PSA: keep your pets safe as well. More pets are lost/ run away on July 4th than any other day of the year.
Happy Birthday to America and my nephew.
I don't normally eat a burger, a brat, and a streak, but it is the Fourth of July.
We've had such a long offseason of these threads in the forum that we've become less panicky and more of this:
So I guess that means Piscataway, NJ (we play at Rutgers Oct 24) has no chance of experiencing TBDBITL for at least two more years. For this reason alone, I would hate to live in Piscataway, NJ.
Structurally, the bridge is fine. But it is functionally obsolete. Twice as many vehicles cross over it than what it was originally designed for. It should have at least two more lanes each way with wider lanes if it is going to be in the same location (though you can easily make the argument of putting it farther west, but that would take rerouting all of I75 through the area).
I only cross it when visiting my brother in Covington. But whenever I come home from Illinois I have to deal with the congestion that the bridge causes, especially near rush-hour.
I75 is the worst. OH/ KY need to get their shit together to replace the Brent Spence bridge.
GoBucks, Thank you from a materials scientist/ engineer.
Definitely has a ")" shaped curve to it.
Our football team in the last decade or so is around high 2s to low 3s, which seems very reasonable for such a large team.
If Beckman and Illinois don't get at least 8 wins this year, he should be fired. But that won't happen unless they beat 3 of UNC, Iowa, Penn State, and Minnesota, which is highly unlikely. The athletic department will be fine with 6 or 7 wins and a low level bowl game and keep him another year or two.
Ask me again in November. As of now I'm just a little nervous. I have faith in UFM and the Buckeyes to beat TTUN.
If you put SHZR and Lee on the field together...
Champaign is not a bad place to see Ohio State win a football game.
So have we moved on from #FireFickell ? Or are we going with #FireTheNewGuy ?
I'd put it closer to 8 relatively tough games. While both are in Columbus, the games against Penn State and Minnesota, as evidenced by last year, are no cake walks whatsoever.
I just hope games don't require this great ending to win it.
Have you by chance been down to Champaign and tried Papa Del's? They have some pretty amazing deep dish pizza.
I generally try to bring back Ohio beers I can't find in Illinois (which I easily can get some Great Lakes). For me this generally involves one or more of the offerings from Rhinegeist, Mad Tree, Christian Moerlein, Jackie O's, or Mt. Carmel.
I was at the two bowl games. Both happened. We won both. End of discussion.
And booooo Mark May/ Mark May sucks (at 3:30 mark)
The middle child of accidental "over-posts" doesn't get any upvote love.
And Illinois still has Tim Beckman. #IllinoisFail
No video of UFM swinging the lumber but he can slow pitch with the best of them.
Nick Mangold would undoubtedly be an upgrade on the O-Line even if it isn't necessarily needed.
Otherwise more recently,
Dane Sanzenbacher!!! would be a nice help in the WR department opposite Thomas.
I'm roughly of the same opinion. I have watched it just to pass the time, but it really isn't anything great so far.
