For all that is good and holy in the world, get on your hands and knees and crawl on the basement floor to make sure there is no water. Schedule a walkthrough when it is pouring -- do whatever you can to make sure it is dry. Also approach it like everyone is out to get you. Home Inspectors do not care about you, realtors do not care about you, the sellers do not care about you. You are a dollar sign with legs to them. 

If you do happen to move in and find that your basement also doubles as a swimming pool (and you're in the area), DO NOT CALL BASEMENT DOCTOR -- those guys have what amounted to a 50% markup. Call Paul Rogers -- lifetime warranty that is transferable and he'll do it in 1 day. 

If you can't tell...I've been through hell.

My God...or spring semester ended and he realized he wanted to be closer to his family. It seems like everyone on this thread thinks this is some subversive shit he’s trying to pull because he’s not starting. I know our lives revolve around OSU football but I’m gonna cut the 18/19 year old some slack.

Jesus dude. It sounds like he’s homesick not entitled. And here we are saying to get over it so we can have a backup qb...I think the “I’m more than a football player” should be telling. 

Comment 24 Mar 2019

I’m gonna guess we’ll probably have to teach Laleb how to pass out of a double as I’m guessing other teams will follow that blueprint next year.

Anyone know why we got away from the inside/outside game with Ahrens that helped us whalop Iowa? Would have loved to have seen him and in this game.

70-7 vs Rice in ‘96. I was 7 and it was the first game my dad took me to. I know I watched before that and I remember my dad saying I could name every player on the ‘94 squad. But that memory sticks out as the first.

Comment 17 Feb 2019

He does this. He’s been T’d up this season and has fought for his guys. Holtmann being outcoached is such a lazy criticism of this team. The only players that are truly his guys are freshmen. Say what you will about Woods, but at some point you need bodies. The fact that Holtmann has made Andre Wesson even remotely serviceable should be a testament to his ability to coach and develop players, something that was done maybe one time in the past 10 years.

Comment 15 Feb 2019

We had a player in high school back in the day who got mop up minutes, but I'll never forget the one play where he was an outlet for a breakaway starting at half court. He put his head down to dribble, and ran as fast as he could straight into the baseline, and, upon seeing the new floor coloration, (indicating a baseline) leaped in the air, and threw the ball backward into a defender, essentially saving the ball from himself...CJ Jackson reminds me of the next iteration of this.

lolz "too young." This happened less than 10 years ago.

Comment 08 Feb 2019

the turnovers are absolutely insane. I often am watching through my hands, as I remember being coached in elementary school to come to the ball/don't wait on the ball when receiving a pass. I'm also pretty sure Andre Wesson tried to will a ball through a defender last night during a press. 

Comment 08 Feb 2019

Loved the commentary when Kaleb was football tackled to the ground... -- "Ohh I dunno about that call. Looks like a good basketball play to me?" ???? 

The 4 whistles in 25 seconds was pretty egregious and there were some extremely...extremely late whistles. 

I'm fine if a crew wants to call it tight, but holy hank, then call it tight both ways. 

Comment 24 Jan 2019

This is well put. Specifically, the 5th foul on Kaleb is what set me off. The Purdue defender essentially rammed right into his back to get position on the loose ball which, i remember correctly, knocked him off balance and he fell on said purdue player. It's gotten to a point where if he breathes they call a foul, and he gets absolutely nothing when he goes to the rim.

Comment 23 Jan 2019

I think you throw in a lineup with Woods/Ahrens, Washington, Muhammad, K. Wesson & Ladee. Obviously, you need a PG in there, but I would really like to see a young lineup with the mentality of have fun and learn to score in college. Jackson is so hot and cold and A.Wesson is adding little-to-no value at this point.

Could also go small with Woods, Wesson, Washington, Muhammad, Jallow as well

Regardless, you need LeDee on the floor as he's pretty much the only true forward to replace Young and he seems to have the mental makeup to benefit from extra playing time.

Someone needs to step up as a primary scorer.

Comment 21 Jan 2019

I would honestly take Luther aside and tell him to start taking some shots. This team needs some sort of lengthy outside presence and he seems to have the minutes and the ability to do so -- their may be some growing pains, but it'd be good experience going into next year, and it will fill that Keita-lite role.
