That's a misunderstanding of what the phrase actually originates from. It predates the use of the term spade as derogatory, so as far as I'm concerned, there's no reason not to use it. 

There are phrases in the English language that should die, but this isn't one of them.

I don't think Akron Buck's comments are any more controversial than saying the that the Westboro Baptist Church is hateful. There is room for religious groups to disagree with public policy and engage in debate, but it's the manner in which they do it that causes ire.

Sure, why not?

This whole dynamic would be different if he were chosen over for a dud. But the guy that beat him out went out to complete one of (the most?) successful passing seasons ever at Ohio State. The cupboard was full and there just happened to be a shinier dish in there.

Officially stage 3 carcinoid cancer (in the small bowel). Luckily surgery alone took care of it. For that reason I really don't feel part of the cancer survivor fraternity because I didn't have to deal with chemo or radiation.

Diagnosis was dragging on until a doctor finally referred me to the James at Ohio State. Within 3 months of the first time I stepped into a doctor's office in Columbus without knowing what I had, I was cured. As much as we love their football team, Ohio State is truly kicking ass where it really matters.

Although not quite as dramatic as your story, I also made a lifestyle change in October of last year. I went from ~210 pounds at that time to 162 pounds as of this morning. 32 y/o male. I feel so much better, and what a joy it is to carry a 50 lb bag of water softener salt knowing I used to carry that with me all the time!

I get yearly CT scans done for surveillance testing (cancer free for 5 years in December!), and I've always had a "fatty liver". My last CT scan revealed that "the hepatic steatosis seen on prior exam has resolved." Losing that weight does more than just make you look better! All your organs thank you!

Their recruiting rankings are high because they have such high attrition they need to take 25 kids every class.
