I was wondering when someone would mention The Strokes. One of my personal favorites.

Other favorites include the White Stripes, Breaking Benjamin, and a childhood favorite:Blink 182.

The Swellers may be my favorite current band though. They are retiring soon which is a shame, but they are one of the finest bands I have seen in recent memory.

That would surprise me. Marshall is real quick and has great vision but his top end speed isn't phenomenal. 4.6 or 4.5 sounds about right.

I have liked what Curtis Grant has done the past two years. The defense has looked better with Grant on the field at time, although Raekwon seems to always be around the ball. Honestly, they have both done well so I cannot complain much.

I actually do not remember a time this year when a screen went for big yardage. There have been some decent gains out of screens to the running back, but the cornerbacks (particularly Apple) have done a top notch job of shedding blocks and stopping screens. I guess we will find out on January 1 if it translates to a team like Alabama.

I think being realistic as possible is the way to go. I had a bad feeling that Ohio State would lose to Michigan State and Clemson last year, so the losses really weren't that bad. Well, they were bad because the games were closer than I imagined. This year, I have been nervous about both the MSU and Wisconsin game, and they have been so much fun to watch.

Hyde was a great back, but much of his success has to be attributed to the best offensive line Ohio State has had in a long time. I would have loved to see Beanie in that offense. Both of those guys could have gone over 2,000 yards with full seasons and good offensive lines.

Michael Wiley and Robert Smith were quick too. Perhaps faster and quicker than Elliot. Curtis Samuel might be faster and quicker than Elliot.  However, Ezekiel Elliot is an outstanding blocker, is big, runs hard, has good vision and is still very fast. He is a top notch runner and Ohio State is lucky to have him.

I worry about the inclusion of too many teams. I would like to see the playoff go to eight teams if they are going to stick with a playoff. This gives the conference champions and three at-large teams a chance to compete for the championship. This would keep the regular season relevant, while at the same time giving spots to teams who may be the best. I just don't want it to turn into a March Madness situation. Obviously it will not reach the amount of teams, but I want the National Champion to be the best and most deserving team in the country. That does not often happen in a large tournament.

Tevin Coleman might even be better. Wisconsin's line is just better than Indiana's line.

Hopefully Cardale plays well enough to make people speculate over where JT is going to transfer. 

I am kidding, obviously. I hope JT makes a full recovery and Cardale makes the most of this opportunity.

Comment 25 Nov 2014

I like Brady Hoke. Like someone mentioned above, he acted with class when that kid had cancer. In fact, he gave him tickets to The Game. Brady Hoke is a good guy. Also, Michigan is in a place where I never thought they would be. What's not to love about him? I feel bad for the guy, but he has handled everything well.

I don't know. I have lived in Draper for a few years now and I think the weather is pretty similar to Ohio. Park City can get real cold, but Draper (where Bowen lives) is not that bad. I would say it is comparable to Columbus.
