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.

I think we are underselling how good the Buckeyes played late last year after the MSU debacle. Michigan gave the game to MSU and then hung 34 unanswered points in a 41-7 win over Florida. A Florida team that lost to Bama by 14 after winning the SEC East. Michigan plays a weak schedule this year other than their two biggest tests which are both on the road. As much as I would love to see them suffer don't be surprised if they show up in Columbus as an undefeated or 1 loss team. Then lets crush their hopes and dreams.

Go BUCKEYES!

but it should say something that billionaire weirdo Mark Cuban can waltz on to a mid-day talk show wearing a Smurfs t-shirt while talking matchup minutiae and still be the most relatable person on the set

This applies to damn near every talk show, whether its on ESPN, FS1, any of the news channels, or clogging up your TV on any mid-morning network show. They are all Jerry Springer. Great read and the 18 minute clip of Cuban calmly blowing them up was worth every second. I wish Buckeye fans today, me included, would have enough resolve to turn the channel enough or ignore the crap enough for future Buckeye fans to respond when finding this article in the archives and say 'who the hell is Mark May'? Go BUCKEYES and thank you 11W!

Would love to see an annual Bob Huggins reunion. Would also love to see some of the best of the Big 12 in Nippert on a Thursday night. Would also be a great geographical rival to WV.

Agree with the first comment but I actually would have thought they would have moved on expansion already. They don't seem to be in much of a hurry.
