Yes. "Obnoxious Alabama fan" is a shining exemplar of a pleonasm.

Still chuckling at "I honestly don't know much, if anything, about Michael Wiley since he is overshadowed by some legendary running backs in Buckeyes history."

A small sampling of Michael Wiley career factoids:

The first three times he touched the ball in a college game (against Rice University as a true freshman) he scored; on a 49 yard reverse and on TD receptions of 51 and 60 yards.

He played four seasons for the Buckeyes but was a starter for only two years (22 starts). Notwithstanding that handicap, he amassed 4,194 all purpose yards with 2,951 rushing yards. He had 10 100 yard rushing games.

As a passer he went 10 of 11 for 225 yards and 2 TDs.

He led off the scoring in the 1998 game against ttun (a real unicorn game for Coach Cooper, winning 31-16) with a 53 yard score early in the first quarter on a simple and perfectly blocked counter play.

I really enjoyed watching that man play ball. I guess he is that guy who gets forgotten, but not by those of us lucky enough to have seen him play.

Ah man. He was a genius. Some of the most haunting film scores ever. Still reveling in the score to The Mission, all these years later.

Gotta be Kirk Ferentz, the greatest coach in B1G history.

(Do I gotta put the sarcasm symbol at the end of that, or is it implied strongly enough as it stands?)

Comment 20 Jun 2020

Sheeeeeeit. I already tell folks I'm from Comeblowus.

Comment 13 Jun 2020

and they probably couldn't do the same in B1G land.

The United States Constitution prohibits the SEC from playing football north of the Mason-Dixon Line and west of the Pecos but does not concomitantly prohibit it from recruiting nationally.

Probably so Greta. But watch out for the double dippers. Those sonsabitches are still out there, and toothpick or not, they will dip, bite and dip again. 

Comment 08 Jun 2020

Corn dogs fall squarely into the "food on a stick" category. See, e.g. your kabobs, your satays, and candy apples. Some may argue that there is precedent for blurring the line of demarcation between the sandwich family and the food on a stick genre, by the well established practice of serving quartered club sandwiches with giant toothpicks jammed into the quartered sections.

Such people are cretinous barbarians at best & blathering buttnuggets at worst, and are to be avoided at all costs.

Welcome aboard Brohio. The Premium Lounge Bar & Grille is a mere three blocks away. Be a good lad & fetch me another Guinness. And while you are there, might as well pick me up another Pop-Tart sandwich. That's a good lad, now off with ya.

Request for leave denied.

The M.P.s have been dispatched.

Please be advised that the Provost Marshall has taken a personal interest in this case.

Comment 07 Jun 2020

Pffft. Amateur.

You buy Pop-Tarts and leave them in plain sight so you don't have to try and hide the Toaster Strudel.
