I went on a vacation to the south this past May and it was mostly Bulldog country but I still saw tons of tOSU stickers everywhere. Made me proud. That and the fact that those Bulldog fans can't really talk any trash to us since they flat out refused to play us!

Happy 4th Everyone! Thanks to all the soldiers who continue to make our freedom possible!

Go Bucks!

Agreed. Only thing I really like about world are where they show the nostalgic parts of Jurassic Park. And even then (SPOILER ALERT) I get a little miffed at the idea that batteries would have lasted 20 years in those night vision goggles.

My wife bought the Jeni's cookbook and has been making Dark Chocolate and Buckeye State "Jeni's" for quite some time now at home at, honestly, a third of the cost! Not even sure I need to buy Jeni's again but I might just to help a local business stay afloat.

They've always been a passing team primarily and it sounds like they've got a potentially good quarterback for a change. I have stated tons of times on here how much I am looking forward to this game. I know it'll be a fun game and I hope that the Hawaii team sees just how much Aloha Ohio has!

Comment 12 Jun 2015

I can tell you from the few games that were televised that I got to watch last season they are a primarily passing offense for sure. They most certainly don't have the ability to push our Defensive line around much but they will force us to spread the field a bit to account for their numerous passing plays. They have been explosive at times but can't seem to keep it together for an entire game. Should still be a fun game to watch and just seeing the Hawaii team do the traditional Haka before a game, as a fan of football, makes me proud because that is, thanks to them, a Hawaiian football tradition.

Been waiting a long time for this game to happen, being that I own some land in Hawaii and go there often. Problem is I wanted 50 yard line seats on the Hawaii side and I cannot believe how expensive they are! I was even planning on wearing some kind of hybrid Hawaii/OSU jersey for the fun of it!

I will admit it's been a long time since I've been to a game but holy shit... it's like $2000 per ticket on the site I was looking at and that kind of money is money I set aside to afford the annual Hawaii trips in the first place!

Comment 07 Jun 2015

Obviously I am looking forward to this game. Not overly confident or cocky though. I know they will bring it. They have nothing to lose again and everything to gain. We have a ton of things in our favor this time around and, one of the key things this time is that we won't see the team wasting weeks of practice preparing for a stupid Navy scheme. They'll be preparing for VT straight on and honestly that probably is the best way for this team to start 2015. This may sound stupid to some but they'd also best be ready for Hawaii. They don't get a full week off between games and Hawaii is actually dangerous in the air (albeit in spurts, and they tend to beat themselves more than anything).

No reason to duck, unless you're an Oregon fan. Rush is one of my top bands too. Iron Maiden is actually my favorite, as made obvious by my username, but I have room for U2 in there and like I said, their concert in the shoe was incredible. Now if we could only get Rush and/or Maiden to play the 'Shoe that would top everything ever in the history of music!

Oh, but, as for AC/DC. I saw them live in the late 80's and I was a fan but just couldn't listen to them much anymore after hearing that raspy voice live for 2 hours.

Somehow I believed he would stay and I am glad he is. 2 questions though, just out of curiosity. Is there a deadline for a graduate transfer in general? And does a graduate student get the same full scholarship treatment when they continue to play football as in this situation, or is it only paid for the year they play? Anyone know?

Not gonna lie that pic of the skyline looks really delicious and I would be more than happy to eat that too. Unfortunately I was burned too many times by my local skyline (Gahanna) to ever try anything from them again. I guess next time I find myself in Cincy I will have to give it another chance.

I laughed at first but this could backfire on us. Just imagine if FSU or Alabama had done that during what was otherwise a very classy ceremony. I hope the media doesn't pick up on this and turn it into something or this could be a smear on tOSU we do not need.

Comment 20 Apr 2015

Proud of all of them but also relieved that Eze-E didn't try doing his salmoning thing on the POTUS. We don't need secret service trying to tackle him now too - the secret service has had too many embarassing moments already without that!

Comment 17 Apr 2015

I will check out some highlights but I never really can get into the Spring stuff for some reason. I guess I'm not as into Bucks vs Bucks as I am into Bucks Destroying the world.

Comment 09 Apr 2015

Personally I want to see Hawaii in the home opener rather than Cincinnati or anyone else but that is because I've literally waited 20 years for this to happen and I am excited about it. 

However I was looking at tickets for the Hawaii game and it's not looking like I'm going to get to go. I want to be in section 22AA but they're literally charging $1100 per ticket!?!?!  For the Hawaii game that everyone seems to disrespect!?!?! What gives? Anyone know where I can get awesome seats on the 50 yard line without paying the price of an actual ticket to Hawaii?

Comment 08 Apr 2015

Great point about delivery. They would be an even bigger threat to all pizza if they did that.

Comment 08 Apr 2015

Shaking my head at Max and Erma winning over Brutus. It was rigged!

As for pizza, I will admit that I haven't had hound dogs so I cannot really vote in this one but I like a good Ange's pizza with Massey's close behind. But for my money I wish that Kraus' Pizza would open up down here so I don't have to go to Massillon every time I want to get the best pizza in America!

That RV is the ultimate tailgate machine. You pull up in that thing and everyone takes notice cause they can tell you don't mess around. But if I had that kind of money to spare I'm not gonna lie, I'd be buying one of those Tesla's.
