No worries, I have multiple cats (two), and both were adopted. Call me the Lord of Slightly Fewer Whiskers.
OSU07, Oyster, can we all just get along and agree that I am the idiot here? I don't blame anyone for assuming that DJ wrote this, since he almost always does.
I'm about to update the Skull Session, but here's what I did wrong: I misread this press release, which states that there are 18 retired numbers across OSU's 36 varsity sports. I also missed the following sentence about jerseys no longer being taken out of circulation ("...but jersey numbers will no longer be taken out of circulation. The school's 18 previously retired jersey numbers will remain retired, though, outside of a decision based upon protocols being developed now.")
It would be great if there were a way to track that, but there's not. In baseball, sabermetricians can track umpires' strike zones because there are over 700,000 in-game pitches thrown in any given year. In football, you can't do nearly as much.
It's that darn Hoke- it's going to take years to restore Ohio U's honor.
That's not all: that author (Matt Moore) is a Grizzlies fan, and he absolutely melted down on Twitter when it happened. Someone made a Tumblr of his meltdown, which is worth a read.
For one thing, the game is at home. That makes a big difference: Ohio State was projected to have a 48% chance of winning at Michigan State yesterday, and it currently has a 47% chance of beating Wisconsin at home. Granted, Frank Kaminsky is a nightmare matchup, but it's a plausible upset.
'I could care less' means you care. 'I couldn't care less' means you don't care.
It's not that important, but if you're going to write callous nonsense then at least use proper grammar.
