The biggest problem is our (collective) fear of the unknown. Until we know more about this particular coronavirus, we will continue to do what humans have always done with the unknown...panic. Hopefully, this won’t turn into some sort of twisted Twilight Zone episode where our fear and anger leads us to turn on each other.

I give him props all day long for recruiting. Some of Cooper’s teams were just a talented—for their time—as Urban’s teams. The problem with Coop is he really didn’t know what to do with all that talent. And I really disliked his coaching style, which was more corporate managerial than collaborative. He rarely knew his players’ names and insisted that he wasn’t there to coach the players, he was there to coach the coaches.

I don’t hate him, because I agree he’s been a true Buckeye.

I agree. I remember when the networks had separate divisions for news and entertainment. The old news guys (and yeah, they were almost all white men) came mostly from the newspaper world, where you were supposed to at least try to pretend to separate their personal opinions from their stories. In the late 70s/early 80s, though, the networks merged the news division into the entertainment division. Before, news had its own budget and while it was nice if it made money, it was ok if it didn’t. After the merging, it became all about revenue. Now it’s all about clicks, likes, and shares.

This. Been married more than 30 years, and I hate Valentine’s Day. Jacked-up prices, overcrowded restaurants, cultural pressure to buy crap no one needs...feh. Hubby does things for me when I really need him, not when Hallmark tells him to.

Air traffic control kept telling the pilot “you’re too low, you’re too low.” (Per the NY Times.) Right now they’re calling it a CFIT (controlled flight into terrain). Same as what happened to JFK Jr.  In cloudy/foggy conditions it’s easy for pilots to get disoriented and lose track of which way is up. Should never have taken off; the LAPD had grounded their copter fleet for a reason. Very sad.

As a long-time, long-suffering Bengals fan (RIP Sam Wyche, btw) I hope Joe gets in there and turns that dumpster fire around. My rational side, though, suspects that as long as the Bengals are owned by Mike Brown he’ll find some way to turn gold into lead.

Kinda why I didn’t want Dwayne Haskins to go to that idiotic Dan Snyder and his shitshow.

Agreed that the new Union is a lovely place. I will always have fond memories of the older version. I saw a lecture by Jerry Lucas on how to increase your memory, watched Archie and Woody joking around at a ballroom banquet, and watched my dad get a distinguished teaching award at a dental school banquet. Most memorable? Probably the time my roommate and I were making the rounds of the bars late one night. She really had to go, everything was closed, so she dropped trou and obeyed the call of nature on the Ohio Union lawn...only to get a ticket from the University police for public indecency. I probably should have tried to advocate on her behalf or something but I was too busy laughing...and part of me suspected the cop was enjoying the hell out of it because my roomie was a knockout! : )

My dad was a member of the President’s Club (and a faculty member) when they demolished old University Hall. All the PC members got souvenir bricks from the old Hall. I still have Dad’s. I’d post a pic of it here if I could! Dad had classes there in the Fifties and said it was a rathole (literally).

Looking back, it’s unbelievable how much talent those Buckeye teams had. We should have had at least one NC under Coop. So frustrating. There was just something missing from the Cooper regime; some extra oomph he couldn’t find.

The clip was great. And it was good to see Korey Stringer on the sidelines again...

Let’s not forget their douche fanbase that pelted TBDBITL with bottles of pee (who the hell dreams that up, anyway?), leading our band director to declare we were never going back to that hellhole:

Penn State fans worshipping at the altar of JoePa make North Koreans shake their heads in wonder.
