I've always been in favor of cities, counties, and even the state should demand ownership shares in the team if the team wants to extort money out of them for new stadiums. Sports fans get to caught up in the team's name, just because it says a particular city doesn't mean it represents the city. It's just the city they play in, a place holder. The nicknames of the team is what matters to the owners, where they play doesn't matter. You don't get to be a billionaire by being stupid.

Akron looks like the better team thus far. Ohio State looks like individuals that happen to be dressed up the in the same uniform.

so, if Akron beats OSU that means...Akron, Xavier, and Dayton all have better teams then OSU in the state.

Competitive spirit and attitude should be a bigger priority in recruiting the right guys. Seems that this has been a bad body language team the last two years since Craft graduated. There's just something missing. Talented guys.

What drives me crazy is their total lack of effort and laziness when they screen. They don't set solid screens therefore guys don't get open looks too make shots. The defense is always up in their face and they never get easy offense. There's no urgency on offense, no sharp cuts. Just a stupid weave out top. No offense towards the basket. Staleness has set in this program. Matta's total lack of interest in offense shows, over the years he's had first round NBA guys so they made their own offense but with a team like this you need competent system to create open shots. Austin Grandstaff could have been helpful on this team but he was soft. They need natural shooters which we don't have.

4.6 for Jalin Marshall, Braxton a 4.5. Mayock said there's no way Marshall should have come out. Miller is quicker than fast

So, technically the Green Bay Packers won only two Super Bowls? One with Farve and won with Rogers. When they beat the Raiders and Cheifs it wasn't called the Super Bowl, do those first two count less then the ones with Farve and Rodgers? 

Now, I think it's disrespectful to the past players to say their championships don't "count" as much as a Super Bowl. I don't think today's fans should just poo poo those past champions. Everything we have, all the things we love about football was because the game was built on their shoulders. They broke their bodies so today's players could reap the rewards, they often had to work regular jobs just to make ends meet. It's just always been a pet peeve of mine, I'm not calling anyone out it's more of a general statement. Time for me to get of my soapbox! The Browns have never been to the championship game called the Super Bowl but theirs should not be shoved aside either. Besides, even though there's 32 teams now I could argue there's actually less good teams today than the 10 teams in the NFL back then. There's a lot of hot garbage in the NFL which I find it hard to watch until the playoffs.

In an interview I saw with Eisenberg he said basically don't worry, Lex will lose his hair and the movie will explain why.  Presumably from handling the kryptonite I'm guessing.

Yes, the B10 is 5-5. I forgot about PSU today. I see ESPN already listed the at struggling. Is 5-5 struggling? To me it's not, it's incredibly average. Yes Iowa and MSU screwed the pooch but so did Ok St. and Oklahoma. Let the spin cycle begins.

Still, I bet the national pundits will focus more on the Big 10. How Iowa and Michigan St got destroyed yet the two other Big 12 schools in the New Year's 6 bowls will go largely unnoticed. Even throw the Big 10 had a winning bowl record it will still be the two big losses the college football world will focus on. If there's any conference that should be bashed it's the Big 12.

Another blowout? This bowl season has SUCKED! Lots of blow outs. The two semifinal games, rose, citrus, outback, I'm probably missing some. Of course Ohio State won by 16. Any else? lot of bad match ups. Bowl games are just weird, who's motivated and who's just happy to be there.
