CBJ Seek Road Win with a Capital W

Securing the #1 Wild Card spot in in the Eastern Conference, the Columbus Blue Jackets are set to compete against fellow Metro Division foe Washington Capitals. The regular season series resulted in a 1-3 record for the CBJ, yet Columbus and Washington both scored 12 goals each in those four games. Having said that, the first round of the NHL playoffs for the Blue Jackets will be an uphill challenge with the potential of “anything can happen.”

Will something crazy happen? As the unlikable-at-first prep school hockey coach said in D3: The Mighty Ducks, it takes less than a second to score a goal. How many seconds are there in 60 minutes/one game’s time?

The Columbus Blue Jackets travel to our nation’s capital to play the Washington Capitals tomorrow night at the Capital One Arena at 7:30 p.m. on Fox Sports Ohio and the USA Network in Game 1 of the first-round in the Eastern Conference playoffs. And next week’s return games in Columbus will not only generate excitement among CBJ fans, but Arena District businesses are hopeful the city of Columbus will win on-and-off the ice.

OSU Football: Just $5 for Spring’s Kickoff

Fitting for a spring that can’t decide if it’s going to be warm or cold, the 2018 Ohio State Spring Game’s leading story is the 3-way competition for one of the most prized jobs in the entire state: Ohio State’s starting quarterback.

Underclassmen Dwayne Haskins and Tate Martell, along with upperclassman Joe Burrow have been vying for the QB spot following J.T. Barrett’s departure. The Spring Game this weekend provides a golden opportunity for a breakout moment for one (or all) of these three quarterbacks, plus with a variety of players on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. One way or another, the Buckeyes will be a different team come fall.

Plus, another men’s lacrosse “Showdown at the Shoe” (Ohio State vs. That Team Up North) will precede the football game at 11 a.m.

The Ohio State Spring Game is this Saturday in the Horseshoe at 1:45 p.m. on the Big Ten Network. General admission tickets are $5 with access to both the lacrosse and football games.

Chris Holtmann Is a ★★★★★ Recruiter 

The 2017/2018 Ohio State men’s basketball team surpassed all pre-season expectations. The Buckeyes were consistently ranked in the top-tier of the Big Ten conference. And that sustained success is already paying big dividends for head coach Chris Holtmann.

Reportedly, Alonzo Gaffney–a five-star 6’9” junior at Garfield Heights High School in the Cleveland area—has committed to play for the Buckeyes. Like his size, this recruit is huge for the program. Mr. Gaffney is the first glimpse into what the Holtmann era at Ohio State will look like moving forward via recruiting, which is a big, athletic step in the right direction.

The Big Ten: 10 reasons why Jim Harbaugh is an absolute nutcase

1870 Staff

There’s no question Jim Harbaugh is a weirdo. He’s been caught picking his nose on the sidelines, he essentially wears the same outfit every single day no matter the occasion, and his personality is about as bright as a military general on cocaine. In other words, Harbaugh is set in his ways, and his ways are strange as shit.

But there’s more to this man’s madness than booger flicking and khaki pants. He’s a weirdo that wears many hats (but not many different variation of pants). And we have 10 reasons to prove it to you.

1.) Jim Harbaugh, the Spongebob fanatic.

To quote the coach on a radio show in Ann Arbor, “I love his attitude. He attacks each day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind! I’ve kind of modeled my behavior after him. We all should. What a great employee he is. He’s a go-getter. He’s always got a bounce to his step. He’s got pizzazz. He puts his heart and soul into making those krabby patties. I think he’s awesome.” Uhhh, sure. Whatever you say, man.

2.) Jim Harbaugh, the house guest.

“Mom, can coach Harbaugh stay the night tonight?” Those were (probably) the words of Michigan’s current kicker, Quinn Nordin, as well as the defensive end from USC, Connor Murphy. In an effort to get the two recruits to commit to Michigan, Harbaugh took trips to visit the athletes. Perfectly normal. What’s not normal is Harbaugh crashing at the recruits house for the night. Dude, you are the third highest paid coach in college football. You’re either too cheap to buy a hotel, or you’re too odd to realize this was a weird ass move.

3.) Jim Harbaugh, the music man.

If you haven’t had the luxury of watching this music video, put this magazine down and pull up YouTube. Rap duo, Bailey, produced a Michigan hype song to promote the 2016 season titled “Who Has It Better Than Us?” which featured Harbaugh literally screaming those exact words for the chorus. This is just as much weird (Harbaugh’s rap career isn’t looking good) as it is ironic as the Wolverines would go on to lose to Ohio State and in their bowl game against Florida State. We can think of at least two schools that have it better than ya’ll…

4.) Jim Harbaugh, the conspiracy theorist.

He said they were a “nervous bird.” We’re not even gonna attempt to explain this. Here’s what a former Michigan quarterback, Wilton Speight, had to say to Bleacher Report about the hate against chickens: “He thinks some type of sickness injected its way into the human population when people began eating white meats instead of beef and pork. And he believes it, 100 percent.” … Riiiiight.

5.) Jim Harbaugh, the babysitter.

Turns out that fateful night he stayed with Connor Murphy wasn’t the first time. Harbaugh has stayed at the Murphy residence in the past, when he was a head coach at Stanford, to recruit Murphy’s brother, Trent. During the night, Connor and Trent’s mother went into labor forcing the father to take her to the hospital to give birth. As for Harbaugh and, at the time, 12-year-old Connor? Here’s what Connor told the LA Times: “Coach Harbaugh sat on my living room floor with me and we drank milk and played chess.”

6.) Jim Harbaugh, the patriotic music man.

If coaching doesn’t work, it seems like Harbaugh is eyeing a career in music. In 2016, rapper Lil Dicky came to Ann Arbor to preform. For reasons we have absolutely no way of understanding, Lil Dicky brought Harbaugh on stage to… sing the national anthem? And, as on brand as the mother fucker is, he was wearing those damn khakis for the performance. He probably flicked a few boogers backstage, too.

7.) Jim Harbaugh, the president?

Apparently rapper Wale and Jim Harbaugh are cooking something up for a presidential run. In 2016, Wale tweeted at the TTUN coach and endorsed him for a presidential campaign. Harbaugh responded back eager to bring Wale on as his Vice President. Let’s play a game, Buckeye Nation, would you rather have Trump as president, or Harbaugh?

8.) Jim Harbaugh, the khakis man.

We all know how much the man loves his Dockers, but do you really know how deep that love runs? The man worksout in his khakis. We’re sure that never gets too sweaty. The man swims—SWIMS!!—in his khakis. And he’s even been spotted running around the practice field shirtless showing off that pasty-white dad bod, but still in those damned khakis.

9.) Jim Harbaugh, the dietician.

We already know the man hates chickens, but did you know how much he loves cows? Almost as much as he loves khakis, believe it or not. Harbaugh is convinced that milk and steak are a “natural steroid.” Here’s what Harbaugh had to say about his affinity to “natural steroids” on a radio show in Ann Arbor: “I take a vitamin every day. It’s called a steak. … I truly believe the No. 1 natural steroid is sleep, and the No. 2 natural steroid is milk, whole milk. Three would be water. Four would be steak. [Steak] … it goes with everything.”

10.) Jim Harbaugh, the actor.

Why not? He’s a president, a singer, a rapper, a babysitter, and even a Spongebob stan. Of course he’s made a few appearances on television. The first time was on Saved By The Bell where he didn’t even get an excited “woo!” from the fake audience when he came on screen. Screech gets one every time he’s on camera and he’s a main character. The other time was when Harbaugh showed his true side on Detroiters for a skit. He loses his shit during a tailgating style game and ends up drilling the main character in the back of the head with a football. Okay so the Detroiters skit is actually kind of funny.•

Top 5 times Ohio State broke Michigan’s heart in The Game

Curtis Samuel Shows off His Madden Moves (2016)

For all Buckeye fans, this moment is unforgettable. After going down to Michigan in the second quarter, the two teams matched blows all game and even ended up in double overtime. After J.T. Barrett converted a fourth down, Curtis Samuel 15-yards to seal the win. Not only was Samuel’s TD amazing, it also cemented the Bucks’ place in the College Football Playoff while keeping TTUN out. Two birds with one stone.

Game of the Century (2006)

In the final iteration of the Buckeyes led by Troy Smith and Ted Ginn, Jr., the Buckeyes did not disappoint. This game had perhaps the largest implications of any on this list, because everyone in America pretty much knew that the winner would advance to the BCS National Championship game. Also: who could forget both Beanie Wells and Antonio Pittman going 50+ yards for touchdowns in the same game?

Ohio State Can’t Go to a Bowl Game… But They Also Aren’t Going to Lose (2012)

While Ohio State was dealing with a ban from bowl games, they didn’t stop wrecking opponents, and Michigan was no exception. Heading into the game, Michigan was the No. 20 team in the nation and had hopes for a win over their rival as well as moving up in the rankings to get a more prestigious bowl game. The Wolverines got neither.

Tyvis Powell is Clutch as Hell (2013)

This was one of the more competitive games in recent history. After being tied at halftime, the Bucks and Wolverines continued to trade blows until the very last moment. At the end of the game, Devin Gardner threw a touchdown to Devin Funchess to bring Michigan within 1 point and set up for a PAT. However, Michigan gambled for the win by going for two, and Tyvis Powell shut them down. It’s basically the Ohio State football equivalent of LeBron James’ block on Andre Iguodala in the 2016 NBA Finals, except Ohio State actually ended up winning.

Beat Michigan, then Win The Championship (2002)

Going into the game as the #2 team in the nation, Ohio State had amassed 12 wins before facing off against their bitter rival and were working on one of the best seasons in college football history. Seeing as Michigan had played spoiler to the Bucks’ perfect seasons three times in the ’90s, it felt like Michigan could keep Ohio State out of the BCS national championship, but Will Allen had other plans. With time expiring, Allen snagged an interception near the end zone that prevented the Wolverines from scoring a game winning touchdown. After that, Ohio State went on to beat Miami and win the BCS national championship. Talk about a story book ending for the Bucks — and a nightmare for the Wolverines.

Top 5 worst people from Michigan

1. Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope

While these two gentlemen might be geniuses at branding themselves, their music is just awful. I mean really. The worst of the worst. Their movies suck too. If you disagree, then you are probably guilty of petty theft from Walmart.

2. Kid Rock

Kid Rock’s take on rap-rock elevated the entire genre, a factoid that should cement him into the list on its own. But this dude is running for senator on hyper-conservative platforms. If you are thinking about voting for him, we are just going to leave this quote right here: “[rap rock] turned into a lot of bullshit and it turned out to be pretty gay…if someone says you can’t say ‘gay’ like that, you tell them to go fuck themselves.”

3. Jim Harbaugh

This one is obvious. For more reasons why this khaki loving crybaby is such a wiener, check out page 30.

4. Tim Allen

Ok, while he might not be the worst human in the world, his conservative view of the world and lame jokes about women admits him entrance to the list. “Women are like cars: we all want a Ferrari, sometimes want a pickup truck, and end up with a station wagon.” Tim Allen, you are the metaphoric station wagon of Michigan.

5. John Norman Chapman

Ok, so the “Co-Ed Killer” is by far the worst out of all of the people that hails from Michigan. All of his victims were 13-21—each abducted, raped, beaten, murdered, and mutilated. He is one of the most brutal serial killers of all time, right behind Jeffery Dahmer and Ted Bundy.
