I think the coaching staff probably knows what they're doing tbh

Interestingly enough, more than 50% of the Basil Hayden drinking demographic is women. Which makes it the only bourbon in the world with more than a 50% female demographic (as far as I can tell). Not that it's a bad choice, it's definitely one of the lighter choices you can start with. 

I like these "new to bourbon" paths that I push my poor college kid friends along:

  • Bulleit->WT 101->Old Grand-dad 114 (increasing proof, increasing complexity)
  • Buffalo Trace->Maker's Mark/Four Roses Small->Elijah Craig 12/Angels Envy (sort of a smoother path)

Barrett. At least at face value he spreads the ball around. If I'm a deep threat, I want Jones, but everyone running short/medium routes would probably prefer to touch the ball.

i assume it was probably to pick up Joey for Easter, but good news nonetheless!

Well class starts back Monday and it's a long way back to Florida, so it was definitely a planned visit.

Largely last year Roby's faults were due to how he was used in the scheme. In the Ash scheme I think he would have been a killer.

Tim has been on the OSU beat since the dawn of time. He knows his stuff, he just has an...interesting personality.

Have their coaches post highlight packages on YouTube, that's the first step. Coaches usually don't evaluate without some tape. If they're special, the media will catch on as well.

I'm a college student at OSU and our local whisky selection isn't exactly ideal, I even went as far as to make a tracker on my website over the summer of contract liquor stores for when I'm out and about around the state.

I haven't had anything crazy special as a result of the lack of supply, but I'm a big fan of Evan Williams Single Barrel, Four Roses Single Barrel, Old-Granddad 114, and EC12 (all of which are commonplace). I've been looking for the Makers Cask Strength as well as ECBP, to no avail. We have a bottle of Weller 12 but I find it to be nothing special taste wise.

/r/bourbon is doing a release of a single barrel High West (Double Rye w/Campfire aging) that I'll be getting shortly as well, so that'll be my first true prize.

So if it were Rivals, Scout, 247, or The Ozone that would make it legitimate right?

BR has a history of having shitty contributors (because they don't really pay their "contributors"), but Ben Axelrod is a good writer (and definitely has...personality as far as beat writers go). He wrote for BSB, Scout, Rivals, and The Ozone. It's not some random fan off the streets. The piece is well written and makes good points, don't write it off just because of the publishing platform. BR is owned by Turner Sports and has made some serious hires as of late. Look at the author before you attack the credibility of the piece.

 his first full season focusing only on defense

Ummm, I'm not sure what you're talking about. He spent his entire redshirt year (last year) playing LB and bulking up from his QB/WR frame from high school, so he was only focusing on defense. Prior to that, he earned his offer as a S/LB and has stuck there since he got to campus and has gained weight and muscle tremendously.
