This has been huge news here in the 419 - Reagan was an Anthony Wayne HS (suburban Toledo) grad; her funeral is in a Maumee. 

One of her recent tweets (on phone, can't link) said how her dad had sent her sample frames for her OSU diploma. It made her "tear up a little". That tweet made me cry. 

RIP child. May God give your family & friends comfort and peace that passes understanding.

Great article! We are truly blessed at tOSU to have such quality student-athletes. Of course the revenue sports get more attention, but we sometimes forget that these other kids have the same type of grind - classes, practices, conditioning, games/matches, travel... Good luck, Francesca! Another Buckeye national champion.

That wasn't even close to the most ridiculous thing I've written...

I literally barked out a laugh - well played DJ. 

Totally agree with your assessment of Woody's emotional maturity. I was a student from '75-'79, many of us saw the decline. He was/is still a legendary coach and impactful teacher of young people. He was, in the final analysis, a great man; but still just a man.

Went to Miami my freshman year - transferred to tOSU afterwards and couldn't wait to leave Oxford. Saw some great graffiti in a men's room there: "Miami sucks, but Oxford blows, so the pressure is equalized."

Couldn't agree more.

All of that "Harvard of the Midwest" stuff was BS, too. Classes were at least as difficult at tOSU, if not more so.

Let's consider - reflect-on - where we are as Buckeye Nation before the lads go into battle tonight: the youngest team in FBS by a wide margin with over 40 freshmen on roster; had to replace 16 starters, 12 of which were drafted by NFL teams; lost the best interior D lineman before the season started; had one of the most difficult schedules in the nation; along those lines, had to play the two B1G Championship game representatives AFTER each had a bye, in NIGHT games, on the road; played the most experienced scUM team in a long time & gutted out a win in double OT...

These are just a few thoughts off the top of my head. The coaching job Urban & Co. have done is beyond amazing.  No matter what happens tonight - and I believe we win 28-16 - this has been an incredibly successful year. It's truly a golden age of Buckeye football.

Ah, Gilmore Girls. I had to endure watching this pile of steaming *ichigan over the weekend as my wife & daughter-in-law commandeered the TV. Don't get the attraction - acting and dialogue sux, the townspeople are caricatures... I felt like I lost 10 IQ points (and I only watched 30 mins). May a stake be driven thru it's dark, ugly heart so it never rises again!

Basketbucks had me believing for awhile, then reverted to form. 

We will see improvement in the O-line & passing game. Book it.
