Not going to say that I agree or disagree with the firing - that's the University's call - but as a director, even with a staff, it's extremely difficult to get 225 college kids to cut out some provocative jokes, nicknames, and drinking.  I imagine he was more worried about putting on the show with the drill & music and likely didn't have time to walk around practice everyday to make sure no one was using the dumb nicknames or tricks or whatever else was in the report.

This might be the first step to changing the "culture," but the only way it completely changes is if all 225 kids buy in, most especially the leaders and upperclassmen.

He'd be a pretty good fit opposite Steph Curry.  Like Eric Snow had AI doing most of the back-court scoring when he was with the 76ers, Craft would not be expected to do a whole lot offensively other than penetrate and distribute.  His defense and leadership would be pretty valuable to a team like GS.

Hard to lump Ohio as one - 3 major urban areas, some small to mid sized cities, lots of great suburbs, and even plenty of farms and rural areas.  As the article said, relatively low crime rate, pretty good job market (5.5% unemployment overall).  If you want to be on the ocean or in NYC (there's only one New York) then I guess Ohio isn't for you.  Really don't see it as top 10 worst.  Probably not top 10 best either, but I think 18, as someone linked, is about right.

"Home is where the heart is."

(Apologies for one of the most overused cliches known to humanity.)

Comment 15 Jul 2014

Eric freaking Snow started in the league for many years.  Not saying Craft will start as the game has changed, but just look up Snow's shooting stats over the years.

If it's "on the rise" why is it one of the top 5 major cities in population loss every year?

Comment 11 Jul 2014

If this is now "leaking" (if you actually believe Broussard) as a way to soften blow to Cleveland...he can never come back.  Stories have been coming out for over a week indicating he'd be coming back or is strongly considering it.  His camp has done nothing to put an end to those rumors.

I highly recommend ColumbusUnderground.com.  They come out with a "Mega Weekend" newsletter every Thursday of events and stuff going on each weekend.  And they have articles on "hot spots" for eating, entertainment, etc.

This.

For awhile, talks went nowhere.  But with the management partnership between the university and the Schott/NWA, I think it could have some legs.  The NHL paid Michigan $3 million to use their stadium - so it would be a nice chunk of change.  Plenty of close teams - Detroit, Toronto, Pittsburgh, Chicago (of course, then you run the risk of the CBJ being embarrassed by having thousands of more away fans show up).  I think 2016 there is a decent chance, especially if the Jackets make it deeper into the playoffs.

Comment 09 Jul 2014

I think the downtown/Arena District area could have been boosted even more by putting a more urban casino in (cough, west of Huntington Park, cough) and within walking distance of thousands of downtown hotels.  Instead, it's quite a trek out of downtown to get there and in a...how do I put this nicely...not great area.  It's more of a hassle in my opinion, rather than a nice attraction to complement the concert venues, arena, ballpark, etc.  I mean, if you live in the city, you can get to it, but it seems like it would be easier for out of town visitors if it were in the originally proposed spot instead of on the West Side.

Pretty baffling decision, imo.  But good for the mistak...I mean, Cleveland (and Ohio).
