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.

Remember when Zach Smith was hired only because of a famous Buckeye relative, was the staff weak link in both coaching and recruiting, and should be fired? Me neither.....

Gotta love this kid for his willingness to get moved all over the place and his ability to step in for a play in arguable the biggest moment in the biggest game for the Buckeyes in at least a decade. I do believe that play ended in the endzone to pull us to 13-21, setting up an amazing come from behind victory in the Sugar Bowl. I have little doubt he will be a beast this fall.

The state high school championships should stay in Columbus. Not only is the location the most convenient but I guarantee you if you asked the players thru the years where they would want to play the overwhelming answer (if not unanimous) would be the horseshoe. That should matter.

Too young. When we lose someone that young it always reminds of the prayer For the Fallen:

They shall not grow old as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.

They just need to either cover the helmet with leaves or move them to the left side!
