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.

Should be Bobby Bonilla's Agent Day for that contract. Eight percent interest? That is just nuts.

First Reds game I saw as a kid was Reds-Astros in 1977. I remember thinking what an awesome stadium that was just because I had not seen anything like it being I was only 4 1/2. My dad wasnt impressed. He had gone to 100+ games at Old Crosley Field. 

My favorite memory of Riverfront was going to a Reds-Astros game in 1987 and there was a rain delay and the San Diego Chicken ran the bases on top of the wet tarp. It remains the funniest thing I'd ever seen on a baseball field.

There is such a disparity in the recruiting between No. 1 and No. 10. Just look at us and TTUN lol. I cannot imagine a scenario where the No. 10+ ranked teams are going to be a threat to the Top 4-5, not when those top teams are at their late-season peak too. As much as I'd love to see a playoff quarterfinal of Boise State upsetting an OU with Statue of Liberty plays, I think over the long term a 10-16-team playoff would be unwatchable. So many blowouts. Eight teams is enough with first round games at home fields. Make the SEC play in the snow in Columbus or Madison.

I worried under Taver Johnson. He wrecked the DB room by himself. Thankfully Coach Day brought in Jeff Hafley then brought back Coombs. Not worried at all now.

And in the case of Carlton Davis wasnt he just holding his spot until he got the Auburn offer? He had no intention of ever coming to OSU. Woodbey was a flake and Battle was collateral damage from Urban stepping down/coaching transition. As for Phillips, not sure why anyone would want to go to Utah on purpose.

The penalty/yards per game average was actually a significant improvement from 2018. I think we were dead last or close to last. The sacks allowed proved to be the major headache for last year's team though. Everything else was minimized by how good we were at everything else.

So happy for you and your soon-to-be Mrs., Kevin. Congrats to you both!

So you have to reserve a spot to order a pizza? That pizza better taste like cocaine dripped in honey and chocolate and a $1 million bucks. Disney reopened its parks recently and you have to "reserve" a spot to enter the park. It kind of pissed me off but I get it, safety and all that. But damn, reserving a pizza order? Sounds like something Eric Cartman would do.

Fuller's robbed TD would be on here if the officials weren't SEC homers. Fuller's scoop and score won the game for us and gotten that damned Clemson albatross off us. But we're in the alternate reality :(

Comment 18 Jun 2020

Wisky has been recruiting like hell to get a respectable passing game but they are 1-2 seasons away from having that. Jack Coan isnt going to lead that offense. Wouldnt be surprised if the Mertz kid replaces Coan as their starting QB this season.

Minny wouldve played us in Indy if they had not let Iowa kick their ass. They were close. Question is can they improve upon that?

Harbaugh LOL!

Isn't Dave Biddle the stupid schmuck who was feeding us false info during Urban's meeting with the OSU brass? Why in the world would you listen to him now?

ESPN was unwatchable before the current state of affairs. Now it looks more like CNN.

I will also agree that MLB has done much more damage to itself than the other pro leagues. If I were a betting man I'd wager MLB does not survive the current state of affairs. People still remember the 1994 Strike that cost us a World Series. I don't really care about a bunch of millionaires squabbling but they gotta know the PR hit they are taking wont help them rebound.
