  • SPORTS MOMENT: I was at the shoe when Kieth Byars ran out of his shoe for his fourth touchdown that day. Best day spent with my son at a preseason game prior to his departure for Afghanistan. Four sons all in the military one deployed, one comes home next week, one back from Iraq for a year now and the youngest (fourth) probably will now not have to go.

Feeding before bedtime is a big part of it. They will sleep much longer, because of their basic needs being met. I had twin boys only two years after my first son was born. The twins did not sleep through the night unitl they were nine months old. And of course if one woke up, so did the other. I do recall sleeping in the recliner, one son on each arm with a bottle in their mouths. (And me wanting a good drink too, but no, I did not)

That time was a blur for me, I worked third shift fulltime, was going to college fulltime, and was a very active member in the National Guard. I really do not remeber much of any of those first nine months other than constant fatigue.

Feed the child. Fresh diaper, It will make life much easier for all.

Well, I do not want to give away Hove's and my age, but our Lincoln Logs are now petrified wood.

Is jeopardizing your entire 85 person+ teams eligibility by breaking rules that you do not like wrong?

Hell yes it is. That is the pure definition of Selfish. Screw over friends and/or family for your own personal wants.

So many kids from Ohio that want to be here. Sadly that in this way, that the sucess of the team prevents more Ohio kids from making the team.

Only so much room and being the NC brings in top talent from all over the country. If OSU wants to stay on top they will have to turn away many native Ohio sons.

I beleive this situation that the term "bittersweet" most aptly fits.

"The best news: You're now closer to Ohio State's opener now than you were when you clicked on this article."

I think I will make this my morning mantra. It definitely helps.

Dr. Earl, thank you for your welcome insights into the medical fields and sports injuries.

Congrat's to whomever at 11W for coming up with this stellar addition to the already high quality content of their site. Brilliant move by 11W in my "expert reader" opinion.

This type of medical information can only help people to understand injuries more. Recovery periods and the difference in recovery periods of similar, but actually different  injuries amongst our beloved sports figures.

Again Dr. Earl, Thank you.

Well reasoned, well stated. I agree with you on your take completely.

VT is going to throw everything they can at us, especially in their own house.

Our best weapon is that they will not know which QB and inherent style that QB brings to the table that they will have to face. It will be very tough to game plan their D against our O because of that. Adv - OSU.

Their O vs our D. Adv.. OSU.

But I still do nothink this will be a high scoring affair 35-14 OSU, seems about right.

Whomever the driver is, they are not stuck, that is a 4WD Jeep, they can just roll up onto the curb givingthem room to back up and turn a little,  and then pull forward and over the curb and drive away leaving Urbs car hanging out in the lot.

Still I would not want to be the person who parked there.

There fixed that one for you.

'Get over it and stop acting like the jilted desperate lonely pathetic guy that nobody listens to anymore when he wants to continue whining about his old girlfriend."

Said the UM fan.

See works very well there too.

I love the part of the lable that staes "Aged on White Oak", because it must be really good to not have evaporated over time as it was aging on top of a piece of white oak before being bottled. Yuuuummm.

Amazingly it is still a pale ale afer being exposed to the sun during its "aging" period.

Maybe the aging was when they poured it out of the vat down a white oak trough, that led to the bottling area?

Well they have kids in Holland,

You just don't see too many of them unless you are walking alonside of a dike (earthen mound to retain water). They can be found standing there frequently.

Just don't ask them to conduct the OHIO photo op pose, or you will end up all wet.

I am not convinced.

If DJ posts a picture of him actually eating Skyline, and his cats wearing Skyline apparel, then I will believe in his long awaited conversion back from the dark side.

I like all of the proposed rule changes, I think they will provide needed uptempo to a staler form of basketball that most college BB games present.

The sixth foul will be huge for teams with only one star on the court, allowing them to play hard in both halves.

One less time out, how about two or more, withthe eight TV timeouts. You can usually just tune in for the last 2 minutes of clock time and still see 25 minutes of a BB game, only usually not the most entertaining part.

30 seconds of clock time versus 35, yep gimme some of that. No more killing clock every time down the floor if you have the lead, shoot it, or give it up, and let the other team at least have a chance without turning the game into a foul fest.
