I think it's "icy" that our coach has his own online dictionary from which one can get definitions of the latest street slang.

Not to mention that ESPN doesn't have a personal agenda against their commissioner and conference like they do with Delaney because of the B1G network and the way he snubbed them and their low-ball contract offer.

I don't doubt that a lot of what Smith says is true, as there are two sides to every story, and the truth usually falls somewhere in the middle. I had it on good word from someone who was on staff on the team at the time that what happened was that Smith had spent much of the summer quarter putting off his studies and hitting the bars, probably not too different from any other player or OSU student. Towards the end of the quarter, he was cramming to make up for lost time, and was thus pulling some late night study sessions. The problem at the time was that there was a curfew for the players as they had begun fall camp, and that's where the problems began, as he was "caught" studying a couple of times after it was lights off, and then made claims that they were limiting his studying. I don't doubt that Uzelac acted the way that he did, but my understanding was that Smith brought on his own troubles initially by prolonging his studies until late in the quarter.

Does everyone in Marion love waffles? There was an article linked to DJ's link about Harding's home with the accompanying quote: "Most people come here and say it looks like the family just left," Hall said. Right down to the tins and boxes of goods stored in the pantry and kitchen, everything illustrates the daily life of the Hardings in their home, even the waffle iron on the stove. Harding dearly loved waffles, as attested by a plaque offering a quote that schoolchildren love: "You eat the first fourteen waffles without syrup, but with lots of butter. Then you put syrup on the next nine, and the last half-dozen you eat simply swimming in syrup. Eaten that way, waffles never hurt anybody."

Thanks for the holiday Skull Session, Deej. It's a rare treat.

I guess since Oklahoma couldn't join the B1G, they decided they'd try to look like Nebraska and Indiana.

Yes, the B1G teams' comparisons to fast food joints is hilariously accurate. Here's TTUN's: "Both are represented by giant yellow (golden/maize) Ms and if you squint, the winged helmets kind of look like they have golden arches on them. McDonald's is one of the biggest fast food chains in the country. Michigan has the largest stadium in the country. But those are just the superficial trappings. Both used to be well-beloved and incredibly popular and successful institutions, utterly dominating everything around them with their legacy and muscle. But some key changes (rising obesity rates, Fast Food Nation and Super Size Me/the rise of the SEC, hiring Rich Rod) led to a downshift in success and a tarnished image. Quick and decisive changes have been implemented to save the brand (redesigned stores, attempts to be more healthy/hiring Brady Hoke), but it may be too early to tell if they can actually change things."

Bennett had a great tweet last night about wondering what other DT's were doing at the moment as he had just finished eating a whole box of cinnamon toast crunch, and was hoping that none of them were working out. I wish I knew how to embed it.
