It's nice to have some quality depth at QB.  So much so, I'm not worried if OSU can't land a QB in this class.  Sure, it's better to get a top QB in every class but it's not like Bauserman or Boeckman are next in line.  Not even including the 3 amigos at the top, Collier, Burrow and Gibson waiting in the wings gives me quite a bit of comfort.   Go Bucks!!!

They have another de facto home game against three-seed Oklahoma in the round of 32, which has prompted grumbling

I don't know the reason Dayton is being criticized by playing in Columbus.  Look at the distance between Lexington and Cincinnati and Louisville...and I'm sure a lot of other teams are playing within 100 or so miles from home.

To the point, I like Matta but something has been amiss in the program and imho it's somewhere to be found in a lack of quality depth, player development and/or recruiting evaluation.  Go Bucks!!!

Should clarify that, with prevailing head/tailwinds, at that distance, the actual miles would be the same but heading west to Sydney will add about an hour...on average.

The current longest non-stop flight is DFW to Sydney (not Sydney to DFW) on a Qantas A380....at almost 17 hours.

My longest flight was  Atlanta to Seoul...15 hours.  Of course, if you can get a Herc at the APOD, it takes about 24 hours to get from CONUS to a FOB in Afghanistan.  Anybody ever take the rotator out of Manas and had to head east to top off in Almaty before heading back west toward Europe?  That takes a while.  Retiring in 10 days from active duty and am damn glad I'm not ever going back to the AOR.

Only perk to living in Colorado (no, I'm not a dope smoker [military] or skier [surgically repaired ankle/back]) are the Pueblo chilies (Anaheim and "Pueblo") and the great chili verde that I can make with them.  You can keep that Cincinnati "chili"

Obvious bonus fact: It just so happens to be St Patty's Day on the day I'm promoting green chili.

Wow!  Thanks for remembering the over/under from those earlier contests.  I was simply referring to my gut feeling that this year would lead to another early/first weekend loss.  So, yeah, it does feel like that...to me.

As an alum, I hope they win the whole thing but my realistic view is that they'll go home early.  Thanks.
