  1.  I want to see Cardale's arm on some downfield throws, not just quick outs, screens, etc.  The kid has a cannon, and since we only got to see him run the ball last year, seeing him bombing a couple of deep routes would be nice.
  2.  I can't stress enough that health and safety is the primary focus, but I want to see HITTING.  I want to see a defense with a chip on their shoulder that's not afraid to hit hard and hit often.

*Missing an "i" in Virginia*

I went with Cincinnati, simply due to the fact that I hate hearing about our "fear" of scheduling in-state schools.  Pair that with the recent basketball loss to Dayton, and a UC buttkicking would be swell.

My tournament time allegiance goes something like:

  1.  OSU
  2.  OU, if they're in it (Wife's alma mater)
  3.  Any team that would help me win money in a player or bracket pool (minus TSUN)
  4.  Remaining Big Ten teams (minus TSUN)

I have a slight issue with the "He’s not supremely athletic" comment.  To what, exactly, does this refer?  He appears to have good speed, excellent balance, great agility, and he bench pressed more than the senior, NBA-ready Power Forwards on the day he came in as a freshman. 

Comment 27 Feb 2014

I agree.  I think CC offers a confidence and humor to his usually intelligent commentary and analysis that is lacking for Herbie and Eddie.  Herbie occasionally gets on my nerves, though he's clearly the biggest brand of these names in the business and likely earns more criticism on a daily basis than all of the other folks combined.

M Man, can you clarify?
If Lewan never said any of this, then why was it reported to the Office of Student Affairs by two of his own teammates?  Are you also implying that the other UM football players were lying, or that that portion never happened?  Or, I suppose, another option that the statements were made, but simply made to or around his football teammates and not to the victim?

I think you briefly touched on this in your Craft description, but "deceptively athletic" (along with deceptively fast/agile, etc.) = caucasian, yes?

Comment 07 Feb 2014

Got goosebumps watching that again.  One of my OSU favorite highlight videos of all time.  The 3:54 mark is the definition of TGJ.  He had just made a cut and there are two Hoosiers within a yard and a half of him, and already running at full speed and he pulls away in 2-3 strides.

Comment 06 Feb 2014

Agree with Hovenaut that having Hubbard listed as a 3* is ridiculous (not for 11W, for whichever ranking site didn't do their homework).  Voted for Nuernberger, as I think he makes an immediate impact this year and leaves OSU in the top 4 of career scoring leaders....not setting the bar high, am I?

Comment 30 Jan 2014

I disagree on the leadership part, unless you're equating leadership to scoring ability.  To me, Craft and Smith, among others, appears to be excellent leaders in the way they carry themselves and hustle. They're everything you'd want in players or teammates. 

However, leadership doesn't put the ball in the hoop.  Right now, we have a big man who plays about 6 inches shorter than his height and can't catch, lots of solid defenders and athletes who are mediocre shooters at best, and no true perimeter threat.
