Great school. Make crazy $$$ with a degree from there. Only catch is you usually end up working in some hell-hole of a place.

Comment 28 Oct 2014

The D played well, agreed. But the point was that even with bad o-line play, they got something (however meager) out of it. 189 yards is still 2.5x what tOSU managed through the air. Could only help clear out the box to allow the qb and tv to have some chance to break free.

Here's calling on the real (native American) Seminole Nation to withdraw their support of this colossal bunch of screwups

It's been good for my wife and son as well, who have had some odd symptoms clear up on the GF diet. I've had no noticeable change to my own health on the same diet (suffering along with them).  There are a lot of people this diet can help, it's just not anywhere near as many people that are on the diet. A lot of the benefits of the diet (I think) are that almost all processed foods are out, and that mean a lot fewer unpronounceable ingredients going in your body, and a lot more vegetables, fruits, etc are consumed.

That group of refs should be shipped off to the PAC-12

Comment 27 Oct 2014

Agree. PSU had a decent passing game with abysmal O-line play, almost entirely with short routes.

Comment 27 Oct 2014

I'm a parent of three elementary school aged children. I get frustrated that the school has a "healthy eating" initiative but they undermine it at every opportunity. I just have to accept that at school and other places that my personal standards for healthy eating are probably ignored, and that hopefully all the time I've invested in exposing the kids to healthy foods at a young age will pay off in the future.

Could it be the start of a Division 1+? I agree that a lot of schools won't be able to keep up,and the farcical nature of the NCAA's "amateurism" seems to crumbling.

Comment 22 Oct 2014

I've thought this for a while. While the SEC has some dominant teams, they don't have the national draw that some of the B1G (e.g. tOSU, scUM, PSU) have. Even in SEC country, there's divided loyalties (half of Alabama hates Alabama) That's why the tOSU game is always broadcast on ESPN/ABC even when we're playing a completely overmatched team.

My wife and I abandoned the DC area for northern WI 2 years ago and it's been awesome. I hated the self-entitled attitudes, traffic, pollution, etc of the area. Hope you can punch out and make it to saner pastures.

I coach youth soccer, and I have players that can really see the field. They know how plays develop and have a knack for finding seams in the defense and knowing where players will be. I also have players that just don't see it, and I haven't been able to coach it into them. They seem to get the idea in drills, but in full speed play they can't apply the lessons.

I love hard cider and brew my own every year. It's not necessarily a bitch drink, it's just that the US ones are usually very sweet. They drink cider like crazy in the UK. Strongbow is great if you can find it. Ace's Pear Cider is awesome too. Try a snakebite, a black-and-tan made with cider in place of the Bass/Harp.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

There needs to be drinking game rules established for this one.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

FSU Is reminding me of the good old Bobby Bowden years, finishing in the top 4 in the rankings and stupid player behavior every year.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

Agreed. I much prefer the current situation to the Cooper era. See quote below. I love hearing the lamentations of the alumni.

Comment 18 Sep 2014

RR has won at both WVU and now Arizona, so I wouldn't lump him in with Hoke. (I think Meyer even recommended him for his current job). He didn't succeed at Michigan, but I would blame the school and alumni more than him. It didn't help that his tenure was during a strong tOSU time, and they weren't able to poach many top recruits out of Ohio (read: formula for success in 80s and 90s).

How you destroy the 46? It's called a passing game.

Is Schlichter in white-collar resort prison or federal pound me in the a$$ prison?

I thought that the bacon-cheese dog at 5 Guys couldn't possibly be good... was I ever wrong. Chili could only make it better.
