My ex's grandfather had it, and unfortunately passed away.  Of course he was in his 70's and waited until he had a fever of 103 for several days before his wife was finally able to get him to seek medical attention.  Being younger should help you out, but from my experience this isn't something that you want to mess with.

Another thing to think about is that most of these guys have probably played football since they were in the 4th grade.  I know my freshman year at OSU it was strange not being a part of a team and having a practice schedule to keep.  If you were graduating and were getting a lot of D2 or D3 offers, but knew that you wanted to go to Ohio State for a certain academic program it makes sense to walk on if you/your family could handle the financial burden of paying your own way.  You have access to world class training facilities and staff, plus all of the free gear they get.  In addition the status of being an Ohio State football player will be a conversation starter for the rest of your life and may very well open some doors for you that playing for Grand Valley State or Mount Union would not.

Thanks CB that is helpful.

Actually the new feature makes your statement false.  Most of this will show up as collapsed by default.  And, even if it didn't, you could handily click collapse on Silver's original post and it all collapses.  So, that's actually one arrow, not "a lot of arrows."

Correct it is collapsed, but I wanted to read it.  To do that I have to click on a lot of arrows.  In your mind it might be better to only see a half dozen comments that you feel are pertinent to the discussion, but I am not of the same opinion.  I don't think the "terrorists" are saying go back to the old system, instead all they are saying is bring a show all posts button to the forum topics as well as the front page articles.

I consider you part of the problem because your rant has made this whole forum topic unreadable without clicking a lot of arrows.

I can't wait to do the same to the posters who I think are ridiculous and absurd and who spend more time bitching about the site, conversations on the forums, or what our assistant coaches are wearing after we win the National championship.

But I like reading the thousandth post about Braxton switching to WR without having scroll through all that gobbledygook.

So is it against the unwritten rules if Jason posts the first comment on one of his threads?  He can't get upvotes, but something about it still seems strange.

I was scratching my head when he threw his hat in the ring to run for the House of Representatives, but after talking to him a few times I can see he was one of those people that would be successful no mater what he decided to do.  Great guy.

I might have to go check that one out.  Both of those teams are in the playoffs seemingly every year.

Comment 05 Aug 2015

Agreed. I drive through that area a lot and last year I don't think I passed a single car around 7pm on a Friday night.  It didn't make sense at first, but when I got to New Bremen and saw they had a home game it kind of clicked.  The last time I watched a game in that area was from the sidelines my sophomore year in HS when Marion Local was in the process of giving us a thorough ass whooping.

They need to poach some of that talent back from Liberty Benton and Van Buren.  Maybe they can call up Senator Hite and see if he can come back and coach in his free time.

Comment 05 Aug 2015

It's still kind of humorous to me that in that conference you might not win the conference, but you can still win the state championship. 

Comment 05 Aug 2015

Grove is another team that's always a powerhouse in the region.  I like your chances against against both.
