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.

I totally understand why this is a valid topic to write about, but it’s not much fun to see this timeline of past suspensions. Let us hope the list ends with Young for quite some time. I also suppose it’s better that this is happening in Rutgers week versus Michigan week.

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. The past keeps me humble in the present. I remember tons of UM fans openly mocking OSU and saying the rivalry was over in the 90s. They’re pretty quiet now and I’ll never be like they were back then. I just enjoy the success of the present.

My nephew is in the Big Red Band and they rock.  Regarding the new addition, no Johnstown original calls it what it is actually named. It's been the New Addition forever even though it's probably 70-80 years old now. My great-grandfather Belt's farm was sold off to create most of the original plots.

I can think of one loss in my lifetime to pretty much most of the teams in the B1G that at the time caused pain. I’m willing to forget those losses to at least not root against them with the exception of UM. F those guys forever and may they lose every game.

Aside from her passion for her alma mater, She’s my cousin and close family. Deleting from my life is not something I’d ever entertain.

9 is my number 1. I remember that day vividly and my cousin who was at Northwestern calling me and gloating about the OSU loss. She went to the Rose Bowl. Now on facebook, every Saturday I get stupid ass updates like “Cats with a first down” & “Field goal Cats”. So, when we freaking destroy them, I’m going to enjoy it immensely.
