Just stuck the camera out the landing window a minute ago....as you can see the snow has just started, it appears however, that that will turn into ugly sleet and freezing rain before long.....1/10 to 2/10ths is slated to fall, making travel a mess. Not much snow but plenty of rain and some ice continues in the flatlands of western Ohio.
Meanwhile the entire state of Ohio wakes up to another BCS hangover....our Ohio State Buckeyes have lost their 3rd straight BCS game, at least this one was not to a SEC school, wasn't in the National Championship Game, and was close and respectable.
The Buckeyes came from behind to take a 21-17 lead over the Texas Longhorns with 2 minutes left last night, only to see UT drive the field and win on a broken defensive play with 16 seconds left....OSU now stands at 4-4 under Jim Tressel in Bowl Games, and 3-3(with 3 straight losses) in BCS games playing for "The Vest"...or "The Weasel" as I like to call him. The good news locally was that St. Henry grad, Senior Todd Boeckman, finally got back on the field for some extended playing time, and was by far a better QB than FreshmanTerrell Pryor, Pryor is a outstanding athlete, but just does not throw a deep ball well enough yet.....so the Ohio State University comes up short again....28 seniors, including Boeckman, finish with 4 straight Big Ten Championships(2 shared, 2 outright), but only one bowl victory, that over Notre Dame in January 2006. Hopefully we will see Boeckman and a number of other seniors play in the NFL....despite the lackluster support on the coaching front from Tressel.
Depending on the weather, I return to basketball officiating this afternoon...Sam and I are at Waynesfield for a Junior High double header....
That's about it...however I would be remiss if I didn't say "Happy Birthday" to Buck and Lin's resident state of New Mexico....and aren't you guys glad to be getting Bill Richardson back as Gov? :)
