Anyone with Sirius XM should tune in to Deep Tracks, ch. 27. All Rush Tribute yesterday and today ...

Zack - Thanks for making me chuckle! Always needed on a Monday morning!

in keeping my ears to the grindstone

A 'Malaphor' is an informal term for a mixture of two aphorisms, idioms, or clichés (such as "We'll burn that bridge when we come to it"). Also called an idiom blend. See the quoted example above ...

(Should be: Ear to the ground; nose to the grindstone).

Hey Beserkr ... are there class recruiting rankings like in football? How does Ohio State stand compared to the rest of the conference?
(I know Maryland and JH will be very good ...)

One thing that hasn't been mentioned ... if you do decide to keep the cat, have it checked by a vet as it may have issues common to strays, like:

  • Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV)
  • Feline leukemia virus (FeLV)
  • Heartworm
  • Tapeworm
  • Roundworm
  • Hookworm
  • Toxoplasma

A fecal test and a blood test are required, but well worth the cost.

A couple of things - notably an arrest for marijuana possession and some internal fighting with teammates. These are what is publicly known, but there was likely more than that in order to not be invited back as a 5* recruit and starter on the Ga. defense.

The best way to tell if it's scabies is a skin scrape and microscopy (to look for eggs, mites, and fecal matter).

Seek medical attention when exposure to mites is suspected as the cause of skin irritation. This is certainly true in the case of scabies infestations that will require medication. In addition, bedding and clothing of scabies-infected persons should be washed regularly in hot water.

I can't upvote this enough.

I coach HS Bowling, and had to miss the first half of the game. It's about the kids. The Game is a great rivalry, but in the end it is a spectator event. Not nearly as important as my (expected) participation in real life.

Probably a couple of reasons. Some have been covered above, like talent/recruiting. It might also have to do with the fact that the RPO'/Spread/WC/Air Raid offenses involve speedy players in space, and the plays help to create and utilize mismatches based on numbers advantages.

It might also have to do with the offensive scheme that TTUN runs as well. Their defense doesn't really see a lot of spread offense in daily practice because Jimmy prefers his TE's and FB's - more like smashmouth football.
