I'm looking for a statement game this weekend. Need to hit the gas from the opening kick and have them crying about Urban running up the score in the 4th.

I'd be thrilled to see the Bucks force 3-5 turnovers this game and would not be surprised if it happens. Their defense is nowhere near the caliber of Wisconsin and it shouldn't be an issue to gash them all night.

Gotta admit I was very nervous about facing the Badgers at Camp Randall. Happy Valley? Not so much. Feeling very confident this week.

I still remember watching Malcolm Jenkins jump around like we were up 59-0. I knew right then that we were walking away with the victory. Thankfully, we have some guys ready to strap up and do his legacy justice. Wisconsin will be just another notch under Hooker's belt, which is how they end most of their weekends in that God forsaken place anyway.

Go Bucks.

We don't love them hoes, but we do love us one hell of a Hooker.

I'll show myself out. BUT FIRST:

As I sat drunkenly on the back patio of a Buffalo Wild Wings near the end of Indiana's last breath, I made an off-hand remark that I would still like to see Hooker get his INT. The pick six that ensued on the very next play, literally seconds after my comment, made this kid my favorite Buckeye for the foreseeable future.

No, I didn't see a flag. Didn't happen. Get Dumped Then, Refs.

I love JT, but I also remember Joey Bosa walking over to him after the PSU game and saying "You're welcome, bitch." -- so I feel like Cardale has earned the right to have Bosa come over and say the same to him if he should happen to have a bad performance in a few games. I firmly believe the offense will start clicking, no matter who starts.

Strange, I'm seeing a chance of a few showers around Noon and not much else. Just stepped out and the rain has started again. Power went out briefly last night. For the record, the down vote didn't come from me. Cheers!

Reporting from Columbus, about a block from Lane Ave, we're looking at absolutely perfect football weather today. All the rain came through last night to give way to what should be a glorious home opener.

Also note that the lone Hawaiian spotted was not pleased with our wind chill factor. Bundled like a newborn.

I don't know what it was about this game, but I just felt calm the whole way through. Even when the four turnovers came, I did not get bent out of shape. This was a truly great football team. I think the way they came back and dominated against Bama silenced pretty much all of my fears. I let my emotions get the best of me during the Sugar Bowl. I wanted that win more than just about anything and I fully believed there was no way one superhero from Oregon was going to stand in their way after knocking the SEC giant off of its tower.

So, I will not just cherish this National Championship, but the entire run leading up to it. That's what made it incredibly special to me. They fought against all odds and naysayers to accomplish what could only be done by believing in each other. What we witnessed was a family putting it all on the line. Not just a team, but brothers. They honestly love one another and I will always remember that, no matter how special another season might seem.

Going to enjoy this one for the rest of my life.

This entire site is dedicated to following a group of young football players. The other day there was an article regarding Barrett's Twitter update on his scooter. I suppose you think that is beyond you, too? It's called having fun. That article has everything to do with bashing young people on Twitter as an adult and 0 to do with my exchange with Elliott. Feel free to read it in full yourself, because you obviously have no grasp on it whatsoever. 

Better yet, feel free to go check Ramzy's Twitter feed and see that it is filled with tweets about these players.

My tweet to Zeke was regarding him catching confetti after the Sugar Bowl game. I jokingly stated that I bet he couldn't catch two. I'm glad to report that he (along with hundreds of other Buckeye followers) got the joke. I'm sorry you didn't., but you are trying to take something and run with it when there is absolutely nothing there to run with.

I think you're confused about Ramzy's take on that. This is me being proud of these guys and everyone having fun, not taking shots at young kids on social media. Huge difference. Try not to be such a sour grape. 

Also, I'm a father, no one needs to teach me about the duties of being responsible regarding young people. Why don't you dig up a book on social graces, instead. =)

This is our guy. I love our guy. Our guy would risk his neck for the sake of others. Our guy is a leader, a teacher, a learner. Our guy is a man of great integrity, willpower, loyalty, and unshakable faith. This is why he will always be our Coach, and for many, our father figure and much more than an average man. For anyone who has doubts about his induction, you still have a long way to go in understanding what makes our guy a diamond in a mine filled with coal and the ability to see what makes a truly great human being.

Congrats, Coach! We're forever proud of you and stand by you in all that you do.
