*In my Dan Dakich Voice* You know, Trey McDonald could have benefited from a redshirt. Also, my wife left me.

Wisely, I waited until lunch to read the Skully...otherwise I would not have had the pleasure of spitting my ham sandwich all over the place upon reading the line above...funny.

but my solution is give all the minutes to the younger guys.

Apparently two scUM trolls do not want Zeke to make a 100% recovery...can't say I blame them, since he is going to establish a new single game rushing mark in Whore Arbor this year.

Wishing you a speedy recovery fellow Buckeye.

If scooters had a labor union, this one definitely has grounds for a grievance....

I would also have to give big ups to the 90's...which for me spanned years 21-31, so although being a bad-ass at tether-ball is definitely cool (you must have assumed my title from the 80's) drinking beer out of buckets, drinking legally period, visiting my more successful college friends (meaning they graduated) in their various landing spots, including Florida, Zona, Hawaii, and Chicago 50X, meeting all of the prospective Mrs. Barnseys', of which there were more than 2 and less than 500...times were muy excellente' my Holmes. 

Buckeyes were heartbreaking in the 90's but I was too busy getting busy to get down for too long.

And the Buckeyes have plenty...*beep-beep*

Nice, will good to get him back draining 3's. My special friend with access to the team said it would be 3 games, and he was right! But he, nor anyone else it seems, knows the "why"? Oh well, hope he got his shit together and learned a lesson *shakes finger and scolds the giant man-child*

Throw those stats up as a 2014 projection for the Bucks last preseason, and you would have been given a one-way ticket to hack-ville, and/or a rubber-room. Simply mind-boggling, and still somewhat unbelievable...I have to watch the Sugar Bowl and the Title Game every week just to make sure it really happened.

Oh I remember...and remember the 80's as well, which weren't as painful as the 90's but could have been a lot better. I have some very good friends, old friends since childhood, who are TSUN fans, and although I love beating their team & talking smack afterward, it feels so much better when they actually think they can win, and/or have something besides the Poulan Weedeater Bowl on the line. 2006 was the last time I truly saw pain on their faces after we won, and now they just expect to lose...but to your point, is that worth seeing the collective pain on the faces of Buckeye Nation when scUM finally makes it count, and God forbid they win? Probably not, so I totally get your perspective, and at the end of The Game every year, a Buckeye victory is all that matters. 

Last thought...The Game did not become the rivalry it is known to be because one-side dominated the other for 100 years. Part of being a true Buckeye is understanding that TSUN is our ultimate rival, and beating them is the most important regular season task in any given year, and you obviously do that. I suppose my fault is that I worry this might change over time if one side dominates the other too long...and then The Game is only a game.

See, there's that "spark" word again...

The B1G needs more competitive teams top to bottom, so if this cat stays home (which is never a negative for the recruit or his family) and makes RU better, good for them/him. 

Not sure I'm believing the Joker and his statements regarding NJ being some secret talent treasure-trove, that no one has discovered, but I guess anything is possible. Regardless, it is going to take some time for that talent to manifest itself in the form of championship caliber teams.

OSU can survive not signing a top-flight QB in 2016, if that indeed becomes the reality.

Amir is a nice young man, and a very good basketball player...otherwise he wouldn't be here on a scholarship. He just isn't a great college basketball player, and it appears he never will be. However, he can still play a vital roll down the stretch if he can eliminate the mistakes. 

Hey, the football team got better every week down the stretch, so there is no reason the b-ballers can't do the same thing.
