He is so good, has evolved into one of my favorite writers. He's good on Twitter too.

Yeah, he is really freaking talented.

I agree, he really has been on a roll, and his work this summer is underviewed.

This appeals to a much broader audience and I hope more people read this one as a result.

Fantastic approach to the topic in this piece.

His piece this summer after Tressel was canned was one of the 10 greatest columns I've ever read in my life.

I'm ashamed to say I had not heard of him before. But, having read that column, I'll definitely be on the lookout for more of his stuff. And I now follow him on twitter.

Dig up his article on Mo Clarett.

And his piece on Tressell after he retired is the best thing written about the whole mess.
