BTN had a great profile piece on Raymont Harris aka "The Quiet Storm". I guess he didn't start until his senior season. Pretty tough to break into the starting tailback role when your predecessor is Robert Smith and your successor is Eddie George. He thought about transferring but decided to stay. I'd love to see Curtis have a similar break-out in his farewell tour.
T.A.M.I. show attendee's must have thought he was from another planet or from the future.
Looks to me like they gave the "Student-Athlete" block the equivalent of non-voting stock.
Imagine I pasted the best slow-clap gif ever, right here.
Awesome right-up GFL. 11W should hire you for their next opening for writer.
I think Dave Brandon should take Marketing 101 from Stringer Bell, with emphasis on how to market an inferior product.

I'm not sure, but I believe Mortadella means "Death, by Deli".
Our rivals are (in order)…MSU, Wisconsin, then ttun. Profound fact.
My list of best sentences is way better than your list of best sentences.
I've found that "truth" is not a rifle-shot, but rather a shotgun spread. I agree that the truth in "the decision 2.0" has an aspect of revenue maximization. I'm sure there is an aspect of it related to home-coming. For me, it also has a much-larger aspect of him wanting his ego stoked by all the attention. It also gives him power in the organization. Hire this coach or I'll leave. Fire this coach, or I'll leave. Acquire this player, or I'll leave. Um, Lebron just a quick question, how much of your salary is for Lebron-the-player, vs. Lebron-the-GM?
I guess I can't see a way to forgiving him for having a coach and a GM fired from an organization, then quitting that same organization. Way to ruin a couple peoples lives so you can have your big moment on ESPN.
btw, not my down vote on the "oh hell no" guy above.
I don't buy what Lebron has said about home-coming. I think he figures Miami is done-for, and Cleveland was his best shot for more championships. The combination of the young talent that Cleveland has, the cap room to acquire more talent, and most importantly to the Whore from Akron, a nice short contract so he can hold everybody hostage next year about his free agency. It is the singular recurring theme, from where would he go to high school, to The Decision, and again most recently with Miami. He's got Brett Favre syndrome and we're all suffering. Otherwise, nice article.
Welcome Patrick. Congratulations on an exciting early career assignment. Journalism isn't dead, but these are certainly interesting times. That, and this...
Work your ass off. If the person next to you is working harder, they will make it and you wont.
Wright Thompson sounds a little bit like Woody with that quote.
There is some juice in that boat.
Thad doesn't rebuild, he reloads.
Use caution with the free services. Last year I got a virus on my work computer because I stoopidly clicked a link to watch a Buckeye game. Somebody had posted a comment that they were watching the game over the internet, I click the link and next thing you know I had malware loaded on my work computer.
It's the only way to fly, ha ha ha.
Rutgers. Welcome to the B1G FNG.
Oh no! 11W you Bielma-ed all over yourself!

Like the name of your database and/or file server.
Need to find a space for Archie. Could cut like a waterbug and had deceptive power and speed.
Solution...consider the walk from a legal parking spot part of your fitness training. We're perception flexibility training, and you're drinking water!!!
Quick! Somebody google "Andy Casting Couch" and report back what you see.
Congrats! Don't forget to play dumb at your inaugural press conference.
I prefer #1. I like the shield with 125 in the front-middle. I'd like to see 11W dry goods with some improved shirts (and 3XL as a size option).
Somebody needs to photoshop cHokes face on this pronto.
I agree with both of you! We're lucky to have Matta, and we should expect it because as an institution, we're a magnificent bastard.
I was at the Rose Bowl. Most exciting game I ever attended. I would say watched except for the 2002 Fiesta Bowl. Quite a diamond in the rough discovered by Cooper. I guess he came from that area so he must have known about Germaine from before, or maybe a local connection.
Watching the 77 Oklahoma game. Kind of amazing to see the different in production. Graphics are laughable. Miss KJ though. In the first 20 minutes, they break away about 10 times to show cheerleaders.
Great analysis and write-up Kyle. This is a difficult topic for all. Obviously a lot of passion and opinions about whether we should run Brax or Hyde. Maybe a little lost in the shuffle is the third way. Holy Buckeye! We could have passed. What I'm really trying to say is that the Spartan defense could over-load the run because by the end of last season, defenses were able to overload the run defense because we didn't make them defend the deep pass. Wasn't Braxton's arm injured?
I think I'm at the accept stage of grief. I accept that Coach made the best decision, and that it was simply the last move on the chess-board available. I really don't think running Hyde would have worked, as your analysis reveals.
