Comment 14 Dec 2013

I have a question about parking. I've never had to drive to games before being a student but is there any free parking for basketball games? Mainly wondering about the lot that is southwest of the Schott. I appreciate any answers.

Just got back from the game and a night out on OSU campus.

This is the highlight of my night.

Just knowing some of my friends who are on scholarships to division 1 programs and no where near the caliber of Ohio State, I would say they live very comfortably. Disregarding the argument about whether they deserved to be paid or not they definitely have enough to pay for school and a very nice living for a college kid after that.

24 sacks by Terrell Suggs at Arizona State in 2002 is the record. 

It's only current up to 2010 but I found that record, along with all of the other records here.

I'll be the first to admit I was wrong about DeShaun. Originally I didn't like him very much because he seemed to be all about him and whined a lot. After learning a lot more about him and watching him grow I have nothing but the upmost respect for him. The more I learn about him the more I respect him. Whatever his future includes I will be rooting for him.

Hopefully the underdog will win in this one though. I don't care if Charles will talk crap about the B1G. It'd put a smile on my face to see Tom Crean knocked out this early. 

Comment 26 Feb 2013

I completely agree with this. My parents very rarely used any physical contact with me, but I'm also only 19 years old so it was a lot less acceptable to do it to me. How my parents raised me was very similar to yours. They taught me that you won't go anywhere in life if you don't have a strong work ethic and respect for others. My family did well for themselves but anytime I wanted something that was a luxury, it would be coming out of my own pocket. Which taught me the value of a dollar.

Most kids my age are completely content with staying at home, not working, and in my eyes, not doing anything with their life. To me, I see that as a lack of personal accountability because my parents have always taught me to be proud of yourself and your last name. I also see a failure on the parents part to not push their children to be as successful as they can be (however you measure success). 

I know that if I was still living with my parents at the age of 25 I would be doing everything in my power to get out of that house and to live on my own. I understand sometimes complications arise and it might be necessary, but for that it would be a temporary stop and definitely not a permanent home. 

I'm ashamed to say this, but I believe my generation will be a reason for a big downfall in America. Everyone is too complacent and many think that money/jobs/family will come without work. My facebook news feed has become full with classmates of mine that have become pregnant. I just hope that these people that are having children now will instill a good work ethic into their children, but I fear that isn't going to happen.

Really? I'm all for scoring until the clock hits zero in football. No, I don't think the starters should be in if it is a big lead. But if you can't stop the backups then keep scoring. However, in basketball at a situation like that the opposing team has basically given up and stopped playing. I would be disappointed in any OSU player doing that at the end.

Comment 26 Feb 2013

I believe so. Football is a collision sport while basketball is a contact sport. I think that spills over to how much physical contact is allowed by coaches. For example, no cross country coaches get physical with their runners. Also, with basketball you are on a stage. Everyone can see/hear you wherever you are on the court. With football, it is much harder to see everything on the sidelines and almost impossible to hear. I think all of these factors make it more accepted for football coaches to become physical with their players.

 

Comment 26 Feb 2013

Looking at your link about running extra laps as punishment. Are you kidding me? You're playing a sport which means it is not mandatory and no one is forcing you to do it. You should know there will be physical requirements when you play a SPORT. That's pathetic that he was suspended for that. With that, my rant is finished. 

Comment 26 Feb 2013

I agree with this. I don't have any problem with physical contact but the problem is where do you draw the line. I think in practice, shoving and grabbing of the face mask is okay. Now during a game in front of everyone I wouldn't approve of it because of the way it is perceived by the media.

Comment 26 Feb 2013

I totally agree. Who on their schedule is that tough? LSU and A&M which they have a bye week before which can drastically help. Virginia Tech is always a threat and I assume that Arkansas will be tougher. Auburn is always a rivalry game which won't be a cake walk.

Comment 26 Feb 2013

Talking about staying classy, Elijah Johnson should have pulled the ball out at the end instead of dunking it. We get it, you had a hell of a game but have some respect for an unranked team that took you to overtime.

Comment 25 Feb 2013

Just for fun and because I'm bored I decided to do this same type of analysis with Alabama. I believe I was also generous in my percentages given to Alabama.

Game                              Chance of Win    

Virginia Tech                    90%

@ Texas A&M*                 80%

Colorado State                 99%

Ole Miss                           95%

Georgia State                   99.9%

@ Kentucky                     99%

Arkansas                          95%

Tennessee                      95%

LSU*                              75%

@ Miss State                    95%

Chattanooga                   99.9%

@ Auburn                       95%

*Previous week is a BYE week.

Chance of regular undefeated regular season = 40.9%

SEC Championship           70%

National Championship      50%

Chance of 14-0 Season = 14.3%

This is also with very generous percentages and it is also worth noting that before their two toughest games (Texas A&M, LSU) they have a bye week. When you take that into consideration they really do not have that tough of a schedule. Although I'm sure they will still get the SEC points once the polls come out.
