Buckeye BadDog

Naples, Florida (via Columbus, Ohio)

MEMBER SINCE   July 17, 2014

I was born on campus - at the Ohio State Hospital - and grew up just outside of Columbus near New Rome (Lincoln Village). I graduated from Westland HS in 1979, lived in a house at Norwich & Fourth for a while (Just a short walk down Iuka Ave to the Oval and the center of the Universe), and then moved to Naples, Florida in 1983. I have been down here ever since, but while I am out of Ohio, Ohio has NEVER been out of me. I have a "Buckeye" room in my house where my Godson slept whenever he came to stay with us - which worked because he is almost as big a Buckeye fan as I am. As a matter of fact, as Carlo Hyde came off the field in his last game at Naples HS, my Godson gave him his prized Buckeye nut and told him that it was great that he was going to be a Buckeye soon.

No one ever just get's put on the top of the hill, and no one stays there just because they want to. It's a grind to get there, and harder to stay there. We have lost some great talent this year, but honestly, has there been an off-season over the past 20 years that we couldn't have said that? Some more than others, I'll admit, and this year is a bit rougher with the departure of Coach Meyer, but life goes on. Coach Meyer has helped to strengthen a fortress here, and he has chosen his successor. It is now in the hands of the new coaching staff, the returning players and new recruits. I have faith in the system working exactly as it was designed. 

Next man up.
