We played them my sophomore year (94) and they had a lightning fast kid that pretty much beat us by himself.  I think his name was Denver Williams, but my memory may be failing me.

To be honest, I've never gone to a bar to watch a Buckeye game.  I don't like being distracted so 9/10 times I'm on my couch watching by myself lol.  There is a bar that just opened a few months ago in Gallatin called Chubbs and the owner is a Buckeye fan.  I met him in Kroger and he saw my Buckeye shirt and came and talked to me and told me to come out and watch a game.  I've been there a few times (just not for a game) and the food is pretty good and they have a decent variety of beers.  Maybe we could meet there one Saturday.

We don't live far from each other.  I'm in Gallatin.  

I play golf with a guy that coached at Beech when Hurd was there.  I haven't talked to him about Hurd lately, but a few years ago he said Hurd was a pretty level headed kid.  

A friend of mine, whose boss has some inside info (yeah, take it with a grain of salt) said that Hurd was an outsider among his teammates and didn't have any friends on the team.  Said that he got a little too big for his britches and pissed his teammates off.

Either way, it doesn't matter to me.  I feel for some of my friends that are UT fans that their season fell apart, but deep inside, I'm wearing a permanent smirk for all the shit I've taken over the years for being a Buckeye fan!

I agree.  That was a terrible idea not just to climb the tower without fall protection, but also to broadcast it.  I've been in the industry since '02 and back then it wouldn't have been such a big deal, but now there is a much bigger spotlight on tower safety and liablilty.  I was young and dumb when I first started and climbing up there like those guys wouldn't have bothered me in the least bit.  Now I'm older and wiser and you would never catch me up there without my harness and safety equipment.

I grew up in Ohio in the 80s and early 90s before moving to Tennessee.  I had always loved college football, but was never a die hard fan of one school.  I liked Ohio St, Penn St, Pitt, Georgia, Auburn, Florida St, and USC for a variety of different reasons, but my one true football love was the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Even after I moved to TN, I still didn't latch on to one college team, I just enjoyed all the games regardless of who played.  The 2002 season is what turned me into the Buckeye fan I am today.  My best friend from Ohio had started working for a company not far from where I lived and I ended up getting a job with him.  We traveled all over the place doing construction work and he and I practically lived together from one hotel to the next.  He is a huge Buckeye fan and we watched almost every game that season.  I'll never forget us watching the NC game in a crappy Pensacola, FL hotel room jumping up and down on the rock hard beds and shouting and being about as happy as we'd ever been!  Ever since then the Buckeyes have been my #1 team (even taking the place of my beloved Steelers)!  

I am so excited for this season to start!  I think I say that every year, but I just can't wait to see what this group of unproven talent can do.  

Also, this Saturday I get to watch my first game with my newborn son  and although he will not remember it, I will for the rest of my life!

Go Bucks!

I was born in Salem, too.  Lived my first 17 years in Columbiana County (East Palestine, Columbiana, Hanoverton).  Been to the Rogers Sale many times!  Moved to Tennessee during high school and have been here ever since (20 years).  Grew up a Pittsburgh sports fan, but have kept the Buckeyes as my #1 team!

Spot on, Ramzy!  These things need to be said more often!
