I smashed head on with Gavin Cupp's father, Keith. I was the running back and he finally got tired of me running around him. 42 dive and POW! I saw star. Keith was about 6'5" 280-290 in HS. Not sure how big he got when he played a bit for the Bengals.

For the record, I was all of 5' 7", 150lbs if I ate my wheaties.

It is not just about academics but the long term perception of the institution/programs (reputation), funding, and unique opportunities for attending students. All of them feed on each other to create an elite university.

Math is math, chemistry is chemistry and you might actually learn more about the subject elsewhere but not have the same unique opportunities.

Jack Nicklaus's major championships at 18 in his career. That will never be broken.

Tiger woods had a shot, but he is now unlikely to beat it.

Think about how quickly Woods has fallen off the cliff.

He has 14 majors but hasn't won one in over 6 years, and can't even make the cut anymore.

My lotto didn't hit so I'll have to wait a few years to request a 'buckeye' favor ;-)

Interesting. I wish they would make them like the old jeeps. The one I had was made out of real steal, like 16 gauge. I could actually put a good welding bead on it without burning through...ha.

They were kind of cheap at the time I bought it. I think it was 1986 when I bought it for about $800. Needed some work but once I fixed her up, she would not stop. I do remember that top end speed was around 50 mph, and she would whine like no tomorrow when I stretched her out. The gear ratio, I guess, was just not made for the road. If I recall correctly, it had a 4 cylinder but it seemed like it would run forever. The skinny tires were perfect for plowing through mounds of snow.

Boy, that was a fun vehicle but I always ran out of gas because the gauge didn't work and I couldn't find a replacement.

Nice. I had a '48 Willys Jeep back in the day. That was a fun vehicle. I swear it was part Sherman tank.

I'm checking my lottery numbers here soon. Fingers crossed.
