Browns have the worst luck with owners. The one prior was the guy that helped broker the deal for Art and his son cared more about soccer. This one is a carpetbagging, no good SOB who tried to defraud truck drivers and who is clueless.

It would be nice if someday a person who grew up in Ohio as a diehard fan bought the team. One can dream.

As for the re-brand. Yawn. I'd have liked to seen that mock up helmet with the dog on it as their new helmet and brand.

A poster on the Pitt rivals board said this:

Again, all money raised goes to one place: PSU. 

And of that money, per direction of PSU's Four Diamond Fund (not at the direction of any donor), less than 15% goes directly to patient care, family support, or is directly and immediately to fund any research. 

Per Thon and Four Diamond Fund's own annual reports, the vast majority goes into endowment funds and operations reserves at Penn State Hershey.

Can you say, conflict of interest?

Great comment on Deadspin:

Went to PSU for undergrad, got my first masters there. Got my professional degree elsewhere. There are some incredibly brilliant people at PSU at the leading edge of the intellect distribution, but the overwhelming majority are a bit, erm, lacking.

THON had great results, but to me it always seemed to serve as a vessel for, fraternities, sororities, and those that crave attention to pat themselves on the back. There are a lot of people who participate selflessly, but the most vocal element are those that want the attention for "doing a great thing." To boot, most of the fundraising doubles as a social/ pledge event for a lot of the greeks. -Great results, questionable means.

I can't say I entirely disagree with Olbermann.

Comment 24 Feb 2015

Obviously I'm a biased fan, but I can't imagine being a recruit from Ohio saying no to Urban Meyer, and that was before winning a national championship. How can you say no to being part of the national champs? Kraemer must really love ND to go up there and play for that purple faced screamer and not even have a chance to sniff at a national title. Really hope that he doesn't end up as the #1 ranked recruit in Ohio because it always annoyed me seeing OSU not snag the #1 Ohio recruit.

Comment 24 Feb 2015

The dog flat out sucks. I expected something radical like maybe incorporating the look of an actual mastiff into the logo since that is the breed of the real, live unofficial mascot that is at the games. This dog design they are using looks way too cartoony.

Throw in Donovan Peoples-Jones too, a national top 20 on 247's 2017 composite list.

Comment 23 Feb 2015

I read that article. Didn't know they have a player called John "Smokey" Brown. Smokey Brown is one of the coolest nicknames in the NFL. Instant fan of his now.

Comment 22 Feb 2015

Matta haters are crazy. I grew up following the Bucks in the 80's and early 90's. The 80's were largely forgettable. The 90's had some very good teams led by Jimmy Jackson for 3 years. Then Ayers drove the team into the ground. O'Brien's teams were mediocre save for the '99 team. Matta puts out elite teams almost every year. This is as good as its going to get at OSU and winning a championship is largely a matter of luck and matchups in the tourney.

Did Whitfield send Braxton along with Winston and Petty to get tutelage under The Savior? If so, did Braxton wear a suit when he was there?

Comment 19 Feb 2015

Can you feel him?
Now he's coming back we can steal him (from Rutgers).
If we bridge this gap,
We can see you
Through the curtains of the waterfall at the Woody.

When We lost him,
Birm held our hand,
But We tossed it,
Didn't understand,
You were waiting,
As We dove into the waterfall at the Woody.

So say Guarantano!
Say Guarantano!
Say Guarantano!

Say Guarantano!
Say Guarantano!
Say Guarantano!
Say Guarantano!

Can you feel our love?
Bombs away,
Bombs away,
Bombs away.
Can you feel our love?
Bombs away,
Bombs away,
Bombs away,
Say Guarantano!

Comment 19 Feb 2015

Begs the question what really is a "Meyer qb" because Jones isn't really the type Meyer likes in that he's not that fast and isn't ideal to run the read option. Hope Meyer is flexible enough to adapt his system to Jones because regardless of the system Jones just wins on the biggest stage. You gotta go with the hot hand.

Comment 18 Feb 2015

Thought I read somewhere that Lucas averaged a triple double over the course of a season while at OSU. I'd put Lucas up against any college player from any team. Perhaps the greatest college basketball player ever. From his wiki:

"He was named to Sports Illustrated '​s five-man College All-Century Team in 1999."

Comment 18 Feb 2015

Did the live mastiff mascot ever make his appearance at games? I think using the mastiff in their logo would be cool.

Comment 18 Feb 2015

Err...Jameis better know when to cut Jimmy off. Wouldn't want him pleading out of another DUI before the season starts.

Comment 15 Feb 2015

Speaking of porn stars, here's Mia Khalifa's pitch to Braxton. You've got porn stars and sunny weather down there. Braxton must have really strong will power to turn that down! Not gonna do the proper link since I think I'll probably get flagged for jiggly things in the video...
