I was born and raised in Southeastern Ohio and after I graduated college I moved to the Memphis area where my brother lived (& still lives). Life-long Buckeye fan in SEC country.

As someone who is a Grizzllies fan and lives in the Memphis area I'd love to see Oden join the team, but my fear is the Grizzlies will be losing Gasol to free agency and they're feeling the need to bring in a backup center behind Koufos.  Gasol is the best center in the NBA as far as I'm concerned and their playoff hopes are gone if he leaves.

Ditto on Robert Landers.  My guess is he doesn't get as much love as other high profile DT's because he's considered to be undersized but I think he's going to be a game-changer for the Buckeyes.  Maybe not in his Freshman season but I wouldn't be surprised to see him start as a Sophomore.   I don't know what competiton he played against in HS but even if it wasn't great he was blowing Oline guys off the line of scrimmage and making plays in the backfield.  I've been singing his praises for a while now and I can wait to see him in the field.

Memphis did that when Derrick Rose was committed.  There were billboards around the city that had a Rose on it along with some vague commentary.  Schools can't use their names until they actually sign or are enrolled, I don't remember which.

The article rightly points out the Sophomores that need to contribute this year, but the guy I'm really anxious to see play is Robert Landers.  After watching his film I think he's under-rated by the agencies and we're going to see him do big things.  He's a bit undersized for the DT position but his leg strength was incredible and I think he's going to be a force in the middle for years to come.

I think I've figured out their scheme.  Harbaugh's giving 2 Cokes to anyone who follows him.  They then can use those 2 Cokes to get tickets to a UM game.  I'm sure this is a ploy to get back their #1 ranking in attendance.

Considering they will have no Seniors and only 1 Junior I think just making the tournament will be a successful season.  I'm all for high expectations but I'm also realistic at the same time.  Next year, average. The next 2 seasons I expect them to make a run in the tournament.  There's nothing wrong with that. B

I love Carlos Hyde but if Zeke stayed through graduation there'd be no comparison between him & what Carlos did his senior year.  Hyde was a beast and I hated to see him leave, but after what Zeke did as a true sophomore I think his ceiling is much higher.

^^^^^  So much this!  Those who possess the work ethic and the dedication to do the "dirty work" are the ones that get ahead and make a name for themselves.  The biggest failures I've seen in my profession were the ones who came in but thought the work was beneath them so off they left for supposed greener pastures.  I'll take the "3 star" who's willing to bust it over a prima-donna "5 star" every day of the week.

Screw the Cubs.  All they need to do to right the ship is let a descendent of that goat into a game and their fortunes will be reversed.  If that doesn't do it then there's no hope for them.  I'd prefer that Meyer's mojo stay in the state.

Mine too.  Funniest episode of Seinfeld and they were all pretty funny.  The other one was when Elaine walked in on George when he was changing and later George & Jerry had to explain shrinkage. 

Elaine - "It shrinks?"

Jerry - "Like a frightened turtle."
