"Florida...where Ohioans go when they are no longer reproductive."

That's how I read that the first time.

I moved to Portland a few months after Oden was drafted. So much hype and promise followed him out here. I've always supported and defended him because I've always had the impression that he's a great guy.

I was watching the 2007 Wisconsin game at the Ohio State bar in town and walked past a huge man on my way to the restroom. It was on the way back that I did a double take a realized it was Oden. Guy was just hanging out, standing around with some of his friends watching the game. He came across as down to earth and very humble.

He'll always be one of my favorite buckeye basketball players, whether his body allows him to play in the NBA or not. He's a great example that character matters whether you're successful or not.

Leave it to the playoff talk to push a long time reader to make his first comment. (Love what you guys are doing with the site.)

I love the idea of southern teams coming up north to play. If you don't want the top seeded schools to host, I wouldn't mind if NYC and Chicago were in the site rotation. I can already see Wisconsin fans spelling out 'Deal With It' in the stadium if they make it one year.

Why can't the Rose or Sugar bowl (or other BCS bowls) be the semi-final games? Seems like you can have your bowls and playoffs at the same time that way. Old money's happy because they keep their cash cows in place; fans are happy to have a playoff.

I'm also  surprised the 8 team playoff idea hasn't gotten any love yet in the comments. 5 or 6 BCS conference champions + 2 or 3 at large bids. Most teams could lose one game max to be in the picture in most years.
