As a born son from Canton, Ohio...I take offense to this statement. Some areas of Canton are rough, like any other rust belt mid major city, but the area and neighborhood around the HOF is very pleasant.. I'm wondering where this 'dump' is coming from?  Furthermore..I've been to the CFB HOF and Atlanta many times...just three weeks ago in fact. You cannot walk 100 yards anywhere around Centennial Park without getting hit up by panhandling crackheads, methheads, and winos. Was hit up at least a half dozen times from the Aquarium to the HOF. You can have that 'dump' and the traffic too.

Tressel was sticking with Zwick and he was just terrible. Iowa could have named the score that game. This is also the game Herbstreit lit into Tressel and his offense and ingratiated himself to a %-age of OSU fans even to this day.

on the bright side..Zwick was so bad they finally gave Troy Smith a shot. Who knows how bad it might have gotten if somebody didn't realize there  was a Heisman winner on the bench.

I forgot a few..1987 and 1988 vs Indiana..Darkest Day and Darkest Day ll....extremely painful to watch...and 1999 Mich St (7-23) was the most lopsided 16 pt loss I ever witnessed. Never in the game.

Comment 24 May 2019

1993 Mich, 1994 Pen St, 2004 Iowa, 2006 Fla (NC), 2008 USC,  2016 Clemson, 2017 Iowa, and 2018 Purdue. I can stand seeing the Buckeyes lose now and then..but total ineptitude or giving up will make me turn it off.

yep...and they never got to celebrate.

I like the mixture of both suck and heartbreak the last 17 years. I mean I enjoyed the Appy State win almost as much as a Buckeye win. The Sparty blocked punt TD with no time remaining...pure ecstasy.

125 Lee (IA) tech fall Heinselman (OSU)    Iowa 5 - OSU 0

133 DeSanto (IA) tech fall or MD Pletcher (OSU) Iowa 10/9 - OSU 0

141 McKenna (OSU) MD Turk (IA)  Iowa 10/9 - OSU 4

149 Jordan (OSU)   dec Lugo (IA)    Iowa 10/9 - OSU 7

157 Young (IA)  dec Hayes (OSU)     Iowa 13/12 - OSU 7

165 Marinelli (IA)  MD Romero or Campbell  (OSU)  Iowa 17/16  - OSU 7

174 Smith (OSU)  dec  Shaw (IA)    Iowa 17/16 - OSU 10

184 Martin (OSU) dec Wilcke (IA)    Iowa 17/16 - OSU 13

197 Moore (OSU)  dec Warner (IA)   Iowa 17/16 - OSU 16

285 Stoll (IA)  dec  Singeltary (OSU)  Iowa 20/19 - OSU 16

157 and 174 could go either way. Heinselman or Pletcher might not give up that many points..or could get pinned. Marinelli could possibly earn more than a MD. Martin or Jordan might earn bonus....it would be close...Iowa looks to be better on paper.

Most TTUN fans believe that they do not even actively recruit these types of marginal 'scholar-athletes'

I think it was put in writing somewhere that OSU roster has higher SAT/ACT scores on average than TTUN....maybe not even close.

Comment 23 Jan 2019

Mussina and Petitte have almost identical records. Mussina's 5 gold gloves was a plus. Petitte has top 3 post season numbers. Petitte admitted juicing for an injury.....I hold that a little different than every day enhancement use...but even then..Bonds and Clemens did enough before and after juicing to get in.

Comment 18 Jan 2019

UFM is not going anywhere that will preclude him from watching Nate play baseball the next 4-5 years. He has said this is his #1 priority right now...not coaching another fb team across the country.

Urban and Shelley have the big picture in mind. Retirement from the state of Ohio at 62+ is also a factor. It is IMO, way more likely UFM will soon become AD at OSU (or Cincy or BG) than coach anywhere.

I can't imagine Urban wanting to do anything that would prevent him from watching OSU play...studio analyst would be my guess. A network like FOX cutting into Gameday would cause the biggest stir ..and a big personality like UFM would turn the most channels.

just walking around people watching is great fun. Walk through a bunch of casinos

Walk through the Venetian and catch the live play/opera or take a canal boat ride

Bellagio Conservatory Gardens and shops.

Flamingo Gardens

Comment 12 Jan 2019

almost all legitmate colleges require a minimum credits earned at that institution before they put their name atop aan undergrad diploma.

Tate could be completing his OSU diploma 'online'.

My youngest son graduated in 6 semesters with a degree in Physics..so the 'easy' major argument is not necessarily true ( 1 yr of credits while in HS)

When I played..coaches 'encouraged'  players to take only 12-15 hrs during the season because of the time demands, so summers were used to catch up academically

Players today do not have to take summer semester classes..but if they do and take a full schedule (12 credits) they get full room and board and real cost of attendance $$...which amounts to what most would make on a summer job.

I hope Tate does indeed graduate and not use the Zach Smith deal...but .most people will use any angle they have to further their careers

On eaches best day..Clem and Bama better. On anyone's off day vs. the other's best day..who knows. Syracuse gave Clem a game and Ga gave Bama a game..and both those teams were either equal to or less talented than OSU.

Without Thayer Munford at LT...I don't think OSU would be capable of playing their best or what would be needed to hang with those two.
