They should just get it over with and rename it "The Kirk Ferentz Trophy for Doing Marginally Better than Expected B1G Coach of the Year Award".  At the reception of this award you get the trophy and a pack of gum.

Has anyone played Halo 5 yet?  From what I've seen, I haven't been impressed -- granted I've been intoxicated when playing/watching at a friends house.

Excellent points.  However, I will add this: my microsoft account was hacked around 2008, it took microsoft nearly 8 months to unlock my account after their "investigation".  Suffice it to say, I never looked back at my 360.  Plus, having experience with both xbox live and ps plus, I think sony's offering is no bullshit the best value for my annual 50$.

Agreed here, '94.   Don't bother investing in an older generation console at this point (unless its cheap as hell on ebay), both sony and microsoft will stop supporting them in the future.  I have a ps4 and enjoy it a good bit for gaming, netflix, nhl gamecenter, bluray.  A good friend has both and rarely uses his xbone.  For kids in the 8-14 range, just getting into gaming, I would lean toward the wii-u just for the introduction to the classic titles, Mario Maker anyone?? But if you want more functionality, I'd throw my vote in for the ps4 any day.

Couch has some excellent points.  

My two cents worth: I have a 70 inch samsung smart tv and a 45 inch vizio.  The biggest regret I have is getting a vizio as my second option vs a second samsung. The vizio's picture is fine, but the volume control is marginal at best, and for a flat screen, it still runs about 8 inches deep, where as my samsung seems about half of that.  

I would also argue against a curved TV, friends of ours have a smaller, 40ish inch curved samsung and a 60+ inch curved samsung in their rec room -- I refuse to sit on the sides of those tvs as its very hard to see, in my opinion.  It reminds me a lot of the old projection tube flat screens.

Lastly, I have my big tv above our fireplace.  It has actually been above two gas fire places -- one mounted in brick and the other (currently) mounted in drywall above the mantle.  I have had no issues at all with heat or color distortion etc (whatever the main concern would be).  I have made it a point to put it at least 12-18 inches above the top of the hearth opening to allow for some cooling.  Just as couch said though, if you mount it above the fire place, make sure you have your couches back enough or the tv is low enough to prevent a kinked neck.  If mine was 6 inches lower it'd be perfect (can't due to how our surround is constructed).

She's just pissed because Bert can't wrap his stubby little meat hooks around his ample sized gut to pull on hisself on live TV.

Question is, where did the team get those neck ties.  Anyone on campus know if they're at the bookstore??

Copious amounts of cocktails will be consumed.  Having a big cookout Saturday w/ some coworkers for the holiday/football.  Monday for our gameday, will be doing flank steak on the grill (garlic power, salt, pepper), and some lemon/parm asparagus on the grill as well.  Some tasty rolls to accompany.

Here's to football! Go Buckeyes!

183, I'll take a medium shirt, thanks!

Edit: as a reminder from an earlier post, our first score is a sweep to right on 3rd and goal, Curtis Samuel.
