B1G vs. SEC Arrests/Citations

Since all this Aaron Hernandez news has come to the surface, there has been a lot of talk as to who can be to blame in all this. It must be that thug Urban Meyer and his tolerance for criminal activity! *cough*cough* So I figured instead of speculating, I'd actually do some research to prov...

Football National Elite - What teams stack up?

I've had several discussions with people on the boards I belong to about college football.  One of the topics that almost always come up is the SEC and how they are "great" from top to bottom.  I always call "bullshit" when that's mentioned.  But it brought...

BCS Pairings and Seeding Issues

While the BCS system as we know it is about to fade into that long goodnight, the discussion over its faults and foibles continues. Today, many of us have been chatting about the Big Ten's abysmal performance against the vaunted So Evil South Eastern Conference. When the discussion turned to the...

War As They Knew It

I just finished reading one of the best books ever. It is called War as they knew it. It is about our forever loved coach Woody Hayes and his creation coach Bo Schembechler's ten year war. It covers a wide variety of issues from that era. The watergate scandal. The Vietnam war. Behind the scenes...

Meechy77-Stephen Collier

I live in Cleveland. My greatest Sports highlight this year was Trent Richardson's comment(he of fine SEC education) "This is the goodest defense we faced all year!" Try getting over that! Anywho, I LOVE 11 warriors and the community that faithfully post the best content about my ...

The Time Traveler: Analysis of Anger

<poof> Greetings, time liners.  I have popped in to your present to assure you of the future.  It doesn't take a Time Traveler to tell you what's coming.  Just trust it.  I once told Ray, a friend of mine, "If you build it, they will come."  But that...

Gee, by the numbers

In one of the several posts and threads about the most recent, and ultimately tenure-ending gaffes committed by legendary Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee, someone asked for a succinct recitation of his many, many accomplishments. While the general consensus is that he is a "transformational ...

Would you let your kids go to scum?

After a long sleepless night, reading every comment, to every post. A thought of my kids going to scum crossed my mind. It crept up on me. Like those repressed memories of busting my parents that one awful night. I feel sick. I feel dirty. I just cried. What a horrible thought. My kids wearing piss ...

Meanwhile, at Penn State...

I was at Penn State last week for a work conference, and I had a chance in the evening to take in the town.  Now, I should preface this by saying I have a lot of friends who are Penn State alumni, and I found the campus to be very charming and the people to be extremely nice.  It was also ...

Gordon Gee is Ohio State's Joe Paterno

I grew up in Cleveland. I have always been a big Buckeye sports fan. I'm known in the Maine theater community as the guy who brought a TV into the dressing room if I had a rehearsal during an important Buckeye game. When our team won that was as it should be. When we lost I felt as if it were my...

Perkins officially leaving OSU

Saw this on ESPN.  I was hoping this was not true.  http://espn.go.com/blog/bigten/post/_/id/77676/lb-david-perkins-leaves-ohio-state Now that he is out do we get a few more Line backers?  I thought he did a great job in the Spring filling in for Shazier.  I would think he would...

Paterno Family Lawsuit

Well, folks, just when you thought that the wounds might actually be starting to heal, along comes another jagged edge to rip off the scab and start the bleeding anew. The Paterno family is going to now sue the NCAA for basically its wholesale acceptance of the conclusions of the Freeh report, ...

Mascot Madness 2013: YOU PICK THE MASCOTS!!!

Here's something I'm trying to do to pass the time: Hypothetical. Mascot. Tournament. Yes, we can pit mascots head-to-head and determine which ones are the best. This is something I'm very intrigued in due to how others view mascots across the CFB landscape considering how strange and ...

My Interview with Al Borges

Better know a ... Mountaineer?

I beg you permit me, my fellow Buckeyes, during this long offseason to spin a yarn about our neighbors to the east. Work takes me all over the country and on Friday morning I found myself in Morgantown, WV. While I will always bleed scarlet and grey, as a fan of college football I love it when I ...

Joey Bosa = perfect OOS recruit!

In the short time Urban Meyer has been head coach of The Ohio State University, his first full recruiting class ('13) has been one for the ages. From the get-go, it started out with high level nationally ranked players from Ohio (Marshall, Burrows); followed by high level OOS players i...

My Worst Ohio State Football Experience Ever

In a forum thread, someone was talking about how they were getting married the day after the first Buckeye game this year.   This got me thinking about the absolute WORSE experience I had with an Ohio State game... You'll see why it reminds me of this after I tell the story. I'm going...

Coop was better than Earle

The two worst Ohio State football coaches in the last 60+ years were Earle Bruce and John Cooper. To be fair, Ohio State has only had five head coaches since Woody arrived in 1951 (not including interim coach, Luke Fickell) and the other two on the list are Jim Tressel and Urban Meyer. Earle and Coo...
