I have scarlet and grey in my DNA. I honestly think I am the biggest buckeye fan of all time. I have been a buckeye fan from the day I was born and the OSU hospital. I assume Woody Hayes was the person who delivered me :-)

Second favorite memory is when I used to delvier coffee to the horse shoe grounds keeper pesonal. I was able to drive into the stadium and unload what they needed. They let me sit on the chairs and enjoy and empty stadium of 100,000 + emtpy seats and enjoy the smell of the fresh cut grass... amazing. To make it even more memorable, one time when I was leaving I ran into Coach Tressel and Troy Smith. I actually got a pic with them!! It was incredible, will never forget it.

~Win, lose or tie buckeye til I die.

I would love to go to this game! My reason: I bleed scarlet and gray and was in the Navy (hence my screen name of gm3). A little more detail to my situation: I grew up on the Southwest side of Columbus on Central and Sullivant ave-- not the best part of town (known as "the bottoms"). When I was little, I was a big time trouble maker. My mom worked two jobs so she really didnt have much time to spend with me and my dad left her when I was born. One day when I was in the sixth grade, I got into a fight with a kid and principle told me I was going to be expelled (4th offense). My gym teacher talked him out of it and said he would take care of it. So he told me he wanted me to play football. I told him that sounds like fun, so I went to practice that day. They just got there pads that day as well. He told me to go out there and hit the guy as hard as possible. So I did it and the coach was so impressed with me that he let me start TE and DE for him. It really changed my life... I was able to get out all of my frustation from my day-to-day life I lived on the field-- not on another person. It taught me the meaning of being apart of something bigger than myself, and to always give my all in everything I do. Fast forward a few more years and I decided to change my life again, so I joined the Navy. I went on two deployments and got two Navy Achievement Medals (very rare for an E-2 and E-3 to get). I also got my Associated degree in Computer Science while on both of my Deployments. When I got out, I used my GI Bill to get my BA degree. I have never had the money or means to see my Buckeyes play very many times (two in all in the shoe... and those tickets was also given to me). I would love the chance to see them play in Baltimore!

Man I feel so bad for bmills... Tough break for the young man! I hope surgery goes well and he really gets back to 100% so he can provide for his son/family. My prayers and thoughts sent his way for sure. Lets hope this team bonds together now and feed everyone a big shit sandwhich!

It is going to happen one day, for sure. But they totally dominated us in the beginning (I think they won like 20 something games in a row). But I dont see us as lucky more than they do have a semi-decent team and we just did not show up the whole game. It is always going to be a tight game TTUN vs OSU. TTUN is not a terrible team. They just have some bad coaching and had some bad miscues with not getting lineman playing well and having new ones waiting to replace your old ones. They also have a hard time getting the McMillans and Dixons (elite recruits) to go up there and play for them(pretty brutal in the winter).

 So there is no reason to even play the games, huh? *

and our luck is running thin against Michigan (gasp).

Right, because we have been SOOO lucky against them.

I did same but only had 5 cases to give to my friends that lived up there. Wished I would of heard it was this bad before I left and I would of filled my truck and maybe got a u-haul. Stay safe man.

Sorry, man. And yeah, I went up there fishing and was in total shock. I mean it was unreal. People are on the edge of rioting and fighting each other! It is crazy crazy. I hope all gets better for you man.

I agree with TTUN jerseys. I actually kinda like to Sparty one with the punisher logo on it. But OSU was the best IMO (bias in both ways; OSU fan and work at nationwide lol)
