Forever Thankful for Tatgate and the Bowl Ban

If there's one thing America isn't good at, it's naming our scandals. What would we do if Richard Nixon hadn't paid Joe Paterno to break into the Watergate Hotel? Where would we be? With the originality of the goofs who dubbed the college football playoff "the College Football P...

I own a construction company here in Columbus and yesterday I was picking up some things at Lowe's on Silver Drive near Columbus Crew Stadium.  As I was checking out, a man briskly walked by the register and towards the exit with a bag in his hand and was stopped by one of the clerks.  ...

The Dilution of Sport

In a week that saw the bombing of the Boston Marathon.. its subsequent manhunt that put Boston under martial law... a dilapidated fertilizer plant blowing up in West, Texas that killed at least 35 people... an earthquake in China that caused 200 deaths and over 8,000 injuries... a bomb in a popular ...

The Spring Game Sucks

There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?   - Robert F. Kennedy When I look at the Spring Game, this RFK quote is what comes the rum-saturated sponge that masquerades as my mind. (I'm a lot like Robert Ken...

Urban Meyer Will Retire Nick Saban

Nick Saban is the typical tinpot dictator who presides over indentured 18-22 year-olds at football programs around America. We saw what happened when he made the moves to the pros, where he didn't enjoy the same competitive advantages he had in the collegiate ranks, and was required to coach fai...

75% of Columbus should not be allowed to drive.

I love Columbus; it has the greatest reservoir of untapped potential of any metropolis in America. After washing ashore on the muddied banks of the Olentangy in 2008 with only a tortoiseshell cat named "Betsy Ross" and bottle of Lady Bligh in my possession, I have never contemplated leavin...

Why You Shouldn't Freak Out About The 2014 Class

I've seen a few partial panic-mode posts the last few days regarding the shape of our 2014 recruiting class, so I thought this blog was worth making. Here are your reasons why you shouldn't freak out about the 2014 class: 1) It's April 16th (as of midnight), that means there are a...

Why I Want Michigan to Get a Top 3 Recruiting Class

"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17 There is some dissension among OSU fans regarding whether being a "true OSU fan" means that we should root for UM to lose in every situation: lose every game environment, lose every recruiting battle, ...

Spring Game Do's

As a resident of the city of Cincinnati I felt it my responsibility to clue some of my fellow 11Ws into Cincinnati Do's especially when it comes to the downtown area. Parking I'd surmise a vast majority will be driving and returning to their respective cities.  As such parking will...

Most Essential Ohio Get?

After reading in Gene's Quick Bits thread that Marshon Lattimore plans to visit Michigan (not a huge surprise), it got me to thinking about the sort of meltdown many fans might have if we miss on Lattimore this year -- not to mention, if Michigan were to get him haha. I feel a bit spoiled in the...

End of Basketball Season - Five Thoughts

1. I would rather have an appendectomy without anesthetic than root for AACC. Thank you Louisville! Why didn't you do that last year, Kansas? 2. What I take away from the tournament as a whole is the role of three point shooting. There are many reasons why teams win or lose but what struck me t...
