Two items to start the week off here:
1)Brutus Buckeye Burger---from Wendy's.
Wendy International Inc. is planning to debut a sandwich next month named after the Ohio State University mascot. The burger -- available at 125 central Ohio restaurants -- will feature a quarter pound of beef, sweet relish, mustard relish, tomatoes, bacon, lettuce, onion and American cheese on a roll...
...The nation's third-largest burger chain plans to add the Brutus Buckeye Burger to the menu Aug. 28 and offer it through the football season. The company also plans to offer a Fix n' Mix Frosty with mini Buckeye peanut butter and chocolate candies.
2)George O'Leary, as told by the great Whit Watson
Watson hosts a sports roundtable show called Sports Talk Live on the Sun Sports television network, and visited Central Florida football coach George O'Leary for an interview to be broadcast near the start of the season.
Lots of good info in Whit's blog about how O'Leary handled the resume scandal that swiftly terminated his hiring at Notre Dame, some anecdotal tales from friends about plane flights gone bad, a humorous childhood incident and more.
Oh, and his summer retreat in Lake Oconee, Georgia shares lakefront access with none other than coaching peers Frank Beamer of Virginia tech and Ralph Friedgen of Maryland.
It's a good read.
