I lived in Leuven for two years. Enjoy the beer, chocolate, waffles and easy access to most of Western Europe.
This makes me wish we were wearing our whites in the Championship Game. Man, those look fresh.
Some of JT's record numbers made me curious about league marks. At 33 pass TDs, he's now tied with Russell Wilson for 2nd most in a season. With at least three games remaining, he's within reach of Drew Bree's 39 from 1998. It's easy to attribute some of the gaudy numbers to the system, but Brees probably averaged close to 50 pass attempts/game for those Purdue teams.
There may be no state pride in Illinois but Chicagoans love their city. I've seen more Chicago flag tattoos living here than any Ohio related ones during the first 22 years of my life spent in the Buckeye state.
2/3 of this year's night games in the 'shoe are lousy.
In 2012-13, the Flyers' average attendance was 12,438 (26th in Division I). UD Arena holds 13,435 = 92.5% full.
In 2011–12, Ohio State averaged 16,511 (8th in Division I). Value City holds 18,809 = 87.7% full.
UD has been in the top 30 for attendance the past 17 years straight and out of the top 35 only once since 1969, the year UD Arena was opened. Flyer fans are hardly bandwagon and will continue to support their mediocre teams in the future. If you haven't seen a game at UD Arena, you should check it out. I'd argue it's better than the Schott.
I couldn't care less about what he does in the off season either. Clearly, the responsible thing to do would be to stay clean and work on improving his game (the Mannings might be able to help him with that...). But frankly, if he performs well this season no one will remember all this nonsense. If he doesn't, it'll be talked about in the media ad nauseum. It's his life. If he wants to make bad decisions and jeopardize millions of dollars, so be it.
A pro for St. Paul has to be proximity to Minneapolis. Minneapolis is an underrated city, IMO.
I do 'trust the staff'. I admit that I have decidedly less football acumen than a group of people paid hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars yearly to spend nearly every waking moment 'doing their own homework'. Why trust the advice of a doctor? Just 'do your homework' and diagnose it yourself. Of course doctors make mistakes. And so do football coaches. Maybe this young man will be a great QB at Ohio State. Maybe not. I'll let him decide that for himself. I do know that I like how excited he is to have earned a scholarship offer. He set a lofty goal and achieved it. Regardless of how his career at OSU ends up, he'll be quite successful in life with that attitude and work ethic.
He seems well spoken for a 17 year old.
Leesburg, GA looks pretty rural. How is the competition his team plays against?
Scott Hall/Razor Ramon was the best recipient of the stunner.
As much as losing hurts me and the other fans, it hurts the players so much more. These kids put everything they have into the game. Did they play well the first half? Not a chance. They played hard at the end and had a chance, just didn't make enough timely plays (3 pointer and offensive rebound). 29 wins and an elite 8 appearance is a pretty great season. Every season ending is disappointing, except those rare championship ones. Hopefully we get one of those soon!
Worst half of basketball I've seen all year. It's not out of reach, though. Just have to come out in the second half and play better. Totally doable.
One of the things I saw Amir do last night a couple of times that makes a huge contribution is to seal off his defender when a teammate drives to the bucket. It doesn't make any stat line but it leads to easy points.
How do they call that foul on us but not on them the possession before????
Piss poor defensive effort. That's four on Ravenel.
This is a game of runs. Stay focused boys! Zona certainly isn't going to give up.
Where was the block on that???
That guy was totally out of control. Step in and take the charge!
Too many touch fouls
What was that foul?
All Barkley did was blame the refs the whole time. Unreal.
That was the only three he took today
