How important is it/should it be for the man to be born in Ohio? Jesse Owens was born in Alabama and lived there for his early childhood, but his greatest achievements took place as an Ohioan.

I'm sure it has been mentioned somewhere around here in the past few days, but today's Big Ten Tournament Championship game is only the second in the last nine (dating back to 2006) that has not featured the Buckeyes. Let's hear it for consistency.

Am I missing something here? Kyle, you posted this article at 7:47. I just read an article on Yahoo posted by "The Sports XChange" posted at 9:00 pm that is very, very similar to yours. I call bullshit. Someone is plagiarizing you. Has this happened before and I just never noticed or saw comments about it? Is this a typical thing in sports journalism? I don't want to start something if there is nothing to start, but this is fishy to me...

The game is obviously not over when they storm the court. Remember that whole revelation we learned after the Cal game, about how they're winning in life because they actually learn things at their superior institution? At least we can count.

That link to the Sooners blog cites the infamous "trusted sources". I'll believe it when someone is convinced enough to tell us their name.

It is just infuriating to listen to this - the double standard and circular logic is just appalling. Jesse Palmer says it's hard to ignore recent history, and uses that to justify giving an SEC team the benefit of the doubt with one loss. Yet his argument that recent history can't be discounted stops short of giving Ohio State credit for a 25 game win streak. Meanwhile, the lack of ranked teams on Michigan State's schedule is eviscerated, while FSU's opponent's ranked wins (Virginia Tech and Miami) are now unranked. Just come out and say it: 7 years later you still are penalizing Ohio State for a bad game against Florida. Your justifications are a farce. 

I've done a good job keeping myself composed these last several weeks and toning down the tin-foil hat "everyone is out to get us" mentality but something just snapped in me listening to that drivel tonight. I hope our defense burns Lucas Oil Stadium to the ground next week because it sounds like that's the only outcome superior to a 21-35 loss to LSU.

I can't say I disagree with this. The University might not have officially sanctioned the event, but they tacitly allowed it to take place on state property. Every year I jumped, I always ended up back home that night wondering, only 95% sarcastically, if some particularly drunk person I had seen ended up surviving the night. The last thing we need is outrage against Ohio State's negligence, whether this is actually the case or not. There are going to be a lot of people upset by this but I think it's important to keep in mind people's safety, and on a larger scale the university's best interests. Imagine the public records colonoscopy (and subsequent state lawsuits) into OSU's knowledge of the danger while still allowing it to go on. 

I for one always took it as a personal challenge to jump stone sober, except for the time I jumped in during May after our senior bar crawl, when I was the opposite of that.

I was just reading about Lane Kiffin's career stats, and I had completely forgotten he coached the Raiders before he was at Tennessee. It reminds me of the story from a while back about the couple who just kind of wandered into the White House for dinner and nobody noticed. How did this numbskull con his way into an NFL head coaching position? How and why did anyone think this man was capable of winning football games under any circumstances?

Good for Clark in green - he was in tears while he was broadcasting and his son was so close to getting past North Carolina a couple of years ago in the tournament. 

Comment 08 Nov 2013

I have learned my lesson about stories verified only by a "source" afraid to go by name. I'll believe it when someone who can stake their identity on it can cite it. 

Comment 26 Oct 2013

When I see scenes like this at schools like USC and Miami, I can't help but wonder what it would take for the Horseshoe to look like that. What catastrophe would have to befall the Buckeyes for us to lose interest like that? I honestly don't know if there is one.
