I would love to own and ride a motorcycle. I feel like I would be pretty safe, follow the law, and not take stupid chances, but what I cannot control is the other distracted driver - with little-man syndrome - in the jacked-up diesel, driving like a maniac (I know this is a generalization, and a dig, but I couldn't resist). I choose not to own/ride a motorcycle but I do not demonize those who do decide to own/ride a motorcycle. The same applies to bicycles as well. I personally have no need, or desire, to ride a bicycle on anything other than a (paved) bike trail, but I will not demonize those who choose to do so. I will do my best to drive without distractions and give them a wide-berth when passing them. I hope they will be smart cyclists and not be distracted as well and obey all traffic laws.

Why wait for facts when we can just start bitching and moaning about how every cyclist and car driver is crappy! All facts do is get in the way! Also, while we are waiting for the facts lets loot the local Walmart... to make a point about how crappy the whole situation is!!!

Most likely someone wasn't paying attention - Schiano or the cyclist - and caused an accident. Nothing was likely done with intent to harm. Please wait for the FACTS before judging!

Thanks!

Go Bucks and beat the bye week!

Edit: Nappy beat me to it!

There are more than two months until Missouri City, Texas, Ridge Point tight end Mustapha Muhammad is set to be on campus for an unofficial visit. 

The quote actually says "unofficial" visit... I am assuming he is allowed to take unofficial visits prior to his senior year, so you would still be correct about official visits.

I think by the time the Oklahoma game rolls around we will see a lot of changes to the 2-deep on the depth chart. A lot of "or's" will be gone and some of the walk-on's and non-scholarship players will slowly be replaced by higher recruited scholarship athletes. Remember, Urban Meyer has a Psychology degree from UC and is known to use it to motivate players. I think we are seeing some players listed on the initial 2-deep as a reward for hard work in camp.

I remember this game like it was yesterday! I had to watch it with  Florida Gators fan who happened to live in Ohio! Talk about gloating before the game... he shut up real quick after the Ginn TD but came back to life real quick! 

Me and my buddies were ecstatic after the Ginn TD but spent the rest of the game in shock... I remember thinking how awful our OL was and how dis-interested Troy Smith seemed.

Glad we have Urban now...

I agree... I was calling for Tom Herman's (founder of MENSA) job multiple times the first year or two and then the year of Barrett/Jones happened!

I think Beck was thrown into an impossible situation last year and - yes, I think Urban deserves some/most of the blame for last years struggle - it wasn't helped that Jones started over Barrett. I actually lay most of the blame for last years failures on Urban, but I do not hold a grudge. We are all human and make mistakes. My reasoning for blaming Urban more than Beck is twofold: 1). Beck was new and learning the system, and 2). Urban made the choice to go with Jones as well keep the OC down on the field. Once the changes were implemented - start Barrett and move the OC upstairs - we had huge success on the offensive-side of the ball.

I think Beck will be just fine as QB coach and he seems to be more the fine as a recruiter. 

*Go BUCKS!!!

Here is a thought... Wasn't last year the first year the browns scrimmaged in Ohio Stadium? Also, wasn't last year the first year the Buckeyes missed the College Football Playoffs? Coincidence? I think not!!!

We need to ban the browns from Ohio Stadium!

Here is my confession:

I am born and bred in Ohio! I love Ohio State sports but I hate, with a passion, anything to do with Cleveland sports! I will root for Michigan to win a game (not against the Buckeyes) before I will root for a Cleveland team. I was born in Cincinnati and grew up near Zanesville. Have never rooted for a Cleveland team and never will.

I am a Cincinnati Bengals fan, and Chicago Bulls fan - thanks to my uncle who is a Bulls fan and for all I know he was a front runner, and I am an Atlanta Braves fan - I remember watching the 1995 World Series and saw Greg Maddux pitch and instantly became a Braves fan. I guess i believe in spreading the sports grief around and not putting all my "eggs" in one basket! 

I also think LeBron James is a terrible teammate and would never want him on my team!

That is my confession and I do not apologize for it!

Go Buckeyes!!!

Whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty? What we have here is a guy slinging accusations, against Schiano/Bradley, without being able to prove them. It's really pissing me off how much we are willing to prosecute people in the court of public opinion before we have all the facts - and I am not just talking about the Schiano/Bradley situation. The fact is we don't really know the facts. Let the lawyers and other investigators gather the information and bring it to a Grand Jury or DA and let them decide whether or not to prosecute.

Just for the hell of it I tweeted at Clay Travis to ask him if a "B1G team would make the playoff this year or if a B1G team was already eliminated"!

Wanted an expert opinion!

Birm, It has been a privilege to get to "know" you via "The Hurry-Up" these last few years. Good luck and God bless! I look forward to hearing where you land! Don't be a stranger. Maybe you could pop in every once in a while and give us some hints on some big-time recruits! See ya around!
