A giant inappropriate snow sculpture? Better fire Jon Waters!

Comment 15 Jan 2015

Thank you for the kind words. It was a rough year, and it was great to help the team go out on top!

You're the best! Just post whenever the sounds of the game is up, a bunch of us in the band wanted to see it!

Comment 07 Jan 2015

I wish it was more than just the players, theres a lot of band and cheerleader parents that would like to go as well, and personally my Dad couldn't make the sugar bowl (cost reasons) and is only going to the national championship because I emptied my bank account to help pay for his airfare (he was able to scrounge a ticket up cheaply somehow). This is my last game and I couldn't imagine him not being there. Wish someone would go to bat for us like Urban did!

Nick Polak is an idiot. Perfect example of why you shouldn't make blind, arrogant online comments without doing your research. And he's their recruiting guy at BSD? Ouch. So glad we have had a long line of great recruiting guys here from Alex to Birm #ThankYouBasedGod

This isn't something to joke around about with your friends. It is one of many closely guarded secrets that should never have found its way into the public. You don't understand what you are doing/saying, just like everyone else not involved with this. The fact that you are apparently proud of yourself for "having fun with this" is sickening. You will never understand, and I will not try to explain it to you

Deano got some of it correct, there are also other pairs of bandsmen who run through the end zone with other various mascots, and sometimes with nothing at all. I can't really explain it more than that, its just a tradition we have, and we always do it after we score during the fight song that is subsequently played

As someone who has never parked out of place in his entire (still ongoing) experience here, I've still received about 10 tickets from OSU (maybe 2 before they sold the rights to CampusParc) and I can say with near certainty that CampusParc was at fault here. They employ idiots who are using brand new license plate scanning technology that they don't know how to use or haven't worked the bugs out of yet. I have never paid a ticket I have received because it was a pretty simple manner to argue them with facts and evidence. I think Jeff either WAS parked illegally (I don't care if you're a player or not, if you were told to still get a pass he should have gotten one) or he is unaware of the appeal process, because as I mentioned it is quite easy to appeal these tickets. If you park incorrectly on public roads however, or a business that employs shamrock towing (I've heard the stories) good luck getting out of that one!

The other great thing about CampusParc being so annoying is you can just not pay the ticket. Unlike how it used to be, OSU can't put an academic hold on your account for not paying your tickets and it isn't the city so they can't force you to pay when you re-up on registration or your license. All that would really happen is your credit score going down? I'm not sure. But I know of plenty of people who just don't pay them because there's nothing they can really do to you

All I know is if I had the opportunity to work extremely hard and get free school, I would take that and never complain. I already work extremely hard every day and I'll walk out with a piece of paper that says I'm entitled to make this (   ) much money at my next job and 50,000 dollars of debt, just like the millions of other college students before me. I never understood this push for more reward. Every college student in the history of college has been taken advantage of, thats how the college model of business works. They make money off of you in exchange for a future career and success, so that hopefully you can pay forward and send your kids to college without loans, just like these athletes get to go do. I'd give anything to have the opportunity that a scholarship athlete or student has. You sign away your rights when you agree to attend a university, it's not like anyone was being led to believe any differently
