Greetings Earth Friends of an Ancient Plane of Existence!

Time Traveler here.

I did the kind thing and traveled back to December Fourth, 2016 (exactly one month from your current timeline), and won't, of course, upset the very fabric of history by telling you all...(we couldn't abide you farm owners rushing to the bookies and betting them, could we?)...but I will tell you that a coming victory over a certain unnamed collection of individual football players in a northwesterly direction from you will vault your Buckeyes back into the fray.

So fret not, and again, I say, fret you not...or as my dyslexic and mirror-obsessed alter ego might say..."ton terf!"

Stand tall, my nut-rooted ancient ancestors of Buckeye lineage!  Feel free to argue all the points of the season incessantly unto ad nauseam, delighting the senses. The exercise is healthy for your teeth and gums (recent research has discovered), and makes for lively workplace violence-inducing discussion. 

But in the end, the youngest team in NCAA college football this year walks away with the College Football Na...

Oh my.  I may have said too much already. 

Please.  Move along. 

Nothing to see here.  Those are not the Droids you are looking for.

Tulsa may look more vanilla, but so did Bowling Green.  It wasn't an aggressive game plan that got the 77 points.  It was some young men who were very, very hungry to prove themselves and get more playing time.

i think we will see more of the same with Tulsa as these young players stretch to perform to a degree that gets noticed at Ohio State.

And remember, game day for the Buckeyes is a reward for a great job in practice.  Each unit faces off with one of the best units in the country every day!

Buckle in Buckeyes!  This will be a very special season in which Ohio State will do twice in three years what has never been done!

Logged in to say that actually, once I realized UM was Urban, it hit me as funny.

Urban Meyer has single-handedly eclipsed the other UM we love to hate!

What a nice way to finally use those two letters together!

Comment 02 Aug 2016

Look, I just read this and had to log in to say something.  If it's already been said...then sorry, I'll get off your lawn...

...But come on, if you're going to compete at Ohio State, it is a known quantity that TEAM trumps Guy.  Urban Meyer has made that perfectly clear, to all his kids.  Even quarterbacks.  Take a lesson, kids, from a Guy like J.T. Barrett.  He's a Guy who sacrificed for TEAM, remained humble, and now leads them to the 2016 Undisputed Third National Championship of the Playoff Era.

If you compete at Ohio State, it's because you bought J.T.

And if you stay committed, it's because you in earnest...believe you can win a lead a TEAM like the Ohio State Buckeyes!

So as a recruit...let's just say you better not be afraid of taking on the prove that you are the best.

That's when a promising lad...becomes a Buckeye. And it isn't just on the field.  From what I've seen of Urban Meyer so far, he's been about as caring of these young men as any coach I see in college football today.  His family takes in these kids, makes them friends for life by treating them as fairly as any good father would.

But still, it's on the table from the start.  We recruit the best to play the practice! 

So when we get to the game, it's just preparing for another brutal practice!

Competition is not just good at Ohio State. 

It is expected.

Comment 28 Jun 2016
Well, I have it on good authority from The Time Traveler that Ohio State is going to shock the world...again. A group of young and talented kids with the least experience of any team they might face this going to hold up their second national championship trophy. No scarlety gray goggles here, just know enough to listen when the guy from the 31st century comes calling. Like he said in August of 2014, "Hang on to your hats, Buckeyes, cause the ride's gonna be guuuuud!"
Comment 19 Apr 2016

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 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. 


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


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.
