I'm mixed on Penn State. Yes, they are considered one of the kings of college football and yes it's a large public university with a huge stadium that should fit right in the B1G, but their JoeBot fanbase is borderline creepy. I think a writer from Nebraska says it best. So Penn State would be my pick to get the boot.
All of these attention whores are bad. It's just some are worse than others.
I know I read the game plan was to tear St John down and replace it with the Covelli Arena. Now St John is going to be around for decades?
I can't believe what I'm reading. It's the 3rd week of JUNE for goodness sakes. There's nothing going on except rumors and more rumors. Give the guys a chance to get the best writer they can.
Doesn't the $10 million CBS pays for the basketball rights seem awfully low?
I've got several. The 2002 Michigan game. We had won so many close games that year, I was afraid Michigan would ruin our undefeated season. The 2002 NCG against Miami. It had been so long since we played for a championship, plus Miami was juggernaut of a team. Third would be against Alabama. Same scenario as Miami. Alabama's players were 10 feet tall and had the feel of an unbeatable team. We won all three of these games and there was much joy in the CarolinaBuck household.
Doris Burke is painful to listen too. Both her voice and the stupid questions she asks.
Born at St. Ann's in Columbus. I grew up on the far east side and went to Walnut Ridge HS. From there, I went to College at the only school that matters and got a degree in economics. I'm married with four children (all girls) with two having graduated College (Duke and Ohio State) and two are still in school (Vanderbilt and North Carolina-Charlotte). I live in Matthews NC which is a suburb of Charlotte.
Half of Meyer's current roster wasn't part of the program in 2014 when it won the inaugural College Football Playoff National Championship.
Time really moves fast when you're in college.
I went to a Checkers game the I was in Cub Scouts and later on after High School, I used to go to the Owls' games. Remember Moe Bartoli?
I watched the doctor in 71 when he was with the Virginia Squires of the old ABA
I think the ABA had more to do with changing the game of basketball than anything else. The NBA had the four year rule, while the ABA let players come out of college much earlier. The NBA had to change because they were starting to lose all of the all star type players in college to the ABA.
The last time OSU had a coach of this super star magnitude Wayne Woodrow Hayes was walking the sidelines,
Ohio State has never had a coach with the rock star status of Urban Meyer—even Woody.
Didn't realize his mother was 6'2".
That one kid is off to a great start
That's what I'm afraid of.
Please God, if we have to wear these things, let it be against Bowling Green or Tulsa. Two games no one will remember.
I wonder how many trips the Bosa's have made to Columbus.
If you really pay attention to the intricate moves these pilots make, there seems to be very little margin for error. The show I went to a couple of years ago here in NC, the PR women said they constantly train, not only in the plane, but i the classroom as well.
Shawshank is one of the movies I watch, no matter where it is in the movie, until the end. I want to be on that beach when Red reunites with Andy working on that old boat.
69 years old and still firing live ammo.
You have to give CBS and the SEC credit for one thing. They go out and get the best talent to broadcast their games, even if that means stealing them away from a rival network. First they got Danielson who was the best analyst at ABC and now they get Nessler, who's damn near the best.
My first trip to Florida was in July about twenty years ago. I was dressed in a dark blue business suit and had to make a phone call from a pay phone because my bag phone couldn't get a signal. I saw a phone at a Circle K convenient store and got out to use it. I was probably on the phone a total of 10-15 minutes and when I got back in my rental car, I was soaked to the skin from the heat and humidity. I was literally shivering going down the road due to the air conditioner blasting my wet clothes. There's a reason you don't see come to Florida ads on the television in July. You might just die.
Houston is not a desirable school for expansion to an existing Power 5 conference. No conference is going to do backflips if they add the Cougars. What Houston has going for it though is there are very few schools left that really move the expansion excitement meter. Although Houston isn't one of those schools, they aren't the worst option either. So basically what they have going for them is "we may be bad, but we're not as bad as some other teams."
Cal finished 1st in the V4 and 2V8 and 2nd in 1V8 while the Buckeyes finished 5th in the V4 and 2nd in the 2V8. In all of the races, we got off to a slow start, sometimes rowing in last place, but putting on a furious finish to win the 1V8 and runner-up in the 2V8. In the V4, we were never really in it, but if we could have finished even in 3rd place, we would have won a fourth championship. Also in the 2 V8, the Buckeyes got off to a slow start and were in once again in last place for part of the race, more than a full boat length behind Cal, but really put on an incredible burst for the last 500 m and lost by .8 of a second. Still finishing 2nd overall by 3 points is still great. So we'll see what kind of adjustments the Buckeyes make to offset those starts.
