I am not saying anyone should be benched. Nor am I saying anyone should be fired. All I am saying is that if we don't start playing better, we will be handed our first loss by an inferior team. It isn't unreasonable for fans to expect more out of their teams, win or lose. The Great Urban himself is not content with the level of play from our very talented team. And I only word it that way because of the pedestal that he has been put on by some people, I greatly respect Urban and would not trade him for any other coach, but as I said before, he isn't infallible. Call me a traitor, a sunny day fan, or whatever you will, but these are the facts, regardless of our record at this point.

I will say that the people running around here screaming for the heads of players and/or coaches do need to relax. We got the win, we got another week to prepare. I just hope everything clicks before it is too late.  BTW, GO BUCKS!

I agree with the OP. This does not look like a team that is defending the National Title (Well, it does in fact look like Florida St. last year.) We are 5-0, and I am happy about that, but there are plenty of wrinkles that need ironed out, AND SOON. Our boys have not looked dominant in any of these games yet, and it wasn't a scheme change that won the game today, it was Zeke having an outstanding 2nd half. IU moved the ball better than us, and just looked like the better team all day. They just whiffed on a couple run stops.

I do not claim to know what is needed to become the team that we are. I trust in Urban, but he isn't infallible. Are we trying too hard to get all of our superstars touches? Should we change over to JT (I do have a huge man-crush on him since last year)? Are we counting on the wrong guy for play-calling? Are we playing to the caliber of our opponents? Who knows? Could be none, or all of these. All I do know is, if we don't start looking like a team that is stacked with "an embarrassment of riches" we are going to get exposed, and quickly!

Ricky - "just how drunk are you?"

Lahey - "Bout 6 outta 10."

Pure comedic genius!

I can't watch with my father's new wife. She is absolutely the worst. She thinks every play is a late hit, pass interference, holding, or anything if we don't score on that play. I almost feel like I'm not a fan because I have to explain each time why the other team is allowed to block, hit, knock down passes, or just allowed to try to keep us from scoring. Good thing is, it might be a quiet year for her this year, we should score LOADS.

The whole team is lucky to not be suspended due to all of the competition they smoked last year.

Had that happen to my 05 Mazda 6. Turned out to be a MAF sensor. Hopefully you get back on the road quickly, nothing worse than a breakdown on the road.

This is the one time I have ever been to the shoe. My wife and I (girlfriend at the time) went to visit her brother who lived in Columbus. We watched the game (2009 vs Illinois) at a movie theatre that showed the game. I don't remember the name of the theatre, but I do remember that is when my wife became a fan for the good guys (she has watched every game with me since then). Before we left, I asked my future brother in law to show me the stadium, We went, he found an open gate, we snuck in and I took this

 picture. Not too bad of a pic from an old camera phone. You can see my wife and sister in law down in the lower right part of the pic. Now I just need to see it full, with gobs of points for us on the scoreboard. LOL

Hang out with your wang out. or Chill out with drill out.

When I was leaving, I would say - I'm out like a fat girl in dodgeball.

I have more, but they are fairly vulgar.

My buddy does have a couple of pick-up lines that I have never heard before though. 

Hey baby, wanna go home with me because my blow up doll is so old it has so much duct tape it looks like a hostage. Or.

Hey baby, wanna go halfsies on a bastard.

I know, I know, I will show myself the door now.

1978 King Cobra, 302, 4 speed, AC, and T-tops, (but had a blown motor). Bought it when I was 14 for 400$, never got to drive it. Traded it in on a 65 Falcon 2 weeks before I turned 16. Should have kept it and fixed the motor. The Falcon was pretty, but not very reliable.

I'm truly glad that this post was taken the way it was meant, I was trying hard to not sound like a weirdo/stalker. LOL

Glandorf is still there, hopefully you are talking about the Bombshelter (only the best pizza within 50 miles).

Congrats! I may not know you, but I am proud of you! Addiction is a hard thing. I have seen the depths that it can take someone. Like it was stated before, surround yourself with strong clean people and if you ever need an ear, let me know. God Bless!

I wish I could leave my job. I can't, but possibly my wife can. She has a medical condition that keeps her from being able to stand for long periods. She was taken off of work for two months and we just got a letter from her short term disability that she was denied. Which is whole other rant, like Lupus goes away. But anyway, I told my wife that she should start making authentic mexican dinners and selling them. I took an order for 100 dinners where I work. If things go well, we are talking about getting her a food truck to sell mexican food right off of the truck.

This one is a little weak, but I still snicker when I tell it.

A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel coming out of his zipper. The bartender sees him and says to him "Hey, do you know you have a steering wheel coming out of your zipper?" To which the pirate replies (in your best pirate voice) "Aye, it's driving me nuts".

An older couple were having trouble remembering things so they went to the doctor to see if anything could be done. They told the doctor their problem and he told them there wasn't really anything that he could do so he advised them to start writing everything down. Later that night, while watching tv together. The old man decides he wants a bowl of ice cream. He gets up and starts for the kitchen when his wife asks him where he is off to. He replies that he is going to get some ice cream from the freezer and she asks him if he could get her some also. He tells her yes and she says "you better write it down". He tells her that he doesn't need to write it down, and then she tells him he should because she wants chocolate syrup on hers. He tells her he has it under control. But she says " you better write it down, because I want nuts on it also. He tells her annoyedly "I got it, ice cream, syrup, nuts. No problem". After about 20 minutes and a lot of commotion from the kitchen, he walks over to her and hands her a plate with 2 eggs over easy, four slices of bacon and a nice sized helping of hash browns. She looks at the plate, then looks up at him disgustedly and says "See, I knew you would forget the toast".

Gallia/Beth you are both correct, XBMC was started as a media player, but being open source, it has evolved into what Gallia is using it for. I myself use MediaPortal for my HTPC.

Running up the score??? Really?? What did they want us to do? We already had our third string QB in.

Comment 07 Dec 2014

Before tonight, I was one of those that would rather have not seen Tosu go to the playoffs if it was a close win tonight. I think that there are some real powerhouses out there and if the Buckeyes were to go and have a game like some of our last ones with the simple mistakes, muffed punts, dropped punts, off sides at the absolute worst time, we were going to get beat and then we have to hear for another year about how overrrated we were. After watching tonights game, I want nothing more than to see Tosu go out there and prove themselves to be the best. If they have two more games like tonight, there isn't anyone in college, and probably a few in the NFL who can beat them. They loked absolutely amazing in all aspects of the game and I am SOOOO proud to be a Buckeye right now. O-H!!!
