I'm originally from Columbus, but now reside in NC. I am a youth and worship minister at a church in High Point. Outside of the Buckeyes, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors (skiing, hiking, camping, kayaking), riding roller coasters, playing frisbee golf, listening to/playing music, and watching movies and TV (LotR, 24, Psych).

Never got into wrestling until I was in middle school in the late 90s, so this is the first time I have ever seen this. Holy crap! I was glued to my computer the whole time, haha. Awesome stuff, and some great stories from that bit about Macho, Jake, and Elizabeth.

Yeah, came to 11W because the dispatch changed their online access, and I'm so glad they did. this is the best site out there, and they proved that this weekend!

Psych is the perfect blend of hilarity, drama, and the 80s. Shawn and Gus' banter is some of the funniest stuff I've ever heard before on TV.

I've never regretted the '03 game too much. To me it felt almost the football gods enacting their justice after the Reynolds choke on Sorgi. That's one of those games I would have been conflicted about, had we won.

But yes, the best part of this years B1GCG was most certainly that this Buckeye train was just getting started. Can't wait for the Bama recap!

Ohio State football was in such a different place in 2002. There were so many seasons of being *this* close, only to fall to ttun or another team we should have beat handedly. There was such an air of uncertainty that year, almost like it was too good to be true, and we were waiting for the bottom to fall out. As the wins kept piling up, the pressure kept building, until it finally exploded as Cie Grant threw Ken Dorsey down by the neck. While this year was an absolute blast, it felt like Bama was the real champiionship game. Zeke's run was this year's "Cie Grant" play (and probably my 2nd all-time favorite). But beyond that, we knew that we could get over the hump again. We expect it now. Big difference from 12 years ago.

There was just something special about that 2002-03 season. There was such a coming together of the entire state unlike anything I've seen in my 25 years living there (I'm in NC now, so I can't say for this year). Coming out of the Cooper years where we should have had numerous titles, and having been over 30 years since the last one, it was the culmination of an entire lifetime of being a fan for everyone under 35. This season has been exactly what you said: redemption. An emphatic statement that Ohio State has not gone anywhere and (hopefully) will not go anywhere for years to come!

Call me a terrible parent, but I ran upstairs and got my 16 month old son out of bed and brought him downstairs for the last 2 plays. These things aren't guaranteed - they were thinking the same thing in '68. Who knows if I'll ever have the opportunity to watch another clock hit 0:00 on another title with my kid? It was a fantastic moment that I wouldn't trade for anything. Thanks for an incredible season, Buckeyes!
