He got 72k guaranteed, his total contract is 2.4 (not 3) over 4 years at 600k a year.  

What will you say when he doesn't make the team, can't play at Ohio state and doesn't have a degree?  That he should go back a get a degree I assume?  How many years until he gets it?  How many years will that 72k have to last him, really more like 40k after taxes?  It won't be enough to pay for his tuition, assuming, but I don't know, he forfeits his tuition from his scholarship.

While we're doing math, only 58% of 7th round picks make the team the first year.  Only 21% make it through 4 years.

lets revisit it in a year and see how it turns out.

You and I have been to some of the same games, notably PSU Alabama and USC OSU.  OSU/USC was the loudest game I've ever been to and a level better than PSU Alabama.  The OSU USC game was obviously much closer which had a lot to do with it though.  PSU Alabama was tight for much of the game on the scoreboard but it never really felt close.

Judging Penn State when OSU is in town is like judging OSU only when USC or Texas are in town.

I've been to PSU - Temple.  Not any better than OSU Purdue at noon.

Penn State is the missing link between Miami and the rest of college football fan bases.

That's a long day.  Walking to that stadium is like walking toward a mirage, it seems close but it's really a mile away.  I've been a few times, but don't need to go back.

I have never met a man who said his tools were too good.

I buy the best tools available when I'm looking.  If it's too obnoxious I rent the best tool available.  I've renovated 6 homes to the studs and the only tools I've ever replaced were those which weren't top quality.  I waited too long to go battery but I have a hammer drill and impact driver and love them.

Mostly Milwaukee, but have Bosch saws, some Mikita, porter cable plunge router, Full set of 20 year old craftsman hand tools, sockets drivers etc that have been great and replaced for free when necessary, love a good set of channel lock hand tools.  I would consider snap on if I had to buy now but I will die with my first socket set so no need.  I have passload nail guns which are great for me but if I used them for a living I would go air.

i would love to get a shop table saw, band saw drill press etc but don't have the space or the need.

I don't know but Ohio Stadium must be a terrifying place with all those white faces in the crowd.  You just never know when one is going to jump out and kill somebody because they are black right?

Comment 20 Jun 2017

His shirt implies non-black on black crime.  I'm just pointing out that maybe he shouldn't be too concerned with people who look like me and maybe look more at people who look like himself.

facts are a tough thing to overcome.

You can't say you're just reporting what happens while then describing it positively, i.e. taking a position by calling it eloquent.   Sad you think that it was eloquent since it's not persuasive in the least.

Eloquent - fluent or persuasive in speaking or writing.

DJ - specifically what did you learn from him wearing the shirt?  Number of comments do imply any good was done.  I can find many topics about negative things where ther were 170 posts.
