BTN LiveBIG: Ohio State’s build-a-brain lab

With apologies to Dr. Frankenstein, it seems there’s someone at The Ohio State University who might deserve the title “Modern Prometheus.” Biological chemistry and pharmacology professor Rene Anand claims to have grown the most complete human brain in the world to date, one that is roughly as mature as that of a five-week-old fetus. The lab-grown organ is the size of a pencil eraser and contains 99 percent of the genes found in a standard human brain, Anand said.

Think of it as the nit that will be picked at—over and over and

Watch Ezekiel Elliott photobomb Nicki Meyer's on-field selfie

So, it turns out, it was Ezekiel Elliott, not Urban Meyer, doing the photobombing Saturday afternoon at Ohio Stadium. [ MORE: Watch OSU usher recreate Miller spin move | Is OSU using QBs correctly? ] At first glance, it looks like Meyer, after completing his BTN postgame interview, photobombs his daughter Nicki’s on-field selfie with the star Ohio State running back. That’s how we originally reported it in this post and on social media. Not the case. Nicki tweeted Saturday night that the photobomber was, in fact, Elliott, despite the running back posing for the picture before the head coach
