Buckeyes. What the Cavs did is impressive but beating 3 different top 10 teams away from home with a 3rd string quarterback is next level stuff.

Mrs. Jedkat used to work for the USGA and their goal is to set the US Open course so the winner falls between even and 3 over.

I edited my response before your reply because I realized it wasn't appropriate.

per your other comment I've thought quite deeply about these things per my adjusted comment and am quite comfortable with my views on this particular matter.

Self Edit: Not appropriate response on my part.

Knowing several sexual assault victims and their stories what was taken from the rest of their life - BY FORCE - far outweighs anything else that comes the guilty's way.

 just feel like this article is blaming me/sports fans for these horrible issues when it's solely the corrupt judges, sadistic kids, or slimy coaches

Or, and just here me out, maybe the article is really forcing us to realize that maybe we should focus on preventing these heinous acts from happening to begin with and focus on supporting the victims and victim advocacy groups.

There's a quote from the West Wing that, although not the same, ponders a lot of the same emotions I believe Ramzy is getting to regarding our thoughts going straight to the depth chart (which he fully admits to by the way as well):

President Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet: Why is a Kundunese life worth less to me than an American life? 
Will Bailey: I don't know, sir, but it is. 

Ramzy is trying to make all lives (sans rapists) the same
