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).

I remember when AJ Hawk came back for his senior year, one of the reasons he gave was that he wanted football to stay fun and not be a job for one more year. Also, you've reached the top in the NFL. While there is always the SB to win, you are now at the highset level. I would imagine that makes it kinda like defending a title in that it's a grind to stay at the top.

If we do make the playoffs, I want Bama. As far as I'm concerned, if you want to be the best, you have to beat the best, and they're the defending champs. If this team is as good as I hope it is in November, there won't be anyone that scares me.

Such an incredible run to end the season. I remember after we scored the first touchdown against Wisconsin, I texted my mom "All. Night. Long." I didn't realize exactly how right I would be. The Sugar Bowl was magical, especially having my family there to watch the game with us. Literally almost screamed myself unconscious on 85ytthots (I was seeing white by the time he hit the end zone). What a finish, watching Zeke just do whatever he wanted running against Oregon. Such an incredible and improbable year!

Live in NC now and that is so true. People are probably counting down the minutes until basketball practices start. Football is just here. There is no passion involved in it from the fans.

That USC game was like the Texas game all over again, except it was a freshman and not a heisman quarterback leading the final drive. I was visiting my future wife in NC the weekend of the Iowa game. I had to drive back to Columbus afterwards. I remember getting so mad at Tressel for going into conservative mode and letting them tie it up. Didn't end up getting home until almost 2 and had a 6am wakeup call... That Oregon game was Pryor's finest in the scarlet and gray. Good throws, great runs. Like someone said earlier, we failed to use the Rose Bowl as a springboard into 2010.

Yeah, my now-wife and I were watching it in the lobby of my dorm, and I think I turned it off halfway through the 4th. Walked her up to her dorm with my OSU lawn chair (don't know why I had that). I just remember her saying, "Don't throw it," as she walked up the stairs, so I waited for her to go in the door before I chucked that chair about 15 feet.

Also, yes, that loss to Texas summed up our defense in 2006-08. Close but never good enough. Always falling apart at the most inopportune times.

LOL indeed!

My almost 3 year old loves the Disney version of Tarzan. Recently introduced him to Remember the Titans. I wasn't sure if he would sit through it, but he loved it. Made me excited, because it's one of my favorites.
