I used internet dating in the past, dated the wrong person and I wasn't ready.. That kind of turned me off.  Got tired of the mind games, girls getting offended easily, and the competition/needing  to maintain their interest.

I'm about to be 26 and now in my first relationship.  Been dating this girl for close to 6 months.  I was set up via a facebook message from a co-worker stating her and some others got to talking and thought I would be a good match for her sister who was single.  Decided what the heck and just started basic questions via facebook a couple times a week asking about her interests/hobbies. In our 6 months of dating, we have sent 1 emoji total.  If it shows how lost i was, My girlfriend's sister would ask my co-workers about how we were doing on our first dates, and gave them advice to pass along to me.  My co-workers actually came up with my 4th date idea which really seemed to get things more serious.  Relationships are a bit harder than I thought and make me realize where I need to grow.

Is it really a "big miss" if the player didn't want to come here and decommited?  My definition of big miss is failing to offer and recruit a player who is widely known to wanting to attend your school whether that be 3-5 star who ultimately is a good player-  Ex- Texas and J.T. Barrett. Ex- Ohio State B-ball with Nigel Hayes and Trey Burke.

I don't think this season's injuries are all that bad compared to previous years.  We still have our 5 starting O-line, QB, RB.  At WR we are missing Corey Smith, maybe Dixon (but he's never really established himself as a starter and bigtime player due to injuries).  Dontre plays through his injuries.  We aren't missing anybody at D-line.  Perry could be out 2 weeks, but that doesn't appear season ending.  Cam Burrow and Perry are really our only 2 starters out at this point.  

We may have some injuries to reserve players and special teams, but our starter's have largely remained healthy.  

Comment 19 Oct 2015

Eh, I didn't notice him.  But, I thought the 11 Warriors guy that breaks down  formations posted somewhere he was the guy that was supposed to have contain against penn state's runningback.

Comment 13 Oct 2015

Exactly.  Why would we bench Tyquan Lewis who has been great thus far.

Comment 09 Oct 2015

The grades issue doesn't exactly make sense to me..  Option A- As you mentioned, poor grades wouldn't be enough for a multi-game/indefinite suspension in themselve.  I could see poor grades with other issues resulting in the suspension though.. Option B- I could be off base here, but correct me if I am wrong.  if it is option B and he had an incomplete that turned into a failing grade where he is ineligible- Don't we have to forfeit the games that he played in to start the season? So, I can't imagine this staff just missed that he was ineligible and found out a couple weeks into the season.

Comment 09 Oct 2015

What's the thoughts on here.. Does Herman leave Houston after this year and become a head coach at a better program or does he stick around for another season there?  

Comment 19 Sep 2015

I disagree about giving a rookie like Bjorkstrand a spot on the 4th line.  Bjorkstrand is a top 6 skilled winger who is very small.  Either he plays in the top 9 here or we let him develop properly in Cleveland.  No use giving him limited ice time on a 4th line grinding group with Campbell at center.  Rychel can play a 4th line grinding role, but I think his future is a top 6 power forward, I'd rather him get good playing time..  Anderson on the other hand is probably a 3rd line/4th line checking/grinding forward as an NHL'er so I wouldn't be opposed to that if he impresses and beats out Boll/Borque.

Note- I love Bjorkstrand and think he's going to be a good NHL player.  I just believe in letting players develop in the minors ala the Detroit Red Wings and letting them play/figure out the roles that they will make the NHL.  I also knew Boll's extension would bite us in the long run, but we are stuck with it.  The only thing really holding us back in the next couple years is our cap/long term contract situation.  

Comment 19 Sep 2015

Been watching Stanford vs USC.  Wanting to see if USC was deserving of such a high rank and how they do against Stanford who can certainly pull off some mild upsets.  

Kevin Hogan is a baller though, has had some nice throws and playing with a sprained ankle.  They are inside USC's 15 in the 4th quarter up by 3 points.

Comment 14 Sep 2015

Yes, Price has obviously struggled.  But, I think it is too early just to bench him and start Knox.  Yes, Knox was a very highly rated 4 star prospect that is athletic, but I don't particularly care about recruiting rankings when they get into college.  Let's give the O-line some time to gel.  We are 2-0 and still the #1 ranked team in the nation with 2 "sound" victories.

I have faith that Urban and his staff know what they are doing and who needs to be playing.

Comment 01 Sep 2015

I'm sure all this "vagueness" that is being used by Meyer is an attempt to not give too much information away to Virginia Tech. They won't know who our starting QB is, or how much/and how we plan on using Braxton in the game.  That's two big variables to our strategy. 

We all know Ezekiel Elliot will have a chance to run the ball behind our offensive line, and I'm assuming Virginia Tech will try to stop that primarily with Fuller guarding Thomas.  I'm really curious to see who locks down the #2 opposite of Thomas,  and how often/and how we use Braxton.  A lot of question marks at Wide Receiver/H back right now, but we also have a lot of young recruited talent there, time to see if someone/who steps up much like Decker and Elflein did a couple seasons ago.

Comment 30 Aug 2015

We win a national championship and people feel the need to complain that Tyvis Powell, a returning 2 year starter and captain of the team, needs benched because he doesn't have the "potential" like Erick Smith.. I'm sure Erick Smith will get a good portion of playing time this year as it is. 

 I wish we had coaches that knew what in the hell they were doing.

Comment 26 Aug 2015

I use Netflix to fall asleep and watch an hour or so..

Blue Mountain State- Freaking hilarious- I've watched every episode about 3-4 times and it's still funny for me.

How I Met Your Mother- The last couple seasons are pretty bad, but I've started to rewatch episodes from the earlier seasons I'm reminded why I loved it.

Bates Motel- I really liked it and started to binge watch it as you learn to "feel" for Norman Bates and want to see him succeed.  This series hit me pretty hard as I related to Norman in high school.  But, I got caught up in it and started to get depressed from the darkness in the show especially after season 3, so I have to call it quits.

Agents of Shield- I love it, good time to get active before season 3 starts up this next month.

Scrubs- Somewhat decent/funny.  It's nice to sleep to.

Sons of Anarchy- Binge watch worthy for the first couple seasons. Don't really like the later seasons.

The Following- I loved the first 2 seasons of this show, well done.

The Killing- Likewise the first 2 seasons were good.  Avoid season 4- that was horrendously boring to watch.

Comment 26 Aug 2015

It's not the brightest idea to celebrate winning a race prematurely.. There are some real silent runners/breathers that can come by unnoticed..  I'm a tremendously slow sprinter, so I've been beat in a sprint many of times unexpectedly.

Towards one of the last races of my senior year, I passed a teammate at the finish line when he was jogging it in and took the 7th varsity spot with only 2 races remaining in the year.  My team ended up winning the large invitational so I took home a nice free t shirt, a medal, and a varsity position nearing the post-season where we were seriously looking at going to state.  Man, I pissed him off so damn bad by doing that.  Him and his dad both started to complain about how what I did was unfair the next couple weeks. 

Comment 24 Aug 2015

Do you even watch special teams?  He was great at that.

Curious, How many people on this team do you want to have the black stripe put back on?  If he doesn't deserve to have his black stripe off, then I imagine not many players on this team do per your example..

Comment 22 Aug 2015

He didn't look injured.. No trainer or coach looked at him.. He didn't try stretching or testing it out. 

But, your theory explains why the rest of his team avoided hanging out with him like the plague that night.  Not one player talked to him, stood near him, or even seemingly acknowledged his existence.

He's got a lot of work to do in his compete level before I would extend him a scholarship.

Comment 21 Aug 2015

I really think Prince Sammons is overrated by a few here.  I saw him play last November in the State Semi-Football Championships and he had a really poor game..  My alma-mater went right after him when he was at DE until he stopped playing defensive line by the 2nd quarter.  At offensive tackle he had a clear size/speed advantage but lacked heart/tenacity and he was getting beat on second efforts quite a bit by "outmatched" players on "paper. 

And for one of the weirdest things I have ever seen- At half time when they were down by about 14 or 21 points either the coaches or he himself took himself completely out of the game..He was standing 20 yards away from his teammates by himself with his helmet off while the other starters continued to play both ways, his quarterback who had to be carried off the field by teammates even came back in the game.  Only one person came to talk to him during that time- a coach who told him to put his helmet back on.. No players or teammates talked to him..

I've seen quite a bit of players get super upset and start doing low blows, cheap shots against my alma-mater a low division public school powerhouse, but I've never seen a player stand 20 yards away from everyone with their helmet and appear completely disinterested in a game.  I don't know if his coach took him out of the game for poor play, but I can't imagine he did himself any favors to any scouts or college coaches at the game.

My username is a combination of two of my nicknames that I used to go by when I was in college about 6 years ago.  Real name is Kory.  My dad was joking at the time and suggested that I try to give myself the nickname Hardkore.  It started to catch on.  Then my roommate's friend from college nicknamed me "Korthree/Kor3".  Since, that guy would call me "Korthree" for the next couple years whenever I would see him around, I kind of ran with that as well.

My avatar is of the Ohio State Hive.  It has always been my favorite entrance.  I used to emulate the Hive before my bigger cross country meets when I did runouts before a race to get myself jacked up.

Comment 15 Aug 2015

This is kind of difficult for me, I would like to go back to the players when I was a young kid- But, I caught the tail end of the Cooper years, and my dad is a "fair weather" OSU fan so I didn't catch many games.  First players I ever really liked were Doss and Gamble. Tressel really saved my interest in Ohio State football.  Took a liking to Hawk and Laurinitis story line. 

But, my favorite Ohio State player has to be Teddy Ginn Jr.  I often times find my favorite players in any sport being gritty, but Ginn was something else when he got the football.  Thanks to the person who provided his highlight tape on the forum, nice to relive some of his plays. 

Comment 10 Aug 2015

I couldn't watch it at a sports bar.. Too many people that scream and over-react after every single play, and if it's not going well the insane views start coming out.  Prefer to watch games with my dad, who doesn't care much about OSU football anymore, even-keeled and we can usually break down the games a bit and discuss strategy.
