Because of traveling and having folks at the house, my awesomely prolific (read crappy) blog has been in need of more words. I’m not sure how these guys who write everyday do it – unless it’s their job. I know a lot of them are teams of dudes who combine talents to put out a blog. Sounds a little like cheating to me, not only because they team up but these bastards have talent. So if I’m not writing as much, the quality of the writing has to be much better, because I'm saving up all the good stuff. Right? Right, just like a nail-gun shot to the testicles is better than a Gatling gun barrage of nail-gun shots to the testicles.

Here are a few quickies.

This guy, a central Ohio resident who was serving in Iraq, has been seen all over the web in the last several months. I love that he has a tOSU flag in Iraq. Secondly, he’s got the little future insurgents spelling out O-H-I-O. Hey, IED making, suicide bombing great nephew of Saddam……O-H.

It is sad however to report that Sgt. Adam Knox of Whitehall, OH was killed in action in Iraq recently. It makes the rah rah college football stuff pretty insignificant. I’ve even seen this referenced on a UM site. I’d like his family to know that their son is being talked about and many are grateful for their sacrifice.

What has to go through a guys mind to say, “Ah, I don’t need that ring anymore, it was only a NCAA National Championship ring.” Ross was a freakin team captain for Pete’s sake. He did kick around in the NFL for a while, so I don’t think he’d need the money. I’d like to have it, though I’d never wear out of the house seeing as how I didn’t earn and all. But how cool would it be to have one? There’s another one on Ebay but you can’t see the players name. It's a shame to see someone feel like it is necessary and OK to let one of these go. It can't have meant much to them to start with. Oh sure, there's the argument that he was there and participated in the game so he's got the memories. Poppycock. I'd want that ring on my finger. It would give me many more opportunities to "Tell you who I am."

Side note: I think it is tremendous that even though it is a National Championship ring, the score of the Game (tOSU v. scUM) is on it. Goes to show how big that game is.

Tomorrow: State Penn @ tOSU prediction. Hold on to your bets until you hear from me.
