Ramzy, you are seriously one of my favorite writers in sports journalism and I mean that quite seriously. You have a gift for writing emotional, poignant, and thoughtful pieces that few do. I seriously hope you continue to pursue writing further in a career, well done as always.

Agree 100% of the providers I've used fios and uverse are the two best in terms of overall quality. I have uverse now and I call them up on the first of the month every month and say I'm switching to fios so they keep lowering my bill. I currently pay $65 total for their fastest Internet, all cable with movie channels and the B1G network. I'm pretty happy with the deal.

I've always supported Everton because they seem to have quite a few Americans on roster. I also support West Ham United because of the movie Green Street Hooligans.

People staked his entry fee. So they get portions of his winnings like buying stock in a company.

As much as I enjoyed this article, and well done Johnny, I think we're all misinterpreting what the OBC said and who he was taking shots at. Personally, I thought the slight was against the scheduling mandate and specifically at the top tier teams are scheduling P5 bottom feeders who are no better, and often worse, than good G5 teams like ECU. I think his use of the B1G is interchangeable and was probably just the first conference that popped into his head.

I was actually joking but I'm not sure it was clear enough., thanks for the solid answer none the less.

Why do you think dads aren't liking the Buckeyes? If I remember correctly Hilliard's father isn't hung ho for the Bucks either. I say we open a cigar/whiskey/stripper/all things man father's club in the WHAC, we'd have the top class every year!

Seems like a good kid with a solid head on his shoulders. I'm surprised I didn't hear much about him on this site or on the forum, good to have him on board though and go Bucks! Incidentally I'm sad I'll never know if he wants to fight a Brady Hoke sized wolverine or 100 wolverine sized Brady Hokes.

Welcome to the family Nick! Now that you've donned the scarlet and gray would you rather fight 100 wolverine sized Brady Hokes or 1 Brady Hoke sized wolverine?

Assuming this is true I have to take a guess and say you're definitely referring to Torrance Gibson. In my perusing of ElevenWarriors I can say without a shadow of a doubt everyone on here loves that kid especially​ how good he is with media relations. The general consensus here is obviously skewed towards a desire for an athlete who can play quarterback.

I'd make a point to add Vernon Gholston to the list of "the bottom five", drafted 6th overall and played two seasons with the Jets and one each with the Bears and Rams practice squads before exiting the NFL. It's difficult to do worse than that.

Edit: I'm a moron, totally glossed over the 2010 in the title

There's a guy at a school up north who's in hot water but I can't remember his name. I want to say its Joke, or Choke, or Broke or something like that. He's definitely on the hot seat.

Let's think about this logically for a second and look at two of our recruiting wins from last season. Raekwon McMillan and Johnnie Dixon were two highly valued recruits with a plethora of SEC offers, and if were going to take Bag Men​ as a factual take on the money involved in big time recruiting then we have to assume Johnnie Dixon and McMillan were spending their recruiting visits getting $1000 handshakes and promises to their family to set them up for life.

Now if, as you claim, its stupid and lazy to assume Ohio State participates in bribing recruits then by your logic Dixon and McMillan turned down tens of thousands of dollars, cars, and other goodies for them and their family to come to Ohio State for free and play for the love of the game? That's an easy B.S. call if I've ever seen one.

You said its stupid to think we participate, I think its naïve to think we don't.
