I have always been a Buckeye fan but truly became a diehard after attending football camp under Earl Bruce back in the early 80's. My first car was a gray 1980 Cutlass with scarlet interior called the Woodymobile (bench front seat, an entire generation of kids have no idea how great a bench front seat is!). I grew up in Cincinnati (which should actually be part of Kentucky) where there are plenty of Buckeye faithful that are typically overshadowed by hillbillies, catholic school devotees, and cute little bearcat fans with massive inferiority complexes. I now live outside of Hamilton county where you see the Buckeyes flags fly 365 days a year. My favorite Buckeyes moments: a 3-way tie between throwing with Art as a sophmore in high school, watching Cie Grant toss Dorsey to the ground like a rag doll, and yelling like a madman as Ted Ginn returned the opening kickoff as I watched from 20 rows up in the 2006 NC game. Worst Buckeye moments: about 30 minutes after the Ted Ginn moment and watching JT fall on the sword for Gee and Smith.

That's why recruiting classes should really be measured again after they perform. The 2002 class was top 3 at least and had several 5 and 4 star kids that didn't pan out for various reasons, but their overall results were incredible. I think the 2013 class has the potential to leave an even bigger mark on the program than the 2002 class did which says a lot considering there were key players from that class that won a national title and others who played for another a few years later. The Tressel years were arguably the best ten year run in Buckeye history and we just might be in year three of a ten year run that eclipses that! Every day is a great day to be a Buckeye but we are living in heady times for the Scarlet and Gray! Go BUCKEYES!

Yeah, Tressel's second class was pretty good. Let's see.......Maurice Clarett (Big 10 Freshman of the Year and all around beast), Santonio Holmes (25 career TDs, Super Bowl MVP),  a low rated Nick Mangold that has played in 5 pro bowls, Rob Sims (9th year in the NFL), Quinn Pitcock (All American), AJ Hawk (two time All American, Lombardi Award winner, Pro Bowler, etc...), and Troy Smith (All American, Heisman, Fiesta Bowl MVP, and his number is hung at Ohio Stadium along side guys like Griffin, George, Harley, Cassady.......). There are others who earned All Big Ten honors and played on Sundays that we could mention as well. Yep, it was pretty good.......and yes, 2013 could be even better.

Had to close the door to my office to hide the tears. It doesn't matter what anyone here thinks or believes but don't you just wish you could give that kid the ability to hop up and run, throw, and kick that pigskin all over the field?! My wish is that people a heckuva lot smarter than me find a cure and that in this life or the next that young man and his little brother get to suit up in some scarlet and gray. Go BUCKEYES! Go JACOB JARVIS!

Great to see the D-Line rotation early in the game. In the first few series you saw Schutt, Frazier, and even Carter. As the game progressed Lewis and Munger played as well (not sure about others). Just giving the starters a blow here and there paid dividends as the game progressed. Hope we keep that mindset next month. Go BUCKEYES!

Briles told ESPN.com. “I’ll say that. I’m not sure if there’s a connection on there that is that familiar with the Big 12 Conference. To me, that’s an issue.”

Hey Art, I am thinking Tom Osborne has a unique familiarity with the Big 12 conference as he won the damn thing 13 times in route to 3 national titles.

I think the point being made is that Wisconsin was THIRD in the division and got a free pass to the title game.
