Cincy is the largest metro area in Ohio and they will merge it with Dayton by 2020 which will further increase the influence on that area. it would be the 16th largest metro market (not necessarily media market because Dayton would still retain their market I believe) but they would have a lot of buying power in that region. Nippert can always be expanded if needed. Plus the academic standing at UC is very strong too. No it is not growing as fast as Orlando, but it does offer a comparable market size.

UC in the Big 12 will not hurt Ohio State but it is bad for the BIg 10. If you think about the darkest years in the BIG, it was around 2007-2013. If you notice the overlap there, UC was in the Big East during that period. They siphoned off Ohio talent from schools like Indiana, Mich State, Iowa, Illinois at that time as much Ohio talent was choosing to play at UC in the hopes of playing in a BCS bowl than go to IU, Iowa, etc to play in the bottom of the BIG. When they went to the AMerican, their talent pool has dried up some and as you can see, schools like IU and Illinois have started making bowl games again.

There is shaming people but the internet has taken it too far. We all do stupid things. We all will do stupid things in the future. The sign of a true man/woman is willingness to own up to their mistakes and ask for forgiveness. The world does not need to continually punish this person for a moment of stupidity when they are 20, which unfortunately is what the Twitter Trolls relish.

It makes me think back a few years ago to the ad exec that tweeted the comment about going to Africa and hoping not to get Aids. She lost her job over that and was pretty much shunned from her industry. I am not condoning what she said, it was in poor taste and offensive, but the internet trolls had a field day with her, they gave her death threats and such, all for a flippant comment. Everyone has their moments, people need to give others the benefit of the doubt sometimes. The Twitter Trolls would rather throw stones at glass houses though.

As much of an A$$ as this guy his, I really hate internet trolls for calling him out on the net. Yes, he is a complete douche, but we all have our moments (granted some not this bad).  I don't believe we need to ruin this guys life, and get him kicked out of school over this. He is a drunken immature fool. One day he will mature and realize that he was an a$$ to some people.

Personally, while this guy is a complete douche, I don't feel much better about the people who take the moral high ground and publicly shame him. He is a 20 year old college student for God sakes. Let's remember what it is like people.

With the 22nd pick of the 2016 draft, acquired through a trade, the Browns draft Quarterback, Christian Hackenberg, Penn State.

This is a game changing pick, there was not a more prolific passer (err person who throws picks) and dynamic scrambler (err statue) than Christian Hackenberg. Clearly worthy of the 22nd pick in the draft to the Browns. He has been named no 1 on the Browns depth chart for 2016.

In other news, the Hackenberg family lets out a collective moan - nooooooooooooooooooo

I am not sure what Michigan law says about throwing beer bottles at TTUN fans but ORC 7128 (a)(iii) states that "throwing a beer bottle in public shall be a 4th degree misdemeanor punishable by a fine of $1000 and up to 6 months in jail unless such person hit by the beer bottle is wearing clothes the colors of Sun and Blue or openly displaying any symbols of TTUN. If such happens, the person who threw the beer bottle shall be held up in high esteem and rewarded with the key to the city.

So there you have it folks.

Davis has said he has no interest in St. Louis. He was flirting with San Antonio a few years ago too. He apparently likes the area so if they relocate outside of Cali, I could see them going there. Plus it is well known that Davis is not the best businessman in the fold which was one reason why the chargers got the nod in LA over the Raiders. Making the decision to pass up the existing NFL market for San Antonio would be one of the dumber decisions that the Raiders would make.

That being said, from what I hear, they are looking at doing something in between San Antonio and Austin so it would capitalize on the 5 million people that live in that region.

I am a big fan of burfict after Saturday. The steelers are a dirty team and they deserved the cheap shots hey got considering their history of dishing it out. It was about time someone gave them a dose of their own medicine, even though it did not work out in the end for them. Next time Antonio brown goes across the middle in Cincinnati he may hear some footsteps and pull back some

This should be broken down to lineman and linebackers and then DB/Safety

I would have - Big Daddy, Speilman, Bosa, Hawk and Vrabel on the line with  (Big Kat, Lauranitus and tatum next 3 up)

for the DB/Safety - Springs, Mike Doss, Winfield, Donnie Nickey, Will ALlen.  (Bradley Roby considered too) For being in the secondary, those guys could hit.

Crappy academics, plays a vastly over-rated schedule with greatest challenges being overrated, idiotic fan base. Yep, I would say they are SEC Caliber

Comment 02 Jan 2016

Here is something novel. Give your GM and coach 4 years to try and turn around the dumpster fire. When you blow it up every 18 months you will never succeed because you are always rebuilding. What the Browns need is consistency. I don't believe Petine is the right guy for that but you still need to give him another year to get some additional consistency there. He was given a raw deal from the beginning with the whole Manziel thing.

I like ND more than I dislike them. I go to more ND games a year than OSU games. My wife went to Notre Dame, and I do enjoy the game day experience there. That said I am pulling for the Bucks to slaughter the Irish on New Years.

I have always looked at Notre Dame as that innocent cousin. They do fine on their own but want to be involved in our business and fist fight with our rivals. Its cute for a while, but sometimes, they can be a pest. OVerall, I think they are more friend than foe. As Woody used to say, he was the biggest Notre Dame recruiter because when he found a guy that would not go to Ohio State, he would steer them to Notre Dame so they did not go to TTUN.

If he wants to change positions, then it is not like we lost our QB, he just does not want to be the leader of the offense anymore. I don't fault him for this at all. The Bucks need a QB for this class though wish he wanted to play QB. It is not like he is spurning Ohio State for Oregon because he feels he would be a better QB there, it is that he does not want to play the position period, and we have him pegged as a QB. Good decision on his part to find out now.
