Is it just me, and apologies if this has been mentioned elsewhere, but the new AD is a dead ringer for Jabba the Hutt, right?
I'm old. I had to urbandictionary.com this one...
Hey! Welcome back! Missed you around these parts...
Thanks. Think I've managed to bribe my brother into driving me downtown to the Mission tomorrow. One of the officers of the local alumni club recommended it. Thanks for the feedback. Go Bucks.
The thing is, "speed" isn't a pure function of athleticism; reaction time is a huge component. And reaction time is a function of familiarity and certainty in the scheme. A 4.2 DB can still get burned if he spends an extra second pondering which way to break. So I'm going to keep my rose colored glasses on for now.
I respect your opinion, and it takes backbone to go public with a contrarian viewpoint. But I disagree with you. I have no qualms whatsoever saying that he did deserve to be pounded into the ground by a giant. If it comes to it, the kid needs to hope that a jury agrees with your viewpoint rather than mine.
Really, dude? I'm not going to downvote you, but you sound like a plaintiff's attorney.
Good call; it's generally a miserable profession.
A question for M Man, BED, or any others admitted in the great state of Ohio: wouldn't an employee of Waters' stature generally have an agreement-to-arbitrate clause in his/her employment contract? And if so, how are we skpping so easily ahead to litigation? I, thankfully, know next to nothing about litigation. Thanks
No winners in a bad situation, all around. Everyone I know with ties to TBDBITL has been steadfast in supporting Waters, but on the other hand, I understand the University's need to avoid the appearance of condoning unacceptable behavior, and part of being in a leadership position is accepting that you (unfairly?) may be held accountable for the actions of others. I absolutely understand that Waters' career and reputation have been damaged, but every dollar spent in defending a suit or distributed in a settlement or award is a dollar that could have otherwise been spent bettering tOSU in more productive ways.
I struggled with addiction myself when I was his age. I wish him all the luck and support in the world. Staying at OSU, regardless of his playing status, might be the best choice for him. Beyond maintaining the support net he hopefully has developed there, he hopefully ends up with a degree from one of the best public schools in the country.
And DJ, not trying to pile it on, and certainly not saying I disagree with the substance of your statement, but I love this site and don't want any harm to come to it. A plaintiff willing to sue tOSU for getting hit by a bus likely could be a plaintiff willing to sue anybody for libel or defamation of character, not that I'm licensed to opine on such matters of Ohio law. Might want to tone down calling any party to any pending litigation an idiot, lest a tribunal ultimately disagrees with you regarding his idiocy. Dollars spent by 11W defending a (likely meritless) claim are dollars not spent on reporting and bandwidth.
Point taken. Forgive my rhetorical embellishment.
Right. And it's by a private individual, not government (where the protected class analysis comes into play) or engaging in public commerce (tripping Civil Rights legislation). I wish the KKK would all die in a fire, but there's the legal theory behind why they're allowed to hold marches through my hometown every few years.
"even" her goth...or especially her goth?
B1G! B1G! B1G!
If I go ahead with a preemptive "SPARTY NOOOOOOOOOOOooooooo!," will I hold off fate?
there's the jim bollman we know and love...
that spot was two yards too generous
I hate their POS band even more
I am pretty lazy, but it would be interesting to compare the NCAA and B1G definitions of "PED" or comparable terms. I wouldn't be surprised at all if a more stringent B1G definition picks up routine prescribed medications, legal stimulants (e.g., caffeine), over-the-counter herbal supplements available at GNC, etc., that would pass the NCAA test.
Very cool. My first two thoughts: looks like he throws a pretty sharp deep ball. Second, it'd be a-ok with me if he turns out as well as the last lefty QB at OSU (Joe G. was the last lefty, right?)
Edit: crap. Forgot about Bellisari. I guess that's a good thing?
This very well might have been the best article I have ever read on the interwebs. Ever.
