Graduated from OSU in '97 in Metallurgical Engineering. I almost went to Michigan, but my dad told me I'd have to change my last name. He was the smartest man who ever lived.

Thank you.  Horseshit indeed. I’ve always found that saying insulting. Try telling that kind of crap to teaching musicians, professors, and, oh yeah, teachers.  When it comes to coaching, well, sure, no one’s going to expect Ryan Day to step on the field and execute like Justin Fields or expect an MLB manager to step up on the mound and throw 90.

You are right on the money.  Seeing Clearwater Beach packed with spring breakers last week was sickening, and the fact that it took negative media coverage to get Clearwater officials to close the beach is even worse.  If we don't suck it up for a short period RIGHT NOW, "normal" may not happen for over a year.

...AND I QUOTE:  “What the hell are the linebackers doing?!?!?!?!  C’mon, Cooper, FIX IT!!!!”

- My dad, watching the ‘95 game and seeing trap, after trap, after trap go for big yards, while wondering why OSU’s coaches never made a defensive adjustment.

I do too.  I certainly hope (and trust) that those students who are ready to graduate won’t get sidetracked.  It wasn’t nearly the same level of chaos as today, but a lot of people said the same about my Spring ‘97 graduating class, when it rained so hard that they told us the ceremony was canceled just after our guest speaker had started and that we could pick up our diplomas later at French Fieldhouse.  I got so many, “Sorry you didn’t get to walk,” and “Ugh, you missed something so special!,” and even had a family member ask if it ruined my OSU experience.  All of those people were well-meaning in their own little ways, but they were also wrong.  What I remember about not having a ceremony is that it was just one day in an amazing five-year journey.  The journey is what I’ve always embraced, not the ceremony celebrating the arrival.  I hope the seniors get the same level of satisfaction from their leather-bound parchment that I still do.

I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.  The only thing worse from the Basketball Gods would be Carton to Kansas.  I used to really admire that program, but Bill Self’s Adidas $henanigan$ coupled with KU’s refusal to sanction him ruined that.

That would be really interesting, to be honest.  The only hard part would be laying out the bracket and I’m sure Lunardi would love to do it, and probably already has.  Hell, the computers could play out the remaining conference tournaments and then hand those results to Lunardi, just to keep it as objective as possible.  If I had the model, it might make for a fun weekend, although my wife would disagree.
