I'm out of stories, more of a yarn man now.

What is this, that stands before me?

If the mountains fell in the sea
Let it be, it ain't me
Got my own world to live through
And I ain't gonna to copy you

Yeah that's good....champagne and Ripple. We'll mix them together, that's my favorite. I call it Champipple!

Southpaw, guess I'm not right in the head.

I think I got a coupon good for one free Shis-k-Bob dinner at Western Sizzlin' (Mon through Thurs only) when I hit the 10k. I swapped it for a sixer of PBR and a couple of naked lady air fresheners. Win. Congrats on the milestone, Dude. Once I get the replacement corporate card, next round on me (believe the Lounge tab is still capped out).

I know I wasn't 100% confident against MSU, not after getting by in AA. The defense left me wishing, hoping...anything but confident.

New day, new season.

I'm nervous about each and every game, but I keep looking "at Minnesota".

Our (or Ohio State's) weakness is inexperience.

Offensive line, skill spots, back seven on defense. Plenty of talent, but much of it unproven.

Comment 20 Jul 2014
Ah, damn it. Keep thinking Brasky has been in the league longer than that...sure feels like it. I'll nominate Jeff Zgonina from Purdue instead, four year starter who was tough to move in the trenches.

They've all been great, but this CI sure stands out. Humble, hungry (even for the right chili), focused and determined... Justin Hilliard impresses off the field as well. Very confident this young man finds individual and team success in Columbus. Go Buckeyes.

The wife just mentioned his passing, immediately thought of that show. Loved the intro song, that Firebird (along with David Starsky's Gran Torino) was the first iconic car on TV that I was in awe of (the General Lee and KITT to follow later). I'm probably (hopefully) halfway through this life as we know it. My short term memory has its lapses, but I share what I know and ask about what I don't. What were we talking about again? (I kid) Plenty to look forward to, especially this fall. Can't wait.

There was a time... Love JB. The man was entertaining on and off stage.

Appreciate the revival, Vico - and belated mulitple thank yous for the many times I caught these on You Tube.

Missed out on this game, I was in the Navy. Remember running up to our ship's CIC early Sunday morning at the end of a mid-watch to read the faxed scores of the previous day's college football games - and seeing the good guys eke out a one point (20-19) win over the Cardinals in 1992. 

Though they were far from the best teams Howard Schnellenberger coached, he had the Cardinal very competitive by the time he left the program (for Oklahoma) after the '94 season.

I can't argue with these five, but I have to honorably mention the '94 game. I was a freshman in undergrad school after four years in the drink (at sea with the Navy) and this was the first time I had seen OSU-M..igan since Bo's last game in '89. 

It was also the first win for Cooper (I still had hopes he'd get the rivalry right) I'd seen, and helped make up for a tough season that had losses to Washington, Illinois (again) and the Penn State blowout (I can say that comfortably now after last year's payback).

The Citrus Bowl loss to 'Bama hurt, Joey Galloway had a great game, unfortunately so did Sherman Williams for the Tide. But I was still happy to have a win over the arch-rival for the first time in what seemed forever, and I knew Ohio State was looking good the seasons ahead.

I know it can be a double-edged sword, but I suggest some emphasis on the misuse of down voting, i.e. the serial downvoter. Some folks never learn, but it should be stated that serial downvoting is a quick ticket out. Also, for the extreme lunkheads, something on the use of multiple accounts?

Also appreciate the details KHolmes. I was under the impression he too was on the hot seat, especially after recently reading the John U. Bacon commentary here not too long ago (sorry I don't have the link handy).
