I didn't take it that way. It seemed from his comments that he's concerned about being the "only" baller on the team -- which is fair. That was basically the position D'angelo Russell was in his one year in Cbus. I don't begrudge him for deciding he didn't want to be DRuss2.0. I think Bazley would be fine "being the man" so long as there were capable players around him. And in his estimation, there won't be.

Yup. Thad really needs to hire one of Coach Mick's assistants to be his strength/conditioning coach. Mick and his staff sure seem to know how to get the most out of kids. While I'm sure the goals of a MBB strength staff may be different from a FB staff, I think those differences would be easily learned. What may be harder to learn is the methodology (dare I say psychology?) used to push the athletes to improve.

I have heard/read that his recruiting gameplan also has contributed to the decline. He kept shooting for McD AAs, sometimes while neglecting good/great kids from Ohio. For example, 48 Ohioans played in the NCAA tourney this year, but (obviously) none played for Ohio State. After a period of years, that seems to have turned off some of the HS coaches, who often are the gateway to the players.

If your fancy beer was so good more people would drink it.  

They do, every year. While the overall beer market has been falling for several years, the craft beer market has been posting double-digit gains. 

I think it tastes like turds and most people agree based on beer sales.

And I think Miller Lite tastes like piss. But beer sales and the beer economy are not strictly determined by taste. Availability, marketing, distribution, etc. all play a roll in why more Budweiser is sold than, e.g., Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Agreed, wholeheartedly -- though so is Coors Light and Bud Light. I'm surprised Miller Lite accounted for so much of the sales. When I was in school (admittedly, a couple decades ago) Bud products seemed to dominate. We spent many an evening downing Natty Lights or, when we wanted to 'splurge', Bud Lights. I could never drink Miller products -- gave me the worst headaches, even after just a couple.

No worries, Fido. And I seriously don't know if the TM would survive a court review. The good thing (for the university, at least) is that it has deep, deep pockets, probably much deeper than any challenger -- so it'll never actually get tested in court. Kinda like how a certain fundraising tailgate was forced to change its name because of a C&D from the university. It's possible the operators of said tailgate could have one a challenge in court -- but it would've bankrupted them several times over in the process.

While I will not choose cursive as the hill to die on, I find it much faster/easier to write in cursive than in print. And while much of what I do is at a keyboard, I still do a fair amount of handwriting (taking notes in a meeting, marking changes on a document, etc.). (TBH, though, my handwriting is not 100% cursive -- I'll do a print 'z', 's' and 'b' rather than the silly cursive versions.)
