  • SPORTS MOMENT: Any time I'm in the Shoe! - But my most memorable experience was 1989, Cavs v Bulls. I was a season ticket holder, and the 5th game of the playoff series was the most electric atmosphere I've ever experienced. The crowd was nuts from 15 minutes before the tip until "The Shot" ripped through the net. At which point the Coliseum was completely deflated. I don't think the lead was ever more than a few points either way, Classic Game with a defining moment.

Wisky is favored in the B1G, they are top ten ranked right now,  with most everyone back from last years final four team.

Comment 17 Dec 2014

Alabama's Defense Ranks; 12th total yards (313) - 2nd against the rush (90); 59th against the pass (223); and 4th in scoring (17)

Wisky's Defense Ranks; 4th total yards (283) - 17th against the rush (119); 5th against the pass (164); and 13th in scoring (20)

So we should have more Total yards and Passing yards than we did in the B1G, but score 15% less - so Just 50 points....give or take...

The Noles have played down to their competition too many weeks, I'm not sure they are able to play UP to Oregon. OREGON Comfortably!

Chryst may be there a long while. As an alumni and former OC, he isn't going to change a lot about how Wisky operates, and Barry's got to like that.  It's a system that can keep Wisky competitive in the B1G West, Big physical lines on both sides and just pound the ball.  The lines and RBs have some history - they'll get some players and win 9-10 games a year, enough to keep him around, but not enough to bother us. 

Comment 12 Dec 2014

Which goes back to yesterday,(I think) with Wisky and Nebraska showing up OOC - and these coaching hires aren't exactly inspiring!  Like with the BCS era, when we take our top teams into the Playoffs and those other committee decided bowls, everybody moves up a slot, and we end up at a disadvantage in most bowls (This year all ten are underdogs) - But despite that - YES - we can't go 0-5 on Jan 1 and get any respect.

Since we beat the High Point Basketballers by 54 last night, do we expect their coach be going to Oregon State soon?

Comment 11 Dec 2014

Optimistic that Wisky opens the purse a little further for Assistants and get's somebody EQUAL to Gary Andersen.  Hard to see better given the two departures in such a short time, but there will be plenty of interest.  

If I'm Barry A, I'm calling Ed Warriner for a chat. (Not that I want to lose Ed, Just seems like a perfect fit)

Comment 10 Dec 2014

Shannon Scott (8.1) averages more assists than that by himself.......

Comment 10 Dec 2014

Just good enough to be respectable, but still only beat the Buckeyes maybe once a decade, Maybe.  I Love beating them, and the 2000s have been wonderful, but will a victory over them be more Indiana like than meaningful if it isn't competitive, ever?

Winning (being a Buckeye) in Football doesn't negatively affect acidemics (unless you're at UNC, except they don't actually win much at football). It's a life long benefit to being a Buckeye. But if it's not for you (Freak!) then you don't need to watch, or cheer, or care. And IF all these USN&WR rankings mattered so much, why did this woman choose to attend tOSU? Shouldn't she be at Harvard, or Oberlin? Or maybe she just couldn't get in there. 

What I do know is that tOSU is improving acidemically by leaps and bounds all the time.  I couldn't get in today with the efforts I made in HS way back when. (I would have done whatever was necessary to get there, the only school I ever even thought of attending!)

Go Bucks!!

Comment 10 Dec 2014

Get Better, - the ten year war was the best era of The Game, + with the playoffs, we need to beat better quality opponents just in case we let one game get away. It's not like they are going to get better than the Buckeyes for the foreseeable future.
