Jonathan Majors could soon add Dennis Rodman to his ever-growing list of high-profile roles, right alongside Kang The Conqueror and Lovecraft countryis Atticus Freeman. This is per diversityreporting that Majors is in early talks to play the NBA superstar 48 hours in Vegasa new film about Rodman’s infamous trip to Sinful City during Chicago 1997-1998 Season of the Bulls. (As memorably pointed out in the 2020 documentaries The last Dance.)

Rodman requested a leave of absence from Chicago Bulls coach Phil Jackson, who was giving his star defensive players 48 hours to escape the high-pressure season in Vegas. Accompanied by then-girlfriend Carmen Electra, Rodman extended his stay well past the deadline – at which point his teammate Michael Jordan was dispatched to pick him up so they could start making NBA history again.

The film will then continue this chaotic holiday and probably fictionalize it at least in part. Announced last year, it is being developed by Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Aditya Sood, with Jordan VanDina writing the screenplay. (No word yet on who will direct—or who will end up being chosen to play Electra, Jordan, or the film’s other main character,” a nervous assistant to the GM” who develops a “surprising friendship” with Rodman.)

Majors has a busy schedule ahead of them at the moment; He is set to star in a Korean War drama dedicationnot to mention his duties in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to come Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and beyond. (And Creed III. And the coming The man in my basement with Willem Dafoe. Man is busy, is the point.)

Lord and Miller issued a statement about the film when it was first announced last August, writing: “Dennis refused to follow the herd. That made him a target and it also made him a star. His weekend in Las Vegas is full of fun and fun, but it’s also full of important questions about how public figures and workers are treated, especially when their individuality is expressed so vividly.”

The Long Night of Literatures, an international collaboration between India and 11 European countries that annually celebrates literary diversity, kicked off Thursday at the Embassy of the Czech Republic in New Delhi with a discussion on the shortened cultural distance between Indian and European literature – made possible by the expansion of publishing networks and a growing interest in translation. Organized in collaboration with the Oxford Bookstore, the lecture ‘Changing Literary Landscapes in India and Europe’ was attended by Janice Pariat, Author and Assistant Professor of Creative Writing and Art History, Ashoka University; Milee Ashwarya, Publisher, Penguin Random House India; Krisha Kops, author and journalist; Mercedes Cebrián, Spanish poet and translator; and moderated by author and translator Sutapa Basu.

Areas examined included the changing modes and formats of storytelling over the decades, with Kops saying he’s observing a “dangerous” trend of book authors mimicking and competing with social media and video platforms. This results in books that aren’t as provocative or challenging as they could be. “It’s about writing books that can be adapted to Netflix movies, or just thinking about entertainment, hitting the numbers… It’s a disturbing tendency to just think about the audience.”

Pariat responded that many societies, such as Northeast India, have rich traditions of oral storytelling that do not revere the written book as much. She added that the modern interest in audiobooks and podcasts “seems to have come full circle.” “Some parts of the world have never been interested in reading, and that’s okay…Their ways of understanding the world and consuming stories come from different sources,” she added.

The talk was attended by Janice Pariat, author and assistant professor of creative writing and art history, Ashoka University; Milee Ashwarya, Publisher, Penguin Random House India; Krisha Kops, author and journalist; Mercedes Cebrián, Spanish poet and translator; and moderated by author and translator Sutapa Basu. (Photo credits: Oxford Bookstore and Long Night of Literature)

Speaking of translation, Cebrián said there was a long-standing fear that the English language would be “the big mouth that eats everything up,” but that the Anglo-American market has power and allows ideas to be exchanged. “We used to even translate names in Spanish – William Shakespeare became Guillermo Shakespeare, for example! We don’t do that anymore, so translations also reflect how societies evolve,” she said, adding, “We keep certain names [in the translated language] identical to the original language, so the reader has to go to the trouble of looking it up [for the original effect].”

As the conversation shifted to diversity and representation at literary festivals, Pariat added a warning that writers are only typecast into certain parts of their identities. “Why should queer writers only be on queer boards or Dalit writers only on Dalit forums?” She said, adding, “Lighted festivals should be more critical, more recalcitrant and more disruptive.”

Basu mentioned the rising cost of paper in the book production cycle and challenges the publishing industry may face, which Ashwarya said the physical book is here to stay because the experience of reading one is irreplaceable. “Penguin has also done well during the pandemic and has helped us also innovate in what we publish and how we build our lists. The industry is only growing,” she said.

Dullstroom is a popular destination for Gautengers looking to spend long weekends of fun and relaxation in the ‘little drinker’s village with a fishing problem’, or to enjoy one of the many restaurants en route to other destinations.

While visitors experience the touristy vibe of this distinctive Mpumalanga town, locals are far from relaxing around fire pits and spending their days fly-fishing. Dullstroom is home to them, and home means the monotony of everyday life and its challenges.

One of them is that there is no animal welfare organization in Dullstroom. However, in true “Dullies” spirit, a group of local volunteer animal lovers have teamed up with professionals to bring the pet population under control and care for sick and neglected animals.

We asked a resident and aspiring journalist, Sean McCabe, to introduce us to the organization these locals started, Dullies Dogs, which has made a name for itself in this sleepy hollow since 2016.

It’s a Wednesday morning in Dullstroom. Two cars are parked in front of a small municipal office building in the middle of Sakhelwe township. A group of Dullies Dogs volunteers get out of the cars and prepare for the day ahead.

The first residents are slowly arriving with their dogs. Each dog is dipped for tick and flea control and then waits their turn. It’s a quick process; The dogs sleep all the time.

When they wake up, the veterinarian gives them a quick check-up before they are returned to their owners. This is the sixth spaying campaign being organized by Dullies Dogs in Sakhelwe to spay dogs in the community free of charge for their owners. Since 2016 this has grown into a popular and regular event.

Not only are the dogs dunked and clipped, but the owners walk away with a small bag of dog food. The purpose of the spaying campaign is to curb the overbreeding of dogs in the community.

“The animals are healthier after sterilization because they don’t move around as much,” said Karin Erasmus of the Pro-Life Pet Rescue, Rehabilitation and Adoption Agency.

The residents of Sakhelwe are grateful for the presence of Dullies Dogs. Martha Madonsela was recently helped when her dog Molly started scratching excessively.

“Carol brought me pills for my dog. I’m so grateful when they come check on Molly,” she said.

All of this would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of the many people involved. Funding for these rides comes from fundraisers hosted by Dullies Dogs, donations and the town’s charity bookstore.

Dullies Dogs’ assistants, Claire Taylor and Chantel Boschoff, are both locals who used to work for the local vet. Recently partnered with Pro-Life to enable Dullies Dogs to provide sterilizations.

While the drive is focused on sterilization, there are always cases of injured or sick animals that need urgent treatment as the nearest vet is 50km away.

According to Debbie Vink, one of the founders of Dullies Dogs, the organization came about because stray and unwanted dogs were roaming the town and community and they decided something needed to be done.

“Dullies Dogs has grown rapidly in operations. We started out dealing with individual cases and quickly expanded to include mass sterilizations, immersion, and a feeding program,” she explained.

In addition, they rescue and adopt animals that are in dire circumstances. For Karin, organizations like Dullies Dogs are vital.

“They recognize where there is a need and make a big difference by helping. We’re grateful we’ve been asked for support,” she said.

It’s usually a long day for the volunteers and vets, starting at 8am and ending when the last dog is handed over to its owner, but the rewards are immeasurable.
Dogs lucky enough to be cared for by Dullies enjoy a better life with their owners in their beautiful Dullies.

A word from the author

Born and raised in Dullstroom, I have learned and appreciated the importance of a close-knit, informed community. When I finished elementary school I went to Grahamstown (Makhanda) for high school and after falling in love with the town I stayed for university.

I majored in Journalism with a minor in Political Science at Rhodes University. During this time, my passion for writing turned into a passion for storytelling. I love my country.

I saw the potential in it and that’s why I’m optimistic about the future. However, this optimism comes with the knowledge that realizing this vision requires people in the right places to hold officials accountable. I want to use my passion for storytelling to tell the stories of the people who matter but aren’t considered. I want to use my passion to help my country reach its potential.

Dullstroom quick facts (www.walkersons.co.za):

1. The name Dullstroom derives from a Dutch merchant named Wolterus Dull and the Crocodile River that flows nearby. “Stroom” is the Afrikaans word for electricity. The town was originally called Dull’s-stroom but was later simplified to Dullstroom. It was also called the “place of the eternal fog” by the first Dutch settlers.
2. As many know, Dullstroom is considered the fly fishing capital of South Africa. The trout industry dates back to 1912 when Mr. HJ Gurr, the postmaster of the nearby town of Lydenburg, unexpectedly caught what appeared to be a trout in the Dorps River. Then in 1916 the first trout pups were released from hatcheries in the mountains of the Cape Winelands into several local streams. From 1927, after Gurr left the city, the local jeweler and watchmaker FC Braun took on the task of stocking the streams with trout.
3. Dullstroom is 2,100m above sea level and is one of the highest towns in South Africa. It has the highest railway station in the country – it is 2,076 m above sea level. The station is immaculately maintained and managed by a local woman affectionately known as Aunt Nelmarie.
4. Dullstroom was granted official city status on October 9, 1893 by then-President Paul Kruger.
5. The Dullstroom Inn has a log fire that has burned continuously for over 38 years. The charming country hotel also has its own resident ghost, Sergeant Larley. The story goes as follows when Sergeant Larley (a young British soldier) was injured during the Anglo Boer War. During the Anglo-Boer War he was cared for by an Afrikaans girl named Magda. The two fell in love, but when Magda’s family found out about this, they accused her of treason and imprisoned her. Heartbroken and still injured from the war, the sergeant died soon after. Magda, unaware of his fate, sat by the fire at the Dullstroom Inn for many years, waiting for her true love to return. If you stand on the corner outside the Dullstroom Inn just after sunset today, you will hear the sound of thundering hooves as the sergeant rides to rescue Magda. Anyone lucky enough to see the soldier in love is said to have eternal happiness in love.
6. Due to its relatively cool and temperate climate, Dullstroom is the only place in South Africa where Elm and Beech grow. These were originally planted by Dutch colonists.
7. Dullstroom was practically leveled by occupation by British forces on two separate occasions – in November 1900 and April 1902 – during the second Anglo-Boer War. Only two buildings remained untouched after the end of the war – today’s Rose Cottage and a house now known as the ‘Little Foxes’, near the Dullstroom Inn, which served as barracks for the British occupying officers. During this occupation, the women and children of Dullstroom were taken to a British concentration camp in Belfast.
8. A real “sugar” treat Dullstroom is one of the few places in South Africa where you can find all three species of endangered cranes, the gray-crowned crane, the blue crane and the wattled crane.

Donkeys generally appear to us as stubborn and not particularly fast animals.

However, a new study published in the September 9 issue of the journal Science now shows that donkeys spread like wildfire from Africa about 4,500 years ago, reaching Europe and Asia within a few centuries.

This shows the key role donkeys played in earlier human societies, particularly as pack animals mobilizing people, culture, and goods across arid deserts and steep mountains.

Surprisingly, where and when donkeys were first domesticated has long been a scientific mystery. Archaeological finds, as well as textual and iconographic evidence, have suggested the vast region of Northeast Africa as a possible source.

But they also pointed to regions outside of Africa, possibly in the Arabian Peninsula, or even further away in Mesopotamia.

Previous work aimed at tracing the evolutionary history of donkeys based on their genetics could not find significant support for a candidate region.

“We decided to sequence the genome of donkeys living in regions previously overlooked,” explained Ludovic Orlando, CNRS research director at the Center for Anthropobiology and Genomics of Toulouse (CNRS / University of Toulouse III Paul Sabatier) and senior Author of the study in the press release. “This should reveal important missing pieces of the puzzle.”

This provided the research team, which consists of 49 scientists from 37 laboratories around the world, with the most comprehensive genome panel of donkeys. However, mapping the genetic diversity of present-day donkeys may not have been sufficient, as modern breeding and trade may have exchanged animals across very distant regions. Therefore, researchers should also characterize the genomes of donkeys that lived in the past, using state-of-the-art technologies in the study of ancient DNA.

dr Laura Patterson Rosa, assistant professor of animal and equine sciences at Sul Ross State University, was part of the team that analyzed the donkeys’ genome as part of the study.

To the efforts of Dr. Patterson Rosa included tasting a unique South American donkey breed, the Pega donkey, which has been heavily selected since the colonization of America for its smooth locomotion – as a “gait” donkey breed – and its endurance. World and historical comparative genomic analysis has shown that the written historical accounts of the origin of this breed may not be entirely accurate. In addition, the results have elucidated high levels of genomic inbreeding, which is of concern as the maintenance of the Pega donkey may require planned outcrossing to maintain health and population diversity.

“Modern donkeys living in different regions of the world show quite strong genetic differences, especially between the African, European and Asian continents,” explained Dr. Evelyn Todd, first author of the study, in the press release.

In addition to striking geographic differences, the team found that the timing of separation between the different populations followed a clear trend, starting first in Africa and spreading to Eurasia and Asia. The researchers report an African origin around 7,000 years ago, around a time when the once verdant Sahara region was becoming one of the driest deserts on earth. They estimate that donkeys spread out of Africa at least 4,500 years ago and expanded rapidly both eastward into Asia and westward into Europe within 1,000 years at most.

The expansion was not only in one direction, but also returned to Africa. For example, as early as Roman times, donkeys were exchanged between Europe and Africa across the Mediterranean, according to the study. While this exchange went both ways and continued after the collapse of the Roman Empire, it left the most important genetic footprint in modern donkeys from West Africa.

Ancient genomes securely provide localized time points that have helped researchers track the spread of donkeys around the world. They also revealed the presence of previously unknown genetic lines. One such lineage was found in the Levant around 2,000 years ago, but likely inhabited a much larger geographic region, as researchers have been able to identify traces of their genetic heritage in modern donkeys across Eastern Europe, Central Asia, and East Asia.

In addition, the researchers show that wild donkey relatives also introduced a fraction of their genes to different regions of the world.

For Evelyn Todd, “This likely reflects the free-range nature of local donkey populations in some regions of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.”

The study clearly shows an important difference between the donkey and its close relative, the horse. Unlike horses, inbreeding in donkeys has not particularly increased in modern times, suggesting similar reproductive strategies today and in the past.

But the researchers went beyond simply tracing global patterns of donkey management techniques. They found a mule-breeding center at Boinville-en-Woëvre, a second- to fifth-century Roman site from northern France. There, breeders seem to have produced particularly inbred families of giant donkeys at a time when mules provided the labor for the shipment of military equipment and goods across an empire that stretched thousands of miles. Mating between these huge donkeys and horse females enabled breeders to produce prized sterile mules.

Here, the genetic evidence echoes the texts of Roman writers, who described how the selective breeding of animals of exceptional stature was common practice and a lucrative business even then.

“That’s the beauty of ancient DNA, providing data that allows us to test hypotheses from other classic historical sources,” Orlando concluded.

The genetic study went a step further: the limited presence of horses in Boinville-en-Woëvre suggests that either female horses for mating or donkey breeders with their huge males visit the surrounding farms. A different kind of journey, admittedly over a more limited region than that which took their ancestors outside of Africa thousands of years ago, but which nonetheless helped build the mighty Roman Empire.

Graham Ruselink, a third-year sociology student, works at the Leaning Commons as a first-year experience coordinator.




The Learning Commons is a free service for students at the University of Cincinnati (UC), provides academic coaching, writing assistance, peer facilitation, math and science support, peer tutoring, and more. The services are run by student workers who hold many different positions within the Learning Commons.

At Learning Commons, Graham Ruselink, a third-year sociology student, works as a first-year experience coordinator. Her job is to oversee many peer facilitators and ensure they are completing tasks such as lesson plans for their learning communities, weekly communication, and attendance.

Ruselink spends much of her working time with the nine other first-year coordinators. “We work together all the time, putting together weekly plans, programming emails and doing boring office tasks. Aside from all the work we have to get done, we also just spend a lot of time laughing and bonding together,” Ruselink said. “It’s always a great time together in the office – my colleagues make me happy to come to work no matter how busy that day is.”

Ashley Bruner, a third-year psychology student, also works at the Learning Commons as a peer moderator. As a peer facilitator, Bruner reports to Ruselink and spends most of her time teaching a learning community course.

Bruner’s learning communities are groups of freshmen with whom she shares a major. The peer facilitator works to provide them with tools, resources, and tricks for navigating their first year. “I’ve been a peer facilitator at Learning Commons for two semesters so far and honestly my favorite part has been just interacting with my students. I’ve made really amazing friendships with them and could see how they really felt more comfortable being a part of UC throughout the semester,” Bruner said. “I love being one-on-one with my students and just being a resource for them It’s great to be able to help make college a little less scary for my students.”

Bruner describes how she not only enjoys helping students in the Learning Commons, but also how she enjoys all the lessons students have taught her along the way. “I learned not to take life too seriously, which my students taught me very early on,” she said.

As evidence of this lesson, Bruner cites a specific recollection in which she taught a learning community to students engaged in exploratory studies. “[My students] was stressed, every single one of them,” she said. “I didn’t really know what it felt like to not know what I wanted to do with my life, so I couldn’t really relate to them about this fight. However, being able to learn from my students as they worked through without knowing their path was incredibly eye-opening.”

Ypsilanti – Eastern Michigan University has filed a lawsuit in Washtenaw County District Court asking a judge to order striking faculty members to return to work, a university official said.

The EMU chapter of the American Association of University Professors, made up of more than 500 tenured and part-time faculty members, voted 91% in favor of the strike Tuesday night after negotiations broke down.

Sticking points are salary increases and health costs, said the union and the university.

“This unlawful strike is causing and will cause permanent and irreparable injury to EMU, EMU students, non-AAUP EMU employees and the public for which there is no adequate remedy,” the university’s emergency motion for an injunction reads.

The EMU has asked the court to grant an injunction to prevent employees from going on strike in violation of the Michigan Public Employment Relations Act. The 1947 law prohibits employees of a public institution from going on strike.

Record 2021: 1-9 overall, 0-5 6A East Valley (last place)

Record 2022: Overall 1-0

head coach: malcolm nelson, 1-0 in his debut season at Tucson and overall as head coach. He is a former assistant defensive coach with the Tucson Sugar Skulls professional indoor soccer team when he played in 2019 Marcus Coleman was head coach. Nelson replaces experienced coach Richard Sanchez, who resigned from the position after one season for unknown reasons.

Remarks: Sanchez’s departure means Tucson goes from one of the most experienced coaches in southern Arizona with a career record of 162-86 (with two Sunnyside state titles) in 22 years as a head coach to a coach in his early tenure as a program manager. Malcolm Nelson, who is coaching on an interim basis, said he sees his role as a delegate and advisor to Sanchez’s staff, who opted to remain with the Badgers after Sanchez resigned. Many of the players have warmed up to Nelson and mentioned that he is not a “micromanager”. … Tucson won its opener Friday, 29-21, beating visiting Mesa Dobson, a Region 6A East Valley opponent last year. The Badgers were reclassified from the AIA to the 5A Southern starting this season. Tucson has won seven of its last eight opener games. … Tucson hosts South Mountain, coached great by Arizona Byron Evans, on September 23. The teams played at Tucson High last year with the Jaguars winning 26-20. … Another notable game is Tucson, which ends its season on Nov. 10 in Cienega, which has a former Badger coach Justin Argraves. The Cienega sophomore coach was Tucson’s coach for 10 years before transferring to the Vail School. … Tucson’s coaching staff indicated that the Badgers had no defectors after Sanchez retired. The program is primarily challenged by keeping players eligible and healthy.

Watch out for: RB Prince Mugisha, a 5-11, 185-pound junior who has good height, athleticism and durability and carries the ball out of the backfield. With two more successful seasons, his future looks bright.

Defense wins championships.

Ohio State lost to Oregon a year ago because its defense was not up to par. They lost to Michigan in a butt-whooping to put an exclamation mark on the problem. Ryan Day took notice and blew things up in the offseason, bringing in a $2 million coordinator and nearly all the new assistants, saving only future Hall of Famer Larry Johnson.

Against a top five opponent in a prime time season opener, it looks like the plan worked. While the vaunted Buckeye offense stuttered for the first 30 minutes, the Silver Bullets went about the business.

TL;DR: JUST THE FACTS, MA’AM

It was a two-part story for CJ Stroud and the Buckeye offensive. In the first, the Buckeyes scored just a single touchdown, missed a field goal, and rushed just 50 yards.

But things opened up a bit for the home team in the second round as Stroud settled in and Day reminded himself he could actually call a rushed game. The Buckeyes increased their offensive performance by 65% ​​after the break and scored two extra touchdowns thanks to Xavier Johnson and Miyan Williams.

But the story of the night is how, for the first time in ages, Ohio State was able to rely on its defenses to get the job done. Tommy Eichenberg and Mike Hall Jr. were sensational, the play call was spot on and fans could see plenty of reasons to look forward to things to come from the Jim Knowles-led regime.

HOW IT WENT

OFFENSE

They got you sweating early on, that’s for sure. Just 149 yards total offense in the first half and it seemed like Jaxson Smith-Njigba and Julian Fleming were both knocked out that things were going in the wrong direction for the country’s best offense.

The unit certainly didn’t look like the unstoppable juggernaut unveiled at the Rose Bowl nine months ago, with just a touchdown beside a missed field goal to show for their first-half effort.

Apparently Ryan Day made the right halftime speech, as the offense seemed a lot more confident in the second half, reeling off 246 yards in a much more rushing attack. Day only called 11 carries before halftime but chose two dozen in the second. Running the ball paid off as Treveyon Henderson and Miyan Williams combined for 171 yards on the floor at an average of 6 yards per clip.

The questions for this unit coming into the season were who would become the big playmakers when Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson move to the league and if the offensive line is up to scratch. Both questions were tested on Saturday night as JSN and Julian Fleming were not factors in the game due to injury concerns and Notre Dame’s defense looked like it was too much for comfort in Stroud’s face.

Emeka Egbuka emerged as the team’s leading receiver, not entirely surprising given what was expected of him, and he and the rest of the receiving corps made Brian Hartline proud of a night that wasn’t perfect but was good enough to get the job done to do . Day may need to lean more on his ground game than he would prefer given his pass-first mentality, but he clearly has the horses to get the job done on land or in the air.

It’s worth noting that Ohio State’s 21 points is its lowest total since losing to Oklahoma in 2017 and the team rushed for under 400 yards (395) for the second time in the Ryan Day era.

  1. CHOP CHOP CHOP: It took Ryan Day too long to run the ball like he meant to, but when he finally pulled the pin, Miyan Williams was amazing. Oh, and did you see that catch on the sidelines late in the game?!?

  2. Xavier Johnson: On a night when the Buckeye offensive name brands weren’t having their best showing, Johnson rose big with a crucial touchdown.

  3. CJ Stroud: There were a few throws that didn’t look good early on, but with an exhausted receiving corps, he still managed to complete 71% of his passes for 223 yards and two touchdowns. That will work.

DEFENSE

Will you check out that defense huh??? After an ugly opening drive spotted Notre Dame 71 yards and a field goal, and a 10-play, 87-yard bleeder added another touchdown early in the second quarter, the Irish just couldn’t move the ball against Knowles’ aggressive, confident Buckeye defense .

It was a revelation after last year’s puffy Ode to Mediocrity.

The players made some big games, the scheme looked just as good as advertised, and more than anything it looked like a unit built to keep Ohio State in big games regardless of what’s on the other side could happen (or not happen) Ball.

With three sacks and six tackles for losses to their tally, the Knowles unit looks poised to delight in Big Ten teams in the weeks to come, and one in particular that can keep Ohio State on track to win in November and beyond.

Consider Notre Dame punctuating 8 of his 10 drives and only 12 first downs all night. Or that Ireland quarterback Tyler Buchner started the game with eight straight passes but then completed only two of his last 10 passes.

Yes, that seems like a good start for a rebuild project.

helmet sticker

  1. Tommy Eichenberg: 9 total tackles, 2 sacks, 3 TFLs…this guy looked like he was everywhere. He looked fast, he looked confident, he looked like the defensive leader Knowles promised in the offseason.

  2. Mike Hall Jr.: 4 total tackles, 1 sack, 2 TFLs… Hall was a monster in the middle and was a big part of the reason Notre Dame averaged a paltry 2.5 yards per carry.

  3. Jesse Mirco: Yes, the punter isn’t technically part of the defense, but the big boot had Notre Dame secured against its own end zone most of the night. Four of his five punts landed inside the 20, and the average starting position for the Irish was the 17-yard line.

HAS THE DEFENSE HITTING 30% LESS THAN LAST SEASON?

Faithful listeners of The Eleven Dubcast (subscribe wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts!) will know that I’ve repeatedly dismissed the notion that Ohio state’s overhauled defense needs to be in the top 5 in the country. As good as Ryan Day’s offense was (yeah, I know that wasn’t their best game ever), Jim Knowles doesn’t need to turn the Silver Bullets into the ’85 Bears to win championships, You only have to vacuum 30% less than last season.

To put that in perspective, last season’s defense gave up an average of 372.9 yards and 22.8 points per game. It hurts to write this, trust me.

So it seemed only logical to add a new feature The debriefing each week this season to assess how well the defense is meeting that goal and at the end of the season to see if “The 30% Hypothesis” holds.

Notre Dame managed just 253 net yards in total offense, which is better than 30% less than Ohio State’s legal average last season, and just 10 points, which is ALSO better than 30% less than last year’s legal average .

VERDICT: YES, Ohio State’s defense sucked at least 30% less than last season!

JIM TRESSELS AT THE LOST POPULAR MOMENT OF THE GAME

Coach Tressel loves nothing more than to see his youngsters grow and succeed, so his team’s 20th anniversary of the 2002 National Championship was a wonderful opportunity to see some of his favorite players and enjoy the upstanding men he has always known that they could be her.

Putting on a popular sweater vest, he looked at Miss Ellen and said, “You know, it just feels right” as they left the hotel for another ride to this sacred place where he remembered the modern era of Ohio State Football ushered in .

While the premium suites aren’t quite as comfortable as his broken chair, being back on campus and feeling the energy of 106,000 friends and neighbors was more than worth it. The thoughtful staff had even stocked the mini-fridge with ice-cold whole milk (“You’re cheating yourself if you drink skim milk,” he once explained) and had warm chocolate chip cookies brought in at halftime.

The playoff was amazing all night, and the Buckeyes won against a top five team by relying on their defense and superior field position! The day didn’t go fourth like a riverboat player high on dumbbells or whatever the kids are puffing on these days.

It really felt like the universe knew just the kind of game it needed to see to make a wonderful weekend almost perfect. No heaps of that flash-and-dash stuff and running the score on a worthy opponent; just honest, sane, basic Ohio State Football.

In a near-perfect game, seeing a beloved protege fall 2-0 as head coach was the living legend’s least favorite. “It will come, Marcus,” he said to himself as CJ Stroud got on his knees to seal the victory for the home team. “Stay the course, it will come.”

WHEN WAS IT OVER

… Miyan Williams cupped it from the 2-yard line with less than 5 minutes left to give Ohio State a 21-10 lead. The Buckeyes wouldn’t cover the 17.5 point spread, but the biggest game of the weekend showed that the biggest problem plaguing last year’s team is well on its way to being solved.


NEXT: Ohio State goes from hosting College Gameday for one of the biggest games of the season to hosting a typical September midday game against Arkansas State, a Sun Belt Conference team.
