The "L" is more of an "I".  COIUMBUS!!!  And yeah, any Michigan fans who bang Trey up for OMG actually being proud of his home town, despite everything he did for UM hoops, are bad form.  We may despise OSU, but if not for Columbus, Ohio and its ability to generate a young beast named Trey Burke, UM doesn't reach the Finals last year.  So for that, thank you COIUMBUS!

Doubt that I’ll ever succumb to tattoos or piercings, and I don’t find them attractive. But that might be due to my first impressions.

First “tattoo” I remember seeing was on a man who spoke with a strange accent. He worked at the local dry cleaning store. After I noticed the series of numbers written in dark blue ink on his arm, my father told me that the man was a concentration camp survivor.

In my generation, at Trey’s age, we were growing our hair longer than our parents, professors and coaches might’ve been accustomed to seeing, wearing out our jeans until the holes were large enough to expose both knees, forgetting to shave, smoking some strange thing that required us to burn incense to disguise the aroma, and turning up the volume on the receiver so we could get the sound blasting from our oversized stereo speakers while The Who sang, “Hope I die before I get old.”

The “old folks” didn’t find any of that attractive, but most of them learned to live with us. The way I see it, as a member of the current “old folks” generation: He’s Trey Burke fergodaskes. Let him get inked the way HE likes it.

Different strokes for different folks.

Is there any proof that arm belongs to Trey? That could be a lot of people.

As far as I'm concerned, this is Ohio trolling us, until we see that arm alongside Trey's face. Preferably connected via Trey's shoulder and neck.

For everyone complaining about people not liking Trey's tat just remember. People are free to get tattoos, but just know that people are also free judge you for them. You can express yourself however you want, but people can also formulate whatever opinon they want of you as well.

Hate the blue shading...one of those things that I think look horrible once you hit 30+. Unless you go nuts with it and use majority color vs. black ink.
