  • SPORTS MOMENT: The final 3 games of 2014 season, seeing my girlfriend as emotionally tied to a sport and team she formerly didn't care for/had disdain for as I have for over a decade now. Priceless.

Yeah, go get that TV, I doubt she'd have enjoyed your company during the holiday, but she'll love that cheap TV so she can be lonely in style.

Worked BEst Buy and Circuit City through these seasons. At one point it was potentially a reasonable time vs money thing. Now because of the ultra competitive corporations it has been pushed ahead earlier and earlier to try and get that business. Absolutely fucking stupidest thing ever. I'll just pay retail or shop online, I'm not going to suffer miserable time of day/weather for a bit of money off. I like my quality of life more.

TBH I think more than 5-10% of this fanbase is shit. And its not exclusive to us at all. Lots of garbage fans who over invest into a sports program. I love tOSU, and I root for them like hell, but I keep myself dialed back and just enjoy good games of football. Except for next week, then well, the usual "fuck e_" returns for a bit. That is the exception, at that point, being good is bad.

Thought this since the first nonsense of "moar games" came up. 4's good, lets let that play out before going crazy.

All leaders eventually trip up at some point. This is a situation where a leader will come out way better off if they are truly a great leader. He has the opportunity to set an example of himself.

Comment 02 Nov 2015

It would depend really... I mean he's doing something to get pulled over in the first place. I'd imagine that means he's potentially a risk behind the wheel and he made decision to drive. I'd have to say it being enough to get pulled over, I'd probably have done the same. And I'd quite honestly hate myself seriously for doing that, but the job has to come first, and that's protecting the public.

Honestly when I see stuff like this I just wonder, why even? You're the starting QB of the #1 team in the nation, you can basically call anyone and get a ride instantly. I'd have driven from Dayton up there to get the guy if it kept him from driving drunk. Would I do that for anyone? No. Anyone I have any vested interest in like family, friends, or OSU players? Yes. I'm just really happy nothing truly bad happened here.

While tonight looked like amazing OSU football... Rutgers isn't the measuring stick for me. Them right before a bye week was perfect to check tuning for JT. Really curious to see how they come out of the bye w/ Minnesota then the ugly part begins.

Haven't been a fan of him, still am not, and I don't see it changing given his start at tOSU. Could that change? Sure, my feelings about Cardale were pretty meh but it seems that got turned around, so it is possible. But from his recruiting to this, just a lot of "I really have yet to be ecstatic about this guy." And I am skeptical he will be a QB tbh, certainly doesn't feel like a leader.

I apologize, it was something that I had thought about and between work load and just being outright busy with things I hadn't really had a chance to read the site very much lately. Didn't realize that this post would be such a backlash to a genuine thought that came across my head. I'll just continue with my diminished desire to contribute to these forums anymore.

Comment 25 Sep 2015

So he just deleted the photo and removed the mentions, not like he made changes to something different and its being read into more than it should. (Admittedly, I don't care, I don't follow a single OSU coach/athlete on twitter because well, I'll get my info here. And this is likely a nothing to see here incident.)

Comment 25 Sep 2015

Honestly I can't really say that because I don't know the scale of previous situations that well. It seems like there are always events and problems going on that are tragic and of a high level of concern. Tensions feel a lot higher in the last ~5 years than the rest of my life, but whether or not that is a factor of me being young/child or if things have really gotten ramped up. Also I don't know how rough it was in the 70s/80s or the civil rights issues in the 60s, or vietnam, or WWII. It just seems there is always something going on, and unfortunately only the big things were documented from those eras, they didn't have a media so out of control that you basically can't miss information if you look for it now. Documentation due to the internet has substantially changed exposure of information, which is for the most part a really good thing.

All I know is I know shit, I am still learning, The biggest factor from me to my parents is heavily based in wisdom which mostly comes from experience and listening to your elders, both of which I actively do and I imagine a good portion is still lost on me. I am more intelligent than my father and mother, but they know a HELL of a lot more about life than I do. I just focus on living day to day and taking care of the people I care about and when I can, helping others. I keep it simple, otherwise my depression becomes a real pain in the ass to deal with.

I call them young kids who made a decision to join their country's military. Basic training is going to work out their discipline issues. If it doesn't I would imagine they'd be kicked out? Also I'd venture a guess that young kids in the military have made mistakes as well that would receive some sort of, oh I don't know, court marshal or disciplinary action? 18-25 is an age where people first develop freedom from their parents and try to learn from their own experiences, sometimes they are going to make mistakes. There are punishments for this, which is the whole point of them. It puts them back in line and hopefully they learn from it.

Also, the age based elitism is real. Instead of just assuming young people are inferior, maybe take into consideration you are at a benefit of wisdom and experience they have not yet had the opportunity to learn. I hear my parents all the time mention how all this doom and gloom bad stuff that happens on the news isn't new crap, it is just over saturated and covered with the media exposure today. I can probably establish a bridge that YOUR generation also had its fair share of mistake making people who were also disciplined as well. I look at my family and I can see the variety of mistakes made at several levels, it turns out that is just apart of life.

Comment 20 Sep 2015

Some people don't learn from other's mistakes. My dad has advised me in many things in my life, in an attempt to simplify things for me. I have never really learned from this method from anyone. I learn from walking the walk and having a reasoning and understanding behind my decisions(good and bad). 30 years old, still learning things the hard way, and I am fine with that. I know my dad knows better, his advice is likely right(Yes, he has been wrong in the past so there is plausible reason to question), but not knowing what is behind it makes it nearly impossible for me to LEARN from it. I also was taught well enough to use pretty decent reasoning skills and it helps me make slightly better decisions so ya know, I don't die or hurt anyone else's lives with my mistakes.

With Barrett in I saw the offense feeling more fluid and moving easier at times. There was a much better "click" it seemed like. And that's without him being able to get the time in as the starter, he's had significantly less reps in the games until now. He definitely hasn't taken the opportunity and seized it, but he's also coming in off a bench and having to sort of step in when the other guy has shown struggles. That's a bit tougher than coming in with the lead.

Comment 17 Sep 2015

I am getting up, a group of my opponents from our rival are gathering around me probably talking shit, I talk shit, things get heated, my helmet gets removed, yeah I'm taking swings at 18/19 years old too. Dontre didn't make a smart decision, so be it, but this is nothing like maybe a guy holding you on the backside of a play where you rip his helmet off and then dome him with it. It isn't even close, sorry.

Comment 17 Sep 2015

I think it is more the following up on what will happen if you do that which was being pointed out. Less about telling him consequences, more showing him the consequences. And in this case, maybe no one following up is why he's gotten this far/out of control. (Of course I'd look to see if his teammates were doing this crap as well before thinking its anything more than a teenage boy being an asshole.)
