June 1, 2011
By
Jim Tressel

This is a post I didn’t want to write. However, Ohio State Football Coach Jim Tressel has broken the rules and he has paid for it with his job. When you’re asked to resign it means you were fired. I liked Tressel. He seemed to be as advertised. Trustworthy, loyal, courteous, kind, brave, clean,...

Adam Foote, Good Riddance for the Second Time

Today, Colorado Avalanche defenseman Adam Foote announced his retirement from the NHL after 19 years. For at least three of those years he was a classless bum while he played for the Columbus Blue Jackets. He even started to become the face of the franchise over Rick Nash making numerous commercials with his wife....

February 3, 2010
By

I’m not sure this is a good idea, but it was announced this afternoon that the Columbus Blue Jackets have fired coach Ken Hitchcock. Last year Hitchcock was the first coach to lead the Blue Jackets to the playoffs. My only guess is that the Jackets have been getting blown out in some of...

To all those who are regular readers of The Madrigal Maniac or just stumble by on occasion I wish you a happy new year. I believe Pryor and the Buckeyes can string enough points together to reach 20. Two touchdowns and a couple of field goals. I also think the Buckeyes defense can hold...

John Hicks is an Ohio State football legend. It is often forgotten by many just how great of a college football player he was during the early seventies. He finished second in the Heisman Trophy balloting. The last lineman to do so. He won the Lombardi Award, the Outland Trophy, and was a first...

December 24, 2009
By

Eagles player Michael Vick was voted the Ed Block Courage Award by his Philadelphia teammates despite the fact that he maimed and killed thousands of dogs. Just because he was allowed to play football again and make millions after serving a prison term does not make him courageous. It makes him lucky. All 32...
