...is your friend a prince in Nigeria who just can't make the flight because he is committed to a charity event, but he will have the tickets at waiting at the gate if you provide your bank account numbers...

I hope you sell them, but why try here, like this?  It seems like you're taking advantage of the Eleven Warriors site.  If he sells them on the site, then I hope he spends at least a hundred on merch.

I don't see how that happens.  Oklahoma would have beaten, Baylor, TCU, and Oklahoma State.  Who has Notre Dame beaten if they win out?  Stanford?  Temple? I just don't see them getting in ahead Oklahoma in your scenario.

Shoulders are "funny" joints.  Looked like he got a really good ding last week.  I wouldn't be surprised if he can't last the first half, and that would be too bad.  Even with the rehab this week, when he starts going at game speed in that weather, I think it's going to hurt something fierce.  It could be a question of whether playing in this game is worth the risk of pro career.  Hope the best for the kid, but this is going to be an interesting side story to the game.

Dear OSU Faithful,

Thanks for going to church.  I love it when you go to church.  But please understand that my purposes are deeper than you can comprehend.  So, if you want the secret knowledge or to know the plan for your life, then you should look beyond the football field.  And maybe stop blaming me for all the "bad" things that happen to happen to your team.  Some guy from Georgia did that last week, and now I'm going to get Mark Richt fired just because I can.

I believe if you meet certain criteria for exposure and symptoms, then you are eligible for some good benefits.  My dad has little tumors all over his body that I'm sure are from agent orange but he won't get tested.  I figure that you risked your life and ate some nasty chemicals and earned the benefits that Uncle Sam is willing to give you.  Best wishes and thanks for serving.

So sorry to hear about this.  Hang in there, because things will look up soon.  I don't know exactly what you do, but if it was me, then I would look at what I needed for retirement- how is the 401k and all that.  Maybe it's time for early retirement and vacation. If you're good at what you do, as it seems you are, then I would take the severance pay and look to retire or look to consult in your field.  29 years is a long time, and I'm sure you've developed some excellent skills.  After you sign the papers, make sure you're employer knows you're available for contract work and the like.  I resigned from a company about ten years ago, and I've been consulting for them ever since.  Best wishes, my friend.  Let us know how it works out.

I don't think it matters much anymore.  Ive used both.  I like the iPhone much better.  I've never used a screen protector and it's been in my pocket with keys and no scratches.  I use an iPad and macbook so it makes sense for me to use iPhone.  Strangely enough, I use microsoft software on my apple devices.  I love one note and use it for most of my work.  I like iTunes and the sync ability of my media is great- i love that my photos are shared automatically between devices.  There was a time when iPhone and droid each had things that they did better than the other, but I think the gap is closing.  The ease of use with media and the ability to easily use my phone as a remote control for my tv and projectors is great for what I do.  If you have an iPad or macbook that you actually use for producing something for work, then the iPhone is a no brainer.  If you don't then maybe android is for you.

Comment 21 Sep 2015

I think you're right.  At first I was worried about the coaching changes, and certainly there's still some issues to be worked out.  But I think the bigger issue is that opposing coaches are smart guys, as well.  Seems like they have identified a primary weakness in the O-line blocking schemes.  The bad guys sat around all summer watching film on us and trying to figure out how they could be the guy to take us down and get bank or a better position for doing it.  We are talented enough that it hasn't phased us yet, and I'm pretty sure our coaches have the answer. I'm not worried.  We have great coaches and we have some of the most talented young men in the world wearing scarlet and gray.  Wait until Dantonio tries this crap in the Shoe...we'll be ready.

Comment 19 Sep 2015

My theory is that Herman brought something to practice each day that's missing.  Top level coaching is so mental, and I keep seeing two quarterbacks that have regressed in their mental management of the game.  I also think that maybe the O-line isn't getting coached up the way they used to because their coach is now tasked with a much larger load of planning during the week.  I would guess that Warriner's time with the players during practice has been reduced so that he can script drives, look for targets, etc.  I really think the coaching change is the real deal, and I don't know how anyone thought things were going to be a-ok when you get a new play caller, new qb coach for your three heisman qb's, and completely change the duties of your O-line coach. We should have seen this coming.

Comment 18 Sep 2015

I agree. My son isn't playing. It's not worth it. And that's the long term problem that football is going to have...there's lots more parents like us. I live in Mansfield- Lexington local schools.  They had almost 70 boys go out for high school soccer team. Football, as much as I enjoy it, is going to have to change to survive.

Comment 11 Dec 2014

M Man, I was worried that were no more sane michigan fans. I read mgo regularly. They are getting shrill re the coaching position, and might go completely off the charts crazy when Harbaugh says "no thanks". Extreme damage has been done through their- as you wisely put it- facilitation. Maybe Brian doesn't want to admit his role and is doubling down with the Harbaugh push. At any rate, they seem to have lost touch with reality over there. 

Comment 09 Dec 2014

I think we're better coached on the defensive line and have the time to do some good scheming there.  My main concern is whether or not the o-line, especially center position, can hold up to AL.  I have some serious doubts re the o-line in this game, because they haven't faced the strength and speed of AL.  I remember the PSU game all too well.  

We could be toast if Jones doesn't get some time to throw.  Do we roll him out?  I don't know if he's fast enough for that.  I don't think we're going to be able to score on them like we did with MSU or WI, so I'm expecting a relatively low scoring game with our punter making the difference for a win.

Comment 04 Dec 2014

Am I the only one that has a problem with a coach interviewing for a job during such an important period of the season?  I'm sure many of you have been involved in the whole job hunting process and my experience has been that it affects my my performance at my current job.  If one of my guys was actively searching and interviewing for other work during a critical stage of development for my operation, then I would be highly motivated to, first off, have a very serious sit down with him and, second, conduct a very serious search for his replacement.  I guess maybe in the coaching world this okay, but it seems off to me.

Comment 15 Nov 2012

The wiscy defense can keep our offense in check?  Really?  I don't see that.  I also don't see Ball having more than 80 yards.  Isn't the wiscy middle linebacker out with ham string injury?  I know tOSU fans are a little crazy some times, but I see nothing on the opposing team that frightens me.  Where do they have someone on the field who outmatches us?  Anyone?

Comment 04 Oct 2012

We will be ready. We only have one weak spot and that's at linebacker. These guys that think making brax throw is their best chance have another thing coming. The kid can throw. Where is Nebraska better than us other than linebacker?  The coaches will be ready. They crowd will be jacked. The team will be angry about last year. We win by two tds at least. 

Comment 03 Aug 2012

It's the olympics.  You do realize that we won by over 80 points right?  You show sportsmanship by not shooting 3s in the second half.  It's common decency and respect.  I get it...win.  But when you win by 80+ and you're still jacking up 3s in the second half that's just plain rude.

Comment 03 Aug 2012

Two things.  Well three.  First, thanks for the site- really enjoy it. 

Second, I don't think finding a Harvin is a mistake by Meyer.  It's a different strategy than Tressel, for sure, but not a mistake.  I think it reflects the different level of aggressiveness that Meyer brings.  Tressel says let's just work with what we have.  Meyer says let's coach these kids up to what we need to win.  Tress was great, but he did not demonstrate that kind of aggressiveness.  I always got the feeling with Tress that he was thinking, "well we probably couldn't make that play work with our personnel so let's stick with Dave- everyone can do it".  Know what you need to do to win and go get the players you need.  If you don't have one on the roster now, then train one or two of them. 

Finally, the USA men's bball team was a classless disgrace yesterday.  Coach K says, we stopped the fast breaks in the fourth quarter.  But that's just not sincere.  Here's an idea to maintain some sportsmanship- how about stop shooting threes?  46 three point attempts and he claims that was fine.  He's a stupid stuck up Dukie wanker and I hope we stomp on them...but not by 80 points.

Comment 11 Jul 2012

That was great.  Thanks guys.  I can't wait until tOSU and umich surprise people this year.  I think we're going to be solid this year.  Great talent.  Great coaching.  New schemes for opposing teams to figure out.  I think umich vastly over achieved last year and this year reality will sit in with at least four losses.  Can't wait...
