Nothing interesting, just a fan of the best college football program in the world. Became an even bigger fan, when my old OC became a coach at Ohio State.

Damn, I might be one in the minority that liked Beau, he is like that Douchey friend everyone else hates, but for some reason you like to hang out with him.

Best of luck to him if he is leaving!

Comment 15 Jan 2015

Did he steal your girl or something? Thats a lot of hate for one kid.

I know Ive said this before, but damn with fans like that who needs rivals?

Comment 15 Jan 2015

Whenever I see a post like this I think of the quote from A Bronx Tale from Sonny to young C:

Mickey Mantle? That's what you're upset about? Mantle makes $100,000 a year. How much does your father make? If your dad ever can't pay the rent and needs money, go ask Mickey Mantle. See what happens. Mickey Mantle don't care about you. Why care about him?

Maybe not to this level, but putting hopes and worries into someone you dont know and cant advise is like running on a treadmill, it might pass the time, but you arent getting anywhere. Ohio State football has a great support system, the kid will be fine.

Id roll the dice on the flexfit, not a huge fan of the flatbill look.

I wish I could multiple up vote the eskimo-bro tag.

I know this is not on the level of Braxton, but when i was in college I had to sit out of year of football because of injury. The emotional toll of that year still haunts me, its so weird to have something youve worked incredibly hard for yanked away from you and you only. All your friends are still out there doing the same stuff and as hard as they try to keep you involved and a part of the group, the dynamic changes. The world doesnt stop, but yours just did. You become less emotionally invested and a little disenfranchised with football as a whole. Im mean how dare the one thing you love more than anything, be the cause of all this pain? Its heart breaking on a grand scale. If youre lucky you get it back the next spring or next season, but that wound is always just below the surface.

So in #5's case I cant even imagine the rollercoaster he's been on. From the top of the mountain to having the people that so loved you much that they bought your replica jersey pretty much say good riddance. In a sense Im sure JT is having some of those same feeling on a smaller scale. Im also sure there a bit of resentment for both of them. You can say all the right things, but the little competitive voice in the back of your head will say, "damn thats my shine, I worked for that."

So on some level I get it, but in a more real sense I have no idea.  In a perfect world everyone get theirs, but we dont live in a perfect world.

Comment 09 Jan 2015

I completely agree, and probably should have elaborated more about my point of view.

I absolutely love what JT has been able to do, and think the kid is special. Of course at times my selfish, conspriacy theorist, player hater side comes out. This is all because of my weird loyalty to Braxton, that I think I have tried to explain before.

No matter how any of this shakes out, the positives moving forward far outweigh and negative.

As always your responses make sense to me and come from a different angle, thanks!

Comment 09 Jan 2015

He's doing exactly what he's paid to do, thats why he has a job. Make no mistake it doesnt have anything to do with knowledge or insight, its all about clicks and eyeballs.

He can fire up the fan bases very easily, and in turn drive clicks and views, which as we all know make advertising dollars.

ESPN may be evil and most certainly have an agenda, but they arent stupid.

Comment 09 Jan 2015

Yep, I will be very interested in seeing him play, looks the part and will have some time to develope before he steps in.

Comment 09 Jan 2015

I like to wear my #84 BT Warriors Jerseys on friday nights when I watch High school football and think about the glory days. All while I tear apart the current teams kids because they'll never be as good as I was at 15, I mean really I was a big deal.

Sarcasm so heavy it needed italics and mentioned.

Comment 08 Jan 2015

I was just curious, it was an interesting comment. Either way you're entitled to your thoughts. Got me thinking though, so up votes for you!

Comment 08 Jan 2015

Im curious. Why would you want them on the schedule? To beat him or to see him play again? Spite or support?

Comment 08 Jan 2015

Agreed, it is something cool to have. Would make a helluva Buckeye room addition framed up on a wall, if the outcome is favorable Monday night.

Comment 08 Jan 2015

For me, Let me state that again for everyone that reads this FOR ME, I think jerseys in general on grown men are kind meh... Especially with all the cool stuff thats available now, Homage, 47 brand, Nike, all the independent companies that would be my choice.

But hey whatever floats your boat, I have a few in my closet from when I was younger, but always subscribed to the never wear one of anyone your age or younger.

They are cool jerseys, so in the end if you like it and want to rock it, who gives a fuck what anyone thinks.

Comment 08 Jan 2015

All you have to do is listen/watch the head man, if he's got that little smirk and quiet confidence all is well.

Im at ease this week, its been a helluva season, Im confident in the win, but still playin with house money. Its all good.

Comment 08 Jan 2015

They dont like TP at all, and I think there is some back story about why Common Man hates Troy Smith, not for sure on that one, but I vaguely rememeber him being butt hurt about Smith for some reason.

To me they are ok, they kind of come off as the dorks in high school that have gotten a little popular, so now they act like they dont care to like these guys, when secretly they probably just want to be friends with them.

Im not knocking high school dorks, hell I work in IT so there that, more of the idea that someone had their come up and think they are too cool for people now.
