Happy birthday Eleven Warriors!! Thanks for being my go-to Buckeyes site. 

One criticism- "Eight years ago some dudes met in a dank cave" is not a very nice way to refer to one of your parents' basements.

I haven't been impressed with Great Lakes the last couple years. Either the recipe changed or everyone else is getting better. Thirsty Dog has them beat IMO (rumors always floating about how that happened)

Comment 13 Aug 2014

I like them but I don't have them regularly. The Pumpking is my favorite, but 2XIPA is good and the 2XMAS Ale was a pleasant change of pace from the Thirsty Dog and Great Lakes Christmas Ales.

Fall seasonals are my favorite. Aside from the ones you mentioned, Dogfish Head makes a good Punkin Ale and Blue Moon's is good too.

So Marshon got the pick off Cardale and Gareon picked off Barrett, right?

And Red #2 was Dontre streaking down the right sideline?

Also, Jalin with the nice catch and turn. 

What a catch by Devin Smith. This has me excited.

You don't usually see non-committable offers handed out in Ohio. He was the only OL in Ohio to receive an offer. He's a legacy (father played at OSU) and I think the staff would have taken him.

Too hot in the hot tub! Burned myself. Make it cooler! Good God! Heyyyyy

Comment 14 Jul 2014

I think barring injury he is the most likely option to lead the team in rushing. Like others I believe his carries will decrease, but due to the stable of running backs and the division of carries at RB I believe Miller would only need >750 yards to lead the team. Unless Elliott, Smith, etc. breaks out and nails down the RB1 spot, I think it's going to be difficult to beat Miller who is out there every snap.

This was great lol. 

Here's an update from Birm at Elite11.

I enjoyed your column very much Kyle. The Hilliard recruitment was not an easy one to follow. All of the visits he took over the last year+ to campuses like Notre Dame, Michigan, Oklahoma, Alabama, etc., had be convinced that he was more likely to leave the state of Ohio than he was to stay in it. Little did I know that he was essentially looking for reasons not to go to Ohio State.

The Elliotts seem like such genuine people. Ohio State got much more than a great player when they received his signature last year.

Had LeBron committed to the franchise for more than a couple years at a time perhaps it would have been more attractive for free agents. Ferry will have to own his role in failing to draft and surround LeBron with quality players, but let's not pretend LeBron didn't play a role in that. He was talking pending free agency over two seasons before he was set to hit the market!

Hopefully Jefferson decides before FNL. Peete could come with Aquinas teammates and OSU would be more likely to push if Van is out of the picture. Peete is 6-5 and someone I'd like in this class

Comment 30 Jun 2014

The general feeling is that Ohio State has the RBs (realistic options) ranked Harris, Scott, Weber. The impression is that OSU could get any of the three. Personally I'd be surprised if we take more than one RB as Curtis Samuel was moved to RB and we are generally solid depth-wise at the position, but a guy like LJ Scott may be too good to turn away if Harris commits. And it'd be tough to turn away Weber and improve your stock in that state up north. So, to answer your question, I don't know if we would take Scott and Weber if Harris were to go elsewhere. 

Also there is always the possibility that Jerome Baker plays RB instead of LB as some have him ranked higher than Scott at RB anyway.

I think I know what happened.. And not going to lie I photoshopped Evan Turner's face on Kramer's but I was afraid people wouldn't make the connection.

Draft Wiggins. Sign LeBron and Hawes or, if LeBron won't come, Chandler Parsons and Hawes. Parsons a good player and Houston cannot afford to sign him to a relatively large offer sheet. 

Comment 23 Jun 2014

What?? Wiggins is 6-8 and like 200 pounds while Parker is 6-8 250. Parker is an obvious 3 while Wiggins can play the 2 or 3. Also, LeBron essentially played the 4 for Miami a lot of the time so I don't think he really matters all that much for either guy. Take the player that you think will best help your team. I think it's Wiggins (especially after Parker reportedly tanked Cavs workout intentionally), but as long as they don't take some guy out of left field I'll be happy.
