  • SPORTS MOMENT: 09/28/2012 PNC Park in Pittsburgh, PA: I personally witnessed Homer Bailey toss the 15th no hitter in Cincinnati reds history. I hadn't even planned to go to the game, but a friend gave me tickets since he couldn't attend. Never thought I'd get to see a no-no in person!

The format of that site is disgusting. It looks like it's from 1997. I've visited exactly two times, and that's as much as I can stomach.

Wait, it just dawned on me that perhaps it looks like that on purpose. Maybe they want it in the style of the day for the last time they had a decent team. That or perhaps they're just inferior when it comes to everything.

I was feeling pretty good about this game right up until it was announced that Cook wouldn't be playing. That gave MSU a built-in excuse and took all of the pressure off of them while putting it squarely on the Buckeyes. It would have been nice if we hadn't played right to their strength the entire game, but I'm still a fan. I'll always be a fan! Nice run by the Buckeyes, but we all knew it would end sometime.

Thanks for attempting to clear up my comment. (I didn't really think it needed to be cleared up, but since you seem to have misinterpreted what I wrote, then I suppose there's no one better to clear it up than me.)

What I meant from the post is that I appreciate what Thad has meant to the program. Ousting Matta might lead to the hiring of a better coach and an endless stream of championships, or it might lead us back to the days of shit when watching games felt like a chore. I simply prefer to take my chances with Thad at the helm. He may not be the basketball equivalent of Urban Meyer, but I see no obvious upgrades.

Ahhh. Game #3 and we already have a Fire Thad forum topic. Ha! I guess I like having him as a coach so much because I'm old enough to remember what the basketball program looked like B.T. (Before Thad), back in those days a .500 conference record and an NCAA tournament invite usually constituted a successful season.

This really puts things in perspective. Thanks for the reminder to always appreciate what we have, and that opportunities to help others don't always just present themselves. Sometimes we have to put forth the effort to seek them out.

That's crazy. I changed the channel after Memphis scored to make it 34-14 thinking that it would end up as a blowout. That's what I get for doubting MENSA power!

Fortunately, I waited. I told my wife, "barring a botched snap, this game is over." That's the greatest non-buckeye finish ever.

I know. A lot of us use italics around here to denote sarcasm. I might be in the minority on this, but I actually trust Urban Meyer to decide what's best for the team. I think the guy's earned it at this point in his career.
