  • SPORTS MOMENT: 03 NC, 2011 Wisconsin - Braxton to Smith, 96 Rose, Hole Buckeye!, 2012 Purdue & Kenny G.

    But the best moment: I was introduced to OSU football by my stepfather in 75. He took me to The Shoe, told me Archie and company had just come off the field after a practice & that Archie was going to win another Heisman. I haven't been sane...or the same since..

One thing I could never see is him going to ND where he'd be recruiting directly against OSU. It's well know that ND recruits Ohio more than almost any other state - I can't see him walking into OSU's backyard as ND's coach & say "don't go to Ohio State" Not happening. He's at his last stop in the college ranks one way or another IMO.

As it turns out - he actually is a genius.

You nailed it.

I thought he'd be here for a very long time initially. Now, I think he'll give the NFL a shot at some point. It's just in the man's nature to challenge himself at whatever level he possibly can. How long? Can't worry about that. Gonna just enjoy it however long it is. 

On the other hand, maybe he is a born college coach. I hate this subject because I'd like to just enjoy the run whether 2 more years or 20.

Every show I love, I probably did a binge on. It's one of the perks of all this technology. Madmen, SOA, Breaking Bad, HoC, The Americans, Justified, & more...all binged!

Comment 28 Feb 2015

Never cared much for him. True story. Well, initially I didn't mind him (2012), but once the Gibbons thing happened it was all over. He stopped talking sports. Time & time, & time, & time & time & again he stood on his silly soap box & openly talked politics & mocked anyone one who disagreed. It made me sick. I called him out for it & he would always find a way to say he was simply right, was within his rights to talk politics & had broken no rules. I'd read a lot of folks saying "you're alright M Man".... I just never got it. He was annoying, was way passive aggresive, (almost extremely so) & more importantly he shit on the site by ignoring it's policies. Whatever, good riddance...you see what happens Larry?

Oh yeah!! I  guess the monitor you see it on could definitely play a part (duh). I didn't think of that. My monitors, phone, tablets have all been calibrated to be (hopefully) perfect & in sync with each other. Never took into account not everyone is viewing as I am...

Matta will get his NC at OSU. My crystal ball is very sure of this. When he does, I'll be happy to post a nice F#ck You to all the detractors out there. You're completely & totally out of your mind if you've ever wished Thad Matta to be fired.

The dress is blue & black. What do I see in the top picture? Light blue & brown. I cannot understand how people saw the dress as white. Doesn't compute for me regardless of explanation. 

Comment 26 Feb 2015

That's a solid viewpoint, but you could also say the same thing about Lattimore & Glenville to some extent. But then I suppose the counterpoint would be that plenty of Tarblooders have already had success in S&G while Webb is one the first C-Tech kids to come to OSU & that will be a very vauable pipeline.

Either way, the best man for the job should win it regardless of future recruiting scenarios, although the more I think about it, the more I can see where Webb being the best man for the job could pay large dividends down the road...

I have been super busy & not on the site much so I'm just seeing your response. If you see this hit me up with an email so I can get your contact info & maybe listen to some of what you already have. I'm always looking for good original  music & like working with individuals as opposed to large companies when I can. If I don't hear from you, I'll hit you up if you set your account up so that other members can email you...

I have a video production & photography company here in Florida. Mostly work related to marketing like local TV & web ads, product photos location photos & business headshots etc... Hope to one day cover an OSU game in some capacity!

Comment 22 Feb 2015

I just saw all of this (just haven't been able to get on here as much lately), read through every comment & am laying here, with tears pouring out. From the pride I have in the members of this site, the sadness that life can get you so down, & the happiness that 618 is still here & getting help...

People can say that having these thoughts is weak, but life can kick the ever loving hell right out of you...sometimes it can feel like a permenent solution is the only one that makes sense. I have a story which I won't be sharing, but suffice to say I had my very, very dark days & was lucky enough to have people out there that did everything they could to lift me up. I was reminded of all that is good about people seeing all of this & overwhelmed with relief & joy that nothing bad took place. Thoughts are with 618 & I want to say thanks to every member here who had a kind word. 

BTW - DJ - you're a great dude!

I agree with many on this list. Sequels almost always miss the mark. They did crush it with the Batman/Dark Night trilogy for sure. Although I don't think any of the subsequent Vacation movies topped the original, Christmas Vacation was great...shitter's full! 

Comment 21 Feb 2015

Basically, the honest to God truth is that when he dropped balls they were the easier passes in the middle when he was looking ahead to see if he was gonna get hit or to looking ahead to run after the catch. That's not a knock, I'm a huge fan of his but that's when he dropped passes. I don't recall him dropping a pass ever where he was downfield behind his defender. In that situation, there was no better receiver in the CFB game. Maybe ever.

Comment 16 Feb 2015

Wisconsin beating Auburn was pretty damn impressive for me. I know they're in the West, but you said "the only impressive bowl wins for the B1G were..." Come on now. Also, wins at the end mean more to me than wins in the beginning. In my estimation, the B1G East ended as one of, if not the strongest CFB divisions. I also believe they'll be incredibly strong next year. 

BTW recruiting rankings are great, but I'll take OSU's top 5 classes, NC, & win over Bama over Bama's #1 class every day of the week. At the end of the day #1 classes are like September Heismans...they're fun to brag about until they don't mean shit.

The Newsroom was a great, great show. Ended way too early. This final 6 episodes were some of the best television ever.
