One day I changed my icon, and the entire internet almost collapsed in on itself and destroyed the known universe. Good news is that we're all still here and can laugh about it. Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

For the record, Ohio State is now trying to sell authentic football jerseys for $200 a pop.  Are you f'ing kidding me?  $200 for a f'ing t-shirt? #thanksgweneth

Not that I had the time to drive to Columbus for the Spring Game this year, but when I saw the original $20 price tag I laughed.  That pretty much threw any possibility of me making that trip out the window, even if I had my eyes on going.

While were dogging Edison...The Wright Brothers didn't invent the airplane, and were also out there simply to make a buck.  They bullied their rivals and ferociously defended their patent in the courts, where they were tied up in lawsuits for years.  They couldn't care less about the legacy of the airplane, and were pretty much only driven to make money off of it.

I still voted for them over John D. Rockefeller, who was a draft dodger, didn't pay his people dick, and pushed other businesses around like rag dolls.  I mean, if we're going to be debating the character traits of any of these captains of industry, it's going to be a long, long day.  They're all pretty much horrible people.

I went with Paul Newman.  I mean, I love Spielberg as much as any movie fan, but he doesn't even remember being from Ohio.  Paul Newman spent a lot of his time in the midwest with his Indycar team, too, which incidentally was very successful in the 80's and 90's.

I'm a full supporter of student athletes getting paid, so we'll get that out of the way right there.  But, has anyone explained to the student-athletes that once they are deemed employees their scholarship then counts as taxable income?  Any graduate student in the health sciences can tell you all about that.  So, let's say athletes get a stipend of 25,000 on top of their 25,000 scholarship...they will owe taxes on both.  So, they're going to need to be compensated to the point where their stipend is significantly higher than the taxes they'll owe on their scholarship....3,000 won't cut it.

I just want to remind the voters that Paul Brown built the only true dynasty that professional football has ever seen, and there wouldn't be a Chuck Knoll or a Bill Walsh without him.  And the stats on Paul Brown need to be corrected.  He won "4 additional league titles," not 3.  The first 7 out of 8 were won within 10 years of the first.  He also started the Cincinnati Bengals, and coached them to a Super Bowl in 1982 (for comparison, Archie Griffin was on that team, but was rather ineffective as a backup).  He also saw them go one more time as an owner.

If we're going to be comparing statistics, at least give Paul Brown his due against Archie's numbers.  Ohio football is what it is because of Paul Brown, not Archie Griffin.

I watched that Wisconsin game with some Badger friends.  They showed up with a 2/3 case of warm Coors that was sitting in their trunk for who the hell knows how long.  I feigned not being deeply offended that Wisconsin fans showed up at my apartment with warm, crappy beer, but I used that as an excuse to get completely shitfaced and intolerable.  Rare form, my friends....rare form.

Ohio State does not struggle to get Cincinnati recruits.  It's a myth that needs to die, because I'm getting real sick and tired of bored Ohio State fans, who have nothing to do now that football is over, rant incessantly on how much they hate Cincinnati.  Football pulls kids out of Colerain and Moeller all the time...Adolphus Washington was a 5-star from Taft, Devier Posey was a 5-star from LaSalle.  Right now there are players from LaSalle, St. X, Elder, Middletown, and Lebanon on the roster.  Ohio State might lose out on a big GCL recruit now and again because, shocker, those kids end up at Boston College or Notre Dame....because big time state college football doesn't necessarily mean shit to those types of athletes.  But, it's not like you see those guys going on to light up anyone's Heisman trophy lists.  So what does it f'ing matter?

Get off Cincinnati's balls.

In that case, if my main cultural cornerstones were abandonment and urban sprawl, I guess brown would be my favorite color.

He will fit right in with the rest of the rambling and incoherent SEC.  Let's face it, Brent's on the very last legs of his career.  If the SEC broadcast arena becomes a place for once-great college football commentators (add in Lundquist and Danielson under this heading), that's no skin off of anyone else's back.  Seems to me the SEC is where you go to play bingo and shuffleboard.
