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.

A little different level of sustained success over the years followed by quite possibly the worst scandal in the history of college athletics. The thought of Penn State getting back to the top so quickly was something I thought impossible just a year or two ago. Looks like they have a decent shot of staying in the conversation for awhile.

What Rich Rod (and Hoke to a lesser extent) did to um we all knew was short term. What Sandusky did to Penn State I thought had a chance to last for decades. Good for Penn State that I was wrong.

Anyone here think we would have fared better if we played them again in Happy Valley at the end of the year? Anyone here think we looked better than them in the Fiesta compared to their performance in the Rose?

Their win against us might have been heavy in the 'bounces falling their way' category but they improved over the last month and bowl prep. Our buckeyes........not so much.
