Arguing with fans of another school is like arguing about which is better Coke or Pepsi - a big waste of time. 

We love our Buckeyes, they love their Gators.  We all hate fair weather fans, so respect them for their loyalty and move on.

Interesting, thanks for the reply.

As a parent I wish I knew a good way to "wave brooms" without being mean or a jerk to help prepare my children for a world that seems to be every increasing in chaos.

Was that Vernon Gholston in the photo of Lawrence Phillips playing in Europe?  Does anyone know how Gholston's tryout with Washington DC went?

Can't find his homepage with simple google search, but his name is Michael Craughwell aka Irish Mike aka Micheal Cthulu.  Maybe this will help.

DJ, After reading the article about freezing the little girl I thought maybe we should could start a Crowdrise campaign to raise funds for the freezing of Cardale's body when he passes.  He could be put on display a la Stalin at the Horseshoe for coming generations to see his greatness.  Can I count on your support?  Will you support it in coming Skullies?

Eurostep =  fancy name for traveling ...  that the NBA allows

If the shoulder just doesn't have it anymore, I'd like to see Braxton returning kicks.

I missed Ramzy's article and discussion on conference pride earlier in the week.  Like to make two comments.

1.  Some of us are old enough to know ESPN did not invent sports nor conference pride.  As a child in the late 60's and early 70's all the folks I know rooted for the Big Ten teams during Bowl season and basketball tourney.  Even the TTUN!   This extended to pro sports too.  As Red fans we rooted for the NL team during the World Series.  Even the Dodgers (How many of you remember when the Dodgers were the Reds major rival in the old western division of the NL?)

2.  I have read countless times on here folks bashing ND for not joining a conference - at least in football.  While not a ND apologist, I find it sort of hypocritical to bash ND for not being part of a conference on one hand and saying conference pride is bad on the other.

Go Bucks!  Go B1G!

I read the Skullies for two reasons  1) DJ's wit and 2) the WMDs.  DJ has introduced me to many interesting forums and blogs that I now visit regularly.  While I don't share DJ's love of  heavily caffeinated concoctions, the 29th President, and cats he's alright by me.

Who was the RB coach during the Wells/Pryor years?  Hard pressed to find anyone better than these two at using the stiff arm.  Pryor use to punish DBs with it.  I am wonder it it was just innate for these guys or if it was coached.

Archie Miller is 36, Thad Matta is 47.  I see Matta having to at least semi-retire within 3 years because of his back/foot.  Maybe to a AD/Vice President position at tOSU.  This contract keeps Miller nearby In Dayton making the transition to Columbus much easier for all concerned!

Comment 26 Mar 2015

I wonder if the helmet coming off is a good thing.  Maybe the energy that would be absorbed by his head is absorbed in the helmet as it flies off.  Much like how race cars are designed to fall apart on impact absorbing the energy of the collision protecting the driver.  On all the hits that Jalin's helmet came off he showed no signs of having had his bell rung.  Seems to be the same most times I see a helmet come off.  So, if helmets coming off mean less concussions I'm all for helmets coming off.  Next play, next man up!

What is the OVER/UNDER on how many years before Mr. Gingivitis wins a Darwin Award?
 

Comment 19 Feb 2015

I will be in the minority.  I think it is a good idea.  A year to develop physically, academically, and emotionally.  Still give them 4 years of playing eligibility.  Most of this year's "freshmen" with significant playing time were either red shirts or January entries.  I agree it would hurt with the recruiting of 5 and 4 stars players if not required of all schools.

Personally I can't stand what Kentucky has done to college basketball.  I am hoping they get beat by someone like Iowa State.

Sorry, don't think Westbrook even makes first team of UCLA greats, definitely not at point.  He would not fit into a Wooden scheme.

Think about this, in Kareem's day freshmen were not allowed to play.  His freshmen team did, however, play the varsity - National Champs.  Yes, you guessed it, the freshmen won.

Read an article a few years ago that Lucas is the BEST BASKETBALL PLAYER AT ANY LEVEL EVER.  Sorry, but quick check on google did not turn up the article.  It included a quote from Bradley - a Princeton grad - about Lucas being the smartest player he ever played with/against.  Lucas left the NBA after a short stay to make his fortunes elsewhere.  Maybe not the BEST EVER, but no doubt the best Buckeye ever.  Can't take a All Time Buckeye team that does not include Lucas seriously.

My thinking is that we the fans should stay away.  Let the families, high schools, colleges, conferences, and NCAA handle this.  The rest of us should focus on rooting for the adults (18+ years old) who are already students (or have signed a NLI) at our favorite school.
