What'll really shake up the college football audience and the Internet is when it is revealed that Bo has been running the FauxPelini twitter account THE WHOLE TIME!!!
Slightly off-topic, but the Wexner Center opened my freshman year on campus (and I feel old now). And until I read this post, I did not know it was named after Harry Wexner, Les's dad -- I thought it was (and I'm sure I've referred to it as) the Les Wexner Center for the Arts. So now I feel old AND stupid.
If DJ didn't feel like the award should go to a pair of brothers because that would make the Greatest Ohioan plural rather than singular, then maybe, I don't know -- and I'm just spitballin' here -- they shouldn't have been in the bracket in the first place!! Or separate them, have an Orville vs. Wilbur play-in game to determine which brother was the important/greater one. I'm not a Dayton guy (Cleveland west side born/raised), but no athlete -- even one as incredible and as politically impactful as Jesse Owens -- is greater than the inventor(s) of manned, powered flight. I'm not salty about it, just explaining why I think some people are objecting.
Yep. Same reason he went after Maryland (for the DC TV market). I'm with you, Jack -- I think the logic is highly questionable.
Are we sure that wasn't Slam Thompson in Greene's jersey??
Wow. Mesmerizing is an apt description. Very cool. (And having the B1G's two most-hated MBB programs (IMHO) on the losing end of those shots doesn't hurt either.)
I haven't kept up on his recruitment, but it's interesting that his 3 choices are all B1G -- two of which struggled mightily this year. Unless he's expecting a rebound by the two Indiana schools (sorry for the pun--not sorry), seems like he's Thad's to lose. Having a productive big man would be nice.
I think you mean Malik McDowell -- unless you're saying that a crazy mama turned young Malcolm into a droog....
In reading through some of the comments, it appears the only Mi¢higan man offended by the comment was the original poster. Most, if not all, of the commenters acknowledge that it was a tongue-in-cheek comment made to a group of would-be donors and cautioned against reading something sinister into it.
But didn't Tecumseh fight AGAINST the U.S.? That's one of the main reasons why I voted against him. Similarly, if Robert E. Lee were born in Ohio, I'd have voted against him too. Not sure how you vote someone the greatest Ohioan if that person actively, lethally opposed the very concept of Ohio as a state.
OMG, I just noticed the woman in the row behind the bench. It's like she just saw a ghost.
The VCU loss looks more and more explicable. They are a good team, and Shaka Smart is a great coach. But yeah, I agree with your general point.
You don't vote for kings!
True, but in pouring beer, there is such a thing as getting too much head.
Meanwhile, in Charlotte...
Hey now -- That freak was in Lincolnton, it was just reported by the Charlotte station. It's akin to something weird happening in Newark or Circleville and being reported by the Columbus media.
Signed, A Buckeye in Charlotte
Is it too late to give him a spot in the Heart Of It All Classic??
Stay classy, Taylor. I guess a tiger can't change his stripes after all....
Stu, I have some bad news for you. Are you sitting down....?
The one word I use is: schizophrenic. Kinda means the same thing, but the connotation is more fitting, because they have to be insane to think they'd beat Dayton playing like that.
Even if we win today, it's over on Saturday. No way does this team beat Syracuse.
Same thought @ the same moment, JB.
Buckeyes aren't playing Stanford football right now.....
I have no doubt Tress will be in the HOF. I think the only question is whether he's in on the first ballot.
Great article, Ramzy. One question: How many of the others you mention made it in on the first ballot? Could this be a circumstance where the voters (acting in concert or not) choose to not elect JT this ballot -- as a (stupid) gesture to the 'integrity' of the game -- but vote him in on the second ballot?
Don't. Just...don't. The only thing worse than random adults tweeting recruits urging them to sign with their favorite school is random adults tweeting recruits with insults and threats when the recruit doesn't choose their favorite school. Coach Meyer and his staff know what they're doing in recruiting -- they don't need your 'help'.
Because of Title IX, it's unlikely the teams cut would be women's teams -- it's the men's non-revenue sports that would be cut.
