I think Ohio State 59,  Wisconsin 0 was the best game of the season.  Best game by one team anyway.  does that count?

Comment 29 Jul 2015

I am pretty fascinated with that stuff too, but especially the Mound Builders.   Ohio is nuts.

I've always wanted to read "The Frontiersman".  but I gotta be honest, that book is way too big for me.  I would never survive.  The story of Tecumseh is so epic though, I can't believe no one has made a movie about it yet.  Even living in Tennessee now, there is a lake called Reelfoot Lake in western Tennessee, that didn't exist until The New Madrid Earthquake rerouted the Mississippi River and left that lake where it used to be.   It blows peoples minds when I tell them how Tecumseh predicted that earthquake, and how it was supposed to be the call to arms for all the Native tribes from Texas to Michigan to go to war with the U.S.    ...pretty dang epic.

Teddy scored a touchdown on 1 of every 4 times he touched the ball his freshman year.  Once other teams became aware of his awesomeness, I think it dropped all the way down to 1 out of 6.   ... I'll take him.

This, and the return against Minnesota, are among my all time favorite sports highlights.

I never had a problem with ESPN, or really any sports media (except Pat Forde, that guy was always a tool) until the rabid dog coverage of Tatgate.  It was like a feeding frenzy of great white sharks!  the constant front page coverage of Tatgate while in comparison, barely covering the tidal wave of much more serious college football scandals in the few years following (Penn State being the exception), makes it really hard to forgive them.  I mean they raked us over the coals and piled it on for a looong time.  even going so far as to sue OSU to try to get more info to bring us down with.  And having reporters stationed on campus for weeks at a time.  All for a story about tattoos and jerseys.   i think it was only a year later, when Miami got busted for have a longtime booster, who was an actual criminal, breaking actual laws, (not NCAA "laws" but Actual USA laws) like taking high school kids on Yachts with drugs and hookers, and it got maybe 1/5th the coverage and animosity that we got.   

I was so embarrassed and mortified.  and living in the south, I see how easily ESPN controls what the rest of the country's opinions are on the teams they don't follow.  ( does that make sense?  I mean everyone who doesn't follow OSU, or is neutral on OSU, has their opinions on OSU shaped by the head lines and coverage, that ESPN gives.)  They over blow a Tatgate and then proceed to take little jabs at us and patronize our accomplishments in the years following, until we finally win the Championship and they are left with no choice but to finally give us some credit.  I know they don't hate us, I never thought they did for the obvious reasons you stated.  But I definitely think they've done our national perception some real damage up until this year.  and they've ruined my day quite a few times by giving all the S.E.C fans I live amongst some serious ammunition to throw at me.  most of it overblown, inaccurate, hyperbole that the rest of the country blindly accepts as fact.

regardless of whether they actually hate us, or are just poking us with a stick to get a rise (ratings), the bottom line is, I don't like it.

Comment 17 Jun 2015

What about this idea?  keep Delly and add Nate Robinson as the backup Point Guards.  that way, if the situation calls for more scoring off the bench, go with Nate, and if it calls for more defense, go with Delly.

Yeah man!  The Objective quality of something, and whether you personally enjoy it or not, are two totally different things.  I get into this argument with people all the time.  I might say a certain song is a terrible song,  but that doesn't mean I don't enjoy it.  or that movie, "There Will Be Blood".  After that movie I said, "That is probably one of the best movies I've ever seen.  I didn't really enjoy it though."   When I say something is good, I mean it's well made, or composed, or thoughtfully and artistically constructed.  it has some depth to it.  Even if I don't personally enjoy the work itself, at the very least I can appreciate the creativity, and the effort of the person that made it.

unless these kids are Japanese or something and their hair is just naturally that color.  In which case, ... I am a butthead.

guys guys guys.  this is hardcore dancing.  this is like how people dance at a Hatebreed show.  or at least they used to back in the late 90's and early 00's.   but, judging from the uniform tight pants and dyed black hair, this probably takes place somewhere between '05 and '11.   hardcore's just not as popular anymore.
