Not a movie, but still a classic (Seinfeld):

"Not that there's anything wrong with that."

Movie Quote for anytime somebody is struggling at all with anything (Bull Durham):

"Try breathing through your eyelids"

College basketball in the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky area is always awesome this time of year.  There is a realistic possibility that 8 teams within about 2 -2.5 hours could make the tournament.  Ohio State, Dayton, Cincinnati, Xavier, Louisville, Kentucky, Indiana & Butler.  An 9th team will likely come from either Wright State or Northern Kentucky.  When you consider the pure # of alumni & fans for all of these schools in the Cincinnati region, it's makes for a fun few weeks.

No way Alabama is going to sit by idly and let UGA get all the acclaim.  I guarantee the Bama AD is on the phone now, looking to schedule a big-name opponent on a neutral site.  My sources say their first call was to Rutgers, trying to find a date to play in Birmingham.

Skip: What's our record, Larry?
Larry: 8-16.
Skip: 8-16...How in the hell did we ever win eight?
Larry: It's a miracle.
Skip: It's a miracle. This is a simple game: You throw the ball, you hit the ball, you catch the ball. You got it?!

Not sure why you all are spending time talking about September.  If there is one thing I do know from reading the internets, twitters, and watching ESPN Gameday:  Come late November, Michigan will really be hitting their stride after a rougher-than-expected early season.

Comment 02 Dec 2019

I expect Michigan to really be hitting their stride come late November and media members (Desmond, Finebaum, etc) will jump on the "this is the year" bandwagon.  It will then turn into every other late November come kickoff.

Comment 04 Nov 2019

Thanks for all the responses.  I think we are locked in for a good day.  Now I just need a little sunshine & 50-degrees and it's guaranteed to be a great day.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: fans of "Conference Supremacy" only care about conference supremacy when their team isn't the reason for the supremacy.

I've lived in Kentucky for 20 years, which is an odd mix of both SEC & Ohio State fans.  Here's what I can state as near-fact:

1) If I had $1 for every time a Kentucky fan wanted to talk to me - a known Buckeyes fan - about the dominance of SEC football, I'd be a millionaire living on a beach.  Why?  Because they want to get 2nd-hand credit for the success of Alabama.

2) If I had $1 for every time a Kentucky fan wanted to talk to me - a known Buckeyes fan - about anything related to SEC basketball, I'd have $0.  Why?  Because UK is a BLUE BLOOD of College Basketball, and don't care about what measly old Alabama or LSU does.  Their measuring stick is Duke & Kansas.

Comment 28 Oct 2019

I'm 100% Buckeye, and believe Ohio State should be #1 because of the dominance we've shown.  But having said that, the argument that Clemson is struggling is getting a bit tiresome.  Clemson is winning their games by an average of 35 points, and their last 3 games they've outscored opponents 139-31.  They started slow, but they are picking up speed quickly.  

Comment 28 Oct 2019

You know it's been a great year when, after beating the #1 defense in the country 38-7, the biggest mistake the QB has made this year is a slightly cocky comment related to how the weather impacted their offensive output.  Remember folks - last year at this time, people were jumping out of 12th floor windows screaming "Purdue" as they hit the concrete.

Comment 07 Oct 2019

All the changing criteria from the Selection Committee is my frustration, as stated earlier.  But I think we can all agree on one criteria that will NOT be used this year: the famous "Eye Test."  The Buckeyes are #1 as it relates to the Eye Test - so I can assume that the criteria this year will exclude it.  Instead, the new Criteria will be something like "Out of Conference Power 5 wins" - which will help Alabama (vs. Duke), Clemson (vs. Texas A&M + S. Carolina), and Oklahoma (UCLA).  

Comment 24 Sep 2019

Unpopular Opinion, but also a facts: 

  • It is 9/24/2019....the Big Ten Champion will be crowned in 74 days
  • Michigan controls their own destiny in the B1G title chase
  • At this exact moment, ESPN's predictions percentages are just as accurate as anybody else's, including everybody on this thread.  Predictions aren't right or wrong until the scenario has played out completely (i.e. December 7th, 2019) 

Criticize the predictions in 74 days, or wait at least until Michigan is eliminated from the BIG title.
