Thank God I'm not alone in feeling that Cracker Barrel is awful!

Bob Evans is only a tick above them in quality as far as I'm concerned and both are sodium laden artery cloggers in my book! Stay clear!

I think we all just figured this team would make it look easy at least up to this point of this season after what we all witnessed last year. Hell, even after what we witnessed, save for the 2nd qtr, against VT this season! I have no idea what the hell is exactly broken but I trust that Urban will get it figured out. I think the Maryland game is a good opportunity for that but I think I speak for everyone when I say that we should expect to see a team that at least works like a more well-oiled machine than they have. When IU's offense looks more effective than ours for a large part of the game, that is a major problem!

This Dark Night at the shoe and Black Saturday stuff has me a bit scared knowing that whole Alabama/Georgia storyline. But then again we're playing Penn State and they deserve to get a blackening! We should adopt Metallica's Blackened for the theme song that night, though it's a bit too fast for a lot of fans to keep up with, might result in some heart palpatations.

I was at my chiropractors office when I saw this and started laughing out loud... Luckily he's an 11W fan too so he'd appreciate it!

Thanks for confirming what I have felt about games dragging out longer! The commercials are ridiculous. "Oh we have an injury let's play 4 more commercials even though we just played all the same ones 2 minutes ago".

Please make it stop!

Didn't Georgia's AD say he did not want to play The Buckeyes? Wouldn't that be so nice to face Georgia in a bowl game?!!! <insert evil laugh here>. Get dumped, then, Alabama!

This game won't look anywhere near as bad as long as Hawaii wins a ton of games this year. And with the way their defense plays I don't see how they won't as long as their offense can gel a bit.

It's not actually a throat slash. It is a gesture in which they bring the breath of life into their hearts. Also Hawaiian culture is a mix of Polynesian cultures so it is fitting for the team to use and was sanctioned by the All Blacks, the New Zealand team that originated the exact translation used in the Haka that Hawaii uses. Not expecting you to have known better so thought I'd share.

I have said before on here that I've been looking forward to this game for a very long time. I have been a Buckeye fan first all my life but today I rooted for the 'Bows and even got to see the team off at the hotel before they headed to the 'Shoe. The look on their faces was classic as they saw some support from people in Columbus - I bet they almost never see that given the amount they have to travel. I knew Ohio State was going to roll but you have to give credit to Hawaii for playing the hell out of that game and making us earn every yard. I also think that this is a very important lesson for both teams to learn from and should help both of my favorite teams this year going forward. What a matchup! I do wish that the 'Bow's could have gotten a TD - one of their coaches told me they were planning on going for a 2 point conversion if they did... sad they didn't get that chance. I know I may get downvoted for all this but I was really proud for those players representing their home state so well. Remember - they do not have the resources we have at tOSU so you've gotta feel for them a bit and I think we'll all be Hawaii fans this year now because they should definitely win some games!

Vili is not just a superfan, he was considered a de facto mascot. I met him once too, really nice and funny guy. Unfortunately they cannot afford to have him travel to games so he's never been an official mascot of any kind and I am not even sure I've seen him in any games since the early 2000's.

Comment 11 Sep 2015

They haven't historically been bad until of late. But they did just beat a PAC-12 team in their season opener so I wouldn't discount them entirely. The minute they score their first TD they are already ahead of Wisconsin in my book!

Comment 11 Sep 2015

I don't know if they are related or what but I always go to the one on South High. If I time it right I can get their actual buckeye (as in peanut butter frosting on chocolate donut) freshly made and NOTHING beats that!

Comment 11 Sep 2015

Wait, I thought we only play them this time. Are they scheduled again? I know we aren't going there!?! As much as we'd all love to I'm sure! Anyway 380.
