Great article and great thread. I always knew I wanted to experience living somewhere outside Ohio. So after college, I moved to DC. It's a tremendous city in so many respects, and I'm very happy I moved here. But since leaving Ohio, my affinity for the state has only grown. I don't know when or if I'll ever move back to the 513, but I can't wait to fly back next week and see all my family and friends. Ohio is home and it's always great to be back.

That video is excellent. If Tennessee manages to be Bama this year, I will be singing that song.

For me, it's seeing those punks in blue gang up on Dontre after the kick return. They completely started that fight, and watching it just makes me want to run in and join the ruckus.

I think high school students should be more focused on academics rather than transferring schools to attend a superior sports program. But who knows, maybe Oak Hill is a great school beyond athletics.

I was in Baltimore last weekend for a Yankee's-O's game, and we pre-gamed at a bar called The Abbey. It was pretty close to the football stadium and there a few other bars in close proximity. I figure if tailgating isn't an option, we should all just meet up and take over one of these bars.

And for those buckeyes residing in the DC area, Rhino's in gtown is where it's at on game days.

I don't think last season was a disappointment at all. Kid came in as a true frosh and made plays. We just had a lot of weapons and options for spreading the ball around. In lieu of Hyde this year, I think he gets a lot more touches and becomes a household name by the end of the season. He's just so electric.

i suppose this could be described as a blitzkrieg offense... amirite?

Comment 08 Jul 2014

My lord... that's 5 goals in < 30 minutes. I've never seen anything like this.

Comment 08 Jul 2014
Lot of talent at WR this year. I expect Devin to remain our deep threat and Dontre to tear it up on the short routes. If Thomas, Greene and Smith can contribute as well, we should have a well balanced offense this fall.

Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush and Vince Young battling for the '05 national championship capped off the best BCS series ever. The the second most exciting national game of all time was set up by the following:

- Orange Bowl: Penn State vs. FSU, Joe Pa vs. Bobby Bowden. Penn State prevails on a FG in triple OT.
- Sugar Bowl: West Virginia vs. Georgia. Down at least 3 TD's, Pat White/Steve Slaton lead a crazy comeback over the dawgs.
- Fiesta Bowl: Ohio State (led by Troy Smith, Santonio Holmes, Teddy Ginn Jr., Anthony Gonzales, AJ Hawk, Bobby Carpenter, etc.) dominate Notre Dame in the desert.

I'll never forget that year, and that win vs ND set up our national champion run the following season.

“We’re encouraging schools to get Wi-Fi if they don’t have it, so their fans can have access to that second screen.”

This is so dumb. If you're lucky enough to be at the game, you don't need to be staring at an iPad (or your phone for that matter). Enjoy the atmosphere. Maybe even interact with those sitting around you.

Dontre is going to blow up this year. Outside of Braxton, he is our #1 play maker.

Comment 30 Jun 2014

South Carolina has also beat Clemson that last few years in a row. I believe we played Clemson in last year's Orange Bowl...

I forgot Urbz use to coach at St. X. That that should help our hand with Hilliard.
