^ A thousand times this. Fickell is an old-school, salt-of-the-earth guy. In his brief talk at the championship ceremony on Saturday, it was all about the seniors. Glad he is on our side.
I would like to see DJ cover the following topics in his next Skull Session:
- Baby seal clubbing
- The Holocaust
.....sprinkled liberally with Warren Harding, our Lord and Savior. Get the pitchforks out everybody! Mob justice will be served!!!!
RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE RABBLE!!!!!

"Sports journalism should be about the subject matter, not the author."
Welcome to The Internet, circa 2013. If you want to turn back the clock to old school sports journalism:
- Go pick up a hard copy of The Sporting News at your local Waldenbooks bookstore
- On your way home, stop at the local five and dime for a bag of Werther's Originals
- Sit in your leather reading chair
This is what ruins the internet, and this is why we can't have good things: the level of fake outrage, and the pack mentality that follows.
Most of the haters aren't really offended, they just want to be.
DJ, keep doing what you're doing.
DJ posts interesting content, and has an original voice. Which is hard to find in the sea of mediocre world of college football journalism.
The people on here who get offended by his posts need to step away from the keyboard and go outside for a bit, lest they fall into that rabbit hole of internet rage.
+1. Calm down people.
First, thank you for your service. I mean this in no disrespectful way, but don't be like Walter Sobchak from the Big Lebowski. DJ's joke was not "on" American servicemen. The joke was "on" people who get too easily offended by what he writes.
It also blows my mind that our offensive coaching staff thought it was better to start Joe Bauserman over Braxton Miller.
Even though Miller was just a freshman, it was clear early on that Bauserman had no ceiling whatsoever.
Here are a couple of JB's lines from that season:
OSU at. Miami
-13 passing yards total
-QB Rating 22.1
OSU at Nebraska
-13 passing yards total
-QB Rating 0.90 (yes, you read that correctly....the rating is less than 1.00)
My thoughts exactly.
Moderators, I like free speech and all, but please feel free to moderate.
There are some comments coming from the mouth-breathing section of OSU fandom that essentially proclaim "she was asking for it."
BCast on OZone said one of the three was a potential recruit that didn't sign with the Buckeyes.
3. Unknown recruit that visited that weekend, but didn't sign with OSU (I bet a Google search could narrow this list down)
I am ashamed of some of these comments. This board is veering a little to the side of "she was asking for it."
Take of your scarlet glasses, folks.
Please, Buckeye Fans,
Refrain from making comments about this girl, like why was she out that late, why did she go home with this player, and so forth. There are already some comments of this ilk already posted.
It makes us look like ND fans.
Don't do it.
DON'T. DO. IT.
"I actually think Winfield's case the weakest of the four, but think he's still solidly on rushmore."
I have to disagree here - people have forgotten who good he was. IIRC, Winfield weighed something like 180 pounds, but absolutely destroyed folks. The best CB I have ever seen in run support, at any level of football. If you rewatch the '97 Michigan game, he was a monster in that game, and neutralized Charles Woodson when they were matched up.
I always loved Malcolm Jenkins, because he was a poor man's version of Antoine Winfield, if that makes sense. Winfield is as solid as anybody on the mountain.
You are right on Jake - just like how Billy Price is supposed to be the John Simon 2.0.
Have I told you how much John Simon reminds me of a Mike Vrabel 2.0?
Damn Brutus - you had us there. Well struck.
Please don't do that ever again.
