The 2014 team really started to click after the Maryland game last year. Maybe this will be the game to propel us.
Another fantastic read, Ramzy. I unexpectedly lost my father 51 days after he and I were in The Shoe for the 2011 Wisconsin game. It was an unbelievable game and a father/son memory I'll never forget. I haven't been to a game since but have tickets for this season. It won't be the same without him, but will be my daughter's first game. Gotta keep passing it on to the next generation.
Makes you wonder about the Curtis Samuel position change... No way Bri'onte Dunn is EZE's backup this season.
We can always try to beat Ohio in basketball, right? Oh wait...
Call me crazy, but I think adding Maryland would be great. I'm not a huge fan of adding Rutgers, but who could be a better add? Crab cakes and football, that's what Maryland does.
I think their program would only get better by being able to expand their footprint. We have worse bottom dwellers than either of those teams. Illinois, Purdue, Indiana, Minnesota, so what's the big deal?
Wood is a nice place. I grew up in BG. I have lots of family in Tontogany. It's a nice little town with a beautiful new school.
Love seeing Wood County represented. I was born and raised in that great county in NW Ohio.
OSU - 56
Purdue - 20
OSU 31 - Nebraska 30
OSU 55 - UAB 6
Greg Oden and 2011 Eat Too, Brutus attendee share a comical and shocking moment while getting a glimpse of Bret Bielema's Zoosk profile.
Love the Vampire Weekend reference for the links.
Last year's BYU Jimmer squad comes to mind too. I think they were a sweet 16 exit.
You might of just brought me on board with Community. I'm a huge Joel McHale fan. I love his sarcasm and watch The Soup every week but never got into Community. I just wonder why after a long hiatus, and a big fan following, they would come back on the first night (first real night) of the NCAA Tournament.
Great guest host this week. You'll have to have Sarah back again in the near future. Mark me down as the third listener for this week's dubcast.
Glad that you got to see the Stroh Center, Jeremy. I was born and raised in BG and my mother works at BGSU (I can literally have tickets any time I want them) but I haven't made it home to see a game yet.
I don't know what I would do at a BGSU basketball game with athletic players. Aside from Antonio Daniels and Keith McCloud I was used to seeing Dan Dakish bring in good ol high pick and roll players from here in the Darke/Mercer county area.
HAHA Love the part about Braxton. He seriously had to think that when they're running Dave on 3rd and 24.
LQR needs to chill. It would be nice to see him play more, but who's spot does he take to get more minutes? If there's anybody who has a gripe it's Sam Thompson a.k.a. The Human Highlight Reel who does nothing but shine every time he's on the floor.
Come on LQR, get your grades right, do the things you need to do in order to be a college basketball player and quit your bitching. The coaches didn't say "I don't know how much of this bull s*** I can take" when you couldn't get eligable in time for fall practices.
I know Urban wants that "fly off the film screen" athlete, but I think there are a few on the team. Philly Brown (who is extremely fragile, hopefully Coach Mariotti can fix this) is a very accomplished track star, Jordan Hall has some serious allusiveness, and Devin Smith and Verlon Reed are both great athletes.
Everyone is always talking about the next Percy Harvin but he is such a rare athlete it's like waiting for the next Dwayne Wade or Dwight Howard. There's only one that comes along in a few years, and hopefully you're lucky enough to get him on your team.
I've backed Delaney for quite a while. So many people were wondering why we weren't going for the 13th and 14th members of our conference. We added Nebraska, a price fish for any conference, and other conferences add the likes of Utah, Colorado, Texas A&M, and Mizzou.
Top to bottom, we are the strongest conference in football and basketball with coaches who are willing to travel all over the country to play games. I think the expansion of the SEC and PAC 12 have further diluted their already top heavy alignments. The B1G will be back on top in both sports in a very short time.
Oh yeah, and Notre Dame, enjoy playing in the Big LEast and being even more irrelevent.
Agreed. I love Luke Fickell just as much as John Gruden probably loves him. Great guy, awesome Buckeye, great for the program and great for the kids. I would love for him to be on the staff but I would also not be opposed to him leaving so we can have a clean slate.
Just trying to think of the receivers we already have... Philly, Devin Smith, Evan Spencer, Verlon Reed, Chris Fields, T.Y. "Dropsies" Williams, Plus add in Frank Epitropoulos, Roger Lewis, Mike Thomas, that makes for 9 receivers, not counting Jordan Hall who will probably be more of a slash type player next year.
You would have to think that with the limited scholarships we have left, Green-Beckham or Caleb would be much more important than Southward. You would have to think that he is being asked to explore his options since Meyer wasn't hired yet when he committed.
