Agreed. I HATE the stupid slide shows. I get they want to sell ads, but enough is enough. I also hate web videos instead of a news story. What happened to just reading a news story?!

I feel absolutely horrible about this. I grew up in another state and never cheered for OSU because my uncle went there and was an extreme Buckeye fan. I cheered for Miami in 2002 because I knew my uncle would be insufferable. Then I got accepted to OSU for law school (I applied at my uncle's insistence). After attending OSU, I Now bleed Scarlet and Gray and the rest of my family hates me for being a crazy Buckeye fan ! Still, I feel horrible. I was such a fool! Forgive me,Buckeye nation!

Agreed.  Make fun of the school, not the kid. My undergrad school only gets about 1 or 2 two star recruits a year. When they get a 3 star, its a time for serious celebration. The rest of their recruits are unranked.  So its good to keep things in perspective.

The best bathrooms have a double-hinge swinging door and motion sensor soap, faucet and paper towels. Xanadu!

I throw the paper towel behind the door with the others. I figure the janitor will eventually take the hint to move the garbage can.

I am out here in SLC as well after grad school at OSU. Not a bad place if you love mountains, skiing and no humidity. Plus, it's fun to rub it in Ute fans faces that Urban left them and now wins titles for the Buckeyes.

If Kalis would have just kept his mouth shut, it wouldn't have been such a big deal. Recruits flip all the time. But he had to go out and talk trash about "blood on the field."  I hope the Buckeyes continue to pummel him for his last two years.

Appreciate the research, Slumlord.  I think people underestimate the stigma that some people associate with tattoos. In the white collar marketplace, I believe a visible tattoo is likely to hurt much more than it could ever help. I've seen it happen.  I've heard hiring managers say things like "I don't want another person with a bunch of weird tattoos and eyebrow piercings...."  Appearance absolutely matters.

I don't understand the appeal of tattoos either or other types of self-mutilation (gauges that stretch the ear lobes).  Its ultimately their body, and if they are okay with the consequences, then I don't care.  Just don't ask the taxpayers to pay for its removal because no one will hire you because you got a tattoo on your forehead.  That's when I start to have a problem.
