I would sweat-stain the hell out of that Tux before I would ruin a Saturday in the fall!!!

Comment 23 Jul 2014

It is beyond me how people schedule these dates and call themselves football fans. Ramzy hit it on the head. When you say "and everyone loved it" they are lying to you. Everyone has their own CF Saturday rituals and none of them want that messed up. The things I have skipped over the years because it was a weekend in the fall would make you think I'm the worst person in the world. Maybe I am but I did enjoy watching 12 hrs of football all day without having to pretend I was somewhere I wanted to be!

Bovada online is the best place I've found for online sports betting. Have bet there the past three seasons and have had no issues. It's a very secure site and has a quality reputation. Many other sites tend to come and go which obviously can be dangerous with your money on it. It's very simple to use, navigate, etc..

I agree with gluefingers, Bovada doesn't offer as many line bets or prop bets as other sites but Im willing to give on some of those to be on site I trust. I'm a parlay junkie as well and the site meets my needs very well.

+WARNING+ it is very easy to use and that can be a bad thing at times! ;)

National Signing day is a long way away. If we lose out on Harris and as the season progresses don't be surprised to see Scott back in the mix. As Meyer stated,  "a verbal just means you're in their top 3" Lots of time left for a potential flip, if things don't work out with Harris.

Agree completely. Recruits won't choose OSU because of James but James being around will help get kids on campus. Once here, the coaching staffs can sell OSU. James may be able to draw interest from recruits who might not be high on OSU. The key is just to get them on campus and who knows maybe they like what they see or didn't expect OSU to be like this. I think James could provide that little something extra to get kids to look at the state of Ohio.

Could it have been written before the draft? My guess is with those thoughts and the heartfelt sentiments towards NE Ohio, he was coming home regardless of the seasons outcome.

Comment 11 Jul 2014

Heard it as well. I was wondering at the time of the letter if this would come back to bite him. Many Cleveland fans were over joyed and supported Gilbert's rants because it was at the time "what they felt." Look at it now, Gilbert has kept the letter up on a website for 4 yrs, why??? Pride? Ego?  Now its costing him a chance to potentially get the best player in the world back and with the teams moves, clearly someone he wants back. A great lesson can be had by all. When ever you feel wronged take a step back and think about your actions before doing them.

No doubt about it. The offenses success is all on Braxton's shoulders. He is a 4 year starter now with tons of experience as he goes so does the offense.  He needs to stay healthy and in the game, if that means sliding or getting out of bounds then do it!

Exactly right! God knows I wouldn't want to be a role player on the Lakers with Kobe and Melo. You'd see the ball for two seconds off a rebound and that's about it.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

Not sure Carmelo and James would mesh well together. I always got the impression of Melo he is nothing but scorer and pad his own stats. IMO not what James needs around him.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

I believe people may be under estimating our offense. I know we lose the offense of line but we have also seen how great our coaching staff is in regards to that position. I have faith they will put together a solid unit. Losing Hyde is a blow for sure but I think a seasoned Miller, along with these other weapons will take a lot of pressure off the o-line/running game. We got some great talent in the skilled positions many with at least a year under their belt. I for one am being very optimistic in what our offense is going to be able to produce this year. It wouldn't shock me if we have better numbers then last year.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

I got your point and agree with it.  I probably wasn't clear with mine as I threw in the "sparty" comment. I don't think they will go back to being mediocre either. MSU will always be a tough test because defense can keep you in any game. However, how many BCS bowls have they been to over its era? They are destined to being what they are- a tough test for any team but if bounces don't go there way they will be in the Capital One bowl playing against 3rd-4th best SEC school. They haven't shown consistency year to year to put together seasons like last. Being in Chicago, there is a strong MSU fan base here and to your point many of them think because of one victory over us and a rose bowl win, they are the team to beat in the conference. I'm saying history isn't on their side to repeat their season from last year. They may beat OSU but history tells me they will have a "sparty" hiccup somewhere along the line this season.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

 Exactly, MSU is good for a season like last years 1 every 3-4yrs. They will not be as good this year, period. Their defense will be weaker this year and ours will be better. We lose very little on offense and MSU, as usual, will have little to offer offensively. Aside from the fact its in East Lansing, I'm not as worried about them this year because it is time for them to be "Sparty." They typically don't put back to back seasons together up there unless we are talking B-Ball.
