Yep, my first and only Jersey. I wore it every weekend for about a decade. During Pryors run at OSU many would tell me "nice Pryor jersey" I would correct them and let them know it was a "Mike Doss jersey." A few years back I was lucky enough to get a signature on it from Doss and it has since been retired from my game day uniform.

Comment 24 Jun 2015

I don't disagree with you and I am not using that phrase to excuse Pryor. I'm using it to mean 20 yr olds do dumb things. I would expect a 20 yr old to make mistakes, have error in judgements and  break rules to an extent. However, I wouldn't expect a 50+ yr old seasoned coach to knowingly break a rule. Especially a Coach who sold books titled "The Winners Manual for the Game of Life." I would expect more out of that person to not break rules then a 20 yr old college student.

Well stated. Tressel was a grown man, knowingly breaking a rule, intent doesn't matter. TP was a 20 yr old doing 20 yr old things. It kills me that so many Buckeye fans give Tressel a pass but kill the other Tat-5. The fact Tressel will be in the HOF and TP needs to be checked to see if he is allowed to go to his JOB in Ohio Stadium is simply disgusting!

If I was ever invited to a Bro-dal Shower, know I will not only not be attending but you can count me out of the wedding and every other activity or function that has to do with your "big day". Don't put that on me!

Comment 20 Jun 2015

Agreed. Also, how many of Tressels were in the fourth quarter when he had to go for it vs Meyer going for it in the first second quarter? When the decision was made to go did OSU have the lead or trailing? These are questions that I think need to be added to the equation. My guess is very rarely did Tressel go for it with the lead and very rarely the first three quarters. Which I think would be direct contrast to Meyer I would think. If my thoughts are indeed accurate that makes Meyer much more aggressive even if the numbers by themselves are close to equal.

Exactly! If you guys are perfect for each other then she wouldn't even look at a fall wedding. We were married in the Spring and there was no question why we both wanted to get married in early May.

This is funny.  I believe JPBuck to be a Michigan fan/troll and I have tried to figure out what J P Buck meant. You know it has to be a subtle pro Michigan and a subtle anti- OSU handle.

I'll add- "It was a ball boy from the previous Rich Rod regime that Hoke was forced to keep on staff due to a booster. Hoke and Dave's hand were tied on the matter. The ball boy is actually a son of a prominent booster, whom I've met through my dinners with the Governor. Its a tough situation but I wouldn't be surprised to see this kid off the side lines next season. Title IX"

I was hoping the same. This is my access Hollywood....

Comment 19 Jun 2015

The thing is its so much more than an injury anymore. Its a head game now. When the wheels start coming off like they did yesterday you can see it in his face. He starts to think about not embarrassing himself, I'm going to have to answer questions about this round, etc.. He's not focused on the game but truly doesn't have confidence in any swing. He begins to start making little excuses like letting go of the club as if the lie was so treacherous that was the only thing he could do.In the sand trap where he just completely scuffs it because his club hits some lanky fescue grass in the back swing. He starts looking at the fescue grass in disgust. He whimped out on a 3 ft putt and completely misses it but starts patting down a ball mark that was in his line after. He is a mental train wreck at this point and much of it is do to off the course issues. I think injury is 5% of the problem. You have guys like Fred Couples who has dealt with major back injuries throughout his career and he was very competitive well into his 40's. Tiger needs to get his life figured out outside of golf and all of a sudden he will find his swing again.

Great post, Joe! Just say you hate Curry because "he is beating us" not try to nitpick/make up things to try to justify the hate. You hate him cause he is winning right now and there is nothing wrong with that. I agree with your MVP talk as well. Not sure why who wins the MVP means anything anyhow. It doesn't diminish LBJ and what he has been doing throughout these playoffs.

Comment 15 Jun 2015

I agree with the original post. Seriously, what makes the difference if he won the MVP or not? Everyone gets it, LBJ is better overall player then Curry but these arent reasons to hate on the guy. He didn't vote himself MVP. He is a flat out shooter that has stuck daggers in the back of many opponents throughout the season. I personally think he is fun to watch. He is doing nothing more after making baskets then any other player this day an age is doing. It feels like Cavs fans are nitpicking because the series is starting to slip away. There is nothing wrong with Curry. You can hate him because he is beating your team right now but at least respect him for his ability. I don't think he has done anything to be called the names he has been called.

^^ this times 25 bazillion trillion gazillion dillion and 1!!!  I so wish we had access to threads 4 yrs ago. They would be hilarious to follow up and see who has been jumping back and forth.

Comment 12 Jun 2015

I dislike the Oh-IO chant as well

Vowed never to watch another Tressel coached team after he put on the brakes in the 2nd half of the Arkansas game. (Glad that worked out for me) I also am not a very big fan of his and think its questionable at best he is in the HOF while guys like TP cant even be associated with the university. The tat 5 are kids they make mistakes, he knowingly lied.

Damn it if Michigan doesn't have the best fight song.

I hate when OSU fans think its cool or clever to not fully type out Michigan or use the term scUM, Meatchicaken, skunkweasals, etc..

I feel better!
