Ohio against the World...  

“Evacuate? In our moment of triumph? I think you overestimate their chances.” Tarkin..

The Reds were a sound ball club with a foundation and culture that have changed with the wind.

go back to no facial hair, red stirrups and all black shoes (no logos).  But that ain’t gonna happen so keep hiring losers with no humility and lose.

Agreed. I am an OHIO AGAINST THE WORLD subscriber, but I’m exhausted with the Bama Clemson crybabying .....

until our house is in order, there is very little need to worry about outside distractions. 

Just win.  And Beat TTUN.

Clemson = FSU = Georgia

not top tier. Dangerous opponents yes...but not blue bloods.

Post marriage sex at that.  Congrats. Do not see this very often. A mom AND a dad.  Get some rest. It’s a marathon and the race just started.

I love your enthusiasm ....  35% base pay raise!

You  get a car!  And you get a car!  And you get a car!

The big winner is the US Treasury saying, “I’ll take 40% of that. Thank you”

This is not a Tate specific comment, but I want to share a story if I may (we all have one):

I was in the USAF.  I had a skill set the commander needed.  But like so many, I wanted to be put into the BEST job that better suited my future promotion potential (I was late-rated and would need help for promotion).  I was needed as a leader in the worst section of our squadron.  It was not a fun job, there were few public victories and the job was not going to get me promoted.   I bitched and complained to all of my friends seeking some "buy in" that I was personally treated "in the wrong" and that I should be "entitled" to a better position.

One day, my best friend said, "you need to put yourself in the Commander's shoes.  What would YOU do?  put yourself in a position that others are better suited for to help your career, or put you where you are needed to better his squadron now and today"

At the end of the day, my career did not turn out as I had HOPED or planned, but I did have a stellar flying career and became an outstanding instructor pilot to many young upcoming pilots, BUT I never held command.  I know I know I know.  SOB story.   But here is are my points:

1.  I got to fly for the greatest Air Force in the world, and operate some bad-ass, high tech, equipment.  (I wore the Scarlet and Gray, got gold pants, and played inside Ohio Stadium)

2.  Athough, I was not a commander (star QB), others looked up to me as a LEADER (smartest guy in the QB room) and I cherished the opportunity

3.  I realized these facts, and decided that I needed to be the best instructor pilot (future college COACH, not star NFL player)

4.  There was a spot for me on the team, it just wasn't the one I wanted at the time (the coach has to put the team first, not individuals...someone may even have to eat a shit sandwich from time to time....it's not personal)

5.  It all worked out in the end.  I am now retired (have a very lucrative airline pilot job) and although I was upset for a long time, everything works out for the best.

Thank you all.   Go Buckeyes!!!!

Strasbourg (the city) does have 9 districts.  One of them IS in Germany.  Although Strasbourg, France is correct....the poster may have truly been in Germany.

I am thinking they may be in France, but I want to give the poster the benefit of the doubt.

I lived in the Black Forest for 3 years just outside of Stuttgart.  Nice place to have lived but I am so glad I am back in America.  It's a 3 beer discussion...way too much socialism for my liking.

Agreed.  Now that there is “blood in the water” (the Russian’s cut), perhaps some of that SEC, I mean Alabama, magic is starting to lose its luster. 

Bama is still holding nearly all of the cards but not quite the full deck. Now would be a good time to schedule them by some B1G team.  I would like to see a home and home but if not, just play them in Bama and be the underdog, I’m looking at you Sparty. 

If Bama were to lose at HOME to a B1G team then the wheels would start to depart the wagon.
