I lived in West Virginia for some time. That was depressing to see the old steel mills sitting empty. But even then, I could find beauty in the hills on autumn days. I currently live in southwest Ohio and while I've seen places that are much nicer... It's home. It's quiet. It's safe. We have four seasons and I'm surrounded by Buckeye fans.

Since the strike and the steroid era it's hard to care a whole lot. The tribe blew their wad in the mid-late 90s and I've become more of a fair weather fan since then. I get the ESPN updates sent via text in an attempt to stay current with the team, but I might only catch a game or two a year. This is coming from a guy who LOVED baseball all through high school and college.

I've always admired Coach Richt. He has proven time and again to be a class act. 

Comment 11 Jul 2014

1. Yes, if a game is on, i'll likely watch some MLS and will start following the Crew

2. Absolutely I will watch in 2018, so long as I can stream FOX at work, they need to come out with a "WatchFOX" app (I'm unsure if they have one yet, didn't investigate it prior to this writing this)

3. I'll surely be watching the 2016 special.

I had a lot of fun watching the USMNT in 2006, 2010 and I watched almost all the games this year.  Even my wife enjoyed watching the games (even the games that the USMNT wasn't playing in)... I think I'm becoming a legitimate soccer fan.

The Browns have made some better draft day decisions since the Butch Davis era, I only hope it continues to improve.  I somewhat understand what their needs are, but I just don't see how Johnny Manziel helps them, I hope I'm wrong.  I'd like to see:

Sammy Watkins, Late 1st Rd QB, Carlos Hyde, Offensive line and then build depth through the later rounds.

I've been disappointed before, I'll be disappointed again...

Yes, there are a few brands I try to steer people towards when it comes to ARs, but as they say... you can lead a horse to water...

Oh I agree completely, straight out of the box the Shotgun is about as simple as it comes, sans a revolver.

Comment 28 Apr 2014

Right. The best brand and caliber is the one you shoot the best with.  When it comes to new shooters, that's the basic advice I can give.  Thanks for starting this thread.

Comment 28 Apr 2014

I agree with this.  A Rifle in the M4/M16 platform is much easier to handle by a wider variety of users with preference going to the Short Barreled Rifle, although an SBR has it's own set of challenges. Shotguns are less ideal for home defense for several reasons which we won't discuss here as it's really not the place for this discussion.  And pistols, unless you use them a LOT are difficult to make accurate hits at any distance.

Comment 28 Apr 2014

I'll be honest with you, I'm not a big fan of Glock either, and the only reason I have the Glock 27 is because I got such a stupid good deal on it, but since the first time I've fired it I've been looking for a replacement, however it's just not that high of a priority for me at the moment.  The only problem with Sig is they are darn proud of their product and you'll pay for it.  However, the P226 is by far the nicest handgun I've ever fired.

Comment 28 Apr 2014

I got out a couple weeks ago and ran about 200 rounds through the Glock 27 and Sig P226.  I met a buddy of mine at a range outside Deceiveland to stretch the legs on his new Daniel Defense upper. 

Comment 01 Feb 2014

I agree with you on the "truly dominate" comment. But I also am of the understanding that the way teams play offense these days (spread and zone read) prevents a defense from being overly aggressive and forces guys into space where the the guy reacting is almost always at a disadvantage. Bottom line. Guys need to make a play.

We scheduled our wedding to avoid any "Imperial Entanglements" with my addiction. 

Luckily for me my Wife loves watching the Buckeyes. 

Comment 04 Jan 2014

Great points there Kurt. I do agree with you regarding Fickell 100% in charge, but that might limit who Urban brings in to replace Withers. Regardless of what happens this offseason I think this team will continue to improve throughout the spring and fall. I'm excited for next year. Some of these seniors will be missed but it's going to be a microcosm of what's in store for this team under Meyer. I'm pretty confident the passing game and the defense will improve next year. 

Comment 04 Jan 2014

I gotta agree. Clemson was better coached defensively. But that shouldn't come as a surprise. Venebles is one of the top DC in the country. The Fickell experiment is over, there will be a new DC for the start of spring football, if not. Yikes.  I like Fick as a position coach, even though the linebackers played poorly last night. He's clearly not a defensive coordinator. I remain very optimistic because the young talent coming in and on campus seem to be a bright spot for the future.
