I'm a 1996 graduate of The Ohio State University. I am also a 4th generation alumnus and hope my kids carry on the tradition someday. I was in the North stands when Eddie George fumbled twice on the 1 yard line against Illinois and was a senior when he had redemption with his Heisman year.

The funny thing is that this comment could apply to a couple of their picks.

I hope it's Kyle Kalis because he's been irrelevant ever since his blood on the field comment. But then again it would be more fitting if he doesn't get drafted at all.

That's awesome! Those other folks who came prepared to race should be embarrassed. This reminds me of a time when I was a kid and the dads on our baseball team raced after a game about 40 to 50 yards. My farmer father, all 315 lbs of him wearing his jeans, work boots, white tee shirt and Pioneer hat beat everyone after coming to my game straight from the field. I thought he was going to have a heart attack afterwards though.

For Christs sake will you cover yourself? That line and scene cracked me up as a kid.

As the father of twin 12 year old girls, I'm going to take this advice to heart. Very well said!

Cincy, my first cousin from Moline had a chance to come to OSU on a full ride and be essentially debt free when she graduated. She took a partial scholarship to NU instead and graduated in 4 years but still over $200,000 in debt. I never understood why she did it other than NU was a better name. Her parents and both sets of grandparents graduated from OSU. Her major wasn't anything special either. Still blows my mind 20 years later.

If he stays, I hope next season is as successful and injury free as this past one. He deserves to get paid and would make a lot going in now. If he stays, I hope he gets an insurance policy for protection.
