Buckets At Fletcher's


MEMBER SINCE   September 16, 2016

Buckeye fan since about 1975 when my dad and grandpa would listen to Woody's teams on the radio. Grew up in Cbus area. OSU alum 1994, back when High Street was still a glorious spectacle of drunken debauchery.

Yep. I'm glad PSU pulled that one out.  Another Appy St win would've let *ichigan off the hook. Screw that. Let *ichigan carry that loss around like luggage for eternity.

This guy is one of my favorite Buckeyes of all time. This video shows why. Elite athlete and leader. And strong as hell too.

Wish the video included his sideline catch in THE Game; 2nd and 11, got hit after a 5 yard catch and ran over a guy who had leverage, and still dragged the dude about 7 yards for a first down. Statement play.

I have memories of hearing games on the radio, and seeing parts of games that Archie played. But the 1983 version of The Game is the first complete game I remember.  Thats the one that made me a huge Bucks fan. Earle turned it over on a failed Fumble-roosky play. Tomczak and Byers almost pulled off the comeback. Watched it from my 7th grade basketball coach's house with the rest of my team. I remember being stupified by a few of my teammates who were *ichigan fans. Bunch of dbags that never amounted to anything LOL.

You must work in "journalism" if you can't see the misleading narrative here. It's not what they said man. It's how they cherry pick their facts and what they DON'T say.  This how the term "fake news" became commonplace. Very few outlets tell the WHOLE story. Rather, they cherry pick the facts that fit the narrative they prescribe to. 

Comment 20 Jan 2019

That was a damn shame. Feel bad for all Saints players. Just a brutal non call, and on a play that was so obvious. Wow. That crew should be banned from NFL for life.

Comment 05 Jan 2019

Late 80's through 90's High Street was an epic scene, especially south campus. Park Alley, Fletcher's, High Energy, Mustard's, Moran's, Purity, The Bier Stueb, South Heidelberg, The Cornerstone (west side at 12th ave), and of course Papa Joe's. Or head up to north campus to Jouster's (now BW-3), The Library, The Outer-Inn, Travel Agency.

Good times. Hooking up was like fishing with dynamite. $5 buckets at Purity Mining Co (previously The Underground,and then The Pit, LOL). Kegs and Eggs at Papa Joe's on football Saturday mornings. Anyone else remember AC/DC Cult Nights at Mustard's - Tuesdays nights, every other song either had to be AC/DC or The Cult. Or spending all summer at Bernie's Distillery trying to complete the Passport - 120 import beers on tap. I still have my engraved puwter mug in a box somewhere LOL.

Upvote. This is exactly correct. To be clear, my comment was relative to the current climate and what the national narrative will be, not at all my perspective. Personally I don't need the media to stroke me or my team. I am proud of OSU regardless of what gets printed. But I would like to see deserving teams get rewarded for achieving. Unfortunately we have a freakin committee "picking" teams, so perception counts, which sucks.

Comment 31 Dec 2018

"Real Football"? That's cute isn't it. A few talking points for you if you want to stiff arm their attempts to try and talk smack:

OSU is 55-24-2 all time against the teams currently in the PAC12. 

OSU is 7-3 all time versus UW.

OSU has won the last 3 matchups, and by more than 2 TDs on average. 

Comment 31 Dec 2018

Past results obviously have no bearing on tomorrow's result. However, it is worth noting that OSU is something like 55-24-2 all time against the teams currently in the PAC12. OSU is 7-3 all time versus UW. OSU has won the last 3 matchups by more than 2 TDs on average. So excuse me for not having much respect for your program or conference out there on the Left coast.

Comment 31 Dec 2018

This is a great point. I mean, the Rose versus UW is great and all, but OSU isn't going to get any "credit" nationally for beating the Huskies. Seems OSU only gets opportunities against the "Mighty SEC and ACC" (puke) when we've had a down year a la the Citrus or Gator Bowl. 

Comment 31 Dec 2018

I am about the same age and part of me looks back and thinks it was once better. But my passion for CFB and OSU is as high as it has ever been. I have two regrets with the current system;

1 - Television firms have a complete stranglehold on the sport. They are slowly ruining it. Games are merely promotion opportunities for the next broadcast, to the point where actual play is getting skipped in favor of a promo or graphic. It's difficult to watch sometimes with the constant long commercial breaks. They spread out the bowl games so much that I'm over it by New Year's (unless OSU is involved.) 

2 - There is so much hate between fan bases now. Things used to be a little more civil and it was nice. I'm not talking versus TTUN; that hate has always been there and it will be always. I'm talking about occasional opponents from other conferences. Divisive TV announcers and this internet have turned fanbases against one another. The trash talk has become obnoxious and is a turn off for me.

Comment 31 Dec 2018

Depending on you TV broadcast provider there will be a significant delay unfortunately. The radio broadcast can be as much as 5 to 8 seconds ahead of the TV. I have heard they make devices to sync up this delay but have never explored.

Comment 29 Dec 2018

Agree but those southern boys learn that crap in the 4th grade, and no one ever corrects them on it. Can't just be satisfied that they played well and won. Nope. Gotta taunt and try to humiliate the other team too. Obnoxious. It is why I hate the southern football culture. Not because they are good, because they are HORRIBLE winners and even worse losers.

Comment 29 Dec 2018

Hoping for a 7 to 6 win filled with turnovers and penalties for both teams, and an outbreak of explosive diarrhea among the fans at the stadium. I'm talking medieval conditions in the restrooms and stands.

Comment 27 Dec 2018

Nope. Wisconsin got ZERO respect prior to this game. ZERO. Miami didn't respect them, and the media definitely didn't. All the talk was about Cryami's defense and Wisconsin's injuries, and how Wisconsin was going to struggle to move the ball. Take it all Cryami, take every inch.

By the way, that last drive was 6 minutes long all on running plays, almost all between the tackles. Nothing at all unsportsmanlike there.
