If 20% of the North American population knew who Messi was, I would agree with that. LeBron is just as big of a name in Asia and Europe as Messi's name. LeBron's name is known by practically everyone in the USA and Canada where as Messi is pretty unknown. It wasn't until I was in Vietnam before the world cup in May and there was a cardboard cut out in a shopping complex of standing of Messi where I learned who he was. I was there with a group of Brazilians who told me it was Messi. They knew who LeBron was and we talked about the NBA playoffs.

I know this is as close to what happened at Penn State as human rights are to North Korea but Ohio State fans defending Jon Waters is starting to look a lot like Penn State fans defending Joe Paterno. I thought Jon Waters did an exceptional job with the half-time shows the past two seasons but TBDBITL's dirty laundry is now being aired to the public and the University really has no other choice than to get new leadership.

About the same thing happened with the last Cheerleading coach... fired because of the actions of others.Failed to maintain control of the program. When there are allegations of a sexual nature within a group such as TBDBITL or cheerleading, the University needs to be strict about it.

Are the athlete's expected to shill for the sponsors: do M*ch*lin players have to deliver pizzas before or after their match?

Actually only after they graduate.

I missed the 2011 MSU game for a wedding. I was upset. My wife and I were married earlier that August and this couple, although invited, didn't go to our wedding. I tried to convince my wife we didn't need to go because they didn't go to ours. She made the excuse for them that our wedding was a destination wedding and they had a new born (hence why they were getting married.. too bad it wasn't before the baby) and we couldn't expect them to make it.

In the end we woke up early that fall Saturday in Columbus, tuned into 97.1, and drove up I-71 to Cleveland. Then I watched on the Gamecast updates on the iPhone the inept Jim Bollman offense do nothing during the ceremony. 

I wouldn't talk to this couple if I had missed a memorable game.

That NYT article needs to do some fact checking. The last paragraph

“I guess that’s why June became the traditional bride’s month,” Keating said. “No significant sporting events.”

Ummm... Stanley Cup finals, NBA Finals? July and early August is when you get married.
And why do so many women want to get married in the fall? There is nothing about the fall that makes it sound like a good wedding time. Unless you're excited about the possibility of gray skies and rain (which is awesome for football).

Acceptable events to miss a game over: funerals (because you can't control that) and birth of your children (because when you're getting busy with the wife in Dec/Jan/Feb/March you're not thinking 9 months from then). I had my first child last September and missed the Cal game.

Up-voted you on getting rid of 'noon games.

Now onto Buck-I-Guy and Buckeye Man and Big Nut. Have you ever sat by any of them at a game? If so you should understand the hatred. I had a few seasons in 28AA behind Buckeye Man or whatever and he's not even watching most the game. More concerned with taking pictures. Big Nut is probably the least evil of the 3 listed. Buck-I-Guy is the worst.

If beer comes to Ohio Stadium, I'm sure it will like $6 or $7 for a 12oz Bud Light. I can live without beer being sold in the 'Shoe because I'll do my drinking before and/or after the game and buy a 6 pack for the price of 1.5 beers inside the 'Shoe.

1. Wi-fi
2. move students to AA along the East side of the stadium. Put the noise behind the visitor's bench. 
3. I sat in like 15C or 13C in the back of the section for The Game in 2012. That was the most obstructed view ever. Put a damn video screen on the wall of the pressbox so fans can see what's going on when the ball is on the South side of the 50. Was able to move to another seat thankfully to see the game. Can't believe they even sell tickets for those seats. Or make this a visitor's section.

Here's a lame one my former employer did,

Got rid of cups at the water cooler. If you wanted a cup of water, well bring a cup from home. And if you had a visitor who wanted water... tell him to go the store across the street and buy a cup.

Only problem I have with my Chromecast is that it needs to stream from computer/phone/tablet. Sometimes when I'm on my couch, I'm too lazy to stream from my computer. Also I have Chrome crash on me at times.

Comment 19 Jul 2014

I bought a Roku first... returned it and then bought an AppleTV. I have an AppleTV and Chromecast on my other TV. I love the AppleTV

Wait... is this D-Zone website for real? People actually puts stock in their journalistic integrity? When I opened the site, I had a flashback to 1997 and surfing the web.

Good food on campus/near campus? Don't take him to BW3s please!

Pizza: Adriatico's, Hound dogs

Breakfast: Hang Over Easy

I've grown up and haven't been around campus much and matured to Short North/Downtown for great food.

Do you think it's a coincidence that Dave Biddle and DoucheBag sound so similiar?

Comment 17 Jul 2014

I'm assuming that's Christian Bryant in the middle. He looks like he's 14 in that picture... he should enroll under a different name and no one will ever know he's old enough to have graduated from college.

Comment 15 Jul 2014

This guy is partially right... we are looking at the SEC and 'Bama in particular as a measuring stick. Ohio State wants to be the best and - I feel like a professional wrestler saying this - to be the best you have to beat the best. Beating a team that lost to Toledo, Appalachian State, etc. is not how you prove you're the best.

But Ohio State fans hating M*ch*g*n more than M*ch*g*n fans hating Ohio State is entirely untrue. I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. Toledo is split 45/45/10 between Ohio State, M*ch*g*n, and other. Living there I also spent time in that state up north. I know a ton of M*ch*g*n fans and hell I'm friends with a lot of them as well. They're good people and they're no different than we are in terms of their love for their team and the hatred they have for their rivals (only difference I guess Ohio State fans root for a great university with an exceptional football team).

You hear all their horror stories about traveling to the 'Shoe - I've been to The Game every time it's been at the 'Shoe since 2000 ('00, '02, '04, '06, '08, '10, and '12) so that is 7 games. I have never witnessed anything terrible... the worst I saw was the typical verbal boos or "F*** M*ch*g*n" or maybe a personal insult (all stuff I've experienced myself when I went to The Game in Ann Arbor in '07 and '09). These bags of piss, batteries, fights, whatever crap they're coming up with - never witnessed it and I would say I have a large sample size to compare it to. And I don't isolate myself on Gamedays - I've been all over campus, all over tailgating areas, all over the Stadium, and around Columbus post-game. There are probably isolated incidents where some fans took things a little too far but you'll have that with those fans in Ann Arbor as well.

Comment 21 Apr 2014

Ray Small is the biggest traitor in Ohio State to the Ohio State program.

I haven't had time to browse /r/cfb lately - Are M*ch*g*n fans still crying about Justin Boren?.... and is water still wet?
