DJ, as much as your Virginia Slims comparison made me laugh, I have to disagree. When one sneaks a smoke from their mother's purse, one smokes it in secret. What Ohio State is going to do to PSU will be on display for the world to see. I think of it more like a top shelf hit man spotting a new Cuban in the breast pocket of his assignment. He pulls the fine cigar out and casually enjoys the robust flavor as his victim's blood slowly pools underneath him.

While everyone knows that Archie is the only two time Heisman winner, most people don't realize that Pace is the only two time Lombardi winner. I am utterly convinced that if he had come back for his senior year he would have won the Heisman, along with a third Lombardi. He is hands-down the most dominate lineman, offensive or defensive, that I have ever seen.

I feel sorry for Penn St. fans. It took me about six months to admit that Jim Tressel lied and cheated, and that was to cover up selling personal belongings to obtain tattoo money. I can't imagine how long it will take them to finally say out loud that Joe Paterno protected a child rapist for decades. In all seriousness, it must take so much mental energy to just fight those blue and white demons associated with this story.

As a side note, the butthurt over the 2014 game on Black Shoes Diaries is incredible. I know they are utterly desperate to make us bitter rivals, but I would put them about 5th on our list in the BIG. In fact, the only reason I enjoy beating them every year is because it means so much to them and so little to us.

I'm sorry, but nothing about the Penn St. program worries me at this point. Nothing. At least I can look at Michigan and see that Harbaugh is recruiting better and coaching better. PSU is still stuck in neutral as far as I'm concerned.

Sorry, but I don't buy the "crowd is more into it" argument, unless by into it you mean more drunk. I have been to games in scorching heat, freezing rain and frigid temperatures, and in all of those games the crowd was jacked throughout. I hate night games. I know that makes me a minority, but if your idea of why you go to a Bucks game is to party for eight hours, then you have lost me. To me, the GAME ITSELF is all I need. The crowd creates it's own atmosphere, as does winning.

I actually got into a debate with a woman from North Carolina over this. I was staggered to find out that they take credit for the Wright Brothers. I told her that NC taking credit for the Wright Brothers just because the flight took place there is like the Pacific Ocean taking credit for the moon landing because the capsule landed in it. That shut her up.
