I've never hated and loved a Buckeye quite the way I do Turner. The truth is, he probably cost us as many games as he won. I always (not so creatively) called him Evan Turnover. He absolutely had no situational awareness. That's probably the reason he had no problem forcing shots and turning it over. But it's also the reason he was cool in the clutch. I'm convinced he only passed to pad his assist numbers, and only hustled to tally rebounds. I do admire his drive and unabashed selfishness. History willl look upon him much more favorably than I ever will.

His schtick is beyond old at this point, but it's still a shame to see him go. My childhood entertainment is disappearing from ESPN. Dan Patrick, Stu Scott, and Berman were all guys I grew up watching. 

Comment 26 May 2016

I'm actually surprised he got canned. There must be something tangible showing his involvement. He meant too much to that program to be fired over rumors.

Criminal trespassing is something other charges get reduced to. Seeing how he was only arrested for that, it's safe to say he'll be fine. Next time he'll get permission to fish.

This is my curiosity as well. Does CTE cause depression/mental disorders, or do they coexist unrelated. There's probably some connection, but as you said, not everyone determined to have CTE has had these issues.

Does the NFL breathe a little sigh of relief when this is found? It seems like it's being portrayed as a football disease more than a result of repetitive brain injury.

The NFL should've been more proactive in the planning process. If you think a certain Doctor is biased, specify before agreeing to donate the money. Attaching strings before hand is much better than after.

I guess I'm in the minority in agreeing with the NBA not suspending him. I can't stand Green, but I don't think it was intentional. Ruling it a flagrant 2 is BS, though. The difference between foul and suspension is intent. Although he's a dirty player, I don't think that was intentional to kick Adams.

It's supposed to be, anyway. I'm getting out, but my long pants and long sleeves are getting worn out. 

Comment 17 May 2016

I think they have the team, they just need to get it together. A healthy Brantley goes a long way. I think Chisenhall should be the every day RF. Waive Uribe, call up Urshela once he gets healthy. Put Naquin in center. Maybe split him with Davis until you're sure Naquin is the guy. Let Ramirez be your super utility guy like Aviles had been. I really like Gimenez catching Bauer. The odd man out should be Marlon Byrd, in my opinion. The young talent has proven itself to be close enough to the veterans to ride out the bumps. Let the roster gel for a while and you'll have a powerhouse by August. They'll be worlds ahead once they get an everyday lineup.

He kind of stepped into his jump. Not that I could do it with the help of a trampoline. 

Comment 16 May 2016

Not suspending Odor would be beautiful, but it'll never happen. Justice here will be a similar or larger suspension for Bautista. 

Comment 16 May 2016

I had no problem with the bat flip. I also have no problem with plunking Bautista. The slide was bush league, and he got what was coming to him. I hate to see brawls in baseball, but that punch was a thing of beauty. Bautista is a bit of a show-off, and that's fine. Getting thrown at comes with the territory.
