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: Best quarterback never to have won a championship. - Buckeye Fan 19
How bout, to make this a little more interesting, best active QB to never win one. Rivers? Or second-best all-time QB to not win one.......

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: Do people from South Carolina root for the Falcons or Panthers? - Buckeye Fan 19
I would assume the Panthers playing in Charlotte (as opposed to, for example, Raleigh) makes it more likely SC people would cheer for them....

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...

re: So who is the "worst Heisman winner" of recent years? - Buckeye Fan 19
I feel like this could be answered three different ways. 1) Worst player. 2) Worst season for a Heisman winner (based on stats, wins, etc.) 3) Least deserving (which depends largely on other Heisman candidates/finalists). For example, you could maybe make the argument it's Jackson based on 1 but not...

re: NCAAB Thread | 12/6 - Buckeye Fan 19
I've heard a rumor but unsubstantiated. I also don't know if it would have gotten him fired (if it's true) or (again if it's true) if the admin "knew" about it....

Will be curious to see how ND looks Saturday against Nova. ND hasn't played any teams yet that are NCAA Tourney locks, and now they've got the No. 1 team in the nation up next....

re: NCAAB Thread | 12/6 - Buckeye Fan 19
I don't think he was ever close to getting fired. But you have to keep in mind though that until the past two years, he only made one Sweet 16 at ND in ~15 years and three seasons ago the team didn't even make the NIT. There were definitely some restless fans. I was at the ND-Butler second round ...
