Agreed. Gleitmann on buckets is saying basically that Urban is less than pleased with Studwara's OL coaching this year. Warinner killed on O Line, but not so much as OC. What I can't understand is that when they moved Warinner into the booth for the last few games last year, the offense suddenly clicked, and looked great. What happened this year to change it? Under developed OL and WRs?? Poor QB coaching?
I thought Tate looked a little stunned at first when he saw Eddie George, and tried to look nonchalant. I would imagine internally he wanted to jump up and down and run around the house hollering "holy effing sh#t Eddie George is in my kitchen making buckeyes and he gave me the Gatorade award!" and then collapse in a pile. But that would be seriously uncool, ya know?
On th subject of Kenny Guiton, since he was a grad assistant for Tom Herman at Houston, I wonder if Herman will be bringing him to UT?
Ooh, tacos in a bag, as we call them! One of the local high schools actually has them available at their concession stand during football and lacrosse games. Luckily for some, the stadium bathrooms are right nearby.
Grew up in BG, but I rarely make it back to 43402, as my parents while still there, spend time down south also. Almost didn't recognize Chip because last time I saw him, his hair was umm, darker. He sold the Dairy Queen that his family owned a few years ago. Oh well, I can understand why he wants to cash in his chips.
Didn't Urban turn down Notre Dame when they ended up hiring Brian Kelly? He was at Florida at the time, if I remember correctly. If he really wanted ND, why didn't he jump then? For that reason, I don't see him jumping to them. That bridge has been crossed.
You also need to understand that there is a Southern culture, and you are a Yankee. I speak with experience. Non-OSU daughter went south to an SEC school. She had to get adjusted to it. Are you interested in joining a fraternity? Alabama is a very big Greek school. When you visit, you might want to really pay attention to the vibes you feel while there. Do they feel good, or do you want to get the heck out of there quickly?
I get the dollars aspect, it is a huge issue these days. You really don't want to saddle yourself or parents with too much debt. And if you really want to get out of Ohio and go someplace, then Alabama might be a better fit for you. Now, that being said, do you hope to come back to Ohio after graduation? If so, an Alabama degree might not get you in as many doors as an OSU degree will. Not to mention, you will not make the same connections being out of state for 4 years. And these days, connections and internships often give you a leg up. But if you are flexible as to where you go post graduation, that point might be moot.
Have you called the OSU scholarship office? Let them know that you have a full ride to Alabama, they might up your scholarship $$. It does happen.
Good luck! It is a big decision.
I didn't mind the Mean Streak, as I couldn't handle going upside down on a coaster, gave me a nice case of vertigo every time, ugh. So yes, I became the one who held everybody's stuff while sitting on a bench near whatever coaster the others were riding. Did get some good people watching in though, I guess.
What absolute jerks. What in the hell were they thinking? Sumlin also deserves heat for this, as these are his coaches. I guess he never thought to review their chalk talk before the session. Humphhh. I wonder if the AD has Tom Herman's agent on speed dial?
What in the hell were they thinking? Do these coaches not have wives, sisters, mothers or daughters? If my brother had put together this crap I would have told him he was an effing idiot. And an ass to boot. Quite frankly, I will put some of the blame on Sumlin also for not reviewing their "chalk talk" before the session. After all, those coaches were representing the football program and the university.
Regarding those with PTSD, the big all news radio station in DC was asking people who would be hosting their own private, albeit illegal, fireworks display this weekend to please let the neighbors know, as there are a number of military veterans in this area dealing with PTSD. I can't remember ever having heard that request in previous years.
Way, WAY back when I was in middle school, my mom drove my best friend and me to the old Toledo Sports Arena, where we saw ZZ Top and Alice Cooper, back when Alice was with his original band, they had hit the big time. ZZ Top had not yet hit the charts, that was to come later that year, nor had they started to grow those beards. We came to see Alice Cooper, so who the hell was this not quite country not quite rock band? They sucked. They may have had a great set, but we couldn't care less about their music, so, they sucked. The crowd that night was very rowdy, not a good sign. Alice Cooper came on, finally, with lots of stuff being thrown on the stage. After a couple of songs, some idiot threw a lit firecracker onstage. It went off, the band immediately dropped their instruments and exited the stage, never to return. What made it worse was that the emcee came on the stage to say that they would be back if we all calmed down, so everyone waited, then waited some more, more pronouncements from the stage, until they told us the concert was cancelled and it would be rescheduled at a later date. I guess that made sense, as had they cancelled the show immediately after the band left the stage, the crowd probably would have torn the arena apart. And, as far as I know, they never came back to Toledo.
Yup, UNC's women beat Maryland also.
While I have not cruised, my parents have done a few of them, including river cruises. The river cruises were some of their very favorite trips, cruise or otherwise, and they have gone all over the world. The river cruises that they were on included locals (usually college professors/chefs/art historians) who talked about the history of the area, the cuisine, the art, etc. That then set them up for some great local expeditions to see museums, castles, historic sites, breweries, etc. My mom, who is definitely not into museums, absolutely loved it, and had a great time checking out the local sites. The rooms on the ship were well appointed, and the food was fabulous. But a lot of people would rather stick knitting needles in their eyeballs than do that kind of cruise, as they would rather do the more traditional cruise on a ship with pools and other activities. It just depends on what kind of cruise you want to have.
