Well for all we know he tried to make some staff changes. But if you were an up and coming coach why the hell would you jump ship from your current job for what is more than likely a 6 month stint at OSU before the whole staff is fired?
11 feels high.
Nobody would watch that. I'm as big a fan as anyone, but there's no way in hell I'm watching women's volleyball or the rifle team. If it's going to have negligible ratings except for football/basketball, then just keep BTN.
2 hour flights + an hour for security/check in, plus time to and from the airport, plus the ~$200 roundtrip ticket, all multiplied by the 3-6 times a year she feels like coming to a home game...
I mean, she's got a point.
Same. He and his mom both seem like really good people. I hope he picks OSU but I'm expecting UGA, though I'll root for him wherever he goes.
Two things: 1) its his money, so who am I to tell him what to do with it. 2) Opportunity cost: the school now doesn't have to spend any money on the field, which will allow them to spend it on other things. So indirectly, the school is still going to reap the benefits.
I know nobody cares about bloggers... but these night games are getting a little out of hand!
#hottake: I'm over night games. I wish we had one per year so it was like a cool event, but other than that I wish they were all at 3:30. Maybe it's my over-30 age, but I hate staying up till after midnight watching tv. I'd rather the game be over in time for dinner, then I'd prefer to option (but not the obligation) to watch someone else in primetime. That way if Bama / FSU / etc was in a blowout I could just turn it off.
They currently have the #1 overall QB in this class too. So chances are good they're going to keep it up.
APR reflects the number of students who stay and graduate, so even a guy with a 4.0 who leaves would hurt you.
They are presumably a little busier in the fall.
Billy and Liam are business majors too, so congrats on getting a 4.0 on what I assume are "actual" classes (no offense to the leisure studies majors in the crowd)
11W just only announced the OSU ones. The networks also announced that Bama/FSU will be an ABC night game Week 1, and Florida State / Miami will be the ABC night game week 3.
Indiana, Oklahoma, Penn State for sure. Nebraska and Iowa extremely likely. Then maybe one other random one.
7:30? Are you sure you're not using the Oklahoma local time?
Expected, but at least it's official now.
Maybe but it's not a guarantee - LSU, Oklahoma and USC also had 1 loss. It basically would have been one giant headache, with all 4 having decent cases.
Maybe I'm in the minority but '16 Clemson really wasn't THAT bad because I had sort of seen it coming. It's not like the offense's problems just showed up overnight. And if we had somehow squeaked by them, Bama would have humiliated us.
2007 was the worst loss of my lifetime, hopefully a title it retains forever.
2008 LSU wasn't really all that bad to me, mostly because we kinda fell into the game backwards and I didn't really have high hopes.
If I had to think up one that you might have missed I would go with 2009 Purdue - it had such a huge WTF factor and derailed what otherwise could have been a NCG appearance (though the sting is lessened by the fact that Bama would probably have smashed us).
Seasons 1-3 are amazing, so I'd definitely recommend watching those. Got a little hit or miss for a while after that, but still excited for it to come back.
Hardhome was an exception, but in general the WWs are basically the Westeros version of North Korea. "The war is totally about to start you guys!! For real this time!!"
Since we've got 99 days left to discuss Buckeye-stuff, thoughts on the GoT trailer?? (It's the offseason, mods)
1. Not a single white walker. They better actually be in this season, and not continue their neverending tease by showing up in 4 minutes in the season finale.
2. Jamie's totally gonna kill Cersei, right? Will that be this year or next?
3. No Bran or Sam= good riddance
I mean, getting paid millions will likely take the sting out a little bit.
Honestly I'd accuse my own school of using bagmen if we landed some big recruit at this point
It should really just rotate between the huge global cities that could actually support them (London / Paris / NYC / Beijing or whatever). There are no bribes to be made doing that though.
