Tyson was working part-time as an usher at the Schott in '05, when I was in my senior year and working there on the Event/Guest Services team scheduling the ushers and ticket takers. We got along great, especially since most ushers were about 25-50 years older than me, and we joked about being punters in HS. It goes without saying that punting was where my talent ended, but Tyson was turning himself into a major part of the scout team as a WR and just happened to be able to punt the heck out of the ball too. Such a terrible and unfortunate accident, but as you mentioned, his family (who I briefly got to meet at a press conference they held for Tyson shortly after this incident) was unbelievable in how they approached it and supported him.

Great writing! Thank you.

I wouldn't say I refused to listen to him, since other options aren't great either, but I agree with the tool part. Don't know him, so he may be a stand up guy, but his on-air persona seems like he'd be first in line to be president of his own fan club.

Darron Lee had more yards and TDs on that single play than Bo Dever accumulated all season. In fact, though Dever is a WR, Lee actually caught more passes this year, seeing as he had 2 INTs to Dever's lone reception.

I think the key phrase in your response is: "to start the year." Joe Bauserman started a year, and as much as I hate ever writing that name or making a completely unfair comparison, was he the better player on that team?

Well done, Larry Johnson. 18 years at PSU = 0 national titles. So far he's 1 for 1 at OSU.

Comment 22 Jan 2015

I don't think anyone questions his athletic ability. It's his reads, decision making, and passing accuracy that may not be on par with the other two players. I agree with you that he could certainly be impactful, regardless of position.

Nice update, Birm. Another thing worth pointing out for that 1/25 game against Indiana that Malik Newman may be attending is that, unless they red-eye the team back from Dallas, this will be the first home game. I'd have to imagine that the crowd will be insane if we're honoring the Sugar Bowl and National Champions at halftime, which certainly couldn't hurt when trying to impress a prospective player.

Sorry, but that comment reminded me of the Team America speech about Ds, As, and Ps. Yep, I used letters, since the entire speech is NSFW, but definitely worth YouTubing at some point for a laugh.
