Knox dumping on the Texas schools is a great way to begin the week.

I just moved out to Norman last month and I can confirm the Sooner fans love Lincoln Riley with a passion. Knowing I’m a Buckeye, they want to know what they are getting with Grinch. My standard reply is 

Just posting and hoping my comment isn’t deleted.

Yea. Grinch is a weird story. Managed to segue himself to the " savior" of the Okie defense after one year of huge salary here, with no remarkable results to show from it. He does have the finacial acumen covered.

Makes you wonder if Schiano was perhaps limiting Grinch's performance as a coach somewhat?

They should want to know what they’re getting with you.

I’ve already told them they will like me better if they set their expectations of me very low.

"This just in.... Brett McMurphy to investigate NCAA violations at Ohio State after what appears to be a non-sanctioned practice between Ohio State coach Kevin Wilson and the tight end group. Video obtained and verified by McMurphy shows what appears to be a football thrown from a moving boat to a tight end whilst wake surfing. A source has revealed the video was leaked from a social media account going by the name of "definitely NOT Tom Herman". Stay tuned."

Takes guts for Coach Wilson to show the fall.  Only a man with real confidence would do that!  

As a pretty old guy, I always smirk when I see young'ns laugh at the tribulations of old folks.  Wonder if they will remember when they reach old age?  Let me warn them, there will be guilt.

From top to bottom, July 22 will not be remembered as OSUCoachKDub’s best day representing his generation in the Skully. But to be honest, I would’ve fallen on my face in both the 2010 test and wake boarding, too. #StayInYourLaneBro

Not sure why, but up to this point I hadn’t drawn the similarity between Riley and day. Makes a lot of sense honestly 

Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.

I think Day has already surpassed Riley in the "hire proven defensive coaches" department. This season will show whether that instinct is correct or not.

The story about the guy scaling a building to save his mother is a nice one. Not a lot to it, but still nice to read about a human going above and beyond to help another. 

Okudah certainky has a chance to be another in the long line of really good ones from OSU. And why not? If he can button down a side it is all good for him and everyone. Looking forward to seeing it.

That's the sort of thing a son should do for his mother.

Can't wait to see Okudah in action. I also think Arnette is going to show out this year. #DBU

A story of a "boy named Sue" is funny, but that is something else!

It’s a sad story, I’m choked up about it. With the proverbial lump in my throat, I can see how justice here was hard to swallow. I mean, it just took my breath away.

That story on the cost break down for the Moon landing was very cool.  It's amazing how many different companies played a part in that Program.

​How could we possibly know the cost of a fake moon if we have never even been on the moon, and therefore know no details about what the moon is like?

I've drawn the Lincoln Riley comparison several times with folks around here as they simultaneously vilify Urban and laugh at Ryan Day's hire. Day will be very successful from the start.

They vilify Urban because they fear him. As well they should.

I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure Arnette was the reason why Okudah had to “wait his turn” can we get Tyreke Johnson, Shaun Wade and Okudah on the field at once please. Sometimes the younger option is better! Definitely think Mitchell brings what we need for the linebackers. And we need to utilize the potential of the young guys on the D-line. Best players need to play. Unless they just haven’t earned it. But the product on the field hasn’t shown that it’s being earned I feel.

I've read about the relationship between Coaches Day and Riley before.  There certainly are some similarities.  Hey - if Coach Day has a first two years along those lines, I'll take it.  The Buckeyes back in the playoff and Justin Fields with the Heisman -

I understand the situations are very similar, and I appreciate Day trying to be as prepared as possible, but it still irritates the hell out of me that all 3 times OU got into the playoff, it was basically over Ohio State. I'll give them the '17 instance since they beat us head to head, but last season and especially the '15 season, the more talented team was left out. Given the fact OU has shit the bed all 3 times they've been there further supports my view.

It would seem, per that 2010 quiz, we need to get to know Matt Barnes a lot more. Time to put together a Barnes article 11W if you haven't done a thorough one already. That cat had me rolling, but at the same time, i don't think I would mess with him as a player.

Fort Lauderdale Judge Vegina “Gina” T. Hawkins was charged Thursday with “inappropriate conduct” under the Florida Code of Judicial Conduct and her behavior was deemed to have shown an “unfitness to serve,” and recommended her immediate suspension, according to a recommendation released by the investigative body of Florida’s Judicial Qualifications Commission, which oversees investigations of judges.

What caught my eye is the fact that Lincoln Riley is 24-4 in the last two seasons and made two CFP and Urban Meyer is 25-3 in those same two seasons and made none??
