27-32 mph wind gusts between 12-3p won’t help at all either.  Thankfully Central Ohio weather is hardly predictable, but still doesn’t sound good.  Eerily reminiscent of MSU 2015...worst game and weather I’ve ever sat through in my 30 years of attending OSU games.  Let’s hope the weather holds off long enough for us to build a big lead after a blowout 2nd quarter (which seems to be the trend this year).

Thanks for the Q&A.  Interesting and informative format.  
 

One clerical item:  spellcheck Egbuka’s name.  At times, you spelled it Egbuka and at other times, you spelled it Egubka.  I recognize it is a less common name, but just thought I would point it out so you could fix it in case he or any family members happen to read it and feel offended.  
 

Keep up the good work!

Hoping FOX will do a big show on campus like they did for the Red River Rivalry.  Don’t care what ESPN does, just that the Bucks get the media attention they deserve in the long run.

A picture is worth a thousand words!  We sat behind the bench in the first row for the game.  Some Northwestern alum and a fellow Buckeye who formerly played Center kept remarking about how big #79 was — literally stood head and shoulders above some other OL players.  They couldn’t believe he was a true freshman.  It was my first time seeing him up close and he made a huge impression.  Scary!

if you're willing to drop some cash, the Wynn has the only course on the Strip and is a very nice experience.  No clubs or shoes required, they will give them to you as part of the package.  Last I recalled, it was somewhere in the neighborhood of $495/person, so not cheap, but convenient location and top-shelf experience with great views.  I've also played up near the JW Marriott Resort in Summerlin and it was a good experience but a bit more of a drive (half hour or so).  There's a TPC course there is that highly rated as well as a Jack Nicklaus designed course (Bear's Best).  Enjoy!

Seriously??  Saban had not one, but two 5-star QB’s leave the program in the same year!  I don’t think anyone has a problem with people looking to make sure they get to display and employ their talents (nor do they fault the coaches for continuing to stockpile talent)—it’s way the world works.  But it’s all about the manner in which you exit.  One thing you learn quickly in the business world—you never burn a bridge because you never know if you might need to use it again one day!

NCAA and their sub-fiefdoms (conferences) are so hypocritical.  They always talk of putting the student-athlete first, but it is clearly only true when it aligns with their monetary interests.  Kids should be able to go anywhere and play anywhere they want without restrictions--just like the coaches.

What’s the story behind the tax case and what is its conclusion?  (For those of us not in the know.)

Comment 13 Jan 2019

Interesting study.  If they are looking to take their analysis to the college level, I would like to see the analysis on running Braxton or JT Barrett instead of a marquee RB (i.e. Carlos Hyde or Zeke) in short down and distance situations.

Just glad we have more than one option.  LR is a pretty decent news site.  Glad I can still follow Birm too.

Get yourself to The Filling Station for some great beer and pizzas.  Also, I agree with previous posts...you’re going to love it up there.  Just too bad TC is considered part of TSUN, it’s a really beautiful place.

No amount of money could truly compensate these victims.  But since money is being doled out, the settlement number seems light for many reasons.  As a data point, Penn State University paid out $109 million to 35 victims in the Jerry Sandusky scandal, which averages $3.1M per victim. The $425 million being paid to the known 332 victims in this case only averages $1.2M per victim.  Not sure why there is such a discrepancy, but it's likely MSU wants to hide behind a seemingly large headline number here without acknowledging the amount should be larger.  Sad this even needs to be discussed.  I hope the victims can find healing through other means.

I don’t watch the NBA much, but have to agree with your analysis.  The guy sure seems to have some special coaching wizardry despite not always having the strongest players.

Lindey’s patio on a nice evening is unbeatable.  The restaurant is in German Village so you can stroll around before or after and take in some of the historic scenery.  Enjoy!
