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.

I was living in my first apartment in Reading, OHIO. Had a couple of friends over and for some reason my best friend's dad was with us. We were headed out to bar hop when I stumbled on the fight on HBO. Not being on pay per view was the first thing that made me take notice. Growing up, I spent many a Sunday afternoon watching great fights with my dad on the regular network stations. Those days were long gone.  We thought about leaving expecting a 22 second knockout similar to the one Tyson inflicted on Michael Spinks not to much earlier. When Buster Douglas came out of the dressing room in Scarlet and Gray with his entourage dressed the same we had to stick around. What a great fight! Buster reminded me a lot of a very underrated heavyweight champion; Larry Holmes. His long jab destroyed Tyson that night. Yet another GREAT DAY TO BE A BUCKEYE!

Met him at a womens' basketball game with my daughter and one of her friends when the kids were about 10 years old. He called them over for a picture when they waved to him, handed them a buckeye, and was exactly what you want as an ambassador for the university. My daughter still has the picture and the buckeye on her desk in her room.

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......
