Doctors say that Nordberg has a 50 - 50 chance of living, though there's only a 10 percent chance of that..

Nastys in Hilliard, all you can eat on Wednesdays - also very delicious

Ah The Wrestling Album...owned it as a kid.  Wrestlemania 2 Hulk vs King Kong Bundy in a steel cage match, Mr. T vs Rowdy.  Tito Santana, Macho man Randy Savage, the Junkyard Dawg, Superfly Snuka...If you can't believe the album, can you believe there was also a Saturday morning cartoon?!

Changing of a stripe, or number size is different i.e. more of a tweak.  Going from scarlet and gray to all black is a bigger deal.  While it may or may not help recruiting, it also may or may not polarize your alumni base - and no one in the athletic dept will bite the feeding hand without more empirical economic evidence of the upside.  Probably the reason for the uniform brand enhancement vs complete re-branding.

Tiqiq.com is a decent place to start.  There are a few local to Cbus ticket brokers I've used, TicketsGalore.com where you may also have luck, but you're are really going to pay for tickets.  As for things to do, there is a ton of food and beer to experience.  Thurmans is always a crowd pleaser, Schmidts, Bernards.... Jeni's is unique ice cream.  The craft beer is nearly endless.

Does anyone else see the bad math:  Addition by subtraction?  Multiplication by division?  I can throw aphorisms with the best of them DJ, but joining the SEC does nothing other than make you feel better about OSU simply by association bias.  If that warms you, go buy the latest smartphone and spend a year defending why it's "the best."  Poor journalistic psuedo-statistics aside, we don't become better by colluding with something others think is better i.e. it's branding bias.  What's still around since 1896?  Ohio.  Everything else has been built and evolved on top of it as a foundation, including you.  Change is inevitable; forcing change for little more than namesake is short-sided (football only) and impulsive.  Going to another conference is more following than leading.  When you're following, the view doesn't change much.

Aaron Craft is the basketball equivalent to Tim Tebow.  Now if only Tim can teach Aaron how to shoot, and Aaron can teach Tim how to throw...

Snyder will do whatever makes the most money.

Probably a different slant, but I'd like to see them build the Stadium Scholarship Dorms under the South stands.  Perhaps a student cafeteria with view overlooking the field.

In addition, Clarrett was injured for 3 games that year.  Krenzel lead the team despite Lydell "Diana" Ross and Creaky knee Mo Hall.

I'm in favor of any rule that turns the trend away from the "and-1" style of basketball, and points it toward a team game.  As stated above, something where the players actually have to be able to shoot vs. red carpet rules entitling their way to the hoop.

Troy became sick in Baltimore near the beginning of the season.  Flacco or Boller started taking first team reps.  Similar to Russell Wilson and Matt Flynn being neck and neck until one was given a nod.  Troy was just a victim of bad timing.  When he was released, he was put in situations to be a back up, nothing more.

The league only cares as it will slow sales of Gordon jerseys.  It's trying to ever protect and enhance it's brand.  Any drug, or alcohol choice may not harm a person.  There are several studies to support any position on the topic.  The point is we live in a culture approving of good decisions.  The majority of decisions made around alcohol, et al are generally not great choices, regardless of legality.

Not a fan of Dalton, but can't see the gals drafting another mediocre QB talent to replace him.  They should bait him into playing hard for a contract this year, then conveniently not match the offer from the highest bidder.

Comment 05 May 2014

Any player can be coached better.  McShay probably didn't have his monthly quota met for irritating Buckeye fans, so he went passive aggressive.  More than anything on the field, I think Roby has proven he needed more maturation.  Guidance from a coach would've helped him in those efforts.

Coombs is a team guy.  He was brought in as a recruiter helping put a fence around the Cinci area.  Under Withers, he pushed his guys hard to do what he was told.  He's now pushing them hard under the Ash scheme.  I could go either way on his coaching prowess, but he's a good motivator, and an elite recruiter.  He's the guy that can get talent, and Ash is a guy who can develop talent.  Sounds like a good complement if they can put each other in positions to succeed.
