This is probably right.  Stress induced migraines would not be a huge surprise to me.  He's A) Battling for the starting job and under intense scrutiny, B) has a daughter and family to think about supporting through an NFL contract as soon as next year, and C) has to be a student as well, taking senior level courses (since he's a RS JR).  Even in easier majors, with the academic support the football team gets, it has to be a very stressful time.

And some brands are just plain better at tuning their Demo modes to suit store lighting, which is very often different than home lighting.

You just have to watch the prices, since sometimes they'll be a bit pricier for the same model than Best Buy or Amazon.

I will say this about 4K/UHD.  If you're buying a TV for this football season, don't worry about going 4K.  Get the best 1080P TV you can for your money and save up for the next generation of UHDs a few years down the road, since very important colorscale updates and picture quality enhancements are in the pipeline to consumer grade and priced TVs in just a few years.  I'd highly recommend LG's or Vizio's (if you want a decent picture for the money).  Samsungs, unless you can find one of their non Smart TVs, are a little pricey for the quality on the low end with the one exception being the Samsung 6350 series (An older model from last year, but still around at Wal-Marts and Targets, 60s start at $1400, maybe less if you price match it for an online source).  As far as Vizio's go, make sure you get the latest models for either the M or E series (the M this year is UHD, E is not).  The current E series will have a C3 after the main part of the model number, for example (Vizio E65-C3, the C2 or xC2 is a model with less dimmable backlight zones, which decreases picture quality to be similar to the previous model year).

Don't trust the guys at BB in Tuttle.  They flat out lied to me about multiple features I had already researched (for instance, they were pushing me towards no HDR 4K TVs, when I said specifically I was looking for a deal on HDR capable 4K tvs).

LG Electronics 60LF6100 from Amazon just under $900.  Not a bad deal for that size.  Also, a little higher than your price range, but this model line has very good picture for the money: Sony KDL70W850B 70-Inch from Amazon is just under $1900

Comment 02 Sep 2015

I think it would be hilarious to line up in a diamond pistol formation with JT, Braxton, and Gibson as the front three points, with Zeke behind, then motion from there.  Or maybe put in Cardale instead of Gibson, just to mess with their heads even more.

Comment 01 Sep 2015

Selig was also a huge jerk, of the first order.  My dad worked for the Reds on the groundcrew, then as the ground crew manager in the 80s, and the only person he disliked more than Marge Schott was Selig (who he had to deal with for the 1988 All Star Game).  All of the other celebrity types were reasonably tough to deal with (like helping place the mats for the Secret Service Snipers in the lights since H.W. Bush threw out the first pitch when he was still Vice President), but Selig was especially a jerk.

It'd be awesome if he does like Eddie George did and brings in chefs with a lot of different regional recipes (like the guy George's has weekdays when they'll do exotic meat burgers).  Have a chef for Memphis style BBQ, Missouri Style BBQ, and some Louisiana Cajun style BBQ.  One of the Assistant Scoutmasters in my troop was a Navy Chef, who worked with another Chef from Louisiana that had grown up in Memphis.  He makes the best ribs, BBQ pulled pork, and Chili.  Man we ate well for Boy Scouts.

Comment 26 Aug 2015

This is the year of the NCAA game problem.  Like when you recruit too many 5 star receivers, and have to turn on 20 minute quarters so you can sub in your entire 3rd string so they don't transfer.  #Buckeye_Problems

The Underestimate shirt would flow better if it was "You underestimate the power of the Buckeyes."  Same number of syllables as the original quote that way.

Comment 20 Aug 2015

Disney's licenses are probably a lot easier to get than Ohio State's

Comment 13 Aug 2015

I'm only with Verizon because with me buying the phones outright, and sharing with my parents and brother, it's only $35 a month to share 10GB (and I can use up to 5GB myself, my parents don't use much).

Comment 13 Aug 2015

If you have a low data plan (less than 6GB) on a More Everything, you are going to get a better deal with the new system (the off contract, or installment plan line access fee is $5 less than it used to be).  Plus, mid range phones that are almost as good as flagships are starting to come down in price.  I will seriously look at upgrading to the Moto X 2015 this year, since they gave it an SD card slot, and it starts at $399 outright.

Comment 13 Aug 2015

That's the way Cleveland wins the Superbowl.  12 Gauge at QB, Brax in the slot, TP out wide, EZE at tailback, Bosa wrecking people, Darron Lee flying all over the place.  Now the NFL just needs to award all 1st round draft picks to the Browns, like I do all the time in Madden.

For some strange reason, I thought that guys head was part of his arm in the picture at the top, then I realized, "It's not a tumor!"
