  • SPORTS MOMENT: Favorite Buckeye moment came from watching Keith Byars kick off a shoe and take it to the house for a score. Were it not for Flutie's heroics in his final game Byars would have been making a speech at the Downtown Athletic Club instead of Doug.Hard to pick just one

If you're going to troll an SEC homer stick to the basics. Sherman's March, 0-1 in Civil Wars, coupons for Polygrip, jorts and those hideous Camouflage Crocs.

My comfort level with this velvetly roped off area is only exceeded by my age.

Uniforms have so much less influence on recruiting than just going out and kicking the shit out of your opponent. Save the trendy "Smurf Turf" and "Black Uni's" for those that have a history of suck.

We never really "know" what promises are made with 100% certainty.

I never want to have to speculate on promises made and/or delivered. I would prefer players attend based on Ohio State alone. You work to earn playing time. You work to gain respect.

We should never be in a position of writing checks our ass can't cash.

I find it unimaginable that people without having been a parent have such strong opinions regarding Mom's involvement here. While you may think you know what it's like and what "it should" be like, you simply have no clue. As a father of five ranging in age from 20's to teens, I feel amply qualified to voice an opinion on the subject, however, I can't. I don't know Malik like his mother does. I can tell you this though, I have kids that I have every belief they will weigh their decisions carefully, make those decisions and live with the consequences both good and bad. I have other kids who would make those decisions haphazardly, fall flat on their faces and blame someone else lol, no amount of "parenting" can steer all in the right direction.

Every person is unique, each have their strong and weak points, none of us here are in a position to say what's right and wrong in this situation. I'll say this though, at least Mom here is doing HER due diligence to make certain it's all been thought through by their family, Malik will likely thank her one day.

I'm one of those guys that really looks at the medical hardship cases when others do it, most often because they're 12/13 players over their limit. We're at 84/85 whichever...point is there is little doubt of attrition totaling 2/3 players. When teams place players on medical hardship that are sitting at 97...I'm more likely to call BS.

Game changers welcomed, love to hate 'em.
