Ohio.com has stepped up its sports coverage with the resurgence of two blogs: Varsity Letters and NewsFlashes.
The former has great recruiting updates. In fact, it posted the story about Adriean Payne before me. The latter has a new author to give you updates about the hated rivals. That way Kent State fans can stop lurking over here.
To be sincere, I am more than happy to have Kent State fans post their thoughts over here. My blog traffic nearly doubled this March, compared to March 2008, and I credit a lot of that to Flashes fans.
For what it's worth, Pat McManamon's blog is Ohio.com's most popular. He does a great job with frequent updates, sound opinions and is one of the best self-editors I have seen.
My all-time Internet favorite, of course, is Bill Simmons. His material can be a boost during boring classes.
Tom Gaffney wrote about Mike Thomas, whose size has not prevented him from becoming one of the conference's better linebackers.
The Blue-Gold game is Saturday at noon in the Stile Field House.
Warren Lynum II has a Figure Four on the AK-Rowdies Bracket Challenge. He leads by 11 and has North Carolina winning it all.
