I would've had an opinion, but I don't give a damn for the whole state of M*chigan...
Who released the Craken?
I would contribute it both to a lack of proper education, as well as the general apathy of the collective population. My father was an educator, and I attained a professional, post-graduate degree (though in the sciences instead of the arts). But in my day-to-day workings, I see a blatant disregard for grammar, even at the expense of job performance reviews. Simple things such as ignoring punctuation (including a period between two sentences) or the simple act of capitalizing days of the week are omitted. People need to take pride in what they do, but there are no consequences for simply being lazy or ignorant.
I wish I could upvote this more than once!
I don't see why on earth we would ever schedule a neutral site game. A. We don't need to (we already get a ton of media exposure without them). B. The city of Columbus gets cheated out of the economic impact of having a home game (yes, our athletic department will get paid some, but not the amount a sold out 'premium' game in the 'Shoe makes), given the influx of money for merchants, restaurants, hotels, parking, etc. C. I'm not worried about the atmosphere (anyone see the Cal game?) because we travel well, but would you want a one-off game that if lost would have no opportunity for redemption as we would w/ a home-and-home?
Of note, Vanderbilt cancelled their scheduled game with us so that the SEC and ESPN could make more money (they changed to a conference game w/ Ole Miss on the opening Thursday of college football season and a prime time ESPN spot). Ohio State was forced to cancel their scheduled home-and-home series w/ Tennessee and Georgia because our stupid conference entered into an agreement with the PAC-12 whereas each Big Ten team would play a home-and-home series w/ a PAC-12 team, and then switch to another PAC-12 team and have a home-and-home w/ them over multiple years, leaving us largely helpless in scheduling flexibility for other home-and-home series. With conference realignment, the Big Ten-PAC-12 conference agreement was cancelled before it could even take place.
I'll never forget the 9Route Jeff Greene post... That was some epic fun. I just wonder, who could keep track of ten different accounts? I'm lucky to remember passwords for one or two things.
I was wondering, how you think the OL class will finish? How many spots will be filled in all, and who do you think is most likely to fill those spots and why?
Don't know if someone posted (really don't wanna read all 309 posts) but this is now on the four letter networks front page headlines... So doesn't that mean band is now a sport?
I don't know if this matters, but I believe it wasn't a fake blowjob, but a lap dance where she faked an orgasm... And although this girl didn't didn't think it was fair changing on a bus in front of men, when I was in band, the ladies got the bus, and the men had to change outside... in October...So the guys changing on the bus is actually being fair to both parties.
Let me then be the bearer of bad news (and I only know this because as a season ticket holder, it pains me to read the schedule before 'donating' for the 'opportunity' to buy season tickets). 2015 out of conference includes perennial powerhouses Hawaii and Western Michigan (along with non-Jordan Lynch-led Northern Illinois and the away portion of VT). Moving to the 9 game conference schedule (by default weakening our strength of schedule) we host BCS-busting teams Bowling Green and Tulsa. For each of these games, for a pair of tickets (given that prices DO NOT INCREASE!!!) to a season ticket holder like myself: $372.28 (include minimum donation). Trust me, there's a lot of people putting their money where their fandom is who want to see quality opponents.
I am now dumber for having read that article... Theoretic OP downvote.
I don't know if I can narrow it to just 3, but:
1. Ohio State Football
2. Travelling (get me anywhere adventurous that's away from work, and I'm happy)
3a. Hunting (mainly whitetail, but I'm not picky)
3b. Rock concerts (metal)
I say no way am I trading Andrew Wiggins... yes, we need the low post presence more than we need a secondary (to Lebron) shooter, but given the amount of facilitation that Lebron does, his skill set in addition to scoring would be very helpful (read: also plays defense). Plus, think of the salary cap implications: you have Wiggins for four years starting w/ his rookie contract (I believe paying him less than 1/3 of what Love would demand). And after next year, Love will definitely want a max deal (making 3 players, Lebron + Kyrie as well). You need salary space for the other players, because as we saw w/ the 'Big 1/Little 2', if you don't have any extra to pay role players you're in trouble.
I don't have twitter or care how to use it (by choice, not incompetence), but surely his twitter account should be twitter-bombed or something by 11W members...
I was able to get 1 ticket to The Game for resale (already have a pair) in 15C... Unlikely any will be released for later presales
It is a joke, but also thinking .09 = 2-3 beers is naive... I have a personal breathalyzer just to ensure I don't drive drunk (I would lose my professional license if I drive drunk). I tested the breathalyzer and after drinking 6 beers in a half hour (mind you they were only Michelob Ultras) and waiting 20 minutes I only blew a .07. So a guy of Gordon's size has to do some serious drinking to blow a .09
Yeah, not a chance that it works that way... (you can select the section you want to sit in, AA or A, B, or C). If you have that choice, apparently you have some friends in high places... I like the people that sit around me, but there's a few a-holes that sit a few seats down (in the same row that I've gotten into two confrontations with, which is not my thing, especially at a game) and it's impossible to fix it. They're two middle-aged fat guys that bull down the row (usually around kick-off) and have pushed me and buddies with me forcefully down to our seats just to get through (once they did it to my 72 year old dad, and if he wasn't with me there would have been blows).
You forgot this caveat of atmosphere = priceless... Sadly I've been debating the same choice (given I spring for season tickets, so that's a huge expenditure) but there's really nothing like the 'shoe on a Saturday afternoon, let alone evening. On a side note, I always drive home afterward, even for a night game. I don't drink during the game and the alcohol will normally wear off in the 4 hours between tailgating and the drive (I keep a portable breathalyzer in the car just to be safe).
I'm in 30A row 14, come say hi sometime
Before I decided to spend a ton of money (for me) that I question each year on one of my few passions to get season tickets, I spent $400 on a pair of tickets in 12A, row 22 to a certain Wisconsin game (Braxton to Devin) in order to impress a beautiful female who has the same passion. If wasting money on a date (which, by the way, concluded with 'That was the best game I've ever seen, and it was because of you') makes me a rich asshole, there's a lot of guys in trouble...
Josh doesn't have any twitter/social media accounts, any accounts are fake accounts (according to a thread yesterday)
I think that was actually a highlight reel downing for a touchback lol. I've never seen a touchback on a highlight reel before, but it does illustrate his elusiveness (believe it would only be a safety had he advanced the ball into the field of play).
The only reason I'm slightly nervous about this game is because I'm tailgating w/ my ex for a late game and both of us are likely to be drunk as f*** and have no inhibitions or filter. But on that note: http://www.returnofkings.com/36525/you-cannot-turn-a-whore-into-a-housewife
I find it a little strange that a guy w/ those measurables and plays for a NJ powerhouse like Don Bosco Prep is only a 3-star composite 86... Wondering if he projects as an OT (since all of his highlights on the video are on defense). Would seem to have huge upside w/ that build, and seems built for good weight.
