First I had heard about the Copa America in 2016. That actually sounds really cool. There are so many good South American teams plus the USA, Mexico, and Costa Rica. Would be a really good test for the USA in 2 years. Hope full strength USA team competes or we will get crushed.
6 years old and my favorite players were Archie Griffin and Randy Gradishar.....Thanks for giving some love to a sometimes forgotten great Ohio State player.
What an incredible tournament so far! Brazil, Costa Rica, Ivory Coast, and Holland all win after giving up the 1st goal. Over 3 goals per game too. GO USA!
Didn't read every comment but I have noticed that every time the World Cup is in Europe (1990, 1998, 2006), the US is 3 & out. Every time it is anywhere else (94 in 'Murica, 2002 in Korea/Japan, and 2010 in S. Africa), the US makes it out of their group.
That's the best I can do as far as optimism. So far, going by the warmup games, Tim Howard better be like a hot Hockey Goalie or it will take a lot of goals to do well. Good thing we have Julian Greene on the team since he is leading USA goal-scorer of all..........oops, that was the guy we didn't take.
USA! USA! USA!
23-21-2 Buckeyes since I was born. That's my favorite Partition to keep track of.
Good Luck to him and his family. Hopefully his little brother still comes to play for Thad.
Love it but how long before it is Adam Rittenberg, former ESPN.com writer. How did you get that one past the eSECpn editors, Adam?
Even though I would like to see 8 teams, I am thrilled that a 4-team playoff is here. I am old enough to remember when a 1 vs. 2 matchup was not a guarantee. I just hope the interest (and TV Ratings) skyrocket with the playoff. If it does, the $$$ will be out there to go to 8 teams and I do not think the Conferences will stay at 4 if 8 will mean more $$$.
I really think 8 is the perfect number with Automatic bids going to the Champs of 5 Power Conferences. That would leave 3 "wild card" spots that a Committee could choose.
Just saw that OSU lost 4-2. Guess I jinxed it since they were up 2-0 when I made the first post. Congrats to the team for making the Quarterfinals!
Thanks! Didn't think of Twitter. Forgive me since I am in my 40s. Looks like its 2-2 now.
I hated SF growing up but I will never root against Carlos Hyde. Living in Nashville, I am also pissed at the Titans for taking Bishop Sankey over El Guapo. The last Buckeye RB taken by the Oilers/Titans franchise kinda worked out ok.
Typical F$&@ing Cardinal!! Go Reds! (Where they are going I have no idea)
Woody>>>>>>>>>JoePa. 54-46 Woody! The World makes sense again!
I couldn't believe my eyes as we "pulled away" with a lineup of Scott, ADV, Loving, McDonald, and Smith
Great read! I loved the Rob Lytle story that was linked to the article. I grew up in the 70s as a Broncos fan because of Randy Gradishar and never liked having to root for Rob Lytle. I never heard the story about Woody following Lytle's Pro career, but it doesn't surprise me. I have always loved reading or hearing "New" Woody Hayes stories. Thanks for the chance to read another good one, Ramzy.
Good call IMO. Scott has brought nothing recently. Once in a while, He gets a steal then blows the layup
Loved the Highlights! Eddie of course but it was cool to see Terry Glenn, Orlando Pace, Rickey Dudley at TE. 1995 was the first year I lived in Nashville but I made it back for both the Notre Dame and Illinois games.
Even though I have lived in Nashville since 1995, I never considered going to the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame....This May that will change.
ED-DIE! ED-DIE! ED-DIE!
Better score or I feel a buzzer beater coming up against us
Don't worry. Won't be ranked next week
Like a bad wreck. CAN'T .....LOOK.....AWAY!
C'mon Lenzelle....backboard first?
