Missing Ohio State University Football Player Found Dead Just Blocks Away From His Apartment

Filed under: ZportzR.I.P.Sad SadFootballViral: News

Kosta Karageorge's body was discovered in a dumpster near his apartment.

The Ohio State University has suffered a tragic loss this weekend, as senior defensive lineman and wrestler Kosta Karageorge's body was discovered in a dumpster in Columbus on Sunday.

The 22-year-old was reported missing five days before he was found just a few blocks from his apartment with what police are saying was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police also found a handgun in the same dumpster as Kosta's body; however, it is unclear if it belonged to him.

His mother Susan Karageorge recently revealed that he had suffered from multiple concussions and that he had sent her a text message shortly before he went missing, in which he apologized for being an "embarrassment" and said the injuries had his "head all f**ked up."

Students held a late night vigil for Kosta on campus Sunday along with members of the marching band, and there will most likely be a moment of silence in his honor at Ohio State's upcoming football game against the Wisconsin Badgers.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kosta's family and loved ones at this incredibly difficult time.

Mountain Dew Has Officially Crossed The Line With A New Doritos Flavored Drink!

This new Mountain Dew flavor should NOT be allowed to exist!

We've seen our fair share of nasty and strange flavors come and go over the years, but we think we may have found the worst of them all!

A handful of photos of what appears to be a Mountain Dew taste test at Kent State University have gone viral, as a few students got a chance to try a new flavor that is having some people running for the nearest toilet!

So how gross are we talking here?

Let's just say the new flavor in question is called "Dewitos." As in Doritos. But in Mountain Dew form. Like, to drink.

This College Basketball Player Isn't Letting Her Brain Tumor Keep Her From Living In The Moment And Playing The Game She Loves

Filed under: ZportzInspirationSad SadHealthBasketballCancer

Lauren Hill is making sure she lives every moment like it's her last.

At just 19 years old, Lauren Hill knows all too well that time is precious, and she's making the most of every single second she has left.

It was about a year when the Mount St. Joseph University freshman was feeling a bit off after basketball practice and decided to go see the doctor. That's when they discovered a cancerous tumor in her brain and estimated she only had about 12 months left to live.

However, Lauren has not only managed to stay optimistic throughout the experience, she's also viewing it as an opportunity to teach others to make the most out of every moment we have, because tomorrow is never guaranteed:

So when we heard The Best Damn Band in the Land was doing a special tribute for The Wizard of Oz's 75th anniversary, we knew it wasn't going to just be covers of "Over The Rainbow" and "If I Only Had a Brain!"

OK, so it did have both of those things, but it also had gigantic dancing scarecrows and flying witches as well as awesome fireworks and smoke machines!

Seriously, we can't wait to see what these guys do next!

Ch-ch-check out their performance (below)!

This Guy Made More than $55,000 On Kickstarter After Trying To Raise $10 For A Potato Salad, And You Won't Believe How He's Spending The Money!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueFoodGIFs

This guy's quest to make a potato salad turned into something much, much bigger!

Either this guy is some sort of Kickstarter wizard/genius, or people just REALLY love potato salad!

Like many others before him, Zack Brown thought it would be fun to create a a joke project on the popular crowdfunding website in order to raise $10 to make his very first potato salad!

But we're guessing he wasn't expecting the HUGE response he got, as he received a whopping $55,492! We're no math experts over here, but that's WAY more than he originally asked for!

Mom Gives Up Her Diamond Ring So Her Son Can Go To School!

Filed under: InspirationFamilyAmazingEducationalSchoolGIFs

diamond ring given up for sons schooling

This is equal parts inspiring and baffling.

When Ohio mom Tamika Hamilton's son needed to go to summer school, she ran into a bit of a speed bump:

She didn't have the $400 tuition she needed.

Tamika wouldn't let her son miss summer school, so she went to a school board official and said she didn't have the money upfront.

That's when Superintendent Charles Keenan told her that if she had something worth $400 the school district could hold it as collateral until she repaid the $400 bill.
