104.9 The River is an FM radio station in Columbus that plays contemporary Christian music. It is focused on being uplifting, encouraging, and family friendly. I like the station, and I appreciate what they do.

With all of that being said, I really, really wish they would stop playing Christmas music.

Urban Meyer Press Conference: Notes and Thoughts


“Those players didn’t choose me. I chose them,” it was towards the end of Urban Meyer’s introductory press conference as the 24th head football coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes. A profound vote of confidence for this team and where he thinks they could go.

It was a sentiment that was reiterated by Meyer several times during his press conference. An expectation to bring this team back to prominence.

Ohio State – Michigan: Notes and Thoughts

Michigan fans should be proud that the maize and blue won this afternoon, but Ohio State took this game to the wire. I think the way Ohio State battled throughout today’s game is commendable. It was a good, hard fought football game.

At times during today’s game, Michigan seemed on the verge of pulling ahead and taking total control of this game. At other points, the two offenses slugged it out like two heavyweight boxers.

Michigan had scored. I thought that was all she wrote, as it was late in the fourth quarter, and the Wolverines had just capped off an impressive drive. But the call would end up being reversed. The Michigan runner just shy of the goal line.

I love Ohio State; BUT I Think It’s Michigan’s Year To End Streak

Michigan fans are chomping at the bit for tomorrow’s home game against Ohio State. The time seems right for Michigan to finally take the archival Buckeyes down for the first time since 2003.

2003! Facebook didn’t exist yet and George W. Bush was still in his first term as president.
