-I had more michigan apparel growing up than ohio state apparel. I went to the same school as Tim Williams (the guy who punted to Desmond Howard on the heisman pose play) and thought he was a douche, so I was a pseudo-michigan fan. Not really, I was just a natural contrarian.

-I wasn't a huge OSU fb fan until I lived with two friends who were fanatics. Now I'm insufferable.

-I hate the Lexington, Ky school way worse than michigan.

-I liked the addition of Maryland. Purely selfish, because I'm now a train ride away from seeing a game.

-I like the hive much better than quick cals

This isn't homer talk, but being of above average intelligence on the subject of fitness and performance, Marotti is one of the best, if not the best in the business. If you read who holds him in high regards, it's a who's who of strength coaches.

Cramps happen. While they have regimented diets and schedules, they're still college kids. I'm sure a gas station burrito, a slice of pizza, and a soda or two makes their way into their diets. Nerves play a part too. We learned after the fact that Jordan Hall didn't get adequate rest the night before the game.

My point is, unless you lock these kids in a box, you are not going to be able to monitor every decision. What you can do is educate them, prepare them,  and inspire them. Blaming a strength coach, who's one of the best in the country, for not hooking up the IV and personally watching the bag empty, is a little goofy.

Marine bases have full tackle leagues. I played in one two years ago. Good times. 

 

I just realized my dream of being a 33 year old starting safety for the buckeyes is over. Thanks NCAA!

As a parent of a child who needs the preferred pass at Disney, that makes me so unbelievably angry. If I had a rubber hose...

Isaiah Thomas said something similar about Larry Bird. He sounded like an idiot too.

My favorite fact about Jerry Lucas, in addition to assisting me in memorizing all the state capitals in 4th grade, is that he told Adolph Rupp to stick it during the recruiting process.

Oh penn state fans. If butthurt was a drug, John Travolta would be working overtime shoving needles into your chests.

Or he could be from the Tyrone Willingham school of recruiting. Notre Dame recruits itself.

I once was in the notre dame camp. However, a domer friend has made that impossible. He will gladly crucify terrelle Pryor and The Vest for trinkets for tats, but give Brian Kelly a pass for death and rape. Notre Dame does things "the right way". I hope bama blows their doors off 49-7.

Walt wouldn't drive the worst car ever. The list has to be a joke.
