Wish granted (I think) but you will have to be slightly patient.  I believe the Bucks are at Texas in 2022 and have Texas at home in 2023. 

Edit:  Unky Buck stole my glory.

I don't know whether this is true; however, I found this quote interesting:

For those who weren't here then, the Texas 247 staff and a large majority of member posts backed Barrett over Swoopes...and didn't think it was a close call.

JT certainly got some praise from some people who I imagine would have remembered him from HS.  That adds to my optimism about this season.

Thank you for number 3. My wife thinks a dishwasher will clean anything. She doesn't understand that the damn dishwasher becomes a kiln and i end up having to chisel that food that she didn't rinse off the darn plate. And then I'm the jerk when I say something for the 1000th time. We will be divorced eventually and not for that but I have the same pet peeve.

Seems, to me, like the Braves just moved into its stadium too (at least in stadium years).  They must have money to burn in that city.

I personally found TP's quotes in reference to Ed O'Bannon saying he masqueraded as a student to be impressive (quotes are below).  I also think it reflected well on tOSU (assuming, as I am, that tOSU is not one of the schools he is referring to).  I will always be a fan of TP and am greatly appreciative for what he did in his three years.

"I won't say any school names," Pryor said. "But the schools are telling you to take certain classes that you can pass so you can play. The problem with that is, if a guy like that gets hurt and now can't get that 500 grand or up to $5 million in an NFL contract, the guy hasn't learned a lot.

"He didn't learn to be a lawyer. He didn't learn to take the things he needed to move on, and now he has to go to school again. I see it going on an awful lot and I think it needs to be addressed."

That being stated, the comments at the end of the article, as with the comments after most tOSU articles that are not printed within the borders of Ohio, makes me angry for the rest of the day.

My guess is that all of those will be noon or, possibly, 3:30 kicks.  I am impressed by your ability to have a six week window to schedule a birthday celebration though.

I always think his comments such as that referenced are humorous. I also believe that, along with stirring up reaction for the sake of the site, is the intention of his writing. Am I wrong or just not overly sensitive enough?

Great article as always. I have never lived outside of Ohio but I had the same feeling of home with the Columbus suburb I live in. 20 years ago, when I graduated high school, I couldn't get out of the Columbus area quick enough. I moved to Cincinnati and, 5 years later, degree in hand, I couldn't wait to come home. 2 years after that I returned to my original hometown. There are nostalgic moments that lead to great stories with my children but it is so much more. It's home.

Good for him but a couple things. 1. Did that highlight reel include him taking a safety on a kick - off or did I have the wrong guy I was watching? 2. Did that highlight video have credits for the director and, if directed, we're the plays not real?

I guess it makes sense.  Better reason for me to stick with only two kids.  It will make giving stuff away a bit easier (although I don't have anything to give them).

Thanks Mike.  And thanks for delivering excellent recruiting coverage on the basketball front.

The quote that you reference is as impressive a quote as I have seen from a Buckeye commit in recent memory.  For me, this came out of left field as I did not know much about this quarterback.  However, when I read that quote, I immediately became a fan of his.  Chalk me up as excited - and impressed!
