  • SPORTS MOMENT: November 18th, 2006 - Hanging on to my student ticket when everyone around me was making hundreds of dollars by selling theirs. Attending the Game of the Century, #1 OSU versus #2 TSUN. Watching Troy Smith seal up the Heisman Trophy and the Buckeyes stamp their ticket to the National Title Game. Storming the field after a 42-39 victory and celebrating in the Shoe until the last few fans trickled out.

Distract him with a pretty lady and then fake kick him in the teeth?  Well, whatever works!

Comment 15 Dec 2014

This all sounds great, but I would imagine that Mullen will try to hang on to this guy if he heads to TSUN.

Cardale went through hell and high water to be a part of this team.  I see very little chance of him putting that aside to take a risk across the country.  He's got Buckeye Scarlet in his blood.

Comment 15 Dec 2014

My thoughts exactly.  I didn't write this post to entice the idea of a major player transferring.  But someone like Collier or even Burrow may not be hard to convince seeing that the heir-apparent is lined up already in Gibson.

That Man of Steel music gets me going, even when TBDBITL plays it on Saturdays.  Loved every second.

Oh, and if anyone is interested in a new wallpaper for their computers to accompany the Bucks CFP bid, check out this little diddy I put together.

I've been raving about this dude since National Letter of Intent day.  He was the very first buckeye to send his in, 7-something in the morning.  He didn't hesitate then and he hasn't hesitated since.  I knew right away he was going to be something special.

Note: I also "knew right away" that Mike The Abusement Park Mitchell would be something special also.  So I'm batting .500 right now.

Not Bad

I always thought the SEC, in particular Alabama, benefited immensely from having a month to steal their opponents game signals prepare for their opponent in the National Title Game.  Saban is a mastermind at Bill Belichick level cheating completely dissecting an opponent's film and preparing his team for said opponent, especially when he has multiple weeks to do so.  The Playoff will remove the lengthy period between games (speaking specifically of the NCG, of course) essentially removing that advantage.  I see this small detail as something that can truly level the field and make it much more difficult for Alabama and others to steal win multiple titles.

Also, love the avatar Buckeye3M.

I truly appreciate the compliment!  I actually have zero formal training in graphic design.  I don't even own any photo editing software.  I do all of my wallpapers through Power Point (I know, hard to believe) and essentially just do it as a hobby in my free time or when work becomes too boring.  I would be glad to give it a shot, though.  Maybe you could send me a quick project and I can design a few images for you?  No promises they will be as good what someone who is properly trained could create, but also no hard feelings if you're no longer interested.

I heard them use it and I liked it enough to steal it for the wallpaper.  Bonus if it makes the Bears/Frogs/Big 12 pissed.  :)

I agree, I've give Fickell a lot more props than most people it seems.











Comment 05 Dec 2014

This is such a difficult discussion because what some of these guys lack with on-the-field production is made up for in their recruiting.  Best example, Smith and Coombs.  They are rarely heralded for their game-plans or schemes but you very often see their names associated with recruits.

The one I would definitely have to put higher is Hinton though.  Heuerman didn't become the highest valued TE in the 2015 NFL draft all by himself.

Comment 05 Dec 2014

The mohawk may be inevitable.  Another thing that is inevitable: my father-in-law telling me "Don't worry, Ohio State will come away with a win.  They always do."

He says this during every close game and it only adds to my angst.
