I hate the grammar and spelling police!
Agreed. I'll add that It's his timeline and order of preference, not our's.
I'm hearing he'll be in Dallas instead.
Good luck to the young man. Stay humble and don't hold on to grudges. Life is waayyy too short.
I'm still trying to find said article. I could have found it on the old site...
Has the article been taken down?
It could be worse, I suppose.
More classics found here.
up vote for bringing me back in time to my weekly ritual at tOSU -
Turn on tube and laugh our assess off.
Ah, those were the days.....
If it is indeed a gateway drug, which is debatable, it's due more to association than slippery slope -- You want a bag? Cool, you can grab some coke too while your at Donny Dealer's house.
Put mary jane behind the cashier at 7-eleven and it's no longer a "gateway" drug, if it ever was to begin with. All the war on drugs did was make it easier to score 2 birds with the same stone. Hey, at least we saved on gas!!
Scoreboard baby. It's the only stat that counts!
$5 buckets was hard to beat.
Lived in Northern and Central Ohio for 15 years and never made it down to Kings Island. Always spent my amusement park dollars at Cedar Point. Gotta get this on my list.
Woody down 49% to 51%.
can't. stop. playing.
My ballot reads the same STU.
...and make academics optional.
If academics are optional under this scenario then what affiliation to these teams would the academic institution have?
Student athletes want to be defined as an employee? How about the schools then elect to add language in the "offer" that binds both parties into an at-will employment scenario? I can quit, you can fire at any time for any reason. It's how my employment is governed.
Go with the stipend kids. The grass is not always greener.
Solid post BadOwl.
The real issue is quite simple: this isn't about money, at least not for now or the next decade. It's about who controls college athletics, and the people in charge believe they know what's best for athletes better than the athletes do.
I work for a company where the people in charge feel they know best for the employees. How bass-ackwards is that?
Tough choice this morning. Armstrong is rightfully an American (global?) hero. But an argument can be made that without Edison's inventions and patents Armstrong and the NASA'ites behind him wouldn't have even had the chance to fly to the moon let alone step foot on an alien surface. Have to go with #1 seed on this one.
I know, I know. Just pointing out that it's not like Urban is trying to sell a Pinto.
Heuerman was a top 14 TE last year based on receiving yards, despite only playing in 10 games. Niklas from ND? 13th.
Urban's pitch isn't that difficult.
...edit to fix link.
Padrino, I heard back from tOSU Athletic Office re: the email I sent this past weekend. Copied below. Who knows, with more voices perhaps a statue around the "house that Chic built" may actually become reality.
Your letter was sent on to Athletics from Interim President Joseph Alutto's office.
We appreciate your thoughts and passion about Ohio State football and Chic Harley.
Our historic Ohio State football program enters into its 125th year this season.
We have several opportunities and special events and presentations that we have started to propose.
And yes, Chic Harley is one that has been targeted for recognition.
Once we have completed our planning, we will circle back with you to communicate our events for the year.
Thanks again for bringing this to our attention.
Very happy to support this.
