Been trying to temper expectations a tad in my downer posts about the teams inexperience ... but hell we are Buckeye Fans and can't help thinking we should win the natty every year. With the recruiting classes Urban and company reels in, it would not be a shocker if bucks exceed expectations for sure.
If Lyle could average say 18 points a night and distribute the ball well, be the QB for the team, the bucks will be MUCH improved.
The water boy for the buckeyes probably has a PhD in chemistry and is a former Commissioner of Hydration for the NFL.
Hi, I have been in a state of suspended animation the last two years and trying to catch up on buckeye news. So, Luke Fickell has probably been fired by now, right?
And CGFM wins the internet today ...
All of the millennials are thinking "that's a clock?" ;~}
More fans who don't watch the NBA (and some college basketball) is because of the constant parade to the line.
Maybe a rule where a particular player, being it the center or the point guard (any player), gets fouled the sixth time and beyond the team also gets possession of the ball. That way it helps prevent the player from being injured and makes the strategy of hacking the center or fouling a really good offensive player to hope they don't make both (or all three) free throws something to consider.
High (maybe too) praise indeed ...
How do players hit that fading backwards jump shot, just boggles my mind.
I'm loathed to bet against the Smaller Bear, but my unsolicited pick is still wide receiver Austin Mack, who I have yet to hear or read a negative thing about
Good call, wasn't Mack the first freshman to ever lose their black stripe during the spring?
Female probably but left handed? The lettering would be smeared some in that case. I know from experience. :)
Great ideas Eric! Love the dot the i thought. LeBron, the kid from Akron who has become a living legend, clearly deserves that honor.
Well, great ideas all except anything involving Dan Gilbert LOL.
As someone who suffers from panic attacks that were so severe at one point thought I was going to lose my job, my marriage, my ability to support my family and lived in constant fear, the stories that many have shared here with us resonated with me and I wish everyone in the 11W community all the best and the courage to reach out for help if you need to do so. Mental health issues are slowly but surely becoming less of a stigma in our society. In many cases depression and panic / anxiety disorders are due in part to individuals not being able to utilize neurotransmitters, they don't effectively cross the brain - blood barrier. I hate to take pharmaceuticals but an antidepressant (and it was a year or two of hell finding one that worked) really did help me. Of course, therapy, a good diet, exercise, getting some sunshine and trying to get as much positive input as possible helps. Even with all that, I still sometimes feel the monster lurking in the background.
JALIN MARSHALL - great news, thanks for sharing DJ
HEY DJ ... are you excited about the new season of Mr. Robot??? You turned me on to that show, a little dark and disturbing but pretty addictive IMO and very relevant to what is going on these days relative to cyber security and the potential for great harm to come to our financial, power, and political infrastructure with a skilled, targeted hack.
That's a paltry 25 pound dumbbell, of solid gold.
Gold is about $1300 an ounce, I think my math is right on that ...
Own it AND get paid big bucks while doing it.
My friends up in NE Ohio thought I was crazy when I told them after the Cavs were down 1 - 3 not to lose faith they still had a decent shot. I told them if they won game 5 they were back home where they would probably win, then toss a coin for game 7.
I got a lot of grief from them back when LeBron left Cleveland for Miami and I told them I would still follow and root for LBJ.
This is one of the most incredible sports moments ever, I definitely had some dust in my eyes.
No team has ever come back in the NBA finals down 1 - 3 but ...
"Records are made to be broken"

Yeah, he definitely has anger management issues, I can vouch to that from personal experience.
Glad our mascot is taking part in the parade.
Also glad DJ brought the issue up, a forum on the topic was closed down yesterday and a followup comment by me earlier today was deleted. Apparently if a staff member first brings up a social issue it is then OK to post your thoughts, otherwise overzealous Mods will err on the side of caution. Understood up to a point, being a moderator is no doubt a difficult and thankless job. Sometimes social issues do intersect with the sports world though so in my mind you allow respectful posts on the subject or else we just stick our heads in the sand. Admittedly I do have a bias towards inclusiveness and people coming together ... unless they are fans of TTUN (just kidding ... kind of).
Game seven Sunday as I (by pure luck, and lots of others did too) predicted. If the Cavs win LeBron has to be in the GOAT discussion, or at least top three all time. Would be great if Kevin Love had a breakout game, he's way overdue.
I wonder what the "punishment factor" is when you eject a player after they have already fouled out?! They just get a head start on taking a shower.
It's now removed. Man, I should have made a screen print.
Priceless! Next time I see ANYTHING you post Fatpants I will UV it!
Then again, I always do anyway ...
