He will probably be on the coaching staff sooner than later...and he just LOVES s'mores!

Quite the gamut in this edition sir...lot's too consider.

Regarding the B1G Coach of the Year mention, it is true that OSU's finest are not usually awarded the hardware, and that is bad subjectivity at it's finest. However, I am quite sure Urban, Jim, Earle, Coop, Fickell (he kind of did get fired you know), would all trade the COY/janet Jackson What Have You Done For Me Lately award, for one of those shiny Natty trophies. 

Go Bucks! The Edge of the Off-season indeed...

We are of the same universe my friend, although I have a full size box fan on my night stand...much to the chagrin of Mrs. Pyle. It tends to blow unwanted scents & musk in her general direction....

I rock my Papa Joe's shirt at least once a week...sometimes I even wash it.

Sad times indeed on High Street. Campus Partners is applying the same corporate sheen to High Street that OSU has applied to itself. Still love OSU, and change is inevitable, but man does it suck going back to campus and having so few vestiges of my old stomping grounds left to enjoy. Hopefully someone can find a way to include some flavor in the mix, as the change moves forward.

Late to the party here, but we moved our oldest into her dorm Saturday, and I must say the entire "move-in" machine is impressive. Choosing an early 8:30 arrival window turned out to be aces, as the car-line on Ackerman when we left the campus area around 12:30 was snaking back onto 315N...

Had lunch at the Union, walked her back to the dorm, then we departed, and she has begun her own fantastic OSU experience. I never lived in a dorm. I am from Columbus, and just lived at home for the 1st couple of years, then to a couple different half-condemned houses near campus. But after spending a couple of hours in my daughter's dorm, and just seeing the nervous excitement, and the energy running through that place, I know I would do it different if I had the option. 

So, make sure those post-it-notes have messages that I would approve of, so I don't have to pay you a, rather so Private Pyle doesn't have to.

Good luck to you, my daughter, and all of the other OSU students who begin classes this week.

And of course...GO BUCKS!
