Stronzo The Great


Greensboro, NC (via Bellefontaine )

MEMBER SINCE   April 17, 2015

I am the 6th of 7 children, all born in Western Pennsylvania, except me. I was born in Bellefontaine. We moved back to Pa. 2 years later, the only Ohio thing I latched onto was the Buckeyes.

I began watching in 1968, and learned to hate USC and TTUN. I also loved Penn State because it's what you did in W. Pa. Until they joined the Big 10. I still watch them and revere JoePa. Sorry. Woody too fell on hard times.

I was born in Bellefontaine, but we moved back to PA. when I was 2 1/2. We lived in Ohio only 7 years. I watched Penn State every week (they were never supposed to be in the same conference!) So, in '68, at the age of 11, I asked my Dad if there was an "Ohio" State. He said, "Yeah, it's a small school.". I saw Archie and was hooked, though I was still a PSU fan, too. Man, was I conflicted! I had lived in Phoenix and cheered for the Sun Devils over the Bucks, because I have never seen the Bucks live but had ASU season tickets. I finally got my shit together after the Lions joined the Big 10 and Jerry Sandusky sealed it. I apologize for ever wavering.

I love the black or pewter helmet game, and the fans all wearing red as opposed those white outs. We need some new fan inclusive tradition. Think Terrible Towel, 12th Man, flash cards spelling Go, Bucks! And maybe we can put a 9 volt charge in the seats so fans jump at the right times!

These are the things I perceived as Coach Meyer trends. He didn't play Zeke in the Championship game the year after our big win and it cost us a title. He came back after his suspension and the success was harder to find than it had been with Day. And the yesterday, he didn't get Mike the yards in the first half and then rarely played him all second half. And it seems to me his coaching is what let Washington come back. I am thankful for him, but I am anxious to see Ryan Day take over. I just hope we have a good QB. I don't really see Martell doing what Dwayne did. I don't like running QBs.

Those are lost yardage. And obviously, statistically and production-wise, he's been great. But, the lost yardage is the QB runs, Q draw, et cetera. The read plays. So, you have to pick up that yardage somewhere else," Meyer scares me. I'm so afraid he'll alter the success with the running QB crap he loves so much. He did it with Tebow, Braxton, JT. It worked then but I am afraid he'll mess up this great thing we have. Who cares about "missed yardage"?

I'm one who lives inside my fears. I'm a little worried about Urbs coming back. I really loved the job Day did and am afraid The Coach will much it up. He loves a 2 QB platoon system. Think Tebow. He also held Zeke back saying he was injured and never left his script. Please don't screw it up. As for ifs and buts, if we hadn't dropped passes... or if TCUs trick return wasn't a forward pass...or if the ACC refs called all of the pass interferences on both teams, or the targeting...and if we hadn't missed the FG...or the holding call that they didn't call on the Bosa injury...it would have been a different score and ballgame.

If they think the refs cost them the game, my hatred for the same refs must be warranted. The last TD TTUN scored was because the refs missed the punch to Baker's head. That's why he fell and missed the tackle. There was a lot of holding. It was tough to watch.
