re: NCAA Selection Committee Early Bracket Release - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote]Wonder why they're sending WVA out west and UCLA out east[/quote] Because they're 4 seeds. Imagine #4-seed UCLA playing #1-seed Gonzaga in the Sweet 16 in California. The top 4 seeds in a region generally get preferential treatment for location for the first and second rounds, but only the...

re: MLB to Experiment with New Extra Innings Idea in Minor Leagues - Buckeye Fan 19
Might be a good idea for regular season but I wouldn't like it for playoffs. Kinda like how NHL has 3 on 3 (and shootout) for OT for regular season but normal 5 on 5 OT in the playoffs. That could work. I think I'd prefer a runner on first though rather than a runner already in scoring position....

re: Former Notre Dame quarterback tommy rees hired by ND has QB coach - Buckeye Fan 19
His dad's a coach. He was also a very cerebral player. I think he could be a good coach. That said, I don't like it for two reasons: 1) He's only 24. There will be fifth-year players on the team next season who were on the team when Tommy was. That's really, really young/inexperienced for a fu...

re: Ranking "peak" interest of various sports - Buckeye Fan 19
It would be more fair if you made the soccer and hockey not involve USA. Like, I'm not a Cubs or Yankees fan so obviously I'm gonna watch USA in the World Cup, but if it was Brazil vs. Germany, it'd be a closer call....

re: Which legendary coach will retire first? - Buckeye Fan 19
To actually answer the question, I'll go with Carroll, because the other three all seem like guys who might literally die on the field/court, and PC's personality makes it seem like he's just not as obsessed. ...

re: NHL Season Long Thread - Buckeye Fan 19
We had Seth Jones picked who's very, very good, but Werenski would have also been a reasonable pick and (maybe this is wrong of me) I figured the fact that Jones is black may have been the tiebreaker. :lol:...

re: Why is Women's Basketball so Hyped? - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote] I wouldn't say hyped but yes they need to put more emphasis on women's gymnastics than women's basketball. I would assume the viewership in USA is much higher for women's gymnastics than women's basketball for Olympics. Too lazy to look it up.[/quote] And I would assume men's track and m...

re: Why is Women's Basketball so Hyped? - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote]Olympics gymnastics and soccer being so popular makes me think ESPN is missing an opportunity. [/quote] I just disagree. The Olympics (and World Cup, to some extent) are largely popular not due to sport, but due to the spectacle and/or nationalism. I don't think viewers (whether women or m...

re: NHL Season Long Thread - Buckeye Fan 19
I don't expect it either, just that it's a possibility. Could also depend on who other teams leave unprotected. ETA: I think more and more we'll protect Anderson over Boone. Crazy we could leave a 23-year-old who's previously scored 30 goals in a season unprotected....

re: Why is Women's Basketball so Hyped? - Buckeye Fan 19
As far as the other sports you mentioned (gymnastics, soccer, softball) it makes sense when you compare to the popularity of similar male sports/events. Gymnastics: Covered VERY heavily in the Olympics. But there are lots of events that are only covered heavily in the Olympics. You hear a lot ab...

re: NHL Season Long Thread - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote]Korpasalo was very solid. I wonder if Forsburg gets another chance. [/quote] After what's gone down the past two games (and how both Korpi and he have played for the Jackets in their opportunities before this season), I think Korpi has cemented himself as the backup. This "competition" be...

re: Should Fleck have waited a year? - Buckeye Fan 19
People are acting like Minnesota won two games this past season. They just went 9-4. Actually have a pretty underrated football tradition. (They've won SEVEN national championships. Obviously, none recently, but still.) Made a bowl each of the past five years and won at least eight games three of th...

Roth IRA - Question about contributions - Buckeye Fan 19
I'm employed and going to earn more than $5,500 in 2017 (and less than $130k). I currently have more than $5,500 in savings. I'd like to contribute the max $5,500 for 2017 in the first week of January (using my savings). This would be before I've earned $5,500 for the year (and before I actually rec...
