Almost a perfect heartbreaking list. 

One that still gets me was Michigan's 31–23 upset in 1995 when Tim Biakabutuka amassed an unbelievable 313 yards rushing. Buckeyes were ranked No. 2 and led by eventual Heisman Trophy winner Eddie George and future NFL stars Orlando Pace, Terry Glenn, Mike Vrabel, Shawn Springs, and Rickey Dudley.

Both Bob Odenkirk and Michael McKean were basically comedians as was Bryan Cranston of “Breaking Bad”.

Vince Gilligan has said that he likes using comedians in drama because he feels that if you do comedy well, you basically are able to excel at anything in acting.

Solid episode even though it was devoted solely to the case against Jimmy (no Mike or Gus).

Next week we hear the name "Saul Goodman", so things are moving along.

I have watched all of Breaking Bad completely through 3 times and will undoubtedly watch a 4th. Best thing that was ever on television, period! Sad when the series ended but now have another chance to watch some of the characters  with more great writing and acting. 

Real curious as to what Jimmy and Kim have up their sleeves for ole Chuck. Why would Jimmy say to Mike that the picture of a gas lantern sitting on a copy of the New York Times "tells the whole story". Perhaps to threaten Chuck with having him declared incompetent and puttting him in a facility with electricity?

Matta is the seventh (7th) highest paid coach in college basketball.

Last ten years in Tournaments:

2007-2008 – NIT - Won                               

2008-2009 – NCAA  - out first round           

2009-2010 – NCAA – out in sweet 16

2010-2011 – NCAA – out in sweet 16

2011-2012 – NCAA – out in final four

2012-2013 – NCAA – out in elite eight

2013-2014 – NCAA – out in first round

2014-2015 – NCAA – out in second round

2015-2016 – NIT – out in second round

2016-2017 – NONE

You see a pattern? Salary commensurate with performance?

Nice work Gene, Matta hasn't been able to coach "reach" any of his players/teams in years, but gets rewarded with another chance to show his mediocrity. It ought to tell you something when the halftime announcer at the Rutgers game said that the Buckeyes on the bench acted with no encouragement or emotion, almost like they didn't care.

EDIT: LOL another B1G announcer that interviewed a Rutgers player after the game asked him "was there a point in the game when you sensed that Ohio State did not want to be here?".

Buckeyes may have one really good game in B1G Tourney but the next one will make you wonder what game they think they are playing.

On to the NIT where you will see brain farts, discombobulation and an early exit provided by a team that wants it more.
