News & Notes

Two bits of news from around Ohio...

Sounds Important, But Isn't:
OSU gridders to run 4x100 at Owens Classic
The Buckeyes had this brilliant idea to put a bunch of their fastest footballers on the 4x100. Problem: most of them have never run track in their entire lives. At Drake, they got seriously waxed. 41.57 is pretty good for a high school team, but it should be damn embarrassing for the midwest's premier collegiate athletic program. My prediction: these guys will continue to suck, and the experiment won't even get to the Big Ten championships before being withdrawn.

Big News That Was More Or Less Expected:
Brandon Saine quits his high school team
The two-time defending D-1 champ and state record-holder (10.38) had a bad spring. He started training late, got hurt, and didn't enjoy it anymore. The prediction a year ago was that he wouldn't run this spring due to his status as All-Everything Running Back who signed with...yep, the historically track-apathetic Ohio State University.
