Well..I guess giving Cash credit for writing that song makes about as much sense as giving Dayton credit for having the best history then. Hahaha. +1 to you, good Sir
As a transplant who currently resides in the city of Chillicothe, I was fully prepared to call bullshit on your obviously homeristic declaration of Dayton having the states best history. But then it was pointed out to me that while it pales in comparison to the state's first-capital, only Dayton was referred to by name in Johnny Cash's musical balled of "I've been everywhere, man." So I will concede this notion, since our greastest American-storyteller saw fit to include it in the tales of his travels.
I saw someone talking about the videos in one of the other forums, describing it as a hilight video of all our first-round picks the last few years. The comments even included a tweet from Birm, I believe. My question is: Was this the same video they used during the Spring Game as well? Looked like it was from the vids that were posted. I thought that was pretty well done. Definitely planting the seeds for the future in a recruits head, and showing what can become at a place like Ohio State.
Early vote for #StopReachin to replace the #ShitHappensBumJuice, hashtag for the 2017 season. New season, new hastags.. Lol
Lots of great benefits.. But apparently he'll have to find his own way around campus because universityprovided escorts are banned there.
All these people claiming dogs are better cats must be blind to the fact that cats never sniff your crotch without asking, lick another cat's butthole, go in and drink from your toilet and then try to lick you in the face while you are eating.
Congrats to Kirk Ferentz's son. I'm sure Iowa's head-honchos will be in to negotiate his lifetime contract very soon. Never change, Hawkeyes! #MayVodkaSamLiveForever
I should preface this by saying I'm in no way in favor of playing early season cupcakes every year. I would much rather prefer to play the best teams from around the country. However:
Having attended an Ohio University, other than Ohio State, I for one would love to see the "cup cake" money stay in-state. Lots of schools have to rely on subsidies from their general funds (tax dollars and tuition costs) in order to maintain somewhat of a decent athletic-experience for their student-athletes. These huge paydays go a long way in helping our in-state brethren get back-in-the-red, so to speak. Because The Ohio State's athletics department is entirely self-sufficient, however, I will stop just short of making the claim that tOSU should feel obligated to do so. It's a noble gesture to be sure, but until the other in-state schools finally get past the building stages and roll out a consistent winner, the clamor for them to be on the Buckeyes' schedule will continue to fall on deaf ears.
If you ever get the chance.. Check out the Mount Union display at the College Football Hall of Fame.
They have a little display for each school that has ever won a national title in their own little cubicles. The Purple Raiders display fills an entire room. It's quite impressive
Wow.. Only one home game in October and one in November.. That's tough.
The State University of New Jersey is now seeking part-time, cannon crew. Conditions are mostly sedentary. Occasional exposure to weather elements and artificial lighting, alcohol served on premises. Must be comfortable with unruly, non conforming and/or wierdly dressed visitors. Perfect for semi-retired, or heart-transplant patients that cannot be exposed to loud noises. No experience necessary. Please see Rutgers Football for more information.
Honestly after reading that tweet about Michael Vick going into the VT Hall of Fame, I half-expected a to see a But Pete Rose never killed no Dogs, meme.
Nice.. '93 here. It's definitely an interesting place, to be sure. Haha
I think this would be a great film study topic to see if there were actually open lanes to throw to the tight-end or not the last few seasons. We seemingly hear every year that this is the season that the playbook is going to utilize our tight-ends, yet it only yields a handful of opportunites as it progresses. My honest impression is that the offensive line doesn't get the rush turned out enough to open things over the middle of the field for our tight-ends. Pair that with the perception of J.T being a little shorter in stature and unable to see over the line as well as a couple of Myer's more famous QBs and it feels as if the passing game suffers as a result.
But are these perceptions based in some reality? Or is it simply the play calling in general that hasn't benefited the tight-ends as well as in Urban's Florida days? The SEC Hypetrain? I honestly don't believe the only reason the UF tight-ends gained such a feared reputation was because of their superior athletic ability. We've had our share of great athletes at OSU as well. It just has added up to the same results, as of yet.
Mine will forever be the 1990 game against Illinois in the Horseshoe. The game itself sucked wind.. I believe they even beat us by two touchdowns. But its always going to be special because I had just recently passed my driving test and was tasked with driving my grandmother(who didnt drive) up to the University Med-Center where Grandpa was being treated. He had a room on like the 7th or 8th floor that you could get a partial view of the field from his window and we sat there to eat dinner with him, and watch the game. His doctor came in to tell us sometime during that fourth quarter that his cancer had finally went in to remission, and we could take him home after nearly 4 weeks in the hospital. He has since passed away from natural causes, but I don't think anything can ever top that feeling.
I also live near Chillicothe.. Used to make deliveries to Knockemstiff. That same route included stops in Lattaville, Nipgen, Cynthiana (lots of Amish there) Bluecreek, Idaho and the town of Seaman. I thought the names of each one was funny as hell.
Seaman also has a farm supply and garden center in the middle of town.. And their sign is glorious:
There is a town named Hemlock, up in Perry county where Miller high-school is located. We used to play against them quite often back in my day.
Nice list. All are very deserving.
I think I would have included Vrabel also.. Plus for those of us who are old enough to remember him.. Pepper Johnson used to be a force in Tecmo Bowl which for all intents and purposes had him playing defensive-end opposite of L.T.
My inner Sheldon Cooper really likes that Purdue logo..
Does the Lebron lego count for our basketball team?
I attended a game at Minnesota with my dad in the old Metrodome once when I was around 10-12 years old and actually asked one of their fans what the 'W' stood for, without realizing that we were on the visitors side of the field.. Lol
Ha! I will do my best to serve thee kingdom well!
Tulsa spelled backwards is a slut. They're used to getting scored on then being treated with apathy, even from their biggest fans. We've got higher standards!
Yes, you are correct. Thank you for pointing that out. It is still is one of my favorites, though.
We should create one with Rutgers.. Loser has to wear a big ass Laverne-style scarlet letter 'L' on their chest for the entire next year.
Ohio University could start one with West Virginia for best party school.. Winner gets to
bong drink beer from the trophy off the roof of the press-box.
All seriousness, though, I've always been a fan of The Commander in Chiefs Trophy that is awarded to the winner of the Army-Navy Game. Not so much for the appearance, as to what it represents.
I'm sure, somewhere in some alternative universe, there is a Penn State fan laughing at their precocious attempts at trying to make a rivalry where one doesn't exist...
