Apparently this guy doesn't know, there is only one "THE" anything and that's THE Ohio State University...butt hurt much?

I cannot consider PSU a rival...they are always great game but I think its a Penn St thing with the rivalry. I believe they think if that say it enough, everyone will believe it. I consider Wisky more of a rival than PSU. Just my opinion though. Glad to see Franklin doing a good job, but I fear he will bail to the NFL as he was already looked at for a few jobs. I could be wrong but he seems like the NFL is his ultimate goal.

Being from Findlay, when you stated the fact of the Wal-Mart Wolverines...that was the exact picture that popped into my head, very nice sir

I fully agree that Dayton deserves their moment. I am happy for them on making it this far, and beating the elite in the process is even better. Sadly, that's where it all ends. By no means can they rank themselves at the level of Ohio State, Syracuse, Duke, etc. Give me consistent play, and I'll take back what I just said. The sad truth of it is, after the tourney is over, regardless of how Dayton finishes, they will more than likely become irrelevant again, its how this works. If they prove me wrong, then cool, but they probably will not. One win against upper echelon teams does not solidify your place at the "big boy" table.

We're not talking about neutral site games. We're talking about OOC games that take place up North. Like if Florida cam to The Shoe in November, or the Big House to play games. No matter how good the team is, going from a moderately hot or warm climate to the brutal cold of Ohio, Michigan, or Iowa during the winter months would effect any team that is not used to it. They're simply stating these schools, even if they were to be scheduled would simply not do it for the fact of the weather. Come talk to me when we see Bama, Florida, LSU, or Auburn go play in the snow Ohio State, or any of the Northern teams regularly play in each year.

Good on Mizzou heading to Toledo, and all the other teams heading to colder climates, but either way the B1G won't schedule these, so I guess we will never know how willing some teams are to travel, but I still think we will never see Bama, or others like them in the Northern states when it counts.

Glad to see Sabino get picked up by a team. Hope he does well there with the Rams, plus he'll have Little Animal with him too!!

Read his book when I was deployed in Afghanistan...an amazing read. Also made me more aware of how sideways a simple patrol could go..the Bucks are very lucky to have heard him speak.

Pretty stoked were in Gibson's top 3. I think our only competition is Miami.

Fickell scares me. It seems he shows that "senior bias" a lot with players. Just b/c the guy is a senior does not mean he should be playing. You cannot over look better talent just b/c a senior is ahead of the younger better talent. If McMillan truly isn't ready and Grant looks better than yes, but I think the decision has to be made beyond the shadow of a doubt. Lets be honest, and as we all know, Grant has not lived up to what he should have. If it takes you til your senior season to get to your potential, then you were never that good in the first place. I just see a scenario where McMillan wants to get in b/c Grant is struggling, and that line of "your time will come" comes out...thats how you lose good players to transfer or discourage them all together. I just hope Fick makes the right call.

A lot of good points here, and I also believe it to be true. At the end of the day they are all kids, and have to understand that your not given anything, you have to earn it. Very well written article.
