Adventure Express was my first roller coaster! Holds a special place in my heart.  And here's Andrew, throwin' shade..  The Racer was another of my childhood favorites.  My cousin and I rode it 31 times one afternoon just because there was literally never a wait.  I am also one of the ones who got to ride Son of Beast with the loop.  Very cool coaster!

Do you guys remember the King Cobra at KI?  The stand-up coaster?

Every one of the Buckeyes that Eric has listed Cincinnati as a potential landing spot for has been mocked to the Bengals by one or more of the "experts".  He's not far off base in saying that they'd be a good fit for these players.  And I'm not sure why all of the teams you mentioned could use him more within their offenses.  As Eric mentions in the article, the Bengals lost both Jones and Sanu in free agency and are looking to replace a lot of talent at the position with very little proven ability behind AJ Green currently on the roster.  Thomas would be an excellent fit with the Bengals, especially if he somehow slipped to late second round.

Two words for you: Cry Room.  Best invention ever.  I have a nine year old son who was less than pleased when his (now two and a half year old) sister was born and it meant no more movies in the theatre and that sort of thing.  Somebody (an angel, I presume) tipped us off to the Cry Room.  It's a little sound proof room in the back of the theatre where you can sit with your little minion and they can cry or yell or make whatever noise they fancy the entire time and nobody else is even slightly disturbed.  You also have your own volume control, so it's the best of both worlds.  I think it's actually for more of a temporary seating arrangement where you can get up and separate you and your little one from the civilized folk while they are being obnoxious and still see the movie, but we have utilized it as our primary lounging area on at least three occasions.  Only certain theatres have this room, so you will want to check in advance, but they are worth it!

I agree on the first portion of your post that the B1G should not claim players who never played in the conference, but I have no problem with the BTN airing Nebraska games from their days prior to coming to the B1G.  In fact, I'd be disappointed if Nebraska's history weren't celebrated by the conference.  Fans of other teams in the conference may not be very aware of their program's history and I think it's interesting to learn more about our opponents - past and present.  Plus, how would you feel to be a Husker fan and only get to watch/relive the "glories" of the past few seasons on your conference's television network?  lol

Haha nice! You had nine of the thirteen I predicted.  I like it!

IF I somehow got all my predictions correct the class would wind up at 23.  I actually think it's possible that if they get someone like Hansard or Solomon to go with Cage that they make stick with one more DT and not bring in a guy like Jeter.  Also, it may be necessary to stick with only one running back in Sibley and a talent like Sermon might be left out.  You could also make a case that Shaun Wade may not be solid in this class and that is why they continue offering more and more top flight defensive backs.  But it'd be hard to pass up a guy like Holmes just because you have two of the other rated CBs in the class.  It will be an interesting year for recruiting for sure.

I'm taking a way too early guess at the 2017 class and say we get the following:

WR: Trevon Grimes, Jaylen Harris, and Donovan Peoples-Jones (with Harris being the next commit).
RB:  Trey Sermon
TE:  Matt Dotson
OG:  Cody Bowes
DE:  Corey Malone-Hatcher
DT:  Fred Hansard, Donovan Jeter
LB:  Santino Marchiol
DB:  Lamont Wade, Jaylen Kelly-Powell, and Jeffrey Okudah (with JKP committing next).

DB is going to be crazy this year!  Already have Wade, Williamson, Pryor, and White in the mix with the above guys as well as Darnay Holmes, Amir Riep, Ambry Thomas, and others like Richard Lecounte out there..  Wow.
