Sad, but it is the right call. You can never pass up the opportunity to take care of your family for the rest of their lives. To a great season!
Sports are always connected to identity, and I identify with the Midwest. For me, whenever the B1G thrives, whether it be Sparty, Wiscy, or even little old Northwestern, it shows how the Midwest is superior to every part of the country. This is especially important for me living in New York City, converting people to our way of life.
I grew up in Lorain, graduated from Ohio State and moved to New York City at 22. My goal was to move home by 23.
7 years later, I am still here. I met my fiance, have a wonderful career, bought a home in Harlem, and hope to retire to Northeast Ohio.
I guess the point is that you never know what life will bring. You could have that opportunity away from Ohio or it could happen here.
Watch out for that Lorain County speed
Kentucky and Wisconsin in one national semifinal and Iowa State and Oklahoma in the other.
Kentucky over ISU for the championship.
We still have January 12th....
Of all the Cleveland Browns in the world, they are the Cleveland Browniest
Oklahoma had 3 of the top 4 in 2010, Bradford, McCoy, and Williams
I love the sports hiearchy questions
1. Cleveland Browns
2. Cleveland Indians
3. Ohio State Buckeyes
4. Cleveland Browns (they lapped the Cavs)
5. Cleveland Cavaliers
Living a 10 minute walk from Yankee Stadium, I get to see a lot of baseball, but only 2-3 Indians games.
I am so happy that Great Lakes Brewing has made it to NYC/NJ. My father-in-law got me two cases of Christmas Ale for the holidays along with the 6 I purchased!
Thad Matt is very good. He has done the best he can given the situation when he arrived and the troubles he inherited.
I think there is a glass ceiling on Ohio State basketball with or without Matta. It is hard to be an athletic department that consistently has a top 5 basketball and football team.
No matter how much they try to play up "LeBron would've gone here" they can't recruit the elite kids that Kentucky and Duke can (just like they cannot in football). The fact that a hypothetical scenario is perhaps their greatest recruiting ploy is a testament to the mediocrity of the program.
Am I the only one who wouldn't be opposed to this rule if it was implemented by the entire NCAA?
I would like to see if graduation rates for football and basketball players were higher prior to freshmen were deemed eligible to participate in early 70s.
The academic research is pretty steadfast: first year student achievement is predictive of graduation rates.
I am a little disappointed. I am in vacation in the DR and there is no place on the resort to get ashes
Yeah, I guess the last four games > that one time the Browns went 10-6 and missed the playoffs
You live and learn. Urban is no different,
Invest in relationships and outstanding assistants and a seemingly unsustainable job becomes sustainable
This is why I don't fault UAB for shutting down the most cost intensive sport, football.
While sports are important to any well-rounded University, the cost is often too much. Especially since most college sports are subsidized
I have weddings during Penn State, Rutgers (the only game I was going to attend) and Northern Illinois.
I am getting married in August 2016. My only fear is that it will interfere with Browns preseason football.
I get the love of football, but I will take the day to spend time at a open bar with loved ones.
The use of one metric to rank schools is pretty weak. SATs are only indicative of a students' approximate success their first year of college, not much else.
As a high school teacher, I tend to nudge kids to small liberal arts schools (Williams, Amherst, Kenyon, etc.), so they can cultivate relationships with their professors. This can happen at O-State, but is less likely.
A little unrelated, but I am disappointed by Ohio State's use of adjuncts and the lack of funding for graduate education.
Sorta like Urban Meyer. Have a solid run at Florida, disappear, and then come back for an even more glorious run. I can't wait to see him given some sweet chin music to Jim Harbaugh.
Has "Inked" replace Better Know a Buckeye?
In 2007, Alabama lost to Louisiana-Monroe. That fact alone shows how how fast fates can turn in CFB.
if you take the longer view Ohio State and Oklahoma have been the most consistent in this century
No love for Tracy Sprinkle and the Grown & Sexy Lounge? For shame, sir.
If the Jersey trend continues (Apple, Walker, etc.), we might need to start pumping Springsteen in the Horseshoe on gamedays.
To be fair, it is probably more appropriate to label New Jersey, Ohio East instead of adopt their customs.
Right on, Mrs. Apple.
Most of us can't comprehend the challenges these student-athletes must deal with.
