Don't forget that Braxton graduates in December.  He would be able to transfer to any school that wants him without a waiting period.  If he wants to get to the pros, he could pick from among several schools that would be happy to have him and put him in position to showcase his talents.  Didn't Russell Wilson do that by transferring to Wisconsin with one year of eligibility left?  (Note:  I don't want him to go, but think he deserves to make the decision that's best for him and his family.)

Make that Karl Strauss, not Carl.  1157 Columbia Street.  Just a couple of blocks from the Gas Light District, and the aircraft carrier Midway..

I once watched a Buckeye game at the Carl Strauss Brewing Co.  It's in downtown in San Diego.  Great food and good beer.  That was the year (1997) Illinois won and some of the big ten refs got fired at the end of the season.  

On second thought, maybe you shouldn't go there and jinx us.

Sometimes I wish the quarterback whisperer would spend a few minutes teaching Braxton to slide feet first when he's in the middle of the field and defenders are closing in.  Especially when he already has a first down.  Four more plays and no injuries.  Even pro quarterbacks slide once in a while.

Roby didn't seem to be playing at the same level last season that he did the year before.  Whether it was due to coaching, injuries, attitude and determination, or playing to avoid injury are all at question.  We'll find out what the NFL scouts think on draft day.  If it's coaching, he'll be drafted early.  If it was attitude (and off field problems), we'll see a drop.

If you want to play the PS3 version of Black Ops 2 with me sometime, send a friend request to oh_dad55.  My clan tag is OSU.

Hmm.  I'm seeing ads for Masters Degrees.  Must be because I was looking at those photos from the Smithsonian Contest.  Brilliant photography!

I used to play Golden Eye in paintball mode all the time.  May have to dig it out and play again.  

I've been spoiled by all the Call of Duty games.  Been getting shot up pretty badly on-line in Ghosts.

The spring game used to be viewed as an opportunity for families, and those who couldn't afford to come to a regular game, to participate in the buckeye experience.  It's a shame costs continue to rise so much that those who would appreciate the chance to see their beloved team can no longer afford to do so, even for a practice game.
