Nike also has the Ohio State Championship Headwear Box Set for $75 when you use coupon code ZOOM25 when checking out


They tried selling this for $350 (!!!), but at $75, $25/hat isn't a terrible deal.

Hit up a bunch of bars (Big Al's, Top of the Stairs, Sharkey's, and a couple others I don't remember), ended up at this tailgate. Every VT fan was incredibly nice, there wasn't even playful smack talk (on either end). And while the lack of animosity was a little atypical, it made me appreciate their downtown/tailgating environment and stadium experience much more so than had they been assholes.

The Nike page now has a countdown for 8 days, 18 hours (Friday the 21st)?

I am surprised they had the players in the Atrium rooms. The Anatole has two room locations. The atrium rooms are near the front of the hotel, surrounding the food and bar options. The tower rooms are located at the back of the hotel, near the conference rooms, and are configured as normal hotel floors. If they were concerned about noise, they should have put them in the tower rooms.

It is/was probably a bad Google Adsense ad that contained some sort of redirect. Looks like it happened on multiple sites:

You should be fine, Google is usually pretty quick about removing these kinds of intrusions.

Have you guys possibly thought of having all content fall in the main column but highlighting the top stories in the marquee?

It is kind of a weird user experience seeing stories change positions depending on browsing session.

Comment 03 Mar 2014

I'm confused about the story flows and where the newest content on 11W is first displayed.

Right now the three marquee stories are "Bucks Fall in Bloomington" (Mar 2 @ 6pm), "Time to Flush the Rush?" (Mar 2 @ 8:15am) and "Can Buckeyes Beam Up Kirk?" (Mar 2 @ 5am).

These all seemingly fall in line in chronological order, but the first story in the main column is "Net-Cutting Lessons Sold Separately" (Mar 2 @ 6am).

I'm also fairly confident that earlier today, the Christian Kirk story was not one of the three marquee stories, but rather, the first story in the main column.

Do new stories begin in the marquee, then funnel down to the main column? Or are the marquee stories the three "biggest" articles currently relevant? I'm just trying to figure out how I'm supposed to be navigating the site.

San Diego is good, but Irvine, Santa Barbara and Davis are all very much run-of-the-mill.

Santa Cruz, Riverside and Merced are all sub-par. When I graduated from HS (2005), Riverside was guaranteeing admission to anyone with decent grades/test scores and Merced was taking anyone with a degree.
