First World Problems: CFB Edition.
Had something similar happen to me, only it was because of an Obama magnet on my car. Dude was raging on me as I drove down the road one day, flipping me the bird and yelling racist crap at me. I just ignored him for the most part and proceded to pull into the parking lot of my destination. The guy must have followed me. When I came out the magnet was gone from my car and my car had been keyed. What a dick.
Those who stay will be champions.
That glee club video was great, but it cuts off entirely too soon. Anybody have links to a full length version?
In a way, it makes me a smile a little to know that he is going to have to watch his program get slobberknockered and still be diplomatic.
If they didn't and something bad happened, it would probably end up costing OSU a lot of money defending from law suits, inquiries, and a PR disaster. And it could, must maybe, might save somebody from dying or suffering serious injury. I don't like it either, but it's part of surviving as a large organization in a very litigious society.
Also Mariotta has a career resume. I like it when the award goes to upperclassmen. Unless there is a young player who is just far and above the best CFB player as an underclassman (Tebow, Newton, etc.) But all things being equal, I think career accomplishments would weigh more heavily with me than what seems to be the general consensus among the actual voters.
14/24 passing 2TD/1Int, 15 rushes for 64 yds, sacked 4 times, 1 fumble lost.
I really don't think bye weeks have much an effect either way honestly. The analyses I have read over the years have found that bye weeks have little to no effect on team performance, either good or bad.
I sure as hell am not paying a $100 subscription just to get one game. Doing it the old-fashioned way, listening on the radio. I might try that feed above, but I'm not too keen on picking up malware if I accidentally click the wrong thing.
I am a veteran of the US Navy as well as a Ohio State alumnus and current employee. I'm not sure I deserve these tickets any more than anybody else as there are plenty of Navy Veterans who are also Buckeye fans, but I will say that I will be loud and I will be proud to cheer on the Buckeyes (and the Middies too) in Baltimore. Also, I have never been to an away game. So that would be fun too. I'd take my brother who just recently retired from the US Army, and who is a life-long Buckeyes fan who hasn't been to a game in over 20 years due to his service.
A great chance that somebody named Bosa will be playing DE for the next 5 years at least? Couldn't ask for much better than that.
Totally agree on the music. I've felt the same way for years. I do like the 'Hells Bells' intro on third downs, but that is it. At least if they're going to use commercial music, use something that isn't already used someplace else and is unique to Ohio State alone. And let the players select a different song each game for their intro. That would make it kind of fun.
Interestingly Cameron Mitchell no longer owns Mitchell's Steak House. He sold it to Ruth's Hospitality Group about 5 years ago or so. He also sold the Mitchell's (Columbus) Fish Market restaurants with them.
Many of them make good aquarium fish too. We have an aquarium in our lab that has only small fish from Ohio. Some of the minnows and shiners have some interesting colors, but darters are definitely my favorites.
Sturgeon are definitely very cool, especially for the caviar lovers. Another good candidate along those lines would be the paddlefish which is what we call a 'living fossil' due to its close relationship with ancient fish. Gar are also pretty cool. Sleek and with rows of sharp teeth, they are very menacing looking (although almost completely harmless to humans)
As somebody who works with all of Ohio's fishes (not just game fish), I'd go with the rainbow darter (Etheostoma caeruleum). It's one of my personal favorites.
Another colorful Ohio darter is the greenside darter (Etheostoma blennioides):
In fact, I love all of the darters and there are quite a few that occur in Ohio. I'm also partial to the sand darter (Ammocrypta pellucida) due to it's sleek form.
Apart from the darters, I also like madtoms a lot. Madtoms are miniature catfish. Here is a mountain madtom (Noturus eleutherus). They grow to only about 4 or 5 inches at the most.
Well, I could go on all day with this discussion as working with fish is what I do. The small fishes are my favorites and the most interesting to me. Everybody knows about the big game fish (walleye, perch, bass, trout, catfish, sunfish, etc) but the small stream fish are rarely seen, yet offer so many interesting characteristics. If Ohio were to adopt an official fish, I would vote for one of the little guys.
I recently moved to UA and love it. Everybody has been very friendly, there are lots of nice parks and other things to do, and it is close to just about everything one could want.
More like under my feet. I got the joke. I just decided to respond frankly so not to acknowledge such a lame joke.
LBJ and ESPN could have raised that money in any number of ways. It was about hype and marketing. There was no need to string along our northern brethren to do so. I think if LBJ could do it over, things might be handled differently, as I think he's a good guy overall. But I don't think it is too far fetched for Clevelanders to feel disappointed.
I'm not the LBJ hater that some are, but I understand why Cavs fans feel a little miffed by the way he strung Cleveland along. I don't blame LBJ for his decision as it is his career, but I do think The Decision was not a good way for LBJ to go about things. While I support all Ohio sports teams, the Buckeyes are my favorite by far. So if LBJ is a Buckeyes fan, then he is A-OK in my book.
It looks like Giovanni Strassini also made a IMDB profile for himself for his Rose Bowl appearance:
Any bird that plays the drums deserves better than #8.
Fan: Where are they taking all those enormous fans?
Oden: They're installing them in the locker rooms. The visitor's hotel called over to tell the AD that Brady Hoke has indicated he would like franks-n-beans for his pregame meal.
