InUrbanWeTrust: Not quite right ... you can only have each team listed two times - once as a loss, and once as a win. You have Ohio State listed as winners multiple times.
You essentially need to pick one game per week to fulfill the requirements.

I was going to post this as well - this is classic Ramzy.

I also no longer want to eat any potato salad for the rest of this summer.

C.O.Y.S.!

No love for Tottenham Hotspur here???

I like the Dombele addition during the signing period. If Kane can keep healthy, this should be a squad that will make noise. I don't know if they have enough to unseat MC, but their run in the Champions League is promising for the upcoming season.

Nice first game against Aston Villa, too.

Good to see another former 11W staff member doing well for themselves. No ill will here.

Taylor - this is an interesting piece. The inference is that the BBQ resulted in Ohio State commitments from highly rated recruits who might have easily gone elsewhere if they hadn't attended.

However, is it just as likely that the highly rated recruits that attended the BBQ already wanted to be at Ohio State, and the event simply gave them an opportunity prior to what may have been an eventuality? I think what's needed is testimony from one or more of the recruits to the effect that the BBQ changed their opinion of Ohio State as a school and team, the character and relationship with the other recruits and current players, etc.  This would more definitively indicate that the event swayed them from another choice of school.

Don't get me wrong - the event seemed fun and brought the kids, coaches, and players together to help bond, but I don't know that it was the game-changer (pun intended) in recruiting that the article made it out to be.
