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.

This one is pretty big news for a lot of people. Anyone who is a sports fan really felt this. Kobe was loved by a lot of folks. I know it was pretty big news when Prince, David Bowie, and Michael Jackson all died. I remember watching TV the night Princess Diana died in 1997 and it being the most shocking thing I'd seen in terms of celebrity deaths up to that point. I was shocked about Heath Ledger myself.

I'm not near as big an NBA fan as I used to be but Kobe personified class and greatness. You didnt have to be a fan of his to appreciate him. This is just sad.

Edit: His daughter Gigi died with him. God

I always LOL at people who think running a major CFB program is easy because its easy to do in video games. You think Ryan Day, who just pulled in a Top 4 class on his own, is recruiting with the sales pitch "Come to OSU, Urban really is the coach. I'm just here not to fuck it up!" Give me a break.

Well, if our staffers are going to get poached we might as well poach them back in a few years to replace any of our assistants who may leave. So right when Hafley has BC turned a corner we grab some of these guys back. Problem solved.

And for the record, I am much happier having Coombs back. He actually wants to be in Columbus.

Hazelnuts are vasty underrated IMHO. So are Walnuts right off the tree. And I may get booed for this but I find Pistachios a tad bit overrated. You never know precisely what you will get with them.

Comment 24 Jan 2020

You're going to score Dennis a 2/10 for recruiting after only being the QB coach for a week and a half? You do know that QC coaches rarely go out recruiting. It was said that Dennis played a part in keeping our 2019 class together after Grinch got fired left for OU. Only after Grinch left was Dennis allowed to even recruit.

And why are you even grading Coombs? He's been gone two years.

Comment 24 Jan 2020

It doesn't take them that much time to write R&M but the animation has gotten much more complex. The dragon episode was by far the most elaborate I've seen of any of the episodes. I think the real problem is Roiland and Harmon are rumored to fight like an old married couple. Probably some BTS drama that causes the delays. CN is just like "here's your money, give us shows."

Comment 23 Jan 2020

 The OSU coaching staff was scavenged

Um, sorry to break this to you losers, but we replaced Hafley with Kerry Coombs and a truckload of Red Bull. Yurcich wasnt a loss at all. Day runs the offense.

1. December 10, 2007 - To witness the Led Zeppelin reunion show at London's O2 Arena as part of the Capitol Records 50-year anniversary. The show looked amazing on video as it was

2. August 15 or 16, 1969 - Woodstock (just to see the music acts)

3. July 21, 1861 - The Battle of Bull Run (First Manasass). Historically called "The Picnic Battle" people actually showed up in carriages and horses to watch the battle like it was a public event like a horse race or theatre performance. Even senators came to watch it. People were selling food like a sporting event. When the battle was over people were scattering driving their carriages over the dead bodies left behind. This one is a bit of a morbid curiosity of mine more than anything.

4. 5000 years ago in Egypt to see when how the pyramids were really built (My money is they secretly had alien help like in the movie/TV show StarGate

Tat-gate doesnt happen exactly the way it did Urban might have still become our coach but under completely different circumstances. Maybe he eventually does become our HC after JT. I had heard JT was nearing retirement before all that crap from 2011 and he might've just retired if we had won the national title in 2011 with TP/Boom/Posey all playing. It would have been JT's style to ride off into the sunset like that. Then who knows? Maybe Urban succeeds JT and we enter 2012 without a bowl ban and Urban and Braxton leads us to a national title repeat after we destroy Notre Dame.

Comment 22 Jan 2020

Someone on here said that Ty Hamilton is much more advanced in terms of technique than his brother was, i would not be surprised to see him play and contribute. All the youngsters will get to play in blowouts anyway. I think our depth at DT for 2020 is fine, it's 2021 where it will be the real question. If Vincent or Togiai blow up they all could leave with the seniors.
