  • SPORTS MOMENT: I went to the Jersey Shore with an old girlfriend to visit her parents. This was March of 1992, and her dad just happened to have 2 ncaa tickets that night at the Philadelphia Spectrum. Great seats, 3 rows behind the visitors bench. Duke vs Kentucky in the great eight. We were rooting for Kentucky since we could hear everything that happened on their bench during timeouts. It is the only sporting event I've ever witnessed where every single person in that place was completely emotionally drained at the end of the game. It will always be considered one of the greatest games ever, and I was right in the middle of it.

I tried to restart btn2go and now I'm back to the blue screen with the clock. You would think that with the amount of money BTN makes they could make this work a little better.

I guess I'm going to watch Tiger's round and then catch the spring game at 7

I don't get it...Q leaving for the NBA? Not a chance, even if he scores 30 in the NCG. Even though he has hit a couple of big 3's, he commits far too many turnovers.  He drives to the hoop totally out of control, travels about half the time he drives, and is really weak on defense.  Everyone talks about the 3 he hit, and totally forgets that the only reason he needed that 3 is because of the totally stupid foul he committed on the other end.

Once he matures on both sides of the ball, then the NBA might come calling. Like someone said above, two games doesn't make a draft pick.  He needs at least another year.

Wow, my heart is still beating 120 bpm.

The question I have is, what happened to the live threads we had during football? I could just sit and watch the comments pop up. I don't like having to refresh every 10 seconds to see if someone had something to say. It basically makes me not even watch the comments.  Is there a technical reason that you can't do that during basketball?

Comment 22 Jan 2013

Sagarin ratings this early in the year are similar to football's preseason rankings, pretty worthless(remember USC being #1?)

Beating directional schools may look great statistically, but really doesn't tell how schools will perform against better competition.  The best we can do right now is determine the best 25 teams, not how they will fare against each other(and especially how they will perform on the road or at a neutral site).

So far, I see us as a sweet 16 team and no better.

Oregon won the civil war against "Stanford"? That one left me a little confused, I thought Stanford beat Oregon.

Comment 13 Nov 2012

Maybe I'm just a little more forgiving than some, but I think I'm going to give Beth a little more time before I throw her under the bus.

Like everyone else, I cringe a little when I first hear her voice before a game, but she's still really new at this, and it takes time to become smooth.

I have no problem with Joey for the same reason. We should just be glad that we have so many buckeyes calling games.

Can't get firstrowsports to work, they keep wanting me to download all sorts of crap to my computer, then it says I don't have the right "plugin"...sounds kind of virusy to me.  Anyone having any luck?

 

Edit: I got Villinova and Marshall to work fine on firstrow, it's just the OSU game that isn't working

The article says he's 6'8", but the picture shows him standing next to coach Matta and they are the same size.  I didn't know that coach was that tall.

Comment 30 Oct 2012

Bummer about the H.M.S. Bounty.  The tall ships came here to Erie, PA last summer. My wife and I took a tour of that ship. I can't believe they were trying to sail that rickety wooden thing in a hurricane, must have been one hell of a ride.

Comment 28 Oct 2012

One thing that bothered me was that Brax was still on the field with 1:30 to go and the game no longer in doubt. Not only was he in there, Hermann called a designed run for him in that series.  Wonder what we would we be saying now had he gotten his leg broken during garbage time.

KG earned a few snaps, I'm disappointed that he didn't get them.

Comment 03 Oct 2012

We just have to be loud, nothing impresses them more. The stadium has been rather subdued thus far. Hopefully the lights and the opponent will change that.

Comment 02 Oct 2012

I don't think so. It certainly wouldn't have been as bad, but we were overmatched athletically in the trenches. Maybe the different offense would have slowed down their rush some, but Troy Smith wasn't exactly Braxton in the run game.

Comment 02 Oct 2012

Love it, especially:

"1st and 10, shotgun, trips, Bauserman double and triple hitches and throws one near no one."
