Have ever found yourself in bed on a sleepless night, wondering to yourself, 'How does he do it? How does Johnny maintain his position at the top of the blogging world with such style and panache? What can I do to be just like him?'

Of course you have, and you'll be happy to know it's a simple three step process.

Step one: live in Ohio your entire life, save for one insane year in the far east, and obtain both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from the finest university in the world.

Step two: become a mediocre writer. And I mean REALLY mediocre.

Step three: harass and annoy the creators of a semi-popular OSU blog until they give you a writing position out of pity. Coast forever.

  • COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYER: three way tie between krenzel, yao smith, and brian rolle
  • NFL TEAM: the bengals. i make poor life decisions.
  • NHL TEAM: CBJ. i can name more than three players now!
  • NBA TEAM: nooooope

you're right about that last part, and i hope that if we're aware of it, we wont make the same mistakes.

"i think that" might be better read as "i'd like to think that"

i think a better question is: does that matter, even a little bit? what i mean is, i dont think FSU, which hired bobby bowden for a billion years, gives two craps about having to vacate anything

duuuuudddeee you really should be the absolute last person that wants to start bringing up scandals. noah spence, really?

this is a pretty bad response but if youre going to whine about bowl games and 13 game seasons then whatever, i can do it this way too:

james franklin won 69% of his games in the last two years at vandy. that hasn't been done since the 1930s at vanderbilt. they hadnt won that many games percentage wise in a single season since the 1950s. vandy hadnt been above .500 in SEC play since the early 80s. another thing to keep in mind is that under franklin, vandy won more games in his first season than they did the previous two seasons combined. he took a team of scrubs and turned them into a respectable team immediately, and he did it in the best football conference in the country.

oh, and of the seven four star recruits penn state has for 2015, four of them were recruited and given at least a soft offer by ohio state.

yeah that's the other thing; my sister went to vanderbilt and having been down there several times i can tell you that the overall support for their football program is laughable, and their stadium is a glorified high school field. what franklin did in nashville is astounding, and if he's low-tier, then most of the big ten coaches are an order of magnitude worse than that.

lol james franklin took vanderbilt (VANDERBILT) which had been a 2-10 team the year before he was hired to two consecutive nine win seasons (which vanderbilt had only done TWO OTHER TIMES since 1890 and never back to back), three straight bowl games (vanderbilt had only gone to four other bowl games in the entire history of their football team, none consecutively), won two of those (again, tying the total amount of bowl wins all time for vandy). ALSO he was the first vandy coach to win five SEC games since ray morrison in 1935 jeeeeesus

my point is that a) james franklin is an insanely talented coach who took one of the worst SEC programs and turned it into a consistent winner, b) penn state is probably better than most people think and already have a butt ton of four star recruits already committed, and c) 75% of the big ten is dog shit and even a halfway decent psu team is going to make waves. if franklin stays, they're set up for a comeback, because he is a legit coach and will absolutely DOMINATE pennsylvania recruiting

Comment 28 Mar 2014

that joke was definitely 100% tongue in cheek, and i completely agree with everything you've written. the morrill land grant act was probably the best non war piece of legislation that lincoln signed, AND it's where the two towers on campus get their names from!

jesse owens was an insane athlete and a black man in a horribly segregated america, who made hitler's aryan race ideals look like the giant turds that they were right in front of his stupid face. he fought racism simply by being awesome, and it's really really sad that he never got his due when he came back home. (the story of hitler snubbing him is a myth. owens later said "Hitler didn't snub me – it was FDR who snubbed me. The president didn't even send me a telegram." that's some BS)

also messed up is that jesse owens didn't even get a scholarship from OSU. so i dunno, i love woody and think he was the man, but if there's one guy who can beat coach hayes, it's owens. FOUR WORLD RECORDS IN 45 MINUTES JEEESSSUUUUSSS
