Lawns, tough subject for me now. As a new home owner (well we are in it but haven't closed yet) and the owner of a .5 acre in a complex that would never let me get away with a lawn I am at a crossroads. Living in Cali, it was cool to see people just put stones in and call it a day. But being now back in Ohio, grass is "free" growing as long as you don't feel the need to overdo it.

That being said, what are some of the best tips for keeping the lawn nice so without watering it 24/7 and spraying it with crazy stuff. I could run our toilets to a staging tank and then fertilize it every week... but I have a feeling my neighbors might hate me for it... and it sounds illegal.

Also, the article noted that Americans don't use them, I know that we do, but if we don't have them then Americans will certainly not use them anyway and have no escape from getting fatter. Further, what is the authors issue with Garages? They are one of the most functional rooms of a house!?

Great move on his part. Can't find a better need for a tall man, yet a place he can make a difference without having to be the star. He needs a few years he can contribute without hurting himself. Can't find a better place to do that than Miami.

Looks like James played a huge part in getting him in.

Please remember that logic the next time you go in and ask your Boss for a Raise. Because when they hired you, you knew what it was!!

Pure gold!

I'll just leave this right here from the Monday Skull Session:

I think Manziel winning the Heisman again sets a bad precedent for kids:

1) Get caught with fake ID and underage drinking, booked by police, no consequences, get the starting QB spot 1 month later.

2) Announce you are taking only online classes because you are too famous for campus.

3) Tweet you can't wait to leave your college.

4) Get caught underage drinking without any recourse (here, here, here, here, here (NSFW), etc ...) and even lying about it.

5) Get's booted from UT frat party for being underage.

6) What else am I missing?

In all that he has gone through, he has received ZERO verbal public reprimands, ZERO missed games, ZERO consequences. It's disappointing to se all this go on, him still receive public support, and other QB's who have done as much or more without any drama are hated more. Kid is either going to flame out (due to arrogance leading to bad decision making) or he is going to have to change his ways.

My issue is not his drinking, it is how he goes about it with no repercussions. Almost all of your examples lost playing time, Manziel has lost none...

Agreed!

For me it isn't that he is choosing to drink at age 20, I don't think that is really a big deal, in fact I assume almost all our football players are doing it. The issue really is that he is choosing to break the law in a VERY public way almost knowing without care that stuff will get out there for all to see. That to me shows poor decision making and lack of care for the impact of his actions on others.

Why does he choose to do it in a very public way without recourse yet ever other football player "has" to do it privately or will get some sort of punishment. To me, that level of arrogance and selfishness annoys the crap out of me and shows a double standard.

Even Women's basketball?

Just by the very fact they actually do something, yes.

Comment 23 Jul 2013

Agreed, you can take the man out of Ohio, but you can't take the Ohio out of the man.

Comment 22 Jul 2013

I'm neither ready to downplay the unfortunate events of today, nor go into panic mode and/or assume that they will have devastating consequences for the 2013 team.

That was my only point, I was trying to bring parity to the idea that OSU is not at all above a few players. In fact, a few players can be the difference between a NC run and winning season as seen in the past (because not every team is complete, a few choice players will equate to losses).

For example, if we all pretty much admitted that losing Braxton we go from a NC contender to a 2-3 loss team. I don't know why we wouldn't consider the los of Roby (potentially) as at least impactful.

Comment 22 Jul 2013

I then still don't get it, how can it not be a criticism? You are questioning why things are the way they are and the only one with that control is OSU head coach and AD.

Comment 22 Jul 2013

"Could be reinstated," sure I totally agree. But that could is a lot less likely for Hyde than Roby. Meyer takes a "guilty until proven innocent" approach to hitting women which puts Hyde at a "prove it didn't happen" disadvantage. I believe that wouldn't have made much of a difference given we are not a star RB focused offense. Roby on the other hand could very well only miss a handful of games, but again my point was only that it WILL make a difference, and saying it WILL be just fine and anyone who disagrees disappoints "me" is also assuming things they don't know. The tone of the original post was that "I'm disappointed" in anyone believing there will be any impact, we will be fine so don't worry. Someone THINKING we will be just fine is one thing, I didn't respond to any of those. I did respond, without condemnation, stating that it very likely could and here is an example.
