I've always been leary of MENSA haters. They typically 1) fear high expectations - but not envy, 2) fail to grasp that group membership and 'results' are both rewarded by life, and 3) aren't aware that mental illness and intelligence are not significantly correlated.
Got your ring and some great memories. Your Rose Bowl catch was the difference-maker. Best of luck, Jake.
Kyle - Thanks for helping make 11W the best Buckeye site on the internet. Big shoes to fill. Best of luck in FW.
Agree completely, Citrus. On both points.
Messi will be too busy filling out tax forms to attend.
Great 'real world' advice, DJ. Well done.
Every morning I spend more time reading Eleven Warriors web columns than my daily stock charts. I'm poorer - but much happier.
Funny how seeing the end of an dismal NFL career can elicit fond memories of college. OSU has moved on from the Tressel/Pryor debacle and so should TP. On the other hand, Lord Jim might consider bringing TP to YSU as his consigliere. Now there's a match.
Love it! Always be closing, UFM.
Please. Nevins is a lawyer; he dances to the tune his employer is p[l]aying. Nothing new here, DJB, except off-season empty space. Get back to us when you can confirm Tressel's second miracle.
The lengths Tressel acolytes will go to defend their fallen idol is astounding. If your questionable scenario is, in fact, true, it would have been a relatively simple matter for Tressel's attorney to back channel with the NCAA relative to the federal investigation and mitigate his client's liability. Sorry, but, per the 'choices' of the new YSU prez are concerned -- what you see is what you get.
It's not about the number of bad decisions you make; it's about the type and magnitude of those decisions. Lying to your superiors and the NCAA is bit more than merely a poor decision. It was premeditated and, in Tressel's case, breathtakingly hypocritical. Good decision, HOF.
Clearly, it's not about a Ph.D., per se; it's about a 'doctorate.' And YSU is now the fourth D1 institution without a 'doctor' at the helm. A new trend in higher education? Hardly.
Good, albeit unpopular, point, MTROTB. Amusing to read the strained endorsement by YSU's Faculty Senate representative. However, given the college's academic reputation, it probably is a good fit.
As appealing as it is to many Ohioans, it's highly unlikely the faculty at YSU would allow a non-academic 'celebrity' to take the reins of their institution. Tressel would no doubt raise some money for YSU, possibly even influence favorable legislation, but he's unqualified to be its president and won't get the job.
Just one of many reasons why OSU is much better off with UFM at the helm of the program.
Excellent points, Buckeye_Chick. Apparently lies and hypocrisy should be overlooked as long as they are perceived to be less egregious than those of prior inductees. Brilliant.
Agree. His agent and publicist need to get their story straight before TP sends out another pr tweet.
