I was a Scott House veteran too, having survived the water fights (with trash cans and pilfered chem hoses) & the flush flood in 1969. My 3 roomies and I lived on the 2nd floor with a window over the lobby roof. If the RA left his window open, we'd go out on the roof & into his room to remove and hide all his furniture. Good times for undergrads.

And OSU had maids to clean the rooms and bathrooms once a week. So there was little grunginess. Does that not happen anymore?

Looks like everyone except Lyle gained weight from last year. Loving, Grandstaff, Williams and Lorbach all gained 5 lbs each, Giddens & Harris 10 lbs each, and Mitchell 15 lbs. But the following numbers seem unreal: Tate +35 lbs, Thompson +40 lbs, and  Bates-Diop 45 lbs.  (From last year's roster and reported weights from recruiting).

I'm hoping 11w sleuths can find out if this is fat or if they are now chiseled tough guys.

But some people just need to have something to complain about. Or just can't relax. Or are just generally miserable people. 

Chronic complainers? Whiners? Glass half-empty crowd? 

How do they enjoy something?

Or can they?

these streaks are won one game at a time!!

And one possession play at a time.

Thanks for the preseason view of a couple of teams in transition. By my count the men have a roster of 27, with 10 being freshmen. One new coach.

The women have 25 on their roster, with 6 frosh, one being a redshirt freshman. Two new coaches.

Best of luck to all, and...

Go Buckeyes!

with the same guys we have this year.......

It was mostly the same guys we have this year, but not Braxton. And NOT the same guys we had LAST year. No Evan or Devin, for example. 

And the OC, QB & RB coaches are different.

I can't speak for others, just myself. I root for the Ohio State Buckeyes, no matter the sport, whether they are struggling, or playing like national champs, because they are my alma mater. I may hope they play better, but I support them through thick and thin, often by saying "C'mon Buckeye(s), you can DO IT !"

Oh, and in football, things have been pretty darn "thick" for the last few dozen or so years. 

Go Buckeyes!
