A person should mean what he says or else he should refrain from comment. That type of individual is the bigot upon whom we must concentrate our efforts. . . The forces of intolerance and hate are on the march today. The seed of hate and discord is being sewn all around us. It is our task to inculcate our worthy ideals into the warped minds of weaklings before this seed takes root. - Angelo Paterno, 1945

Let's All Feel Superior

I don't know how many of you have read David Brooks' November 14 article titled "Let's All Feel Superior" but it's a very good and informed take on some of the psychology behind why the media's...

Story of Similar Child Sex Abuse in Red Sox Organization in the 1970's

+

Very good article about a strikingly similar case that I had personally never heard of before. Focused on one of the victim's who was abused by the Red Sox former clubhouse manager, this article gets a little deeper into the psychological effects that such crimes can leave on the victims. Very sad, but worth the read to improve understanding.

Early Mock Drafts

Still is currently being predicted to be taken in the late first round. as the 2nd or 3rd DT off the board. One would think there is room for his stock to continue rising with some good showings against the big boys of the B1G.

[BH: We'll obviously have much more to say about this as time moves on, but for now, here is your post for talking about the lessons of Dick Nixon that Jim Tressel never learned.] I'd have to think this can't be positive. But whether it's just kind of bad or pink-slip-portendingly bad, I don't know. Anyone care to weigh in?

Penn State's Hertzog at #7 on Latest MLS Draft Big Board

2

from Soccer by Ives (one of the biggest soccer blogs in the US). Hertzog has accepted a Generation adidas contract (meaning, in a nutshell, that he won't count against a team's salary cap) and will forego his senior season in Happy Valley to enter the draft on Jan. 13.

Wait, does this mean they're starting to get it?

63

This is from Fox Sports Ohio. From all the Buckeye drop-ins here at BSD, I thought they'd never come around.

Not that anyone cares about soccer

11

But anyway, Corey Hertzog from Penn State is #10 on Ives Galarcep's (who runs the best US Soccer Blog out there) MLS Draft Board. I don't think we have anyone playing professionally, and he's only a junior so this is big news. Good luck!

So I was watching highlights of Peyton Hillis today, and immediately something came to mind. Aaron F-ing Harris. For no real reason, I've been thinking about the teams from 95-99 a lot lately. I remember Enis being great and getting the attention, but no one ever left an impression on me watching a game like Aaron Harris. He was a pro-style running back and I think he would have been an absolute force on Sundays if not for his terrible and untimely injury. I'll never forget the way this man ran. It's worth a watch if you haven't seen it, and worth another if you have.
