Big Tentacles: Lots of Jim Tressel and Ohio St,plus Pat Fitzgerald, and...a Montreal Screwjob?

(Big Tentacles is the SWRT look at the Big Ten and the schools it not-so-secretly covets.) 

Why is this mascot smiling?


"Ohio State is Screwed." Because Clay Travis says so. Shut up, Clay. (ClayTravis.net)

The last refuge of a scoundrel.  So what does an Ohio State blogger do in response to the Jim Tressel scandal? Complain about the hypocrisy of the NCAA's rules on the amateur status of college football players, of course. (Eleven Warriors)

This behavior's not unique. A look at past shenanigans at Ohio St. during the Tressel Era. (M Go Blog)

Place your bets. Surprise! They're already making predictions on what the NCAA will do to Tressel and Ohio State. (Off tackle Empire)

NON-OHIO ST. FOOTBALL

Irish ban hydraulic lifts. Notre Dame decides to ban placing videographers hydraulic lifts at football practice after a student was killed after falling off one last season at a practice. (Rivals.com)

Waiting for the Day. Former Wisconsin left tackle Gabe Carimi talks about preparing for Wisconsin's Pro Day. (Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel)

Pat Fitzgerald vs... a pelican? Only in Marchinfornication, of course. (Black Heart Gold Pants)


BASKETBALL

Albom on the Wolverines. Mitch Albom comments on Michigan's basketball success this year. Shut up, Mitch. (Detroit Free Press)

Level up. Iowa guard Matt Gatens looks forward to taking his game to "the next level" in his senior season next year. (Iowa City Press-Citizen)

That doesn't help Gatens in Marchinfornication, however. Herky Hawk beats Gatens in the ring via Montreal Screwjob. That's what Gatens gets for modeling his professional wrestling career after a coward who disgraced his country so badly by going AWOL while in the Marines...twice. A coward so vile that I refuse to even type out his name just to strike it out,  like I do Ryan Mallett.  (hint: R***y O***n) (Black Heart Gold Pants)
