MEMBER SINCE   January 17, 2018

Born and raised in Lorain, Buckeye fan since I can first recall watching a game on TV and that was 1965. Favorite Buckeye moment - getting Woody Hayes' autograph as a kid. Suffering in the hell hole known as PSU country but love sticking it to the fans here. Have made attending the Spring Game a tradition with my two grown sons.

Cannot wait for the Spring Game to produce a bunch of new observations, data points and perceptions to carry us through the summer to play the speculation game (along with the gnashing of teeth game if neither of the two do particularly well in the spring). Even more fun will be had if the offenses look different depending on who is on the field like last spring with Haskins and Martell.

Exactly what I was thinking. Still should be their right but politicians as usual not thinking through the actual execution issues. And coming from California no surprise. They passed the California Consumer Privacy Act in 7 days because they did not want the original ballot measure to get voted on but still have not figured out the mechanics of making it happen and it's a mess.

Hey, outdid them on turnovers, 18-13. How in the world do you have a guard commit 7 turnovers and still be allowed to handle the ball that much?

I fear it was Holtmann complaining to the conference on how things were called against him and not the players on him many games ago.

Holtmann getting a lesson this year that you cannot complain to the conference about officiating unless your name is Izzo and a couple of other names in the past.

Thanks for the link.  That is so good and so true.  If there is a rivalry that matches up to the Game in terms of the hatred level I think it is Bama and Auburn but in that one both sides get it both in the fan base and the teams.  I think it is really revealing reading Mattison's comments that the coaching staff either just does not get or has deliberately chosen to not give it that focus which is why they have gotten their asses kicked for so many years.  Eventually I think it will cost them because there will be some important boosters who will say enough is enough.  Until then they will falsely and weakly try to position themselves as believing it is not important because they have a loftier ambition which is to be champions at life!
