A lot of it comes down to money. I think Rutgers will improve as they start to get more and more of that B1G money. Maryland has recently had the UA backing to help support its major sports (football and MBB). If you have the right amount of money you can hire the right coaches and upgrade your facilities. That will help attract players from the tri-state area.

I would announce my top five in no particular order (although they would be in alphabetical order). Visits to Miami, Texas, UCLA (much prettier campus than USC), Arizona State, and one SEC school (tough call between Ole Miss, Auburn or Bama). Multiple unofficials to Ohio State. Sign with Ohio State during visit during OSU/Michigan game.

I robbed a grand slam walk off to win the conference championship in baseball in high school. Full extension/partial crash into the centerfield fence. That was pretty sweet.

Hit back to back home runs with myself. Jacked the first one right now the right field line but the umpire called it foul (it wasn't it curved around). The catcher said that it was luck and I said not to throw that again. The pitcher did and the next pitch I hit about 375 to right center.

And I've been on Sportscenter Top-10 and coverage for NCAA basketball tournament.

The one thing that hurts Bosa is the style of offense that is played today. Not as much 5-7 step drops in the college game. In the 90's it seemed like that was all you would see in the B1G. If he can put up 10-12 this year that will be very impressive.

Comment 17 Mar 2015

Agree with you on that point. I think they are going to have a bit of a rough go of it next year. I could easily see 4-5 losses. My point was more along the lines of even if they lose every game but beat OSU their fans will think Harbaugh is the greatest coach ever.

Comment 16 Mar 2015

I think in reality it would hurt their team but as far as perception if they beat OSU and/or MSU many followers will then bow down to the great Harbaugh and claim he is going to "own" that other team for 100 years.

Once.

A really good indie movie that is based with music. The musical is coming to Columbus this year and would like to try and get to it. Glen Hansard (of The Frames) has a really impressive voice.

Comment 16 Mar 2015

Die Hard (I think my dislike is partially based in people saying its a Christmas movie)

Jackass movies (just not my type of humor)

Clint Eastwood movies; Particularly Gran Torino. ( I get he is a bad ass but its a bit overplayed for me.

Depends on how you look at it. From the outside looking in (i.e. a rational person) beating Utah is a bigger game because Michigan should lose to MSU and OSU next year because they are simply not as good. Utah and Michigan is a pretty even matchup and one I actually think Utah will win.

From a Michigan fan perspective they would probably take mediocre year if that includes a win over OSU as they can say this is the right coach going to lead them back to the promise land.

Comment 12 Mar 2015

I haven't been a big fan of the coach since he missed out on Julie "The Cat" Gaffney. By far the best recruit to come out of Eden Hall in years. Instead, it appears from his weight comments, the team is full of cake eaters.

Comment 11 Mar 2015

I just want to see this team get a little confidence going into the tournament. It seems like they are quick to start doubting their abilities in games for some reason. Hopefully if they can catch a little fire and get a good seed they can make a run.

Comment 11 Mar 2015

I really hate people who get into their cars in a parking lot but then take 5 minutes to actually back out of the spot. Do you not see me with my blinker on waiting for your spot you ignorant asshole.

Oh and speaking of parking lots.... people who walk right down the middle of the lane. Don't mind me driving 1mph behind you as you waddle to your shitty car.

My memory of Vets Memorial is taking the bar exam there so I'm ok with it being rubble haha. 

But the new memorial (an actual memorial) is a pretty sharp design. Plus it fits into the idea of everything being moved to the convention center (which is also undergoing a new renovation). 

Comment 04 Mar 2015

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.

Comment 04 Mar 2015

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.

Comment 03 Mar 2015

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.

Comment 03 Mar 2015

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. ;)
