  • SPORTS MOMENT: 1998 UM/OSU. My first three years at OSU were marked by devastating losses to Michigan. 1998 we were riding high until the MSU game and expectations for the Game were at an all-time low. We won, I rushed the field and took home some turf, planted it and kept it alive for a few months, which is longer than most of my relationships at the time.

I still remember the 03 loss to TTUN.   I was at a friend's house on Norwich, and had just stepped outside fuming when I heard glass breaking and a very loud FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU followed by a TV being thrown out of one of the top windows of Riverwatch.  

Those guys were downright classy compared to this.  They at least appeared to have clothes on.

If a player chooses to communicate a message through a medium as temporary as eye black, who really gets worked up about this aside from the media who fabricates a controversy?  

Given that one needs a 300mm lens to even see it from the crowd, no one in the crowd will notice or care.  And if a technical director sees someone on preview 1 who wrote "white power" or something stupid on their eye black, guess what doesn't make it to live TV?  Or maybe it does and we all learn that this person is a jackhole and we move on.

I understand that a uniform implies homogeneity, but if Cam decided to - say -- get a tattoo saying "IRON HEAD" on his forearm, how is that really any different?

I would love to see Cardale at PGH, just so I could stop cringing when they put in Vick.

I think the data shows that students who live on campus perform better...  But I won't deny that it is a huge revenue stream for the University.
