Pure, unadulterated Ohioan. Ohio State alum as of June 2012. Lived in the Buckeye state for all but six months of his life. Those six months were spent in Bristol, Connecticut while, yes, working for ESPN. Scott Van Pelt has complimented his facial hair.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: Most tend to go with the '03 Fiesta Bowl and I agree. Also, I want to make you feel old, so I'll point out I was in 7th grade at the time. I'm sure LeBron, Kevin Love and Kyrie will lead to some memorable moments too.

I like Ohio State's chances of winning a matchup with MSU – OSU almost beat them in East Lansing – and Maryland – OSU won in Cbus – more than Iowa running through Purdue and, especially, Wisconsin. Bad draw. Buckeyes have a better chance of reaching Sunday, imo. Ipso facto, better chance at winning the tournament. 

Plus, I'm not directly comparing OSU vs Iowa and it's only one spot in a somewhat arbitrary ranking system. Homerism at its worst would be putting OSU at 1 and every other team tied with Rutgers for 14th.
