Buck68, it's a GAME; A release; A diversion from the minutiae of our daily grind. 

For some, it may just be a diversion to get through another crappy day at work. For others, it may be a diversion from a horrible divorce that they are going through or maybe a death in the family. And still others may just want to be associated with a winner. 

It seems to me that you are thinking too hard and taking this way too seriously.

Not really going out on a limb, but I predict more pain and losses for those poor saps up at TSUN.

I think rather than discussing who Urban's replacement is going to be in a decade, like on another thread, it would be more fun and pertinent to discuss who will be Hairball's replacement, and which assistant coaching job he'll have and where, after he is canned in A-squared.

As a Buckeye fan, I would not want a retread like Dantonio or Stoops. Stability and youth would be a much better option than those two who are approaching retirement and wouldn't be able to recruit whipper-snapper high school 4* and 5*s, IMHO. We see how important the recruiting game is under Meyer. 

Break the bank like TTUN did to get Hairball and go after Herman as 1st choice, then I guess Ash or Campbell as 2nd and 3rd choices.

 Maybe Mitch Albom, but until today, I didn't even know he was on the radio (he stopped being relevant years ago

It was Mitch Albom's sidekick, Kenny Brown, that made the comment about LJ. The dude is a total douche bag. And as far as Mitch goes, I don't know how you can live in Detroit and not know he's on the radio every day? The dude is very involved in the community and has written many books. He's cool. Kenny Brown? Not so much.

Growing up in Toledo, I was essentially raised on "Lake" Erie. The Great Lakes really aren't lakes at all. They are really much larger than lakes. A more accurate definition would be "inland seas." There is no shame in getting motion sickness out there. My son got it bad last fall on a fishing trip. And he was totally sober.  

That crying MJ pic cracks me up every time.

As a northwest Ohioan that never lived in Cleveland but has supported Cleveland teams for years, congratulations!!!!! I wonder how many of the folks that were ripping on LBJ for going to Miami and were reluctant to support him when he came back, are celebrating with him right now? 

38 camps for an entire football team of around 80 players and coaches costs $350,000? I find that to be waaaaaaay low. Hotel rooms for just 2 people averages around $100-$150/night. That doesn't include food and travel expenses to get to and back from camps for all of those 6'4" 250lb football players. I bet the real figure is closer to a million dollars. 

Schools from conferences that aren't in the Power 5, such as the MAC, can never afford to do that. Hell, not even Purdue or Indiana could afford to do that.

The only offer she said she wanted was... Ohio State. 

I hope you're right. Ohio State is a much closer drive to see her kid play than Stanford. Advantage: Ohio State. I'm more worried about Notre Dame on this one, more than any other school, TTUN included. Wherever this kid plays, be it OSU or ND, his dad will flip, if he has any brains at all.

Being from Toledo and seeing all of these damn TTUN fans up here, I like seeing when OSU gets kids from Toledo. TTUN has recruited Toledo hard since the 60s and 70s because of all of the fans here. 

I suppose this one will come down to ND and OSU, since he goes to St. John's Jesuit? Hopefully he listens to his mom more than his mixed up dad, and TTUN won't even be in play if they offer.
