Frankly, I have found it odd that Virginia Tech holds classes on this important national holiday, unlike many other major universities where it is not a class day.

Yeah, join the crowd. Is there anyone who doesn't find it odd that VT holds classes on Labor Day?!

Honestly, getting my wisdom teeth pulled was awesome. The couple of days afterward were some of the best days ever. I just slept, ate ice cream, and watched shark week. I don't understand why people think it sucks.

Umm, you might want to ask Ramzy about that.... (OK, his was tonsils, not wisdom teeth, but same principle)

Nick Saban after a loss (Also fairly rare): It is everyone's fault, but Alabama!

Actually, Saban -- and his players, frankly -- usually do blame themselves, but for reasons other than being the worse team. "We didn't want to be there." "We beat ourselves." "My players were too focused on the Draft." Rarely, if ever, do they admit "They were the better team." And as long as they make those types of excuses, they never have to admit they're not the best team. Not surprisingly, their fans adopt the same mindset. It's a shared delusion saving them from coming to terms with the changed CFB landscape. While Bama is a good team and may be in the playoffs again this year, they are not the best team.

Well, a 12W is an Army Carpentry and Masonry Specialist, so OBVIOUSLY Eleven Warriors is building a Headquarters Building along the Olentangy. It is rumored to be better equipped than Oregon's new training facility, complete with HDTVs on every wall, a bourbon bar and a building-wide cat maze, for DJ's "kids". 

Commented on 12W

Not to mention the Alabama schools have more bag men to help recruit in-state talent.

And are Alabama state HS players really that coveted? When the Buckeyes look south, they're always looking at Florida, Georgia and Texas. Has Tressel or Meyer ever gone hard after an Alabama high schooler?

Brussels Sprouts - grilled, roasted or fried. (Do NOT steam, boil or braise them -- soggy sprouts suck.)

Sriracha with hummus (I usually stir it up to make a nice scarlet concoction) is awesome.

Put that bull on the D line opposite Bosa!! I wonder if he has any eligibility left??

IIRC, the seating at Bristol is pretty steep, so maybe the first few rows of field seats would be farther away, but the cheap seats/nosebleeds may be just as close as in a CFB stadium. Just a guess. And I'd be shocked if the proposed game weren't south of the Mason-Dixon line and against an SEC opponent, whether it would've been played at Bristol or elsewhere. There's no way a top-tier team from outside the B1G is heading to Detroit or Indy for a big neutral site game.

YTown, I'm in a similar situation. A 13-mo-old with #2 coming in November. My wife & I were both dead-set against the minivan. She wanted a bigger SUV -- until a month ago. Now she's thinking minivan. We looked at the Honda Odyssey in the showroom, and it is pretty nice. Great features to help with kids, better mpg than any 3-row SUV, and less expensive than similarly equipped SUV. I know many, many parents who swore they would never get a minivan ... and then they did, and they love it. Get her a minivan -- she'll be happy, the kids will be happy, and you might just like it yourself.
