17 Year Old Kids Run Our Lives.

Ok not literally. But the way these high school seniors create amazing ripples into the landscape of college football is undeniable. In my ever-persistent procrastinating, I decided about a week ago to write a blog post explaining how. Naturally, here it is. College football to me, like it is to ma...

Matta and winning 'Big Games'

A rather heated discussion here got me taking a hard look at Ohio State head basketball coach Thad Matta from a statistical standpoint.

Comparing Thad Matta to the Legends

Comparing two coaches within the same sport is notoriously difficult. Analyzing the relative success or failure of a major college football or basketball program involves a number of variables and inherent subjectivity. What is the most important thing on which to base the evaluation? Is it ...

About Thad Matta - Can we Talk Seriously?

I had some time to kill before the Fiesta Bowl so put on ESPN2 hoping to see the Wildcats make a basketball game of it.

A Little Holiday Rhyme

I totally stole this from my buddy's dad.  I'm sure he wrote this half drunk, listening to some of the wonderful commentators on ESPN, but I thought it needed to be shared:   Twas the night before bowl season And all through the house Not a creature was st...

Yeah, the bowl ban does really suck

I thought I'd be ok with the lack of the Buckeyes playing post-season.  I'd mentally prepared for it all season.  Figured, what the heck - there are plenty of other games to watch - I'll be ok.  I'm not.  Every time I watch one of these sucky teams play (i.e.., VT...
