Just to add to this for those who might be wondering, Ohio State's final RPI from last season was 78.
Well, it's not terrible...I mean, in some year's past they've only had one tough game in the OOC.
It's only May 24th.
Let's not get all crazy with the reactionary posts to insignificant and meaningless preseason rankings, predictions, and etc. until at least after Memorial Day...After that, feel free.
I don't know that the kick was intentional, but I just wanted him to be suspended cause he's a total douche-nozzle. But I figured this would be the outcome. Like it or not, the league doesn't like to suspend their 'star' players.
Of course. I've been dreaming since the Schottenheimer-Kosar days, my friend...
Sorry. Wrong Annie...
So when should we expect her to be employed by Fox?
You might have a point there...
I like Brian Hartline, and I mean no slight to him when I say this, but I'm surprised the guy has made it 7 years in the NFL.
And good for him. When he left OSU early to enter the draft (supposedly cause he didn't wanna play with TP anymore), I thought he was crazy. I wasn't even sure he'd get drafted. But he did and I'm pretty sure he'll get picked up by another team here shortly.
Let me clarify my comment. I wasn't speaking about game broadcasts.
Nobody watches FS1 for their other non-game programming, whereas people still watch ESPN's.
Such a great stache.
Ha. Me neither. I just happened to see a story about him leaving ESPN and Fox offering him in the neighborhood of 5+ million a year...which is beyond crazy money for a guy who makes his living saying stupid shiz.
Plays in 10 games at Ohio State. Transfers. Plays in 0 games at Oklahoma. Transfers.
I'm not sure where you go from there...or how long he'll have to sit out if/when he finds a landing spot.
Yeah. Fox is spending a ton of money and loading up on talent, but I don't think their content is (at this point) much better. Nobody watches FS1. And I'm not sure that will change any time soon.
ESPN is just so ingrained in people. It's like Bing trying to compete with Google.
FYI: Bayless is leaving after the NBA Finals. He signed a HUGE deal with Fox.
Man. Fox is doing their best to compete and take down the worldwide leader, aren't they?
Hugh Freeze is all like:
They did beat Alabama twice. So there's that.
I know how the recruiting game is played, but every time I read one of these stories about a kid who's committed to a school and is still looking around (which is fine, do your due diligence, make the best decision for you), I can't help but ask, why did you commit to a school already? What was the rush?
People think of Bird as being a great shooter and all, which he was, but if you compare Bird's stats with the most prolific 3 point shooters (Reggie Miller, Ray Allen, Curry), Bird's attempts are actually pretty low.
He attempted less than 2000 3's in his career, whereas Curry's already over 3000 and Miller and Allen attempted over 6000 and 7000.
So many STD's at such a small price...
Curry is an incredible player. That can't be argued. And sure, the dude looks like he's yet to go through puberty and is mildly annoying (whereas Draymond Green is SUPER annoying), but I respect his game. I root against him because I'm not a Warriors fan, but I can recognize and respect amazing talent when I see it.
The thing I'm more surprised about is that nobody has ever won the MVP award unanimously. That's frickin ridiculous.
Maybe they're winning "a ton of games" despite having him on their staff...just like it seems Tress did.
Let's face it, from 01 to 11, we were all Bollman'd...
