It's pretty much all day Saturdays. In very rare occasions, if something important would come up, I would leave after the Buckeye game. I must say there are a few more on here that only watch Buckeye games then I thought there would have been. Don't know how anyone can get a real feel for how good or bad a team may be without watching them.
Must say, I haven't scrubbed a floor with a toothbrush for a while. They used to make us do that in the army...don't think I carried that over into civilian life.
As I get older it's not quite as important as it used to be but I don't think I'll ever be as low as 4. I used to get so nervous I could hardly eat before a game and if they lost it would ruin my whole week. Like some have said, I get over a loss a little quicker now and can hold down solid food during game day but it is still a very important part of my life. I'm now pushing 70 and would still not consider missing a game. Maybe I used to be like 9.5 and now I'm an 8, meaning if I thought I may be having a heart attack I might let them take me to the hospital before the game ends.
I know what movie this is from but when I saw the hat I had a flashback to when I was in basic in the Army. A trainee threw a butt on the ground. They saw him and made him dig a six-foot hole and bury it. Once he got that done they said they changed their mind and to dig it back up. Once that was done, and the hole filled back in, they told him "now dispose of it properly". My guess is he never threw another on the ground.
That's something that I almost never have done. In 88 at the Pitt game, we left in the 4th qt. The game was out of hand and the Pitt fans were intolerable. I was also with a group of friends and I didn't drive and had no choice.
Can't believe that no one picked Desdumb Howard. Ohio kid that went to the scUMERS and struck that damn pose. It truly did make me sick every time I saw it.
Thanks to everyone that committed. I posted this to see if there were people thinking along the same lines as I was. When I posted this (at that time) there were not many comments about the subject. I apologize to the couple that it seemed to upset that I posted something that had been discussed previously.
Saw the article, did not see a forum discussion on it.
I logged in to UV this. We may not like it but Dabo is king right now and it's not going to be easy to knock him off his throne. Nobody recruits better than Clemson and the gap is getting wider every year. He just went into Florida at one of the (pipeline schools for the Gators) and stole a top rated RB after three of his teammates had already committed to the Gators. It's nuts the amount of talent that they are able to stockpile. This is a huge year for the Buckeyes IMO. Day has to show that he can win and recruit. On paper, it sure looks like he has the players to do it but it is yet to be proven. ..Go Bucks
Yep, there really isn't a close second for me. That one stayed with me for a long time...just another reason to hate Saban
Purdue has had more success than OSU?
You are so correct. Cooper told the truth and people didn't want to hear it. The team was weak and slow, it had fallen to the lowest point in all the years I watched them. He got off on the wrong foot by saying things like that...he talked funny, was from the south, instantly people didn't like him. In actuality, it was amazing the job he did recruiting considering the amount of support he received from the media and fans. Of course, losing to our biggest rival is what done him in.
I would put him right up there with Urban Meyer when it came to recruiting. Earl Bruce was by far the worst and like another poster said he was a true Buckeye but totally out of his league at OSU.
Why do I feel like I read this thread about fifty times? As soon as I saw Joe Burrow's name I knew what it would be. I liked/like Joe and hope he does well at LSU. I think the coaches made the right decision and so did Joe. Playing behind that awful line that LSU had and playing in the SEC, I think he did really well. I have no idea why some feel the need to run a kid down that was from Ohio, graduated from OSU, wanted to be the starting QB? Oh, he wasn't very good...Clemson and Bama didn't recruit him. He still has the all-time record for TD's in a high school championship game. Yeah. I know it was just high school...spring game...garbage time...can't be any good...SMH
The thing I found most concerning about Fields is his release. Seems really low to me...he got a few batted down in the spring game and it could be a problem moving forward if not corrected. Some of those tipped balls are bound to be intercepted. True it was just a spring game but mechanics are mechanics.
On the positive side, he should really help the redzone offense having the zone-read back.
Notre Dame would be huge! It was huge the last time they played and would be again. I also would love to see LSU again.
There is a fine and each is required to do so many hours of community service as well. What did you expect? Did you really think any of those men were going to prison for going to a massage parlor? The only people that really should be facing jail time are the ones that were involved in human trafficking.
Judging from what he received it doesn't appear that he received any special treatment at all...yet. I'm not saying that money can't get you out of a lot of trouble...it can, but I don't see it here.
I can certainly see where some of these would get you in hot water. I know that we are not supposed to argue with posters opinions but some of these have me quivering.
My Unpopular opinions...
I like John Cooper! He took over when the program was at its lowest point in my life and turned it around to be relevant again. He had a lousy record against our biggest rival, and I totally get why they let him go, but otherwise did a remarkable job recruiting against some tough odds.
I think Herbie is a fair commentator and a true Buckeye. He made one statement years ago that I wished he wouldn't have but for the most part, is just trying to do a good job and not be a homer.
I don't believe that there is such a thing as a meaningless bowl game. I don't care if they are a 6 and 6 team any game that OSU plays has meaning.
Which one of your opinions is unpopular?
