I know this is an OSU site...but come on.  Owens ran really fast at the Olympics to shove it in Hitler's face.  The Wright brother's invention just allowed us to bomb the shit out of Europe during WWII.  

Is there even a reason why there was a 24 hour runoff?  Still salty over the NCAA loss to Dayton?  Thought so...

Comment 07 Apr 2014

This is tough, but think about this:  Which of the two options have impacted you in some way?  Have you been on an airplane recently or had something "overnighted" for work?  I am not trying to diminish the accomplishments of Owens, but they are just that, individual accomplishments.  I obviously have a little bias here, but Jesse Owen is still a boss.

Ohio is pretty much the best state ever.

Comment 20 Mar 2014

I hate that my two favorite teams had to play each other, but I was pulling for my Flyers.  Sibert hit his first shot then didn't do much at all the rest of the game.  I loved the way Craft played, but I'm ready for some fresh blood in the program.  Scott is a great defender, not as good as Craft was, but he is much better on the offensive end.  The basketbucks will be back in the sweet 16 soon...too many All-Americans flowing through the program not to...

Not sure I agree with you on this.  The UD campus is probably 60-70% OSU fans due to football.  Dayton doesn't quite have the inferiority complex that everyone in Cincinnati has.  OSU is the flagship program in the state, and UD hasn't done much to brag about lately.  If UD wins, that's awesome. NCAA wins are hard to come by with UD.  If OSU wins, most UD fans will be happy to have been in the dance and will continue to root for OSU.  I don't think it's quite as serious you say.

Comment 18 Mar 2014

I am a little torn here as an OSU fan and UD grad.  I will be pulling for my Flyers, but if they lose and Craft and Smith Jr. get into an offensive grove I could get behind that.  I just want to see a good game.  It would be nice to see Sibert go off in this game.  He has hit some huge shots for us this year: game winner vs IPFW, late three against Gonzaga to take a 4 point lead, among others.  Not a stretch at all to say UD would be in the NIT without him.

btw...As much as I hate the Bearcats, they have to be included in the list of premier Ohio basketball teams.  OSU, Xavier, and Dayton have all played UC recently.  Xavier does on an annual basis (the only time I root for them).

Well, I guess it would help if I scrolled all the way down.  My bad, Jason.  I know you are putting a lot of work into this new site.  Outside of the drop down issue on the mobile I really dig the new setup.  Oh, and it's still FREE!  Can't please everyone...you could offer a free back massage while you read this site and someone would complain about the size of the massage therapist's hands.  

Comment 14 Feb 2014

I have the Galaxy S3, and the only thing I don't like about this new site is that I can't see the Buckshots on my cell.  Maybe I've got my phone configured wrong?

Comment 05 Feb 2014

This is exactly why I don't too hyped up about recruiting rankings.  This kid is 6'5" 238 as senior in high school with one long wingspan.  With a great work ethic and superb coaching (wink, wink. Larry Johnson) this kid has all the potential in the world.

Comment 09 Jan 2014

I'm no defensive guru, but from my couch it clearly looked like Barnett bit hard on a TE crossing route underneath.  As soon as Watkins caught the ball in the endzone Bell turned around like "Dude, wtf?"  I doubt the defensive scheme would call for a true freshmen to guard by himself a player of Watkins caliber...but I don't get paid 600k annually either so...

Comment 08 Jan 2014

The thing that worries me about the 2014 season is this:  if Herman was reluctant to give the ball to El Guapo on 3rd and 4th downs and short, what do you think next year will be like with a stable of largely unproven running backs?  I love watching Braxton, but I hope the coaching staff doesn't unnecessarily have Braxton shoulder the majority of the load for the second year in a row.

I will miss watching Hyde always falling forward for 6-8 yards...

Comment 07 Jan 2014

With the dawn of Fox Sports 1, I am really hoping that Fox can take away some of the market share from ESPN.  The B1G might be putting a lesser product on the field, but we still bring more viewers to the table than any other conference.  Let Fox have some of the primetime B1G games as opposed to ABC/ESPN.  Delany had to see the SEC/ESPN partnership coming.  I think the next decade in college football will be very interesting to say the least with the playoffs and the TV deals.  

Comment 04 Jan 2014
This article is probably the worst thing I've read on this site. Urban says he doesn't like to blame anyone, which I take as code for him being extremely frustrated with his defensive coaches. Fickell can recruit, but his main job is to, you know, coach. The defensive schemes and play calls have been horrible the past three games. I think osu can find a defensive coordinator with a better track record for 700k per year. No adjustments all game. Gotta keep trying those corner blitzes! Smh

To each their own, but I just think Manziel is just enjoying the spotlight that he earned by winning the Heisman.  Did you never get into an altercation at a bar, or carry a fake ID in college?  I certainly did.  Is he expected to sit in his room all day?  He is only 20 years old in college doing what college kids do, drinking, having fun, and occasionally putting his foot in his mouth.  So what if he is wealthy and can do more things that the average football player because he won the Heisman? 

Maybe I am just biased against TP because as a dog owner I couldn't believe he defended Vick.  

Comment 08 Aug 2013

A little disappointed with the "race" comment.  Johnny Football's biggest mistake (before the autograph situation) is drinking at a frat party, while TP defended a convicted, dog killing felon, attacked arguably the most recognizable college football personality in Herbstreit, and acted like nothing but a prima donna from the the time he stepped on campus.  Half of the OSU fan base never got behind TP.  I think the color of his skin has absolutely nothing to do with the situation.  

Comment 09 Jul 2013

His analysis is exceptional, and it is exactly what worries me.  I still think OSU needs another year to develop before they take on Bama.  The last thing I want to hear if OSU runs the table  and loses to Bama is "The Buckeyes add another trophy as runner-up University...Big Ten still sucks...SEC rules all..."

Comment 09 Jul 2013

I can't believe that this awesome kid would pose with Urban Meyer, the scum of the Earth who doesn't care about anyone but himself, for a picture...

All jokes aside, Grant just brightened my day tenfold.  Stories like this make you want to live each to the fullest.  

Comment 07 Jun 2013

I am all for being proud of one's skills and talents, but I find the long snapping "mix tape" hilarious.  It reminded me of this Chappelle Show episode...

As a current Centerville resident, this is a pretty cool read.  I grew up in Beavercreek a few miles away (terrible football program, great in basketball though).  However, it really isn't all that surprising that Centerville and other Dayton area Div I football programs can't break through and win state titles.  Dayton shares the playoff region with all the Cincinnati powerhouses, Colerain, Elder, Moeller, St. X.  Wayne has come out as the regional champion twice in recent memory, but couldn't finish it off, even with xbrax360.  I always root for the local teams (I played for Carroll), but the upper divisions usually fall to the southern teams! 

Thank you for putting a positive spin on the affluence of the area, btw.  Great read.

Comment 08 May 2013

It is true MD and Rutgers will be making more money, but you are forgetting that this is America.  Making more money just means that those athletic departments will spend more.  I could be wrong, but giving organizations that have spending troubles more money doesn't necessarily fix the issue.  It's more like treating the symptom not the cause.

Comment 11 Apr 2013

Can you imagine how much pork that team is going to eat at Montgomery Inn?  It's 8:30 in the morning and I am suddenly hungry for ribs...

Here's hoping Grant can become Sabino 2.0.  More hype, even slower development, but a higher ceiling once he finally "gets it."
