Holy crap, DJ.  The story of Phoebe is absolutely heartbreaking and depressing.  Granted it was well written and captivating, and should be required reading for everyone.  But, probably ruined my day, so thanks for that.  You need to give a disclosure to the effect of, "yeah this is going to win a pulitzer, but it will wreck you if you read it."

Nick + John + Radio= Super Jack-wagons.

Nick + John + Coach Herman + Radio = Hilarious.

You said...No I didn't.  Yes you did.  No I didn't.  Yes you did.  No I didn't.  Well I was first.  No you weren't.  Yes I was.  Well you were wrong.  No I wasn't.  Yes you were.  But you said.  No I didn't.

We use apple tv.  No monthly subscription and I get a cable news with it, PBS, and a bunch of other stuff.  You can get showtime with your apple tv.  I think it's $10/month.  I used it to watch homeland and it was worth it.  We just got tired of paying $60+/month for cable.  I buy the shows I want- four or five a year on iTunes and I'm all set.  Money is tight for us or we would have just kept the cable, but $60 matters to me.

Dude took the meds.  Not a big deal.  I think he would be stupid not to.  Not sure why they just don't regulate it and allow for it post injury/surgery.  This is the same way that the cycling stuff came out a few years ago.  A couple "shady and unbelievable" people.  Crazy news stories.  Then finally the damn breaks, and cycling is a much bigger deal than the NFL on a global level.  The truth will come out and it won't matter.  Listen, you're really naive if you think 80% of the NFL isn't doing PEDs.

Go Bama!  They're gonna curb stomp those arrogant douche bags from Lansing.  I don't get all this, "Let's pull for the BIG team."  Screw that.  Everyone knows Dantonio is an arrogant prick looking for a reason to be butt hurt so he can get his team to buy into the under dog and revenge card- sophomoric leadership.  And Cook...LOL.  Let's stop pretending that a good MSU helps us.  The Jackwagons from Lansing need taken down a few pegs and Bama is just the team to do it.

I'm with the OP on this.  I really feel like ND has a lot to prove and we just want to be done.  This was a tough year for us from coaches to players.  My best guess is it will be hard for our guys to match the intensity that ND brings to this one.  I feel for them.  It's hard being hunted like they were this year.  And add to that the fact that they weren't really let off the leash until the final game of the season.  I hope we put a beat down on the domers, but it's going to be tough.  At the same time, if Meyer can get them ready and excited, then we should be win by 3 touchdowns without a problem.  I would love to sit in on the coaches meetings for this one.

I don't think there's going to be much defense in this.  I honestly just don't see the team or the Buckeye nation all that hyped about this one.   I think Notre Dame cares more than we do, and I think Kelly has something to prove.  I think Notre Dame is going to come out ready to roll and that's a little bit scary to me.  If we win this game, it's not going to be because of our game plan or skill people.  If we win it will be because Meyer did an excellent job of making this a must win for the team.  If he can help them find the balance between intensity and letting loose on the field, then we kill them.  My personal opinion is that this has been a long and difficult season for our guys from a mental stand point.  I hope they're able to relax and enjoy giving a good 'ol curb stomping to those wankers from nd.

Comment 09 Dec 2015

Agree with the OP.  I told the wife last night that it was one of the best 50 minutes of tv that I have watched in a long long time.  She had fallen asleep...sheesh.  Like it's tiring be a stay at home mom of 3 or something...

Great call re Dan John. He helped me out with a squat question several years back. Solid guy.

...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.

Comment 17 Nov 2015

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.

Comment 17 Nov 2015

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.

Comment 25 Sep 2015

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.
