You don't gain anything if you're Ohio State.  Sure it's a small step up in competition but Ohio State already plays in one of the hardest conferences and usually has a game or two against teams like UNC, Duke, or Kansas.  The basketball team needs those creampuffs to rack up wins for the tournament.  Without those 15 wins at the beginning, it would have been harder for Ohio State to make the tournament.   If you beat a UD, it's just another win and the sports world doesn't blink. Lose and the whole world notices (dayton daily news headline) and you have a harder time recruiting the talented in state kids against Duke, UK, etc. Even if Dayton was close in talent to Ohio State, tt wouldn't matter.  Dayton is seen as a lesser program by the rest of the country.  Playing 13 creampuffs and 1-2 big non conference foes is good enough for me.  Especially since the B1G has 3 teams in the elite 8.   

I will say that I agree with you that I'd love to beat UC and UD every year.  Especially since I can't stand UC fans but it's just not what Matta is going to do. To be honest, we don't really need to either.  We've played Duke, Kansas and others before B1G play and unlike football, our basketball team gets tested before the tournament during B1G play.

I think this is the case with pretty much most of the Non-Ohio State Ohio teams.  I avoid things like my facebook after games like this.  I grew up in Dayton so I have some friends on Facebook that definitely call themselves "fans" but never once mentioned them during the year until tooday.  Lots of bandwagon "fans".

As a Patriots fan, this would be my favorite draft choice possible.  I know Brady has a few more years and odds are Kenny G wouldn't ever become our starter but on the off chance it happened. I'd be one happy Patriots fan.

Doesn't mean he shouldn't give it a shot. He can always go to coaching if he fizzles out.  If Brady took that same advice when he was projected as a late round draft pick, he wouldn't be wearing three rings and married to a supermodel. :)

Not really.  As a Patriots fan, every thing I've heard recently is that Mallett will be gone sooner rather than later.  He's already several years into his career and Brady wants to play til he's 40.  That's another 3-4 years of Brady.  That would mean Mallett is half way through his career without ever getting a meaningful snap.  They will use Mallett to get some draft picks, it's the BB way.

Most people are proud to say michigan's best players came from Ohio because most people are aware you can't get every player from your state. The talent is just too rich in Ohio for Ohio State to grab every player.  There are also a ton of people in both states that like the other school because it goes against what everyone else is doing. That's another reason you have kids from either state going to another.  Webb has said, on several occasions, that he's always liked Ohio State, that he wasn't gonna do things just because everyone else around him was.  Therefore, knowing we can't get every great kid from Ohio to come here means we take pride knowing you've had to come to our state to get your best players.  I, sure as hell, wouldn't want most of Ohio State Heisman trophy winners to come from Michigan. Hell, half of the winners for Ohio State were born in Columbus and 2 of the 6 played high school football in Columbus.  Ohio is like Texas...we take pride in our high school football.

Something my co-worker and I built at Wal-Mart Tuttle Crossing. I've seen that tank at a couple of stores before.

Edit: I know it's not a tank but we were happy with the display.  Having new flavors meant we could finally be creative with displays.

It amazes me that a player can sit our a few months due to a season ending injury and all of a sudden fall off people's radars.  Rondo is still one of the best (non-scoring) point guards in the league.  If he could hit a jump shot, people could argue he was the best.  He can't but he still dishes out assists like nobody else.

Not going to lie, being a Boston sports fan and having family around the Boston area, the video of the national anthem and the Boston Strong video presented before had me in tears.  While, I don't have family directly in Boston or have anyone there that day, Boston has always felt like a second home to me.

Jet's and Bengals can't both make the playoffs.  There is one spot left in the AFC.  You have four division winners and Pitt/Balt whoever doesn't win getting the 5th seed.  Leaves one spot left for Jets/Bengals.
