In 2014 the National Hotdog and Sausage Council reported $2.4 Billion in sales! I'll take mine with chili, cheese, onions, mustard, ketchup, and jalapeños. I am definitely a supporter to entrepreneurs across this nation selling these delightful morsels.  A pox on those not supporting local hotdog business endeavors!!

12:26 Saturday afternoon and I just put a pork shoulder on low and slow for Sunday dinner.  Will be serving it with baked beans and coleslaw for the Sunday family gathering.

Three Michigan women decide to go camping. They drive to a state park and set up their campsite.  After an hour or two they decide to go fishing in the nearby river.  They spend most of the afternoon fishing in the river but nothing is biting. Along comes a park ranger and asks to see their licenses. Each one produces the required document and then the park ranger asks if they have had any luck.  They all answer no.  The ranger decides to see what they are using for bait. He asks each of them to reel in their lines so he can check.  On each of the lines he discovers a magnet.  Puzzled he asks the women if they know what they are doing.  They all answer yes.  The ranger leaves shaking his head puzzled by their responses.  One of the ladies hits the one next to her and says "what a dumb ranger he was, doesn't he know there are steelhead in these waters."

I enjoyed watching him play at The Ohio State University and for the New England Patriots. Great player, coach, and person. I will miss you coach. I wish all the best to you and your family. Go Bucks!

Fantastic! The arsenal is building for the cold war with the north...

Can't travel that much anymore (way too much metal parts) get hassled in airports and driving more than 4 hours just gets downright painful. I love my couch with the TV tables full of food/snacks and the cooler with a cushion on top to rest my feet. Great way to watch the Buckeyes.

I like the thought of having multiple backs like Alabama does. They got the run game going and it opened  up the passing game especially play action. A good rotation of the backs in long offensive drives keeps fresh legs in the game especially late in the game.  It does also provides contingency plans for injuries. Maybe a lot more two back formations in the future?  I am glad of one thing and that is I don't have to make the decisions on this issue. Whew! Got enough stress this year just being a fan with the OT games.

One thing is for sure the team had some of the best Seniors this year to see what can be done with determination and spirit. The under classmen really saw the leadership and poise from them and contributed to send them all out winners. I truly believe this will carry over in the coming years. We have good shots at both `13 and 14 becuase 12 will be fresh in their minds.

The Football Hall of Fame uses sports media personnel to vote. Traditionally there have been a lack of representation at the defensive player level, WR, defensive backs, linebackers, special teams, and punters.  It is ironic Ray Guy has a college award named after him, arguably one of the best punters to play the game, and yet is not in the Hall of Fame. Like KMP10 said if you are not in the mind of the sports media people you will not get in.  Sorry process if you ask me and it has been critized over the years for this.

Damn shame it happened to him. I hope he does all the exercises his therapists give him. I had a knee replaced and the exercises are really important to his recovery. You have to do them so your muscles build up the memory and you don't favor one side over the other. Good luck DeVier.

If they lose they could always blame it on hanging Chud

I have extreme faith in our coaches and their recruiting abilities.  I see another stellar class with the way they are hitting the road and making contacts. I am sure Coach Meyer will get this class up there and again be a top recruiting class.  Man that guy has energy and I am excited about the future of the program.

Well I have to agree with this article. When I enlisted in the Air Force way back when dinosaurs roamed the plains we had to keep a money list of our cash by serial number. You got dinged if your list wasn't up to date. The Drill Instructors would be sure to be outside the door of a facility and if you went in and spent some money they would check your list against what was in your wallet as soon as you came out.

It was a teaching tool and no more. It taught us to be mindful of what we had on us and what we were spending money on.  I got dinged really hard because I had a $100 bill and bought something minor and didn't finish updating my list.  I think I received one demerit for every mistake. Yes it was my choice to enlist in the military just like it is their choice to come to Ohio State. 

They are trying to do like what my DI put into my head years ago. Is it a want or a need you are spending money on?  Needs come first and then if you have any extra you can put it towards a want. Some people spend money on the wants and tend to forget the needs like rent, insurance, etc. and then wind up behind the power curve.

Fantastic breakdown as usual Ross. Going to be a interesting season next year. Like you I agree we should keep the balance of play action and sprint outs. I see Braxton as only becoming stronger with working on his mechanics making him more dangerous and harder to defend.
