ESPN’s golf forecaster has Hunter Mahan winning the AT&T. One problem: it takes into account how the golfer has performed over the last five times a given tournament has been played. This tournament has traditionall been held at Congressional where Mahan has performed well in it but just missed teh cut at the U.S. Open. Translation: predictions are fun but you’d probably have a better chance at guessing DeShawn Stevenson’s current BAC than predicting the winner of a golf tournament. (ESPN)
Related, OSU has six golfers participating in the event: Peter Uihlein, Mahan, Rickie Fowler, Bo Van Pelt, Michael Bradley, and Chuckie Three Sticks. (ESPN)

Josh Fields announced on Tuesday that he’s headed to Japan to play baseball. Bummed for him that it hasn’t worked out over here but this is a pretty cool opportunity.
He then tweeted this which, for all I know, might mean “screw Joe Crede and his Frank Robinson-like glove that never allowed me to jump to the Show.” Or it might just mean “Hi all of Japan, I can’t wait to be there!!”
Hilarious (and awesome) shot of Justin Blackmon with Olivia Hamilton, the girl he befriended last Fall who has leukemia. Hat tip to Gavin Lang for tweeting this out. Good stuff.
I think the West Virginia marketing department has toasted champagne at work every day since Bill Stewart “resigned” from West Virginia. The video editing department is probably pissed though for the amount of time it took to make this without including explicit language. More on this later today…
