I think given that he posted that comment in the thread he created regarding game chats/threads, it was framed pretty well and had more than enough context.

This seems like a pretty big win for the NCAA to me.  It puts limits on their rules, but also appears to preserve their amateurism model pretty well.

No, that should stay as it is determined to be covering the full cost of attendance, which was upheld.  The "up to $5000 per year"  that was in deferred compensation for use of likeness, image, and/or name was the part that was under an injunction prior to being struck down by this ruling.

Now this first SLIIIDE... shows a very, very interesting thing: our main building. On slide... TWO! We see other view... of... IT! Oh, my God, you wouldn't believe it!

Was just about to post this.  Glad someone else knows the OSU yell is alive and well.

I've really liked it so far except for two somewhat major things that had to be tweaked right when I installed it.  

1. Windows 10 seems to assume you have a pretty high end machine.  I "only" have 4G of ram on my laptop, and things were slowing way down and some programs were even failing if they had to use a lot of virtual memory.  I found out Windows 10 had switched to windows managing my paging file and shrunk it to <1G.  Easy fix, but annoying, especially if you don't know anything about this sort of thing.

2. On my new desktop, Windows 10 decided to make a virtual desktop as my main display after installation.  Which meant on startup, I had a black screen because my correct display wasn't enabled. After signing in blind and tinkering with a second display and trying a few different things, I've got the correct displays enabled and everything has been fine since.

I like it, definitely a good compromise imho between 7 and 8, and while I still don't use it much, Edge is lightning fast and a huge upgrade from IE.

I have to admit, having listened to this multiple times at the beginning of every season since 2003 when I first heard it, I knew exactly what this was from the forum title.  :)

Anyone having an issue with ESPN channels not coming in with Time Warner?

So, on our most famous and celebrated play last year, Zeke didn't see any holes and just decided to plow ahead (according to his interview in the E:60 piece) and Spencer, who made the key block(s), wasn't even supposed to be on that side of the field...  Amazing!  Can't help but laugh at that.

Spinach and kale salad with baked chicken breasts and balsamic dressing.  I try to plan and bring a healthy lunch, but there's a healthy-ish place called Tastebuds that's open for lunch really close to my office in Cleveland, so I have that as a decent fallback.

Why do you think you are entitled to any of this?  Especially anything above and beyond what you are already getting?  I would guess anyone donating for anything other than saying thank you to a site they love to be a part of is in a very small minority.  Give if you want to, don't if you don't or can't.  Either way, the same site you've been enjoying for however long will still be here (actually it'll probably be even better than it was/would've been).
