Comment 24 May 2013

I really resent a lot of the comments made in here. I feel I can offer perhaps a unique insight on this subject. I am a recent graduate of Ohio State (BA Economics) and have been a buckeye football fan for life. Over the past two years, I was living in the unit next to Rays in an apartment complex. 

He has had a troubled past that were all aware of, but he is a decent guy. In person, he is very kind and cordial, and believe it or not, kept mostly to himself. He is undoubtedly confused, and has made some poor decisions (even recently), but I don't think he is deserving of the hatred or mockery thrown his way. I've never subscribed to the idea of an "ex buckeye". He didn't perform up to standard on saturdays? Fine. Did any of you contribute on e field? I doubt it. He made some (really) bad decisions as a young man. Big deal.

In my book, once a buckeye, always a buckeye. He made mistakes. He knows it. And believe me when i say his life is far from glamorous (i was right there with him), but he is a kind and misguided soul. Get behind a fellow buckeye and root for him, rather than ostracize him. 

Just my thoughts, i'm sure many of you disagree, but with the personal connection i had wth ray, it pisses me off to see such comments.

I appreciate the (dim) wit, and i hate mark may as much as the next guy, but this is getting really childish. Kind of embarrassing to be honest.

Great poster! My only minor critique is that I had to take a few seconds for each teams logo to figure out who they were. That's probably what you were going for. Sorry to sound naggy. It's buriful.

I don't have a problem rooting for Michigan. We beat them. They know it, we know it. So in my view, I have every incentive to root for Michigan. It reflects well upon us if they win, and makes us look like a stronger team.

But if it's just another SEC blowout of the B10, then our reputation and credibility takes a hit. Hate it, but it's true.

The tradtion of the B10 shitting the bed is due to continue this year. I'm looking at this lineup, and I really think this could be the year we get completely shut out. I can't imagine we're going to be favored in any of these. I hope I'm wrong, I really do.

I wonder how many more years of bowl beatings the B10 can take before the discussion about whether we deserve automatic bids starts coming into play. I can see a 4 team playoff without the B10 involved, I really can. That scares me.

Haha, I just saw that Terry Bowden poster in front of a urinal this weekend while I was in Akron with the in-laws. Good for them.

Glad that Philly pulled off a 3.9 this quarter. I had a class with him once and he showed up about 1/3 of the time, and when he did, he never even carried a backpack or paid any attention. Great guy and all, but I was actually put off by it because I typically am one to defend student athletes when people play the "they are treated unfairly" card.

lol'd @ the captions

Great skully. I'm with you about the playoff discussions becoming annoying. When the topic first got brought to light, I couldn't have been more thrilled, but at this point, I'm sick of reading about it. It's no different than politics. New and exciting ideas being tossed out, but after months of deliberation, you get the same watered down garbage product that you're used to, and nobody is happy. 

Hopefully I'll be wrong about this one, but neverthless, yawn. 

Comment 23 May 2012

Hahaha. Now I have Tim Horton's all over my shirt. Still, anytime I read more than on Ayn Rand joke in a day, it's going to be a good day.

On behalf of everyone with the Atlas Shrugged audiobook on their Ipod (all 4 of us), I would like to thank you for your obscure (and disappointingly accurate) reference. Though, my copy is not read by Lou Holtz. Can you imagine how many rolls of Bounty it would take to wipe off the Lou-Holtz-Slobber off of the recording equipment? Hardly seems worth it to me...

Great Skully. I guess I should be productive now.

Amazing, early enough to enjoy with my morning coffeee. You guys have been doing an awesome job getting these up early lately, and as a result, reading 11w has become engrained into my morning routine (RIP, productivity). So, thank you for that. 

I love that the Urbz has been reaching out to the student body so much. As a student, it makes me feel so much more connected to the football team, and I feel having the transparency to the program can be nothing but positive. With as big as the athletic programs are here, it can be easy to feel like an outsider (from a student's perspective). The things Urban has done since getting here has really done a lot in terms of removing some of that perceived red tape.

I didn't make it to the Q&A, but I'm excited to hear about it from those who did.
