Its not so much that its important, bt it breaks away from what is percieved as a social norm. I think as more players come out, it will fade away, much like other barriers have been broken down.

After reading the article, and the comments, I was unaware that the Bucks struggled against Buffalo and didnt seal the deal until the last posession? Not the game I remember. I remember getting up and taking the foot off the throttle...Buckeye bias Im sure.

Other than that, pretty good write up.

Ive been to AA a couple of times for The Game, always had a good time, but was always somehow shocked how nice people were. Tend to tailgate at the golf course there were a ton of Ohio State fans too. Even stayed and went out to dinner and drinks  in town, wasnt that bad. I'll go back.

Penn State was awful, not a good things about it to report.

Illinois/Purdue/Indiana all about the same, they knew what was coming and even jocked about it.

Honestly the worst I've seen is from our own fanbase, The Texas game was bad, idiots yelling F Texas to little kids, that day was a little embarrassing for such a normally awesome group of people. Then completely redeemed itself when USC came to town.

So I'd say its a crap shoot, depends where you are, who you're with, and the age group you're dealing with.

The worst case gave me that uneasy upset stomach feeling, like seeing a massive accident or injury in person. I just cant accpet that happening ever. Those people winning the big ten?? Puke.

I always forget about Strawberry White, I heard the stories, the good ones anyway. I heard he was getting into coaching at the high school level at somepoint. Would be great to hear of a turn around for him.

I grew up in cambridge, went to a country high school around there, and always heard about White Lightning, one of the all time great greats to come out of that area. Geno Ford, Jay Burson, Jeff Snedegar as well.

I wore and Eddie Throwback jersey for every game and tailgate 05/06, never waivered. Had it on for the debacle against UF, it has not been out of my closet since. Bad Mojo man...

Also, the Saturday morning of each game, I go to the same giant eagle and buy one 12 pack of PBR, sometimes it gets drank other times it doesnt, but it about the principle.

I understood the Fickell frustrations, and agreed with most of them. For some reason though especailly the past two seasons, it felt like the horses werent there.

I know they are all supposed to highlevel recruits capable of doing anything and everything, but maybe there were a few misses, a few drop offs, and a few disappointments. This season has a different feel. The coaches seem more intune with the kids, and the scheme.  I got excited when I saw flashes of greatness by a couple guys last year, and moments of guarded hope when I watched the spring game.

I dont post on here very often, actually I think this is only the second time I ever have.

I loved Smooth Jazz as much as anyone, but I never understood, why people wanted to pull someone like Braxton. To me it was clear, there was a starter and a back-up. There was reason for that.

Im all for the underdog, its a great story, but when there is a monster wearing #5 ya gotta go with him.

Thanks! Hopefully I can stop being a lurker and start posting more.
