Always good to see the OSU coaching ranks getting stronger.

It might be interesting to see a full rundown of all the programs at OSU, with the coaches, their tenure/records and how OSU ranks in those sports in the Big10/nationally

Comment 24 Apr 2019

Yeah, that's what I figure too.  We all know that there is recruitment that goes on at the HS level.  It seems likely that something happened back then.  No one really cares now.  Sr could have defused it all just by saying "no comment" instead of that word salad.

Comment 23 Apr 2019

The way you do that is by saying "No comment at this time" not "those other people are lying but I won't tell you how."

Dad keeps saying he's a veteran at talking to the media.  It sure didn't sound like it.

Comment 23 Apr 2019

That's the weird thing.  Dad insisting those sources were wrong, but about what?  There certainly doesn't seem to be anything bad in the actual article about him.

Comment 23 Apr 2019

Well, if you read the full transcript you'll see he originally reached out to Haskins Sr two months earlier, but got no response then.  I suspect his attempt this time was along the lines of "I have an article, this is your chance to comment on it before it runs".

There's a huge problem with old churches and modern construction workers.  The latter are used to working with materials that aren't basically kindling.  It just takes one careless welder, or malfunctioning power tool and poof.

Do note that while still old, almost all of the religious art was destroyed by the french revolution.  The cathedral wasn't what we now know until around 1860 when it was rebuilt/restored.

Man, you guys sound like my son every time he does something dangerous and I tell him not to do it again.  "But Dad, I did I backflip off of the roof once and didn't get hurt!  That clearly means it isn't dangerous!"

Lots of people do things with low chance of positive outcome and get lucky.  The lottery is predicated on this behavior.  It doesn't mean that OSU's med team was wrong for telling Dean that he shouldn't play football.

Sure, but the smart play for AZ is to try to get Murray later in the draft.

I thought this was going to be about UM hiring and firing a coach connected to the Nassar gymnastics scandal over the course of a single weekend:
