I'm told bones heal stronger than they were. Soft tissue like ligaments; not so much.
I suffered a couple of bad ankle sprains in college. Doc told me the recovery time for a broken ankle would've been shorter.
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.
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.
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.
Neither did Harambe, but we let that run its course in the Forums.
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.
Congrats to all the captains. With great power comes great responsibility.
Now let's do the damn thing!
And we all just have to grin and Barrett.
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.
Get all your home improvements and yard work done this weekend, football fans. After that, we've got three straight weekends of football before the bye, and then it's football every Saturday from October 1st on. WOO HOO! WOO HOO!
TBH, it's kind of refreshing. The Navy is notorious for its foul mouths. But I knew a couple of fantastic leaders who rarely if ever swore. When they did, it silenced the room, and the staff knew they had really pissed off the old man. Sometimes, less definitely is more.
I know a high school coach in southwestern Ohio who got fired for cussing too much at the players.
Same thing happened in out Dayton-area HS two years ago.
He was inside the Top 25 in the country in 2002. It's saying something.
St. Louis and KC are big cities with a fair amount of talent (I seem to remember a Buckeye RB from that part of the country). And there's only Mizzou in state.
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 just realized there isn't an ACC team represented in that Top 5. Power Five my ass.
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.
I hope the seats come with a TV. There's about a football field between the fans and the football field.
Nice, HGH. Pictures >>>> Words.
OSU is my 'side team'. Navy is my number one - just gotta be that way after four years by the Severn.
