Longtime Buckeye fan. Have memories as far back as 1964. Was in the stands when Archie ran wild against North Carolina and nobody knew who he was. Am a husband, father, grandfather and crazy fan of the greatest college football program in the history of college football.

Bite your tongue! Nebraska will be no pushover this year. They weren’t last year in Columbus. Neither will Wisconsin, neither will Northwestern on a Friday night in Evanston, neither will Spartans. Buckeye schedule is plenty tough. We have a chance to run the table but not because it’s “cake.”

Not going there, but think he's next. And if so, so too are Browns. Get ready for a ten year run. Hard to believe I'm saying that but I'm saying it.

Golfer hits an errant shot. Ball hits and breaks a giant and not inexpensive picture window on home that lines the fairway. Who is the responsible party?

Personally don't think UM will ever fire him. He's a favorite son and I just don't think the University would go there. I can imagine Jim walking away independently if it becomes apparent that Day has his number. He's not going to want to stick around for an annual ass-kicking by the Buckeyes. But no, I don't think UM would ever flat fire him.

Consider Wooster and Orrville. Both are thriving small towns not far from the things to do in Cleveland, which gets better every day. Also Medina, which is in the same general area.

Head Ball Coach at The Ohio State University is not a stepping stone. It's a destination. Day will not be going anywhere for many years, as long as he beats Michigan.

Archie and Pete was a real life combo that was, in fact, the dream combo. Thunder and lightning.

The Radon guys were at the house yesterday. It was a solid two-man crew. Enjoyed talking to them and they did a great job. May as well give them a plug, SWAT Environmental. Cost was $845 which was the lowest of three bids we got. The other bids were $950 and $915. 

The job took about 2.5 hours. They found the perfect place to put the pipe; on side of house tucked away in a corner with some of the other utilities. Best part is that in that location, it was just a one floor run of pipe to the roof line.

I feel like we could have stayed in the home another 30 years and never be impacted by radon in that it's an unfinished basement in which we spend close to zero time. Strangely, however, I feel good about having it done. Now on to the smoke and CO detectors!

Admire your strength, Calpop, and happy you’re doing well but this seems a stretch of an analogy.

Hondo checking in. John Havlicek, the inspiration for my screen name, was a hero of mine as a kid. I was born in '57 and have only second hand memories of his time at OSU. But I have vivid memories of his NBA career and time with the Celtics. The guy was a perpetual motion machine on the court, known for his non-stop, off the ball movement that often resulted in him sinking a shot or getting a back door coming off a screen. What a career. And what a well spoken class act. Thanks for the memories, Hondo. May you rest in peace.

Depleted and used. OSU stuck with the young man when he was injured and down. He was given loyalty, scholarship, exposure, rehab and training. I can't think of a thing he gave back.

Agree. Best of luck my ass. If you ain't with us, you're against us. I don't wish him ill, but neither do I wish him well. Don't know him, don't care. Unless one knows the kid, it's 100% disingenuous to wish him well in this kind of situation. It's a total throwaway line that means nothing.
