Whoa there DJ.  Wichita, Kansas is actually a really nice place that I call home. 

Looks like it's time for today's installment of Fun Facts About Wichita:

-Did you know that Wichita has more sunny days than Miami or Honolulu?  I don't believe that stat either.
-Are you a fan of Pizza Hut or White Castle?  Both started here in the middle of nowhere, er, Wichita. (So did Freddy's Frozen Custard and Spangles, but those are more regional)
-Wichita is the air capitol of the world!  Responsible for more aviation industry lay-offs than anywhere else!
-I received my Bachelor's from a school called Friends University.  Once called Friends University of Central Kansas.  Think about it.
-It is illegal for a restaurant to serve cherry pie a la mode on Sundays in Wichita.  Which I just learned and will now put to the test this coming Sunday.

Come to think of it, your review of why to root for the Shockers was probably one of the nicest things anybody will say about Wichita for years to come. 

P.S.-  Gregg Marshall is, in fact, a Warlock.  I can attest to this as most definitely being true.  And I'm pretty sure Charles Koch must be not-so-secretly paying him a little lot extra on the side.

Well if you were 9Route that wouldn't be a problem.

Although i bet he'd upvote it nine times and downvote it once.  Just because.

I really don't mean to change the tune of this thread at all, but how is cost of living in Murfreesboro?  We were considering a move to that general area from Kansas.  Would you recommend the area?

Not a single downvote on this entire thread. How peculiar.
Comment 25 Jan 2015

So basically if your name is Jake and you happen to play the tight end position, Ohio State is the place for you!

In all seriousness though, I love that the addition of Hausmann speaks to two narratives:  Ohio State can't recruit Cincinnati (especially the Catholic schools) and Urban can't get any of his highly rated tight ends to commit to Ohio State.

Dontre was in the same class as Zeke, and I believe Missouri tried to use that against us in their recruitment of him.  Pretty sure coaches made it well known that despite both being running backs in high school, they would not play the same role in this offense.

Edit:  Nicely done, Poison Nuts.  I clearly should read on before adding my two cents when a thread has been active this long.

In all fairness, throughout Waller's recruitment it always seemed like he wanted to be a Buckeye. He just never got that elusive offer, if I recall correctly.
Comment 13 Jan 2015

Keyshawn Johnson was there.  And he was repping the Buckeyes big time.

I'd be surprised if his son doesn't end up at Ohio State at this point.

Comment 09 Jan 2015

I've been looking for Doobie and his taxiola since I got here nine years ago..  Unfortunately neither he or the Braidwood Inn seem to be in business anymore.  Or something like that.

Comment 07 Jan 2015

With the tremendous success of each quarterback and the different styles they bring to the table, who of Braxton Miller, JT Barrett, and Cardale Jones do you most look forward to playing with?

Comment 30 Dec 2014

In fact, I don't think — other than Weber — that there's any concern about Buckeye commitments ending up elsewhere at this time.

Amazing that the commitment of Carlton Davis has stuck so soundly.  After what appeared to be a spot saving commitment a few months back, he's now looking more and more like a solid signing day fax to the Buckeyes.
