  • SPORTS MOMENT: My best sports moment was getting to share my wife's first Buckeye game in 2011 against Wisconsin. The weekend got off to a rough start with my getting a speeding ticket in wonderful Meigs County, but quickly turned into something epic watching Braxton heave that bomb to Devin in the end zone. My wife finally understood what it was all about.

Was thinking the exact same thing (re: last year's highlights).

To me, every single one was from last year, and some featured players not even on the team anymore.

What gives? Were there no highlights from the team this year?

Comment 03 Dec 2014

One thing that really upset me was after the Michigan State game, it seemed that ABC immediately cut to these two clowns (I don't remember Buckeye Man being in the frame) and showed them cheering, as if following the team and all of the good things about that was not enough.

DJ--

I spent 5 years of my illustrious life in the mountains of Boone, NC.

Let me know what questions you may have, and I will do my best to accommodate.

If the move happens, we will welcome another Buckeye in the Old North State.

I don't know...I heard a loud screeching right around the same time I read about this. Thought the gears may be coming to a halt.

Comment 22 Oct 2014

From what I have read and further looked into, it appears that this is something that their AD is proposing to combat what is going on, and from what I have seen seems to be inline with what else I have heard re: the Power 5 programs.

This could be just window dressing, very possible, I just thought that it was an interesting discussion topic, and wanted to get everyone's opinions on it if it was or will become true.

Comment 22 Oct 2014

Like I said, I hadn't seen anything else other than a few other articles from the Dallas Morning News. My thought is that, even if this is just speculation at this time, since there are no policy changes as of now, it is enough to potentially begin to shift college athletics.

Comment 22 Oct 2014

Yeah, maybe my shock and awe was not stated enough. I do like that they are considering all students.

Comment 10 Oct 2014

I say that it is yes it is wrong, and only because as the rules are written, it is a violation.

If you want to debate the validity of the rules, that is a whole different topic. I personally believe the rules are overreaching and they do not belong in the current game. I do support the athlete's ability to sell their own stuff, and think the NCAA needs to change the rules accordingly.

Every single one of these players knows the rules. They also know that selling your stuff is a violation of the rules. Then a select few of them go out and do it anyways. That is why that yes, it is wrong.

Check the COTA website. There are some inexpensive park and ride options available that take you to campus and drive you home for like...$5 or something like that.

Depends where you live, how close to the action you want to park I guess.

Used this option for the Wisconsin game in 2011, worked out great!

Comment 25 Sep 2014

Always try to make this a habit, but always seem to be late, and then ditch out early to see the band enter the stadium. Gives me chills.

There are some good SRO options if there are no seats, but like Turd said above, there really isn't a bad seat in the house for this.

South side faces the band, correct me if I'm wrong, but the north side faces the team as they enter, talk, etc.

Enjoy!

I received a Chromecast from my brother for Christmas this year. I have had an Apple TV for almost 3 years now and love it, but I only have one and have a TV in my bedroom that has broadcast cable, so I was excited to have a Chromecast for that room. Boy was I wrong. You have to stream stuff either from your phone of from your computer ONLY in order to watch anything on it. Other than a few things that I can stream from my Chrome browser, I have not been impressed.

I have been cable-less for the last 3 years, have Hulu and Netflix, and can catch up on most things that I need to watch. Apple TV is very good if you are already in the Apple family, and is good even if you are not.

Fantastic picture brother. I spent my whole life in North Carolina, save two years that I lived in Cleveland. North Carolina will always be my home, but there is a lure back to Ohio that I just can't shake for some reason.

Western NC is great. Was fortunate enough to graduate from Appalachian State (App State, and never Appy State), was there when they beat TTUN, and celebrated by depositing a goal post on the dean's lawn (the weekend after I got engaged). One thing is for sure, if there ever was an opportunity to move to Ohio, I would have to consider it.

Of course, that opportunity would come after the opportunity to move to New England, where my wife's family is from, and I think she calls dibs first over me.

If you hate the customer service of Comcast, then I have bad news. The customer service apocalypse is coming...everyone seems to forget about the Time Warner/Comcast merger.

***Gulp***

Comment 17 Jun 2014

Beat Portugal on Sunday and both the US and the Germans can rest their stars. Best case scenario IMO. I do not see us catching the Germans in goal differential, and so we would be playing the winner of Group H (probably Belgium)

Comment 06 May 2014

Peter King had an interesting take on his Mock Draft for Sports Illustrated:

--  Trade the #4 to Atlanta for the #6 and another pick, and draft Mike Evans.

--  Luck into Bortles at #26 and get him

--  Move back into the 1st round by trading a pick or two to Seattle and draft Xavier Sua'Filo or whatever his last name is.

If that happens, I would be happy with the draft for the Browns.

Comment 24 Apr 2014

The KG shot stuck out to me as well.  Gotta be the most popular backup quarterback ever.  Godspeed and good luck to Kenny.  We will miss you although we will always have your BBBBBBBBB gif.

Fixed it for you.

My sister-in-law should be happy re: the no illegal adultery law in New Hampshire. Although she has since moved to Maine, so maybe it no longer matters......

If Calipari jumps, what do you think the over/under on violations at Kentucky will be once he does go? 

5? Too high or too low?
