Most Cleveland thing ever (from long time Clevelander)



Comment 14 Dec 2014

Did anyone catch when Butch Davis said Miami interviewed Jim Tressel in 1995 to replace Dennis Erickson? I'm not sure I believe the accuracy of that statement given the timing but I guess it's possible. Just seems unlikely.

Boise State is a natural addition in my opinion

Comment 29 Nov 2014

There was a JT/Braxton thread recently where someone touted JT's durability over Braxton and everyone failed to mention JT's historical injury. Yes, I realize this injury is completely unrelated to his old one but to tout his durability over Braxton's was always a wash. Both historically and because it's hard to stay healthy as a QB running the ball in this system all year long.

I'd like to know where Eli Apple was last year for the _ichigan ga_e if he wasn't at the stadiu_. Why would he not have traveled with the tea_?

Also, Spence getting his degree is not a foregone conclusion. As a junior, that will ulti_ately be up to Spence and I'd say those logistics are far fro_ decided.

Obviously hate losing to Michigan and I vaguely remember this day as well. Bad things happen when Ohio State loses to Michigan. All Buckeye fans are in terrible moods for an indefinite amount of time. I watched this Game at Blondies on the UWS of NYC with 2 OSU buddies and a female law school acquaintance who went to UM. I drank the entire Game and barely remember eating anything. The bar was so crowded that we had to stand in a single spot at the front of the bar for the entirety. After we lost, my 2 buddies and I ditched to Michigan girl without saying goodbye and walked to Harry's Burrittos. After sitting down and ordering, we got into an argument about changing your order after you've placed it but before the food has shown up. I was of the opinion you could do so within a reasonable time (can't remember who wanted to change the order or if it was a reasonable time). One buddy (my roommate at the time) got so angry from the argument, he threw money on the table and left before his food showed up. My other friend and I ended up eating our meals in silence and I had my roommates burritos wrapped to go. After eating, my other buddy (may he rest in peace) and I went our separate ways. I remember stomping downtown w a burrito in my hands just being drunk and pissed off at the world. As I crossed a street a car in the far left lane swerved a bit and came pretty close to hitting me. I remember yelling obscenities at the driver. Pedestrians yelling at NYC drivers is common but having the driver pull over, get out of their car and have shouting matches is rare. The driver and I are in each other's face for a minute or 2 before I just said to the guy something to the affect of "This is dumb. I'm drunk. I'm pissed the Buckeyes lost to Michigan. I'm sorry". The driver ended up apologizing as well, telling me to be safe and we actually hugged it out on the street after he pulled over and we had been in each others face. Next I was taxed with still trying to find my way home from UWS/Hell's Kitchen area all the way down to Wall Street. Subway was out of th question cause I didn't have he patience when drunk. Failed at finding a cab while walking for about 30 min. After seeking a few buses pass me, I determined it would be a good idea to take the next bus I saw towards downtown even though I didn't know the route. I was in my early 20s and had been living in NYC about a year and a half. I boarded the bus with my unlimited monthly card and grabbed a seat in the very back. It was tough to see out the window but about 15 minutes later I realized  I had no idea where I was so I did the only thing an immature, drunk 20 year old does when he's in trouble: I called my mom. She was back in Ohio with my dad and said she had been worried about me all day because they knew Ohio State had lost to Michigan and I was drinking. I was sobbing drunkenly and recapping how we lost, the fight w my friends, almost getting hit by a car and being lost on a NYC bus. She advised me to get off the bus at the next stop and find a cab. Luckily that worked and I showed up home hours after The Game with my roommate's burrito still in tow, which I presented to him the next morning with a laugh.

So to recap, for me at least, bad things happen when the Buckeyes lose to Michigan.

If we're having a honest discussion about JT's durability, it's worth mentioning that he missed over a year to a significant knee injury. Fingers crossed this is never an issue again, but it's not like his career has been 100% injury free.

Let's put this win in perspective. Alabama (ranked #3) only beat Arkansas 14-13. The Arkansas team that still doesn't have a conference win in a year and a half under Bert. Happy Valley is a tough road environment especially at night. All that matters is the W. You're not going to blow every team out by 40.

Mannies (aka Blondies) is the best option. Especially for a prime time night game against a "marquee" opponent. It will be packed w a very pro buckeye crowd upstairs. I recommend the wings.
