Golden Boy Stephen Strasburg is once again on the DL. Another MRI is being done for his strained tendon in the forearm. Poor kid. Hey, you know what, at least he has his money. His health is in question but damn, that money ain't going anywhere.
In NCAA Football news, according to the AP, Ohio State will pay the Colorado Buffaloes $1.4 million to play the Buckeyes at Ohio Stadium in 2011. Absolutely unheard of. Since when does a major school pay another major school (albeit mediocre) $1.4 million to play a regular season game? It's a joke. Compared to the $300,000 to $700,000 Ohio State normally pays for an out-of-conference home game, I guess they think finally playing a legit (read: mediocre) school and winning will be better for them than playing the likes of Akron or Toledo.
In 2009, Ohio State OOC included Navy (W 31-27), #3 USC (L 18-15), @Toledo (W 38-0), and New Mexico State (W 45-0). Total score: Ohio State 129, Opponent 45. Record: 3-1. Three cupcakes and a powerhouse. In 2008, Ohio State entertained Youngstown St. (W 43-0), Ohio (W 26-14), @#1 USC (L 35-3) and Troy (W 28-10). Total score: Ohio State 100, Opponents 59. Record 3-1. Three cupcakes and a powerhouse.
Here's an idea, schedule some better teams (a la Colorado in 2011, #13 Miami in 2010). They play Eastern Michigan this year, who didn't win a game in 2009. I guess they'll get at least one win.
Weather sucks. Gotta drop off my DirecTV shit. Maybe whip up some dinner. Get a picture of Nathan printed out so I can get this process moved along getting into our new place. Damn will I be exponentially happier in a nice apartment instead of the dregs we live now.
