  • SPORTS MOMENT: Ted Ginn's punt return for TD against those bastards from Ann Arbor in 2004. I had been down for a few months since the death of my father, followed by a really disappointing football season for the Buckeyes. That glorious win against the scUMmers felt so good. The sun was shining again.

Why can't they just admit that given the extremely limited number of meaningful games between teams in the power 5 conferences, it is a farce to automatically assume, year in and year out, that the SEC is always the best conference, and its champion always the best team in college football?  In fact, the SEC has exploited this myth by refusing every year to play hardly any meaningful inter-conference games until the bowls.

Is the SEC the best conference most years, at least recently? Probably. But can the national media at least be objective and not give them every possible benefit of the doubt without any tangible evidence?

Those commercials piss me off, because they same horrific CHEESY tune playing in the background of every one.

Professional all-star games in order of significance/watchability:

1) MLB.  If you care about baseball at all it's a pretty good game.  The fact that it's during the middle of the season (and there's NOTHING else to watch) and baseball with its pitcher vs batter duel just lends itself to an all-star game.

2) NBA. Team defense suffers in all-star games where teams are thrown together, but defense doesn't matter much in the NBA anyway.  This is still a pretty good game most of the time.

3) NHL: I love hockey but this game sucks because it's just a scoring fest (see above).

4) NFL: Unless you are in Hawaii on vacation and have free tickets, this is a complete waste of time.  Football is a game that requires massive effort and motivation, and none of the players in this game even want to be there.

Letterman's interview was as pathetic as I expected- a combination of uninteresting questions and failing attempts at being funny.  Props to Urban for taking the bullet and taking advantage of an opportunity to get the Ohio State brand out there in a positive way, even if it meant appearing on that dolt's show.

Wow. That takes a special kind of lowlife to create a fake twitter account of a high school kid.

I might start to like the Ducks a little if we happened to beat them by 4 or 5 touchdowns.

"Khakied douche-canoe" is nicely descriptive and accurate.

Comment 06 Jan 2015

Yep, even though there are fewer people watching than would be on a Saturday, just more TV sets tuned to the game which is what the ratings depend on.  The reason being that if it was a Saturday there would be watch parties with multiple people per set.  The typical Monday scenario is a dude by himself watching in his man cave.

I don't know about this but I can say with certainty we were 2012 B1G conference champions though.

The next month will be interesting to see how Hairball can turn round their current recruiting class. I'm not buying the "even Hoke could recruit to michigan" argument. Brady Hoke though has one advantage in recruiting compared to Hairball - he's not an arrogant dickhead.

You must live in Ohio like me. Love Ramzy's eclectic bourbon recommendations but in Ohio they are not easy to obtain.  Most Kentucky craft distillers have no interest in dealing with the bureaucratic nonsense of the Ohio Liquor Commission.
