My first day as an OSU freshman, my college roommate introduced my country ass to both bourbon and Springsteen. That was a night.

You may think there's little to hate, but I was there in 2004, and these people are the worst winners in the world. They didn't know how to handle it. 

I think how fans handle winning shows you more about their character than how they handle losing. Folks in Iowa last year were ecstatic and even friendly. Northwestern fans were just ***holes.

Yeah, I was there too. Most unpleasant Big Ten road experience I ever had was dealing with those fans when they won. People that bad at winning should not be allowed to do it.

It's true good players aren't always good coaches. The players who blow past everyone else with raw talent rarely do. But players who don't have that kind of talent, who succeed because they learn every smallest detail about the position that can give them an edge, and then work relentlessly to develop those skills, those players sometimes wind up the best coaches around.

Hartline was reasonably talented as a receiver, but he made his living off of developed skills and hard work. If he can teach it, he'll be a good one, and it sounds like he knows how to teach it.

God, that first semester can be such a shock. Korbyn, a lot of us small-town kids have been where you are. 30-some years ago I was the class brain in a small school in western Ohio, and the first semester had me wondering if I could hack it. It's a huge change from where you came from.

But I think you'll find it just keeps getting better from here. Ohio State's size can be tough and impersonal at first, but everything you need is here, once you figure out how to find it.

Kudos to Coach Meyer for helping her find her balance. But I always kind of figured that's one reason someone like him becomes a coach in the first place. Good job.

It's because Bruce used him as a messenger guard his junior year. All that talent, and he only played half the offensive downs.

That was kind of the final straw for me with Bruce, on top of losing three games every year to nobodies. Watching Lachey run to the sideline after pulling and just killing a DE or LB was painful. That year I joined the Fire Earle chorus.

Lil' Red is way more disturbing than #5.

Honestly, these are the second-friendliest fans I've encountered in the Big Ten, after Iowa's.
