Still patiently awaiting Troy Smith's day of reckoning with the NFL. He's my sleeper pick in this year's NFL draft.

Ummm ... Troy was drafted in the fifth round in 2007 by the Ravens.

Comment 11 Apr 2014

I was a bit undersized in high school (5'4", 115 lbs. as a Sr.). As a result, I had to work my tail off to even be competitive by my senior year.

Even with my small stature, I ran track, cross country, and was on the swim team. During my senior swim season, I managed to come from 2+ body lengths down at the last turn to win the 100 yd. breastsroke at the conference meet. PR'ed by 2 seconds, and reeled-in/out-touched the defending conference champion. Ended up with the 3rd or 4th fastest time in the event in my high school's history. (30+ years of swimming records to that point).

Even got a date because of it at the conclusion of the meet!

Comment 10 Apr 2014

Sure he can boot 70+ yd. kickoffs out of the endzone, but can he run a 4.5 40 like our punter???

That said, he's got plenty of leg. Hope he can get the consistency and accuracy down to be a real threat.

Comment 24 Mar 2014

That is definitely an epic tattoo fail.

Here's a question ... why the need to get it in a foriegn language? Why not do it in English?

#Salty. Too funny!

Wonder if they tracked him down by his seat/ticket order or credit card?

Comment 13 Mar 2014

I agree with your premise, but I think MSM or EKU will be higher than 16's. I would guess MSM will be a 13 or 14 ...

Comment 13 Mar 2014

It can/will eventually happen, but not without some help IMHO.

Here's one plausible scenario ...

A couple of high profile players on the #1 seed team (after the brackets are decided) are suspended or dismissed for some sort of violation, leaving that particular team vulnerable. The media hype up this matchup with a "hot" 15-15 team from a small/mid-major that played its way into the field of 64, and start to promote the game as a possible upset watch. At a neutral site (or even across the country for the lowest #1), the crowd is now pro-underdog. The #1 seed falters with the backups, and the #16 continues its hot run, pulling off the upset.

Just sayin ... it's possible.  Not likely, but possible.

Update ... I now see the font/style changes on IE10 at home.

Since it was a level 3 snow emergency today (in Toledo), I'll have to wait until tomorrow to check my work browser.

Comment 12 Mar 2014

I'm still in the camp that the 4th pick is Watkins.

Use the other first rounder or a second/third and get Murray and/or McCarron. Have a rookie QB competition.

Oh, and don't forget to grab Carlos Hyde somewhere along the way ...

Chip Kelly would probably not want to come back as a Coordinator, especially after having been a HC at both the FBS and NFL levels.

On Edit - MH apparently types 29 seconds faster than I do ... ;)

While I am saddened by this news, and I hope Vonn heals quickly, it's time to repeat the Mantra: Next. Man. Up.

We have more talent at the S position this year than we did last year. Let's see who else is willing and able to step up and be the man (for the time being at least).
