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.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching my son after his team battled through the losers' bracket to win the city north U13 baseball championship. Will never forget the smiles as they took turns hoisting the trophy. Best Buckeye moments....see above!
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Too many to name just one but rest assured they were wearing the scarlet and gray
  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL PLAYER: David Lighty.....no question
  • NFL TEAM: The Bengals and whoever is playing the steelers
  • NBA TEAM: The Cavaliers now that LBJ is back home
  • MLB TEAM: The Cincinnati Reds
  • SOCCER TEAM: Warren County U13 (my daughter's team :))

Boring, pro-style offense reminiscent of Tresselball

If watching the 2002 season, three years with Troy Smith and three years of Terrell Pryor at the helm is boring then paint me with that brush too.

Yes. The best 18-22 year olds versus the best of the best 23-30 year olds. FBS versus FCS is still 18-22 year olds competing against each other. 

Around 10,000 1A scholarship NCAA football players each year whittled down to around 1,700 NFL players, and the NFL rosters are filled with guys from 21-22 years old up into their 30's. The average age of a college roster is probably in the 20-21 range while the NFL is around 26. There is a HUGE gap in maturity of the athlete.
