Anyone who was within hearing distance of our apartment, or following me on Twitter, got to witness the absolute upheaval of my emotions tonight while I watched the OSU game. At the end of it all, as heartbroken as I am over the loss of the game, and more importantly, the loss of women’s basketball coach Kurt Budke and assistant coach Miranda Serna, I kind of think that ISU deserved to win that game. We played horribly. Whether it was just our time to lose, a bad night caused by the emotions of losing members of the OSU family, or a stupid fluke, ISU out-played us. It’s been a hell of a year for OSU football and guess what? It’s not over yet.

A few baseball-related notes: Justin Verlander won the AL Cy Young, Clayton Kershaw won the NL Cy Young, and four Giants pitchers got votes. Congratulations to our starting pitchers, who basically carried the team this season.

Darren Ford got DFA’d.

  1. Sorry about the loss, but the loss of the coaches is even worse. Kinda puts things in perspective. Wish we still had Jonathan, but Timmy and Cain and Vogey and Bum will get the job done this year. Who do you like as number 5?

    • Not Barry Zito. Does that make me an awful person? I’ve never been a fan of his – even before I was a baseball fan – and I’m just not that impressed with him. I don’t know who I’d like to see in the 5 spot. I would almost rather watch Eric Surkamp. He got knocked around a lot in that last game but when he was on, he was ON.
