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.

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!

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.

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?

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.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

I am still looking forward to the Hawaii game. We've never played them and will likely never play them again. I have watched them for many years and they are a fun team to watch. It will be a blowout of course but I am happy for them just to get some much needed money pumped into their program. They're *this* close to shutting down their football program so they need the money.

I am color blind between red and green -so I just wear Scarlet!

Also, I am not a fan of Skyline either, but I have a co-worker who is in our Virginia office and he can't wait for any time that he gets to come here to Columbus so he can get Skyline. He isn't even from Ohio but absolutely loves that stuff. I think maybe if he lived here he'd eventually have enough of it to realize the truth but at least he's blissfully ignorant now. Blech!

Glad to hear the good news. Also very happy to know that everyone here was ready and willing to help. What a great community we have here.

Comment 17 Feb 2015

Mine arrived today. Order was placed 1/27. I love it. I was concerned with all the comments about the Nike Swoosh and, while I don't know what the real diamond swoosh is supposed to look like, I can't tell any difference honestly. The thing did smell like a factory and I gave it a good delicate cycle wash and it's ready to go with me to work tomorrow! I got the #12 jersey. About the only "mistake" I guess I made was I got the black CFP numbers instead of white like the real natty ones but I had the choice and chose from memory instead of checking first so that was my own fault- plus I kind of like it regardless so I'm quite happy. Was it worth getting my credit card hacked? Well, for all I know that was because of Home Depot anyway!

Comment 16 Feb 2015

Still waiting for mine to arrive. It made it to Chicago last week so I expect it any day now. Unfortunately, however, my credit card has since been hacked! Several charge attempts were made in France, Oklahoma and Missouri all at the same time and luckily the credit card company blocked them and called me. Came to find out there was 1 charge for $56 that I didn't make that I have to dispute now. Not sure if it's due to buying here or not but beware and make sure you watch your credit charges closely!

It has been a great year for passing and that is a testament not only to the Qbacks but a much improved O line as well as huge improvements with the receivers. If Braxton does play QB again, he will have more support than ever around him and that should make for an interesting dynamic. Hell, it's going to be an interesting dynamic regardless. We are crazy blessed.

Comment 11 Feb 2015

I used to work in IT for the state legislature. We used to hear about "celebrities" coming to visit and try to find reasons to be there if we could (we worked in the Riffe center across the street, but supported all the networking infrastructure in the Statehouse). This would have definitely been one of those days to be there "working" on something.

Comment 07 Feb 2015

OK but the whole reason Mike Weber decided to come to tOSU in the first place was because he felt Harbaugh lied to him so Jim is kind of calling the kettle black here is he not?

Comment 07 Feb 2015

I agree with the list. Every last bit of it. I also agree there were plenty more but this list represents the big runs that really made the differences in each of their respective games.

Comment 07 Feb 2015

This was the "de facto" National Championship game to me. I didn't really care what was going to happen against Oregon, I was just glad we beat 'Bama... And then, of course, we beat Oregon and I believe I reached a new level of fandom with this team.

Comment 06 Feb 2015

I voted yes because he does have a right, however let this be lesson #1 in his football career that you're only courted like this once and once you sign you're only as good as your performance every week. It's time to stop whining and start working and that would be the case no matter where you would have signed. Get used to being lied to while you're at it. This isn't high school anymore. This is life now.

Comment 05 Feb 2015

OK so I am not all that Twitter versed, but can someone tell me is that really Jim Harbaugh tweeting back at him talking trash? If so that is highly inappropriate in my mind and is reason enough for them to lose for eternity. I cannot see Urban doing that no matter what.

Comment 04 Feb 2015

I am still waiting for mine but can you elaborate on why the diamond quest logo looks kinda crappy? I am just curious and trying to fill the time until mine arrives but also don't want to be too disappointed when it does.

Comment 31 Jan 2015

I can attest to this. My wife makes her Buckeyes with Ghirardelli 72% dark chocolate chips and they are the best I have ever had in my life... I know I am biased but I am also a lifetime Buckeye eater so I know what I'm talking about.
