Skyline is vomit...that is all I have to say about this issue.

Younger Buckeye may not remember a 2002 commit name Drushawn Humphrey from Toledo, died his senior year of high school playing a Bball game. Tressel gave his mother a NC ring after the beating the Canes in the Fiesta.

I swear there is a moment at the end of the NC game where Herbie got real quiet and Fowler had too take over and talk a lot. I swear I could hear sniffling as if Herbie was crying tears of joy. Anyone else notice that?

What a nice thing it would be though, if Harbaugh was out recruited by our Lacrosse coach.

Yeah we need to legalize marijuana but not they way they suggested--creating a cartel. This is following the precedent set by the casinos where we enshrined in the constitution that a few had a special right that others did not--to run casinos. We shouldn't use the Ohio constitution to grant special rights.

Good point.

CP and OSU inc. ( this is my name for the university brass who want to replace true Buckeyes culture with a corporate vision--I am actually thinking about taking UM's thing and calling them 'Ohio') used the tragic Stephanie Hunter disappearance and murder as a PR ploy to put their plan into action. She was abducted on Pearl Alley South of 10th. They used her to make it out like South Campus--which was WAY more popular than some here want to admit, WAY more than today's Gateway which is darn right dead in comparison--was exceedingly dangerous due to the establishments there. That was obvious manipulation of a tragedy; the murderer could had picked anyone up anywhere. They made a huge stink out of that.

But when Brian Schaffer disappeared from the butt Ugly Tuna did we hear the same outrage about the Gateway? No we didn't. That indicates what interest is behind this, and how the Hunter outraged was purely manufactured for effect. (I am not big on conspiracy theories, but there is speculation that the Schaffer affair was covered up, since cameras show him entering the butt ugly tuna and not ever coming out. Covered up to protect interest and not have the Hunter affair come back and bite them. It's out there I admit.) 

Nevertheless, this has always been more about a corporate power grab than about what students want.

Funny logic there. You never heard the students who grew up with it complain suggests that the ones that remember what came before did. Therefor the old scene was much better.

There is a difference between not complaining and flat out loving it. When I talk to students today and describe what came before their eyes light up; they wish they were here back them! They say things like " We so missed out," and how " Everything is such a police state anymore." And how they wish to support local more independent business than large chains. 

They ey may not complain but they don't flat out love it. That is a loss; their experience is less than they ones that came before, and they know it.

What it looked like before the prefab diarrhea that spewed from the corporate sphincter poured forth. Organic, historic, character: not the boring, bland, suburban mall which the corny powers that be dig out of their arse, stamp with the corporate logo.

Right on! Blueberry imbedded though, not globed on top in a disgusting sauce. And hot coffee with a side of sausage. Damn. I am going to go to Barnstomer's at the tOSU airport in the morning--owned by Jack and Bennies. I am hungry now! 

Comment 21 Feb 2015

I am thinking the sequel to the 2014 National Championship will be better--although it has a high bar to cross. But I think the director and cast are just right to do it! 

Comment 21 Feb 2015

Yes. The three QB competition and story is going to be PR gold. The sports media will be heavily focused on Columbus this offseason; fans from every program in America will want to know every plot line of this incredible story. The shine this will give to the Ohio State brand and the intrinsic value it will profit the program will be high. It is a great time to be a Buckeye.

I don't have a caption, but I do have an observation that may help get the creative juices going.

it looks like they are about to make-out. Too much gleam in their eyes. 

Comment 19 Feb 2015

1.) Genesis--Worse

2.) Van Halen-- Worse ( but still good.) 

3.) no opinion

4.) no opinion

5.) AC/DC--better, by an edge.

6.) Pink Floyd--I am calling foul here as Rogar Walters sung a lot of songs too before he left. My three deep here is Walters/Gilmore/Barrett.

7.)Sabbath-- Worse all the way through.

8.) No opinion

9) Steve Perry over the rest

10) Queen--Are you shite-zing me? No contest, no need to say, obvious.

11)A&C---See above

12) They all sang different types of songs so it is apples and oranges here, although I love Stevie Nicks witchy voice.

The Hotel could and should had called the guy and said: "I am sorry, we can't keep the homeless people here since they are without ID--we would love too, but we are under huge legal pressure concerning legit usage of our rooms. We would love to come up with a compromise here. We can either refund your money to your card, or we can call a cab, locate a shelter and insure the couple finds warmth, food, and help there and refund you the difference. It is not that we don't care.
