Actually, comes from my call sign (USAF). My last name is Day so the original connection is with Camptown Races (all the Doo Dah Day).

Great feature from last year was a commenter who was a physician that (I ass-ume) did sports medicine. He used to discuss injuries like this, how they occur, consequences, therapy. Was a great feature. Whatever happened to that guy?

I was at the last game in Norman. Leading up to the game, tOSU was considered an underdog. In fact, a fellow employee at Vance AFB in Enid, OK talked about it like it was a given. I will say, the folks in Norman (at least then) were some of the most polite and friendly fans I have experienced, both before and after the game. Downside...listening to Boomer Sooner for 4 straight hours. Almost worse than Hail to the Victors.... 

On Monday morning, my co-worker encountered a room that had been "Buckeyed". Buckeyes were all over his office, in his desk drawers...took him a few hours to clean it up.

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.
