Congratulations Ohio State!

Ohio State, playing in it’s second-consecutive national championship, took a commanding 10-0 lead early in the 2008 BCS National Championship Game.

Just 1:26 into the game, Chris “Beanie” Wells pierced the massive LSU defensive line and raced down the sideline for a 65 yard TD run. On the Bayou Bengals’ first drive, the Buckeyes forced a three-and-out from Matt Flynn and the Tiger offense. Ohio State struck quickly again, going up top with a Todd Boeckman 44 yard completion to Brandon Saine. The Buckeyes would rely on South African kicker Ryan Pretorious to take that aforementioned 10-0 lead.

It was all downhill from there for the LSU Tigers…



…at least until the ensuing kickoff, where they proceeded to score 24 31 unanswered points and absolutely embarrass the Big 10 Champions by a score of 38-24.

Beware: Ohio Drivers and Buckeye Fans

Stewart Mandel, who seems to genuinely like West Virginia as a team, tackled the notion of Ohio State jumping the Mountaineers in the BCS rankings. In my opinion, he makes a great point. Also, Dan from Kalamazoo is an idiot.

Why are the Buckeyes getting no love for the NC game? I have not heard anyone talk about the possibility of OSU jumping West Virginia. Let me remind you that OSU’s sole loss was to 15th-ranked Illinois, where West Virginia lost to 25th-ranked USF.

Kirk Herbstreit Wears A Helmet To School


Yesterday, when I thought Les Miles was the dumbest person on the planet, all seemed right with the world. Now, we have another contestant: Kirk Herbstreit. Mr. Buckeye, wearing a ridiculous hat that would even make “THE Hat” blush, chimed in today on his thoughts of an Ohio State national championship berth. His opinion? Thanks, but no thanks (sidebar on right):

In my opinion, Ohio State could do more about [improving] the image people have of its program by playing a talented USC team that right now is as hot as any in the country … I promise you, if Ohio State goes into the Rose Bowl, everyone is going to be saying, ‘USC is going to kill Ohio State.’

… Ohio State will gain more respect if it plays USC in the Rose Bowl and wins that game, than if it goes and beats West Virginia and wins the national title. From an image standpoint, Ohio State would score more points going to the Rose Bowl than by going to the national championship game. If you can believe that, that’s the truth.

I think I speak for all of us when I say, “What the fuck?” Ohio State would be better served by just playing USC in the Rose Bowl than winning the National Championship? Are you insane? Do you not have a soul? No one will give two shits about the Rose Bowl a month after it’s over. The National Champion, on the other hand, gets a trip to the White House, an entire off-season’s worth of publicity, and all the SI special edition hard-bound volumes it wants.

Herbstreit, obviously, is just setting himself up for a Missouri win this Saturday. If Missouri wins, Ohio State “saves face” by going to the Rose Bowl. If they lose and tOSU goes the BCS Championship, no one will remember this column. Not even Herbstreit. He’ll deny it like it’s Watergate. As well he should, because suddenly, Les Miles looks like the sane one in the stupid hat.

THE Tits Of THE Ohio State University

Nothing gets me going more than a set of good, old fashioned tits. They look real, too. You think they’re real? Might make me feel better if they were. But I guess when it comes down to it, what does it really matter, anyway? They’re fun both real and fake.

But what would I know, I haven’t seen a real-live naked woman since 1994.

(By the way, NSFW. You know me, always looking out to keep you employed.)
