"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Matt Hayes of the Sporting News (whose wife went to OSU) just destroys Ohio in his column today:
Considering what happened at Penn State, those are some strong words.
I'm sure Meyer's happy that he got him to flip from Oregon, but man. Can we send Heiko to Texas to ask him what he thinks about murder?
Title says it all. But this is the day we've all been waiting for. This weekend the Raiders will play the San Diego Chargers with Terrelle Pryor at the helm.
Ted Sarniak, Terrelle Pryor's "mentor" and alleged Tressel bagman, passed away this weekend. Ohio State hiding behind FERPA laws and having it being upheld in Ohio Supreme Court never allowed the public to learn more about his relationship with Tressel.
In his obituary he refers to Terrelle Pryor as his "special son."
The Ohio season is finally over. 6-7 finish topped off by loss to a mediocre Florida squad 17-24.
2011 counts the first losing record for Ohio football program since 1988 (John Cooper 1st year) and 1966 (Woody Hayes) before that.
No championship and no bowl next year for Ohio, so only role to play appears to be "spoiler" in 2012.
Here we are, on the eve of the game. And while we hate Ohio (State) with every fiber of our beings, that does not change the fact that many of us have misguided friends or loved ones who cheer for the Buckeyes. Obviously, dealing with these people will be easier this holiday season after a victory, but you will still have to see them. So with only 30 shopping days left until Christmas, I have setup an Etsy account to peddle cheaply made crap that you can give to your cousin's dick husband instead of the usual forties of Camo or Skoal variety packs.
As always with Etsy, each product is handmade with found materials (from in my neighbors' garbage), so quantities are limited and are priced accordingly.
Jim Tressel Angel Tree Topper
Bask in the glow of a tragic hero. Wonder at his pureness as he gazes down upon his Christmas kingdom.
Two AA batteries not included.
Terrelle Pryor Doily Angel
This is a charming small angel, about twelve inches across, that attaches nicely to a window with a small suction cup hook. It's slimness is convenient because it does not interfere with closing blinds or curtains. Light enough to be hung on a mirror for an unexpected seasonal touch. At first glance, it appears to be a large intricate doily cut from paper. That is the first impression when hung on a window and viewing it from outside. Folding the paper angel's wings forward gives a feeling of motion. This would make a great seasonal decoration for any window. Please contact me if you need a quantity.
Small suction cup not included.
