Actually, there aren't too many more enjoyable ways to spend a bye week Sunday than reading the lamentations of the skunk weasel commentariat as they witness the implosion of their once vaunted program.                                                                       Thanks for mining the gems out of that latrine, Remy

The scUM blogs are serendipitous! One commenter actually said what many of us have been telling Skunk Weasel fans for several years - their best years are all past; the present is bleak; the future even more so; they can hang their hats on the biggest stadium & most wins ...

Schadenfreude ain't just the tree Sigmund sat under to get out of the sun!

Ralph Russo's analysis of the B1G's lack of top talent in their footprint is interesting and informative, but the real issues, as he states, are facilities, support staff, and, of course, what it almost always comes down to - $$$$$. When Bear Bryant was winning championships at 'Bama, the huge northern migration to Dixie hadn't really begun. In fact, most of the high school talent in that era was located in Ohio, PA, CA & TX. So, obviously, getting the coaching talent, supporting them (as 'Bama does with Saban now) with support staff and facilities and $$$$ is essential for the B1G regaining its swagger (I'll leave out the over-signing and bagmen in the SEC).

I love and miss C'Bus! I would move back in a heartbeat if possible.

My wife, too, UCBuckeye (though she was giving me a lot of s#*t during the '02 game when we had our hands full). She ultimately roots for the good guys, but wives, y'know...

The Commentariat is on fire this morning! Well played, Whoa Nellie!

Comment 17 Sep 2014

Someone cited a stat about domestic abuse in the NFL - something on the order of less than 1% of players have been accused, arrested, charged, convicted, etc. with domestic violence IIRC (wish I had a link - it may have been something I heard on the radio). If the stat was correct the problem in the NFL is a lot less than in society at large.

That said, I was taught you NEVER HIT A WOMAN, no matter what!

I counsel people that have been abused (men as well as women); there is a generational link to this behavior - those that have been abused are much more likely to be abusers (yeah, I know; not exactly a rocket science profundity there). It's a difficult cycle to break because of the shame, humiliation, degradation, loss of identity, and a whole host of other issues that result from being abused, then turning into the same monster that was feared/hated/loved.

The happy valley folks live in their own world.

Agree, totally. It's the world of "The Hills Have Eyes" though.

Lol - yeah, Buck I, I actually wouldn't be surprised to see something like that.

Comment 03 Sep 2014

So, they're going to bring in the Storm Troopers if someone, God forbid, stands too much cheering on their favorite team at a major college sporting event; and, they're going to put up a bunch of advertisements around the 'Shoe?! Why not just sell naming rights to it? How about "Nationwide Insurance field at Ohio Stadium" or something similarly clever and corporate?

Maybe they should just pump in crowd noise and let the teams play in front of empty seats (all with corporate-sponsor logos on them, of course!)?

This should send a shiver down every DC in the B1G. Once the O line gets its collective stuff together (and I have total confidence with Coach Warriner training the lads), the coaches should be able to open the playbook and let JT use all the toys at his disposal - I think this will be a really fun team to watch.

But now he's apparently added 15-20 pounds of muscle to a once skinny frame.

Kudos to you, Dontre, for putting in a lot of hard work in Coach Mick's chamber of horrors! We've been excited to see your true potential emerge since you committed to the Buckeyes - now you can either blow by, or blow up, defenders.

Good job, Baylor (wait, let me re-write that): Good job, Baylor! Unfortunately it reminds me of the Who concert tragedy in Cincinnati, December 1979. It's a good thing for BU that no one was seriously injured.

On another note, the 127 year old woman looks like she could still kick a little ass! I'm thinking that daily consumption of tequila may play a part in her longevity, too.

...let's trade Rutgers for Navy as members of the Big Ten...

Just put them in the West, please! I'd hate to think about playing these guys every year! As someone mentioned on another thread, in the first half I was wishing we had opened with a cupcake (yeah, Sparty & scUM!); by the end of the game, I was glad we had played a tough, disciplined opponent that made us work hard for the "W".

Lol! My God the resemblance is amazing!

About the right age, too, I think!

My buddy and I got kicked out of choir and had to serve an in-school suspension for junk-tapping each other in high school. It was hilarious!

At first glance, I thought a high school kid had wandered over to a Pop Warner practice. Concur, Apack614, that is one large young man! Wonder if he can run at all - what a weapon at tight end!
