This was explicitly stated to my wife...no wedding during Buckeye season. We got married right before season started. Wouldn't you know it the little rug rat came 3 weeks early on 11/21/2013 and we'll be celebrating his birthday on Indiana game day, which of course is what my alumni tickets are for. So we are making the best of it and having a Buckeye's themed 1st birthday party which will include watching the game from my living room. The moral of the story...it's not just weddings, it's births, deaths, national holidays, anything should not be planned or attempted from the end of August until the end of January.
Get some flexfits or something and I'd take one!
So for the 20 drivers that completed all 250 laps of the Indy 500 on Sunday, being subjected to upwards of 4 gs twice each lap, and turning the car 800 times which according to tests (done by I belive Purdont engineers) is equal to doing a 40 lbs arm curl each turn while being in an environment that is averaging 108 degrees for 3.5 hours non-stop and loosing up to 10 lbs through sweating all the while going over 200 mph 2 inches above the ground isn't an athlete? But a football player who if only playing on one side of the ball may see 30 minutes of non-continous action or as Urban puts it 3-5 seconds of all out effort once every 40 seconds for an average of 80 plays is a serious athlete? Come on DJ...I thought you were smarter than that.
Great, I just pictured Matt Hayes banging away at his keyboard with his erect jam pony. Why....WHY??!!!
You give him much more credit for length and girth than I would imagine exists in his tightie whities
Seriously? There would be no Wright bros if there was no Edison. No light bulb, no power generation= no airplane. No way you can not vote for Edison!
I'm extremely relieved and now extremely worried. A week ago I would have guaranteed a win against MSU. Now after that defensive crapfest I'm not so sure. Shazier had a non-existent game, the secondary was non-existent, and the d-line played soft the whole game. The defense will need to have the game of their life to beat MSU. If the offense at all sputters next week we will not win the game. I hope that I'm just being a negative nancy, and my fears are unfounded. Either way TTUN tears are still delicious even if it was only a 1 point victory!
You know what it means.
That we get jumped by the masters of all things BCS?
Call me silly, but I think Roby has regressed immensely this year. I imagine he's probably dropped on a lot of draft boards. Not sure if another year would help him if he keeps regressing.
Braxton is no where near NFL ready. I don't think he's even on anyone's draft board.
Shazier is a grown ass man and should definitely leave and make bank as the next graduate of the real "Linebacker U"
Definitely Hyde. He's the only one of that group who I haven't yelled at the TV and said "What the heck are you doing!", plus I think he's handled a bigger adversity than the rest of them. Some might say that's a reason for him not to be the team MVP, but when your a young kid and you have what some might call excessive discipline thrown at you it's a lot easier to just give up instead and believe the narrative instead of buckling down and throwing the world a big double barreled middle finger salute with your actions on the field.
Apparently it is also a famous squirrel that they intend to make a movie of?
Must stop watching......can't stop....
I'm thinking you posted just to use the word sugarbush in a sentence three times. :)
Some of us from the southern part of the state (me) had to google it, which I must admit I was worried to do at work. I had a different vision of the word sugarbush in my mind that what you were speaking of. I won't spoil the fun for others though. Google away!
Definitely Oregon. I've watched all of them play, and I'm most impressed by Oregon. We can match well with Bama, and honestly FSU looked like a trainwreck against a horribly overrated Miami team. Against Oregon we would need to put up at least 70 points, and I don't think we could continuously produce to stop their offense.
Did anyone actually watch the FSU Vs. Miami game? Honestly Michigan looks better than either one of them even with the WR QB they have.
I'm not really worried about where the Bucks fall in the equation. Remember 07 where we were sitting 5th, and everyone and their mother lost in "surprise" upsets and we were back in a NCG we didn't belong in? They all said maybe last year was a fluke and FL was really really good. tOSU is a traditional powerhouse, smashmouth conference..yada yada yada. They travel well, let's play them in the NCG yada yada yada. Derp!
Yeah...that is why someone will leapfrog OSU regardless if they are the best team on the field or not. tOSU ruined it's own perception, not a down B1G. The B1G wasn't down until tOSU sh!t the bed twice in a row on the national stage.
Regardless of what happens I'll still enjoy every game, and especially the sweet deliciousness of Wolverweenie tears!
This is mine from a couple years ago. I bought one of those fake pumpkins to redo it so it will last for all eternity.
How can you assume that weight lifters and people who lift weights are properly trained in dieting? Anyone who has spent any time in a gym will tell you that their are 50 other "diet experts" in the gym at any one time and none of them have the answer to what works for you as an individual. Also, just because you know what to do doesn't mean you have the will power to do it. There are a lot of very personal reasons that people can't loose the extra pounds.
If losing weight was easy, we wouldn't have the majority of the population considered obese! I applaud Holley for putting herself out there to face her demons and work on her issues.
Many young girls who are much like her right now might see her on the show and be inspired to take the steps to change instead of being bullied by people who think they know what is going on with that person; which only increases the cycle they are in until the point that the do something stupid.
Haven't tried it, but it's not terribly expensive if it works. There is also an Arduino version out there for the techies out there.
* edit. I'm seeing things
Fair enough I understand your going on perception, but I could care less about that. I only correlate directly to effect on the football program. We were really ESPN's darling until the 2006 NCG debacle when they had a new superpower to suck dry for ratings and money. Remember "The Game"? Gameday, ESPN did a special on the rivalry etc. They even passed over the Troy Smith illegal car/benefits thing with barely a mention compared to what happened when the tatgate thing went down. Mo C wasn't even a 24 hour news cycle when he got arrested.
Now they are on the SEC as a whole making ratings and money, so they don't mention much about Johnny Football, sCam Newton, etc to protect their investment much like they did with tOSU prior to 2006.
Maybe it's just a change in time where there has to be 24 hours of crappy sensational news, but I don't think it had near the effect that TP and co brought. We didn't have multiple press conferences with the university president and AD, loose our coach, reduced schollies, etc due to Mo C, so still in my opinion TP & Co ranks way above Mo C on the list.
I really have to disagree with you claiming that Mo C did more to hurt the program than anyone. I don't recall the program being hurt at all by anything he did. Until Tressel was canned for being stupid, everyone and their mother thought he ran a clean program and was as near God as any person in Ohio, so Mo C didn't hurt the program perception.
The fact that he went nuts after he left the program really didn't do anything to effect the program did it?
Maybe he hurt it by leaving early instead of staying in beast mode on the field?
I forgive Mo C because he didn't do anything to hurt the program, only himself.
I don't forgive TP because he's still as big of a immature douche as he was when he was playing for tOSU and played a part in our program going down in flames. Once he accepts responsibility for his part then maybe I will think of forgiving him.
Please reveal your sources for knowing what the university found in its investigation that made them disassociate him without due cause! I would love to know the inside details that you seem to have that make things just "allegations".
Maybe you missed the part where our top DB (who wants to play in the NFL, but came back to raise his draft stock to 1st round status) pushed a guy towards a 62 yard touchdown instead of tackling him?
Lack of discipline among the players who aren't new to the system is disconcerting. Having not corrected it in year two is even more worrisome! While I admit that the Cal quarterback is going to put up some disgusting passing numbers this year, they still pantsed us on occasion and that will not do if they even want to think about playing in the NCG.
The offense will eventually have an off game, and so far the defense hasn't done much to show that they can keep the team in the game.
Hells no! Kenny G is more than capable and Braxton at 80% limited by a knee doesn't have the intangibles that make him better than 99% of the rest, so in my opinion Kenny G is the better choice at that point.
The only reason I could see it is if Cal's defense guaranteed couldn't get penetration and his injury forced him to stay in the pocket and make the right reads and choices then it would be a learning experience for him to grow. But we all know that's not going to happen, so the risk just isn't worth it. Braxton at 100% or no Braxton at all. Kenny G's smooth jazz all the way for the win.
You put into words my thoughts better than I ever could. I played the game, but never at the level that these kids play it at. I'll never call him a wussy or anything, but he also won't be on my list of toughest Buckeye players ever.
If you think that a satirical post about a dead president betting on CFB with a jewel encrusted talisman from Gucci Mane is talking politics then we have a much more serious problem.
