Dating for Next Year: The AFC North


Football season is about more than looking for a champion team to follow. For many out there, it’s about looking for love.

Explaining My Ohio Statehood

Ohio State Buckeyes Fans

Ed’s Note: This was written Monday evening, before the events of the the first College Football Playoff national championship game. Had it been written after that game, it would have been little more than giddy reaction GIFs, exclamation points, and beverages spilled on the keyboard.

Unceremonious Sanctimony: Fallout In the Wake of the End of the DA Era

Finally. At long last. Mercifully. The Derek Anderson era in Cleveland is over. It’s not a move that is surprising by any means, everyone knew it was coming. What’s surprising to me is both how the Browns got here and how the fallout has come down afterward. First things first, though. Lets start with what

The biggest debate in Ohio

Sorry Obama and Hillary, you don’t even have a chance here. The biggest debate in Ohio rages among Browns’ fans about the quarterback position. You won’t hear the ‘candidates’ themselves firing salvos at each other, but their fans certainly will. Check out any of the Cleveland message boards and see for yourself. The board I

File this one under…Are You Serious?

Have I ever mentioned that I don’t really care for Boston fans? I have huh? Ok, just checking. Well it appears that a growing number of Internet savvy Patriot fans are a bit upset about the Super Bowl. Not that they lost. Not that a perfect season was ruined. But that the Giants, and the
