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.

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.

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

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.

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.

An OSU home game on Friday night will make all the high schools in Central Ohio play on Saturday night. High school football crowds will be almost nonexistent if the Buckeyes have a home game on Friday night.

These are pros who get millions and half-millions to play pro football. They can trash talk each other all they want. It doesn't bother me. Dan Hawkins is right.

The September Heisman comment is almost an annual thing now because UM fans and the sportswriters who worship them always pump up Michigan players for the Heisman after one good game in September. Then after a couple of bad ones, their names disappear from the Heisman list. Denard, now Gardner.

Certainly not writing off any OSU freshman. Where did you think I was when I was making a point about Michigan's freshmen? I saw them play. I have eyes. Green was too fat. He needs to lose weight. Maybe he will gain some speed. He doesn't hit the holes quickly...the few that he had.

Losing Gallon will be a big hole to fill. He improved 1000% from his junior year. Dileo was not a Gallon but he made big, key catches. Those are two big losses in the receiving corps.

I'll concede you on the OL. If they can't block, a new OC won't be much of a help. Can they really be better than last season without Lewan and Schofield? The guard and center play was miserable.

Nussmeier had more talent to work with at Alabama than he does have now at Michigan. McCarron, a twice Heisman finalist in December, is much better than Gardner and Morris, the annual September Heisman candidates that disappear from the list in October. He had Lacy and Yeldon running the ball. scUM has no one even close to them in talent. Plus, Nussmeier had a great offensive line creating holes for the running backs and protecting McCarron. scUM's OL is just offensive, period. He has his work cut out.

A Buckeye fan longer than you have been, I'm sure. Just being realistic, not a cheerleader.

BTW, I have a daughter who works at the Wexner Medical Center and another one who has a degree from TOSU. I bleed Scarlet and Gray, like you do.

RE: Roby not playing because of a bad knee...I bring you, and I hate to do this, Devin Gardner playing on his bad foot and nearly beating the Buckeyes with it. That kid, even if he is a Wolver-weenie, has more guts and heart than Roby. Now I feel sick just thinking I typed those sentences.
