I'm telling ya I love that old arena it has character and its still freakin beautiful on the inside! Lets retrofit some air conditioning in that place (except for the visitors locker room) add a few upgrades here and there and play some select bball games in that place every year especially against those teams from up north. #atruehomecourtadvantage

First of all that's UCLA blue so does it really even count? Second Lou is essentially a Buckeye grew up in East Liverpool went to Kent State and coached under Woody and that year they won the NC and that was all way before the Notre Dame days. He was also the guy who told Urban to go coach at BGSU which if that never happened none of us are yelling out Undisputed right now. Stop bashing on my man Lou and turn your hate talk back to Mark May.

Oh and Nigel Hayes is awesome!

Love the hardware! All of the accolades are well deserved!

*** Those pics show that St. John Arena is still a very beautiful and classy building with real character. Wish they could install some air conditioning upgrade it just a bit and then play a few bball games there every year.

Before all is said and done JT will OWN about 80% of all Ohio State passing records. That's all.

That would be nice but we might as well sit back and enjoy a stellar year from Thomas because after it's over he's going to get paid well to play on Sundays. Remember at OSU we just reload with the next stud waiting in line... it's good to be a Buckeye!

I'm just going to start holding my hand over the CB area of that site... that damn CB area has just gotten out of control lately and I don't have time to let my mind be bothered by all of the madness.

LOL I know he does and that's why I always wait for a Wiltfong & Loy combo because I know some of Loy's ND sources... I will always give more weight to a Wiltfong CB.

Comment 26 Mar 2015

Does anyone know if Tom Loy has CB'd him to ND as well? Usually you need to watch for a Wiltfong & Loy combo CB and then it's a pretty good indicator. 

By the way it DOES matter that it's a Catholic school if you are coming from a Catholic family. Somebody said that a lot of schools are Christian but if you are a true practicing Catholic simply being a Christian is not the same as being a Catholic.

Urban is a better coach! Urban is a better recruiter! Urban is the freaking King of college football right now! Nine times out of ten Urban will beat Kelly on and off the field. The one exception is with a kid coming from a Catholic family and a Catholic High School. It just is what it is.... I don't know why anyone is shocked by this. Besides Urban and Ed will just go find a better OL somewhere else.

Ask Mike Krzyzewski this question. All I can say is that you can't say that you like Woody Hayes and then say you hate Bob Knight. My Grandpa was cut from the same cloth and he was rough around the edges but I love these kind of men even though they are disappearing from the earth way too fast. He was a seriously flawed human being and did some idiotic things and yes said some really stupid ass things. Three of his best friends were Ted Williams, Bill Parcels and Tony LaRusa. It's funny how the younger generation they love Steve Jobs (as do I) even though they never knew him but truth be told they could never have worked for him just as they could never play for Bobby because essentially Steve was just the hippie on LSD version of Bobby Knight. I love non conformists they are ridiculously honest to a fault unlike a politician and some of the realist people you'll ever meet on this earth but it's really hard to survive and thrive nowadays if you are one of them.

All 3 of their contracts are up so they can kidnap the stig and sign a deal with another network. Either way it's an end to an era. Def the best car/reality show of all time. I don't condone hitting your boss although I've wanted to a time or two in the past. It's not easy being a non conformist in a politically correct world.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

I would almost put money down to go against that opinion of yours 305. Remember it's a committee led by an SEC member and remember it's ESecPN who has the most money invested in this. I would be completely shocked if an SEC team isn't in the playoffs this year. If it were to happen then watch out it will be a 6 or 8 team playoff the very next year because they will throw the 3yo temper tantrum of all temper tantrums until they get their way. Remember that it was Mark Emmert who hired Saban at LSU. I say that the ACC gets left out this year and the only thing that could ever screw it all up for the SEC is an undefeated Notre Dame but I don't see that happening either but now that I think about it if Notre Dame's only loss were to an undefeated USC then it could get real interesting.

what I want to happen (not what I expect to happen)

OSU

Notre Dame

USC

Bama

I wish you were right but Kevin leaving does NOT free up any money. The way the NBA works if he opts out and leaves and they already have 2 max salaries on the team with Bron and Kyrie the Cavs are already within a few million of the cap. Because they already have Love they can sign him to a huge deal and go over that cap without being penalized whatsoever by the league. If Love leaves and they go sign another big salary guy they will by league rules be waaaaaaaaaaay over the cap and get severely crushed by the league in penalties even with the Brandon Haywood contract they would still be essentially screwed. Love opting out would only leave them with enough money to go after a marginal bench player but not a stud and not even a starter. Not only that they need to sign Thompson and Shumpert as well. Now everything changes if they can do a SIGN & TRADE deal with Love. This is the only way they can bring in another stud player to replace him without getting penalized. If that doesn't happen they will be left hanging without Love and without Wiggins and only the ability to sign an off the bench guy to take their place. 

What you have to wish for is that Kevin has a shiny ring on his finger loves it and loves having lots of money in his pocket because Cleveland by league rules can offer him more money than any other team can. Will they do that though is the question because some experts have said they will not offer him a max deal. It will definitely be interesting to see what happens over the next 6 months or so.

RosenBuck in your gut what is your percentage that Kevin WANTS to stay in Clevelend for the next 4-5 years??? I say it's about 20% even with a ring on his finger. I think if he has the option to go back West and be a teams number 1 or 2 option be closer to his family and gf that he won't say no to that.

All of your points are valid but what you are saying is that Love is cool with averaging 16 and 10 being a third option on the court, not being an All-Star, not getting promo deals, and not being a max salary player instead of being a 26 and 12 max salary player with all the perks involved. Chris Bosh went through that as well and then he vented pretty hard about it after LeBron left. It's really hard being the leader then just being another follower and loving it even though your talent has not been diminished by age yet. I know that a Kevin Love doesn't grow on trees and I hope he stays I really do but guys like Wiggins don't grow on trees either. If he stays then great I hope I am wrong but as of today I am not feeling it at all and because of that I think a sign and trade is the best way to salvage the entire situation.

Oden needs to go play overseas plain and simple or retire.... just my opinion. If he makes it over there then come back. He would not be a good fit with the Cavs at this point in the season. Mosgov, Thompson, Love and Perkins are more than enough down low to get through the East. We will have to wait and see if they will be enough to beat the champion from the West.
