MEMBER SINCE   November 22, 2015

My dad got me started early. I grew up on Corny Greene, Archie and Cousineau. I was in the stadium the day Keith Byars lost his shoe at the 50. I got drunk for the first time in my life at the Varsity Club and Hineygate when I was nine years old and at a game with my dad. I still tear up when I hear Carmen Ohio...and I am not even an alumnus. The Band is holy and Woody is God.

My dad used to drive down from Findlay for games and we would park at the Holiday Inn in the parking garage.  We'd arrive in Columbus at 5:45 AM and he'd hit the bar for his rum and cokes.  We'd go over to Conrad's and he would get a new pin for his hat and I'd get a new shirt or a hat.

Man, getting old sucks

Took my stepson to his first OSU game against Oklahoma for the "First Annual Baker Mayfield Flag Planting" game and we left at the end of the third quarter.  It was a great day with a shitty ending.

Personal opinion, but I think Juwan Howard is going to kill it in Ann Arbor.  He's still young enough that he can relate to the kids.  He's been in and around the NBA for a couple of decades, so he knows how to run an offense and how to score.  He's been an assistant coach to the guy who had to manage the insane egos of Lebron, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh and still won three titles, so some of that had to rub off on Howard and he will be able to deal with immature and selfish high school age kids.

*LB: Jaheim Thomas (OH), Antoine Sampah (VA), Justin Flowe (CA), Jaylen Harrell (FL), Kalel Mullings (MA), Phillip Webb (GA), William Mahon (NY), Cullen Coleman (NY), Mitchell Melton (MD)*

I still say Coach Washington should keep an eye on Findlay (OH) LB Aidan Eubanks.  I realize he's from a smaller school, but power lifting 500 pounds and running an NFL timed 4.75 40 are pretty solid numbers.

U Toledo and BGSU are interested right now.  Just wait until the season starts and he's out there causing havoc.

Why not?  Pittsburgh is only a short 185 mile drive from Columbus and Syracuse is as close to the Atlantic coast as Altoona, Pennsylvania is.  Neither of these teams are anywhere near the Atlantic coast.

I know I keep on mentioning this kid, but y'all just don't know.

Aidan Eubanks at Findlay High School just finished up his junior season.  Led the team in tackles with 59 and only played in eight games (injured his ankle against Toledo Central Catholic and sat out the season ender vs. Cavon Butler and Whitmer).  He is totally committed to football.  Runs a 4.65.  Squats 450.  Benches 350.  He is a linebacker and he is going to be a monster come late August next year.

Wherever he goes, he will be a difference maker.

I bought the Colonel Taylor Four Grain at the Buffalo Trace distillery.  Maybe one of the best expenditures I've made in a while.

This is about to get really ugly. I have suspicions that there is a lot more shoes about to drop and that we haven't seen the worst of it yet. Shelley Meyer is an OSU employee. If she knew about the domestic violence, she was required to report it. Failure to do so opens her up to disciplinary action and the university to all kinds of failure to report allegations. This could cost OSU a hell of a lot more than just a football coach.

This is supposed to be a pic of you and I at the Dubgate from 2016. It was great to meet you and I wish you the best of luck in your pursuit!

When I was just a wee lad, Archie was a star.  When I was three or four, I knew all the words to the Buckeye Battle Cry except for one stanza.

"In old Ohio, there's a team a team that's known throughout the land.

Eleven Warriors, brave and bold, who's fame will ever stand.

And when the ball goes over ARCHIE will reach the sky

Ohio Field will hear the sounds of the Buckeye Battle Cry!"
