Excellent read per usual, Ramzy. The first time I remember College football was the 1995 Notre Dame game. My parents were split and my dad was born and raised in Dayton so I would visit during the summers. I was visiting randomly during that specific game and I remember my dad and uncle yelling at the tv, that passion is what piqued my interest in the Buckeyes. My mother lived in Georgia which is where I went to middle and high school, and in Georgia college football is obviously King. I became more passionate about the Buckeyes during those years just because my friends were such big UGA fans and I wanted to stick it to them as much as I could. I totally agree with you about college football being a lot about where you're living, if I hadn't been brought up in these two places I probably wouldn't be nearly as big a college football fan as I am now.
I joined the signed up for the site on the first day that it became available in 2010. I remember stumbling upon the site for the first time in 2006, while I was a high schooler. I have been a regular reader ever since then. Thanks for the last ten years, everyone!
I graduated in 13' and I am lucky enough to go back multiple times a year. Nothing will ever compare the experiences that I had while I was a student at OSU. Can't wait until I go up on October 29th for the Northwestern game!
Sure, man, just let me know.
Did you want them? Like I said, they'll just go to waste if someone doesn't take them...
I want to try to attend at least one game in every other B1G stadium before I kick the bucket. I've only ever been to the big house. I also want to attend a Rose Bowl that OSU is playing in one of these days.
I agree with that to an extent. I think the reason I feel that way about OSU hoops is purely because it is OSU hoops and I love the university. I don't watch many other CBB games outside of the top 25 because it is so boring. Usually the Big Ten has a lot of parody on the hoops side, so while the actual on court product may suck for the most part, at least there's some drama within the league in terms of who is going to win it.
I kind of feel the same way as Kyle about being an OSU hoops fan. I love the sport of football so much more than basketball, especially Ohio State football, but I get so stressed out about football that sometimes it's a relief to be able to sit back and relax while rooting on the university that I love while watching the hoops program. Nothing in my mind compares to the passion that I have for OSU football but sometimes I burn myself out with that passion.
This is kinda what his hair reminds me of.
I agree with the 1996 Michigan game. If we had won that game and the Rose Bowl would have played out the way that it ended up playing out, we would have won the National Title. Period. That team was stacked in its own right, maybe not quite as stacked as the 1995 or 1998 versions, but still stacked none the less. This games still pains me when you think about the what ended up happening against ASU in the Rose Bowl. Looking through my scarlet colored glasses, I still think that team deserved a share of that title with UF.
Hopefully the pass rush will be getting to the opposition quarterback fast enough that our young secondary will not have to cover for very long. I have confidence that the coaches will get the players ready to go. BG will be an early test for the defense, because they like to chuck it around the yard a fair amount.

He's a God as far as I'm concerned.
Not very original but I really enjoy Game of Thrones. My all time favorite is that 70's show though.
I grew up in Dayton but I am a die hard Cleveland sports fan (Mostly because I despise Cincinnati sports). I hope beyond hope that Cleveland can get just one Championship before I kick the bucket. Can't wait to give this a watch. Cleveland til I die!
I want to win this game soooooo bad... I'm just kinda getting sick of MSU this year.
As nice as it would be to take Grier off of UF's hands, I just don't see him as a schematic fit.
Braxton's heave against Wisconsin was the highlight of my sophomore year at OSU. I was sitting in the south stands, and as soon as Smith caught the ball I was tackled by one of my roommates, and all I remember was seeing pitch black because I was at the bottom of a dog pile. Two of my buddies from high school came up from Georgia for that game. It was, and still is the most memorable game that I have been to in the Horseshoe.
Saw this today, and immediately bought it. I have a few memories of that duck while I was a student. RIP Afroduck.
Seems like a pretty good guy. Welcome aboard, coach Studrawa!
Another fantastic addition to your already awesome collection! Go Bucks!
The 95' ND game is my first Buckeye football memory. Not a bad one I'd have to say.
Hopefully we get back on track today. I'll be watching no matter what!
Great break down, Mike! Even though we lost this game it gives me a measure of hope for the rest of the season. I think that if we can play as well as we did against Virginia then we'll be in a lot of games this year.
Its already been put on my Christmas list!
