Whether you care about soccer or not I disagree with your statement about the US should not interject itself in this.  Violations of US law were committed on US soil. The alleged criminals should be put through the prosecution process. 

Comment 29 May 2015

Perhaps Braxton hasn't 'ended the speculation' because he's only ~90% sure he'll be back. If he's just leaning or even very strongly leaning to coming back he's better off not saying anything.

That's a neat tidbit.  Wouldn't mind adding that feather to our cap even if it's not remotely comparable to the end of season prize. 

Comment 12 May 2015

Deflategate has been going on for years and the Patriots got a huge advantage due to it. Over the past 5 years the Patriots have had the lowest fumble rate in the NFL or as the author puts it "the Patriots fumble rate has been absurdly small". The link between carrying a deflated ball and fumbling less does not appear to be coincidental.

Hyde might be a 1100 yard back this season, but Hill is already an 1100+ yard back.  Not only did Hill have 3x the production of Hyde, but he had 1.1 more yards per carry. 

I do think Hyde could get to 1100 yards, but Hill will likely exceed that this coming year.  Last year he didn't become the lead back until Benard's injury midway through the year. 

Comment 12 May 2015

Missouri lost to Indiana just like we lost to Va Tech. Doesn't mean we are a below average ACC team.  

Mizzu kicked Minny's a$$ in the bowl game and the year before they beat an Ok State team that went into the game at 11-2. 

Comment 09 May 2015

Adding Rutgers & Maryland make Ohio State field  a better football team.  We are now consistently recruiting well in New Jersey/ Maryland and the Atlantic Coast. Missouri was not an option.  It was either Missouri or Nebraska several years ago and the B10 made the wrong choice.  Once Missouri joined the SEC they were no longer interested in a B10 offer. 

West Virginia would add nothing to Ohio State's recruiting footprint. There are fewer high quality recruits there and we already have access to them given that it's a neighboring state. 

You can bet you a$$ Urban is happier having Rutgers & Maryland in the conference and it has nothing to do with their history or football respectability. For B10 schools it has to do with TV$s, but for Ohio State football it is all about the recruiting footprint. As the Eastern most schools in the B10 pre-expansion, OSU & PSU will benefit the most from the addition of Rutgers & Maryland.

Carbon freeze yourself until football season. No sense in aging while there are no Buckeye games. 

Comment 29 Mar 2015

Knight was a mixed bag. The shot above shows he failed to live up to the standards of behavior he expected out of his players. You can't be a diciplinarian toward your players but then be a discipline problem to your university. 

There were good things about Knight too.  You can bet your a$$ his players attended class and they learned great fundamentals. 

Comment 19 Mar 2015

I climbed the Left Buttress of Middle Cathedral peak in Yosemite. The climb ascends about 1100 feet and took all day for my climbing party to climb up and hike back down (i.e. climb up the face, hike down in the path to the side). The climbing was a blast and the views of El Capitan across the Yosemite Valley meadow were spectacular. 

Comment 14 Mar 2015

If it's not a big game I might start watching 30-40 minutes late.  I skip through the commercials in the first half, skip halftime and am live by the third quarter.  Big games or when multiple good games are being played at once, gotta be live.

Comment 08 Mar 2015

Mariots is way way way better at reading defenses and is much more accurate than Braxton.  He is light years ahead of Braxton as a throwing QB.  Braxton is the more explosive runner and better overalll athlete. 

Comment 27 Feb 2015

I thought this was an article about his circumsision. 

Comment 23 Feb 2015

I also thought about Terminator 2, but you have to enjoy Terminator 1 considering it probably has well less than 10% of the budget of T2. The effects were poor compared to modern movies, but such a great original story. 

Comment 23 Feb 2015

Amen brother. I hated that they skipped the whole part where the white wizard takes over the shire...to make that omission such a slap in the face they replaced it with 45 minutes of tearful hobbit man love goodbye scenes.  

Comment 21 Feb 2015

So glad to hear 618 is OK and will be seeking help.

Brighter days are ahead 618. It may be difficult to believe that now, but so many people here have shown that one can rise from the depths of despair. Keep fighting brother, we are behind you. 

Comment 19 Feb 2015

I think the draft analst(s) quoted in the article are spot on for Bennett and Grant, but optimistic for Smith and Heuerman.  My best guess:

Michael Bennett - second round, perhaps early side of round 2

Doran Grant - middle rounds (3-5) seems right

Jeff Heuerman - late rounds 5-6.  Can't see him getting selected before Nick O'Leary from FSU no matter what Heuerman does at the combine. Will have great measurables, but only 'good' film.  

Devin Smith - middle rounds.  I don't see how his lack of short to medium receptions won't hurt him. Unless he improves there, teams should give him a cushion and make sure he doesn't get behind them. No catches at the Senior Bowl. 

More important than the draft position, all 4 of these guys will make a 53 man roaster next fall. We have some guys who will be undrafted free agents who will make a serious run at a roaster next year. 

Comment 15 Feb 2015

I'd also vote Battle Star Galactica as one of the best written/acted shows ever. yo don't even need to be a sci-fi fan to like, it - it was a great character driven drama. 

Comment 15 Feb 2015

I would vote The Shield as having had the best ever series finale. All and all Breaking bad was a better show, but The Shield had the best series finale.
