LET'S GET PASTED: 3/28/12 / "28 is a Magic Number Edition"

Pasted_logo_copy_medium


Let's Get Pasted is a place where we periodically post a collection of links, quick thoughts, and hopefully one day, a haiku.

28 is a magic number. It is no coincidence that ESPN has picked the 28th of the month to bombard the sports airwaves with the most compelling 28 year old in this years draft, OSU's Brandon Weeden. Today be sure to listen to all of Weeden's interviews from different ESPN outlets from start to finish and notice the gradual transition from "gracious about questions surrounding his age" to "mildly perturbed that his age is all they seem to be talking about" to "doe popping Jim Rome as he is boxing up his stuff because Rome calls him 'old man Weeden' one too many times". Weeden is not too old to play in the NFL successfully. He performed well at the combine, and has always shown himself to be a quick study, learning Dana Holgorsen's system then teaching it to Todd Monken. Age should be a non-issue.

So here are seven OSU, two BIG 12, and two SB Nation links that if you add and multiply in the right order, give you 28. Told you it was a magic number....
