I actually really like JT's chances. Mainly because he has 2 (hopefully 3) games at the end of the year to catapult to the top of the voting. Michigan State, Michigan and hopefully B1G Championship game will provide a huge spotlight for him. Recent winners have all had the late season surge to win the award.

I think on every "Next Big 12 Team" story/post I have said Cincy is a perfect fit for the conference. But what should worry OSU more than Cincy is the influx of other Big 12 teams into Ohio. There is a reason why Ohio State has been successful in the DMV and NY/NJ areas recently. Adding Rutgers and Maryland opened up a line of communication in those areas for other schools (i.e. Ohio State). Now you can go into a parent's living room and tell them how they will be able to see their kids play on a regular basis because the TV networks will cover the games and you will (likely) have a home game they can drive to every other year.

Cincy isn't going to become a powerhouse by joining the Big12. But, teams like Oklahoma and Texas would love to try and lay some roots in Ohio.

I would be down again. I'm still upset that my team fell apart at the end of the season.

As glad as I am about the success of OSU recruiting, I hate the constant over-hype many Ohio State fans place on new recruits. Will they be good? Probably. But as we have noticed in the past 3+ years there is a ton of depth on the roster and it is highly unlikely that a true Freshman will see significant playing time.

I think Jalin Marshall made the right decision to leave and that he was clearly our second best receiver last year (way ahead of Braxton).

I too hate when people take the easy jabs at Michigan or Penn State or really any other fan base. I think fans should be better than that and just beat them on the field. Also something about glass houses.

My guess is that he might be covered under Baylor's attorneys. Depends a good amount on the separation agreement he had when fired. His thought is that Baylor's attorneys may push more blame onto him if possible. However it is extremely rare that a judge wouldn't allow an individual defendant to have his own counsel.

I feel as though it is going to get worse before it gets better (if it ever does) for Baylor. It will be interesting to see if his son is promoted to HC.

Yep. Just double checked. We picked it up on Hotwire for a pretty good price given the quality and location.

Thanks for the updated listed. We are staying at the Kenzie Hotel so downtown spots is where we will likely focus. The Cubs have day games on Saturday and Sunday so we might head up to Wrigleyville to hang out a bit before the game. We don't have any specialize itinerary so its basically a go where ever we want kind of weekend.

Yea I live in downtown-ish Columbus so not really out of my element. Plus we found cheap flights so we won't even have a car up there. Between the gas/parking/maintenance check up the flight should be faster and easier so long as TSA doesn't take forever to get through.

Making the trip up this weekend with the Roommate. I fully intend on eating at every location listed and providing a detailed report when I come out of my food coma.

A buddy's dad used to smoke whole hogs for people. Not sure exactly what he would charge for it but usually during the summer it seemed like he was doing one a week or so. I would guess he made enough money to pay off the smoker in one summer.
