...tried to mention movies that people hadn't mentioned before. Lots of good stuff above. And although it's not a movie, The Simpsons seasons 3 through 8 were the best thing that humanity was ever blessed with.

I don't understand why you have to tell me to lighten up. Who said I was angry? But I am happy to bow out, lest we devolve into something like this:

Ole Buckeye: Or you could move to France! The ground floor is the zeroth floor there.

Comment 18 Nov 2015

No, there are four seasons between. 2015 - 2011 = 4. Look at this way:

2015 = zero seasons ago. It's zero seasons in the past. It's the present! How many seasons ago was 2015? Zero! This is still 2015!

Surely you would say that 2014 was ONE season ago, yes? You wouldn't say it's two seasons ago because you're counting 2014 + 2015. So don't include 2015 when you count back to 2011!

So, 2013 = two seasons ago

2012 = three seasons ago

2011 = four seasons ago

That's just as terrible, DJ.

2014 was one season ago.

2013 was two seasons ago.

2012 was three seasons ago.

2011 was four seasons ago.

Comment 18 Nov 2015

This is some terrible math, DJ.

5 - 1 = 4.

2014 was one year ago.

2013 was two years ago.

2012 was three years ago.

2011 was four years ago.

Inspiring stuff.

So proud of Meyer for picking Dolodale. He has a much lower ceiling; when our offense is better than the defense JT is the much better option; a surgeon. Takes the option for 40 yards instead of 2 to 8. But when the play breaks down Dolodale sees through all the trash and makes astounding plays. Part of that is he's a half-foot taller, the other half is that he's one of 1% of the QBs in the country who can dodge a rush, put his head down, pick it back up, and drill whichever wide receiver is open. I honestly think he's going #1 overall in the draft next year.

Our Buckeyes accomplished something tremendous and the president is honoring their accomplishment. It's a tradition spanning multiple decades. Part of being the president is performing ceremonial duties. This has been true since the founding of our great nation.

Perhaps! But when he's pairing "haze of bourbon" with "latent homophilia," that's not a good look. I can follow your reasoning though. In a sense, sports fandom is a celebration of the body just as fashion magazines are. But I don't want to have sex with Braxton Miller just because I derive pleasure from what his body can do on the football field.

Either way, his joke was easily interpreted as bigoted (at least by me) and therefore he, in the most charitable view, executed it poorly (at least according to me).

I know what the word latent means. The rest of your comment is a word salad. Originally you were talking about scouts; now it seems you're trying to claim that sportswriters unconsciously overpraise gay athletes relative to straight ones—a phenomenon that, due to my lack of sophistication, I am ignorant to.

Dude, you were making a gay joke. It's not the end of the world, but there's no place for that tacky shit and it deserves to be called out.
