  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Braxton Miller, but other Buckeyes are fast approaching..

Realizing my allotted time waned and still reeling from his potshot against people that live in their mother's basements, I forged ahead with a question I long wondered.

This is pure gold, and worth the read all by itself.  Great job just doing you, DJ!

That aside, this was an interesting read.  In the end it's about more exposure, and that makes total sense.  I liked Paul's honest responses that - hey, this is a college football show, we get callers from all over, so let's get the show more exposure all over. 

I also respect a man that can make Nick Saban squirm, cuss, and then later apologize.

Right on, Squirrel.  As RBurgundy also hinted at right above, I think the focus should be on later games in the season that matter more.  I'll try some of these streaming apps and such and see how they work as practice/preparation for the real deal later on.  Thanks to everyone for entertaining my dilemma.

LMAO Earle - Yeh BuckeyeAirGuard, let's see how close you are in proximity so I can really imagine you in a bar with a beer and a smile, and me surrounded by screaming parents.

BAG78 - hotel is in Fishers, IN and the tourney is in Westfield, IN which seems to be just north of Indianapolis.  Enjoy the game!

Excellent stuff, 3M.  Thanks!

1. I've been burned on the DVR time before.  On a soccer game, ironically.  The UEFA Championship game went into penalty kicks and I missed it.

2. Never thought of the notifications thing.  Excellent.

3. Hopefully no one dies.

4. I usually ignore most people anyway.

5. Hopefully the Bucks roll and there are no lulls, only highlights.

6. B-dubs sounds good.  And I used to wait tables and bartend - even during Buckeye games, so I'm hip to the "I just took up half your section for your entire shift" thing.  Surprisingly lots of people don't, so tip of the cap to you.

LMAO Earle.  I may not know the actual score, but I am almost certain to have a feel for how the game went by the #firecoach____ threads.  Fire Fickel?  Defense gave up some points.  Fire Beck?  Offense sputtered.

Haha, nice.  Couldn't the large amount of effort it would take to "run" such a league also chew up a lot of my CFB time?

She's pretty good.  I don't know about B1G school scholarship good yet, but she's pretty decent at age 10.

I don't think he deserves it for last year.  Although I'm happy with a one loss season and a Fiesta Bowl victory, with the talent we had last year seems like an underachieving year.  Plus the mishandled QB-geddon.  For that matter, losing the two biggest games of 2013 (B1G championship and Orange Bowl) doesn't necessarily translate to a COY award for me. 

He's the best coach in the B1G by far, though.

Don't downvote this!  Good feedback, even if just opinions, from a rival fan.  Thanks for the honest post Blu.

Guys, this line by DJ:

Maybe the Browns could acquire Bosa in next year's draft, but he'll probably be gone by pick No. 32.

is a subtle reference to the Browns winning the Super Bowl, which DJ has "predicted" many times now, with RGIII and Pryor being the spark that gets them there.  I had to double take at first and wonder why pick 32 would relate to the Browns, and then realized where DJ was going with this.

If this was already obvious to y'all, forgive me, but seeing ToTheHouse break down actual pick probabilities, I'd thought I'd point it out just in case because it's too good to miss.
