  • SPORTS MOMENT: When the sousaphone player who dotted the "i" at the beginning of the 2009 USC game looked down, saw the camera man in his way, and did his sousaphone-twirling bow anyway, smacking the crap out of that camera. That dumbass camera man should have known better than get in the way of a man dotting the "i"! http://youtu.be/qwGxDBaNSik

For the record, whenever *I* have had the TV on during prime time for the last month or so and I have been scanning through the cable channels, ESPN Classic has *always* been playing an SEC game (if they were playing football at all).  That is not made up or bullshit.  That much is fact.

However, apparently I am just the most unlucky bastard in the universe.  Because after scanning through ESPN Classic's programming for last week and next week, I see that the claim I made was not accurate.  For every SEC game that I found, I found 2 games that were not from the SEC.  If I hadn't been running late for work, I could have checked my statement before making it.  I hereby apologize to anyone I inadvertently misled with my false statement. 

In keeping with my pledge, I now believe that ESPN is a completely unbiased journalistic entity.  Thanks for letting me set the record straight.

If ESPN doesn't have an SEC bias, why do they only play SEC games on ESPN Classic?  You can make an argument that the SEC is dominant now or even for the last decade.  But forever?  There has never been a football game worth watching that wasn't from the SEC?  That's what ESPN Classic channel seems to think.  When ESPN Classic starts showing more variety, I'll entertain the notion that ESPN is an unbiased journalistic entity.

It's college football.  Someone is going to miss an assignment and blow their coverage in any given game.  When that happens, it's good to have a safety as fast, tough, and athletic as Roby was who can bring them down before the goal line.

If Dubgate doesn't start until 2 pm, I'll only have about an hour and a half to get my drink on before I leave for the Skull Session.  ...

Oh well.  Challenge Accepted!

Don't forget about the rally to support Jon Waters at 3 pm at Flannagan's Dublin.

If it's not physically addictive, I don't know what it means to say "they can't live without the feeling."  What's the difference between "can't live without it" and "prefer/choose to live with it"?  And if there is a difference, how do we know?

I'm with you Johnny.  I endured an unending off-season wishing for dominant Buckeye football.  So why bitch about it when it is right in front of your ingrate eyeballs?

Feels like 2011 all over again.

Herman's playcalling "brilliance" became suspect during last year's B1G Championship Game.  After last night's performance, it is officially disproved.

For those that were not there yesterday, there was a plane flying over the stadium trailing a banner that read, "Support Jon Waters." Before the Skull Session, the band played a slightly slower, sadder version of the Superman theme in his honor. I picked up a leaflet some people were handing out advertising a rally to support him. Those who are interested can go to www.westandwithjonwaters.com for more info.

When do Buckeye fans NOT wear scarlet in the Shoe?  I mean seriously, isn't every home game at the Shoe a "scarlet out"?
