Re Waters and the band controversy. I think there better not be even a whiff in this independent investigation that the new administration over-reacted. Grand-standing to make a point is something we've already been thru during the Holbrook era. And one Holbrook was one too many.

And no I don't think the band and it's aura of excellence are going to be unaffected by this. Hearing from former Wisconsin band members about the repercussions of their scandal -- sounds like their band is now a shell of what it once was. Don't want that to happen to us.

You don't know how correct you are. I occasionally run into their fans down here in NC. They're never alums or students. Always some Jim-Bob who desperately wants to troll a Buckeye. Knowing the state of our DBs and LBs I cringed when they announced our Orange Bowl opponent. These bozos are going to crow about that 40-35 "blow-out" for the next decade.

Fun times in the bible-belt. :-(

There's no way Khalil Mack stays at Buffalo in this hypothetical segregation of cfb. More than the additional benefits, staying behind would probably limit professional opportunities.

No one's going to do that if getting into the NFL is your goal.

I wished they never tore that bldg down. Like having a castle on campus.

About that CoachingSearch.com NC prediction... there's no fucking way that the ACC gets two teams in the playoff. None.

Comment 29 May 2014

If that's their goal, then they need to get out of the Big XII. It's killing their program. They can't keep up recruiting-wise or budget-wise and the travel has pretty much tanked every sport in their Athletic Dept. (Kind of like Alaska-Fairbanks was doing to the Puckeyes back when the CCHA existed.)

Anyone who pisses off Brian Cook will never have to buy a drink while I've got money in my wallet. Let me know if you ever make it to Raleigh DJ.

Comment 28 May 2014

From what I've read he has a lot of input in the booth as far as play selection. He officially holds the role of co-offensive coordinator/tight ends coach. link

Dave Warner who is the other half of that tandem was MSU's QB coach for the previous six years. Currently his secondary duties have  shifted to RBs rather than QBs.

Comment 28 May 2014

If you listen to Spartans, Bollman is a gd offensive genius. To which I usually respond, he's either a genius who purposely tanked the 2011 tOSU season (maybe out of spite for Fickell being selected interim HC). Or he's a schlub who managed to get Cook & company serviceable for one season (but will eventually be responsible for tanking MSU's offense). Which is it?

If Bollman prospers at MSU, I wish nothing but bad juju for him for what he did in 2011.

Wouldn't mind putting some of those giants on our lines. GOT

Do you not like Cincinnati Chili or is it just Skyline?

BTW, I have my own Cincinnati Chili recipe and have been told it's as good as Camp Washington.

Comment 22 May 2014

I have nothing but compassion for Ezekiel. I love dogs. The two I have are my "children". Having one go missing is torture. Trust me... it is.

To any students reading this and considering getting a puppy -- please don't. Campus is too harsh of an environment and you won't have the time necessary to devote to your new family member. Do yourself and that puppy a favor. Wait until you graduate. That is all.

Also good luck E. I hope he finds his way back into your arms.

Ever since reading the Bag Man SB Nation article, I'm convinced that the Big Ten is always going to be in a state of proverbial catch-up to the SEC in football. And if that's the shit we have to do to be competitive -- then I'm fine with our current state. That recruiting bullshit is why the Ivies withdrew from D-I many moons ago. It's also the reason why the NCAA was created in the first place.

Comment 10 Apr 2014

I'm a big Craig Ferguson fan. And I think even Craig would admit that his robot sidekick & AssMode don't translate very well to the 11:30 demographic. But I'm reading that CBS is probably going to force him out of the 12:30 slot due to him getting creamed by Seth Meyers. And they've been talking to Chelsea Handler about taking over The Late Late Show.

I like Chelsea but I get the feeling that her heart is no longer into hosting a talk show. Or maybe it's just E!.

Wished they would just leave Ferguson alone.Wondering what he could do if CBS could cough up a little money. He operates on a shoestring as it is.

If they do force him out, I hope he does at least one last puppet show. Those are the best.

Comment 10 Apr 2014

That's some funny shit, right there. Wished I could upvote you DJ.

Comment 09 Apr 2014

Academics. UCONN is on par with WVU. IOW, not very good.

Comment 09 Apr 2014

Yeah, the entire south is very ANTI-UNION. It's a very different mindset down here. 

Comment 07 Apr 2014

The debate we have on this issue is making me feel old and tired.

If the NFL & NBA want a developmental league, then they should pay for a developmental league. It's time for colleges to refocus on their primary mission. To the extent that athletics are part of that mission, participation in sports should be strictly on an amateur basis. D-III. That's the end goal for which I'm going to start advocating.

Comment 07 Apr 2014

If the NCAA dies and cfb/cbb become a de facto second tier of professional sports, I urge everyone here (or anyone who considers themselves a buckeye) to write the board, the president, the faculty senate, the governor (anyone who has influence on the institution) to request that Ohio State withdraw from D-I sports.

The university that I graduated from and love has no business being a player in that world.

Comment 07 Apr 2014

I just read that little Arya's "list" is actually her praying to the only god -- death. Makes sense. She does it at bedtime.

Been reading some spoilers based on what happens in the books. The writing on this show is at another level... like The Walking Dead. Too good.

Comment 07 Apr 2014

I don't subscribe to HBO but man that show is totally worth it. Am I the only one he thinks she might end up running Westeros at some point in the future? Also, if Theon Greyjoy gets rescued by his sister Asha, he better watch his back. Cause he's going to get added to little Arya's list very soon.

Anyone think that the Hound might come off of her list?

Comment 07 Apr 2014

I think Wetzel is a douche and stopped reading him after the 3,456th iteration of his preaching on why college football should have a cbb-like playoff because Boise State... blah, blah, blah... TCU... blah, blah, blah... cinderellas etc. So no, I didn't read this and give him page hits.

But thanks for confirming exactly what I thought I'd find in that article. Double-speak and hypocrisy.
