- 58 degrees and sunny Saturday.
I was at the MSU Rutgers game and Caroo is a real mongoose to handle. Period. And I'm sayin' it again, seven rows from the top of the stadium above the 20-25 yard line, the sirens and booming bass and oscillating noise blaring from the speakers until --at times-- too close to the snap are ear-splitting and should be watched. It's a puny stadium but the crowd is into the game and they almost beat a healthier MSU than MSU is now.

I can't find any Bowl or Stadium sites to buy a program. in 2002 (I was there!) you could get them online I think for $25. From the Fiesta Bowl if I recall....
A blogger named Carpenter wrote this on an ESPN.go site:
Let's look at some stats on the mighty Ducks....As a Buckeye, I know this passing offense of the Ducks will destroy us...we have no chance to slow them down...or do we? Just whom has Oregon played this year.....let's look at the defenses of the teams the mighty Ducks have whooped up on, shall we? Keep in mind, there are 128 teams in college football at this level.
Cal, ranked dead last in all of football against the pass, #128
Wa State, ranked 2nd to dead last, at #127
Univ Wa...# 124
MIghty Az, co conf champion, #121
USC at #118
Mighty Ducks are #111, just for comparison sake
Az State #106
Mighty Buffalo's of Colorado, #103
Oregon St #94
Utah at #93
Lastly, mighty Stanford is the only team in the top 20, #8.
So in conclusion, the mighty Ducks have some inflated #'s against awful competition in the passing game. This just shows how AWFUL the PAC defenses are. So before we get too carried away, just chew on these #'s for a bit. Oh and by the way, OSU is ranked # 16!!!

Clark gushed about a surprise OSU offer in the Plain Dealer in 2013 as a junior.
In 2014 He had scrotUM and USC and Texas as his choicces per the recruiting sites. We need a TE. Chances or scuttlebutt anybody?
TE Chris Clark has just left scrotUM. He gushed in the Plain Dealer in 2013 about getting an offer. Texas and USC were highest en the list after scrotUM. Any predictions?
COUNTING THE CURRENT FIVE STARS FOR 2015:
ESPN = 13 (TWO BUCKEYES!)
RIVALS = 33
247 = 35
MINE PRESENTLY = 12 (Coincidentally, all Buckeyes, BTW)
I've gone back ten years on Rivals, Scout, etc. to look at the top recruiting classes (and at others in BIG) to see what percentage of 5* and 4*s names are memorable (for one reason or the other; in the pros, etc.). Recruiting is quite a craps shoot, though rather have fours and fives than twos and threes. I'm surprised at all the 2*s in the MAC and some BIGs now too.
How bout a "stand your ground (on the dance floor)" defense for Carlos? He "fled" too. To avoid further assault. Has all states' laws covered. If the helmet don't fit, you must acquit. Seriously, another OH S_ _ _! event, but I've learned first hand in my profession to a) mistrust print media reports; b) same for police reports the victim files; and c) don't rush to judgment or think things are "fixed" when an athlete gets charges reduced or dismissed.
Look at "domestic violence" charges. Ask any divorce lawyer to tell you some war stories:
Husband has a TRO prohibiting him from contact with child or spouse. Wife says, "Can't get off work; mom's at the doctors. Please pick Sally up after school at 2:45."
Then her sister is at school filming husband and wife as both arrive, and wife goes ape with the acting. In court, wife says she called husband only to say support payment hasn't been deposited and he threatened to kill the kid, so she called her sister (or more often, the cops). Women Dom Rel. judges? GOOD LUCK!
Storm Klein? Who knows what really went on. When I was his age, I had a meltdown because my wifE-to-be stepped in goose poop at the lake in her Papagallas and got my GTO carpet dirty.
Same thing with "stalking charges." A lot of BS and abuse, then the REAL cases are poo-pooed because of it.
