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.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching my son, age 8, make a running shoe-string catch at third base to seal a win and the entire rest of the infield jumping in the air to celebrate the catch.
  • NFL TEAM: Bengals - I love lost causes.
  • MLB TEAM: Reds
  • SOCCER TEAM: Any team my son plays on.

That's awesome! Those other folks who came prepared to race should be embarrassed. This reminds me of a time when I was a kid and the dads on our baseball team raced after a game about 40 to 50 yards. My farmer father, all 315 lbs of him wearing his jeans, work boots, white tee shirt and Pioneer hat beat everyone after coming to my game straight from the field. I thought he was going to have a heart attack afterwards though.

For Christs sake will you cover yourself? That line and scene cracked me up as a kid.

As the father of twin 12 year old girls, I'm going to take this advice to heart. Very well said!

Cincy, my first cousin from Moline had a chance to come to OSU on a full ride and be essentially debt free when she graduated. She took a partial scholarship to NU instead and graduated in 4 years but still over $200,000 in debt. I never understood why she did it other than NU was a better name. Her parents and both sets of grandparents graduated from OSU. Her major wasn't anything special either. Still blows my mind 20 years later.

If he stays, I hope next season is as successful and injury free as this past one. He deserves to get paid and would make a lot going in now. If he stays, I hope he gets an insurance policy for protection.

I got a ticket July 4th in the same zone at midnight in the rain. Entire family in the car and was doing 60 in a 45. Had been driving for 3 hours and just wanted to get home. Trooper still gave me the ticket but didn't mark it work zone. I paid the fine.

I never thought ADHD was a real thing until I had my son and experienced his problems with focus and hyperactivity. He's 14 now but wow it's been a long journey to this point. Please don't lump people with medical diagnoses into the same bucket as Grayson Allen.

You know, I've read several books about Woody Hayes and this sounds like a story one of his former players would tell about their recruitment. If Urban were to land DPJ, this would be legendary. It would be retold as "I was all set to go to Michigan until Urban Meyer drove in a severe snow storm to visit me and convinced me to not make one of the biggest mistakes in my life."
