Well written Ramzy. That was tough to read and had to be even tougher to write.

This thread made me think of my first time in the Shoe. What an experience for a first-timer!
Too funny. The fan additions are priceless.
Saturday's bong hit: does it come before I put on my favorite buckeye shirt, after I set the DVR.....much confusion here. Please update timeline immediately.
Football legend or not, you never put your hands on someone else's kid. If the kid was in high school/college, it's a different story. If my kid was in peewee football and a grown man put his hands on him without my permission, are you kidding me? He'd have a serious problem.
Big loss for Matta. Lot's of drama with those Mitchells. If Mickey eventually signs with a FL or KY or KS, I will not be wishing him the best.
I agree that the expectations for this season are overly optimistic. Three to four losses sounds about right. Losing our OL, El Guapo, Shazier, an unknown (porous) pass D returning......yikes.
IMO, this was a rebuilding year even with a "healthy" Miller. Without him, it's rebuildier.
So sorry to hear about your dog. I had to put down my cat last week. He was 24. He was in amazing shape for his age but his kidneys just wore out. Hang in there. Let me know if you want to grab a drink (or twenty) to kill the pain.
Love Weller! We can't get it in Ohio.
I'm not seeing Ezra Brooks/Old Ezra. Am I missing it in the link?
I just watched the clip of Bert from SEC Media Days. A few observations--first of all, he looks uncomfortable, out of breath, talking too fast. He uses "we" interchangeably when referring to Arkansas and Wisconsin, in the present tense. He will never be confused with a scholar, but few coaches are. His sense of humor is kind of mean-spirited. He is the epitome of the Midwestern, arrogant jock-coach.
In my opinion, he's still inherently unlikeable. Has to be a bitch recruiting with that personality. Or maybe not. Maybe some players respond to him. He has the toughest job in the toughest conference and he very well may lose all of his SEC games again this year. I would feel a little sorry for him if he wasn't so smarmy. The guy has to have some talent for Alvarez to hire him and keep him. Guess we will find out this season.
This is an obvious hit-piece on Urbs and Buckeye fans in general. So Michigan dude is positing that we want the win more? We hate more? I would argue the exact opposite. UM has been and will continue to be in disarray. The rivalry is not as strong from both sides because of our consistent dominance over the past several years and the meltdown of a once dominant program.
At this point, I hope he resigns with the Heat. Chaos. Cleveland fans will be forced to buy another James jersey just to burn it. Better yet, Dan Gilbert holds a press conference and tells the world that he cannot welcome Lebron back, then introduces Melo in a Cavs jersey.
I just hope we can restore order to the universe quickly and everyone in Cleveburg can get back to hating themselves.
97.1 just reported from a "source" that Bath police have been notified to increase security for (positive) announcement, coming soon. Certainly looks bullish for Cleveburg at this point.
My band is playing the Offramp stage tomorrow (Friday) at 6:30 PM. Band: Zuck's Turkey Farm, twisted, fast funk/punk. I play drums. Hope to see some of the 11W's!
The surgeon had recauterized my leaky left tonsil pillar and for good measure decided to cauterize just about everything else while he was in there, like a drunk Ghostbuster wildly zapping everything that looked suspect.
This is why you are great! Ramzys The Great!
