"...we would be considered martyrs to the University by most of the population of the U.S."

I do not think that word means what you think it means:-)   I kid (and get what you are saying), but a sincere thank you for the info on Danny Clark.  He definitely seems like a young man with his priorities in order.  As Buckeye fans, we would be lucky to have him lead our favorite team in a few years.

Hahaha.  Yes.

I was going to post the exact same thing.  First thought that came to mind when I saw the picture.

Comment 25 Jul 2014

I recall watching some highlights of this little lady on defense. Equally impressive/gutsy.

Comment 21 Jul 2014

I've never watched an arena football game before (not a knock on the game; just never went out of my way to do so), but this is news is definitely a good enough reason to catch a few LA games.  Wishing KG the best of luck!

Upvote for you, Ahh Saturday.  Agree 100%.  

I don't know how fast is, but as you indicated...he is definitely "plenty fast enough" in pads on the playing field.  I wouldn't trade his combination of agility (wow, just wow) and acceleration for anything...except maybe a tad more throwing accuracy:-).  Regardless, I am completely excited watching him play again in less than two months.  Go Bucks!

I own both devices.  Each device, obviously, has its respective advantages and disadvantages that merit doing your own personal research.  Namely, some features that might be important to one person (e.g., Roku's USB capability) might not be as important to another person (e.g., mirroring the iPhone's screen display on your TV).  In short, I have found they are both comparable in performance (e.g., WiFi range, buffering, and menu navigating speed, for example).  I would say that Roku is much more flexible due to the number of "channels" you can "subscribe" to (although over half are admittedly complete garbage).  In contrast, Apple TV's channel selection is static (i.e., *you* can't "add" more channels; Apple occasionally adds some per their own schedule).  That being said, I have found that I prefer Apple TV's interface/menu layout for WatchESPN and Netflix over Roku's offering.  Although not a dealbreaker/maker for either, I would say Roku's remote control is much better than AppleTV's.  My bigger/clumsier fingers are simply not compatible with the smaller AppleTV controller (which, comically, I seem to lose more often in the couch cushions).

In the end, both are great and comparable devices and you really can't go wrong with either (i.e., neither will disappoint).  However, I do think it will be worthwhile for you to research some of the different features that may be critical for you personally.

No disrespect to either player, but I believe Khalil Mack had a decent head start to the endzone corner after intercepting Miller's pass. I will have to look at that play again to be sure (so I could be inserting foot in mouth).

Comment 16 Jul 2014

I voted yes.  Perhaps I am (personally) defining rivalry too loosely, but I *despise* losing to Wisconsin and Penn State.  However, if having "hatred" for a team 365 days of the year is a prerequisite for a rivalry (of any type), then there is only one team that qualifies.

Comment 11 Jul 2014

As a student, I loved attending night games for the atmosphere. 

As a parent, I love night games on television because my three (very) young kids are already in bed asleep and I can watch the game(s) in "peace."  

Comment 12 Jun 2014

Not a soccer guy, really.  However, the World Cup is like the summer Olympics for me.  I don't regularly watch the sport/event(s) on an annual basis, but my interest is definitely piqued every 4 years.  Maybe it's whole national pride thing.  

Go U.S.A.!!!

Side Note: Watching the USMNT in a bar atmosphere makes can make for a lively experience that is hard to beat.

This is one of the most entertaining articles I have ever read.  Cheers to you, Ramzy.  Oh yeah, get better soon:-)

Comment 07 May 2014

This.  I'd rather have Urban, his system/staff, and a bunch of 3-star players that want to play at Ohio State than anything Franklin and PSU can offer.  Any. Day.

Comment 29 Apr 2014

Not completely off-topic, but I was wondering what some of you more knowledgeable Buckeye/gun enthusiasts are using and/or would recommend for home defense (in a household with small children)?  I have seriously considered about purchasing a firearm that would be relatively "user friendly" considering that I probably will not go to a shooting range on a frequent basis (but I would certainly find the time to take a safety course and target practice a minimum of 1-2 times a year).  Do any of you have any thoughts/opinions on this matter?

Side note: My limited experience with firearms is shooting low-caliber rifles and pistols at a target range in my teens (i.e., 20 years ago with my father). If I recall correctly, I was comfortable handling the guns and was above-average in skill, but would not consider myself a marksman at all:-)

 

EDIT: Thank you guys (and ladies) for all of this info!  Please know that I greatly appreciated your insightful (and responsible!) comments on this subject matter.  All of these responses have provided me with a lot of food for thought that one wouldn't readily find with a conventional web search.  Just another reason why I love this forum community.  Thanks again and Go Bucks!

Comment 28 Apr 2014

Thanks for the recommendation.  I will definitely consider the Taurus out when the time comes for a purchase.  I also agree with your POV regarding guns and children.  This was also my personal experience based on the lectures/instruction I received from my father and my handling/cleaning of weapons (under strict supervision; "always handle the gun as if it is loaded").  Consequently, I was extremely cautious and had a very healthy respect for firearms at an early age as well.
