Any correlation of the good to dominate Brown's teams of the 50's, 60's and 70's that drafted eighteen Buckeye's and the woeful last thirty-five years with only four Buckeye's drafted. I think so.

P.S. I didn't know where to look, but have the "new" Browns drafted even one Buckeye?

I wonder how much say Pettine has in the draft? That's why it's so important for the HC and GM to be on the same page when you're building a team. Being a lifelong Brown's fan, I've been taught to keep my expectations low, but it does appear that there seems to be some rhyme and reason for this years draft. That would be a nice change.

One out of eighty-five scholarships is one thing. Six out of eight just seems odd to me

Comment 27 Apr 2015

With the women winning the B1G golf championship over the weekend, I went to the athletic website and it just struck me as odd that of the eight members of the team, only two were from the United States, the rest were from foreign countries. I'm not trying to pick nits here, but aren't there deserving Americans that could have used a scholarship instead of bringing in girls from all over the world?

Urban is going to have a gut wrenching choice to make this fall if all three are healthy. Everyone is saying the right things now, but one of these guys is going to be third string and may never see the field. If the second and third guy do get into the game, the score will be so lopsided, all he will do is run out the clock. It's my guess that this fall when Urban has to make those decisions of who will play, the "we all get along" song that everyone is singing now, may fade away.

Very interesting talk by David Epstein at TED examining the differences between today's athlete and athletes from the past. Is today's athlete faster and stronger than their predecessors? Is Usain Bolt faster than Jesse Owens? Is Michael Phelps the fastest swimmer of all time? Take a listen listen takers and draw your own conclusions.

Desalination plants require massive amounts of electricity to operate. This creates another problem in that where are they going to get the power to operate them? Intermittent supplies like wind and solar won't cut it. Coal? Nuclear? Oil or gas? In California? Fergetaboutit. The truth about the water shortage in California is all about environmental politics. The last reservoir built was back in the 70's and since that time, the population has almost doubled. Instead of pissing away 100 billion dollars on a choo choo train from LA to San Francisco, the leaders should have been building more storage capacity. Oh well...

Since Ohio State buys new everything every year, does anybody know what Ohio State does with all of their uniforms and equipment from last season? They're must be over a hundred helmets and jerseys, plus practice footballs and other assorted equipment fans would love to buy.

As long as they keep the helmet the way it is, I'll be fine. They need to lose that chromey looking helmet with the turquoise buckeye leaves.

I think Urban's buyout is a little misleading. The first four years, where no one thinks Urban is going anywhere, the price is steep. But once year five hits and his son graduates high school, the numbers become a little more tempting if Urban wants to go that route. My thought isn't based on contract extensions at some point, but on the reality of todays contract.

To me, the key date is when his kid graduates from Watterson. If, and I know it's a big if he has won another championship or two, I could see him opting for an NFL gig, maybe a Florida team like the Miami Dolphins.

PS I hope he stays his whole career, but most coaches wear out their welcome in a number of ways after about ten years
