Great half and even better to see Kyrie back on the court. Go Cavs!
What an incredible performance by Lebron?! I love how the Cavs just continue to battle and find different ways to win. In an ideal world, the Cavs win Tuesday night and get some much needed R & R prior to the Finals. Go Cavs!
As a life-long educator myself, I agree with your words on the 'Grit' Ted Talk and how that information is received by students today. Things are just too easy for them and most have no idea what it is like, or means, to struggle.
That's also why this is such an exciting time in OSU football, IMO. The theme for the coming year, The Grind, speaks to the challenges that must be overcome to achieve your goals. The National Championship won by our Buckeyes and what the Cavs are going through right now are perfect examples of what can be accomplished by just staying the course. Go Bucks! Go Cavs!
SL...I agree completely and am very excited about not only the Cavs winning in 4 but also Houston rallying to make a series of it out west. The Cavs continue to be incredibly resourceful in their drive to the title, just as our Buckeyes this fall. Provided there are no additional injury issues for Cleveland, I really like the Cavs chances of winning a championship. Go Cavs!
Lebron James is an amazing leader and the Cavs have really rallied around him. MUCH like another one of our favorite teams this year, the Cavs have fully embraced the mantra of 'next man up.' The Cavs get contributions from different players seemingly every game and are winning all effort areas..
The good news is that with Kyrie out, the Cavs are in great position to get to the Finals. Stealing some R & R for Kyrie to be a factor in the next series and could be just what the Cavs need to become NBA Champions! Go Cavs!.
Thanks for the reply. Yes, the 'next man up' mantra lives on in the great state of Ohio! Just like our Buckeyes, I am very proud of the effort of these Cavs. Their respective leaders, King James & King Jones have and continue to represent NE and all of Ohio in the best of ways. Go Cavs! Go Bucks!
Great win. The Cavs found yet another way to win tonight but the common theme in the playoffs has been grit and toughness. A win Friday night would be ideal. Go Cavs!
Videos like this usually don't do much for me. I liked this one because it was creative. I'll add that knowing almost nothing about Josh Imatorbhebhe prior to watching this, he is a very impressive and well-spoken young man. Best wishes to him at USC. Go Bucks!
The area surrounding I-95 is what is known as the 'Corridor of Shame' and is defined by poor communities and schools that are in disrepair. Once off I-95 at exit 8, the last 30-35 minutes into Hilton Head are actually are far from poor, with the Bluffton area featuring several of the more elite plantations in Beaufort County. Go Bucks!
It's THE duty of every great Buckeye to at least stop at Mangiamo's to 'unload' in the urinal or toilet if they are in Hilton Head. Go Bucks!.
Tremendous win tonight by the Cavs. I love how hard they are competing on both ends. Many contributed again tonight but Kyree and Lebron were both special.
I'd love to see this end Thursday night in Chicago and possibly get an extra day or two for some much needed R & R for the core group. Go Cavs! .
If that graduation address had been given by just about anyone else I may not have listened. I did because of my great respect for Coach Tressel and his great love for OSU and the great state of Ohio. Go Bucks!
Lebron had 27 points on 8 for 25 shooting and 7 TO's. That's hardly a great game. I loved his effort but have seen him play much better. IMO, he was not at or near his best tonight. Go Bucks!
It's always difficult to win when your two best players are not at their best, let alone on the road. Kyrie and Lebron need to be much better in game 4. Go Bucks!
Like many, I am a huge Mike Conley fan. He is very under-appreciated by the greater basketball world due to his selfless play and personality but plays on a very good team.
If Mike can play without further injury, this will not be an easy series for GS. The contrast in styles makes for an intriguing match-up and I enjoy watching each team try to impose their style on the other.
I'm also sure many of you know this but wanted to mention that Mike sponsored a ticket lottery for Memphis fans the game after he was injured in game 3 of the Portland series. He paid for 500 tickets to be given away as a sign of appreciation after his injury for Grizzlies for game 5. Mike is a tremendous ambassador for Memphis and OSU. Go Bucks!
Best wishes to Brendan Ferns regardless of where he ends up. I always hate seeing Ohio kids go elsewhere. It happens and I fully trust in this coaching staff that they will find an equally quality young man who does see OSU as the perfect place to be. Go Bucks!
Harbaugh's offer to a 13 year old is disgraceful in and of itself and just another prime example of the utter hypocrisy those clowns up north spew about 'leaders and best.' What a joke!
Thank goodness for 11W and the best crew covering Buckeye sports. Go Bucks!
Thank you for a great read Ramzy! While recruiting services can measure a young man's physical attributes and recruiting services can anoint young men as can't miss prospects, none have the ability to measure a recruit like Curtis Grant's spirit and heart. His selflessness will truly be missed in the locker room and in the huddle when times are tough.
I always rooted for CG and am thrilled he was able to finish like the champion he is! Go Bucks!
They say that 'imitation is the purest form of flattery.' While I applaud the effort to make this video, the game trailers we got toward the end of the season vs TTUN, Wisconsin, Alabama, and Oregon were fantastic and just better, IMO. It's great to be a Buckeye. Go Bucks!.
For this 'older' Buckeye, there is no doubt which game will be the toughest game this year, the following year, or for the foreseeable future...'The Game' vs TTUN. While I do expect MSU to be good this fall and am a fan of their coaching staff, MSU isn't our rival nor do they evoke the 'hate' that TTUN does for me.
While it isn't a popular thought, I see TTUN being good this year. They won't ask much of their QB's and will rely on their O line and stable of backs to control games. TTUN should be solid on D, too.
Harbaugh's hire was a home run for TTUN. Harbaugh knows why he was hired and will bring a confidence to 'The Game' that no TTUN coach has since Bo, My hunch is that Harbaugh 'hates' OSU as badly as many older Buckeye fans hate TTUN. That kind of passion, where losing to the enemy is a sickening, distasteful, experience, should be on full display this fall.
For some fun reading, check out the link at the bottom of this post. This is how some of us were raised to see TTUN and 'The Game.' The moment TTUN hired Harbaugh, it was game on. *^%$ TTUN! Go Bucks!
I hope this works. I am a bit of a tech caveman.
Four great young Americans there if I must say so myself. Go Bucks!
If I may add to your excellent post, I'd say that:
1. America was so much different from a cultural standpoint. How 'success' or a 'legend' was defined then and now are worlds apart.
2. For you youngsters, games were rarely seen on TV unless they were of a certain magnitude. I remember listening fondly to many Buckeye games on the radio as a child because games were not televised. In Coach Bo's case, the 'legend' is indisputable in that regard.
IMO, Bo Schembechler was a great American. I hated him as the leader of TTUN but do believe in his value structure and what he stood for almost completely. Go Bucks!
As Coach Hayes said years ago, "You win with people." Go Bucks!
BOOM! It's great to be a Buckeye! Go Bucks!
What an incredible week/weekend it has been for the Buckeyes?! Barrow seems to be a great fit on the 'D' line. The ONLY down side to all the good news is that Sept 7th is a long way off! Go Bucks!
