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 selling a great new and safe product to gastroenterologists here in Washington well, ...the future. After all, I am The Time Traveler.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Absolutely the win over Miami for the National Championship...aww, append that to second place. The Magical Year of 2014 edges it out.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Archie Griffin. Don't think that will ever change. Archie Griffin is simply a great man.
  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL PLAYER: Aaron Craft. Fun to watch.
  • NFL TEAM: Cleveland Browns

  • NBA TEAM: None-just follow the Buckeyes in the NBA
  • MLB TEAM: Cincinnati Reds
  • SOCCER TEAM: Don't watch unless forced to.

Again, firefighter...what exactly does the an mean in anOSU?

I'm curious if it is a purposeful snide attachment to the name?

Yes, curious, I am.

Comment 30 Aug 2015

Who exactly is anOSU?  Are you just trying to taunt THE OSU with an implied notion that we are just another OSU?  Like Oklahoma State or Oregon State?

If so, go back to putting out fires, not starting them.

I don't want to pop any Hokie bubbles, as I've enjoyed their visits here and the respectful way they contribute, but...

...their team is not facing the same Buckeye team of recent yesteryear.  Without expounding on the improvements from 2014, the team trotting out into the limelight on 7 September is nine units strong and will unleash an ass-lashing of immense proportion.  Yes, I respect Tech's game, but its fans will come to understand that the bear defense of last year only served to awaken...the Big Bear. 

The poking and prodding has gone on long enough..."ha, ha, the undisputed national champions were beat by a team that in turn was pummeled by pansies." 

Don't think that righting that horrific wrong doesn't play into the game strategy the second time around.  Urban Meyer and his team clawed their way through tragedy, loss, and insurmountable odds to capture the summit of college football...and now... is time for a mauling.

I think we will see this defense show the results of maturity this year.  Buckeye Nation has been longing for a true return to the Silver Bullet Era, and I believe we are going to see that...and more, this year.  The progression last year from start to finish was just insane, and if the trajectory holds, this will be a very special season.

Brace yourself.

Hell and High Water are both on their way.

I don't see why all the focus is on the Bear Front.

1. Our O line was a large factor in the failure to get time to throw.  It is stout now.

2. Foster has good corners who would be thriving in any defense.  This hasn't changed.

3.  Ohio State was caught at a bad time in that it had focused a lot on the triple option of Navy to open the year.  Virginia Tech is the first up for this year, and more focus has been put on them.

4.  Barrett was green, and his decision-making wasn't fine tuned.  He is a fine-tuned machine now.

5.  The Bear Front went on last year to show it wasn't really all that hot by losing to teams it should not have.  This year, they are a little more of a veteran team, but will still lose at least three games.

6.  Revenge.  Never forget Revenge.  I know many are predicting a close one.  Ohio State will wear down the VT squad and win by no less than three touchdowns.

Good luck to him.  The video was his once-in-a-lifetime spotlight for a college choice, so there shouldn't be any problem with it at all.  I didn't really see the "me, me" aspect of the video, and actually hope he takes some value to Blue...stumbling only once a year when he hits a Scarlet Wall.

Comment 27 Aug 2015

What are you basing this on?  What you hear?  Do you actually know Herbie?  Or are you just wanting to be contrary to stir it up a little bit?

I've personally spoken to Kirk Herbstreit and I've never found him to be "dickish" in any form of the word, so maybe you should respect the job he has to do on a national sports show.  Herbie is a Buckeye, and people like you saying it aint so will change the opinion of exactly nobody.

"...full range of emotions..."

You said it, bro.  As for me, I'm the same way...wish he had been more responsive during those trashing years, but isn't going to ruin my day.  I do like his coverage on game days more than most of the least he speaks intelligently. 

In short, I have no problem with Kirk.

Excellent article! 

I come to this site with trepidation every day, hoping that I don't see some injury report or suspension announcement.  It's happening everywhere else, and because we've had such a great off season, my fear is that it may catch up with us.

Yay!  One more day in which it hasn't!

Comment 19 Aug 2015

That would be a great idea, but I wouldn't want to spend the money on those shirts for the one day of wearing they would get.

Comment 18 Aug 2015

Hey, you guys are certainly a lot of help.

I like the leftover idea, but I don't think it would be a hit with family.

And as far as the Bert picture, that would go too far beyond humor and into felony cruelty.

Sorry Alhan, fat-fingered you down.  Somebody please cancel my finger inattention?

I was going to say that right now TTUN is that classic plane wrecking into a train on a bridge directly over a school for the handicapped.
