Have ever found yourself in bed on a sleepless night, wondering to yourself, 'How does he do it? How does Johnny maintain his position at the top of the blogging world with such style and panache? What can I do to be just like him?'

Of course you have, and you'll be happy to know it's a simple three step process.

Step one: live in Ohio your entire life, save for one insane year in the far east, and obtain both a Bachelor's and a Master's degree from the finest university in the world.

Step two: become a mediocre writer. And I mean REALLY mediocre.

Step three: harass and annoy the creators of a semi-popular OSU blog until they give you a writing position out of pity. Coast forever.

Success.

the Apple family lives in new jersey. round trip, that's a 2600 mile ride that would take 19 hours of nonstop driving each way. gas alone would run them 400-600 dollars, and that's to say nothing of hotel rooms, food, and any other travel expenses they'd incur. for families that have to actually work for a living, they often can't afford to take what would be 3-5 days off their jobs for one game (nevermind two if ohio state actually wins)

flying is the easiest and most sensible option for most people, and given that the money is absolutely present to help families out this way, it makes zero sense why there isn't a way to make it happen.

i guess other than spite towards people for not being independently wealthy.

just a warning, there will be very little tolerance in this thread for both speculation and "women be crazy" shit from here on out. this is obviously a very sensitive situation, and as a fanbase we need to be aware of that and not act like idiots. talk about it all you want, but understand that there are two sides to every story, and right now we have no definitive information either way.

i think it has it's place. not after every down like they had apparently decided on yesterday, but it can be fun during long commercial breaks or whatever. the issue for me is that the songs they pick are the most generic top 40 crap ever. it's frankly lame as hell, and like a scooby doo villain being unmasked, exposes us as the lame whitebread midwesterners that we are

so, one of the hardest things about being a teacher is that it turns out yelling for 10 hours a day isnt super great for your voice when youre trying to record a podcast once you get back home
