I only watch that network for OSU games. Literally the only time that channel is on my TV for more than a second.

I love how here you say "we" as though you are an OSU fan. You certainly are a dedicated troll.

(although they were somewhat shallow as Tress was an assistant for only a short time)

But he had a long history of rigging raffles at Ohio State.

I was having this conversation yesterday with my girlfriend. She read something on Yahoo about "Utah will beat Michigan" and she says "Is that really possible?". Thinking about it for a minute I said that it's very possible, and if it happens Hoke AND Brandon will likely be out of a job by the end of the year if not sooner.

If you are looking for an Indian lunch buffet, AAB India on Sawmill is excellent.

My family is from Cambridge so I know all about Wally's Pizza. Good stuff. Speaking of Cambridge, Kennedy's Bakery (The one downtown on Wheeling Ave.) is like heaven. My cousin grew up there and he makes a couple of trips a year from Louisville Ky to get some Wally's and Kennedy's. The cinnamon crispys and pecan crispys, cream horns, cookies and cakes are amazing. I drive from Columbus to Cambridge twice a year just to get birthday cakes for my mom and myself and pick up all kinds of goodies.

Another place that's on my list of places outside of Columbus is the G&R Tavern in Waldo. The "World Famous" fried bologna sandwich. It's great.

I'm not sure it THE best but it's pretty damn good. Their other food is pretty tasty too.

O'Reilly's food is terrific. I love the "old beer joint" feel of that place. Los Guachos BOGO Al Pastor tacos on Monday's is like crack.

Gerry Dinardo is an idiot and he spells his first name wrong. Last year, ALL YEAR, he said Ohio State didn't have a downhill running attack. Let that sink in for a minute, and then think about El Guapo.

“My big brother Curtis Grant — I talked to him right before I went out there. He really has trust in me, and when he’s been helping me for the last eight months that I’ve been here — nine months, whatever it is,” he said.

“Just knowing that I’ve got support from my big brother and the guy who’s been starting here — just going in there and him telling me that he’s got confidence in me that I can do it really gave me confidence.”

Added McMillan: “It’s no tension between me and Curtis. Me and Curt have the utmost love for each other, ever since I got here. People were expecting us to be going at it and what not but it’s the utmost love for Curtis. Everything’s that he’s done for me is a truly blessing — I couldn’t ask for a better big brother here at Ohio State.”

If anyone still wonders why Grant is a captain, well.....

I've had the feeling he's been hanging around here some too.

True. The main legacy of that defense that is used today is what I mentioned, the center and the guards are covered by a d lineman. That is usually referred to as a "bear front". FYI, I believe this was one hallmark of the Buckeye defense during the Fred Pagac era as DC (1996-1999).
Comment 13 Sep 2014
It's not exactly the same but it is a descendent of the 85 Bear D. VT put the nose tackle right over the center and 2 other linemen over the guards. Structurally the result is similar, it clogs the interior. The front is called the "bear front" because of the similarity of that aspect.

Fair enough. I just think that people who are only banging on the playcalling or in game coaching are missing somethings. This was truly a team loss. The playcalling could have been better, Barrett could have hit those hot routes, the line could have blocked better, the WR's could have caught more balls that hit them in the hands, the field goal kicker, the defense on 3rd and long, on and on.
