Saw the 1968 Rose Bowl live. Was there in Tempe for the greatest college football game ever. Flew the OSU flag while stationed in Afghanistan.


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Nothing will ever top beating Miami in Tempe. When Cie Grant thew Dorsey to the ground, all the close, up not quite, national championship moments such as 1976 and 1980, Ron Springs slip, Clements punt to the helmet, etc. washed away.
  • NFL TEAM: whoever has the most Buckeyes
  • MLB TEAM: New York Yankees
  • SOCCER TEAM: not a real sport

1. Any of the suggestions above about adding scholarships need to keep Title IX in mind. If you add to football, you need an offset on the women  side. 

2. Urban talks about July being a dead period. I agree to give the coaches a break. But that won't stop players from showing up on their own. Allegedly it was a poor academic showing when Gary & his mother visited on their own that turned them against OSU. I have my doubts on that, but it does show you have to be ready even during dead periods.

At least there will be something sane to balance the Harbaugh insanity. My favorite definition of news is those things different from yesterday. By that definition, Harbaugh fits. But he's reached the point of whacko saturation.

Cincinnati makes sense as one to provide a travel partner for WVU. Look at how the PAC-12 schedules basketball for an idea of how travel partners work. The other school is tough. There are no candidates near Iowa State. Might as well be BYU.

I've posited ESPN could broker a Texas entry to the B1G as a way to get out from underneath the burden of the Longhorn Network. Academic affiliation does not matter to recruits, but it does matter to college presidents. Perhaps access to the CIC and slightly more money than what they are making as part of the Big 12 would cause them to swallow their autonomy.

Look at Johns Hopkins as an adjunct member. Was it their lacrosse prowess or the fact they are #1 for Federal grants?

I'm partial to Smirnoff triple distilled 100 proof. Quicker buzz, less prone to hangover. Have a 70s party. Find a section of shag carpet and make Harvey Wallbangers. OJ and vodka with a Galliano float. There also is a delicious cake recipe.

The Big Ten rigged PSU's entry schedule to give them the best chance to get to the Rose Bowl. As much as it pains me to say, Michigan was the dominant conference team in the late 80's/early 90's. PSU got a bye before the Michigan game their first four years in the league. They got a bye before OSU their first two years. And OSU had to play at PSU two of their first three games including back-to-back in 1993 & 1994. Why did they get these schedule breaks before the two best teams in the conference and not rotated to other teams? Why not before Indiana and Iowa? Seeing as how they went to the Rose Bowl in year two it worked. 

Paterno was famous for rigging his schedule. He put byes before playing Alabama. After agreeing to open with OSU, he moved Temple to the week before. Woody was furious.

I'd love to see the accounting. OSU does directly contribute to the Library. But I am sure the amount includes tuition -going up for out of state athletes -and bond payments for athletic facilities. On top of that, athletics pays rent for use of the same facilities. I was told it was cheaper to play a basketball game at Nationwide than the Schott. That's like paying a mortgage and rent on your house.

I don't think you pass on Bruce in any circumstance. As for DT, you have to compare current players to what's available. Larry Johnson knows his current talent. Can it suffice next season? Would King be an upgrade over Landers/Hamilton? If not, bank the scholarship for a banner 2017. I'd rather see two safety prospects because the the injury uncertainty over Smith/Burrows. With the number of spread teams OSU faces next season, DB depth will be critical.
