Crack open your favorite brew.

Place cast iron pan on the grill to get rippin' hot (technical term).  Sear steaks 2 min per side in the pan.  Remove steaks from the pan and place on the grill to finish according to your preferred doneness.

Don't drain the pan.  Add diced shallots and garlic for 30 seconds.  Then add 8 oz chopped shitake and 8 oz baby portobello mushrooms.  Saute.  At very end, add dry red wine and allow to reduce.  

Let steaks rest for 5-10 mins.  Crack open more favorite brews.  Enjoy.

Some (including me) have wondered in recent years whether Ohio State fans would rather beat Michigan ten years in a row or the SEC ten years in a row.

And I say, why set the bar low.  I want both!

Both points above are valid arguments for their respective side.  The problem I have is Shangheyed's points are well documented throughout sports and general media, while the other points are not (that I know of).  Athletes get tremendous opportunity and benefits above and beyond the general student population, even those with academic full ride scholarships.  And with the cost of higher education skyrocketing, the value of those benefits rise as well.  Again, a point that I feel is lost in the argument.

Now - I do like what the B1G had to say - guaranteed four year scholarships covering the full cost of that education, plus the health insurance would be a great improvement.  I am just afraid that it is too late for this, especially given the latest media deals to come out of 'Bama and UK.

I am curious - a part of the APR is retention.  What effect does the one-and-done in basketball have on APR?  Where did Kentucky hoops place in the SEC?  

Not a knock on KY or the one-and-done recruiting strategy - can save that for a different forum.  Just wondering if there is extra APR pressure on those teams than the ones that consistently get two, three or four year players.

Good post.  And thank you for linking to Spencer's write-up of OSU-UM.  One of my favorite of his, and not just because OSU.

or a bathroom visit that lasted more than 45 seconds

I have experienced this, not at all pleasant until the first post narcotic bathroom trip.   Ahhhh.  Also - potty humor never fails!

The surgeon had recauterized my leaky left tonsil pillar and for good measure decided to cauterize just about everything else while he was in there, like a drunk Ghostbuster wildly zapping everything that looked suspect.

Automatic upvote for Ghostbuster reference.  Even if I can't upvote Ramzy.

Another one out of the park - great read.  Get well soon!

The KG shot stuck out to me as well.  Gotta be the most popular backup quarterback at OSU ever.  Godspeed and good luck to Kenny.  We will miss you although we will always have your BBBBBBBBB gif.

Today was my third CBJ (and NHL) in-person experience.  What an amazing game.  First 10 mins and thought the Blue Jackets were done.  Very sloppy.  Then they sucked it up and played a complete game the rest of the way.  AMAZING!!

Playoff hockey is incredible...

Interesting.  I just went there, and there is a footer that says "powered by ESPN"!

Honestly - not making that up.  F5'd just to make sure it wasn't an add.

Comment 08 Oct 2013

I recall a GameDay visit to Columbus a while back where Nick Lachay and Desmond stood on in the top row of Ohio Stadium and sang the Michigan fight song.  I was pretty pissed that they did this.  I think even Herbie walked off set prior to the disgrace - probably to keep from getting jumped by the fan base after the show.

Had this on my 11w home page as well.  It's a travesty I tell ya.  


Whew, it's gone.  Don't ever do that to me again, internets.

Comment 12 Apr 2013

Very accurate.  Born and raised west side.  Graduated HS in a class of 612 in 1993 (for the other west-siders, Oak Hills High School), of which I was one of about 5 to go on to OSU.  Very Notre Dame, very UC over there.

My question to UFM - On that certain day in January, 2007, that may or may not have happened, did you in any way feel that you had a chance to be head coach of The Ohio State University football team before the end of your career?

Great story.  Mine isn't even close - but I will share anyway.  I once shared a Morrill Tower elevator with Orlando Pace (there wasn't a whole lot of free space in that elevator!).  Also Stan Jackson was in line behind me in the food court of the Ohio Union the first day of classes after the 1997 Rose Bowl game.  Needless to say that I didn't talk to either of them in the situations - Orlando because he was an incredibly intimidating figure inside of an elevator!  Stan because he was more interested in the group of girls that approached him after he got in line.

To see the emotion on Ezekiel's face.  And the pride on his parent's faces.  Got me a touch misty, I have to admit. 

Good on you Mr Elliott (and parents).  And a big Congratulations!

Now - go make the best of your decision!!!

Hahahahahah - Ron Powlus.  The second coming of touchdown Jesus and Heisman combined!  It was fun to see him cower in the closed end of the stadium on that glorious day!
