There were rumors that Tulane owned a lot of houses in an adjacent neighborhood and were thinking of tearing them down to build an on campus stadium.  These are old houses which are architecturally unique and I was sad to hear that.

They ended up building the stadium where the existing practice field was - where I thought it should have gone anyway.

I read Ohio St players drafted in the first round are estimated to have made $81 million in contracts.  I'm guessing the 2nd & 3rd round picks will push that over $100 million.  I think the previous record was in 2013 for Bama with $51 Mil.

I wonder if OSU's graphic guys can get Meyer to pose as Dr. Evil along with the contract numbers with the text - 100 Million Dollars!

I was looking at a database of NFL players by home town the other day (a hunch I had about Texas QB's) and noticed that many of the early players had multiple positions listed.  

I wondered if 2 way players were much more common before the 40's than I had thought.

(I can't remember what site the database was on).

Didn't mean to be a downer. I had issues in Toronto asking someone about a word on a posted menu outside - I can guess a bit of French,

i think that couple was Not Canadian.

Canadians were great - awesome.

except at border control.

yes, I have Texas plates.

yes, I do have a couple knives - my dad gave them to me in Ohio - they were my grandfathers.  They are bubble wrapped.

I disagree.  The triple option has at least 12 plays & probably triple that. 

The QB follow HB was killing us the year we won by returning a 2 PT conversion.
