  • SPORTS MOMENT: Chatting with Urban Meyer at the induction ceremony for Emmit Smith in Canton. I was there as a photog and was sitting by myself when Urban sat beside me. We chatted about kids, school his future. He asked more questions about my family and me than I would have ever expected.

She isn't saying not intense she is saying its not as mean, there is a respect ichigan and Ohio State have.  Intense as any game but not near as downright mean. That's the point she is making.  The meanest, no respect, damage others property in the Big Ten is the Purdue/Indiana rivalry.  They get physical, do damaging things to each others property, and downright hate the fact the other exists.  When you don't play for championships, they seem to make it up against each other.

This conversation was not what got him fired.  There will be more to come out, because if you lose your job calling out a leader behind close doors who obviously ignored a command, there are a lot of folks at OSU and everywhere else in trouble.  The truth better be more than what we have seen, because what I have seen is enough for a guy to lose his job.  This tape is a non-issue.

Vey nice but hearing the moderator ask.."When did you decide to choose Ohio as your school" was a bit disheartening. I think when Justin watches the replay he wishes he could have put the wipe in his place for the question.  Welcome Justin to Buckeye Nation!!

Herbstriet with Palmer and B Huard did the same thing.  Was bad enough on the field but these 3 had an agenda.

Hail to the Victors is a 4 note song that just might be easier to play than mary had a little lamb.  It was the 1st song I learned on my trumpet as a kid, thought it was very cool.

My guess his salary and bonus both will increase with every Nat'l title he wins.  If the AD can get an $18,000 bonus for a wrestling individual Nat'l title, I would bet Meyer's salary would get a huge increase, plus the bonus.

Best part of that hit, other than the hit itself is the Purdue Cheerleader and her expression of, Damn, you just got nailed as looked at her own player.  It was featured on one of the ESPN Jeers...classic look and monster hit.


Comment 05 Jun 2014

The only reason they got to play in that game was because of pressure put on by the Sugar Bowl and Delaney of the BigTen.  They pleaded and begged to the right people.  Saying the process had not played out so until it has, let em' play.  Which turned out to be another of Delaney's blunders in a career full of blunders.  How he still has this job is amazing and scary.

~~The rivalry is cyclical, not in an era with Urban Meyer.  If he coaches 10-15 years you saying that ichigan will win 7-10 games?  If it is cyclical its going to be stretched pretty far before they come back with any type of consistent dominance, if at all.  In fact if Brady Yoke is around for awhile, will he ever win Vs Urban Meyer?  He will come close but I don't see it.

If you are saying the down votes are due to trolls just hitting the down vote instead of reading the post.  I say bull, and by saying bull, that means the person has read the post and has chosen the RIGHT to cast a down vote on said article.  OH MY GOD, take your ball and go home already.

Not to be a stick in the mud but why is the I in Michigan have an *?  I thought the common way to dis the blew was to type *ichigan...deleting the block *.

Comment 03 May 2014

Russell is that good.  There are a few good Frosh coming in to the BigTen next year and Russell has the talent to be the best.  He slashes, shoots, rebounds and dishes with ease.  If he comes in ready to go we will be just fine.

u man-Why are you writing anything on here...this story wasn't important to us the day after it came out.  Anything written about Mitch McGary is certainly old news.  We simply don't care as much as you want us to, and um, probably never will.  We will let ya know, thanks for writing.

Comment 31 Mar 2014

In Jan we all talked about the most hated coach in the Big Ten...Bo Ryan was the winner.  Now we are supposed to say hey Bo you go man, your it all for the BigTen.  Sorry, is it a shame the BigTen didn't fare better yesterday and get 3 teams in the final four, yes...but only in passing.  Not sitting on the edge of my seat hoping Michigan, Michigan St and Wisc make the Final Four.  Can't hate to see teams win one part of the year only to hope they win in another.  If you rooted for Michigan!!

Caddy Shack 2...worst movie, worst sequel

and worst actor...Jackie Mason.

Comment 30 Mar 2014

What if Seibert would have made it.  White (Iowa),  Adrian Payne and Trae Jackson all wanted to be Buckeyes...everyone forgets Aaron Craft went to Tennessee 1st.  This topic bothers me so much its nice to see others get involved.  We are losing too many guys in our back yard that WANT to be here its pathetic.  It rests with Matta but somebody else is evaluating talent for this team that shouldn't be.  If it is only Matta doing evaluating, this better be a wake up call.  Losing Kennard isn't the best but he didn't want to be here.


Comment 26 Mar 2014

Russell isn't coming to Ohio State to back anyone up.  This kid is good.  Unless he falls flat and has a horrible year Ohio State will be in a lot of close games.  Winning these close games however is going to be this teams identity.  The Seniors and the progress of Amir and Trey will dictate the attitude and if nobody comes up as a scorer/leader...its going to be one long season. 

Comment 24 Mar 2014

Only reason Ross is tweeting this is because he doesn't want the info to come from a source outside of Ohio State.  Kid is showing some class by letting the university run the presser. 

Comment 24 Mar 2014

We aren't even on Turners Radar.  Look at his latest news we are less than 1% chance.  Turner is gone.  Kennard is gone. Ross is gone.  See the theme?


Comment 24 Mar 2014

Thad Matta was told when he took the job to be a consistent winner at Ohio State you needed to secure Ohio.  Trey Burke Mich, Aaron White Iowa, A. Payne, Travis Trice Michigan State, Jackson at Wisc. All Ohio kids that seriously wanted to play at Ohio State. Now its Kennard.  Even A. Craft went to Tennessee 1st.. When is going to be mentioned that maybe Matta isn't the recruiter he gets credit for or his eye for talent isn't what it was.   Conley and Oden are once in a lifetime gets.  DeSaun Thomas isn't coming around again soon.  Obviously just because a kid is a McDonalds All-American doesn't mean he can be a top Div 1 player.  You need to have someone who can get the ones that are and want to be at Ohio State.  Maybe this years class is a change and these guys coming in are just that, lets hope. 

Comment 24 Mar 2014

Luke Kennard will be a Buckeye.  Has always liked Coach Matta and he is exactly the kinda player Matta can make into a solid All-American.
