If they can celebrate The Answer in Philly, we can celebrate Spring with this great musical tribute that includes his most notorious catchphrase…
No matter what you might hear over the next few days, we’d never leave you for Austin.
Sure they’ve got great barbecue and music and… you know, on second thought… Nah. It’s always a great day to be a Buckeye- and there’s only one place in Texas that I’d be interested in going to anyway.
As we arrived in Columbus, the anticipation for kickoff was almost unbearable and we were a mere five hours away. It’s become a yearly ritual that a group of us attend the Ohio State/Wisconsin game every year and we were all giddy with excitement to reunite once again for this rivalry.
After a little tailgating and shopping, we made our way over to the skull session but watched from the entrance where the band and the team would enter in St John’s arena. I met the mom of a bass drummer who was participating in his first ramp entrance that evening. It’s stories like this that adds to the mystique of going to games in Columbus. As Urban Meyer and daughter Nikki entered through the old doors of the aging arena, a tall dark figure appeared behind them and it clicked, it was none other than two-time NBA champion LeBron … [Read More]
Good to be back… although I can always count on the team to hold the fort down for me. Given the news of the last 24 hours, I was tempted to go with a more “good advice, one week late” soundtrack. Instead, though… may this bring calm to your Wednesday’s wanderings.
It’s Monday, so you know what that means. Not a whole lot going on athletically this week that really interests me, so this will not be a “sporting” effort. With that disclaimer, get your beverage of choice and let’s wade into the swamp.
A couple of items regarding The James/Wexner this week. It’s a brief announcement, well worth the click.
First, Steven Clinton,MD, PhD, has been named to serve on the national 2015 Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee.
The committee’s recommendations and rationale will serve as a basis for the eighth edition of the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
The Dietary Guidelines serve as the foundation for national nutrition programs, standards and education. They also provide the key recommendations for the general population as well as specific population groups to help people choose an overall healthy diet that works for them…
The quiet of this week around Buckeye Nation provides a moment of peace prior to August’s chaos of fall camp and Olympic dreams. It’s completely different than July of 2011… and I don’t hear many complaining.
What I do hear, though, are the thunder and raging winds still swirling from last week’s Freeh Report. Both the national news coverage and the responses from Lion Faithful and PSU alums are clamoring- and, like what passes for dialogue these days, neither side are really listening to the other. Civility seems to be yet another casualty of this situation- although, it can be argued that this merely highlights the fact that it’s been dead for a long while.
So, this week’s SBP will take a look at some of the interesting articles and reflections on this almost indescribable set of circumstances. The view we’ll be taking will be a bit farther out- looking … [Read More]
As all is quiet on the (mid)western front, here’s Wednesday’s bucket o’ links and commentary.
Nope, this weekend starts the summer football camp season in Columbus, which is a B1G deal for the 2013/14 classes as well as for Coach Meyer’s continued
scorched earth policy building relationships with coaches and programs across the state. This weekend’s a one day camp, and the process builds to July’s Friday Night Lights event. For many HS students, this might … [Read More]
May’s second midweek madness gets existential. The big story of the day was the “discussion” about the future of our favorite sport- more on that after the jump.

But one thing is for
