Born and Raised in Youngstown (Poland)  - Graduate of Youngstown State University (Tressel Era) - Moved to Los Angeles in 2004 (Hollywood, Torrance, and Pasadena) - Buckeyes have always been a passion that I put a lot of time into - My bro in law was on the practice squad in the late 80's and a 2 of his brothers dotted the I.

Shame on the OP for even making this a topic, so tired of hearing this nonsense. Can August get here already?

There was also a story about how these farmers that get water for almost nothing were selling it to other entities and generating more revenue than what their crops produced.

Go after the real problem, corruption is everywhere in CA

The greedy politicians and unions haven't found a way to make money off of the desalination yet, once they do we'll have more water than we know what to do with.

I am no genius but I am willing to bet that there are 3 men on the roster now that will no longer be here when the Buckeyes suit up for the VT game.

Too young, a loss is just the kool-aid Russell needs to realize he needs one more year...

I woke up January 7th 2014 weighing 255, ahh who am I kidding 260 and decided that day that I was going to change my life. I already have a son who was about to turn 4 and a daughter on the way in March, I want to make sure I'm there for them as long as possible.  I had wanted to do this for a long time, I was 38 and kept putting it off, "I'll start next week", "next month", "new years" but always had excuses as to why I couldn't start.  A switch flipped that day and I started going to the gym on a daily basis. I had to revamp my entire diet and for 3 or 4 months I only ate egg whites, brown rice, chicken breast and steamed green vegetables. I would have one cheat meal a week usually Saturday evening.  I built myself up at the gym and was eventually able to do 60-90 mins on the elliptical. I didn’t really start lifting weights until April or May, when I started building muscle the weight really started coming off and my physique really started changing.  I had purchased a fitbit flex in October of 2013 and thought that would be the motivation I needed but that alone wasn't enough.  I can honestly say that the fitbit is an amazing tool when combined with myfitnesspal for tracking your caloric intake vs calories burned, it's not exact but it worked for me.  Anyway, by August I was at about 190 and really wanted to challenge myself, I signed up for the RoseBowl Rock and Run, a mud run.  I was hoping to just finish, but I was able to finish in the top 20 out of 150 in my age group.  I currently am between 195 and 200 which is good for my size and I feel comfortable there. 

I write this not to brag and not for votes but as proof that even if you work 60 hours a week, have kids and whatever you have going on in your life you can do this too.

Not that they are garbage but they really are underachievers.  Slam Thompson had a better season last year (IMO), he hasn't grown into the leader he could have.  Just being realistic, we're always hearing about how "Thad has some talent" and it seems unless we have a Oden or Sullinger caliber player we're just not able to compete. Is it August yet?
