I went through AF basic training in 1986. Not once did I hear  a TI use profanity at a trainee. Those SOBs made you feel an inch tall without using profanity. I think they took pride in seeing how creative they could be in dressing down trainees. By the time they started building us back up, they had earned respect from all of us, not just fear. It was important from the AF perspective that they teach good leadership, not just intimidation. If this recording was an isolated incident, I would have very little problem with it. The fact that someone put effort into recording it tells me that he knew what was coming and that this is Water's style of leadership. It would be difficult if not impossible to change the culture without having respectful relationships.

They obviously photoshopped Bruce Lee's face over real life Joey Bosa footage.

I was married on October 16th 1993. The reception started at 3:00, kickoff against MSU was at 3:30. We had an open bar, 3 screens with the game on, and garlic sausage as on of the entree options. Ohio State won and I am still happily married (I think my wife is too).

I think we're good on the field. My concern is how our guys do in practice and during their limited free time. So, I'm going with leadership. Braxton needs to be that guy on offense and we need a senior to step up like Simon on D. I loved watching RDS play the game last year but I didn't see him leading the D.

I want to change names with the LA Arena League franchise. Could you imagine going to a KISS game next to the R&R HOF? Oh, and bring Kenny with the name and colors.

My son attended Honors and Scholars Day today. We didn't see any former players or celebs (only Brutus)  but we spent the $11.50 BuckID card that every kid in attendance received at Buckeye Doughnuts. I think the bacon covered maple cream stick was the deciding factor for my son. It may be a better closer than Coach Coombs.

We had a great day! I cannot believe how much campus (and the campus area) has changed. It is so much nicer than the days of Al DeSantis. There is a lot of new construction taking place on and off campus. The only disappointment was when I walked down to Mirror Lake and found that it was still drained and fenced in with no construction happening there.

I like the idea of the new grading system but it is stupid to limit the number of players to just 5 per team. If they limit the number of juniors receiving grades it should only affect teams outside the top 20 (pick your poll). The teams in the top 20 likely got there because they have more talented players than the teams not in the top 20.

There are currently 107 signed Braxton items on ebay; many are identical. It's not just a Bama/SEC thing.

Young players will get a lot of opportunities this year. 38/81 scholarship players have freshman. As these kids mature over the next 3-4 years, it is gonna get crazy around here. I can't remember ever having that many young players on the team. Other than o-line our starters have experience...2-deep gets sketchy with a lot of reliance on potential.

Yep, it would be ok to call white guys boys. There isn't a history of racism associated with using the term "boy" to put a white man in his place.

Nah..she goes straight with the N-word.
