Welcome brotha,

Love hearing about the younger guys that have happened to move, yet still bleed Scarlet and Gray.

 If he stays at Ohio State for 10-15 more years, the peak of Ohio State football might be ahead of us instead in the past with Woody.

Was not impressed at ALL last year with Kalis.  One could argue he was the weakest link on a very, very bad offensive line.

Priority number one should be locking down Kluber. He's just nasty. 

Without question.  He's the guy you literally build around, along with Brantley, Chisenhall, Salazar, McCallister (I really believe in Zach) , Cody Allen and Gomes. I'll toss a very shakey honorable mention to Santana given his second half.  

But it all needs to revolve around Klub.

I'm glad to see others here share my opinion of MSU. 

That program is for real.  While losing Bullough, Dennard and a few other key defensive guys will hurt a little initially, Dantonio is one coach I feel that will have guys ready to step in and fill the gap left behind.  Moreover their offense went from bad last season, to fairly solid and competent week after week; Conner Cook with a year under his belt now, a lot of targets to throw to and an experienced o-line should make their offense go from "competent" to very efficient  this year.

Loved the guy growing up in the 90's.  Thome said all the right things as free agency was closing in, but in the end he jumped for the last peso. And I'll never begrudge a player for that.

That said, statues should be for more, in my opinion, than just late inning home-runs and signing autographs for kids at the ballpark.  It should be for character, loyalty, service and yes, even sacrifice. Thome had the God-given talent of hitting the long ball down pat.  I'm just not so sure about the rest of those rare, special traits (see Bob Feller for an example of all of those).

Oh yeah, I pimp the hell out of this place.  The recruiting updates, Skull Session, recaps after a game and just about every other piece written for several years now.  I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've linked it to Ohio State fans online on other sites (Bleacher Report, etc).

Also tonight, the governing body for the band’s Alumni Club called for Waters’ reinstatement.

Things are about to get even more interesting.

Let's be honest.  The 21st century has not been kind to UM in any measurable way, and the future is nearly as bleak.  I imagine as a fan of such a beaten, down trodden program, it's the small, "moral" victories that one has to take solace in.

Still, as good a hit as that was,  it's the following train-wreck that people will still be talking about 10, 20 and 30 years from now....

That's exactly how college will feel but you won't realize how cruel this is until you wake up someday soon and you're no longer college men.

No truer words have been written.  The best -- and fastest -- four years of my life; right there on the Olentangy.

A few years behind you, let me know how it all works out.

And happy birthday, btw.

That's freaking epic.

Now how will any of us get any sleep tonight?

Ikr?  This will surely weigh heavily on my mind all night long.

1.  Welcome.

2.  Great story.  Anything that ends with a Lloyd scowl is worth the price of admission.

He has sent me links to articles and threads on 11W and I have enjoyed reading the blog ever since. It is a much more reasonable place than some other blogs I have visited.

3.  I concur.  11 Warriors does it right.

At $15,000,000 a season, and three seasons left (including this one), I'm not sure who would want him.  He's not even able to put the ball in play FFS.  I mean, who would want him for even the major league minimum?  He'd hurt your chances, not improve them. 

He may very well go down as the worst Cleveland Indian free agent signing ever.
