  • SPORTS MOMENT: Sitting in the Superdome, awestruck, confetti falling, realizing that 85 Yards Through the Heart of the South happened and that the Buckeyes had done the improbable. Two days before I had posed with the Nick Saban statue in Tuscaloosa holding an Ohio flag. Later on Bourbon street a drunken fan would grab my shoulders and say "THAT happened! And WE were there!"

The Browns could use a pass rusher. Kruger's production has fallen off of a cliff. Bosa would probably be a good pass rushing OLB in a 3-4.

Browns could also use a RT. Decker is he's available in the early second would vastly improve the o-line.

In Dan's defense, I used to listen to his show in Miami and thought he did a great job calling out bs. Someone asked if the 2007 Patriots were better than the '72 Dolphins team, he stated that the 2007 Dolphins were better than the 72 team. He said "fans don't like the Ted Ginn draft pick, if he was playing in 1972 you woulda thought an alien had landed on the field!"


Also, Cam Newton is really good. I've been a Cam hater for a while but that guy is amazing.

Carrie Fisher was awful. Unbelievable as a general and ele the movie back. There was certainly some fun but thing were too easy for Rey. I look forward to Kylo turning into a real badass

I can't imagine a better hire. Meyer now has Fickell, Johnson, and Schiano to lean on which has to decrease his stress. He has nothing to worry about on D and can focus on fixing the O.

Also, I think Beck is going to figure some thing out. Meyer can concentrate on Beck. I think the guy has some tools and talent. He's going to be a good coach. Hopefully that begins next year.

Yes! And a key part of a championship D.

It's because of their fans. Many ND fans in Ohio. Hell there are Buckeye "fans" that also have ND gear. Something about that is gross to me. ND's fans have been claiming they are "back" for 2 decades. Fun team to clobber.

People do lots of different things on NYE but you are admitting that you used to go out on NYE. Big percentage of the population is doing something else but sitting on their couch (even younger you). Yes, there are old farts but that is only a percentage of the audience. This is going to kill the mid 20s to 30s market.

I am throwing a nice party with friends for NYE (avoids some of the issues you mentioned). My gf is looking forward to the opportunity to dress up. I won't be able to concentrate on CFP. If the Buckeyes were in, I am intensely watching that game and not causally watching it at a party.

Comment 06 Dec 2015

I won't be watching because its on NYE and I have better things to do than to watch a non-Buckeyes college football game. Putting the games on NYE is going to ensure the CFP loses millions of eyes. Coupled with no Ohio State and this CFP will do far worse than last year.

Also, why boycott CFP? The Buckeyes aren't entitled to shit. Ohio State made it's bed and now has to lie in it. Ohio State lost the one game it couldn't lose. Dems the breaks. Don't be a child about it.

Next year's team is going to look different. Kinda exciting. Hopefully Urban signs another Stan Drayton/Larry Johnson type home run. 

As for Beck, I am hopeful that he learned some lessons and will turn into a great play caller. The guys obviously has some potential. Herman was much better in year two than year one. Here's hoping that Beck improves too. I'd like to see the guy leave here after helping the team and get a hc gig too.

I. Agree I think people are giving too much credence to the strength of the loss. Ohio State stubbed it's toe to a good team. Beating Iowa does little to change that but does put two teams that played each other in. Personally, I think if msu makes it, the committee should exclude the Buckeyes ( though I don't think my opinion is widely shared)
