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.

I swear before I opened the link I thought the parasite practicing mind control was going to be another of Bert's classic quotes.  

How else does his AD claim that he made an 0-8 conference record " fun again"?  

Not to mention his #Karma filled wife.  Mind control.

I may just take you up on that one day, Linga.   I've always wanted to ride the bike back out there, through Olympic National Park and along the coast.  Just gorgeous.  Easy to see why so many west-coasters love nature the way they do.

I loved Seattle.  Visited out there when I was back in High School.  Always thought if I couldn't live in Southeast Ohio.. Seattle area would be my choice.

Streaming this game on my Ipad right now..

One thing that I have noticed.. These 'Cocks are really going to have to stiffen up on D.  Otherwise, they are going to take real a beating at the hands of the Aggies.

I think it also has something to do with financial equivalency, or something like that.

Football players get more benefits allotted to them, during their college careers than to most other athletes.  The trainers, the coaches, training tables, etc.

 I am not sure, but was thinking that the NCAA wants to keep all players on scholarship within that sport on a fairly equitable playing field.  At least in terms of the money spent on those athletes.
