All of Ohio is equally awesome and equal in Buckeye-ness. Whether it's ichigan touching Toledo, the home of the burning river, Cleveland, the partly Kentuckified Cincinnati, holes on the rust belt such as Dayton, Akron, or Youngstown, or dear old drunken Columbus, all are equally Ohioan!

Toledo for its war against that state up north, Rockin and Rollin Cleveland, the Queen City for being the jewel of the beautiful Ohio River, Dayton for giving the world flight, Akron giving Ohio Beanie Wells, Youngstown the Vest, and Columbus for THE Ohio State University!

I have a hard time leaving off Jamarco, Michael Jordan, and Jalyn Holmes. Dante Booker and Chris Worley are at the least 2nd team and belong in the discussion.

Just to play devil's advocate for a moment, one could argue that since all that money goes to the university, and the state, that they're basically just helping out countless of other programs in Ohio. I'm curious how much less the rest of the University would have to work with for sports that don't draw crowds, and educational programs that don't get big private donations.

I sure would have liked to have been exploited for a free education, with access to amazing facilities, advantages, tutors, and to come out of college debt free and with the prestige of putting on my resumes that I played football for The Ohio State University. 

Not saying these guys don't deserve a little more or the chance to make more, that's above my pay grade, but I can't say they're exploited. If you want to make the argument that they aren't compensated enough, I'll listen, but I just can't see how they're exploited.

I'm reminded of the speech from Patton; "Ohio State people are winners, they will not tolerate a loser."

Comment 10 Jul 2017

Since he has a concealed carry license, his biggest issue is that he didn't properly inform the police. Ohio law says that if a cop talks to you, you have to inform him immediately that you have a license and whether or not you are at that moment carrying. 

Example: If you get pulled over for your tail light needing a new bulb and the officer only intends to warn you as a courtesy and says "How are you doing tonight sir/ma'am?" before you say "I'm good" or "What seems to be the problem?" you keep your hands at 10 and 2 on the wheel and say "Officer, I have a conceal carry license and am carrying a firearm and it is _____." (on an ankle holster, in the glove box, in my jacket, etc.) Then the officer will instruct you on what to do. Usually just tell you to move slowly to get ID, etc. 

Also, most cops aren't jerks. I informed a officer who taught a religious study group I was part of every week that I was carrying and that I always do. He said I didn't have to inform him anymore as he wasn't worried about the people who get the permit and tell him about it. 

It sounds like Washington was careless in a sense but not violent. He just got forgot the rules here. If what we see here is all there is to it, then the worst should be getting his license suspended or revoked, and maybe some community service involving firearm safety.

While I hope you've had a happy birthday coach, you're only the second best person born on July 10th. My Mom is the first! However it is true that only the best, and those that destroy ttun are born in July!

Exactly. And the NCAA is just sore that someone made some money off of playing a game they 'regulate' and didn't give them a cut.
