Football: Ohio State,

  1. whichever team can pull an upset that will help the Buckeyes move up in the polls (see the last few weeks of the 2007 season for that origin) 
  2. anyone playing Notre Dame 
  3. anyone playing Purdue (they've beaten the Buckeyes far too many times for me to forgive and forget)
  4. any non-conference cupcake playing an SEC school late in the season

Wrestling

  1. anyone but Iowa
  2. Penn State (great attacking, aggressive style)
  3. Edinboro- great singlets, tough kids that peak at the NCAA tournament
  4. Any team that has Ohioans on the roster
  5. Virginia Tech- see #4

If I had to guess, Rocky Jordan is probably the most likely to sign with Ohio State based on his brothers being on the team. Romero sounds like he really likes the program, and those that know him have nothing but great things to say about him. Steveson and Fix have ties elsewhere, so they're a bit of a stretch. Lee is from Pennsylvania and I'm sure Cael Sanderson has him on speed dial, though I'm told the Buckeyes think they gave him the best offer of all interested schools. 

Time will tell, though the Buckeyes certainly have a great foundation with Snyder, Tomasello, and Jordan Squared. Factor in Myles Martin who has yet to wrestle a full varsity schedule, and the future is bright in Columbus.

That rumor started circulating around the same time that Kyle announced he was taking an Olympic redshirt. Nobody has a difinitive answer, but it seems like he's giving enough hints at returning to the Buckeyes.

reminds me a lot of Crosses, one of Chino's many side bands. I'm a fan, but I could use more of the heavier tracks like Doomed User.

White Pony and ATF are awesome, but I still love the selftitled album. Needles and Pins is one of my favorite songs by the Deftones and When Girls Telephone Boys makes me want to run through walls.

I read the book, but haven't seen the movie. Fantastic action. My mother-in-law showed me the neighborhoods where some of the main action took place when she was young. Very interesting for sure.

NCAA Wrestling Championships (Cleveland is hosting in 2018)

Buckeyes in the Rose Bowl

An Indians game with my dad and my kids. My dad used to get us Indians tickets when I was a kid and Jacobs Field was always sold out. He'd take us to see players that we were certain would be in the HOF. We saw Griffey (and probably young ARod) with the Mariners, Cal Ripken, and the 1st TB series in Cleveland. Sandy Alomar hit a walk-off grand slam to beat the Devil Rays that day during his amazing '97 season. Everyone should have memories like that one. My kids are still a few years too young to take in the Tribe with us. 

A UFC event. I covered the last Strikeforce event before the UFC buyout (Henderson vs Feijao) and Bellator 66 in Cleveland, but I've never been to a UFC event live. 

US Powerlifting Nationals. My brother is competing for a spot on the National Team in bench press, and I'd love to see him do his thing in person.

Good call. I was able to get my hands on many of those when I taught preschool. I played them during nap time for my class and it didn't put me to sleep, largely because I was listening to music by my favorite bands. Rockabye Baby did the following: Queens of the Stone Age, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, AC/DC, Metallica, Queen, and The Beatles. I haven't heard the Springsteen version, but I'm sure that's a good one, as well as Sublime.
