Grew up in a small town, went to OU and now buy coal for a large utility. I used to work at a power plant, now I buy nearly 20M tons per year. I have the largest CO2 footprint of ANYONE on 11W and I like Bacon probably more than you.

Yeah, I went to that game.  If I remember correctly, it was a nice day with a slight breeze.  Maybe 70F-75F in the 'Shoe.  It was a total beat down.  I went to the game expecting a decent test, but it became a laugher real quick.  I immortalized the game day ticket (with the score on it) by placing it on my bar and covering it with resin.  Maybe a million years from now, someone will find it and say, "Yeah, Mark May is a ass-hat."

I agree. He made things right by apologizing and signing some balls for him.  Sometimes, the reaction and subsequent action(s) tells us more about ones character than we would expect. In this case, he didn't have to apologize, but it was the right thing to do.

It seems like they care less about making the right call and more about not making the field referees look bad.  By restricting the flexibility of what can or cannot be reviewed, they pigeon-hole themselves into bad calls.  Apparently, on this one they could only review whether or not there was contact, not "who" inititated the contact or if the receiver came back in bounds as soon as possible (hate to give Mark May credit on this one).

That is tough.  I feel for you, I really do.  I've been to 4 birthday parties at the Mouses House and each and every time I walk out of it with the one thing you forgot to mention: some virus that can't be cured by modern medicine. Usually the stomach kind that hits you at 3 AM and hangs on to destroy what is left of your r weekend.  

Wear gloves and a mask.

Blue or Red in the White House, there is no other country in which I would want to live. That's why the flag has those colors.

Did you just wake up?  Yes, the Sausage King.  I see you are new here.  Welcome to the site.  All reverence to BACON. If you don't like bacon, you are wrong.

Birthdays suck after about the age of 25.  it is then that you realize there is nothing good about them.  in your twenties it takes a few hours to recover from physical activity. In your thirties, it takes a couple of days.  When you hit forty, you don't even think about doing it.  As I approach fifty, I wake up and hurt and don't even know why.  Birthdays generally suck, but..... they are better than the alternative!

I disagree.  If our Buckeyes win out, we are in.  That's all we need is a chance again.

This house is with you on Fargo.  Don't blame me if I don't eat hamburger for a couple of weeks.

Comment 24 Oct 2015

Nice Monty Python before 6 AM!  C'Mon, we don't really think Rutgers throws up 27 points on us do we?  I'm thinking something more like 35-13.  A nice efficient game. At least that is what I want to see.

..... and his son.  Although not the stellar linebacker, I believe he did start one year. I will always remember Pagac with his lower lip extended due to a tobacco product residing there.

Trust an opposing teams fan for directions?  I'll take my chances with Waze thank you.  Although I am not going this weekend, I would use that App and zombie myself into Bloomington with the help of others.

Comment 28 Sep 2015

Yeah, the Korean War Pig is amazing.  If you want a huge burger though, get to Thurmons in the German Village by 4:30.  Get the Great 3 with Bacon.

Recommend the Ocean Club at Easton.  I prefer the Blackened Snapper but it is all good.  If you have to do steak over there, hit up Smith & Wolensky. Very good steaks.  Another option is to let your local guy pick.  

Comment 22 Sep 2015

I wonder if anyone uses "Lunatic Fringe" by Red Rider for its entrance/sports song?  I can't recall hearing it and it sure has a intro.  Also, I wonder if anyone from OSU in the media field reads these boards?

Comment 20 Sep 2015

Love the Scanners reference.  1981 was a long time ago, but if you yield that power time stands still. That or you make someone's head blow up.  I totally agree with the defensive statement, they are winning games for the team right now. For some reason (house money?) the offense seems unfocused.  It could be that we experienced such a rally around Cardale last year that just playing normal seems poor.  The turnovers do worry me though, it didn't look like they were 'quality' ones as a result of a great defensive play.

oh well, keep winning and keep getting better.
