I'm impressed you got her.  What I mean is, there are usually only 1 or 2 attractive ones there out of each graduating class, so its surprising she escaped into your arms.

The thing is, the people that aren't trying anymore are the noise in the stadium.  THe people that can afford it, are not making any noise at all.  They literally have priced out the noise.

I said "we are going to F*****g lose this F*****g game because of your F*****g play calling you motherF*****" probably 10 times during the national championship game.

I am not proud of that moment.

That also annoys me.  I say THE to non-ohio state fans or alum just to get a rise out of them, but under no circumstance should a fellow alum or fan correct you.

First:

MAGEE SPRAGUE

When I was little my uncle gave me a Michigan State hat and it is still the comfiest, best hat I own. I secretly wear it around the house to this day

Second:

Ohio States new ticket pricing scheme has all but insured a super bowl type atmosphere where only the rich and corporation employees get to see the good games.  I find it sad as an alum that instead of bothering even looking at buying games in Columbus, I look for the best and closest away game.  I am going to the Wisconsin game this year, because it costs me half what it would cost me to go to one in Columbus.  I fear I will never get to take my daughters to a game when they are old enough to care.  As a father this affects me more than it probably should.

Lyme Disease?  You mean Celiac's disease right?  I thought Lyme's disease you got from ticks.

My daughter has celiac, and its really nice to find more and more places catering gluten-free.

How insane is it that we can get this kind of detailed information about a Coup?  It wasn't that long ago that if something like this was attempted, even if it failed, you never really knew who all the players were, but with technology now, its almost instantaneous.  Amazing, well, not for the guys who attempted the coup, but still....

I would like ot take a moment to point out to our new members, whom I only assume are the ones who used a downvote in this case, that this is NOT a comment to downvote.  It was a good comment.  Downvoting is not for your use when you disagree with someone's opinion or if they are a fan of another team.  Please see the rules, or find yourself another website.

This is true.  There would have to be a reduced pay item in the contract that would reflect injury.  Like the NFL would pay for all the injury related issues, and you would see a 30% paycut or something per game week you are injured.  

The biggest thing these guys should be negotiating is post-job medical expenses.  I would have that shit in ink.

Is that 7000 including food?  If so then it won't feel like a raise because 600 plus food and utilities would be more.  I'm not knocking dorms for their cost, but they are really crappy places to live for 2 years.  The amount of disease exposure alone should make anyone cringe.  Not saying off-campus living is all that sanitary either (especially frats), but at least they CHOSE to live there.
