I've been a Buckeye fan since birth. I remember quite fondly my dad and I would climb onto the roof of the house every Saturday and early Sunday morning in order to adjust the antenna so that we could watch THE Ohio State Buckeyes' games. The ones that were not live, we always listened to religiously on the radio, and then stayed up late (it was the weekend) in order to receive our edition of the Dispatch so we could read the game recap as Hot-off-the-press as was possible at 3am. Watching the Buckeyes Replays on WOSU Sunday mornings at 9am were always the highlights of the fall in my opinion. And we NEVER missed them. Sometimes even being late for Church on occasion. Well..the Pastor at our church made the mistake of asking my Dad to try and be a little earlier next time on this one particular Sunday.This happened to be the Sunday before Thanksgiving and as it turns out was the same Sunday of WOSU's replay of the '87 TSUN game, Erle Bruce's last as Head Coach..My father quite emphatically explained to the entire congregation that his God..Our God is indeed a Buckeye!! And the very mere request of such a preacher could only be the work of those Devilish wolverine fans..Needless to say, we never stepped foot back inside his church. So for me, Buckeye Football is as close to religion as there is.

I love the portal for the student athletes..  I mean as long as the institutions want to operate under the guise that they are amateurs then by all means, allow them to transfer wherever they want to..  

Personally I’d love to see the FBS level do away with red-shirting all together as well.  Give the kids 6 years in order to play 60 games.  Current rule is 6 years to play 4 seasons. With the highest level potentially playing in 15 games each season.  That would remove the need for any athlete to be in doubt about their eligibility and eliminate any guessing games they have regarding medical issues.  If they are a senior and still within their windows and want to stick around an extra season before turning pro, then allow them to..  it’s ridiculous the way it is set up.

So a penalty box, like in hockey?  Lol

I love that idea..  Penalize the offending team for the 15-yarder like now.  Then have the player sit out and his team play a man short for several minutes (of actual game play) while that player serves his penalty.

Neither of you made any argument to address my original statement that “I don’t believe Dabo actually coaches that way.”  Just because you want to believe something doesn’t necessarily mean it is true.  Wilkins could very well have just done that on his own without any coaches input.

Comment 29 Dec 2019

Haha..  I don’t believe Dabo actually coaches that way.  However their track record does seem to signify a culture of tolerance that probably shouldn’t there.

Never in a million years will I say that I condone what Woody did.. But after watching that shit unfold last night.. I can certainly understand him a lot better...

Comment 29 Dec 2019

I’m never one to blame officials at all..  Penalties and settling for field goals along with allowing that go-ahead 94 yard drive at the end of the game, had just as much to do  with this loss.  But my goodness, man.. If that play would have happened in the end zone and the ball was knocked out after 3 steps, there’s no way in hell they would have overturned the call.  
I don’t get it.  I’ve seen some pretty egregious  calls before but I’m still shaking my head at that one.

My job is performance-based.  If we screw something up then we get called out for it and made to fix it and pay the consequences..  Forfeiture of game checks or fines or whatever shouldn’t be out of the question here, NCAA.. They’ve probably cost Ryan Day and his staff over $1 million or more in bonus money. Not to mention the amount that the conferences get from making the championship game.  There needs to be some penance for these officials. 

Comment 28 Dec 2019

It’s very possible that could be the case.. But I’m only judging by the question, when asked what percentage he felt he was at earlier in the week and then 11W having another story up not long after about how he wasn’t going to answer any more questions about his knee.. Lol

To me, that’s a sign he’s probably better and not really hampered by it.  But doesn’t want to give Clemson anything to game plan for.

Comment 25 Dec 2019

This is Ohio State, man.. It’s never enough.  We don’t play for second place, around here.

Comment 25 Dec 2019

You probably also believe that Trent Dilfer also won a Super Bowl for the Ravens, then...  Get outta here!

Comment 20 Dec 2019

I think it’s worth mentioning also, that Kevin Wilson was on staff with Brent Venables at Oklahoma back in the day.  He may help to provide a great deal of insight into his tendencies this time around..  At least it’s a better matchup than what we dealt with last time.

Speaking of Ohio State graduate Joe Burrow winning the Heisman Trophy.  I shared a link earlier about a fundraiser going around for the food-bank in his hometown and county of Athens:

I’m sure they’ll be very appreciative of anything that you guys can do to help.  This was one of my grandmother’s many dreams in her life and she started a food pantry here in Vinton County as a direct result of her work with this one.  So it’s very personal to  our family as well.  Thank you Buckeye Nation!  From the very bottom of our hearts.

Comment 16 Dec 2019

I’d like to know what Kyle’s thoughts are about wether the Buckeyes should really come out and play fast.  Trying to get off as many plays as they can in order to score early and often while, hopefully, wearing down this Clemson defense.  Or does he favor a more methodical and slower-paced offensive game plan for this game, in order to keep their offense off the field?  I’m thinking their offense is where their real strength lays.. but curious to hear what his break-downs reveal.

And for Dan.. for holidays with the family, do you prefer the slightly buzzed and carefree approach?  Or the stone-cold-sober and stressed to the gills reality of this time of year?   Lol
