Sometimes programs have excellent QB coaches. That being said, I wish that Pryor had gone to a QB guru during his time at OSU to actually get some focused attention.

How is this even possible? I mean, the word they were trying to spell is right below.

I'm sure that the algorithms that decide what place an add have some way to not include ads that are insensitive. But to not include an add as innocuous as a shower ad would take additional steps to review the story and decide if the story has negative connotations for the product being placed.

So yes, it seems insensitive but I don't know how you actually prevent the situation, barring not using targeted advertising or a privacy settings/private browser, without knowing everything about everyone and for every device on which you can access the interwebs.

I probably would've posted during the season as well.

But I wish football would start.

My parents live in the same neighborhood as the Millers, we attended the same church and I played sports with his younger son. And my father was a professor in the College of FAES (in horticulture) so we knew them fairly well. I've not seen him much the last decade or so as I'm an Ohio expat but I attended several bowl games during the past decade and Ray was always there to promote the College and we'd see him occasionally when I was in town. So when I was in town last week and found out he passed I was really upset that I didn't know as I could have attended the funeral. He was a great man.

Andy, there's probably more people on here with farm background than you realize. I'm not from a farm (my wife is) but did raise animals for 4H.

BTW, Ray Miller passing was quite a shock. We knew he was sick but still that was disappointing. I found out the day of the funeral.

Here's my insider knowledge into the Hilliard visit:

I was visiting my parents in Hilliard all last week. You won't get that news anywhere else.

Estrada, in recognizing that some grad students receive tuition waivers and stipends you also have to recognize that grad students do not receive free room and board. That eats most of the stipend, at least where I went to school. Without a working spouse I don't think I would have been doing much extra.

Well known fact...Bert is a break dancer now...

Those poor, broken dance floors.

Thanks for the clarification.

So, after searching, the Belgian Malinois is basically a Belgian "Shepherd"? Thanks, I learned something new. Next time I'll just say "Don't piss off a military working dog" because I don't known breeds so well (But if we had military working flowers or plant species, then I'd be an expert).

First, you stated he was a terrible QB. That's different than "not great".

Second, he actually played in the NFL. He wasn't Bauserman bad. Bauserman had a more lively arm but it was also...lively.

Yeah, I almost mentioned that shining example of proud Buckeye heritage! He was the first idea that popped in my head when Charlotte and OSU were mentioned together.

From the last WMD link:

A Detroit man said love drove him to road-trip across the country with his girlfriend's corpse in the passenger seat.

What, did he not have a lawn chair for the roof?
