I'm a 1996 graduate of The Ohio State University. I am also a 4th generation alumnus and hope my kids carry on the tradition someday. I was in the North stands when Eddie George fumbled twice on the 1 yard line against Illinois and was a senior when he had redemption with his Heisman year.

I am in Orlando on vacation and have been wearing Undisputed or Ohio State gear almost every day. I've run into a lot of Alabama fans in lines at the Parks and they all basically look at my shirt and say "Ohio State fan huh?". Yes, yes I am and it feels pretty damn good to be the Champ. And feels pretty damn good that no one can take that away from us or talk trash about how the SEC is the best. By the way, I've heard a half dozen comments that they still can't believe they got beat by a 3rd string quarterback. 

Comment 25 Mar 2015

I did a vacation club spiel last year in Orlando with my wife and even wore a tee shirt I printed up that said "My favorite word is NO!" Even with that subtle hint, I had to say the word to three different guys about 20 times.

I'm not Internet Champion, but I was an unarmed security guard in college at Central Benefits on E Main. I worked 3rd shift and every night I'd rotate the roof camera over to my car and leave it on my car all night. Then if anyone approached it with bad intentions, I would get on the sound system and tell them to get away from my car and that police were on the way. Then I'd watch them run.

You know, I kept reading the comments and half-expected some dissenting opinion to be posted. Perhaps something from someone with a Michigan bias but it never happened. And then I remembered the news of the weekend. 

Comment 28 Feb 2015

Edited, never mind.

Comment 28 Feb 2015

Uh no. Did you even read my profile? I'm thinking you meant to use another font.  I actually went to the same high school as another one of our 11 W members in Johnstown OH and as said before, I am 4th generation OSU alumni. I have encountered many stupid people in my life and also many uneducated people. Stupid and uneducated are not the same no matter what some people may think. I don't agree with the content that MMAN posts but he is most definitely many things but uneducated he is not. If I had to guess, he probably has a JD as he writes like an attorney and as we all know, he likes to argue his points. So Groveport, plus 1 for you for your paranoia and for making me chuckle.

What the hell did he do on Mgoblog to get banned? I've never seen rats turn on themselves.

Comment 28 Feb 2015

And this post here is another example of why I'm intrigued to know who you really are (as expressed in the "get rid of you thread") Either you're full of it, which I really don't think you are, or you're likely well-off financially, have good connections to and within UM, and are definitely intelligent and educated. 

Comment 28 Feb 2015

I'd actually like to know his real story. He comes across as not only intelligent but also perhaps connected.  Much better than the rest of the UM fans I've met in my life who never went to that university.

Comment 23 Feb 2015

Used to be WC adjuster for  national TPA and am now in Account management for the same TPA.

Account Management in Client Services for a company in the insurance industry.

Comment 22 Feb 2015

That's crazy. . I kind of miss full serve stations especially on those nights when the wind chill is -15 below, but that's really it. Growing up in Johnstown, there used to be a BP station that was full serve and a buddy of mine worked there. I'd pull in and he'd come out and I'd say "$1 please and get all of the windows too". Pissed him off but the owner was watching so he had to do it. It was still funny after 20-30 times. 

Comment 19 Feb 2015

I wholeheartedly agree with your middle two paragraphs if you apply The Ohio State University to "Athletic Department" and "University" so there is the potential for a very minute piece of common ground to be reached.

By the way, if this was a movie ending and Brandon was the Director, we'd all be drinking free Coke and fireworks would be going off now.

Well, history is usually written by the Victors, but in this case the victorious ones are the Buckeyes so we'll just take these as facts.

Comment 19 Feb 2015

MMan, you keep coming here to try to prove your point or win an argument. You can't win quite simply because we don't care. If I saw you fall down the stairs, I'd make sure you're okay and then that would be the end of it. But if you fell down the stairs wearing a Michigan shirt, I'd still make sure you're okay but then I'd probably tell a lot of people later how hilarious it was that a Michigan fan fell down the stairs today. No, not really, but you get my point. You remind me of a neighbor I once had that was a Michigan fan. He always wanted to debate the comparisons between the two schools.and my response always was that I don't care anything about Michigan. I'm a 4th generation OSU alumnus, born and bred a Buckeye, hate Michigan with a passion, and I believe any argument about which school is better gets settled on the field each November. And right now we're winning that argument. 

Comment 19 Feb 2015

That would imply he's a shark which is too much of a compliment for a Michigan fan. It's more like putting out a bit of cheese in a trap for the vermin. 

Comment 19 Feb 2015

He charges in like a boar smashing through brush. Know he is coming from a mile away. Can't...resist...the...bait. Quick, someone mention free tickets for Coke.

I figured Harbaugh's big endorsement would be something befitting him, perhaps from Summer's Eve.
