I like how a lot of his blocks are to teammates. Sure blocking a shot into the 5th row is cool, but the other team gets the ball right back and has another chance to score. If you block it to your teammate, or keep it in bounds, it will produce extra possessions for your team.
Does anybody really think that firing him will change those band traditions? I read the report and correct me if I'm wrong, but nowhere in it does it say anything about him personally doing anything to a member. It seems like while he did not himself participate in those activities while head of the band, he just failed to act which allowed them to continue.
Do we really think that the next band director will be any different? The students will still have some form of hazing or initiation, they'll just probably be more cautious on how they do it and more selective on where it takes place. It seems to me that nothing is going to change, save a senior using a freshman's nickname in front of a director.
Firing Jon Waters (whether right or wrong) isn't going to fix the problem, it is only going to redirect where and when it takes place.
The most serious part of this whole situation is what mile marker Torrance Gibson is at....
As recent history shows, the BIG Championship game is a trap game for OSU. Last year, there wasn't a soul among us who thought we would lose to Michigan St. in that game. We were all talking about how Bama losing put is in the driver's seat for the NC game, and were making plans to go to Pasadena.
ATL is a huge Delta hub so I would check with them. I did a quick search on skyscanner.com and found multiple Delta flights outbound on the 5th and returning on the 7th for $200 roundtrip. That's about the cheapest you're going to find, and not a bad price overall.
I looked on the penn state ticketmaster page and tried to buy some tickets, but it says their OSU game is only available through season or mini plan tickets.
Thats awesome, I'll trade with him. In the pdf instructions on the ticket office website it tells you how to remove tickets from a group. I don't know if he's looked at that and tried those instructions. My email is [email protected] Contact me and we can talk.
That would be great if you can find someone! If possible I would like to confirm it since I would want that person to add their tickets to my group and tomorrow is the last day to add to a group. Message me or reply back Urban Nation. Thanks.
I would prefer straight trade since I would like to get a package to be able to add to my friend's group. If nothing materializes, I may consider selling them but prefer a trade.
Don't cab it anywhere in Columbus, use Uber, it's cheaper and more convenient. When I was a freshman, a cab ride to the airport cost me $40. Uber will do it for $25 and will be faster.

I think the reason why not many Rutgers tickets are available even though they're not a huge opponent is because its homecoming that weekend and a lot of tickets are reserved for the alumni associations for the individual colleges.
Why does the article list his name as both Marshon and Marcus? Does he go by both?
There was a pretty interesting article about this 2 weeks ago in Bloomberg Businessweek.
The new playoff system will effectively change how we consider players' places in history. From now on, those with really great teams, will not play bowl games but rather in the playoff. What if next year Braxton leads us to the playoffs and we win a semi-final game but lose the NC? Will we remember that as the same in the record books as say Pryor's 2010 Rose Bowl win against Oregon? Or will it mean less because we will have had the chance to win it all that Pryor's team never got? I think over time this will create a divide between how we evaluate players' historical place, creating a pre vs. post playoff divide.
I'm pretty sure the 2008 game during Pryor's freshman season against Penn St. was in Columbus, not Happy Valley.
It's going to be a shame when they can't fill the stadium while going 4-8 without Johnny Football
you're right. I updated the table to reflect that. Sorry for the mistake
