Class of '86. Met Woody on campus and for 2 minutes he focused 100% on my academic experience in a sincere and friendly manner. When he dotted the "i" for Script Ohio I cried like a baby. Live in the Dallas area and my wife is amazed at all of the fans and alumni present wherever we go.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2004 Alamo Bowl in San Antonio with my father. My dad coached high school football and was my position coach. We watched Ted Ginn destroy Oklahoma State. Dad said that the pep rally before the game was as much fun as the game itself.
  • NFL TEAM: Dallas Cowboys
  • NHL TEAM: Dallas Stars

Depending on 18-22 year old men is risky.  That’s why being a fan is fun. It’s more fun to be a Buckeye fan than just about anywhere else. This may be a very special year or at worst a very enviable 3 loss team.

Great list but I must give a shout out to KD!  Kelton Dansler was a great player who came back to campus to get his degree.  He was great just hanging out in the old house on Chittenden.  He was part of the "Official Party House of the 1984 Olympics" that was covered on Channel 6 by a young Todd Blackledge.  I wish I had a copy of the VHS video.  They did a tape segment for the 6pm news and a live segment in the hot tub a 11pm.  It was in the front yard with no fence, 10 kegs and no fights or police.  It was a different time.

I overlooked the boat rowers who will finish in the bottom 3 but their coach will capture plenty of headlines.  They do not have the talent or discipline to finish in the top three.  Your mileage may vary.

Does the 5* transfer QB transform the NW offense?   The Purple usually have a good defense but historically do not score much.  I believe some improvement will be made but not enough to repeat as West division champions.  Forget about Illinois because that defense will not improve enough this year, but they are starting to attract a little talent.  Purdue overachieved against the Buckeyes but does not have enough to finish on top.  Nebraska will move up but the defense is a year or two away.  It comes down to Wisconsin and Iowa who always have a disciplined team which capitalizes on mistakes and hangs onto the ball a long, long time.  I will flip a coin and call Wisconsin my hunch to continue the tradition to finish on top of the West and fall in the B1G championship.

As a longtime Cowboys fan I have to agree.  Zeke will find a way to be ineligible/unavailable every year.  It is a darn shame.  Michael Thomas has this figured out and he will give everything he has to get as much on the stat sheet as possible and help the team win in the process.

I use the Char Griller gas and charcoal combo with the little 10k btu side burner for my charcoal chimney starter.  Added a little $70 portable charcoal grill that bolts on to the charcoal side of the combo to function as the stick burner.  $400 all in for gas, charcoal and smoke.  It is not hermetically sealed but very functional.  It stays outside with a $40 cover that lasts a couple of years and I get 10 years out of the rig.  Versatile, simple, convenient and low cost of ownership.

When AJ was trying out for the Carolina Panthers punter role he was the first to intentionally kick the ball into the $300 million 60 yard long Jumbotron at Jerry World. Jerry came down in person to get him to stop.

Broadnax had legs like tree trunks.  He had to wear jeans several sizes too big and take them in at the waist such that his back pockets were at a 45 degree angle.  Shared a wrestling officiating PE class with him.  Nice guy who was silently intimidating without any effort.

That 5 TD prediction is highly improbable- agreed. I would think that the TE production might get be the same as last year (higher percentage of The 3600 yds projected relative to last years 5000 yards passing) as a safety valve for a mobile QB.

I sat next to the uncle of the Green twins at the local burger bar showing vintage cars.  If they are half as good a man as their uncle they will represent the university well.  Yes, I was wearing my Ohio State 2014 National Champions shirt and he was very proud of those young men.
