Tennessee??? Their athletics are mediocre, have no cultural connection to any of the current B1G schools, and do not meet CIC academic standards. I would take Kentucky before Tennessee, at least their basketball team competes for titles.

Given that the allegations are confirmed by the police, I'll stand with my assertion.

I got to chance to go up to Baltimore last February to see the good guys play Hopkins in lax. OSU lost 10-9 in 3 OT's but it was a fantastic game in a phenomenal environment. B1G lax is gonna be awesome!

Comment 17 Sep 2014

The B1G needed a sixth team to form a men's lax conference and Northwestern does not have a men's team, so JHU was a standout choice. Outside the ACC, I think the B1G can be one of the best lax conferences right from the get-go.

B1G Men's Lax: Ohio State, Penn State, M!chigan, Maryland, Rutgers, and Johns Hopkins.
B1G Women's Lax: Ohio State, Penn State, M!chigan, Maryland, Rutgers, and Northwestern.

You have a very interesting and unique idea, in theory I like it a lot. Just two points I would like to bring up.

1. The MAC fanbases are a lot smaller, so if they move up to the B1G, the conference (B1G) may lose TV revenue.
2. The B1G is just as much about academics (research dollars) as it is about athletics. No MAC school outside MIami is academically competitive with the B1G universities.

The one thing I do know: Cleveland could move their training game into the shadow of the Gates of Hell, and Browns fans would be tailgating in the parking lot at dawn.  

I don't think the Browns are looking do training camp in Ann Arbor.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

I wouldn't be that optimistic but even if they are 4-4 going into the Thursday night game I will be pleased. I cannot cite the source but I read somewhere that after their first three games the Browns have the easiest schedule in the league based off last years win percentages.

Comment 14 Sep 2014

Gordon returning won't help Hoyer's (or Manziel's) accuracy issues but it will help open up the offense in general. Right now defenses can key on Cameron and Hawkins and not worry about much else.

Comment 14 Sep 2014

Now that I have had time to think about it, the "new" Browns first win after coming back into league in 1999 was against the Saints in New Orleans. Anyone remember Tim Couch's Hail Mary?

Comment 14 Sep 2014

Once I come down off my post-win high I'll probably go back to being cautiously optimistic. For now, I'll settle for sounding insane.

Comment 14 Sep 2014

740: The passing game is the one thing that keeps me from saying the Browns are a playoff contender. That may change when Josh Gordon gets back but for now we are a run-first team.

Comment 14 Sep 2014

I don't remember off the top of my head. I think she also took an OkST student to an adult awards ceremony after he made a sign for her on College Gameday.

Comment 14 Sep 2014

The Browns fan in me wants to go with your 4-12 prediction but if the past 6 quarters are any indication, we may be a lot better than that!

Comment 14 Sep 2014

This too shall pass. I'm a Browns fan and the pursuit of "next year" keeps me going, haha.
