Here is a graphical representation of all those "anonymous" coaches quotes...
Aghhhhhhh! It's Ohio State week!!
Jeffrey Okudah. Better late than never!
No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, [America] is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as any manner of thy friends or of thine own were; any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind. And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. - John Donne
Ramzy, I envy you such a great friend, so I will not say I'm sorry for you, for you knew him well. I'm sorry for those of us who didn't have the same good fortune.
The reason I like this one so much is because those dogs are Westies (West Highland White Terriers) and I have a Westie. He is a pure breed and AKC registered with the name "St. Andrew's Pride Brutus Buckeye." I have also taught him to bark O-H (so I can answer I-O) whenever the Buckeyes score a touchdown!
Because being an Ohio State fan feels like cheating.
DJ, truer words have rarely been written.
Regarding game start times... Johnny, you had me at "Really pisses off people in the SEC."
DJ... thank you for linking to the story about Adam Knox. He grew up in my old neighborhood, went to the same High School as I did, went into PsyOps in the Army - just as I did. He was born after I left Columbus, but my life was just an earlier version of similar experiences and places. Except that I never was asked to step us as he did, and all I ever sacrificed was time. Until I read this, I knew nothing about him. To me he was just one of far too many. Thanks to you, at least this old man will remember... and his story will never be forgotten.
The one on the left?
DJ... you need to have a discussion with the cat that picked Poopers over Hooker.
I still cannot believe someone from Cleveland would not pick a Hooker!
Was offline all last night till just now. Waking up to a 4* Ohio State Boom is one of the best things that can happen to you. Only two things are better - waking up to surprise sex from the person you love... or waking up to a 5* Boom!
At Ohio State... this is exactly what "life AFTER football" means. Probably why Woody kept him on the team. Greatness isn't always reflected in the stats. Great story. Thanks for sharing.
