The Warriors got better in their 1-5 players with the addition of Durant, but I'm not so sure their 6-12 is as good as the last two years. That and Steve Kerr is a 100x better coach than Mike Brown.

The Cavs, on the other hand, got much better at positions 6-12 (minus the defensive loss of Delly). The Cavs just need to protect the 3 point line to their best ability and I think they have a fair shot in a 7 game series.

Comment 26 May 2017

It's just a huge lack of focus/interest. They did it at the end of game 1 when they were crushing the Celts and they did it again and it caused them to lose game 3.

As a Cavs fan, I don't think we're going to have to worry about effort in this series.

The Ricky Williams interview with Bill Simmons on his HBO show before it got canceled was alarming. They were trying to push prescription pain killers down this guy's throat when he was injured and all he wanted to do was smoke and do yoga to take care of his body.

That's the fucked up thing - the DUI punishment is a drop in the bucket compared to all the weed punishment he's been handed.

Either way, what a waste of talent. I can't imagine his ceiling if he were able to play continuous years in the league.

Comment 27 Apr 2017

Exactly, it's an absolute fucking joke.

It hurts

A) innocent people being accused of crimes that can ruin their career/lives, regardless if the claims are eventually dropped

and probably more importantly,

B) the suspected legitimacy of people who have actually been raped

There's no denying that OSU had a talent drop off during the end of Tressel's tenure as an entire club. As soon as Urban got here, that's one of the first things he said after getting to practice with the team. The LB, WR and OL were all pretty bad in terms of elite talent.

I get it, Tress won (A LOT). I'm just saying if he coached another 10 years at OSU, the lack of adapting in terms of getting elite talent would have absolutely caught up to him.

Comment 08 Mar 2017

Kennard is never staying home in any realistic scenario. In fact, Kennard is proof that OSU should be even better, as kids are usually more willing to go away from home for hoops.

The best comparison to Thad is Tressel without the guaranteed Ohio talent (imagine him with the HS football pool of IU). They both were failing to adapt towards the 10-11 year mark at OSU and it shows. I don't think people understand that the critics of Thad are mostly saying that we get that he's raised the bar at OSU; however, he isn't maintaining that level of success and with the resources OSU has, the basketball coach should be able to surpass that bar.

I'm thankful for everything he's done for the program, but there's absolutely no reason an athletic powerhouse like OSU shouldn't always be competitive for Elite 8s/Final Fours (at least from a talent perspective). 

Comment 01 Nov 2016

Considering our O-Line hasn't been the best at blocking and it's their job, I don't know how you sit your biggest playmakers at WR, regardless of how good Urban wants the WR to be at blocking.

The Buckeyes are 7-1, control their own destiny to get to the CFP and this is the topic we are talking about?

Comment 26 Oct 2016

Great points. I couldn't believe that Urban didn't move the pocket after Prince was getting destroyed several times. It's one thing to play poorly, but it's another thing to not make the adjustments you need to make to win.

It almost seems like Urban and the staff just get so stubborn that "their way is the right way." While it's hard to argue against coach's record here so far, it still seems a bit baffling in the losses/lack luster wins.

Comment 24 Oct 2016

The sad part about Prince's poor play is that it seemed like most of the errors he made could have been prevented if he would have just bent his damn knees.

He was playing so high and got beat lunging several times. Easy to fix but you could tell the kid had no confidence in himself by the end of the game.

Comment 01 Oct 2016

Really good 2nd quarter after a meh 1st quarter. While the game wasn't expected to be close, I'm glad the team can still find ways to use this game for improvement and they showed that via the 2 minute drill.

Let's get a few more TDs and go celebrate win #4 healthy.

Comment 19 Sep 2016

Haha I washed them down with a nice cold yuengling from the open bar wedding I was at and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

I was wrong and I'm so happy about it. Go Bucks!

Comment 16 Sep 2016

I was saying I don't think you can assume BG or Tulsa are very good this year just because they had good offenses last year. I think both teams are quite trash compared to the recent teams both schools have had.

Basically, I'm saying I don't put all that much stock into the success of the first two games. I believe OSU's talent is superior to OU, I just don't see them playing a complete enough game to win on the road.

Comment 15 Sep 2016

Interesting to see what type of defense OU actually runs this game.

JT plays extremely well when he has time to read and react. He should have plenty of time with that 3 man front (unless they start blitzing heavily) and that could be the difference in the game. If OSU does what they want through the air, I think they get this W.

However, I think they're going to show a completely different front (a la VT) and it's really going to hamper the offense. I assume the OSU coaches expect something like this, but you only have so much time to prepare during the week. I would find it unlikely that they'll practice against theoretical defenses OU "may" throw out there.

This game can't come soon enough.

Comment 15 Sep 2016

I imagine we run way too many QB keeps after our WRs don't get open the first few drives.

I don't see the Bucks pulling this one out, OU 24 - OSU 17
