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'm assuming because you picked Oregon as one of the teams at the end, that means you also believe they will beat Sparty in their early season matchup.

I believe our offense to be better than that of Oregon's right now.  However that game at Michigan State will be the toughest road game we have all year.   Although, I do believe the game against Minnesota the very next week could be laying in the weeds.

My four are very similar:  Ohio State, Florida State, Alabama, Oklahoma.

Some conferences and schools, including the Big Ten Conference schools, have been requiring athletes to sign more specific name-and-likeness release forms. The Big Ten form has stated that the athlete's signature grants to the school and conference "the right to publish, duplicate, print, broadcast or otherwise use in any manner or media, my name, photograph, likeness or other image of my self for any purpose" the school or conference determines is in its interest.   

Not or going to lie DJ..  I was relieved to read that cloning Joey Bosa is still on the table.

The best thing Dave Brandon could do for *ichigan Football is to throw the bank at Les Miles.  Make him the new Head Coach up North.  Les would help to bring them, the rivalry and the B1G Conference back to national relevancy.

I can almost hear TBDBITL playing Slade's version of Cum On Feel The Noise, every time this kid makes a big play.

Off the coast of "three rings" and they caught somethin big... Hmmmm urban is chasing a 3rd ring, assuming this is a sign.

  I believe "Three Rings" in this case is the name of Johnson's boat.  He also owns a restaurant by the same name.. 

But, I like where your head is at.

Seems like there was a fire after all:
