I didn't jail you, but whenever threads like this show up it's always fun to check the posting history. A sampling:

Like i said, people dont like the actual truth.

cowards who cant handle the truth of the situation keep either locking them or deleting them

Oh and look, I was right again. Team sucks

Oh you mean bucknut94? Yeah that little asshole is ok with us getting humiliated not once not twice but now three times, im not ok with it

And those are the ones that didn't get deleted.

Just spitballing at what might have led to your jailing: attacking another poster, attacking the mods, being unproductively negative and posting the same shit repeatedly. You can support your argument (and you have posts that did this re: player development) but you diminish those posts with ones like this.

I also enjoy when Paul McCartney shows up during the Grammys or some live televised concert and Twitter explodes with "who is this old guy why is he there" tweets.

This is one of those desert island albums for me.

Jar of Flies is just plain gorgeous. It is by turns folky, dark, poppy, creepy, edgy and lyrical. It is amazing – what rock and roll in the 60s and 70s aspired to spawn. I'm probably preaching to a choir of people who were already singing these hymns. 

Yes it is, and yes you are.

Love those Beams. I got to go to the Bonded launch party in Chicago last year and wish it was a weekly thing.

Two most irritating things for me about bourbon culture -

1) Tourists in search of vanity driving up the price of good bourbons, e.g. what's happened to PVW since 2012.

2) Shaming for not drinking bourbon neat. Stupid macho bullshit.

That said, when I see a glass filled all the way to the very top with ice cubes and the bourbon in it is so diluted it's looking like tap water from Flint - I'll say something. That's a teachable moment.

The wife bought me Bourbon Curious: A Simple Tasting Guide for the Savvy Drinker its a pretty good read.

Really good book. I reviewed it here.

Bourbon belongs in the bottle on a shelf in room temperature or tumbling out of a glass into your mouth. What you choose to put in the glass with it (ice, water, cocktail stuff, nothing) is up to your palate. I drink most bourbon neat, I love a good Old Fashioned or Manhattan and if there's a bourbon that's way too puckered for me (e.g. Stagg, Bookers, PVW 23 back when it was readily available) I'll put in a purified still water cube in it to open it up so I can taste more of it.

Ramzy has a great article on starter bourbons and picking the right one for you. I'm sure someone here will link it for you.

I think you mean this?

 Watershed gave me a colossal hangover from one double. Ditto Makers 46. I won't touch either again; go with what agrees with you.

 I believe what you actually proved very effectively is the Buckeyes tend to be more productive on offense (and thus win games) when they are more balanced in the use of the RB throughout the game.

That was the intent, to highlight tendency in crisis. But 1) oversimplification happens 2) people comment without reading everything all of the time 3) shouting GIVE IT TO HYDE is far more fun than shouting THE THREAT OF THROWING DOWNFIELD AND INCORPORATING THE RUNNING BACK INTO THE SEQUENCING KEEPS DEFENSES ON THEIR HEELS AND THEREFORE SHOULD PRODUCE MORE EFFICIENT DRIVES THAT PRODUCE POINTS

Comment 20 Jan 2016

I am saying there is a lot more to 50 wins then 6 carries in the fourth quarter of four defeats.

Of course there is. What's telling is in the four games they lost - with varying degrees of defensive efficacy - the number of times Hyde or Zeke got the ball remained 1) constant and 2) significantly lower than the touches they have in any other quarter. Two, one, one and two. That's 1.5 carries for Ohio State's tailback in the 4th quarter of games they were leading, tied or within 1 point - and they lost all four.

It jumps off the damn screen.

So respected, he even had a plaque up at Michigan's track when I was still running competitively in the '70s (track records, etc.)  I'm told it's still there -

It is. True story - Dave Brandon wanted to rip up Ferry Field and put in a pay parking garage (he was frustrated looking at it out of his office window, all that space not #maximizingrevenue) but was told he couldn't do it. He then tried to say it was a liability issue; that someone could be walking on the track and fall down and sue the university. UM lawyers told him that could happen literally anywhere on university property, including a parking garage. 

What Owens did there that day is the greatest athletic achievement of all time.
