He also said "I plan on being a Cavalier either way" when asked if winning a title this year will affect his decision. Somehow, him saying he's going to play in Cleveland next year isn't the headline, but some quantifying of his friendship with LeBron is.

Normally, I would chalk this up to the national media, but this is the freaking biggest paper in Cuyahoga County. The Plain Dealer hired Chris Haynes, Joe Vardon and Chris Fedor to cover the Cavs, and all 3 have been awful. Fedor is so bad I put him on a Mark May level.

Good. I didn't get into the X-Files until a couple years after it ended. I liked the 2nd movie, but it just a long stand alone episode and did nothing to help close the major mythology arcs of the series. Even if it is crappy closure, we need closure.

Big Nut was at the NCAA Tourney games in Cleveland a few years ago when OSU was a #1 seed. I met him and took a picture with him. He was a genuinely nice guy to me, so I always defend him when people on here rip him.

I love Mike Tyson PO references, but I think King Hippo or Soda Popinski are more recognizable.

Pre-SEC shill edition Gary Danielson added, "the problem is you don't have your running back who can make these kinds of plays," in reference to Clarett standing behind Jim Tressel on the sideline as backup quarterback Scott McMullen motioned in the play.

Danielson on ABC was my favorite color guy. Even on CBS, he's still one of the best color guys, when he isn't spewing SEC propaganda.

Sometimes I think I am the target audience for these movies.

In general, I like Sci-Fi movies. Star Wars is my favorite franchise, and the only one I followed "in depth", but I generally like Star Trek, LOTR, etc.

I never have read a comic book in my life. Didn't watch any MCU films till the Avengers came out, and I only Redbox'd it because I wanted to see the Cleveland scenes. I liked, so I went back and watched all the phase 1 moves, and enjoyed them. Now, I see them all in theatres.

It's great being a casual comic book fan. Since I haven't read any comic books, I never get disappointed about "botching" a charcter or story arc, because I never knew them. And if I need to do some quick research (i.e. Thanos or Infinity Stones), I can just go to wikipedia and get what I need in 5-10 minutes.

It's an already made universe that I can choose how far into it I want to go.

Vegas, because it encompasses every other type of vacation destination.

Hollywood? Go to the MGMGrand or Planet Hollyhood

Italy? Go to Caesars

France? Go to Paris

Bahamas? Go to the Tropicana

I upvoted it for being a Seinfeld reference,

This was a salary cap move. Saves them a little over 3 mil this season. They still need to make about 3 or 4 more moves before signing FAs and their draft picks.

Love for the Browns to nab him. Need a WR over 5'10.

In conference play, OSU is +7 per game, average score of 69.7 to 62.7. That should equate to about a .750 winning percentage (using KenPom's Pythag formula). Instead, they are at .571.

They have been crap/unlucky in close games, especially in conference play.

If their defense was merely near league average last year, they make the playoffs.

Biggest question to me is if Kipnis bounces back back and how well Moss plays. Brantley will see some regression, and Chisenhall might as well. Kipnis and Moss can more than make for that.

Comment 14 Feb 2015

The fact that the vast majority of the team was from Ohio. Starting QB, all 5 OLineman, co starter at TE, 2/3 starting WR, 3/4 starting DLine, 2/3 LBs, 2/4 DBs all Ohioans. We here so much about how the talent pool is dwindling in the Midwest. Guess Ohio didn't get the memo.

Comment 11 Feb 2015

I think 7-5/8-4 is a reasonable expectation for Michigan this year. And really, given how they've been on the decline, that is a solid job.

But these fans will expect 10+ wins, and when they win 7 or 8, they'll still somehow claim they exceeded expectations.

Would've loved to see early Metallica. First time I saw them was post St. Anger. Don't get me wrong, still awesome, but would've loved early Metallica.
