Capt. Kline 12th Warrior


Retired in East Tennessee (via Fremont, Ohio)

MEMBER SINCE   February 03, 2015

Ohio born, still loyal to Browns, Buckeyes and Indians. Long, long time lurker. Played H.S. ball with and against guys that played for Woody and Bo. Only site I look to for Buckeye info. Have always enjoyed the "dry wit", intelligence, sarcasm and humor from all. Had to live in **ichigan for work, through the Cooper years. Then Tress came along, last ten years up there were glorious.

Favorites

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Met both Woody and Bo at a banquet honoring two All-Americans from hometown, (Brudzinski, Lytle). While living in state up north, attended a dinner that Tress got recognition from Duffy Daugherty Foundation. Dantonio was also present. Have both their signatures on the Dispatch's front page day after '02 championship. Dino even added "Go Bucks". Worst moment - in the upper deck, right field, on the 15 yard line for "Red Right 88".

Tress was the guy...."Proud in the classroom - Proud for the State - and especially on the football field in Ann Arbor 2** days from now"

He was not the "name" coach we all wanted, but after that comment and building the recruiting wall around OHIO........

I am damn glad I can wear/display my Buckeye Gear with pride.

Urban took it to a higher level and now Ryan has taken it to the next level.

After all the "name" coaches that emerged/recycled from the media at the time, my only thought after I saw that video of Tress reminding me of Jimmy Duggan of the Rockford Peaches.

"We're gonna' win. We're gonna win!"

What a legacy/tradition he started for all of us!

We should all use that phrase more often, in good or bad times.

I agree with all those choices. That win in 2012, after Tatgate, Tress cheating on raffles/s, the suspensions, the talking heads and all the other associated bullshit. I was standing, clapping and tearing up as that game ended. 

That was a redeeming win for the OSU football program, which has continued until this day.

Happy 2999 and hope we have many more.....F**k tTUN

One of my all-time favorites also.

We stuffed all the "OSU has no chance against the ducks" right back in all the so called "xperts" asses.

In addition, he wrote several of his West Point classmates, all leaning towards the "south"and explained the reasons why they were headed to a great loss before the war erupted. Stated that the Northern states could out produce the south in men, logistics, armament, and virtually everything that would be required

 "At first you will make headway, but as your limited resources begin to fail, shut out from the markets of Europe as you will be, your cause will begin to wane. If your people will but stop and think, they must see in the end that you will surely fail."

He was crazy and Grant was a drunk, as the newspapers deemed them, "Uncle Billy" was spot on his prediction.
