Friend from my MS program had me store his huge block O (from his undergrad) that he couldn't move cross-country with, a year before I ended up committing to a PhD here. It was destiny. I offset horrible Sundays watching the Bills with great Saturdays watching the Buckeyes.

Everyone on here seems to talk highly of Jackson and McCoy. I'm going to have to check them out. 

I actually like Common man's rants more than them talking sports. I can relate to his rants as I generally dislike everything. Carpenter and Rothman feels like the only show on 97.1 where the 'sports opinions' aren't extremely superficial. The other shows just seems redundant to me when I've already gotten news online. I don't respect the speaker enough to care about their opinion I guess.

Damn. It's right down the road from me so I've always just meandered down whenever (apparently later, after the rush) and never had problems.

They don't open until noon. Found that out the hard way this week at 1130 when I had to be back for a meeting at 12. Nothing worse than a RayRay tease.

I think everyone has been light on details because a member of their staff passed from cancer today.

Braxton was captain in 2014 though, so you still had a QB captain even though he was hurt. Last year if JT got hurt early on you wouldn't just pass the title on to Haskins, so it makes sense that JT and Dolo weren't in 2014. 

2012 you're right though, I wonder how many other years lacked a QB captain.

I like your list since it's skewed towards my era a bit more than others on here. I'd argue that Tony Gwynn is the best pure hitter of the last 30ish years ahead of Ichiro. I'd also argue that Griffey had the best pure swing of that time period. A Griffey swing is a thing of beauty.

I'll say that when I first found this site 2-ish years ago, I had no clue you were a student/intern (whatever you want to call it). You had me sold that you were a full time 11W staff. 

I enjoyed talking to you outside the shoe post-game a couple time. Best of luck in your future endeavors! With DJ Byrnes listed as a reference I think you're set up for success in whatever you try to do.
