DJ, you could always die in Toledo, better known to many of us in Toledo as Little Detroit. For me, I'm trying to get out of Toledo and move to the Columbus area where my family lives. It's better down there than up here. Also up here, too many TSUN fans for my liking.
Last game wasn't entirely his fault. Dropped passes, no blocking from the offensive OL, etc. If he gets more support on Saturday, he will have a big game against Kent State.
I know the guy in the middle of the photo. He's not very happy about that Notre Dame game.
Correction: Cincy opens its season on Friday night, not Thursday night -- against Toledo at Paul Brown Stadium. But it is their season opener, which is correct. When they play the Buckeyes, that will be only their second game, while it will be Ohio State's fourth.
The game will be shown on ESPNU, for Buckeye fans who want to get a scouting report of sorts on the Bearcats.
Other than having a medical emergency or getting a call about one in your family, or a death in the family, why is the damn thing on in the first place? Can't you live 3 hours without that electronic tether? I keep my cell phone only for those reasons.
Herman is spot-on about the lack of running game. How about all the sacks? The Buckeye Line blocked like the Maginot Line. We have five of the slowest and fattest offensive linemen I've ever seen. Overall about the game, damn embarrassing and sickening to watch. I'm surprised Barrett was able to walk off the field on his own power. When the TV cameras were showing Braxton, he had to be thinking his life was spared by his shoulder surgery.
OSU has 8-4 or 7-5 written all over itself, if that horrible offensive line stays horrible.
The Big Ten should be called the Little 13. I won't count Purdon't. They're worse than the MAC right now and belong in the FCS. And that picture of Delany: what's left of his hair is likely gone today. He pulled all of it out watching the Buckeyes, Sparty and the Wolver-weenies get their asses kicked.
I notice a lot of crowd noise on TV baseball games, but I also notice no one behind home plate or behind the dugouts are saying a word. So I think the TV networks pump in crowd noise to make it sound like the fans are cheering, etc.
Is it true Wolverine fans get a bowl of soup with their winged helmets?
There are still way too many fans of that team up north in Toledo. You will have to carve out a small slice of the Toledo area for those fools. [Don't make it too large, because there are still plenty of smart football fans up here who root for TOSU.] As for the map, the southern part of Lucas County should not be considered Little Detroit. That's the OK part of Lucas County. The area for Toledo definitely is Little Detroit, especially with all the boarded up houses.
He's going to get a lot of time on the scout squad when he come back. He'll see the field on Saturdays from the sideline for the rest of the season.
Having both teams getting together for the alma maters at the end of the game was classy, as well as for a group handshake at the start of the game. That's what makes college football so special and better than the money-grubbing pros. Both team played hard but respected each other. And, of course, the Buckeyes won.
W&M is a FCS team. Hokies should have trampled them. OSU should handle them next week.
Don't care who TSUN is playing, I root for the other team. Period. And I will root for Notre Dame next week to beat the Wolver-weenies.
Buckeye Cable in Toledo added CBS sports channel to its lineup this week, just in time for the game. I wonder how much my bill will go up now.
I have a friend in Chicago who dumped Comcast for ATT. He's in the same lousy spot as all of you posters who have had ATT. He's pissed off at them big time. It's time the FCC started investigating the business practices of ATT and Comcast.
Those white unis have a huge wow factor to them. They look much better than my alma mater Toledo, who wear this light gray color jersey on the road that looks like the jerseys haven't been washed in 6 months.
Dave the Hack has not made any prediction for his favorite college team, the one just north of Toledo. Maybe he thinks it will be the same as last year or a LLLLoyd Carr type 8-4 and doesn't want to make his feelings toward his favorite team public to cause their fans to puke in their lattes. He does try to be even-handed on rare occasions, but I'd say he's 75% Miss-again and 25% The Ohio State University. The Blade also can be a lite version of the Detroit or Ann Arbor snooze papers at times when it comes to shilling for TSUN and the TTUN.
As for Toledo having too many Wolver-weenie fans, I agree. There are far too many traitors here. NW Ohio has a lot of them, period.
Buckeye Cable, BTW, just upgraded to get the CBS cable sports network a few days ago. I wonder how much my bill will increase for it.
I hear the algae is spreading into other parts of Lake Erie. Cleveland beer just might end up like Toledo's.
Seriously, this beer story looks like it was a bunch of cuts and pastes by the writer to find out what beer is good and not good. Did the writer actually drink all the beer he wrote about?
The one thing Meyer can promise Harris is that the Buckeyes' OL will open holes for him, while the TSUN's OL will give him no running room.
Hoke won't name captains until the end of the season.
I'm sure OSU didn't mind the larger crowds for hockey games when the NHL was dark. The more the merrier, as they say. I hope OSU and the Blue Jackets can draw big crowds for all their games this season.
How old is the story about Big Ten ACT scores?
It's just a half bad day. The bad is Braxton hurt. The Browns will still be putrid, even with Johnny Football.
Hope Brax will get well and play again, even if it's next year as a redshirt senior. [I assume that if he's gone for the year, Meyer will apply for a redshirt.] Whatever the verdict is for his shoulder, I still support Meyer. He will figure out what to do best for the team. Go Bucks!
I hope a current or former serviceman/woman gets these tickets. They deserve it for serving our country. As for the rest of us who can't attend the game in person, is the game still on CBS's Sports Network cable channel? And if so, is the game going to be shown in Toledo on Buckeye Cablesystem, even though Buckeye Cable doesn't carry CBS Sports Network?
Looks the guy at MGoBlog was right about the offense he's seen so far: Expect a lot of screen passes. Gardner will have to throw 50 passes every game to win. The running game and O-line are nonexistent.
