  • SPORTS MOMENT: 2002 National Championship team is a no-brainer...I'll go with Evan Turner's last second, near-half court shot as time expires to beat TSUN in the BIG tourny. Unbelievable, and I loved Thad Matta giving TTUN's coach an earful - rumored to be in regards to him not voting for Turner as player of the year.

I student-athleted for one season at tOSU.  Let me tell you - it's a grind, and I didn't put in nearly as many hours as the football players do.  In order to get to practice in the afternoon, you have to schedule very early classes, and often miss breakfast.  Then after practice you hustle home, and I often missed dinner because I had to be at study tables at a certain time.  I usually slept during study tables because I was exhausted.

I know some of the football players' majors aren't as challenging as engineering, but I have tremendous respect for all student athletes and would have words with anyone who knocked student athletes without trying it themselves.

P.S.  I only did one season because it was such a grind.  I quit to have my weekends open for...um...other activities.

Great point Hove.  Lee kinda seems like RDS to me - he flies to the ball and just seems to make big plays...yet the workload is definitely being shared, since Perry led the team in tackles.

HA!  I didn't notice that.

That would be much too hard on us fans - we wouldn't know who to root for when they are both in the playoffs next year if they were to when they meet up.

Golf is phenomenal.  Beaches are nice.  They have plenty of dolphin tours etc and stuff like that.  Plenty of tennis, hiking, biking, canoing, alligator spotting etc as well.  They have a ridiculous dinner cruise that my wife and I went on for our honeymoon.  All you can eat prime rib (like awesome prime rib) and other delicious food (buffet style).  It was literally a magical cruise - we saw a double rainbow, then as the sun set and the moon came up (full of course), we saw dolphins following our boat in the glistening water.

(sigh...stupid Ohio winter...)

Hilton Head, S.C.  Though I admit I haven't been many places at all, so my sample size is small, I just love HH.

I got to meet Herbie Hancock and he signed my napkin for me.  Looked just like when he signed that one important document thingy.

Since its a vague, alcohol hazed memory of Jenna...you could prolly tweak your story to say you're pretty sure you scored with her and just don't remember all the details.

I can sorta get a light blue, but there's no effing way I can get black out of that.  None.  Maybe I am broken :(

Agreed Lucky!  S'ua Cravens from USC was listed high and I don't recall his stats being that different from Vonn Bell's (and Bell's might have been better).  Fine by me!  We'll keep workin', I am confident in that.

Haha I just remembered another one. We snuck beers into a movie at the Lennox theater on campus. At the time, our big man was Kevin Johnson who blocked every shot that came his way. As we were leaving, he was standing like 10 feet from me. I was drunk, so I said "Block THIS KJ!." To this day I don't know why I said that (I mean we're on the same "team," right?). He either didn't hear me or ignored me.

I;m not sold on Watson at Clemson being number 9.  Not yet at least.
