Yeah it would be on the other side of the road if you're going southbound. I made that drive quite a bit over the last 4 years, and there's only like 3 landmarks, so I know them pretty well.

Amazing. I don't even care that that's not the side of the sign you see going that way. I kinda want to make a coffee mug out of this. Or a mousepad, or whatever else they do that kind of stuff to. Bravo.

According to the Cincinnati.com link:

Cincinnati police also determined McClain and Payne had outstanding capiases for failing to either appear in court or pay $130 fines after UC police cited them Feb. 8 with misdemeanor drug (marijuana) possession.

Their court date was probably a few weeks after the citation, but that's still over 6 months without going to court or paying the fine. You'd think someone from UC should have followed up on that.

The revenue directly from going to bowl games is an obvious effect. But all I could find about revenue from the 2011 season is here. It says there was a 5% loss, but I'm not sure what all that includes. 5% is noticeable, but that's still probably in the upper echelon of college football programs.

Those bUCkeye state shirts came out that long ago? My girlfriend goes to UC and bought me one like last year. Does that mean they are still making them or did they grossly overestimate their popularity? Also- I know this wasn't their intention, but I totally interpreted it as something like "UC is a part of the Buckeye State"

So, when does the UC-PSU rivalry over who wants to be Ohio State's rival more start?

That article is terrific. Thanks for sharing.

To me, trash talk is on the field/court/whatever playing surface. It gets inside your opponent's head, rattles them, makes you feel confident, whatever. That's fine. It's usually funny. I don't see how yelling at a reporter and camera is trash talking. An expression of emotion, sure. But I don't think he was emotional about the game. He didn't seem happy, he seemed pissed off. He admitted it in his SI article that he was upset about something, but people are still trying to say stuff like "Oh, he's so smart he uses trash talk to manipulate the opponent, he's just creating a character."

Call it what it is, an emotional outburst about something other than the game. Applaud that, treat it with disdain, whatever.

That might be what the hype was from, but its not what it should have been. Dude is a freak. He had 8 sacks and 12 tfl as a freshman, followed it up with 13 and 23.5. Reportedly runs a 4.5 40. He's for real.

Looks like he deleted some. I remember a couple tweets talking about Chase Farris ribbing him for being a chicken, threatening to go hit on her himself. Good stuff in all. The wonderful world of Twitter.

Also let's add a couple of Braxton interceptions because he isn't a good passer.

I love how the caller bashes Urban for running up the score and beating Morgan State 89-0...

Finebaum looks up where Morgan State is but doesn't correct the caller with the wrong sport and the wrong score in that sport.
