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.

Comment 26 May 2016

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

Comment 26 May 2016

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.

A lot of people think on air television talent is overpaid (and in many cases I think it is) but you don't often see the behind the scene preparation the really good ones have to put in to be great.

Mike Tirico was on the DP show the other day talking about how he rarely watches movies because he has to study for the next event he is covering. Gruden covers one game a week but some of the main play by play guys can see 3 different games in three different sports a week.

Bearcat football isn't a large program market in the sense that its only people from Cincy or alums that follow it. But Cincinnati itself is the 36th largest TV market and the city of Cincinnati has a national appeal.

If I'm a conference who is looking to add: 1) a good school; 2) solid athletics; and 3) more tvs to raise more money for the school (i.e. the Maryland and Rutgers effect) then Cincinnati is a viable option of the schools that may be available.

Comment 11 May 2016

UC and Houston are not terrible options. Both relatively large markets for media and name recognition. UC gets teams into Ohio recruiting and give WVU a close "rival".

The main issue is the Longhorn Network is a terrible idea. A Big 12 network has more appeal and can make a lot more money for the schools.

Because he was the second best receiver on a top tier team and is now going to get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to play football next year. Do you actually think he becomes a first round pick by staying in school another year?

Comment 28 Apr 2016

What do you mean next year? We have 6 more rounds to do.
