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.

If your getting beat up by a kid, Remy then perhaps maybe you need to put down the pen and pick up some weights.  Haha.  J/k.

In all seriousness though.. I would make him march his ass down to the nearest tree and pick out his own switch.  The humiliation of having to do it in front of his sister may be enough alone to make him stop.  Not trying to start a huge debate on this issue, but sometimes it's ok to spank a child.

Why is no one up North mentioning either Nussmeir (sp) who is already employed there, or Missouri's Gary Pinkel?  Both very sucessfull coaches in their own right.

Comment 13 Dec 2014

The only thing I will say is that The Ohio State University funds a much larger number of varsity sports than any school in the SEC.  Yes there is an enormous amount of money in the athletic department.. But when it is spread out over a larger area then it can also be assumed that our assistant coaches make less on average.

I do agree however that they need to be bumped up in salary in order to retain them.  I absolutely hate having to replace coordinators every 4-5 years only because a mid-level program pays more.

Comment 12 Dec 2014

I would say it was easily an 80/20 Buckeye crowd.  I've been to a lot of road games before and that was the most impressive performance our crowd has given as well. (*games at Indiana not included).  Buckeye Nation was there Loud and Proud for that entire game.  It was pretty impressive.  

We had seats right in the Alliance Club, right in front of the press box with Gus Johnson and Charles Davis to our backs.  Every time the Bucks made a big play they would yell down at us in amazement.  Chants of "We want Bama"  would ring throughout the stadium.  We even offered Gus to let us take on either TCU or Baylor in a play-in game.  It was awesome.

The university does own buses and airplanes, in which they can "sell" fares to all the family members that are cheap and affordable that also include the allotted tickets that they are entitled too.. but they are just assholes unwilling to do so.  

Comment 06 Dec 2014

Getting ready to head out myself there, DJ.  Hopefully bringing all of Buckeye Nation with us.  Today we may be an underdog, but these types of games are where legends are made.  Hopfully we can get on track early and turn this into rout.  But we are going to need all our guns blazin' and Cardale is bringing the cannon.

See you all in Indy folks!   Go Bucks!!!!

I will be there Saturday evening ready and willing.. But I might also be pissed drunk, so I can't promise that no will badgers will be harmed. ;)

Comment 05 Dec 2014

Haha.. There was an All-state running back by the name of Jason Boothe.  And also a DivIII offensive player of the year by the name of Andy Booth.  But no.. They are not actually related.

Comment 05 Dec 2014

I was educated in Vinton County, and I sure as hell remember the Alamo.  I went in there to rent a car and those bastards gave my 6'5", 315lb frame a Goddamn Prius.

Comment 04 Dec 2014

I've said this for a while now.. But will say it again.  Ed Warinner is by far the most important assistant on this team.

I honestly believe the fact that a more mobile, J.T Barrett was picked to start after Braxton went down was due to the offensive line's poor performance early in the year and to close out camp.  It's the same reason Pryor was chosen as a freshman over Todd Beckman.  

The job Warriner has done the last few years has been remarkable.  I truly hope he gets rewarded for that and decides to stay.

Doesn't it have something to with your browser history?  Tailors the ads to suit your tastes?

Might explain why all the Asian porn-sites on my desktop...

Going to be there loud and proud, brother!  Got our tickets right after the victory over Indiana.  Looking forward to winning this thing!

Comment 01 Dec 2014

I cannot stand this argument about the Buckeyes should not be considered, because of JT being injured.

No.. They should very well be considered because Braxton was injured.  This team proved, along with J.T, they are one of the top teams in the nation.  If they win the B1G Ten on Saturday, then excluding them from the top-four would be a travesty.

Why are they shooting the pilots?   Who the hell flys a TV?

Comment 30 Nov 2014

They did beat Stubenville pretty soundly.. It was the most points given up by the Big Red since the 60s

may not mean much to anyone outside of these parts.. But No team in the current Tri-valley Conference has ever lost to any teams from Columbus, Cincinnati, Cleveland or Dayton.  

Joe and his teammates are about to add Toledo to that list, on Thursday night.
