easy-peasy way to clear this up.  Is she indeed pregnant? Because (and I'm not trying to overly criticise her here but) women know that pregnancy is an instant sympathy card and ... if she happens to not be, that comment is all you need IMO that she was clearly trying to stir things up

Barrett and his girlfriend, Alexandria Barrett-Clark, called police

huh? so who actually made the phone call? sounds like there were high tempers and minor aggression on both sides. I'm giving them all the benefit of the doubt for now but I'll be surprised if the media does the same.

For now, I blame whoever it was who watched each thing happen to this team and responded with "well it cant get any worse, can it" each time.  No more tempting fate!

Dont even bother reading it, dont give the Lantern the click support for publishing such poorly written trolling.  Go read The Fake Lantern instead, far more truth there anyway.

I would be willing to take an 80% of being crippled upon arrival in order to go back in time and replay the ending to that dodgeball game. That's how salty I am about a game that occurred eight years ago, and I'm just an some idiot with a rudimentary understanding of English and a WiFi connection.

So, I wouldn't be surprised if Urban Meyer thinks about those two losses every day of his life. I bet he still gets fired up thinking about every petty mistake he made. And that's before even taking into consideration Urban's track record as an underdog. (*Troy Smith nods wistfully in the distance*)

I also still remember minute of the most devestating loss of my short athletic career.  I would give just about anything, including being forced to redo all 4 years of HS, just to re-play that one game. Still makes me angry.

That said, all of this is making me strangely more and more confident in Urban Meyer going into this game.

Michigan's attendance numbers for that list are based on their reported attendance for each game which has been famously exaggerated all season to keep it above their 100,000 attendance streak, to the point where I believe there were a couple games where the Michigan fans started boo-ing the announcers when the attendance numbers were announced. They got away with it because it counted tickets "sold" attendance, not butts in seats attendance.

As far as I have heard, Mirror Lake had pretty much wound down by 2am so it seems strange that hr would have ended up there. Plus, as much as everyone has complained about the restrictions on mirror lake I doubt anything could happen there at the lake without someone noticing, even before the wristbands they were real good at getting help for the few people who ended up needing it. Grandview seems like a strange destination from E 7th unless he was possibly going to find someone who lived over there? Although I guess if he ended up on 5th heading west and just kept walking, Grandview is just about where he would end up after half an hour of casual walking, so that timing makes sense with the "taking a walk". All in all, this is a horrbile situation for his family and I'm praying that he just ended up somewhere unfamiliar with a dead phone but the longer there is no news, the scarier it gets.

UC students really hate games at Paul Brown (which to be fair are a horrible logistical nightmare for any student coming from UC's campus) so i doubt there were as many of them there to begin with

Comment 11 Nov 2014

I get it can get cold in late November, but it's also cold for a third of the year in the Midwest, and yet... people still function fine.

tell that to the players during this Saturday's noon matchup at Minny. I guarantee if the weather is anything like the forecast they will be hoping for every ray of sunshine possible

Comment 11 Nov 2014

No one, and I mean no one, predicted a record-breaking season from the new signal caller when #5 went down for the count in August

yes yes. And I will include myself in that "no one". That is one thing I LOVE about JT's outstanding performance.  Troy Smith in 2006 was expected to put up those numbers. Same with Braxton Miller last year. They are still outstanding records, no discounting that.  But the fact that Barrett is shocking even the most optimistic of Buckeye fans is amazing.  The fact that we went from the sky is falling to sitting back waiting for records to fall is outstanding.

Comment 05 Nov 2014

are you sitting down? — it looks like the NCAA had no idea what it was doing or how to handle the unprecedented case. So, it did the only thing reasonable: make things up as it went along.

you mean to tell me that the NCAA made hurried decisions in cases where facts were not completely known in order to bolster their own legitimacy and appease the roars of the indiginant public hyped up by inflamatory media?!?! unheard of! shocking! my heart cant take the surprise!
**swoons in shock**

Comment 03 Nov 2014

i'll take a repeat of that outcome, please

Comment 28 Oct 2014

Nope. Everyong in the B1G gets extremely fired up when they play the Buckeyes.  Face it, other than MSU the last year or so we are the biggest conference game on anyone's schedule.  Of course they get fired up, that doesn't mean we need to reciprocate.

Purdue and Illinois show up and surprise us every couple years too and you dont see us making them a rival.

Comment 26 Oct 2014
The band and the heckler I have no problem with, it's a prime time B1G game, it's going to get heated. The 4 am wake-up call was completely unclassy and excessive. Rile the fans, band, coaches all you want but respect the away players, football games are played out on the field, let's keep it that way

last year I actually had a Penn State friend ask me what OSU does for Penn State Week "you know, like M*ch*gan Week?"

my response was: "What's Penn State Week?"

Comment 23 Oct 2014

nah, i think we'd be lucky to get >10% in the stadium.  This is prob their biggest home game this year so i doubt many people are selling tickets second hand and PSU already makes it harder to resell on the secondary market than a lot of other schools, expecially student tickets. Plus they've put a lot of effort into making OSU games an absolutely acidic environment for away fans (something about a rivalry??) so i think there are fewer who travel there to begin with.

that said, 10% or so scarlet in a whiteout is still damn visible!
