Happy to see coach Snyder come back for another year.  My old man was a K State alumni, so I have a soft spot in my heart for these guys.

Agree with you on Venables...I think K State's best option for possible replacements for coach Snyder (whenever he decides to hang up the headset) is a former K Stater - or someone with ties to Snyder.  The school caught lightning in a bottle with Snyder, as being someone who was willing to make a career of coaching in Manhattan, KS.  I don't know if they'll ever be able to replicate that again...the school/program might become a stepping stone for coaches wanting to move up, if not.

As he and three friends pushed through the crowd, a Buckeyes fan in his mid-30s pursued them with a picture to sign. When Elliott refused, the fan hopped on the hood and slipped the photo through the driver's window.

This crap annoys me to no end.

1. Autograph seeking is something for kids to do IMO.  A mid-30s fan following a college kid to get his autograph?  Time to grow up and put on your big boy pants.

2. I'm glad Elliott refused.  See number 1 above.

I used to live by Wrigley Field and would see grown men stalk the opposing players entrance to the park on game days and try to catch them for autographs as the players were walking from their cab/car and into the ball park.  I would think to myself, "This is what you, random 50 year old man, does with your time?"...and shake my head in disgust...as I walked to the 7Eleven to get a gatorade to nurse my hangover...

Ah, I miss my early 20s...

Haha, my neighbors and I actually do that (minus waiting in line for the can)...as I have a TV in the garage (with in-wall ceiling speakers,etc.) and a fridge out there!

Total agreement.

After I invested in the 70 incher for the basement (and a kegerator), it's hard to entice me out.  Maybe once in a awhile because I really enjoy tailgating, but 9 times out of 10 I'd prefer sitting on my couch watching the game.

Also, of note, this contract does not include any replacement of infrastructure, so any time a lot or garage needs to be repaired or replaced... that's still on OSU.

My two biggest memorable moments regarding Ventura are the Nolan Ryan headlock, and 'the ankle injury'...[shudders]

A sure fire way to spot a Cubs fan (whenever their son's name is spelled 'Ryne' instead of Ryan...)

Comment 21 Oct 2015

As a life long Cubs fan, I will interject that only ignorant Cub fans blame Bartman for anything.

I feel for that guy man...

Comment 09 Oct 2015

I was going to say something very similar to this.  Ohio is unique with its fanaticism of football.  I'd put it on par with Texas, and certain areas of western PA, California, Florida etc.  It's definitely not the same in Wisconsin.  They enjoy their football, but not on the same level - as a  whole - as Ohio.

Also, I think there are cultural differences between the two schools (Wisconsin vs. Ohio State) that contribute to their differing approaches, as well.

According to the Sagarin Ratings, Michigan's strength of schedule to this point is ranked No. 31.

I'd be curious to know what their SoS is without including Utah...
