CGM--still waiting for your first positive post rookie . Your negative nancy spin every "single" time is getting old.  As others have noted the difference between the two team recruit get togethers was apples and oranges.  Ftr, OU has had THREE commits since Caleb signed on in early July, hardly meeting the expectations .  "This site" fully informed who was attending so I guess reading comprehension isn't one of your strengths either. Touche'.

FYI,  Florida #6 is higher rated than OSU in the 2021 US News Public College ratings . Georgia #15 is as well --both universities have made  big jumps in the ratings the last 5 years or so while the Buckeyes have hovered around #15 --- #17 this year . While the recruits other SEC choice Auburn is further down at # 40 but then Texas A&M #26 is rated above SIX other BIG schools. The old argument , that even I used 10-15 years ago , that the BIG was far superior in academics unfortunately doesn't seem to apply currently. Go Bucks!!

Allow me to play devils advocate.  I don't see any advantage to playing this game at nite.  With no crowds(good for us)  and no recruits allowed for either team; the usual TV spectacle no longer exists.  Add in it's on Halloween when many parents may be out with their little ghosts and goblins or younger alumni at parties  ; further detract attention from the gridiron. Plus on a personal note, we usually have 7-8 families gather at the end of the cul-de-sac , put candy in bowls on a huge table while munching on food, doing  jello shots and warming around a few fire pits.  An earlier time frame for this important matchup would seem to be a better answer...well at least for moi. Go BUCKS !!  Beat PSU !!

For my wife,who since has lost 90% of her eyesight, Dr Quinn --she loved that show. Mine would have to be   Whose Line is it Anyway. I have never laughed so hard and often at their improvisational talents.

Wow NH , no History channel?  Man, I have oft looked at reducing my cable expenses but couldn't make it without the HC.  That BTN and NFL Network are musts for moi. Losing the Military History channel is a maybe but now being fully retired and huge history buff; I  gotta fill my time --especially in winter---with something with educational/informative value.

Not a west coast fan for sure.  As many have mentioned Boston Celtics easily match and (technically) surpass the LA Lakers for titles (disclaimer: 5 Laker titles were won while based  in Minneapolis).  Add in the Yankees records of WS  titles and there is no comparable professional (not collegiate)  comparison.  Those TWO east coast teams have connections to Ohio and hence my affection;  Buckeye alum and 1960 national champion John "Hondo" Havlicek for the Celts and the Columbus Clippers were the top NY farm club for nearly 30 years thanx to native Ohioan, OSU grad and Yankee owner  George Steinbrenner .  Go Bucks !!

"Little Joe"  was a  BIG addition and key cog to the Big Red Machine when he came over from Houston.  He solidified the Cinci infield and provided a much needed lefty bat in the lineup.  RIP Joe and thanks for the memories.

 I will have to disagree with you about the Eldon Miller era teams (1976-1986) .  Not only were there some standouts on his teams...Herb Williams, Kelvin Ransey, Clark Kellogg, Troy Taylor and Ronnie Stokes , Dennis Hopson and who can forget Jay Burson ?  Miller's teams made four NCAA's with two Sweet Sixteens, a round of 32 and won the NIT in 1986 . So Miller's teams were not as bad as you remembered. Btw , the Bucks were back in the  NCAA's round of 32 in 1987 under Gary Williams .  Even after Williams short tenure, OSU was in the tournament 1990, 1991 and 1992 with several more Sweet 16's and round of 32. Maybe you were thinking of the mid to late 90's as poor teams ( tho 1999 final four team's wins had to be vacated).

BA76, as a longtime Reds fan and 30 yr player of fantasy baseball,  I will have to disagree with you. While no one is satisfied with the playoff run production; the moves made by mgmt preseason were acclaimed by most sportswriters and resulted in many lofty predictions . Newly signed Moustakas had 35 HR and 85 RBIs in 2019 while Castellanos had 27 HRs and scored 100 runs . Add in 9 yr Japan League vet and 5 time All Star Akiyama batting lead off to on base machine Joey Votto and 49 HR 103 RBI 3rd baseman Suarez ; and you have quite a nice lineup. Unfortunately injuries and a short season derailed 2020  but with their pitching staff and improved run production the Reds will be back in the playoffs in 2021. And I most likely will have one or two on my fantasy teams next year.

As previously mentioned Indianapolis as a cheat location.  A city comparable to the 15th largest in the nation(Cbus) but imagine having pro football and basketball teams in town, the Indy 500(not a race car fan but friends say the infield parties are a bucket list item) and most importantly ; the BIG championship game for our Buckeyes recent annual destination as they look to add to their 8 national titles .  Go Bucks !!

NP... don't know why you got a couple DV's for citing proven historical facts but here's an UV to counter.  I guess some serial DV's  just can't help themselves.  I pity their poor dog .

Man that's impressive IB,  you must know your Ohio history fairly  well.  Statehood came just a few years later. But do you know what was the first capital city?  ;)

And don't forget that the rioting, looting and arson most likely will "magically"  disappear as well ; of course assuming some people get their way ;)

Comment 27 Sep 2020

Amen BB7.   Some just can't see the forest for the trees. Or maybe it's they don't have all the facts and can think for themselves.  Go Bucks !!

Comment 24 Sep 2020

YBB, don't know why ya got a DV for stating the facts and truth.  Gotta be a disgruntled Washington fan,  a Xichigan follower, a PSU alum or a....  Go Bucks !!
