Grew up in northeast Ohio. Now I don't live there. Go Bucks. My plan is to eventually retire to Youngstown or Cleveland and buy season tickets to all four teams that I love (Cavs, Browns, Indians, Bucks)


  • SPORTS MOMENT: As a Cleveland fan, not much. That one time the Browns went 10-6 and missed the playoffs? Let's go with that.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Troy Smith (I was at tOSU from 04-08)
  • NFL TEAM: The Super Bowl Bound Cleveland Browns
  • NBA TEAM: Cleveland Cavaliers
  • MLB TEAM: Roll Tribe

The only Brown worth talking about right now is Charlie Brown. 

The Christmas special is on ABC! 

Comment 29 Nov 2015

Wow. That didn't take long. I fear for the SEC East

Comment 29 Nov 2015

I mean, maybe, but why leave Sparty after how much he has built it up? 

Comment 29 Nov 2015

Ohio State would pass the eye test. 

If the oddsmakers in Nevada were the CFP committee, Ohio State would most definitely get in. Alternatively, Ohio State would not have been in last year...

Comment 29 Nov 2015

The Buckeyes are probably Fiesta Bowl bound. 

The only metric we know the committee clearly values is conference championships and Ohio State doesn't have one. While Ohio State passes the eye test over UNC and Stanford, one of the two teams would get the slot. 

I would love a brawl with Stanford at the Rose Bowl. 

Comment 29 Nov 2015

Another point to keep in mind: We only have one year of CFP committee data. Hard to generalize what they will do....

Comment 28 Nov 2015

Doesn't look like Florida has much interest in what you suggested after their effort against FSU. 

Comment 28 Nov 2015

Indeed. The committee, based on last year, clearly values conference championships. 

Comment 28 Nov 2015

It is a compelling argument, especially if Sparty beats Iowa (just compare the quality of losses), but I find it hard to have a CFP with three teams in the top ten and not one in the playoff.  

Eventually, ND will join the ACC for football. 

Comment 28 Nov 2015

Not sure how likely it is, but man would I love to play USC in the Rose Bowl--the dream matchup we missed out on in the mid 2000s

Comment 28 Nov 2015

Are you saying there is no B1G team in the playoff? The winner of Sparty/Iowa is definitely in the CFP

Comment 28 Nov 2015

Last time Iowa went to Rose Bowl? 1991, I believe.  Plus, 12-1> 11-1.   I wouldn't be surprise to see them take Iowa over the Buckeyes. 

Comment 28 Nov 2015

I would be able to fly down to Georgia in the morning and be back by New Year's Eve! 

Comment 28 Nov 2015

Historically, Fiesta has been were the Group of 5 team goes, but this hasn't always been the case (Take 2006 Fiesta for example...)

It would be nice to have a Notre Dame-Ohio State Bowl game without the Quinn/Hawk story for announcers to ramble on about. 

Comment 28 Nov 2015

The rivalry has certainly been diluted by the decline of Michigan (though they will rise again), the conference championship games (for a long time this WAS the conference title game), and the BCS/CFP.  Still important and the ratings will certainly say so, but rivalries as a whole are being passed over for conference titles and the CFP. 

Comment 26 Nov 2015

The "True fan" nonsense is ridiculous. There are things in life more important than Ohio State footballl and The Game."

You know what every Ohio State-Michigan game has in common? The sun rose the next day
