Greg Oden has posted a new video to his Yardbarker blog featuring his current living arrangements -- his mom's small apartment in Indy. No marble staircases, hot tubs with a flatscreen per jet or a tricked-out Escalade. Just a cramped pad punctuated by a middle school photo of Oden sporting a 'fro.

You knew it was coming. The nation is crushing on the guy. The Big Lead says it best:

It’s better than any episode of MTV cribs we’ve ever seen. The nerdy middle school photos are priceless. We’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: Greg Oden is eminently likeable. Perhaps moreso than any other player in the NBA. And he hasn’t played a minute!

I love many things about college sports, but it's a shame that we only got a peak of this during his year in Columbus.
