While we are at it, can we please discuss the redesign of elevenwarriors dot com???

Outside of the requirements of playing B1G schools, what is the smallest stadium that tOSU has played in, especially in the non-confernce?  I'm having a hard time thinking of anything as small as Nippert.  With the demand/ability of our fans to travel, there is a lot of $$$ left on the table playing in a 30-40k capacity stadium.

I believe the rumor mill was saying KJ Hill had some academic "things" going on, but I don't believe it was ever stated that he had specific academic qualifications to meet prior to admission.

Grounds for a real life de-friending.

I could sit and watch the original "Supermarket Sweep" for hours.  Something about it was addictive.  Also, yelling at the screen while some guy couldn't find the specially marked mayo right in front of his face was pretty amusing.

I think there is a certain bravado that is almost a pre-requisite for being a fighter at a high level.  You have to go out there and fully believe you are the best in the ring/cage at all times.  If you walk into a fight with any self-doubt, you are already toast.  I have no problem with top end fighters being cocky - they got there for a reason.

UK's worst tenure in the last decade or so came from 2005-2009 wherein they lost double digit games in the last 2 years of Tubby's tenure and the 2 years of the Billy Gillispie experiment.  During those 4 years, their best overall finish was the 2nd round of the NCAA tournament. A loss in the NIT was mixed in there was well - 84-52 (.617) overall record for a 4 year stretch.

Thad has lost 91 games in 11 seasons at this point. Unless the Buckeyes win the B1G tournament, they are guaranteed a season with at least 10 losses - 11 being likely. If that is the case, then the conclusion of this season will give Thad his "worst" 4 year stretch as a head coach at Ohio State - potentially 109-36 (.751).  Yes, we aren't consistently a top 5 team, but there is still a NCAA Runner-up, a Final Four, 2 Sweet Sixteens, and an Elite 8 in 11 postseason eligible seasons.

I share your sentiment.  Somehow, my door punching came hours after the game.  My wife (GF at the time) was working at Hineygate, so I just sat in the stadium for about 40 minutes after the game ended.  I meandered my way over to Hineygate and posted up at the bar in the Holiday Inn waiting for her to finish up.  I was fairly calm, but started talked to a guy who had traveled in from North Carolina.  He went on this whole rant about how he spends all this money to come up for 1 game a year, and our drunken conversation soon spiraled into rage once again.  I used some terribly miniscule thing to start a fight with my girlfriend and told her I was walking home.  I lived in Olentangy Commons, which is a 5 mile walk. I stumbled down Oletangy River Rd in the dark.  Not sure how long it took me, but by the time I got home, my girlfriend was eating Donato's with her friend and that (and the 3 offensive plays run in the entire 4th quarter) sent me over the edge.  Damn you, Juice Williams.

For fully personal reasons, I'd change the 07 Illinois/Juice Williams game.  It has nothing to do with Buckeye history and how the team would be perceived, but because I was still so young and idiotic (drunk).  I punched a hole in a door in my apartment and almost ruined my relationship with my then girlfriend (now wife).  It made for a very tumultuous few months and I had to do a lot of repair, both physical and emotional.

There was a silver lining though.  Blowing up at that loss as a 24 year old really changed the way I  approached my fanhood.  Since then, I've had much more emotional control over how I view this program and where the games really rank in the grand scheme of life.  One less person to start a "Fire Fickell" thread at midnight in the fall.

Dog's mouth looks an AWFUL lot like the uniform manufacturer's logo.  Just sayin'.

Comment 18 Feb 2015

Every home game from 2002-2008 as an undergrad and grad student, including all the games prior to school being in session. Penn State and Michigan away games in 2005. Bauserman debut in 2011. Home against Cal in 2012. B1G Championship loss in 2013. Home against UC this last season. I believe the only home losses I've seen in person were Texas in 05, and that stupid Juice Williams game in 07. So...somewhere in the neighborhood of 62 games.

I live in Kentucky and I take offense to this.  Only 40-50% of people at the max, have relations with their siblings.  Geez, read a book.
