Born in the year of Woody's first National Championship. Mom used to sing for me "Across the Field" as a lullaby. I've raved in Bucknut ecstasy and wallowed in abject misery as well. If that makes me a bipolar Ohio State Buckeye fan... then SO BE IT.

“I gotta be really careful here, because I don’t want to say that this is an accusation,” Esiason said Monday morning. “I don’t want to … I just was thinking the other day about what is going on with the SEC teams down south. And Clemson included, who’s obviously an ACC team. A lot of their players are coming down with COVID-19, oddly enough. So are they trying to herd immunity their teams?"

I had- in jest- suggested this very same scenario in another posting from a couple of weeks ago. If that is indeed the strategy, it's an incredibly risky one.

It’s an interesting read; please try to remember that Michigan writers are going to homer Michigan football with the same precision that we homer Ohio State football here, but with copious ennui because: Michigan.

I chortled when I saw that. Incisive wordsmithing, Ramzy.

The university’s response was a solid non-denial. Ferentz's contract with Iowa runs through 2026.

Be interesting to see an investigation of some other B1G school whose name begins and ends with a vowel. Does this also mean that Kirk won't be in the running once again for the Conference's COY?

And KBonay will love the posting pic. Surf's Up!

I would say DUI is a little more dangerous than some loser tweeting racist crap, so why not boycott until that player is kicked off the team?

Given that view, the Buckeyes should've parted ways with JT Barrett in 2015. /

A gentle reminder to everyone on this thread to please keep the commentary from going off the rails. Thanks.

Do Any of You Feel Stupid for Caring So Much About Ball Games

Without sports, without play, without recreation (to make new again), without entertainment, without diversion, we suffer individually and collectively.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

I don't feel stupid at all. If anything, I feel hollow and unsatisfied without those ball games.

Go Bucks. On a wing and a prayer.

That had to have been an agonizing string of defeats for Buckeye fans in the House That Harley Built. But the "Stadium Jinx" wasn't just confined to the venerable Horseshoe:

September 20, 2009: The Cowboys played their first NFL regular season game in the new (AT&T) stadium, with former President and Texas resident George W. Bush handling the opening coin toss. The Cowboys lost to their long-time NFC East division rivals, the New York Giants, 33–31 with Eli Manning leading them on a last second field goal by Lawrence Tynes. It was televised on NBC. This game attracted a record-breaking crowd of 105,121. After the game, Manning signed the wall of the visitor's locker room with the message, "First win in the New Stadium."

Taking a brown belt 3rd place Heavyweight Division (back then, it was anybody over 180 lbs., LOL) in the 1975 Foreigners Tae Kwon-Do Tournament at Kukkiwon Arena in Seoul, ROK. I was up for the championship fight but had to bow out due to a foot injury in the previous bouts.

The guys I fought against were some tough SOBs. Owe everything to my savvy instructor, Mr Han. That tournament helped earn me my 1st degree Black Belt.

What's the latest revision (if any) to TOSU's Athletic Department protocols for COVID-19? And Dan, do you think the CFB season will go forward with the recent rash of teams testing positive for the bug?
