Was born at Riverside Methodist, which as most of you know, is pretty damn close to the horseshoe. My family lived in Columbus at the time, but eventually we moved to Northern Kentucky where I was raised at. My first memory watching the Buckeyes I was 7. It was the National Championship game against Miami. At kickoff my mom (knowing how good the Canes were and having just experienced the painful 90’s era of OSU football) turned and asked my dad, “so do we even stand a chance at winning tonight?” My dad, also still pessimistic after being heartbroken for the past decade, answered, “not really.” This wasn’t the first Ohio State game I watched, but it’s just the furthest one back I can remember. But as I’m watching this game I’m watching this Ohio State team go toe to toe with, after hearing my parents talk, what I thought was the greatest college football team of all team. Obviously you all know how that game ended and ever since that game I’ve been obsessed with Ohio State football and never looked back.
If I was required to put money on it, I’m going with Wisconsin. Last year just feels like an anamoly to me and Wisconsin will be back to being Wisconsin in 2019.
What’s the per unit cost for licensing fees, design fees, etc.? My guess is it’s marginal at best considering how much OSU branded merchandise Nike sells and as far as jerseys go, with the exception of alternate jerseys the basic Ohio State jersey doesn’t really change all that often. It’s changed once in my lifetime. There have definitely been design changes to the actual jerseys as far as the technology and fabrics that go in to it, but this is irrelevant to the jerseys being bought on DH Gate as well as the jerseys Nike is releasing for us to purchase, this only really applies to the jerseys the players wear. The only argument for why Nike charges $150 for jersey is because they can. Which I have zero problem with. Nike can and should be able to charge whatever the hell they want for any of their products. It’s up to me as a consumer about whether or not I want to pay that price or if there is a cheaper alternative. For me personally, the price isn’t as big of a factor as is wanting a jersey of a specific player advantage opposed to just a basic jersey with just a number. I believe at some point in time the NCAA will start compensating players for their name likeness. When that happens, I will gladly purchase an authentic jersey from Nike with whatever players name they have available. My fear is by the time I get to that age, I’ll be well past the age where I would feel comfortable wearing a jersey.
What do you work for Nike? I believe most of us think it’s absurd to charge $150 for a damn jersey that’s made in China, when we can get basically the same jersey also made in China for less than $20. If someone is making money on it for $20, imagine the markup Nike is making on it? I’m a capitalist at heart so I believe in free and open competition. Right now, I’m choosing DH Gate over Nike for my jersey needs. At the end of the day a jersey for us fans is just pieces of fabric sewn together. Now for other things like shoes then yeah I’m going authentic Nike stuff all the way because shoes have purpose and functionality that China can’t replicate. But no I’m not worried about the ethics of a company in the same marketplace as Nike.
I just recently picked up a Justin Fields Jersey and I have a real Nike Jersey and they are much more alike than these two. The scarlet is the exact same color.
I personally believe this is at least top 3 greatest gif of all time. It’s just so applicable to 11W, Twitter, etc. as well as real life. I make this face as well as the Jim staring at the camera after Michael says something ridiculous at least 5-6 times a day at work.
I can guarantee nothing on the site is authentic. It’s a counterfeit website. Anything with any functionality I would highly recommend staying away from.
Have purchase several jerseys from DH Gate and my only complaint is it usually takes about 3 weeks to get to you. But for less than $20 it’s well worth it. When you hold an authentic jersey up to it side by side you can definitely spot the differences but other than that you can’t really tell. Its nice to be able to get an Ohio State jersey with a player name on the back. If you are at a game and see a jersey with a name on the back there’s a 95% chance it came from DH Gate.
Hoak doesn’t fit what Eddie Gran wants to do at UK. The Eddie Gran offense is somewhat predicated on a QB being able to use his feet and Terry Wilson gave them that more than Hoak. It was just a bad scheme fit for Hoak at UK. Everyone around the UK program agrees that Hoak was the better pure passer.
So far all anyone has found is that ZS was offered a job at Bama and Urban convinced him to stay. Smith told us this on his podcast like 3 weeks ago...
Just got off a 2 hour plane ride. Opened Twitter as soon as we landed and yikes. Pretty sure I let out and audible, “fuck” that’s the whole plane could hear. Oops.
You do know it’s not blood right?
NY Strip is a great compromise between a ribeye and a filet.
I won’t dv, but this post kind of makes me want to.
The tenderness of a filet is what makes it a premium cut.
You get what you pay for. Sirloin is just an average steak. Nothing special about it. With a ribeye you get all of that marbling that provides great flavor. Filet you get an incredibly tender cut. A sirloin doesn’t really provide either. It just is what it is. There’s a reason you don’t see sirloin on the menus at upscale steakhouses. Not that it’s bad, because any steak is better than no steak, but sirloin just isn’t special in anyway.
I hate to be that guy, but Prime Rib isn’t a steak. A better analogy would be going from a ribeye or filet mignon to a sirloin.
To be fair in the first video that ball wasn’t throw by Haskins. You can see Haskins in the background on the other field. It looks like an assistant coach throwing that first ball.
That had to be a tough decision considering Coombs is the DB coach in Tennessee now.
Take the money. There are plenty of great free credit monitoring apps. Open up a credit card or two and earn those rewards. Use your credit card for purchases you were already making on your debit card every month anyways and don’t carry a balance. As long as you’re responsible, you’re really missing out on great rewards. Let the money you’re already spending every month start working for you.
Well I don’t know whether to be happy that I didn’t qualify or if I should be pissed that I don’t get $125.
It’s still bullshit no matters who’s mouth it comes out of.
It’s really annoying to hear people still recite that since The Game gets great ratings every year that keeping it at noon is the way to go. It’s not. The Game gets great ratings because it’s Ohio State and Michigan for Gods sake. You could start that game at midnight and it would still be one of the highest watched games of the year. You put these two programs on national television and people watch. Plain and simple. I don’t understand how someone could think that this matchup doesn’t deserve a prime time audience. It’s the biggest game in the sport year after year and yet it’s played when the other side of the country is just rolling out of bed. That’s asinine. Big time football football games deserve big time stages and the stage is always bigger under the lights. Despite how great The Game has been at noon, I think it’s crazy to believe it wouldn’t be even better under the lights.
It’s late November. It’s cold at noon and it’s cold at night. Who the hell cares? It’s colder in January, but yet that doesn’t stop them from playing NFL playoff games at night in Lambeau, Solider Field, MetLife, Heinz Field, etc. spare me the cold nights bullshit. That’s a lame excuse.
