I don’t know about Kevin’s life odds, but I would put the chances of the 2031 return game occurring at approximately zero. 

Chicago on stage is about the only musical play I have seen, but it is very entertaining in and of itself. Seeing Eddie in the cast sounds like a good plan to me.

There is nothing more I’d like to see than Drake sticking his head up his own ass and then have explosive diarrhea. But he’s not wrong here, we need to regularly schedule top flight competition. Home and home of course.

Wow, my over under on Drake bashing was 20 comments and it took only 3. Congrats. It seems that Ohio State "fans" just find and create ways to hate Drake and Smith, it's so strange.

create ways to hate Drake and Smith

Haha, well, Smith I'd say there's conflicted or conflicting opinions, but, as for  Drake, there was a series involving those Bucks on the gridiron the 4 qtrs andor the half.  And ya cant touch that

This season, his position is essentially going to be: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . And he's fine with it.

He is going to be Bosa's sack dance? Does that mean he plays as dominant? I hope so.

Let me guess, Oklahoma has to play in UG in 2023 and UG in OK in 2031. If this is the plan, then the return trip will never happen.

GO BUCKS!!! *ichigan sucks!!!

Fuck Drake he shrank from a fight when he gave in to political pressure and political correctness ...instead of defending and backing his football coach...he sold him down the river....F*** Asswipe

Agree with you 100%.  "Competitive" my ass!  He's has the heart of a mustard seed.  I am right behind you.....Way behind you.  He played a part in harming his own program....recruiting, loss of great head coach for crucial, formative part, of the season.

It's pretty easy to tell you actually didn't attend The Ohio State University.  Maybe you'd be better suited to be an Alabama fan, education means nothing there, among other reasons.

Nonsense. Meyer had no business keeping details about Smith to himself (especially after the 2015 incident). He was responsible to the university, but let his loyalty to Earl Bruce get in the way. President Drake stood up for the university and held him appropriately accountable.

My brother is an avid theater goer. Him and my dad sat next to Eddie at a musical probably 15 to 20 years ago. Long before he ever acted in one. In fact, I think he was still playing in the NFL at the time. Eddie George might be the most well rounded athlete I've ever heard of. The guy does everything.

Screw Drake. He finds some stones now to pipe up. I don’t care what this clown thinks or has to say.

Yea that 2031 game is never happening. Speaking of, I kinda doubt our current schedule stays the way that it is- either the Texas or BC series will get moved or cancelled eventually. We have no incentive to double up on P5 games two years in a row.

From the great Tony Gerdeman of The Ozone

Much earned respect to the ozone and Gerdeman. The tip sheet and michigan monday are weekly gold and the (can't remember the exact name) Opposing Quarterbacks Club was a hilarious read.

Yeah, Tony for me was the OG when it came to hilarious, spot on Buckeye web writing. I found Tony long before I found 11W.

Friend of mine is Georgia fan and we’re both Bears fans. Draft day bears get a couple more Bulldogs. My friend says, “Pace loves them bulldogs”. I replied “must be why the bears haven’t won a big game in....forever”.

Woah cowboy. Georgia is a top 4 - 5 program now. They will be reckoned with for years to come. One dumb play last year for being in Playoffs two years in a row. 

They have THE best OL in CFB. With Fromm, they will be scary good. Could beat Bama.

“Could beat Bama”  Not likely while Kirby “ not too” Smart is head coach. He is the James Franklin of the SEC.

It was. Unfortunately for the Jackets, Rask is scorching hot right now. Biggest reason why Boston won.

Rask was the best player on the ice, followed closely by the goalpost. I swear between games 4 5 and 6 we hit 10 posts.

Sorry Urban, Woody is still my favorite

Brendon White will be great at the Bullet. He showed a lot last year in a poor scheme. With a much better plan this season, he should really shine.

I did have the same reaction, but you're wrong about it being a dumb concept.  It's brilliant and I bet the guy is making bank on it even though he is not beautiful enough to be on it.

1. Playing Bama in a home-and-home would be eximious, but I doubt if it will happen.

2. Eddie was in Columbus as part of a touring Chicago production last year. 

3. The Rose Bowl MVP will star in the Bullet position. Wint will surprise many as his back up. 

Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

I wish I had that much time to dedicate to golf. Would be easier if it was my career...but I'd need to dedicate more time to golf for it to be my career. Maybe Happy Gilmore is looking for a new caddy.

The Buckeyes will do with Brendon White on defense what Michigan tried to do with Peppers, only they're going to maximize his ability and put him in the best positions to succeed and not waste a bunch of reps with him at running back or kicker, or whatever.

Bama would only play Ohio State in a one off game within 300 miles of Tuscaloosa, they're NOT coming to Columbus, ever.

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

I don't know what are lower: the odds I make it until 2031, or the odds this game is actually played.

Perish the thought, Kevin. I pray that we're ALL still around in another 12 years.

Go Bucks. Forever.

The Oklahoma/Georgia home-and-home series will be interesting. 

If Georgia gets the first home game THEN you definitely know Georgia is going to pull the good ol' Dixie Waltz and ask for a neutral site game or cancel the series so that they don't have to go to Norman. 

Yayyyyyy Buckeyes!!!!!

Not a fan of Michael Drake. Unimpressed with how he handled the Zach Smith situation. I think most of us can agree on that. Just sayin'...

HS
Arizona_Buckeye's picture

Seriously - I don't think there is anything more intense than the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  I moved to Arizona a couple of years before the Jackets came into existence, and although I am a Bruins fan (adopted by marriage after Gretzky retired), I have to say it is awesome to see how Columbus has embraced and supports this team!  It was an intense battle but in the end, Tuukka was just too much all series long - he reminds me of Grant Fuhr during Edmonton's reign.  I don't follow the Jackets, but what is the talk about Bobrowski's last season?  The dude put up a great goalie performance and can't believe they'd kick him out... but, what do I know

Right or wrong, I blame Drake for Urban leaving.  He hung UFM out on a limb.  The guy is a clown who talks out of both sides of his mouth.  We lost a legend and this dude still has a job.

Again, Drake is the clown, not some jackass who never attended the university, who will never be as respected, who will never even matter to this university as Drake. Good job guy. But yeah, football matters more than educational integrity.

Everyone's entitled to their opinion, but I do think it's wild how the entirety of some people's opinions and perceptions of Michael Drake are built on how he handled that one situation when in reality athletics makes up about 2-3 percent of the university's overall budget. I think he generally does a good job at actually running an academic institution and fundraising and such, which is the vast, vast majority of his job.

Buckifan4Life's picture

"That one situation" exposed him in ways that academics and fundraising work doesn't. Yep, we are all entitled to our opinions...
