I grew up in Buckeye loving household. So much so that my first and middle names are after two Buckeye greats one in Basketball and one in Golf. So all the stars aligned to be a Buckeye fan. But one year for a hot second in 2nd grade I turned my allegiance to TTUN. I think it was mostly because I was kid during the Cooper Era. My older cousin was a UM fan and I looked up to him. Santa Mom and Dad even bought me a UM shirt and sweatshirt, and grandma bought me a hat. Luckily that phase only lasted a couple months. I wanted to root for a winning team I guess. But it was two months way too long, and I now call that my "Cooper Years Phase". 

I guess the only other team I was a band wagon fan of which 90% of kids growing up in the 90's would say was a Chicago Bulls fan. And that was because of MJ. Once he retired I kind of stopped watching NBA until LBJ came to the Cavs. And since 2003 I've been a big Cavs fan even during his 4yr hiatus.

While in undergrad in the City Planning program we had to pick a place and make a short 1-2 min video calling for redevelopment. I chose to redevelop the old Longs Book Store. You can watch the video at this link: http://youtu.be/iJq9-PvUvWE. Unlike Campus Partners I chose to keep the building and turn it into a bowling alley. When they built the new Ohio Union "funding" was not left to bring the bowling alley back. I also wanted to develop the brick building next door into a pool hall/bar. I was early into planning school at the time this video was made, but knew something had to be done with the iconic location. Too bad that area will look completely different in a few years. No More Too's or OFratio :/

I am 25 and have attended 42 games so far in my life. This number is slightly skewed due to being a student at tOSU from 2008-2012. I attended my first game when I was 5 or 6 years old.  My dad use to work at the University and thus occasionally would get tickets from co-workers. That first game was 1996 against Minnesota. All I remember from that game is that it was cold as crap and snowing horribly bad. We left early due to me becoming cold and the “large” guys next to me continually coming into my seat.  Below are all of the games that I have attended both home and away.

You could always do a bacon cheeseburger pizza: Bacon, ground hamburger, and a mixture of cheddar and mozzarella cheese. You could always add the garden if you desire (lettuce, tomatoes, onion, pickles). 

Comment 09 Feb 2015

When I moved to north campus after my freshman year living on the dirty south, I so badly wished they had a north campus satellite store. Every game day I go back to  campus I have to make a stop there before going to Out-R-Inn to drank

I made a pretty legit Beer Pong table in college that was Buckeye themed. I made a racing stripe around the edges of the helmet stripe, and placed the Buckeye Leaf stickers in the center of the spots marking the cups. In the center was a big Block O logo with an Elevator Brewing Co. Bleeding Buckeye Beer bottle inset into the table on each side of the O. I still have this table and it is in fairly good shape after two years of use in college. I can try to find a picture of it deep in my computer archives.

I have had a couple different sets of superstitions throughout my young OSU fandom.When I was in college (08-12) while attending tOSU on gamedays. I always had to have my phone in one pocket, gum and keys in another. I had to be up and out of the dorm/apartment so many hours before kickoff. I had to be in my seat for "Hell's Bell's and the Hive" two things Tress did for pre-game. Oh, and I always stood outside of St.John Arena to watch the team walk in to Skull Session. 

Now when I was in middle school through high school my best friend and I had a tradition of him spending the night at my place the Friday night before The Game. We'd do childish middle school stuff like staying up late and IM'ing all the little hotties we went to school with hahahaha. We'd get up the next day and my mom would have Donatoes Pizza waiting. We missed two games from 7th through 12th grade, one of which was the 2003 "100th Meeting" which we lost and I think our Senior year but luckily we won that game. I still blame him for that loss in 2003.

Warming up Lauderdale and Manson's seats and occasional garbage/foul trouble time. Besides that it was a waste of a scholarship. Beside Willy B that whole class was stinky 

Comment 24 Dec 2014

If we're talking Koufos, we cannot forget about the other one-hit wonder Byron "BJ" Mullens. I think he's in Europe somewhere maybe China. 

Comment 22 Dec 2014

He now show some respect that man on the left is an "ESPN Hall of Fame Man". He is now in the hallowed halls of Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior, and Stone Cold Steve Austin but for a different network. 

"INSERT SARCASM" I really dislike those two TRUE attention lady's of the night"

The camera points to Braxton and he's on the main floor with the other graduates, but he's not even wearing his cap (obviously wants to be noticed). It was sad and the President even made a subtle remark as for him to put his cap on when he said "nice haircut, Braxton." He pretty much spends the rest of the time eating up attention from the graduates in attendance. 

I too am a graduate of tOSU. I graduated in 2012 in what felt like 100 degrees of heat inside The Shoe. NOT ONCE did Dr. Gee or anyone for that matter tell the co-eds to put their gowns back because it was hot as HE-double hockey sticks, or that we weren't allowed to leave our seats to use the bathroom or go under A-deck to attempt to cool off. Braxton has been pretty humble every time the media has talked to him in his four years here. I can think of one quarterback that was the starter while I attended OSU and he was far from it.

I like this. This can only help Columbus' chances on eventually hosting a Men's Final Four. The city already hosts Round 2/3 games for the men's and had done the same for the women's tourney as well. If the City/OSU/Nationwide Arena can put on a great show we could possibly get a men's one soon. Because if you look at the other host cities in the running to host the 2018 Final Four most have also held men's final fours. Congrats to Cbus on receiving  this great money maker for the city.

Welp it looks like Dave Brandon failed to deliver a winning football coach in 40 games or less. Does this mean my pizza I ordered for lunch is now free?

Comment 24 Oct 2014

I too thought about this one Maybe due to the fact that it is pretty recent in my memory, but also that was the game that he honored his late friend that passed away earlier that week. He played lights out that game and that pick-6 was the KO punch on his amazing night and the road to 12-0.

I knew he was a big supporter of UofM, and that they looked at him for baseball. I swear I've seen a Jeter baseball card where he was in a UofM uniform?? Maybe I've been drinking too much Kol-Aid
