    ysubuck Be water my friend.

    I don't care where you go, you aren't going to get the fan / alumni support that you get when you are a Buckeye.
  3. They said Kyle Andrews was a defensive back... HA!!

    To me this one comment says it all:

    "All of the guys on the practice field were coming up to our players saying, 'Man, it must be something to go to Ohio State. The fans even come to a practice.'

    Just a reminder of how special Ohio State is.

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand.

    My dad drove up the game and said it was unbelievable how many Buckeye fans were there. People were tailgating off their golf carts..... OSU was well represented.

    I was interviewed for a job in Houston back in the 1970s by a guy who graduated from UM. He drew attention to the fact that I wrote that I graduated from The Ohio State University. He said he just didn't get it. He knew another man who graduated from Ohio State and why did we have to add the word The in front of it. When I said that it is the official name of the University he argued that it was bigger than that, that we had some kind of problem because we "just can't seem to leave Ohio State, you never seem to leave Ohio State."

    I'm sure that was a great moment in his personal growth. It always is when you realize one of life's central truths in one of those "Eureka!" moments.

    We don't leave Ohio State. Ever.

    I live on another continent, in another culture. A large framed poster of the 'Shoe hangs on the wall above my desk, a gift from my wife. She has had to cross that cultural divide and come to terms with Ohio State football over these many years of marriage. She's come to realize that football isn't a game. It's part of our culture and we take it very seriously. Ohio State isn't just a team. It's a part of our identity.

    If you listen carefully, ESPiN is having one of those "Eureka!" moments right now! :osu:

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    A couple, friends of our family, are now retired and living at The Villages. The guy is an OSU alum, and they're HUGE Buckeye fans. They e-mailed me a few pictures of them meeting and chatting with Tressel. They said that he was really nice to talk to, and enjoying all the support from the fans there. It is pretty awesome to hear about this kind of support that we all show for our guys.

    Steve19, you nailed it. I know it's a part of my identity.

    :oh: :io:
  8. Holy Buckeye!

    Holy Buckeye! Next Victim Egg Hoke!

    Fellows, if any of you are in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on">Orange County</st1:City>, <st1:State w:st="on">California</st1:State> on a fall Saturday, stop by a place called National Sports Grill in <st1:City w:st="on"><ST1:pSanta Ana</ST1:p</st1:City>. It's the home to the <ST1:p<st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Orange</st1:PlaceName> <st1:PlaceType w:st="on">County</st1:PlaceType></ST1:p/ Inland Empire OSU fan/ alumni club. We have about 250 for normal games and about 400 for "The Game." We have our own Buckeye room filled with appropriate decor and a OSU merchandise table to pick up the latest gear. It's a true <ST1:p<st1:PlaceType w:st="on">sea</st1:PlaceType> of <st1:PlaceName w:st="on">Scarlet</st1:PlaceName></ST1:p and Gray. Besides football Saturdays we always have parties and different functions. It's a true testimony to the love for our school. I wish recruits would stop in and see this spectacle 2500 miles away from <ST1:p<st1:City w:st="on">Columbus </st1:City></ST1:pand absorb the loyalty.<O:p</O:p
