I lived in the Milwaukee area for 30 years, and all we ever heard about was how great a city Chicago was. If that was true, why was every other license plate on weekends in southeastern Wisconsin a F.I.B. The best part of moving from Wisconsin was never having to drive through Chicago again. If you love bread pizzas, sitting in traffic, and obnoxious Cub and Da Bears fans, Chicago is your mecca.

I think Green Bay would be a great place for Cardale. No pressure because Rogers has several good years left, and Green Bay is the closest thing to a college atmosphere in the NFL. I think he'd flourish in a small town environment. No place loves and respects and protects their players like Green Bay fans.

Urban Meyer's program seems to be a great segue into real life for these kids. Honest self evaluation, honest feedback, success based on performance, and aggressive competition all are prescriptions for success in the real world. Based on recent observations, it's too bad the rest of the kids in college don't appear to be getting this kind of preparation for life.

Every group always thinks they have things worse than everyone else, irrespective of their situation. It's human nature. Of course the NCAA and the schools profit off he athletes, and the athletes trade their services for a period off time for a valuable education and a foot in the door for much greater things in the NFL. It's the way the real world works. The system has it's faults but seems fairly stable. We are the beneficiaries because we have the greatest two spectator sports in the world to enjoy, College and Pro football. I don't lose any sleep over which one happens to be complaining at the moment. Both come out in the end with pretty sweet deals.

_ichigans best players have more than not, always come from Ohio. A bunch of good, pissed off football players with a chip on their shoulders because OSU didn't offer, or because they weren't recruited by OSU as vigorously as they though they should have been, is how scum is going to get back in the game. Harbaugh is bat_hit crazy, but he is not stupid. A bunch of misguided OSU fans want TTUN competitive again. Be careful what you ask for.

Been down here winters for three years now.  Home to Dublin in the summer  / fall. It's incredible that these two states really are parts of the same country. 

Comment 05 Mar 2016

Why not put a shadow on Valentine and take him out of the game? He seems to be able to do what ever he wants.

Snorkeling trip to Molokini Crater (Maui) is well worth the time. Ditto helicopter ride on Kauai.

Didn't know the story about William White and didn't know he studied engineering at OSU. I got my BSME in '73 and can say it's amazing that someone can devote the time and effort required to develop NFL level skills and still have enough time and drive to get an engineering degree too. He is a real role model and deserves congratulations.

I am really tired of all the people that hope the Walverines are "relavent" again.  They will be the first to jump ship when the scumbags finally do beat the Bucks. As distasteful as that sounds it will happen again someday.  I gotta believe most of them were not around or can't remember how miserable that feels when it happens more than once a generation. Thinking OSU needs them to be credible to make us look better is hogwash. We compete with the best in the country now. 2014 season proves it.

2015 couldn't have been much fun for the Buckeyes. It wasn't much fun to watch (till the last two games).  Doing something once, knowing you have the talent, and not being able to do it again one of the most frustrating things in life. But doing something no one else thinks you can do is one if the most satisfying and fun things possible. 2014 was one of those years. I think 2016 can be another. And it will be fun.

I assume Bosa still had to go to class occasionally. I wonder if his grades improved during his time of solitude? Maybe he's got something there.

Comment 14 Jan 2016

I wish there had been that kind of speech at the halftime of the MSU game. Likely Alabama wouldn't be champs for the 88th (their count) time. I know, I know, get over it.

Comment 12 Jan 2016

The only spot that matters is the first. Second is just the first of the losers. The unpleasant, smelly view looking up the ladder is the same for everyone except the guy on the top rung. Anyone satisfied with second will never be first.  I hope the 2016 team  remembers the view.
