Bourbon and New England IPAs if I’m going quality over quantity.

Feel free to go ahead and revoke my man card, but I’ve been enjoying white claws when I’m volume drinking. Decent ABV and with very mild side effects the next day.

I had a very busy sports schedule and would mow/weed eat for elderly people in the community. Might be tough transporting equipment back and forth but just a thought.

Honestly, it all depends on what your interest rate on what you borrowed. The stock market has been performing well over the past few years so I would look to burrow money away if your interest rates are low. If your company has a 401k match, save up to that percentage. Then invest in a Roth IRA until you max it out. Then, max our your 401k if you can swing it. That’s just my method but I’m also a frugal penny pincher who often thinks about livin’ a little more instead of squirreling everything away. 

What line of work are you in now and in what region do you live?

Property taxes! This sounds pretty stupid, but I had little knowledge regarding taxes and other fees while I was renting. 

If you’re in a more urban setting, make sure to do research on possible development plans in your area. I live close to downtown Columbus and many older folks are selling their homes as fast as they can because developers are doing whatever they want with little pushback from city council. You don’t want to move into a new home only to have a large apartment building pop up next door.

I like to take it easy on Friday night and then wake up extra early on Saturday, around 6am. I'll workout, do laundry, and grocery shop for the week ahead. I throw some #meat on the Traeger (night before if it's brisket) and load up the crock pots with my meals for the week and put them in the fridge. 

At this point, I have most of my responsibilities fulfilled by the start of Gameday. I check different betting websites and see which games are getting my action. I then either settle into the couch for the majority of the day or meet my friends out at one of the Short North bars to get prime real estate. It's pretty much food, drinks, and football until around midnight. 

I used to spend my Sundays napping, especially during the second half of Browns games but it looks like that will have to change this year. It can't get here soon enough!

This is probably an unpopular opinion but Pete Werner was Tyler Moeller-esque a couple years ago when the D was fast and having fun. I would also like to add Josh Proctor to this list. 

To be honest, I don’t think it’s too fair to compare last year’s performance to this year’s expectations. The defensive coaching was THAT messed up and I expect everyone to show out this year. 

Comment 15 Aug 2019

I use Action Network, Covers, and Twitter to get a feel for consensus bets. College football is easiest for me but I can’t get the hang of NFL betting so I tend to stay away. 

I also stick to units and sprinkle $20 here and there on outlandish parlays just for fun. 

Comment 14 Aug 2019

A really good friend of mine was a GA. He told me little tidbits as to why players “left” and certain recruiting stories but didn’t mention much regarding relationships between coaches. I think that info is considered sacred. 

I did visit him a few times at the Woody because he pretty much lived in the offices. He and other support staff would basically work 18 hours a day and sleep on old couches while making ~$25k/year. His primary job was watching game film of of future opponents and prepping huge binders worth of information for the coaching staff to review. He would sometimes give me team issued clothing from a supplies locker if I would badger him for it. There were closets stacked with awesome Nike dri-fit gear, shoes, etc. 

He ultimately accepted a position coach role at a smaller D1 university which bumped him from $25k to $170k. The coach was fired a few years later and now he’s on to another team working as a position coach. You can make a lot of money in the profession but it’s a whirlwind.

I do love those two areas. My are  looking at some areas east of Columbus and property taxes are absurd compared to the Columbus of old. 

Comment 13 Aug 2019

That sounds like a pretty solid setup. We’re looking at areas close enough to Akron and Canton that still maintain a rural feel. We’re also considering the St. Clairsville area because it has decent schools and is slightly over an hour to Pittsburgh which isn’t a huge deal. 

Comment 12 Aug 2019

That's the ideal situation for me. I wouldn't mind driving 60 to 90 minutes to fly out of either Cleveland or Pittsburgh. Driving isn't so bad now that we have Spotify, Sirius, and podcasts.

Comment 12 Aug 2019

My fiancee has relatives between Bolivar and Zoar. I have to drive almost 30 minutes to get to a decent public golf course in Columbus whereas Wilkshire and Zoar Village are just a few miles from each other. Same thing goes biking. I have to load up my cycle and drive across the city to hop on a decent trail whereas Towpath is right down the road in Bolivar. 

Comment 12 Aug 2019

That's a great point. My parents used to keep their doors unlocked until they were robbed about eight years ago. 

Comment 12 Aug 2019

That sad part is there are much worse things than drinking going on in Steubenville. Some of these players and their families are hard living folk who are caught up in the drug world. Steubenville is a popular distribution hub for many Chicago gangs who are selling to Pittsburgh and Wheeling area. It's not uncommon to see at least one former player a year lost to violence. 

Comment 12 Aug 2019

I faced this same dilemma a few years back and settled on the Traeger Pro 34. There's nothing better than making some great brisket and/or ribs during football season. I usually throw them on around midnight the night before and let it smoke throughout the night. I do wish I ponied up and bought the Timberline so I could receive diagnostic updates to my phone if something were to go amiss when I'm sleeping or not home. 

My fiancee was skeptical at first but she loves using it to cook chicken, veggies, etc throughout the week. I usually buy the cheaper pellets from Lowe's for regular cooks (I believe Pit Boss brand) and Traeger branded pellets for longer smokes. 

Comment 12 Aug 2019

I grew up near Steubenville and still visit often. A few thoughts tidbits:

There are many great people from the area but Steubenville obviously has many grown adults who are a little too into the football program. It’s great for any school to have that type of support but it’s to the point where it is football above everything else. 

The guy who was recorded on video laughing about what was taking place actually attended OSU when this all hit the fan. I think he may have been home for break. I remember PSA posters plastered all over OSU with his face and information regarding his role in the incident. He eventually transferred due to threats I guess. 

Shawn Mcghee, who was seen on video speaking out against what was occurring, is an All-American wrestler at Campbellsville University. 

Comment 02 Aug 2019

I found it interesting that Jason Brown only makes $60k a year. I guess it shouldn’t surprise me as his assistants are living in cinderblock dorms (and it’s a CC in Kansas) but they made him look like a homerun hire at the beginning of last season.

Comment 30 Jul 2019

FSU has dated facilities, a coach in over his head who will be fired in a couple years, and I believe is last in academic progress rate. But at least they have the coeds and honey fried chicken! Willie’s buyout was $21.5M last season so they will be in even worse financial shape when he’s eventually canned. 

Comment 30 Jul 2019

I know for a fact USC has an abysmal offensive line and UT’s isn’t much better as Ellinger was getting killed last year. 

I get wanting to see your son/grandson play every game but running back is the Cadillac position of OSU and he has some great underclass offensive linemen waiting on the wings. Hopefully his family can see the bigger picture. 

Comment 28 Jul 2019

Only thing I can think of is there was a character issue caught by the support staff or something fishy is going on with another program. 

Comment 25 Jul 2019

Ryan Day is going to have more success than Urban at OSU. Urban is more of a war general and I don’t think that translates easily to this era of kids. Don’t get me wrong, he made it work, but I feel like players will play more fast and loose while having fun doing it. The youth injected into the program will be a good thing.
