re: QB trade for WR - Buckeye Fan 19
Well ended up going with Watson for Hogan and he accepted. Hopefully it works out for both of us (or at least me :lol:)....

QB trade for WR - Buckeye Fan 19
1 QB, 2 WR and 1 flex league (PPR, fwiw). I have Brees and Watson at QB. My WRs are garbage (Cooper, Benjamin, Tyrell Williams). He has Carson Palmer at QB. He's loaded at WR (Hopkins, Michael Thomas, Hogan, Devante Adams, Funchess). I'd like to offer Watson for Hogan. Does this seem like a go...

re: Mike Valenti's Epic Rant: MSU vs. Notre Dame (2006) - Buckeye Fan 19
Here are his thoughts on this past Saturday's MSU loss to ND. Not GOAT level like 06, but still very entertaining. [link=(https://omny.fm/shows/the-valenti-show/mike-valenti-reacts-to-notre-dame-beating-msu)]LINK[/link]...

re: Question about the blocked kick and return by Chicago player against Steelers.... - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote]If th same exact play would’ve happened on not a kick (Big Ben or Bell fumbled in backfield and scooped by Chicago on a normal down play) then it would’ve been a safety because the illegal bat penalty would’ve been in the Steelers own endzone.[/quote] Are you sure about this? I'd assume it...

re: Strategies that football coaches should do but never do - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote]1. When down 15(there are other scenarios) in the 4th quarter, teams virtually always kick the extra point on the 1st TD so they can "guarantee" they're down 1 possession. Then they play the remainder of the 4th quarter like they're actually down 1 possession when there's a greater than 50% c...

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...
