Lifelong Ohio State fan. I grew up in southern Ohio and have lived all over the state including Chillicothe and Cleveland. I now live in Florida but O-H-I-O is home. I was raised on my grandfather's Scioto County farm where I learned two important life lessons: 1, Always treat people how you'd like to be treated; 2, Three yards and a cloud of dust! One of my earliest childhood memories is wearing my scarlet and gray footie pajamas when I was 5 while watching OSU game replays on the local WOSU channel with my dad. I even remember Paul Warfield announcing. I've been known to scream at the TV when Ohio State plays. I hate TTUN. I hate them more than Khan hated Captain Kirk. That Team Up North sucks. The SEC sucks. Mark May sucks. Go Bucks!

  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best personal sports moment was my 1 tackle in high school in the 1989 OHSAA Division IV state championship game at Ohio Stadium on the old field turf. To play an actual game on the same turf Woody walked on will always be the greatest sports moment of my life. That and OSU's 2002 national championship game win over Miami. I cried tears of utter joy after that win.

Reid's case wasnt collusion. He was suspended for failing a drug test and piggybacked onto Kapernick's thing because he felt the NFL owners were targeting him for repeated drug tests when he came back.

When the AAFL-Kaepernick thing posted my first thought that there was a settlement coming. Im guessing Kap had some provable proof the NFL Owners were colluding against him hence the decision to settle. There was something written earlier about Kap's attorney deposing Goodell's text messages and phone records. Bet they found something good. Not that I care, Kap will never play again because nobody wants the PR headache when he kneels again. Fans dont want to see that stuff. Only reason NFL owners did anything was because they saw it killing their ratings.

Meh, having Gene on the CFP committee would never had helped us regardless if we had beaten Iowa or Purdue. He would've had to recuse himself anyway when discussing OSU. Him being on that committee was purely a career move for him to help the sport and an optical move for TOSU. It was never going to help us.

I suspect the best thing that will back up the OP's argument is the fact Ryan Day, other than being an innovative offensive mind and securing the transfer of Justin Fields, is the fact he will have two full seasons full of Urban Meyer recruits. The number of Urban recruits on OSU's roster shrinks significantly after 2020 so any success or failures he has from 2021-on will be all his. I think Day will recruit well on his own but having our Top 3 2017 and 2018 classes as the main part of his first two seasons as OSU head coach will be a very nice advantage.

I lost a female friend in 2016 to that awful disease. When she found out it was terminal she didnt tell her friends and family until the very end when she was bedridden, mostly to spare us all the same kind of grief. I remember seeing her at a party 2 months before she passed away drinking beer and smiling and cracking jokes. Later found out she knew she was dying at that time. I guess its easier for people to deal with a sudden death over a death that is strewn out over weeks and months and she loved everyone so much she didnt want to do that to everyone. Still breaks my heart regardless but you can see the logic.

This is pure page clickbait bullshit. ESPN would rank us No. 25 but they dont want to see their headquarters burned to the ground, they just want to piss us all off so we'll visit their stupid pages. Dont feed the trolls.

When I saw the score at halftime I was like "Yeah we're in trouble." Not being pessimistic. Just a gut feeling I had. The Buckeyes are going to have to steal 2 or 3 down the stretch to get into the NCAA. Right now i have a hard time seeing them do it.

I'm from Southern Ohio. The weather will be weird for you. One day it may be snowing. The next 75 and sunny. The following day freezing rain. The day after that thunderstorms. Pack accordingly.

As been mentioned before, I have a friend who works at COSI, which is great for families, and the new Legoland in Columbus is indoors (because of the weather I just spoke about). It's brand new so it will be packed.
