  • SPORTS MOMENT: Favorite Buckeye moment came from watching Keith Byars kick off a shoe and take it to the house for a score. Were it not for Flutie's heroics in his final game Byars would have been making a speech at the Downtown Athletic Club instead of Doug.Hard to pick just one

If you're going to troll an SEC homer stick to the basics. Sherman's March, 0-1 in Civil Wars, coupons for Polygrip, jorts and those hideous Camouflage Crocs.

There are no positives to be found for Friday night games.

  • Friday - High School
  • Saturday - College
  • Sunday - Pros

That's how it should stay, period. Bucks start playing on Friday nights and soon the old lady will realize I can be doing other things rather than spend all day drunk and watching football...eff that noise.

My comfort level with this velvetly roped off area is only exceeded by my age.

Ugh...new agers

Uniforms have so much less influence on recruiting than just going out and kicking the shit out of your opponent. Save the trendy "Smurf Turf" and "Black Uni's" for those that have a history of suck.

We never really "know" what promises are made with 100% certainty.

I never want to have to speculate on promises made and/or delivered. I would prefer players attend based on Ohio State alone. You work to earn playing time. You work to gain respect.

We should never be in a position of writing checks our ass can't cash.

I find it unimaginable that people without having been a parent have such strong opinions regarding Mom's involvement here. While you may think you know what it's like and what "it should" be like, you simply have no clue. As a father of five ranging in age from 20's to teens, I feel amply qualified to voice an opinion on the subject, however, I can't. I don't know Malik like his mother does. I can tell you this though, I have kids that I have every belief they will weigh their decisions carefully, make those decisions and live with the consequences both good and bad. I have other kids who would make those decisions haphazardly, fall flat on their faces and blame someone else lol, no amount of "parenting" can steer all in the right direction.

Every person is unique, each have their strong and weak points, none of us here are in a position to say what's right and wrong in this situation. I'll say this though, at least Mom here is doing HER due diligence to make certain it's all been thought through by their family, Malik will likely thank her one day.

I'm one of those guys that really looks at the medical hardship cases when others do it, most often because they're 12/13 players over their limit. We're at 84/85 whichever...point is there is little doubt of attrition totaling 2/3 players. When teams place players on medical hardship that are sitting at 97...I'm more likely to call BS.

From what I have heard, and maybe you can confirm this, is that the mayor chose not to take any preventative measures (ie; brine solution) despite having the ability to do so. Everything I have heard points to a money saving, poor judgment situation.

Hailing from NE Ohio and currently residing in Charleston, SC...

They have literally closed everything. While we laugh at the inability to navigate through what we consider a minor nuisance, they are completely ill equipped to handle snow/ice, no salt trucks, plows, sand etc...hell, you can't even buy an ice scraper at Wal-Mart because they just don't carry the item. Couple that with the fact that most drivers have zero experience in these conditions and it's best to stay home anyway. Still funny though.

Gene may be a good AD in most instances but he sure as hell dropped the ball when it counted the most...

He owes James Tressel a debt of gratitude imo.

Comment 26 Jan 2014

Oh I get that and I am the last one to underestimate those emerging from our coaching tree. Consistency has been an issue for him though, the reasons can be debated but the results can not. Gotta rid himself of the "Clemsoning" effect.

Comment 26 Jan 2014

Sparty needs to duplicate a season like they just had a little more consistently before I actually "fear" playing against them. The loss this season has firmly planted the chip on our shoulder for this year so preparation shouldn't be an issue. Playing in their house does add a little for them admittedly.

I'll feel a ton better if our defense doesn't allow a new Heisman candidate(s) on a weekly basis.

Comment 26 Jan 2014

I voted for TTUN not because I feel they're the toughest on the schedule but more out of fear of becoming complacent against them. We could have come away defeated in A2 this past year and they were hot garbage prior to that game. Nothing sucks more for a longer period of time than losing to those asshats.

Comment 25 Jan 2014

I figure we'll be a 5-7 seed and get a tough matchup outta the gate. I think we get one win and then our offensive struggles rear their head and we bow out.
