How many bag men does that box feed?

Comment 24 Mar 2015

My wife recently brought home a copy of Buckeye Rebirth written by BIll Rabinowitz of the Columbus Dispatch.  It tells the story of how coach Meyer came to be the head coach here and how he reshaped the program.  There's a section that is a boigraphy on his early life and what shaped him to be the driven person we've come to know.  It then recaps the games of the 2012 unbeaten season.  There are insights into building a coaching staff, recruiting and changing a culture that had to change if the program was to get back to the top of the college football world - which we know they did.

The book may be old news to some but if you haven't read it and are a die hard Buckeye it is well worth the time.  So that's my two cents.

I really hope Archie does not go to Bama.

I second that!  We (UD) don't need to start over again.

BTW - I heard this morning Herb Sendek was canned at ASU.  Since he has ACC and Pac12 experience maybe 'Bama can dump their fortunes (and hopes) on him.  Or go after Shaka and leave Arch alone.

Voted Cardale only on the basis of who is healthy and who will be ready when fall practice begins.  Long & short TMac  said it best.

VaBuck this is the most accurate analysis I've read of VCU on this site.  But those who think they can't shoot and OSU should play zone are asking for a suicide pact.  They shoot nearly 40% from three as a team.  They play 10-12 deep even without Weber.  Their zone trapping press is designed to cause confusion and wear down the opposition.  OSU will have to play small to keep up. 

You're correct Mo Allie-Cox is not a real post player and can struggle with quick players but the bucks don't have that.  As said below Tate may actually be the answer in the post for OSU.  He has the skills and quickness to go toe to toe with Mo A-C.  

Finally, crowds, while OSU has fans everywhere my experience has been crowds in these places love to root against power conference and higher seeds.  I know OSU is a lower seed but their still THE OSU and hence a target for haters.  Just saying.

Indiana should be playing in that 11 seed game Wed. night NOT UD (or Texas or UCLA). Power conferences get way too much respect.  Perfume ain't going anywhere in that bracket either.

Prediction:  IU loses by 20.  And createn keeps his JOB.

Comment 15 Mar 2015

You can't have Archie.  He belongs to U(s)D!

EDIT:  Programs have their up and down periods.  This is a somewhat low - seemingly.  They still won 20+ games.  Most would love to consistantly win twenty games every year.  I was looking at recruiting pages earlier today and there's good talent on the way.

Only when it's part of a Mel Brooks movie.

But reveling in someone else misery is as old as sport.  And when it's tsun or satins bunch it becomes cathartic.

Wear sweat pants - and oversized underwear or cut the waist band to make them less restrictive.

Thurmanator.  Tried to eat it as one but it got so sloppy I had to break it into two.  BTW - the bacon bloody mary was the best!

What's the name of the challenge sandwich at the Ohio Deli?  If they reopen I still want to try it.  But I don't have the appetite I used too so I'll probably just split it with the wife.

Actually GREAT advise.  A good friend basically did that.  Got his BS in chemical engineering (sadly at tsun), went to work for a major industrial chemical manufacturer, didn't get married, lived in a one bdrm appt, drove second hand cars and invested all his net assets into the market.  Made a killing in the glory days of junk bonds and retired at age (ready for this?) 47.  Now he manages his investments, golfs and fishes to his hearts content.

Been 'retired' for a dozen years now while the rest of us in the group are getting up every day going to work and "planning" our retirement.  Man I can't wait.
