For me, the word "interesting" is best used in person where you can really decipher the meaning of the user by the tonality that is employed. Kind of like the word "dude". "Gee grandma, this casserole is interesting" really means it sucks when you say "interesting" very slowly and in a monotone. But watch your tone with Grandma, she's been around for a while and knows a smart-ass when she hears one. That next casserole might have Ex-Lax in it.

Wonder what's behind Okie losing Big Game Bob? The timing seems odd. Is he burnt out after being a head coach for what, 20 years? Maybe he just thought this was a good time to take a pause and do some commentating before he moved on to other things like the NFL.

Or, is it the Urban effect? By that I mean after Urban kicks your ass soundly in a big game you "re-evaluate" everything, as Gary Anderson did after that 59-0 masterpiece Urban and the lads laid on him (yes - I am painfully aware that Tress didn't take a dive after that Disaster in the Desert in early 2007, but stay with me).

Sonny Dykes, Head Coach at Cal, which OSU humiliated at their home stadium (but they supposedly won at life) is now out of coaching, although it took him a few years. 2014 saw big victories over Rutgers (Kyle Flood), and Cincinnati (Tommy Tubs) - both head coaches are gone. Frank Beamer of VT retired after the 2015 season that started with a big time loss to starting QB Cardale Jones and Urban. Big Game Bob gets embarrassed last year in Norman by Urban and has now quit before the rematch he knows he will lose.

I know confirmation bias is rampant these days, but I'm starting to see a pattern here.......

If Millennials are in large part killing mediocre chain eateries, then it should be seen as a badge of honor. The food culture in the USA is changing, and for the better. Any restaurant needs to either improve it's offerings, methods, suppliers, and processes, or risk extinction. Younger generations have driven the beer culture to improve, so the same thing is happening with food. It's all good, unless you own stock in Brinkers, et. al.

Love seeing that players coming from the Heart of the Midwest, namely Ohio, are still the bulwark of the team. The perception is that Meyer has players coming from all 50 states and only a few from Ohio, so facts are friends for those that think Ohio recruiting soil is not being tilled enough.
