That would be glorious, Jason! A few of the comments/commenters on the open thread made me ashamed to be a Buckeye. 

Comment 24 Aug 2015

I was a Buckeye fan long before I ever thought about matriculating at tOSU. I feel blessed because I had the opportunity to earn my undergrad in Columbus, but it wouldn't even cross my mind to feel superior to someone who's a Buckeye fan but didn't attend school there. My wife's a UC grad - and roots for the Buckeyes when they play each other (my Father-in-law was a huuuuuge OSU fan - he didn't even go to college)!

So, in answer to the question, Ytown, as far as this alum is concerned, anyone who roots for the good guys is part of the Buckeye family, whether they graduated from OSU or not. (Of course, as has been posted numerous times above, the mouth-breathers and player-stalkers and profit-seekers [Buck-I-Guy!] can look for another team to cheer on, as far as I'm concerned!)

When I first saw this on ESPN's news-crawl, my immediate thought was, "Soooooo glad Urban Meyer is our Head Coach." I couldn't even imagine him acting the fool like Sark.

What does that say about his discipline, his values, his ability to set a culture, his position as a role model for the young men under his tutelage? If the coach is that out-of-control, what are the expectations put on the players? I can see trouble ahead for the Trojans.

Woody (or anyone), where was the grotto in that picture located - Mirror Lake?

Also, wasn't 1890 the time frame when the Skunk Weasels' dominated CFB (such as it was - not counting the YMCA and high school teams they played)? It was close to the last time they were relevant, at any rate.

Dawn & Stacey Elliott, along with Annie Apple and a whole bunch of other Buckeye parents, are a big reason there's a family atmosphere around the team. 

Seeing that "85 Yards Through the Heart of the South" shirt she had on brought a big smile to my face!

Spot on, Gum. Herm didn't have the greatest success as an NFL HC, but I have no doubt he would play to win at tiddly winks.

I'm with you, Earle.

It's fun to posit a bunch of crazy-a$$ formations with 3 or 4 or 10 QBs on the field at the same time - but let's keep it simple: get the ball to our athletes in space, punch the D in the mouth with Zeke and the power running game, and enjoy an offense that could very well be the greatest in OSU history.

I know a lullaby that works wonders. It starts off, "Oh, come and sing Ohio's praise; and songs to alma mater raise..."

Too true, Oyster. She may be the best fighter, pound for pound, in the world right now.

Comment 06 Aug 2015

You make an excellent point, JK. My problem was never so much with the players (the Senator, IMO, was protecting his guys; and right or wrong, didn't make the best decisions), but with the NCAA and their byzantine rules/enforcement (or lack thereof). I often wonder if they (NCAA) would qualify for a RICO investigation.

Somebody tweet her DJ's address, quickly! Then we have to figure out who's gonna do the Skully each morning...

Comment 05 Aug 2015

DJ's friend may have already been punched one too many times.

Comment 05 Aug 2015

Ah, the good old days ... they used to let people smoke in the 'Shoe; of course, as students, we had our own hand rolled "herbal" smokes.
