If you haven't had a chance, check out Amon Amarth. Viking metal is better than most things. 

Metallica, Soundgarden, and Korn are huge headliners, but I'm a bit disappointed in the undercard.

The USA Today/NWCA Coaches poll is the ranking compilation from a handful of coaches across the country. I believe the other two are the rankings of a very few (or possibly just one) people that cover the sport for their respective sites. 

The team rankings don't really have much impact on any of the actual season, but they can help sell tickets and generate hype. Individual rankings can actually help a wrestler earn a wild card berth into the NCAA tournament if they don't automatically qualify.

I've heard rumors that he's recovering from an off-season surgery, but he should be ready to go for either Missouri or the CKLV early in December. If the recent Indians season can teach us anything, it's that you shouldn't rush stars back from surgeries (looking at you, Michael Brantley).

Not sure about Bo, but this isn't out of the ordinary for the Buckeyes to sit a star early in the season in a winnable dual meet. It's not ideal, but I'm not going to argue with Tom Ryan's logic.

Everything off of White Pony is outstanding. I've seen the Deftones four times ( 2 with Chi and 2 since his accident with Sergio) and their live show is so intense. Chino's singing has really improved since he's dropped some weight and can catch his breath. The new album Gore is taking a bit of time to grow on me, but Hearts/Wires is outstanding, as is the track with Jerry Cantrell.

Daton seems like he's very close with his family. Based solely on that, and the fact that he hasn't called me to tell me his intentions, I think he'll stay close to home and go to Oklahoma State. With that said, he could be a critical piece in the Buckeye machine for years to come.

Here's the link for the Buckeyes 2016-17 schedule.

If you could only pick one match to attend all year, the February 3rd match at the Schott against Penn State should be outstanding. The Buckeyes and Nittany Lions should be among the top 3 or 4 teams at the NCAA tournament, so this match will feature lots of excellent matchups. Missouri will be tough, but my under the radar pick will be Rutgers, who comes to Columbus on January 8.
