So we are getting Star Wars and This within the next 6 months? Plus Superman vs Batman? What a time to be a nerd/geek. 

Comment 24 Nov 2015

To be fair I agree. Urban is something like 48-4 here and people are freaking the hell out. I understand why and all and I was/am pissed too but only Alabama and Ohio St get pissed at 11+ win seasons. I imagine it takes an immense toll on him to be practically perfect. I know most people are surprised about Les Miles since he was a championship and has been mostly good but here is his record at LSU since 2008:

2008 LSU 8-5
2009 LSU 9-4
2010 LSU 11-2 Cotton Cotton Bowl Champions 
2011 LSU 13-1 BCS Champioship No. 1; SEC Champions
2012 LSU 10-3 Chick-fil-A  
2013 LSU 10-3 Outback Outback Bowl Champions; 4th-Straight 10-Win Season
2014 LSU 8-5 Music City

That is 5 seasons of 3 losses or more in the last 7 years(not counting this year). Would Ohio St have allowed that? Maybe, Maybe not but it would absolutely be ugly around town.

This is excellent. I think one thing lost in all the hand wringing of the offensive issues is how good our defense has been especially compared to 2013. Even last year we gave up over 40 to Indiana, quite a bit to a below average Michigan game(late in the year). Defense still wins championships and we would not have won last year with 2013's defense.

On a positive note for Houston, you could recruit the surrounding 4 hours and have a top 10-15 class every year without leaving the area. It is a large media market. The Big 12(in my opinion) will be forced to add teams and a conference championship. I could see them go after Cincy, BYU, Boise, before Houston but they could certainly do worse.

Comment 18 Nov 2015

Galloway and Cris Carter have said negative things about OSU and aren't hated by the fans. Maybe there is some nuance, or differences in HOW you critisize that makes a difference.

Comment 18 Nov 2015

I want to know who actually knows what his kids look like at the time? Like, were they walking through krogers, heating raising Canes, but had on an Xavier shirt and someone flipped out?

Comment 18 Nov 2015

I would also submit Melt and B Spot to the Northeast ohio cheap great food selections. 

Comment 18 Nov 2015

I've had Canes once. It was real good(I am not from Columbus, nor went to OSU). However, if we are starting food wars based on cities then Swensons is light years better than Skyline.......

Comment 17 Nov 2015

Notre Dame is going to be in for a rude awakening the last week of the year. They are about to get Baylor'd(I am coining that term for teams who don't play in a conference championship game). The committee doesn't take in to account conference titles until the last week because no one is technically a champion until then. Since its impossible for Notre Dame to get that boost they are going to be leapfrogged. 

Comment 17 Nov 2015

False, Notre Dame gets credit for losing to reigning powerhouse Clemson out of the vaunted ACC. 

Comment 16 Nov 2015

You are correct. Then my Browns will draft someone who is the incorrect size for their position like Mingo, Manziel, or 50 years old like Weeden. If we have a 210 Pound line backer I am sure the Browns would love to draft him. Or a 5'10 QB.

Comment 12 Nov 2015

I should have said Opened as in went on first in that concert. You are correct, they co-headlined. 

Comment 12 Nov 2015

Heh, I used to think the same thing with the Browns(Cleveland Clinic beside them after all) back in the Winslow and MRSA days. Joe J straight up sued the team if I recall correctly.

Comment 12 Nov 2015

If all the people concerned about paying student athletes pulled their money together they could make a heck of a football league for people age 18-22 and feel free to pay the players. And if your answer to this is "People want to watch Ohio St not the Columbus Whatevers" then I guess the school provides more value, exposure, etc then is being let on. Plus the ability to graduate with a degree and zero debt.

My sister said she went to a show in like 1990. Metallica opened. Was amazing. GNR was late and then Axl couldn't even remember the words to Sweet Child of Mine because he was so gone. Screw him.... Slash is cool though
