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.

Not sure why this was down voted.

Unless that up vote target was moving.

Seriously though, The Buckeyes seem have a target on their backs every game.  We just need to go out and care care of business.

 +1 for you to even it out.

  Also worth mentioning in regards to Boals is the fact that he is an alum of Ohio University.  One of the smartest players on the basketball court that I remember seeing.  Spent much of my college time cheering him, Curtis Simmons and Gary Trent on in the Convo. As well, of course, many days after nursing the hangovers.

It has been a pleasure watching him on the sidelines for the Buckeyes.  He's ready for his own show.

  I think it will be hard for Larry Johnson to get much of the credit, unless the D-line just absolutely dominates every opponent this coming season.  

  Luke Fickell, being the Defensive Coordinator in title, naturally will be given most of the credit by the media.

  However, my opinion is that Cris Ash will be the most responsible.  To improve a unit 26 spots overall is a pretty major task.  While, in retrospect, it is only a difference of some 27 yards/game to move into the top 20, it will be light years away from where his inherited-unit was at last year.

I know this topic was a little buried in the article.  But I for one would love the idea of inter-conference spring games.  I think it would help stir a little more excitement for the programs, as well as helping to generate even more revenue.  Perhaps we could even see buying a win  the dreaded high-noon games against lesser caliber opponents moved to the spring.  Hopefully leaving the regular season more marquee types of match ups.  Which, of course, means it'll never happen.

I used to love playing Contra..especially after I learned the whole Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, A, B, Select , Start thing.  

Tecmo Bowl is classic.  And how about Double Dribble?  Loved that game!

This is exactly my thought.  Carlos missed games as well people!  His were mostly because of suspensions so everyone seems to be dismissing this fact.
