Totally agree with this. Seatgeek combines the postings from Stubhub, uberseat, Razorgator, ticketcity, ebay etc. They then rate all of those postings on how good of a deal they are relative to the majority of secondary market listings. I bought my Bengals vs Chargers playoff games tix from there and saved a ton. Good luck to you man!

I agree. People always are giving all the credit to the guy who throws the ball (the assist), but also don't give enough credit to the catcher applying the tag. It's a part of the play that's taken for granted when in reality it's incredibly difficult especially with the new rule in place with regards to blocking the plate. I think Mes has done a great job. He will only get better in throwing runners out and I honestly think the framing of the pitch argument might be a little overblown, although I agree that Molina and Hanigan are noticeably better at that skill. Our team strikes out a ton of batters evidenced by all the free pizza vouchers I have accumulated this year. I think Mes's ability to call games has improved significantly with the chance to hold down the starting gig that he has been given this year. He's truly a guy that is showing consistent improvement with the more opportunities he's given. Let's hope it keeps up!

I don't know why, but I can't stop watching this GIF.

Is it just me or does that drummer for War on Drugs look like Shooter McGavin? Are those drums rentals Shooter?

Comment 09 Jul 2014

Couldn't have said it better myself. He has surprising power for a little guy as well (185 lbs?). He definitely needs to work on the plate discipline/walking more, but I do love how he battles in there and hasn't struck out nearly as much as people were projecting. Glad you brought up the defense too because people don't realize that his defensive sabermetrics numbers are off the charts (i.e. zone rating). He's the total package and makes watching this team so much more fun.

SWEEEET. Very happy to see this. I'm sure a few of my fellow Alums that live in Cincy with me will be frequenting this more than a few times. Thanks for the heads up!

Comment 25 Apr 2014

I definitely do think it's funny to see people's reaction to LaRosa's that are born and raised in Cincy. I was born and raised here and still live here and still get a hankering for it every once in a while. It's probably more nostalgic than anything but their pizza is very unique tasting(the sauce mainly). By no means is it garbage or anything. It's a little pricey but they have a deal for 11.99 for a two topping large that is reasonable. Also get Slices for Strikes (free small 4 topping pizza) at the Reds games when the Reds strike out 11 batters so that's pretty bad ass. To each their own, but I'll continue to eat it. Pro tip: put some salt on it. Sounds weird but for whatever reason, it makes it so much better. I don't do that to any other pizza I have ever had.

Stainbrook has a knee injury right now and may not even be available in the tournament. He's their 3rd leading scorer and leading rebounder. If he is out, the experience/talent level drops off and there isn't much depth. They have a good young guy in Reynolds but I could see him getting in foul trouble easily. Agreed on Christon as I think he would be a tough guard but I'm confident in Craft guarding him personally. I honestly think this would be a good matchup for us.

Comment 13 Jan 2014

I think the big knocks on Q have followed him throughout his career so far at OSU. He wasn't as highly ranked as he could have been coming out of HS because he had a lack of passion/intensity and some even questioned his love of the game. I think that might be hyperbole personally, but I do see his lack of intensity on the defensive side of the ball alot more clearly than the offensive side. He often doesn't box anyone out and the opposing offense consequently gets multiple offensive rebounds (i.e. Payne for MSU's two monster put backs). You would think that the personality of the two seniors on this team (Craft and Smith Jr.) would possibly influence Q in some way, but it doesn't seem to be the case so far. There is no doubt the guy has a high ceiling and the talent is there, hopefully he can put it all together.

Comment 03 Jan 2014

Totally agree with this. There's a reason bowl practices are brought up by the coaches alot as being beneficial. I think they find a way to fix the scheme and taylor it to the Clemson Offense. They will get some seasoning for the D-backs that will have been tested constantly in practice by one of the most dynamic offenses in the country. Cautiously optimistic about this game.

Comment 09 Dec 2013

Amen brother. Glad someone else had the balls to say it because I think it's pretty clear that the DB play has regressed throughout the year. Losing Bryant hurt no doubt, but you can't say that would contribute to an absolute shit show when it comes to covering the pass. Coombs is ultimately responsible and I see no positive development out of these guys. Everyone loves him for fiery personality (me included), but his coaching leaves me underwhelmed.

Comment 20 Sep 2013

Last paragraph is hilarious. My sense of humor to a T. Nice one man.

Comment 11 Sep 2013

Here you go Fear. It's towards the middle. Meyer is quoted saying it was a pass all the way. I agree with you though. Looked like a run to me, but maybe Braxton had in his head that he was going to do whatever he could to get the 1st with it being 4th down and all.

Comment 11 Sep 2013

I think we can all agree that questioning someone's durability is NOT the same as questioning someone's pain tolerance/toughness. We are going to question why Braxton seems to be getting hurt on a more frequent basis these last two years. It is only natural. I just hope we can do that without having to always preface the fact that we aren't questioning his character or will to play.

Comment 11 Sep 2013

It's a great question. However, I read somewhere that the play call was actually a pass and Braxton ran because he knew we needed the 1st and it was the only play that was available to him to make at the time. I'll try to find whatever article it was that said it.

Comment 30 Aug 2013

Glad I'm not the only one! Absolutely it's nostalgia coming through. But I actually liked how it was totally different than any other burrito you could get out there.

Comment 30 Aug 2013

I think it's safe to say from the multiple comments on this thread, that LaBamba's was universally loved by drunk students (and im sure non-drunk ones alike) at 2AM. As I stated above, they gave you some small plastic ramekin filled with delicious goodness that you poured on your burrito as you ate it. Whatever the hell that stuff was, it was awesome.

Awesome Skully DJ btw. One of my favorites in recent memory. Thanks!

It's not that your comment was "out of line", it's just that I'm not sure who annointed you comment police. The site polices itself. We don't need hall monitors. We already have Mods and staff. Just sayin :)

Comment 30 Aug 2013

I loved that place! Was there my whole time there from 2000-2004. Ashame they closed cause whatever that sauce/salsa stuff they gave you with your burrito "as big as your head" was like crack.

Comment 08 Aug 2013

I guessed Billy Price on the other thread and was way off. Lo and behold, a young man that went to my High School takes the honor. Happy for a fellow Panther! Congrats Joe!

Comment 24 Jul 2013

Love seeing people making the Ted Ginn Jr. comparisons because I honestly thought that when watching the highlight reel. He definitely has some similarities in how he runs. He obviously has a ways to go to prove he's on Teddy's level, but you can't help but be excited for the potential game-breaking ability this kid seems to possess. Hope he tears it up as a Buckeye!
