I'm currently a PhD student at THE Ohio State University, studying Aerospace Engineering. Specifically, I am researching fundamental particle impact characteristics in both cold and hot (2000 F) flows to help define a model for particulate deposition in gas turbine engines that can lead to early part failure.

Thanks, guys. Just wanted to see if anyone knew something I didn't. I guess I'll be streaming the games, then :(

football success can result in more applicants

Hard to quantify that as anything more than correlation/coincidence, but it stands to reason that increased national presence (for any reason) might result in more applications to the university. With more applicants comes more students that stay on for graduate work,  which is critical for a university's financial success and for bringing in top talent (both students and faculty).

"Crap, we've only run 3 of our 4 scheduled trick plays! Better get that last one now."

It's pretty good at preventing you from maintaining the lead...

Still 17-17...something like 5:30 left, FSU ball around the 25.

Comment 19 Nov 2014

Hmm...in no particular order:

  • Halo series
  • Minecraft
  • Bioshock Infinite (if you've never played it, drop whatever you're doing and BUY THIS GAME)
  • Gears of War
  • NCAA 07

If the offense snaps the ball before the play clock reaches 29 seconds, a 5-yard, delay-of-game penalty will be assessed.

So, let me get this straight. If the offense tries to speed up the progression of the game too much, they get a delay of game penalty.

Brilliant. It's like getting cited for loitering because you were doing 35 in a 25.

Did the ju_p for both _y fresh_an and sopho_ore years at OSU (07 and 08). Was cold as s*** both ti_es, but it was a hell of a lot of fun.

Later in the same article:

“We’re going to go ahead and handle our business and play our best game every week,” he said. “We know that we just have to go out and execute. If we go out and execute for a full game, there’s nobody in the country that we feel can hang with us when we’re executing the way that we can.”

Blown out of proportion, much?
