There's no argument that the worst halftime show in Super Bowl history was the Black Eyed Peas. The game itself was great that year with the Packers and Steelers but my god, that was just horrendous.

Other than that, I'd say I'm not real partial to the Janet-JT halftime. Not because of the music or anything, but because in response, they did old-timer's night for about 8 years straight with awful performances like the Who, Paul McCartney and the Stones. They were great in their prime, no doubt, but I changed the channel immediately when those came on, which is saying something because I enjoy watching the halftime shows.

Best? Michael. No argument.

Your argument makes no sense. Yeah, the team was meh when he coached them in his overall tenure but, other than 2002, who was the last coach to lead the Browns to the playoffs? Oh yeah, Bill Belichick. Not to mention, aside from his first year in NE, the guy hasn't had a record worse than 9-7 and has the team in the playoffs EVERY YEAR. In a league built for parity. Jesus, even Matt Cassel got that team to 11 wins when Brady went down.

Todd Boeckman was from St. Henry as well. I remember Bryan Gray, a reserve offensive lineman, was from Antwerp (which is in my neck of the woods) along with Daniel Dye who was a lineman on the 06 team from Napoleon.

If I had the time today, I'd go back through all the rosters on the OSU website to find out some others that were on the team throughout the years. It's pretty interesting to see that some guys got to play for the best team in the state that came from tiny schools, not just the Glenvilles and St. X's of the world.

Randall graduated from my hometown high school just three years before I did. It still doesn't seem real that his life could be taken so senselessly and that his wife and three little girls could lose the man of their lives like this. 

I assure ISIS and the rest of the world that one of our own may have been taken but the endless photos of business signs, half-staff flags and constant outpourings of support in his hometown and across the country that I see minute by minute let me know that he'll never be forgotten. Rest in Peace Randall and know that your country mourns you and your fellow servicemens' sacrifices.

It's not necessarily a promotion to the 11 pm SC, he's going it solo at midnight and it's going to be apparently way different than just the normal SC setup. September 7 I think is the first day

SVP is originally from the Baltimore area and apparently that's how they pronounce O words for real. I think they got him to laugh once a long time ago and it became a tradition when he came on on Mondays to finish their segment with him with an O word like Joe Flacco or Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano XD

Comment 16 Jun 2015

Now when it comes to the promotion part, I do agree with you. Van Pelt even said on a podcast recently that he wished ESPN would've given them the support they gave other shows. You're not wrong there. They buried it on ESPNEWS and don't televise the last hour and a half while they blow up stuff for MM and Cowherd. What a shame....

Comment 16 Jun 2015

Idk that it's ESPN's fault necessarily. SVP even said himself he wouldn't have left radio for anything except something like that. Howeva, the Video Mailbags will be sorely missed

Comment 16 Jun 2015

Good for you Chicago! Keith and Toews and Sharp and Kane and all those guys are one hell of a team. One of these days, my Blue Jackets are going to get a playoff series win.....

Comment 15 Jun 2015

As a Cleveland fan, I'd love it if Steph had 0 points and the Cavs won the series. But you're totally right. Ever since the end of the Shaq/Kobe Lakers dynasty, there's been a whole lot of snoozefests in the Finals. (But man, that 2013 Miami-SA 7-gamer was intense). I totally understand the frustration especially when this is the most talented Cleveland team to contend for a championship maybe ever if they're fully healthy. But it will happen. Someday....

Comment 15 Jun 2015

Am I the only Cavs fan that doesn't hate this guy? Seriously people get over yourselves.

"I hate him because he's arrogant" "I hate him because he acts high-and-mighty" "I hate him because he chews on his mouthpiece"

The dude is one of the better shooters this league has seen maybe ever and people can't actually enjoy a series that puts the best of the best in the NBA against one another. Sure I hated it when he went en fuego in the fourth and destroyed us. But that doesn't mean he's some bum or didn't deserve the MVP. If you guys don't like a Pistons fan calling the Steph hate pathetic, then fine. I will. Grow up and quit acting like any kind of arrogance you perceive doesn't exist on 75% of the players in the league.

Comment 06 May 2015

I like the move of putting Tristan in the starting lineup. His tenacity and crazy-good rebounding are a catalyst  for so much on this team. If someone can explain to me why LeBron just won't drive to the hoop when he's getting space, that would be awesome. 

Comment 19 Apr 2015

I think it's got to be Cleveland and Golden State in the Finals. Nobody in the East can stop the Cavs when they're on (though I think it'll go 7 with Atlanta in the ECF). Golden State is for real and I think it'll be a classic with San Antonio in the WCF. Although, if the Clips can play like they're capable of and take advantage of Splitter being injured, I think LA could top them in the first round. 

My pick: Cleveland over the Splash Brothers in 7 games

Comment 04 Apr 2015

How is a team with the size of Kentucky this bad at defensive rebounding? They're talented as hell but good lord, Wisconsin is getting every loose ball 

Comment 04 Apr 2015

Anytime. I guess if you'd prefer a Wisconsin homercast, TruTV is always there for you haha

Comment 04 Apr 2015

Sam Dekker came to play! I'd be a much bigger fan of his if his lady friend didn't have a certain predilection towards a "university" of which we do not speak. 

Comment 04 Apr 2015

I've got a real good feeling about this game. I think we're looking at one that goes right down to the wire. 

Although now that I've said that, I'm sure it'll end up as a blowout
