"Lee Barfknecht" is an all-timer for sportswriter names.

A friend of mine is an accomplished Ohio high school football coach. He advises parents to not have their kids play football until about seventh grade. He recommends soccer instead. Reason 1: the poor coaching at the youth football level. Reason 2: he thinks soccer is very good for developing flexibility, endurance, footwork, balance, coordination, etc.

Anyone else ever notice the ref on the far sidelines during this play? When he hits the Bama 40-yard-line, the dude is hauling ass. Running with his head turned to watch the play, he stays nearly stride for stride with #4 from Bama. And Zeke beats the zebra by only about 10 yards.

In recent years I've stayed at the Hyatt Place on Tuttle Road in Dublin. It's not close to campus, but it's a nice place and they do not increase their prices for football weekends. 

I used to stay at the Red Roof on Olentangy. Great location but the rates on football weekends are absurd, especially for such a bad hotel.

Wow, that documentary is intense...random thoughts on the documentary: I was 7 years old at the time and I remember hearing about Kent State, and I definitely remember Neil Young's song...It's very interesting to hear the perspectives of people who lived through it...the demonstration on Wall Street -- the construction workers fighting the protestors is mind-blowing...I'd never heard about Nixon walking out of the White House in the middle of the night to speak to protestors at the Lincoln Memorial...I had a teacher in high school who was a student at the University of Iowa in 1970; he said there was rioting, but then administrators closed the school for the semester and everyone went home...I had a math teacher in junior high who demonstrated at Kent State; he was a tremendous math teacher; he still had long hair and a beard, wore a leather jacket with fringe, bell bottoms, but he never offered any opinions to us on what happened at Kent.

Micah is from my alma mater, and he might be the first scholarship basketball player that Mentor has had at OSU. Don Jantonio, in the 1990s, originally was a walk-on and he might have earned a scholarship later on.

It looks like the Sea Captain in the Sizzler video is seconds away from committing a felony.
