Done. Only one in Pensacola, FL so far. I know there are lots of other Buckeyes here though.

No Internet? Sounds like you made my service possible. :)

We have something similar at UWF called ArgoNet. It's been pretty good and fairly intuitive. It definitely makes the classes easier to follow. One thing that has annoyed me about online courses has been the final exams. Many of my "fully online" courses require me to come on campus to take my finals, or jump through hoops to figure something out for a proctor. Any problems like that in the courses you've taken online so far?

I live in Florida now, and absolutely refuse to root for a conference. That's the SEC way. I don't care how Illinois is doing against South Dakota State Community College. Ohio State football has been fun to watch for the better part of my life and the rest can keep losing for all I care. 

Comment 17 Jul 2015

Yep. The Florida State fans are terrible too. They beat Auburn, so they started claiming all of those MNC's too for some reason. Beating Oregon after they stomped the Seminoles out ended that too.

I've never hidden my Buckeye pride, and hearing "Roll Tide" and SEC chants was beyond obnoxious. The only thing I get around here now are stares and the occasional "O-H!" or "Go Bucks!". It's like living in a different world.

Best win: National Championships and beating Michigan are all at the top, but other than those beating Alabama was amazing. I live in Florida, just across the border from Alabama and I've been hearing the SEC crap for years. That game alone shut them all up. 

Worst loss: The MNC loss to LSU was worse for me than Florida. I was in Iraq for both, but I really felt like we should have won against LSU. Beanie did great in that game and a better game plan shuts the SEC machine down before it even starts.

Ohio State put 28 in a row on them before Bama responded. They recovered, but it wasn't enough, especially after an 85 yard TD run. I don't think Bama is broken, but they were finally exposed on a national stage. 

Comment 28 Mar 2015

Going undefeated with a huge win over TTUN, and closing it out with blowouts over LSU and Florida after it's decided two SEC teams "deserve to be in".

Urban will either retire here, or rebuild Notre Dame. I think he will want to stay at Ohio State, but his competitiveness might see him want to resurrect the Irish program. 

Comment 03 Feb 2015

Still love it. When I'm having a bad day, sometimes I go back to the game thread at SecRant and read through that. The comments when Bama went up 21-6 are my favorite. 

Comment 23 Jan 2015

Haha, I said the same thing. I jumped from sitting in my chair, over the coffee table and two dogs, and almost punched a hole through my TV on that play. My wife was throwing around words like problems and therapy, but all I remember is excitement. 

Comment 21 Jan 2015
This is definitely blasphemy where I'm living, and maybe even back in Ohio to an extent, but I don't think those Bama teams had the athletic talent that Urban Meyer has stockpiled here. Similar fundamentally, maybe, but not similar capabilities.
Comment 18 Jan 2015

I live 5 minutes from Alabama, and go there almost every weekend. I haven't left the house in anything but Buckeye gear since the Sugar Bowl. It's even better now that they can't tell me how Oregon is going to beat our asses. 

Comment 13 Jan 2015

Oregon had used a timeout, and had two left. They could have let the clock run out and didn't. They were also throwing the ball downfield on their final drive after it was clearly over. The game isn't 58 minutes long. There was nothing wrong with what either team did last night, and I'm sick of hearing how terrible of a thing it was to do to those poor Oregon players that have been running up the score for years.

Comment 10 Jan 2015

There is a limitation to what they can give them. These were gifts to the players for making it to the CFP championship game. They deserve these, and good on them. Oregon players received a pair as well. 

Comment 10 Jan 2015

This is great to hear, along with his selection to the HoF. Living where I live, the same tired nonsense I hear revolves around Coach Tressel "cheating" with performance enhancing tattoos, or Coach Meyer "faking heart problems" to get away from Saban.
