We reserve the right to still hold past transgressions against you.

And what are those, exactly?

Lewan knocking out a guy a foot shorter, and 150 lbs less than him, because he rooted for a team that just broke Michigan's heart...again?   Or that kicker prick who thinks "no" really means "yes, come and get it".  Or Csonte York knocking out a fellow student athlete for bumping into him?  Or $180,000+ in unpaid *loans* from boosters that the ATF, FBI and Grand Jury determined Chris Weber took and resulted in a still standing NCAA record for most vacated wins by a school?  Or CFB's only starting felon; Frank Clark?  Or the unauthorized and illegal additional football practices that Michigan was housing and got years of NCAA probation for?  Or Thomas Rawls for larceny, theft, robbery and general asshatery?

Oh.  You probably mean Tressel?  $400 in merch for tats?  Yeah.  The national outrage for that dwarfed Gurly selling autographs, Manziel doing the same, SCAR players receiving over $59K in impermissible benefits, UNC with the biggest and most egregious academic scandal in collegiate history and just about everyone on the Miami roster getting paid in dollars and hookers as little as 3-4 years ago.

Yea, the difference is Harbaugh has done ALL of the things you just said in like 2 months

And still has a pathetic recruiting class.  I imagine if he speaks to parents in homes, he way he speaks in front of cameras -- with concussion syndrome and gems like "coming out of the womb to all the sounds and lights", "and attacking days with enthusiasm unknown to mankind", then he's probably going to continue to get a lot of "thanks, but no thanks".

Might be the most careless advice I've ever read.  Then again, it's the Internet, so...

My fiancee and I both are 100K+, thanks entirely to tOSU.  Both mid-late 20's.   No chance, luck or happenstance involved.  No sales; no living off commisions and stress from one month to the next.  Granted, she's making zilch atm as she's returned to school; 2nd year med student at NEOMED, in Rootstown OH; I'm a research pharm in critical care.  You can take your chances learning a couple lines of code and hope to buck the odds, or insure your future with a real, tangible education.

I'll take 100 random college graduates.  You take 100 random nongrads.  Lets see who wins in 20 years.   By winning; upper 1% of income.  Retirement set.  Pension.  Job creators.

You don't want to take this bet, trust me.

Ole Miss is certainly considered one of the best by people who've made it a hobby to experience college fandom across the country.  No shortage of times I've read that The Grove should be on every CFB fan's bucket list and supposedly has no peer.  

Comment 28 Mar 2015

If I could live a set of Ground Hog Day "years" over and over, repetitively, it would be my four years in Columbus.  No doubt in my mind whatsoever.  Enjoy the years in undergrad.  They will fly by much too fast.

Comment 27 Mar 2015

Down 21-6 only made the Sugar Bowl and it's tradition, history and the fact our opponent was Alabama, that much more meaningful.  Doesn't mean the NCG was any less meaningful, but the Sugar Bowl performance exercised long-standing demons and squarely inserted our foot up the doubter's asses that claimed OSU "didn't belong".

Best show, 1992 Metallica/GNR in Indianapolis Hoosier Dome . 

I 'dated' one of Slash's ex-girlfriends for exactly one weekend in Chicago a couple of years ago.  I honestly don't believe we left the hotel room except for smoke breaks (and I don't even smoke).  I spent the following week in traction. 

Comment 25 Mar 2015

Just a guess, but something tells me that no matter what he said, some of you guys would still shit on it.  Not defending him, but some people just come up with whatever reason to hate the guy.

He's a wolver-weenie.  That's all the reason in the world if you're a Buckeye.  Anyone who believes a Buckeye needs more reason than that doesn't get the rivalry. 

Comment 24 Mar 2015

My experience with them this winter/spring is 3-4 weeks is about the norm.  Quite a bit longer if you had the misfortune of ordering during CNY.  I ordered a few blank Cleveland Indian jerseys for example (figuring they've had warehouses full of them since the jersey hasn't changed in a few years now) and rec'd them at or around three weeks.  Maybe a day or two less.

Both my scarlet and white national championship & Sugar Bowl jerseys, on the other hand, took a bit longer -- could just be coincidence.

Bill Gates didn't need one. Steve Jobs didn't need one.


I can't believe someone over the age of 15 actually said this and presumably meant it as a reasonable argument.  Tell that to the 109,631,000 American households on some form of U.S govn't welfare benefits.  While some of those households have a holder of a real, U.S. degree, 97%+ do not.  Some just don't want to work.  Some are ill.  Some are physically unable.  Most have no marketable skill.  Just like Gates and Jobs.

But you do bring up a sweet point. Vesna Vullovic survived a 10,000 meter free fall from a plane without a parachute.   No one else should need one then either.

Derp, derp.

Incidentally, I ordered a few extra to cover variations in size and whatnot.  As a result, I've an extra Cardale Jones (pic'd above) with precision patchwork, jock tags and swooshes if anyone  is interested.  It's an XL. If you've wanted one and didn't feel like waiting around 3-5 weeks, I'll sell to you at my exact cost.  $27.00 and I won't make a single penny.  Shoot me your email and we'll make arrangements.

EDIT: sold

You can withdraw from a Roth for a first time home buyer if the accounts been open 5 years.  Or at least you once could.  And it can only be contributions, not your earnings (assuming there was any).  Oddly enough, you could have owned 10 houses/homes, or even 100, yet the only entity in the world that would define a "first time home buyer" as one who hasn't owned one in the last three years, is the good old Internal Revenue Service.

Comment 15 Mar 2015

False - you can withdraw the contributions at any time. It's just the earnings that you have to wait.

That's a good point. You've already paid your taxes on those contributions. Their yours.
