re: Ties in the World Cup? - Buckeye Fan 19
The point of the World Cup isn’t to determine a winner in every match. It’s to determine one champion at the tournament’s conclusion. Ties in the group stage are useful in accomplishing that goal. ETA: Well, the main point is making money, of course. But from an on-field standpoint…...

re: How does a team improve to the extent of ND? - Buckeye Fan 19
This is weird thread timing. ND looked awful today. They seem to play well against good competition and/or competition they can get up for (OSU, UNC, BYU, Cuse, Clemson) and awful against terrible/boring competition (Marshall, Cal, Stanford, UNLV, Navy). And yeah, all teams do to an extent, but i...

re: Updated odds to make CFP via Caesar’s Sportsbook - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote]The realistic path is the beat Ole Miss, LSU drops a game, and they beat UGA in the SEC title game [/quote] LSU would have to lose to both A&M and Arkansas, not just one. Not going to say it’s impossible, but very unlikely. And even if that unlikely event does happen, Bama would still have...

re: Updated odds to make CFP via Caesar’s Sportsbook - Buckeye Fan 19
Money on Alabama is basically a waste. They have two losses and no realistic path to Atlanta. Ole Miss would be a better bet; they could maybe find a way in at 11-1....

re: Marcus Freeman takes shot at OSU academics: "you don't go to class at places like that" - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote] The irony here is Marcus saying this publicly probably helps Ohio State with recruiting.[/quote] Why would Freeman care about OSU’s recruiting (outside of when he’s directly competing for recruits)? Ok, maybe it does help OSU’s recruiting. It also helps ND’s, which is what he actually car...

re: White Sox Tim Anderson cries racism - Buckeye Fan 19
[quote]Lol again you’re giving Josh Donaldson WAYYY to much leeway here. He lowered a knee at a sliding TA last week at third. It was a a hard play between two guys who don’t like each other. Donaldson is The same guy who accused Giolito of Spider Tack and then threatened to fight him in the parking...

re: In Cincinnati- What to Do? - Buckeye Fan 19
I second Rheingeist Brewery and Montgomery Inn (ribs). I would do Skyline once for lunch just to say you did. I don't think it's great (although not terrible) but you should try it; it's a Cincinnati staple. Silver Ladle is also a good lunch spot; has a lot of diner-type foods. Fountain Square...

re: What's more important in a potential wife - Buckeye Fan 19
"Politics" is difficult to contain in a box, because to me, there are certain political items that are aligned with someone's values, and others that aren't. I'm Catholic and would not date/marry someone that doesn't closely align to my beliefs, which includes the same views on things like abortion,...

re: Tom Brady to Fox when Retires - Buckeye Fan 19
Brady could literally be the best broadcaster ever (or worst ever or average), but regardless, I have no idea how he’d provide Fox $37 million annually worth of value in TV ratings increases each year as a commentator....

re: Coaching changes board 2008 Time Machine: Jon Tenuta’s son just got drafted - Buckeye Fan 19
Talked to a former ND defensive player at a party a couple of years ago. Really nice/cool guy. He played for both Weis and Kelly, so experienced a lot of different coaches. Seemed to be mostly meh/cool/whatever on about all of them… except Jon Tenuta. Absolutely hated the man. Talked about how it...

re: Rumors that Biletnikoff winner Jordan Addison is transferring from Pitt to USC - Buckeye Fan 19
The NCAA needs to go back to the old transfer rules. Trying to fix NIL can be done, but it will/would be difficult and time-consuming with the legal considerations that need to be taken into account. But with a snap of a finger, the NCAA can go back to the old transfer rule and at least try to se...

re: NHL Playoffs - favorites, longshots? - Buckeye Fan 19
I legitimately think any of the 8 teams in the East could make the Cup final. Think it'll be a great eastern conference playoffs. Obviously, Toronto has the history/monkey on their backs. I think if they're able to get by Tampa (huge, huge if) that'll be a massive relief of pressure, and I wouldn't ...

re: America’s next great city - Buckeye Fan 19
I’d swap out St. Louis and add in LA and Miami. LA and Miami each might not be particularly enduring cultures depending on what you’re looking for/what your values are, but there’s a distinctive vibe that permeates each of those cities/metros. It’s different than other huge cities like Dallas, Houst...
