Sunday Morning Coffee: September 18, 2016

Inside of Room 17 on the second floor of Gould Hall off Asp Avenue on the Oklahoma University Norman campus sat a surly Austin Kendall. His roommate had not returned from the day before – off elsewhere while the heat died down. Austin had made a statement earlier in the week calling The Ohio State […]

Harbaugh Wants to Clear The Air

On Jim Harbaugh’s radio show Tuesday night he seemingly had a need to clear the air. The second segment of his show the TTUN coach was asked if there was anything he wanted to address: He did – of course! The world of College Football has been buzzing (Thank God for YouTube) after TTUN spanked […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: September 13, 1992

Kirk Herbstriet, the starting Quarterback for The Ohio State University, was a little sore as he stepped into the McDonalds on North High Street – directly across the street from campus. He looked around momentarily before recognizing Steve Tovar, the Senior Linebacker who he shared co-captain duties with. After every home game since they had […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: November 06, 1920

Gaylord Stinchcomb, the consensus All-American halfback for the Buckeyes, had just stepped from his dorms at the German House on West 11th. He stood momentarily looking toward the darkening sky as the threat of rain appeared imminent. It was just a few days following the Presidential elections in which two Ohioans were the top of […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: October 26, 1919

The Sunday morning breeze was brisk. A settling of coldness had dropped anchor on the region – hovering just a degree or two above the freezing mark. Quietness had descended in the early morning hours, only a distant rumbling of nature, a whisking wind, or a car not so near, managed to eke any semblance […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: October 19, 1919

The young man exited the house at 970 Oak Street at exactly six-thirty in the morning. A chill was in the air – the cloudiness simmered any attempts of the sun’s brightness from unlocking any hopes of a nicer day. The young man buttoned up the brown wool jacket he had just slipped his arms […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: October 15, 1916

The wind whistled sharply as the sun began to rise on this crisp Sunday morning. John Wilce rolled over from his slumber, having not slept well at all. His night had been dominated with recalling the day before.  It had indeed been an event. “Coffee?” He whispered to his sleeping wife, Minerva, who had the blanket […]

Sunday Morning Coffee: May 04, 1890

The Sunday morning breeze blasted through the untidy room. The sun’s brightness also began its commanding appearance. It shone directly onto the face of Alexander Lilley, who rolled to his side in an attempt to rid the nuisance and gather a few extra moments of sleep. He knew he’d be hearing a knock soon enough […]

What If Lebron Had Been A Buckeye?

I must confess I love fantasy pieces. I am not necessarily speaking of ‘Star Wars’ and space adventures or some of the gothic stuff, or even comic books. I am speaking of sports fantasy. Every year I envision the Buckeyes winning the National Title in football, basketball (Men’s and Women’s), rugby, track and field… and […]

Okay – all of you OSU Football know-it-alls the moment is upon you. The challenge I lay before you is twenty questions reference The Ohio State University and their storied football program. The questions I chose arguably could have been better – even worse. But the questions remain. Just how good are you? The answers […]

TTUN Beware: It’s All in the Eyes

I have no idea why I even care … or is it more of grinding glass dust into the whiny eyes of the opposition? But, frankly, the opposition is Northwestern, Penn State, Indiana, and Illinois, so on and on. What I speak of here is the enemy – TTUN…the rodents of the road-kill state … […]

The False Prophecy Of Jimbo

10-3 in the first year at TTUN. 39-24 college record overall – which includes Stanford and the University of San Diego. Signed as the 2nd highest paid college coach in all of the NCAA at $7,000,400 per year; that comes to $700,040 per victory. I speak of Jim Harbaugh – TTUN’s Head Coach. Yep! The […]

Let’s talk Men’s Basketball

.. for a minute. Or two. (Thad knows what I’m talking about.) Ohio State men’s basketball just endured a season that certainly wasn’t the best of times, nor was it the worst of times. It was a season that, if we were sane and realistic with ourselves, was what we expected. Before I get into […]

Talking 10 Trolls Ohio State.. again

.. and still can’t get it right. (Image courtesy gizmodo.com) I had a little article brought to my attention on Thursday. Basically, Andy weaves a tale with what appear to be two story lines; the first story is to create a context  for his second story, which is the real story. First Fable Andy starts […]

Urban is looking at you. (Image courtesy of campusinsiders.com) Welcome back to Episode 2, where we cover “trolling for the sake of trolling”. Today’s topic is how Andy felt, or at least stated, that Ohio State had it’s lunch eaten by Michigan and Michigan State regarding Army All-American Bowl commitments. Per the writer: Just how […]
