Shoot, make it a huge All Ohio tournament: all 6 MAC teams, Cleveland State, Wright State, Xavier, UC, Dayton, and Ohio State. Twelve games initially, then best records face off in a Final Four.
I don't want to play Cincinnati in the Big Dance. I'd like a regular season matchup, just to check on who is better, but Big Dance wise, I'd like to be opposite brackets, so we can get a revenge game for 1961-1962.
ESPN is a joke of a company. I'm still trying to figure out an angle where we can sue them for all revenue they make off of scholarship athletes....
I just need a media member to ask him how many up downs he makes a player do if they start playing this:
I'm viewing it as the SEC Championship title fight. Georgia gets to remain SEC Champs if they win, Alabama gets to be SEC Champs if they win.
Winovich is a good player, and might be able to make himself a 2nd rounder with another good year. This year I couldn't see him going in the top 3 rounds of the draft.
Hopefully next year's seniors aren't reading this thread... K'Vaughn might have a legitimate beef if Francis becomes his nickname.
At the same time, if it's a situation anything like Mike Mitchell's, I wouldn't blame Grimes for transferring, and would hope he can make the NFL wherever he goes, same as Kierre Hawkins.
And Clemson and Greenville are both awful to drive to from Cincy. My parents live on the border of NC/SC, an hour from Greenville, and the quickest route to Greenville or Clemson is at least 8 hours, and the last 2 hours are going to be mountain climbing state routes (but there is a direct flight from CVG to Greenville).
How disgusting would that be. Then the Chargers would have Bosa Bookends in their 3-4, rotate where they play (hand down or not), and presumably Melvin Ingram (who's also a beast). Good luck blocking that.
Alaric Jackson is a great football name.
Shoot, if I win the lottery, some of it is getting donated to Ohio State Athletics to save and modernize St. John's. Because it's such a better environment than the Schott.
My opinion is that the NFL overreached with the suspension length (2 games for the other incidents makes sense). In light of the fact that the NFL's investigator recommended no suspension for the alleged Domestic Violence incidents, I don't believe the league is following Due Process (the CBA does state the commissioner must establish a process and follow it for these punishments) in this case. I don't know whether he did get violent with her or not, however, the lack of judgement shown with the other 2 incidents makes it more likely that he is capable of it. In light of that, plus the other two immature incidents, 2 games is perfectly fair, 6 is extreme. Goodell, however, is doing a good job of what the owners pay him for: To be the face of the league, and hated more by the fans than the individual owners.
Why would I watch to allow ESPN to profit from me watching? I do not want them to make any money off of me. If I had my druthers, all Buckeye games would be on Fox from now on to punish ESPN for its biases and slights against Buckeye nation throughout the years.
Most companies do not hold a government granted monopoly (the league's ability to collectively bargin for TV/radio rights is an exemption from Anti-Trust law), and benefit from huge taxpayer largess (see all the pretty stadiums, and the fact the NFL was a non profit until this fiscal year). The problem I have with the NFL's decision here is that they want to be treated like a private company, but want the benefits of being an essentially public utility (and this is a problem I've had with pro sports since I was 12, and Hamilton County voted for the Stadium tax that would benefit the Reds and the Bengals). If you allow yourself to take special privileges from governments, don't expect to be exempt from closer scrutiny than a truly private organization would.
Shoot, wonder what it would take to get him as RB coach once Alford gets a better gig.
Thought the Sweet Caroline was a little mean. But funny!
Personally, I think it delegitimizes the entire college, and especially their football program. Yes, they should be allowed to get over it, but they should have to earn the respect of college football again, and quite frankly, the only people available to punish, are the fans who excused JoePa and company, and still say they are a "clean" program.
Can you imagine if the Chargers keep on being bad, and get the opportunity to draft Nick Bosa? Good lord, that'd be a pair of bookends.
The 1916 Jerseys were awesome, but the helmet sucked. I'd love to be able to purchase a stitched version, but it doesn't officially exist.
I like the big safety, name starts with an H. He plays really well every time I see him. Any time he's beat, it's because he was in support role, not primary on coverage.
MGOBLUE0205, I was at the UC game this year (my brother works in Chelsea, lives in AA, and went to UC). We were with a Michigan fan who was really worried about the O-line play during that game too. The stunts and Mike Blitzes were driving the LG nuts, and Cole (who is by far the best player on that O-line) kept having to come back off his guy to chip on the DT stunt or the Mike Blitz, and Speight was running for his life against UC.
So, they're the 666th worst at academics? Seems like a Faustian bargain to me.
Tresselball is fantastic for bad weather games. And the fact that your guys' left guard couldn't block me rushing the passer doesn't help either. He has been making Cole look awful all year. UC was running stunts and Mike blitzes right into Speight's face during that whole game.
Because they are George III to the schools. Big, far away, and with a strong enforcement arm. In addition, I am not entirely convinced that their investigative arm doesn't just talk to trees to figure out what shenanigans are going on. And, Emmert is a German sounding name, but I'm not sure that his father only spoke German.
