Both orders were placed on 2/4.  The red one went to shipping on 2/6, the white one on 2/10.  The red is still sitting there ("Despatch from Sorting Center"), yet the white one arrived 2/23.

Am I the only one shocked by Devin Smith's vertical numbers?  For a high school State Champion and Big Ten high jumper, I thought he might be near the top of all recorded heights.  As I former high jumper myself, I know there is a lot of technique involved. But to be able to jump 7+ feet, you have to have hops.

I just got one of the two I ordered.  I ordered a red, Cardale Jones jersey and a custom white one, both on the same day.  The red one hit the shipping dock on 2/6, and the white hit on 2/8.  Yet the white one showed up last night.

The sleeves are a little bit longer than the red ones, but only 1-1.5 inches.  I have included a couple of pix with a SLK/Champion brand of the 47 HAWK I bought in a Walmart (with silk screen letters and numbers), years ago.  I also have a pic with the 2008/09 Nike Rivalry jersey for comparison.  All Nike branded ones (even the white custom from Aliexpress) have fabric, sew-on letters and numbers.

Mike Conley and Marc Gasol have a tight little dance routine, there!

19 years in Information Technology. 

Sometimes I hate computers, but it sure beats working outside when you look at the harsh weather we've been having.

Comment 23 Feb 2015

It looked like we ran the Counter Trey (with fake Jet Sweep) about 8 times in the second half.  I think Oregon stopped it once.  It was amazing that we never actually ran the Jet Sweep.  Dontre and Jalin faked it so much, I thought they would each get 1-2 chances to bust one. 

I think Corey Smith ran something like a Jet Sweep, but he ran back next to Cardale before the snap.

The things we do for love, man!  lol

My wife's family is almost all U of Cincinnati alums.  We've been married 21 years, and I never heard any smack talk on the gridiron until about 5 years ago. Of course they couldn't talk smack this year after week 4, but they now have to recognize this is THE Buckeye State (not a bUCkeye state).

I was going to start a new topic, but found this existing one.  Excellent statistics site!

I have been trying to get my 9 year old son to love football, or at least OSU Football for 5 years now (wife and I are alumni).  Kid just doesn't understand why he should.  Then he goes to school after the NCG victory and almost every kid is wearing the gear.  Suddenly he wants more OSU shirts. lol

Mine too, since 2/6.  I have ordered stuff from the internet before, which shipped from China.  Always seems to take north of 3 weeks.  Things just seem to sit in warehouses waiting to ship.  Must be for freaking huge warehouses, or really busy shipping docks.

I have grown to hate the Easton location.  3 straight times I have spent 10+ minutes in line behind 2-3 people.  They always have:

  • 1 person helping customers behind the counter
  • 1 person on the phone ordering or calling other stores behind the counter
  • 1 person/manager folding or unboxing behind the counter
  • 1 greeter
  • 3-4 people standing around the store asking, "can I help you find something?"

2 of the 3 visits I got up to the counter to find that the item I picked up wasn't actually on sale, or had a different price than the other items on the rack.  The first time I paid the extra $10, but the second time I told them just to keep the item.
