but Urban Meyer might coach Penn State or Notre Dame right now

I just threw up in my mouth, and not just a little. Not because I can't imagine us not having Urban here, but because the thought of him coaching either of those two sounds hideous!

I'd rather think that he would have just stayed on at ESPN as an analyst. I'd rather think that he was only going to coach again if he was offered at tOSU.

I really hope Dontre makes it. I was always dissappointed in him on the field as a Buckeye, but he never gave up. Best of luck to him.

Looks like Jourdan Lewis just smacked the moral superiority argument away from all the bum juices up north. Not that they had that argument to begin with.

I realize our hockey team is pretty solid and stands a chance to make the 16-team NCAA tourney, but the only game I went to we completely outplayed the skunks but got shut out 1-0. It was very frustrating. 

That was my first OSU hockey game, too. I guess I'm just bad luck.

Ohio State fans pounded Miller Lite, Coors Light, Bud Light, and Land-Grant in the Shoe last year. If craft brew isn't your thing, fine. Somebody still needs to explain Miller Lite over Bud Light.

So senior tag is underway and there is a team named Bud Lightyears. And another called "Our Drinking Team has a Senior Tag Problem" So maybe ask them haha

What is senior tag? I need clarification because right now I'm envisioning a bunch of high schoolers running around tagging senior citizens

HS
BurningRiverBuckeye's picture

SPD, you answered from the wrong account...

HS
Soulpatroldaughter's picture

Funny. Seniors in high school form teams of 6. You pay $15 toward the pot. There is a bracket so each week from Sunday at midnight until Friday at midnight you play the team you are up against. Nerf guns are the weapons. Rules as follows:

Whichever team has the most players left at the end of the week advances.

If you are naked you are "safe" and can't get out. 

Must have a highly inappropriate team name.

Must video all attacks to send to the judges to avoid any disputes.

And pretty much those are the only rules. Just a bunch of high schoolers running around town for 6 weeks shooting each other/ hiding in their houses.

That’s right, in college this past season, opposing quarterbacks would have fared better simply by throwing the ball into the turf than they actually did from going after Conley and Lattimore

I do not have time at the moment to watch the 24 minute documentary about Fenn's Treasure, but I plan to later. That is some story about the hidden treasure, which one has to wonder if it does really exist, but I think I believe it is out there somewhere. I have never been a treasure hunter (nor a millennial like the authors/searchers), but something about that story is intriguing to me I have to admit. 

DJ, I love the Skullys for the OSU info and takes of course, but nary a day goes by without at least one, and usually more than one, of the WMD's being extremely interesting. Thank you for that my man.

I second the comment about he WMD's.   There is always at least one each day that really piques my interest (and causes me to spend 30 minutes delaying the start of actual work).  

I imagine it takes longer to find 4 or 5 decent WMD's each day than it does to write half of the Skully content.

Fencing! I've always wanted to fence. Maybe one day.

I took fencing as one of my first GECs at The Ohio State University. It was one of the best classes ever. After watching so many action movies and period shows with sword fights that you think it might be easy and that you will be a swashbuckler. It was good for the ego in that, it makes a 19 year old man humble getting thoroughly beaten by the 70 year old instructor who makes you look like you're wearing cement shoes as you "fence".

Its not surprising, and I have no problem with it. Its been proven a long time ago that incarceration does little to rehabilitate criminals, so the real purpose is to keep them away from the general public. I don't really care how those means are accomplished and if it can be done without using my tax dollars or a minimum amount, thats even better.

NavyBuckeye91's picture

Some eye-watering stats on Conley and Lattimore. I'm excited to see them perform on Sundays.

Thanks for including Josiah Powell from Navy on that list, DJ. I was surprised to see him so high. Not sure how or why PFF was tracking him. I love the kid, but he's an outside linebacker with little to no pro prospects. Nonetheless, I always enjoy seeing David competing well on the battlefield with Goliath. It's why we play the game. 

Ohio High School lacrosse season officially begins tomorrow. Good luck to all the men's and women's teams playing their first games Friday night. May the odds be ever in your favor.

I'll agree. Bud Light makes me physically not feel well after even 2 beers, and I don't like the taste either. Not that Miller Lite is a lot better, but I don't feel like my esophagus is gonna fall out after drinking it.

It's hard for me to wrap my non-gorilla smoothed brain around the "What ifs?" involving the alternate timeline where Pryor commits to Duke. Would Jim Tressel still coach in Columbus? I don't think so, but Urban Meyer might coach Penn State or Notre Dame right now.

Don't mess with the space-time continuum.

HS
causeicouldntgo43's picture

Miller Lite and Bud Light brand awareness were built on huge, huge doses of television advertising back in the day, that and the lack of a craft beer market at the time. So if you were "raised" on them, they still taste OK on a hot summer day or when you want to cut back on a few calories. When I'm in that mood, I now prefer a nice American owned&made Yuengling Light  - I think it has better taste and color than Bud or Miller. 

HS

Correct. In the light beer realm, Yuengling Light is severely underrated...the Lager is divine...especially with a bushel of crabs.

I knew and loved Raekwon. He was a great linebacker and a better man. He will be missed dearly by Buckeye Nation if the Patriots draft him.

I would much rather the Patriots draft him than the browns (and possibly the Bengals). At least with the Patriots he has a chance at success.

Belichek has shown an affinity for Urbans players in the past if I'm not mistaken. I'd say the odds are pretty good NE ends up with a Buckeye this year, considering they didn't grab any last year.
