Michael Citro - I know the hate you speak of as I have lived in Florida. 15 in S. Fla with thiose Hurricane blowhards and 6 in Tampa with the egomaniacal Gator fans.

i enjoy every minute of it. It is like  sunny and 80 degree winter day - relish it and embrace it.

But Coach Hayes - the sky is blue. There will never be blue skies as long as I am coach. Now get me my direct line to God. God this is Woody - I appreciate the work you do; but dag gum it we can't have blue skies here - they must be grey and in no way can the skies become close to the color scheme of TTUN. 

Your right Woody - it won't happen again - grey skies it is - God.

BUCKEYE3M - Once DirecTV came out with the college game day package - I no longer had to worry about the following:

1) Butt heads in the bar

2) Conversing with said Butt heads in the bar.

3) Drinking and then driving.

Plus - I can begin my tailgating at 7:00 am without judgement.

If I gave a rats butt whenever someone said a disparaging thing about the Buckeyes; I would be dead due to a stroke, heart attack or alcohol poisoning. We cannot control what others say - And to the point who gives a $$it anyway.

Carry on 11W nation and let not the words of a few dissuade your from your ultimate joy of watching the Buckeyes reap havoc on those who wish to get in their way.

One game at a time and relish the season!!!

I saw Wood Hayes introduce President Reagan in St. John's Arena during President Reagan's second run.  My professor let us get out early to make sure we got a seat to watch.  When Wood came out; the crowd cheered wildly for a full 15 minutes before he could introduce President Reagan.  President Reagan then made the mistake of re-introducing Woody and took another 15-20 minutes for the crowd to calm down so he could speak. 

Wood Hayes will always be in mind; the greatest coach in OSU History because of his overall presence both on and off the field.

Not embarrassed to say it - But the Big Unit tribute to Zack Farmer brought tears to my eyes. Everything else is unimportant - Stay Strong, Be Strong Farmer family.

Remy - Thanks to the 11W community, the great write ups and forum posts - this is what keeps me sane here in Clearwater among all the Gators, Noles and Canes.

UV @ .996 or 2374 to 8.

Helmet sticker to UV ratio needs to be worked on a bit.

GO BUCKEYES!!!!

Comment 23 Jul 2015

Remy - 2374 UV to 8 DV or .996 ratio - helmet stickers to vote is not 2-1 but I comment judiciously and do not post forum topics to often. I think twice in four years.

Love the sight, the community and the great write ups.

Dear Cancer:  I am sick and tired of you constantly reaping tragedy and misfortune amongst us all.  Here is another person, Zach, who by all accounts was destined for greatness, whether in baseball or in life in general who you are trying to take away.  Zach, you don't know me from Adam but I am sending all the good thoughts and prayers I can to you and your family.  Keep on fighting the good fight. 

Each year my wife and I gather with close to 2,600 other Buckeyes on the Buckeye Cruise Against Cancer.  This will be our 9th year of going on the cruise.  We go in memory of those who have passed; my father (49 y/o), my mother (80 y/o); cousin Mary-Kathryn (48 y/o), my wife's best friend Diane (50 y/o) and my cousin Jennifer (fighting it now at the age of 49 y/o) and all others who are fighting on. On this cruise you will find the best in Buckeye Nation as we try in our small way to contribute to the fight against this wretched disease.

This site reminds me of how great the 11W community is in coming together to provide good thoughts and prayers to one of our own in need.  Thank you 11W and Buckeye Nation - together we can hopefully send enough good thoughts and prayers to Zach and his family to help him in his fight..

Zach - Stay strong, fight on and God Bless to you and your family.

To all who have commented - Thank you as the words which have printed here have expressed my sentiments exactly. I have nothing more to add. God Bless and prayers to the Randall Smith family.

I will be happy with 1st beating Virginia Tech and then moving on to the next game.  Let's not be like certain other fan bases, i.e. Bama who put the cart before horse and pronounce themselves King of all that is worldly.  One game at a time boys, one game at a time.

AIRBUCKEYE - thank you very much for starting my Thursday morning off on a high note. I am a civilian who had a chance to serve, only to follow my father's request that I try one year of college. If I messed up he told the Marine recruiter he would personally bring me down there.

Well I did not mess up in college and therefore never joined the Marines. I have plenty of friends who have served and an Uncle in the Air Force who I never got to know as he was killed just prior to being deployed to Vietnam.

i therefore have a great sense of admiration, pride and awe in the sacrifices you and all the men and women (along with their families) have made for our country.

Again - thank you for this story and God Bless all those who watch over us at home and in far away places!!!

GO BUCKEYES!!!!!

KMP10 - I respectfully disagree.  I struck a girl once - when I was 9 years old. Her Marine Drill Sargent of a father took me aside and left me with one simple rule - Unless the girl and or woman is carrying a weapon you never raise your hand to a female.  Even then there may be a way out of the situation without hitting the woman. A football player who most undoubtedly is much bigger and stronger has the means to restrain a female in lieu of physical striking her.

I have been hit by a woman in the past, worse than either football player may been hit and was able to restrain the woman without her hurting me or herself any further.  She even bit me hard enough to draw blood and caused severe damage to my vehicle.  I did not punch her back in a "false claim of self-defense" and that was what kept me from being arrested when the police did arrive.

Well, some people may say I got beat up by a woman.  I'll take the verbal abuse by other so called men, a bruise or minor bite mark over being cuffed and dragged into jail. 

This attitude of fist for fist regardless of the persons sex is an excuse used by too many people in today's society.

What  great call - I was at that game and the Shoe was rocking - back when the student section was in the north stands. Could not hear the person next to you and that was during and between plays as well as TV time outs!!!!! There was no need to pump in music or have a PA announcer to fire us up!!!!
