I'm sitting in the barber shop wearing the exact same shirt he is.   I'm sure there's some cosmic meaning behind that but I have no idea what it is.  Somebody help a brother out.

Whatever you do, don't skip Florence.  If you have time, Pisa's a great stop too.  Skip Milan, Padova & Assisi from my trip and you won't regret it.

My sons & I went to Italy in March.  Flew in to Milan but spent most of our time in Venice, Florence & Rome with stops in Padova, Assissi & Pisa along the way.  To me, Italy gets better as you travel south, but the architecture is amazing throughout the state.  I didn't drink a beer there but I did have some fabulous wines.  You'll absolutely love it.

That's wrong on so many levels.  Funny, but the mental image is disgusting.

I see more Pryor running style with the long strides than I see Braxton, but agree on the footwork.  Several of those fades he threw off his back foot.  Nothing a little coaching cant' fix.  Glad he committed to the good guys.

However after Virginia Tech gave the rest of the country a blueprint on how to stop it with their 'Bear' front, Meyer and his staff were forced to look for other ways to run the football.

I've often wondered if the Buckeyes would have been the National Champions without that loss to Va Tech and because of their bear defense.  Had that not happened we likely don't prepare as much to beat that type of defense and later on in the season another team (MSU?) might have beaten the Buckeyes using that defense therefore they don't make the playoffs.   In a weird sense I think we should be grateful to Bud Foster & the crew.  Having said that, we still owe them one in their place and that day of reckoning will be 9/7/15.

The football equivalent to Mike Krzyzewskirbgkaioncandfrria.

I forgot to set my alarm this morning so I'm late for work.  I thought I'd briefly scan the skully then go but when I saw there was a Ted Ginn highlight film I had to watch it.  The thing that struck me was his ability to get up to full speed in a very short period of time.  He was special and I'm glad I got to watch him play.  Now, off to work.

It's incredible to think that such a good player as Perry is he gets overlooked just because he's surrounded by so much talent on this team.  In my opinion, none of those other guys shine as brightly off the field as Joshua does and that's saying a lot.  Glad to have such a quality young man representing our favorite university.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss and I know what you're going through.  I lost my Dad in 1992 when I was 24.  Still miss him to this day.

I saw a guy in the grocery store the other day who had a Reds hat on (this is in Mississippi) and I commented on being a Reds fan myself.  The first thing the guy says is "Pete Rose should be in the Hall of Fame" to which I agreed.  As many others noted above there are plenty of players in the HOF that did some nefarious things and what Pete did was no worse than what they did yet he's not in.  Regardless of his shortcomings you've got to let the guy in for his on-field accomplishments.

Agreed.  I would appreciate them winning it all so I can stop clinging to 1990.

The company I work for made talking or texting a fireable offense.  There was a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth at first but it didn't take long for everyone to adjust to it and it doesn't feel like an inconvenience at all.  It's common sense that when you are driving you should limit distractions to a minimum.

Off to a good start.  Let's hope that's indicative of the whole season.

Should be an interesting game.  Wisky has more experience with their group of upper classmen but Coach K is outstanding at getting the most out of his players.  I think the experience wins out like it did for UW against UK and they win.  I have a buddy at work that's a UW grad so I'm rooting for them to win for that reason as well as I felt bad for him after the beat down in the BCG.
