Akron boy who's family moved to Vermont when I was in elementary school. Parents & Grandparents were wise enough to return me to "The Heart Of It All" every year for summer vacation. The Navy took me after high school, around the country & across the Pacific twice. After my hitch and a bit I called it good. Working now on the civilian side just West of Seattle. Been a Buckeye fan my whole life. All the Cleveland teams/sports have come & gone (Strike this, Players Union that...) August 2002 I dropped MLB and went full Buckeye. Holy Buckeye what timing!

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Cie Grant slinging Ken Dorsey to the ground on the final play. I turn to my dad and say "Get your shoes & coat. Lets go!". I drove through the start of a blizzard to make it to the pub just in time for "last call". We ordered 2 each to toast those Buckeyes!

    Close second: Joe Germaine to Dimitrious Stanley over & over, then Joe Germaine to David Boston to wipe that smile off Jake's face & keep my buddy Staz from hanging himself.

We had a Zenith that looked just like that while I was growing up!! Earliest I remember was 1978, but I think my folks got it in 1973/4 and it lasted until sometime after I joined the Navy in 1992!!

The first 2 years of my marriage I tried to juggle a new wife 2 daughters and football on the weekends. I'd already given up on Pro ball, and I made a deal with my wife, I'll go anywhere you want on Saturdays as long as I can watch the Buckeyes live. After a couple of years she realized I wasn't asking for much. I'll record and or pause any other game to take care of household stuff (breakfast for the now 3 daughters and her), and I have all Saturday for College ball!!

As do I. My wife hates it. First time I wore it she asked "Who's Dave?" I just laughed.

I've been lurking the halls here since '08, been a member since 2010. I can't tell you all how many thousands of hours I've spent reading all the stories, Buckshots, posts & forum topics since then. I'm not big on commenting, but I wanted to say thank you to you all!! That goes to Staff & Commentariat alike! The content & comments here are hands down "Best on the web!".

Hey Jason, couple of requests, how about a new "mix tape" for us old guys & could you launch the new site on a Saturday so we get one more "Bucksfan Icon" Friday forum bump?

I'll back you on this Salty, while they never looked like they had the confidence to look back early enough to make a play on the ball, I did see improvement on how they made a last min look to at least defend the play.

If he could barely throw the ball, what the hell was he doing in the game? More to the point why all the deep routes when we knew a blitz was coming? All kinds of out routes to the tight ends that could have been called on to save Miller some of the hits he took tonight.

I voted yes, but I'm not one of those guys. While on paper The Game should have been a bloodbath, with that one I know better. I just believe that Hyde's motor gets the better of a tired Shartan D in the 4th.

Lot of good points here, but I'm going with the over. I believe 3 quarters of a spread attack and balanced O using our TEs to gas MSUs linebackers will open some big running lanes for Carlos. The Buckeyes eat up the 4th with Hyde who busts a couple 20+ yarders to put him over the top.

Soooo Cool.

I'm getting the same FB posts, some from friends who don't even watch football! I tell them all "That's why they're THE best damn band in the land!" and send them off with links to other halftime shows.
