I'd guess you live somewhere near-ish to Pensacola, and this is the attitude I get from all the Bamas around here as well. Some are not too bad and will just make comments about how much I have to be enjoying being a Buckeye down here, but others make excuses like they always have.

My degree is the same as the one students on campus earn and is ABET accredited, so I shouldn't have any issues with it being online. I'm actually not sure if there's a way anyone would know without me telling them. That probably wouldn't be the same with the MGEL degree since it appears to be exclusively online. You bring about a good point that I overlooked because it's fairly common to see online degrees in the community I'm currently working in. To be honest, it's probably about 60% name and 40% education. Graduating from tOSU is important to me as silly as some may think it is, but it's worth it to me. I looked at Penn State, Purdue, Wisconsin, and Florida, but I keep coming back to tOSU for better or worse. I keep telling my wife I'm going to apply to MIT and move her back North if I get accepted.

Thanks for the reply. I've taken online classes from other schools as a transient student and it's definitely frustrating when they are poorly executed. The big draw to that specific degree program at tOSU is that it's advertised as 100% online. All of the classes say they can be taken online, so I should be good there.

I don't know if there's a future at BAH for me. I'm about done relocating every few years, and that seems to be pretty standard. It's a great company, but I'm tired of moving. Ultimately, my goal is to run my own development team and eventually start my own engineering company. A few buddies from the Marine Corps/Navy who have also deployed as contractors have been kicking around the idea of doing just that. We have the cash to make it happen, we just need the experience/education. I've looked into getting an MBA, but that just doesn't interest me. I'd rather someone else handle that, and do something I enjoy.

Let him. Living where I live, these people bring it up almost daily. It gets exponentially more pathetic the further we get from 2008.

Beanie and our defense won the game for us, but I almost broke my ankle jumping over my coffee table on this play.

Done. Only one in Pensacola, FL so far. I know there are lots of other Buckeyes here though.

No Internet? Sounds like you made my service possible. :)

We have something similar at UWF called ArgoNet. It's been pretty good and fairly intuitive. It definitely makes the classes easier to follow. One thing that has annoyed me about online courses has been the final exams. Many of my "fully online" courses require me to come on campus to take my finals, or jump through hoops to figure something out for a proctor. Any problems like that in the courses you've taken online so far?

I live in Florida now, and absolutely refuse to root for a conference. That's the SEC way. I don't care how Illinois is doing against South Dakota State Community College. Ohio State football has been fun to watch for the better part of my life and the rest can keep losing for all I care. 

Comment 17 Jul 2015

Yep. The Florida State fans are terrible too. They beat Auburn, so they started claiming all of those MNC's too for some reason. Beating Oregon after they stomped the Seminoles out ended that too.

I've never hidden my Buckeye pride, and hearing "Roll Tide" and SEC chants was beyond obnoxious. The only thing I get around here now are stares and the occasional "O-H!" or "Go Bucks!". It's like living in a different world.

Best win: National Championships and beating Michigan are all at the top, but other than those beating Alabama was amazing. I live in Florida, just across the border from Alabama and I've been hearing the SEC crap for years. That game alone shut them all up. 

Worst loss: The MNC loss to LSU was worse for me than Florida. I was in Iraq for both, but I really felt like we should have won against LSU. Beanie did great in that game and a better game plan shuts the SEC machine down before it even starts.

Ohio State put 28 in a row on them before Bama responded. They recovered, but it wasn't enough, especially after an 85 yard TD run. I don't think Bama is broken, but they were finally exposed on a national stage.
