Good research, JPFBucks. When I was in grade school I listened to tOSU lose to UNC in the '68 Final Four semis. Grew up hearing about Fred Taylor & his teams. We aren't Blue Bloods in b'ball, but have been solidly good for a long time, especially for a football school. 

I respect and admire Gene Smith for what he's done as AD - especially for non-revenue sports & graduation rates - but Thad should have been given the opportunity to "resign" for health reasons at the end of the season.

Great gif, GTH - sums up the way the basketBucks have been trending the last couple of years. Aside from winning the B1G and making it to the Elite 8 next season, what can Thad really do to keep his job? It's too bad - he HAS done a lot for Buckeye basketball, but the University needs to move on before ALL the wheels come off the car.

Didn't DV you BuckNinIndy, but that's pretty harsh.

In reality, The NFL is all about $$$ - not a lot of guys being given roster spots because a team feels charitable toward them - it's "bidness". "What-can-you-do-for-me?" Was the Brown's offer a good one? Sounds like it. Did TP have "issues" at tOSU? - for sure! I think he's grown-up some, though; has a fam, and is a fierce competitor. In fact, it could be argued that he was one of only a handful of players that worked their asses off the whole season for the Browns.

As a former Buckeye, I will root for him to succeed

My first thought, Seattle.

I used to ride - a LOT (150-200 miles/week) - bicyclists be really dumb sometimes - need to obey the rules of the road, just like cars. Also have to watch OUT for cars, cuz lots of people don't think about somebody on a bike (unless you're in a city that has bike lanes and people are used to dealing with cyclists).

Reason I don't ride anymore? Wrecked after hitting a *#%!ing pit bull (of all things!). Ran right in front of me out in the country. Messed up my elbow, had road rash, tore my bike shorts - not a lot of fun. Yes, the damn dog was fine...
