It was a lot higher before I read the article about all the other freshmen QBs who had to take over from missing seniors . . .
Sad loss. Depression is terrible. He brought so much laughter to so many, I never would have suspected.
That image is worthy of stealing -- so I will
There definitely seems to be an OSU-Steelers pipeline building. Not a Steelers fan, but the organization knows how to find good talent, and it makes sense they are getting so many Buckeyes. Jordan Hall grew up in the Pittsburgh area, so he has a double connection. Hope he gets a roster spot or at least a place on the practice squad.
I agree. He seems like a great guy that I would root for personally no matter what team he plays for.
He'd be one of the few guys who could honestly claim his day job is tougher than football practice.
Wonder if they can pick up some receiving help on the waiver wire . . . but even so it takes a while to learn a playbook.
The Game, the Game, a thousand times the Game.
Shame on you for laying out such a scary scenario.
I agree that it's a friendly rivalry. They play a very few regular season games that are for the most part meaningless in a 162 game schedule, and we were all very civil to the Indians fans and I expect they were civil to the Reds fans up there -- but if they should ever meet in the World Series, it would be a lot more serious. . . and the baseball bigwigs would be appalled that two relatively low-budget teams in 'flyover country' are killing their post-season ratings in the big media centers.
Just got back from the game -- very nice pitching and defensive performance by the Reds . . . a bit of good offense . . . too many thrills and chills from Hamilton on the base paths . . . and Broxton strikes out the last two batters to secure free LaRosas pizzas for all ticket holders, plus the win. It couldn't have been much better.
I feel your pain PittBuckeye, that's why I only spend money on leagues where we all get together at a bar and draft. At least that way I can try to stay more sober than those around me -- I still make the occasional boneheaded move, but at least I don't usually get the IR guys until the later rounds.
In other news, Reds sign Homer Bailey to 6-year, $105 million contract.
Smacks head. "D'oh!!!!"
Same thing I thought -- I wonder if this is Bert's anonymous twitter account.
My boss just gave us a kinder and gentler approach -- no death match, but no more OT is allowed. And if we have to work late some days, we just work flex hours . . . so I'm planning on flexing into a few Fridays off. Take that, Sith Lords.

And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.
Willie Cunningham, is that you?
I'm old enough to remember Sam Rutigliano and the Inner Circle for substance abuse support. That was back in the 70’s when the scourge of cocaine was going through the league. If they don’t still have something like that program, I wish the Browns would resurrect it to help guys like Gordon. Rutigliano was justifiably proud of it.
But in the short-term, I doubt he sees the field in 2014.
A guy I know is working 12 hours triple-time OT each day of the weekend . . . I think he's making $1800/day this long weekend. God Bless America.
I'm always forgetting and asking the person next to me, "Hey, doesn't he have three strikeouts?" . . . then when the third and fourth go up, I remember. The memory is the first thing to go.
