Well, the Saints must be somewhat competent - yeah, they've been 7-9 the last few years - but they HAVE won a SB, and have been competitive in the not-too-distant past. The Browns? Last time they won a championship I was in 2nd grade & they DID have Buckeyes playing for them. 

I quit the Browns 10 years ago - too much pain. SMH

Spot-on, Kevin. I was living in GA at the time, but came "home" one summer with my boys, 5 & 7. We went to the C'bus zoo, then made the pilgrimage to my alma mater. We walked the Oval (one kid on my shoulders now cuz they were getting tired), went by Mirror Lake, then to the Shoe. The boys were awed by the size of the stadium, and my oldest was able to slip between the iron fence structure & walk onto the field (again, this was about 1992). The kids, now men, are Buckeyes to this day. 

Those kind of moments - like you experienced - are priceless.

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.
