Grew up in northeast Ohio. Now I don't live there. Go Bucks. My plan is to eventually retire to Youngstown or Cleveland and buy season tickets to all four teams that I love (Cavs, Browns, Indians, Bucks)


  • SPORTS MOMENT: As a Cleveland fan, not much. That one time the Browns went 10-6 and missed the playoffs? Let's go with that.
  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: Troy Smith (I was at tOSU from 04-08)
  • NFL TEAM: The Super Bowl Bound Cleveland Browns
  • NBA TEAM: Cleveland Cavaliers
  • MLB TEAM: Roll Tribe

In a city of eight million people there are enough alumni bases to make the visit compelling. 

I still won't go to Times Square. Would have been cool if they visited Columbia or Fordham, but never Times Square. Never.

No, but I understand and respect what the faculty was trying to do it.  I probably would have voted to send the Bucks to the Rose Bowl. 

Comment 18 Jul 2017

I care less and less about sports outcomes and more and more about academic research and how the University improves the State of Ohio.

If I had to choose, I would gladly give up our blue blood status for college football if it meant The Ohio State University was the #1 public education for undergraduates.

I would prefer both.

Fair enough, but their football team is good enough, including Rose Bowl victories over Iowa and Wisconsin in recent times.

if you are a NFL product, choose Ohio State.

If you are most likely not a NFL player, the Stanford education is above and beyond 

I think the methodology places too much emphasis on sports and not academics. They are not even partners

You are assuming you cannot find exceptional talent in minority communities or low-Income areas. I do not accept this.

Have the SAT/ACT median or mean fallen at elite schools?

Comment 07 Jul 2017

It is hard to rank ( and largely pointless), but if I was to evaluate based on reputation and experience 

1) Tier one: Northwestern/

2)  Tier Two: Michigan 

3) Tier Three: Wisconsin, Illinois 

4) Tier Four: Penn State, Maryland, Ohio State , Purdue

5) Tier Five: Minnesota , Indiana, Rutgers, Iowa, Sparty

6)Tier  Six: Nebraska

I live out of state and just had my first student go to Ohio State!

It is still a lower tier option for our top students who want a larger public school compared to UCLA, Berkeley, UVA, Wisconsin, and Michigan. 

Great deal for those who live in-state, especially the Honors program

Slow down, buddy. 

The NFL, the most popular sport in America, is still awful for the State of Ohio. 

The last NFL team to win a playoff game from the State of Ohio is the 1994 Cleveland Browns. 

After watching the Browns beat the Patriots in January of 1995, folks eagerly anticipated the release of Windows 95.

Flew back from my grandfather's funeral. Got home when the second field goal was shanked. Got to watched the rest. The world is just.
