Sidebar Update

Yeah, the MSU game is in less than three hours, and I haven't said anything about it. Oh well. We all know what the situation is. OSU is the more talented team, and Michigan State may be completely self-destructing, but we all remember 1998, when the Spartans ruined a perfect season in a similar situation. Plus, there's always the chance that the players overlook the Spartans, or just play poorly. A loss is always a possibility. So I'm nervous, just like everyone else.

In the meantime, I've put some work in on the sidebar. I added the freshman year guidelines to the greatest hits section, just to put something else there. I cleaned up the mainstream media links a bit. And I added a bunch of OSU blogs. First up is the Buckeye Expat, a blog from a Buckeye in ACC country. I gotta say, I like his NFL picks this week (as well as that bonus college pick). We've also got the POJO Dojo, a fellow Cavs fan as well as a Steelers fan, which probably makes life a little difficult in Cleveland. There's also the Penalty Kill, a quality blog despite not appreciating the comedic genius of John L. Smith. I also added AOL's OSU blog, run by JD of Around the Oval. There's also Buckeye Battle Cry, he of the great YouTube videos, and Eleven Warriors, another quality OSU blog, which also has probably my favorite logo of all of them. I'm not sure why, I just like it.

Those last two are noteworthy also because they allow me to do this:

In old Ohio there's a team
That's known throughout the land
Eleven warriors brave and bold,
Whose fame will ever stand.
And when the ball goes over,
Our cheers will reach the sky,
Ohio Field will hear again
The Buckeye Battle Cry!

Drive, Drive on down the field,
Men of the scarlet and gray;
Don't let them through that line,
We've got to win this game today,
COME ON OHIO!
Smash through to victory,
We cheer you as we go!
Our honor defend we will fight to the end
for O-HI-O!

I don't think there are any other good blog names in there, but if anyone starts up a "Smash Through to Victory" blog, I'll be happy to link to you.

Thanks for the shoutout. And nice job on the freshman guideline--I've been out of school for a few years now, but I remember the days qutie well.
