One Fan’s View: 8-Man Should Become Reality in Ohio

By GARRETT SEARIGHT I love football Friday nights in Limaland. I really, honestly, truly do. The entire community supporting the team. The crisp fall air. The band in the stands. The lights. The sound. I love it. I would love More

One Fan’s View: No Conspiracy With OHSAA Football Divisions

By GARRETT SEARIGHT I like conspiracy theories. I don’t believe many, but I love to read about what people believe, why they believe it, and finding even a little bit of truth in the ideas people come up with. What More

One Fan's View: When Imagination Runs Wild

By GARRETT SEARIGHT It’s crazy how things turn out sometimes. Friday night, I had MC duties for the weekly Rally in the Square concert series in downtown Lima. Between sets of the Naked Karate Girls (who are neither naked nor More

One Fan's View: Matta's Replacement Must Be Home Run

By GARRETT SEARIGHT I’m not the biggest Gene Smith fan in the world. Ohio State’s Athletic Director severely mishandled “tattoogate”. He severely mishandled Luke Fickell’s one season as head coach (don’t tell me he was the “interim”. Ohio State never More

One Fan's View: The Truth About Multi-Sport Athletes

One Fan's View: I Wish I Would Have Listened Sooner…

One Fan's View: ESPN Layoffs Bring Back Sobering Memories

By GARRETT SEARIGHT Yesterday, ESPN laid off nearly 100 on-air reporters, anchors, analysts, and writers. For those, like me, who don’t like ESPN, it was fun to watch the self-proclaimed “worldwide leader in sports” admit that things weren’t going so More

One Fan's View: How to Fix Championship Week

By GARRETT SEARIGHT “Championship Week”, as it’s been dubbed by ESPN, is the equivalent to a 7-year-old’s birthday party. If you want everyone to like you, you gotta go, but you realize it’s really dumb and pointless. The Ivy League More

One Fan's View: 10 Years Later

By GARRETT SEARIGHT There are certain days in your life you’ll always remember where you were when you heard breaking news. I was sitting in my living room when my dad told me our Grandma had passed away. I was More

One Fan's View: Time For A Change

By GARRETT SEARIGHT No one wants to see Thad Matta fired. The man took Ohio State men’s basketball back to heights it hadn’t seen since the early 60’s. He’s made two trips to the Final Four, something many great coaches More
