According to the numbers in that article:

Revenue of all of collegiate sports (2012): 10.6B
Combined yearly "FMV" of football and basketball players in college according to this report: ~18.6B
(68k football players * 178k/yr) + (17.5k basketball players * 375k/yr)

Average D1 School football revenue: 15.8M
Yearly "FMV" of 85 scholarship players: 15.13M

If you think those numbers make sense, more "playing school" might be needed.  I also tend to agree with Dave above, the "fair market value" of what they are already getting is vastly undervalued.

No TMBG fans?

"Son I am able," she said "though you scare me."
"Watch," said I
"Beloved," I said "watch me scare you though." said she,
"Able am I, Son."

(word-unit palindrome for the haters)

"Cheer for" maybe too strong a sentiment.  I would say that in general, I prefer that B1G teams beat non-B1G teams, but I don't actively cheer for them.  My OSU fandom typically trumps any schadenfreude, regardless of how delicious it might be.  The exception comes to championships.  I was actively cheering against TTUN last April.

As awful as it is being a Cleveland Browns fan, attendance isn't really a concern.  We're gluttons for punishment I suppose.  Still would love to have Hyde playing in Cleveland.

Comment 10 Mar 2014

Man I miss this place.  Worked there my last couple years at OSU and the pizza and subs ruined most others for me.

Comment 08 Mar 2014

Hahahaha, that's what goes through my head every time I think of Ted!  And yeah, I'm a big Eliza Coupe fan and I too still liked season 9 of Scrubs, definitely like a spin-off.

Comment 07 Mar 2014

Wow, so many great ones to choose from.  Let's see if I can put up a list of great ones that no one has mentioned...

Teddy Buckland - Scrubs

Phil and Lem - Better off Ted

Jane Kerkovich-Williams - Happy Endings

Alan Shore - Boston Legal

Josh Lyman - West Wing

Honorable Mention - Moss - IT Crowd

Strain = torn muscle or tendon
Sprain = torn ligament

Surgery is rare regardless of the severity of an MCL sprain.  My guess is that it was done to strengthen and protect the MCL so that 1. complete recovery is faster and 2. he can start rehab/conditioning sooner.

Coincidentally, I was at a wet lab testing a new instrument for ACL repair on Tuesday.  Nice plug for the Flip Cutter there. This leaves out a lot of stuff though it's a good primer on the ligaments.  If you can stomach it, watch some of the real videos that come up as related to this one when it's over.  Pretty cool stuff.

Wow so many good games and memories in this thread.

My top NES titles were:

Dragon Warrior
River City Ransom
Legacy of the Wizard
Zelda 1 and 2
SMB 2 and 3
Dynasty of an Emporer
Mystery Quest

Honorable mention to Battletoads (surely I'm not the only person who ever beat that game?)

8 more weeks till I get to meet my little Buckeye for the first time!  So excited.  Judging by how much she's moving in there, I imagine she'll come out ready for something like this:

The NCAA, like many other regulatory bodies, relies on a ton of self-governance from the institutions it oversees.  Often, having compliant procedures and evidence that those procedures are being followed and are effective can be more important than the actual severity of a violation.  This self-reporting is an example of that evidence.  That this kind of thing is published is all political FOI BS so that the media can get a bunch of page clicks twice a year, when in truth it is actually detrimental to the process and public perception.  The NCAA has a lot of visible flaws, but there is also a reason for a lot of what they do that people don't seem to grasp or just take for granted.  They have a very complex job.  Because the world don't move to the beat of just one drum.  What might be right for you, may not be right for some... They'll have theirs, and you'll have yours, and I'll have mine, and together we'll be fine.  Cause it takes, Diff'rent Strokes to move the world.  Yes it does.
