I do not know a lot about Tim Beck but Ohio State will always get better recruits than Nebraska. It starts there, so he will instantly have more to work with than he did at Nebraska.

I also got the bourbon, cinnamon, and vanilla beans today. I just need to get the apples.

Since this will be a gift for someone, I think I'm going to pour the bourbon into a large mouth glass container I have so I will not have to worry about the displaced bourbon. After it's done, i can easily take out the apples and funnel the bourbon back into its original bottle. Can't wait!

Thanks Ramzy!!

Thank you so much for posting this. We all get so busy just trying to live our lives that we often take for granted the things that we should hold most valuable. My prayer to this young man and hoping for a miracle that his baby survives. 

*edit - I just found the story and the baby did not survive. So heartbreaking.

Happy Birthday! Let's hope for an even better night.

B - I want them to know where it came from and also believe there is power in simplicity.

I have to agree with you on the Dube. Been there a couple times and their menu is huge. Very good food at a reasonable price.

Lady Buckeye here. Most of us just don't post much. ;-)

That is child abuse, plain and simple. He drew blood on that child! AP called it a "whoopin" I would call that a lashing. There is nothing a 4 year old child could do that would deserve something like that.

Prayers out to you. You absolutely did the right thing in seeking help rather than suffer in silence. Major props and respect to you.

Comment 14 Aug 2014

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've had to do this a couple times myself and it is truly one of the hardest things you'll ever have to do. Some people may question if it's worth it as they grieve for the loss of their beloved pet. My answer is always yes. The amount of joy they bring you everyday will live on forever. Keep in mind always the great memories.

Actually at the time he tweeted about not coming to play school, he had a 3.0 GPA. It just got lost during the firestorm of that tweet. I really think he was just having one of those stressful moments and that tweet was just a horrible lapse in judgement that will live on and on.

While I agree with some of your points Arizona. I must respectfully disagree with a couple as well. 

I was born in Arkansas and most of my family still lives there. I've lived here well over 30 years now. You said "they still call anybody up north Yankees." They might, but do you realize how many times I see the words "hillbillies" "rednecks" and "ignorant" when referring to people from the south? Truth be told, I've actually met more "hillbillies" up north than I ever have down south. There are intelligent well educated people all over,  just as there are ignorant hillbillies. It is not a matter of your geographic location.

I will own up to it. I was pissed off the WAY he left. I felt like he slapped the fans in the face with the "decision"

After reading his letter today, I was actually moved. I think it was heartfelt and sincere. His return is good for Cleveland sports and for the local economy. That's what I care most about. 

Comment 05 Jul 2014

Pretty sure he will be off the team if all this is true. I find it really sad and feeling sorry for the kid. He had an older brother that was shot and killed. I thought he was working hard not to fall into the same traps.

He actually mentored one of my co-workers sons while he was still in H.S and by all standards seemed like a really good kid. I pray he is able to get his life together and find some sort of peace.

Comment 29 Jun 2014

Yes, he told me he was parked on 2nd and Dennison if I remember correctly. He called the city to make sure it wasn't towed but they did not. I was surprised as well everything I hear is that is a good area.

Comment 29 Jun 2014

On a less than pleasant note, he got his car stolen while he was at work. It was stolen from Victorian village. The car was less than a year old but it's not like it was a high end vehicle. It's a Kia Soul for Gods sake!

My son is working Comfest. He's a pedicab guy (working thru college) his report so far on the topless girls are "no, none you actually want to see." Lol

Comment 21 Jun 2014

I'm sorry woodshed, but I do not agree with you at all. These folks all have day jobs or are students. Between keeping us fans up to date and working they are probably putting in 15 to 16 hrs per day. 

I know at the end of my 10 hr day the last thing I want to do is come home and have to do research and put in another whole shift. (free of charge I might add). All I want to do is come home, relax and catch up on what's going on with tOSU and they do that for us! Again free of charge. 

Thank you 11Warriors

Just to give a little insight (hopefully) on why employers force people to use IE.

I work for a huge healthcare system in the IT dept and can tell you they still use IE and that is their "standard". Some of the reasons are that there are something like 40,000 computers in our environment and thru the years there have been thousands of applications written that were specifically written to work with IE. 

It's just not that easy to change browsers when you have to test said applications to make sure every single one of them work with that new browser. This applies to both In house applications as well as vendor applications. Sometimes it's like pulling teeth to get a vendor to make even the smallest changes like an active x control or even a java setting. 

In our case, it would be a very costly undertaking in terms of both money and man power. Money they feel is better spent on other things. 



Comment 05 May 2014

Totally agree. I don't care personally if they smoke weed or not but if you know you'll be tested. 

I remember when one of our guys did the same thing. Mike Adams was it?  Was very disappointed.

whatever it is you guys have done, the site and specifically the scrolling on the IPad seems to be much more responsive. Thanks so much!
