Didn't watch the NFL draft last night, but had the CBS Sports draft tracker up on the iPad for awhile. I lost interest around 10 pm (2200 for you military types). Made my coffee this morning and opened the iPad to check out the Skull Session, but figured I'd look thru the rest of the Round One picks first. Coffee came out my nose when I saw the Browns had drafted Peppers. My first thought was, "Holy shit! The Browns used a first round pick just to troll DJ Byrnes. That is the most expensive troll job in history."

Morning Hovenaut.  Hope you haven't lost all faith in humanity.

Tomorrow's polls should be interesting. The teams ranked above OSU didn't look dominant this week. Syracuse and ND got 1-point wins over teams over lesser teams (Binghamton and UNC). Duke and Albany had modest wins,  and I believe Denver may have been idle. Hopkins (ranked one spot below the Buckeyes) won big over TTUN.  I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Buckeyes jump into the top 4 again.  Especially if PSU handles Rutgers.

Unfortunately, I don't Twitter.  But, if I did, I would follow them.

Cruiser - sorry, I wasn't trying to start a debate. I just don't understand some fans' need to minimize UM's split NC in one breath; but who then thump their chests about tOSU's eight NCs, of which more than a few were split or controversial. UM deserves to be just as proud of their end of season rankings as the Buckeyes are. That's my only point.

Thanks for the updates, '94. Would've loved to have seen I think live. What an awesome win for the Buckeyes.

Bump.

A little less than three hours 'til faceoff. Let's do this Lax Bucks! Get dumped, Maryland!

(P.S. I'm coaching games that start at 1:30 today. Relying on the commentariat to keep me appraised of the game.)

Yeah - I'm with you on the time issue. My weekly F/+ ratings during the season were hours of research and work. 

Thanks for the response.

I agree with LoudBuckeyGirl. All this advice you're getting from men probably won't help you.  Guys will beat the shit out of each other and then be best friends for life.  Women, in my experience, tend to hold a grudge for much longer.  

My wife had two different roommates in college, and ended up moving out on her own but the end. One roommate she never heard from again.  The other is still a friend that she corresponds with, but only because they stopped living together. 

Bottom line: everyone is raised differently, has different values, and maintains different social norms.  Some people respect your space and things; others just view everything in the rom as their's. The latter tend to be the worst roommates, and should be avoided.

Nice stats, Remy.  Just out of curiosity, did you compre tOSU's RB production to other college teams? I'm wondering how the Buckeyes compare to the rest of CFB.  I'm also curious about longevity.  For every Keith Byars that spent 10+ years in the league, there must be 5-6 Jonathan Wells.
