Never make your kids give up something for you. It should be the other way around. 

That being said, a gentle nudge toward a spring sport is highly recommended. Both our kids play lacrosse, and our season (including travel) runs from Feb through Jul. We never have a conflict with CFB. 

Good luck!

Because he was just indicted. The original news of his arrest was out awhile ago. The legal system isn't always 'speedy.'

It's not an unreasonable post, BP5. I just moved it to a different Forum. No harm done.

If it was Jim Harbaugh's BIL, yours would probably be the fifth thread started about it.

I agree with you in principle, but trying to avoid being heavy handed with the MOD stuff. I've been accused of closing a thread just because it was unflattering to OSU  

I moved this to Anything Else, as it's completely unrelated to sports. That means it's also off the Main Page. Figured that was fair middle ground. 

Peace

Spent today at an offsite with 8 Air Force colleagues. We ended the day at a 'Breakout' game facility for team building. Locked in a room for an hour, and you have to solve a series of clues/puzzles to unlock various things to get more clues, until you can find the code to unlock the door and get out of the room. They have various scenarios like a hijacked airplane, or kidnapped and held hostage. 

Our scenario was trapped on a deserted island with a volcano that is about to erupt. Had to unlock a boat, and get off the island. We died.

What an awful situation for all parties involved. Hopefully justice is served, and everyone can put their lives back together. There are no winners, only losers, in something like this.

The Buckeye offense could not do much either, as senior Kurt Herbstreit started the game and then split time with freshman Hoying at quarterback.

I really miss ole Kurt. He was a helluva quarterback. Wonder what he's doing these days.

Hey, I'm taking a serious risk flying a Navy flag at an OSU tailgate - our colors or blue and gold. All it takes is one blurry-eyed drunk frat boy in plain front shorts to see those colors, and BOOM.

Thanks, Knar.  I'm never sure what to say to people who thank us.  I chose this life, it's pretty much all I've ever know, and I've mostly loved doing it.  Going to the Naval Academy was probably the single best thing that happened to me in terms of my own personal development; so paying back the country that gave me that education and training never seemed like a sacrifice to me.

OSU was my first football love, and Navy was terrible when I went to school there. It's a lot more fun to cheer for Navy these days.

I don't disagree with that sentiment. Although, I think a lot of people unfairly discredit the Irish for 2012 after the way they lost to 'Bama.  In reality, I don't think there were any teams that year who could've done much better.  Even the 12-0 Buckeyes would've had a rough go against that 'Bama team if we're being honest with ourselves.

OSU is my 'side team'.  Navy is my number one - just gotta be that way after four years by the Severn.
