Born and raised in Columbus, OH. Went to Grove City HS, where I played football. Went into the Marine Corps after high school and I was stationed in Washington DC. Stayed in DC after I got out and have been enjoying life to the fullest!


  • SPORTS MOMENT: I was part of some really good high school football teams while at Grove City. We were near the top rankings in the state and country. My junior year we played Troy who had Ryan Brewer. It was an offensive slugfest that we wone 43-45, but it was amazing! Ryan Brewer scored about 4-5 different ways. My senior year we went undefeated and were ranked #1 in OH, #6 in the country before we lost in the playoffs in the 2nd round. We played a big game vs Canton McKinley and a couple games in the Crew's stadium. Insane atmospshere!

Dude, you live in one of the best BBQ areas in the country... stop by one and pick up some NC BBQ (I know that Smithfield's sells tailgate packages with pulled pork). Get a  tins with the disposable heaters ($5 a party supply store) and BOOM... you are eating some good pulled pork and somewhat tailgating!! I live near DC and when we travel south down I-95, we always stop by Smithfields and get some great BBQ togo! We also pick up a few quarts of pulled pork, Brunswick stew and sweet tea for the road as well! They even pack it on ice for you!

That's also more than the rest of the rest of the top 5 recruiting classes COMBINED!! Great Job Buckeye Coaches!!

Comment 28 Jul 2016

Quick question, has anybody actually played that hasn't had their stripe removed?? If not, who was the closest (stripe removed and then played in a game)?

Can they suit up for the game with a stripe in their helmet??

Comment 28 Jul 2016

I think Jordan will be the next, but after that...

1) McCall: I think this kid has the talent and work ethic to be the "Percy Harvin" prototype!!

2) Victor: Mack getting his stripe removed this Spring will motivate him!! Gonna be a beast alongside Mack and TG!!

*Bosa will be around the 5th-8th to get his removed. Urban will make him work for it to show he isn't going to be given anything, which I have no doubt Nick will be just fine with. BTW, I think he will be better than Joey!!  

Comment 19 Jan 2016

This kid is the real deal!! He'd be a great addition, but still just icing on the cake. We NEED a DT and DB. We have McCall who is a beast and would play the same positions as Hardman. Don't get me wrong, I'd take him in a heartbeat as he amazing speed and a quick burst of speed!! Almost seems like he goes straight from 1st gear to 5th!! Also, he has a long stride like Ginn! Hope Urban can land him!

I wouldn't say they are set for life due to the taxes, agent fees, etc.

They can be if they play their cards right. They can use that money remove the major financial burdens that most of us have (mortgage, car, student loans, etc...). Maybe they didn't finish their degree, but they can always go back, free of charge now due to new OSU rules, and finish their degree. You want to leave when your ceiling is the highest. I do wish some of them would come back as I think they can improve their draft rank, especially Jalin, but I don't blame them.

If you are second guessing their motives, you don't have to look too far for the best example... our own Greg Oden! He was the #1 overall pick in the NBA draft and will never have to worry about money. He got hurt in preseason and had to have several major knee surgeries. If he had returned to college, he may have gotten injured and never drafted.

BTW, I'm pretty sure that the NFL has a retirement pension plan. Players have to put in 10% of their salary for at least 3 years and then they get a yearly payout. Don't know the details or how accurate it is, just heard about it while talking to some people.

I was thinking of doing the same thing myself as I love the various helmets. Interested to see how yours turns out. Good luck!

Comment 02 Nov 2015

My heart says:  #1 OSU, #2 Clemson, #3 LSU, #4 Baylor

My brain says:  #1 Clemson, #2 LSU, #3 OSU, #4 Baylor

I think the first three can be in any order really, they will sort themselves out in the next couple of weeks. Baylor would be interesting to see how far they drop with QB questions and NO games with the new QB yet.  I believe we stayed put at #6 after the TTUN game and the B1G Championship last year so they could see how we performed.

I think that LSU and Baylor will have a chance to move up with answering some questions this week (Baylor with QB ability and LSU vs 'Bama). Clemson needs to finish strong as the ACC is weak this year or they may drop out depending on how the SEC, & B1G end up.

I would love to put OSU at #1, but we'd need a couple more weeks of JT slinging and destroying defenses to put the doubters to rest. If OSU wins out, no way we are NOT #1 regardless of margin of victor in the last two games.

Comment 02 Nov 2015

I was just about to say the exact same thing. 2nd half will be in dark and plenty of time to tailgate beforehand.

Night games used to be prime time as a there weren't as many other games competing for viewship; hence most of the country will be seeing you play. Even if they are still considered 'primetime", it seems like now there are a ton or great "night games" (kickoff after 7pm).

I would LOVE to see him comeback, but I don't think he'll be back. He has too much to lose. He is projected as a top 5 pick, maybe even #1 pick right now. If he got hurt or something else, that could cause him to lose millions. Also, as much as he may want to play with his little brother, he will be holding him back somewhat as it will be one more DE ahead of him. Then again, maybe he would want to come back to help instruct his lil brother and try to win a NC with him.

I think it has something to do with copyright issues. I may be mistaken, but I think someone copyrighted "Black out the Shoe" or something like that. That's what I gathered from Gene Smiths interview earlier this week.

With that being said, why can't they come up with some similar name, find a couple sponsors and print up $50k shirts like Penn State does for their "White Outs"??

Comment 16 Oct 2015

45-17, us of course!

I think this team is on the verge of being the juggernaut that we have been expecting. I think the combination of a home night game + big name team + alternate uniforms = a motivated and inspired team balling out! I would say we'd win by a lot more, but PSU actually has a decent defense so I will be more conservative.

Comment 08 Oct 2015

He has the talent, size and ability that NFL scouts love!! His stats aren't great right now, but they will be when the season is over. He compares to people who were overrated, but still drafted #1!! By the seasons end, I expect Jones to be on par with most of Russell's stats!

I agree, I think this team will peak when it counts the most, similar to last year. They have the talent to blow ANYONE off the field but I hope they don't get into a position that comes back to haunt them with the underwhelming play on "O" lately. Hopefully 12 Gauge can hit his stride soon and get the Offense rolling. We can ride 'Zeke until then, but you don't want to ride him too much.

Comment 14 Sep 2015

He also said that they need to shut the heck up about OSU's schedule AND focus on beating the cupcakes they scheduled!

Comment 03 Sep 2015

Just an FYI in case you missed it, Meyer said yesterday that Parris will play a lot on Monday. The wording of your title made it seem like you were unsure how much he'd play on Monday.

  Guys like Evan Spencer and Jeff Heuerman were brought up and how well they blocked on the edge last year, and all Meyer said was "The best." He added that Parris Campbell has done a really great job recently with edge blocking and "will play a lot Monday."

I think the stadium will be loader than you think. I believe the stadium is situated in a valley so the noise echos. Also, it sits at an altitude of 2,057 feet above sea level — making it the highest stadium in the Eastern United States. Not saying this will have a profound impact on our boys, but it could make the 4th qtr harder... if its even close by then!
