What kind of pie was it?  To me that's the most important part.  Was it cherry? Apple? Peach? Pecan? Chocolate Cream? Banana Cream? Blackberry? Blueberry? Raspberry?  WHAT WAS IT?!  DJ WE DEMAND ANSWERS.

P.S. Don't say pizza.  It's not a pie.  Come at me bros.

Good for him and exactly what he should be saying as a player (note to self, don't talk to him about it)...BUT COME ON, there's a difference between players and fans.  

This championship was probably the best season I've experienced as a Buckeye (maybe '02 was better, but, you know, recency bias and the playoffs were fun as hell).  I'm going to think about this Championship all I want and IDGAFF what anyone, including our own players, has to say about it.  I appreciate what you have to say Mr. Lee, but I'm a grown ass man and I'm going to think about it and talk about it with friends whenever I DAMN WANT. BOOYAHHHHHHHHHHHH. #counterculture

TL;DR is that it was customary for integrated northern teams to have black players sit out when they played segregated southern teams.  PSU played SMU in the 1948 Cotton Bowl and SMU requested that they oblige by the custom and asked to meet to discuss their grievances.  Their response was reportedly "we are Penn State, there will be no meetings." (IMO College Football's equivalent of the famous "nuts" during the Battle of the Bulge).  Love or hate Penn State you gotta respect how badass that story is.

On another note, I wish they cheered the whole response: "We are! Penn State!  THERE WILL BE! NO MEETINGS (especially on a Friday afternoon!)"

Statistically, they had one of the best years IN NBA HISTORY.  I think the Cavs could have won if healthy, but to say they are one of the worst in recent memory is a total farce.

Awesome as usual.  One question though: I was under the impression that there was no "checking in" in college and that if you were wearing 50-79 you were always prohibited from touching a forward pass, is that not the case?

You caught me...I faked my death so that I could defend pricing structures based on R&D, manufacturing, logistics, etc. costs on an Ohio State Buckeyes message board.  My brilliant scheme has been exposed.

NOTE: I'm about to get heated with a #fresh #hot #take, so watch out.

Re: the Apple iWatch cost--this drives me crazy. YES THE PARTS COST $85, but that is such a misleading number.  As the article mentions in a single sentence buried at the end of the piece:

Note that the analysis does not include logistics, amortized capital expenses, overhead, R&D, software, IP licensing and other costs.

Without those numbers the $85 is meaningless and I'd wager that those costs are substantial.  YES, this is capitalism and they are trying to make a profit, but that profit IS NOT $265 ($350-$85), as would be suggested by touting the whole "BUT THE WATCH ONLY COSTS $85!!" thing.  And my complaint isn't that they wrote the article itself, it's that it (and others like it) will be cited to show the moral decay of business and make all sorts of ill-informed arguments.

NOW GET OFF MY LAWN.

Nothing like exploiting the "cool" factor as a business.

Seriously...I don't have $6.99 in my pocket for a scoop of pretentious ice cream.  Graeter's ALL DAY.

Comment 20 Apr 2015

I strongly endorse this.  I come to this site to avoid all of that crap and argue about important things like football and where 17 year old boys should play football.

Exactly. Give him the option, at the very least it diminishes the impact that this thing can have when other schools are negative recruiting against Ohio State.
