In the 11W game since November 2006, Chris has seen the site grow from the days of one or two posts to the coverage bonanza you experience today. A lifelong Columbus resident, his love for Ohio State was instilled at an early age by a Pop that spoke of Ohio State football and basketball with a professor's insight creating a passion now channeled through our corner of the Buckeye blogosphere. When not at home with his lovely wife and daughter, Chris spends time at the golf course, collecting vinyl records and chasing Phish across the country.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: It's a tie. I'm a diehard Buckeye and Yankee fan so...
    1. Seeing Ohio State beat Miami for the one and only national title of my lifetime
    1A. Seeing the Yankees win the '96 series. It wasn't the first of my lifetime but the first since I began religiously following them in 1983 when Mattingly was called up for good from Columbus.

It could. I didn't have concrete criteria but I didn't list this game or the 1997 Rose Bowl or a few others because they were really one-possession games. Yes, OSU did technically "come back" but one score deficits weren't deemed as worthy for my list, I suppose.

I think the trade makes a ton of sense. We'Il see if Ball becomes a great leader but either way I think Magic saw enough from Russ to surmise that he wouldn't become a great leader. 

Maybe more importantly, Magic is looking for a pass first floor general to help attract, and fit in with, two max contract scorers next offseason. 

Regardless of your feelings on Magic, he's not giving up a young 18/5 guy unless there are some red flags and/or he's a non-fit for the 2-4 year plan.

Doss was definitely considered. I didn't really factor in his coming back for senior year but that was obviously a boss move to come back and deliver a title. Splitting hairs with probably a dozen guys after my first four.

I bet Kurt Kittner has Doss on his list too!
