Thanks, man. This is obviously not the right place but I guess now that you all know I'm 17 I just want to try and offer some pointless insight. I enjoy tradition just as much as you guys do, but please keep in mind my most distant football memory is losing to Florida in the championship. Heck, I was too young to even care, really. I remember how angry my Dad was, and I remember the score. Anyways, I digress. Tradition is great and all, but those all black uniforms from a month or so back were so epic, I could see why they would be considered, even if only as a recruiting tool. Also, I don't know how you guys felt about the helmets with the fat stripe and the almost holographic leaves, but I thought they looked sexy as hell.
That is correct I did choose. But I am certainly less than happy with the result. I applied to multiple places (Pet Supplies Plus, Meijer, Piada, Kroger obviously, Music Go Round) without a single response. I guess they see that I'm a 16 year old and automatically think "oh, well this kid is clearly a thug" haha. But that's not true. I do my homework, get good grades, and I play games on PC whenever I'm not working. Anyways I don't really know where I'm going with this response, but if unions were to become the norm in college athletics, and I'm not really sure that they would, the athletes wouldn't be able to choose. They would join the union and I'm sure some would like it. Some, however, would get caught up in it all, and would find their sentiment just as scorned as I find mine. In my opinion the union just takes your money until you can benefit their ultimate cause which is to stick it to the man that's got us all down! haha anyways I'm done I guess.
Hello guys, my name is OSUPhilosopherAndHomer and I am a 17 year old junior in high school. I don't post much but am on this website just about all day. I live in Columbus, Ohio and work at a local Kroger. I applied just a few days after my 16th birthday, and was excited to put some money in my pocket, even if the hours were garbage
and the people were even worse (trust me they were and still are haha).
Now when Kroger accepted my application and gave me a job, I was told that I had to join the union. I'm not exactly familiar with my employee rights or whatever, but I was fairly sure that I could not be forced to join a union. I was told that I wouldn't be given a job unless I joined, so I did. It all sounded fine and dandy anyways: my voice was going to be better heard and represented, it would bring the workplace together, and as a whole the employees of Kroger could better fight for what we believed in. I bought in.
I was well aware that the union took a piece of my paycheck, but was astonished at the size of the amount. Not only this, but the union is stupid! There I said it. I have no idea how the employees of Kroger and thus I am represented, and I still feel that my opinion is worthless. I believe that I'm essentially forced into an opinion which I may or may not hold myself, because I'm placed into the category of "the majority of the union believes 'X'." The union doesn't care about me, they just want my money. I guess my point is that I joined the union so that my voice would be heard, but in the end my voice is still not heard and the union goes to the liberty of taking a sizeable amount of my paycheck in exchange for the "services" they provide, the fruits of which are either not noticed by me or not extended to me. Okay end rant, final point: unions may not be as great as they seem.
I don't know how I feel about athletes being paid, but I consider myself to be a smart kid who will doubtlessly be applying to The Ohio State University in just a few months. There are not many things I wouldn't give to get my hands on a four year education without any debt, and to think that these athletes don't even care about their education or are put in pathetic classes and given an A- for a shitty paragraph written about Rosa Parks that the student probably had his tutor write up for him appalls me. So I ask why even bother calling them student athletes? That scholarship could be better used on literally anyone else. Yeah I just went there, and I hope that some of you who have had kids in college agree. Sorry, but I firmly believe in what has been said. We've all seen athletes in high school who play football yet can hardly read or write.
The game wasn't called against us, if you ask me (not that anyone did or ever should). If the game wasn't called right, it was at the very least called consistently wrong.
Unfortunate. They did well in the B1G tourney and in my opinion they proved that they can play pretty dang tough.
Very exciting game! Awesome play down the stretch had me jumping all over the room haha. Clutch on the line. Pressure on the inbound. I like it. A lot.
Competition is about being smarter, faster, and stronger than one's opponent. If they can't keep up, leave them in the dust! When they've got their hands on their hips and your team is just getting started, that's when all the ridiculous training pays off.
I just discovered today that the default icon is the football player #0 with a buckeye for a head. I kept thinking to myself "How in the hell does this guy keep making all these comments?" haha. I mean he was making like 5+ posts per story, sometimes within minutes of each other!
I love getting kids from all over, but it just doesn't get any better than the local kids, in my opinion. They know what it means to be a Buckeye and they're ready to work their heart out. They get to live the dream that so many of us (myself included) had. They get to play football for Ohio State! Because of that alone I love him already. I'm extremely happy to root for this kid. Good luck, Brady!
Delay of Game hurts
I take my theory back! haha
The hat with the bent bill is always the safe bet as to which school he'll pick. That time the Clemson hat was bent as well, though
This stings. Losing always stings. But I, just like you all, am very proud of this team and what they have accomplished. Some may say I'm just a fan. Some may say I have no right to refer to my team as "we" or "us. " Well I don't know how big of a part of this team I am, but I can say with full honesty that this team and The Ohio State Buckeyes and the great university for which they stand are an enormous part of me. When tragedy befalls the Buckeyes, it hurts as if it were my own child. We fans rally behind this team. This team is what we stand for. We gather together and contend against other fan bases who are equally as ravenous. We love our team and will stick with them always. And because of this, I feel that I along with all of us have the right to refer to The Ohio State Buckeyes as "we" or "us." Because they are part of me and I can only hope that I am a part of them. Luckily for me, I was born a buckeye. I was born into the largest fan base there is and into a place where I know I belong. As a lone fan, there is not much that I can do. All I can do is keep on keepin' on, keep rooting for my team through all. Keep yelling my damn head off just like my dad used to and just like my grandpa used to, as far as I know. I am a Buckeye, and I am damn lucky and damn proud. This has been a great season, and it is as great a time as ever to be a buckeye. Sorry about my pointless rant I referred to us as "we" at a bar and some man told me I couldn't do that which sparked this whole thing. Perk up guys, we could be _ichigan! Good night and Go Bucks!
I don't know who the guy is on the pregame show but he needs to learn to blink. He's freaking me out.
I agree with the above sentiment that they ganged up against Dontre, but you can't really suspend the Michigan players. However, I believe that it is clear that they instigated the brawl. I don't think there should be any suspensions against anyone, maybe just a slap on the wrist.
I don't care how it looked, I'm gonna have myself a big fat Victory Cigar and I'm gonna enjoy it. See you guys around and, as always, Go Bucks!
Usually I just feel void of any e_otion until The Ga_e starts. Then It does start and I get super pumped. And then the first ti_e anything re_otely bad happens I start to freak out. Then I spend the re_ainder of the ga_e biting _y nails until it's out of reach. I don't have to keep _y cool as long as the boys do! Go Bucks!
That's aweso_e! And that "Who Gon' Stop Us" song is actually growing on _e.... I gotta go listen to so_e Judas Priest or so_ething.... and fast!! haha
If (When) we beat MSU in the CCG will they drop all the way out of the rankings? Not sure if this comment is sarcastic or not?
Thank-You Seniors! *clap* *clap* *clap, clap, clap*..... Go Bucks!
I swear every play I watch at least one Iowa defender gets through the line untouched and nearly kills Gardner. I can't help but think that we'll do much worse.
I'll be honest, I'm not all that psyched about these unis as I LOVE the traditional OSU road uniforms. However, I dig the wide stripe on the helmet so much that I'm okay with it overall. We'll still look sexy, we'll still be The Ohio State University, and, finally, we will still kick their collective *sses! Go Bucks!
Oh my goodness...
