You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

Yes please.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

What do you mean "they all"?
(If I knew how to embed using an ipad I'd include a photo of Robert Downey Jr. in Tropic Thunder in order to illustrate my obvious sarcasm, lest I get down voted into greydom.)

If anyone watched BTN journey, there was a collections of his dunks along with a few other high flyers in the conference: Oladipo, R. Williams, Dawson. Just another dunk to add to his collection.

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

You gotta love catching any team sleeping, but especially one with a top-notch coach like Izzo.  THERE WILL BE BLOOD

He is becoming my second favorite dunker, I don't think anybody will ever top Melvin "The Helicopter" Levitt from UC
Youtube him and thank me later!

I feel like I should be creating a confession bear meme:
I missed this in real time because I switched it over to bowling during the commercial and didn't get it back in time :/
I ran the stairs in my cape cod last night a couple times as punishment.

Do teams have to watch the "Duck and Cover" informational video before playing OSU to prepare for Sam Thompson's atomic dunking abilities?

Amir seems more pumped up than Slammin' Sam

The first man gets the ((((Oyster)))), the second man gets the shell.

I like to pretend the ref isn't calling a foul and IS celebrating the greatness of a Slam Thompson dunk.

I think slam could end up being a VERY good player for the Buckeyes before his time in Cbus is done. D. Lighty type with better athletic upside, possibly more dangerous from 3, absolutely needs to add a slashing/midrange element to his game.

Slam is proving to be an adequate defender, however his slight build puts him at a disadvantage when guarding small forwards in the B1G. Let Mariotti borrow him this offseason. In reality, if he could add 10-15 pounds to bus 6'7(?) frame, while maintaining his freakish athleticism, watch out.

His perimeter J has seen steady improvement throughout the B1G season. Both 3s against MSU were pure as can be. Kid has good form, and gets proper rotation on his shot. Confidence is paramount for shooting jumpshots, Slam seems to be gaining in that department.

My father and I had a discussion after the game yesterday ab how tank, while this team desperately needs his offensive output to win games, is probably hampering the offensive development of Slam and LaQ. Next year, there will be lots of shots available, I think both players will thrive with additional opportunities.

On a phone so my bad for spelling and grammar.
