Barnsey, I got lucky. camped last week, came home Thursday afternoon, just as it was getting disgusting!

also, this was my first time with an air-conditioned trailer. so... not really roughing it anymore!

I feel pretty confident that Zeke will come through this okay... but I still wish guys would not go to the hot night spot with a "bunch of people".... I guess I just want them too stay young forever,  college athletes, playing for the love of the game.  Now, he is a big star, and he will see that this little stupid relationship has blown up all over the browsers. 

If I'm Zeke, I'm going home, drawing the blinds and locking the door.

Nice, but not too nice.  Which I like:  I don't like having a bunch of September Heismans on the team.

Other than JT and Raekwon, everybody else is pretty much going to be a "Cinderella story"... and I like that.

IMHO, at the end of the year, one of our 4 or 5 most impressive (highest achieving) players will be Sam Hubbard.  I just have such a good feeling watching him, and it seems like this will be a 12 sack year for him, because he still is not getting much attention.

somebody remind me in January what I'm saying now, okay?? :-)

Love Ohio State hoops!  Actually was a fan of the hoops team (63 to 68) before I was aware of the football program.  I was 12 when we went to the Final Four in 68.

So yes, I hope the basketball program gets back into being in contention every year again.

I just wonder if Thad has been dealing with pain issues too much the last few years? 
I mean, as some others have said, he recruited these guys, he's the man in charge, he's been doing this for 30 years.... He can't just be angry at the players, he needs to demand better of himself and his staff.

I'm glad Jent is back in the fold and I'm optimistic that we will start to see a turnaround.

and of course, please oh please just beat TTUN and TotherTUN!

I would like to see Hill and/or Sprinkle get stouter, heavier, and be the 315-325 pound NT you need against some teams. 

You can't discuss the D Line without thinking about who will be the D Lee-type this year, to knife in through the scrum and take out the QB's legs.  I'm going to miss that part of Lee's game.

But I must say, I haven't worried about our defense for a couple of years.  Very occasional, once in a while breakdowns, but not like 2012 or 2013.  Maybe practicing against our ones helps.

Looking forward to this year, low expectations by OSU standards, so probably a 15-0 year, or 13-1, something like that!!!

...and let's not forget his kickoff coverage against Alabama.  killer.

As for the seniors, I'm waiting for Johnston and Meyer to unleash the punter wildcat run.  There have been a few times where the D line blocked for a second and took off, and Johnston could have easily picked up first down.  I mean, I know we can't waste that play on just any game, but I gotta believe we will see it once before he is gone, right?

Old guy weighing in on night games.... they have their good and bad points.  I play in a band on the weekend so I hate to be in a bar trying to pound the keyboard while watching the Buckeyes with one eye.

And this is strictly an old dude complaint - I love to wake up Sunday after a Buckeye victory and slowly go through the sports section.  Even the Toledo paper usually does a good job covering the Bucks.  But a really late night game will get you the "the results of last night Ohio State-Michigan State game were incomplete at press time.  Check Toledoblade.com for the story." 

No, I want to flip through the paper while I drink my coffee and OJ.  I don't want to go online.

But that's just me - old guy!

reminds me of an 85 yard TD run

Albom has the worst sidekick ever.  What's his name, Ken something??

He just sticks his nose up Albom's crack the whole time.  I mean, that's what a sidekick is supposed to do, but he is pathetic.

Yeah, the Detroit sportscasters (Mike Valente and others) gave props to the Cavs but they don't like LeBron.  At least Valente admitted that you can't be the Alpha Dog without having some "follow me" in your psychological makeup.

Likewise, it's always fun to hear them talk about Urban Meyer because they cannot argue that he's not the best damned coach in the land.

Jealousy sucks!

Just watched the plane land in Cleveland - ran over to Applebee's for lunch...

Huuuuuuuuuuuuuge crowd to welcome the plane.  Great emotional scene!

Now, the players look like the really wanna get home and shower and crawl into their beds for about 10 hours.....

A great win for Cleveland and for Ohio.  I was really touched by JR Smith's attempt to talk last night , on the podium 1/2 hour after the game.  There was a big story about his personal redemption and how everyone basically labeled him a screw-up at some point, and the only people who stayed by him the whole time was Mom and Dad.  If you don't feel something watching that then you have a heart of stone.
