That is a sterling record, Rubix.  I have thrown a few at obvious trolls, however I don't throw them at folks I disagree with, nor do I go down a thread and throw them at everybody, like some appear to do.  

I must admit I was giving UV for everyone on a couple of days in early January though, IIRC.

That is some good video on Craig Watts Jr.  Looks like a nice player, and seems to tackle well.

The other thing I noticed is those stands are less than half full.  Is high school football even a thing in Florida as far as fans go?  No way you see stands like that in Ohio, at least not anywhere I've been.  Not for a high school varsity game.  Just sayin'...

Puncher's Chance.  Same as we had last year.  

Frankly, I hope the odds are against us again this year.  

The Grind.

I think any comment that classic should be upvoted.

It looks more like he got the "T" for taunting afterward than hanging on the rim.  In any case, this wasn't the last play of the game, and didn't cause the overtime to happen either.  There was more basketball played after this call.

Gonzaga versus Duke should be a fun game to watch, so that's what I voted.

You can go back several years and pick out names each year of top Ohio players that didn't stay home.  

Wisconsin is a good example this year with Nigel Hayes and Trevon Jackson, and Michigan State has Javon Bess and Travis Trice, and Michigan has Caris LaVert.  Those are just guys that are on current rosters that are from Ohio, and I may have missed some others as well.  

Those are just the names that come to mind without giving it much thought.  There are lots more of Ohio's top talent that OSU either didn't get signed or that Thad didn't even recruit.  

I guess you can give a DV if you don't agree but that doesn't solidify your argument that OSU hasn't missed out on a lot of Ohio's top talent, some that Thad didn't even recruit because he apparently thought that they weren't good enough, but who had above-average careers despite that.  

In my original comment I didn't say anything about Thad Matta being replaced.  To the contrary, I think his teams have always improved from the start of the season to the finish, and if you look at my comment history you will see more than one time I have said that.  I would absolutely want to keep him as coach. To argue that Thad hasn't missed out on some of Ohio's top talent is untrue, though.

True, but my point was that OSU won the CFP and Oregon did not, even though they can lay claim to winning a game in the CFP and a game in the NCAA in the same year, they cannot lay claim to winning the CFP and winning an NCAA game in the same year.  Now, winning a CFP game and winning more than one NCAA game in the same year, well they have a shot at that and we no longer do.  

Just playing around with you on a minor point.  Not hatin'....

It is ironic that so many top-notch Ohio players do not go to OSU.  Look at Wisconsin's roster for just one example out of many.  It would be one thing if the Ohio talent wasn't good enough, but it is pathetic that OSU misses out on so many who go on to be CBB stars or at least above average players.
