Tampa isn't exactly Texas either but most if not all BBQ places offer more than just ribs and pulled pork. JMHO

I cook BBQ a LOT (have done BBQ comps too) and I know how hard good BBQ is to do. In a commercial application, it is 10 times more difficult. I was in the restaurant biz for a long, long time and know the issues presented by trying to pump food out all day, every day. Props to Eli's for doing well for what they do.

I haven't been to Cincy since '98. Went there the day after watching the Game. The Bengals were playing the Ravens and we were wondering around before the game and saw the Raven's boarding their team bus. Harbaugh was signing autographs and I shouted to him "How about those Buckeyes?" He looked at me and gave me a stupid grin, as he is wont to do

Lots of crazies out there. I have access to a gun wherever I go. Not going to stay home like a hermit because I feel the need to potentially protect myself or my family. If everyone who carried took your advice, only the criminals would be about

The first black family I remembered moving in was in the early to mid 70's. The dad was a prof at OSU and the son was an excellent soccer player. I believe the family was the Smallwood's. Some asshole drove by their house and sent a shotgun blast through their front window. My uncle was on the UA city council at the time and was appalled. The city council offered a $5,000 reward for the capture of the jerkoff who fired the blast but I don't believe anyone was ever apprehended. When I was a senior, there were two black girls I remember as sophomores and a nice family moved 3-4 house down from us. Kids were good athletes

We lived on the 4th of July parade route and always had huge parties. Great memories

Yep, from the Freep: Detroit Lions left tackle Taylor Decker underwent shoulder surgery on Monday for an injury he suffered last week and will miss at least the rest of the team's off-season program.Detroit Lions left tackle Taylor Decker underwent shoulder surgery on Monday for an injury he suffered last week and will miss at least the rest of the team's off-season program.

The line at 5Dimes is tOSU -230 against Towson, pretty heavy favorites. The laxers have beaten the other three teams in the field, but have a one goal loss to Maryland to boot. 

The Buckeyes are the third favorite at +260. Maryland is the fav at +115. Denver is +255 and Towson is +635.  

Withers was 11-2 from the faceoff dot against Towson earlier in the year in a 6-3 win. If Withers can dominate like that again, the Buckeyes should win. The weather was brutal in the game against Towson earlier in the year,you can see snow piled up on the sidelines in the highlight video. Temp was 24

The shitty thing is our house is being tented for termites this weekend and I can't DVR the game (or any other game). Headed to a sports bar to watch but I like going back and seeing the play is slo mo

Oh well

tOSU plays Sunday at 5, not Saturday. Game is on ESPNU

Buckeyes have never made it past the second round, would be huge to make it to Championship Weekend

If Withers can continue his domination from the FO dot AND the Buckeyes can cut down on their turnovers, they will be a tough out in the B1G tourney as well as the NCAA tourney. The only other FOGO he has not destroyed is Baptiste from Denver, who has a sick .743 FO winning %. Withers is 3rd in the NCAA with a .683%. Withers was 19-26 against Johns Hopkins FOGO's and that translates into a lot more possessions. tOSU is 29th in the NCAA in turnovers per game, a stat that has to improve. The Buckeyes rank 6th in GAA and could have been better with fewer TO's. Hopefully Carey can continue his stellar play in goal.

IIRC, tOSU has never advanced past the second round on the NCAA tourney. I have a good feeling that this year could be the year they go deeper in the tourney

The problem with "recruiting more offensive linemen" is that OL can only do one thing, play OL. Other positions i.e. LB, DB, WR, etc can play special teams. Remember Corey Smith against 'Bama? Several huge ST tackles. Teams only have 85 schollies to give, you can't have 20 schollies tied up in the OL, max is 14-15. The problem is when you have under performing OL they take schollies away from guys that can contribute
