Born and raised in Columbus, OH. Grew up on campus at tOSU as my father was faculty, and I have always loved the Buckeyes. Graduated from the US Naval Academy and have served in the Navy ever since.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Watching Keith Byars lead the Buckeyes to a come-from-behind win against Illinois in the Shoe.
  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL PLAYER: John 'Hondo' Havlicek
  • NFL TEAM: It hurts too much to be an NFL fan in Ohio.
  • NHL TEAM: Blue Jackets
  • NBA TEAM: Cavaliers
  • MLB TEAM: Reds
  • SOCCER TEAM: None - I'd rather watch lacrosse.

1. Pick on Damon Webb and Damon Arnette in coverage
2. Throw play-action on the outskirts of the red zone
3. Find new ways to feed Barkley

I can agree with #1, that was shown to be effective last week.

Not sure #2 and #3 will be enough against the Silver Bullets.

Missed this yesterday, Ludwig Yards.  Nice write-up. 

I've been a NIN fan for a long time. First time I heard them was summer of '90 in an industrial club in San Diego called 'Emerald City'. They played Head like a Hole, and the place went bananas.  Pretty crazy place for a young Navy Midshipman to spend his last summer of college.

Didn't see it posted in the thread, so I figured I throw up another NIN hit that many heard in the credits of the movie 'Seven.' (NSFW)

Yeah - sounds like there was some craziness in Boise last night.  BYU went for it on 4th and 19 their own 5 yard line and failed to convert.  But BSU couldn't get points out of it.  5 BSU turnovers, including a rare pick-6.  BYU settle for a couple FGS, which proved to be the difference in the game.  I was watching VaTech-Miami, which was an ass-whooping.

I'm trying to figure out what to do to watch the game.  It's her uncle's house and he is an intellectual type (math genius) and not sure I want to watch the game at his house

Introduce her uncle to Bill Connely's advanced statistics, and see if he can determine which team is better by tracking the stats during the game.

I knew it was a cover, but it got a whole lot more air time in the mid-70's.  Even reached #1 in the US.

Does it matter?

It's sports.  Does any of it really matter?

But to your point, no it doesn't.  Unless you're a gambler and you want a better sense of how two teams match up from a purely objective, analytical, non-"eyeball test", unbiased by human emotions and irrational comparisons, point of view.

Case in point: Ole Miss in 2015.  The Rebels lost three games by Week 10 and dropped out of the AP Top 25. F/+ had them at #13 and the CFP Committee ranked them #22. People were losing their minds about Ole Miss being in the CFP top 25.  By Week 14, the Rebels (9-3) were #16 in the AP, #12 in the CFP, and #7 in F/+ ahead of Stanford (11-2), FSU (10-2), TCU (10-2), UNC (11-2), Iowa (12-1), Ok State (10-2) and Houston (12-1).  A lot of SEC haters didn't think Ole Miss deserved a New Year's Six bowl with three losses. But they went in and destroyed the AP Ranked #13 Ok State Cowboys to the tune of 48-20, which is what the analytics said they would do.

No one losses to Syracuse Virginia Tech and makes the playoffs

Said everyone in 2014.
