What I should have said was the announcer compared our talent level to the team with the nation's longest losing streak.

Comment 21 Sep 2014

Heck next they will compare the bucks to tsun. I guess that would be downright offensive and even more disrespectful.

well cincy didn't actually recruit Kiel, but I am sure they had talks before he transferred.

I wrote on another thread that blocking and tackling and not so much "skill" players is how you win  (sparty last year). This team can't wrap up and can't sustain blocks.

I met Verne back in 1980 in Texas. He was a pretty good sportscaster for the news. He was a big SMU fan then. 

I have a hard time with announcers insulting the Bucks and I hear that a lot on these broadcasts. According to most, we just arn't very good and that included the Urb's undefeated streak.

I guess we need to win the championship again (I like that), but when we won it last time, we were still not considered very good.

The trophy looks nice in Columbus though.

It wasn't about contact. It was about that the kid nailed Craig's kid and Craig was the moo moo wearing mother. Just because you were outstanding in a sport, it doesn't mean your kids are.

The complaint was Craig touched the man's son and then screamed at him cause he had a good block on the young Krenzel.

As a parent, I would have felt like a dad. As a fan I would wonder about our coach showing favoritism to his kid and not praising the other kid for a good block. Much difference between when one was a player and now a parent. 

I think folks are attacking the parent cause Krenzel was a Buckeye. Read what happened and then you might see things differently.

In this day and age, grabbing young kids is forbidden by the law, even in sports. Krenzel should teach his kid how to take a hit instead of trying to protect the kid in the middle of football.

Plus Ruth played in a dead ball era and the talent wasn't watered down by having double the teams.

Now simmer down youngsters. Thad is a darn good coach, but I don't think you remember one Fred Taylor. he won the National championship, finished second twice and mentored Bobby Knight. Bobby will tell you how great Fred was.

For one play, the greatest buckeye of all time was my former dentist Doug Adams. He leaped high on the goal line and stopped a leaping O.J. Simpson in the Rose Bowl and the good guys won the NC. Doug pushed him back.

It doesn't get any better
