  • 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.

Thanks for sharing.  I'm pumped!  I'm going to work relentlessly for the rest of the day and make dinner tonight with a passion and vision I've never had before.

EDIT: I'm leaving work now to get a couple beers and just ordering pizza, but I'm STILL so pumped!

Fair enough Macdaddy, but we're talking about 1-2 occasional articles out of as many as a dozen in a day, not to mention plenty of posts that ARE on the topic of Buckeyes and sports exclusively.  If every third article on 11W had a political spin to it, then I'd be concerned too.  But simply don't click on the article if you don't want to read it.  Or read the article but not the comments.  Whatever you choose is best.

But I am of the opinion that 90+ percent of the content on 11W is non-political and still scratches my Buckeye/sports itches.

I agree - it took being at home in Happy Valley at night (which I admit is a raucous atmosphere) AND us basically handing them the game for them to barely beat us.  Oh and likely Urban's worst offense since he's been here at OSU?

With a revamped offense and passing game, and being at the Shoe...this game will be a 2-3 score victory.  The Franklin train gets derailed here.

EDIT: maybe Urban's second worst offense since he's been here.  Boy that offense was hard to watch in 2016 though...

Yeh, I feel like we won't take another RB unless it's Zamir White.

This is how I dream of homering, anyways...

Love the idea, but what makes anyone think we have a shot at him?  He just took the Celtics - a huge/historied NBA team - to the conference finals with the best record in the East.  All he needs is to make a couple moves and/or have LeBron retire and he's in a great spot.  I do not see this happening at all, but would love love love to be wrong. 

Oh, and I went to high school with his wife.

Agreed about the Cavs D...it's going unnoticed, it seems, that the Cavs, with some huge blowout wins, still gave up 100 points a game to an Isaiah Thomas-less Boston team.  They have to limit Curry and either Durant or Thompson like they have at times in the previous two series.
