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.

Findlay plays St. John's tonight and I have to miss the Buckeyes.  Jim Delaney needs to be keel hauled and hung from a fucking yardarm.

Fridays are for high school football.  Period.  Full stop.

Unless his arachnoid cyst suddenly heals itself, why would Shelly allow him to put himself and his family through that again?  Two separate health scares (one at Florida and one at OSU) and now she's gonna be all-in on him getting another one? 

If he wants to coach again, it will be Pop Warner with his grandkids.

No, I said exactly what I meant. All spring and summer, we've been told by every single sports outlet in America that Nebraska was going to beat Ohio State this year. There is no way these kids and coaches will go into that game unprepared or looking past the Huskers. This is not a trap game. This will be legalized murder. Bank on it.

Nah, never tried to swim it.  It was an old joke.  Another old joke is that Kentucky and Ohio went to war in the 1800s.  The troops on the Kentucky side would throw dynamite across the river.  The Ohio troops would light it and throw it back.

"For you non-geography enthusiasts, Southern Indiana is right over the KY border. It's a short swim across the Ohio River."

You ever seen the Ohio River?  That sucker's big, man.  I'd start to swim, get halfway across and get tired, and then swim back.

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.

Comment 11 Dec 2018

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.
