Yeah, but if (insert random mediocre SEC team) had our non-conference schedule and went 4-0, they would go from pre-season unranked to #6 by Week 5.

EDIT: This was a reply to the initial comment

Holy crap. Red Wanting Blue.  You just flipped that memory switch in my head.

I remember them at a free concert at UD back in 2003, and I gave one of their albums a good listen a couple years before that.  That was back in my jam band days.

OAR, Virginia Coalition, Pseudopod, Ordinary Peoples.....definitely some solid concerts.

This may depend on a person's mentality, but step on a scale routinely after you wake up.  Don't do it mid day, end of day, after a meal, etc.  You'll be able to keep track of your progress without any extra variables skewing your weight.

Doing a weight check every day will give you the feedback you need.  Had tacos and beer the night before? Went on a rampage during the holidays?  Its better to see the gradual increase and make a change than be surprised when you haven't weighed yourself in 4 months.

Few things worse in sports fandom than some bracket bigamist trying to talk to you about how they were going to take that No. 13 seed but didn't and now "one of their brackets" their ruined.

Ok, who's worse...

I'm gonna tell you all about the 12 upsets I picked in the 1st round bracket guy? or I'm gonna tell you how I started Mark Ingram over Frank Gore and won my fantasy football game by .8 points guy?

Stupid kid.  Stupid mom.  Further proof that not everyone is equipped with the intelligence to be on social media.  

Comment 17 Feb 2015

Gahanna's Jonathon Cooper, a top 2016 DE prospect/Ohio State commit, is going to be a problem for opposing defenses

He's so good on defense that he's a problem for other defenses?  

Holy schnikies.....that boy good!

I'm not much for what's on Top 40 / Hits 1, but Bruno Mars is solid.  I might be like you, and I like to hold on to my 90s music forever, but i'll give props to him.

Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Comment 09 Jan 2015

If strange things happen and TTUN somehow makes the championship game, I think it would depend on the other team.  Alabama, USC, Notre Dame all carry a "anyone but them" feeling (sorta like the Yankees).  If it's someone random like Arizona St, TCU, Georgia Tech, I don't think I could root for them just because B1G.  

Comment 07 Jan 2015

First, this clearly wasn't during practice time.  Interviews were happening.  

Second...

I've used Ticketsnow before.  Its the Ticketmaster buy/sell, but i've gotten decent deals there.

Just checked the Sugar Bowl and they have tickets for just under $200 (but probably not after the always popular "service charge")

Comment 12 Dec 2014

Not sure about areas to live, but if you can find one near Lockhart Smokehouse, do it.  Brisket was phenomenal. 

Comment 11 Dec 2014

I heard him on the Anderson topic as well.  He said something stupid like "Watching the B1G Championship game, it was obvious that Wisconsin was at a clear disadvantage with recruiting because of academic standards."

Maybe they were at a disadvantage because the coach of Wisconsin is not Urban Meyer. 

It's funny that you don't hear complaints about academic standards when a team does well.

Just don't get curious about her other work, in case your wife or kids are in the room.
