First, I don't judge Judson or blame him. The encounter made him uncomfortable, and he's got a right to be comfortable with his decision. Some might have viewed this encounter as a challenge, others might have had a sense of humor about it. For Judson it was a deal breaker, again, his right. Second, as we all know, Urban Meyer used to be a psy-ops agent for the CIA, or he majored in psychology as an undergraduate, something like that. Anyway, we know he likes to test how people react. Maybe he wanted to see which one of the above three Judson was. Finally, I don't think my mother has called me or my brother by our right names in my whole life. I'm him. He's me. Every single time. Maybe I'll decommit from my family.

I posted a question for Birm in last night's HU that he didn't respond to, but I thought it might be interesting to post it in the prediction thread: Given Birm's warning to expect a slow summer for recruiting, what is the over/under on summer commitments for the '17 class? I set mine at 1.5, with Amir Riep being the most likely.

Bonus Question: Which class has more summer recruits, '17 or '18?

As much as I love The Beatles and all the many greats that followed them, if we're doing Mt. Rushmore, you have to go back to the beginning, and the job becomes a little easier once we do. I suppose the "Mt. Rushmore" aspect of the question presumes four heads, but --in the great spirit of Rock-n-Roll rebellion- screw that! here's five: Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Little Richard, and Buddy Holly. From those five, all else follows.

 I say the writers of GOT should ignore the criticism because it's a freaking show. 

I agree that pop culture is often asked to do too much of the heavy lifting in articulating the social and political views of both its critics and proponents. What obligations artists have to the expectations of their audience is an interesting question, and one that the artists must be free to answer according to their own interests. Your statement that the writers should "ignore the criticism" assumes the only reason they are writing the story the way they are is because of the criticism. Maybe, but maybe not. Do you think they should write it otherwise because of your criticism? After all, it is just a freaking show?

Myles Jack is the high risk/high reward pick, an absolute steal at 32 unless his knee falls apart answering the phone.

NCAA blew its load on the B1G, first with the pearl clutching about Tattoo-gate, and then with a real human tragedy at Penn State. In the first case they were pressured by the media into playing schoolmarm, and in the second they played cop. When an actual scandal now emerges involving transgressions that actually fall within their bailiwick they haven't got the guts to act.

Hype is a wonderful thing, almost magical! Peppers is an extraordinarily gifted athlete. I suspect much of the praise he receives stems from that undeniable fact. However, he has not yet demonstrated himself to be a great football player. That might come next, but last year, against OSU, he was not even a mild impediment, not even a pebble in the shoe.

And how did he play vs OSU? Because he got flipped up in the air on one play means he had a bad game?

Well, there was this play too. If you don't see your boy Peppers at first, it's because he's having a seat on the turf 10 yards behind the play after getting juked off his feet by Barrett.

Credit where it's due. Their d-line was the most dominant unit on the field and was the difference in the game. Their offense, while nearly as putrid as ours during most of the game, moved the ball when they had to. Still, Ohio State lost that game because of our own arrogance and complacency. I thought they had learned to take Sparty seriously in '13, but apparently they didn't, and unless they realize that D'Antonio brings his boys ready to fight, they can and will lose again. Pretty sure Urban Meyer has figured that out now. The question is whether or not he can convince his team.

Tyrion has already shown himself to be quite comfortable with fire.

and ice!

Finally, I wouldn't bet much money on it, but I'm pretty sure Tyrion is the only character who has met both Jon Snow and Daenerys.

Good job Phi! I've been saying for a while that the reason the Buckeyes are losing more talent than anyone else is because they have more talent than anyone else. I'll take our chances at reloading over Sparty's.
