Back in the 330 myself for a week. Sat outside for a group get together last night - still trying to reconstitute myself, having melted into a big pool of sweaty goo.
I long for the times when our school and its teams were relevant. Kinda like Purdue.
Good research, AZ!!
All good points. Also fair to mention that their return to a measure of relevance really started in 2004 with Dantonio, and then continued with Brian Kelly. They've had a recent string of pretty decent hires.
I have to respectfully disagree.
As others mention, he's definitely being counseled on this finer point by at least two people who have probably faced this situation and seen the imbalance. I don't completely understand all of the economics, but what I do know is that this offset stuff doesn't get mentioned a lot, because maybe some of the higher draft picks in particular don't see the long con in the setup that definitely benefits the owner.
I think the two sides will get this worked out before camp. Watch. I'm sure Bosa's very eager to get after it, and I think he's in the right. He also is letting it be known that he's going to not get run over in future contract negotiations, which I think is pretty savvy in that business - the owners are a bunch of sharks.
Any Tombstone reference is good for an UV at any time!
Hmm. It's disturbing to think that Schiano never said anything, but I guess whether he did or didn't will definitely have to be answered.
I like this so much I don't even know what to say! It sure would be good if JK is able to work some crootin' influence on Okudah and Akers.
That gap with Stanford would've been closed considerably with a higher men's basketball result. Still, this is the highest finish I can recall for our beloved university . AWESOME.
If we looked at $/minute of playing time, Oden was still paid more than Conley will be...
I watched him play HS football AND basketball, and while he wasn't nearly the same caliber player on the hardwoods as he was on the gridiron, he overcame his lack of natural hoops skills with sheer hustle. Every time he dove for a ball, set a hard pick, or ran a play away from the ball, I'd just go, "Wow, it really is no accident that he's such a great football player".
Another player I watched, Todd Blackledge, was exactly the opposite. Never thought much of him as a football player, but man, could that dude shoot the lights out of the gym. I was surprised that he actually went to Penn State (and actually succeeded) until I heard who his dad was, and even more surprised that he got a shot (albeit a brief one) with the Chiefs.
"If you were trying to break in a new quarterback and a new center, you probably have no shot," Meyer said this spring. "The fact that these two guys are back, we have a shot. I think we have a decent shot of being good on offense, and it's mostly due to those two guys coming back."
Does this cause anyone but me to go, "Hmmm. That's what we're going to have next year, then"?
It fortunately isn't all doom and gloom, Chief. You know already, I'm sure, how important it is to know your kids' friends, because they will influence where the kids will go, what they do when they get there, and also through their own social network, who else will be there. Teach them to respect themselves and others, emphasize the importance of critical thought, and be consistent and constant, and it will all be good. Not saying I had the perfect formula, was a perfect dad, or had perfect kids - none are absolutes. However, they listened and therefore minimized their risks when they did make bad decisions. That's about the best you can hope. Good luck!
Agreed. "My child would never do something like this" is something that we hear far, far too often nowadays, and this doesn't apply to only sexual assaults cases - it's everywhere. When my kids would come to me with an issue (or they had gotten into trouble of some sort, usually minor), my first question was always, "What did you do?" The point of emphasis isn't either on individual accountability or critical thinking anymore, sadly.
I always told my daughter, who is now a married wife, mother, and stepmother to two boys who sorely needed a good one, when she was growing up that she should do certain things to protect herself when she was in the company of those she didn't know: don't accept a drink that you didn't see poured; don't share a drink with someone you don't know; pair up with someone so they can bail you out or so that they have someone to bail them out; don't overindulge; have a way out. In short, don't let your guard down or let someone take it down. Thankfully she took the advice and never got herself into a bad situation.
This in no way puts any of the blame for what happened to this girl on her: none whatsoever. Young people with altered minds will continue to make bad decisions as long as there are young people and mind-altering substances. I wish someone would have given this stupid young man that same advice and I definitely wish someone would have taught him a few lessons on appropriate behavior toward women and personal accountability - same as I did for my two boys.
I like UFM's record as an underdog.
Yep. Having an Ohio State alumnus and SEAL come in and talk about these principles is just awesome, as is the commitment to recognize and honor veterans and their families.
The other thing I thought as I read this (and maybe it was mentioned by the SEAL but not recounted here) is another SEAL slogan, especially from their BUD/S training days, and that is "The only easy day was yesterday", something that I know Urbz would love for all of the kids to take away. Not just as a football ethos necessarily, but as a life tool.
Divorce is one of the single largest wealth transfer mechanisms, if not the largest, in the history of mankind. Celebrate your time together, be good to one another, and don't bow to pressure from anyone to get married for the wrong reasons. You're both smart people, that's obvious. Be cool and keep it easy.
And an asterisk for Noah Spence, 8th pick in the second round.
Yes, please and thanks.
In my opinion as a resident, outside of Columbus (obvii), San Diego is the best city in the country!
Glad to see another Buckeye coming to my town! WELCOME TO SD, BIG BEAR!!
And you know this how, exactly? Just curious - not trying to agitate.
...get them in a WHOLE MESS of trouble. Be smart, guys - hire good financial advisers and stay out of trouble!
