Last time I was in an Applebees..... December 31, 2016 to watch the Fiesta Bowl.... In commerce Georgia, very close to the SC line.  I was in the area for a family reunion and the person who arranged the whole reunion rented a place with no cable and not internet.  WTF!?!??!?!

Hidden hot dogs is a great prank.  I once released 2 dozen crickets (cheap at the pet store) into some friends' dorm room.  They lived in squalor and didn't notice it for days.  Eventually, parts of that wing were evacuated & fumigated because of the cricket problem (oops!)

Thanks for this post, just what I needed.  Had never heard of a weighted blanket until I read this thread.  Just did some research and it is perfect for my wife.  A couple of clicks on Amazon and done.

I agree. Clemson vs aTm was not a blowout.  I've heard it mentioned several times, I think by Danny Kannell and Greg McElroy, that Dabo was asking Lawrence to do a lot more in the beginning of the season than he had last year, which explained the offense's relative struggles early in the season.  They said that Dabo was essentially forcing him to grow as a QB, and that the strategy has paid off in the last half of the season.  I consider both of those guys to be pretty good analysts (though Kannell loves to ruffle feathers on occasion), and I believe they both probably understand the QB position better than I ever could.

Just from watching, I think Clemson is a better football team now than they were in week 2 and if they played aTm in week 11 it would've been a blowout. 

I think this is the National Championship game, as I think these are the 2 most talented and best all around teams.  And I like the Buckeyes chances to win.

Thanks for pulling this. IMO the average is far less important than looking at the top end, because Ohio State and Clemson will each be the best team the other has played, by a fair margin.

The best sp+ defense Clemson has played is aTm at 24, which is respectable.  The Buckeyes have played 6 teams in the top 26 of sp+ defense.

We've blown out teams, but so has Clemson (with the exception of UNC).  Just because Clemson's best blowout win was against the #24 sp + defense doesn't mean they wouldn't also blow out PSU, Wisc, TTUN, etc.  

If Clemson had struggled through this schedule, that would tell me something different.  To me, though, it just looks like our offense is more battle tested than Clemson's.

And Wargor, to add to this, Millennials need to work about 10X the number of hours at minimum wage as Boomers did to pay to go to college, on average.

Boomers are also staying in the workforce longer,  which many attribute to being worse off financially than their parents were at retirement age. The effect of this is that, indirectly, recent college graduates and those early in their careers (millennials) have more trouble getting into & advancing in their careers (making more money) in ways that were not hurdles for previous generations.

I'm not blaming or pointing fingers, but pointing out that this an underlying reason that boomers have more household income, & more disposable income than gen X and Millennials.  And why that was true (and will be true) at different ages

Raise the price between the 40s, and lower the price in the endzones. 

I have a feeling changes like this will come relatively soon.  But it will look more like.... Make the seats between the 40's higher priced without lowering the cost anywhere else.

It won't be a way for some folks in the stadium to save money on tickets, it will be a way for the athletic department to increase prices and tell us it's allowing us to save money.

I agree with this wholly.  A detailed box score is the only thing 11W is missing with their football game coverage.

I have ATT for internet.  I got into a deal early when they were digging in our neighborhood and I have 300 mps speeds for $50/month. We can run multiple tv's, xbox, tablets, with no issues.

I have almost the same setup as you, and I love it just as much.  The only difference is I have the Roku Stick, which for $50 regular price, is a steal.  The Roku stick remote doesn't have the headphone plug, but you can use your phone as the roku remote and use your's phone's headphone plug if you wanted.

I've never seen that site, and it looks like there are good options on there.  But I would imagine that these are not officially licensed, "authentic" jerseys.  In fact, it's possible that they are coming from the same folks who are selling on DHGate or similar.  The jerseys on DHGate are probably significantly cheaper, though.

Michigan has a losing record against the Buckeyes in the lifetime of every living person born after October 20, 1906

If the Buckeyes take care of business, their matchup with Clemson will be the championship game (even if it happens to be in the semifinal). I feel like that game could go either way.

None of the other teams on that list are as complete as Ohio State or Clemson.

Folks are dogging on their offense, and rightfully so.  But over the last 6 games they have given up more than 35 points per game.  Granted, that was a pretty tough 6 game stretch, but their defense has not been up to usual standards.
