I thought the Penn State scandal demonstrated the danger of trusting an individual(s) with too much power. More centralization of power is Delaney's solution? If the conference commissioner does gain more and more power incrementally, that just makes the theoretical possibility of a conference-wide scandal more and more likely as opposed to just a university-wide one.
I hope he at least spent that time on Call of Duty 4. If he spent it on some crap like Modern Warfare 2, the addiction is that much more troubling. I sure would like to play Black Ops with him. He's gotta be pretty good at it. I am seriously glad he has overcome the addiction though.
My favorite memory of a game that meant very little in the grand scheme thing of things might be the season opener against Northern Illinois in 2006.
My first season as a Buckeye fan was 1994, when I was 9 years old, so my fist 5 years of fanhood were blessed with amazingly talented and potent offenses that had no problem putting inferior opponents' throats under its foot. After 1998, those days seemed to disappear. Despite there being some great seasons between 1998 and 2006, the absence of a complete and dominant offense made football Saturdays much more stressful than what I was used to from childhood.
The 3 incredibly easy looking touchdown passes in the first quarter against Northern Illinois in 2006 signaled to me that for that season at least, the lackluster passing game, close games against unworthy competition, and slow starts to a season were gone. That season was so stress free. It was so wonderful until, well, nevermind. I think 2010 might be the first such season since 2006. I hope nothing spoils it this time.
Congratulations to Miami for winning 5 national championships between 1983 and 2001, but what have you done for me lately?
Oh no you DI'INT! LOL
