re: Americans have really fallen this far in basketball? - Buckeye Backer
In my opinion, its really not that hard of an issue to figure out. In Europe, 15-17 year old kids are already playing NBA type rules. Shot clocks, time of periods and such. Simply put, kids in Europe are taught how to be scorers. In America, we have too much passing the ball around, run the offen...

End of the Curse - Happy Fathers Day Cleveland! - Buckeye Backer
Sorry if this is long, but I have to vent a little... What can I say, last night was one of the greatest moments in my life. Sports are real, these are the moments when sports bring people and family together. I was raised a Cleveland sports fan, some of my best childhood memories are going to ol...

re: What American cities are trending up? - Buckeye Backer
[quote]That's badass. And yes, it is amazing that a Rust Belt city is growing at the rate Columbus is. [/quote] Columbus lucked out by not basing its economy on manufacturing and auto sector. Instead, it invested in technology, medical and logistics/distribution industries. It doesn't hurt that...

re: What American cities are trending up? - Buckeye Backer
[quote]Provably way off. In the last census the US population center was Plato, Mo. Per Mapquest the drive from Columbus to Plato takes 9 hours, 22 minutes. So over half of the US is more than 8 hours west of Columbus. And that doesn't include Florida or the Gulf coast. Columbus might be with a...

re: Las Vegas awarded new NHL expansion franchise - Buckeye Backer
What about Salt Lake City? They could be a natural rival to Colorado. All they have is the Jazz so its not an over saturated pro sports market. Also, this might sound crazy, but what about a team in Anchorage? It has a fast growing population and the metro is at 400k. I know Hockey is huge up th...

re: How do other states handle Public vs Private in HS football? - Buckeye Backer
In the state of Ohio, Catholic schools have been dominating for the better part of 40 years. It reached a point of no return and a vote to split the public/private schools took place. Once that happened the OHSAA put in place a multiplier that will take place in 2017. Basically, the new policy wil...

re: Cavs offseason plans ??? - Buckeye Backer
Trade Kevin Love to Boston for the 3rd & 16th pick in the draft, plus acquire Evan Turner. Boston wants Kevin Love! Make that trade! Don't resign JR Smith, Delly, Richard Jefferson, Timofey Mozgov or James Jones. Let them become FA's. Release Mo Williams, Dahntay Jones and Sasha Kaun. Love 21.1 ...

re: Cavs offseason plans ??? - Buckeye Backer
If indeed the Cavs lose this series, I think there are options for the Cavs. First, 2 years in and its time to admit that Kevin Love doesn't fit. Nothing to be ashamed of for making that trade, but it just didn't work. Cleveland owes Love 22 million next season. Boston has a bunch of high draft p...

re: Dwayne wade to Cleveland? - Buckeye Backer
It actually wouldn't be a bad move for him if he is willing to understand where he is at in his career. If he is willing to come off the bench in Cleveland to manage his minutes and maximize his talent, he could be a great addition. He would essentially replace guys like Jefferson, Jones and Delly...

re: Texas holding up Big 12 expansion - Buckeye Backer
Cincinnati is also a good get. Ohio State is the only P5 school in the state. If they add Cincinnati, now all the kids from Ohio that don't get recruited from Ohio State can stay in state rather than go to the Michigan's, Michigan State or Penn State's of the world. Cincinnati could start to accu...
