Wish Coach Meyer would teach the "Why Athletes Go Broke" link during his real life classes. As a bankruptcy attorney, I had the sorrow of dealing with two bankruptcies of NCAA FB/NFL players. It is amazing how fast they can burn through millions and be left with nothing. It concerns me that one of the first things Zeke Elliot did with his money was "buy a house for his mom". Yep, that is in the playbook. Seen that. I'm sure that, as we speak, the parasites are lining up to get just a taste of the signing bonus and future compensation. Face it guys, you aren't God's gift to business (even if you majored in business). Be conservative; put it away in some long term investments.

If his death serves anything, I would hope that it makes a few of us step back and consider how we relate to other drivers. Recently, watching Louis CK's "Oh My God" I had an epiphany about my own behaviour with respect to other drivers. We say things behind the wheel that we would never say in maybe a crowded elevator or face to face with another human being. Instead, while driving a 3,000-pound weapon, amongst other 3,000-pound weapons, we turn into irrational monsters of rage. Listen to yourself as you describe other human beings as "worthless pieces of s#it", or ponder the efficiency of vehicle mounted machine guns. Many of us create an even more potentially dangerous situation by having handguns in the vehicle.

As the other driver found, Will Smith was someone's son, someone's husband, and worst of all, someone's dad. That other driver's life has changed forever. Next time you are out on the road, listen to yourself. And thanks Louis, you helped me make a profound change in my life for the better.  RIP #93...forever a Buckeye.

I cried when I learned of Woody's death because the douchebag media could only show replays of the Clemson hit. How can you encapsulate the life of such a great man in only 8 seconds of irrational rage? If you were born in 1951, Woody Hayes was all you ever knew. But my God, what an incredible, sensitive, caring, but tough man.

BTW, I can attest to the astroturf watering. Walking past the open end of the Shoe, I looked, kept walking, and then had one of those "hey, wait a minute" moments. I was told once that it also kept the turf from getting brittle...
