Korrio’s work on sports and head injuries is a good step

One of the companies in our portfolio, “Korrio”:https://korrio.com/, is bringing out tools to allow “parents to monitor the brain health of their child athletes”:http://www.techflash.com/seattle/2012/01/startup-korrios-focus-on-head-injuries.html. This is a great step, I wish this had been around when we had young student […]

Every piece of sporting equipment will be instrumented soon

“Rich writes about his biking obsession”:http://www.tongfamily.com/archives/2012/01/bike-bike-bike/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=bike-bike-bike, I had no idea that you could get power-sensing pedals those days. Guys at Cornell are putting “accelerometers in golf clubs”:http://arxiv.org/abs/1001.0956. Many many groups have put accelerometers in football helmets to study concussions. The […]

Where are the great sports apps?

Recent app trials

Gearing up for football…

CFN’s Big Ten Preview is up. OSU gets the requisite amount of love. Though OSU needs some defensive players to surprise to achieve the promise of the team. OSU picked to finish first at Media Day. Here are my hopes […]

2000 and counting…

I didn’t note this yesterday tho many did — 2000+ days since OSU has last lost to UM, as the counter on the Dispatch page constantly advises. Still haven’t fully recovered from the shame of the Cooper years but an […]

Back from the Fiesta Bowl
