+ Reports surfaced Wednesday afternoon that the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Cincinnati Bengals are having discussions to bring the Buckeyes to Cincinnati during their 2013 OSU Spring Game. The Horseshoe will be undergoing renovations after the 2012 season concludes, including heavy concrete work. One asks, will this benefit county. Think about that for a moment. Over 60,000 people show up downtown for a college spring game not normally hosted in Cincinnati. People will spend money. They need to eat and want to drink. Perhaps local fans show up and decide to purchase Ohio State gear.

Some will complain about the unfairness for the University of Cincinnati; especially for recruiting. For one thing, recruitment won't be dictated from one Spring Game -- pretty sure all recruits know about The Ohio State University. Secondly if the Bearcats could pack a 60,000-seat stadium during a spring game, then what's holding them back from doing the same thing?

Regardless we don't see the negative in this.

+ News of wide receiver Percy Harvin demanding a trade forced us to instinctually offer a "not coming to Cincinnati" post.

+'s Pete Prisco offers up a most overrated and underrated list of players.

+ Football Outsiders writes that the Cincinnati Bengals were one of the worst defenses against the play-action.

+ James Jones would die a little inside if he were forced to play for Cincinnati.

+ Former Bengals wide receiver Terrell Owens will join Adam Jones at the NFL Rookie Symposium to talk about challenges on and off the field.

+ A Chad Johnson Ochocinco (possibly) Johnson (again) update.
