Just got a ticket to the game saturday.  A friend of mine called me out of the blue and asked if I wanted to go.  I of course said yes.   Any advice for my first visit to the toilet bowl?

Hey Jim Delaney,  I have an idea.  Instead of trying to make the whole New York thing happen, do this instead.  Rotate the tourney through these locations  

Chicago, Indy, Detroit, Cleveland, Milwaukee.  

These are all NBA markets that have strong ties to the Big Ten.  I know these are not sexy but this is better for the fans and the "brand".

All of this Urban Meyer suspension talk, makes me miss the days of  debating Cardale vs JT for the starting job.  

I am so done with all of it.  OSU looks bad.  Meyer Looks bad.  Zach Smith is still a piece of work.  Zach should have been fired a long time ago for on field performance.  Meyer is now on a short leash.   He can't let any more of this crap happen.  

Let's move on and start thinking about beavers...

The standard you walk past is the standard you accept....

I just want to go one week without hearing that the University that I love looks the other way on garbage humans doing garbage things.   Two weeks ago it was the wrestling doctor, last week it was the diving coach, and now it is the football coach that beats his wife.  I hope Urban did the right thing but if he knew and did nothing he needs to go.  If he told Gene and let the university handle it then Urban did what he needed too.   He just lied last week at B1G media days which is still bad but not firable. I just want the facts.

If 11W knew then Bucknuts knew, Land of 10 (RIP) knew, The Athletic knew, knew, the Dispatch knew, and every other legitmate OSU site knew.   I would take it easy on 11W.  They were not the only one who made the decision to not run a story with out all the facts.    

That being said, Brett McMurphy have had an axe to grind with Urban and Ohio St for years.  I had to quite following him on twitter because I was done with his trolling.

There is WAAAAAY to much Shelby County in this Skull session.  I work in Sidney and I can't wait to get out of it as fast possible.  I am sure that is Bowsher's motivation too.    Shelby County is funny though all the small little towns have all the money and are like their own fiefdoms.   Fort Loramie, Anna, Minster, and New Bremen (even though it is in augalize) all think they are so great while I just see some podunk little town.  Oktoberfest is legit though.

Pass defense sucks but I am more willing to give it a pass since we had lost so much in the secondary.  They were thrown into a tough situation with two good passing offenses.   The coaches did not do enough to protect them.   The offense on the hand is not going to get the same pass.  I am sick of seeing the RBs disappear in the second half of games.  Let Wilson do his thing Urban.
