My season tickets are in D deck. (19 D row 2)   Would not trade them for any other location in the stadium.  I like seeing the entire field and the plays develop.  Many times I can call the outcome of the play before the snap because I can see the entire alignment of the D.  Just bring some binoculars if you like to see things close up.  The price sounds a little high, but I love the view from up there.  I might add that I realize that many on here would never consider sitting in the "nose bleed" area.  FWIW, since I live in Seattle I can not make it back to all the games.  I have close friends who will buy my tickets, but when I am in town they opt not to attend the games because they say they have been spoiled by my seats - don't want to sit anywhere else.

I fall into the "two favorite teams on any weekend" crowd when it comes to football.  My favorite, of course, is tOSU.  And, my second favorite is the team playing Notre Dame that weekend.  Basketball is a little different.  The Buckeyes are still my favorite, but the rest of the field is pretty much meh, because it seems the zebras control too much of that game.

I enrolled in 1970 when they accepted anyone with an Ohio HS diploma.  Must admit that I was lazy in HS because I knew I could get in by just coasting through HS. Freshman year was tough but I survived. Graduated in 74 with a 3.0 gpa - thanks Freshman year- and a 3.7 in my major (Marketing).   Knowing today's standards I probably would have applied myself more in HS in order to qualify. Never a question of where I wanted to attend college.  Would have gone the branch route if necessary.  

FYI - tuition when I enrolled was about $325 per quarter.  Was still under $500 per quarter when I graduated.

There are a lot of college athletes who rep Advocare.  I knew a FB athlete from Arkansas who started into it while he was still playing.  According to him, there were a lot of athletes from many schools who use the products and sell them - this was about 4 years back.  Seems like someone figured out how to tap into the college athletics scene and they are still doing it.  Makes some sense, the product line lends itself well to people wanting tone up and who better to hit up than athletes who need every advantage they can get?   And, the younger the target the less likely they are to be wise to the ways of binomial progression marketing.

That word has several different meanings.  Only one of the meanings is derogatory: 

1. a female dog, wolf, fox, or otter.

2. informal derogatory
a spiteful or unpleasant woman. synonyms: witch, shrew, vixen, she-devil, hellcat, harridan, termagant, virago, harpy;
archaic grimalkin

a woman.
a person who is completely subservient to another.

3. informal
a difficult or unpleasant situation or thing

4. informal
a complaint.

1. express displeasure; grumble.

Hovenaut was not using it in the derogatory context.  Insinuating that a female (or anyone for that matter) is a ***** is derogatory use of the word.

Vitale is no longer has never been fun.

There, fixed that for you!

Comment 15 Mar 2015

I know that I would absolutely feel that way if the tables were reversed.  I love the Buckeyes, but an association with them does not necessarily make one a good TV personality.  Coach Cooper once did color commentary for a bowl game.  I thought it was possibly one of the worst jobs in any bowl that season.  Dick Vitale is obnoxious any way you look at him - with or without a connection to OSU.

Used to love to have a beer during the game, but beer is not so nice to me now.  I opt for a bloody mary or a nice red wine, or a glass of bourbon (preferred).  The food can be just about anything, but I prefer something done on my Traeger - brisket, pulled pork, baby backs or wings.  Gotta admit, the baby backs are my favorite.  Simple prep on the Traeger.  I make my own rubs as my wife is allergic to all bell peppers, so my rubs lack any cayenne or such.  We get the giddy up from other things, including cinnamon, garlic, onion....  As a result, my BBQ sauces are a little sweet, but not overly.  Tang is delivered via lemon juice or vinegar.  It actually comes out pretty good.  Had a lot of friends from TX ask me for my recipes.

It is fortunate, indeed, that the creators of this site are a compassionate bunch.  They created a forum with a conscious that quickly gets rid of the trolls that would egg on a person in need of help.  Thanks Jason and all the staff for having the wisdom to keep this site sane and safe.

His clinics work with hormone dosing, specifically testosterone.  There are several other 'men's clinics' that push the same thing.  Ah, the quest for the fountain of youth!  It is alive and flourishing (bringing in big bucks).

You can get into the atrium at the WHAC during business hours without a reservation.  However, touring the facility requires an appointment.  You need to contact the Athletic Department to arrange such.  There was mention of a revamp of the atrium to better showcase the trophies - don't know if that has started or not.  Here is the web page for the center:
