US Army career officer - Medical Service Corps. Been a long road since I enlisted back in the early 80's as a Private; had a nice government all expenses paid trip to Saudia Arabia in 90-91 and felt the need to return to the deserts of Iraq in 2004.

Overall can't complain, but the Army sure has changed in 30 years.

I'm just happy we field year in, year out, good to excellent major sports programs.  So what if we make the first round of the NCAA but lose this year, next year with a good recruiting class coming in (and there are good kids coming, with some size to boot), I bet we are a Sweet 16 caliber team.  Heck it was 12-13 years since the football program last won a national championship, so I dont expect the basketball program to go undefeated and make the final four or win the NCAA every year either.  Matta is a good coach, we are very competitive and I love being a Buckeye fan.  I choose to get enjoyment from my college sports, not depression.

Ditto - not enough jungle love on 11W - we always have to take crap from the proletariat here.  Nice to see AJ return home, thats the only Buckeye jersey I have!

Concur Oyster.  Retiring with 28 years service later this year.  My Household 6 has made it possible for me to serve.  I have five kids, one in school on a ROTC scholarship and 2 others saying they want to be Soldiers also.  Hopefully its the life, community and brotherhood they see in me and my comrades that will spur future generations to continue to vonunteer and sacrifice.

Thanks LsjSnail for this video - hit the nail on the head of political correctness.

What does this say about that program?  Wow.  As much as I dislike scUM, I'd never thought it would have sunk to this depth of mediocrity that elite level coaches would take a pass to coach there.  I'm certain there are some great head coaches of smaller schools that could step up but scUM is failing to its own elitism and won't consider any but the highest profile names. They can't make the same Hoke type mistake back to back.
