Clear Fork grad here as well, crazy they made it with that record! Go Colts!
I was skinny when I was younger and when I was in the Army but college, bar tending, and Taco Bell turned me into a legit fat a** lol I just got tired of it and crossfit has been the only workout routine I've stuck with , again 2 years...yes there are the stereotype drink the crossfit kook aid cross fitters but most of us are semi normal guys who just found something we can stick with. Again it's all about the box you join.
In two years I've seen two legit injuries....pretty sure I'd see the same thing for anyone who regularly lifts competitively (both guys were serious athletes , one hurt his shoulder the other his knee). Never seen a regular joe like me get hurt, yes I'm always sore but it's the price I pay for being in great shape and training 5 days a week.
I started almost two years ago now and I still love it. Lost 100 pds, 10" off my waist, and I'm stronger than I ever was even when I was in the Army. Most people especially traditional gym people give it a bad wrap but it's all about the gym (box in my world) that you go to. The community is great and I get to work out with my friends everyday. I just knew I was older, no kids, not married and I still want to be able to enjoy my kids when I have them (plus I have a 26 year old blonde girlfriend that I plan on popping the question to soon , that I have to keep up with).
I guess I'd ask if anyone knows of any good supplements or meal replacement shakes? I'm in good shape but feel like I need to cut more..
This is exactly what I was afraid of and why I created a forum topic on whether Urban should address this with more than just a one sentence one liner. Basically he allowed this no name coach to "frame the conversation" around a broad topic that quiet frankly has the SCum fan base up in arms and almost 2/3's of the OSU fan base. He should have gotten out in front of this and spoke to it, now this idiot is creating public opinion. DEFINITELY not trying to tell Urban how to do his job, because he makes 1000 times what I do, but...this just seems like this would be Public Relations 101 on his part...maybe I'm wrong and have ZERO idea what I'm talking about so please take my opinion with a grain of salt ha ha
Hmm, given what Cass Tech's coach is saying, does the question posed now take on a different spin?
I agree with this 1000%...if Weber wants him to address it publicly then sure and if not, move along because at that point it's clearly a non-issue. If the person involved is over it, then I suppose we all should be as well...
Definitely not asking if Meyer "owes" an explanation to anyone. The reason I asked "if he should address it at all"...I agree with what a lot of people are saying in the thread, I can see pros and cons for addressing it vs not addressing it. Like I said, in response to another post is I just hate seeing the conjecture out there without knowing all the facts one can't simply state a definitive opinion on the situation. I feel like everyone (including myself) is forming our opinions on emotion (how much we love our Buckeyes and want to see them do the "right" thing), it would be nice to know some of the facts before simply saying "I'm angry" or "I'm okay with it, it's a business". When moral questions are posed, I think we would all want the "facts" of the situation before weighing our personal morals against the situation Sorry to ramble, but hope it makes sense.
Yep, answers my question...I just hate all the conjecture out there
As a vet, on election day, it makes the years of my life I spent in the Army worth it....I hope everyone realizes how grateful we should be that we get to select the leaders of this great nation, there are MANY people across this world that would give anything to have this right that so many of us take for granted....
Have to admit, at least PSU fans and bloggers confirmed everything I've always thought about them.....most dillusional fan base in college sports. They'll never get it, it's kind of sad really.
Alex, you're killing us man, but I love your "teasers". Makes me want to keep checking 11W every day to see who the "flip" is or if it happens. My question is, IF the flip doesn't happen, will you still tell us who you were talking about?
I honestly wish twitter wouldn't allow you to contact people directly. It's like you are friends with the whole world and you have no choice who can contact you, make statements about you, or who can view your page. I liked this story, by man....did you have to do the multi color creepy photo on the front page of thee premier tOSU recruiting site of the creeper???
Done with recruiting...hows that for freaking out, following kids and what they'll do, what college will they go to, will they stay committed or de-commit, blah more trouble than it's worth, after two years of following recruiting I'M DONE!
I love this kid already.....the next few years for Buckeye Nation are going to be a amazing! Our defense is just going to be crazzzyyy!
If they had interviewed ANYONE else but the "son of a Spielman" I may agree with you, but this kid is more than likely going to be at tOSU and will be another great name to add to a established group (by the time this kid is on campus) of great players. Call it a hunch, but the kids of great players usually end up great (if you exclude MJ's kids in b-ball of course).
@Jason, I completely agree, even though I kept it "real" at the bottom of this post it's nice to see this site gaining in popularity. I tell all my friends about it and even here at the large bank I work at downtown with a large number of branches here in the Greater Columbus area (take your own guesses) we follow 11W regularly (as I sit at my desk posting this). I think a lot of this has to do to with the large amount of national popularity that tOSU has and I think bringing in Urban as our coach has shot us to even greater heights nationally.
Combine one of the most storied programs in college football history with one of the greatest coaches of our era (not that JT wasn't great, but let's be honest, Urban is a "rockstar") and you get the reason everyone want's to know what's going on in Columbus.
^^^^ AGREED! I hate scUM more than I ever have. I rooted for them to beat Florida back in '07 (I think that's the year) but there is NO way I will root for them to beat Alabama (and I HATE Nick Saban but I hate scUM more now). It's not that they beat us last year, I mean seriously, what's one year in the last 7 or whatever it is or the "rivalry" being renewed (again, 1 win). It's more the whole recruits running their yaps (while ours haven't said a word), the whole "Ohio" thing (no this is the team that beat you in the first round), and then Detard doing the whole "eating" thing last year (dumb). I'm glad we remain civil, because lets be honest we are just better than scUM, but don't think for one sec we don't despise you maybe MORE than we ever have. However, this is a place for civil debate, so we try to keep it that way, just wanted to keep it real for a moment.
Is it just me, or are new members joining more and more now? And as much as I despise scUM, there's actually more fans of opposing teams joining the site. Even though I'd never join Mgoblog or any other teams site, just because typically you can't have a civil discussion with anyone there, it's nice to know that at least for NOW, opposing teams fan can join this site and only occassionally will we jump down their throats, but for the most part we remain civil.
Obviously we will ALL disagree with you, but it would be good for the rivalry IF for some reason it was a back and forth who won from year to year. If we get beat in Columbus this coming year since it will technically be our "bowl game", I can't even imagine what this website will look like. Although PLEASE don't think I actually see that happening, but....IF it did....well....time will tell.
I'm not going to lie, and I may catch some flack for this comment, but I was actually rooting for scUM in this game. As much as I HATED to do it, anytime a B1G team plays ANYONE else, especially Florida at the time, I usually root for them. NOW this may change this year, because honestly, after all the "crap" the so called "recruits" are talking and the whole "Ohio" thing, I actually HATE scUM more than I did when this game happened, so I hope Alabama wipes the floor with them.
I second this, every scUM fan was like "yah you beat us, but RichRod was our coach", now they they think they are "high and mighty" again (with a coach who has never really won anything, 58–52 career record) it'll be a lot more fun beating them.
This was hilirious...I needed it to make it through the rest of my work day! Thanks 11W! Although I would have made a comedic reference to the Denard comment when he referenced "eating" (yes sadly I read the actual transcript of the press conference)
