Ambivalent re: Mayfield. It will take divine intervention for the Browns to win a Super Bowl, let alone get there, BM notwithstanding.

Was 10 in '64 when the Browns beat the Colts 27-0. My dad recorded the game on reel-to-reel player. Indeed Cleveland fans couldn't even watch the blacked-out game lol. Who knew the misery would start the next day. Thank you LeBron et al for breaking the curse. I digress.

Part of a post from 4/5 yrs ago ...

Who put MI on the map late '60s ~ Bo Schembechl­er, Barberton, OH asst. coach for Woody Hayes at Ohio State. Gary Moeller ~ born Lima, OH

Urban Meyer ~ born Toledo, OH

Bob Stoops ~ born Youngstown­, OH Youngstown Cardinal Mooney HS

Bo Pelini ~ born Youngstown­, OH Youngstown Cardinal Mooney HS

Les Miles ~ born Elyria, OH

Nick Saban ~ WV ~ Kent State grad, Ohio State asst. coach, Toledo coach

Lou Holtz ~ WV ~ grew up East Liverpool, OH ~ Kent State grad, Ohio State asst. coach

Jim Tressel ~ born Mentor, OH, Ohio State asst. etc. etc.

Ara Parseghian ~ born Akron, OH

Seeing a pattern here ~ if you want to win a National Championsh­ip hire someone born in Ohio or has an Ohio connection

Above coaches = 15 NC's and if you add Tressel's YSU NC's and Woody's and Paul Brown and Pete Carroll, Ohio State asst. and Don Shula ~ born Grand River, OH etc. etc.

Yielding back the balance of my time.

Radio ~ Purdue '68 ~ 13-0. Totally shut down Leroy Keyes.

btw, Mike Phipps/Purdue beat ND 3 yrs in a row. Browns drafted Phipps after trading Warfield to Miami for #1 draft pick. I digress ...

If like in 2006 the 42-39 outcome ie final score ends up being the pick 4 winner again then yes 3:30!. :-P

Minutes after Saturday's game was over, the numbers 4-2-3-9 were
drawn for the Pick 4 game.

Lottery spokeswoman Mardele Cohen said 401 $1 bets were made
that picked 4-2-3-9 in order and each bet won $5,000. The odds of
the numbers turning up in that combination were 10,000 to 1.

The lottery paid a total of $2.19 million in winnings. Players
had wagered $347,867.50.

carry on ...

Comment 30 Jan 2019

Read an article @ 25/30 yrs ago saying at that time 20% of Floridians were transplants from Ohio. Re certain counties depends on where old folk from NY/PA/OH/IL etc. want to retire. Spent 3 yrs in Jacksonville/Mayport while serving in the USN. Florida's a nice place to visit every 3/4 yrs.

Growing up wondered why the #1 radio station in Akron was WSLR country/western then discovered over half of Akron were transplants from WV during the great migration of the '20s/'30s when the auto industry was booming in northern Ohio. The old joke ~ what's the capital of WV? Akron, Ohio. The rubber industry moved to NC, etc. @ 20/30 yrs ago.

Comment 16 Jan 2019

Gave up on the Indians @ '69 and could pick up Reds games on WLW. IIRC late 1969 ? Reds beat the Phillies 19-17 on a Sunday. hmm. any team that could give up 17 runs and still win caught my attention. Can't remember who was their announcer only remember Al Michaels 1972/73 ? Then listened to Brennaman a couple yrs before joining the navy. The old left hander was the main attraction back then for me

I digress ...

Comment 16 Jan 2019

Indeed, another scholarship to give to a deserving walk-on perhaps. The u is a perfect destination for tm as they boast 24/7 w/out ever accomplishing anything.

Going from a head coach who's a qb guru to a head coach who's a defense wannabe ... on a good day. No pun intended.

Richt left a sinking ship so tm should fit right in.

Comment 09 Jan 2019

Indeed, the press misses him already ~ oh the irony!

Again, w/his past "history" how can he promise a 5-star recruit he will be a coach anywhere for longer than one yr?

Perfect ending for Urban ie 62-39 and a Rose Bowl win. Leaves the Buckeyes in a much better condition than when he took over. Only one way he returns ~ if the NCAA declares JT has a couple more yrs of eligibility. :-P
