What if, hypothetically only, a recruit was indeed a pretty big step down from another recruit? Knowing that recruits and their families read these boards, do you think it would be wise or good manners for Birm to post something like that in public? I don't.

Great comment. Also, if you sit at a desk, your setup can be super important.
Gladiator - decent movie, eye candy, but FAR from great or oscar-worthy
Goonies - all people my age seem to love it, I didn't see it until my 30s, guess I was too old when I finally saw it
Raging Bull - good but not top 20 all-time good
Chinatown - love Nicholson usually, but this was meh for me
Agree with Blade Runner - very interesting story, movie doesn't do it for me
Toy Story 2 - good but not great. 1 was great.
There Will Be Blood - fantastic performance from DD Lewis, but overall movie notsomuch
Children of Men - cool idea, but...
District 9 - see above
Ratatouille - fun but not as good as I expected
Pan's Labyrinth - very disappointed
Kill Bill 1&2 - good and have their great moments, but far from Reservoir Dogs or Pulp Fiction level for me
Avatar plot was punch-you-in-the-face obvious and painful, but to see it on a big screen in 3D was truly magical.
Strongly disagree about trying to avoid mortgage debt. With a mortgage, someone is giving you the opportunity to invest THEIR money, for a small fraction of your own (say 1/5 for a 20% down payment, or even much less if you use the smaller first-time home buyer program). Let's say your 30-year mortgage is at 4% APR. Well, you can likely count on more like 8% return from an S&P 500 index fund over the same period, so if you choose to pre-pay your mortgage, you're GIVING UP 4% compounded interest each year for 30 years on that amount. Every dollar you give up to prepay that mortgage is a dollar that could be invested in your retirement account. As long as you actually do that with the money :)
Just as you'd be silly not to maximize your company's 401k match, if you're a disciplined saver, in my opinion you'd be silly to pre-pay your mortgage.
my future wife that girl was 18+ at the time.
Great GIF, which play was this?
Is it not true that, barring transfer etc, we still have both Warren Ball and Brionte Dunn for two more years, right? Either of those dudes could put up a 1500 yard season on this team in 2016, if featured.
I'm an Ohioan and OSU grad who's been living in Boston for 15 years. Agreed!
However, our offensive line, as well as they played at the end of this season, was significantly better LAST year. Braxton is no doubt a fantastic option behind center, and can create big plays with his feet where there are none like very few in the game. That being said, in my opinion:
-JT has much better reading of the passing game,
-JT has much better instincts at evading the rush (many, many more times I saw Braxton jump around the wrong direction under pressure vs JT), Braxton also
-JT has MUCH better touch in short and intermediate routes
-and perhaps most importantly, JT is light years better at making the correct decision on the read option than Braxton is.
Of course, it doesn't matter what I think, but I'm confident Urban sees all this as well, and will make the same decision as I would. JT, if healthy, is the starter next year. Cardale, in two seasons, could be even better because it seems he has many of these qualities, plus that frame and cannon. Unfortunately, that will be in the NFL.
Braxton has just not shown me that he can be an elite passing quarterback or decision-maker, much as I like him, great as he is.
Exactly. If you're going to spend time worrying about a young man, why not become a Big Brother and worry about someone who really needs your concern?
Beautiful, and beautifully written. Thank you.
I love the OP's excitement, but UCLA under John Wooden won 10 titles in his last 12 years there. Given the depth of the talent pool in the SouF, I wouldn't think that's even reasonable to HOPE FOR here. That being said, I wouldn't trade our situation for anyone else's. Great time to be a Buckeye!
Though he does a lot of run support, Tyvis is a safety :)
Amen, and love you too!
IMO this is so much better than landing another 5-star. How many 5-stars make all-Big Ten (or more?) as true freshman interior DL?
Oh well, if they don't land Beckner and it seems like we'll be too thin in 2016, can always grab an elite JUCO or graduated junior next year who's ready to hit the rotation right away.
+1 for being honest
So you're benching EzE? :P
Wow, the crowd noise in that second video...CHILLS!
