MEMBER SINCE   February 15, 2016

I am a Father of 3 Daughters. Yea I know! Served 20 years in the US Army. I gave up on the NFL in 1993. Discovered my passion for being a Buckeye fan during the 1995 Michigan game. A negative experience but it stoked the fires inside of me. From there on I was hooked to Buckeye Football and my hatred for Michigan grew.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: My first moment was Joe Germaine to David Boston for a TD to clinch the 1997 Rose Bowl. Favorite would be the 4th down against Miami to win the National Championship. That was the first Buckeye National Championships in my life and not the only one:-)

There is an upside with Michigan schools not playing Football this year. I’m not saying it’s a sure deal or anything. We will gain on them in the all time wins department.

Comment 26 May 2020

I’m a little confused about that National Title. I truly believe FWAA is a legit poll up until 1970. But weren’t the AP and UPI National Titles awarded before the Bowl games back then? So if thats true Ohio State had no shot at the AP or UPI titles before the Rose Bowl. Oh by the way Bo was an assistant at the time for Woody. He has a lot to do with that tie. He cost OSU AP/UPI National titles in 1968, 1973 and you could argue 1961.

This is the game that made me follow Ohio State and College Football. Up until that point I was into professional sports only. I mean I knew about the rivalry. Wanted OSU to win every year. Just never watched CFB up until that point. That game and the anger that came with it sparked a fire that made me the Buckeye fanatic I am today.

Thank you Tim...

If OSU had the 12 vacated wins back from 2010 they would have a winning percentage of .732. Also OSU is 40 wins behind Xichigan. Would be 28 wins if the vacated wins were given back. Hope this clears up things.

I'm confused. Maybe I'm tired. I distinctly remember us beating PSU in 2015 with the first ever black out. In fact Meyer dominated the Big 10 7-0 vs TUN 6-1 vs Penn State 6-0 vs Wisconsin 5-2 vs MSU 5-0 vs Illinois 7-0 vs Indiana 1-1 vs Iowa 5-0 vs Maryland 3-0 vs Minnesota 4-0 vs Nebraska 3-0 vs Northwestern 2-1 vs Purdue 5-0 vs Rutgers 59-5

With the NCAA looking ban California schools from post season play. Probably won't happen.
Comment 27 Jun 2019
2014: Hands down. Lost early and the pressure was off. Watched them get better every game after that. Next thing ya know I'm screaming in the parking lot after we won the National Title. 1996: My first season watching the Buckeyes. Fell in love with OSU and CFB. Agony over loss to Michigan still haunts me. But that Rose Bowl Game sent me through the roof with happiness. 2002: Would be number one for me but the games were so stressful. Watched the game in Clarksville Tennessee with my buddy from Ohio who was a Miami fan. But a great ending and National Champions. 1998: Team was loaded. Cooper found a way to lose again. I knew after that season we would never win a National Title or beat Michigan until he was gone. Honorable meation: 2012

Comment 28 Apr 2019
Why are you only counting AP titles? The 1957 National Title Team are Champions. Coaches/UPI just as legit. Alabama 12 Titles Notre Dame 8 Titles Oklahoma 7 Titles USC 7 Titles OSU 6 Titles Really pissed me off we are below those 4 programs. We should at least be tied for 3rd!

I never thought he was an ass. He basically won us the 2002 NC with his defense. I will forever be grateful. Yes I know about 2013 and 2015.
