• Fun to read a Mason Rudolph conversation with OSU staff from back in 2014: 

With two games remaining, the Cowboys needed one win. Gundy, who had been reluctant to burn Rudolph’s redshirt after Walsh’s injury, needed a quarterback.

“If you want to play, we’ll start you,” Gundy remembers saying. “If you don’t want to play, I certainly understand.”

“I’ll play,” Rudolph answered, without hesitation.

“Are you sure?” Gundy asked. “It’s going to burn your year.’”

“Coach, I want to play,” Rudolph responded. “I came here to be the quarterback. I want to play.”

Warren Buffett’s mentor gave him some advice on anger: 

Forty years ago, Tom gave me one of the best pieces of advice I’ve ever received. He said, “Warren, you can always tell someone to go to hell tomorrow.” It’s such an easy way of putting it. You haven’t missed the opportunity. Just forget about it for a day. If you feel the same way tomorrow, tell them then—but don’t spout off in a moment of anger.”
