Women’s Hoop: Vying for 3rd Straight Win in Madison’s County

After putting the Nittany Lions to sleep in a 94-64 blowout win at home last night with eight different scarlet and gray scorers, the #18 Ohio State women’s basketball team (18-5, 7-3) will now prepare for a trip to Madison, Wisconsin. While the Badgers (9-15, 2-9) are second to last in the Big Ten standings, the Buckeyes can’t afford to look ahead by discounting the other team in red if they want to make a final climb toward the summit of the conference during the regular season. Moreover, remaining in the top-20 by beating teams they should will be watched by NCAA tournament committee members a little more closely now in February. The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Wisconsin Badgers will tip-off at 1 p.m. this Saturday at the Kohl Center on the Big Ten Network.

OSU Wrestling: Getting Ready to Rumble for #1

A championship-caliber wrestling matchup awaits in Happy Valley this Saturday evening as #1 Penn State hosts #2 Ohio State. While this clash of Big Ten titans warrants an intro from legendary “Jock Jams” announcer Michael Buffer, that, sadly, will likely be left wanting in our imaginations. Regardless, the top-two ranked wrestling programs in the Big Ten and country will battle for bragging rights and the #1 national ranking in what should be an epic wrestling showdown. The Buckeyes are led by world-class heavyweight wrestler Kyle Snyder. The Ohio State Buckeyes and Penn State Nittany Lions will lock arms this Saturday at 8 p.m. in Rec Hall broadcasted on the Big Ten Network.

#SaveTheCrew Beats on Against the Current

Just as the #SaveTheCrew movement beats on against the relentless current of Crew SC owner Anthony Precourt, so does the drum beat for showcasing its own locally-sponsored jersey for the forthcoming 2018 MLS season. “The Community Kit”’s full design reveal will occur in the coming days and weeks, beginning today with a manufacturer detail.

This jersey is available for pre-order on for $75. All you crazy Crew supporters have been flocking to the site which caused it to crash momentarily a few days ago. So if you experience some webpage issues, use the time to send some negative energy towards Precourt and by then, your page will be right as rain.

2 star Blue Jackets players say goodbye, fans react

Mitch Hooper



The fears all season finally came to fruition for the Columbus Blue Jackets as star winger Artemi Panarin and star goalie Sergei Bobrovsky both signed to new teams on July 1, the first day of free agency in the NHL.

Panarin will be suiting up for the New York Rangers now as the highest paid winger in the league, reports ESPN. Bobrovsky took his talents to the Florida Panthers on a seven year contract, reports Additionally, center Matt Duchene signed with the Nashville Predators.

After the best playoff run in franchise history, both Panarin, affectionately known as The Bread Man, and Bobrovsky, Bob for short, took to social media to thank Columbus one last time before heading to their new squads.

Bob was the first of the day to announce his move.

"I decided to move on. I write my own story and today that’s my decision. I want to thank fans from the bottom of my heart for all support and excitement during my 7 years in CBJ. I want to thank city of Columbus. This city has been treating me and my family very well, no matter what."

Shortly after, Panarin announced his decision, too.

"I was very happy to play for Columbus. I hope you won't be too mad at me😉 You live only once."

And as always, fans had opinions. Some chose to focus on the good times we had. And, boy, were those times good.

Others weren't as gentle. It's all apart of the healing process, Columbus. We'll get through this together. That being said, it seems like there's different emotions for Panarin's departure compared to Bob's.

Example for Panarin:

Compared to Bob:

But in reality, this pretty much sums up all of yesterday for Jackets fans.

OP: Columbus is better than Boston, change my mind

Mitch Hooper



I'm no hockey expert, but then again, I'm not ignorant to the sport. I'm aware of what boarding is, I know when an icing call should be made, and I can see a high stick from a mile away. C'mon, give me some credit, I'm a mid-20s-year-old boy who owns an X-Box—I've played NHL a time or two. I say all that to say this: Columbus is so much better than Boston.

Don't misconstrue my vast hockey knowledge with my bold statement. I'm not saying Columbus is better than Boston in the sense of athletes on the ice (although my 2013 franchise mode on NHL says Columbus is the best damn hockey team six years running), I'm saying our city is better. Our fans are better. Our beer is better. Have you ever actually enjoyed a Sam Adams lager? Hell no.

I understand I can't make these claims without backing them up, so I did some unbiased research and my results were incredible. If you aren't sitting down, you might want to now.

And as if that database of information wasn't persuasive enough, here's an entire press conference of unbiased sports experts carefully explaining their case.

It's compelling, I know.

The facts go even deeper. Have you ever seen a Bostonian on the moon? Or orbit the planet? Point one for John Glenn and Columbus. Neil Armstrong isn't from Columbus, but he's a tried and true Ohioan and that counts in our books. Half point to Columbus? We'll take it. All the numbers are adding up and it's clear as day: Columbus is better than Boston.

The Columbus Blue Jackets take on the Boston Bruins on Thursday at 7 p.m. in Boston. The game will be aired on NBCS.

For your consideration (and to soothe your post-celebration hangover/exhaustion) here's a roundup of some of the spiciest memes and reactions to the Jackets big win!
