Penn State used to be a game I looked forward to when it first came into the league. Now its just another game. Penn State for the last 10 years, with a few exceptions, has played at the level slightly below Wisconsin, which is not something to get excited about.

Good points, but one could also argue a society without entertainment may be better off. People would be forced to spend actual quality time with their family. More time to think about one's health too. Maybe instead of focusing on the Buckeyes I hit the gym more? 

Comment 03 Jul 2015

If the NFL and NBA did away with salary caps, I would stop watching. I stopped watching MLB a long time ago for the same reason. Got tired of seeing every good player walk away from the Indians once free-agency hit.

NBA without salary caps would be the death of the league. All the elite players would just play for the Knicks, Lakers, Bulls, and Heat.

If people stopped caring and going to sporting events, none of these athletes would be getting paid to play a game. If it really bothered people so much how much athletes get paid, then they should stop going. It really is mind boggling to think that all these guys are getting paid millions to play a game that has no effect on real life.

Can't win them all. LJ is known not to bs when recruiting. Gary's mom probably didn't like the message given. I trust in Urban and LJ to get whoever fits in best and mold them into championship level players.

Thanks. That's what's great about 11W; it is a forum for true Buckeye fans. Others are welcome as long as they are respectful. There are plenty of other Buckeye forums where the mods welcome trolls because it drives up traffic.

Russell Wilson plays basketball too? I knew he played baseball. Wow, dude is an athlete. 

Comment 17 Jun 2015

Hire Jeff Van Gundy. Blatt is in over his head and his rotations suck. Van Gundy would light a fire under Mozgov's ass and turn him into an enforcer.

Comment 17 Jun 2015

Mozgov is never going to be a dominant big man and go to guy. However, he can score when needed and most importantly he plays good D and clogs the middle. Good centers are hard to come by and he is certainly good. I'm not saying he is dominant, merely good. 

Cavs need to upgrade the bench, and most importantly resign Tristan Thompson. A viable point guard is needed. Delly had his moment in the sun but he is not a reliable scoring option. I think its going to take a long time for Kyrie to come back. Shattered knee caps are not easy to recover from; it took Blake Griffin a while to come back.

The only ray of sunshine I can take away from this series is the Cavs pushed the NBA's best team to the brink with just LeBron. If Kyrie and Love were playing does anyone doubt the Cavs probably sweep the series?

Comment 17 Jun 2015

This isn't sour grapes. I've always hated the 3 point shot. Why should one shot be rewarded over others? Why aren't windmill dunks rewarded? Is it HORSE or basketball?

Stephen Curry did not impress at all. Basically a guy with a great handle who drains 3's all day. A complete basketball players has to have an inside game, which he doesn't. 

The Cavs losing their 2nd and 3rd best players in the playoffs to freak injuries is just bad luck. How would Golden State have done without Iguodola and Green?

Comment 15 Jun 2015

Agreed. One fluke year amidst 20 years of mediocrity doesn't make them relevant.

Comment 14 Jun 2015

I think Urban is already a better coach then Woody. Urban is a better X and O's coach, was one of the innovators in the spread offense, coaches in an era of much more parity with limited scholarships, and has to play the extra B1G title game. Woody coached in the 3 yards and a cloud of dust era, with 100+ scholarships so players that now play for the likes of Wisky and MSU rode the pine back then. Back then UM was the only decent team in the B1G. If anything, one would think Woody should have won more titles with all the advantages he had over the competition.

Comment 13 Jun 2015

I feel for Weber, but there are far worse situations to be in as a player than saying you're going to go play for Urban Meyer.

Comment 10 Jun 2015

I think if the Cavs could go back in time they would have just kept Wiggins. I would take Wiggins over Love for this team as it is right now.

Comment 10 Jun 2015

If JR Smith can get going it will help greatly. It would probably mean lights out for the Warriors. As it is, a bs call on Mozgov, the type of call that is never called in that situation, gave them that game 1. I think Lebron will not let them lose this series. He looks possessed out there, and I think losing the MVP to Curry ticked him off.

Comment 09 Jun 2015

The "great for the B1G" comments will stop if Sparty ever beats OSU two times in a row and becomes a real thorn. Sparty fans already have a big ego now, pointing to "1-2 last 3 years, 1 loss due to a bogus call" if you read red cedar board. Not a lot of respect for OSU among Sparty fans.
