I'm from California yet my number one  passion (aside from my family) is...

  Ohio State Buckeye Football -- A die hard fan since my first game against UCLA in 1979 at the LA Coliseum.  UCLA and those spoiled idiots who worship a white mule and dudes in helmets and gowns shared the Coliseum back then... God bless Fall Saturdays and God Bless The Ohio State University

2.  LA Angels of Anaheim Baseball -- Don't blame me; I didn't name them.  Besides, we still have JB Shuck on our 40 man roster.  Solid dude and a joy to watch play the game. 

3.  Can't think of anything but I'm really trying to catch the golf bug....

You are correct, The Game in 2005.  Bobby was also with John Simon when it was determined he couldn't play in his last game due to injury. Apparently provided a lot of emotional and moral support for John and the entire team for The Game in 2012.  A class act and true Buckeye...

hyperbole on the part of A. nonymous and this clearly biased, future Pulitzer prize winner....

Comment 14 Jun 2014

Jeez, this article got the butterflies going in my stomach.  It's only June.  I'm not supposed to feel this way until right before kickoff...!!

I always appreciate when quantum physics (or whatever the heck that is) can be introduced into a discussion related to college football recruiting.  I say bravo...!!

I screamed at the TV in incredulous disbelief as he stepped up in the pocket and went for it all on 4th down...  What was he thinking??!!  He wasn't.  He was just oozing confidence and knew what it took to win...  I would take Craig Krenzel as my starting QB any day.... He is one...Holy Buckeye....!!

Sad and untimely but that's life and family comes first.  Best wishes to the entire Mitchell family...

Living in Southern California, I had an opportunity to meet Coach Carroll back in 2005 (it was the night before the '05 rendition of THE GAME). I was introduced to the coach as "our resident Ohio State fan."  When he heard this, his eyes lit up and he excitedly and fondly started telling me of being hired by Earl Bruce as an assistant. It was obvious he cherished his time in Columbus, though it was a brief tenure. Though I despise usc, I still have a pic of Coach Carroll and me on my refrigerator. Though my exposure to him was limited, he was very gracious and approachable. Just a good guy...

Agreed... I have no facts to support this but it seems like he comes from a solid family background that values education and faith, first and foremost.  I know the NFL window is small, but you can never get that college experience back once you leave it...Even if you do come back to finish your degree.  It's just never the same.  Whatever he chooses, he has represented TOSU well and, FWIW, he has my undivided support...

The more I think about this, the more I feel my blood boil.  We've ridden El Guapo's back all year to within minutes of the promised land and, then, when we need him the most, we cast him off like flotsam.  I can't fathom this.  It's like UFM took a page out of the John Cooper bestseller, "How Not to Lose to Michigan." 

Two yards, two lousy yards!!  Hell, El Guapo falls forward for two frickin' yards...  I hope the coaching staff has nightmares about this gaffe and makes sure this type of play calling NEVER happens again...

Comment 13 Dec 2013

This game may have been the proverbial perfect storm.  MSU has been improving all year where we may have plateaued right around the Indiana game.  Braxton, for whatever reason, struggled the last couple weeks in the passing game and, like it or not, makes our offensive explosive, yet one-dimensional. 

Our defense, well...I don't know where to start.  I chalk it up to bad coaching, scheming and, unfortunately, I think a change needs to be made in that regard.  MSU had solid offensive players and a quarterback who can make passes.  The Buckeye defense either couldn't, or decided not to, learn from the michigan fiasco and still allowed toO many screen plays for big yards and several long passes that any other defender in the country could either have knocked down or intercepted.  And let's not forget the mental errors that cost us the opening 3 points.  If we stop them on that drive, where's the momentum?  I submit it would have been all Buckeye and that 17 point deficit would have never been an issue.

Hey, we're all humans, including the coaches.  I think that between player personnel and coaching staff, the combination of the streak and all the talk about should they or should they not be playing on January 6 had them hinked up while MSU was able to play a more loose brand of let it all hang out football.

Lessons will be learned from this game (I hope).  Maybe this will be the actual springboard needed to catapult this team into an elite football team...

I want to change my vote. I quickly picked Tom Herman but, really, UFM is the head coach and, God bless him, he gets my secondary vote tonight. He needs to overrule from time to time. This won't sit well with him. We'll be back...

Comment 30 Nov 2013

He is merely telling the _ichigan proxy how he feels about that cesspool of a state.  I found it a quite poetic exit...Bravo, Marcus Hall...!!

Exactly...

Comment 25 Nov 2013

Such a fun post to read. This was awesome and you're spot on. GO BUCKS!!!

Comment 24 Nov 2013

Born, raised, and have lived 35 of my 40 years in Southern California...surrounded by idiot Trojan fans. I went to my 1st Ohio State game back in '79 against UCLA. My mom is an Ohio State graduate and I grew up living and dying with the scarlet and gray. When it came time for college, TOSU was, unfortunately, not a realistic option due to out of state tuition. Regardless of my lack of diploma from TOSU, I am a Buckeye, through and through.  I will always wonder "what if I had been able to attend OSU," but it doesn't change the fact that I bleed scarlet and gray, through good and bad, til the day I die. Buckeye Nation is alive and well. GO BUCKS!!!

Comment 19 Nov 2013

You were right last time and I agreed with you.  It's semantics.  Nothing more.  Maybe I need to change my wording...One of the TWO teams, the TWO that are ahead of us, need to lose...I putting eggs in BOTH baskets.  Not one or the other....BOTH... That's all...
