He was a better qb. He was fast and very athletic. My favorite memory from that season was when we played Johnathan Alder. They had a db named Donnie Nickey. He picked off Groom and ran it back for 6. Those 2 would later be teammates.

Just wanted to share a story about Andy Groom. I was a freshman at Hartley when he was a senior. In our first game, he handed me his kicking shoe and told me it was my job to make sure I was ready to hand it to him at every extra point and kickoff. This lasted for about 3 series until I looked like an idiot for walking the sideline with a shoe. 

This is the genesis of my screen name. Groom is a very good guy from a very good family. Glad to see he is doing well.

My two cents - finish the degree. Once you finish, try consulting on the side if your schedule allows it. If you find yourself not liking the private sector through consulting, I would imagine you would have your answer. Luckily for you, you aren't carrying the financial burden and that will give you some flexibility when it comes time to make a decision. The good news is you're in a great city no matter which route you choose. Columbus has a great public institution that supports research and also a thriving economy. The future is bright young man.

My mom told me I'm the best poster ever and she will "helicopter parent" anyone who begs to differ.

How to recruit an 8th grader:

Pass a note that says will you go to the college football playoff with me? Circle Yes or No.

Interesting. What do you think makes the difference?

Makes complete sense especially the part about what the money for ticket sales, etc... Go towards.

I could see a couple of thousand people show up to root on the guy who did script Ohio with DNA.

The article was definitely well written - it was the content that bothered me. Not that it really matters but I have no issue with you linking to the story.

I honestly look forward to what you decide to link to each Skull Session. You put together an interesting mix of content. Thank you for that, sir.

Bull fighting is bad, actually. It's not an impressive feat when you realize how the animals are prepared for the events - often drugged, Vaseline over their eyes so they are partially blinded, noses and ears stuffed with newspaper or cotton to limit senses of smell and sound. I'm not a PETA guy by any stretch of imagination, but bull fighting is awful.

Does he bleach himself? That is one strangely white individual.
