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

It also sounds to me like OSU is taking the heat for providing data. PSU, on the other hand, has a state law to hide behind. Remember last year when Georgia was proposing something similar? If ESPN really cares, they'd FOIA the data. Guess they only do that when tattoos are involved. They should really hone in on schools that take student fees to support athletics like WVU.

The planes are used by others at the university (Drake, BoT, faculty attending conferences, etc.) over the year. Not all is athletics. If you take Meyer's 26 trips and divide into $350K, you come up with a round trip figure of $13, 461 per plane. Consider many of those trips are to California, Nevada, and Texas. We can assume he had assistants with him on the recruiting trips. That figure is not out of line.

OSU athletics gets zero tax dollars or student fees. They are also fortunate to have Netjets in their backyard. I also question the math. Surely they negotiate bulk usage.

Hurd is an interesting proposition. First question is roster space, then attitude. I know others questioned his state of mind when it was first broached. Assuming all is OK, he'd make an interesting hybrid tight end. Not only could he shift from the wing, he could move into the backfield for a split back look. That would lead to power sweeps with a big lead back or a dangerous runner if the defense over shifts to the wide side.

1. Reminder the USS Intrepid is a floating museum in New York harbor. 

2. Hopefully both Wilson & Schiano will be happy with $1M+ salaries and stay long-term. There comes a tipping point when the extra money isn't worth the additional responsibility (read headaches.) I recall a Schiano article where his wife said he was happiest as an assistant at Miami. You still have to produce, but it's far easier at OSU than virtually anywhere else.

I'm glad  Gene Smith was the bigger man. I'd have been tempted to return fire with "Glad to see you got all your practice time back." People forget TUN was on probation too.

NBC4 story says she normally asked a bartender to escort her to her car. For some reason that night, she didn't. I suspect he was lying in wait for the first young woman to come along. 

The story also says he was linked to evidence in her car. I suspect they were waiting for a body to charge him with murder.

Ole Miss is going to get the NCAA hammer. We'll see how good they are after the transfers due to a bowl ban.
