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 :))

There was a smattering of boos early and they were quite noticeable when Cardale overthrew the pass in the flats in the third quarter. I think JT replaced him the next series. SAD TO HEAR THAT. I think JT is the better option but why boo? Do people really think if They boo it might actually affect Urban's decision? Sat in front of an ass clown that complained the entire game. You are booing a guy who led us in the most amazing three game stretch in buckeye history. Seriously?! Trust Meyer to make the right decisions. The last time I remember a situation even remotely close to this was in 1996 when a certain former coach decided to screw with a lineup that had delivered a 10-0 record only to see it slip away in The Game when he decided to start 'the other guy' who was the 'fans choice'.

Michigan will be a one or two loss team when we visit them in November. We better bring the A game!

Hit the nail on the head about last year, the Buckeyes were outplayed and more importantly out coached in last year's game. It was beyond frustrating to see the lack of adjustments. That week on a rival site we were told (by a guy who likes his cigars) that we as fans were wearing scarlet colored glasses and should expect 3-4 losses minimum. Leave the criticism and prognosticating to the 'experts'. That is one of the reasons why I seldom visit that site anymore. 

On the plus side.....the adjustments AFTER the game were astronomical. Do we win a national championship if we had squeaked by last September and thought all is well? I don't think so.

Remember when Zach Smith was hired only because of a famous Buckeye relative, was the staff weak link in both coaching and recruiting, and should be fired? Me neither.....
