For those worried about jinxes, the whole 2012 season OSU was saying "the best thing about being 1-0 is the chance to be 2-0", and so on.  Didn't seem to hurt.

There are many things to fantasize about - why would you choose "sexy girl scout"?

Seems creepy.

Comment 23 Mar 2015

Unfortunately I've never been able to accept his statement on rape.  Just an idiotic thing to say.

Comment 23 Mar 2015

You must not know any Notre Dame fans.

The ones I know - and this is all of them - insist ND is still the more important program in college football.

And they believe it, which is scary.

UK basketball fan is just as annoying, but at least they still win.

Maybe I'm in the minority, but I think Russell is a great example of what's wrong with the one-and-done rule.  One year isn't enough for most.

He's obviously a great player, but I don't see him having much of an impact in the NBA next year.  As good as he is, he did struggle at times this year, and the talent level on the next level is going to skyrocket.

Based on potential I'm sure he's a lottery pick, but he needs another college season.  There are plenty of players in this category - it's no fun watching them grow in the NBA, and the college game suffers from that constant turnover.  I like watching the tournament, but the talent level right now is very diluted.  I'd say it makes that NBA adjustment even harder.

Are you saying we are up there with programs like Kansas, UNC, Kentucky, etc.?  Except for the Thad 5, recruiting doesn't reflect that.

I count 14 teams with multiple championships.  We aren't one of them.

Comment 20 Mar 2015

This is a "blue blood" discussion.  For football we are one, for basketball we aren't.

Matta's said his goal was to put us closer to that level.  He's certainly done that.  In my lifetime there were a few bright spots before Thad, but mostly a lot of forgettable teams.

I think the goal is to put the program in a place where the next coach can move forward to the "blue blood" level.  We can take Indiana's spot, since they don't deserve it anymore.

Duke wasn't much before Coach K.  It can happen.

Learn how to speak Canadian?

Comment 14 Mar 2015

The teacher / coach combo is a great choice.  But all I got from counselors was "teacher's don't make much, with your grades you should do something else".  I'm guessing lots heard things like that.  Kind of messed up really.

Comment 11 Mar 2015

When Urban was hired by OSU, a big thing about practice seemed to be that everything was a competition.  So I felt a bit insane, but I started doing the same thing with the youth teams I coach.  I'm not kidding, it makes a huge difference.

If they're really young you have to mix it up and have some fun too, but making things competitive works.  Even if they just compete against themselves.  Like if they did a certain drill right 10 times, write that down and next time challenge them to do better.  I basically rotate between compete against each other, compete against yourselves as a group.

Also, they're never too young for steroids.

Comment 11 Mar 2015

I'm not sure if any of the other major sports have something like the DH.  There are special rules to protect a QB which is the closest I can think of.

But it's not like a kicker gets replaced by someone who can actually tackle after he kicks off.  Goalies have lots of protections rules, but they still have to play the puck and can get creamed if they're not careful.

Comment 09 Mar 2015

It's amazing how badly they've handled the QB position since their return.  The list is endless, but passing on Big Ben for Winslow still has be the tops.

Although Johnny, Weeden and Quinn as first round picks may be worse.

I get frustrated with the Steelers, so I have no idea how Browns fans live.

Comment 07 Mar 2015

I don't look back at OSU's two straight championship losses with pride - not sure how a Bills fan could deal with twice the pain.

Plus, the AFC was historically weak then.

I'm a bandwagon.  Last year I was an Ohio State fan.  This year I'm a fan of the only undisputed national champions in college football history.

Comment 06 Mar 2015

Bad news - you suck at picking NFL teams.

Good news - it is impossible to call you a bandwagon.
