O-H...I-O!

We found, and MZone readers have sent us (and by extension, you), a couple things we couldn't resist passing on regarding our neighbors to the south.

* First up, as much as I'd like to stop with the Maurice Clarett stuff, with all the reader material we're being sent (much of it from Buck fans), to quote Al Pacino in the crappy third GODFATHER movie, "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in." Thus, we give you this picture submitted by a couple MZone readers including Molly, Mark & Gino.


* I don't know why I bother to buy the preseason mags from Athlon, Sporting News or the other mainsteam publishers with Brian at MGoBlog around. Last week he put up an excellent look at the 2006 Bucks.

* Deadspin put up a story the other day about a Tosu open practice which drew something like 28,000 truck drivers Buck fans (including the woman pictured at the left).

* Continuing the Mo'C theme, Andy sent us this moving video retrospective of his football career. Gotta love that soundtrack!

* Men of the Scarlet and Gray don their Onion cap with this piece about President Bush sending guard troops to the border of Michigan to keep the state's top high school football talent from leaving.

* Finally, we share the touching story of a young high school football player in Ohio. While the date on this news story is from last season and we wouldn't normally pass on something that old, the details really caught our eye.

This is a tale about a young football player (shown here) trying to follow in a brother's footsteps and play football just like him at Tosu. At 5'9, 276 the youngster has the size but there is just one small thing that might hold her back: the younger sib is a girl. She's Holly Mangold, "little" sister of Buckeye center Nick Mangold.

As of last year when the linked story was written, she was on the JV squad for her suburban Dayton school. No word yet if she's made the varsity squad.

5'9 and 276. So sophomore girl who is shorter then me outweighs me by almost 100 pounds? What the fuck.

It gets worse, i recently read an article about her on yahoo sports. She squats like 600 pounds, and she STARTS on her varsity team at guard. Intrigued, I googled her name, and found he MySpace. In big letters, on the front page, it said "Big Girls Give Better Head", and I couldnt see the rest because at this point, I was poking my eyes out with a fork.

LOL, Ram61

Can't spell Lloyd without 2 "L's" said...

I'd post something funny, but I'm afraid of retribution...from a 15 year old girl. Can you imagine if "she" played center, and you had to take a fucking snap from her. I'm gonna puke.

NFL Network story on Holly Mangold. Yikes.

The NFL Network piece is worth watching just for the part where she discusses going to football camp at tOSU.

At 5'9" and 276 pounds, though, she sounds like she'd be a better fit at Wisconsin.

Thanks Yost. After seeing this, just goes to show what level of recruiting tOSU is after
