Lots of excitement in your Wednesday updates…

Ah, balloons...

  • The Wait Is Over! As you’re reading this, the Ohio State football team is preparing for it’s first practice of the spring; and the coaches are as excited as the fans are, it seems. Be on the lookout for news and notes from today’s open practice, as well as a great preview from the Athletic Department later Wednesday. As happy as Buckeye fans are to see the new regime, I’d have to say Badger cheerleaders were even more excited.
  • Tonight! We Dine In The WHAC!!!! Monday was the “Champion’s Dinner” as a reward for hard work during spring conditioning, and while details are still forthcoming we know that there was a relatively small number of Buckeyes who were honored for their efforts in the classroom, weightroom, and on the practice field. Sounds as if the “winners” were treated to filet and other goodies, while the rest of the team had “grilling” fare- hot dogs, burgers, etc.  Please note that I said “grilling”…

That's One Way To Put It

Other NCAA News

Which is the better Findlay, Ohio, export — Aaron Craft or Domino’s Parmesan Bread Bites? Craft is the best perimeter defender in college basketball and plays an irreplaceable role on a Final Four team, which are two things that can’t be said about the Parmesan Bread Bites. But the Bread Bites have also never fouled out of the biggest game of the year like Craft did against Syracuse on Saturday, and since you can get 16 of them for $1 while Craft’s yearly scholarship is worth at least $20,000, the Bread Bites are a far better bargain. This is why I’m giving the slight edge to the Bread Bites for now, but this could easily change if Craft plays well in the Final Four or I actually try the Bread Bites only to find out that they taste like wet farts.

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – A 270-pound University of Kansas football player got stuck in the drive-thru window of a Taco Bell when he tried to charge employees who left the chalupa out of his order, authorities said.

  • Make that paper, son- Nick Saban gets a salary bump; of course the NCAA can’t afford stipends for student athletes.  Earlier, he had the ability to say, with a straight face:

There’s nobody takin’ profits from what we make at Alabama or any of these schools here, and puttin’ in in their pocket. It’s not a business, it’s revenue producing, that’s all reinvested back in the university and the athletic department and the program. Nobody’s really making money – I mean we get paid salaries.”

  • From another perspective-  As noted on a BP forum,

Rick Pitino has earned $175,000 over the last 2 weeks (via contract bonuses), while the players that actually earned the victories through their athletic exploits on the court have earned $0.

And Finally- I’m excited to see this become a part of the BTN for future seasons:

    Well, that was some update, Mali. Craft is a man after my own heart with his grammar correction; up to the point when he corrects my spelling in live-chats.

    I’m sure there’s a story of how Titus knows what a wet fart tastes like, but I’d rather not read abut it.

    Nick Saban, seriously? That should explain a lot of things.

    Regarding the Kansas football player getting stuck in the Taco Bell window: He must be participating in his new Head Coach’s training regimen.

    Also, no sadness at all over seeing Ted Valentine ineligible to ref Ohio State games. He is convinced that Jared Sullinger can’t be fouled.

    From what I gathered, that’s the only reason Turner Gill didn’t work- he was too small (by a lot) for the Coach’s gear KU had laying around.

    True, but Turner and his family could have used the gear when they went camping. All he’d needed was a tent pole and a few stakes.
