  • SPORTS MOMENT: I'm a highschool senior visiting a friend at OSU who just started his freshman year. I go to the OSU - Iowa game, when Iowa was #1. We're in the south stands. Byars, Carter, Pepper Johnson, Spielman. Rained quite a bit. Spielman gets a 4th qtr interception. We run down onto the field afterwards, patting the football players on their shoulderpadst. Goalpost comes down right on top of us. I actually have a hand on the goalpost as we carry it out of the stadium and down to Papa Joes. (I had no clue where I was at the time). I knew where I would spend the next 4 years of my life after that night.

Plastic strap? Good flip flop straps are made of leather. I've had mine for 7 years. They even have a very convenient bottle opener built into the bottom of them! Now that I'm a stay at home dad, I haven't worn a pair of shoes since March. Last year I held out until around Thanksgiving. But I usually don't wear any shoes. You can do anything barefoot that you can with shoes - workout, mow/edge the yard, run, volleyball 2-3x/wk, chores, etc... its much better exercise for your ankles, as it develops increased stability and proprioception. Shoes suck!

On the other side of the coin, there's a witness that said Zeke didn't throw the punch. 

Here's the transcript/quote from the eyewitness from ProFootballTalk:

“It didn’t go down like that,” Michael Huffman said regarding the contention that Elliott broke the DJ’s nose. “Everybody is saying that, but he didn’t throw the punch. . . . Zeke was just standing there arms folded chilling, feeling the crowd. Then I seen [the] DJ getting loud toward the vicinity of Zeke and then I see an overhand right come over the back of Zeke shoulder that landed square in [the DJ’s] face and he went to sleep. He didn’t even see it. Then the crowd circled and dispersed. I’m surprised a whole video hasn’t been released yet.”

Braxton chucking up the prayer to Devin Smith to win that game

That throw wasn't a prayer.  Devin was wide open in the endzone.  I was in lower C deck right behind Smith.  It seemed like that throw took an absolute eternity to get there.  BTW, my brother flew in from Denver for that game (his first ever OSU game).  It was Halloween, and it was pandemonium and chaos in all the bars afterwards.  He still talks about it being one of the best nights of his life.

Back in the mid 80's in highschool, we'd go out to the bars on Brown Street.  I'd get in just by showing them my Kings Island ID - bouncers could care less.  But they would get raided by the cops at least twice a week.  Always had an exit strategy so as not to get busted for underage - after 11:00, stay close to the doors, and sneak out behind them, after they all came in.

That's awesome, Wibuck!  I've been to IU, Wisky, NW, Illinois, Purdue, Sparty, and Penn State.  Need to head west and see Iowa and Nebraska.  We also try to see the big OOC opponent, and make a vacation out of it - we went to Oklahoma last year (not much to do there!), and also went to the Cal (backcountried Yosemite and saw a Giants game) and Washington games(visited Seattle, hiked and climbed Mt Saint Helens and Mt Rainier).  Didn't get a chance to got to the USC or Texas game.  Away trips are awesome!  But I will never set foot in scUM's stadium.  Gotta draw the line somewhere.

Just got back home in Cincinnati. I agree, Trav. BYU looked fantastic. Will probably go 5 sets tomorrow. Besides Szersen, our serving sucked (Hawaii's was even suckier). And apparently there are no bad sets in college volleyball. Anyway, it's too bad school is out, or we would definitely have a couple more thousand in attendance.
