Being born and raised in Columbus I was brought to love and adore the Buckeyes. In 1975 I asked my mother if I could have an afro just like Archie Griffin. She looked at my bright copper colored straight hair and said..."Yes, yes you can". No matter how hard I tried to grow that afro, I still looked like Opie. Now that I am older, my hair may be brown, but my love for scarlet still remains. GO BUCKS!

Hell, I have over 2000 by never starting a thread, and only commenting in a positive respectful manner.   I suggest you earn your stickers.

In 2006 I ran in to a man wearing Curt Coleman's number 4 jersey at Fricker's in Centerville.   Knowing Coleman was a Freshman, I was really sort of shocked to see someone already have that jersey.   I said to the man, wow, that is the first Kurt Coleman jersey I have seen, he is just a Freshman.   The gentleman looked at me with huge eyes and said. "That's my son!, you know who Kurt Coleman is?"  I told him I followed recruiting a bit too much and I was looking forward to watching his boy play.    Was a really great day, and he was a really nice guy.    He made his dad proud 10000 times over.  Kurt has been one of my favorite buckeyes since that day.

Go Bucks!

He tackles as well as Antoine Winfield and runs like Shazier.   He will be a very good NFL player.

Hell the Defense scored OSU's only two touchdowns if my memory serves correctly.  I would say that they played stellar defense that game considering they were on the field for 50 minutes.

After losing 5 straight, you really can't think this team would finally be good.  They are mediocre as heck right now but you can see where they are slowly improving.   They will figure it out.  It may be next year, but they will figure it out.

I just hope everyone gets drafted, I hate to see someone who didn't finish their degree say...ooops, I messed up.

Agreed.   Its not like half of us don't type on a screen that is 3 inches wide.   The grammar police are the lowest brow of all trolls.  Essentially they are saying since they have zero ability to argue a point...lets go with.   "You can't spell"

I think he was a Tressel recruit that was just kind of pissed about the lack of Florida offer.   Then when UFM came to OSU, he was gone.   But a lot of players weren't overly happy with how hard the new staff was shaking the tree.   But just like Noah Spence, I still want former Buckeyes to succeed, no matter how long they were in Columbus.
