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 read the accounts name and honestly thought to myself: Why on earth do Ohio State's men need laxitives?

Then I read further and realized they took a dump on that team up north, again.  

I love trophies

Now that you are moving to Columbus, can we reasonably expect to see more of your fabulous recruiting breakdowns done from an in-person perspective?

Also.. Southeastern Ohio is really lovely this time of year.

I once left a chad hanging in a Florida election

I can only think of Woody Hayes and Jack Nicklaus.  I think there were a few more though.  John Glenn maybe?

The city of Dearborn, Michigan contains the largest Muslim population in the U.S.  

U of M is a publc institution..  While I don't agree with them.. I'm also not Muslim, either.

I'm fine with them not showing the film.

The Vultures, perhaps?  I dont know.. I'd like to see them earn their Silver Bullet moniker before we start nicknaming them.  They've got a ways to go, yet.

Appreciate the story Clinger76.  I brought up the subject of Gerald in a post one day last year.  Hope that one day he is able to overcome his demons.  Best wishes to a former Buckeye.

Sticking with the Wolf of Wall Street theme.. I say we all do some Blow out of a strippers bunghole before kickoff, then we good.

Where were all the politicians that just love Ohio State so much they had to get on stage with the national champions?

Comment 28 Mar 2015

The various sports in the Buckeyes Athletic Department must be getting a volume discount from ordering all these rings.  Its only going to get better.  

Comment 25 Mar 2015

I think the key point is that the Alabama high school will be the one hosting this event and not Harbaugh.  I believe the NCAA rule is that a coach or university cannot host a camp more than 50 miles from their campus.  But this one is right in the Tide's backyard.  I am all for pissing off the SEC again..lol.

UK routinely takes kids with upside who would have been drafted directly out of high school and turns them into pros...
 

Wait.. What?  Did UK turn them into pros or were they going to be drafted directly out of High-School anyways, regardless of attending UK?

Hes a great athelete for sure.. But he is also only 141 pounds.  Hes light for even a corner.  Linebacker is problaby not his position.  Although those four championship medals around his neck do carry quite a bit of weight.
