BREAKING: Tom Izzo Has Resigned

…from the National Association of Basketball Coaches Board. Sorry, I don’t know why that part of the title got cut off. But while you’re here, why don’t you listen to read my bitching about the NCAA.

The NCAA Can Fine Student-Athletes?

I haven’t really followed the whole James Wiseman Saga at Memphis for the past few weeks. I remember hearing word that the top NBA Draft prospect from Memphis was getting suspended and thought “huh, that sucks. At least Cincinnati can continue to be Penny Hardaway’s daddy now that he won’t be a factor.” Well… not so fast my friend. It turns out both match-ups with the Bearcats fall after the NCAA’s date of January 12th to clear Wiseman. Under one condition. Continue reading

Alabama Fan Shows Restraint; Avoids Killing Everyone at His Wedding

Congratulations to the newest married couple down south. All this poor guy wanted to do was get drunk with his buddies, say “I do” without falling over or pissing himself and eat some Alabama cake. Roll Damn Pie. I couldn’t think of a play on the word ‘cake’. That’s on me and for that, I apologize.  Continue reading

Countdown to Kickoff: 50 Days

It’s that time of year again ladies and gentlemen.  At just over 7 weeks to go, the college football season is almost upon us.  Join me over the next 50 days as I countdown until the start of Ohio State’s football season on August 31st (and yes, I realize the college football season kicks off the weekend before that, but c’mon, who cares?).  The anticipation is already starting to build here in Ohio.  It feels a bit odd to be starting the season on the road on a Thursday night against a Big 10 opponent, but I actually like that fact that they aren’t starting off with some MAC school that they would absolutely blow the doors off of.  Indiana’s no juggernaut either, but they have given the Buckeyes some trouble in recent years, so it should be a good one to watch.

Last season ended on quite the sour note.  The Buckeyes looked inept in every phase of the game as they were routed by Clemson 31-0 in the College Football Playoffs.  Hopefully the Buckeyes can get back there this year.  That’s going to hinge mostly on the arm of JT Barrett.  If he can return to his 2014 form I think the Buckeyes are a lock to win the Big 10 and get back to the playoff.  But he’s been incredibly inconsistent since then, and as he goes, so goes the offense.  With a young, inexperienced receiving corps, it’s going to be a tough task.  Right now I’m feeling confident about the upcoming season, but with 50 days left until opening kickoff, the next 7 weeks are bound to be roller coaster of emotions.
