(I expect downvotes for this) To hell with four teams. I'm one of the extremely limited number of BCS fans. Think about it: the objective of the BCS was to find the two best teams and really, outside of two years, it did exactly that. People can bitch and moan about the non championship game teams, but the championship contenders were correct 87% of the time. I've come to accept the playoff (begrudgingly), but anything more than four would kill the allure of college football. The people clamoring for 6 or 8 or 64 are all fans of the fifth or sixth ranked team that year. I imagine if Buckeye fans really took off their scarlet-tinted glasses, they'd agree that the team did not deserve to be in the last two years and quite frankly, would anyone have expected those defenses to hold the other teams that made it? I wouldnt have.

"SMU might be legit. I can't get them out of my top 5 without screwing with the stats hard enough to make me feel dirty. I've had them at #5 since week 7, and they've been in my top ten since week 5, so maybe it is time to buy in to this SMU team? Something doesn't feel right about it, but idk what to do about it at this point... maybe they are for real." Death penalty oughtta do it....

Logged in for the first time in about three or so years (I think) because I've got a lot of problems with you people.

I strongly, strongly abhor a significant portion of the Ohio State fan base.  First, are the idiots who make all of us look bad by being complete pricks when it's uncalled for.  See a kid wearing a Michigan shirt in the mall on a mid-May Tuesday and just start going on in him because you're a real fan?  GTFO.

The people on here who post a forum topic with 'nice' or 'great' article which happens to speak to Ohio State glowingly, but then turn around and say 'ESECPN is out to get us again' when posting another topic that shows the Buckeyes in a bad light...grow up.  If you want to post an article that touches on Ohio State, then just say 'article about Ohio State'.

The people in the Shoe who are a thousand years old and can't be bothered to get loud on 3rd or 4th and inches in the biggest game of the year and actively tell those around them to sit down and quiet down?  Get out of the stadium and stay plastered to your plastic wrapped couch if you can't root for your team.

Those that are so obsessed with the band...just ugh.  Nobody pays the exorbitant ticket prices to go and listen to/watch the band.  The band, while great, is merely an add on to the main event.  The forum topic on here last week or the week before when someone wanted the bands added to the next NCAA video game?  C'mon.  You know as well as literally everyone else you might watch it once and then skip right on through to the actual game. 

To the people who claim Urban and now Ryan need to focus more on recruiting Ohio kids?  Clearly the reason Clemson and Alabama are running college football is because they've got the rosters stocked with Ohio kids.  The bluest of blue bloods (the aforementioned Clemson and Alabama, and Ohio State and Oklahoma) take the best of the best regardless of where they come from.  If that's from Ohio, then cool.  If not, don't care.

And lastly, the people who spent yesterday commenting on the article about All-Tressel team vs. All-Urban team and saying Tressel would win?  Open your eyes.  You can claim recency bias all you want, but nostalgia is clearly clouding your vision.  There was a fairly seismic shift in football around 2010 which rendered most of the All-Tressel team grossly outdated.  Hawk, Carpenter, and Wilhelm were great LBs for their time, but they'd be gassed after the first quarter against the All-Urban team.  We actually saw exactly that scenario play out in 2006.

I otherwise am relatively fine with the school and football team so guess that's all I've got.  Signing off for another several years.

The hypocrisy in this thread is absurd. Note before I begin: I stopped commenting in the forums and essentially reverted to lurker status on staff articles weeks ago because of this forum topic: So, when it's a pit bull coming into someone's yard and NOT HARMING ANYONE, all of the knuckle dragging mouth breathers on this board call for that poster to get a gun and shoot it. But as soon as it's a player on a non-Buckeye collegiate football team beating a dog he owns, that person is shit and needs to be dropped in a pit of rabid dogs? A lot of you need to deeply look inwards at yourself if you're one of the retards that proposed the other OP start shooting dogs instead of stop being a lazy ass cheapskate and build a fence if he's so concerned about dogs in his yard. And before anyone starts their garbage "he's protecting his family and a human life is more important than a dog's" bullshit, go ahead and read through all of the gasping reactions above on this thread. Reading the comments here, you'd think 11W is an arm of the ASPCA. Reading the comments on the thread I linked, you'd think 11W is a bunch of inbred Bama fans who ran out of varmint to shoot. Which are you? Regardless of your answer, I really am done with these forums now. Mods/Staff: I understand if this ban hammers me and sends me to Mman jail in Serbia.

Dear Baylor, Tennesse, FSU, et al: This is how you handle these situations. I don't care that there haven't been charges pressed. Something is officially on record and the accused is gone. IF after the details come out from a legitimate police investigation, ahem Tallahassee, and that investigation says otherwise or the accuser recants, then you can look at possible reinstatement.

No fan of soccer here. My reason: soccer fans (in general, not all but many) rank right next to Michigan fans in arrogance. I've had this exact conversation with many a soccer fan after the offensive team gets the ball deep (like standing right in front of the goalie deep) into the defensive zone only to then kick it 75 yards backwards: Me: what the hell was that?! You were 5 yards from the goal! Fan: it's metres (always res and not ers, because arrogance) and because that's the strategy. Me: so the strategy is to get in close and do absolutely nothing?! Fan: you just don't understand the chess match that is soccer. Me: ... -Scene- All of that said, I do applaud soccer for not going to commercial after every possession.

Baseball: Sandlot

Football: Friday Night Lights, The Waterboy

I do, but I'm not too sure about dropping it in a public forum (some of the people around these parts are jackals). Send me a message through here or let me know of an email address and I'd be happy to give you all the info you need.

Not sure if you have any IT background, but there's a company in Mason that I used to work for that likes hiring young'uns like yourself for user support and entry pay typically sits around 30-35k. Plus, though they'll expect you to work some times outside of the standard 9-5, you'll have Saturdays. If interested, shoot me a message on here and I'll direct you to their site.

The last time I recall the Buckeyes running a traditional triple option, Bobby Hoying pitched the ball into fullback Mickey Sualua's head resulting in a turnover. The loss that rainy Orlando day was to Tennessee, a loss I still despise twenty one years later.

Perhaps after seeing that 2014 number, people will finally stop giving Dontre crap and calling him a bust. "Hurrr I watched a high school highlight video of his and he was recruited by Oregon so he should put up 3000 receiving yards, 2000 rushing yards, and 75 touchdowns and he hasn't yet. #bustcusiboughtintofakehype Durrrrrr."

Guy has been solid when healthy and I look forward to him having a standout year this season.

Just end the discussion entirely and melt the damn thing down to its base material. The fact that they're holding on to it keeps that flicker of hope alive in the mouth breathers overy at #psutwitter and distracts then from their real goal of bitching about anti-PSU Big Ten conspiracies.

I'm not a country fan at all but the girl I was dating loved Kenny Chesney and I was trying to see her naked so... Long story short, Chesney puts on a great show, no professional athletes shouted any racial slurs, and I saw her naked. Overall, a great night.

They're at least amusing. I go to Austin a few times a year and that's the station my dad listens to. I remember a few years back they were previewing Texas' football game that day against Kansas and one of the guys asked the other "What are the odds that you think Kansas can pull off the upset?" The other guy's response was a flat "Zero."

Fast forward to the end of the game and I believe Kansas either took it to overtime and lost or had a field goal attempt to win or force overtime that they missed. Zero guy would have thrown himself off the clock tower had the upset occurred.

I've got two as well. My first day at a small IT software company in Cincinnati led to me having to construct my desk chair. A little odd but small companies don't always have someone to do this sort of task so whatever. Problem with that though was that they couldn't get my computer set up on time, or even for the first three weeks. So after shadowing with basically the entire company for a few hours each day, I put together more chairs. I eventually had an army of desk chairs at my disposal. Second story came while I was still working at the company in my first. I had decided I wanted out of that company and was looking for a new job. Didn't have much to offer employers at the time though so it was a long, arduous search. I finally caught the attention of one "company" who asked me to come in for an interview. I do just that and the interview seems to be moving along well. But out of no where, they basically send me out with one of their employees to do door to door sales of discounted Columbus Crew tickets. The position I was interviewing for was another IT position so I was naturally perturbed about having to bother people to sell a product I myself wanted nothing to do with. The guy I was walking around with all day was super upbeat and constantly telling me how great a job it was despite not making a sale all day and after six hours, I apologized preemptively for being rude and then told him to shut the hell up. Walked away immediately after back to my car and that was that. Though it was mildly amusing when the supervisor called me the next day saying he had heard great things about the previous day and that they wanted me to join. No thanks.

The text on that page is very bad. I was going to post a couple of suggestions before I knew what was up but you'd probably be better served just transcribing it manually, hopefully on a better made site for all to enjoy. Just as the subject matter demands.
