Whitlock was a teammate of Jeff George's at Warren Central High School in Indianapolis, IN. They won back to back state championships in 1984 & 1985.
He has a house outside of Bloomington and is a prominent donor. Indiana's indoor football practice facility is named after him due to his donation to make the construction possible.
I'm taking my wife and two oldest daughters. We attended the spring game, but this will be the first actual game for my daughters. We're looking forward to a great day.
Definitely check out the Upland Brewing Company if you have the chance. Also, the Trojan Horse on Kirkwood Avenue is good for a bite if you like greek cuisine. Their gyros are great.
Sounds about right!
Billy Joe Shaver is the man!
Yes it is. Thank you, and long live southern rock.
Getting nailed by a clown is about as creepy of a scenario as I can imagine.
"it".......you should definitely do "it". I'd try to get "it" on the itinerary as early and often as possible.
I would be content to be the third string QB at Ohio State. I am not Braxton Miller.
Braxton will fight his ass off, and as a top level competitor, has the confidence to believe he will win the starting job. And it wouldn't surprise me for a second if he did.
If the game is at Indiana, Illinois, Purdue, or Northwestern, I'm in attendance.
Otherwise, at home, with my wife and daughters, all of us wearing Buckeye jerseys. We all cheer, yell, complain, celebrate together. We usually eat chicken wings (mine as hot as I can get) and I drink beer. One of my favorite things in life are those fall Saturdays.
I've heard it said that "if you're not cheating, you're not trying".
I think a lot of people would be surprised to see how many top level teams, programs, organizations, etc find ways to work around the rules to gain a competitive advantage.

They just opened a Sport Clips near my house, so I gave it a shot. The hot towel/massage/shampoo was free with the first cut. The little blonde chick talked me into giving it a try. It was thoroughly refreshing, but I also felt like I had cheated on my wife. I'm fairly certain the girl had been "coached up" on how to gain loyal, repeat customers lol
Born in Ohio but moved out of state at a young age. My mom's side of the family are still in Ohio. My earliest memories of watching college football were Spielman, Byars, and Carter. No matter where my family moved to, my loyalty stayed with the Buckeyes.
Mike Leach. I think it would be awesome to spend one day with him.
I belong to another football related website that uses upvote/downvote to rate posts. A really cool feature is that on that website, you can click on the UV/DV tally and it shows each individual that voted and what their vote was. When they began using that feature, the UV/DV culture improved significantly.
The food is a major factor for me. The first two places I hit when I get into the city are Central BBQ and Gus's. Broadway is great, but for me, Beale beats Broadway simply because I like the blues better than country music. I've enjoyed Nashville each time I've visited. Memphis is just a little more of my flavor.
Just once, I would love to have Jameis Winston hooked up to a polygraph.
They nailed the ranking for West Lafayette. When the Buckeyes are playing somewhere close, me and the wife always go to the game and stay overnight as a mini-vacation. Bloomington is a quaint, enjoyable college town to stay in. Evanston is a trip to Chicago, so there's the amenities of the city. Champaign is just ok. West Lafayette FREAKING BLOWS!!!
I'll take Memphis EVERY SINGLE DAY! Every time I cross the river I can feel Memphis in my soul. Some cities are just like that.
I don't get it. I know, it's not my site, I don't need to get it. He's talking about football though, something we hold sacred. Some of us even make our living off of the sport. Relevant much more than some political stance.
Edit: There is a better time and place for this discussion. My bad.
Why? It isn't remotely political. Obama took took a position regarding the game of football. It clearly wasn't supporting the sport that drives your website. I don't get the problem here.
Edit: After some thought, probably not the place to have this conversation. It becomes too easy to turn political.
Thanks for the replies! I've been trying to find information about the if/when the band is playing, but I haven't had any luck.
