there is certainly a view that his body has taken a pounding and his production will hit a wall soon-- maybe this year.  Take it with a grain of salt- but the fantasy guidance ive seen is that he is still a first rounder, but end of first round.

Uncle RIco is awesome:

Uncle Rico: How much you wanna make a bet I can throw a football over them mountains?... Yeah... Coach woulda put me in fourth quarter, we would've been state champions. No doubt. No doubt in my mind.

Uncle Rico: So what do you think?
Kip: It's pretty cool, I guess.
Uncle Rico: Ohhhh, man I wish I could go back in time. I'd take state.
Napoleon Dynamite: This is pretty much the worst video ever made.
Kip: Napoleon, like anyone can even know that.
Uncle Rico: You know what, Napoleon? You can leave.

Napoleon Dynamite: Grandma just called and said you're supposed to go home.
Uncle Rico: She didn't tell me anything.
Napoleon Dynamite: Too bad, she said she doesn't want you here when she gets back because you've been ruining everybody's lives and eating all our steak.
Uncle Rico: I'm not goin' anywhere, Napoleon.

Since Oklahoma is already there, I wouldnt go crazy with upper-tier teams, but I would have liked to have seen something better than UNLV.     Louisville, Kentucky, WVA, VA, Arizona, ASU, Texas Tech, Kansas, BYU would have been fine additions.

For 2018, I'm ok with Oregon State, but would like to see another school from a  power conference added (looks like there is still an opening). And i certainly wouldnt argue with a marquee game.

I'm happy to defer to the professionals; I really don't have any interest in speaking with a recruit in any form.  I am sure, however, that I am in the minority.

Wasn't it against MSU that he scored on a run, pass and punt return?

Yes- its at the 1:25 mark in the video that you posted.

It makes me feel very old when the "old timey" photo of OSU's campus that leads off the Skull Session corresponds to a period when I attended OSU!

Nice post. How about a favorite 75 dead show rec tiboot? Ha

Ha. not much to go on for '75 Dead (only 4 shows that year). Only one i have is One from the Vault - Great American Music Hall (though i have part of one of the other shows from that year).  On the other hand, I can recommend plenty of '72 or '77 shows, which i think were their best years (basically, anything from May 1977 or the European 72 shows).  Also, i have a personal attachment to the April 1978 show i attended at Vets in Columbus!

Is this John Elway?

---If Ohio State ever plays Stanford in the Rose Bowl I will be rooting for Stanford. Although I rarely do so, I can legitimately refer to the Cardinal as 'we'.

- I've never actually heard anyone from Ohio State say "THE," only from others trying to make fun of it. I've created a rule in my head that it's either "Ohio State" or "The Ohio State University". "The Ohio State" and "Ohio State University" are incorrect, and any emphasis on "The" is pretentious.

I agree with this one as well. I think the university started focusing on this around the time i graduated ('87).  I've never used it. Not once. And i find it embarrassing.

Also, more confessions - I didnt mind it when some of the Cooper teams and later Tres teams had a thug reputation.  I also dont mind when the coaches make exceptions for talented players who run into discipline issues (Tres would have played both Roby and Carlos every game last year).

I think Michigan's "Those who stay will be champions" is pretty cool.

I agree but its even cooler to say "Those who stay will be 7-6"

I don't like message boards, especially Ohio State ones. Seeing words like scUM, Missagain, Noter Dumb and replacing the S with a $ in any school's initials makes my eyes roll back in my head far enough to see where my mullet would be if I was dopey enough to call Ohio State's opponents such mildly condescending and uncreative names.

^this x1000.  In that regard, I've been a Buckeye fan since 1970, graduated from OSU, attended every home game from '73 to 87, never miss a game and my confession is that I've never once used the terms "Team up North", "TTUN", "ScUM", etc.  I find "scUM" to be particularly silly. 

Other confessions - I do think that On Wisconsin, Hail to the Victors, ND fight song and Fight On (USC) are all great, even though i hate each one of those teams.  Also, Michigan's helmets are cool (but the bumble bee uniforms suck).  Camp Randall looks like an awesome place. Fortunately, i find nothing to admire with respect to Penn State (always thought Paterno was a pompous ass)

There is a story about Daly at a pro am, putting on a driving exhibition. There was stadium seating behind him. He tee'd it up but turned around to face the crowd and drove it over their heads.  Had he been  a little off, he could have killed someone.
