What is the problem with Ohio?

"Jonathan Chait, a New York Magazine writer who did a whole series on Ohio, decided that the story of Circleville (Ohio) might answer the question that served as a catalyst for his reporting. 'What is the problem with this state?'" 

Ohio was settled by Hitlers.”

What are the odds that a Hitler went to Ohio State? 

Enquiring minds want to know!

Here is the NY Mag link too.

[OT] Ryan Day (co-OC/QB) declines Titans' OC position to stay at Ohio State

[OT] Ryan Day (co-OC/QB) declines Titans' OC position to stay at Ohio State

Submitted by BoFlex on January 23rd, 2018 at 10:32 AM

Per Adam Schefter who originally broke the news a couple days ago:

Ohio St. co-offensive coordinator Ryan Day is expected to remain in Columbus and not become the Tennessee Titans’ offensive coordinator, per source. Titans’ OC search continues.

— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 23, 2018

Ryan Day will also be officially promoted from co-OC to OC alongside current OC Kevin Wilson:

Day's promotion comes one day after ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Day turned down an opportunity to become the Tennessee Titans' offensive coordinator. Meyer previously confirmed that Day also turned down a potential SEC head coaching opportunity to stay at Ohio State, while it was also rumored that Chip Kelly would try to hire Day as his offensive coordinator at UCLA.

OT: [247Sports] RUMOR: Washington State DC Alex Grinch will leave to be Ohio State's 10th assistant coach

Grinch has been the defensive coordinator under Mike Leach for the last three seasons. While there, he has made a large impact on the program, turning around the defense, and having them improve from 103rd nationally to 28th in yards per play allowed, and from 117th to 47th in scoring.

Sources tell Bucknuts that multiple coaches have targeted Grinch for their staff, including Willie Taggart at Florida State, Chad Morris at Arkansas, and Jimbo Fisher at Texas A&M, at a minimum. Grinch, though, will return home, as he is originally from Columbus suburb Grove City, and played for Mount Union during his college career. He also overlapped for some time with Ohio State co-offensive coordinator and QB coach Ryan Day, while the two were at New Hampshire.

Alex Grinch will be most likely be taking the co-DC position that has been vacant since former DC Luke Fickell went to Cincinnati. Not sure why Grinch would decide to take essentially a demotion from a DC that gets full credit for a defense under Mike Leach to a co-DC that has to split credit with current DC Greg Schiano.

WSU Defensive Coordinator Alex Grinch will speak to the media during Bowl week in regards to his future status with the team, but all signs point to Columbus and that 10th assistant job with Ohio State. https://t.co/CAuJb1U6C8

Are there any rumors on who Harbaugh is targeting for Michigan's 10th assistant coach? I have heard some chatter about Harbaugh looking at Dan Enos, former Arkansas OC, CMU HC, and MSU RB/QB coach.

Indiana People vs. Ohio People

SIAP, but here's an eyebrow-raising excerpt from Bob Wojnowski of The Detroit News comparing Indiana people to those from Ohio. 

"Wolverines-Boilermakers is merely the opener in a huge one-day clash between the neighboring states of Michigan and Indiana, a friendly, respectful border rivalry. It doesn’t quite garner the attention of the Michigan-Ohio spat, largely because Indiana people are proud, simple folk, while Ohio people are dolts with horrific behavioral issues."

I might get negged to hell for this post. But I woke up early with the same pain in my chest from that loss. I feel lost. My first instinct was to come to this site to help settle my nerves. This is my Michigan family. I appreciate this blog, and I appreciate (at least a majority of) you. This loss would be even harder to stomach if I didn't have this site to run to and hide.

Good Morning.

Go Blue.

Proper Apparel for Buying Football Tickets on Gameday in Enemy Territory

Proper Apparel for Buying Football Tickets on Gameday in Enemy Territory

(sorry, having trouble with the Imgur links, working on it)

In his Ticket Watch post, as a way to secure a lower price, Seth stated "especially if you can successfully hide your Michigan fandom." 

I went to the MSU game without a ticket, and, without any worry that I would find one at a reasonable price.

However, in order to avoid verbal assaults, price increases, or outright refusal to sell, by MSU fans, I wore this green and white shirt:
I saw a guy in his 60s holding one ticket, not exactly waiving it around, but it seemed to be for sale.  This was about half an hour before kickoff.
I stopped to stand next to him, and read the price out loud $120.00.
He said, well, it was 120, now it is down to 100.
I said I will give you $80 if you want to sell right now.
He said its a deal.
I said I would tell him what I was after the money for ticket exchange.
Upon completion of the transaction,  I told him I am a Michigan fan.
He steadfastly denied that, until I rolled up the green and white shirt to reveal:
He shouted "You scammed me!  You better not be loud, you are sitting next to me!"
I stated that I was at the game last year, and would have nothing to say until the final gun went off.
Now, when hustling for tickets in Buckeye country, my experience is that hunting clothes like this work well.

Buckeye fans assume anyone decked out in hunter's orange is one of them.
Also, try to use one or two syllable words, grunts, and gestures.  
Anything more tends to confuse them.

OT: Parking at Ohio Stadium

OT: Parking at Ohio Stadium

Submitted by jman077 on October 11th, 2016 at 3:39 PM

I'm going to Columbus for the first time this year and I was wondering if there are any places to park where your car is guaranteed not to get messed with. Is this even really that big of a concern? I do drive a car that makes it very clear I am a Michigan fan (even if I took off my UofM bumper sticker I'd still have one of those little great lakes ones, a Detroit Zoo membership, Michigan plates, and its an electric blue Ford), and am a little worried based on what everyone tells me about being in Ohio. Are there any parking spots where people have had good experiences? I've thought about renting but that seems like a hassle. I'd be willing to pay a fair amount of money to know my car will be safe. Thanks!
