You can watch the xfiles on Netflix. I seen in the last year every episode up too when it jumped the shark. 

Comment 25 Apr 2015

My take:

1.) Some fans think player are dumb for not signing with Ohio State only because they want them on their team and so they can brag about recruiting. Period. All other arguments are crappy justification to hide, badly, this truth.

2.) If you say this now but didn't say, "Wow the buckeye picked up a recruit who had an offer from FSU. That was dumb of him" last spring then I see that as a moral failing. You can't change your argument based on how it effects your team and be considered a solid person IMHO. I see this all over the world and it causes so many problems. 

3.) Ohio State recruits well because we have so many advantages, but we are not the only one with such advantages. Get over yourselves. We are not the only program to win a national championship in the last 20-years, and there are several programs that can win it this year. In fact, probability is against the Buckeyes repeating. Fact, it is a better bet that they don't repeat. Recruits know this! 

4.) Stop basing your self esteem on this team. Whether the buckeyes win 100-straight or lose 100-straight has no bearing on you; you will still be you. 

That's all. Hopefully we salt of the earth Buckeyes can minimize the damage by the big mouths.

Everyone knows they lost the Civil War because Pickett was overconfident and his men didn't train hard before the charge. Nine out of ten times Pickett would have taken that crest with his superior southern speed. In the end, the south had better soldiers.

I think we in the midwest should prepare for the great migration back. Eventually our water we be an asset, like oil. No way should we sell it now. It has great future economical power.

I am guessing that is not what they said, or if they said it, it was an example or a hyperbole they assume you'd get. If they did then they lack the critical thinking skills to be a teacher. I bet they meant that people coming up with lies will add filler to a conversation to stall as they think the lies up. This is true. " to be honest. . ." Can be an example of filler. But generally, " to be honest" is just a openning phrase. I use it all the time when I am nor lying. So I'd forget that piece of wrong-information; it's wooish.

Are you confusing Beanie Wells with Carlos Hyde? 

Comment 11 Apr 2015

The off-season, when an usually united Buckeye Nation breaks into factions and eats itself: Cleveland/Cincinnati, Young/Old, gotta love it! Coming soon: the Baxtonistas, versus the Barretacrats  versus Cardale-idists.

Great coach, great Buckeye, not a fan of his bullying philosophy but do understand some players thrived under it.

Something I noticed: he demanded discipline and responsibility of his players, and would bash them of being cry babies, ect when they didn't take too it, but when Indiana disciplined him, he acted like the entitled cry babies he once  slammed. Kind of sheds I light on how he actually thinks.

Skyline is vomit...that is all I have to say about this issue.

Younger Buckeye may not remember a 2002 commit name Drushawn Humphrey from Toledo, died his senior year of high school playing a Bball game. Tressel gave his mother a NC ring after the beating the Canes in the Fiesta.

I swear there is a moment at the end of the NC game where Herbie got real quiet and Fowler had too take over and talk a lot. I swear I could hear sniffling as if Herbie was crying tears of joy. Anyone else notice that?

What a nice thing it would be though, if Harbaugh was out recruited by our Lacrosse coach. 

Comment 01 Mar 2015

Yeah we need to legalize marijuana but not they way they suggested--creating a cartel. This is following the precedent set by the casinos where we enshrined in the constitution that a few had a special right that others did not--to run casinos. We shouldn't use the Ohio constitution to grant special rights. 

Comment 28 Feb 2015

Good point.

CP and OSU inc. ( this is my name for the university brass who want to replace true Buckeyes culture with a corporate vision--I am actually thinking about taking UM's thing and calling them 'Ohio') used the tragic Stephanie Hunter disappearance and murder as a PR ploy to put their plan into action. She was abducted on Pearl Alley South of 10th. They used her to make it out like South Campus--which was WAY more popular than some here want to admit, WAY more than today's Gateway which is darn right dead in comparison--was exceedingly dangerous due to the establishments there. That was obvious manipulation of a tragedy; the murderer could had picked anyone up anywhere. They made a huge stink out of that.

But when Brian Schaffer disappeared from the butt Ugly Tuna did we hear the same outrage about the Gateway? No we didn't. That indicates what interest is behind this, and how the Hunter outraged was purely manufactured for effect. (I am not big on conspiracy theories, but there is speculation that the Schaffer affair was covered up, since cameras show him entering the butt ugly tuna and not ever coming out. Covered up to protect interest and not have the Hunter affair come back and bite them. It's out there I admit.) 

Nevertheless, this has always been more about a corporate power grab than about what students want. 

Comment 28 Feb 2015

Funny logic there. You never heard the students who grew up with it complain suggests that the ones that remember what came before did. Therefor the old scene was much better.

There is a difference between not complaining and flat out loving it. When I talk to students today and describe what came before their eyes light up; they wish they were here back them! They say things like " We so missed out," and how " Everything is such a police state anymore." And how they wish to support local more independent business than large chains. 

They ey may not complain but they don't flat out love it. That is a loss; their experience is less than they ones that came before, and they know it.

What it looked like before the prefab diarrhea that spewed from the corporate sphincter poured forth. Organic, historic, character: not the boring, bland, suburban mall which the corny powers that be dig out of their arse, stamp with the corporate logo.
