In Vegas all weekend. Thank goodness I will be betting my ass off - or this would be a super-boring slate of games.

Step 1 - Buy PumKing ( or if you live in Cincinnati, try the The Great PumpCan by Madtree)
Step 2 - Buy an Imperial Stout ( any of your choice), I am a big fan of Yeti
Step 3 - Mix them - You wont be sorry - you will however be full, buzzed, and out of money.
I think we will have a much better appreciation of how good or not so good this team is this weekend. I love the win vs Navy - but they are so unconventional that its hard to say what we learned.
We will be facing a traditional power in Va Tech (very B1Glike team). I am interested to see how the D looks against a "normal" offense, and how JT looks against more talented (not going to say better) players on Defense.
That being said - I would rank us around 10 for now. But that could swing quite a bit Saturday around 11PM.
I just think we need to get the fast players in space and have them make plays
Sorry I just watched some ESPN classic with Herby calling the game.
I am a terrible contributor but an awesome lurker. I spend more time here than anywhere on interwebz - thanks for making me suck at work but better as a Buckeye fan!
If my memory serves me correctly - the last 2 Heisman's have been red shirt freshman right?
I am not saying JT is JF ( although he was much more highly sought after out of school) or Winston (although that may be a good thing in life). What I am saying is that scheme and weapons around you are extremely important. The buckeyes have that - I am not willing to call "The Chase" over.
Everyone always wants the grey box back. I remember when that box was pure doom and gloom for a while. This would of been one of those times
Man - as a Cleveland sport fan, I have to pinch myself every now and then to even believe this is true.
Wait... WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?
I'm in shock right now.
This is a not a fair comparison. I get it, it was probably for humor, but I have heard this 100 times the last 24 hours.
Boozer left an average Cavs team for MUCH more money than the Cavs were willing to give him and was coming off a smallish second round contract.
Love would have to take a significant pay cut ( and PR nightmare) to leave the LeBron led, championship contending, super team.
We do remember that Kevin Love was statistically the 3rd best player in the NBA last year right? (not saying he is, but numbers say he is, I do believe he is easily in top 6 or 7)
We do remember that Andrew Wiggins scored 2 points against Stanford his last game right? ( not saying he is not going to be good, but I'm far from convinced he is a star)
We do remember that last year at this time, everyone thought Kyrie was gone, we were trying to convince ourselves that Anthony Bennett would be good, and that Mike Brown learned to coach. Now the Cavs have the 2 top 10 players, a 22 year old all star MVP locked up long term (hypothetically). Also a great supporting cast that included Delly!!! /Australian Swoon. This is not short term rebuild, this sets us up for being TITLE favorites (3-1 in Vegas right now) for 5 years. Enjoy it, worry about AW later, it will pass in a blink of an eye like the 90's indians, Lebrons first run, Jim Tressels Buckeyes, and everything else.
I own 12 t-shirts.I believe 8 are Ohio State, 3 are Browns, Indians, and Cavs, and 2 my wife bought me ( I look awesome in a deep V... um no) . So I have no choice but to rep.
Maybe I should of used sarcasm font when I said scared. I am however a wimp and suck at math!
I am traveling to Gulf Shores Alabama tomorrow.
I am excited for vacation but scared of being in Alabama for a week. What happens if I slip up and say the things I normally say about the SEC and Nick Saban? Even worse what if I get stampeded when Sweet Home Alabama comes on in a bar? That's how Mufasa died after all.
I was so happy - but I had this feeling not being able to celebrate with friends:
It's been a while since we have had a site crash - 10AM on Wednesday may be the next.
Well it is the best conference in the galaxy.
TIL - some people think Kerry Coombs does not walk on water
Give me Gibson and Harris and call it a day. I would be thrilled with those 2 top talents with how much depth we have all over the field from the last 3 classes.
It is = it's
What's that I hear?
lots of people in Dayton running back to jump on THE ohio state bandwagon. They will be saying "we" again soon after Braxton runs in a 75 yarder, like none of this ever happened
Hurry someone give Amir Williams 5k in public.
JK Jk sorta
I'm rooting for a sinkhole
Aaron Freakin Craft man. I am going to miss him so much.
Those back to back to back defensive plays to end the game were a fitting end to his career at the Schott. Also that dive to secure the loose ball rebound and then NOT calling timeout because he knew we had the arrow. So much mancrush.
Really hope he can figure out some kind of shot and go on to have an Eric Snow like career in the NBA, I would kill to see him get a shot at guarding Chris Paul, Kyrie Irving, Darron Williams, John Wall, and all the other great PG's in the NBA.
