Ten Valentines For Ohio State Football


It’s Valentine’s Day and we are in the giving mood. Shouldn’t we be? But instead of handing out candy hearts to our significant other, we’re handing out virtual ones to Ohio State football and basketball.

Handing Out Valentines For Ohio State Football

Did you get your flowers and chocolate, or did you procrastinate, run into the store and battle the mob to pick the first card that didn’t make you cringe? All, just so you stay out of the doghouse …

It’s that time of year again — Valentine’s Day — and you know the drill. It’s time to hand out those Valentines to the apple of your eye.

We’re doing it here to at BuckeyeWire, but more of a virtual way. Here are ten Valentines that we’d like to hand out for Ohio State Football. And don’t forget to check out the same for Ohio State basketball:

  • Urban Meyer- He’s the first on the list. He’s one of the best coaches of our generation, and he’s still getting it done at an elite level. Plus he keeps giving Jim Harbaugh epic toilet swirlies, so that’s more than enough.
  • J.T. Barrett- He gets a Valentine because he reset almost every record a quarterback can, yet still had to put up with criticism from some fans (you know who you are) that have expectations sitting somewhere between the Orion’s Belt and the Big Dipper.
  • Greg Schiano- OSU’s defensive coordinator (or co- as it may be now) gets our Valentine because he stuck it to the NFL apparently to stay at Ohio State. Now if he could just stick it to that mouth in the south Clay Travis who did irreparable harm to his image by citing a classic case of hearsay.
  • Alex Grinch- Queue up the Michigan and Christmas jokes because there will be no joy in Whoville — er Harbaughville. The new co-defensive coordinator left the wacky and zany Mike Leach to come to a place that’ll put an emphasis on defense instead of awkward press conferences.
  • Nick Bosa- He is a grown man. That is all.
  • Zone 6- Thank you to all the wide-receivers for coming back and not jumping to the NFL. I can’t wait to see what the next QB at Ohio State can do with a deep and talented set of pass catchers.
  • Radio Play-By-Play Man Paul “Big-Daddy” Keels- He still has the smoothest voice in the business.
  • Brutus- How can we leave this crazy nut out? Pushups? Check. High Fives? Double-Check. Punching yourself in the head multiple times as normal behavior? Yep. Check that off too.
  • Micky Marotti- The strength and conditioning coach for OSU would be a great energy drink commercial all by himself. I’d run through a brick wall for that guy, and the Ohio State players would too. Intense is a color in his world.
  • Jim Harbaugh- I didn’t want to give a Valentine to the mean kid sitting in the corner slinging insults and trying to take lunch money, but my mom made me play nice in the sandbox and not show favoritism. Besides, he might be bitterly disappointed if I don’t give him something to fold up and put in his khakis.
