    My guess is Durkin has coached his last game at Turtle. They are about to get HAMMERED with a wrongful death lawsuit.

    There's a very real possibility SC rolls out a better starting QB as a true frosh than the sophomore we roll out.

    Truly pathetic. Talk about a "toxic" environment. Thuggery in the name of fandom is still just thuggery.

    Yeah, my friend Kip who was the other UT alum who crashed the tailgate party lives a charmed life and was truly lucky to not be murdered before we got there. On a funny other note, we strolled the campus and the stadium the night before as 3 of us had never been. Well as we're passing the hotel on campus next to the stadium, the OSU team starts trotting out to go through what I assume was their pre-game walk thru. Kip goes to the front of the stairs and starts high fiving the players as they come out until a couple of them notice he's wearing a UT shirt at which point some of the bigger boys start giving him shit. He just yells as he strolls away, "Good luck. You're going to need it. Hook'em!" I swear he must have two guardian angels working overtime.

    Yes they are, and it will be bloody. Hope The U. has a sizable fund set aside-- they'll need it.

    Wow, that character was one of the first names I put down. Tells you tough the cutting room floor decisions were.

    He said that coaches can't be trusted.

    He included Herman in that because he's a liar by definition of his job.

    When people started talking about, he came over here to argue for himself.

    It didn't go well.

    In the last decade, the red wasn't warranted very often.

    Joel is way too low. Is interesting that ALL those characters besides Tropic Thunder one pre-date Oprah's couch. I also think Nathan Algren (Last Samurai) is a glaring omission.

    Ok. But how does "for once" make sense given the 15 seasons prior?

    I have 3 stories from that game up in Columbus Ohio and they are not good.There fans are the worst I have witnessed at a College football game,even worst than the people in Arkansas after the 69 NC game.

    We probably never want to do home and home series with the Gooners. It would be similar to playing in Columbus.

    I rarely agree with anything Ketch says outside of football but he was spot on on #5. I was in Columbus that day with a buddy and we got called homosexual more different ways than I thought existed and that was just from the girls. We were lucky to get back to our car alive after the game as we had people in our face the whole way there. We had a cop tell us to get the hell out of there and we say a man in burnt orange that was about 80 getting the business every bit as much as we were. Craziest and most disgusting college football game day experience I have ever experienced or witnessed. Will never root for those assholes ever again and if they get some sort of penalty for all of this I will be 1) shocked and 2) it won't be bad enough!!!

    For once was speaking of the last decade, not for all-time.

    Great article - I can't figure out Ohio State. Firing a popular and successful coach like Tressel for what didn't seem to be that serious puzzled me on one end of things. The Meyer situation could be the opposite.

    Cruise in Color of Money bears mention as he proved he could share the screen quite effectively with a Hollywood icon.

    Ohio State and the Big 1G are pretty stout academically, OU is not

    Thank you. Parts 1 and 2 were spot on.

    The next wave will be about poor Urban getting caught in the crossfire and how we need to assist him in any way.

    tOSU players took money from boosters and sold jeresys etc. This issue involved players, not family of coaches, taking illegal benefits. Tressel denied that he knew about the players taking illegal benefits when it became public knowledge. Then e-mails were discovered revealing Tressel was told of the violations well before they became public and before the university administration knew. He covered then up, The e-mails proved that he lied about never knowing. That is about as serious as it gets with the NCAA as it goes into lack of administrative control. Tressel deserved to be fired and to OSU's credit which I reluctantly give as I dislike that program immensely, they did the right thing and fired Tressel. He was a winner so that went against their natural instincts to keep him on. It was definitely serious and a firing offense regardless of what happens with Meyer and how you grade the two.

    Agreed with the B10, did not know that tOSU was held in the same category as UM, NW, Purdue, etc. My Dad played Bball at UM. Probably just his banter about tOSU.

    I still can't believe my 3 buddies and I didn't get our asses kicked in Columbus. As we were leaving our hotel I distinctly remember getting the finger from a 55-60 year old woman who was wearing a "F Texas and the Steer they rode in on" T-Shirt that they apparently had specially made just for that game. The only fanbase I've ever witnessed that were worse than Pig Suey.

    I think Cruise is a nut job but that dude just makes hit blockbuster movies and I can get on board with that. I think it didn't make the list because it's too recent, but what about the role of Barry Seal in American Made? Great freaking movie.

    I was with a Longhorn group at the game in Columbus, and their fans threw rocks and bricks at our bus at it was leaving. On a positive note my wife and I were invited to a tail gate party of ex OSU players.
