Actually, that is not the case.  You can go back many years and look at instances when Matta was out coached by counterparts with similar or slightly less talent.  There is a reason that he has no national championships yet has had the best team on more than one occasion....

Alas, I'm not going to argue with you because you will continue to see Thad as a great coach.  Hopefully he can stop the recent regression and ramp up player development....

Honestly, he is right.  Matta is a great recruiter but average game day coach.  He has issues with adjustments, finding the proper rotation, and player development (although this is somewhat difficult to gauge because the big players only stay for a season)....

That being said, you are right, OSU is a football school - not a basketball school and Thad is a better hoops coach than we have had in my lifetime.  

Bottom line, are there better coaches?  Yes.  However, OSU has shown the inability to find and retain one.  And, until we do, we shouldn't give Thad too much shit.  I do hope that his ability to land multiple big-time recruits doesn't wane though,....

LOL - nearly 20 years ago.  Clinton has done a lot of good since then.  Other than running up a tab with the government over the inappropriate use of campaign funds, what has Larry Craig done since he was busted trying to suck a cock at the airport in Minny?

fuck yeah!  So fired up that I almost began singing on the bus. Funny enough, considering I'm on the bus through the les of NYC, no one would notice or care. 

Comment 07 Jan 2015

I'll be at Manny's as well.  Much better than the Iron Bar and I hated Tonic when it was the game watch location a couple of years ago.

FWIW - I've never been there, but I know that the Pour House in Hoboken used to get a good OSU crowd.

Definitely a violation that we want no part of.  If this was allowed, we would not need to raise money.  The school would happily pay.  Additionally, we have boosters with the resources to put everyone's parents on a plane and rent the Ritz in NO for the week.  I wish we could help but it's a flaw in the system....

This guy charges for photos?  That's absurd.

Even worse, I can't believe that someone would pay one of those losers for a picture.  I wouldn't waste the photo....

BTW - if anyone is serious about selling, LMK how to contact you so we can figure out what you have and what you want for it.  I'm only looking for a single bottle, as that's all I'd be able to afford.  Preference to Pappy 20.  Also open to BTAC with preference to GTS, WLW, and ER17.

Comment 14 Nov 2014

10 and 12 are good but they aren't pappy.

Comment 14 Nov 2014

Honestly, I've only had the 20 a couple times but I really enjoyed it.  I generally don't spent anything close to $500 for a bottle of bourbon, however I'd do it once for a bottle that I'd probably have for a year - especially considering my wife and I started really enjoying bourbon together, however she is in the midst of 9 months without drinking.....

Although the secondary market prices are really high, Pappy is impossible to find in NYC so the secondary market is my only option, although I haven't been able to pull the trigger yet.

Congrats to those that scored a bottle...

Love rare craft beers, although I most enjoy rare Belgian lambics.

I try to make semi-regular trips to Hill Farmstead (from NYC).  I'm a big BA stout guy though.  Just opened the 2014 Barrel Aged Mexican Cake set, which was good, but not as good as the 13 set.  

Comment 14 Nov 2014

I'd buy the 20 for $500 and the 10 for $150.  Are they still available?

Comment 04 Nov 2014

If OSU wins, things will likely play out in our favor.  Galloway is probably wrong. A 1-loss OSU with with wins over Nebraska and MSU will likely make the playoff, given the teams that play each other and will lose in front of us.   

Comment 04 Nov 2014

Agreed, which kinda blows because I live in 80th Street - about a block and a half from Blondies.  Was always fun to stumble home, not like Manny's is a bad trip though.  Cheers until Saturday!

Comment 04 Nov 2014

Hey All -

If I buy a pair of tickets from myself and my wife and we wind up not being able to attend, are the tickets transferable?  As of now, we would be able to attend, however I'd be traveling for the holidays and get somewhat concerned with flight delays due to weather and stuff.

Thanks.  This seems like a great event!

Hey Guys - 

The Alumni Association meets at The Iron Bar, which is on 8th Ave near the Port Authority.  My wife and I have made it to several games there this year (we live on the UWS), however we prefer Manny's, which is where we went for the game on Saturday.  

A warning regarding Blondies - the also serve as an MSU bar and the OSU crowd has decreased somewhat from past years.

I hope to see some of you guys at Mannys this Saturday.  LMK if anyone is up for a beer in the are before the game kicks off.
