I think any post in the recruiting forum should automatically have this message pop up and ask the user if s/he still wants to post the topic.

Comment 27 Jul 2014

You didn't question me about one thing I expected to be provocative -- namely, why would I rather have a top recruit go to our rival OSU instead of our other rival MSU?

I have started assuming that Michigan is working to beat Kentucky for recruits.

In the 2007 Annual report, it discusses Professor "Slip" Slider, who majored in petroleum engineering at The Ohio State University. He later taught Petroleum Engineering classes at The Ohio State University. The caption indicates that the program has been combined with the CBE program.

It is hard to know this without a good deal of insider information.

Comment 26 Jul 2014

Ohio State had a Petroleum Engineering within the Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering (CBE) program, but low enrollment has meant no faculty currently teach these courses. Recent discussions may change this. The core CBE curriculum would only need a short series of courses to revitalize this program.

Joey Bosa came into the stands last night to sit next to a family member (looked just like Bosa in the face). He took a picture with a little kid before sitting down. Some random fan turned to take his picture and Bosa had the good humor to pose for the fan, giving a "We're #1" salute. Joey Bosa looks absolutely beast-like.

Comment 25 Jul 2014

Coach Tom Herman was particularly funny tonight. He was calling pass interference during the 1 on 1 matchups. One pass interference was so physical that Coach Herman threw everything that he was holding (like it was a penalty flag) and then threw his shirt and the shirt that he was wearing underneath that one.

Comment 25 Jul 2014

All that I keep thinking is that I grew up in a very different way than most people who condone yelling and cursing at kids (defined as anyone 10 years younger than you). I understand that some people think that this is the only way to instill discipline, but I know that it is not.

Comment 25 Jul 2014

If you read the report, he wasn't fired for yelling or cursing. Waters claimed during the investigation that he had never yelled at or used profane language when addressing a student. This tape recording proves that he lied during the investigation.

Wouldn't it be awesome if the next jacket owner went through a similar weight loss transformation and had to sell the coats next year? Brotherhood of the Weight Loss Pants Coats?

Comment 24 Jul 2014

The most telling aspect of the article was:

The Americans might have invented the world’s best methods for teaching math to children, but it was difficult to find anyone actually using them. 

We have to do a better job teaching teachers how to teach!!

Re: 2.

Can someone comment on the effect of 100,000 cell phone users in a stadium-sized area attempting to simultaneously use phone/data/etc? Is there sufficient bandwidth (given that there are probably four different cell phone companies people use) to handle the massive amount of data? Not an EE, but curious nonetheless.

Alabama (Roll Tide) OOC Schedule

West Virginia

Florida Atlantic

Southern Miss

Western Carolina

Please identify the "power" team that Alabama (Roll Tide) plays.

Comment 21 Jul 2014

I took the quote as saying, "I [Coach Dantonio] owe a lot of thanks to Coach Tressel for teaching me how to operate a program so that I could be successful at Michigan State."

I don't think this is a slight at all.

Comment 20 Jul 2014

A reminder for people that they can support 11W through buying items from the dry goods store or shopping at Amazon using the links at the bottom of the page.

My household's shopping habits have surely netted 11W at least 10 cents from the Amazon link.

Comment 19 Jul 2014

From people outside of Kentucky, the draw of the hometown team is somewhat baffling. Why UK? My previous comment was trying to emphasize that inside the state borders UK is king. People in Kentucky don't recognize sports and other things outside of the state. My high school in Louisville sent students predominantly (estimate ~80%) to three schools (UK ~ 50%, U of L 20%, and Bellarmine 10%).

Comment 19 Jul 2014

To be honest, Louisville always has a really strong tradition with college quarterbacks (Chris Redmon, Teddy Bridgewater, Johnny Unitas, Brian Brohm, Jeff Brohm). I don't closely follow U of L sports currently, but I imagine that Coach Petrino will have a solid offense. The issue will be defense. Coach Strong turned a traditional weakness at U of L into a  strength (relative to the past) the last two years.

Comment 19 Jul 2014

Only people living in Louisville root for U of L. Most people in the state root for Kentucky. This is mainly because of the strong basketball tradition at UK. Even the city of Louisville has many UK supporters. So, it is not surprising to me that Damien Harris is actually a UK fan. Most people in the state of Kentucky do not appreciate that greater opportunities (scholastic and otherwise) exist outside the border.
