Helmet Stickers: 44 | Leaderboard

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 later and watching JT fall on the sword for Gee and Smith.

If I had the ability to send a helmet sticker I would emphatically! This happened all of last year as well. We had to develop a rotation on the D-Line, nothing changed. We had to get our tight ends more involved, didn't happen. We have to stop pounding Braxton so often on designed runs, we pound him towards a medical redshirt. This year we have specifically heard the names you mention above and nothing changes. There needs to be a serious 'come to Jesus' meeting or guys need to find a new place to coach. This is not a knee jerk reaction but rather a disturbing trend that has cost us or nearly cost us for five consecutive games.

Did not see this and appreciate the link. So many beers, so little time! I can't imagine drinking anything other than craft brews now.....variety and taste, local guys competing against the big boys, and an excuse to check in on the UNTAPPD app. Go Buckeyes!

Just east of Cincinnati. The recent craft beer surge has taken hold in our area with Lesser Path, Rhinegeist, 50West, Rivertown and others. I am not so familiar with the choices in Columbus but I am getting some pretty damn good advice on here......it is appreciated.

I knew I came to the right place. Plan on swinging by Jungle Jims tomorrow and filling the cart! Keep 'em coming......
