Candidly, Reggie should probably find a place on the list too but he never seemed like a threat. Even though he got the Pacers to the verge of besting the Bulls, no one ever really thought he'd get the best of 23 but he had his moments.

Drago got lucky. Fought an over the hill Creed then gets a shot at Balboa? Are we to believe Clubber Lang still wasn't a contender after losing to Rocky? Drago would have gotten smoke by prime Creed and Lang probably kills him in the ring too.

Read up on Ali then. It's a shame you've boiled him down to that. He was the Greatest for so many reasons. Least of all involved his actions on the ring.

This is a great question. Hard for me to answer and probably one for each sport. But if there is one I hated? Flat out didn't like? It's probably Jon Starks. As a born and bred son of the second city I could say Favre or Yzerman but I begrudgingly respected them. I despised all Jon Starks stood for. By the time my fandom matured, Mike had slayed the Pistons dragon so Isiah gets a pass. It's Starks. Always. Or Oakley. Or Ewing. Screw the Knicks.

The most Bulls thing ever happened. Then we will see them draft some tall slasher with no outside shot who started 3-4 years at a major program. Then we will be told that this was the guy they wanted all along.

Or they trade #7 for Lonzo, which I'd be ok with so long as LA keeps LaVar.

The Bulls suck. If it wasn't for Portland taking Sam Bowie instead of Michael Jordan, they'd be the basketball equivalent of the Cleveland Browns Pre-Dorsey

We already basically have free agency in football, now we are going to allow them to be paid outside of their scholarship. I guess waiving the three-year rule will be next.

We don't have Free Agency because they aren't being paid.

The Three year rule is an NFL rule, not the NCAA and that won't change because of this. It also probably won't change because the NFL is smart enough to know no 18 year old kid can play in the NFL.

The only ones not being paid are the players.

He absolutely was. Meyer is not just a blood and guts, maximum effort guy. He was a very bright football mind. He was also stubborn and stuck to scheme more than the player and that was evident in the frustratingly effective use of JT Barrett for four years. I feel like some games were won in spite of the players. At the end of the day, 82-9 is 82- and damned 9. 

I'm just saying that Day will be different. This will be a different era of OSU football, and in my mind an equally if not more successful one given how the game is so much different today than it was even when Urb first came to OSU.

Comment 10 May 2019

OK, this is the strength of the offense. Players, not plays.”

Oh I like this. Nothing anyone says about Day is an insult to Meyer but we all saw for near a decade that Meyer would be loyal to concepts. I think it echoed his personality and he saw a ton of success as a result. With that said, I think Meyer's teams would win games through sheer force of will and sometimes in spite of average to below average gameplans or game day decisions. This is not critical of a guy who didn't lose 10 games in his tenure and no one could whip a team into a fervor like Meyer and those results speak for themselves. Day just feels different. He seems like a guy that will out think you whereas Meyer was a guy who would just outwork you. The fact that Day seems like the smartest guy in every room he is in AND understands games are played on fields, not paper has me the most excited about this next era of Buckeye football.

I've said it for a while now and I'll continue that trend. OSU is going to wreck people under Day.

Comment 10 May 2019

Yep. This is pretty spot on. This is part of the transitional period. Day is a virtual unknown as a head coach. Great offensive mind but there are more established, well-rounded coaches.

I think that all changes after a season or two but for now, we will just have to ride it out.

We gon' be all right.

Oh that's a sexy schedule....though I worry about that Nebraska game. It has me irked.

Second year in the regime, second year in the S&C program for a team that wants tempo, probably a night game, tough place to play when it's rocking. Every former blue blood that needs to get off the mat does so by winning a big game they need to win. This game is that for Nebraska and Ohio State brings everyone's best shot to begin with. If Nebraska comes into that game on a roll and if Frost is legit (and I think he is) that Nebraska game gives me the heeby jeebies.

Comment 08 May 2019

Jon Starks, Pat Riley, Patrick Ewing, Charles Oakley, Anthony Mason.

LONG LIVE MICHAEL JEFFREY JORDAN!

Comment 07 May 2019

ND did it to USC when Bush and Leinart were in town. It almost worked too. But even a jungle couldn't slow down Reggie Bush. That game won him the Heisman*

*That he still won, screw the NCAA, he was the best player of the decade let alone that season.

That was a win win for Harbaugh on 2015. Play it close and you show you are ready, lose bad and its whatever, first year, just wait until he gets his guys.

2018 was his guys. The excuses were stripped away, ALL of them. That OSU team didn't know what it was doing at times and Michigan was bludgeoning people. They were built in Harbaugh's image and the notion that he was a great coach was about to be proven. Then we saw what we saw against a team that hadn't played like that all year long. The talent gap has never been closer (PS we are still winning) and the result was a blowout of historical proportions.

2015 was a complete, but underachieving team, that result was expected.

2018 was a broken, weird, dumb, fast, athletic team that Michigan should have beaten on paper and while the beatings appeared equal in a vacuum, this game was so impressive because EVERYONE knew it could have been worse. Meyer crushed them and took his foot off the gas. 2015 was just a rout. 2018 was something altogether different.
