Mom to Tim. Buckeye born and bred, Buckeye till I'm dead. That pretty much covers it.

I've had to go to court a number of times and I marvel at how people show up. At family court I saw a woman with her hair in curlers and wearing slippers. Another time a kid had to go through the metal detectors multiple times because he had so much jewelry on. I always wear a suit and more than once someone has asked if I'm an attorney. I can't help but think it has worked in my favor (because it has).

This happened in 1974 when I was 20. it is the reason I don't live in Cols. At that time the CPD didn't even have a Sex Crimes Unit. I was interviewed by 2 uniform cops in front of my mother. That would never happen today. I went to Mr. Carmel W. where I sat alone in an exam room for over 2 hours waiting for a Dr. to do the rape kit. (google it and ask yourself in anyone would go through that having made  up the story) and then sent home. The CPD called me about 9 mos. later and asked to come to the station to look at a photo lineup. I couldn't identify anyone because he had a scarf covering his face. It ended there. Around 1994 I called CPD and ask for a copy of the police report. I was told they didn't have it because they had destroyed the records from that time frame. So, I have no way of knowing if he was ever arrested or prosecuted. Oh, I forgot a couple of things: two weeks later I received a bill from Mt. Carmel and had a friends husband come up to me at a BBQ and asked if I enjoyed it.

As a rape survivor, I can tell you that in that situation, you will do or say anything to make it stop. I had a Phillips head screw driver pressed against my neck and was handcuffed. I was told do as I say and i won't kill you. Being raped seemed like a much better deal than having a screw driver jammed in my carotid artery and bleeding to death.

A few things:

1. God damn, Mo was a beast

2. Teddy G could fly

3. Troy Smith is by far, the best Heisman QB 

4. Terrelle Pryor drove me crazy sometimes, but he was a blast to watch

5. Will I ever watch the last drive of the '02 NCG without butterflies in my stomach?

6. Jim Tressel will always be that boyfriend you had to breakup with but will love and miss forever.

7. Buckeye fans were blessed to have had him as long as we did

My son was eight and asked which team we were rooting for, the white guys or the green guys? He didn't make it past regulation, but when he woke up the next day his first question was "did the white guys win mommy?"

Where did you go? I've been going to the shore my whole life (Stone Harbor, Long Beach Island, Avalon) and have never seen sewer pipes going into the water (a major EPA violation in a highly regulated state). The beaches here are clean and gorgeous. I am going to call BS on your claim.

The easiest solution is to adopt the Ivy League model: No athletic scholarships, everyone accepted by the same academic standards and all aid be need based. If the NBA and NFL cannot get conditioned experienced players on the schools dime, they will be forced to form farm leagues like the MLB. The NBA created the 1 year out rule without consulting the NCAA, conference commissioners, coaches or AD's. It benefits only them. Force them to develop players on their dime. This will never happen, but I'm quite confident that no Ivy League school is implicated in the FBI investigation.
