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.

With the possible playoff matchups that most are predicting (experts included), I am pretty sure staying focused/motivated won't be a problem for next season: possible revenge on USC, LSU, or Clemson or TCU/Baylor for their whining this year. This is the very reason I'd like three of these four to be there along with the Buckeyes.

I think the success of this year and how it played out as far as who got in and who got left out should rule out any possibility of an eight team playoff. The only options at this point (barring conference realignment) should be keeping it at four or going to six.

There were some of those on Ebay for sale but they were snapped up quickly.

Same. I've been talking about maybe meeting my brother there since he lives in North Carolina and it isn't too bad a drive for either of us.

I never get why they tell you that. I'd be calling someone besides my doctor.

Also, Cardale is in rare company of those who can wear their own apparel and for it to be completely okay.

This isn't true. It is actually okay for a lot of people. Look....

Easily Alabama....it felt glorious ramming it down their throat after all the years of hearing that the B1G sucks, the Buckeyes are the most overrated team in football, and the Buckeyes can't beat the SEC (SEC homers forgot to watch Ohio State beat Arkansas). I honestly saw the national championship game as a continuation of the Alabama game, with some extra business to handle before we hoisted the trophy. Also, it was easier to stay calmer and control my emotions more for the national championship (normally it is the opposite) because I knew if we could beat Alabama that there is no way in hell we were letting Oregon beat us.

Oh we don't give a damn for the whole state of Michigan! Come on, who's with me? What's with this liking and respecting them crap? If you actually want to respect them, respect Dantonio and not the school.

I agree with you that ESPN Film Room was cool to watch and very well done. That being said, if anybody caught the ESPN Voices version, it is horrible and it was an epic fail.

Fire and Birmstone!

I'm slightly worried that we may be discounting how "little" we lose this year too quickly because of how we responded to our losses this year. While we absolutely have a ton of young talent still and the actual number of losses isn't that great, we are losing a lot of key guys/leaders. I hope we can recover as well as we all think/hope.

After they see all the people at fan fest with Ohio State gear on/a combo of both, I think they may change their tune.
