I think '05 or '10 were Tressel's best teams, and I agree, the '14 beats either.
Sounds like a no-brainer!
I would watch every episode of American History with Mickey Marotti and Kerry Coombs
I'd be surprised if Ohio State wins 9 games too. Pretty sure not for the same reasons.
Happy Friday, all!
Or "Pobody's Nerfect."
Before Chris Jent's return, my thought for the next basketball coach was Keith Dambrot, for his success and of course, his ties to LeBron James. Now, who knows. I'd be good either way.
Thanks for the mailbag, great work as always!
I remember leaving the Shoe and stopping in Little Bar (well, outside the door...place was jam-packed) and going nuts when that field goal was blocked. I think of it every time I pass that place! Happy Friday, everyone!
Damn, very unfortunate news. Get well soon, Stephen!
The ring and that jersey - originally given to his coach - were eventually both culled and listed among Tressel’s NCAA transgressions. Andy Geiger gave Tressel a letter of reprimand for the gestures that remained in his personnel file until his termination. Ten years after Dru’s death the ring Tressel gave his mother and the jersey he never wore were used as props during the Tatgate scandal without any context to demonstrate how Tressel brazenly violated NCAA rules.
Unbelievable. Well, actually, no it isn't.
I didn't know this story, or remember Dru's name. I was a year ahead of him in school, can't believe I was so unaware. Thanks for the story, Jeremy and Ramzy. RIP Dru.
Me too. I will burn every orange and brown piece of clothing I have if the Browns pick that jackass.
Bikeditos...that's gold Jerry, gold.
Also, fairly certain Lee wouldn't have ever seen the field if he were afraid of contact. Bit of a prerequisite for the position of linebacker.
"And until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand." To Will. RIP, big man.
I'm late to the party here, but I say get the kid a whaaburger and some french cries.
Two things I've been taught: Don't ask questions you don't want answers to, and don't ask questions you already know the answers to.
Collections is the worst. I did it for about two years out of college, learned lots of life lessons though! No better place to see the absolute worst in people.
"Stick-to-itiveness" is one of the dumbest, laziest phrases out there. Try some vocabulary, like "persistence" or "tenacity." That ranks up there with "guess-timate" for me. You all can kindly get off my lawn now.
I will cherish this moment forever.
Would love to see Andre in scarlet and gray after he leads my alma mater to the state title! Go Cats!
Thank you, DJ, for also finding the Warriors insufferable. The Spurs used to be the whiniest sports team in existence, but watch the Warriors. I've never seen guys do that petulant stomp-away after a completely blatant foul call as much as Green, Barnes, Thompson, and the rest do (but particularly those 3). They've worn out their welcome as the fun-loving, amazing to watch team. Sparty and the Warriors have very quickly ascended to the top of my list of least favorite teams.
Said it before the Cotton Bowl, I'll say it again: We don't give a damn for the WHOLE state of *ichigan. Go Bucks!
I have heard that term thrown around, particularly because my mom was in the Owls sorority at Otterbein. She said they did indeed call it that, but she says it was for her and her sisters, haha!
I had several friends who were education majors, I'm sure we crossed paths! Hope they're doing well.
Hey, fellow Westerville-ian! (Westerville-ite?) My first memories of Bob are announcing Otterbein basketball games that my dad and I went to when I was a kid, then again as an Otterbein student. I was a freshman during that magical 2001-02 season when they won the title. I've gotten to talk to him a couple times, very nice and personable guy.
And, like Bob, I've known the words to Carmen Ohio since I was 5 but struggle with the Otterbein Love Song!
Shell station at Polaris and Orion (Worthington-Galena) was at $1.45 last night. It's a beautiful thing, I still had half a tank but topped off anyway!
