It’s OSU. It’s Dayton! LIVE!!

03/07 Morning Minute: Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Welcome back, Zydrunas Ilgauskas!  Yesterday’s Cavaliers game was entirely too close for my liking, but there is no denying that Z’s presence in the post was huge on both ends of the floor.  Yes, he had 16 points, nine boards and three blocks, but indirectly enabling Ben Wallace to do his thing (15 rebounds, three steals,

03/15 Morning Minute: It’s NCAA Inundation!

Everywhere you look these days, it’s NCAA hoops.  You cannot help but to catch some of the MAC Tournament action, given that it’s in our back yard.  It’s looking like a Kent State University versus Akron University finals, which is more than sure to draw a solid crowd today.  Neither team had a cakewalk to

OSU Hoops: The Team To Watch?

Yesterday, ESPN’s Pat Forde broke down the major conferences, discussing things like “The Team to Beat,” or which team could be possibly “losing it.”  While it comes as no surprise that the team “losing it” is one Indiana University, following the loss of Kelvin Sampson, the “Team to watch” definitely caught my eye: Team to

 Though the Cavaliers were able to hold off the Pacers during a snowy weekend game, we’re still looking at a team that desperately needs to get healthy for the home stretch.  Thankfully, good news has come across the wire as Sasha Pavlovic is slated to return this week.   Fans may hardly have any recollection of

You know it is a slow day in Cleveland sports when two of the top stories regard “reunions.”  Apparently, Tribe players Ryan Garko and Ben Francisco attended the same high school, while Delonte West is rejoined with a former college teammate in Dwayne Jones.  Apparently, West and Jones were quite the pranksters… One of their

Leave Our Guys Alone

Kelvin Sampson “Tampering” With OSU Recruits? The world of recruiting is a lot like the Wild West from the movies. It’s a world dominated by renegades and outlaws. I mentioned the way OSU football recruit Willie Mobley’s mother received a letter from a Jim Tressel imposter urging Mobley not to go to OSU. Well, evidently,

Yes, Dwight, that is a “40” next to “32” If you were to tell me that LeBron James would put up 29 points, seven rebounds and 10 assists and was not the leading scorer in the game, there’s a good chance I wouldn’t believe you. It was simply one of those games where a player
