If I'm a UT student and live in Austin, this means I should run down to the store, dye a Santa costume burnt orange, and then have Bevo chase me around on live TV for 5 hours. Why not?
I have an uncle who is a huge Georgia Tech fan, and very enlightened compared to most of the "South will rise again" southerners. However, he still refers to the Civil War as "The War of Northern Aggression".
And the main reason I'm sad he probably won't be a Buckeye? It's simply because of all the lame Star Trek jokes I'll not be able to post about him, and the other ones the commentariat at 11W won't post.
Hopefully he doesn't have any Tribble in school. His roommates might object. I also foresee whatever school he ends up at having to post a forum topic on the Trekker club's website stating that "Giving Tribbles to Kirk is an NCAA violation, Giving Bat'leth's to Kirk is an NCAA violation, Giving Hamlet in Klingon to Kirk is an NCAA violation." (and yes, Hamlet in Klingon is a real thing http://www.amazon.com/The-Klingon-Hamlet-William-Shakespeare/dp/0671035789)
DJ, did you drive to Boone through WV? If so, why? It should be shorter to take either 23 directly down until it becomes I-26 to I 40 to Boone, or route through Cincy, Kentucky, and Tennessee (It looks a lot longer, but trust me, 8-9 hrs either way).
That cat probably hates Bo with a passion now. It sees him, and scurries for under the bed, thinking, "Oh no you are not taking me anywhere ever again!"
And then we'd have to invent Necromancy to bring back Sherman and Grant from the dead, and March to the SEC offices.
A friend and I were discussing exactly that during the B1G Champ. game. I didn't see Winfield in college (too young, wasn't yet a Buckeye fan), but I remember him dismantling run games of opposing teams in the NFL.
Don't wear it in Atlanta, they teach that history about five times K-12. My cousin was getting mad about learning it over and over by the time he graduated high school.
Can you imagine if they both ended up as bookends on a team in the NFL? Like Dad and Uncle Eric before them? That'd be one heck of a pass rush.
I can see Saban as Tarleton comparison. It just works.
My guess is that the state of Hawaii, and the school, don't want to help with matching some sort of funds for athletic programs (for instance, to repair the stadium, or build a new one). That could certainly result in some major conflict, and depending on who is involved, it could also be an issue that he is not Hawaiian.
If Cincy were to keep Tuberville, I think they'd compete for the Big XII title year in year out. The positive side of this is hopefully it could keep some of the Cincy Catholic school kids in Ohio, instead of Notre Dame or other points south.
I'd wager he called his agent when this happened, and his contract has a rider that says if he's in any kind of possible injury situation, he must go the ER and get checked out, so his agent told him, and they took him to the ER. That's the best case scenario.
I'm way more concerned on when the base layer will be released. That is the bar none coolest Ohio State shirt I've ever seen. MUST HAVE IT!
It says on the site: "The Ohio State University Buckeyes will wear their traditional Mach Speed uniform designs both home and away" I don't know if that means it's going to be an all color game (I would doubt it with the Tide or FSU, too much clash of colors, but if Ohio St and Oregon advance it could happen).
Harooooo... And don't forget the disembodied head of Richard Nixon, or little green men from outer space.
I don't want trouble for the program, but I would love to be "interrogated" by one of these NCAA compliance officers. It would completely be, "Do you have the legal authority to detain me? Am I being denied Counsel? Are you going to sue me for breach of verbal or implied contract? Do you understand that if you cannot prove these charges in a court of law, you will be getting sued for libel, personally?"
Flashes of Winfield on those tackles of Gordon. Man, he is gonna be good for the next three years.
The only problem with a Stephen Hawking hire; he might decide to Schroedinger Faux Pelini, and then we'll never know if he's alive or dead.
11W needs to have a book of Ra
mzy colu mns. Seriously one of the best sportswriters on the planet.

The Catch by Gonzo, and the 1998 game. My best friend and I were in Scouts and out camping that weekend, and his dad had the game on radio (we were at Deer Creek state park, miserable weather), and I hated Lloyd Carr with a passion. Now you might ask how could anyone hate Lloyd Carr. Well, my 6th grade teacher, Mr. Kelly, bet the now Mrs. Kelly, another 6th grade teacher, that OSU would beat TSUN in 1997, and that the loser would have to purchase and display in their classroom, a cardboard cut out of the opposing team's coach. I spent from late November 1997 to June of 1998 tripping over Lloyd Carr consistently in front of the whole class, and I learned to hate TSUN.
Maybe we can convince Delany to allow more late kickoffs in November so that the roads can be cleared in the case of inclement weather.
