  • 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.

I have only hoped TTUN would win one game ever and that was LLLLLLLoyd Carr's last game and it was only because they played Florida who is an easy #2 on my list of schools I hate.  Can't say I worked up much enthusiasm for that game though.

I'd be giddy if Appy St won again because Ann Arbor will burn to the ground that night.  Dave Brandon will need the SWAT team to protect him.

What's more important to me is that Sparty and Wisky win THEIR games.  Those games are of relevance.

28 - 27 Buckeyes   Not that I'm a pessimist, but too many scores are taken.  I also think we have a lot of unanswered questions so this could  happen.  Hope not.

M Man I have said this for the last 10 years.  For whatever reason, tattoos became popular out here far earlier than in the Midwest.  I  have had many conversations with 20yr olds and I ask them if they have ever seen a good looking tattoo that's 20yrs old or more?  Well they haven't because they don't exist.  Call me an old fogey but these people with tons of "body art" are all going to regret it as their tats turn to muted hell blotches as they age.

Comment 27 Aug 2014

Just like TTUN's problems last year (and this year?  Hello Offensive line?) are clearly all Rich Rod's fault not Hoke's.  Nevermind that Hokes best record came with the highest number of Rich Rod players.

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.

Comment 22 Aug 2014

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.

Comment 20 Aug 2014

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.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

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".

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