I sat in the upper deck during the 2012 buckeye win. I guess i didn't get the full loudness up there. It was a good football environment, but it was a nightmare trying to get out of state college. I wouldnt trade the Shoe for that place. And the fans were dicks.

My son played AAU and I feel it was a scam on the parents. The coaches tell them all about all these scholarships the kids can get. It was crazy expensive and had all these ridiculous travel tournaments where only parents showed up to watch. My son had fun going to Vegas and California, but it seemed silly to spend thousands of dollars to try to get a scholarship to some no-name school worth roughly the same amount I spent on AAU.  Unless a kid is a top 300 recruit, I think kids should just play locally and bank the AAU money for college. My son got more offers by signing up for a recruiting website (there are many of them) than he ever got for from AAU, and it cost a fraction of AAU.

McSorely threw up a lot of garbage that his receivers bailed him out on; I hope he doesn't have those same receivers. The Buckeye DLine needs to crunch him before he can chuck one of his arm-punts--or at least give him a nasty shot after he heaves it up.  I don't want to watch his lame home run swing celebration again.

I understand why you wrote the story. It is news. However, I think it may have been a mistake to allow for commenting on such a hot political topic. Wading through the comments and downvotes illustrates why the commenting policy is necessary. You had to know there was little chance the commenting policy would be adhered to while discussing such a sensitive topic. The results were predictable and unfortunate. I hate to see so many buckeye fans angry at one another.

I agree sports can help political change such as the events you mentioned. I didn't say all politics in sports were bad, I just said I didn't want it to intrude on sports too much. Politics is in everything, I just want to get to the point where the actual sport becomes secondary to political messages.

Comment 20 Jun 2017

All the downvotes flying kind of show why politics and sports are not great dance partners. It's good to discuss relevant issues, but doing so will cause divisions. Don't we already have enough divisions with the Big 10 East and Big 10 West? On that note, does the Big 10 West really deserve to be called a division?

I understand he has a message to share, and that's fine if he wants to share it. It's tough because I know everyone has a message to share, and it's such a big stage, but I also don't want to see politics intrude into sports too much. Sports is my escape from politics and the hatred that sometimes goes along with it. That being said, I have no problem with hatred in sports for on-field rivals (TTUN) and even wannabe rivals (Penn State).

I think Harbaugh is a good coach, but he overshadows it with his constant craving for attention. Celebrities, sleepovers, trips to Rome, blah blah blah. Gimmicks don't win games.

I hate mixing politics with sports. Sports used to be an escape from politics, but now its all part of it. The country is so polarized that you annoy 50% of the people no matter what you do/say if it's political. I once had a friend wear a presidential campaign stuff to a game in the Shoe. I was embarrassed to be with him. I'm like, give me one place where I can escape this crap. I'm sure 50% of people will hate the Obama captain thing, the other 50% will love it.

I love the military schools, but I hate playing against this rarely-used offense because of the low cut blocks. The Buckeyes will win, but I just hope no one blows out a knee. I'd much rather the Bucks play an Ohio school with a more traditional offense. That would let some other Ohio kids get to play in the Shoe and the Buckeyes wouldn't have to waste a week preparing for an offense they won't see again all season.

Jack will always be the best in my book. A buckeye legend and gentleman on and off the course.
