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)

Sadly, I am not.

My son is visiting a Santa for high needs children and then having a reception with Christmas characters. 
 

Leaving my phone in the car to resist the temptation.

It is only football. Family comes first. 

There are things more important in life. I get that we all have different things in life that bring us joy, but helping someone become an Eagle Scout ought to be a joy!

I am going with my one year old to see Santa tomorrow during The Game.

I mean, they are. 
 

They are both strong undergraduate institutions, but Michigan is exceptional and the same caliber as UVA and UCLA. Ohio State would be in the next tier.

As a former teacher, my top students would choose Michigan over ivies and other similarly situated institutions. The same can’t be said in my experience for Ohio State.

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!
