Well, if you are going to drink until you puke, there is no better place to do so than that giant toilet bowl of a stadium in Columbus.

This is why I left the Corporate world and acquired several businesses. It is also why I replaced 85% of my salaried and hourly employees during the first year of owning any business. It is now why I have only 1099 commissioned employees outside my admin. Deliver or starve.
Employers suck. Employees suck. Frankly, either create your own path or get used to it.

While waiting for a flight back from London to the US in 1995, David Letterman sat down next to me in the British Air Courtesy Suite. He had just finished a week of very highly hyped shows from London. As he was sitting down I smiled and said, "Congratulations on your shows. They turned this town upside down." His response? "Can't you see I have a newspaper in my hands? Don't bother me." He proceeded to unfold his paper and peer over it at people for 30 minutes -- never really reading it. I haven't watched his show since.
His "Late Night from London" jacket he was wearing was very cool though. The only change I would have made would be to change the name on the front from "Dave" to "Asshole".

Hard to sleep on the #5 kid out of Florida when the Top 4 were D'Angelo Russell, Chris McCollough, Joel Berry and Grayson Allen. Yet, all the scouting services had up to 8 or 9 Florida kids in their top100 -- just not the kid everyone in Florida who follows Florida basketball called #5. If you saw him play, you knew. If you didn't, you wouldn't.

Great idea. I am declaring that I am officially redshirting too. I'm done this year and I'll be back next season!
So I'll just watch from the sidelines with no physical or emotional involvement. Wow, this feels so liberating.

I'm not sure what the big deal is. Bolden was simply expressing that our offense would be camping out at midfield until the game was decided. Next week drive the stake into the endzone.

Living just south of Fort Myers, I had the opportunity to watch Ricky Doyle play in the Palms City tournament over the Christmas Holiday against some of the nation's best talent. Don't sleep on him. He is not Beifeldt 2.0. He isn't significantly more athletic, but his is much, much more skilled. He is the number 5 player in Florida and rated a five-star talent by Florida Hoops. Florida has some great players.
Ricky has one of the smoothest softest shots I've seen from a big fella. He was matched up against a Colorado team with two Division I bigs and lit them up for 23 with zero support. Not one of his shots from the floor hit the rim. His face up game is superb. Give him space and he will bury it. Back to the basket game? Well, in Bielein's offense who really cares. Defensively, he isn't the fastest afoot, but with some work and conditioning he will be competent. Definitely not a shot blocker. Rebounding is decent, but he isn't a great leaper.
Closest comparator I can think of is a 6'10" Frank Kaminsky who is a bit thicker and not quite as quick under the basket. He is a shooter who draw an opponents big to the perimiter and over time will add some defense and rebounding. Okay, I'll go there -- Pittsnogle 2.0, but a little more athletic.

I renewed today, but almost missed it. I did send an email to the ticket office chastising them for moving renewal date up from May 15th to tax day (WTF I see more than enough money go out of my account that day, just stick another fork in me) and for not sending out their maize renewal envelope this year about 45 days in advance. The first notice I received was the email Tuesday notifying me I was late and had until this Friday. Not real happy with their process this year.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||I never received a letter in||
I never received a letter in the mail, nor did I receive an email prior to April 15th. I received an email late last week stating I have until this Friday to renew.
In the past the renewal date was May 15th, not April 15th and I received a letter at least 45 days in advance letting me know.
Seems like the keystone cops have taken over the ticket office. I planned on calling them Thursday when I return home.

I was at a dinner last month and had a chance to speak to Gene Keady for about ten minutes. We talked Michigan basketball as much as Purdue basketball. I had to laugh when he said, "Can you believe what Fisher is doing at San Diego State? He must have hired some good assistants because when I coached against him he had tons of talent but didn't have a clue what he was doing."

I thought Morgan was a solid, steady contributor his first 2-1/2 years until he rolled his ankle last year. His mobility was severly limited and he lost his confidence because of it. McGary stepped in last year and stepped up. Due to his back injury, McGary was suffering this year from a bit of what plauged Morgan last year. Morgan is obviously healthy and playing confident again and that is a huge plus for this team.

As a fanbase the Buckeyes have zero credibility. Most will lie to themselves and others to justify their idiocy. No charges have been filed because either others have not corroborated the bucknut's story or their are too many inconsistencies. Maybe the drunk bucknut just fell off his cooler and hit his own face and Lewan, in the vicinity, laughed at him.
|1 year 36 weeks ago||His body is similar to Jordan||
His body is similar to Jordan Morgan's, but they have very different skillsets. Doyle is a much better shooter and much smoother around the rim. Defensively, Morgan is much better. That said, it is hard to judge Doyle's upside defensively as he is only 17 and he was playing against kids nearly his height, but 30 lbs lighter. I agree he will be a solid contributor. Definitely a Big Ten body. Definitely a good find by the coaching staff.
If he had one or two decent players on the court with him, it would have helped him immensely. There isn't a single player on his team who would start on any decent Michigan high school program. He can't come off the floor as his team would get run, he gets all the defensive attention, and he is still averaging 30 a game.
