Random Ohio Sports Talk

Recommended Posts

I am boycotting the Bengals. I will never watch another game or spend another dime on them. They suck - are run poorly - and are a sorry franchise - that still makes a profit. Sports should not be about profit - they should be about winning. If you want to make a profit make widgets. CINCINNATIANS AGAINST THE BENGALS!!

So did the Bengals do Cincinnati proud last night? :res:

Any team that beats the Broncos is doing something right.....for Cleveland. :D

 

BTW Al Michals, why didn't you want to talk about your two year stay as Reds play-by-play man? (He totally blew off a photo of him and Nuxall in the booth from back then)

Yeah, the Bengals did. They made the city proud with that effort.

 

As for Al Michaels, he was probably asked by ABC not to dwell on his time spent here. He did mention living and working here a couple of times.

 

Oh, and he also called Camp Washington Chili "Skyline". :(

Random pictures from the Bengal's game versus the Cowboys on 11/7/04. Took one of the cranes and steel erection at the convention center expansion from the stadium's third level platform.

1) The Bengals put away a bad Redskins team for their first road win of the year.

 

2) The Browns have taken their rightful place in last place of the AFC North.

 

3) The Buckeyes blew it big time and are cementing their spot in the Motor City Bowl.

 

4) I don't normally follow high school football very much, but my alma mater the Colerain Cardinals are having a monster season. They play in the Region 4 final Saturday against Moeller at Miami's Yager Stadium. Results/stats:

^ Probably not. They'd have to go 5-2 to even have the slimmest of shots, 6-1 if they really want to have much of a chance.

 

They have remaining road games at Baltimore, New England and Philly and I don't see them winning any of them.

Well, for one it was here and for another thing it was preseason. The Bengals did look good on their first two drives of the preseason game, but other than that what can you really tell about 2nd and 3rd string?

 

Plus that was like 3 months ago.

First tie breaker is head-to-head competition and Michigan defeated Iowa earlier in the year.

Was listening to the game throught the entire ride back to Purdue today.  Gotta love 700 WLW's broadcast range. Did they end up setting record for high scores today?

How about those Browns? LOL....

 

I'll be setting up camp in front of Nick Saban's house this week in my attempt to convince him to come back home.

Yeah.  Maybe I should add them to the "failed minor league teams" thread.

 

Seriously, I watched a Dayton/Lincoln match on a Dayton cable local channel a few years ago and it was just really boring.  And, locally, we all know how the Rockers turned out.

 

Here's a link to the league.  Go Marshals!:

Minor league Arena Football.  Great!

I'll have to make a roadie to Lake Charles or Houma.

But just how did Tupelo pass up on an Elvis reference?

Here's a blurb on the Marshals from the 12/8/04 Cincinnati Business Courier:

 

New Cincinnati arena football team to play in '05

 

U.S. Bank Arena will serve as the new home for the Cincinnati Marshals, a National Indoor Football League team scheduled to begin play in Cincinnati next year.

 

At a press conference today, the team announced it will compete in a 14-game regular season, with seven of the games to be played at home.  It hasn't been determined yet in which conference of the league the team will play. 

 

The Marshals follow two other arena football teams that attempted to play in Cincinnati, the Rockers and the Swarm, the latter of which folded last year.  The team also has a new Web site, www.cincinnatimarshals.com.

HEY!

 

A record 5 MAC teams have made bowl games this year: Miami, Marshall, Toledo, Northern Illinois and Bowling Green.

 

The reason for getting so many is that only 57 teams qualified for post-season bowls and there are 56 bowl slots.

New topic time.

 

If anyone here cares, Ohio State is going against Louisiana State tonight here in Baton Rouge. 

I will be attending the game (because LSU has instituted that ALL students can get in for "free") and representing for OSU (because I have OSU t-shirts and nothing mentioning LSU yet).

 

From what I saw of LSU's basketball team back in December (before I came back to Ohio for the holidays), they give up too many offensive rebounds to their opponents and are sloppy ball handlers.

 

OSU does have a chance tonight.

Well, LSU (sort of) got it's act together.

They seem much crisper with their ball handling, but their defense came and went (same with Ohio State).

 

Thought it was funny watch people leaving when OSU was up by 3 with 16 seconds left in regulation. I turned to the people behind me ask why these other people were leaving, LSU still had a chance.  We've become a nation of front runners, or too many people who don't care about sports go to sporting events.  :roll:

 

Anyways, it was a good game (other than the refs giving 95% of all the calls to OSU), but Ohio State had nothing left in their tank for the 2nd OT.

It's not Ohio sports related but.....

any opinions on the Super Bowl?  (the game, not the ads)

 

As a devout Eagles fan ( :shoot: thanks Art Modell), I was disapointed that the Eagles lost, but I can walk away knowing the better team won, but that the Eagles (at least the offense) could of done more....and win.

 

Such is life when you aren't on the winning side I suppose.  :-(
