Born a Buckeye. My story reads much like Ms. Mona Lisa Vito's background as a mechanic: My father was a Buckeye. 2 aunts and 2 uncles on my father's side were Buckeyes. My Mother was a Buckeye. Her brother was a Buckeye. My cousin was a Buckeye. It goes on and on . . .


  • SPORTS MOMENT: Going to a Dallas Cowboy game as 12 year old and realizing that I was staying in the same hotel as the team. Met a ton of players including my all-time favorite, Tony Dorsett.
  • NFL TEAM: Dallas Cowboys

I was born into it.  My parents met on campus at a blood drive - their meeting was captured by the school newspaper.  They married on campus.  My family tree might as well be a Buckeye tree as I have at least 12 family members who are alums.  A couple of them were in the band, my father ran track for OSU.  P & G shipped my parents out to the NY metro area right after my dad got back from VIetnam.  My grandparents lived in Chillicothe, so there were frequent visits to OSU every time we went to visit family.  Too far to attend college back in the day, but being on the East coast, they were on pre-cable TV quite a bit.

It's a bit of humor rooted in the truth.  I recognize that certain jobs are stepping stones and that their existence is what feeds the level of sport that we as fans enjoy.   As much as I like seeing coaches staying at the Davids of the college sports scene and upending the bigger programs, I understand that not too many will stay if successful.  Coaches are always looking for the next challenge that pushes their limits.  Same with many different job fields.  11W has a smaller ceiling than some of the other sites/publications.  Appreciate when we get a good writer and hope he/she attracts quality replacements when they move on.  (And that wasn't me that DV'd you).

Boals did a nice job replacing Steve Pikiell at Stony Brook, not Stoney Brook.  He brought some good recruits to a University that is tough sell for athletes.  Stony Brook just accepted an invitation to the CBI this year - they play USF this week.  I was looking forward to next year, when his squad returns all but one.  Saw him in the stands when his son's team played my school.  Good luck to him - you can't get upset when his alma mater calls him home.

Here's the link for the Golden Eagles 2019 stats:

EDIT:  That's the women's stats  never mind.  I did get it off of the mens' site!  I'll have to read before I post a link next time - smh.

And they had the ratings to prove it.  The San Antonio game had a higher rating than whatever NBA game was on.

He didn't spill the beans, he just opened the can and let the aroma waft around the room.
