Maybe?  It is a really cool place - it is a training site for the US Olympic teams.  If I recall correctly, they had a 7'+ (7'7" maybe?) center that was training there last year.  I used their indoor facilities for winter workouts for a baseball team I coached.  Also, you can grab some local wine in Geneva, there are a dozen or so winneries in close proximity to SPIRE.

Interview started off rehashing the timeline of his reports and the responses from OSU and Urban last week.  McMurphy said he did not have any proof that Urban knew of the 2015 incident.  Then went into the entire circumstantial evidence and that "everyone in the building at OSU knew" including coaches and coaches wives.  Also included the potential Title IX issues if anyone on the staff knew.  He also said that he has further information that he won't disclose that would make Z. Smith and OSU look even worse.  Concluded with a statement that his goal of the report was to present facts/info to let people make their own opinion on what actually happened and who knew.  He was asked directly if Urban should be fired.... His response was he thinks Urban will be fired and could potentially be a "technicality" that OSU will find to fire him and then reiterated that there was no evidence that he had that proves that Urban knew of the 2015 incident.  He thought OSU will not respond or have any comments until a decision has been made to either move on from Urban or move forward with him.  I missed a piece of the interview (darn work) but this is everything that I was able to jot down.

Oklahoma is up 3 with 8 minutes in the 1st half on Rhode Island.  Tennesee and Wright State just tipped.  As for my work, well that has come to a screeching halt.

Tomasello with a pin in his opening match.  How in the hell do you work, watch the start of hoops and wrestling all at the same time?  I don't have enough portable devices for all of this.......

Met him while he was still at OSU at Eddie's #27.  He stopped by our table after my youngest, who was 3 at the time, walked past his table and said "My daddy knows who you are - JOHN SIMON!".  He didn't need to do it, but he stopped at our table on his way out and took pictures with my boys and talked to them for 10 minutes as they asked him all sorts of random questions about football, Tressel, school, more football, more Tressel, and even his tattoos.  He's been a family favorite ever since.  Happy for him and his family!

Played 4 years at Marion Harding (graduated in 1992).  Went on to play 4 years at Hiram College where we played in NCAA tournament in 1995 - losing in the round of 16 to the eventual NC (Ohio Wesleyan) after beating Hope College in the opening round.  High School years were good - college years were entirely different.  We never lost more than 5 games in a season and tied or won for the OAC regular season or tournament title each year.  I played in the central midfield with a 2X All-American behind me.  Easily the best player I ever played with.

Born and raised in Marion - family still lives there.  Hate to see the crap going on there - never would have imagined in 1992 that the drug problem would get that bad.   Still visit a couple of times a year - the best part of Marion I see is the Now leaving Marion sign - sad to say but the truth.
