Ripped from the pages of The Onion

And I thought Ohio State had lost the ability to surprise me.

According to 10TV News in Columbus, OSU director of NCAA compliance Doug Archie received a “courtesy vehicle” from a local dealership in exchange for a pair of season tickets to Buckeye football games. The dealership Archie received his free Jeep from is owned by Mike D’Andrea, a former Buckeyes linebacker.

D’Andrea, by the way, told the news station that sometimes he hires student athletes during the summer.

Has anybody checked Archie for tats?

    In the next episode of “If the Horseshoe Don’t Fit, You Got to Acquit”- Columbus Vice batter-rams front door of President’s Mansion trying to find Gordon’s new/substitute wife, if he has one, and her prescription, if she has one. Finding neither a wife nor a Gordon, who was in Cambridge warning the British and finalizing the last few details on his contract negotiations to become the next president of MIT.

    Gordon closed the deal by disguising himself as a cooley, by pledging to create a position for an athletic director if MIT doesn’t have one or doing away with it if it has one and by pledging to bring a car dealership to the Killian Court quad with a highest sealed bidder wins auction among AutoNation, Boston Volvo Village and CarMax, with free loaners to all National Merit finalists except, for highway safety purposes, Asians The move from Ohio State to MIT will mark anywhere between Gordon’s thirteenth and seventeenth job as a college or university president, even though it seems like his eleventy billionth.

    Now Ohio State is considering hiring private eyes to boost monitoring of student-athletes…

    Quote:
    Ohio State Athletic Director Gene Smith said Thursday he is considering hiring private investigators to strengthen the monitoring of Buckeye student-athletes.

    Smith & Gee are starting to make Damon & M. Adams look like brain surgeons…If I’m a 5* prospect, this is just what I want to hear from a school recruiting me…
