Quaker Oatmeal Squares
Raisin Bran (in memory of summer mornings with Grandpa)
I'm with you Lucy... Life is the best. Also, haven't seen any love for Quaker Oatmeal Squares. I usually eat those right out of the box.
Exactly Chitown. I said the same thing last year when Oregon passed up tOSU after beating Portland St in week one. And they'll probably lose to Stanford again (if Stanford plays Stanford football).
I knew I shouldn't have clicked on this article because I'd only be mad at myself for not showing up. Looks like a good time. I will not be making the same mistake next year.
I met John a couple years back. Happen to sit next to him at a bar in Gahanna when he was in town for the HS hoops playoffs. Really nice guy who just loves sports. He's used his "celebrity" to create a scholarship fund. I know some of these guys annoy us, but they're not all the same.
I sometimes wonder if I'm the only one who doesn't really care for the NFL. I'll watch it if I'm at a bar with friends, but I could care less who wins. I agree it is so much more corporate than college ball and I can't stand the extra TV time-outs.

I ordered 2 of these last week and they should be delivered on Saturday (I'm counting on you USPS, don't let me down here).
Just got a pair of each. Pint glasses for pre-game/in-game; rocks glasses for post-game. I know, I know... that just leads to hangovers, but I ain't scurred
^This 100%. Yes, Braxton is amazing with the ball, but he's one guy. Every time Braxton does Braxton, it means another play-maker isn't getting the ball. I have the feeling that changes with JT running the offense, meaning defenses won't be able to key as much on the QB. JT can still run (at least in his highlights) but will spread the wealth.
According to Mike Florio on Bishop & Rothman, it's a suspension for the season. He won't miss next year's preseason.
I love hearing Buckeye basketball players saying "25-10 is unacceptable." Basketball school?
I keep hearing people taking issue with midnight ramp and I think this tradition needs to be understood in context. The point of this is to be prepared to perform in front of a crowded stadium, for which there is no dress rehearsal. It's not like the band can sub mid show for a member who wilts in this situation (unlike the football team). If you can do it in your underwear, you can handle the crowded stadium. This isn't to say that the tradition hasn't morphed into something else over the years; just referring to it's original purpose. And to be clear, I was not in the band, but have heard of this tradition and it's origins from actual band members, so any TBDBITL members feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken.
When the "business" portion of the cut is that short, believe it's called a millet... Military in the front, party in the back
I had an experience with a culture change in my time with OSUMGC, and it was nothing like what we're talking about here. This was merely bringing in a new director with a different way of doing things and some of the older guys didn't take it real well. I'm not sure what the long term effects of it were, but I know some older memebers chose to leave the group after 1 or 2 quarters with the new guy
One thing I will say is that there was a "group within the group" in OSUMGC for those who participated in our "rite-of-passage" and the cost of admission was to participate (to an extent). But I don't ever remember a time in my 4 years that anyone was pushed from Club for not participating.
Oyster, I agree. This was definately a lack of respect issue. I was in the OSU Men's Glee Club and we have similar traditions, especially the first-year "hazing". It was definetly a rite of passage, but it was always voluntary participation, always done in good fun, and there was always a line. That line was not established by the director; it came from the older members who understood the importance of the group's reputation. It also probably helped there were no women in the group, as it's a little awkard to over-sexualize in an all male group.
That said, those holding up the University as "doing the right thing" in this situation are somewhat deluded. I have no doubt the university was aware of some of this stuff for years and chose to ignore it. Especially midnight ramp. You're telling me that in a post 9/11 world, in one of the largest and most significant landmarks in Ohio, if not the country, a group of 220+ students could go in and march around in their underwear and the University PD, facilities management, and leadership would not be notified!?! Com'mon man!!! Think that through!
This stuff is nothing different than what happens when you put any large group of college kids together where comraderi is an essential. Maybe some of this stuff crosses the line, most of it sounds worse than it really is.
My college roommate was a TBDBITL member, as well as several friends. Nothing mentioned in the article is new; I heard about it when I was at tOSU (99-04). My take: the University has known about this stuff, Drake is just trying to make a statement.
Gene Smith, as the AD, is rewarded for the success of tOSU's athletic department. It's no different than a CEO getting a bonus based on the success of the company he/she runs.
Not to mention Sam's 5th foul. Hayes drops his shoulder and runs through him and they call Sam for God knows what. Definitely a Bo Ryan call there.

blood & semen cupcakes and Viagra."
I was thinking about this the other day...
Can you image what it'll feel like to be the poor hapless bastards that have to face us in the Rose Bowl if we get left out. You thought Urban created a pissed-off football team last year? And odds are we'll face Oregon... If they were dominated by Standford's power run game, imagine what El Guapo will do to them...
