  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2006 #1 vs #2. I was sitting in C-Deck. The noise and excitement were so great that the 'Shoe was shaking and my ears rang for 24 hrs. The best part was that the next day I had an interview and I was so hoarse that I could barely talk however my interviewer was also hoarse from being at the game. Buckeye love runs strong and needless to say the interview went well
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Beanie Wells...That stiff arm was something that dreams (and nightmares) are made off
  • NFL TEAM: Unfortunate for my well being...The St. Louis Rams
  • MLB TEAM: St. Louis Cardinals...Go Redbirds!

It is a right of passage at Ohio State to get a ticket from T&P and get towed by Shamrock. Even if you had a pass, there was no guarantee that you could find a spot and had to roll the dice by parking on the street. I had a CP pass for 3 years and at least once a quarter, I had to park somewhere on the streets around south campus and it usually resulted in a ticket.

I was born and raised in St. Louis but I bleed Scarlet and Gray. The homer in me has been pulling for EzE since he committed. Hometown pride over takes every time he has a little bit of personal success. Hopefully, next season will be filled with an overwhelming amount of those moments that contribute to overall team greatness.

It is amazing how something as simple as a small black strip of tape on the helmet can be such a great motivator. I remember being surprised that Apple wasn't one of the first to lose it but like he said in the video consistency was his issue. In an age where recruiting stars create outsized expectations, that stripe serves as a great check on ego. I hope all the guys deal with adversity the way Apple did. He worked hard, reflected on his problems and had a plan to get better. I love it. Maybe I should do something like this with my new staff members

It's not common where I live. Even though Chipotle is a national chain, I didn't have it in St. Louis when I was growing up and now I live overseas. Going to Chipotle takes me all the way back to Freshman year in Park Hall

I never go to campus without a visit to Chipotle. Also there are a handful of restaurants in the Union that are pretty good particularly Sloopy's Diner and Woody's Tavern

Oh the Thirsty Scholar. 1 dollar wells on weekdays made going to my business capstone course so much more entertaining

I was a part of the horde that rushed the field following the real game of the century (1 vs 2 Ohio State -TTUN in 2006). I like to think that spontaneous act of extreme fandom was in our small way sharing our excitement and gratitude with the Team that gave us such a memorable (and freezing) November afternoon

thanks for the updates. I just tried to open the menu on my mobile device and it pops up and immediately goes away. Also the 11w banner/toolbar seems to be stuck in the middle of my screen. I can click it to navigate but it's no longer staying with the top of the page

Fantastic idea in theory but it's all about implementation. It is just like recruiting, 5 Star recruits and top 5 classes look great in February but in September -January it is about execution

Since I am crawling up the Helmet Sticker count, it will be awhile before I make 100 stickers, I volunteer to beta test the black stripe. I have no shame in letting the world know that I am an 11w novice

I am indifferent on the layout. I believe it is just a matter of adjusting to change. The biggest problem that I have when accessing via my mobile deivces is that one in every three page changes doesn't load properly. The most common problem is that the page will not allow me to scroll down. I usually have to close the browser and reload the page to get it to work. I almost exclusivley access 11w through mobile devices so this is mildly irritating however if this is the only thing I have to complain about I consider it a first world problem

You know when your computer hangs during streaming then fast forwards to catch up, that is the feeling I got watching this highlight. The kid is an absolute burner and in the highlights in looks like he also has great balance and vision. He's got shakes for days.

I participated in Buckeyethon while I was a student at Ohio State (Go Team USG!). The best part of the night was always when they brought in Children from Nationwide midway through the night to give all of the teams a much need lift to finish out the night dancing away. Buckeyethon raises money all year long for  the support on Nationwide Children"s Hospital. I encourage anyone in Columbus to look into participating in this worthy cause.

I believe that Dantonio and MSU will be looked at very closely in how they deal with this situation. I expect a strong and visible statement. Mostly to protect the integrity of the University and the program but also because of what is happening at TSUN with the Brendan Gibbons Fiasco/cover-up. The last thing they need after a year of considerable on the field success is to be linked with that mess happening in Ann Arbor

i am not surprised that it was caught on video. More than likely there was a long enough argument to get everyone's attention. You can see in the video that a crowd is gathered around and  I know that if I see something interesting, disturbing or something I want to tell a story about later, I immediately go for my phone to grab a picture or a video even if I don't fully understand what I am capturing. The video would have been on youtube, worldstar or some other site regardless of who it was. We are talking about it because it happens to also involve a five-star recruit in the middle of Big Ten Country

This doesn't sound much like meddling to me. Smith didn't say that he gave Meyer a directive that Ash would coach all DBs. Chances are this conversation took place in the process of identifying Ash as the guy for the job. I assume a job scope was defined early in the process and then refined during negotiations with Ash to leave Arkansas.

I would expect that Smith values Meyer took much as a coach/employee to go around his head and tell the media how Meyer will deploy his staff without Meyer's consent. Seems like Smith was asked a question and he answered with the information that has already been agreed.
