Well, someone broke into my house today. I've been here less than a month. It's not the stuff missing that I fear (though it's hard to replace most of it). It's the fact that they picked up a knife of ours and carried it throughout the house - just in case. 

Society, man.

Not sure about the trademark, but he definitely knows about it. I met him at Buckeye Corner before the VT game last year. He was promoting these shirts to raise money for a charity.

It's a damn good shirt. I wear this in Boulder and Denver and people stop me for photos like I'm famous. 

My favorite is still the Homage 'Script Ohio' for obvious reasons.

I'm just reading one of these features for the first time, so forgive me if this has been covered Matt, but why aren't there points awarded for the Lombardi/Bednarik/Ray Guy type awards but there are points for the Heisman?

Also, that's not the only wood Hawk has laid on a Quinn.

I think the whole board has been calling for this for a long time now!

Congrats, boys!

VT plans are hectic: I close on my new house 8/31, head to Chicago for work 9/3, stay the weekend in Chicago for a good friend's wedding, then get back to Denver the night of 9/6. Work on the house all day 9/7 before showering and heading to a Buckeye alumni bar because watching big games with Buckeyes is the only way to do it. 

We're hosting a housewarming/birthday party centered around the Penn State game.

One thing that's not widely advertised: one needs to take this every day, making the monthly cost $400 for one extra satisfying occasion. Plus, it works to actually change brain chemistry (vs the temporary impact of Cialis or Viagra). As my wife said, "No thanks."

I tried to buy online just after 10 AM ET but was relegated to "waiting in line" while others checked out by 10:03. The window stayed open for a little over an hour before I got the "sorry, sold out" notification.

I never thought I could be so frustrated by a pair of shoes.

I loved Lauren Hill's story and would've been happy to see her life recognized, but I'm not mad at recognition of Caitlyn Jenner, either. Both are deserving in different ways for different types of courage. The insensitive comments on here are proof enough of the courage it took for Jenner to share her story and live her life openly.

The one unsettling thing to me is the timing of the ESPYs announcement - it happened within hours of the Vanity Fair cover release. It reeks of a larger PR machine.

Stew is a lot like your friend; head drum major, led Jack Nicklaus onto the field for his i-dot, won Most Inspirational Bandperson, and recently sold his drum major memorabilia to raise money to offset his mother's medical bills after she survived cancer.

I'm not saying he didn't do it. If he did, I hope he gets everything he has coming to him. It's just hard to imagine this is all true.

I do know Stew from my years in band and this is a huge shock. We're not close now, but back then he was an amazing ambassador for OSU. He gave you the gut feeling of "there's a great guy and future leader." Scrolling Facebook this morning, the TBDBITL reaction is largely shock. Last guy you'd expect to see in the news for this.
