For any food that is delivered, expect to tip the delivery guy.   As far as I know, only pizza and subs are delivered pretty much everywhere.  I have never worked these types of jobs, but I have always tipped on my up to $50 (at max) orders.  Kick the delivery guy 10%-20%.  He had to carry all of that food from his vehicle to their door.

Of course he should have stayed!  Perhaps selfishly I want him to be a primary receiver for the Buckeyes.

Obviously the guy has talent, and we all love him.  But why declare early, if you're not projected be drafted in the first 3 rounds (he wasn't)?  That doesn't mean he can't play in the NFL.  I'm a big fan, but Jalin still hasn't made the 53 man roster, yet.

You guys are/were saying the same things about Tyvis Powell declaring early.  Both made some notable mistakes for the Buckeyes, and both provided notable highlights.  A stellar senior season would have helped both of them make more money.

I was just listening to Pop Goes the Weasel earlier this week.  It also sparked a memory of mine of being in OSU's Stradley Hall (Straddle me hall) back in 1991 and explaining to a female dormmate why a group of rappers was singing a nursery rhyme.

I recently got my credit scores up to 789/797/802 (TransUnion/Equifax/Experian) after two decades of being around 675ish.

While it's a good financial goal, I can assure you that NOBODY is interested in that information; other than people trying to sell you a loan (car, mortgage refi, credit card).  I wonder if he has a summer job working in a lending industry.

Drinking game! Take a sip every time you hear the following phrase:

"Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe...."

You'll be drunk after two episodes.

Of course we all want the accusations to be true, and for Ole Miss to be punished.  But really even if he did know, what is Huge Freeze supposed to say?  "Oh yeah, we pay 'em good.  Can't have his mamma's phone/gas/lights shut off."

If the accusations ARE true, I'm sure Hugh will have plausible deniability working for him.  How often does he even interact with the Assistant Associate Athletic Director? lol

Great article, I really enjoyed reading it.  Actually brought a few tears out.

The same year that Webb went to Knoxville, a different Rogers Ram – defensive lineman Cody Pargo – signed with Ohio State, extending a period of relatively good luck in Toledo for the Buckeyes’ football program.

T-Town represent! I went to OSU and have resided in Columbus permanently since 1996. I'm a 1989 graduate of Rogers high school, and was Track and Field teammates with Corey Pargo.  He didn't pan out at OSU because he couldn't stay academically eligible.

Nice article.  I never had a close relationship with my mother, so reading this I felt like she would make me very uncomfortable.  But after reading the entire article I can see nothing but love and support.  I particularly liked this:

But before we exited the room, I walked over to Tunsil’s table. I hugged him and said a few words of encouragement. He had enough people judging him.
