Yes. an SEC championship is better than Notre Dame getting one step closerto a championship in ANY SPORT. And only. Kentucky and a few Tenn and Florida fans will even know that the SEC won anything. Rest of that conference has little regard for hoops 

Comment 27 Mar 2015

Ohio State, m*chigan and PSU presidents who made that agreement are gone. Maryland and Rutgers and Nebraska were not In the conference when the vote was taken either I suppose....

But I don't like Thursday games either, so we can scratch that. With NFL in play. it really isn't very good exposure. 

Comment 27 Mar 2015

I would:

1.  go all in on Fox. A night game every week and two afternoon games . They have two networks. Maybe even a Thursday or Friday game. 

2. Work on better start times  2 pm for our earliest game. (sign the AAC to start a weekly game at11 if you need earlier programming)  then another at 5 and another at 8 or 8:30. Then stagger starts so that on B1G network we have three more games starting at 1:30, 5:30 and 9 (west division could even start at 9:30 since it is 8:30 for them).

3. Keep the best teams off of Thursday or Friday or earliest starts.  that's for the Indianas, iowas and Purdues.

 4  conference games should start week one for some teams (not the OSU's of the world, but definitely for the Maryland's) and someone from the conference should work through schedules to make sure there are good match ups (multiple) every week  stagger non conference games throughout the season so that we don't get multiple weeks of B1G-Maction marathons  

5. Rake in HUGE bucks and F espn  

just a thought or two or five

Tom Petty and Lenny Kravitz are Worst? How so ?  This is crushing to hear as they are two on my bucket list.  

Comment 27 Mar 2015

First time I saw AC/DC  with Bon Scott I was in second row, too. It was a Sunday night in St John's. On Thursday after  I was walking across campus and heard the chimes for the first time all week. I had an appointment to see a doctor the next day, so I canceled. I thought I lost my hearing but it as only temporary.  My hearing still sucks a bit.  And Highway to Hell was excellent. 

Comment 27 Mar 2015

Saw Little Feat in NOLA during jazz fest in the 90s.  Awesome concert. Zachary Richard opened and Riccki Lee Jones was second. She complained about everything, took 90 minutes to get things set up to her liking and most people left out of frustration.  Then her set was mediocre to boot. We moved from the rafters to the third row for Little Feat there were so many empty seats.  and they opened with the entire  first side of Waiting for Columbus in order.  What a concert. They played some songs twice. Played well into the morning. This is when Craig Fuller (pure prairie league)  was with them.  

I recommend festivals like Jazz Fest, Bonnaroo and Firefly. You get exposed to a lot of great music and if you keep your mind open, you find new favorites you never would have experienced otherwise. Because I went to Firefly last year, I love Sir Sly and Magic Man and New Politics.  Plus I saw Foo Fighters, Jack Johnson, Cage, Group Love and so many others. The experience was eye opening. 

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Indeed. Plus we start the 9-game B1G schedules in 16 and Harbaugh will be in year two and has a much easier schedule, so they will come into Columbus with some confidence. 

Look on the bright side. Tickets will come easy this year in Sept and October because of the level of competition and that's one good thing.  

Go Bucks!  

Comment 26 Mar 2015

"This is Not a bash ... "  But in your last two comments you make it clear you think the other two are better.  

Comment 26 Mar 2015

First: Count Basie Orchestra

Best: Springsteen and the E Street Band: Born in the USA tour. At the top of their game. Four hours.  

Honorable mentions to Cage the Elephant, AC DC with Bon Scott, Queen with Freddy Mercury, The Who, The Stones, Foo Fighters, Twenty-one Pilots, Pink Floyd. 

(Nice list OnceABuck!)

Comment 25 Mar 2015

A couple 10 or 11 seasons in a row (still 2-3 losses) and he can "turn it over" and get out. 

Those who stay will run extra laps.

Comment 24 Mar 2015

Yes indeed. After all the debate about basketball these past few weeks, the most frustrating thing about OSU Basketball is that it is just not FOOTBALL. Go Bucks.

Comment 23 Mar 2015

Understand the frustration but some  players do not develop. Happens just as often in football (if every Bama recruit got better they would beat an NFL team) but because basketball teams are smaller, you feel it more when a few don't play up to their recruitment potential.  

We have a very good basketball program thanks to Thad and good reason for optimism looking forward  I always look ahead when a season is over, and I like what we will have available next year. Now, some may not develop... 

Go Bucks!
