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.

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.

Almost forgot, Cruel Intentions is the best Ryan Phillipe movie ever.  Named my son Sebastian from that movie.  The sequel wasn't all that great though.

A Christmas story is one of the best all times.  A Christmas Story 2 was hot garbage!

Love doesn't look like he's going anywhere to me. 23 and 9. Definitely an intrical part of the offense.

I'm going to upvote you for stating your opinion, however I totally disagree with you. everybody keeps using terms such as it LOOKS or it SEEMS when describing what Kevin Love is going to do. Love had said absolutely NOTHING about how he feels except that he and LeBron are not best friends. HE IS WINNING. And not just winning, he is a part of the offense. I believe he is averaging somewhere around 16 and 10 if I am not mistaken. I'd take those stats from my third scorer any day! I could be wrong, because I am NOT in his head, but I feel as long as they are winning, he stays. I'm here he sure he would not be THE MAN for Cleveland when he got there. I'm sure being the man in Minnesota and NEVER making the playoffs really sucked!

I voted no.  Although I love my Buckeyes, what happened this past year was NOT supposed to happen.  We lost our senior starting qb a week before the season.  We lost our starting freak-of -nature running back to the draft.  We lost our world-beater-do-everything starting middle lb to the draft (1st round I might add).  We lost our starting shut-one-side-of-the-field-down no. 1 cb to the draft (another 1st rounder).  When you lose all that firepower, you are supposed to have some dropoff.  Just like Bama in some years after winning the championship; when you lose so much talent, especially to the 1st and 2nd rounds, to the draft, it's hard to just plug in players (even if they are 4 and 5 stars coming out of high school) and expect the same level of excellence because they lack the experience of the former.  We not only plugged in new players, these players were freshmen and sophomores!  This doesn't happen!!  Obviously, the players are talented or they would be at OSU, but they still lacked that game experience you'd expect out of championship caliber teams.  I'm definitely not saying that our victory was a fluke by ANY stretch of the imagination, but it seemed that ALL the stars aligned for us to, not only get into the playoffs, but also to get to the championship.  EVERY ball bounced our way.  EVERYTHING went right.  You just can't EXPECT that the next time around, especially after losing the talent we are losing to the draft: the anchor of the defensive secondary - Doran Grant, the anchor of the dline - Michael Bennett, and the one of the greatest deep threats to ever don the scarlet and grey (Ted Ginn is THE best obviously) - Devin Smith.  I hope I'm wrong on this front; we have a relative cupcake schedule until we get Sparty at home late November.  Hopefully, all the replacements will be playing lights out like this past year's replacements did.  Man, that was a lot of typing!!

good morning all. there's no doubt in my mind that if Spence would have played against Michigan State and Clemson, we would have been in the national championship game. we would have had the same secondary teams would have had nowhere near the same amount of time to exploit our dbs.

I live down here in Southern Alabama, so I'm not privy to the going's on that happens on campus.  How often does the University have sales such as this?  Annually, bi-annually, every few years?

Comment 20 Apr 2015

That hand is so big, it almost looks like it's CGI!!  I'm guessing that's Doran Grant directly below Micheal Bennett to the President's left.  The hand looks too big to be Grant's, but if it's Bennett's hand, that means he has about an 8 foot wingspan!!

Comment 15 Apr 2015

I have to agree with you, it being adequate, maybe a little above adequate -- but definitely not great.  I think it could and SHOULD have turned out completely differently.  Tomorrow I'll give my whole nickel's worth to keep from spoiling (just gave 2 cents worth today).

Comment 15 Apr 2015
The series finale to justified last night was pretty good. Not the bloodbath I thought it would be, however it was still good. really hate to see it end. Was one of my favorite shows ever.
Comment 10 Apr 2015

I've noticed that Bama recruits everything big -- big DB's, big linebacker, and big linemen.  Going big is not always the best thing though.  Look at Bama's big linebackers against us.  Sure, they can clog up the middle and if they get their hands on you they are very sure tacklers, but they weren't anywhere near fast enough from sideline to sideline to keep up with ANYONE in our backfield.

Good morning everyone.  The other day, my supervisor (an Auburn fan) and I were looking up the listing of nat'l championships throughout the years and we saw where in many years, there were multiples champions name for the same year, some years with as many as 3 or even 4 champions names.  I looked it up because we claim 8, but during the championship game, I believe the announcers gave us credit for 6.  What should be the criteria for claiming championships pre-BCS when there was a clear cut winner of the National championship game?  I believe Bama claims 14.

Comment 05 Apr 2015
I've always wondered that myself. I will see where someone post a picture but all that is there for me to see is a Square. sometimes it appears that the picture has been upvoted so I figured that I was the only one that could see the picture.
