I get what hes saying. I have seen "Come to Ohio State or get beat by Ohio State" posted quite often and multiple comments along the lines of " Why would anyone choose to go somewhere else? We just won the Natty!" But, I think the success of our team allows us to ask that question because from a football standpoint, we are #1. That can not be argued. And, from an academic standpoint, we do sit above a majority of opposing institutions. The OP is right about one thing: We should respect a teenagers decision to attend a non-OSU school. Its hard to take off the homer glasses when we just proved ourselves better than any other school, but we should make an effort to do so.
I like "Hunter of Ducks" better. And we should throw in "Father of Tyvis" and "Separator of Shoulders".
I took it as...
We're aware we ruffled some feathers by holding camps in the south, so to avoid NCAA punishment and pretend we aren't afraid of SEC schools, come up here to our camps. Maybe you could teach us something, we have no clue how to beat Urban.
According to Beth Mowin's roster, that would be Rod Jones.
Should've elaborated: In my dreams, no other Celtic player scores.
I hope Turner and Sullinger drop 50 a piece and the Celtics still lose by 30.
You get it. Thank you. This is wonderfully put.
Downvotes aren't the issue. Downvoting people for having an opinion that you don't share is. People shouldn't be afraid to speak their mind.
What are you talking about?
EDIT: Nevermind, you weren't talking about me.
I'm not worries about helmet stickers. I opened myself up to allow people to DV me. I am worried, sir, about people being treated unfairly simply because they have an opinion that others don't agree with. It makes me afraid to voice my opinion if it doesn't match how the majority of members feel. I dont want to be berated and belittled because I might not agree with someone's opinion. Should I be afraid to comment on this site if what I have to say isn't in agreement to how everyone else feels?
I upvoted you for using a word I had never heard before (peccadilloes) because it forced me to look it up and identify its meaning. I learned something new today, which is always my goal, so thank you.
Thank you. That actually put a nice smile on my face. (no sarcasm)
JTF, you are an awesome contributor to this website. There is no denying that. We have come across each others paths before, and it has always been pleasant. I agree with you here, but this is a site where fans can interact. I felt it was my responsibility as a member of this site to voice my opinion on the topic because it is unfair of us, as free members, to ask the staff/mods to oversee every single detail of this site. The staff focuses on keeping the site free and delivering A+ content, and the Mods do their best to keep the riff-raff in check but we have to be held accountable for our actions. Much like referees, even if they're giving 100%, they cant be expected to catch everything. As a community, every member should be expected to step up and do their part. If we see something crass, we report it. If we see someone treated unfairly, we stand up for them. If someone is crying out for help, we offer them a hand. We have the undisputed #1 team in the land, we have the undisputed #1 alumni base in the land. Lets step up and be the undisputed #1 fans in the land.
Please, keep it kosher in here. Feel free to DV me if you feel I've crossed a line.

This shirt is awesome, the 85 yards shirt is awesome...but can we make a shirt celebrating someone other than Zeke too? A Slobs shirt would be awesome!
TTUN can have their Snobs, I'm rollin' with the Slobs... or something
EDIT: Or something commemorating Evan Spencers block...
I threw you an upvote to help offset the downvotes. I disagree with your opinion, but you were constructive with your criticism so I dont believe you should be penalized for having a differing opinion than others.
According to Birm's math, he has visited us 11.5 times per day over the last year...I think the feeling is mutual.
EDIT: I'm using a cell phone so I cant use italics but I hope my comment is taken for what it is(sarcasm)
Conquer or concur? Both work, considering the Buckeyes are going to conquer every opponent and don't forget...we're undisputed #1 fans.
Throughout your time here at 11W, you have alienated quite a few people with some of your comments and been rewarded with downvotes galore. BUT, this comment is simple and elegant, albeit juvenile. And, 100% accurate. Upvote from me.
The love I have for Ohio State football makes my significant other really jealous.
I'm sorry, but that seems like you're describing Ohio too.
I don't know the background of this, but I can share a story and hope it helps:
When I was 19, my dad and I got in a huge fight and I told him he was terrible and I never wanted to speak to him again. The silence lasted two years. 4 years ago, I came around and admitted I was wrong. Hes my best friend in the world now.
Moral: It CAN get better. Love her with all your heart and stay open, things may change. Granted, I'm a man, but I'm sure the same can happen for you and your daughter. God bless, and if you need anything, 11w and myself are here for you.
Well, what else is there to do in Nebraska? "Do you want to go to the football game or go cow-tipping?" I didn't even know there was 70,000 people in Nebraska. That's gotta be at least 95% of the state's population.
Looks a lot like Brooklyn Decker.
EDIT: That is Brooklyn Decker.
