NICK SABAN'S COMMENTS ABOUT OSU WERE LESS THAN DEROGATORY

Nick Saban
I logged on to Twitter the other evening only to find myself bombarded by tweets regarding some so-called derogatory comments about the Ohio State football team by Alabama head coach Nick Saban.

Buckeye fans were absolutely livid over words uttered at the SEC spring meetings in Florida by the four-time national championship winning coach, calling him names that shouldn't be repeated on this forum — or anywhere else for that matter.

I'VE BEEN USING FACEBOOK WRONG ... UNLIKE MR. GIOVANNI STRASSINI

Strassini (middle)
Wait ... instead of posting on Facebook that I am a sports columnist for The Bryan Times, I could've just easily created a persona as a former star athlete for one of the most historic college football teams in the country? 

And ... and ... people would offer to have me appear at their high-class (rubber chicken) functions for photos and autograph sessions with the die hards? Wow! I have not been maximizing my Facebook experience at all.

HAVE TO AGREE WITH COOPER ... ORLANDO PACE 'WAS THE BEST'

Orlando Pace
Many in Buckeye Nation know my thoughts on former Ohio State head football coach John Cooper's tenure in Columbus. 

I believe it's a travesty that he's a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.

Sure, I haven't agreed with just about anything he has said or the tactics he has employed in the past, but one item the coach and I are in absolute agreement on is how great we feel former Buckeyes left tackle Orlando Pace was during his career — not only in Columbus, but in the NFL, as well.
