We'll need a name for these guys...mad bombers or something.  They're going to jack up a ton of 3's.  So glad that Sam Thompson's 3 ball is coming into shape.  Our interior defense still looks slow and I think we'll have trouble matching up with big teams  - rebounding will become an issue, but I'm excited about the season.  It's going to be a great ride.

Thanks.  Thank you very much.  Proud to be a Buckeye and a loyal 11Wer.

Love the interview!  Thanks for being a great Buckeye!  That '01 game in AA is one of my all time favorites.  It's cool how J Wells keeps that Buckeye love in his heart.  He'll always be welcome back in Cbus.  It's a pity that some of the local players pass on that special bond with their home team - and here comes a guy from 1000 miles away who "got it".

I was curious about the way MLive was covering this story.   I've argued that AA, because of its size and culture, has an insularity to it that is very different than Columbus.  There's barely a whisper of this story.  None in the past few days.  I can't imagine this happening with the Dispatch (let alone the wolves at ESPN).

Never count that rosy cheeked assassin out.  The Warriors ought to sign him for marketing purposes alone - the NBA is so desperately short of interesting personalities and GS hasn't had a compelling player to root for in years.

DJ - Chillicothe makin' you Marionaires jealous?   Represent Ross County!   ugh.  I'm going back to visit next week.  I might have to pop somebody in the chops for too much mustard on a burger or giving me diet coke instead of regular.

March on.  Great links today.  Edifying, but I'm going to be late for work.

Comment 03 Apr 2014

Hooray for Mike Conley!  I usually fill out a scarlet colored one, and then another where the teams I hate the most go the furthest....of course that one did really well this year again...but Duke didn't hold up their end of the hate quotient bargain.

GO BUCKEYES!  This should have more than a half dozen comments.  I love football and hoops, but I'm also pretty jacked with the Bucks win championships in other sports....but because the other sports are hardly ever on TV, it's hard to really be a fan.

Still - this is crazy impressive.

I could have a lot of fun with negative recruiting against Alabama - that sort of stuff was reputedly why Eli  Payton Manning spurned Ole Miss for Tennessee - surely not a great step up - but considering Ole Miss' rock-bottom nature. 

It would be really cool if 'Bama or some other bastion of racism would lose a few high profile recruits with a conscience.  Just a letter is all it would take.

I was part of a group that did this from within another campus about 15 years ago....for basketball.  It was very effective.

Comment 22 Mar 2014

OK OK OK...so we had a down year....for US....for now.  So many of you have been spoiled by Matta that you can't enjoy a 20 win season.   Have you forgotten the years when 20 wins was considered a great season?  I'm sick of all the dancing on the grave of Aaron Craft's season and career.  It's always, "what have you done for me lately?"    I guess this is the price one pays for being a fan of the Buckeyes where a final four in basketball and a national championship in football are the only seasons that don't disappoint.

Have you talked to any Hoosier fans lately? 

 

If you're going to do an autopsy - do it right.  There were clearly flaws on this team, but there was plenty to consider that was positive as well.

Lighten up folks!  We live in the golden age of Buckeye sports.

My dad is richer than you...and I'll cut you off in traffic.

I think the B1G has a new "Most Punchable Face" candidate in coach RicHARD Petino.  Seriously he looks like the prick character in any number of John Hughes movies or a Wall Street cheat.   Who'da thunk anyone could challenge Crean - but this guy (and I don't yet hate him) really make my arm twitch and my fist clench.  

I think we need an 11W poll.

Let's hope they take smart shots in the half court set, and if they're going to drive wildly into the lane, they do it early in the shot clock like they did against NW, before the D has a chance to set up.  Get a lead and play loose boys.  Go Bucks!
