Member since 11 November 2006 | Blog

In the 11W game since November 2006, Chris has seen the site grow from the longer than necessary breast feeding years into the chill bro that you experience today. A lifelong Columbus resident, his love for Ohio State was instilled at an early age by a Pop that spoke of Ohio State football and basketball with a professor's insight creating a passion now channeled through our corner of the Buckeye blogosphere. Taking advantage of not knowingly having children, Chris spends too much time at the golf course, minor league baseball games and hitting concerts in between spending summers watching the New York Yankees.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: It's a tie. I'm a diehard Buckeye and Yankee fan so...
    1. Seeing Ohio State beat Miami for the one and only national title of my lifetime
    1A. Seeing the Yankees win the '96 series. It wasn't the first of my lifetime but the first since I began religiously following them in 1983 when Mattingly was called up for good from Columbus.

I think I used the word "legit" in there somewhere to talk about the gap between titles. 1970 team lost by 10 in the Rose Bowl and Nebraska ended up the AP #1 so I think it's fair to say the '70 claimed national title is dubious at best. At same time, I like saying we have 8 national titles so I'm admittedly wishy-washy about it.

Sad to hear about his death. I've got at least four of his albums on vinyl plus the Woodstock stuff. Mad Dogs & Englishmen is far and away my favorite. I'll probably give that a spin tonight. Dude sang with serious soul and passion. RIP.

The short answer is that Pass Breakups occur when a defender tips a pass to prevent the receiver from making a catch or else hitting the receiver at the same time the football arrives, thus "breaking up" the catch. (Defensive linemen can also get credit for PBRU when they bat down a pass at the line.) 

Passes Defensed is a player's combo of Interceptions and Pass Breakups.
