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.

Meh.. Sacks are better than playing out of control and turning the ball over.  The big hits are what need to be avoided.  Think our offensive line will be just fine though.  Neither of their season-ending injuries occured on a sack last year.  Our quarterbacks should be just fine.

The coaches I had the same all the had the same philosophy as Brewster mentioned above.  We would point directly at the DLinemen who we were going to block and tell them the play was coming right at them.  Our jobs on the OLine was to execute.

I still live in Ohio (Chillicothe area) but whenever i go home to Vinton County to visit family I always make sure to get me a big bottle of Ski pop, a veal with all the toppings, and some  Buf-lo-dip which is made exclusively in Vinton County.

edit: The veal sandwich i speak of is a ground pork sandwich similar to a tenderloin.  It is pounded out super-thin and rolled in corn meal then deep-fried and cooked until golden brown and super crispy.  Delicious.

Just as an aside to your article.  Pete Cusick was a 6'1" and 255lb nosetackle when he entered the NFL draft.

Goes to show you how much larger those guys in the trenches have become over the years.

Is it bad that I just licked the screen once I saw those brownies?

That was my thought as well.. If not praying, possibly standing for the national anthem.

Congrats bud We've been down for a few years now. Not at all like it was when I was in school there.

...and require fans to post a BAC at least twice the legal limit before they enter. 

Challenge accepted.  They win this one and I'm probably going to need a stomach pump for Game 4.

Michael Dean Perry was only 6'1" and he was a pretty dominate force for the Browns years ago.

Amen Cajun.. The difference between a bad kid and a great a lot of times is the support system surrounding them.
