I toured the YSU facility with AD Ron Strollo last December.  They had the West Coast Chill in the athletic department lounge area so I tried one...it was rough.  The students working for the caterer at the event couldn't believe I tried one. 

However, where the money may be in that business is the cans - they have designed self-cooling cans that activate when the beverage is opened.  The patent on that technology alone will be worth millions should Mr. Joseph decide to market it.   http://westcoastchill.com/revolutionary-technology

I guess that means you have missed out on some really good music put out by Slash the past couple of years.   Is it his voice or something else?  (I get the disliking Scott Stapp, but never heard anything bad about Myles).

Or are you just upset that he replaced Izzy Cole in Steel Dragon?

No, he is in Tremonti, Mark's other project.  They have released 3 albums and its pretty aggressive stuff.  I like the first album a lot.

No, the alleged former live in girlfriend is the one who is alleging assault early this morning.  Same girl that posted the pictures. 


More details on the allegations in the second report. 

Thompson also accused Elliott of striking her "several times" and "leaving bruises on her arms" over a five-day period from Saturday to Wednesday, according to a second police report. Elliott, however, told police that he never touched Thompson in "a harmful manner," saying she suffered the bruises during a bar fight.

Thompson told police that she lived with Elliott for approximately three months, but the running back stated that he only payed for her rent and co-signed on her vehicle.

Austin Ward just stated on twitter that there is now a second police report issued by Columbus PD today.  It also has conflicting accounts but I am sure more information will be released.

Not good.  A few months ago some other girl snapchatted pics of Zeke sleeping in the background and the accuser was identified in some of the stories as his GF. So there is some history there.


Also of note, its Zeke's birthday.

Simon, the Big Ten defensive player of the year as a senior, was not as good as a freshman Joey Bosa?  Come on.  Bosa of course ended up being superior and was an freshman all-american, but you dismiss the talent on that 2009 team like nothing.  I listed plenty of talent on 2009 that would have started on this year's team, especially on defense. 

And I said the Oline is worth debating, but this team has much better oline coaching.  Cordle, Adams, and Brewster all would have easily challenged the 2 deep or started on this team.

Considering the abuse I have seen some drunk browns' fans give to visiting fan bases, this is not just a Pittsburgh problem.  Both are blue-collar towns that love to drink...and that's where any real issue comes in. 

If you wear an opposing team's jersey into an NFL stadium, expect to get some flack.  And if you are in a rust belt city of a rival, you better have thick skin.

Back to the topic at hand...as suggested above, there are a lot of restaurants around PNC/Heinz Field that will accommodate you.  Mullens, Bettis Grille, Bar Louie, Burgatory, Titled Kilt, McFaddens, are all down there.  I have heard good things about the Beerhead Bar, but have no idea if they have Tvs.  http://beerheadbar.com/beer/our-expertise/

A LOT more?  Seriously?  I am sorry, but Boom Herron would start over Weber on this year's squad.  So would Devier Posey, Jake Ballard, and maybe even Dane S (who would be a nice slot guy).  I won't go into the offensive line, but with competent line coaching, the 2009 team had plenty of talent.  On defense, Cam Heyward, Thaddeus Gibson, Checkwa, Hines, Coleman, Homan and Rolle would all have be starters or in 2 deep.  Doug Worthington would certainly compete for time in the middle with the unproven guys right now.  John Simon, Nate Ebner, and Jonathon Newsome were freshmen on that team. 

Until the young guys prove it on the field, I think its premature to make a statement that there is a lot more talent on this year's team when 2009 was full of guys who spent time on the fields on sunday.  Maybe 2009 wasn't as deep, but it lead to the 2010 team that was extremely close to playing for a national title.  There was plenty of talent on that roster.
