Got my first Buckeye helmet at age 3, went to my first game at 8 (Dad got season tickets in 1977). 4 of 5 family members are Alumni. Tended bar for years at the VC. Had to relocate for work so I am a little anxious about not living in Columbus for this season.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Almost impossible to answer. But, 1)Bartending on the patio at the VC for the 1995 Notre Dame game; 2)Being at The Game in 2006.

That hit now gets a flag every time in college and NFL.

Definitely go to Buckeye Donuts. You seriously don't drink? I honestly don't know what to suggest. Go to the Varsity Club and just soak up the atmosphere. Oh, definitely eat at Tommy's Pizza. Go to 15th and High and walk onto campus and take the Long Walk across the Oval and go to Mirror Lake. Go to the Skull Session.

JT wasn't put in a position to succeed against VT. 

+1 specifically for this.

I lived in Arlington for a year.  I rented a room across the street from Whitlow's on Wilson and pretty much ate and drank there every night.  Except for the nights I ate and drank at the Cap Lounge on the Hill.  The Lounge was absurdly expensive except for some bad amber ale on draft.  Whitlow's was relatively reasonably priced and the food was good.  Big fan, too, of their Sunday Brunch and Bloody Mary Bar.  But, yeah, the DC Metro area did not strike me as a culinary hotbed, that's for sure.

But what does it mean to be "quarterback"?  It isn't simply about athleticism.  It is about leadership and directing the team in a cohesive, effective manner while executing the game plan.  

I can think of a helluva lot more athletic QB's than Joe Montana, Terry Bradshaw, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady. How many rings do those "more athletic" QBs compared to this group?

You can eat the sizzle, I'll eat the steak.
