Class of '86. Met Woody on campus and for 2 minutes he focused 100% on my academic experience in a sincere and friendly manner. When he dotted the "i" for Script Ohio I cried like a baby. Live in the Dallas area and my wife is amazed at all of the fans and alumni present wherever we go.

MSU May finish below Rutgers this year.  Something is wrong there and asking a young head coach to fix this with a weak athletic department will be long odds.  Indiana, Maryland and Rutgers appear on paper at least to be better.  Tough gig for a new coach.

Coincidentally, my user name is the phrase that local people would reply if I said something stupid or broke wind in a bad way "Mercy, Tex".

A long time ago I was one of several project managers on huge bank reorganization.  One of the departments was in West Virginia and the clerk was excited that she was invited to dinner with the governor of West Virginia for a charity honor.  Before I could say congratulations I heard myself say "do you have to bring your own possum?".  It was an uncalled for smart ass remark.  It turned out her job six months later was one of those lost in the restructuring and I busted my butt to find her a job eventually in Columbus.  That callous remark still bothers me today and taught me to consider my audience before speaking.

I once thought I had a land line with AT&T but it is VOIP.  I thought it was a good deal at $20 a month with unlimited hours of talking with my parents in their 80s (texting, social media have failed multiple times).  I sometimes call them with a headset while watching OSU basketball or football.  I need to switch.  Thanks LBG.

Are there any assistant coaches make more than Locksley in the B1G?  I would not have guessed that Fitz was the next to lowest salary in the B1G.

Comment 01 Feb 2020

This year's Buckeyes are fragile and not well suited for B1G play.  Interior size and skill is lacking since injuries and illness hit this team.  Perimeter shooting is not good enough to make teams pay for doubling down low.  It is going to be a long year of decline unless this team starts to believe in themselves.  I hope DJ gets the treatment he needs and this team gets some confidence to play with joy and without fear.

French Club trip to Montreal during my freshman year in high school. In Canada shortly after the ice age you only had to be 14 to watch an R rated movie without a guardian.  Sounds cool until the movie title: Saturday Night Fever.
