I was going to say Carson Daly, but I can see where you get Ed Helms. If the 2 had a kid, it's this guy.
Like how OSU fans hate any Ohioan who plays for Michigan?
Or just a small contingent of Cincinnatians
Had he stayed, I'd bet he'd still be the same seed, but Cleveland fans would hesitate voting Archie over him.
Basically, it would be the way Reds fans are conflicted over Rose v Tressel.
"There are lies, damn lies and statistics"
So glad 11W embraces advanced analytics. So sick of sportswriters dismiss advanced stats because they don't understand them.
This. A trillion times this.
The odd thing is that it is almost solely attributed to "team" sports, and never individual sports. Roger Federer would fit the description because HE wins matches by himself.
It is most infuriating when discussing QBs. Football is the only major team sport where players don't play 2 ways (special teamers notwithstanding). QBs are literally uninvolved with with defense and special teams. Yet we always here "This QB is 8-4 in these situations". No, extremely lazy sportswriter, the team is 8-4, defense included.
First, until this year, they were D1, which always has a few nationally ranked teams.
Second, as much as I respect Ted Ginn Sr. as a person and a leader of men, he's not very good x's and o's. Glenville has very agressive schemes, but they are so basic and predictable. A good coach with decent athletes can beat them.
Been going to Glenville games since the Troy/Ginn days.
Most talented team I ever saw from them was 2005 with Bryant Browning, Robert Rose, Arvell Nelson, Bruce Frieson and Cordale Scott. Team was just loaded.
Most talented individual was probably Dareus Hiley. Kid was an absolute freak. Was in the same class as Whitner. Never saw the field due to off the field stuff.
If you can't live it down for 4 hours, call a doctor
2 best places to watch HS football in the country are Fawcett and Paul Brown. Volleyball finals are in Dayton, but Northern Ohio schools aren't clamoring for a move.
Sorry, nothing beats the Shoe for a college game, but it isn't for HS football.
MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL are known as "The Big 4". NFL, NBA and MLB are "Big 3".
Out of any Big 3 sports team, I want the Heat to win the least. I say this as a CSU Alum and son of CSU Alum who watched Norris Cole play live many times.
I was reading Jerry Palm's projections last night. He had Auburn with a sizeable computer lead on us (2 to 2.75). I was pretty worried.
As of right now, Auburn would need about 40 voters in BOTH human polls to switch their votes for Auburn to jump us. And that assumes that no one else moves OSU up (like the coaches who have us 4th and 5th).
Win and in. ALso, Palm is an idiot.
Here's to hoping Tom Herman doesn't land somewhere in the Big Ten.
I respectfully disagree. We can't complain that the suckitude of the Big Ten is killing our Title hopes and also root for good coaches to stay out of the conference. If Herman would elevate another BT school in prestige, it will help OSU.
I think having LSU ahead of Miami is even worse.
Meanwhile, Doug Lesmerises ranks us #2.
WHY DOES HE HATE OSU AND WHY IS HE SO JEALOUS OF COLUMBUS!?!?!?!
Anonymous random people downvoted my comments? OH NO!
I don't blame the staff one bit. He's a necessary evil in OSU's book.
I do get kicks out of the espn fanboys who think he bleeds scarlet and gray. OSU is a big name right now. If OSU hoops/fball went down the tubes, you wouldn't hear an OSU related peep from him. I guess they forgot this game.
He would have gone to Akron. It is good for his image to say he would have gone to OSU, but he would've followed Dru Joyce to Akron....same way he followed him to SVSM.
Sorry, I'll make sure I run my opinions by you from now on.
Can I dislike Nick Saban? He never did anything to me, but I really want to dislike him. Please allow me to do so.
BTW - He's a Yankees fan and Cowboys fan, and grew up a Bulls fan, UNC and Florida St fan. He's never been an Ohio guy.
I don't think you follow the Cavs or the NBA that closely. Gonna say agree to disagree.
I hate this argument. I've been a Cleveland sports fan for 20+ years. If all I was interested in was winning titles, I would've switched allegiances long ago. I don't want him on the Cavs again. Ever.
I am more worried about Braxton quitting halfway through the game and then transferring to Miami.
