On this point...I wish there were other options that we could use but I feel like others would be too plain, and we can really borrow from Obrien/Early Matta era because they are kinda gaudy.  

I think the mid 80's homes that just say BUCKEYES on them...I thought we also had one that was script buckeyes, but had a buckeye and leaf on them?

I'll hang up and listen.

This will be the year to know if the Illini are for real or if they are just running a gimmicky defensive scheme and trying to get lucky.

I think Nebraska is going to be undervalued to start the year too.  Hoiberg was able to rehab his roster with a lot of new faces like he did at Iowa State, and he got some good results quickly there.

I think 3-4 is a good slot for us.

I saw Hamilton up in Cleveland this past summer.

Overall it was great.  If I had to break down the two acts I would say that the first act was and A+ and the second was a B.

The second act was (for lack of a better phrase...) too sing-song for me.  Almost like a movie where the young teacher is trying to relate to their class.  

The fact that they don't stop for any dialogue and everything was one continuous song was very impressive.

Definitely worth it!

Saw he has Dayton pinned still, but the unsigned part had me wondering more than anything. 

Holtmann talks about adding the right person to this class.  If Dwayne has a change of heart, he'd be a good fit.

The loudest games that I have ever seen at the Schott were the '07 Michigan State White Out game, and the Conley game winner for the B1G Title.

During the Matta era, the bball team got kicked out of the Schott around Thanksgiving time for Sesame Street on Ice which was contracted for a long period of time so they'd either play on the road, at Nationwide (if Ohio State was hosting the tourney), and about 5 times at St Johns.  

I went to the game where we played UT Chattanooga, and it was about as loud as any other place I have ever been to.  It was such a cool environment.

1. The Precint in Cincinnati - Any Jeff Ruby place I go is amazing. Precint is the best of all of his. The best steak that I have ever had. 

(Large gap)

2. Strip in Avon - Awesome enviroment, and overall best menu I have seen in Cleveland. They make a dessert called a Tirrasata cake (combo Tiramisu and Cassata) that I'll just pick up from there. 

3. Marks US Prime in Gainesville, FL - The best NY Strip I have had outside of OH

4. Peter Lugers in Brooklyn, NY - Steak was really good, but that place is more of an unique experience than anything. Get that thick cut bacon. Steak sauce was a different take. I liked it. Same with Diamond Grille in Akron. Both have the old timely feel. 

Honorable Mention Craftsteak in Vegas, Wildfire in Chicago, Malones in Lexington, and Red in Cleveland. 

Also, please recommend a great char steak that I can try!!

Delete your account dude. People come on here with constructive thinks to say. They're not here for your diatribes and useless comments. 

Youre posts throughout the game were a joke. Give it a rest.

Some would argue this has been an issue since last years Hawaii game. Don't think that's all on Beck. Urbans part of the problem may have been trying to hammer a square peg in a round hole for two seasons. 

We threw a quarterback riding a hot streak out there, and then flip flopped mid season so not a lot of continuity there. Also, this has all showed flashes of working but we had a phenomenal running game and less line turnover last year to cover up the issues. 

Its a mix of not developing talent and not adapting to changes in personnel. Time for a call of action from the head man to fix this, and for us not to just start Fickelling

I didn't see him purple faced on the sideline yelling "run the ball" into his headset. 

Bottom line is our team wasn't ready for that game, and that can't all be blamed on Tim Beck.

There is a real fine line between the people hiding on the message boards saying "fire someone", and the hillbillies that email a student athlete. 

Even this sites writers were asking for "upgrades" (cool dudes)

Urban has to share some of this blame too. This is his team.

Guys like Loving and Lyle get called out all the time. 

People only care when it happens to football players though.

I saw some 11w writers referencing this online. What's sad is this happens to other athletes at this school, but they only really care when it happens to their meal ticket.
