MEMBER SINCE   August 19, 2014

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

The four playoff teams in 2015 were the champions of the ACC, Big 10, SEC, and Big 12.

Michigan State has just knocked off undefeated Iowa and certainly belonged.

Oklahoma was 12-1 with a loss to Texas, but won the conference title.

The final CFP vote had Ohio State at #7 behind Iowa and Stanford as well. It wasn’t close

My partner and I ultimately decided to prohibit football, hockey, lacrosse, and soccer.

We are nudging towards baseball, tennis, golf, swimming, and basketball.

I am disappointed the B1G chose someone without ties to the conference. 

Jim Delany outlasted two Popes and four Presidents in total, including 3 two-term Presidents 

I will forever be convinced the greatest mind trick Jim Delany ever pulled was convincing the Rose Bowl in 2007 to select #13 Illinois over #4 Georgia to play USC.

Ugh. This is the new normal in college football, I guess. Maybe he will still stay? Seems unlikely.

I am saddened, but I get it. He wants to be closer to home and he is more likely to start elsewhere.

Best of luck!

Using that logic, Ohio State is a fraud.

i want to see Ohio State win without NFL level. What type of argument is that? For Clemson, it is exceptional 

Your team only has the talent it has.

From the Washington Post:

”According to Georgia freshman Jordan Goolsby, the first student to make note of the incident via social media, Sasser allegedly yelled “put the n----- in” following an early fourth quarter miscue by sophomore starting quarterback Jake Fromm.

“Before he said it [the alleged racial slur] he kept yelling, ‘put Justin Fields in’ and then when Fromm made a mistake he yelled out “put the n----- in,” Goolsby told the Washington Post.“

The tone and slur eviscerate any and all trust immediately.

Of course he didn’t pack up and leave immediately, he wants to earn college credits and see the first semester out.

Think about how traumatizing that would be for an 18 year old kid.

Tressel doesn’t have the political cache or the academic pedigree to lead a world-leading research University. Nor should he have the skill set based on his career trajectory. 

Comment 23 Dec 2018

Drake could certainly harm the football program and scale it down though not cancel it outright in numerous ways:

1) Insist on same admission standards for student-athletes as the vast majority of the student population 

2) Refuse to spend as much in the arms race for assistants and coaches 

3) Cancel spending for facilities upgrades which are pivotal for recruiting.

Drake is a smart man, obviously, and he knows the costs and benefits of having a powerhouse athletic program. He hasn’t slowed the train yet

This has nothing to do with him being from Florida.

if the Bosas were from Ohio the exact same thing would have happened.

He was hurt and didn’t want to risk injury. 

We often forget the motives of players are not the same as fans.
