As a 92 Ohio State graduate with a finance degree, I too make my living in the capital markets, although not actually on Wall Street.  We do business with KBH and did in 2001 as well.  My path never crossed with Kris, but it is another brick in what is a large wall of the human losses in my industry.  I’ve heard many a story from people who lost colleagues.  I’m glad his family and friends are able to celebrate what they had while still mourning what they lost.  

To use a verse from Alan Jackson’s Remember When:

 Remember when we said when we turned gray
When the children grow up and move away
We won't be sad, we'll be glad
For all the life we've had
And we'll remember when

Kids are so cruel to each other.  I pray my kids have never and will never break someone's spirit like what happened here.  I may have to get one of these.  Save it for when UT plays TTUN someday.

I think for a guy that has never done this before, this is the smart way to do it.  If you focus out of state where the coach is a bigger draw and the school less so versus instate kids, there is more risk.  Start with locking down Ohio where the school is a big draw and then over time as you build your name you can draw kids from areas that the school pull isn’t as great. Plus, Ohio has some talented football players.

Plus, we know TTUN can’t build a team without Ohio kids.  So, locking down the state hurts them too.

Summer has arrived early this year in Georgia.  Forecast calls for upper 90s next week.  That’s still May!  God Bless anyone without a/c.

I love how the word lie is tossed around so easily.  Did he lie or did something change?  This kid doesn’t have enough information to know.  But in today’s world, the earned part of respect comes after the respect.  Whatever, dude.  Have fun in A2.

I looked at the comments specifically to see if anyone commented on that fact.  Jackets have looked good, but in a tight series things can turn quickly.  It still isn't over.  But, the hubris was a bit over the top, I thought.  That shtick where you call the championship early as if it already happened was a once in a lifetime call from DJ.  And I agree he should own it, but I'd probably use a more blunt object than you did.  I didn't DV you.

Football is a great sport to watch.  The problem with it is, there is infinitely more time spent talking about it and speculating on it than time spent watching it.  Mock drafts the week before the draft have a low hit rate, yet they still get done.  And we immediately turn the page to next year’s draft, even though there are so many variables, you may as well be forecasting the weather for the same day as the draft.  This isn’t a knock on 11W.  It’s a knock on football writers everywhere.  Create content where none is needed.

Comment 19 Apr 2019

I agree that it is absurd to punish kids that have graduated.  They aren’t the problem.  I think requiring two years before a free transfer is a good idea.  Increase the odds that they are making a good decision, not an emotional one.

I think all answers have a flaw in terms of who you recruit.  If you recruit two studs, you increase the odds that you have a good qb, but you know the loser will leave if they are good.  If you only recruit one stud and one more backup type guy, what happens if the stud doesn’t develop?  Seems you are earning your paycheck more now than in the past.  If you choose poorly, you can sink your season, if you are a coach.

I'm a Bengals fan, but loved LeBeau except as our head coach.  Respected the heck out of him.  Agree on recruiting.  Also agree on not sure if its a great move or not.  Creating turmoil at a rival is good though.  Day knows more about what he's doing than any of us.  My point was as much new fresh ideas are more important on offense.  Defense is more about soundness where tried and true still works.

Comment 04 Jan 2019

Time will tell if the right moves are being made, but being able to take something from crap to mediocre is not the same as taking something good and making it great.  We all thought/hoped that his ability to make an awful defense mediocre out west would show genius with real talent.  That didn't work out last year to some extent.  Wish the guy nothing but the best, but not sure if it is a big loss or not.  Schiano has been around long enough that I'm willing to think last year was an outlier.  It's Day's call, and I think it is easier to question Bill Davis' value versus saying Schiano is the problem.

Comment 04 Jan 2019

The problem I have, is he has on occasion crossed over a line of confidence into a little desperation.  I don't like what amounts to direct comments to Fields.  When he does that, he sounds like he lacks confidence and knows his best hope to play and start is to keep Fields from coming.  When he talks about the confidence in his game, I agree with you.  When he spoke and tried to make it sound like he was doing Fields a solid telling him the offense is tough to pickup and he doesn't want him to be disappointed, I wish he would instead say "No comment".

I can’t agree more with this. The problem isn’t the playoffs it’s the committee. They have unchecked power. There are no agreed upon criteria. It’s all the eye test. Force Notre Dame to join a conference and make it a rule that if you don’t play in conference title game you don’t get consideration. I’d like to see the conferences put up one team they want considered and then let the committee decide top 4 of 5 teams but we all know we need a path to multiple sec teams. I’d love the committee pick the top four champions, personally.
