Some supplier common to the two companies has screwed up 

Comment 23 hours ago

There has been an uptick the last two years. 101 and 100 points. Funny part is the early period included years of no 3 point line 

Comment 24 Apr 2015

LBJ would make anyone from any period looks stupid. The guys today are bigger stronger and faster than those of the past and have the same or better shooting ability.

Comment 24 Apr 2015

See my post above, D is not watered down. It is much tougher now than it was "back in the day."

Comment 24 Apr 2015

The period of 1977-1993 teams averaged far more points per game (108.48 ppg)  than they have since 1999 (97.41). FG percentages were much higher. As a matter of fact this year (100 ppg) was only the 4th time in 20 years that the league topped 100 ppg.

Go back and watch highlights from those times. There simply isn't a commitment to D. They may have played more physically but guys watched dudes fly right past them.

Comment 24 Apr 2015

Lot more D being played now then back in Jordan's day. Its also more of a team game than in the late 90s early 2000s.

I am trying not to get my hopes up but: CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAVVVVSSS!!!!

There are many nice pieces on this team. Star point guard having an awful night scoring on the road, that's OK KLove will shoot 6/10 from 3. The scary thing is, we haven't seen Cleveland's best yet.

Comment 24 Apr 2015

100% agreed. Jeni can send that ice cream to me. I'll take the risk.

I wonder what supplier screwed up?

Comment 23 Apr 2015

Been a while, buddy. Watch Dr. Strangelove in my Nuclear Proliferation Policy class and thought about you.

Comment 23 Apr 2015

Thanks.

Mr. Lowe's classes were a petri dish of creative thought due in large part, to the interactions of students.

A similar office set up would be cool. An open space where professionals from various disciplines work. A different person brings the music each day.

Meyer obviously knows what he was doing but last season he lost a few battles early. This year a bunch of the reasons recruits might stay away have been dispatched with. Ohio State has won it all, the B1G is not a laughing stock, there is a legitimate chance to play for it all. There is no comparison between our situation this year and TTUN's last year. The Buckeyes are coming off a NC, Hoke was being fired. Of course some of the recruits are going to flip in that situation. Also, Urbz is Urbz. He won't be complacent.

Thanks! I am perpetually in the periphery.

Hahah your there is some truth to your comment.

One of the smartest people I know is an artist. He is talented at everything. He synthesizes information via conversations with friends that are experts in a subject area and various periodicals. His wife is a book worm. She often rolls her eyes at him and trumpets her intellectual superiority based solely on the number of books she's read. He's far brighter than her and it isn't close. Sorry lady, but finishing the 50 Shades of Gray series doesn't mean you're smart. 


I almost never read books for leisure. I read BoC when I was in Iraq because I was bored. Funny, at Georgetown Law now and its finals time. I spend far less time reading than my classmates. Instead of taking notes, I draw in class.  I didn't purchase any of my books for this semester. I synthesize the information I need by doing my best to actively participate in the conversation. I enjoy reading news stories and blogs. I keep myself informed about national security matters and the Buckeyes mostly via the interwebz. I spend most of my day researching and writing (too often, about our Buckeyes). One of the best tricks I've learned is how to extract the new information from a book without bothering with the rest.

For leisure, I prefer movies (a vastly underrated medium) and music because of their efficiency.

 That isn't to say reading is unimportant. However, many "readers" use the number of  books they've read to convince themselves they are smarter than others.

As for BSing to the top, many of the skills we learned at BTHS have served us well in life. For being so homogenous there was much socioeconomic diversity there. The school was small enough that there was more integration of the student body then there would perhaps be otherwise.  It was difficult to to put one's self in a bubble. Not being completely socially awkward has served us well.

I enjoyed reading your post. Sorry to hear about Pia.

As for downvotes, I knew I'd get them. It proves my point in a way. My point being that the relationship between people and animals is strange.

My fiancee at the time brought home a kitten that had just been born and abandoned by its mother. It was tiny and still in the fetal position. She bought a cat bottle and kitten milk but it wouldn't eat. I knew that she would cry if it died so I asked her for the little black kitten. I warmed it in my palms and said "you're going to live little kitty." I pried its jaws open and gave it the bottle. It drank! I raised that kitten until it became a cat. I named her Molly, because when she was still little and blind she used to dig around before she could walk like a mole. When I visit Molly she gets excited and grooms my hair. I have affection for Molly.

I still would not choose on my own to have another animal for reasons I've stated before. And, human/animal relations are odd. So odd that even saying so upsets humans.

11W has a predictable cycle. This is the time of year with the best posts. Come the start of the season, the site will be drowning in first timers that think this is BuckNuts. Some of the old-timers will disappear for a while, maybe they'll reappear and maybe they won't. Some of the newbies will become fixtures.

Cookie Crisp's recipe is different now and it's not as tasty. 

When I was a kid Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cereal was my favorite. Crunchy graham cracker ninja nets with various marshmallow shapes. Many times it would come with a bowl attached that is grotesque when you think about it. It's like someone killed a ninja turtle and you were eating out of his pried open shell as he looks on with lifeless eyes.

I was hoping this thread was about that wonderful book. It's one of my all time favorites.

Can't believe ol' Uncle 9er hasn't been mentioned yet.

Comment 22 Apr 2015

Haha are you trying to get me killed? Dog owners of DC fear not. This man jests!

My new paranoia reminds me of this classic NSFW banger. I am sure DJ loves this one.

Do you get a bit home sick seeing the "Life in C-Bus" ads at the Metro stations? Also, what part of town are you in? I'm near 14 & U.
