Grew up in the subs north of Columbus and remember throwing tantrums when 8 years old and Woody's Buckeyes would lose. Now living in Italy and started reading Eleven Warriors on a daily basis after Coach Meyer was hired.

I doubt Urban slept but he did sweep through opponents to NC with 1 top 50 pick in draft. (Wink)

It is so ridiculous that people blame Urban for Hernandez. It's against all logic and reason. Think about this... What if a player committed a crime playing college ball, and it doesn't matter what crime, and then how about we blame his high school coach for it. People don't know how to think anymore.

Well given that financial planning is my job, I think I have some basis for saying it would a terrible decision, at least financially.

I think this is precisely your problem. You are just seeing the financial reasons and dollar signs in this equation. I'm not saying this isn't important but leaving college to play in the NBA deals with more than just money matters. The college game is a completely different animal than the NBA and maybe, just maybe, Russell wants to have another year of the college experience. Once you leave college, you are done for life in that arena and the rest of your playing days is in the NBA. Ya think maybe he might want another year in the college experience and all the positives that come with it? I don't know, but it's his decision and to say it would be dumb not to go to the NBA is quite presumptuous.

You may be right about Buck telling off Wexner(which I happen to like) but who had more to gain by it being built?

However, nice story about Buck. Thanks for that.

Comment 19 Feb 2015

On "Buck" being mayor when the 670 project got off the ground, I think the real force behind it was Wexner, not Buck. Oh and living in Italy has it's advantages to making the first comment on the early Skullys. Thanks DJ. (What do you do DJ? Write the Skully the night before, set your alarm for 4:30am and post it?)

ESecPN is still ESecPN. The disrespect of the B1G and the over valued SEC has not gone any where. Wish I could boycott ESecPN.

Playing fast and being fast are two different things. Of course the Buckeyes have the speed to keep up with anyone in the country(being fast), but do they have the stamina to play fast as the Ducks offense if the Ducks snap the ball every 16 seconds(playing fast). As it's been stated several times before, if the Buckeyes can stop them quickly by getting some 3 and outs, then that slows down the Ducks offense and they will not snap the ball every 16 seconds. This will allow the defense to get a few extra seconds between snaps which will give the Buckeyes better odds to win the game. GO BUCKS!!!!

I have issues with apple tv too with espn so I use the computer or ipad which doesn't freeze. The problem is the espn feed failed during the B1G championship game so I'm leery. I have a back up internet stream feed on

It's really sad how Tress gets so much negative press because of tatgate. What people don't know is that Tress was protecting his players from bodily harm and danger. If he reported those infractions, it would have made public their names and some shady characters who were part of the FBI investigation could retaliate. He put his players well being ahead of some NCAA by-laws just as a father would for his sons. He said himself that if he had to do it over again, he wouldn't change a thing. That means his conscience is clear and in the eyes of God he did the right thing. If you don't like it, then that's your problem, take care of your own conscience because when you point the finger at others, you have 3 others pointing right back at you.

JT is a great man and has done so much for others, not just on the football field. God bless you Jim Tressel.

The interception was not Cardale's fault. Urb's said as much.

Comment 04 Jan 2015

I believe that the B1G teams in the bowls were ranked lower in every game(Sagrin rankings - nothing to do with Vegas). So going 5-5 isn't bad at all.
