  • 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.

So Far, So Good, now don't go back to being the same old Browns when it comes to making the actual picks!

The Browns first rounders the past three years - Justin Gilbert, Johnny Manziel, Barkavious Mingo, Trent Richardson & Brandon Weeden - it would have been hard to draft worse than that!!

I'm sure many workplaces could benefit from this kind of self analysis, but you might have to be in the military or other specialized environment where employees would be open to #3. (even if it would be of benefit to them in the long run)

Hype for The Game 2016 will dwarf the 2015's version if both Michigan and Ohio State creep into the Top 5 before the their season-ending clash on Nov. 26th.

Sparty has won 7 of the last 8 against it's little brother.  tSUN will have to get by them first. (as will we, but were going to!)

in the end the star rating is irrelevant

I think irrelevant is the wrong word - they are however highly subjective - but overall they are fairly predictive.  The other thing is 5* are the top 1% (or less) of recruits, 4* get you into the top 10% of all FBS recruits, and so being a 3* isn't too shabby - in the end it's about talent, size and mostly a desire to work, learn & win.

just like we knew that the 2015 team was not a great team.

Respectfully, I disagree - a team that didn't live up to potential, but it could/should have been great (as evidenced by the last two games).

Spring Ball will be a very different environment compared to 2015 where there were very few questions about starters and playing time. This is why they choose to come to Ohio State!
