Transplanted Buckeye living in NC, Graduated from TOSU in 97... Live eat and breathe Buckeye Football. Teacher, former HS defensive coordinator, chomping at the bit to get back into coaching, but family needs to come first at the moment.
Was once destroyed by Joey Galloway in the 200 meters during a High School Track meet (Man he was fast!)

I agree with you about not willing to devote my Sunday's to the NFL.  My passion is TOSU and college football.  When I was still coaching, My Mon-Thurs was spent at practice, Friday was game night and then film study, Saturday morning was player meetings and opponent film, and Saturday afternoon was devoted to watching the Buckeyes and college football.  By the time Sunday came, I needed spend some quality time with the family.  Guess maybe that's why I have an Ex-wife...

A Buckeye born and a Buckeye I will die!  My parents gave me 3 choices of schools I could go to if I wanted any financial help from them.  Ohio State, Ohio State, and Ohio State.  They didn't have to tell me that though, for me there was no other choice.  

As far as the Pro's, growing up in the Steel Valley, I was a Steelers, Pirates, and Penguins fan.  I lived near Cinci after college for a while and did become a Reds fan.  So although it may be weird my Pro allegiances are splint between Pittsburgh and Cincinnati (I know, don't ban me to the basement!)

I am sure this has been posted before in one of the 60 articles about Weber, but (that paid) site has an article that says both UFM and Drayton have spoke to Weber as soon as Meyer knew.  On the podcast they state that Drayton was interviewed and accepted the Chicago job the day after signing day so Meyer didn't know Drayton was leaving.  Of course he knew he was feeling out interviews.  Meyer is also reported as saying they have to move forward and hire a great coach.  The interview supposedly came from the Ohio High School Coaches Conference Meyer spoke at.

I got to thinking, students at TOSU probably have no idea who or ever heard of Neutron Man, or the traditions he created with the band.  I think he passed in 2004 or 2005 has it really been that long?

Comment 11 Jan 2015

Just curious I know Buck I Guy, and I think one is Buckeye Man, what is the other one?  

None will ever live up to the Neutron Man

My bet is on the cardiologist cause they will all go into cardiac arrest!

Thanks for the info everyone.  Sounds like I will just take your advice and watch at home.

I can't root for ND, I have even tried in the past and it is just not in my DNA.  As much as I grew up despising FSU, I must root for them to beat ND.  Especially since an undefeated ND will definitely make it to the playoffs robbing a conference champion another spot, and with the whole ESPN SEC needs 2 playoff spots, that would leave 1 spot left for another conference.

OK forget what I said about shutting anybody down...

Comment 18 Oct 2014

True, I am just not familiar with a modern era ND that can shut down anybody or run tempo effectively.

Comment 18 Oct 2014

So has ND actually improved this much, or is FSU just overrated?  I can't help but think Florida is just way overrated.

Comment 04 Oct 2014

Game tickets haven't been selling well, UM might not be able to afford the water bill to do such a test.

Comment 04 Oct 2014

Touchdown Rutgers.  Hoke looks confused. No wait, he is looking for a corndog.

Comment 04 Oct 2014

UM can't tackle... 2 or 3 missed tackles over and over again.

Comment 04 Oct 2014

How sad is it that I have switched to the Rutgers game because it has a much higher entertainment value?

Comment 04 Oct 2014

I am in total agreement with this.  I am enjoying watching the development of a young Buckeye that will overtime become a Buckeye Great.  There are way to many factors and variables that will work themselves out over time to worry about who we would want as QB next year.
