This sight is fantastic in every aspect. Ramzy's articles are well written and thought provoking. I enjoy the insights from all the different age groups represented in the 11W community.

I love how this community welcomes, for the most part, divergent view points from others without overtly castigating that individual. I appreciate the fact that the community polices itself and those with "off color or offensive" views are dealt with judiciously.

I would also like to give a tip of the cap and a big THANK YOU to the Mods who keep an eye on this sight and provide thoughtful comment.

I will amend your statements to every one of the 10 games we lost to that team during the Cooper era. So much talent - wasted when it came to THE GAME.

i hated the 90's when it came to THE GAME!! You just knew from the look on Coops face he was the spokesman for Depends!!!'

I will be in London coming up in either November or February (hopefully Febrhary although it will be miserable weather - but at least I will not be in danger of missing a game) on business. Always wear some sort of Buckeye gear while across the pond.

It is the one game at a time mentality which will get the Buckeyes through the season. That is why I will not be making any statements regarding upcoming opponents until the week of that opponent match up. VT is the only future game that should be spoken and/or written about (IMO).

No one should be taking VT lightly!!! I believe this game will be tougher than it appears. Of course the person writing this has been following OSU football for approximately 46 years and therefore has seen many games where the Buckeyes were clearly the better team make games closer than they need be.

ONE GAME AT  A TIME!!!! BEAT VT!!!!!

It is my understanding he suffered from Diabetes which has taken a toll on him. I remember seeing his in his next fight where a phantom right hook from, I think Holyfield, took him to the mat. Replays showed nothing but air between the fist and his chin.  Also, I believe the meteoric fame played  bit into his situation as well.

Bassdropper - sometimes even the best of us can get caught up with "non-perosnalzation" of other for the most part anonymous posters. It is a part and parcel of who we have become as a society.

Maybe it is my age, but I have to say I am glad I don't communicate solely through written words sent to people I do not know in person.

I truly enjoy reading the back and forth between the 11W contributors, writers and members. The one thing I always take into consideration is the "person" I am responding to is just that a real person. There are too many of you in this site who have shared life experiences with us to which I have felt and connected with. 

I may never meet a single one of you; but I can say that this community means a great deal to me.

Bassdropper - always remember if you begin to lose identity with those you respond to then why are we even communicating with one another.

Good luck and come back - I look forward to the next time you drop a line.

I met Coach Bruce on the First Buckeye Cruise for Cancer in 2008 - Showed him a throwback helmet from 1964 and he immediately launched into a story about how Woody was already, 51 years ago, thinking on how to reduce concussions.  H said Woody had the equipment guys put a large piece of foam inside the center piece of the helmet. However, the coaches and player complained the opposing players cold not feel t hits when contact was made  Soon afterwards, the foam piece was removed from the helmet. The stories and love he has for Buckeye football are unbelievable.

Get well soon Coach Bruce and prayers and thoughts to the entire Bruce family.

Good thought - Living down here is an adventure every day - Between the 18' plus long pythons, gators which nestle up to your front door and the elderly drivers - Life can be a trying experience on many levels!!!! 

You need to be part Indiana Jones, Bear Gryllis and Jack Hanna to survive!

Back at you with an UV for your response.  Could not agree more. I get a kick out of todays youth being able to communicate so easily digitally; but when it comes down to holding a conversation; it takes them a while to realize they can speak and actually verbalize what they would normally text, IM, DM or whatever... The other kicker is when they realize they actually enjoy speaking with another person. God bless them all -

I'll just mosey over to the recliner, pop a beer open and enjoy life as it comes while trying to decipher the latest slang.

DannyBeane - try being the 51 year old uncle with nieces, nephews and a few grand nieces. 

Talk about not being I touch with today's slang. However, they still understand the curse words when they hear them. That language is universal!

Damn - Prayers and thoughts to the Farmer family. One can only hope that others choose to face their problems, large and small, with the dignity, grace and strength that Zach did.

Sorry about the comments being in all "bold" as if my comments were the end all of all comments - could not get the damn bold button to shut off.

Comment 04 Aug 2015

I love how these so called writers bloviate about past events as if they are precursors for the future, i.e. The article from Rolling Stone. 

Maybe JH will have some success against Urban, maybe not. But to suggest Urban and company should be worried is laughable at best. Based on statements from the coach himself - he worries about the things he can control - and deals with the things he cannot control as they come up.

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.
