This is interesting.  About once (probably more around here) a year somebody talks about the best college football team playing the worst NFL team.  It usually ends with the majority of people talking about how even the worst NFL team is an all-star team of college players and that the Ohio State's and Alabama's of the world still wouldn't have a chance.  I understand this and am not arguing it.  BUT,  UCONN and the WNBA.  What do you think? How would the UCONN women's basketball team fair against the worst WNBA team?  I'm not so sure how the worst WNBA team would fair...

As a father, I just can't imagine what Will Sr is going through.  Any time a parent has to bury a child is just unreal to me.  He says he forgives but will never forget.  Wow.  This soon after a tragedy and already speaking of forgiveness.  It's hard enough when someone you know hurts you and its just based on words; let alone dealing with a stranger that murdered your son.  I feel like I understand forgiveness but that my friends, is on another level.

He's saying that typically teams don't but the good ones do.  I don't see how that is having it both ways.  He distinguished between his opinion of good and bad.

True Story and to be honest, I have no idea if this was actually the law or what the law currently is because this happened years ago.

In any case, I was riding along with a friend home from Columbus and he got pulled over in a small town (can't remember the name) by the local cop.  Cop says and I quote, "Son, did you know that in the state of Ohio it is illegal to enter an intersection on a yellow light?".  No other cars around, gave my friend a written warning.  So... who knows.

I'll agree that our offense should have been much better.  I think some of it had to do with Cardale and some had to do with coaching.  There were times early on that JT didn't look great either.  The offense definitely didn't reach the high expectations that I had but maybe they were too high to begin with.  I do appreciate what Cardale did in 2014 though and will never forget that amazing season.

I tend to agree with you on this as well.  There are just so many variables in play that it really makes it next to impossible to come up with what might be considered a fair system.  Now I know that it doesn't add up to the millions that are made even if you divide it by every athlete but between the healthcare, nutrition, fitness, stipends and any other perk these guys receive, I'm guessing it adds up to a significant amount more than just the education.  How much would it cost me per month to hire Marotti as a personal trainer for 7 days a week?

Have any of you had any experience with the "original pit barrel cooker"?  I have a Kamado Joe myself and was baffled at the simplicity.  In any case, I was at my cousin's for a weekend and he cooked a pork butt in this thing and it was, I kid you not, some of the best I've had.  The company recommends using kingsford charcoal and you don't have to monitor the temp.  I watched the cook and it is literally set it and forget it.  Just follow the directions... crazy.  You hang the meat from the top down into the barrel.  Even with my ceramic, I'm considering purchasing one to supplement.

Apparently, the first commercial sale using the "barcode" was in Ohio! I guess it fits!

Thanks for the update! I always enjoy seeing how the site changes.  What would it take or how hard would it be to implement a sort by date function to search results?  I know nothing about the function and creation of websites.
