I was a huge Ohio State fan before I discovered 11w, but it's thanks to all of your efforts that I now have a daily outlet for my fanaticism. Thank you for all the content and for creating this amazing community!
I would love to see him as a bookend with Cam Hayward in Pittsburgh!
(And now to take precautions against the inevitable DV fallout...)
When I see a graphic like this from TCUN (those clowns up north), it makes me think they should change their mascot to something more fitting. How about the Ann Arbor Amateurs?
I've joked for years about inferior teams heading to the Dollar General Bowl. It's nice to see that it actually materialized. And by "nice to see" I mean it's pretty revolting and this bowl should not exist.
I'm a Steelers fan, but a much bigger fan of Buckeyes past, present, and future. I'd love to see him make the roster and have a monster season for the Browns. Light up Pittsburgh, and everyone else on the schedule, TP!
The comments about Dantonio...
So nice of them to move the dates "for the fans". It probably had nothing at all to do with revenue.
The movie "Eddie the Eagle".
n Ass Butt would grow up in Ohio, but play for michigan.
If he did it, it's a terrible situation. If she's lying, it's a terrible situation.
If my sports fanaticism can distract me from the depressing, every day atrocities that the inhabitants of Earth insist on putting one another through, it's a great situation! It just hasn't been working out too well recently.
The 2006 seasons for basketball and football sure made me dislike Florida. After losing both championships, I fantasized about buying the largest gas-guzzling vehicle I could afford so that I could drive circles around my yard to speed up global warming and flood the entire state.
Good thing I didn't, or we might not have Urban today. You're welcome, fellow Buckeye fans!
I never realized it before, but my wife makes the "
M" sign every time she gets a manicure.
Ohio State gets all the breaks! How can they justify being a playoff contender if they don't even play the best team in their own conference?!
'Round these parts, we don't give a damn about the whole state of michigan!
I feel your pain as a fellow Reds fan. I'm just trying to enjoy watching the young pitchers develop along with the great seasons so far from Duvall, Bruce (soon to be in another uniform), and Cozart (soon to be in another uniform). Of course a lot of that joy is usually sapped by that train wreck of a bullpen, but there do seem to be reasons for optimism down the road. As they say, "You can't win them all."
Ha! Very true.
One thing that I have noticed is the older I get, the more I enjoy the wins and the less that I wallow in the losses. A loss used to ruin the entire season for me, then it would ruin my week, then my weekend. Now, I can typically move on in a matter of a few hours. (It might take a little longer when it's a loss like last year against MSU. I still can't believe the play calling in that one!)
Some might think this makes me less of a fan, but I just try to maximize the joy that I get out of following the team instead of stressing myself out and being angry while I'm watching a close game that should be a comfortable lead. I enjoy teaching my 5 year old son about the game as he watches with me instead of cursing at the television. I enjoy texting friends about an amazing play instead of worrying about the easy dropped pass from the last series. I guess at this point in my life I have enough sources of stress that I don't want to make watching a sport that I love one of them.
If you can do it, my advice is to watch with zero expectations. Taking that approach has worked well for me and made watching football much more enjoyable than it ever used to be. Of course a 50-4 record since UFM took over doesn't hurt much either.
This was the real Bizarro Urban:
1921 vs Oberlin College. Those smug bastards won't quit chirping about it!
These wolves may be young, but they should also be very hungry.
Hopefully he finally gets his chance to crack an NBA roster. He is certainly deserving.
Ha! Too bad D'Angelo had to find that one out the hard way.
I never followed recruiting before you started working so tirelessly to bring us the news. Thanks for all of your hard work and contributions. You've definitely made your mark around here and I'll certainly miss reading your articles.
Having said that, congratulations! I'm sure you'll be a huge success, wherever it is that you're headed.
I hope you're right! Another 8 or 9 seasons would be most excellent.
