  • SPORTS MOMENT: Any time I'm in the Shoe! - But my most memorable experience was 1989, Cavs v Bulls. I was a season ticket holder, and the 5th game of the playoff series was the most electric atmosphere I've ever experienced. The crowd was nuts from 15 minutes before the tip until "The Shot" ripped through the net. At which point the Coliseum was completely deflated. I don't think the lead was ever more than a few points either way, Classic Game with a defining moment.

Yep, Michigan on the road vs ranked teams in their last 20 games, are 1-19. Losing by an average of 16 points per game. (The lone W, against an anemic Sparty offense last year)

In one respect I don't mind the Friday game, as all CFB eyes will be on this game. And as Kevin said, I'd watch the Buckeyes anytime they (TV) wants to schedule a game. But I don't like that it's going to have consequences for many HS teams & their budgets

OldTown - JoeB would have been a great QB for the Buckeyes - But there is only room for one QB1.  JoeB Graduated and decided to seek playng time rather than wait another year, or for an injury (that didn't come anyway). Obviously there was a real close compitition between JoeB and Dwayne Haskins. Can't say the Buckeyes made a bad choice, and I can't blame JoeB (tOSU Graduate) for moving on to display his talents.  We had Dwayne and now we get Justin for 2 years - which is likely as least as good as if we had JoeB for 2 years and Justin for 1. Except if JoeB was still here, does Justin even come here? and then who is QB1 next year? (Would Baldwin have stayed? So many unanswerable questions)

I will say that being a Tribe Fan has been a lot more fun in the last 25 years than it had been for the 34 years before that. Even with the 2 heartbreaking WS losses in the last inning of the 7th game. 

Baseball does have a youth problem though. Our 20yo is at tOSU in a house with 5 other guys and none of those other 5 watch Baseball. 

Our 16yo is a Nationals Fan, and he is one happy kid this week! While I've been glad they had big leads early so I could go to bed at a reasonable hour. Playing games past midnight on school night isn't going to help their cause long term.

And looking a little farther ahead....

Bama giving a lot to JoeB - that's going to be a Shootout, last one with the ball - as those Defenses aren't what they typically have been. 

Ohio state should be favored in all 9 games left

Everyone is already watching B1G Noon Kickoff games. 

It still amazes me that only 6-7 million tvs were tuned in. How could you not watch the greatest sport.  

Comment 16 Oct 2019

Yeah, LSU still has the 2 best wins, but they get 10 of those points in those 2 games. Ten days til the clash of the titans.

Back when tTUN was relevant.
