Greg Oden plead guilty to battery earlier this month. From USA Today:

Oden was subsequently charged with two felony battery counts and two misdemeanor battery counts. In December 2014, court documents state Oden pleaded guilty to battery with moderate bodily injury, a felony, while the other three charges were dismissed.

At sentencing, Oden was fined $200 and ordered to complete 26 weeks of domestic violence counseling, alcoholics anonymous classes and 909 days of probation, court documents state. A no contact order was also put into place.

So there you go. Oden did the crime and he's doing the time (and apparently adhering to his no consumption order as well.) He was also seen at OSU basketball games before the plea deal was reached.

I'd also point out there are five months between August and February. I see your point, but I don't see how a humorous picture of Greg Oden at Benihana is some sort of endorsement of domestic violence, which seems to be what you're accusing me of.

Michigan State owned that game from the tip. Just because OSU made close late doesn't mean the game itself was close. I watched the entire game and at no point did I think OSU was going to win.  

Rout may have been too strong if you like, but overall point stands.
