Here Here! I live in the south, and I am loving this Victory Lap!  A buddy of mine (FSU fan) was talking about bovada having FSU with a pretty good chance to win the Natty (9th best or something). I couldn't suppress a huge smile as I asked him if he remembered who bovada had as the favorite to win.

I also say Cavs in 6. I would love more than anything for the Cavs to close out the series at home, so either Game 4 or Game 6 is what Im rooting for. Actually I take that back, the thing I would love more than anything is for Delly to hit the game winning 3 pointer as time expires in Game 6 to give the Cavs the NBA Championship 98-97.

If Delly's in the game as time expires, that means Kyrie is hurt.

If Kyrie's hurt, I don't like our chances.

HS
IGotAWoody's picture

Not necessarily. Kyrie's not going to be fully healed until the offseason, so they will manage his minutes in the Finals. And Delly has shown himself to be capable and worthy. You never know how a game will flow, and if Delly's defending and hitting shots, he could be in at the end of a game because he has the hot hand.

Good news or of Marion. Bad, butgood. We had similar tours of busts going on in wooster last year where 31 were arrested in one night. I'm sure they haven't stopped.

The bust are a joke. They go to jail for the night, then the sheriff realizes his jail is already at capacity from all the users the dealer has been supplying, he sits in a holding cell for a couple hours, and then is handed a summons for court and released on his own recognizance. Only to go back to Chicago or Detroit where the warrant for his arrest in Marion for skipping a court date, does not have the power to extradite him back into the county. So he walks. Plain and simple. 

Something has to change.

I was just in Chicago last week for a friends wedding.  My brother and I went on a bike brewery tour in morning/ afternoon before the wedding.  Stopped at Half Acre, Goose Island, and Revolution.  The guy at Half Acre said the amount of beer Lauginitas could produce is more than all the other craft brews in Chicago put together. 

Also Lagunitas Brown Sugga > Lil Sumptin

Just this guys opinion.

I am not going to predict dick on the Cavs because I remember in 2009 up against the Magic in the Eastern Conference Finals I predicted a Cavs cakewalk and look what happened. Cavs just need to keep playing well. If Irving can rebound from his knee issues that could tip the scales. If Curry goes bonkers (which he probably will) it could go 7.

DJ, maybe you shouldn't tell VT to get dumped this season because you did last year and it was the only one that didn't stick. Maybe break out the Voodoo Witch Doctor or something.

Hard to argue with Austin Ward's logic in choosing Taylor Decker as Most Indispensable. The "Blind Side" left offensive tackle is the linchpin to a right-handed quarterback's success or failure on the field... and the Bucks have three RH QBs.

but I feel like we may be taking Bosa a bit for granted now

Not sure if you're one of us brave souls that still venture over to ESPN.com every once in awhile, but Bosa was the defensive most important player in that same story.  They're doing a series where they identify the most indispensable player on each side of the ball for each team in the conference.  Buckeyes were Decker and Bosa.

True, but Elflein practices at center, and would likely slide over into his spot. Which means the new comer to the line would be a guard. Stud left tackle's a little harder to replace.

HS
NavyBuckeye91's picture

Understood, and I agree that LT is critical, but isn't Jamarco Jones listed as the #2.  But, when you move Elflein to Center, you have to pull someone in behind him at RG.  Is Evan Lisle #2 at RG.

Clearly it's a daisy chain if you lose any of them, and putting in untested backups is a little nerve wracking.  I get more anxious when you see a starter listed as the primary backup to a position, because the chain reaction is longer and potential for an 'error carried forward' is high, than just subbing in one guy.
