I just hope the walleye survive! I've got plans to hit Lake E this coming spring to round out my limit.

When walleye season hits, goodbye NC and Turtle Creek Marina here I come - at least for a couple of weeks.

Just like Canada, the Great Lakes and Ohio are way underrated by the masses!

I wonder what EZE's 40 time is. Not that I'm in any hurry to have him leave and test at the combine, but man, he left some serious speedsters at the gate on a few of his big runs.

EZE a 4.4 guy?

LOL. How did they think they would get away with that? There are literally tens of thousands of buckeye fans on this site that scour the web. Did they not think someone would make the connection? Crazy....

Young team! Turned the ball over and crazily still kicked some arse, and against quality opponents.

National Champions. Swish that around! I'd say they were pretty good.

Scary to think how good they might be next year. It definitely makes the months til kickoff seem very very long!!!

Lots of up votes for you all from me! I love this talk.

Yes. I tell anyone applying to grad school to go to the department and show your face, especially if you consider yourself just above average or so. It goes a long ways in getting accepted and getting a grad stipend or assistantship.

Also, if you have an area that you are hell bent on studying, go to one prof who studies in that area and tell them that they are the greatest thing since the internet, and that you want to work with them. Faculty are absolutely built to have their back stroked...ha.

I paid way more for my undergrad at OSU than I did for my graduate degrees combined....lol.

Comment 08 Feb 2015

Yeah. Perception is a big key. Most, if not all, universities offer good undergraduate education.

It also depends on the student and what they want. Engineering? Business? Most larger public universities have great programs in these areas while the smaller liberal arts excel in the traditional studies as well as the basic sciences (physics, chemistry etc.)

I have been a Professor for 15 years now, and I can tell you that everyone in the admissions office focus on those damn standardized scores and HS GPAs. For graduate school, we focus on GREs. Not much else.

Sometimes I think the process of admission for undergrad and grad is a bit short sided, and do not allow for other factors. This is mostly due to time, and a bit of laziness.

I have told anyone who would listen that we would be better off if we recruited general students like athletes. Look at all the work that goes into throwing out an offer to join our buckeyes. That kind of attention to detail is what is needed. Get to know the student, family, former teachers etc. I could on forever...lol.

Standardized scores and High School GPA are indicative of success broadly speaking. Not the only ingredient in the recipe but they are the only things colleges have as a metric to gauge potential success. All colleges rely heavily, and sometimes exclusively on those two metrics.

That is why having a high average standardized score for a college or university as a whole is waived around as an indicator of a quality education.

Hard to get in. Those who do get in are likely to succeed, and it shows demand and the perception that a college has a quality education to offer.

Comment 08 Feb 2015

And they did mention this... "Last season, the top three teams in Preseason FPI (Florida State, Oregon and Alabama) made the inaugural College Football Playoff."

Not bad unless you consider they missed on the 4th team who happened to win it all...lol.

Comment 08 Feb 2015

I wish someone would have offered and begged me to take a full ride to OSU only to leave to be never seen again! I'd taken that any day, yes sir I would! I had to phark'n pay for my college. Every last dime. What the heck? 

I am not trying to knock Weber. I have no idea on what went down, but BIG picture here applies very well AND goes a long ways!!!

Comment 20 Jan 2015

Holy smokes. Looks like he gained 40 lbs of muscle and lost 20 lbs of hair...ha.

Comment 18 Jan 2015

I think the NCAA did have the right to slam PSU. Jo Pa and the rest of the U food chain covered up this horrible act to avoid the wrath of the fallout.

That said. Get some perspective here.

Children were raped in their football facility, and PSU feels the need to spend time fighting over 112 phucking wins?

Somebody needs to check their shit at the door.

Comment 18 Jan 2015

Holy crap. Look at the last post at the end of the article. I've copied and pasted it below.... a big 'ol LOL at McDermott the frog.

We'll see if he's still laughing when he's watching Ohio State play for National Championships, as Duh U wallows in mediocrity. 

Comment 18 Jan 2015

Awesome. Loved the commentary by Paul, and the music between plays. Nicely done.
