  • 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.

Wasn't the hardest hit in that game when Washington flattened somebody in the backfield or am I thinking of the 'Bama game?  Welcome to big time college football.

Yeah I'd say it's stranger. I mean he could have had chapped lips.  I suppose one would have to know what was going on on the field to judge.  The Michigan coach is calling a play, well, what the hell play WOULD THAT BE?

This is all about money which both sides (NFL & CFP) want.  They will not go up against each other as that is a sure lose-lose.  It's more about ESPN.

(@Grove: My thoughts too.) 

@Drew: Like whatever music you want.  You're obviously not alone or they would be obscure.

I'm a firm believer in that we have limited control in what we are attracted to and I mean that on a whole lot of levels.  But, you control how you react to that attraction.  Luckily for me, Buckeye football is one of my addictions and right now I'm 24/7 buzzed on it.  DJ/Warren Jr.  would have a more descriptive comment but that's why he is paid staff and I do tech support for a living.

You have to latch on to the positives in life.

LOL "he shouldn't have walked out on his mamma".

I have replayed about 4x when Tyvis interrupts Cardale's interview on the field after the Champ win when he says "Son, I'm so proud of you" it's hilarious. DJ is right, if they weren't at tOSU they would make a great reality show.  And mind you,  I hate and never watch reality shows but I'd tune that one in.

Like ANY other business, the further you are in the hierarchy, the higher your bonus.  Not surprised Gene's bonus is more and no the man isn't perfect but he's an excellent AD.  Nothing to see here except that weird $14 differential... WTF?

I wouldn't insult anyone enough to compare them to 0-4 Mike Hart.  In addition to his mouthing off about us, don't forget he was the inventor of the "Little Brother" meme.  What an ass hat. 

Tyvis is my favorite Buckeye.  He's just relishing what everyone else has already pointed out.  Those 3 heisman finalists all knew that fact while Urban was raising that trophy.

 I thought the "oo oo pick me" was the funniest tweet.

Fido, another correction:

There.  Now everyone is happy.

I think Harbaugh turns TTUN around quickly, at least this year, which is part of the reason why I think MSU is the biggest challenge.  I worry if "our rival" is looking good in November, say with only a couple of losses, there will be a tendency to look a bit past Sparty because it's a home game.  The other worry is that Conner Cook is a very good quarterback. 

Historically, the home field isn't the huge advantage it usually is in "the game".

BBQ chips?  Hummm, I'll try that sometime.  I'm starting to think we need a thread on "Weird stuff put on my Peanut Butter sandwich".  Pickles & mustard?  I like both but that sounds terrible.

Supporting both sides, I like both smooth and crunchy peanut butter, but crunchy is better.

Speaking of potato chips, I like to dip mine in ketchup  or mustard.  If you like ketchup on your fries, you'll love it with chips.

.....This is going to be a really long off season......

I don't understand why the NFL (via refs) don't provide the balls.  Having teams bring their own just opens things up to shenanigans like this.  MLB has the umpires supply the balls, which are regularly re-checked by them during the game.
