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

You don't have that in Columbus, for some reason.  Tressel can come back, and be lifted on the shoulders of current and former players.

Come on MMan - Tressel won a ton of games & almost always beat his rival. RichRod didn't. This one's simple.

And nobody is withholding any admiration for Urban Meyer.  There's a massive collective amnesia about his Florida tenure and beating the Buckeyes.

I don't have amnesia, I remember it well. I was never once mad at him though. He did his job. I hated that OSU took the beating in a NC game, but why would I hate the coach or begrudge him for coaching? I just hated UF - the entity as a whole.

If you trade those spectacular runs you likely are trading less points for the illusion of a "balanced" offense.

I doubt you would lose points by balancing the offense, in fact I suspect there would be more. But I can't prove it anymore than you can prove your theory so I'll stop there.

What I do know to be fact is that you do risk injury every time one of those spectacular runs happens. Injury to the QB that can't be afforded this upcoming season in particular. I just said I love Braxton btw, so please don't try to take my opinion as my saying I don't think he's great. He's my favorite current college football player. I don't care if it were Joe Burrow, Barrett, Cardale, Collier or Gibson. It's my preference that the next QB, or even Braxton this year, let more of the players around them do more work.

If they want to bite OSU's/Woody's style, I could care less. These aren't the first guys to do it either...It's kind of a compliment really. Even the the fine folks in the backwards country of Mississippi know that Woody Hayes & not Dan Mullen was the guy who brought "TSUN" to prominence.

Glad to hear he'll be here. It's a far trip, but it's not as if he were heading to the 90210 area code...or Melrose Place.

Ohio States soccer mock jersey's are great! Also like Nebraska's, Indiana's, PSU's, & MSU's. UM, of course, really does look the worst.

 I don't think people are pissed that we have a QB that can run, just that the passing seems to be spotty.  I would be willing to trade a few spectacular runs a year for a lot more passing completions, even though I love Braxton's runs.

Took the words right out of my mouth. I don't think anyone wants a Peyton Manning clone in this offense. I personally would just like to see a more even distribution to the many weapons OSU now has & fewer QB runs in general. I love a guy who can run when needed. I also LOVE Braxton's ability but I'd fine fine if in the future the Ohio State QB spent a little more time in the pocket regardless of how athletic he is.

Minnesota & Maryland are the 2 games I worry about most in regards to potential "Traps". That said, come game day, I have a nervous/exited pit in my stomach & worry about all of them evenly.

Way late on this, but those Cold War pics are awesome!

Cajun - I just threw you an upvote because you're close & I want you to see that therapist. On a related note, I saw Andy naked recently & that's all I have to say about that.

Henceforth & forever more, the act of going completely & utterly insane, to the point being frightening, over your favorite sports team & equally, utterly insane to the point of being frightening against another sports team - shall be known as "Going all Roy Jones". Spread the word across the land, as it has been decreed!

Because we are both great football minds, it appears Phil Steele agrees with me on Maryland. Looks like he actually does know his stuff.

I can't stop watching that vine either. Damn.

Good deal, glad they're not gone. Yeah, all I wear are t-shirts & I really like 11Ws stuff a lot. Fits perfect, related to OSU football, & totally unique...hoping you don't get rid of the 11W interstate sign please - that was up next.

Just heard about this. I was a Rockford Files guy myself - Maverick was slightly ahead of my time but Rockford Files & the car stuff in that show had me captivated as a kid. He was a great actor.

Seems like time really speeds up with age & the days fly by. The good news is the season will be here soon...
