I grew up a Buckeye in the heart of Lion country, PA. My Brother-in-Law is an OSU graduate, so I visited his graduation in the 'Shoe when I was very young. Even then, I loved what I saw. That was the beginnings of what became my adulthood man-crush on anything Ohio State. Fortunately, I can actually call Columbus my home, as I moved there with my kids in my early 20's! And now, I'm retired military, currently living in the sunny Southwest.

This would make me one very happy Prime member.   I moved on from cable TV almost 3 years ago.

I'm certain Vegas will be a player for the PAC-12 and other neutral site games, but I don't know how long it will take the NCAA to warm up to it.   I'm more intrigued by the distinct possibility of UNLV becoming a player for expansion and growing its football legs while they share that new stadium with the Raiders.

The most important thing a woman can do is speak up.  Why does most everything you just said feel contradictory to that?

In either case, guilty or not, "innocent until proven guilty" is a founding principle of our judicial system and a hallmark of modern free society.  Diminish that and you are on the wrong side of the ethics argument.

I grew up in PA and as a Buckeye fan, so I understand completely.  I circle the date, but only after I look up where the final game of the season falls.  

And I'm also part of that fringe group that hopes ALL other B1G teams do well, save for one game of the season.  I have a hard time feeling any true ill will towards college kids playing a game.  So yea, take that for what it's worth, I guess.
