Thumbs up to Jeremy for using the old-school term, "doofy!"

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

Damn you, beat me to it

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Great word "doofy". You are not just a "doofus", you've got a touch of "goofy" too.

First and goal at the five and Arch is getting the ball.

"Doofy" was an audible in HS football. We had a guy whose nickname was "Doofy Dan." He played right guard and if a play was called to go left and the QB wanted to change it to the right side, he'd call out "Doofy" before starting the snap sequence. Conceptually, it was a good idea, but execution usually came up short.

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

That's fantastic. I remember reading Highlights when I would go to the doctor's office. What a blast from the past!

Love that he uses the word “doofy”

13 sacks. I was surprised to read that. I am pretty sure most of our prized DL/DE recruits didn’t have that many.

Welcome, young man! We're hoping your coaches can turn the best tight end in high school into the GREATEST NCAA  tight end. (And a first round pick)

“My dog got out and we couldn't find him, so a couple coaches that were visiting drove around town looking for my dog and screaming his name.”

This had to be Harbaugh and one of his assistants. 

Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted.

Now I'm wondering what was the dog's name? "Doofy," perhaps?

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

If you’re in the know, who went out looking for the dog?

HS

Harbaugh was probably doing that when the dog was in the house.

So, kicker because of the pressure. Nice to know the kid isn't afraid of pressure. Unlike...nm.

Fire Island over Montauk - absolutely spot on!

Can't wait to see this fellow Long Islander play.

Welcome to Buckeye Nation!

Now for a quick lesson. Despite the dominance our local team has had over ttun since the turn of the century, there is a reason it remains THE GAME.

The end of each regular season sees our beloved Buckeyes take on a team that we hate. That hate runs deep. Most young people not living in the battle ground don't know the full magnitude of this rivalry and by looking at the Win/Loss column lately it's easy to understand why. Let me take you on a journey back in time to help explain why a victory of *ichigan will never get old, and why I will never look past them.

That picture coincides with the first time I ever heard my father say the phrase "Fuck You." He was speaking through the tv to a person no older than 22.

Still makes me sick.

Having to see magazine covers like this, while my friends who were fans of ttun, got to have bragging rights seemingly every year.

So young fella, these instances don't even begin to scratch the surface of why we hate that team and why we demand that they are pounded into submission year in and year out. No amount of victories will ease the pain of the 90s. The Buckeyes missed out on at least 2 National Championships because we could not beat them when we had superior teams in terms of talent. 

We are relying on you to help carry the legacy forged by on Jim Tressel and carried on by Urban Meyer. 

Your goals are constantly revised according to circumstance, but your purpose, your real reason for being , that supersedes everything.
- Jim Tressel

Amen. Come with the hate, but come with respect. And come with an edge.

The 90's to start, absolutely.

But history lives on.

So the Ten Year War, 1969, The Snow Bowl of 1950, starting 0-13-2 from 1897 to 1918, and so on.

Hindsight is, and in, 2020

Dontre was from Texas and he knew that once a scum weasel circle-jerk forms around you, the only option is fisticuffs.

I understand your passion but he is not from this area and other games might mean more to him. He already has said he doesn't get why they are rivals.

What other sports do you play, and what have you gained as a football player from a multi-sport background? - OSU992

JR: “Basketball, baseball, volleyball and soccer. Every sports ties into football in its own way. Without the others, I'd be a

doofy 6-foot-5 kid that can't run right.”

Great question 992... and rational, relational response.  Fitting things together, rather than accepting or rejecting, goes to the significance and meaning of 'cohesion' ... and the never-ending choices in 'running right'.

Glad to see Jeremy played D in football, as well as other sports.  Playing defense helps smack down the prima donna that 'emerges' from our humble ego from time to time.   ;-{)}

We have this guy for three years. He will see action next year and I'm looking forward to him making an impact. Big upside and that's putting it mildly. Sounds like he has been studying Rob Gronkowski. I suggest our offensive brain trust do the same.
