Our Buckeye Bracket Challenge winner sent us this reflection as a part of his “major award”.
Here’s a pic of my step dad and I at one of the spring games before he got sick.
This was his only Buckeye game, but he was really excited that day knowing it was cold and a little rainy. He never let it let him down and enjoy every bit of it.
I’ve wanted to take him to a game but the only game I went too was the Indiana game when Braxton was a freshman. Dad was sick at the time and couldn’t go. I even got tickets to go to a Browns game last year and he was too sick to go. Now when I go to another game sometime, I know he will be there with me at his first game in spirit. Love ya dad… you’ll be missed but never forgotten!
As a boy I always loved playing sports and it was something I had a deep passion for. Growing up my step dad had a big influence in my life, and I got into sports because I got into watching him playing softball & basketball.
My step dad use to coach baseball when I was younger. He was one heck of a coach who knew his stuff and turned me into a pretty good player. In junior high, when he stopped coaching, then when I stopped playing,when I stopped playing baseball. I didn’t want to play for anyone other then my step dad.
I also grew up watching and liking the Ohio State Buckeyes. It was something My step dad and I had in common- always major Buckeye fans.Every time an Ohio State game was on, Mark and I was always in front of the tv rooting and yelling together. So getting involved with the Buckeyes will always be a memory my step dad and I had- I like to attend Buckeye Autograph sessions as much as I can and it’s become a hobby of mine to get Buckeye autographs.

A great game on Monday night led to a great result- Michigan didn’t win. I’m sure that was as exciting for you as it was for Rick Pitino, right?
Congratulations to the Louisville Cardinals on their season, and to Columbus’ Trey Burke on his college career. Thanks, too, for deciding to go pro so I can actually enjoy your talent without being sick to my stomach.
Closer to home, the BBC Bracket Challenge has a winner… artist extraordinaire, Kevin Dearth, whos “RIP Homer” entry won by one point over two other challengers. The neat thing about this entry- it’s named in honor of his step father, a Louisville fan who passed away earlier this year.
Kevin wins the prize package- a shirt from The Buckeye Room, an autographed copy of Maurice Clarett’s new book, some swag from our friend Mekka Don, and the chance to grace the pages of tBBC with a guest post.
For staff bragging rights, The Wonder From Down Under edged out yours truly by one point as well- I knew Charles had some of that Australian mojo going for him.
Thanks for participating in this year’s event… Go Bucks!
Just a quick new design from our friend Kevin Dearth to celebrate yesterday’s big win:
It’s always great to get an email from our friend Kevin Dearth- you never know how he’s going to visualize the state of Buckeye sports.
Here’s his take on this season’s schedule… definitely personifies the “attack!” mentality that Coach Meyer has brought to the team.
After last night’s big win, most Buckeye fans spend all night celebrating with friends and family. Luckily for us, though, our friend Kevin Dearth spent time creating this great March Madness wallpaper for your enjoyment:
Also- don’t forget that The Buckeye Room has a March Madness special so you can get ready for the finals- when you order online, just use MADNESS2012 as the coupon code when you check out for a 20% discount.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard from our friend Kevin, but he’s back with a vengeance with today’s shootyhoops duo for your laptop and tablet. Although- it might not be good to share these with others- you don’t want them swooning and crashing into your computer.
It’s been a while since we’ve given you something new from our friend Kevin, but the recent announcement of Ohio State’s new head coach has been inspirational.
So, this can either be an early Christmas present for your laptop, or something to put on the computers of all the TTUN fans in your life- that never gets old.
Our friend Kevin Dearth sends us this wallpaper as we get ready for the 2011-12 season to kick off.
Great work as always, Kev!!
