OSUBias, You are correct. I forgot about the blocked punt against Kent State because of the fumble at the end of the play. I gave you credit in the article. Thanks for the help.
Bosa leads the nation in forced fumbles. Looking forward to seeing him add another against Maryland.
Hoke talking about teaching safer football*
*Does not apply when your team is down 30-7 to Minnesota with around 10 minutes to go in the game.
My column, The Ohio State Effect: Cincinnati might be of help.
When the alum said:
"Oh.....I'll bet there aren't many OSU grads that make their way into Stanford Sloan"
Your response was perfect:
"As I remember it, we had one more than Michigan did that year"
Too many times I think of the perfect comment after the window of opportunity has passed. Your quick wit in that situation was fantastic.
Let's end with chunkum's post:
So what exactly does Hoke do on this team? Serious question.
Thanks, now fixed.
BucksfanXC, Happy birthday and welcome to adulthood.
My advice, continue to run (or start), workout and start taking propecia the moment you think you are losing your hair.
Most important, have fun today and everyday of your life.
Ohio's best, the nation's best
The best mascot:
Byaaaahhh, Did not know that, thank you.
Did a little digging and found this on Wikipedia:
The Bearcat became the UC mascot on October 31, 1914 in a football game against the UK Wildcats. The key players in the birth of the Bearcat were a star UC player named Baehr, a creative cheerleader, and a talented cartoonist. During the second half of that hard-fought football game, UC cheerleader Norman "Pat" Lyon, building on the efforts of fullback Leonard K. "Teddy" Baehr, created the chant: "They may be Wildcats, but we have a Baehr-cat on our side."
The crowd took up the cry: "Come on, Baehr-cat!" Cincinnati prevailed, 14–7, and the victory was memorialized in a cartoon published on the front page of the student newspaper, the weekly University News, on November 3. The cartoon, by John "Paddy" Reece, depicted a bedraggled Kentucky Wildcat being chased by a creature labeled “Cincinnati Bear Cat".
The name stuck, but not immediately. Following Teddy Baehr's graduation in 1916, the name dropped out of use, at least in print, for a few years. On November 15, 1919, Cincinnati played at Tennessee.Cincinnati Enquirer writer Jack Ryder's dispatch on the game was the first time that the major media called UC's teams "Bearcats." From then on, the university's teams were regularly called Bearcats.
In 2008 the Cincinnati Zoo adopted a three month old Binturong or "Bearcat". The zoo had a public naming contest where they decided on the name "Lucy." Lucy is now a prominent figure at the University of Cincinnati and can often be found on Sheakley Lawn before home football games.
Teddy Baehr the inspiration for Bearcat:
Just read that Chamoda Palmore of Cincinnati died in a motorcycle accident this evening. My thoughts and prayers go to his family and his teammates.
Ohio State's largest margin of victory was 67-6 in 1931. I'm hoping the Buckeyes can set a new record Saturday night.
What the Bearcats are using for motivation:
Fortunately Columbus has a privately owned radio station that has been around for 20+ years playing the best alternative music. If you ask them they'll even bring an ice cream truck filled with Velvet ice cream to your work:
My wife surprised the family with tickets to the game. We're taking our two kids to their first Ohio State game. Looking forward to seeing the Buckeyes tame the cats.
I'm hoping to make it to Eleven Dubgate. Just not sure it would be the best place to take my kids who are 7 and 5. If I can't partake I will definitely do a walk-by.
Rundown and Cincinnati, I couldn't help but to think of Skyline Chili.
Nice. Thanks for the imagery.
That reminds me, now I know where I'm taking the kids for dinner:
E135800, My typist (NSFW) made an error when she read my notes. For some reason I can't fire her.
Thanks for the help, you are today's:
GoBucks10, Have fun at the game and thanks for doing your part by screaming your head off. If only every fan would yell when Ohio State was on defense. I'm pleased that the AC/DC Bell has helped get a Pavlovian response on 3rd down.
Thanks ahead of time to you, and the other loud fans, for making the 'Shoe a true home-field advantage for the Buckeyes.
