Yes - actually for that game he could NOT get his coke supply and was having Withdrawl during the game... Sad - RG said that he was introduced to the drug when he hurt his back the year before. The story has a great ending though as his son graduated with honors from Yale and is currently in Harvard Business School... Amazing how life turns out and I'm sure Rod is so proud of his son. As I recall - Rods grandmother actually raised his son and he does not have much contact... But given the circumstances - what am amazing ending...
The 1978 Sugar Bowl was strange as our D showed up in the first half and actually had a goal line stand on Alabama's opening drive. Our QB was not himself that day for reasons many may already know... If that wasn't the case I really feel we could have won that one...
You should get the books for her ;-) although I am a bias reviewer... love the name.. I had to work hard to slip Emerson and Anne Parker past the goalie... Go Bucks
Thanks again for the kind words and the support!
226 - I also think Marshall throws for 50 of his own
This kid is unreal - complete and total class... What a joy it will b to spend the next 2-3 seasons with him.... We will b incredibly spoiled...
I felt as if was pulling on JT hard - things happen in football - just heard it's broken... Guess we have two great QB in the fall of 2015 -
Why you don't release a collection of these essays as a book are beyond me. Hunter Thompson mixed in with the wit and intellectualism of a young William F. Buckley if you ask me..Typical amazing stuff we come to expect to be spoiled with on a weekly basis. What a slice of life totally out of our day to day existence.. and.. only on the day of our 'revenge' game.. which seems downright silly in this context. Good thing you didn't detail how you had dreamed of "Killing the Spartans" for what they did to us last year. My only regret... or suggestion... can you please send our three very overly exposed current Buckeye "SuperFans" to the same airport the morning of the OSU/Michigan game?
Coach Bruce - How does it feel to have a children's book written about the magical 1979 team? haha.. seriously my question is this - One of my favorite traditions that I share with my kids that Earle Bruce started was holding the four fingers up to start the 4th Quarter. I always thought this was the best celebration of the endurance and attitude needed to succeed in anything. What was your inspiration to start this tradition and how did you players react to this.

Thank you for the suggestion.. I checked out his artwork and he does a remarkable job...
Also a quick update for those who did the pre order. I spoke with the printer - I expect the books to ship by Mid October assuming there are no delays on their end. Thanks again to everyone and I can't wait for the books to arrive!

This response to this promotion thus far has been more than overwhelming. I am so thankful to 11W and Ramzy for this partnership and I've always thought that my books were a perfect fit for the 11W community as I feel it has a unique brand all its own within the Buckeye Internet Universe.... I can't wait till the books ship to see what your kids think of them.
Thanks again and Go Bucks!
thank you... I'd love to see video of this moment... I've been reading this to my girls for the better part of their lives.. it will be nice to see someone else's take on these...
haha.. can I get a video of this... seriously that would be great...
you are a good dad .... thinking about Christmas this early... she is blessed.
That is the ultimate compliment. Really. Thanks
