I think they were just picking off popular majors for comparison's sake. I'm sure there are plenty of players who are the only ones on the team with their major (e.g., there's probably one foreign language major, maybe an art history major). I doubt the entire team have only 7 majors. 

Comment 26 Aug 2015

Exactly. My favorite anecdote from the article: 

Especially in the offseason, that meant plenty of work for Marotti, who routinely butted heads with established team leaders. Such was the case when then-senior fullback/linebacker Zach Boren chose to stand up to the new staff in the midst of a particularly tough 5 a.m. workout.

"Zach was yelling, 'You will not break us!'" Buckeyes defensive tackle Adolphus Washington recalled. "And Coach Mick was like, 'Oh yes we will!'"

Coach Mickey knows what he's doing.

Worse -- "I'm a huge Buckeye football fan. But when it comes to basketball, I've been a Bearcat fan all my life." 

I can almost forgive someone living in Ohio for being a Dook/UNC fan (before I moved to North Cackalacky, I myself was a bit of a UNC fan (but not as much as my love of the Buckeyes) -- after living here a while, that fandom evaporated). But choosing Ohio State for football and UC for basketball is the worst kind of bandwagon fandom.

I know. And is it just me, or does it always get dusty when you're watching one of these videos? Such an amazing moment for guys who work so hard and still pay tuition. It's just me, isn't it. Oh well....

According to College Football Talk, it had A LOT of SEC In it. Like, all 14 teams represented. Makes you wonder why they'd include Vandy, Kentucky, Florida, etc.

Yeah, Georgia State is in the FBS. But just substitute Chattanooga for GSU and the point remains. Bama played Chattanooga in 2013 in a 49-0 nail-biter before losing to Auburn the following week, and Florida State plays them on November 21st, the week before their rivalry game with Florida.

The icon is AWESOME. Did the member benefits list include the icon? I didn't see it, but it should be referenced. Very cool. 

Comment 11 Aug 2015

Truth is, when Stewart was cornered without his staff and trained monkey's that made up his audience, he was remarkably shallow, unenlightened and very much unfunny.

That is demonstrably not true. You may disagree with his positions (in fact, based on your comment, I'm positive you disagree with his positions), but he is certainly not shallow and unenlightened -- and even when he's trying to be serious, he usually injects humor. But maybe Dennis Miller is more to your taste. To each his own.

His entire 'Bullshit Manifesto' (for lack of a better term) was pretty great, and definitely reflected the mindset of the show over the last dozen-plus years. 

Comment 11 Aug 2015

He did not "meet w/ the WH to coordinate things". He met with the President to discuss issues -- as Presidents do with many influential members of the media. If you watched his show, he addressed that kerfuffle. And if you watched his show, you'd know he takes this WH to the woodshed a lot -- much more than any Fox contributor ever criticized GWB.

Yeah, Frimmel. At the beginning of the comments section to the right it says "Show All Comments". Click that and all comments are visible.

Comment 06 Aug 2015

I mean, I guess one might be able to infer all of that from DJ's comment -- but none of that was implied, and I think it is offensive to take such a distorted reading of the comment, impose such subtext on it (without a reasonable basis for same) and call him out for it. While one might read the comment as sexual objectification of women, one might also read this 'analysis' of the comment as paternalistic objectification of women, as such analysis implies that Ronda doesn't have free will and couldn't have chosen to be with Cardale, and the only reason she was in his (hypothetical, imaginary) bed was because he "sacked" her. It also implies that Cardale's only interest in Ronda is as a conquest, which is insulting to Cardale. Frankly, I'm more offended by the analysis of the comment than by the comment itself.
