I know my heart will be broken tonight. I feel it.
No unfortunately. Just saw it from the top. And it's a real possibility I would like it if I could like make a journey out of it. I was in Montana in Big Sky and they took us to see all these famous mountains and it was boring as hell. I came back the next day and saw nearly the exact same things but was hiking through it on horseback and it was one of the best days of that year for me. I need the experience of a situation. I don't like just standing there and staring at shit
LOL. My dad says my opinion will change when I have kids. And I wasn't singling out the Grand Canyon. Pretty much any monolithic landmark I've ever seen. Grand Canyon, Ocean, manmade stuff like the Washington monument, etc. Bored within 10 minutes, and I'm definitely not the kind of guy that will sit there jockeying against other tourists to get a picture either. I'd pay to go back to Tokyo and eat & drink my way through the city for the 10th time over an all expense paid trip to stare off into the distance at some landmark. I thought there had to be a likewise minded Buckeye out there, but maybe I am truly dead inside haha.
Wishing you a great trip OP. But this thread seems like a good place to ask the following: Am I an asshole for being unimpressed by the Grand Canyon? As with many natural attractions it was one of those things where I saw it, said "Welp, there it is" and was ready to go in like 10 mins. I'm technically a millennial, so maybe growing up on the internet has ruined me. I've heard the GC is better by helicopter or taking a kayak or boat through it which I didn't do. But natural landmarks just don't really do it for me. Give me a day exploring a city over a big hole in the ground any day. Anyone else this way?
That's one way to look at it. Another way to look at it is if it was some poor nobody it wouldn't be making headlines across the country to do irreparable damage to his or her reputation and there wouldn't be a random thread of 40 guys in Ohio talking about it on the internet. People skate on these charges every day, rich or poor. Who gives a shit?
Do I need to bump the Baker Bros United thread again or what?
Is Dan Snyder our shadow AD? Mattison's salary is ABSURD.
If we have another season of Lee Corso fumbling through the telecast, Fox may overtake Gameday with this lineup. I get the guy had a stroke, but ESPN marching him out every week to make a fool of himself is just flat out cruel.
1. The Game should be a color vs color uniform matchup and it should join the 21st century and be played at prime time
2. When recruits back out of their commitments at the last minute and play games on social media to fake out coaches recruiting them, they are assholes. Don’t care how old they are.
3. Urban lost his passion well before the ZS stuff.
4. Caring if recruits are from Ohio or not is the biggest waste of time on this board. It’s the Ohio State version of the ridiculous “Michigan Man” nonsense that continues to set back the Wolverines to this day. Very happy our program lives in the reality of 2019 football. Wish the fan base could catch up.
5. Please don’t ban me, but letting Birm walk was a mistake for 11W. Recruiting coverage has never been the same. No disrespect to his replacements, it’s not that they were bad. It’s just that he was and continues to be the best.
I don't like alternate uniforms, particularly since it's just a ploy by Nike to sell more crap to fans.
i don’t know how many more times me, or the copious amount of others need to post, but for the love of God, this is wildly inaccurate. Ohio State and other programs request these changes/alternates. Not the other way around. It’s not in the contract, it isn’t forced upon anyone, and that’s that. Saying you just flat out don’t like alternate unis is an opinion and a fair one. But at least know how the process works before you blame the companies for it. A company that is paying poor old Ohio State nearly a quarter billion dollars for the privilege to do so.
Don't know if you're single or not, but there's an open air rooftop bar on top of the W called POV and it is a great spot to take dates on weeknights. Or if you have a lady, maybe do a little date-night there. It overlooks the White House but you can see the whole city. Great vibes.
This is kind of where I'm at. Other teams are still making it happen despite rule changes etc. Seems crazy we haven't had one go back for 4 years now. I am curious to see the national average. We have to be towards the bottom
Pretty much agree across the board. The story hooked me and I loved everything about it but was expecting a big payoff and was left utterly disappointed. Junius pulled the equivalent of the fucking Scooby Doo gang pulling the mask off the mystery monster and he just reveals his entire plan in full detail before the police arrive. Except there was no mask. Wayne completely blacking our the minute he arrives at Julie’s house was corny as shit as well. Introducing such a crucial character (Mike) with 10 mins to go in the season was also incredibly hokey. I will still say everyone’s performances were incredible and the story had me all the way through, although I found the Amelia arc to be boring as well, but the finale was hot trash. It was like HBO cut the season by an episode so the writers had to scramble to finish the story in 1 less episode.
My little brother and his friends moved to San Diego from Ohio and for a time were the biggest fucking bros (in the douchebag way, not physical size) in human history and involved in a MLM scam that ended up being shut down by the government. I referred to them as the Brohios. When I was ready to come out from the lurking shadows on 11W and finally start posting, I was looking for a one word handle and just typed it in without any thought. Luckily my brother righted the ship, is a great well rounded guy now and I haven't said the word Brohio out loud in years, but it lives on through my anonymous 11W posts.
Dwayne is my fav Ohio State QB since Troy and I love him like a son but if you think he would go ahead of Lawrence, that is a fantasyland take. I am glad Lawrence isn’t in this draft so it makes things look better for Ohio State but read nearly every NFL scout interview and Schefter/Rapaport’s leaks and you have to be a realist and see Lawrence would go 1-1 in this draft.
He’s started 2 less total games and 2 more playoff games than Haskins. Have you not seen enough on him either?
New England, New Orleans, or Green Bay could not even get the number 1 pick in this year’s draft for Brees, Brady or Rodgers straight up and Lawrence isn’t even available. It would take one of those QB’s plus another 1st round to get #1 even in a down draft year life this. No GM worth his salt would pass on Lawrence with 5 years of rookie contract for a 35+ year old QB making the money those guys are guaranteed.
Position plays a big part of this I agree. The dumbest take by far yesterday is someone said Saquon Barkley and we shamed him into oblivion. There are no untouchable running backs, the lifespan is ridiculously short and half of them miss 6 games or more to injury every season. Just a bananas take saying any RB over Lawrence. I don’t care if it was Barry Sanders in his prime
My love for Baker grows by the day. It’s just if I was an NFL GM with my job on the line nearly every move I make, and someone says the 6 foot 6 highest rated high school QB in history that clown-suited Alabama and won a Natty on his first swing was up for grabs, I’d have to consider that. I’m not saying I would immediately trade Baker for him but I would give the offer some serious consideration versus me saying “No thanks. See ya” and hanging up the phone if Mahomes was on my roster.
Baker came up a few times. It’s basically upside vs upside. And almost identical contract scenarios. Would really come down to what offense you were running since that’s the biggest difference between them. And we’re also under the assumption that Baker has grown out of his off the field issues which we’ve only seen for one year. If you have seen my past posts I am a Baker superfan, so no slight to him. I just wouldn’t consider him untouchable like Mahomes
I hate myself for posting this but my OCD won’t let this go unchecked. The ‘54 helmet pictured here is a fraud. I don’t know if they are claiming these were game worn but even if they are conceding these helmets weren’t game worn, the model of that helmet is the Riddell Speed Revolution model. That model wasn’t implemented until 2010 and the Buckeyes wore the ‘54 throwbacks in 2009. Again, I am a loser for even knowing this but my OCD took full control here lol.
I completely disagree. I've been with my girl for 2 and a half years and we met on an app. Best relationship I've ever had and I will barring some catastrophe, be with her the rest of my life. I think apps were the best thing to ever happen to dating. It's like a rapid audition process to carve down to what you actually want. At least thats the way I saw it. I was going on like 3 dates a week (and I'm certainly no Chris Hemsworth) and by seeing such a diversity of women, I was really able to pinpoint what I really wanted in a girl for the first time in my life. However, I think it has more to do with what city you're in. I'm in LA so there was such a large dating pool. I could see it being difficult in smaller areas.
Oh man. I have a great one. I lived in Cincinnati about 7 years ago, specifically the Mt Adams neighborhood. Mt Adams was the party area so it was super easy to meet girls. Anyway I meet a girl and we talk and I mention I’m originally from Toledo and somehow the conversation turns into a Cedar Point vs Kings Island debate. I’d never been to Kings Island but I was trying to explain how Cedar Point was the best amusement park on planet Earth (because it just fucking is ok?) So she pulls a super smooth move and was like “Let me show you Kings Island tomorrow.” I said ok, we exchanged numbers and we parted ways. It was just one of those drunk convos you have so I thought nothing of it and kind of forgot about it. Then the next morning I get a text like “So will you really go?” I’m thinking fuck it, why not. It would make for a cool story just randomly riding rollercoasters with a girl I barely know. Important detail to this story is Kings Island was like a 40 min drive away. So I pick her up, she seems cool, and vibes are good on the ride to Kings Island. So we are almost there and I can’t help but notice her phone keeps vibrating like she is getting a ton of calls. We arrive at Kings Island and as we’re getting out of the car I’m like “Hey if you need to answer that, it’s totally cool”. So she says something like “yeah it’s my mom I don’t know what she wants” and she calls her back. I will never forget watching her just explode into tears and scream. Apparently her grandmother had died. Very unexpectedly. Keep in mind, I barely know this girl. So she’s freaking out and obviously we’re not going to the park. It dawns on me that we have a 40 min drive to get back. Brother you want to talk about awkwardness so thick you could cut with a chainsaw? That drive back took 2 years off my life. My ass was clinched tighter than a snare drum. She’s crying her eyes out, she’s with some random dude she met at a bar, and we’re driving in dead silence. What was I gonna do? It’s not like I had a “So your grandma just died” playlist on my iPod. I felt awful of course but I’m still a human being and my brain is like “we need to get out of this fucking situation immediately”. They will write books about that 40 minute drive. It will be in the Smithsonian’s hall of awkward someday. Just thinking about it makes me want to hide under a blanket until the thought passes. She texted me to thank me for taking her back. We did not speak again lol.
TLDR: Date with a relative stranger ends before it starts by death of grandmother resulting in the most painfully awkward 40 minutes in human history.
