Sorry folks, the park's closed. The moose out front shoulda told ya.

If people played monopoly the right way it wouldn't drag on forever. The big reason that the game takes forever is, according to Harbo: "Whenever you land on an unowned property you may buy that property from the Bank at its printed price. You receive the Title Deed card showing ownership; place it face up in front of you. If you do not wish to buy the property, the Banker sells it at auction to the highest bidder."
Not that this would make the game a blast, but it might be a little better.
I miss the end of last years depth chart discussions ending with the starting holder position.
Real question though - in case there is a bad snap, wouldn't you want someone a little more agile who can make something happen on a busted play?
Classy move. Go bucks!
That's all well and good but who is the starting holder? No one will ever fill Kenny G's shoes. No one.
I have complete faith in that young man's ability to distribute the rock. Let's not forget that he was EXTREMELY highly rated coming out of high school (let's also take that with a grain of salt as high school rankings don't always translate to the next level). He wouldn't be at OSU if they didn't think he would be able to contribute.
I feel awful for Braxton but I'm actually looking forward to this season. I think its going to be interesting to say the least.
It's been a couple of years since I've been excited about men's hoops in the fall. I really feel like the class Matta put together could do great things.
Depending on the position I would say it could be either. A freshman contributing serious playing time in the offensive backfield would mean they have serious talent. A freshman contributing serious time at O-Line might mean lack of depth. I may be wrong though. It's happened before.
Not that I'm covering any new territory here - This is a great tradition that I hope continues forward past Meyer's reign as head coach. I'm all about earning it and proving you should be there through your hard work. Just goes to show how great of a motivator Meyer is.
To me, the most surprising response to any of these questions is that Minnesota is the most likely "trap" game on the schedule. It makes sense as the guys above pointed out though - coming on the heels of a huge game against Sparty, there could be a let down. Couple that with the lack of experience and it could be a problem. However, I trust that the coaches will have the team motivated regardless of the opponent.
Tim, do you like movies about gladiators?
Compared to the money sent by Uncle Sam to The Ohio State University, the entire football budget is a rounding error.
This may be the most accurate, well said summation of this event I've read yet. Good on you, sir.
M Man - your take on most posts I've followed here may not necessarily be the most popular but they are almost always logical and they hit the nail on the head.
Estaban Weaver was easily the best high school basketball player I've ever seen in person. I remember watching him practice at Hartley. He threw an alley oop off of the side wall of the gym (the top part of the wall above the bleachers) to himself and slammed the ball home. It was absolutely amazing.
In my head I think Decker really meant: "Thank you sir. May I have another? Thank you sir. May I have another?"
Very possibly the best defensive line in the country. From line to total defense may be a bit of a stretch. It's a nice thought though.
No I'm not. You are.
It is said that you win in the trenches on either side of the ball. With all of the questions marks still out there on defense, a line that is disruptive and that doesn't let our opponents get into a groove will be invaluable.
That's illegal - in ohio at least. Some states don't have laws against price gouging, others cap the % increase that a merchant can use while selling goods during an emergency.
edit - there is technically no law forbidding price gouging in Ohio per se, there is a law forbidding "unconscionable sales practices" - which can be interpreted pretty liberally.
Probably not - However, I'm sure this young man loves football and just wants to play. He probably realizes that he won't be playing on Sundays. Why not transfer and make the most of what's left of your eligibility. In terms of the degree - I would imagine that he could transfer hours back over to OSU to graduate.
Regardless, best wishes to this young man. I hope he finds what he's looking for in Akron.
If they don't have footage of the kickers pulling snow loaded sleds and tossing giant logs, I will be extremely disappointed by this years camp.
Franklin Park may be the definition of "diamond in the rough". The park is absolutely unbelievable in the Spring but it is extremely unfortunate the direction that neighborhood has gone in terms of crime.
Tapping into a pipeline that traditional flows to Michigan. I love it.
I came to say this. You beat me to it. A tip of the cap to you, sir.
