Back when the IHL was akin to AAA, was attending a Friday night game in _uskegon, _I, formerly the Penguins top affiliate.  With a couple minutes left in the first Duane Joyce was sent into the boards face first.  Went to the locker room for the obligatory stitches and a shot.  Played the remainder of the game.  The team left afterwards for a flight to Phoenix and a Saturday night game.  Joyce had oral surgery with, I believe three teeth being cut out along with more stitches.  He caught an afternoon flight and played the Saturday night game.

Tis a man's game and not for the faint of heart.

When the season started my prediction was 9-3 (OK, WI, PSU) with a bowl victory.  Last night, along with the upcoming week here in West xichigan, was and will be unpleasant.  But everyone knew the O-line has struggled and the passing game has been a crapshoot.  That cannot be fixed in three weeks.  As good as Brooklyn is, he is not a workhorse and needs the playbook to be effective.  Clemson has been consistent with their turnover issues something that can be overcome by good decisions and a stout defense.  Plus they have a lot of playmakers with a decent offensive scheme.  Hence I had a bad feeling about the game, but had no idea.  Even with the butt kicking, a young team lost two games, to a potential national champion and the conference champion on the road.  I was optimistic when the season started and was geared for a big run in 2017.  All is not lost, 2017 is upon us. The sun is shining, even here in West  xichigan.  Remember, everyone hates Buckeye Nation, because they aren't.

I would say after the first of six PATs, no FG will be needed.  Unfortunately UFM would be chewing on his backside for the remainder of the game.  Buckeyes act like they have won before, and know the will win again.

Caught a couple minutes of Fox Sports yesterday.  Skip Bayless, of all people, presented an interesting case for the Mad Hatter. I won't rehash it here, but the case was compelling.  Plus, unless the coach is a complete asshat, a la Art Briles or Bobby Petrino, a mid season terminatin helps no one.  The LSU course was set when Miles and staff returned for this campaign.  Hard to believe that one, William T Sherman was the university president when the opportunity to aid another Buckeye, U. S. Grant, and save the Union, presented itself.  You can look it up.

Fighting early onset after 28 years in the cesspool up north, I seem to recall Saban was the buddy of another assistant that violated the do not talk to the media/prvovide bulletin board fodder.  Saban split the Capers/Carroll duo.  BTW, the only time he has been fired.

An SI article about JC many years ago got me on the World Cup bandwagon, though very small in the US, at that time.  RIP

Comment 07 Feb 2016

Saw a sports talk show a few years back, the guests were Billy Sims, Herschel Walker, Desmond Howard, Bo, and the last one escapes the memory.  When asked who the best was, they all said Bo.

Native Buckeye, been here since 1988, now living about 18 miles sw.  The red haired girl, a native of Long Island, lives in GR and, without fail, after a night out (play, symphony, sporting event), one of us remarks that there are far worse places to live.  Equidistant to the "D" and Windy, plenty of outdoor activities, great family area as well as for singles.  Not sure if they still do, but a Buckeye group used to have a standing reservation at BW3 on game day.  More Bucks here than one might imagine.  Snowfall increases the closer you get to Lake _ichigan.

Chowderheads that ask the cashier a question while you are being waited on.

knuckleheads that are late for a concert, game, etc, needing to get past you for their seat.  Normally evokes a, "did you ask for a watch for your birthday?"

Saw an item on the 12/31 edition of with an auburn fan detailing 15 ways to troll a bama inbreed.  Good stuff but nothing like the 11w crew.

Sparty dodged a few bullets along the way, including a struggle against a good, not great Hawkeyes team.  They took advantage of the mistakes and weakness of others.  Remember, if not for a fumbled snap, The Game would have been for the BIG East title.  If I recall, the Tide had five to's in their loss.  With three weeks prep no way Saban would allow that to happen again.  IMHO the two best teams will be playing for the NC.  A big win against the Irish will still put the Bucks into the top four.

Comment 31 Dec 2015

Beat ND and jump the Sooners and Sparty, still #3.  Pretty good all things considered.  If ND is thoroughly defeated and the NC is a blowout, #2 is a possibility.

Was watching a softball game many years ago when the large gentleman was pointed out and introed as Bevo Francis.  Although not recognized by the ncaa he also scored 100 in a game - twice.  

RIP big fella.
