Former Ohio State bench warmer and blogger Mark Titus’ new book Don’t Put Me In, Coach will finally be available on bookshelves and at Amazon.com on March 6.
Although Mark was never a star on the court at Ohio State, he did develop a cult following on his blog, ClubTrillion.com. On the site, Mark wrote many hilarious articles about his time at Ohio State and also about other topics like pro wrestling, mustaches, and Greg Oden’s penis.
Mark named his blog “Club Trillion” from the basketball term “a trillion,” where a player only plays for one minute and gets zeros in the other 12 statistical categories on a box score. Mark wasn’t very good and didn’t get much playing time so he tallied up plenty of trillions during his career.
Club Trillion became very successful — it has 3.9 million views to date — and it eventually landed Mark a writing job at Bill Simmons’s website Grantland, where you can read an excerpt of his book.
Don’t Put Me In, Coach is mostly about Mark’s career at Ohi

The Ohio State men's hockey team likely ended its season Saturday night with a 4-2 loss to Notre Dame in the CCHA playoffs. Sean Duddy and Danny Dries scored but OSU's 2012 slide continued. The Buckeyes fell to 1-11-4 in the calendar year and lost in the first round of the league tourney for the second year in a row.
It's no secret the second half of the season didn't go the way the Ohio State men's hockey team wanted it to.

The Ohio State women's basketball team shook off cold shooting and 21 turnovers, getting a pair of defensive stops in the final minute to preserve a 57-48 win over Michigan in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament.
