We didn't do anything fun, but looking back on it twenty years later I really wished we had. Any girl who would go out with someone they didn't know probably does not have very high standards.

When I was at Ohio State living on Norwich I got a wrong number but I was trying to be helpful and scored a date. She was cute but in a white trash sort of way. Her name was Dana. I think she may have been a prostitute. I also don't think her name was really Dana.

I remember in my day this happened to David Boston. He was never suspended but it was pretty well known throughout campus as being an issue. His NFL career washed out due to problems with marijuana and cocaine. Hopefully Hill learns from his mistakes and comes out better.

Cavs should wait a couple of weeks. I am ok being patient. The team has all the cards here. We have the best player in the world and he will be in his I don't give a shit mode. I just wish I didn't spend $500 on a personalized autographed photo of my son with Kyrie at his youth basketball camp.

This is a legal issue, so it would be helpful to have a real lawyer weigh in, but the standard for suspending a player for personal conduct is a preponderance of evidence based on what the players and owners negotiated in the collective bargaining agreement. This I different from a prosecutor looking at a case and saying there is a good chance that I can get a conviction based on evidence that would convince a jury. As an employer, we have fired and punished employees based on suspicion even though we might not have enough evidence to prove a crime. The fact that he has never been arrested or charged is one of many factors to consider.

As an aside, between Jim Jackson, Jamaal brown, Mark Baker, Treg Lee, Perry Carter, and cj2k, they would totally beat the current buckeye team. And I know they are all over 45.

It's not a golden bear, it's a grizzly bear that was shot by Jimmy Crum, a long time local NBC sportscaster.

I took the SAT in UA High School when I was a high school junior and walking in and seeing the stuffed Golden Bear in the lobby and being a Nicklaus mega-fan, it was like walking into some Grand Temple.  

I am from UA, which means I am kind of an asshole. It's in our blood.
