That's exactly the type of thing my FIL would say.  Glad to know there are others out there facing the same "struggle", haha, 

Comment 01 Feb 2016

Well said.

And I do have a couple buddies who fancy themselves as big time OSU fans, so it is always fun to drop solid background info on some freshman they barely know, or the backstory of how a kid has looked in fall practice, etc,   For that I am eternally grateful to the 11W.

Couldn't agree more with the sentiment that it makes it really hard to talk to the "average OSU fan" armed with all the knowledge we get here (FOR FREE!!).  

But I think that just forces you to tailor the conversation to the knowledge level of the fan you are talking to.   A perfect example is my father in law - very superficial fan, watches the games, knows nothing more than the current headlines, doesn't follow recruiting at all, doesn't necessarily understand many of the nuances of the game, etc, but I still have OSU conversations with him because I know he is making an effort to talk about something I really enjoy and I totally appreciate that. And it scores me points with my wife, which is always a plus. 

 And - when you do get to have a conversation with a fan who is your "OSU knowledge equal" how amazing is that? Reading 11W religiously means you are always going to be the smartest guy in the room.

I am slightly embarrassed to admit I spent a weekend in Kenton at the Coon Dog Field Trials many years ago.   It was a blast, from what I hazily recall.   Riding 4 wheelers around all night long, drunk as skunks, and watching the Amish guys that snuck over get hammered was a special treat.  Oh to be young again.....

Parris Campbell as an extreme longshot?  I have a feeling Samuel will be more of a workhouse back and they may want to avoid having him get more wear and tear returning punts.   Wilson seems to be the most likely candidate, but there are at least a bunch of options.

I love Herman as much as the next guy, but he comes off as an argumentative, overly sensitive whiner in this case.   As someone said above, just stay away from these radio clowns - you have nothing to gain by doing it and they have nothing to lose by goading you into an argument.

Yea, I am more aligned to your thinking.   OU on the road with an inexperienced team is a tough ask, so I could see us dropping that one.   Outside of that I like our chances in every other game.   The road team has done very well in the Sparty series recently, Wiscy is not the same threat it used to be and we get Michigan at home next year (and Harbaugh will still be coaching them, so that's a W).  And State Penn will do the white out thing and we will spank them in their house again, ho hum.

Is the "Go to a strip club" stage next? I am ready for that myself.

Z Nation is clearly not a great show, but I watch it too.   The writing is dreadful, the acting is weak and the effects are lame, but I still watch it with my kids, who also find it completely ridiculous.  But we keep watching for some reason!  "Guilty pleasure" describes it perfectly.

Great comic and far too unknown/underappreciated, in my mind anyway.   Would love a review since I wont be able to catch him  in Cleveland this weekend.

You have to read the section of thr MTV autobiography that talks about this video. Basically, Squire allowed the director to talk him I to "prancing" around like that and told him it would look great after post production. Long story short, Squire went from selling out arenas to headlining bars in less than 2 years. He pretty much blames this video for ruining his career. And he is right.
