Keep in mind the game starts at noon. Saturday morning traffic is pretty light. You could stay in old town Alexandria or Crystal City & get a pretty good hotel rate. Both areas are served by the Metro for sightseeing other than the game.
Cardale could be a good red zone QB a la freshman Tebow.
I remember Cooper pimping Pony shoes.
Assembly Hall parallels St. John in an another way: There was an engineering study in the 1970s over concern the balconies would collapse. An extreme amount of movement was felt during a rock concert and for a while the upper portion was closed.
With the benefit of hind sight, it may have been best for all to build a joint arena on the Lennox site for NHL/OSU basketball/concerts and a Covelli-style arena for other sports, and a 5,000 seat hockey arena.
Keep in mind the athletic dept. has a policy for substance abuse. IIRC, third offense is year suspension.
When are they heading to Tallahassee? When is FSU convening the Dept. of Education Star Panel? There is a stronger case against Winston than Gibbons.
Have man bag with 9mm and cell phone to call Chloe for satellite, will travel.
Correction. Duck Commander. Duck Dynasty is the TV show owned by A&E. The WVU Mountaineers with their musket-toting mascot is another natural.
I predicted the self-report for smokeless tobacco last fall when SI did the story about Tom Herman in the coach's box. The reporter listed his materials as including a spit cup.
This is not the first time OSU has done this. They reported Vrabel in his first year.
There are numerous ways to account for athletic revenues. For example, OSU allocates Buckeye club revenues to the athletic dept. while other schools allocate it to football. The last official Dept. of Education stats I saw said thirteen schools made a profit with OSU being one at <$100K.
As for the $17M, I bet they're not counting the payments for bonds financing the Schott or Ohio Stadium renovation. On top of that, the athletic dept. pays the university $1M to use the facilities. That's like paying a mortgage and rent on the same building. I had an athletic dept. person tell me it was cheaper to play a game at Nationwide than the Schott.
Surprised no one has mentioned Taxi. The scene of Reverend Jim taking the driving test is the funniest in TV history.
I recall Evan's love for Waffle House. I remember a story in the Plain Dealer from his rookie season about taking a cab in Cleveland to eat before the game and having his highest point total to date. As 11W has demonstrated, there are infinitely more Waffle Houses per capita in Indiana than eastern PA. I expect a corresponding increase in scoring.
If you have a life-threatening condition, you shouldn't play football. It's like Hank Gaithers with Marfans.
Troy Calhoun and RichRod appeared on successive days on the Tim Brando Show. They differed on several points: 1) Calhoun says they always talk rules changes on Monday afternoon of the AFCA convention. All coaches are welcome & he didn't reach out to Saban. RichRod claims he knew nothing about the convention session. 2) Both say change for sake of scheme is wrong. 3) Calhoun says there is no data base, but there must be concern for safety of the players. Specifically he pointed to the player that died in Cal conditioning and an NFL player that died on the field while he was a coach for the Broncos. He has a current player they monitor closely during conditioning. The medical issues appear to be asthma and sickle cell anemia. My opinion is if a player has a potential life-threatening condition, he shouldn't be playing. It's like allowing Hank Gaithers to play with Marfan's and die on the court. Blake Thomas got a medical scholarship due to his spine condition. The same should hold true for life-threatening breathing issues. Next, if a player has a breathing issue, he should take a knee and exit under an injury timeout. I would change the rules so he couldn't reenter during the possession to give time for recovery and proper medical evaluation. I also would not permit other defensive substitution unless the offense substitutes.
B1G Presidents won't allow Thursday night games after school in session. That is what lead to creation of BTN when ESPN demanded it.
One of the Northwestern complaints is players playing as freshmen don't get a fifth year to go to grad school like players who redshirt. Contrast that to Alabama where the 4th yr. player who graduates is booted for cap space. Northwestern builds its success on 5th yr. players.
Paris as Capitol of Germany was answer to joke popular after German reunification.
Saban just wants to get down and distance packages on the field. Now you'll see offenses substitute at about the 15 second mark to take advantage of the defense on the field. Call the play first, then get the players on the field and the defense can't react.
I posted elsewhere if the concern is preventing injuries, limit cut blocking. With the Air Force coach on the committee, that's not going to happen.
Limit on cut blocking would do more to prevent injuries.
Where did your friend sign?
I think Brando is hoping for another "You're a good man , Tim" clip he can play ad nauseum.
Curious about the renovation going on in WHAC so soon after the last renovation. Trying to outdo Bama's waterfall?
Hope Jamarco remembers that speech. I look forward to him doing for the rest of the special teams what he did for kick offs.
