Tight End, Loose Cannon? Kyle Rowland of Eleven Warriors broke the news late Tuesday that Buckeye tight end Marcus Baugh had been suspended from the team indefinitely for yet another issue with underaged alcohol usage. While many of us would file this either under “meh” or “college lyfe!!”, it’s important to note that this would be Baugh’s third “incident” while a Buckeye, and his second involving alcohol. He was removed from scholarship last summer, and was removed from team activities in September as well… it will be interesting to see if Coach Meyer believes in a “three strikes and you’re done” policy. Baugh has always been seen as an amazing athlete, but his absence will mean that the other tight ends in the system (Heuerman, Moore, and Vannett) may be asked to bear the burden during the spring and beyond; the 2014 recruiting class does not have a tight end in the mix as of yet.
Good Word For A Good Friend
You know Mekka Don from all of the great OSU tunes he’s busted into your subconscious- “Let’s Go!”, “Juice”, and “Go Nuts” just from the hoops and football seasons alone.
Well, his first major release is in the works, and he’s launched an Indiegogo campaign to give you the chance to get in on the ground floor. Here, we’ll let him tell it:
There are great “packages” available for donors at all sorts of levels… if you’re into hip-hop and supporting a hard working artist who’s out there grinding every day, here’s your chance.
Thoughts and prayers go out to the families of our Boilermaker brothers and sisters today, particularly the friends and loved ones of the student who lost his life in today’s tragedy.
As we look at the photos of tonight’s vigil, we can’t help but be reminded how fragile our lives and the experiences on our college campuses are. Yes, the number of these types of incidents are way down over the past thirty years or so, but any number greater than zero is still too great.
We all have Boiler ties- Coach Hazell and staff are very “Buckeye-centric”, and we think too of our Boiled Sports friends and favorite Mississippi sportscaster. We’re behind you 100 percent, Purdue, and will continue to work to ensure that students, faculty, staff, families, and community members are safe and welcomed on campuses across the country.

Probably for the best that wingsuits weren’t around about 25 years ago or so… or yours truly would probably be splattered all over a cliff trying something like this:
