They have been stopping the clock on first downs forever so it doesn't make sense to me that that is what is the cause for the increasing game times. think the real problem is the booth reviews. Granted I don't have any data to look at but I would assume the length of game time didn't change very much until they made every play booth reviewable. It doesn't make sense that game times are going to start varrying without some sort of procedural change and allowing more booth reviews is the only procedural change that I am aware of. If you figure it takes between 3-7 minutes every time they review a play and they review 4 plays per game that's anywhere from 12-28 minutes of added time. I know I don't have anything to back this up other than my own figuring, but that's my guess as to where the problem of game time originates, not stopping the clock on first downs

What happened to that rocker step that Cardale used last year?  Is that going to make an appearance in the offense this year?

I agree that I hope they get it together but I think they've also gone through a few AD's in a short period of time. It would be great to see them get to the level of Penn State and establish their name brand more nationally

I disagree.  As a Bengals fan I want as few Buckeye players as possible to be condemned to the hell that is playing professional football in Cincinnati or Cleveland.  I'm no fan of the Steelers but I would rather see them winning games there then losing in Ohio

I think that court design would look cooler if they used different shades of brown wood for the flag instead of red white and blue, could make it little less loud and a lot more dope

How about Swansea yesterday? They looked really good, I know Chelsea was playing a man down most of the match but both of their goals were a dodgy to say the least. Ayew looks like he is going to be a great fit for them. It's going to be interesting to see where they end up, my bold prediction is they settle in at 6th.

I agree that the staff doesn't need to take him on as a project, but with the depth on this team I think they have the luxury to take a few risks be it a low ranking guy that one of the coaches are high on or a guy like Sammons who is new to the game. I would go after Sammons because the physical tools are obviously already there and I would bet that he is able to learn the tools to become elite, be that at DE or OT.

That was my first thought also.  Birm said no in the Hurry Up last night, but I saw Chris Dougherty, whoever the hell that is, put in a crystal ball to OSU for him this afternoon.  Maybe something maybe nothing.  I feel like they give everyone Crystal Balls.

"But recently she's become sort of an asshole"

Literally the funniest thing ive read all day.  I say get an SUV.

Probably don't get your parenting/family advice from an online football forum, but i'm 21 and don't have a family so what do I know.

No that's all his own Twitter. kind of weird he would post a video of him flexing and then a Terrell Owens backyard combine video while referring to himself as a future "Dragon slayer" in third person... Edit: Upon further review I think that's his brother. Significantly less weird now. LOOK OUT UAB Y'ALL ARE ABOUT TO HAVE A DRAGON SLAYER ON YOUR HANDS

Good for you.
To add on to your notion of "just go and do it", I was at an event on campus last year where a professor of psychology was speaking.  He specialized in habits.  He said good habits are much harder to create and easier to break than good habits(obviously).  But the one thing he said that stuck out to me was basically, if you have a plan to go to the gym, which is a good habit, and your friends ask you to go out and do something instead, if you say yes and go with them, you are weakening your habits because subconciously you are setting the minimum standard for what it takes to break your habit.  So say like 2 days later you planned on going to the gym, you are more likely to not go because you have set a standard for not going so if your friends call again you are MUCH more likely to go out with them again AND you are more likely to allow "lesser" temptations to impede your good habit, TV, being tired, just not wanting to.
Long story short just go do it and if you ever think that you don't want to go remember that if you don't you will be making it much more likely that you won't go in the future and you could break your good habit.

Born in Cincy, currently at OSU.   I like soccer more than NFL, baseball or basketball, so I rank the Crew 2nd because of my interest in the sport rather than my loyalty to one city over the other.

1. Ohio State Football

2. Columbus Crew

3. Cincinnati Bengals

4. Cincinnati Bearcats Basketball

5. Cincinnati Reds

6. Ohio State Buckeyes Basketball

I hate UC football

People who dog Skyline without trying it(most of you) need to chill.
