For those interested in cheering the buzzer and becoming befuddled you do, in fact, have the ability to run the board entitled 'Spike Lee' after having seen absolutely zero of his movies, a 2006 alum/returning grad student to the U will be on the great American game show Jeopardy tomorrow. Have no idea how she does but I know the girl's smart as hell... but given that's coming from me that might not be a stirring recommendation.

Ah well, it's OT season and we can always hope there's an OSU alum who just colors on his Final Jeopardy question.

And for the "fill 200" requirement's sake:
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Maurice Clarett was charged with carrying a concealed weapon after a highway chase early Wednesday that ended with police using Mace on the former Ohio State running back and finding four loaded guns in his sport utility vehicle.

Officers used Mace to subdue Clarett after a stun gun was ineffective because the former Fiesta Bowl star was wearing a bullet-resistant vest, Sgt. Michael Woods said.

"It took several officers to get him handcuffed," Woods said. "Even after he was placed in the paddy wagon, he was still kicking at the doors and being a problem for the officers."

The complaint police filed when they charged him with carrying a concealed weapon without permit said he had a 9 mm handgun under his legs in the driver's seat of an SUV.

Maybe the fact that you could only come up with 100 words is a sign that this isn't diary worthy. Although it is fun to mock OSU especially considering Clarett, it needs to be saved for the right time and place.

This is probably where someone should mention that erstwhile poster and one of the co-writers at The Hoover Street Rag, Yostal, won the College Jeopardy tournament back in the day.

I don't know if that was sarcasm, but each contestant has to set their wager before they hear the question ("answer" in Jeopardy's case). They base their wagers on the category given only.
The M girl was good, although I couldn't believe she missed the Of Mice and Men question.
