  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2011 OSU - Wisconsin game. It was my freshman year, I was sitting in C deck between the towers on the north side of the Shoe. Braxton scrambled and threw an incredible 40 yard touchdown pass with 20 seconds left in the game to give the Buckeyes a 4 point lead. I stormed down to the field and managed to get to the endzone in time to sing Carmen. In an otherwise disappointing season, it was an incredible moment.

I agree that our schedule is probably tougher than people are making it out to be, but I don't see PSU as much of a threat.  While James Franklin may be a great coach, after three years of sanctions PSU is really lacking on the depth chart.  Hackenburg lost his top target in Allen Robinson and sophomore Geno Lewis is largely untested.  MSU will definitely be difficult.  I suspect that it will be the only game where we may not be favored.  I don't think it's entirely unlikely that we will be undefeated going into the B1G CG/ bowl season but it is certainly possible.  I also agree that I have concerns about Cardale's ability to run the offense.  I think that if a tough game comes down to him, we will probably lose.  I think the SEC will really beat up on each other and I anticipate that there will not be an undefeated team in the SEC when all is said and done.  I don't have a lot of faith in Oregon or Oklahoma, but I could be way off the mark.

Thanks!  I was already looking at the Audio Technica AT-LP 120 and AT-LP 60.  I am leaning to the 60 because of the price.

I'm interested in trying some betting but honestly have no idea how legal online sports gambling is in Ohio.  Anyone want to help me out on this?  I tried googling it and I found a bunch of websites that said it is legal, but I'm not sure if I can trust those sites.  Can anyone give me some sources?

I'm an Indians fan, my roommate is a Reds fan and he loves to mock me for Mr. "Bro-hio".  I don't care. I love the guy's attitude.  I'm a little concerned with his performance, but I can't help but like him.

That picture is from the 2011 Wisconsin game.  And what a game it was!

Comment 06 Jun 2014

I completely agree.  I think if they were to expand to 8 teams the first round would need to be hosted by the higher ranked team in the match up.  I also love that every single game matters.  It's what makes college football unique and is one of the things I love most about the sport.

I love that site! I think it's great that the mentally challenged are given internet access.

The problem is not that they are using "real" players it is that they are using their likeness. The rosters that have accurate names are made up by third parties and available for download.  EA never published a game with the players names included, instead they would create players with similar attributes such as height, weight, athletic ability at each position, often skin color, playing styles, and the correct number on jerseys.  In NCAA Football 14, the quarterback for OSU (known as QB #5) is 6'2", 220 pounds, black, and classified as a scrambler.  The real Braxton Miller is 6'2", 216 pounds, black, and classified as "Dual Threat" by scout.com.  When playing the dynasty mode, you are right that it is completely fictionalized after 4-5 seasons, but the every time you play online you play with the rosters that the game starts with.  If you want a game that accurately represents college football every year, it means that they have to use current players and stats to base the in-game characters off of.  If they were to continue to make the game with completely made up characters (to avoid another law suit in the future) rankings and talent would not be accurate for multiplayer or online play.  I would be fine with that though! I play the dynasty and road to glory modes WAY more than online.  I want another game, but I don't think we will get one until the system changes.

Does anyone know what is happening with the Skull Session now that they are going to tear down St. John's? The new Covelli Arena will only seat 4,000 people.  St. John's seats over 13,000 and is almost always at capacity for Skull Sessions.

I really like that thought.  As far as the local school/MAC team, I would love to try and keep it in Ohio.  BGSU, Toledo, Kent, Akron, OU, Cincinnati, something like that.  The difficulty with the first part is that year to year it may be hard to schedule two OOC Top 25 opponents without going after the usual suspects that we can predict (Alabama, Oklahoma, etc.).  Cal was bad when we scheduled them in 2002 for the 2012-13 home and home, then they were pretty good, then they sucked by the time we played them.  We are scheduled to play Oregon in 2020 and 2021 and Texas in 2022-2023.  Who knows how good they will be that far from now.

Comment 15 May 2014

Exactly. I was at that game and on top of high winds, it kept changing directions as it whipped through and around the stadium. Braxton went 13 of 29 for 150 yards. He really shouldn't have had that many opportunities to throw.  With the weather I'm surprised it wasn't more like 18 or 20 attempts with more play to Hyde (24 carries, 246 yards, 4TDs) or Wilson (1 carry, 7 yards, 0 TDs).  He did have a lot of bad throws that game but the wind certainly didn't help.

Comment 02 May 2014

Agreed.  I'd rather see him stay healthy.  Ideally I'd like to see him finish the season with no more than 700-800 yards rushing and around 3500 yards in the air.  I think it would be best for the team and best for Braxton if he wants a serious shot at a career as a QB in the NFL.  In fourteen games (although I hope we play 15) that comes out to 50-60 yards rushing and 250 passing each.
