I know you are already banned, but Ohio State doesn't harbor rapists and those who cover up for them, in addition, we don't put concussed players onto the field and then claim ignorance of the fact afterwards.  But I guess owning a business or selling items won on the field that are your personal belongings is a worse offense and constitutes "operating beyond the rules of the NCAA for years".  Because it is more important to obey the money grabbing NCAA than to protect human beings and to obey local, state, and federal laws.

Hey, be nice to the guy.  Obviously it's better to go play football at scUM and end up in prison where you have healthcare, free cable and internet, and don't have to worry about finding work for the rest of your life.  Clearly this is a better situation than going to OSU and having and being relegated to finding and keeping a full time job your whole life.

The ironic thing is that success in negotiation requires talking your way into success, and recruiting = negotiation.  So Jay Harbaugh is basically saying that he will never be successful at recruiting.  He's probably right if this is his strategy.

Apparently you don't know what the diamond formation is, either.  Here:  http://www.elevenwarriors.com/2013/04/21155/ohio-state-spring-practice-embracing-the-diamond-formation

Jim Harbaugh pioneered the use of the diamond formation at San Francisco.  Because of Ohio State's traditional dominance running the football, and our embarrassment of riches at RB, it was an idea we entertained briefly at Ohio State, and Urban Meyer, as referenced in the article I linked to, tinkered around with it some in the 2013 off season.  We have since never ran it during an actual game.  Since Harbaugh pioneered it, and if we were to use it at Ohio State now that Harbaugh is at Michigan, people like you would probably accuse us of copying off of Michigan (or their coach) therefore I do not want to see us use it now (although maybe a variant with 3 QBs and a RB would be interesting).  So my post is completely warranted and has nothing to do with a fixation on your team's coach given the original comment that I was replying to (which if you can't laugh at that post comparing the pyramid scheme to the diamond formation, then I'm sorry for your miserable existence).

Also, the only reason I would need to hold my nuts at the Big House is to prevent them from becoming infected with whatever filth is keeping your students from attending games there.  It certainly won't have anything to do with the score of the game.

I don't understand why anyone actually allows fan votes to ever count for anything (unless it actually is supposed to be a popularity contest).  People will vote according to the team/individual they are rooting for and will often cheat using scripts to skew the voting a certain way.  Anyone that doesn't vote for Logan Stieber (which is 49% of the voters, apparently) knows nothing of wrestling or has a favorite that they are biased towards.  This vote is proof that these polls should not be used to decide these kinds of awards.

Talk about a kick in the nuts.

I've seen this coming for the past year or so.

Seem like you had a year where you could have purchased a scro-guard and saved yourself some pain.  

Comment 25 Mar 2015

Whether this ends up being permitted by OSU Compliance and the NCAA or not, I think this is getting overblown.

There are NCAA standards for how much money student-athletes are permitted to earn while working legit jobs, and if they are overpaid by as little as $5 (see Devier Posey) you get hammered.  So if Braxton earns within the allotted amount based on referrals and commissions, he should be fine.  Any excess and he loses eligibility.  I don't think the use of his celebrity to make sales really matters provided his earnings stay low.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

I don't think you know what the Diamond Formation is.  

Actually, now that Jim Harbaugh is at Michigan, I hope we never actually use it (Urban once was looking at how the 49ers used it a few years ago).  And I hope Michigan uses it and they lose 10 yards every time.

Comment 25 Mar 2015

So an organization that makes money with lies and deceit investigating companies that make money with lies and deceit?  Lol.

Comment 24 Mar 2015

I find it ironic that a thread titled "Road Warriors" is about flying.

"Roads?  Where we're going, we don't need roads!"

Comment 24 Mar 2015

I have gotten many a strange look yelling OH at people in airports (who are wearing buckeye gear).  If you are wearing buckeye gear and someone yells OH, at least have the courtesy to reply with IO rather than looking at me like I'm an idiot...

Comment 24 Mar 2015

To be fair, kicking to Ginn's side of the field at all should constitute a miss, if he doesn't house it, he'll at least get his 35 yards.  Don't kick it to Ginn (NFL teams haven't all figured that out yet, either).

Comment 24 Mar 2015

If the return team also vacates half the field, what's to stop us from short-kicking it to the empty space and having a guy sprint to the ball before the return team can react?  Or maybe Urban is just saving that for a rainy day?

This is exactly why I have location services turned off on my android phone.  I turn GPS on simply to use navigation and it goes right back off.  And yet Google can still tell me (without asking) where I am located on my work computer (and our internet gateway resides in Indiana but it tells me I'm in Columbus still).  

If you watch the show "Person of Interest" -- Samaritan is real.  Fear it.

Excel is still better than sheets, and with SharePoint you get the same ability to share files to allow access to the same version in a common location.  See my post above about SharePoint.

Comment 24 Mar 2015

I'm usually more pro-google and anti-microsoft, but Microsoft SharePoint is a very good tool for collaboration and file sharing and is browser-based.  It can also integrate with Office 365 for completely browser-based productivity.  The advantage is also that you run it on your own server, you don't have to host it with Microsoft.  Google Drive and Google Docs are great but Google ultimately has access to all your stuff and it wouldn't surprise me if they share data with the government.  Plus, Office 365 means you get better support and functionality on your documents and presentations than you would with Google Docs.  And a corporate Office 365 licence usually allows your employees to install the full versions of Office on their computers if they prefer rather than being forced into browser based editing and presenting.

Let's not forget that UAB (whose football program was just axed by the same people probably running this basketball coaching search) just won an NCAA tournament game, whereas UA-Tuscaloosa can only dream of making the appearance in a horrible SEC basketball conference.  The chance to outclass Auburn is just icing.

I'm tempted to create a thread called "Gibberish" with a picture of a watch band in it so that he can still get band from 11W.
