I proudly walk on 2 legs but this could be subject to change as I age. I enjoy both eating and drinking.
In high school I made a New Year's resolution not to eat anything purple. 25 years later, so far so good.
Sad faced clowns are KGB operatives meant to confuse us while they do spy stuff.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: 13-13 tie vs Michigan. In the student section. Crowd going bananas. Years later I realized how sad it was that we were so pumped about tying Michigan.

Anybody know who runs the scoreboard in Ohio Stadium? Some variation of this needs to be played during games.

The Milton Bradley Gamemaster series:

Axis & Allies (WWII)

Broadsides and Boarding Parties (pirates)

Fortress America (futuristic invasion of America)

Conquest of the Empire (Roman Empire)

Shogun (feudal Japan)

then Risk and Stratego of course.

This isn't ESPN cost cutting. They tried to keep him. WaPo article says he's likely going to Fox Sports.

No Woodyson, fans who want to ignore the disaster Conley was on the field. 

You're selling our NC champion Head Coach with the Psychology degree a little short. He preaches nonstop about competition and yet you think he's handing the job the Conley - essentially announcing the competition is over? I have a nice bridge to sell you.

Played against Brad in the premier league back in high school. Was better at 17 than any keeper I faced in college including a guy who ended up in the MLS. Absolutely intimidating. 

Comment 10 Jul 2015

The altercation between Vrabel and UM was reported on and confirmed by a premium site a long time ago. I've long since forgotten the details.

as for skipping things like the community service the players do, if you say you're gonna be there then skip out, you're gonna have a hard time.

Thank god 21 was removed, now they gotta get dreadlock dude off the pitch. No contribution whatsoever. 

Comment 07 Jul 2015

This is ugly soccer. Garbage play all over the place. 21 in particular is playing himself right out of a job.

Before College Gaemday existed, Chris Fowler hosted a weekly show on high school.sports and he always ended with a segment on unusual mascots. 

My favorites were the Nimrods and the Satans. Too bad the PC police have since wiped out the Satans nickname.

So there are people who are stressing over this guy? Why?

1. He was a long shot from the beginning. If anything, he's similar to Sweat (sp) last year. Highly rated guy that wasn't ever serious about coming to OSU. It's noteworthy that his recruitment progressed far enough to garner a visit.

2. And don't forget: part of OSU's recruiting pitch is telling recruits that OSU isn't for everyone. 

3. There's no such thing as a must get recruit. Remember when Ondre Pipkins committed to UM? He was a highly rated guy (247 had him rated 97 IIRC) who didn't see much playing time, got injured, and eventually forced out.

Ramzy is the main reason I come to 11w.

I don't know how he hasn't been picked up by somebody like SI or The Sporting News.

CanUKBuck - Jones stopped going to practice last Monday, didn't tell anyone why, refused to return Ted Ginn's and Urban's phone calls when they tried to find out what was going on, and later on said something to the effect of 'F the Buckeyes'.

Immature. Classless. Don't hate the guy but I'm definitely not going to wish him well either.

Comment 20 Jun 2015

I'm a bit surprised by so many wishing him well, but to each their own I guess.

if my father abruptly walked out, refusing to return my mother's phone calls, telling me 'F you and your mother' on his way out the door, I sure as hell wouldn't be wishing him well. 

Jones is responsible for his actions regardless of the actions of others.

Sometimes a person acts like a jerk because they are a jerk.

There are bunch of partying athletes from the 70's and 80's. But if there was a Partier Hall of Fame, Andre the Giant would have his own wing. 

He could probably out-consume everyone else mentioned in this thread combined, and still be sober enough to drive them all home.

Comment 16 Jun 2015

while I disagree with the tone of what ZekeGOAT said, there are some uncomfortable things that we shouldn't mindlessly ignore with DV's.

Braxton regularly predetermined his reads in the read option.

Braxton didn't utilize the playmakers around him like Kenny, JT or even Cardale did.

Braxton appeared fragile, or at least melodramatic. Compare JT's reaction to a broken bone vs UM to Braxton's reaction after an awkward fall at MSU in 2012. He reacted like he'd been shot or something; then a couple plays later he's back in the game.

He's not a vocal leader. Urban himself brought this up on more than one occasion. If we were talking about another position group then it wouldn't be a big deal.

This is just my observation.....He seemed disassociated from the team during the season. Anybody remember Urban, while broadcasting an OSU game for ESPN, wondering why the heck Braxton didn't have a headset on whenever he came to the sideline? Last season, I watched to see if Braxton stayed involved by at least keeping a headset on; I didn't see him with a headset once. That's like going to class all semester but sleeping through every lecture. Wasted opportunity.
