  • SPORTS MOMENT: Wearing tear-away homemade #45 Archie Griffin t-shirts playing Nerf football in the back yard with my cousin before and at half-time of the 1974 OSU-um game when Mike Lantry (honorable Vietnam Vet - thank you for your service) missed a field goal giving OSU the 12-10 win after listening to my Dad and my Uncle bitch all 1st half after OSU got behind 0-10. Archie, Conelius 'Flam', Pete Johnson and Brian Baschnagel were my heroes... and that Cousineau guy...
    Watching my Dad and Uncle swear and stress and smoke a few puffs of a cigarette each in the basement while we told them to put it out while they were grinding over this 'sure' FG, drinking two beers inside the commercial break and then watch them leap out of their chairs when Lantry missed and hugging us and throwing us in the air... watching the fans storm the 'Shoe and Schembechler in disbelief over the call...
    Watching the 2002 OSU - um game with my dad and my son after his Youth Football All-Star Game and throwing him in the air when Will Allen intercepted John Navarre's pass in the end zone... the 2003 Fiesta Bowl with my Dad erasing the '76 Rose Bowl loss and pissing off my mom who said we were too old to get this upset about a football game...
    Taking my son, my Dad and I to the 'Shoe in 2006 for the OSU - um #1 vs. #2 game and spending $3,000 in one weekend on airfare, scalped tickets, and food and hotel rooms without the wife or my dad knowing... These events all rank just under the water line from the birth of my two children and graduating from West Point so that I could serve America in our U.S. Army ...

Agree.  These D-bags in the Federal Government break laws and rain hell on people daily.  Pryor paid his dues, was never convicted of anything, and the clowns associated with the $25,000 payouts at Oregon got nothing.  Lift the ban on Pryor and welcome him home.

Cleveland isn't tough blue collar.  It is a town with idle buildings, idle workers and idle vision.  Cleveland is has been wanna be blue collar. And yeah, my family is from Ohio, and I worked in Cleveland for a while.  Great people - Just not enough of those great people because they all left.   What QB do you propose would succeed for this bum team in this town well past it's twilight.  Manziel deserved better.  If the Browns don't believe in him and the fans want some clown at QB with no belief that he can win, then let them continue to be the Chicago Cubs of pro football.  The Clowns will never win - Hope Manziel performs well, does three years and goes to a team serious about winning.

Comment 13 May 2014

Manziel is the Anti-Romo.  The players Romo takes the field with would not follow him off the titanic into the last lifeboat.  He is not a leader.

Manziel has shown leadership abilities in the two short years he's been playing.  He will grow up, and grow into leading by presence and example.  He has "It.".  Romo is a tool.

Comment 13 May 2014

The last thing Manziel is, is a D-bag.  He's been great for college football and if he was a Buckeye we would be begging him to stay one more year or singing the praises of JFF to revive the Browns.  Manziel is a player and I am now a Browns fan.  Dude is A-OK.

I liked Pryor.

I liked Clarett.

It is tough to be 18/19/20 at tOSU and be the best there is in the game with the most anti-team media in all of the NCAA.  These guys bear the brunt of the media's hatred of OSU going back to Woody.  They didn't hate Reggie Bush.  They didn't say Jack Feces about Chip Stain Kelly and the $25,000 pay for play scam, ESPN let the Cam Newton deal go away.  Yet Pryor and Clarett are scorned.  Still.  They should not be.  Let it go.

Loved watching these guys play - they had to grow through it all and dig deep and forge within themselves some tough lessons and they are young men of character because of it.

Welcome them both back when they can come back and thank them for their time and what they gave us as fans, and forgive their decisions then over the passage of time.

Comment 22 Dec 2013

Reminds me of guys I went to West Point and served in our Army with.  Solid leader.  Tough.  Smart.  Driven.  Great family.  Great teammate.  Integrity.  Looking forward to his success and what he and his teammates can create for themselves and for their coaches as we watch them unfold in the coming three to four years.  Great kids - check that - emerging men and leaders - in this crew.

Comment 31 Aug 2013

We will be overtaken by Oregon, Stanford or GA/ Clemson winner and won't be back at #2 the rest of the year unless all of them have a loss because of this game.  Wisconsin will run over OSU, let alone Alabama.  Weak.

Comment 27 Aug 2013

Hey, RBuck.  Curious - why don't you like College Station?  College Station is actually a pretty cool place and it's an excellent school.  Great family tradition.  Good people.

Comment 10 Jul 2013

Who wants to start a league?  Who wants to play a game?  Who has a league I can join?

Comment 10 Jul 2013

I am 50.  I still play these games.  And I am in a league.  With other adults.  We have to take turns playing as Ohio State.

I think there is something wrong with me.

Comment 05 Mar 2013

First Team Defense: Noah Spence (LEO); Bennett (3 tech); Hale (1 Tech); Adolphus Washington (5 tech); David Perkins (Will); Grant (Mike); Powell (Star): Bradley Roby (boundary CB); Doran Grant (wide CB); C.J Barnett (SS); Christian Bryant (FS).

David Perkins (Will);?? Shouldn't this be Ryan Shazier, or is this because #10 was out with a minor injury?

In a really surprising twist, Manti's girlfriend was actually Charlie Weis.

Comment 16 Jan 2013

Stop!!! I am crying laughing at these posts!! This is the best ever.  Ever!

Comment 16 Jan 2013

Hahahahaha!! This is so hilarious!!

Comment 05 Jan 2013

Two thoughts.

The U was done after this game.  No one knew it then...  they've been gone since then.

scum was done after this game.  Yeah, they won the next year, but they were done after this and even now they are not back.

Thank you, Jim Tressel.  This is a gift that keeps on giving for the rest of my life.  I watch this game with my dad several times each year.

This article gives context that makes this game more amazing than it already is.
