Lydell Ross is your friend

Being a running back for the Ohio State Buckeyes this decade was certainly interesting. It always had it’s highs, and it had it’s lows. But it was always interesting. Especially for our RBs, it was either sink or swim, and you know who the swimmers were. On the field, they carried the names of Beanie, […]

James Laurinaitis – You can't stop him and you can't spell his name

They told us again and again and again that he wasn’t going to be a great linebacker. He’s too small. He’s overrated. He’s not even a good linebacker. But enough about what Penn State fans think. Every game I watched, Little Animal got better and better. And when I was there for his final home […]

Raymont Harris – Day #34

Raymont Harris graduated from the Ohio State University in the Top 5 of all-time Buckeye running backs. His 2,649 yards were mostly from bowling over defenders, and generally proving the cliche’ about “running downhill”. Since his departure from Columbus, five more backs have since passed him on the all-time yardage list (Eddie George, Pepe Pearson, […]

John Borton is finally in the Hall Of Fame

Nearly three years ago, I began this blog for multiple reasons, all of which had to do with my love of Ohio state football. One of those reasons, as I stated in my inaugural post, was a quarterback from the 50’s named John Borton. In the mid-to-late 80s, I became friends with a wonderful person […]

Why Ohio State will win the Fiesta Bowl

OK, so we’ve all seen the “teh Big Ten suuuucks” comments all over the place, and we know that nobody outside of this glorious state isn’t giving the Buckeyes a chance in hell tomorrow night.  But let’s take a step back from the bash-fest and discuss what I think will happen in Arizona. Ohio State […]

It’s officially Michigan Week

Bring it on, bitches! Ohio State, fresh off a 30-20 win at Illinois, now gets to focus on That Team Up North without looking past anybody. The Buckeyes return home for their final regular season game at 9-2, while TTUN comes to Columbus at 3-8. Today’s game was rather anti-climactic, but any fan of the […]

I can’t believe what I just saw

It’s a nice fall day here in northeast Ohio, and I’m finishing up raking the leaves in my front yard. A squirrel just climbed down the tree near my front door, and began sprinting towards the street, racing right past me.  When the squirrel got near me, it did a little dodge-and-weave around me, and […]

Iowa's biggest weakness

Jim Tressel and company does not need me to tell them what Iowa’s weaknesses are. They already know. But since I did the research, I’d better spread the knowledge, because who knows….maybe one of my readers has no idea what that weakness might be. It’s their run defense. Iowa is not capable of slowing down […]
