from the Toledo area. I attend OSU football and basketball games with the same regularity as church, which is once sometimes twice a year. Just got a desk job and found this website very interesting and helps the day go a little faster. Go bucks!

It's definitely a blast. Also comforting knowing Wil Buford is a few meals away from being in the Toledo area YMCA circuit. 

At one point there was a nice transition pass from Diebler to Sullinger, and then Sullinger to Craft for a layup. It took me back to brighter Basketbuck days, but I think the future is promising

Riley Keller c/o 20 from Toledo Whitmer is one to watch, kid can sling it. Played very well as a freshman, potential to be the best QB to come out of Toledo in a while, not counting Shea Patterson who moved away

Nate Miller from BGSU can play. He was a key player in everybody's favorite commentator Dan Dakich's coaching days. Would like to see Willy B, 3bler and Jamar Butler too.

I thought the rule was you could only "test the waters" once. Second time was for good. Im probably wrong though. Go Bucks!

Love to bass fish but being a NW Ohioan my fishing is mostly on Lake Erie or in the Maumee Bay part of the lake. My brother and I got a 12' aluminum boat. Ive been on it on the Lake, its not my preference but Ive done it. I prefer to get a 12 pack and take a few hours to limit out on some nice yellow perch in about a month out on Maumee Bay.

Im of the opinion that this team has to get to 22 wins to get in the tournament with winning at least 3 out of 4 against MSU, Maryland, Indiana and the Buzz Cuts. Any bad losses against those 4 could put the nail in the coffin. Oh how different of a position we'd be in if we beat Northwestern and FAU at home. Those losses will end up being very crucial, as i think they were both very winnable

Heading up to the game tonight. Father in laws friend got 4 tickets somehow. I think he bought a couple of Cokes. Just a quick hour jaunt from here, here's to a Buckeye victory, Go Bucks.

We just had 2 redshirt frosh perform admirably this season in BB Landers (***) and Dre Jones (****). Jones was a DE prospect I know but I am comfortable with our approach converting bigger Ends and with the 3 star guys that have came in. Hamilton was on the field as well as a 3* and was in triple digits at his position coming out of HS according to the experts. I think it is far from a struggle IMO.

I cant help but watch He Got Game every time I see its on tv. Absolutely love that movie. 

On the subject of sports movies, I think The Program is fairly underrated as well, wouldnt mind seeing some sort of modern remake

Comment 30 Jan 2017

25th hour starring Edward Norton, also has Phillip Seymour Hoffman,Rosario Dawson,  Anna Pacquin. Tony Siragusa also plays a role in the movie as well. Quality movie. One of my favorites

Honorable mention for me is St. Vincent, Cinderella Man, and The Town

I only hope that one day my son could embarrass me with a 4 year degree from The Ohio State University and be a 4 year letter winner there. Underachieving maybe but far from embarrassing. Same mannerisms that he had in Jr High, sometimes those things don't change.

To me, I just don't see a whole lot of guys that genuinely care if they win or lose. I see some that care if they put up numbers. Conference play at any level is a grind, and you're not going to be successful when you have to grind when you lack the character qualities this team lacks. Its unfortunate, I genuinely care for Ohio State Hoops, always will, they have a great footprint in Toledo, my first jersey I owned was a #22 Jim Jackson knockoff. It hurts to watch this sometimes, but I'll keep watching. Go Bucks
