1. Eddie (G.O.A.T. that I have watched in college football. Perfect mix of size, speed, agility.)

2. Reggie Bush (by far one of the most electric players to play in the NCAA)

3. Troy Smith (maybe not the best stats wise but as far as leader on the field he was one of the best)

Honorable mention: Barry Sanders. Didn't get to watch him in college much but I could only imagine how good he was.

Worst is probably Jason White. Both undeserving and really not good.

This team is extremely frustrating mainly because they legitimately could have only a couple of losses if they would have played a full game instead of just a good half/bad half. Whey they are on I legit think they are a top 10-ish team in the country. However, when they are off they are really off. If they can put it together and string some games together they could make a run. Final Four may be a stretch though. I see this teams ceiling as an elite 8 team but likely sweet 16 team depending on their draw.

Well that spot is currently just a vacant lot. So it needs developed. But to your point there isn't a lot of opportunity to develop where the stadium is right now. A bar or restaurant is not going to move next to the stadium just to service customers once a week at most for an event there. The Arena District has events throughout the year on a regularly packed schedule. Plus, as mentioned in other posts, the stadium is horrible to get to as it is right now. There really isn't a way to attach to the fairgrounds as that has to remain a relatively bare area.

I have always thought the location where the casino was to go (basically the end of Nationwide Boulevard) would be perfect for a soccer stadium. It would be great to incorporate the two rivers merging there in the design. It would also help develop more business along Nationwide. And if Columbus every had light rail or any train servicing the area you have tracks that could take you straight to the stadium. It would allow for a Green Street Hooligans feel.

Perhaps he hasn't paid his troll toll recently.

Comment 02 Mar 2015

You beat me to it. I am with out as a "loss" of a game that we didn't need. Although I would have taken the Bowl Ban against Florida in the Gator bowl and we can keep the Sugar Bowl win. ;)

Comment 02 Mar 2015

Good topic. If I can make a play on words my "loss" would be the 2012 season chance to play ND in the Championship game as the only undefeated teams. I think we would have beat ND and we would be sitting at two NC in 3 years and favorites next year.

But more to the question of an actual game for me its 06.

Comment 02 Mar 2015

As much as I love Craft he offensive game is pretty bad. And for the NBA the offensive side of the ball is more important during regular season games. I wouldn't be surprised to see him be brought up for a playoff run. It seems like they usually like a good perimeter defender to be on the bench. This is especially true if his rights are still with the Warriors. A lot of good 1 and 2 guards in the West.

Remote Control. The times when it is lost are some of the darkest times in my life.

Comment 01 Mar 2015

Who seem like the most dynamic kid in the '16 class (i.e. who gets your Kirk label out of this class)?

Bonus Questions: Do you think Amir could still drop 40s that are taped to his hands during a game of Edward Fortyhands?

This topic is right up my alley... I pride myself in being a TV show hipster. I won't resay some of the ones already mentioned. Here are some of my best:

The Black Donnellys (absolutely fantastic show that never took off)

Flash Forward (Would have loved to see how they work that series with enough time)

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip (Another Sorkin 'probably too smart for a big audience' shows)

Merlin (Nerd pick here... really pretty good show but they messed up its release).

Comment 27 Feb 2015

For someone not from the NE part of this great state can someone fill me in a bit on the transferring. It seems like this occurs a lot in NW Ohio as compared to a lot of other places in Ohio. Is there any reason for this or am I only noticing this because the bigger named guys who transfer and a lot of OSU recruits come out of that area?

As for Clark... not the worst backfield in Ohio. Also probably a good thing for OSU that one of its main peer recruiters is with Sibley.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

I've never really understood these situations. Either Baylor could give the kid a full ride football scholarship (which would include housing) or he could take out financial aid for an amount that would cover housing like every other non-athlete student on campus. I get the NCAA (if they actually did something which they claim they haven't) is still dumb in general and there are 100 better ways to handle this matter but the fact that it allegedly happened doesn't make sense.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

I was at the game. Some Wisconsin fans next to me left about half way through the second quarter. Two young kids sat with their father. I kept telling the kids it wasn't too late to become Buckeye fans. I hope they took my advice.

Comment 25 Feb 2015

Philosophizing. Sometimes I just like to talk randomly about things whether it is a tv show or people watching or sports. I would maybe need someone to write down my thoughts because that seems like to much of a hassle. Plus some cute co-ed would read my thoughts 100 years from now in some college 101 course and think I'm deep.

Oh or golf. Maybe not professionally but just playing casual games when I feel like it.

Comment 20 Feb 2015

There is a relatively new place called Ethyl and Tank. Its on the corner of High and 13th. Not overly close but I really like their food. Wings and waffle fries and good beer prices. i went before a game earlier this year and it was a short car trip to park for the game.

Comment 13 Feb 2015

EGW reminds me a lot of Jalin. Early signee who was relatively quite because all of the other schools new he was OSU bound. Not enough hype about him the past year or so. He could be one of the better athletes on the team and that is saying quite a bit. I think once he gets locked into a position he will see the field by his sophomore year. I wouldn't be surprised to see him on the KO team as a freshman.
 

Comment 10 Feb 2015

Completely agree. The guy was just trying to protect one of his players. Both Weber and the rest of the Cass Tech community should be proud that they have a coach willing to stand up for the players and the school. I am sure that Urban, Alford and Coombs (the main recruiter for Cass Tech) have communicated with the coach and addressed the situation. Hopefully all parties were able to find a resolution to the issue.

I actually think this is a good way to get a better playoff without actually having 8 teams. If all major conferences do this you are going to (likely) have a top-25 match up (probably even top-15) match up for each division. In essences it is a de facto 8-10 team playoff which narrows down the field and everyone would have to win a legit match up at the end of the season to advance.

Comment 09 Feb 2015

Sully probably had the best season as a freshman but Oden was the most dominate player in college basketball that year when healthy. However, both guys had a better team around them as compared to Russell.

Comment 06 Feb 2015

Hypothetical for you Jake from Ohio State Farm:

Let's say I'm Armani Reeves and I have been battling issues with concussions. Prior to signing day I have a talk with the coaching and medical staff about my situation and I decide that I don't want to keep playing football because I don't want scrambled eggs for brains the rest of my life. Everyone is in agreement that it is the best for me and my future. However, because I like my teammates and the program I want to remain involved so nothing is announced that I am done with football. Then on NSD the staff has 25 spots available. However, since they know I'm not coming back (even though I'm still on scholarship) they have an extra spot available. Thus, the staff signs 26 recruits. Is this mean they are oversigned?

By your definition it does even though that doesn't make any sense in the real world application.
