    Sat in the OSU section for the Fiesta Bowl in 08. The olds next to me were nice folks, but just about everyone else was sloshed and cursed at my wife and I, especially when Quan scored for the win. No desire to go where those people consider their turf.

    @I Hear Voices, the mob is coming for you. Hope you have a solid defense of your douchey question.

    Sounds like I need to make a trip to Columbus with an airbrushed Team Courtney shirt.

    Spent a few weeks in columbus after Tressel was fired-resigned. it felt like i imagine a normal weekend in south chicago. Cesspool is an understatement.

    Even tOSU could not look the other way when Woody Hayes assaulted an opposing player on national TV. Kinda a gimmee.

    Great work this week, Ketch.your top of page was spot on, even your tone.

    That Johnson/Meyer question is actually surprisingly tricky to predict.

    Cruise is a hell of an actor. Probably the top box office actor ever. His long involvement (and bankrolling of) with Scientology probably hurts his legacy a bit.

    The consistent stories of those who went to that game in Columbus (i have one also) tells you the level of shlthole it is. I’ve always told people the worst fan base I’ve ever been around is OSU and I’ve been to a lot of away games. No Aggie, ou, Nebraska, etc etc game comes close.

    Great stuff on Meyer Ketch. What this reminds me of is Art Briles except that Meyer is worse. What is more disgusting is the officials at both schools are more worried about losing money than they are helping someone who has been beaten up, kicked and no telling what else. Meyer has exhibited his true personality in the past with Florida and he and Briles need to be put in a space ship and launched into space. I would expect no less of the fans of Ohio State because they have all exhibited all of the same character as the Baylor people. Your recap of how you were treated after the Texas-OSU game says it all.
    Thanks for the good stuff.

    When I was a high school senior, my top 2 college choices were Ohio State and Texas. Then I visited the campus of both schools. So glad I made the right decision.

    Yeah. Would love for whoever asked that question to have the balls to admit it was them.

    After tOSU game we had beer bottles thrown at us while being verbally abused. The police told us to head back to our hotel as it wasn’t safe. Good grief.

    Despite many people hating the film, I thought his performance in Vanilla Sky was top 10 material.

    If you read his explanation, it makes some sense, but he admitted that he struggled with the wording. That's how I took it anyway.

    Agree with the sentiment, but not sure why you put Nebraska in there...notoriously great fans to visitors. They bought us beers in the bar, both before AND after the 2006 game in Lincoln.

    He probably put Nebraska in there because the self-proclaimed "best fans in America" got tired of losing to Texas and were not so hospitable the last couple of games up there. I witnessed that.

    Similiar experience here, except we were staying at a house on Lane Ave (Frat Row). The walk back was scary, we got verbally and physically assaulted (luckily the physical stuff wasn't all that bad, just some shoving). The verbal stuff (most of our group were people of color) was outrageous. Took every amount of restraint to remember that we were in the middle of enemy territory and we just needed to get to safety and out of view.

    We went out the night before, bunch of husky chicks inhaling cheese sausages from carts in front of the bars, and it wasn't even late yet. It was disgusting to look at. As if you needed more reasons to never go there.

    Cops will not help you. Their "civil duty" was just to tell us "good luck" and "this is how it is."
