I'm a displaced Buckeye fan living here in Dothan, Alabama, originally from Cleveland. Surrounded by the colglomerate called the SEC seemingly owned by Paul Finebaum.

When I first saw the title saying CFL I was thinking College Football Live which meant football season was close. So disappointed..........
Comment 09 Jul 2015

Since LSU beat my beloved Buckeyes in the n'ship the 07 season, their record has been 8-5, 10-3, 10-3, 12-1 (smashed by Bama in n'ship), 11-2, 9-4, 8-5.  Averaging over 3 losses a season in that time period, to me, doesn't spell "elite".  And Georgia's record is even worse; over the past 5 seasons: 10-3, 8-5, 11-2, 9-4 (loss to MSU in Outback Bowl), 6-7.  That's not even "good", really it's average.  I'm not knocking the SEC.  Anyone with any kind of reason about them would say the SEC is still the best conference.  However, it's not like the SEC is #1 conference and the other 4 conferences are 5a, b, c, and d.  The gap is closing between ALL the conferences.  I love the playoff system so much because now you have to play your way in instead of just automatically qualifying because of past accomplishments.  With the playoff, it's either put up or shut up.

Comment 09 Jul 2015

I'm not basing my thoughts on a SINGLE year's play.  Looking back at the past SEC nat'l champs you have Bama, Auburn, Florida, & LSU (I'm not leaving out any am I?)  Of course Bama is still an elite team -- nobody's questioning that.  You seem like a reasonable person (guy/girl?), you mean to tell me that you'd realistically/honestly say that LSU and Florida are still elite teams JUST because they won a c'ship within the last decade?  Auburn, for me, is on the fence; they won a c'ship in 2011 and got back to the big game 3 years later.  Besides Bama and Auburn, who out of the SEC has PROVEN that they should be endowed with "elite" status?

Comment 09 Jul 2015

C5, I upvoted you for having a well thought out and respectful opinion, however, I disagree with your sentiments.  You mention these SEC teams are elite because of the 10 year record of said teams.  How many players from these 4 nat'l champ teams are still playing for those teams?  In short, none.  You can't base current status off of PAST success.  In the here and now, as last year proved, there aren't a PILE of elite teams in the SEC anymore (if there ever really were), and over the last few years, MSU has proven they are more that just "good".  What makes them NOT elite.  The only way to really prove what a team's worth is to play OTHER teams, and we see what happened when the "elite" teams out of the SEC played teams outside of their conference when it mattered.

I can't agree with you more. Kevin Love was an excellent acquisition for the cavs. If he and Kyrie were healthy, I would have picked the Cavs in five. they were that good. obviously, the Kyrie injury was a bigger blow then love's injury however, it was still a major blow.
Comment 20 Jun 2015
Agreed. I'm not a league loyalist like the SEC pundits, but a better B1G is good in the long run for the Buckeyes. Iron sharpens iron and competition breeds success.
Comment 18 Jun 2015
the one I got was pretty straight. obviously, it wasn't perfect but for less than 30 bucks I am EXTREMELY pleased. It's not like Barrett's name was sewn onto the stomach of it or something.

Doing this from my cell phone so I hope I did this right..... http://m.aliexpress.com/search.htm?keywords=ohio+state+football+jersey We're actually going to be in Ft Worth, going through a lot of rain.

Headed to Dallas for my family reunion - only reason I'm up this early. Pulled up to a Waffle House to stretch our legs and change drivers. Man, you put in work SUPER early. Can't wait to show off my new Aliexpress Barrett jersey in TCU country!
Comment 16 Jun 2015

I picked Bama in this scenario, not because I think the Tide is the worst team out of this 5, but I do think that they have the least chance to go undefeated with the schedule that they have.  With Wiskey, Miss State, Auburn, LSU, and Georgia on their schedule, I just think they have a better chance of dropping a game than the other 4 teams.  If those other teams remain undefeated, I think those will be the 4 in.  I am on the fence about Oregon though.  I think Sparty will give them a run for their money.  Sparty had the game in hand going into the 4th before Oregon turned it on, and they lost their Heisman winning QB.  On the flip side, Sparty lost a lot of talent as well -  both on offense and defense.  The teams I feel strongest about going into the CFB are my our Buckeyes and TCU.  I can make a case against all of the other 3.

Comment 12 Jun 2015

In college, all pass interference calls result in a 15 yard penalty.  In the NFL, however, pass interference calls result in the ball being placed at the spot of the foul or a 15 yard penalty, whichever is greater.  If the interference takes place in the endzone in the NFL as it did at the end of the Sugar Bowl, THEN it would be placed at the 1 yard line.

And by the way, I was ABSOLUTELY wrong in my prediction of us not winning a game out of this series after Kyrie went down -- pleasantly wrong!

Comment 08 Jun 2015

No down vote here -- I respect your opinion.  I'm from Cleveland as well; when Lebron left years ago, I was like piss on him.......because I'm a CLEVELAND fan -- not a LeBron fan!  He came back, so, once again, I like LeBron.  Anyone who is STILL upset that Lebron left, AFTER giving it his all for several years, needs to let go of that.  Without LeBron we were garbage, with him we are championship contenders.  If he leaves again -- so be it.  I'll still be a Cavaliers fan, with or without him.  But......as long as he's wearing that wine and gold, I'll cheer for him as loud as I can.

I haven't lived in Cleveland since 91, but I'll never forget Jim Donovan doing sports on the 6 o'clock news. Back then, I thought he was the coolest guy ever!!
Comment 05 Jun 2015
I understand the sentiment of being disappointed in the way the game ended last night. I am definitely a huge Cavs fan and I too was disappointed in the loss. however, the difference with me and a lot of commenters on here tonight is that I was pleased just to make it to the I was with the team that we have. I realized that without Kevin Love it was already going to be an uphill battle for us to beat the Warriors anyway. Without Kyrie AND Love, it's going to be dang near impossible to win a game much less win the series. I've already conceded and am looking towards next year. If we can keep a core 7 of LeBron, Kyrie, TT, Love, Shumpert, Mozgov, & JR and build around them, we will be right back here in the finals again next year!

BAMAMIKE, good to meet you. I live here in Dothan, Al.  I hear all the talking heads giving Auburn all this love, some having them making it to the 4 team playoff spot; why are they getting so much love?!  Even the guys around me that are diehard Auburn fans (not fanatics like Tammy from Finebaum) don't see it.  What am I missing?  Have you heard anything?  Also, what part of Bama are you in?

Not awful - not as good as the first Avenger or the first Ironman, but not awful.

I've been living down here in Southeast Alabama and the only circus that comes to town is the Cole Bros. Circus.  I've never been.  When we used to live in Cleveland, the Ringling Bro. used to come.  That was over 20 years ago.  Do they still make their way around Northeast Ohio these days?

Jumanji, Mrs. Doubtfire, Hook, even Good Will Hunting,  almost ANYTHING with Robin Williams was fire.  He was a BOSS!!  Hate that he's gone.
