I've been an Ohio State fan all my life. Living in Virginia, I was always a Woody Hayes fan. I used to be alone, now there are Buckeye fans all around me. Life is good.

Spooner, just wanted to thank you for this recruiting thread.  I appreciate all the work you do for it.  I just wanted to get this out before all the Booms (hopefully) this weekend.

Buck12.....Sounds like a couple of losers there.  Any chance they are Michigan fans?

Triv....I may be on welfare now if I had to wait for the coaches to sign my paper to get paid!

I'm a D1 ref in college volleyball, working in the SEC and ACC.  I realize it's not college football or basketball, but it's still a very fast game.  On the ref stand, you only have one angle, so that's what you have to go with it.  Being a ref is just hard, and refs do the best they can.  All college games, no matter the sport, are so fast that you never have time to figure which team you will try to screw one team over another.  You just see the call, blow your whistle or throw the flag, and go with what you think you saw. 

On lack of consequences, someone above mentioned that the officials get reprimanded over incorrect calls by getting less matches, or moved to a smaller conference (which equals less pay).  That poster was absolutely correct.  Hasn't happened to me, but I've seen it happen to a lot of referees.

Those who have never reffed, even a Little League game, will never understand the pressure of being an official.  It's the only job where you are expected to be perfect from your very first game.....and improve from there.

With all of that said, I'll still yell at my TV sometimes at a call!

Go Bucks.  Screw Michigan.

Never!  Never, ever.  Nope.  I'll support the Buckeyes until the very end of every game.  There's some games I wanted to not watch anymore, but felt I should stick with them.  With that, I'm old and have nothing else to do.
