Born and raised in Ohio, but my mother re-married to an Ohio State alumnus when I was 4. Ohio State Football was the first thing that we bonded over and that remains to this day. 
 

I had every intention of attending Ohio State out of high school (still have my acceptance letter to this day), but made the decision to attend Kent State instead. Don’t regret my decision in the slightest as Kent was truly the best fit for me... and it didn’t take me long to find fellow die-hard Ohio State fans on campus!

If he loves Zeke, I would highly recommend the 2015 at Indiana game. Not the greatest in terms of how close it was but Zeke going for 274 and 3 TDs should be something that he enjoys. I couldn't find the full game but here is the link for the shortened version!

No need or request to put it on the Big Board now... but keep an eye on Jordan James (RB out of Tennessee). In Letterman Row's video yesterday with Andre Turrentine, he mentioned James as the next Tennessee kid the Buckeyes could be in on. Obviously, just because a commit says "Check this guy out" doesn't mean they will, but an interesting note to keep in the back of your mind when we get further into the 2022 class.

I apologize if this has been reference earlier but another important aspect to consider is the refresh rate of the TV, especially with sports. I always recommend a refresh rate of 240 Hz. If you are going 65" or over, you will need to make sure that you have 120 Hz at the very minimum but definitely aim for 240 Hz. At home we have a 72" with a 240 Hz and we love it for watching the Buckeyes!

Comment 29 Jan 2020

I was looking for this. There is plenty of football moments I would love to change but this was the best team I have ever watched the Buckeyes put on the court. To the credit of my other fellow posters, I would also change the piss poor 4-23 from 3 the Buckeyes put up in the National Championship game against Florida. If not for that, we would have run them out of the building. 

Even if you go by their season average (36.1%) that would roughly be 4 more threes. That gives the Buckeyes a 3 point win. That team was clicking on all cylinders and then got to caught up in who was leaving for the pros after the season was done.

It's truly is amazing how quickly they turn the corner after an ass whooping and go right back to their "September Heisman, August National Champions" mode. Listening to these paint lickers up in Detroit and their podcasts... they are already convincing themselves that Joe Milton is a transcendent talent that will take them to the promise land... just like Shea Patterson... 

Honestly, I don't know how they have the mental and emotional fortitude to do this every season, it has to be exhausting. 

Comment 04 Dec 2019

So as I've mentioned on multiple posts before, I work in Detroit so i'm surrounded by these paint lickers all day, five days a week. I shit you not, on Monday I had a coworker come up to me and tell me that the Buckeyes were far and away the better team... immediately followed by how we got all the lucky bounces and that "Next year the streak ends"... 

You can't make this shit up, their brains can't begin to fathom the dominance no matter how much evidence you provide. 

Comment 15 Nov 2019

So either I get $5 million and make this whole "adulting" thing a lot easier... or just avoid being an adult for all of eternity? My name would be on the signature line before the print was dry on the contract

Always have a Captain and Coke as my go to... in blowout victories I enjoy crown vanilla and root beer, which I discovered on Put-In-Bay as being named a "Frosty Float".

Fuck you Riley your Mum loves butt-play like I love Haagen Dazs let’s get some fuckin ice cream!

Comment 15 Aug 2019

I swore up and down before the 2014 and 2015 seasons that Jeff Greene was going to be a crucial part to the offense and be a huge red zone threat for us... so I double tapped myself on that venture. 

Comment 06 Aug 2019

After all, here's what an additional loss per season would've done to Meyer's tenure at Ohio State, if each season's key nail-biter had gone the other way:

I read as far as this line and then closed the tab out. "Let's pretend history didn't happen the way it happened" is an enjoyable game we like to play while drinking beer with our buddies and for journalists during the off-season. If you are using it as a way to support your thesis statement... yikes. 

As the saying goes "If my aunt had balls, she would be my uncle, but she doesn't so she's not". 

Comment 02 Aug 2019

First game was September 16th, 2006 against Cincinnati. The Buckeyes were the number one team in the country, coming off a huge win over number two Texas in Austin the week prior. The game got out of hand fairly quickly as the Bucks cruised to a 37-7 win. 

I remember my step-dad (who is an Ohio State alumnus) showing me around campus before the game, and then showing me where additions were made to the stadium. At 13 years old I was in complete awe and loved everything about my first experience. It only served to strengthen and fuel my early fandom for Ohio State! 

Comment 25 Jul 2019

That's what is amazing to me, they watched the game unfold and still tried to turn around and say "Well we still scored 39 points". If you go back and really watch that game again, take away the inept officiating (in their favor I might add), our muffed kickoff return, and have the offense keep their foot on the gas pedal... that game easily ends 70-13. 

As Mike Valenti put it: "That was a beat down of Biblical proportions". 

I work in Detroit and the attitude is still the same. They treat the last twenty years like it is a minor inconvenience, an unfortunate outlier in this rivalry rather than the new norm. That attitude permeates through this entire state and it's honestly hilarious to watch them continuously refer back to the "tHe wINniNgEsT pROgrAm oF aLl tIMe" and their lead in the overall series... with the rationalization that you would have to be 112 years old to see ScUM have a winning record against the Buckeyes be damned. 

It was a quiet Monday after the game last year, I look forward to that for 2019. 

Comment 18 Jul 2019

Find yourself the next Boyd/Watson/Lawerence succession at QB, a stable of five 1st-Rd. DL and maintain the best assistant coaching staff in all of CFB by a wide margin; then we can talk.

And PEDs... lots and lots of PEDs... 

Comment 17 Jun 2019

My parents divorced when I was two years old. My mother got remarried when I was four years old to an Ohio State alumnus. I remember trying to find common ground with him to start our relationship off and him always watching Ohio State games. It was the first thing we bonded over and we’ve watched almost every game together since! 

Side Note: He has been an awesome father to me and my brother, couldn’t be more thankful for the sacrifices he has made for children who aren’t biologically his own! 

Comment 23 May 2019

I remember my buddy and I watching the replays of both semi-finals, realizing that Oregon only played three down lineman, and thinking that Zeke could go for 250 and 3 TDs... and we were pretty much right

Comment 23 May 2019

But seriously - you'll most likely have to deal with a lot more TTUN fans.

You're absolutely spot on with this. I grew up in Sylvania, and currently live in Toledo now. If I had to put a ratio to it, I would say it's 60/40 good guys but there are definitely plenty of Skunk Weasel fans who have come out of the woodwork in years past. 

As you've seen there are plenty of fellow 11W in the area if you are looking to watch games with some fellow Buckeyes!

Comment 22 May 2019

I really, truly wish I could like this more than once... I'm not sure why officials feel the need to allow dudes who are just fat versions of their fans tackle our DEs because they are simply incapable of blocking them. The same happened in last year's B1G Championship game against Wisconsin. We consistently recruit the best defensive lineman in the country, who are then coached by one of, if not THE greatest D-Line coach in the game... it's not a stretch to say that we really are better than the pedestrian offensive lines the B1G conference has to offer. 

Comment 21 May 2019

I’m honestly surprised they aren’t looking at DeAndre Haynes closer... I know his experience is limited but I got to see his coaching and player development up close while I was at Kent State and the dude is legit. He’s going to be a good coach someday and some program will be very happy that ScUM missed on him. 

Comment 06 May 2019

Completely agree with this MichiBuck. I always said I would have rather had the Buckeyes lost at Indiana in 2015 than Michigan State. I truly believe that once the loss happened, the weight of being "perfect" and "the favorite" was lifted and they were able to go back to playing confident, uninhibited football. 

Move that loss to Indiana in the beginning of October and not only do I think the Buckeyes steamroll the rest of the way through the regular season and decimate Iowa in the B10 Championship Game but the loss happens early enough that we wouldn't be snubbed from the Playoff. 

Comment 19 Apr 2019

Thank you Buckny! I was only able to catch bits and pieces of the spring game and have been looking for the full video. 

Comment 27 Feb 2019

First game I remember watching was the 2004 TTUN game. I can still remember Teddy racing down the sidelines to all but seal the upset win in Columbus. From that moment on I was hooked, and look forward to always having something to do on Saturdays in the fall.
