Saw the 1968 Rose Bowl live. Was there in Tempe for the greatest college football game ever. Flew the OSU flag while stationed in Afghanistan.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Nothing will ever top beating Miami in Tempe. When Cie Grant thew Dorsey to the ground, all the close, up not quite, national championship moments such as 1976 and 1980, Ron Springs slip, Clements punt to the helmet, etc. washed away.

The SEC is saved that week by Florida-Florida State, Georgia-Georgia Tech, and South Carolina-Clemson. Otherwise, the entire conference would be on the SEC Channel and watched only by SEC homers.

Andersons carries the Walnut Creek smoked provolone and frequently have it on sale for $4.99 a pound.

Are you old enough to remember the 2002 national championship team? If not, I understand. Ben Hartsock was the tight end. He was still in the NFL with the Patriots as of last season.

Remember when Dean tweeted to a doctor about a meniscus transplant? If you have an injury that requires this, there is no way you can train and play football at a high level. If Dean tries and sustains a crippling knee injury, the backlash for Andrews will be tremendous.

I think OSU has the depth to handle the increased snaps, especially in the back seven. The D-line remains to be seen. I understand your concern, but with all the offensive weapons OSU has, this is another way to turn up the heat. IMO, the positives outweigh the negatives.

I agree you need to be able to vary speed, but imagine Oregon with a physical line and a physical defense with depth. Yes, you do get more defensive snaps, but also more opportunity to force turnovers.

XM Sirius is talking this as I type. Sentiment is he should transfer. They are pointing to the Gene Smith conversation as taking place in Feb/March and a lot has transpired since then. I continue to think he will stay.

I'll repeat what I've posted before: Braxton's best route to the NFL is with his feet. His arm condition is uncertain. As an H-back, he'll get the ball in space. Also, he'd be an effective decoy. And he would excel as a wildcat QB with Cardale as a dangerous receiver/blocker. I also like the idea of him returning punts. Both Jalin and Dontre have fumbled too many times. This isn't to say Braxton wouldn't fumble too, but I'd give him a shot. If your route to the NFL is as a receiver, why not do it with the defending national champions.

I hope OSU speeds it up this season to average near 100 snaps per game. Those extra 25 touches will help feed the offensive talent. That includes whatever QBs who don't start. The key is the ability to run multiple formations/schemes without substituting. That way the defense can't substitute. I think OSU has that ability.

Yes, I believe so. Also there is a Schoenbaum Hall, part of the Fisher School of Business Complex. There is a display case with mementos in the lobby. IIRC, there is a picture of Alex with Woody related to the Astroturf donation. 

Comment 18 May 2015

Actually, Shoney's, founded by an ex-Buckeye football player Alex Shoenbaum. Donated the money for the installation of Astroturf in Ohio Stadium.

I can still sing "Roll onnnn, Big OOOOO. Get that juice up to Lawsons in 40 hours. Now one man sleeps while the other man drives...."

Chile Verde is good, but I also recommend Señor Antonios's in the Walmart plaza at 23/Powell Road. Very good basic Tex-Mex and good prices. Much better than El Vaquero. 

Comment 18 May 2015

It's facts like this that make me angry when I hear talk about conference relegation. Just because Purdue may be down doesn't mean we should trade them - football program, other sports, academics, and research dollars - for Northern Illinois.

Now the Elevator Brewing Company. Haven't been there so I don't know about the pool tables. 

They do have a dish involving super-hot Finnish soapstones where you cook your own beef filet strips. Somehow super-hot stones and microbrew sound like an accident waiting to happen.
