I graduated from The Ohio State University in 2006. I have a txapela. That's about all I know right now. I will probably update this later.

  • SPORTS MOMENT: I was in Block O for my freshman year at The Ohio State University, which was the fabled 2002 season. It's tough to choose between being in the south end stands for Chris Gamble's pick-six against Penn State and being pepper sprayed after the season finale against That Team Up North.

God love Illinois' new athletic director for making power moves. Remember how we all collectively complain that Purdue free-rides on the conference's revenue while not putting in resources to improving the overall product? Can't say that about Illinois with its new AD. First: a Super Bowl head coach. Then: this hire. Illini fans should be pleased.

He was my GTA (solo instructor) for one of my classes (PS 245, I want to say? The years betray my memory). He held a review session at 4 Kegs. I would share an anecdote about what he told us about going there but I'll withhold it here. Wonderful graduate instructor.

Don't let the viral video belie that the dude knows his stuff. He's a point man for insight on all things Korean peninsula.

The petty, vindictive Ohio State fan in me is happy that Hart will go down in history as a core participant in the first Michigan senior class to finish winless against Ohio State. He was also the biggest talker of the group.

That aside, Hart's rise through the coaching ranks is pretty cool to see. He had a short-lived pro career but got out with a few bright moments (hell, I'd brag about getting two carries in a Super Bowl, even if it was a loss). Got started at an absolute cellar-dweller in Eastern Michigan as offensive quality control. Worked his way up from there. From there to Western Michigan, then Syracuse, now Indiana.

It's kind of a cool story. I wish him well as Ohio State bludgeons Indiana by six touchdowns.

Alabama fans think they're getting Chip Kelly, but Alabama fans think they're getting everyone all the time. I can't imagine that pairing of Kelly and Saban would work too well.
