I like it! Although, I would rather see Michigan at the top as a tune-up game before we hit the meat of the schedule.

Take away Lebron's size and what does he provide?  If your answer is a terrible shot and receding hairline, you'd be correct.

Probably just a hair below LBJ fanboys. You know the ones, right? Hated the guy 3 yrs ago but now defend him til the end. Is that considered bandwagon or not? Because apparently if you appreciate the way GS plays basketball you're just a band wagoner.

I didn't say Curry had a great game. He had a very bad game! There's no question in that but when it was time to hit a shot he hit it. That's all I was saying. Don't act like Curry doesn't or hasn't hit big shots throughout these last two years! No one has done it better. Because he had a bad game means he doesn't have ice in his veins??

You act as if he was a non factor. How many layups did GS get because 2 Cav defenders followed Curry off the screen? Seems like Cleveland was defending him like a unanimous MVP.

I also believe I said he was Neutralized the entire game. That is giving credit to the defense.

Curry always seems to be there at the end when the team truly needs him. He is a closer and fans love to watch closers. You look at the difference all year in Curry and LBJ, Curry's face was constantly being shown closing games out in the final 3-5 mins. That's flashy  marketability for the NBA and Curry. Where as Lebron is much more of a grinder and more times than not differs to teammates late in the game. I think you put LBJ on any team and they automatically become contender but while carrying 7 mediocre players to the finals is impressive,  its done in about the most non sexy way possible. You take last night for instance, when it got to crunch time (under 5) who made the first dagger to remind everyone its game time? Curry was there! He was absolutely neutralized the entire game but when it was game time he nails a 3 and then Thompson gets in on the action to finish it off. Most people enjoy watching that kind of play and watching a player more times than not has ice running through his veins and is not afraid of shooting when things get tight. I think both would be great in any era. They are great players with unique skill sets. Could you imagine them on the same team? My god LBJ's ability to get to the basket and Curry sitting out there dropping 3's!?

Ok, Ill play your game-  So we are all animals correct? Fine, I'm with you, we are all animals living on this earth. A human is in fact a far superior animal than any other animal on the planet. That doesn't mean I don't appreciate other animals or want to wastefully kill them but the fact of the matter is humans are higher on the food chain than any animal in the wild or zoo. We have proven it in so many ways that I doubt we need to discuss. (the fact we are having this discussion through a computer or phone should be case in point) So really, a humans life is much more valuable than an animals life. Like a mama bear protecting her cub.  A human protected another human from a dangerous situation. Just so happens that the humans have a pretty effective way of protecting themselves. Had the Gorilla been as equal to the human it may have put up a better fight. Species protecting its own... for you its ok out in the wild but not when us human animals do it, correct?

Exactly, none of the "experts" making these 8-4, 9-3 claims talk about the level of experience we have at the most important position on the field! JT is a legitimate Heisman contender and I might buy into a few of these "losses" if we were replacing him but with him on the field, we have much better than a punchers chance against our Schedule. Let the experts keep disrespecting or counting the Buckeyes out. I think, I think, I think Urban Meyer is pretty good when that happens!? By the time we head to that state up north the boys will be gelling and hitting on all cylinders! If they can pull a big win out in Norman, look out because you get these young athletic, talented kids some confidence and its 2014 all over again!

At the same time though (this goes for many careers) getting back to what brought you into that career in the first place can be very invigorating. I think Shiano may really enjoy the role of coordinator and focusing on simply recruiting. He's not a youngster trying to make ends meet financially. He is doing this because he WANTS to do it not because he HAS to do it. That's a big difference. I think he's going to make an excellent hire and will bring our defense and staff to another level.
