It would be interesting if a survey could be done on recruits just after signing day: what made you choose your school. Provide a list of general and agreed upon criteria: distance, friends/family, coaching staff, tradition, comfort/relationships, national titles, bowl wins, early playing time, production of NFL players, facilities, etc. It may be best to have them submitted anonymously but perhaps they could separate the conferences for trending.

It would have to include a large number of subjects to power the survey to be statistically significant. That may provide some base line to debate from.

Great question Nutty; always good to have a bench mark. Hopefully with all the databases out there this type of information will get easier to derive.

If he watched Ren and Stimpy as well as MST3K his is all right in my book. :-)

Overall his work with ESPN seems fair and balanced. His work at OSU was outstanding: on and off the field. On the latter I remember cramming for O-Chem; fun in retrospect but not at the time.

Nice read. Thanks!

You are one self controlled dude! To remain calm during that game I would have needed more Propofol than Michael Jackson, thus limiting my viewing of the game. What a lose lose situation.

I am sincerely glad you are still alive. If I had been you I would be watching with Woody, Bo (for the game), and Nixon (lol).

Thanks for sharing your experience.

I sincerely appreciate every time D.J. makes a HST reference and I click on each and every one. I read Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas in 1975 and was sold on him on the first paragraph containing:

'We are somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs begin to take hold...'

From this point on, the reader can be absolutely sure, there will be no turning back.

'And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas.'

I know this dates me but HST is timeless!

I would read HST regardless of what publication it came from, even Al jazeera Illustrated. He is one of my favorite writers of all time.

Thanks DJ.

Awseome for him, his family, and the Steelers.


Also if DJ had that much money, he would be a millionaire Marionaire (or something like that).

Man, the blocking in the last video is out of this world. There are OLmen wandering around looking for someone to block.


Of course I did not mention the level of competition for the vulvarines (I stole that term from someone here and I apologize for not giving credit due). :-)

What did he do to piss Lewan off?


Never mind, just read comment below that implies the guy may have instigated the deal.

While I agree it is vastly different and challenging to keep up with; having the big time recruits for NFTC and FNL is so exhilirating compared to the dead period we just went through with Franklin the Nittney Lion Face ( a la Lon Chaney Jr for those than can remember) hitting repeatedly. I will take this excitement any time relative to those dark days. :-)
