Happy to help. If you go the route of zero interest financing through them, the Peloton basically breaks down to $98/month ($59 for the bike for 39 months + $39 for the class subscription with up to 3 users) for the first 3.25 years then the loan is paid off and you just pay for the subscription. Since they offer a free 30-day in-home trial, I would recommend trying it that way to see if you like the classes and the structure / community. I got linked up to their PowerZone program pretty early on, which is more of a cycling training program (versus a spinning program), and really like it. I also like that they have a ton of other training content from running, body weight fitness, strength training, yoga, and more. My wife doesn’t like cycling as much as I do, but she likes the yoga and boot camp classes that are included in our subscription.
I can’t recommend Peloton enough. I’ve had one for 4 months now and am addicted — after not riding for several years, I now ride 5-6 days a week. It’s not as much about the bike (there are plenty of nice ones out there) but more so about the programming and community (lots of virtual riding groups). They have a free 30-day in-home trial. No strings attached. Might consider giving it a try.
Agreed — even in 1995, 96, 98, and a number of the teams in the early 2000s, there were some dominating, first team All-American defensive players. Just not sure who else was also out there at the time on other teams who ended up winning the award. But yes, hard to imagine Shawn Springs, Antoine Winfield, Andy Katzenmoyer, Chris Gamble (on the defensive side), Mike Doss (maybe a stretch here), and the loads of other talent that followed them were all passed up for the award.
Only awarded since 1995 according to the article, so limited sample size. Guessing Jack Tatum among many others would have won it if the award was around when he/they were playing.
I went upstairs and put on my custom #2 jersey that was a gift from a friend earlier in the season. I wore it for PSU and TTUN so I had planned to wear it for this game, but never got around to putting it on. After halftime, I knew that was a costly mistake so inrighted the wrong!
I know it always comes down to politics and perception, but Dobbins has as good of a claim to a NYC Heisman ceremony invite as any Buckeye. He has been our workhorse and at times overlooked because of Fields’ and Young’s excellence. Hope all three get an invite to the ceremony.
What section is dedicated to OSU fans? I plan to go this year and want to sit with other OSU fans so we can celebrate together.
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!
Gotcha...good to know. Thanks for the heads up.
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!
Win out and we’re in. Wish others in the conference would be elite, but I’m just fine with the Buckeyes being elite all by themselves.
100% agree! Hype and hope don’t win football games. Discipline and execution do. Hoping the team will stay grounded, focused, and aggressive. Could be a very special season if they do!
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.)
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.
Interesting. Thought he stayed at LSU because of his heritage there.
Just glad we have more than one option. LR is a pretty decent news site. Glad I can still follow Birm too.
Not a name I know, but if Day likes him, that’s good enough for me.
If this year with Haskins and last night's CFP Championship Game taught us anything, it's to get the talent on the field no matter how old they are. Let your players make great plays. Hopefully the coaching staff was watching closely and we don't revert to the previous traditions that rewarded seniority.
Great backstory on how Gundy found him originally. I think someone posted this in a different thread, but thought I would repost now that he’s been hired at tOSU.
