Mr.* Burke at Purdue has even grander plans for that section.

The beer garden will look more like a beer palace in a few years.

While the four-team tournament might occasionally exclude some the state's best teams from competing – the Ohio Bobcats made the Sweet 16 in 2012 – it’s the best way to ensure quality matchups and peak publicity for the event. 

While the MAC is not a power basketball conference, the Ohio Bobcats do have more wins over the past 3 years than Cincinnati, Dayton, and Xavier.

But you're right. In 2013, Ohio only had an average attendance of 6,900, while all others were over 9,000.

I come in with the mindset that the five-star stuff and high school really don’t matter anymore

What an outstanding quote from him. With the success of 3-star guys like AJ Hawk and Bradley Roby (and countless others), I've seen star rankings as merely hype-inducers.

That being said, I can't wait to see who'll bring the juice this season!

From Demetri Martin, a 224-word palindrome, "Dammit I'm Mad":

Dammit I’m mad.
Evil is a deed as I live.
God, am I reviled? I rise, my bed on a sun, I melt.
To be not one man emanating is sad. I piss.
Alas, it is so late. Who stops to help?
Man, it is hot. I’m in it. I tell.
I am not a devil. I level “Mad Dog”.
Ah, say burning is, as a deified gulp,
In my halo of a mired rum tin.
I erase many men. Oh, to be man, a sin.
Is evil in a clam? In a trap?
No. It is open. On it I was stuck.
Rats peed on hope. Elsewhere dips a web.
Be still if I fill its ebb.
Ew, a spider… eh?
We sleep. Oh no!
Deep, stark cuts saw it in one position.
Part animal, can I live? Sin is a name.
Both, one… my names are in it.
Murder? I’m a fool.
A hymn I plug, deified as a sign in ruby ash,
A Goddam level I lived at.
On mail let it in. I’m it.
Oh, sit in ample hot spots. Oh wet!
A loss it is alas (sip). I’d assign it a name.
Name not one bottle minus an ode by me:
“Sir, I deliver. I’m a dog”
Evil is a deed as I live.
Dammit I’m mad.

Unbelievable.

Dear Eleven Warriors staffers,

Please compile an anthology of Slam Thompson's dunks. It'd be a wonderful gif(t) to present on his Senior Day next year.

Sincerely,

Me & All Buckeye Fan Who Agree

I see the need to keep everyone — athletes, fans, and event workers — safe.

I agree, but with significant injuries/altercations resulting from rushing/storming unlikely, why is legislative action necessary?

To remedy the heart of this "problem", we would have to alter how fans celebrate, which certainly isn't as simple as a blockade (which could even compound the issue) or even a fine issued to the school.
