You folks at MGoPoop: No, they weren't secretly recruiting for the Buckeyes if you can believe the overall team ratings. The team up north supposedly got more points than the Buckeyes but that's due to them recruiting more players than OSU. The scUM got the quantity and the Buckeyes got the quality.

I suppose what holds back the suits in the playoff committee is which bowls become part of the 8-team playoff system and when would they be played...and how much money can be made off the new system, of course. Do they add the Peach, Citrus, Outback or Gator Bowls to the new format to go along with the Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, Cotton and Orange Bowls? Or do the keep the current bowls and just have the first round games go without bowl names? There are those logistics to figure out. But let's not wait 7 more years for an 8-team bowl playoff format to happen. Get it done effective with the 2021 bowl season!

None from the team up north on the list! Ha, ha! Harbaugh and gang can take a four-star recruit and turn him into a nobody with that 1980s offense he runs.

Buckeye fans, take some time to go to the Detroit News and Free Press web sites to read a lot of whining about their favorite team getting stomped by Florida. The Facebook comments at the end of the stories from the Meeeeeshigan fans up there will make you laugh for hours.

Cleveland is a lousy baseball town now. You won't change my opinion no matter what you try to tell me. Yeah, I know they will never move to Columbus, but the point I'm making is the Indians do not get the support they have earned and deserve from the Cleveland area.

Comment 08 Dec 2018

I'd really like to see the Indians move to Columbus. The Cleveland area fans don't support the Indians the way a first place team deserves. The Tribe didn't even draw 2 million fans for a first place team. San Diego's last place Padres outdrew the Indians! Move the Tribe to Columbus and you will see them draw at least 2.5 million every year with a 40,000 seat stadium. I know I'm dreaming, but it's time baseball's big shots realized that Cleveland is no longer a major league baseball town.

The entire scUM defense is overrated. No team's defense is great or elite when it surrenders 62 points to its rival or any team, period. And what's so great about Don Brown, after all? Yeah, I judge him on this one game because it's The Game and he and his defense choked up in the big game.

It should be interesting who else leaves early. Bush will likely go to the draft, too.

Comment 20 Oct 2018

Bad coaching on both sides of the ball, no discipline with all the penalties, bad play calling {why is almost every running play up the middle?}, bad OL blocking, bad linebacker play, bad pass defense, etc. It all adds up to a clusterf***. I had a feeling we would not win in West Lafayette. That place always is tough to win at for some reason.

Comment 30 Sep 2018

Both teams will get participation trophies for that game, regardless of who wins. And the guest coin tosser at the start of the game will be none other than Stormy Daniels.

The OSU-Team Up North history has nothing to do with the two hockey teams. Detroit was in the NHL a long time ago and that's when they chose red and white for the team colors. CBJ is only 19 years old and the Blue Jackets are named after the Civil War history in the city, which explains their union blue, red and white colors.

As for the hockey game in the Shoe, that would be fantastic not only for the NHL, tOSU, the Blue Jackets but also the city of Columbus. I would think the university would want a college game on the night ahead of the NHL. That team up north vs. the Buckeyes...a perfect game for the Shoe outdoors. The NHL get the ice the following night with the Blue Jackets and Red Wings.

It would also be a great and smart p.r. move for the university to have some high school games played out there, too. Make it one big four or five-day hockey festival for tOSU, the NHL, Blue Jackets and the city. And while I'm still typing and thinking...how about an NHL Oldtimers game between the CBJ alumni and the Red Wings old timers?

Mike Riley left Frost nothing in the cupboard when he left Lincoln. The Cornhuskers are devoid of any talent for the Big Ten level of play. Frost went 0-12 at UFC in his first year there. Could he do the same at Nebraska before turning the Huskers into something that's even mediocre in the Big Ten?

And is there a worse announcer than Mike Tirico? He shilled for the skunkbears all night long. But I guess he should be a shill for Harbaugh and that team up north....he lives in Ann Arbor! I'm no Notre Dame fan [until they play that team up north] but his call of the game was Meeeshigan fan boy all the way.

You have to wonder if the fans up north are now resigned to seeing their team lose games to big name teams.

Harbaugh dialed up a 1980s offense for the game. Patterson couldn't make the offense look good, no matter what he did. Let's hope Harbaugh continues to use that 30 year old playbook all season long. BTW, their so-called great defense that the national sports media -- and even this site -- brags about ad nauseum gave up a lot of big plays and took stupid penalties. Have they and Eleven Warriors forgot that the Buckeyes ran up 31 points on them last year? Harbaugh has a great defense, when they play Illinois, directional MAC Michigan teams, etc.

This is the wrong time to rush to judgement on the Trustees and their report, Smith, Meyer and President Drake. We don't know all of the details in the report, fans. So keep your cool. Go Bucks!

The only thing I am happy about is that the suspension is not because he supposedly lied to the sanctimonious media bums at the Big Ten presser day last month.
