*Drew actually brought up a good point the other day. Why does a tremendous internet journalist such as myself say that every coach sucks? That’s a good question and something I never realized but is so obviously accurate. I don’t know what constitutes greatness to me but I suppose my qualifications are:
1. Do you win all the games that you should while splitting those that are toss-ups/you shouldn’t win?
2. Do I feel like you get the most out of your players?
While Bob Stoops definitely is OK in question 1, he fails question 2 (IN MY PERSONAL OPINION). You know someone that really sucks though that for some reason still has a high profile job? Bo Pelini. Bo, and his idiot brother Carl, should just wear clown suits on the sideline. They are supposed to “bring back the black shirts” yet their defense (other than Suh) has been nothing but average. They both look like gomers. I tried to remember the last time that the Pelini-led Huskers won a game in which they were underdogs. And nothing springs to mind. The Pelini brothers are awful…yet Li’l Strut would take them as Ohio State’s next coach(es). Somebody get LS a pair of clown shoes.
*UH OH SPAGHETTI-O'S!!! According to the Dispatch, the NCAA (who should have figured this out awhile ago) is apparently ready to rule on the Buckeyes.
In a signal that tougher penalties likely loom, the NCAA has notified Ohio State University that it is facing a charge of failing to monitor its violation-plagued football program.
Thoughts? This seems like a pleasant surprise to this Buckeye Hater. I was expecting nothing to happen.
*Nats catcher Wilson Ramos has been kidnapped in his native Venezuela. Jesus Christ! This should be getting much more ink right now but it’s being overshadowed. I can’t believe that this bullshit happens. Why would any Mexican go back to Mexico when this sort of stuff seemingly happens all the time? Latin America sucks.
*Why do I love John Daly? Because the big guy is a goddamn disaster. Take his actions at the Australian Open earlier this week for example:
Then at the 11th, it appeared that Daly gave up, and simply hit the remaining balls he had into a water hazard that he didn't come close to clearing. Daly hit seven golf balls into the water on No. 11 and would have been hitting his 16th shot had he continued.
That is ridiculously funny. Running out of balls on purpose so you can (presumably) head to the nearest Hooters is such a Daly thing to do. How is this guy not dead yet?
*While Michigan State is going to be average this season, I am intrigued by the Carrier Classic (it’s tonight, I think). An outdoor basketball game that counts? I’m in. Unless there’s a 30 mph wind, Carolina is going to slaughter Sparty (like they do every time they meet).
*I’m going to the Blue Jackets/Winnipeg game tomorrow night. They are so fucking bad. I’m hoping that the CBJ picks me out of the crowd to play goalie though. I couldn’t be any worse than Steve Mason. How would I fix this team? I’m not sure why you would ask someone who has only been following hockey for about 4 years, but I’ll answer anyway. Fire Coach Arniel. Kill Kris Russell. Trade Antoine Vermette for a retirement home’s septic tank. BENCH GODDAMN MASON. Tell Rick Nash that he isn’t a Captain anymore. After these moves, the team will still probably suck.
Surely, a good chunk of the comments today will be about Trivia Night last night and I’m fine with that. I’m just giving everyone some additional talking points. Let’s see if we can make it through the weekend without any more disgusting sex allegations (and if the pimp service story is true, apparently it will be made public by Saturday). Oh goodie…
