The Time Traveler: Analysis of Anger

<poof> Greetings, time liners.  I have popped in to your present to assure you of the future.  It doesn't take a Time Traveler to tell you what's coming.  Just trust it.  I once told Ray, a friend of mine, "If you build it, they will come."  But that...

Gee, by the numbers

In one of the several posts and threads about the most recent, and ultimately tenure-ending gaffes committed by legendary Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee, someone asked for a succinct recitation of his many, many accomplishments. While the general consensus is that he is a "transformational ...

Heritage and Tradition Revisited

Forgive me for reposting this from two years ago with some minor update/changes.  If you read the original and don't want to read it again, I understand.  But with the aquisition of Phil Steele, I am now officially in ramp up mode.  And our summer of discontent isn't beca...

Would you let your kids go to scum?

After a long sleepless night, reading every comment, to every post. A thought of my kids going to scum crossed my mind. It crept up on me. Like those repressed memories of busting my parents that one awful night. I feel sick. I feel dirty. I just cried. What a horrible thought. My kids wearing piss ...

Meanwhile, at Penn State...

I was at Penn State last week for a work conference, and I had a chance in the evening to take in the town.  Now, I should preface this by saying I have a lot of friends who are Penn State alumni, and I found the campus to be very charming and the people to be extremely nice.  It was also ...

Gordon Gee is Ohio State's Joe Paterno

Paterno Family Lawsuit

Well, folks, just when you thought that the wounds might actually be starting to heal, along comes another jagged edge to rip off the scab and start the bleeding anew. The Paterno family is going to now sue the NCAA for basically its wholesale acceptance of the conclusions of the Freeh report, ...

Mascot Madness 2013: YOU PICK THE MASCOTS!!!

Here's something I'm trying to do to pass the time: Hypothetical. Mascot. Tournament. Yes, we can pit mascots head-to-head and determine which ones are the best. This is something I'm very intrigued in due to how others view mascots across the CFB landscape considering how strange and ...

So... You've Encountered an Internet Troll

I remember the first time I realized Mark May enjoyed goading Ohio State fans. I was sixteen-years-old, and Ohio State was on the cusp of its first national footballing title since 1968. Nobody knew that yet, however, especially Mark May. I'm too lazy to Google his exact quotes, but I remember h...
