  • 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..

As far as I could tell, the sports media as a whole saw the game as a lackluster affair, that had no real implications nationally. The Game will always be intense for the 2 fanbases & teams involved, but if you truly believe the national perception hasn't changed, & that the casual observer cares about it the way they once did, then we see things differently.

To your point about the Buckeyes in the 90s - we had trouble, but the rivalry remained interesting because UM was beating OSU teams that were competing for NCs yearly. They weren't beating OSU teams that were 5-7. The Game is suffering now because they suck so bad. People always think I am sympathetic to them. I'm not. I hate em more than most & think a loss to OSU would hurt them more if they had a chance at doing something good & we crush that dream. Just like they did so many times to OSU in the 90s.

Voting record visible is great. Also noticeable improvement on load times on my tablet, which is where I view the sight 90% of the time. This is definitely an improvement. Thanks guys!

So ok for Bosa to critique Holtz, but bad to critique Bosa...

I think it's dangerous to place people on a pedestool because they are good at sports. I thought it was an ill advised tweet...I'd like to finish my thought but I need to break wind right now!

Thoughts with the Moore family. I hope that turns out well for all involved. Second - every time I read or see anything about Jacob Jarvis - I straight up cry. Seriously, it never fails to make me extremely emotional. Love this team! Those two kids are just amazing humans as is Jeff Heuerrman! I'm both happy & humbled learned of their situation & how the team has gotten involved. Great stuff - thanks for your efforts DJ - you've been on a tear lately! Merry Belated Christmas everyone & Go Bucks!!!

It was a silly thing to say publicly & Bosa is a young man who probably has no idea that he's quite famous now & put his thoughts out there for the world to see without much thought. Meant no harm. Problem is, like it or not, he's a public figure now & represents Ohio State - not just Joey Bosa. Sometimes you have to curb your personal thoughts or feelings on things in the interest public relations. That's just part of the deal. He may hear a word or 2 from UFM on this one - especially when Urban loves Lou Holtz.

I'm gonna answer that by saying this: Sometimes I fart. Really loudly. It's America & I'll fart if I please...It's my right! However, if I'm I was on a stage, where thousands -  maybe even millions of people can see & hear me, I'd likely tend not to do a lot of loud farting.

I know what people are talking about with Conley, but I've also seen Conley do some trucking...I mean - he damn near killed a guy in the B1G championship game.

Comment 25 Dec 2014

Huh? Tyvis Powell? #23? Guy who won The Game in 2013 & has played well this year? I think he's great. He's had some bad plays - but who hasn't. But your describing a guy who's terrible at football - that ain't Tyvis Powell...

Comment 24 Dec 2014

Yeah, but the conference could use more than one good team (although MSU has been very solid recently) & I for one hated seeing the Minnasota/Wisky game being viewed as more interesting & talked about than The Game was. Part of OSU's history & tradition is tied to the rivalry with UM. The Iron Bowl, USC/UCLA, and even The Egg Bowl (this year anyway) now overshadow The Game - it's becoming a game with no real significance & that is in no way good for OSU. That said, I do understand your sentiment, but DJs last sentence summed it all up very well for me. I have always preferred seeing a UM team with a pulse have their dreams dashed by my Buckeyes as they were in 2006...There's more more satisfaction in it.

As far as him being a good coach...there's no reason to be scared of that. I mean - Harbaugh schmarbaugh...we have the best coach in the game so I could give a shit about his NFL wash out ass or anyone for that matter coming in. Go Bucks!

Comment 23 Dec 2014

I think you could go back & check if I telling the truth here, but I always hoped OSU landed Weber. More so than pretty much all the backs that were being recruited. Of cours I liked Damien Harris, but I never felt he was going to be a Buckeye. So when in that video, at the end when the kid asked if he was definitely gonna sign with the Buckeyes & he said "as off right now, yes" - it's not the most confident answer. I hope this situation never gets interesting!

I have a strange contradiction in feelings about all this. I love Tressel & hated how all of that happened but also love UFM & where OSU is at now...

Comment 22 Dec 2014

That's a bad Vine by Ritz, but it's so bad that people are posting about how bad it is, hence people are watching, hence I'm suddenly hungry for a Ritz cracker, and hence...turns out it was a good Vine by Ritz. Funny how that works.

I'd say the improvement on D this year was more about Withers leaving & getting the right guy in there. But I'm gonna guess Fickell & Ash were equally involved & both good. Fickell called the games from my understanding & while it took a bit to get there, this defense looked like the best in the country by the B1G Campionship.
