  • SPORTS MOMENT: Even though it is technically vacated, attending the 2011 Sugar Bowl to watch the Buckeyes beat Arkansas. It's one thing to be among thousands of Buckeye fans in Columbus, but it's a whole different experience to travel far away from the Shoe and be part of the 'migration' of Buckeyes, especially when we win!

Great article, better man. He's such a class act, or should I say 'genius' act!

Hmmm living in San Diego I don't find the drivers to be that bad, but maybe I have just become 'one of them.' I will say California drivers in general have a need for speed and don't hesitate to changes lanes quickly at high speeds. 

Either way I'll take my perfect weather and beach life over better drivers and a Columbus winter any day!

I moved to San Diego last year from Toledo...best decision ever. My brother is coming to visit on Saturday so I have been think about where I will take him. 

I would echo a lot of the previous comments.

  • PB/Mission Beach (It's not football season but Draft in Mission Beach is the Buckeye bar with tons of beer on tap and good food too)
  • OB Pier 
  • Torrey Pines/Del Mar Beaches
  • The Cove in La Jolla has great restaurants, the seals are cool but a bit smelly, kayaking
  • Great breweries including Stone
  • The Zoo/Balboa Park and Safari Park (Escondido)
  • Coronado and Silver Strand State Beach
  • The Lighthouse in Point Loma is really cool and has amazing views. You can also climb down to the tidal pools there
  • Gaslamp District is great for nightlife
  • Lots of hiking...Potato Chip Rock and Mission Trails are nice
  • Phil's BBQ is a must

There's so much to do here!

Regardless of your personal opinion about Lady Gaga (past or present, good or bad) you can't ignore that she is a talented artist and singer. But more importantly we, as a society, have been ignoring how we handle sexual abuse for far too long. 

It is one of the few, if not only, times we question and persecute the victim of a crime. It is something that needs to be addressed because far too often victims feel forced into silence. I applaud Lady Gaga for shedding light on this issue on such a large platform, and at the very least it has people talking. This forum is an example of that. 

It shouldn't matter if her performance was great or mediocre in your opinion, What should matter is that you heard the message in the lyrics she sang, and that our society recognizes the importance of the change we need and acts upon that.

Granted I wasn't on the jury and the documentary is bias....I still feel like it is obvious that there is a reasonable doubt in the case. If this system works correctly that should be enough to find him 'innocent'. Either way it is very intriguing!

This is awesome! I was at the game and have not had a chance to watch the TV Broadcast so this is perfect!

When I was in undergrad I ran into the sweater vest, Jim Tressel, at the Thompson library and got a pic with him. He was super cool about it. 

Also had a few run ins at a south campus dining facility with Koufas and Diebler, and on the women's basketball team I had a class with Jantel Lavender. She was pretty cool too, and probably bigger than everyone in our class haha.

I agree with the Dirty Bird, Cock n Bull, the Blarney, and Bronze Boar. Just moved from Toledo to California and those are some of my favorite spots.

There's also a few good restaurants across the river at the docks for dinner. These are usually best during the summer when you can sit outside right by the river, but you never know the weather might be perfect in March.

Definitely agree with San Marcos if you like Mexican food and margaritas. They have some pretty strong margaritas and if you order the frozen ones you will get more booze in your drink!

Just got an email that I was allotted 2 tickets from the public waitlist so looks like I'm going too! Only about a 5 hour drive from San Diego :-)

Not counting my chickens before they hatch, but I'm the best man in a wedding the day of the B1G Championship....the groom is a fan of TTUN so I guess I understand why he has no concern his wedding falls on this day!

My two cents.....One thing to remember is that while Cardale did lead the team to the three wins at the end of the season, J.T. had a record breaking regular season. His compiled a lot of yards and TDs, that's not to say Cardale couldn't have done the same thing with all of the playmakers, BUT at the very least it proves that J.T. is capable.

Secondly, I think that J.T. is a much more natural leader than Cardale. Coach Meyer and various team members have voiced J.T.'s leadership abilities and that shows since he was voted as a team captain. One of the intangibles that is really important for QBs to have.

Third, (and this is a bit more subjective (because I haven't spent much time researching it) it seems like J.T. tends to be a better decision maker and distributes the ball better as well. I always seem to feel more comfortable when J.T. is making a read option or reading pass defenses rather than Cardale. But again this is a more subjective point from my perspective.  

Lastly, I feel like the offense and Cardale do much better with a deep threat WR in the game, i.e. Devin Smith. Without that threat there's a lot more reliance on the run game and short passes where the QB must read the defense. And going back to my last point, I feel J.T. performs better than Cardale in that situation.

Sorry for the long post, but tried to put some thought into it like you asked. At the end of the day I'm not a coach and I hope the team focuses on the fundamentals regardless of the QB to produce wins.
