I agree with all of the folks who say..no matter where you live, if you see the Buckeye logo.. it's O H time! I still have friends from my college days that text me during the games with... What are they doing!! Throw the ball!! Put (insert current backup QB here) in the game!! My phone was on fire during the latest OSU/TTUN game this past season... My UCLA grad hubby was all.. what is wrong with you people!! I guess I would have to say what is wrong with us is.. WE'RE BUCKEYES!! :)))
Now I'm confused.. what will CBS do with the "Zion Cam"??
Good stuff, Johnny! Just remember though... Skully Stans Some of us are Skully Sallys!! :)))
So proud of these guys and the coaching staff! Looking forward to next season!! Now begins the long wait for football.. :))
Sending this wish out into the stratosphere... Please let CJ Jackson have the game of his life tonight!! Thanks and Amen.. :) Go Bucks!!!
Thanks! More freshman wall woes, I'm thinking. Hope he can shake it.. !!
Just caught the last few minutes, but by the Box Score Muhammed only played a few minutes... did something happen to him?? great game Bucks!! Beat Houston..:))
Maybe he could enter the portal from NYC to Columbus and be ready to play with the team this Friday! He still has eligibility, right?? :))
Everybody dance now! So proud of this team! Go Bucks! The mommy in me wants to put them in the Final Four of my bracket.. sigh.. :)
Yes! But I am a rose colored glasses fan.. I always think they will win.. :)) It would be sweet to follow up the ass beating that the football team handed out with a basketball beat down as well! Go Bucks!!
The silver lining is really great playing experience for the young guys.. I'm still watching and cheering and I hope the attendance doesn't drop too much. These kids need that support when they are playing at home. Go Bucks!!
I think we were all better off not knowing about the "portal"! Every time I read or hear about it, I'm reminded of the old TV show, The Twilight Zone. These players enter as a Buckeye and come out as a Hurricane, Mountaineer or some other frightening creature.. SMH! :)))
I'm no basketball genius, but here's an observation. The Big Ten this year is so much better. We are now missing Bates-Diop, Tate and Dakish. There is not a glue guy on this team yet, that guy that handles the floor. Jackson and Woods just don't have that type of personality. The younger guys are still feeling their way. Young and K Wesson have improved their game, but I'm not sure they are leaders either. Bottom line.. they have hit a rocky patch here and hopefully the players get mad, have a player's only meeting and get busy. I think this season just might be the season we thought we would have last year. I still love them, support them and will faithfully watch their games. Even tho these games have been hard to watch.. it is still better than the past few seasons.. looking at you Marc Loving.. Go Bucks!!
Your wife is a wise woman!! :))
This stuff is preferable to endless Zack Smith garbage.. but the Mommy in me wants to send both of them to their rooms minus their electronic devices, so they can think about what they've done!! :))))
FWIW Wikipedia has him listed already as Defensive Backs coach at Ohio State. Maybe that plus the Co tag??
I'm going to do what I did last year.. watch the Ohio State vs Oregon championship game! I might even make it a double and lead into the championship game with OSU vs Alabama!
Ok.. big girls don't cry.. but I did get a little misty thinking about Urban's last game! I am hoping to see some Rose Bowl records broken as we play this epic game!! I am thinking that this will be the most watched bowl game this season because the haters will tune in to see if tOSU and Urban lay an egg and the faithful will want to see the ending of an era and the beginning of a new one. Have a safe New Year's Eve if you venture out and a very Happy New Year!! Go Bucks!!!
We really do have to win this game big.. I am getting a lot of smack talk from my neighbors and friends out here. One guy told me this was my chance to see how real football is played. I wanted to tell him we already saw how real football is played when we made Oregon cry and sniffle.. but I was good.. :)) So big party to watch the game and I will be the only one wearing scarlet and grey! Go Bucks!!
Yesterday was a football hot mess.. starting with UM-Gators and moving on.. I don't know what the answer is, but that was some crappy football... I don't think it represented the four best teams, obviously. I'm with the crowd wishing that Ohio State was playing Georgia. I'm excited to see the Rose Bowl, but 5 vs 6 makes more sense... if anything about the playoffs makes sense this year. I just want the Buckeyes to send Urban across the street to his new office with a monster win. I'm also looking forward to the Ryan Day chapter. I think he has the chops to continue to grow this program. The Michigan game was the beginning of the next era.. at least it felt like that to me. Go Bucks!!
I love the idea of Urban being around. He is a Buckeye all the way! As far as the Xichigan fans commenting on Urban's new job... shouldn't they be more interested in how their silly football team is going to win their bowl game when half the team won't be there?? They need to worry less about Ohio State and more about taking care of their own "business". Go Bucks!!
I am excited about and dreading the UCLA game.. The hubby is a UCLA grad.. uh oh..:)) He does admit that Holtmann is a great coach, of course not as good as John Wooden... (rolling my eyes).. lol
Wish we would see more stories like this one and fewer stories about the Duke freshmen. Not taking away from those freshmen.. they are talented, of course.. but they are just a blip on the college basketball radar... guys like Joey show what it is like to be all in and be the best teammate you can be... Happy that he is a co-captain and hope to see him playing some minutes.. he's earned it!!
I'll be sorry to see him go, but happy at the same time.. he has real talent and amazing potential! On top of it all.. he seems like a very nice young man. I don't like to think about what this past season would have looked like without him. "When we needed him the most.. etc" Go get paid!!
Kudos to all the student athletes! Job well done!
