I've lived in Ohio my whole life and in the Columbus area since I was seven. I've been a Buckeye since my birth in 1980. I attended my first game in the shoe when I was seven. Since I was seven and the 1988 football season, I've only missed nine Ohio State home games. I attended every game of the 2002 national championship season except at Northwestern.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Going to the national championship game vs. Miami on January 3, 2003 and watching the Buckeyes win it all! Going to Holy Buckeye, rushing the field for TTUN game in 2006 for #1 vs. #2 and for Tressel's last game vs. TTUN in 2012 (and rushing it in 1998 and 2002), and doing O-H-I-O around the Big Outhouse in 2009. Also, going to the 2012 Buckeyes game vs. Purdue and not leaving early (never do!), seeing the Buckeyes crush Notre Dame in the Shoe in 1995, and seeing Eddie rush for 314 vs Illinois in the Shoe in 1995. Finally, attending the Ohio State vs. TTUN game where Tressel gave his famous speech about beating them after he was hired.

I have been off Eleven Warriors for months now (I was coming on every day and just needed a break I guess). But, I logged back in solely because of this news. This is the next best thing to winning the national championship! See ya troll, 72-0.

Mike Hart had one with Ohio Stadium on it, but he just lost it for the fourth time.

Sorry, I didn't want to let you have all the fun.

Edit: Technically this should read: Mike Hart has two maps but he has lost each of them twice. One has Ohio Stadium on it, and the other has the Big House.

I mean I love the Buckeyes and all, but I don't really want to see a view of Evan Spencer's crack on anyone. Ohhh.......okay, carry on.

It certainly isn't bragging. Stravinsky is delusional. This guy is just excited about something great that happened in his life and he wanted to share it on a perfectly acceptable platform.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

Huh? Where are you getting that I said Drayton should have told Weber anything? The point was I don't know what he should or shouldn't have told him and neither do you, because Drayton never spoke a word of the entire thing and none of us know exactly how it went down. So, how is that missing the point? The entire reason we had a million threads on this (including this one) is because nobody ever made a clear statement on the matter.

Comment 10 Feb 2015

Yeah, it is the point. You can't know whether Drayton should have done something different or not without all the info. We never got a statement from Drayton or any firm facts about what/when he knew about the interest from the Bears. That is the entire reason why he still has the question of ethics that everyone claimed was somehow over with Weber's tweet. Bottom line is Drayton needs to have given a statement answering point blank why he feels he didn't deceive Mike Weber or admit that he did.

Edit: I do agree with you when you say nothing has changed. You feel the OP shouldn't be talking about it because nothing has changed, but he is talking about because something SHOULD have changed (Drayton or Meyer giving clear answers they never gave).

Your question was answered in the many threads on the subject.

You then go on to say we know absolutely nothing. How was his question answered if nobody has explained or said anything regarding when he knew? That was kind of the point.

We're the best until ESPN releases their preseason poll with Ohio State and TCU being the only non-SEC top ten teams. I'm not sure if I should use sarcasm font or not for this, so I will go without.

On the bright side, at least they are all the proper age (I think). Haven't there been issues for years about other countries hiding the ages of their players and playing players that were too old?

Comment 10 Feb 2015

Yes, this is the millionth Weber thread. BUT, in the OP's defense, it is true that none of this actually got answered. Everyone said it was over because of Weber's tweet about Alford and because they were sick of hearing about it and wanted it to be. Well, that ended where Weber's head was at now and where he was going to school, but it didn't ever answer when Drayton knew because Drayton never gave a statement and Meyer's statement seemed to indicate that they knew by how he was seemingly avoiding saying more than he had to. It would be nice to know for sure, but it doesn't appear we are going to so the next best thing is to end these threads.

Lol. Man, my typos have been multiplying lately. I must be lacking sleep. Usually, I go back and fix them but I will leave that one or your comment won't apply.
