I swear during my time at OSU (89-92) most professors tried to out do each other like this.  It was like a sick game of who could give the students the most work, and the most tests.  I once had a test that consisted of questions drawn only on the footnotes and margin text.

A few of my Gen X takes (born in 1971):

  • Strange that I didn't have any trouble remembering phone numbers back in the day.  Of course, I called fewer people then.
  • Dial-up really sucked.  Of course I always bought the newest modem technology.  300baud!!!, 14.4kbps, 28.8kbps, 53kbps, 128kpbs ISDN (two 53 lines bonded digitally).
  • We always went to the fridge or bathroom during commercial breaks.
  • Yellowpages and Map Books were in my car and home!
  • Library card catalogs - spent a ton of time using them.
  • The music industry got over on us for years.  Buying a whole album crappy album for that one song. Sometimes you got lucky and a cool B-side track was good, too.

No thanks to Amir.  Traveling when he just needs to hand off the ball.  Weak offense around the rim.  Routinely rotating away from the defensive basket to allow their guards to score on layout.  Poor rebounding efforts.  Just sad.

Love the Spencer pass, but if the TDs were reversed (Spencer pass as the last score) all Alabama fans would say is how the Luckeyes stole the game on a trick play.  As it played out, it just makes OSU look that much better (faster, stronger).

I had an English class with him, in 1989.  Robert was a serious student.  Given all the different issues with academics related to the football team during the Cooper years, I tend to believe Robert over any other sides' stories.  Don't forget all of the other crap that happened on those teams (lawsuits, fights, thefts, _ichigan record).

If you do some research, you will find many of the coaches associated with the program are no longer in the profession.

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.

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.
