I'll wait for the good news to come when Barrett out performs all expectations and takes us through an undefeated year.
I just keep hoping that Under Armor can help lift Maryland. With all the news about UA and Kevin Durant I get excited, hoping that they grow their market share in the apparel and athletic shoe business and take a page out of Nike's playbook and make Maryland a sexy choice. Kind of like "Oregon East." Sadly though, Oregon also needed a dynamic coach in addition to a large pile of Nike money to join the new football elite.
@Tim & Hit: I was talking to a couple of buddies about this yesterday and the first asked if there has been grade inflation on the test like there has been on GPAs in many schools. The second who works in academia, noted that the ACT has been reworked in recent years so its hard to judge past scores from current scores. One of them sent me this link ( http://www.act.org/newsroom/data/2013/pdf/profile/Ohio.pdf ) which seems to suggest (if I'm reading it right) that at least over the past few years this things has been consistent based on overall scores.
Anecdotally, my mother-in-law is a guidance counselor and regardless of test score inflation, she says based on what she has seen, OSU is much harder to get into than it was a decade ago.
Not surprised at all. Good luck to him.
Wow. That puts me at below average. I had a 28 in 1998 and I think the average for the freshman class back then was around 22.5 or 23.
Yeah, me too. I did feel a little weird being in my 30s and being super excited to watch commentaries from a show I watched when I was 5.
They are the Penn State fans of their division.
Auto upvote. I don't know what episode this is but having seen every single one at least several dozen times in my youth, I would guess the one with Cold Slither.
Happy Bday, 11W!!!!!!!
Terrible. Prayers sent to him and his family and friends.
Amazing. I know that they are not exposed to air inside the body, but not even a hint of rust!
I think the old phrase is, "When you have two quarterbacks, you have no quarterback."
It could work but it makes me nervous.
Wow! I need to go work out. Way to much adrenaline pumping to be sitting at my desk working.
GIVE THEM NOTHING! TAKE FROM THEM . . . . EVERYTHING!
Isn't Arizona favored by Kirk as well?
We have the technology . . .
I think you treat this like an American Flag:
The United States Flag Code (4 USC Sec 8 Para (k) Amended 7 July 1976) states: "The Flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem of display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning."
Burn those Buckeyes before the Navy game kicks off. Say a prayer, 5 hail Woody's, and have a moment of silence then light those things up and put on your new set.
Let us know when the deed is done.
Great stuff, Birm. You're like a lighthouse on a dark and stormy night.
I stuck around an extra quarter to pick up another year of tickets . . . and to a lesser extent, an econ minor. That was the 2002 championship season. Coincidence? Probably. But in my mind? National Champs. Lock.
I did not see this one coming.
Well at least we have this.
Very eloquent, Hove.
Some people have success doing their wives?????
I said the same thing below. Sorry I didn't see your comment before hand. +1
I know this sucks, but am I the only one who thought, "Good thing the AP top 25 already came out."
