Joe has lived most of his life in Central Ohio, and at an early age he watched Archie Griffin run 30 yards for a touchdown to beat That School Up North. At that moment, a love for Ohio State football was born and was nurtured with many trips to the 'Shoe to watch the Buckeyes play. He is a 1989 graduate of OSU and still lives in the area with his wife and seven children.

And let's not forget this epic pronouncement from Dennis Dodd after the Miller injury IN AUGUST!

No Braxton means no playoff. It doesn't do wonders for the Big Ten's rep and schedule strength, either.

Big name, big talk, big mistake. #B1G

I vaguely remember seeing a few episodes in syndication here in the U.S. when I was a little kid.  But it was enough to make me fascinated with all of the high-tech stuff they had.  I rediscovered the show on YouTube a few years ago and then finally got the DVD set.  It's still a great show even today.

I don't get a lot of sleep but thanks to my new workout regime I don't need as much.  The kids are all doing well.  The 11-year old boy and 13-year old girl are off to horse camp this week so that will bring a bit of peace but also take away two of our helpers.  The baby is 10 months old now and almost walking.  Life is good.

I always try to read the Skully if I have time, and I keep up on the recruiting stuff. I don't comment much anymore but I'm still lurking out here.

You can order an authentic Buffalo weck sandwich pack and have it shipped right to old Columbus town!

As a Bengals fan, one of my biggest draft-day headaches came when Mike Brown and company did NOT pick a Buckeye -- in this case Chris Gamble. They desperately needed a good cover corner, but inexplicably they chose RB Chris Perry from TSUN. We all know how that worked out. The Panthers then took Gamble only two picks later. SMH

13 photos of BB King performing at Hard Rock Live...

I saw BB King and Bo Diddley live at the Newport back in 1985. It was a pretty good show. ;)

I'll be lurking around here and there and I might even drop the occasional comment.

Iowa just won't be there yet in my opinion

Iowa won 8 games last year, played LSU very competitively (not to mention a strong performance in the Shoe), and they get all of their best players back. Add to that a schedule that's so light a strong breeze would blow it away. They could easily be 10-0 when Wisconsin rolls into Iowa City.

Also while Penn State is on the upswing and I believe they end up as the number 2 behind us in the B1G pecking order I think its going to take longer than one off season for Franklin to get fully seated in his Nittany Lion throne.

You may be right, and admittedly PSU was young and inconsistent last season. But they closed the season by beating a really good Wisconsin team on the road, and they'll have that "us against the world" attitude for one more season due to probation. New coaches can work motivational miracles with that sort of situation.

Plus, you know, seven win Sark.

Haha...yes that was exactly my point. If USC repeats or betters last year, I think you're right that the Pac-12 is #2 again. But if Seven Win Sark does his usual thing, then they'll fall out of the top 25 and end up similar to what Michigan was last year. I personally think Arizona and ASU hit their peak last year and are both due for a down year, and Stanford surely will struggle against that schedule. But yeah, Washington and UCLA are programs on the rise. Look out for them.

That 1970 title is disputed because OSU lost to Stanford in the Rose Bowl and AP named Nebraska #1.  Had they held on to defeat Stanford the Bucks would certainly have won it all, but they choked it away in the 4th quarter.
