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.

Reporting the thoughts of the guys closest to one of the all time greats to ever play in the scarlet and gray requires no apology. Neither does his decision. Whatever he decides to do should come with the full support of this fan base. His commitment and talent helped keep this ship afloat during a very difficult time. The fact that the difficult time was so short was by in large a product of what he was able to do his three years behind center. I would love nothing more than to see him walk out as captain every game and have a crapload of highlight moments his final year here.

Go BUCKEYES!

In many ways, Ohio State – which checks in sixth all-time with 863 wins – is the Pittsburgh Steelers of college football

How can I love this comparison and hate it all at the same time?

Along with Johnny Utah....guys looked like twins!

The 'Holy Buckeye' call was one of the greatest moments in Buckeye history. I thought he and Herbstreit were a great team too.

Agree with the entire list except 'Keith Jackson and...well anyone'. I would qualify that with the younger Keith Jackson and anyone other than Dan Fouts. The call of the 2002 NC game was quite possibly the worst in history. Keith Jackson was clueless and Fouts........well........we all know......

I know we all want the season to get here but guys, relax, take a load off, get a cold one in your 11W pint glass, put on your 85 yards through the heart of the south t-shirt and enjoy the next few months as reigning UNDISPUTED NATIONAL CHAMPIONS........don't wish time away.

Oh.......BTW, great read Ramzy!

The BUCKEYES always get the opponents' best shot. With the depth waiting for a shot to play I also don't see complacency as an issue. This offense could and should be a sledgehammer.

Go BUCKEYES

Serves several purposes too......recruits, we take care of our players.....there is going to be an annual spring battle for young guys to fight for a spot on the two deep.......finally and most importantly our proven guns can heal while leading and getting faster and stronger. Great day to be a BUCKEYE, but isn't every day?!

I am going to make a prediction that his number of followers trends just a little bit upward today......

I did enjoy his calls of boxing but Tex Cobb's quote on Cosell was one of the best I have heard. When asked by a reporter how he felt about Howard Cosell refusing to ever call a boxing match again after witnessing the beating that Larry Holmes had inflicted on Cobb, Cobb's reponse was something along the lines of "I'd go 15 more with Larry if I could get him to quit football".
