Ohio State starts out the Big Ten being the favorite to win the championship. Without a top 10 team or a team even close to the amount of proven players Ohio State has, on paper the Buckeyes are a shoe in. The Buckeyes have the best player in the Big Ten, the best perimeter defender, probably the best wing player, and this doesn’t even include Des\Shaun Thomas, who won Big Ten Player of the Week last week. Ohio State isn’t a proven road team yet, so their schedule consisting of 5 away games against ranked opponents is a concern.
Not only does Ohio State play tough road games but half of their opponents in the Big Ten schedule are currently ranked, as you can see in the college basketball betting lines. That should tell you something about the state of the conference, the depth of quality teams is the best amongst the nation. So, with Ohio State having an extremely tough conference and Wisconsin having a relatively easy schedule, the Big Ten title isn’t necessarily a given. Wisconsin plays 7 ranked teams, 3 of which are on the road, the least amount of ranked games in the Big Ten. Anyway, there are unknowns. What will the rotation be? Who is going to be coming off the bench? My best guess is we’ll see Sibert and Ravenel often with sprinkles of Williams, Thompson, Scott and Ross.no comments
As with anything in life, trends changed and what was popular yesterday may not be popular today. The same applies to the gambling industry. Of course, the old-school games will always be on trend. Things like roulette and blackjack are always going to be around. However, when it comes to slot machines, the variety is so diverse.
It seems a new slot machine comes out every day. Bigger and better, brighter lights, more sound, anything to attract the customer. Slot machines accepting various denominations of money are also more and more prevalent. Perhaps it is in a bid to keep patrons at the machines for a longer period. At the end of the day they still get all your money even if it is fed in smaller denominations. The longer you stay at a machine, the more chance you are going to use the restaurant and bar facilities. Again, a money spinner for any casino.
With the onset of online gambling, brick and mortar casinos have taken a small knock but not as considerable as one might think.
The online gaming and gambling industry has taken off and new sites are popping up regularly. http://uk.vogueplay.com/free-slots-no-download/ makes it so easy for anybody to log on and spend some recreational down time well, gambling. There are no registrations required on such sites and you don’t have to download any features. There are a wide variety of games on offer, something to cater for everyone.
Online games offer people the chance to stay in and still perform their well-loved activity. Many people find the hassle of traffic and perhaps even the weather often stops them from a night out, now they can have a night out while staying in.
The gambling industry is worth billions of dollars, and is very lucrative indeed.
Over the last 22 years, the number of people who work at casinos has increased by on average 65%, that shows how this market has really taken off and continues to do so.
Las Vegas is the capital of gambling, almost everyone who visits, gambles. The average budget per person for gambling purposes in Las Vegas is approximately $580 and on average a person spends about four hours of their day in the casino.
More than 65% of gamblers play the slots and funnily enough, that is true to most casinos, online or brick and mortar.
Gambling generates more revenue than theme parks, recorded music, cruise ships, sports or movies do. Imagine the possibilities.
Yes of course online gambling has taken a small piece of the pie from the brick and mortar casinos but, there is more than enough to go around by the looks of things.
Take your chance today and pay http://uk.vogueplay.com a visit, you may find yourself completely wrapped up in the online gambling world. Experience the thrill and excitement from the comfort of your own home.

The Michigan Wolverines football team and coach Jim Harbaugh have welcomed Michael Jordan and Nike to the program in a big way in recent days.
Thousands of diehard Michigan fans barraged M Den, Michigan's clothing store, at midnight to usher in the new era. The team now boasts the checkmark, with both Nike and Team Jordan Brand now sponsoring the Wolverines.
"I feel like Nike really puts a lot of effort in with the people they contract with and even some of their sponsors," he said. "It's just more exciting and good for recruiting and all of that stuff."
It was a wild event, to say the least. Legends such as Desmond Howard, LaMarr Woodley and Jimmy King attended. So too, of course, did Harbaugh. Josh Newkirk of Scout.com captured his pre-opening speech:
“In my 52 years, a lot of right here in Ann Arbor, Michigan – I have never seen anything like this,” Harbaugh said to roughly a few thousand screaming fans on a stage located in front of the building.
“I want to thank Michael Jordan. I want to thank the M Den. I want to thank everyone here – this is big time!”
Howard captured just one of the many sleek new designs:

The Adidas era is long behind Michigan now. Harbaugh has helped on the field, with the Wolverines posting 10 wins last year and getting a victory in the Citrus Bowl.
Off it, Michigan continues to reinvent itself. The rabid support from fans and legends at midnight speaks volumes to where Harbaugh has the ship headed.
The Wolverines will make the trip in confident style.no comments
By now we've all seen the banter that started last week between Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and Miami Heat guard LeBron James regarding LBJ spending his free time in Seattle while locked out by the NBA. It's not going to happen, but it does make me wonder what he would have looked like eight years ago in Scarlet and Gray.
I'm not here to debate whether James would have come to Ohio State to play football. He wouldn't, and didn't. Obviously. He was the #1 ranked high school basketball player in Ohio from the moment he received a ranking as a sophomore at Akron St. Vincent-St. Mary HS until he dropped 25-9-6 and 4 steals in his 2003 NBA debut against the Sacramento Kings at the age of eighteen. He was always going to play basketball, and did.
Many in Ohio hate the man now after his "Decision" to leave Cleveland but he was still the Golden Child in 2003. The same people who jeer him now would have been cheering out of their minds each fall Saturday had he been in Scarlet and Gray.
First we have to look at the physical tools the eighteen-year-old version of LeBron James had to work with. During his senior year at Akron SVSM his basketball recruiting profile at Rivals had him listed at 6'6" 225 pounds. That's not "prototype" anything in college football, but James was a first-team all-state WR for Akron SVSM his sophomore and junior seasons and sat out his senior season after breaking his left wrist in an AAU basketball game before football started. His junior year he recorded 61 catches for 1,245 yards and 16 touchdowns after posting 41 catches for 820 yards and 7 touchdowns his sophomore year.
We can't turn back back the clock and see LeBron in the Horseshoe either, but what would happen if we could? With this app, perhaps it would someday be a reality...
We’re officially ten days out from Selection Sunday and the panic button is still fully engaged in
Can the Buckeyes right the ship this late in the season and still make a run to the National Title as was expected back in November? Kemba Walker would say yes.
While improbable at this point, watching

If you are looking for the chance of winning a mega payout, then your slot of choice will be $5 Million Touchdown. If you want to win the five million dollar jackpot, then you will need to make the maximum bet and spin five scatter symbols. In this game the symbols are based on more realistic players and cheerleaders as well as the ball, the trophy and football moves. There is also a touchdown bonus feature where you pick a group of players who pass a ball to each other gaining distance and hopefully making a touchdown. The maximum bet is $200.

On The Trail: Buckeye Recruiting
Urban Meyer and The Ohio State Buckeyes collected their 15th commitment for the class of 2013 in three star athlete Taivon Jacobs from District Heights in Maryland, and it couldn’t have been at a more needed position. As I’m sure all Buckeye fans are aware, Coach Meyer along with Offensive Coordinator Paul Herman have brought the Spread Offense to Columbus, and with this new offensive scheme, a demand for a highly athletic and versatile playmaker. Urban Meyer was able to recruit some highly athletic playmakers in his time at Florida, such as Percy Harvin, Jeff Demps, and Chris Rainey, who were utilized in the backfield as well as split out wide on the line of scrimmage. Taivon has been clocked in the 40-yard dash at a speedy 4.4, which Meyer and Herman will be sure to utilize as they try to deliver him the ball in open space to make plays. Jacobs, along with fellow 2013 class commitment Jaylin Marshall, hopefully will provide Coach Meyer with the playmakers that are desperately needed for the Buckeyes next season.
Meyer of course is continuing the trend of recruiting great talent from all across the nation, but with talented four star Cleveland Heights receiver Shelton Gibson still available, will Coach Meyer look to add another speedy wide-out in the class? Meyer already lost out on four star Hilliard Darby athlete Caleb Day to Illinois, but only time will tell if Meyer will continue to recruit athletic playmakers, or address other needs for the 2013 class. However the staff decides to approach this position of need, Buckeye Nation should all take some time out of their day to welcome the newest member to the 2013 class and the Buckeye Family, Taivon Jacobs! Welcome to Buckeye Nation!no comments
