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.

In today’s day and age of being able to easily re-sale game tickets online, I’d say, If you can afford them then go for it.  They shouldn’t be hard to offload if situations arise and you end up not going.

Dude.. Lol. We’re a school that worships Woody Hayes.  I’m not sure I’d be calling anyone else out for their pettiness. Although I do see your point.  But in the one game that Harbaugh got to personally see him play, Chase basically got shutout in nearly every statistical category.  I can justify it..  he’s stupid and completely f’ng wrong.  But I could see it.

Just to play Devil’s advocate here, but if you’re willing to blame his O-Line for him not having bad game vs the Buckeyes (which is my opinion also, fwiw) then you have to be willing to give them credit for his good games as well.  That’s why I don’t think either running back wins it. I believe  it comes down to either Chase or Fields.  My opinion, it should be Young, but we’ll probably have to wait and  see how self-righteous these voters are in regards to his suspension and wether it has an impact or not.

I don’t think the talent gap is that far away for ttun to where they can’t at least be competitive In this game by any means..  Urban has said repeatedly that when you’re recruiting a player you have to recruit the right player.  You want the types of players that are coachable and willing to work hard. And can focus on what is important for reaching their goals.   You recruit his family and his support system.  It’s about the culture surrounding the players and your program as much if not more so than it is just about the players.  I think that’s where they fall extremely short.  And weird little Jimmy has a long uphill climb to go to reach that summit.

Hell at this point I’d be in favor of putting them in the west..  Western Sibera.. hahaha.  Those bastards have a lot more pain coming their way once a year from now to eternity... 

I honestly don’t understand what changing divisions would solve for them.  As it is now, they only have to suffer once a year.  If they were to change, then if they ever made it to Indy, they would get a second beat down every season.. That’s almost sadistic...

+1 for you.. but to be fair, I’d also bet that the majority of that 95% only learned that horrible song from having to listen to it over and over and over again throughout our childhoods... Lol

Those sumbitches have always been obnoxious as hell and every damn time they beat us it felt like they just reproduced and multiplied.  That damn song seemed like it was their mating call... 

Comment 30 Nov 2019

I’ve been complaining for 2 games now about how it looked like he wasn’t keeping it when I thought he should have and Dobbins was stuffed on a few carries as a result.. not to mention all the extra work he seemed to be getting.  That would definitely explain why.  Hopefully he’s able to heal up soon 

Comment 29 Nov 2019

You’re a Buckeye fan man.. you’re smarter than this.  Go rent an auger take the boy over to his friends house right now.. dtag hos ass out of bed and dig those freaking holes out right now sooo you don’t miss the game.  Suck it up, man.. you got this.

Comment 27 Nov 2019

Ummm.. Yes.  You’re right.  However, my comment was more tongue-in-cheeck rather than a realistic scenario.

I just wanted to bash his son..  Lol

But I definitely get your point of view, though 

Comment 27 Nov 2019

Orlando Pace is probably my favorite player of all time .. but if I could pick absolutely any former Buckeye alive or dead?  I’m going with Paul Brown.  The man is an absolute legend and probably had forgotten more about the game than any of us put together..    plus I’d selfishly like to tell him to make his son sell the damn Bengals and get us an owner that wants to win games..  Lol. May he R.I.P.

Comment 25 Nov 2019

Lol. Upvote for your comment because it’s funny..

But no.. please no.  I freaking hate noon games.  I’m fine with 3:30.  But working second shift and getting home around 3-4 am then heading up to tailgate just a few hours later is a tough turn-around.  The championship game in Indy would be even worse.. I’m going to really appreciate the extra few hours on Championship weekend..
