I've lived in Ohio my whole life and in the Columbus area since I was seven. I've been a Buckeye since my birth in 1980. I attended my first game in the shoe when I was seven. Since I was seven and the 1988 football season, I've only missed nine Ohio State home games. I attended every game of the 2002 national championship season except at Northwestern.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Going to the national championship game vs. Miami on January 3, 2003 and watching the Buckeyes win it all! Going to Holy Buckeye, rushing the field for TTUN game in 2006 for #1 vs. #2 and for Tressel's last game vs. TTUN in 2012 (and rushing it in 1998 and 2002), and doing O-H-I-O around the Big Outhouse in 2009. Also, going to the 2012 Buckeyes game vs. Purdue and not leaving early (never do!), seeing the Buckeyes crush Notre Dame in the Shoe in 1995, and seeing Eddie rush for 314 vs Illinois in the Shoe in 1995. Finally, attending the Ohio State vs. TTUN game where Tressel gave his famous speech about beating them after he was hired.

Abalamba? Is this similar to La Bamba? It looks like this was the point where the tequila began kicking in.

This is thread has been truly entertaining. If you are this good before the tequila, what happens after it?

It is freaking amazing that this team lost 9 straight and 6 straight (15 of 17) and they already are back to within only 5 points of a playoff spot. Unbelievable and I hope they can keep this current run going.

Someone who gets it. The games almost always being close regardless of how horrible they are is because in a rivalry as passionate as this one every single player out there is giving everything they have. They are going above what they do in any other game. As soon as all the I wish Michigan were better people have their dream come true, WE WILL NOT WIN EVERY GAME. We will lose at least once every 3 or 4 years and maybe more. If you want the B1G to be better, root for anybody but TTUN to improve....especially when we can still finish top four when they are downright pitiful. Who in their right mind would wish for a ten year war back? You'd rather win every other year than win every year? Sure, the rivalry would be more exciting but exciting < as many wins as possible for the Buckeyes. Also, how much more exciting can the games get before we aren't the one winning by a hair or pulling away with a couple late TDs? I loved the 1 vs. 2 game and the history of rivalry too, but don't rush it. If that returns, let it happen when it happens. NEVER hope for it. As soon as you start hoping for it, it will mean at least some of our wins turning to losses. It could mean worse (see Cooper years). Don't set yourself up to eat your words.

This is what I don't get about Toledo...why are there more TTUN fans than Buckeye fans there? It is the same thing if you go to Sandusky/Cedar Point. I realize they are both a stone's throw from Ann Arbor/Michigan, but it isn't like it isn't still within the borders of Ohio. It is good to hear we have some Buckeye fans representing from there.

I can see all the kids overseas now....running around in their Wisconsin Bearcat jackets and drinking out of their Figthing Irish stadium cups.

Edit: I must not forget their Wisconsin Badger 2014 B1G championship hats, their Alabama Sugar Bowl Champs t shirts, and their Jameis Can't Lose hoodies.

Jim Harbinger of more Buckeye beatdowns and a dumpster fire that cannot be tamed.

Comment 19 Dec 2014

I feel the same way.....but it isn't like they didn't all have another pair or more.

Comment 18 Dec 2014

Congrats....maybe start him on a punching bag to begin his pre-Ohio State training (clenched left fist in pic 1).

Comment 18 Dec 2014

How does never taking plays off, setting school records, and being an amazing defender have nothing to do with his game? The other things he said just adds to that.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

Exactly....enjoy complete domination and TTUN being the worst dumpster fire ever known to man, and hope it lasts forever. Amazing things usually don't. As soon as TTUN is back on the rise or nearing/back to elite level, you will be wishing for these days back. Trust me. I lived through pre-Tressel days and so did many others.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

Are you sure about that? The team who has pulled a rabbit out of their hat for two straight years is now playing a team who just lost their best defender.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

Beat me to it....I had my comment half typed but the phone rang.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

Unless we meet FSU instead of Oregon....but, it isn't like topping off Gordon and Cooper by beating last year's Heisman winner who hasn't lost in two years instead of this year's is any less impressive (more actually).

I'm confused to exactly what the mother thought he should have done differently or what the producers asked him to do differently when they retaped it. They thought explaining the rules to her was somehow insensitive? He should have just assumed she knew to leave for fear of her feelings being hurt? And, he should have known of a requirement to make her feel better after his "mistake"? Come on.
