I feel as though it is going to get worse before it gets better (if it ever does) for Baylor. It will be interesting to see if his son is promoted to HC.
Yep. Just double checked. We picked it up on Hotwire for a pretty good price given the quality and location.
Thanks for the updated listed. We are staying at the Kenzie Hotel so downtown spots is where we will likely focus. The Cubs have day games on Saturday and Sunday so we might head up to Wrigleyville to hang out a bit before the game. We don't have any specialize itinerary so its basically a go where ever we want kind of weekend.
Yea I live in downtown-ish Columbus so not really out of my element. Plus we found cheap flights so we won't even have a car up there. Between the gas/parking/maintenance check up the flight should be faster and easier so long as TSA doesn't take forever to get through.
Making the trip up this weekend with the Roommate. I fully intend on eating at every location listed and providing a detailed report when I come out of my food coma.
I just checked the math and you are correct. In order to go undefeated in the playoffs it is best to not lose.
A buddy's dad used to smoke whole hogs for people. Not sure exactly what he would charge for it but usually during the summer it seemed like he was doing one a week or so. I would guess he made enough money to pay off the smoker in one summer.
Anyone had a chance to ride Valravn yet? I'm hoping to check it out this summer.
Also, I'm a fan of Firehawk at KI. The first turnover/drop is unique. Also Gatekeeper is a pretty nice ride.
The guy scored 87 touchdowns in one game?!? That is an impressive record.
I wouldn't touch BGSU. I like Oklahoma (even if that is a loss it is a touchdown game I think). I would absolutely hammer Wisconsin. I thinkyou will get better value on Michigan later in the season (especially if OSU loses to Oklahoma). I could see that line dropping ~4.
A lot of people think on air television talent is overpaid (and in many cases I think it is) but you don't often see the behind the scene preparation the really good ones have to put in to be great.
Mike Tirico was on the DP show the other day talking about how he rarely watches movies because he has to study for the next event he is covering. Gruden covers one game a week but some of the main play by play guys can see 3 different games in three different sports a week.
Bearcat football isn't a large program market in the sense that its only people from Cincy or alums that follow it. But Cincinnati itself is the 36th largest TV market and the city of Cincinnati has a national appeal.
If I'm a conference who is looking to add: 1) a good school; 2) solid athletics; and 3) more tvs to raise more money for the school (i.e. the Maryland and Rutgers effect) then Cincinnati is a viable option of the schools that may be available.
UC and Houston are not terrible options. Both relatively large markets for media and name recognition. UC gets teams into Ohio recruiting and give WVU a close "rival".
The main issue is the Longhorn Network is a terrible idea. A Big 12 network has more appeal and can make a lot more money for the schools.
Because he was the second best receiver on a top tier team and is now going to get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to play football next year. Do you actually think he becomes a first round pick by staying in school another year?
Laremy Tunsil asked if he took money from a coach. "I'd have to say yeah."— Hugh Kellenberger (@HKellenbergerCL) April 29, 2016
Umm so this is getting awkward.
What do you mean next year? We have 6 more rounds to do.
I don't think they will actually take Lynch as they have bigger needs and can probably get him in the 2nd round. I would have picked Lawson or Ragland but both of those guys were gone. Either way the JETS will be booed.
The J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets select:
Paxton "I Hope I Don't Get Punched In the Face" Lynch
It wouldn’t be draft season without talk of the Jets possibly/maybe/potentially taking a quarterback. This year, that QB is Lynch. The hope is a first round QB will put some pressure of Fitzpatrick to resign. Lynch will sit for a year or two in order to learn the pro style offense before being inserted as the starter.
Lets warm up the crowd for the upcoming pick:
Well at least it is pretty realistic then.
I'll go J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets.
I'll take a team if there is one available.
Does Art Briles survive this scandal and if not does it impact any specific recruits?
(Note: I get the story is much bigger than recruiting but this is the question only for Birm's mailbox)
Very confused right now. I read on the internet that Urban held routine free drug parties at his house but now someone is telling me that is a lie. The internet is always true.
