The Roommate and I buy season tickets but we sell the smaller game tickets online (and for more than face value)

I think OSU's tailgating scene is very bad. No centralized area; Bars are uncomfortably packed.

People who complain about people complaining about standing are the worst. Stand during big plays, make noise and cheer, but if you stand the entire game you're an asshole.

OH-IO in the stadium is cool. Saying it 100 times before and after the game is not.

People who think OSU football and basketball should be undefeated every year are delusional.

Yea I'm not a cap guy by any means, but this article does a decent job explaining it:


Basically Curry isn't a problem. But a lot depends on Durant. He would have to take a pretty big cut to keep the team in tact. If he doesn't, they will have to lose 1-2 core players.

I've never understood the Lebron to LA talk. He is enter the last 5-8 years of his career (probably although he is a freak). Why go to a tougher conference where you'll have to actually play hard for 82 games? And with a team that isn't as good as the Cavs? You can keep coasting in the East and then turn it on during the playoffs and make finals for the next 3+ years.

Kyrie, Love and Lebron are good enough to get to the finals. If you can find the right piece (or if Kyle Korver can hit a shot) you'll have a chance to win against GSW--who will have some cap issues in the next couple of years. Lebron's legacy would be very impressive if he reaches 10 straight finals. That only happens if he stays in the East.

My initial thought is Chris Holtmann from Butler. Very successful guy at a midwest program. Gregg Marshall is another possibility and it would be a good time for him to leave.

I think its pretty certain that it won't be an assistant anywhere.

Who wins your "Oh yea I forgot that guy was on the team still" award?

Bugsyk listed some good recommendations. I'd add Condado for tacos (either location is good). Pint House actually has some pretty good food and a lot of beers. You also can't go wrong with Marcellas (Italian). There is a newish sports bar type place call Ram Brewery. Pretty decent food.

Not sure what your day entails but I would recommend eating in the Short North area. You and the lady friend can hit up a couple bars for a drink or two and visit some local shops.

You could take a look at some online credit unions. I use DCU. They offer some pretty low rates and joining is pretty easy (mine was a 10 dollar donation to a non-profit). I think their rates generally are between 1.99 and 2.49. Some of the initial steps were kind of odd (no direct wire transfer to the dealership for instance) but I haven't had any problems with them.

Its easy for all of us to think "Why the hell wouldn't you choose Ohio State" since most of us dreamed of playing as a Buckeye while growing up. But that isn't true for most of the kids Ohio State recruits. If you're an 18 year old kid going to a place like Florida State or LSU or USC is a pretty attractive option. All of the top tier programs have pluses and minuses (location, academics, facilities, coaches, girls, weather, food) at a certain point these guys just have to talk themselves into a school.

I was thinking about the opposite of this situation today. If you had an absolute stud player who wasn't draft eligible yet (Clowney after his freshman year for instance). Could you take him off scholarship his (presumably) last year with the program considering he is going to be making millions soon and can quickly repay any tuition that he might incur?

He pretty easily could have not been with any OSU players at the time of the arrest. Completely speculating but he could have went to a party with OSU players (not uncommon on a visit) and smoke with someone at the party (who isn't an OSU player). Cops show up at the party because the music is too loud and see a couple of guys out front passing a blunt. Not a rare occurrence by any means.

I still feel like Saine was wrong place wrong time. If he was in Urban's offense I think he would have been much better as an H-Back.

Comment 23 Jan 2017

I was always on the Rod Smith band wagon. Thought he was the second coming of Eddie. He seemed to have all the physical tools but it just never clicked.

Comment 11 Jan 2017

Terrible idea in my opinion.

Ohio State recruits, generally, 25 of the best high school prospects each year. And, on average maybe 10-15 actually are drafted. And that is Ohio State who is a top producer. Most power 5 schools probably are closer to 5 a year. But for the 10-20 players who don't get drafted (or free agents) at least they have an education to fall back on. Kids that go to this league will probably make $25,000 max a year (which is what the NBA D-league max is) and very few will actually make it to the NFL. What do they have to fall back on? No education. No alumni base. No job training.

EDIT: I missed that the salary is 50k. Still the point remains and I find it unlikely most high school players will earn that.
