That's the stuff. Good find and great beer -- they had it on tap at this one bar in myrtle beach, which is weird because myrtle's craft beer selection is rather limited.

I log a bunch of minutes since I pull up 11W in the work browser at the start of the day and leave it up all day.  I don't post much, because usually IE9 craps out on me on the work PCs and the office doesn't all the fox or chrome.

My teams are not Buckeye related, but I am proud of them anyway and will share: Badly Timed Boners, Downfield Abstinence, and Vaginal Hubris (thanks The League!)

I'm a big fan of this sour beer movement.  Its a big thing with the local microbrews down here in SEC land.  Charleston SC's Westbrook brewery had a really good seasonal sour -- the name escapes me right now tho.  Cheers to this beer of the week choice!

I like this topic, but since its a Monday, I'm struggling to formulate coherent thoughts.

All I'll say is that I think the specific subset of fans, like us on 11W, that follow recruiting in this fashion have the ability and intelligence to temper our expectations of these kids coming into the college programs that we follow.

I do not like how the new recruiting game has given the ability for kids to publicize their college choice at press conferences and over the top announcement shows.  I believe this is a manifestation of our selfie obsessed social media culture and can only lead to bigger problems other than fan expectations, which relates back to this quote above

I'd bet that most recruits are not emotionally/mentally equipped at age 16-18 to handle the modern recruiting process in a healthy, positive way unless they are surrounded by really good adult.

There are a handful of us over on the grand strand. Got some friends moving to Greenville, looking forward to spending more time upstate.

The site was down. I was unable to refresh the screen for bout an hour since the original article. 

Soooooo in that case: BOOOOOOOM BABY!!! It's a great day in buckeye nation.

You're right, dunno why I was thinking Smith on that -- probably just because of all the other catches he made in that fashion.  I still stand by saying that DS can adjust easily to the ball.

Comment 21 Jul 2015

Agreed SM.  My play that wasn't a play, that should have been a play was the early one handed grab Smith made in the Sugar Bowl that was ruled incomplete.  To say he doesn't adjust to the ball is just crazy.

As a stage 3c testicular cancer survivor at the age of 24, zach is at one of the best places for treatment.  The James hospital is a hell of a place and they treat their buckeye students in the best way possible. Good luck and good vibes his way.
