Turns out Aaron Craft misses a very high percentage of the shots he DOES take, too.

In the exodus, you can see what appears to be that ass-hat "Buck-I Guy" dude. As someone who lives in Columbus, I can honestly tell you there's not a more annoying representation of Buckeye Fan than this clown. My wife works in public schools with Autistic children, and this DB showed up at a rally they were having at the state house in full garb to get his picture taken and get on the news.
 I should add, lest anyone think I am potentially downplaying an altruistic gesture by said Buck-I Guy, that my wife is an OSU alum/fan, and even she was annoyed that he showed up at the rally.

Any MGoColumbus-ites in the house? Stuck in Columbus, Ohio, and as thrilling as watching the game by myself on my couch would be I'm curious to see if there are any of y'alls out here in The Land of Free Cars and Tattoos and, if so, where you might be out watching the game...

Which brings up an interesting hypothetical: Tressel could stay in the Columbus area and still be a public figure. People *LOVE* him that much, here.
If he continues being a charitable person even now when he's no longer in that position of prestige, that would go a long way...
|3 years 12 weeks ago||My perception is that people||
My perception is that people aren't saying that JT's charity work somehow makes him better than anyone else; it seems as though it's one-part coping mechanism for Buckeye fans... a way of convincing themselves that they're carbon-neutral because Tressel makes up for the bad by having done so much good. It also seems as if it's one-part justification for deluding themselves into thinking that his ouster is due to one error in judgment as opposed to a systematic pattern of misbehavior.
|3 years 12 weeks ago||As a Columbus resident...||
I see this issue for OSU fans as the dichotomy of wanting the saint in the community and the warrior on the sidelines, and having them be the same guy. Tressel brought them everything they wanted on the field, and they wanted to believe that he was able to do it with the class not existent in an Urban Meyer or Nick Saban.
These revelations have shattered that worldview, so they're clinging to everything they can to believe that they still had the best of both worlds, and it will never be this good again.
That, and it's also become much more convenient to wrap this whole thing up and lay it at Pryor's feet, providing it doesn't get stuck under the gas pedal of his newest car.

I, too, live some semblance of this day twice every fall: once when UM is on bye, and once when my Cleveland Browns are on bye. Thankfully, the two days somehow lessen the impact of the full effect. So, my additions for my own Fear/Paranoia Level:
+1 Wife is Die-Hard Buckeyes Fan, and I Had to Sit Through the First Half of OSU/Purdue
-5 Michigan could put up 80 points on Purdue
+1 Browns Bye Week is Next Week
-1 Taking a Nice Trip to DC Next Weekend, Uh Oh...
+20 No Way I'll Get to See UM/PSU
Crap. Now I feel even worse.
|3 years 47 weeks ago||FWIW||
Living in Columbus as I do, I have a few friends who are of the Buckeye Fan persuasion who aren't total dicks (it's shocking, really, though in fairness I'm married to one so she kinda has to be nice to me). One of them claims that losing Moeller will really hurt them against UM because he's their best true "QB spy".

is how his game will translate from playing on what looks to be a Tecmo Bowl field (12 yards wide, 600 yards long) to a standard field.
