"...the best man will always play."

It's probably tough to be a stud recruit and have to ride the pine for a year or two (or three!). At least these guys know they're being evaluated in a totally egalitarian/utilitarian manner - "best man will play." As competitors, it makes a player want to work harder to earn that spot. The whole team improves, then, because of competition.

It's a great time to be a Buckeye! (Of course, that has always been true - "How firm thy friendship, O-HI-O!")

Mitch Lyons' tweet in response to Jay Harharhar-baugh's makes him one of my favorite non-Buckeyes!

Maybe AACC should change their mascot to "Hello Kitty".

Of the teams left in the Big Dance, I'd have to root for Sparty or, maybe the X-men. Bucky v. UNC, root for the meteor!

Props to Urban & Co. for not only ID'ing talent/potential, but also developing it.

All Sam would have to do is growl or something in that gravelly drawl & I'd soil myself!

Didn't you guys know that Oyster gave the order to take out bin Laden? (Don't piss him off, he has control of hellfire equipped UAVs!)

Great post, Robobuck. There have been several times, at least, when an 11W member was helped by the commentariat. I didn't see 618's post; I'm just glad we have a community of people that can be snarky, (at times, including myself) profane, iconoclastic and edgy, but when real life intrudes, the vast, vast majority will step up to help out a brother/sister.

Katherine Ross - my wife has known about her since we started dating  (my wife and I, that is - never had a date with K. Ross - as if that needed to be explained)!

My son lives in Boulder now, so I watch CU games once in a while when we get them back in the 419. Walton was the "color" guy on the CU-AZ broadcast a couple of weeks ago; I think he was indulging in some of their legal "Mother Nature" beforehand. At times he's brilliant; at other times he makes Gary Busey look lucid.

Having said all that, he played the game the right way, IMO (that John Wooden influence, no doubt). And I remember watching, in awe, as he went 21 for 22 against Memphis in the 1973 NCAA finals. Probably the greatest individual performance in the history of the Final 4 (he also pulled down double-digit boards).

Wasn't Troy set to take the reigns of the Ravens, then got tonsillitis or strep or something, opening the door for Flacco?

Anyway, he's a skunk weasel killer, so he'll always be mentioned in reverent tones around the Oldschool house.

Somewhere I'm certain Tressel is smiling. 

Again, this staff & its CEO, UFM, prove they're the best in the nation - leaving "no stone unturned" in order to see continued success.

What's the over/under on Harharhar-baugh's tenure at scUM now? I'm going with 3.5 years.
