I just learned of this new annual publication by Maple Street Press called IRISH KICKOFF 2011 -- and it's produced by Pat Misch who authored the popular blog called Blue-Gray Sky.

Ohio State offered to "vacate" all of their victories last years and to go on probation for the next two years. But, they would not give back any of their bowl money from last year's Sugar Bowl.
Here's some of the media coverage the past 24 hours on the troubles facing the Buckeyes -- you'll note the different perspectives:
