Petway nails threes to death metal. Seriously.
This is something I just discovered as an added benefit of Brian switching to Google Search on the site.
Chrome has built in functionality to accumulate searches from sites so that you can type in the url of that site and a phrase and it will use that site's search. Obviously, Google's search is going to incorporate this feature to allow Chrome to easily find these for us.
Try this out, open a new tab (Ctrl+T), start typing "mgoblog.com" (you only need enough to make the autosuggest bring up the site, I only need to type in "mg"), and press tab. That will bring up "Search mgoblog.com:" in your navigation bar. Then, type in whatever you want to search for. I tried Kris Frost. Press Enter and you will be brought to MGoBlog's search page with results for your search.
Similar functionality can be accomplished in Firefox with the search bar in the upper right, but seeing as I don't run Firefox anymore, I don't know the exact steps to add MGoBlog to it.
NOTE: You need to do a manual search on the site for Chrome to allow you to do this.
Today I took some time and took a walk around campus to see some of the construction and how things are going about. I drive by the stadium a few times a week so none of that was new to me, but I'm sure there's some on here that would love to see an update. I didn't take a ton of pictures of the stadium - we're at the point where we kinda know what we're getting, so these reflect the little work left to be done IMO.
Also included: Crisler/Practice Facility construction is underway, the Law School is getting a new building south of it and north of the Ford School, and North Quad is approaching completion and is quite simply stunning. I'm considering going back out either tomorrow or later this week to hit up the Soccer complex, wrestling complex, and Hospital addition, so hopefully I can post some pictures on those. If anyone has any requests, let me know!
Click on each picture to see that respective set in lightbox mode. I saved them at about 1160 width, so if you enlarge them they won't blow up your screen.
Disclaimer: As I got to the stadium, I realized my camera was almost dead (it died at North Quad), so I avoided playing with settings and spending any unneccesary time with it on. As such, quality is good, but not great.
Here's what's happening with Crisler and the new Basketball facility. I really didn't expect to see all this once I turned the corner and started heading east on Stadium Boulevard. There's not a ton of insight here as to what's it come, but it's interesting to see they've already completely torn out that hill on the southwest corner of the arena.
Moving on to campus, here's some pictures of the new Law School building and some construction on Law Quad/Law Research building. There's talks that the University is trying to get the street between the soon-to-be new building and Law Quad to be a pedestrian only street. That would be pretty nice and something I'm in favor of.
Here's North Quad. Quite simply, it's amazing. There's no doubt in my mind that it has to be the premier facility/building/dorm in B10 country. The pictures fail to relate just how huge North Quad is. The first picture kinda shows how tall the southwest tower of North Quad is, just a little shorter than the Bell Tower. The northwest plaza looks great (near the end of the pictures). Unfortunately my camera died right after the last picture.
Just got an emergency alert from DPS to avoid the area of North University between Fletcher and Church because there was a natural gas leak at the construction site at North U and Geddes (near CC Little, Chem Building, etc).
Have you guys seen the photos? They are so surreal it looks photoshopped. I can't wait to hear what the depth is...I guess the last sinkhole there was over 330 feet deep which (I believe) is approximately a 33 story building. This one looks like it goes directly to the center of the earth.

I like the look on the guy's face at the end.
GBW is reporting a commitment from Andrews, South Carolina comedian Chris Rock. Rock was not able to make the BBQ and this commitment is completely out of the blue. He had no other offers at the time of his commitment.
|Comedy Central's 100 Greatest Comedians||EntertainmentRankings.com||faqs.org|
|#5 Stand-Up||#3 Stand-Up||#52 Stand-Up|
Chris Rock, to me, now that Carlin and Pryor have both passed, is the greatest living stand-up and the funniest comedian over the last 20 years.
Faqs.org, begins by talking about one of Rock's negatives:
...he's known predominantly for racial humor...
but then follows up with praise almost on par with EntertainmentRankings.com:
...funny is funny and Chris Rock is one of the funniest human beings on the planet.
And then finishes off with an assessment of one of his strengths:
Perhaps the greatest testament to his skill is how mainstream he's become: despite talking about controversial topics such as race and sex and working very "Blue" he's loved by inner city minorities, white suburban dads, and elderly WWII vets.
Rock is listed consistently at 5-11 and 45 years old. He has appeared in several movies, such as Beverly Hills Cop II, Boomerang, and Dogma. He also attended the Academy Awards in 2005 as the host, to mixed reviews.
Chris Rock has reported no other offers at this time. Probably because he's a 45 year old comedian and not a football player. Presumably Rodriguez and his staff intended to offer Columbus DeSales defensive end Chris Rock rather than the comedian and there was just a clerical error.
Chris Rock spent 3 years on Saturday Night Live and was on 60 different episodes. He has also been the director, writer, actor, or producer on several movies.
FAKE 40 TIME
Comedians do not have 40 times, hence they can not be fake.
Highlights (NSFW audio):
You can also see a video of Chris Rock talking about drugs (more NSFW audio).
PREDICTION BASED ON FLIMSY EVIDENCE
Being a 45-year old comedian and not a football player, Chris Rock seems like a lock for a redshirt while they get him in shape for football. After that, he may be moved to punter or holder, where the chance of him being injured will be minimized.
Following his redshirt season, Rock likely still will not see playing time, unless we're facing Delaware State again. He will probably be used as a motivational tool for the team.
UPSHOT FOR THE REST OF THE CLASS
Chris Rock is the first comedian in the 2011 class and likely the last. Unfortunately, this leaves one fewer scholarship spot for the 2011 class. This offer seems like a reach, at best. They really should have offered the defensive end from Columbus instead.
