The sponsor is Amway? Seriously, Amway?
I think that all you had to do is watch the teams play. You consistently ask yourself, "why with all this talent and coaching, at a school like tOSU, do we seem to just bumble along?" Hey, it's leadership. Someone has to step up.
Urban is very popular. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude.
What's the Pizza guy have to say?
I may have missed it but, what does he get (other than Dontre's job) if he wins? Just bragging rights? Should get to watch a game on the sideline or something. This is awesome and great for the students.
NFL, please hire this man!
Maybe Hoke should put on a headset?
Meh...even a blind squirrel occasionally beats a nut.
B1G Championshp Nope
NCAA Champtionship Nope
Passive is have slidden...
I think what made it so real with Amedeo was it was so hard to figure why you liked him, you just did. I looked for him when they put him in and loved it when he had a great game. I wouldn't care if they were paying him $300,000,000.00. I wish all the best for him.
I'm still trying to figure the Arron Craft as the most hated player in basketball at the HP. Where the hell did this come from other than in the warped mentality of Chris Greenberg? Have I been missing something?
The guy is intelligent, a good student. He plays so hard that it seems he spends half his time on the floor in and out of bounds. He probably has raspberries on his elbows and knees that will take until next season to go away. No criminal accusations, no honeys from drunken parties accusing him of rape. What is up?
Hit or miss, he was a joy to watch play. If the other players had 1/10 of his energy, we would be going to the sweet 16. If he goes the NBA way, I am sure he will give his all to whoever drafts him.
As a human being, much like the oft assailed Wayne Woodrow Hayes, the above referenced coaches cannot carry water for Jim Tressel. Say what you like about the Xs and Os.
As usual, great unbiased write up M Man!
Poorly worded survey...not who will but who I would like...RDS, yes, I think he will shine. But ya gotta love El Guapo. Because.
mmmmmm...Mystery Girl...Mystery drink....
As you gravitate to Caddyshack, don't forget Groundhog Day. A totally innovative story that has been the focus of many religious groups discussing its themes of redemption, rebirth, spiritual transcendence...etc. This is my go to movie every Februray 2.
Product of an Ohio State edjumacation..

Damn, you beat me to it...perfect metaphor...
I am late to the fray but wanted to add my two cents worth which, with inflation, could be four cents now. First, let me say right off that I make this site part of my daily, conscientiously applied program of oral hygiene and regular Buckeye news. I get Buckeye news here first and the quality of writing puts national sports sources to shame (I'm talking to you ESPN, SI). I also understand that I can't look this gift horse in the mouth (hell it's free), although I have thrown some shekels their way in the past.
What concerns me is the "post literate" appearance and presentation that seems to be creeping into websites and even the national news. For example, take a look at MSNBC.com (here http://www.nbcnews.com/ ). Look familiar? It is a veritable matrix of photos rather than written text. Scroll down one page, you only pass 5 - 7 stories (where before most of the day's news was on one page). Plus, do I need some helpful picture to introduce a story? 11W at least takes the time to select an image that is very relevant to the topic of the story. MSNBC has a story on how Bison is becoming more of a mainstream meat, with a picture of a Bison or two. Gee, thanks, I didn't want to confuse them with a chicken. Anyone out there not know what a Bison looks like? Really? Back to 5th grade with you.
I also see national news stories using movies to explain fairly uncomplicated events. A recent story about Bin Laden/ Al Qaeda used clips and comparisons from Zero Dark Thirty. I guess this was to make the subject of bad guy extraction by helicopter what, more simple? I think it is all part of a dumbing down of the media. Not that we are seeing 11W using clips from Rudy to support their stories but, the gifs are really helping to slow downloads (although many are highly entertaining).
I don't think people on this site are dumb. In fact, I think college football tends to attract fairly intelligent people who either aspire to college, have gone to college, or graduated (no stats, just spitballing here). We can handle more text and less 4 x 4 pictures of Braxton Miller (although I would like a 8 x 10 of the Zack Boren/Devin Gardner tackle).
So, with some final sucking up; keep up the great work, incredible writing, and font of all Buckeye news. I appreciate and admire your efforts. Just back off on the pictures, keep the gifs short and relevant.
I have to say that I have never enjoyed watching someone run as much as Brax. I am normally a defense fan but, everytime I see him totally fake someone out of their socks, it warms my cold Buckeye heart. Brax is one that I have no problem with making big $$ at the next level.
Yea...the term "minor surgery" is like "a little bit pregnant".
