Blog Chips

-BSD has his rundown of THE ohio state buckeyes and while Mike always does a fantastic job of previewing the Big Ten I'm linking this one because he's talking some serious smack. Mike is now the recipient of the TNL Balls of Steel award previously held by Mr. Paul H. Zeigler (who appeared drunk at his DUI court hearing) for having the "guts" to suggest that James Laurinaitis is "the most overrated player in the Big Ten if not the country." Big words man, big words. I'm sure the Ohio State faithful are planning your demise as we speak.

-I'm officially announcing that Terrelle Pryor will be a Nittany Lion. It's a lock. How do I know? Inside info? Family ties? No. In a Pittsburgh Post Gazette interview he said this:

PPG: Do you eat breakfast much?
TP: Cereal. Fruity Pebbles.

Fruity Pebbles: breakfast of champions

Sorry, but anyone that eats Fruity Pebbles and admits it has the demeanor to be a Lion. USC lives off of tofu and crystal meth, Florida skips breakfast in lieu of brunch and cocktails, Michigan eats gruel and the Buckeyes eat a combination of Styrofoam, cedar chips, and orphan babies. It's a lock – mark it down.

-Sean Lee is a crazed lunatic. At least on the field, according to fellow teammate Dan Connor:

"He's quick-tempered; just a wild man as soon as he gets the pads on," Connor said of Lee. "Off the field, he's a soft-spoken guy -- pretty quiet. But he's one of the most competitive guys I've ever met.

"If you're a lineman trying to block him and do your job, you're offending him and ticking him off and he's going to do whatever he can to try to put you back."

Do not attempt to block Sean Lee you are only making him angry and you wouldn't like him when he's angry. What about that missed tackle in the bowl game last year that turned a sure loss into a 42 yard touchdown run for LaMarcus Coker?

"I love hearing about that because that's something that fuels me," Lee said. "I'm never going to let that happen again."

Good to hear – now go have a bowl of Fruity Pebbles and hit the practice field. (HT: TINNOMJ)

-Lunchtime Update: Laschout.com a blog dedicated to “lasch out at the Penn State football world, one comment at a time” is reporting that all charges against Anthony Scirrotto will be dropped in the next couple weeks. Are they right? We report, you decide. Actually we report with an obvious bias and then chide anyone that disagrees with us, but that slogan isn’t as catchy.

I'm a Lucky Charms man myself, they're magically delicious.

I love Cocoa Pebbles myself but fruity will do in a pinch.

BSD said...

Horray! I always wanted Balls of Steel.

And you get to keep them until further notice. I don't see anyone taking them away - ok, maybe the wife but that's a different story.

I'm so sorry Cory, I'll make the correction.

You know how I like to point out other people's mistakes in an attempt to make myself feel better!

Hey, you and I are alike in that way! But when it comes to English & Grammar, well, I have no room to talk.

I LOVE the Sean Lee Pick for Dallas. Like the article says, just exatly the type of player you'd like for your team. I'm glad Jerry went for the best player available!

I LOVE the pick of Sean Lee for the Cowboys. Maybe not a top need, but definitly a guy you love to have on your team. Immediate starter, blue collar worker, great leader. I expect him to beat Carpenter in no time and become Keith Brooking's replacement in 2011.
