Many of these “traffickers” are physicians at your local family practice. Overprescribing is a major issue and why many folks from “normal” families become addicted after suffering something as simple as a broken bone. 

It’s a lot more complicated than just saying no. Many addicts just want to quit but their brain chemistry has other plans. It’s a different type of hell that neither you or I can imagine.

I practice in the field and luckily it’s being more regulated but there are still plenty of bad physicians, especially where I was raised in rural Ohio. 

Ultimately, a young life was lost and I pray for his family. My apologies for hijacking the thread.

Mike Adams, Shugarts, etc loved to party and they didn’t like Urban’s disciplined approach. You could get away with a lot under Tress. 

Comment 27 Nov 2019

The app is terrible and the stream frequently cuts out. I also sometimes have ad overlays playing simultaneously overtop of the radio hosts. 

Comment 26 Nov 2019

I quit fantasy football and sports betting in general about two years ago. I always allotted a certain amount of entertainment money that I was comfortable with losing but I would stay up late sweating games or player performances and just figured it wasn’t worth it. I’m much happier after walking away.

Those made popular through football should take the Archie route and show up to alumni events, speaking engagements, etc to share a few stories and shake hands. I believe this will be Eddie’s next gig if Archie retires.

Comment 21 Nov 2019

Former OSU coaches and players will be the popular pick amongst fans but you absolutely need someone with healthcare experience. I was shocked to see how much revenue the hospital brings it compared to football. 

Not to mention, OSU is opening a new immuno-oncology core that will be developing and possibly manufacturing personalized medication via gene or cell therapy. This would be a cash cow if it’s successful. 

Comment 20 Nov 2019

I started on two years of varsity at receiver and corner. We had mostly volunteer coaches and I’ve learned so much more watching the game on TV than I did in any practice. Our coaches were super old school and mainly focused on conditioning. 

I, too didn’t mind contact but did not seek it. I’m just way too calm of a person to switch to a killer mentality.

UGA-Florida is just bad football. Both QBs are terrible. Trask (sp) took a snap and shuffled backwards 19 yards on first down until he was ultimately sacked. Fromm can’t hit a receiver until he is stationary, sitting down in a zone at a max of 10 yards from the LOS. Most of this can be blamed on coaching. OSU would wax both. Minnesota would give them a game.

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.

Comment 19 Sep 2019

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.

Comment 11 Sep 2019

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?

Comment 29 Aug 2019

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!

Comment 17 Aug 2019

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.
