I tried to bypass English 101 by taking an online clep test.  The teacher told us the password to access the test was the word “grammar.”  After numerous failed attempts to access the test, I told her the password was defective and showed her that it wasn’t working.  It was then she told me that grammar is not spelled with an “er” at the end.   Yeah, I didn’t pass the test.

I hate Michigan as much as the next Buckeye, but I would like to see Hoke stick around for a few more years of mediocrity.  I enjoyed the RichRod years.  Seeing those Buckeye fans hold that banner up at The Game in *ichigan stadium with the "We love RichRod" sign was priceless.

I don’t know Tressel’s politics, but I’d love to see him run for public office.  He’s excellent at speaking like a politician; he can talk and say nothing better than just about anyone.  Plus, I think it would be cool to see him make a speech in the Senate wearing a sweater vest.

From that recording, it sounds like Waters did not put up with a lack of discipline, which makes it seem a bit odd that he was fired for NOT disciplining enough.  While the recording does not put Waters in the best light, it shows that he did discipline the band members somewhat.

I just saw the story headline on Yahoo and Jim Rome mentioned it on his show.  I hate to see TBDBITL and tOSU tarnished like this.  The TBDBITL halftime shows are revolutionary and I hope the next director will continue it.  I’m concerned that a lot of talented people (Gee, Waters, Tressell) get thrown overboard so easily when mistakes are made.  I’d like to see tOSU stand by its people a little more and give them a second chance.  Obviously Gee, Waters and the Tressel situations are different in terms of the severity of the mistakes made, but I don’t know that a quick firing is always the best answer.  Most people learn from mistakes and become better people. Redemption is good.

I would have liked to see him stick around another year, but I can understand that he wants to make some money.   I think he can improve his game in Europe as well as he can in college.  If he improves, the NBA will want him.  If not, he can make a good living in Europe.  Either way, he’s going to get paid a lot of money to play a fun game, so he’s in a good situation.

As a Utah State undergrad, I participated in a few of those! Great atmosphere for college basketball!  The arena only sits about 10,000, buts its the loudest basketball venue I've ever been to.  Someone please upvote the above post for me! :)
