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.

My hope is the the motivation is already in place. There are so many young, talented players who WANT TO PLAY! They would not be at Ohio State under Urban Meyer unless they knew going in the work it was going to take to get on the field. The motivation to hold off those behind you or to crack the two deep on this roster should be all the motivation we need to get us to September.....then the real fun begins again.

I remember sitting in Skully's Pub in downtown Cincinnati drinking a beer, listening to the ignorant UK fans in the bar, and watching the Buckeyes dismantle the boys in blue.........yet another great day to be a BUCKEYE!

If we had a beer drinking game where everyone had to take a swig with each 'get him!' shouted from the stands during any football game there would not be enough beer in the world to cover a single fall weekend. Great read, great plays, great memories!

Go BUCKEYES!

Just watched the Bennett media interview and it was worth every second. You could not ask for a better ambassador for college football, the Ohio State Buckeyes, and the Ohio State University. Here's to a long prosperous career!
