Thanks, been kind of an occasional lurker but also busy with real life. Always good to check in here.
I-70 isn't even close to the most boring interstate in the country. Some of those interstates out west are far worse. I spent a week on I-40 one day.
When I moved to Amarillo, TX (I don't recommend this), I started to think I was in Purgatory on the drive out, and that I was destined to continue driving west with no exits in sight until I had paid for each and every one of my sins in this life. I thought those billboards for the Big Texan were taunting me every half hour or so.
If you ever feel like time is moving too quickly, just get in the car and head west.
29 Lead seems like a good idea for the next 11W t-shirt, IMO.
Awwww, I miss you guys too! I love what Kevin has brought to the Debriefing, though.
This is great. Was a blast to be a part of such a talented and hard-working staff. Big thanks to Vico for giving me my start in Ohio State blogging, to Grand Maester Jason and the Small Council for bringing me aboard here, and to Johnny for being a great Dubcast partner during my time here.
11W gave me the opportunity to talk to amazing people like Chris Spielman, Doug Donley, Dennis Hopson, Scottie Graham, Joe Germaine and others, and to bring their words to you, the readers. Doing the Debriefing was a blast, and it forced me to weigh the proper amount of humor with the right amount of respect when selecting each week's "Jim Tressel's Least Favorite Moment." The FlashBuck series gave me a chance to spotlight some of my favorite Buckeyes, and the Q&A series was a lot of fun, even if I never did land the big fish I tried so hard for so long to reel in - Antoine Winfield (sorry, Jason!).
Here's to the next 10 years!
Consider this an upvote. You have my number. Feel free to call me and babble about Ohio State for an hour every week. [/Bosa shrug]
Math is hard.
Enjoyed being your podcast partner, Johnny! You will continue to do amazing things and get incredible guests. Really proud of the work we did together here. And to all the listeners, thanks for lending us your ears and for all the great Ask Us Anything questions over the years.
Even if it was frustrating for a while, I never felt like Ohio State wouldn't win that game. And the Buckeyes ended up winning comfortably, 42-27. It was good preparation for...oh, nearly every 2015 game.
I let the embedded tweet do the heavy lifting. Seemed weird to write it and also have it in the tweet.
Hmmm...can't tell if trolling or serious.
Oden went off for 25 points, 12 boards and four blocks, and got three Gators into foul trouble. But it wasn’t enough. Conley added 20 points and six dimes in the 84-75 OSU loss. Al Horford’s 18 points and 12 boards led a balanced Gator team that saw four players reach double figures. The big difference was poor distance shooting for the Buckeyes, who went just 4/23 from the arc, compared to Florida’s 10/18. Ohio State outscored the Gators in the paint by an incredible 48-22.
That's why I wrote this line:
