I agree, Mike. Navy almost beat the Buckeyes a few years ago and they do a lot of cut blocking. I hope no OSU player gets hurt because of that.

8-4 is good for me. I'd like to see more of those 8-4 LLLLoyd Carr years up there with no Big Ten titles.

Comment 10 Jul 2014

Now I know where Hoke(y) got the idea of calling Ohio State "Ohio." He must have seen that photo.

Comment 02 Jul 2014

8-5 for the Wolver-weenies. No big wins to brag about and plenty of big-time defeats (Notre Dame, MSU and Ohio State...and Penn State). Loss #5 is their bowl game.

It seems to me that the real purpose of going to a game for today's student is to take selfies of yourself and your friends, facebook, tweet, instagram, and generally spend 3 and 1/2 hours on your cell phone. Does the game on the field matter any more? I went to college many years ago and actually spent most of my time at football games watching the game...and a few girls, of course. Call me an old goat, or whatever the new descriptors are for football fans like me, but the game on the field is more important than anything else...except the girl watching, of course.

That was Ken Daniels from the Red Wings, not Ken Kal.

Toledo has made great strides over the years to improve the football team's APR. Before Beckman and Campbell came aboard as head coaches, the program was in the crapper on and off the field. The Rockets lost some schollies due to laziness from their head coach. By the way, one of the reasons why Toledo has improved its APR is due to the adoption of some of Jim Tressel's ways of monitoring their players in the classroom. Beckman was a former assistant at OSU under Tressel, if you remember.

To the Blackhawk fans on this site, do you remember how empty the United Center was when old man Bill Wirtz was in his last years of owning the team? You could walk up to the UC on game day and get in without any problem. I have a friend in Chicago who talked to beer vendors who barely made any money in those losing years up to Rocky Wirtz taking over the team. So don't dump on Columbus fans and attendance at their games. You have a lot of fans who would jump off the team's bandwagon if the Hawks became the Buffalo Sabres next year.

Oh one more thing, Hawk fans: do you remember when the Red Wings fans would fill half the building against the Blackhawks in those years the Hawks stunk?

My computer was acting up, Squirrel Master. Sorry if I was late. Sarcasm intended.

Check his profile. He's a Penguin fan trashing the team that beat his bums last night.

Comment 22 Apr 2014

You've got to be kidding that the Clowns will roll Seattle by 30 in the next Super Bowl. The only way Cleveland gets to see the Super Bowl is the way they always get to see it: on TV.

Comment 17 Apr 2014

The Stanley Cup playoffs are the best of all the team sports. The hockey is fast-paced and grueling. It takes two months and 16 wins to become the NHL's champions. The teams play almost every other day or night. It takes its toll on the players and the fans, and the reward is the best trophy in sports.

Comment 14 Apr 2014

That's definitely correct. No spring game at any university should have a $20 ticket. All of them should be five bucks because that's about all they're worth, especially when a lot of starters are sitting out the game.

I noticed the south end zone was closed off due to construction. That limited the overall capacity of the stadium for the game.

Comment 01 Apr 2014

I don't care for any of them. I guess the Badgers are the lesser of all the evils left in the tournament.

Comment 31 Mar 2014

There's way too many of them on Toledo, too. Whenever they win a game (any game, football, basketball, chess, etc.), they show up outside in their mustard and blue crap like you-know-what coming out of the woodwork.

Comment 29 Mar 2014

Those creampuffs didn't get the Buckeyes ready for the Big Ten games. 10-8 is not only disappointing in the conference, it stinks. It would help the team get ready for the conference by playing a game or two against Dayton, etc. instead of the creampuffs and yawn producers from conferences no one's ever heard of that also don't help draw the big crowds to Value City Arena.

Comment 29 Mar 2014

I'd rather see the Buckeyes play the likes of Dayton, Toledo (now that my alma mater finally has a team worth watching and talking about), Xavier and Cincy than creampuffs like Central Connecticut State, Morgan State, Bryant and North Florida. Is Matta trying to avoid playing them? Does he prefer to pick daffodils? That's the impression I get from all of this.
