1.) I have several close friends that are Michigan alum and die hard wolverine fans.  Ohio State has beat Michigan so many times during our friendship, that I genuinely feel bad now with every victory.  It was hard for me to enjoy the OSU vs Michigan win in 2016 because I know the way they lost was so painful.  I'm sure once Mich finally (if ever) notches a win against OSU, those feelings will probably disappear : )

2.) Like others mentioned, the Clemson loss did not bother me.  I feel like the loss made the team hungry again.  I don't want to end up like Alabama where we just always win the natty with little to no competition.  What made 2014 so special was the heartbreaking loss the year before in the Big 10 title game (I legit cried after that), and the Va Tech loss, and coming back from that to win it all.

I have a Mech Eng degree from Ohio State.  Mech eng is great because it is one of the most general engineering majors and isn't as narrow as aeronautical or something like that.  There are a lot more job opportunities with a mech eng degree.  If she can get scholarships then I would recommend one of the prestigious schools like MIT or Stanford.  But if you are paying for this yourself, there is nothing wrong with an OSU engineering degree.  Most employers do not care if your school was ranked the 20th best engineering school vs the 30th best.  Internships and similar experience mean so much more. 

Also, once she in school I highly recommend she joins SWE (Society of Women Engineers).  She will make so many great connections through that.  So glad to see more women pursuing engineering!

I feel like people are always gonna find a way to complain when Ohio state makes the playoffs. Look at 2014..won the conference championship and still there were people whining that TCU should've been in over us.

People just don't like to see Ohio state have nice things.

Definitely singing Carmen Ohio with thousands of buckeye fans as the confetti rained down in AT&T stadium.  Watching the Buckeyes win a championship in person has been on my bucket list for awhile, and I'm glad I finally got to check that one off.

Honorable mention goes to 85 yards through the heart of the south, and the moment when Ohio State was announced as the fourth team in the playoff.  I shed some tears for both of those.  I was just so happy for the team after everything they had been through last year.

I only truly root for the other teams in the conference during bowl season.

I have some Wisconsin friends, and even though they did celebratory shots and rubbed it in when we lost in the Final Four in 2012, I decided to be the better person and support them during the tournament this season.  Plus, they already got their karma (59-0)

41-14 was awful, and so was the 2009 USC game that we should have won.  But neither of those affected me as bad as the 2013 Big Ten Championship loss to Sparty.  That stung.  After everything we had been through (tat-gate, bowl ban, losing to the SEC numerous times), OSU was finally going to make it back to the national championship.  I have several MSU and Michigan fan friends that definitely rubbed it in too.  I'll admit it, I cried after that loss, but then went home, and looked up when we played Sparty in 2014 so I could count down the days until revenge.  Needless to say, I celebrated pretty hard the night of November 8th, 2014.

On a plane heading there from the west coast. Tons of duck fans on this flight....please tell me Dallas is swarming with Buckeyes!

Where are you seeing tickets for $300 and $240 each?  I checked Craigslist and Ebay and don't see anything close to those prices.  Face value for the nosebleeds is $450.....

I regret to say I got married last year during the Cal game.   I was literally walking down the aisle during kick off.  To my defense, I had no other option because every venue was booked solid on other dates during the summer.  My bridesmaids gave me minute by minute updates, and before the reception, i snuck into a back room with my husband and was able to catch a portion of the game.  We won convincingly, which I hope means good luck for our marriage.

Yeah the only tape I remember hearing had him saying he received a tip.  I could have very well missed something though. I haven't seen any facts that indicated the "lying" was more than lying by omission.   Also, I'm not saying that lying by omission means he did nothing wrong.  Just trying to show how the facts got so blown out of proportion with Tatgate.  Some people often say "tressel lied multiple times and actively covered up many violations!"  which I feel is inaccurate.

There is a program called Hide My Ass that I used when I lived in Italy to watch the games.  It allows you to disguise your IP address or use one in the US so you can watch games on ESPN3, ect.  There is also something called a slingbox that you can use (i never had one, but my neighbor did).

I was in Canada last weekend and they were being huge a-holes about putting the games on.  I'm glad I will be in the US this weekend at my local b-dubs where I know for sure the games will be on.

Ten years ago, I was a junior at OSU and watching the game at the Buckeye Hall of Fame Grille on Olentangy.  When we won, all I remember is screams and cheering, furniture was flying, and when I came to I was underneath a table that had somehow collapsed.  My friend got hit in the head by something and we had to go to the OSU ER to get her stiches.  She still has the scar on her forehead.  I think about this game ever time I see her lol.


A cool story though happened with my Buckeye friend that lived in Arizona at the time.  He dropped another friend off at the ticket box office to pick up his ticket, and lo and behold, another ticket was stuck to the back of his friends ticket.  My friend got to use that ticket and go to the national championship for free (but obviously whoevers ticket that was got royally screwed)

Comment 27 Feb 2012

I have a question for you guys.  Is there any chance that the Buckeyes could drop to a #4 seed if they lose out?  At this point, Im just hoping to see them play in Portland, and the current bracket projections look like the 4 seeds from the big ten will be playing there

Youngstown is my hometown.  I know all too well the dangers of that city.  And it keeps getting worse and worse.  Tressel being immersed in that for years is why he feared for his players safety.
