I live in Colorado. Everyone here thinks the Buckeye Leaf logo is a Pot Leaf. He doesn't want folks to think he's on the wacky weed, I'm sure.
I was thinking along your lines of throw early, run late. Either way, it's only one week away and I can't friggin' wait!
You're a poet and don't know it!
I knew Andy as a goofy middle-schooler. Great family. I was so happy for him when he finally got the chance to contribute. He was always a competitive kid.
I don't believe it was all about slavery...it was about what most wars are about, power and control. Industrial North and their textile mills dependent upon the agricultural South and their cotton fields.
The South was like a cotton cartel, and the North had to deal with it. Plantain owners and Industrialist were at war regarding who had the $$ and power in this country. Slavery was the plantation owner’s competitive advantage. So was it "about" slavery. No. It was about power and greed and it was the disgusting and unethical use of slaves which came into play.
Also, I'm all for preserving history, for the sake of not repeating it. While I believe the confederate flag is insensitive to the decedents of slaves, it should not fly over a state capitol because it is a symbol of rebellion against the United States, it is treasonous. It says "I'm part of the United States...sort of, I'm actually still fighting a 100 year war against the United States". This is what I most despise about the flying the confederate flag. It is a symbol of war against the United States of America and an embarrassing part of our history.
Now, please don't ban me :)
Loving Cardale! Nice that Tim May played right into it for him.
Seriously...with the money I save on cable, I have a really good time hanging out with friends at the sports bar.
Ybor City. ...or was that sarcasm
Good cigars :)
I'm thinking someone wants to apply for that open RB coaching position at tOSU! eh, Coach Wilcher?
Perhaps I should not have used the sarcasm font
I live near Boulder, CO and while it's all Broncos all the time, I work with many CSU grads that are very football crazy about their team. I got a lot of "you really think they can win?"
Mostly PAC-12 band-waggoners. My kids wore their Buckeye gear to school that Monday, and they informed me that night they were the only tOSU fans in the building and they got a lot of middle school smack talk. I told them I was proud they represented and that they would feel much better the next day. Needless to say...they got their smack-talk revenge. :)
I even supplied them with some good one liners to pull out on the haters ("Oh Hey, I think EZE just blew through the OR defensive line and scored ANOTHER touchdown!"). It was a good day for them. Middle school is rough!
I got quite a few congrats at work...like all Buckeye fans, I wear the colors loud and proud.
Uh...no. The guy that invented the Holiday Inn Express stayed at Cardales house!
Dude is a perfect fit for the Nebraska, culture.

The sound I heard every time tOSU snapped the ball:
Troy Smith fits in the equation somewhere....
I like the Buckeye dude's car. How about someone photoshop an attractive Buckeye fan with his car?
I want OSU to have an e-sports team! Largest athletic department in the country needs one of those!
I've been to two Sugar Bowls (one the Nat'l Champ Game) and you are not getting a hotel for $100...Not sure how far outside the city you would need to stay, but man. Bowl game travel is not cheap.
I think CSU or Oregon State should go after Tressel.
VaTech plays a lot of Freshman. Their first "real" game (not the artificially confidence boosting FCS home beating) will be at The Shoe. At night.
We have this game, completely.
Nebraska plays McNeese State on Saturday, an FCS school. Pelini on the talent of FCS programs: “There are some FCS schools that could beat a lot of lower-tier Division I schools. That’s been proven time and time again.”
Uh, yea. I think Michigan certainly knows this.
