More uniformz sacrilege coming your way because apparently everything that ever existed must be destroyed by 21st century creative marketing grads. The mary jane leaves become all the more relevant and appropriate. "So many bong hits man, I blacked out..."
Ohio State team captain Michael Bennett gave President Obama bunny ears during their team photo at the White House.
And his now deleted tweet:
Did the bunny ears show up on TV or was it too late?— Mike (@mike63bennett) April 20, 2015
Per a tweet from Doug Lesmerises of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Ohio has changed the schedule on the wall to something with a little bit of a Brady Hoke-ism. This is the kind of stuff that makes the rivalry fun IMO...
@PDBuckeyes In OSU team meeting room for #SigningDay, schedule on wall for 2012 lists "that team up north" instead of Michigan.
Summary of Luke Fickell's signed employement contract here.
$775,000 total compensation for Fickell.
Tressel's total compensation was $3.5 million per year.
The contract, released by the university on Thursday, makes it very clear that Fickell is not guaranteed a job after the agreement ends Jan. 31, 2012.
“This agreement is renewable solely upon an offer from Ohio State and an acceptance by coach,” the contract stipulates in section 2.0 under Term. “This agreement in no way grants coach a claim to tenure in employment.”
Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith, who did not immediately return a call requesting comment, has said that Fickell will be a candidate for the permanent job but that the school will do a nationwide search to find its next head coach. Rumors of potential candidates have been circulating ever since 10-year coach Jim Tressel was forced to resign.

Bollman (let's refer to his offense 'Walrusball' going forward) has now produced two games where the Buckeyes failed to score more than seven points. He is on his way to becoming known nationally as the Greg Robinson of offensive coordinators for 2011. All he needs is a little stuffed Brutus to sick on JB Shugarts' neck every time he does what JB Shugarts always seems to do.
In an effort to help provide more general Big Ten coverage, here are two interesting (and schadenfreude-laden) items posted on Eleven Warriors today:
1) The Edge of Despair, on the State of Buckeye Football. Long story short, it's not good. I was at the first two games of Ohio State's current season, and a dramatic last-minute finish versus Toledo--Toledo!--is not in the Ohio State modus operandi. His description of the game environment, when corrected for OSU Tatgate bias, is accurate in many details.
2) Highlights from OSU-Toledo. The choice of song and tone is hilarious. Not pictured: Turnovers, throws to Tacopants, missing starters, repeated booings of Bausermann's throws to Tacopants. /notsayinjustsayin
