  • 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.

Having lived in New Mexico eight years only 2 hours from Texas and having been in the oil business there with a bunch from Texas I think this poll is wrong.  I can't imagine the "ever'thin' is bigger and better in Tex-sus" crowd knew about the poll.  

They're worse than Yankee fans.

Be honest: If any of us at our place of employment looked the other way at any one of the worse things discovered to be going on we would be fired from our jobs.  The university had no choice.  This wasn't some isolated incident handled badly.

It is sad and unfortunate for everyone involved and I am certainly no prude but this clearly is way, way over the line.

I have known brides who held their weddings in CBus on football Saturdays and whether home or away game, had the nerve to complain about poor attendance.  If you seed the cloud, it will rain.

Also, I had a job a long time ago where management scheduled me to work during tOSU's bowl game.  I told them I would not be at work at that time and I told them why.  They said no, I needed to work then.  I quit.

Well Bert, he may HAVE an incredible one but you clearly ARE an incredible one with that comment.

Agreed, in fact, I never understood all the hate for his leaving.  This is very good news for tOSU.  I  hope he either stays clear of Johnny Moneyball or Johnny learns a thing or two from LBJ. 

When you think about it, it's sorta amazing that this guy who has had so, so much attention on him starting at such a young age has not done anything stupider than "the Decision" or "moving to a better city & team".   I just never understood the haters.  And that "decision" crap might well have been his agent's idea, we'll never know.

Not an NBA fan, but welcome home King.

If you want to read a very funny book, read Bill Geist's "The Big FIve -OH!".   His chapter on AARP is the funniest one in it.

He went to an AARP meeting and quickly figured out they didn't want anything from him except his money until he would turn 65.

Not only was Dublin a lot of farmland, but Canal Winchester was just a fire station, a speed trap, maybe an ice cream shop too and a very small rural school if I remember right.  I'm old enough to remember when German Village was run down and housing was some of the cheapest around.

How, oh HOW could you leave Mr. Ferentz off this list?  Tressel was never B1G COY!  Tsk, Tsk.

Welcome to Idaho!!!! Actually, I'm pretty sure this is the Going-to-the-sun-road in Glacier NF.  But once, directly in front of my house a snow plow actually got stuck in about 3' of snow.  The road grater had to come and pull him out.  It left a trench in the road they didn't fix for a week.

I have had to shovel my roof in 2 winters here.
