I don't think Cleveland is the greatest city in the world but if you like art, music, sports, food or beer there is plenty for outsiders to do. Plus I just think people use Cleveland for a cheap laugh, but know nothing about it or have never been there. Like you said there are much worse cities but CLE is a easy punchline for those who are oblivious so its an easy go-to.

I guess it is what you consider downtown. Most major cities don't have much going on downtown because it is a commercial district. I've noticed columbus has a bit more going on downtown lately but its pretty empty too. Same for chicago loop, nyc financial district, etc. Cleveland's best areas are ohio city and little italy/university circle imo. E 4th is always crowded too and that is downtown. I too always have a good time in CLE.

I have samsung gs6 and use samsung pay.  It is the only one I would use out of the three services because it basically works everywhere unlike android and apple which requires nfc.  It is not really that much more convenient than just using your card, but I like having it as an emergency in case I forget my wallet in the car or at my house.  Also, if your phone is already out when you are about to pay it is somewhat convenient.

I think grad transfer QBs work in the short run (especially in oregon's system), but like you said you have to develop kids because it is unlikely you can bring in a good grad transfer every season.  It doesn't seem like a sustainable strategy.

This guy is supposed to be a stud and get a very good look by NFL scouts, I would be shocked if he wasn't named the starter in spring.

I think Adams was one of the best players in the country last year, let alone QB.  If you look at the numbers there was a huge difference with him in the lineup and locke in the lineup.  If he was healthy last year, they probably make the playoffs. I think players bought in IMO.  Also, imagine if he didn't enroll like 2 weeks before the season started and played spring ball.

Haven't you learned you can't be critical or negative in any way or the thad apologists pounce on you.

First ten years at ut/osu: Barnes: 1 f4, 3 e8, 5 s16 Matta: 2 f4, 3 e8, 5 s16 Seems comparable. Since then: Barnes: 0 s16 from 09 to 15 Matta: 0 s16 from 15 to 17* assuming we miss tourney next two seasons like I said. Seems like there are a lot of similarities. You can't just use one anecdote to debunk something.

If osu misses the tournament this year and next then it should be time to move on. There are too many parallels to texas and i would rather have Shaka smart than rick barnes. I understand this society may be based too much on what have you done for me lately, but you can't sit back and let this program slip to mediocrity. If the team drops too much it makes hiring a good coach more difficult.

That seems a little different from what I'm saying.  If people come together they possibly have more power than the manager, but there are a lot of people that hate their boss and many, if not all organizations would not side with the subordinate over the manager. When it is a single person vs another single person, I feel the organization would always side with the manager. For Blatt, I don't think it was everyone going against Blatt, LeBron never wanted him there and I'm surprised it took this long to fire him.

While I think there are some good points, the situation is far from anything I can imagine in corporate America.  What organizations, outside of sports, music and film, does a manager have less power, influence, and make less money than their subordinates? Also, I feel the egos in the NBA are much greater than anything you would typically run into in any other type of organization.
