Yeah, it's pretty bland. Did pretty much A to Z and loved it all...well, except for that one friend in high school who could puke at will, and decided to do so one day on every single entrance to our school. I think it actually caused a few slippage accidents. Wild Bill. Memories of the Seventies. But I had a flair for writing good scripts for competition pieces, and became interested in everything Houdini... a self styled escape artist as a sophomore in high school trying to replicate Houdini escapes...and on to stage magic before being the Air Force Tops In Blue magician who got to sit and talk to BB King at worldwide finals (I lost to a European juggler) to teaching kids English, drama, forensic competition speech to school principal to Antiterrorism Trainer for the Department of Defense...to selling a great new and safe product to gastroenterologists here in Washington D.C...to well, ...the future. After all, I am The Time Traveler.

Wolverines and Spartans are expected to be fierce opponents...but those Lions that say Ni!...just make me chuckle.

Question:  Why does everybody always get an extra week to prepare for the Buckeyes?

Answer:  Because they need it.

And then there's this:

Ohio State fans are increasingly making secret pacts to go to the PS game... in white (with OSU underneath) and change over to OSU colors at halftime....or some other strategic time secretly agreed upon by the huddled masses and cleverly hidden from the Lions.

The thinking apparently was to use the Roman theme, let the Bucks see what it looks like to have the entire Colosseum against you.  A veritable sea of white...angry Roman citizens seeking to soothe their sodden sins with a little violence in the house. 

And after all...Gladiators are supposed to die.

Thinking now as my evil scientist self, I know that PS is expecting OSU colors to show up in the stands, to disrupt the sea of white they plan on unleashing...and yet, where are they?  Where are the Buckeye fans?

Even the sports media guys would be startled at first....they'll be blathering in the booth about the absence of Ohio State fans...perplexed about the inability of even the students to support their team. 

"No, Brent, I don't see a Buckeye in the house!"

It would look a lot like the Colosseum with our guys the gladiators.  Glorious!

And funny as heck.

Has anybody asked you yet?

And then my mind races over the plan...

...oh crap, I have to even pretend to be a Penn State fan?

Would be awesome though to see, punk the announcers and Penn State fans at the same time, whup arse in the actual game, and then for the icing...to possibly put the poor "White Out" to bed for all time!  If they dared to pull it out again, the media would be bringing up the "Roman Games of 2016", reliving the drubbing the Buckeyes pasted onto Penn State that year, yada, yada.

Now that would be funny!

...NFL rules are set up to allow dumpster fires to be put out and turned in to playoff contenders in 2 seasons..."

Can we tap into those rules in Cleveland?

Comment 07 Dec 2015

I have been on this site since January of 2011, and I have never once called any member of this site out for stupidity and general ass-hattery. 

But you, sir...Rill Dill, are simply a whiny, sour, puckered asshole.

Please take yourself up the road to Michigan and join their fan club and hate on the Buckeyes properly.

Comment 06 Dec 2015

Sorry, have to disagree with you, friend.

It's not a matter of sensitivity for me.

We already have enough of that in every facet of life.  Everybody seems to own a pair of panties specifically to get them all in a bunch. 

That's just the way it is.

I'm not personally offended, or particularly angered by Cook's actions...only feel bad for Archie.  He's a cool guy, and I've met him.  Gracious man who takes time to talk with kids.  But sensitive?  Sensitive?  Naw.  People just see it for what it was. 

Disrespect.

Why are we surprised?  It's only a forlorn commentary of our new generation of young adults...not all of them, just enough to make it seem like all of them.

Cook is simply a "me first, me only" kind of guy.  He is arrogant.  Nobody likes arrogance. 

Disrespect is still viewed as what it is.

Comment 06 Dec 2015

Logged in to say this...if somebody noticed this already, sorry...

Cook actually shoves Archie's hand down...he doesn't shake it in the least, and makes what appears to be a purposefully disrespectful gesture rather than a non-thinking "in the moment" fumble.  Watch it in slow motion, and notice the small details of the human body that give away the intents of the heart.

Cook meant it to be specifically disrespectful to the Buckeye legend, and that's just sad.  Archie Griffin is a man's man, and a perfect gentleman.  He even patted Cook's hand from behind the guy, smiling graciously through it all.  God bless you, Archie!

Shame, and more shame on you, Conner Cook. 

Be wary...when Karma comes, it comes with teeth bared.

And maybe a buckeye in its pocket.

Comment 13 Oct 2015

I am very excited for this game, as I will be watching it from the Waikiki Beach Hilton in Honolulu!

Comment 12 Oct 2015

Well, Sally, you just keep on hanging your hat on "good losses", because come November, you will have another one.

I do hope you will use that loss to Ohio State as a rallying cry that you are back!

Woo hoo!

Comment 12 Oct 2015

The Bucks will not fall in the poll unless a loss comes our way.  As the season progresses, and we show improvement steadily, it would be foolish to place anyone, and I mean anyone, ahead of the Buckeyes.  Absolutely NONE of the undefeated teams have scorched every single team they played.  The Weanies up north have a loss.  There are no dominating teams at this point...end of story.

Comment 11 Oct 2015

Ha ha!  So much for your calming zen, huh friend?

I hear ya.  But one thing I do know for sure...Meyer is keeping an awful lot of things hidden from film.  It's just how he operates.  If he can keep special plays wrapped in secrecy until absolutely necessary, he will do that.  We haven't seen any trickery or complicated sets yet, but they are being worked on.

The team seems, instead, to be doing exactly like the OP suggests...throwing pasta at a wall to see what sticks.  And that's fine, really.  By the end of the season when we will be facing stiffer competition, the coaching staff will go look at that pasta-stricken wall and pull down exactly the plays they need.

Return to zen.

Comment 11 Oct 2015

BigBlue,

I have never felt the need to wander over to that eye sore that is MGoBlog and comment...ever.

I understand a few more of you hairy creatures will begin crawling over here and foaming at the mouth about how improved you are now.  And that's just fine, since Eleven Warriors permits you to enter as long as you show a little respect being out of your hole, but remember you are a visitor here, and you are from the stinkiest state in the union, and you do live under the skirts of Ann Arbor, that old ugly whore, so when she lets you wander, be sure to wipe the sweet aroma of the Buckeye state off your hastily shaven ass so you will be accepted in the hell hole to the north when you return.

And by the way, there was no "screaming" from me, that was just the jostling for the weasel prod I keep by my porch.

Do you feel it?

Now please quit turning my lawn all brown...get off it and scurry on home.

Comment 11 Oct 2015

Dear OP,

Didn't this week mark the fact that we now stand alone at 102 weeks ranked as #1 all-time, with Oklahoma now second place at 101?

Also...maybe it's time to just suspend upvoting or downvoting, because a number of Buckeye fans don't seem to understand that they mean absolutely nothing!

Comment 10 Oct 2015

And hopefully you wont start sucking again until we stomp your shaven asses in November.  Then you can crawl back up into the tree holes you live in.

Comment 10 Oct 2015

funny you wolver weanies get all bold when you have a little success.  You come over here and spout while you can.  Why not just shut your yapper till the Game?  If you come away with a win, then spit your crap.  Until then, go back to mgoblowblog and wipe each other's arses.

In short, get off my lawn and go back to the trailer park.

Comment 04 Oct 2015

Buckdubbs,

There are plenty of us who appreciate what you do with these vids.  Please accept our apology for those that don't.

Thank you, good sir.

Comment 04 Oct 2015

It was also funny to see that nearly nobody retweeted or was following these imbecile tweeters.  They basically are tweeting out to nobody...just to see their own tweets, really.

They are the epitome of irrelevance. 

It would be nice for a couple of thousand fans to blow their stupid accounts up with "shame on you" answers.

Comment 04 Oct 2015

I find it extremely entertaining that there really are so many fans (of ALL teams) who are fair weather, and screeching at the slightest letups.  I wonder how many other teams in the country would take 5-0 while not looking like the prom queen we thought we were going into the season at #1.

Even if the Buckeyes fall to #4 with ugly wins (barring any losses) throughout the season, I am perfectly happy to be in a position to once again get a shot in the playoffs.  It's a whole new era.  We really do need to step back and just enjoy the new seasons in this format.

I will say that I am embarrassed by the so called fans who are throwing insults at the coaches (Warinner, for example) and tweeting at the players in a manner that is degrading to anybody.  Extremely embarrassed.  This just isn't what a loyal fan of a team does.  I suspect that (hopefully) a majority of these idiots are actually trolls from other teams who just want to muddy the waters.

I appeal to true fans to stop doing these things.

I also appeal to Eleven Warriors to police the horrible comments such as were given in the open game thread.  Those commenters have, in my opinion, forfeited their rights to comment, if they begin throwing racial and social slurs around.  I did not comment in the open thread, and in fact, got out of there, as it was looking like a brawl instead of a gathering of loyal Buckeye fans.

This is not the place for that nonsense.  I suggest we CLEAN HOUSE.

Comment 27 Sep 2015

I've been on this site for four years, and I don't remember a time when we as fans had so much complaining about wins, about imperfect games, and about coaching decisions.

I admit I don't always read all the comments because I come here for articles for the most part.

But I have to say that I am somewhat perplexed at the naysayers who come out of the woodwork at every subpar performance.  Are we really that shallow and insecure as a fan base that we cry out "the sky is falling" every time we feel a drop of rain?

I simply ask the real fans to show a little maturity and calmness in the inevitable onslaught this year by trolls such as Gofor2.

I did just read all of Gofor2's comments and have to say that if this guy is an Ohio State fan, then he is the most pessimistic and grumpy fan I have every seen.  I think he is a thinly disguised SEC troll or maybe a Michigan fan.  He simply cannot be a real Ohio State fan.

Please...let's enjoy the season and watch as this iteration of the Buckeyes goes on to prove that while back to back national championships are difficult, improbable, and unlikely...they are indeed possible.

This is the year of that possibility.
