I've been a Buckeye fan since birth. I remember quite fondly my dad and I would climb onto the roof of the house every Saturday and early Sunday morning in order to adjust the antenna so that we could watch THE Ohio State Buckeyes' games. The ones that were not live, we always listened to religiously on the radio, and then stayed up late (it was the weekend) in order to receive our edition of the Dispatch so we could read the game recap as Hot-off-the-press as was possible at 3am. Watching the Buckeyes Replays on WOSU Sunday mornings at 9am were always the highlights of the fall in my opinion. And we NEVER missed them. Sometimes even being late for Church on occasion. Well..the Pastor at our church made the mistake of asking my Dad to try and be a little earlier next time on this one particular Sunday.This happened to be the Sunday before Thanksgiving and as it turns out was the same Sunday of WOSU's replay of the '87 TSUN game, Erle Bruce's last as Head Coach..My father quite emphatically explained to the entire congregation that his God..Our God is indeed a Buckeye!! And the very mere request of such a preacher could only be the work of those Devilish wolverine fans..Needless to say, we never stepped foot back inside his church. So for me, Buckeye Football is as close to religion as there is.

"We tried to tackle Cardale, but Rhonda Rousey punched us with this fist."

Dude..  There is no need for name calling of what appears to be a very classy fanbase.  HokiePro has been a voice of reason here ever since he joined our community.  And he has a point.  They outplayed, and beat us in our house last year.  Please dont stoop to that level.  Show some dignity.  We are Buckeyes.  We win with class.

His name was Jason Williams. Former Marshall/Florida Point Guard and NBA star.  Perhaps more well know in NBA circles as "White Chocolate."

Comment 28 Aug 2015

After that game we installed a state of the art drainage system.  It is basically a giant vacuum cleaner under the stadium.  

..and yet no one makes a Ttun joke.  That giant stadium of theirs has sucked for years.

I like the thought of taking on his former assistants.  But I'm going to surmise that if either one is still at those two schools then neither has done a very good job.

I am never going to question Braxton's athletic ability. We all know what he can do with the ball in his hands.  What I am anxious to see is his ability to get downfield and throw a block on a saftey that opens up a huge gain for Zeke and what he does without the ball.  Football is so much more intricate than what we are able to see on the highlight reels. Coincidentally, those are also the types of plays that will get him drafted very highly.

I think it could definitely help.  Obviously a lot of factors go into it. But in my mind it started way back when Karen Holbrook trumpeted her own little war on open-containers while we are tailgating on campus. Lots of folks seem to be afraid to cut loose anymore.  Plus with Hineygate no longer a thing..it just poured another bucket of water on the ashes.

Just pay the $85.. Two guys with clubs and brass knuckles will show up at your house, place a bag over your head while stuffing you into the trunk of their sedan.  They will take you to an abandoned wharehouse in an undisclosed location and inform you that you are to read it right away. Dont ask any questions. Just read it then post a funny gif afterwards and go about your day.

Or.. You could simply follow them on Twitter.  That is pretty much your best bet, my friend.

I think as far as distractions are, the Heisman campaign coupled along with the banquet circuit that accompianies it when you win it is a much bigger distraction. Yes the NFL draft has been around for a long time and kids will think about that, but not going hard will never help your stock rise in the eyes of NFL GMs.

The Heisman nomination and all that comes with it can actually effect practice time as well as focus.  Something to think about if either Zeke, J.T, Cardale or Boykin from TCU, ultimately figure into that by year's end.

Just got our tiickets to The Game last week.  Also attempting a return trip to Indy for the Championship Game the following week, and maybe another game or two but nothing definite yet

Comment 09 Aug 2015

I nearly mentioned Hubie Bobo as well.  Could also put Joe Burrows on that list as well now.  Beleive he will be a really good one in time.  Plus Thomas Purdue from Wellston a Captain on the '61 team deserves a mention.

Comment 08 Aug 2015

No.. I have never believed that either.  There are a lot of us Buckeyes that get upset if you dont say that our team is the greatest team in the history of College Football when talking about it.  Be the slightest bit critical and you will get flamed by the fringe dwelling members of our fan base.  Buckeye fans will still watch. It equaled ratings bonanza.

Where ESPN did seem to have a bias was that most of their recruiting coverage, and therefore rankings seemed to focus on the southeast. It was just more economically feasible to cover more recruits in a smaller geographical area.  Yes, that conference won 7 straight BCS titles and yes, they had more draft picks than most other conferences. But we proved this year that great football is played in other parts of the country as well. It is interesting to see how much the focus will change with the upcoming bidding war for the B1G network.  The influx of former Buckeyes into their broadcasting crew, I believe is a fact that has as much to do with the change in tone as any.  I also think this has left them showing their hand.  They are going to outbid FOX. The only question is by how much.

Only 9 players in your top 100 ESPN? Clearly you must hate us!!!!1!!!!111

Whats funny is that I cant think of 7 players from Baylors squad that I would start over anyone on this team.

I was honestly considering using this image and making a parody of this for U of M football and posting it as a forum topic on here tiitled: Drop6 and poking fun at our alligator-armed friends up North.  Damn this offseason
