Z = the strong side wide receiver (aka flanker), amirite?!
The word mensa (/ˈmɛnsə/; Latin: [ˈmensa]) means "table" in Latin, as is symbolized in the organization's logo, and was chosen to demonstrate the round-table nature of the organization; the coming together of equals.
Is there a Raising Canes on campus? If not, why not?!
+1 for the K&P reference!
He has talent, but has been bitten by the injury bug a few times in recent years. He had an ACL tear before being loaned to Man U, and he battled a "serious" thigh injury while with Chelsea.
Ohio State themed bee-bot for the win!
I have to go with the team that basically single-handedly knocked out my Spurs.
They are playing very good ball right now, and you have to love a team whose leading scorer is named Falcon (Falcao Radamel).
The thread died out and
you did not get many reads
alas, no upvotes.
Nice write-up again! Looking forward to the next installment.
How about eGaming? I know that some of the LoL, DoTA, CS:GoO tournaments can pull in big crowds. Ohio State has an eGaming team that will be playing on the B1G Network, so maybe this could be a source of revenue (and pride)?
Eric - I would also like to thank you for answering my question in the mailbag.
I really did enjoy your piece on the stadium arrests. Iowa was pretty detailed in their response, and some of the items are both funny and cringeworthy.
The article you wrote about the man behind the rivalry was well done. I'd like to see you update it in a year or two after we beat TTUN a couple of more times.
Sorry GG - I was addressing the 2nd part of BrutusB's response.
I feel that many premier HS kids are seeking opportunities at programs like IMG to better train and publicize them for their hopeful college careers.
H-D runs a triple option offense ... not friendly to college teams that are looking for west coast or spread players where the passing game is featured a lot more.
To some extent - yes. See Marcus Williamson and Tyler Gerald.
But IMG doens't take anybody off the street. You have to be a decent recruit to even go there and think about playing football. Many kids opt to go there for their Jr and Sr. years only.
No. We shouldn't take someone just to make a coach happy. It's unfortunate that some of the former powerhouse schools in NE Ohio (St. Ignatius, Glenville, etc.) aren't turning out the high-level players that they were 10-15 years ago.
I agree, but I think Urban and other high-profile coaches have made regionalism a thing of the past. Recruiting is all about national reach now.
Where the OSU - state of Ohio pipeline is most valuable is keeping the values and priorities in place, and serving as an inspiration/motivation to Ohio kids that football is as good here (esp. at OSU) as anywhere else.
It would have been nice to start a Liberty County HS feeder and get DB Richard LeCounte (Raekwon McMillan's teammate).

Chipotle gives me
rectal rockets only when
I get chorizo.
Yay for Chipotle!
Better than old la Bamba,
but not quite head size.
Is there anyone on this site that doesn't think that Mick Marotti isn't worth at least a million dollars?!
Pay the man.
