I went to high school with Nick Conner. He's not necessarily a blue chip recruit, but I have no doubt he'll be great at Ohio State. Smart kid (honor roll student), humble and very driven/motivated. Very happy for him.

I told a friend the exact same thing about Delly and Craft. Good minds think alike.

Comment 23 May 2015

Which fans aren't biased? Come on now. And to be fair, I said my identity as a Cavs fan doesn't help/hurt my argument either. 

I'll hand you a fact (not an opinion). The Cavs are 2 wins away from the NBA Finals. 2 wins from being champs of the conference. That's pretty successful, if you ask me. Only 2 teams can say they reach the Finals. 28 cannot. Ohio's professional teams are typically mediocre or worse, so this is a big deal to this great state.

Well, I didn't talk to you in 2001, so I wouldn't know what you said specifically. Haha. I just don't understand why you can't give credit where it's due. LeBron and the Cavs are rolling right now, whether you love/hate it.

I'm all done here. Enjoy your holiday!

You won't give credit where it's due. I get it, man. Me being a Cavs fan doesn't help/hurt my argument either. That's irrelevant. You just come off as bitter about the Cavs' success this year.

Different team, different season. Did OSU's recent history against the SEC affect their game against Bama this past January? Your argument is flawed. I'm not going to defend the East being better than the West (just like I wouldn't say the B1G is better than the SEC as a whole), but the point is the Cavs are a legitimate squad. Judge the team, not their conference.

The Cavs have won 14 of the last 15 games against Western Conference teams. The only loss was in OT at Houston (a game Kyrie did not play in and LeBron had arguably the worst free throw shooting game in his career). Don't think the "Eastern Conference" card is valid anymore.

Notable wins include: Clippers (2x), Thunder, Grizzlies, Spurs, Mavericks, Blazers, Suns and, wait for it, Warriors (by double digits).

Siesta Key is great. Family friendly and the sand is like powder!

I also love the Cayman Islands. The Caribbean, in general, is incredible. 

Comment 21 May 2015

Absolutely beautiful there. Clearest water I've ever seen. I got to swim with stingrays there. Terrifying, but great experience!

Comment 20 May 2015

I usually shave once a week. Clean shaven is the way to go for me.

Comment 18 May 2015

Oh man... I hate bugs/arachnids/insects with a passion. I kill 'em when I see 'em. I have a soft spot for some spiders. They help a good bit with the "hunting" of some of the pests.

To answer the question, I hate mosquitoes and wasps. Evil creatures! Mosquito bites are a near regular thing for me in the summer. I live by woods/wetlands, and they're everywhere. I've been stung on the ankle by a yellow jacket/wasp before (not much "padding" there). Hurt like a you-know-what!

This article is exactly why it grinds my gears when people go after Thad's head. He's done so much for the program. Sure, OSU isn't a Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina, UConn, etc. program, but Matta has brought us a long way.
