I have been a Buckeye fan since I was a child, and that has been a long time . My clothes closet is full of Buckeye gear and I have a man cave that is the Buckeye Room. I have many pictures and Buckeye items hanging on the walls and sitting at other places including helmets, banners, and odd Buckeye items from different states. I had my pool table re-done in Scarlet and Gray to match the room. The thing that really stands out is the hand painted figures on the wall which include a QB passing the ball to a receiver as well as part of the field. My family has learned to always know the Buckeye Football Schedule so as to not plan any family events for that day. They once learned the hard way that neither Dad or Mom would be in attendance if the Buckeyes were playing. I love our Buckeyes and we do presently have season tickets.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: My wife and I have attended many bowl games, including the National Championship game in Arizona and New Orleans, winning most except the two mentioned. So I would have to say one of the best moments was being in Texas to see our Buckeyes win the National Championship. And, needless to say, it is always a best sports moment when we beat TTUN.

Gee was a very good President.  He may have had some faults, but who doesn’t. He was a very active supporter of everything about OSU and was publicly seen my many around campus.  He didn’t keep holed up in his office, he was out amongst the people.  Drake was a different person. He was a good President, but seemed to be out of touch with the people outside of the office.  I do believe he mishandled the Urban matter as Urban should not have received any punishment in this matter.  Now to who is the next choice.  TRESS!  He has all the qualities and capabilities needed to be the President of OSU.  The problem is, how do the Trustees feel about him.  As a side note, the Trustees shoulder a lot of blame in the Urban situation.  They didn’t have balls enough to do what was right and worried only about public perception.  It will be interesting to see who they come up with for the job.

I sure wish some Ohio State friendly law firm would take on this situation.  It would be interesting to subpoena all NCAA records relative to comparable infractions by other players from other colleges/universities to see what punishment they received.  I think there would be some real discrepancies as to how the NCAA lacks consistency.

I am a big supporter of college sports and especially the Buckeyes.  But let me play devil’s advocate.  You state that schools are making money off of selling thousands of jerseys that pertain to individual athletes.  Yes they are, but what amount of money is the college student getting, or saving, by the scholarship they are receiving for their abilities. Is this just a means for colleges to recoup some of the monies they are putting out for an athlete.  And lest we not forget, the athlete is receiving not only a free education, but free top-notch medical care, rooming and board, and free tutoring.  Not a bad deal if you ask most ordinary college students who are busting their butts to make it in college;  keeping their grades up and maintaining a job to help offset their college expenses.  So is it a bad idea to let the athletes to make money for use of their likeness?  I sure there are lots of opinions.  Mine is; don’t start the ball rolling with this idea.  Who knows what they will want next.  We already now have the “portal” to live with.

Tell it lie it is coach.  If that doesn’t fire the newbies up then they haven’t fully absorbed what it means to be a Buckeye and the meaning of THE RIVALRY.  But I am sure it won’t take them long to get it.

I can’t wait to try it out.  And all the displays will be awesome.  Maybe I should take some of my school up north friends; I wonder if they will offer Xichigan Smash Burgers, or should they be called Smash Xichigan Burgers.

I agree 100%. But If they allow it, the money they make can be used to help pay for the free tuition, food, housing and medical expenses.  That would welcome them to the real world.  You make money so you can pay for the necessities of life.
