Estaban Weaver was the best basketball player I've ever seen in person at any level and I. Period. I've told the story on here before but ... I watched one of his practices when he was in high school and he threw an alley oop to himself off of the side wall of the gym. Like above the pushed in bleachers. Too bad the kid had such a problem keeping it together.

In terms of straight up numbers, it's harder to win the CFB championship than men's basketball. Only 4 teams have a shot to win football. 64ish have a chance to win basketball. 

Edit: depends on your starting point. assuming the starting point is being a team in the playoff, it's easier to win football 1 in 4 chance versus 1 in 64ish for basketball.

I work for one of the large clothing retailers in town as a merchandise planner. My job: educated guessing. 

Pretty good gig. Studied marketing and logistics at OSU but developed a talent for being a decent guesser. 

My my advice to you undergrads who aren't sure what you'd like to do: develop a talent/above average capability in MS Excel.

I will say this about Lou holtz... He was the keynote speaker for a charity breakfast I attended a handful of years ago. Small group, maybe 30 or 40 in the room. He was engaging and never missed a punchline. The best part of the morning was that he stuck around and spoke with every single person in the room for well over the scheduled time of the event. He could've bounced when his time was up but he stuck around telling great stories about OSU. That man has some love for the program and I'm glad to have him as an ally in the national media.

He French-fried when he should've pizza'd.

To be perfectly honest, I think this is a great idea. Further, I think the shaming should be made as public as possible by the staff to deter future issues. A weekly piece about who was suspended, for what and for how long could be viewed as both educational and entertaining.

Im not a very active poster but I am a very active reader of this sites content. The staff provides content that is miles better than any other OSU blog right now. It gets tough to motivate myself to join a discussion when 50% of the people are just whining and have nothing constructive to offer. 

I feel better.

It's great if we can get some help from other teams losing but the Buckeyes control their own destiny - that starts today. Win out and they're in good shape at the end of the season. That continues with beating Rutgers today. Go Bucks!

If people played monopoly the right way it wouldn't drag on forever. The big reason that the game takes forever is, according to Harbo: "Whenever you land on an unowned property you may buy that property from the Bank at its printed price. You receive the Title Deed card showing ownership; place it face up in front of you. If you do not wish to buy the property, the Banker sells it at auction to the highest bidder."

Not that this would make the game a blast, but it might be a little better.
