Rest of the world calls it...

Brits coined the term "soccer."  They used "football" and "soccer" interchangeably for decades.  They abandoned the latter in a snobby attempt to distinguish themselves from arriviste Yanks only when the popularity of the sport skyrocketed in the U.S.

The rest of the world can call it whatever they want.  We play "soccer" (on a field, not a pitch).

Get universities (particularly public schools) out of the semi-pro sports entertainment industry.  Full stop.  That means no athletic scholarships.  Field teams exclusively of students who happen to be athletes.  The current system is unfixably corrupt.

Clark's a worthy contender for this year's Hart-Kalis award, but I predict someone more comically belligerent will come along before the recruiting cycle is done.

Flipping off 113,511  people in the Big House

Don't exaggerate.  He wasn't flipping off everyone, just the ones who deserved it.

Honestly, if the [Michigan] visit didn't go how it went today, I was probably going to end up at Michigan State.

Does it take a rocket scientist to figure this out?  Gibson was told he's our #1 QB target during the winter & spring, Wimbush pushed his decision date back 3 or 4 separate times during that time period. Spring game pasts and Gibson still hasn't made it up to Columbus, all of a sudden you hear Wimbush saying "Meyer told me I'm their #1 QB target."

305, love most of your posts, but I don't understand your certainty.  It's possible OSU told Wimbush to hold off.  It's possible Wimbush felt less certain over time about his interest in OSU, and just decided he preferred PSU.

(Waller said OSU told him he was their top QB target after Wimbush committed and Gibson appeared to be fading.  I don't recall Wimbush ever saying OSU named him #1, but maybe I missed that.)

Trending Not So Well...

Ohio State's campus hosted a Nike camp over the weekend, and the recruiting updates from Columbus weren't so good on the Michigan front. Damien Harris, in particular, came away singing the praises of OSU and Urban Meyer...  I've finally given in and flipped my Crystal Ball pick for Harris to Ohio State.

I have an award signed by Major Harry Beaver.

I see your major and raise you Dr. Harry Beaver, OB/GYN.

Edit:  Maybe it's the same guy.  I see the doctor trained at Letterman Army Med Ctr.

Knew a girl in college named Hardik.

I went to high school with a girl named Wang Bang.

Crazy speculation:  Maybe they did offer Waller, but asked him not to publicize it until/unless he accepts because it hurts their shot at Gibson to signal they regard him as replaceable.  OSU apparently will take only 1 more QB.  Worst case scenario would be to alienate Gibson by offering "his" slot to another guy, who then turns it down, leaving you with neither.

Old and busted:  public non-committable offers
The new hotness:  secret committable offers

If someone had asked today, "what are you going to do tonight, SoB?," not in a billion years would I have guessed "google 'Taylor Lewans Mom.'"

I will bet dollars to doughnuts, that one of the cases Sokolow reviewed, was the Gibbons case.

Do you mean it was one of the"five cases all involving drunken hook-ups"?  As I understand it, the alleged victim claimed Gibbons used actual force, and she repeatedly said "no".  Sokolow is criticizing cases where universities determine that an assault occurred merely because the girl was drunk, but that doesn't seem to be what happened (or what was alleged) in this instance.
