They might be letting him practice just to keep him in a structured situation, and for all we know, the B1G HQ knows about it, and is saying that he can't play, but practice is ok to help the student athlete in a substance abuse kind of situation.

The binturong of Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia) is also called the bearcat (and is the basis of the mascot, after the fact apparently).  Also, in its Latin name, Arctictis binturong, Arctictis means bear-weasel.  So this year we get to play the bear-weasels and the skunk weasels at home.

Especially if they got TBDBITL to play at the game for all scoring plays, and did Script Ohio, the Ramp Entrance, and a halftime show.  I'd pay for it even if it meant Mike Brown made money off of it.

A lot of their stuff has always been pretty bad.  I'm pretty sure I remember them producing a Rapistburger T-shirt before they got a cease and desist from Big Ben's attorneys, back when that was going down.

Comment 15 Sep 2014

Roby was getting killed most of that first game against the Colts (yeah, putting a future Hall of Famer against a rookie usually works out), but came up clutch in those two situations.  And Carlos Hyde, man, that OL for San Francisco didn't do much that was good during that game.  They got manhandled by the Bears DL, and couldn't get any run blocking going at all.

On the horse tails and manes... It's gotta be a rogue orchestra that needs more bowstrings.

Comment 12 Sep 2014

Is there a lot to understand about this case? It's pretty obvious the Inquisition got a scapegoat and used it to save the Inquisitors' collective jobs.  Then, because it looks like the Inquisition has accomplished a good thing, they get a letter telling them they are good dogs again.  Even though the entire mess was created because the university gave up its responsibility in loco parentis, and obeyed the laws designed to grant adult students freedom from meddling parents.

"But he had to go because that way me and all my coworkers could keep our jobs even though we don't help get donations and inspire Buckeyes everywhere.  If he hadn't been fired, we could have had our budgets cut or even had to justify our existence."

-Random OSU Title IX administrator.

This just proves what I thought all along.  Waters was thrown under the bus by the Committee on Public Safety at OSU because multiple entities didn't like him and saw an opportunity to both enhance their departments and in the case of the OSU police, Compliance, and Title IX offices, make sure someone else took the fall.  If I decide to donate to the University again, I'll specify that it cannot be used for any administrative tasks, only scholarship funding.

And regarding the sports media, I generally ignore it. Even though, yes, the B1G sucks right now, the media doesn't want to examine the seedy side of why other conferences do so much better on the field, because it would piss off their fans, and SEC fans with pitchforks are a whole lot more angry and loud than B1G fans (I think it's got something to do with mid-western values and learning to turn the other cheek).  Plus, when the biggest sports media outlets are in direct competition with the BTN, they have every incentive to try and destroy the BTN so that they can acquire media rights to the Big Ten's games.

Comment 09 Sep 2014

I agree with DJ, cry havoc and let slip the bagmen of war!!! Plus, can't Delany send some his goon squad to the SEC and PAC 12, and break some kneecaps among their bagmen?  I mean, we could at least take them out of commission for a few weeks during the season.

Comment 08 Sep 2014

Shady Buck, if you want to do something less "interesting" (as in the Chinese curse) for a sign, you could do a Fist = 2, and then a "Buckeye Leaf" = 16, to compare and contrast the NFL's treatment of Josh Gordon as compared to Rice.

Comment 29 Aug 2014

To be fair to Bo, maybe his brother's poor experiences as a result of his drug use are the most important factor informing his views on drugs.

Comment 20 Aug 2014

Who all are Aero or Mechanical Engineers (or even Electrical and Comp Sci) on this site?  We could put together Buckeye Drones, and create the super drone for tOSU to use.  Call it Brutus.

Comment 19 Aug 2014

He's one of those players I was disappointed didn't end up on the Bengals for Marvin Lewis to ruin him.

Comment 18 Aug 2014

With the sole exception of having a local bookstore (SBX is the one that did it for a couple of my professors) print them out and sell them for a very marginal profit (those professors didn't want us spending all our money on the texts they didn't like, so they put some together and told SBX they weren't allowed to charge over $70 for it, plus it's been a great reference book).

Comment 15 Aug 2014

"I was hoping to hear about all the ways Nick Saban was using children's blood to fuel the Alabama DeathStar. "  Classic, although are you sure Bama doesn't have a Space Vacuum instead?  I mean, Saban's a little short to be either Palpatine or Vader, Dark Helmet is closer to the mark.

Comment 13 Aug 2014

It's really looking like the Title IX office and Compliance needed someone fired to save their own jobs (because tOSU got put on the Department of Education's s*** list), and managed to scrape up just enough, and write it in such a way that Drake had no choice but to fire Waters when confronted with that report (plus, it helps him get in good with the Music Department, who never liked Waters in the first place).  I can't say that I blame Drake for this, considering all of the players involved worked for tOSU before he arrived.  It would've been bad for him if he rejected the report outright, because initially at a new job, you do have to have some trust of your subordinates and their integrity.

Comment 11 Aug 2014

I think it's because they're scared.  Nippert, due to its construction and the fact it's completely surrounded by taller buildings is really really loud.  It can be as loud as I've ever heard the Shoe on game day.  And Bama is scared of a sub optimal outcome (although 99/100 times I'm picking Bama to beat Cincy).
