I too was born in Chillicothe. Moved around a lot but considered Circleville my home. Currently living in Alabama. Miss home everyday but nothing puts a smile on my face like seeing Cincinnati when I come over the hills on 71 approaching the river. I get a sense of peace when coming home. Passing King's Island always brings back pleasant memories too. Joining the corps and my current profession keep me from returning. Maybe when I retire. Who knows.

I didn't mind him being here. What disturbed me was the amount of upvotes he tended to receive. There are a lot of dirty Buckeyes out there.

Correct on all accounts. A very valuable weapon. I think he shows room for improvement in his intermediate range and ability to catch the ball. On the deep threat, he is less likely to take a big hit but I think that messes with his head between 10-20 yards. Over the years he has had many drops in that range, or at least drops that were not typical of abilities.

That would have made me angry too, but I am going to look at this from the business' point of view here. You didn't recognize the issue when you intially took possession of the room. You went to eat to unwind for the night, which I imagine took approximately one to two hours. I can think of many uses for a room during that span of a time and a lot of junkies/hookers could use your reasoning to get a "One and done". Granted, I understand you were with your family and not your mistress but I see both sides here.

The silence! Had Bama won I would endure a lot of conversations about football and have to talk about all the glories of Alabama since I live in Bama. Oddly, unlike previous years, no one is talking college football with me right now. I get the occasional congratulations but then they quickly change the subject. The day after we beat Bama I wore every bit of Buckeye apparel I owned all around town and went shopping for everything I had put off buying in that last month. The Bamanites had murder in their eyes. Luckily I have the frame that dissuades such actions! The silence is glorious!

I wonder how close he was with Weber. Its kind of wrong if Weber was lead to believe that Drayton was going to be his position coach just to have him bolt the day after signing. Those MAY NOT be the facts but anyhow, it is suspect none the less. For all I know, Weber may have known Drayton was leaving.

I can't remember but there was some McElroy/Ingram hype or maybe McCaron/Richardson hype at one time. Having four players, three at a single opportunity position has to be unprecedented. I can't see that stat ever being replicated.

What did you update? There is no news that wasn't already assumed. No hatred, just stating a firm and common opinion.

Comment 29 Jan 2015

Italics was set to on using my phone. I double checked it. Not sure why the sarcasm font did not work...

Being said, What does your comment imply?

Comment 28 Jan 2015

Tired of people detracting from our nonconfrence slate. This was a very credible schedule and tougher than anything Baylor or TCU had this year. Cincinatti, although our whipping boy, is no push over team. They had themselves a decent year this year and arguably had one of the better offenses in the nation when their transient QB was healthy. Kent State was a joke, yes. That was our one gimme game. VT was supposed to be a solid opponent and they were, for that one game with their health mostly intact. They too ran into consistency problems with injuries throughout the year. Navy, although a military school, is always a tough team with a tough sell to everyone else that doesn't have to play them on their schedule. Most SEC schools don't have a schedule that comprehensive. Could our NONCON have been tougher? Yes it could but this string of games was adequate for our SOS. The first three or four games of the season are games that teams need to work out the kinks in. Look how much we progressed as a team this year. Some people arent satisfied unless we play 4 SEC teams before rolling into the B1G conference slate. I like having that Marquee matchup or two, along with two other respectable teams and a cupcake.

Comment 28 Jan 2015

We are undisputed champions for a reason, this year. The only ones questioning that are TCU fans. You will be hard pressed to name a team that has proven more in victories than this team, this year. We beat Mich St., Wisconsin, (a ranked Minn.) #1 Alabama and #2 Oregon.  We beat TTUN too for that matter but that doesn't necessarily qualify as a quality win. We had a poor game but hell we beat a PSU team that at least went on to win their bowl game. Granted those last two didn't have great seasons but they are traditional powerhouses in college football. Don't discredit them just because they are familar B1G foes.What more could you possibly want?

Good luck getting a lucrative job in X profession with that marijuana tattoo on your body....

Comment 23 Jan 2015

While I've always dreamed of sticking it to Mark may, I have never dreamed of sticking it to Mark May. That illistration is in poor taste in my opinion. Really don't like the guy but I prefer airing his dirty laundry, the fact that that laundry is women's underwear, in public.

Comment 17 Jan 2015

I didn't read through all of the responses because I got tired of seeing the "dickish" remarks. I don't like the idea of immediately benching players but ball security needs addressed. We aren't doubling the amount of plays per game since the Tressel era, are we? The fumbles should decrease with experience. It is a young team. Remember when buckeye fans were fine with piss poor defense when we were winning. That same defense is responsible for multiple big game losses. The same issue could arise from sloppy turnovers.

Comment 16 Jan 2015

True, but in the history of college football I can't remember very many teams that have lost their starter and moved on to be succesful all year long. Sure there have been back ups that have come in a won a game of importance but it is rare that they have had sustained sucess. Can anyone name another 2nd or 3rd string QB to succeed like ours has? That Oklahoma QB had a good game against Alabama but this year looked like a flop with him. (Unless he got hurt/didn't play. I didn't follow them closely this year)

Comment 16 Jan 2015

I think you might be overstating that a bit. FSU never almost got left out of playoffs. Many pundits and message board fans alike thought that they were one of the weakest teams in the playoff but noone was seriously considering leaving them out of it due to the listed accomplishments. It was only after getting waxed by Oregon that all of the talk began.

Comment 16 Jan 2015

We certainly havent been covered on the BTN as much as I would have liked. Last year I saw many matches on BTN and this year about half that many. I am not spending more money to watch different schools that I have minute interest in.

Comment 16 Jan 2015

Had you not publicly questioned this I would have been puzzled and moved along. After studying it, it got it. It did take me a second to figure out because I am not familiar with the term, Oxford Comma.
