Some of JT's record numbers made me curious about league marks.  At 33 pass TDs, he's now tied with Russell Wilson for 2nd most in a season.  With at least three games remaining, he's within reach of Drew Bree's 39 from 1998.  It's easy to attribute some of the gaudy numbers to the system, but Brees probably averaged close to 50 pass attempts/game for those Purdue teams.

There may be no state pride in Illinois but Chicagoans love their city.  I've seen more Chicago flag tattoos living here than any Ohio related ones during the first 22 years of my life spent in the Buckeye state.

In 2012-13, the Flyers' average attendance was 12,438 (26th in Division I).  UD Arena holds 13,435 = 92.5% full.

In 2011–12, Ohio State averaged 16,511 (8th in Division I).  Value City holds 18,809 = 87.7% full.

UD has been in the top 30 for attendance the past 17 years straight and out of the top 35 only once since 1969, the year UD Arena was opened.  Flyer fans are hardly bandwagon and will continue to support their mediocre teams in the future.  If you haven't seen a game at UD Arena, you should check it out.  I'd argue it's better than the Schott

This is the same Iowa team that last week only squeaked out 23yds rushing and 264 total yds and 13 first downs against MSU.  They have matched that in the first half against our Swiss cheese defense.

I was at the game tonight and it seemed like he did whatever he wanted. Most kicks were end over end with backspin. His last punt was a spiral and pinned them inside the ten on their last drive. That kid puts it wherever he wants it. Player of the game IMO. I'm looking forward to seeing him really uncork one, if that opportunity ever comes.

I had always wondered myself so I looked and finally found it.  It's from an Australian morning show.  The male anchor, Karl Stefanovic, is pretty funny and says lots of borderline inappropriate things on air.  He's like a real life Ron Burgandy - including being still drunk from a night of partying in a few of the videos.  I just wasted enjoyed half an hour of youtube clips.  The one that the gif is lifted from isn't nearly as funny as most of the other stuff, but here's the link.  It's all the way at the end of the video:

Paul Newman is from Ohio.  Thought it might've been him.

Comment 18 Jul 2013

I couldn't care less about what he does in the off season either. Clearly, the responsible thing to do would be to stay clean and work on improving his game (the Mannings might be able to help him with that...). But frankly, if he performs well this season no one will remember all this nonsense. If he doesn't, it'll be talked about in the media ad nauseum. It's his life. If he wants to make bad decisions and jeopardize millions of dollars, so be it.

Nice one.  I actually did live near there a few years ago - in Uptown, just south of Montrose.  Check out the Bar on Buena if you're ever in the neighborhood.

Comment 27 Jun 2013

Gaslight is my favorite of all the ones I've been too.  Never been to O'Donovan's but I've driven by it plenty.  The patio looks great, aside from being situated right on busy Irving Park.  If you think McGee's is undergrad-ish, don't ever consider going to Mickey's on Clark in LP.  Another negative of Mickey's is close proximity to Duffy's, probably the worst bar in Chicago (TTUN pissing hole).  

Comment 27 Jun 2013

I'm closer to Sheffield and Addison.  I've been to Vaughn's a couple times but never for a game.  Maybe I'll check it out this season, although I'm planning on attending at least three games (including this one against NU).  There are a ridiculous number of Buckeye bars in Chicago - you could easily go to a different one for every game.
