  • SPORTS MOMENT: Attending the OSU-UM game in 2006 after my oldest brother got offered extra tickets to the game from OSU "because we oversold Minnesota, want 2 more tickets to Michigan instead?". I flew back. I have 4 brothers, I had to sit with the traitor but we had a ball at Hineygate and the game. Best tailgating I ever saw; total party.

Which is why I fly Southwest Airlines every time I can.  They just don't do the BS all the other airlines do, especially charging $40 for a bag and other hidden fees.  I also like that their staff are allowed to actually have a personality.  If the other airlines would enforce their own rules regarding carry-ons (I have see women with their carry on suitcase, then an oversized purse, then some big ol' shopping bag thingy) be allowed to board with all that crap.

Blatz is what my husband would call "A Thursday night beer"

Comment 25 Aug 2014

Beers 50 - 250 never happens because you are there to watch games, not spend every minute in the beer & bathroom lines.

I don't think Hoke is stupid, but honestly with that program, you guys deserve better.  I think he is very average at best. This year will be really telling.  I am baffled that when asked something about tenacity or toughness, I forget the exact question, he clearly stated he didn't know what to do to fix the problem.  Hey Brady, you're the damn coach.  Figure it out.

It seems to me that Desmond is pulling a Mark May here; he's trolling.

I also completely agree with you.  Let's not forget that in 2002 we had 2 overtime games, the Holy Buckeye 10-6 win over Purdue (!!! Purdue!!!) and other close games.    I don't think that team had nearly the offensive talent of other recent teams we've fielded but we got lucky in a few games.   Our defense might have been the best that year.

Have the happiest of Birthdays, 11W!  8 is great!

Comment 19 Aug 2014

Which is exactly why dogs have masters, but cats have staff.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

What you have to do each week is execute better than the team on the other sideline.  Even without Braxton, I think we can do that very consistently.  While I wish Brax a speedy recovery, I don't think the wheels are off the cart.  It's a very good point that Barrett and Jones have been getting lots of reps and we still have time before Navy.   It's not like those two are single star chumps. 

Breathe in, slowly exhale.  Deep breath, exhale. Repeat 3x.

I disagree, I think it was a totally stupid decision to put them back on the schedule.  It's  Meh - Lose - Lose.  If they beat them badly, then they're just doing what they were supposed to every time they play.  If it's close,  then it's OMG panic, panic, PANIC.  And if they lose to them again, it's the Horror, Part Deux. 

This Appy St team isn't as good as the one they played the last time.  TTUN needs to beat them 63-0 to save face here.  It was stupid to schedule them for  a home game.   Now if they went there, it might have made more sense from a pride advantage but they are hardly going to give up THAT kind of revenue and a home game.

Unfortunately Alabama if scheduling non-conference in November only picks directional U's.  So we'd have to change our name to  "the Central Ohio State".

Comment 13 Aug 2014

"Aaron Craft can work a rubics cube in 2 minutes" would like to have a word with you too.

Comment 11 Aug 2014

Um, well, uh the panic is definitely starting to set in over there.  Errrrrr, Urban always says that starters are pretty much all determined by the end of spring.  The uh, er, blue coaching staff can't make up their minds and last I checked, Appy St game is 20 days away and Hoke is gonna putz around with the lineup for two more weeks?   Um, I don't think it's a lack of talent there, it's crappy coaching.

It's great to be a Buckeye folks!

Comment 11 Aug 2014

B Chick, I was thinking the exact same thing.  I can't imagine hugging that oversized hunk of pork.  Yeesh!  They obviously need more optometrists in that state.

Comment 08 Aug 2014

That's Bengals twitter link, too funny.  I do have to say if I'm a linebacker I'm thinking twice of wrapping him up for a tackle.  A new strategy?

Comment 07 Aug 2014

Umm, I agree with you too.  Ain't just the guys here!  The massage idea was brilliant.

Comment 06 Aug 2014

How did TTUN not make this chart?  Oh, that's right. It's 3:30pm PDT and they still suck.

Where are all those SEC schools?  Shouldn't they be on there, like 10 times?

Comment 06 Aug 2014

I completely agree with Johnnykozmo and I don't do those sites either.  I have 2 sister-in-laws who put on their facebook pages what they are eating each and every night, along with a dearth of other unimportant crap.  Then they wonder why I never see the perhaps important stuff that one SHOULD be posting like new baby pics etc.  I just can't wade through all the junk, I have a goddamn life people.

Comment 05 Aug 2014

Excellent point, M Man.  I was so PO'd when they fired Earle I left work for the day.  No amount of support will bring Waters back. 

And I still think the university had no choice after that investigation typed up the report but to fire him.  Consider the Title IX exposure and media blow up if they would have done otherwise.
