1Q: Buckeyes Win the Conference Tourney

  • Buckeyes with tough wins over Michigan State and Wisconsin over the weekend earned them their 5th Big Ten conference title (most in Big Ten history)

  • Tough to play three games in three days and the effects showed for both teams.

  • OSU’s defense will determine how far they go. But it sure would help to get some offensive contributions from a few guys along the way (Deshaun Thomas, Aaron Craft, Lenzelle Smith, LaQuinton Ross).


2Q: Time for the Dancing to Begin

  • The field of 68 has been set. It’s time for March Madness!

  • Ohio State, Akron and Cincinnati get their tickets punched

  • Gonzaga, Indiana, Louisville and Kansas are the #1 seeds.

  • Big Ten gets 7 teams in: Indiana, Ohio State, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Illinois

  • #5 VCU vs #12 Akron is a tough one for the Zips

  • #2 Ohio State vs #15 Iona. Not much to give the Buckeyes trouble in the South region.

  • #7 Creighton vs #10 Cincinnati

 

3Q: Browns FA Signings

  • The team bolstered their front seven on defense in the first few days of free agency.

    • LB Paul Kruger (BAL)

    • DT Des Bryant (OAK)

    • LB Quentin Groves (ARIZ)

    • TE Gary Barnidge (CAR)

  • Rumored to be interested in:

    • WAS TE Fred Davis, CHI TE Kellen Davis, ATL CB Brent Grimes.

  • What’s next?

    • Still no starting CB, WR, FB, S

    • where will the QB to compete with Weeden come from? Draft or veteran backup?


4Q: Browns uniform, stadium and PSL news

  • Most of the Browns’ own FAs are still unsigned.

  • Team DID re-sign RB Chris Ogbonnaya.

  • Cribbs expected to sign with Arizona.

  • Ben Watson signed for three years with New Orleans.

  • Kaluka Maiava signed with Oakland.

  • News from Banner at the Owners Meetings:

    • Banner said no new uniforms until 2014, maybe not for a year later. They need 6 months or more for market research.

    • New scoreboard is in the future, but not next year.

    • Team will keep the current playing surface. No need for turf without Chip Kelly, it seems.

    • Team canceling Personal Seat Licenses for season tickets.
