Quite frankly, it was more to do with getting to watch the football games. Plus, locally where I'm at (NC/Ft Bragg area), the package I needed cost less than DirectTV/Dish. I still keep the Roku active for there are many kids shows my little ones like.

BuckeyeBoy, I bought the Roku last year after dropping DirectTV to cut costs in the house. It is simple, and utterly reliable. I'm back on cable but still have the Roku. Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, Pandora, etc., it's still being used. I highly recommend it. I don't know anything about the Apple (not an Apple user), but am very familiar and a fan of the Roku. FWIW

1. No, I don't see myself starting to watch soccer, whether it's leagues in the U.S. or anywhere else.

2. I will check the scores when they're posted, but that's about it. I will always hope for the best for any of our national teams, whether soccer, ping pong, or ice sweeping...

3. No on this also.

Nothing against the sport or those who follow it, but it holds little interest for me.

1) I prefer the old 11W site to the new one.

2) I can't stand the snob Buckeye fans who look down on those who didn't attend the university (but who have followed the Buckeyes since we could walk, but were unable to attend due to 'whatever' the circumstance). I've watched Buckeye games from every continent (except Antarctica) during various deployments, not matter the local time.

3) I'm still pissed off at Minnesota for the mugging they gave Luke Witte.

4) I want a QB who can pass.

5) I laugh at folks who flip out over GoT spoilers (or any other show spoilers).

Actually, he didn't say he wanted an apology, he said he didn't appreciate your disrespect. You are the one who said to go get an apology from Alex.

Comment 16 Jun 2014

I haven't heard, but I don't think I've seen any of the private school kids enroll early.

Comment 14 Jun 2014

Buck, just to point something out, Jeff did nothing on the 11W site, so pointing out the commenting policy here isn't relevant to him/twitter, and/or displaying his name. With regards to Skid, I don't believe MrCheng had a problem.

Comment 12 Jun 2014

Whether it's followed that often or not, it's the correct way to conduct business. Regardless, the individual referred to is not on 'staff'. It would have been just as effective if the name had been covered/removed. I enjoyed the article actually, but the one thing that struck me was the individuals actual name being displayed. Personally, I don't tweet at recruits (or anyone else for that matter), and find it odd those who do; and those who also get so emotionally wrapped up in a 16-18 y/o's decision making process.

Regardless of who you pick, just don't try to marry either...none of their husbands have fared well up to this point.

Comment 09 Jun 2014

No, but I do have a voracious appetite when going through a reading binge. I did the same with the Tom Clancy novels. One drawback, is that the disappointment once I've completed the books.

Comment 09 Jun 2014

Agreed on the separation of the book and the show. I just reread the entire book series last month, to refresh my memory. My opinion is that the books, and the battle at the wall, needed no 'rework'. If I hadn't read the books, the show would seem pretty incredible; however, since I have read the books, its disappointing in many aspects. **See, no spoilers**

Comment 02 Jun 2014

One way might be to stay away from these threads entirely, if you don't want any indication of either what just happened on the first airing of an episode (if you DVR it), or what might by upcoming in future episodes. No spoilers to those folks and everything is fresh and new when they watch it. It also keeps the repetitive griping about ruining the show/story. However, curiosity tends to take over, and one clicks on a thread  like this, and the 'Groundhog' day of complaints begin anew.

Comment 28 May 2014

Diversity is great; until we are so diverse we don't remember who we were. Take Washington DC for example; our nations capital feels like a foreign city due to all of the diversity. I'm sure many would argue that's a good thing. Me, I want my capital (or my state university) to emanate with a home grown, All American/Buckeye aura. Just my two cents.
