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.

Well.. I signed up for CBSCollegeSports.com just in time for the Navy game.. Something I told myself I would never do. Then cancelled out of disgust, and cost us the Virginia Tech game.  Smh. :/

Glad to see I'm not the only one who had to do this.

Before Jimmy Fallon and Dave Matthews, I thought the "Walk of Shame" was when you had to walk down to the tree-line and pick out your own hide tanner.

For someone who claims to be a fan of One Direction, you sure are going the wrong way... Lol

Edit:

Not my dv, by the way.. Up vote to balance it out.  Your entitled to you opinion.

Yeah, I saw that at first as well.  I reloaded a few times.. But it must just take a while to load properly on my Ipad because of the amount of data.

There's always a point to breaking down the film.  Especially to figure out where the obvious holes were in the middle of the field last night.

We have a first time starter at QB, and an O-line that looks shell-shocked, at times, to say the least.  We got to find a way to expose those holes in order to alleviate some of the pressure that future Defenses are going to throw at us.  Also, to figure out why the backs are not picking up their man in pass protection like they should.  Seemed like there was always a man free last night.

Take a breath, man..deep breath. Not ready to give that status just yet.   He also got beat by a tight end on a corner route..  But I agree, he played well overall.

We had been going to the Greenery since we were juniors in high-school, by the time I had made it to campus.  Man.. Those were the days!  No one gave a shit back then.  Lol

Comment 06 Sep 2014

Your right.. It was the right call given the rule.  Perhaps I should rephrase, I believe the rule as written is bogus.  It does not allow for simultaneous high/low contact between the blocking players and the opponents. Player safety is still the most important thing though.. So I'm really just nit-picking, here.

How cool would it be if they had some glow-in-the-dark-neon-light-up-stringy things, threaded into the unis and ran out of the tunnel under some black lights?

Comment 06 Sep 2014

To be quite frank, I saw the replay on TV of what they called an illegal chop-block and the call was completely bogus.  The rule is, that a defender cannot block a player below the knees, while that player is otherwise engaged with an opposing player.  The back dove towards his legs before the lineman hit him.  They made contact at the same time, while the QB was still in the pocket.  I know the impetus of the rule is player-safety, but that one was very questionable, to say the least.

It's been a long time since I flew.. Do they still allow non-passengers to wait in the airport bar/lounge?

I would send her a text and tell her you will be waiting on her there, she will get it when she lands.  Then turn off your phone while waiting/watching the games.  Try like hell to talk her into staying for the Buckeyes.
