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.

Unfortunately we need games like this early in the season and especially with a young team. My only beef with scheduling MAC schools is the thought that we should be keeping the money in state. Alternate between Miami, Bowling Green, Toledo, Akron, Kent State, and OU with UC tossed in every now and then. Let MSU and UM take care of the directional michigan schools. It helps ease the budget constraints for the Ohio schools, gives us a good tune up game, and gives other Ohio kids the opportunity to play in Ohio Stadium.

Just noticed the entire game posted at the end of the article. Even if you don't have the time to watch the game in its entirety please watch the pregame Sportsmanship Handshake and the postgame singing of the alma maters. Gary Danielson, like him or not, getting choked up after the game and commenting on this being the best example of what makes college football great is a great tribute to class of the men on both sides of the ball that day.

Obviously an important W for the BUCKEYES, but more importantly I appreciated CBS showing the pregame handshake and the postgame singing of both alma maters. Watching our players hustling across the field to join in with Navy then back again for Carmen Ohio illustrated the class that Jim Tressel and Urban Meyer have brought to the program. Proud day to be a BUCKEYE.

Huge BUCKEYE fan here and I wouldn't sleep on a 9-10 win season next year for our rivals. They have had plenty of talent filter through over the last few years but no coaching. Harbaugh should change that immediately. Look at their schedule too. They could be sitting at 9-10 wins when we visit them this November. Let's just be sure to crush their dreams during that visit.

Go BUCKEYES!

PS, I'm not a 'the B1G needs a strong UM' guy either......0-12 suits me just fine!

Watching him hobble off of the field in the second quarter of the Sugar Bowl after taking a detour to pump up the o-line huddle.....then the group punches it in on the next play to pull to within a score fired me up sitting in my living room! Just one more year to enjoy having a Boren as the heart and soul of the BUCKEYES. That family will be missed. And to think, we were looking for a replacement at center under every rock just a few months ago.

Go BUCKEYES!

Let the dudes catch their breath. If scouts didn't see enough game film to properly evaluate them after 15 games and especially the late season run then the scouts need to find new employment! Rest up and get it done at the combine!

Peyton Manning "I have decided to get my ass handed to me for a fourth straight year by Florida and return to Knoxville for my senior year".

Comment 15 Jan 2015

A few days ago the discussion was the unheard of riches we have at QB and now we are looking at Stephen Collier and a walk on leading the teams at the spring game. Here's hoping Cardale strikes it big in the draft in Cleveland or elsewhere (looks like a no brainer to me if I were in his shoes) and Braxton and JT get well soon. What an amazing time to be a BUCKEYE!

Go BUCKEYES!

Recorded it on ESPN and it was the chopped up version that missed several big BUCKEYE plays. Found a replay on the SEC network and it was almost in its entirety. Which was kind of amusing considering it followed a replay of Ole Miss getting destroyed and included your normal SEC Bear Bryant commercials in between play.

Got it....thank you.....worth every minute!

Go BUCKEYES!
