For the sake of the Big Ten I hope so, but Norfolk State could make a new low possible.
I never understood the reason for bringing Rutgers in - I grew up in the northeast, lived in NYC (the TV market they were apparently after) and now reside in CT - and I don't think I've ever encounted a Rutgers football fan.
Even the people I know who went to Rutgers didn't care about their program and still don't!
I guess that explains why I was able to buy season tickets (though I didn't) for less than they're charging for just the Ohio State game...
Normally I would say parents should let the kid make their own choice, but with his background, inside knowledge, etc. I don't think KJ is going to make a poor decision for his son.
If still interested I'd be down - not sure if anyone has done these before but auction drafts are a lot more exciting. My league has been doing one for 5 years now and I think it's the best way to draft - you're able to build your own team as you want.
Starting Quarterback Decision Close to the Vest
I'm going to assume this is a double entendre and Urban is going to pull a move so bold Tressel is the only one who knows...
Cam Johnston, come on down...
Both floral costs sound high to me, but then again it all depends on how big of a wedding you're having. I know some florists will quote the highest rate since they'll plan to use the most expensive flowers, flying them in since they may not be in season at the time locally, and hence costing you a ton more than it should. I would suggest not just getting a base quote, but asking what that includes, what kind of flowers, etc. Then as others have said you can figure that into the total cost of the wedding to determine really how much you want to be spending on flowers.
One suggestion though - don't cheap out on the photographer. Outside of the venue (which included food, flowers, etc.), ours was the most expensive cost of the wedding, but well worth it when you look back and see all of the thousands of photos taken that day.
Note to self: donate all of my blue shirts.
While it might be simple, it's the most comfortable t-shirt I've ever owned. Seriously thinking about buying more of them since Nike always seems to discontinue the shirts I like most:
$50 for a dirty dorm room?!? Isn't being a slob and having messy roommates part of the college experience?
Can we send a 'Get Well Soon' card signed by all of the 11W members?
Losing Noah Brown for the season hurts (I feel terrible for him given the position he put himself in to start this year as well), but more so against VT given the suspenions. Losing one quality WR is hard enough, losing four for the first game of the season will make that matchup even harder. Urban will have to change his gameplan some, but on the plus side our defense remains healthy and can be the difference maker in that game.
Season 1 of Broadchurch - the BBC version, not the terrible remake by Fox. One of the best stand alone seasons I've ever seen. I actually stopped watching the show after that one season because I didn't want it ruined like other shows had been that went well past their prime...coughDextercough.
I live a pretty short drive (less than 2 hours) from Rutgers, and was looking to attend with my dad and brothers, but as you noted in the original post the single game tickets are almost as expensive as buying season tickets. I'll probably still find somewhere to go for the game, but unless prices take a big drop closer to game time I'll likely not be attending in person.
I'm glad reading all of the positive responses throughout this thread. I have to admit that I've felt like a poser at times going to Ohio State bars to watch games that are mostly filled with alumni, but going to OSU was never an option for me unfortunately. I was born in Youngstown though and have been watching games with my Dad on weekends for as long as I can remember. Was born and raised a Buckeye fan and hope to pass that love along to the next generation.
Salad most likely - I have neither the time nor energy to work out, so to try and not get too fat I'm forced to watch what I eat most days. That usually allows me something a little more substantial, but with the wife 6 1/2 months pregnant now our dinners have drifted towards her cravings - generally great food that I can't complain about (pizza, pasta, etc.), but it's forced me to change my breakfast and lunch habits.
Nothing against him - I think he's a pretty good announcer, and manages to give his opinion now without showing bias, which is tough for someone who announces as many games as he does.
Any specific reasons do you think why we haven't seen as many black stripes being removed at this point in the year versus last (10 vs. 3 according to the article)? I know it's really early still, but just curious.
Happy Birthday - and thanks for starting this site! I don't know what else I would read when I should be working during the day if you hadn't...
I was at Blondie's on the upper east side in NYC (a Big Ten bar) watching the game - I still remember how everyone was pulling so hard for Appalachian State...was like watching the NCAA tournament with a group of strangers rooting for the underdog. Great day.
Nice, like the Casablanca reference.
