The best bathrooms have a double-hinge swinging door and motion sensor soap, faucet and paper towels. Xanadu!

I throw the paper towel behind the door with the others. I figure the janitor will eventually take the hint to move the garbage can.

I am out here in SLC as well after grad school at OSU. Not a bad place if you love mountains, skiing and no humidity. Plus, it's fun to rub it in Ute fans faces that Urban left them and now wins titles for the Buckeyes.

If Kalis would have just kept his mouth shut, it wouldn't have been such a big deal. Recruits flip all the time. But he had to go out and talk trash about "blood on the field."  I hope the Buckeyes continue to pummel him for his last two years.

Appreciate the research, Slumlord.  I think people underestimate the stigma that some people associate with tattoos. In the white collar marketplace, I believe a visible tattoo is likely to hurt much more than it could ever help. I've seen it happen.  I've heard hiring managers say things like "I don't want another person with a bunch of weird tattoos and eyebrow piercings...."  Appearance absolutely matters.

I don't understand the appeal of tattoos either or other types of self-mutilation (gauges that stretch the ear lobes).  Its ultimately their body, and if they are okay with the consequences, then I don't care.  Just don't ask the taxpayers to pay for its removal because no one will hire you because you got a tattoo on your forehead.  That's when I start to have a problem.

If the Buckeyes play like they did against Maryland, they may have half a dozen games or more left. If they play like they did against wisky, well, then just two. I hope it's the former!

Step away from the ledge and enjoy the CFP trophy. Wisconsin's players won't be laughing when Kentucky gives them a beat down.

Recruiting ranking are essentially guesses.  Obviously Amir dominated high school with his size alone and his "lack of motor" was overshadowed.  While it is frustrating to watch his potential be unfulfilled, I think it unfair for people to demonize the kid.  He's not the first highly rated recruit not to have a great college career.  Its true he didn't live up to anyone's expectations; the "experts" were simply wrong about him.
