    I was in my mid 20’s at the OSU game. Before the game we hit up some bars and the trash talk wasn’t that bad but it was there. But walking to the stadium it was absolutely ridiculous at how much vulgar language the students used. I asked one guy why they were so damn rude. I said we paid to fly up here to experience yall’s game day traditions and see The Shoe, I mean it’s not like we are Michigan. Once we made it outside the stadium we were welcomed in by the alumni and offered food and beer to hangout. They were good people. Before the game started I bought a OSU Nike T-shirt just to have as a souvenir. And thank God I did because when we left the game my brother and his friend wanted to go out partying and I was not in the mood. So I started walking down the road by myself and their fans started rioting and picking fights. I put that red Ohio State T-shirt on and it’s probably the only thing that saved me from being pummeled by some drunk frat dudes.

    You damn right it is..

    This reminds me, a buddy and I once got removed ( actually, the staff relocated us ) from a Mavs game for being rowdy, loud and proud. We were sitting around some families of the away team and somebody got pissed.. love it.

    Why would the Scientology thing make it hard to like him? Is it a Christianity thing? Most of Hollywood is atheist, so I’m not following where your going with it. Just curious.

    I don’t have any first or second hand info about Scientology but let’s just say the things I’ve read are not flatteringly all, assuming they are true. And he’s at the head of it.

    I’m not saying I don’t like people associated with Scientology but many people have serious negative thoughts toward him because if his affiliation.

    My brother and I were there that night, sat with the UT parents (thank you Frank Okam). We started the walk back to our hotel thinking we could catch a cab (wrong). So we walked I think 5 miles, and that 1st mile away from the stadium, we had more "F you's" and had a drunk dude walking up towards us swinging a tree branch at us. I don't think we've ever walked that fast in our lives with our heads on a swivel the whole time.
    However we were so jacked up about the win, adrenaline was sky high, that it actually made the win even sweeter listening to those poor sports cry and moan.
    But safety was not a given, and I remember thinking I bet there will be many fans who got assaulted on the way out of there.

    Got you.. Yeah, I don’t know much about that group or his part in it. But I would assume he is a leader or at least, a face for the organization. Just curious your opinion on how that makes him hard to like specifically.

    You people with your data and links.. I could be off a little with my blanket statement. Just trying to get McHorn’s thoughts in his post..

    But that is the company line, isn’t it?

    Tiger might win a tournament, but winning a major will be a feat, to say the least. Yes, he's possibly the best of all time (I still say it's Nicklaus), but he has fused vertebrae. Here is the list (pretty sure it's accurate) of post-WWII golfers who were 40 or over when they won a major. Hogan is the most amazing story considering the injury he sustained prior to 1953. Only Nicklaus, O'Meara, Hogan and Boros have won more than one major after age 39:

    AGE 48 - Julius Boros, 1968 US PGA Championship, Pecan Valley;

    AGE 46 - Jack Nicklaus, 1986 Masters;

    AGE 45 - Hale Irwin, 1990 US Open, Medinah,
    Jerry Barber, 1961 US PGA Championship, Olympia Fields;

    AGE 44 - Lee Trevino, 1984 US PGA Championship, Shoal Creek,
    Roberto De Vicenzo, 1967 Open, Royal Liverpool;

    AGE 43 - Phil Mickelson, 2013 Open, Muirfield,
    Ben Crenshaw, 1995 Masters,
    Raymond Floyd, 1986 US Open, Shinnecock Hills
    Julius Boros, 1963 US Open, The Country Club;;

    AGE 42 - Ernie Els, 2012 Open, Royal Lytham,
    Darren Clarke, 2011 Open, Royal St George’s,
    Payne Stewart, 1999 US Open, Pinehurst No. 2,
    Tom Kite, 1992 US Open, Pebble Beach,
    Gary Player, 1978 Masters,
    Tommy Bolt, 1958 US Open, Southern Hills;

    AGE 41 - Vijay Singh, 2004 US PGA Championship, Whistling Straits,
    Mark O’Meara, 1998 Open, Royal Birkdale, and 1998 Masters,
    Sam Snead, 1954 Masters,,
    Henry Cotton, 1948 Open, Muirfield;

    AGE 40 - Ben Hogan, 1953 Open, Carnoustie, and 1953 US Open, Oakmont, and 1953 Masters,
    Jack Nicklaus, 1980 US PGA Championship, Oak Hill, and 1980 US Open, Baltusrol.

    If by "company" you mean "logical" then I guess so. I don't care either way or about any of it. Was just curious if there was an intriguing data set you knew of that I didn't.

    A broad brush brings pointed critique.

    Similar story. Was with a few buddies after the game in Columbus. A very nice guy came over and said that he wouldn’t be able to sleep that night unless we allowed him to give us a few OSU shirts that he had in his car. Ill never forget that singular act of kindness in a sea of jerks.

    Google and read about people’s attempts to leave. Make your own determination after reading about it.

    Hey, that there might be a problem with "Bevo Blvd." before games because of too many people is a supposition on my part. I struggled with how to put that possibility into the "buy or sell" format. I put fans in parenthesis because I'm not sure that only fans will be attracted. You seem pretty confident that anyone that shows up is a fan. Let's see how this plays out.

    After thought: I'm glad you brought up your memories of attending a game at the Horseshoe. That horrible experience - as told to me by family members in attendance - was in the back of my mind when I posed the question.

    You should do a "Top 10 performances" for Kurt Russell; long career, some stellar movies, vastly underrated

    I'm actually proud of the fact that the Hermans did something to help Courtney out. And as for that shit hole, yeah I was there also in 2005. I had a great gig whereby I took another employee (an OSU grad) and two clients - one of whom was also a UT alum and another college football fanatic who turned out to be the current Texas AG who gets so much grief on here. First, we were packed like sardines. Second, the moment Limas Sweed scored, a kid in front of us who stood up to cheer (I mean like 12 or 13) had a beer dumped on his head. We get ready to leave and my OSU friend says, "Look, let's be very careful even though school's not in session (don't know if true), we burn shit when we win!" So my drunk fellow UT alum immediately goes running off in front of us yelling at the top of his lungs "Hook'em!!!" and we all try to catch up to make sure he doesn't get killed. Well an OSU fan walking past us sticks out his arm and elbows Ken Paxton to the ground and as we try to make sure nothing else further ensues there, we lose the drunk friend. We find him (after dodging several beers and fights) about 10 minutes later at an OSU tailgate where he's taken over and holding court. He greets us like nothing is up and is offering us beers from the tailgaters as I see they are quickly thinking of murdering us all. Fortunately for us we miraculously hail a cab and make it back to our hotel without further incident. To hear the stories afterward at the airport waiting for our flight was just amazing... scum of the Earth.

    The other thing to look at with Tom Cruise (and Leonardo di Caprio can be put in this category as well)...how many other actors/actresses did he make into stars (Rebecca Demornay, Kelly McGillis, Renee Zellweger)?

    We got into about 3 brawls that night trying to get the hell away from High street. Eventually had to jog 4 miles and through fraternity row to get to our crap-Hole hotel. Hate that place. Greatest game I ever went to though.

    1. Good shit, Ketch
    2. Dude pissed about people watching the game outside the stadium is a doosh
    3. I've long heard it was turrble, but everyone's pretty unanimous shock, awe and disdain for Columbus is pretty incredible to me for some reason. I can only imagine how truly awful it had to be to make every single person that went up there that weekend have pure disgust with the experience. I almost feel like I have to go for the next series just to see it for myself.

    People like this are a direct result of why our game atmosphere suck! Too many pretentious self righteous stick in the mud assholes in the stands.

    @Ketchum. As it pertains to #1... "disingenuous manure", you are much to kind. Actually it's a load of freaking horseshit put forth by the lowest vermin I can think of

    Those are quotation marks, not parentheses!

    Anyone wanting to know the person who posted that question can go to the original post asking for the Buy or Sell questions. I called them out!! I thought it was a dumb question!

    I promise, I’m not trolling here. Don’t know anything about Mike Farrell. Is he the owner of the rivals site and @Ketchum boss? Or is he just a reporter for rivals with no affiliation to a specific university’s fan site?

    Great write up tonight and I agree 100% on everything you mentioned about OSU and Columbus Ohio in September 2005

    But... LOL on the above.
    Either you didn’t watch Hazard’s world class performance in the World Cup, or you have a severe case of Liverpool Homerism. Or both.

    There’s a reason why rumors of a $200M offer from Barça are flying. And it’s certainly not for Mane’s services.

    Edit: Real Madrid, not Barça.

    A little too early to dream big. They easily beat lowly West Ham at home, which was what was expected of them.
    They will probably have depth issues once Premiere League + Cup + Champions League are in full swing.
    And... as much as I dislike Man City, they’re still the top dog and team to beat.

    Ketch, second week in a row with some of your best writing. EVERY person associated with our and their athletic departments, EVERY recruit needs to read what you’ve written and educated on this very subject sans propaganda. Hell, if he’s important enough to us I would invite Garrett to lunch for an unofficial and tell him the truth. That kid has every jackas$$ Ohio St t-shirt fan crawling all over this like flies crawling on a big pile of crap. The lack of intellectual honesty is quite mesmerizing... you almost have to suspend disbelief.
