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.
  • NFL TEAM: Whatever team has the most Buckeyes on their roste

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.

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.

I'm part Cherokee and my father used to work with various tribes in New Mexico. No one in my family cares about this stuff. My father has never met anyone on a reservation who cares about this stuff. The only people I ever met who cared about this were the white students in a certain undergrad class at OSU. This is the epitome of political correctness run amok.

I have a bed liner too, along with the same snap cover I've been using for over 15 years. 

I always shake my head at guys with hardcovers down here in FL. If you need a hardcover down here or need a hardcover up north during the summer months, just go get an SUV and be done with it.

Comment 09 May 2015

Depends on what you haul and how often you haul it. I use my truck bed 2-3 times a month and there's no way I'd ever buy a hardtop.

Ive been using the snap cover for over 15 years and it's perfect. Its lightweight so I can take the entire cover off by myself at anytime and can dissemble/reassemble the whole thing (including the mounting brackets) in a minute or two.

The character arc for the originals has been dramatic. If you're expecting constant terror, explosions, etc., you probably haven't noticed.

In one of the 1st episodes, Rick apologizes to a zombie simply for the fact that it's a zombie. In the most recent episode Rick has no hesitation in executing a living person.

Comment 27 Feb 2015

critics are calling the Tyrese episode one of the series' best. It was the first to provide a first person viewpoint of what it's like to be on your way to zombiehood.

As for the OP, Kirkman said early on that the show was intended to last 5 seasons.

Comment 15 Feb 2015

Rewatch the Bama game. Someone is responsible for several of Bama's big plays and it wasn't Bell........  It's the same guy who gave up the long TD vs Oregon.

I love Powell and think he could be really good someday, but I will accept bets from anyone who thinks he's going pro early.  the odds of his playing time decreasing this fall > the odds of him turning pro.

Look up the write ups from other teams' break down of our defense. The writeup from an Oregon analyst basically said that Bell was everything you could want in a safety, with Powell being the exact opposite.

Comment 09 Feb 2015

I dated a catholic girl who wore Notre Dame stuff on campus all the time and had a friend who wore his UTenn hat all the time. Nobody gave a damn.

IIRC either Fickell or Vrabel used to wear a Bama hat during their playing days at OSU. It was their lucky hat that they'd had since high school. Nobody gave a damn.

people turning this into a big deal are weak.

Comment 09 Feb 2015

as more teams gravitate towards the spread, the number of plays run by an offense could increase. That would increase total tackles per game; we'll see if those are spread out among teammates or certain players who rise above.

I also wonder if there are more defensive substitutions now than in the past.
