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 once neglected to get gas in my Pilot in WV while driving with the wife and kids at night in the mountains. Figured I'd get it down the road since I had a quarter tank. After driving 54 miles with the fuel light on and no gas stations open after 10:00pm, and a wife letting you know every mile how unhappy she is about it, I know of the stress you speak DJ. I did learn that you can buy porn and alcohol after 10 at every exit but that most gas stations are not open late in WV.

You may have missed the best part of this if you didn't look at DJ's Mom Post history.

DJ, if this really is your Mom, enjoy her as much as you can for there will come a day when you wish you still had her around to ride your ass and wish you a happy birthday.

I would think the great disturbance in the Force would have occurred in other games where decent special team's play was more lacking. I can see Tress having an Obi-Wan moment though last night and appearing to Johnston (or even Clinton) to help them. I bet Tressel probably walks around his house in Jedi robes and is bad-ass with a light saber.

Johnstown OH native then on to TOSU, class of 96.  I'm the 4th generation of my family to graduate from Ohio State. Now a Marysville Monarch.

I think this says a lot about the sender and also think it was a very classy move by Devin last Saturday. Now how our luck goes, this will probably end up being an NCAA violation or something.

Maybe it is about the degree and where it comes from. A degree from The Ohio State University plus former Ohio State football player would look really good on a professional resume. Football is supposed to be the means to an end for the majority of these guys. Maybe these two are just ready to move on with the next phase of their lives.

Thanks for doing the math! So if we count one of the ties as a win as Gordon Gee said, we're up even one more. But I was at that game and it definitely was NOT a win. My son is 11-1 and my twin daughters are 7-1.

I believe I was at this spring game as it was the first one I ever saw. I remember one play where Kirk ran backwards to avoid pressure and then went east and west before actually advancing again for either a no-gain or perhaps minor gain. However he probably ran 50-60 yards on that play. It was an exciting play.

Young team and they're winning. Could be better, yes but also could be worse. I prefer to enjoy what we have.

When I see Obie, I think of the annoying guy from college who was in classes with me at OSU and was a jerk. We used to remind Obie in our Sociology classes that he was a walk-on not a star and ask how it felt to get shot in the ass in that bar. Unfortunately girls flocked to him because of the whole football thing.

Each week I skip to Jim Tressel's Least Favorite Moment of the Game before I read the whole article. Tressel is almost revered now like Woody was/is and even though this is satire, I can very much picture him doing all of the activities he is listed as doing. I would add that while working on his HMS Bounty model, he was probably wearing a Captain Bligh hat and perfecting his British accent.
