Doesn't sound good at all - let's see how TTUN responds to the allegations, but given recent revelations about former Harbaugh classes at Stamford this might be a sign of things to come for recruits to go there and don't perform on the field.

Sad, but at the very least players at most schools are offered 4 year scholarships - not a consolation to ending a young man's dream, but I do hope that Pipkins is able to both play somewhere else and finish up his education.

That's too bad - wish him the best of luck though.  I remember him being one of the ealier commits in that class.

I wish.  No this was in 2005 when Penn State was undefeated heading into that game and there was an obnoxious fan in the bar (kept saying over and over - "We are..." and then answering himself).

All those same people have our fight song as ringtones on my phone.  It irritates the hell out of them knowing it.

Well done GaBuck!

I taught my Dad the OH-IO chant back in 2004 (he was born and raised in Youngstown, but had never heard it before I took him to a Penn State vs. Ohio State game), and ever since he has used it at every possible opportunity imaginable (including on my wedding day during the best man speech, and every time he calls).  I apologize to all.

I dated a girl for most of college whose father went to TSUN and was a big fan of theirs growing up.  I once rooted for them at a bar when they played against Penn State.  I haven't been able to wash the shame off since.

Although I always loved playing basketball growing up, I'd have to go along with some of the above posts and go with golf.  Great pay, get to play on the best courses in the world, visit amazing places, and every 2 years (hopefully) beat up on some Europeans for the Ryder Cup.  And now you're also an Olympic sport so get to win a golf medal too!

All great points, and I wholly agree with your take on respect for both the players and staff.  I think the vast majority of the 11W community is amazing and positive, and I hope that shines through to anyone who reads the articles and comment section.  Honestly, and this is probably naive of me, but I never even considered actual players or recruits reading the comment section here, but I suppose since this is the #1 source for all things Ohio State Football they would inevitably be led here.

I joined the site just under a year ago, and it has easily taken over as my most visited website on a (multiple times) daily basis.  

So thank you for that take!

Just got ours done a few months back - we were between the Horizon and Panorama.  Seems like both good options, and the companies will work with you on costs as the testing is still fairly new (just make sure to call and confirm ahead of time with either one).

Comment 29 May 2015

First off, congratulations!

My wife and I are expecting our first little Buckeye as well - 17 weeks along today - and got the Horizon test done at around week 9 (with the results coming back week 12).  We got the test done to be prepared for anything as we're both planners, and to find out the sex of the baby.  Regarding the sex - what the genetecist told us is basically - if it's a boy, the test is pretty much 100% accurate, for a girl around 98%.

Aside finding out the sex, after reading up on the NT scan (the only one our insurance would pay for), it sounded like it was very inaccurate and prone to false positives (personally we knew of 3 other couples that were told their child was positive for Downs, only to be corrected later during the 18-20 week anatomy scan).  That was the other main reason for taking the Horizon test as well - much more accurate and earlier detection.

Anyway, that was our experience - I would lean towards either test as you'll feel much better about the results, but it's definitely a personal preference.  If you and your wife aren't worried about it, and don't want to know the sex of the baby anyway I would say you can skip it altogether.
