye Battle Cry"

When I was dating my wife, who was a Michigan grad, I would buy her a present so after the game, if Ohio State won, she wouldn't feel so bad. Then the Cooper years came and not only didn't she buy me a present, she would laugh at me and rub the loss in.

The thing about the drive in the '97 Rose Bowl is that forever Ohio State was the victim of these last minute drives. I don't know how many big games we've lost over the years due to the other team scoring the winning touchdown with seconds to go. We turned the tables this time. After ASU scored on the scramble by Plummer, Germaine led the team methodically down field and not only won it for us, but put a dagger in ASU as well. Elation all around.

I like football as much as the next guy, but no one cares about a football game in June. By the looks of the photo, there were just a couple hundred people at best in a high school stadium so is the interest really there? If there are some people who want the game to be played, then play the game. But don't expect the top players to come out in droves for a totally meaningless exhibition game.
