One of the best things I picked up in the military came while working with the Brits.  When Americans finished an exercise or operation, we would write Lessons Learned.  The Brits on the other hand called them Lessons Identified, because you can't prove you've learned anything from them until you're put in a similar situation and you don't repeat the same mistakes.

Here's to identifying the lessons of '69, learning from them, and not repeating the same mistakes in 2015.  Go Bucks!

I've never heard that story, but I wouldn't be surprised.  I just remember it crushing my dreams of Griffin winning the Heisman and the Buckeyes being voted #1 in the same season.

Don't know about Bourbon, but you can put Everclear in them...allegedly.

1975 Rose Bowl versus #11 UCLA always makes me sick to my stomach.  So does 1974 vs. Sparty.  Both seasons the Buckeyes had legitimate shots at NCs, and got derailed.  The 3 point loss at Michigan State (4-3-1) was one of the most depressing losses I can remember.

Montana's stadium must be quite the environment if it exceeds Kansas State University.  I think the Bison are up to the challenge.

The first Saturday AM Skully of the football season - sweet serenity.  Thanks, DJ!

Speaking of Fargo, the upper Midwest and flyover states are another hotbed for Jell-o salads, as well as the ubiquitous 'hot dish' and tater tot casserole.  Don't know where you dug up that WMD, but it's a gem.  My grandmother always had some form of gelatin in her fridge in Nebraska, and the good folks of her small town made plenty for her funeral dinner in the basement of the United Methodist Church when she passed away at 95.  Long live Jell-o, and let the jiggly gifs commence!

I must be doing it wrong.

Just so long as Mrs. 3M isn't the one telling you that.

Well played - timely thread convergence.  Can I hear a, "I don't care how hurt you are, get back on the field."

My bad. Try "tasteless OSU t shirt."  It should be the first or second hit.

According to what I hear on the radio, the university said they could wait until the investigation was complete in a couple of months, but based on what they had read already the result would be the same. Better to do it now than in the middle of the season.

Google ' Ohio State t shirts' and look for a red one with lots of text on it. Something about PSU.

No worries at all. We all need know our boundaries. First time offense as far as I know, so I'm guessing my sentence will be light.

I still wear this one a lot from Coach Meyer's first season.

I've always liked this long-sleeved one too.


EDIT: Sorry, Mods if the third one was over the line.  I'll accept my punishment.  Gotta admit, it's pretty funny.

IH8UOFM - is that actually your license plate?  If so, bravo.
