I was told by a B1G official (who is working the Sun Bowl) that B1G crews were not allowed to work the semi-final/final games due to a B1G team being involved.  If an SEC team has our semi-final game then I'm confused.

Wisky band is planning to form script WISC to "Le Regiment" (and dot the i with a flute player) the next time we meet - that will really be a slap in the face!

Everyone has done a great job so I'll just invite you to stop by the Holland Planet Fitness (1320 S Holland-Sylvania Road near Kohl's) to say hello.  I work there 6:00am-2:00pm and then workout after (ask for Deuce).  We are real close to a Texas Roadhouse and the newest addition to the Toledo area restaurant scene Firehouse Bar & Grill ( correct name?) will be opening soon in the old Don Pablo's location.  It is owned by the Mail Pouch family of restaurants.  I didn't see any mention of the Fallen Timbers area which includes Easton-esque shopping and PF Chang's, Beer Barrel, Granite City and Red Robin.

Sorry for the redundant post, I didn't remember replying earlier - to see my original reply I was being authentic about the pizza and schrooms.

Comment 12 May 2019

In addition to #6 and #9 from the OP's list, I thought the Street Scene on campus had great deep dish pizza while I was in school (OSU '78).  The mushrooms with a horsey-mustard sauce were also great.  I was a prep-cook my senior year and hand-battered many 'schrooms and mixed up huge batches of dough for the pizzas.

Weren't Rich Rod and Brady Joke "outsiders?"  I just think they needed to hire somebody a little less flaky.  Climbing trees, sleepovers with recruits and playing catch shirtless are just strange behavior for a 50-something who just happens to be a head coach of a major college program making $8m/year.

2555+365=2,920 (ish, depending on how the calendar goes).

Comment 25 Nov 2018

+1, but glad we didn't need one!

Great pick up for the Buckeyes "IF" his knee can withstand the torture of NCAA/B1G wrestling. We saw how the knee limited NATO's success this year - I hope this works out for Dylan and the WrestleBucks!

Just for the sake of argument, let's throw in the coach of every sport coming into the same class and asking for two minutes of the prof's classtime to take attendance on their athletes.  James Franklin and Jim Harbaugh are two of the biggest narcissists in college football.

Comment 12 Apr 2018

I have several hundred game programs dating from the mid-80s, many of which have autographs.  I graduated in '78 and had 20 or 30 autographed programs from the '70s but my father took them to work back then and they never made it back home. :^{ Some of those autographs included Archie and Ray Griffin, Pete Johnson,... Several bowl game programs, ticket stubs, and other memorabilia.  I also have a good number of framed wall art, photos, paintings, collectors drinking glasses,... I don't think my kids will want my "junk" when I can no longer house it when I move into my "one-room mansion" (aka nursing home room), so I'll need to find a buyer that will pay for at least one day in my new digs.

My Drackett Tower roommate joined the Army after graduation.  After a couple deployments to Iraq and Kuwait he was stationed in Germany.  While on one of these walks he met another soldier from Ohio who just happened to be one of my former wrestlers.  They got to talking and what a coinkydink!  My former student married a fraulein and still lives in Germany.  My roommate returned to the States and received a medical discharge, presumably from the nasty toxic fumes from the desert oil wells after they were burning out of control.

Wrestling, wrestling, wrestling, then soccer (future son-in-law was 1st team B10 for the Bucks).

A shout out to Buckeyeteach - props!  I was an assistant wrestling coach for 23 years (FB for 8 years) and still officiate wrestling and football.

i do try to watch any Buckeye teams on Tv when I can.  I was disappointed that the WBB team didn't do better and wonder if MCGuff is the right coach, but I know little about basketball in general.  It seems like we are underachieving in recruiting and/or performance.
