Please continue these updates. I hope that more fans become fans of the Buckeyes and not just the big 2 sports. I wish we supported the various Buckeye athletic teams the way they do here in Fayetteville.
And it still makes me giggle to think that Arkansas fired Malzahn. Ol' Frank Broyles and Houston Nutt just knew that crazy offense could never work in the SEC.
If you ever get the chance to see Aussie Rules Football, its pretty fun. Saw one of the play-in games for their Superbowl (Grand Final) last month. In order to play that game, you do have to be able to motor in contact traffic. It is not at all uncommon to kick the ball while running in traffic. So yeah, he may have some skills that can make some nice trick plays.
Love this column. College hockey is as unique and environment at football. But it won't be found anywhere around Fayetteville. Neither will any of those other sports. Keep us posted. Would love to travel to Omaha and seem some Buckeye baseball this June.
The fanbase atmosphere today in Fayetteville is one of muted enthusiasm for Bielema. They REALLY don't like people not from the south down here. Recruiting will be interesting to watch. T
Agree completely. The SEC Coordinators and Assistant coaches receive much higher salaries and as a result, have better staffs. SEC schools are producing better HC candidates. The diference shows on the field. The HC may be the CEO but the rest of the staff builds the team.
Just looking at Bowl projections makes me cringe. Nebraska gets A&M? Northwestern gets South Carolina? MAYBE Michigan can beat Vanderbilt. the B1G could very well lose them all. Can the Bowls go to the NCAA and appeal Penn State's bowl ban for next year?
I am hoping that the quality of play in the B1G has hit bottom. Its not humorous anymore. We can't improve as a team playing inferior opponents.

oh man, you don't know many 'bama fans.
First, the woman behind the counter wouldn't care what you think. Your team isn't even in the SEC.
Second, when you went out to your car, anything tOSU related would be missing.
When I have to drive through alabama, I make sure my gas gage is on full when I hit the state line.

Attend a game in Knoxville and Rocky Top may inspire you to homicide. The chain game orange doesn't help.
Badminton is actually a pretty good workout. Tennis for guys with bad knees.
An impressively educational and thought provoking post. I am enlightened more by reading it. Thank you.
BTW, who is winning the Fulmer Cup?
Never took the lit class either. But if you could recite a little Walt Whitman back in the hippie days, girls thought you were sophisticated and sensitive.
I stand corrected then. Forgive me for underestimating the education of a fellow Buckeye. (I didn't see the picture).
Uh, Walt Whitman. Opted out of that American lit class for film studies, did we?
Big poofy air bag helmets and flip flops instead of spikes will solve the problem.
How about big poofy airbags for helmets? You could spear all you want. It's be kind of like hitting one of those people dressed in the sumo-wrestler suits.
An explanation isn't an excuse. Addictions are monsters. But the addict still has to bear some responsibility for the damage they do.
I'd kind of be embarrassed if I gave a non-relative woman $20,000 and there WASN'T sex involved. But then I'd rather be seen a randy old coot than a chump.
"Screwing " still hasn't been confirmed but as a betting man, I'd agree. There are still many more layers of this story to be revealed, and yeah, I would love to hear the fiance's story. I undertand he has already resigned, left town and has another job. Maybe its the college football version of "Indecent Proposal".
She can get more than A couple hundred thousand $? I know of three LSU alums who are prepared to chip in. I imagine all she will have to do is show up in Baton Rouge next fall.
This is the second football coach in 5 years that got into trouble by having a relationship with a younger woman. To date, neither relationship has been confirmed to be of a sexual nature.
FWIW, you have no idea how dull Fayetteville, Arkansas is. We have lakes, rivers, mountains, woods, and all manner of outdoor leisure activities. But if that's not your thing, and you are away from home 18 hours a day, the boredom can be smothering. The entertainment highlight of this weekend is "An Evening with Cake" at the Arkansas Music Pavilion (tent). Not an excuse , but maybe an explanation.
You say that like it is a bad thing. Another way of looking at it is that she simply leveraged possibly her only asset into a major profit given that her window of opportunity was both narrow and unlikely to re-occur. It only remains to be seen how big a profit she is able to swing when she sells her story rights to some screenwriter.
Or as my grandpa used to say, "If was born a girl, there'd be a whore in our family."
Taver and I need to have a talk about the dismal history for Buckeyes living in fayetteville. Rumor is that there will be some dandy bargains of talented players ready to transfer.
They have decent schools and no NASCAR track.
Be careful what you wish for.
Living in SEC country, an "O-H-" from a fellow Buckeye warms the heart.
Hell, in SEC country, ANYone sporting Big 10 colors gets a nod. I've got a tOSU license plate frame and bumper sticker and get honks and nods from even Penn State and Wisconsin cars.
And believe me, "O-H-" is a lot better than:
Wooo Pig Sooie
