I think you miss the point. What are we supposed to do?  Say we're outraged and this is inappropriate?  Of course we are and it is. I think that goes without saying.  But let's not kid ourselves with the feigned shock. I spent six years in the Navy and have seen much, much worse.   There's always that knowledge that if the person pushing the envelope of acceptable behavior gets caught or a person in a position of authority knowingly ignores it and gets caught, they are going to burn.

No WAY Miller "only" runs a 4.5.  If he doesn't run in the 4.4s, someone else on this site will eat their shoe.

Comment 12 Jul 2014

What exactly do you mean by "academics"?  It really intrigues me when I see this, whether it's from a Notre Dame fan, Sparty, or Michigan.  Are you saying that Michigan St is significantly superior to tOSU?  If so, you make me laugh.  People who say things like that, unless you are talking about Ivy League schools where the top companies come on campus to recruit or very specific programs, really have no clue how the real world works.  There is absolutely no evidence to support that going to one school or the other will make any difference in your career.  As someone that has interviewed and hired many, many people, I pay VERY little attention to the school, unless of course a Harvard or Brown sticks out.  It is all based on the individual and their experience.

Really?  We got our asses kicked because two players chose other schools in July prior to their senior year?  Hyperbole much?

Comment 11 Jul 2014

This "people not being able to determine sarcasm unless it's pointed out to them" crap is getting old...

Comment 10 Jul 2014

Agreed.  I have an 80+ year old father and a young son that just started pop warner that are die hard Buckeyes.  We live in Florida so when you combine airfare, hotel, and now the actual ticket cost, I might have to take out a 2nd mortgage.  It's a shame that the experience isn't more available to those that truly appreciate it (I.E. us true Buckeye fans).  I can't help but wonder how many are corporately purchased and given to people who really don't care whether they go or not...

Comment 10 Jul 2014

Trying to get 4 tickets to the Mi-shit-gan game to take my father, son, nephew, and myself to our first ever game.  Not too optimistic, but hopeful.  If anyone is able and wants to sell, please let me know.  Want to give the old man a treat to enjoy with his grandson before he visits the Shoe in the sky (yes, I AM playing on your emotions.  If I can't with a fellow Buckeye, who can I?).  Thanks for the consideration!

Actuallly you are wrong. They have a trade lined up for Brendan Haywood. I have no idea why no one is talking about it. Google it. As part of his being amnestied, the Cavs get $10M of cap space if they trade him before next August. It lets them take back up to $15M!  That's huge!

Boxing is absolutely DEAD!  Talk about a joke.  Just saw a commercial for pay per view for two guys, neither hold a belt.  Never heard of them and they want $50.  Good luck with that.  Once the older, loyal boxing fans are gone, it will be completely irrelevant.

Comment 09 Jul 2014

Come on.  The only reason Royce won was because no one knew jiu jitsu.  Would you like to play football against someone that's never played the sport?  Once bigger guys learned, he knew it was time to get out of Dodge.  I get what you say about the other disciplines, and to a degree the UFC has gotten stale (fighters learning takedown defense to keep it standing), but there is a LOT of skill in there and there ARE a lot of disciplines being used, whether you see it or not.  You have the world's best grapplers, karate fighter, Muay Thai fighters, Judo, etc.  Learn a bit more about the sport and you will appreciate how incredibly talented the fighters are.

Comment 09 Jul 2014

I REALLY hope that was a joke.  Lesner couldn't beat the bottom of the barrel in the UFC.  He would get absolutely destroyed by anyone in the top 10.  He knew it.  That's why he quit.  Over-roid put a beating on him and he, himself, has taken a beating from everyone else.  Lesner was a total farce.

Comment 09 Jul 2014

That is about the most ignorant statement I've ever read.  MMA (I've trained for a number of years) is literally a physical chess match.  These ARE the best athletes in the world.  Don't believe me?  Try grappling for two minutes.  They are not "beating each other lifeless". Fights are stopped as soon as someone can't defend themselves.  It is MUCH safer than allowing two boxers to punch each other for 12 rounds.  Go talk to an MMA fighter and then talk to a boxer.  Night and day.

EDIT: Sorry, I don't mean ignorant to be a jerk.  I literally mean uniformed.  Not that you are uneducated, but that you just aren't exposed to the reality of the sport.  I apologize if this comes across as a dick.  That is not my intent.

Comment 09 Jul 2014

Lesner didn't "rise through the ranks".  He was a known commodity to the casual fan so a quick way to make a lot of money.  Not only did he SUCK at fighting, he was a total pussy that covered up as soon as he was hit.  Talk about a paper tiger.

Comment 07 Jul 2014

I attended two years of grad school in Gainesville (sorry Buckeyes) and still live here.  I can tell you it IS in the middle of nowhere and VERY lame.  There are literally only a handful of places to hangout.

Comment 04 Jul 2014

Wow!  I really like the highlight film. This guy is going to be incredible. Physically he's exactly what you want in a big. He's not lanky or uncoordinated. He's just built like a man but happens to be tall. Awesome get by Matta!

Comment 03 Jul 2014

The only part I had a problem with was the guy saying they beat us "handily".  Really?  That wasn't the game I was watching.  But, when most of your wins are by 1pt, I guess maybe that does qualify for handily.  Whatever.  Hope we SMASH them this year.  I expect Urban to have an "angry" team.

Comment 01 Jul 2014

Fellow Buckeyes, I'm going to do my best to get four tickets to the game. My hope is to take three generations of Buckeye fans to our first ever game: me, my 80 yr old father, my nephew, and my son. If I am unable, I would be interested in anyone that is able and interested in selling. 

Not saying my pops is going to the Big Shoe in the sky, but I don't know how many opportunities I might get. If need be I will buy online but ultimately want to do whatever I can to make it happen. 

thank you to anyone for consideration.
