I am looking at this positively for the Browns. They saw what they had in some minicamps and decided they could go on without Hartline. Hartline will likely catch on somewhere, and wherever that is will likely win more games than the Browns, so win-win.
the CAVS also just ran out of bodies in the finals. They didn't have competent players to substitute in and ran delly to the point of dehydration. Simply having two more players in the rotation would've made a huge difference. And yes, JR is a different player when he isn't the second scoring option.
I think your on to something. CAVS also need to run whoever Curry is guarding through a bunch of screens and tire him out on D.
I don't understand it either. Curry isn't blistering fast and Delly guards him well. Curry's offense was limited until the Cavs were completely exhausted. Not saying Curry wont score but he can be limited by forcing him to run after Kyrie and being guarded by shump and delly for 20 some minutes a game.
Of course nothing will happen. A school only gets in NCAA trouble if it self reports.
If I could pick two team to be in the B1G it would be Texas and Florida State. Think of how many more great matchups would happen weekly. FSU would be in the East and Texas in the West. Thus, Texas v. Iowa, MSU, Nebraska, Wisconsin, Minnesota, etc. Pretty good games. Meanwhile, FSU v. Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State. The money would be insane and the B1G champ would never be left out of the playoff.
Miami and Toronto will both be missing their big men. KLove can have a suboptimal series and the CAVS will still out rebound either team by a significant margin. Anything can happen in a series but the Cavs should have little trouble with either of those teams, although I'd prefer they play Toronto.
I am so happy to no longer see LeBron pound the ball on the top of the floor and every one else stand around to look at him. James looks lighter and younger. He's getting same numbers from the reg season but on fewer shots and his D has been turned up a few notches.
I don't get this notion that somehow the Spurs and the Warriors are on another planet, particularly when the Cavs have looked phenomenal in the post season, and the Warriors have a hobbled Curry.Any team that comes out of the West is likely to have significantly less rest than the CAVS, and LeBron is still the NBA's best player. Furthermore, the CAVS took Warriors to six games with Love and Irving out, and several other players nursing injuries. Spurs and Warriors are good teams, but the Cavs have an excellent chance to beat either in the Finals.
Will good to have a smart hard working and sccurate qb that knows the system already in the fold if/when franchise qb is selected.
It is important to remember that Kiper and co simply don't have the access to player workouts, interviews, or a knowledge of team needs like the teams do. Every year there are "shocking" picks whether they be a guy Kiper think is too early or too late. Because Kiper and co don't have the the access that the teams have, I tend to trust the teams. For instance, I didn't expect the Browns to take Ogbah with #32 but have read they thought he was a top pass rusher.
In today's game you have to be able to throw, protect the passer, and get after the passer. The Browns bolstered their receiver corps, and made some great O-Line picks. I think the kid from Auburn is going to be a stud. I think the Browns drafted at least 3 starters by mid season at RT, WR, and LB, and many situational defenders (Scooby was worth the pick if for nothing but goal line situations and rushing the passer). Lets not forget that they picked up a talented but unproven cb from Miami for a 7th rounder. With the Browns' draft strategy they have good odds that there will be surprising starters/studs.
I too am skeptical of the QB but, I am going to trust Jackson here. He wants a prospect he thinks he can get something out of and who am I to doubt that. It was minimal cost. As has been mentioned. This team will have a bevy of high picks next year to add impact players.
Truth is that we won't know if this was a successful draft for years. However, the Browns strategy is encouragingly obvious: draft hard workers with big upsides, have faith they can be taught. I would've loved the team to grab a Buckeye or two, but it just didn't line up.
Bass, I think the Browns might agree with your qb assessment. I wouldn't be surprised if they are high on Cook or maybe even Hack. Seems like Hugh Jackson's comments hint that the Browns don't have the same view of the best qbs in this draft that everyone else has.
Das Boot looking good! He's had some time to develop would be great to have a consistent kicking threat this year.
'Shoe filling up nicely
Thanks for starting this thread! I need a dose of Buckeye football!
Funny, Washington was a DE when he first came here, as was Sprinkle.
Two years ago Dunn was the running back that Clarrett thought would win the starting job, not Elliot. Dunn is no slouch. Dunn hits the hole hard, I bet we see him shine this year.
People getting all sanctimonious haha

Yeah, ratting out a friend's private convo on social media is pretty bad. I wouldn't be sharing secrets with Russell anytime soon.
What's the point in being a famous professional athlete if you can't pick up women at clubs while engaged to a famous singer?
Im only half joking is there something between sarcasm font and standard?
I am surprised Jones hasn't been arrested for the multiple men he killed in this snuff film.
I encourage tweeting about it. Use #HonorMachoMan
I think the Arena District would be a great location for it.
I am not a wrestling fan. However, I always enjoyed Macho Man. He was one of those larger than life types. A Macho Man statue could be such a fun dynamic action-packed feature. It would be great for the city of Columbus and I think it could be financed through private donors.
