| Political Talk|| Iraqi Army? - Buckeye Backer on 9/11/14 at 6:06 am|
During last night's speech, all i kept hearing was this "coalition" that we are trying to build to help us fight ISIS. While i think that is extremely important, i kept wondering to myself, did the Iraqi Army completely disband or something? I served in the Army and fought in Baghdad Iraq for 15 m...

I realize that the conference as a whole has been complete garbage since about 2006, not to mention this past weekend which was downright awful, but this weekend does provide another pivotol week for the B1G, actually this week could be bigger just because this could potentially save face for the le...

#21 BYU has looked impressive in their first two wins of the season, both on the road. They have a physicality to them that is nasty. Looking at their schedule, they could easily run the table. What would their chacnes be at the 4 team playoff? Also, why has the Big 12 not added BYU yet? Seems ...

Hypothetically, lets assume that Brian Hoyer does well this season and has the Browns winning games, at the same time Romo and the Cowboys have a terrible season (both arent out of the question), if you are the Browns do you consider offering Johnny Manziel to Dallas? If you are the Cowboys would y...

This kid was the #1 ranked duel-threat QB. Urban Meyer hand selected this kid. Here are his SR/JR year highlight videos of him in case anybody needs a look. This kid is going to be good. The coaches are saying that at this point in his carreer, he is way ahead of where Braxton was. Now he just n...
| More Sports Board|| NCAA Conference Realignment? - Buckeye Backer on 8/7/14 at 1:23 pm|
With the news today about the P5 voting on autonomy and the hints that they might only play P5 schools, does this force the next round of conference realignment? Some of the teams that arent in the P5 have to be nervous.

Corey Kluber of the Cleveland Indians has been downright nasty. Its a crying arse shame he was snubbed for the All Star Game. They guy he faced tonight (Alfredo Simon), ironically made the ASG for the Reds and was no match. He is 12-6 and on an amazing run. In his last 6 starts Corey Kluber has don...

Rumors are that with the return of Lebron, Cleveland is getting a couple of alternate uniforms. Here are a couple of designs. I think i like the Black and Wine ones the best.
| More Sports Board|| Iowa or Marshall? - Buckeye Backer on 7/30/14 at 11:33 am|
Do either of these two teams have a chance to crash the party and sneak into the 4 team playoff? Iowa is my darkhorse to make it. They return a ton of starters and their schedule sets up perfect for them. I honestly feel like both teams could run their schedule. Obviously Marshall would need a lo...

While im beyond happy to have James back home...I remember how hard it was to watch LBJ walk away. With that being said, I feel bad for Wade, but the more I think about it, why couldn't this be a homecoming for all 3 involved. Lebron to Cleveland. Bosh to Houston. Wade to Chicago? If you are goi...
| More Sports Board|| Michael Brantley of the Cleveland Indians! - Buckeye Backer on 7/9/14 at 7:37 am|
How good is Michael Brantley? In my opinion, he is the most underrated player in MLB. This kid does it all and is continuing to get better. He has been consistent in his carreer, which is all you can ask for. He has speed, power and a great arm. I think he should be starting in the All Star Game,...

Was watching OTL this morning about Canadien basketball and it dawned on me....how does Canada not qualify more for the Olympics in Basketball? They haven't qualified since the 2000 Olympics. Canada is only ranked 25th by FIBA. That's crazy to me. I think Canada is in a golden era of basketball. L...

I know that this may sound like a dumb reason to root for the Miami Heat, but i just simply cant root for the Spurs. My reason...they represent the foreign game IMO. When i watch this series, i feel like im watching a USA vs The World final. I'll take the USA. There is just something about them. ...

Indiana wins the B1G tournament in front of the largest post season crowd in tournament history (19,965) at TD Ameritrade in Omaha. A big day for the B1G in my opinion. Indiana (42-13) secures an automatic bid and the question now becomes does Nebraska (40-19) secure an at-large big into the NCAA f...
