What is this, LSU?
My dream of an OSU-Cincy-Xavier-Dayton final four is deferred another year.
Starting to seem like it may not ever happen.
Just for the record, because I have to say it everytime I see their names, we'd have pummeled those two Oregon-lites.
Don't get it. Very strange.
It's okay. My Bearcats like their traditional second round exit.
Yup, sure did. Jumped up to chest bump/hug his son who plays on the team and popped it when he landed.
So OSU avoided Kentucky in the first round. This starts well.
***EDIT: Dammit, Knarcisi, beat me to it****
Vitale is no longer fun.
I also can't stand Rafferty's "Onions!" or "And they go mantoman"
I'm a Cincy bball fan who follows OSU as a second bball team (I know, I know, but I grew up in Cincy watching Buckeye football and CIncy bball. I didn't even know Cincy had football until I was older. Arguably they don't.) and keeps an eye on Xavier, I HATE HATE how often it seems like OSU gets put in the same section as Cincy or Xavier.
Also, stay away from cocaine
I don't think I could be happier than having Harbaugh as TSUN's coach.
He's the one who had the brutal leg break. Glad for him that he made it back to the tournie.
Am I the only one that thinks Tracy Wolfson is way hot?
After 5 years of marriage followed by a divorce, I can also say that staying single is a winner financially
Agreed with everyone here- you want to pay down debt as fast as possible.
BUT- never give away free money. If your employer matches, make sure you are putting into your 401k an amount that maximizes what your employer will match. Then make debt priority one with what is left.
I will third no debt in any form.
Just think of it like this- if you can't pay for it now, you can't afford it.
Some people will make an exception for a house. I can see the logic in that. I still wouldn't, but there are ways you can play it that make it a good call.
This game is sick fun.
Our two biggest football rivals of late putting on a bball show.
I have sympathy for Duck fans. In general, they're pretty cool. They thought they had finally made the big time and had the rug yanked out from under them. Now everybody assumes all the clichés about them are true- can't beat power teams, can't win big games, etc.
I felt much the same after LSU best us, and for years I've had to hear the general college football fan assumption that OSU lost all big games ad got beat by anybody with speed. It wasn't true, but truth didn't matter. It was soul crushing year after year.
I feel for the Ducks. Hope they get one some day. Against somebody else, of course, but still.
My team is the Bengals, and they may very well select from the Mexican college system or the Euro college system. There is no way to predict.
I assume you meant parity, but I like it the way you said it too.
Every championship, in every sport, is butt ass hard.
I'm 43, almost 44. I've rooted for teams consistently in football (pro and college), basketball (pro and college), baseball, hockey, and soccer.
There have been some rooting changes over the years due to living in different cities, but that's basically 7 sports over about 33 years- 231 seasons. You can mess with that math a little since there were some years I didn't follow specific sports, but for simplicity let's call it 231 years.
In 231 years, here is the complete list of times my teams have won a championship:
Ohio State football 2002
Ohio State football 2014
Cincinnati Reds 1990
That's it. Three times in 231 seasons of rooting. Championships are butt ass hard.
Timing is an important part of life my friend.
In this case you've chosen the wrong century to be a Michigan fan trolling Ohio State fans, for example. The years all start with "20__" now. Have for awhile. In fact, people born in 2000 will be getting driver's licenses soon.

Yes, the guy that won the Heisman Trophy for being the best player in college football was one of the best we've seen in college.
I forget, how'd he play against Michigan?
I would change that slightly. Also, for fun, let's add Krenzel since we're talking championship winning QBs.
Maneuverability: XBrax (by a huge margin), JT, Troy, Cardale, Krenz (although arguably Krenzel over Cardale)
Arm Strength: Cardale, Troy, XBrax, Krenz, JT
Accuracy: JT, Troy, Cardale, Krenz, XBrax
Intangibles: Krenz, JT (see Penn State), Cardale (see 3rd down conversion rate vs Bama), tie Troy/XBrax
add in Reads/Decision Making: JT, Troy, Krenzel, Cardale, XBrax
Its certainly interesting. You have to take into account what offensive system you want to run too, though. For example, if RichRod is your coach the choice is Brax, no hesitation. A Georgia Tech system? Brax. A Baylor fire away system that goes deep a lot? Probably Cardale or Troy.
I think the two best all around are Troy and JT. The best athletic style/frequent runner is Brax. The best straight pocket only passer is probably Cardale but we haven't seen enough of him. Best willpower and just don't lose-ability is Krenzel and JT.
Seriously, you can't go wrong though. Really can't. Now add in Pryor. And Boeckman deserves more credit than he gets.
The twenty-first century has been pretty good for Buckeye quarterbacks.
