Welcome to Monday Musings, glad that you decided to stop in. Grab your beverage of choice and let’s get to this. If you’re at work, I’d suggest something refreshing, but not too stimulating. If you’re at home, it probably won’t matter. And, since this is Labor Day, I’m guessing it’s possibly the latter.
I have two short videos for you today; one on Omega-3′s and breast cancer with Dr. Farrar of The James and the other on coffee’s effect in preventing basal cell carcinoma, with Dr. Trotter.
On a related note, I come across these videos, and other information via Twitter. So can you. Do so @TheJamesOSU
I can see why Coach Meyer followed me to Twitter. OK, look, he actually doesn’t ‘Follow’ me in Twitter sense, he just created his Twitter account after I did.
Well, it’s certainly been an… interesting… day as far as news goes. But before we dive into the dregs of college sports (and those who “oversee” it), let’s enjoy the fact that it’s finally FOOTBAW! season. Here’s your “pump up”/palate cleanser before the season kicks off.
This falls under the “old dog, new tricks” conversation. After several months of fighting the good fight as tBBC’s resident Luddite, I finally signed up for a Twitter account, @KenKohl1. I think that’s the handle, anyway.
I “got with the program”, quite honestly, because of my involvement with this site. I know that several staffers had suggested to me to get up to speed with social media (you know who you are, so don’t stand there shuffling your feet and staring at the floor) just to get a sense of the new media information flow.
Although my wife and I have had home computers (desktops => laptops) for several years, there were really a couple turning points; all family related, of course. First, my mom bought a laptop and learned to do a bit of web surfing (NY Times articles, recipes, etc.) to supplement the daily hardcopy medium. She moved from cutting out clippings in the local paper and snail-mailing to me to emailing articles and attachments. Read More
Bert Blathers- Also in Tuesday’s B1G Conference Call, Coach Bielema talked about how impressed he is with Ohio State’s improvement as the season has progressed. He mentioned the offensive line in particular, and said that they are playing really well at this point in the year. He also addressed speculation that his team would be satisfied after last week’s win, which put them into the Conference Championship Game for the second straight year; and said that his team would not see a let down against the Buckeyes, especially given last year’s game. Added to the fact that it’s “Senior Day”, and it’s sure to be a high intensity game.

Midweek look at news and notes from around Ohio State and the nation… getting ready for what’s been predicted to be a very wet weekend.
In my short time on twitter, more specifically since taking on being a blogger for the Buckeye Battle Cry and the Good in Sports , I have tried to stick to a golden rule. If I don’t have anything positive to say, I won’t say anything at all.
Now that’s just me and it lends to my attitude that if someone is being stupid on twitter, I let them be stupid. It will take care of itself and people will see people for what they are through their actions.
Other people clearly do not share those same ideas regarding what is appropriate commentary on Twitter and online more generally.
This leads me to believe that what may or may not be considered cyber bullying needs to be looked in to and thought about more deeply by those that may participate in such not so innocent shenanigans.
I have seen people go on a rampage and attack players, fans, recruits and even bloggers for things that they post. Has anyone stopped to think that you cannot really hide behind the twitter account? Read More
In this week’s edition of news and notes, we take a look at the ever swirling world of college “playoffs”; helping you get to the bottom of the matter. You can probably guess where this is headed…
(Gee) knows more about bow ties than he does about journalism.
Probably true, but since Gordo is a fifteenth level bow-tie ninja, what does that say about your point?
OT J.B. Shugarts (seventh or free agent): Good size, but had false start and some foot problems with the Buckeyes.
