Pretty clever strategy; suspend him during March Madness to keep him off TV, so as not to face any embarrassing questions.  Once the tourney's over and the national attention moves on, back to busine$$ as usual.

I've also been up in that roof and have marveled at the view from the towers.  I felt an almost physical blow when I saw the first reports and pictures of the fire, and I could hardly bring myself to look at the news as the day progressed.  Today's pix bring a little relief that maybe it wasn't as catastrophic as feared yesterday, but I can't imagine that it will every be the same during the rest of my lifetime.

Into the belly of the beast!??  (For non-Seattle-ites, this is well known as the local scUM gamewatch venue.)

Good find though.  I couldn't find anyplace that opened before 11.

Riley might turn out to be all that, but there is also the Mark Helfrich example.  He inherited a loaded team, 'produced" a Heisman winner, and had his team playing for a Natty.  And then the wheels fell off. 

Riley appears to be recruiting at an elite level, so there's no reason to think OK is suddenly going to go off the rails.  I just think it is a bit premature to say that he is already an elite coach.

I liked him as a player as well.  IMO he was a bright spot on a team that didn't have many, and I looked forward to his continued development.  That being said, I'm not sure how I feel about a return to Cbus.  I tend to become enamored of the shiny new toys (Diallo) so I will leave it to the folks paid to make those decisions.

Up until Fields entered the picture and Tathan started tweeting (kids, just don't tweet) I don't recall that we had any occasion to dis the kid.  From everything that I recall reading, he did what was asked of him, ran the scout teams, etc.  It's too bad that he left the way that he did, but unless he starts flaming the Buckeyes, I'll wish him well.  Especially if he beats Clemson.

Here's another one; 39 years, and in Ohio no less.  Not as much background as the Carrillo story, but it sounds pretty similar.  I've never served on a jury, but stories like these sure make you think about the awesome responsibility of the job.
