MEMBER SINCE   August 20, 2006

Jason founded the site in late summer of 2006 after his wife grew tired of his constant Buckeye chatter. With a fifth grade command of the English language, it's a minor miracle that people discovered this site, let alone frequent it.

He lives in Chicago, but misses the friendly scarlet and gray-clad people of his native Ohio.

I agree. I think we're going to see a lot of other conferences doing the same thing and it's far too early to know how good of a commissioner he is right now. I can say that entities do not like to voluntarily give up the nearly $800M the Big Ten would pull in from having a football season, so it's not like they're just doing it to piss off fans.

On May 3, 1980, Cari Lightner, a 13-year-old girl, was killed by a drunken hit-and-run driver at Sunset and New York Avenues in Fair Oaks, California. The 46-year-old driver, who had recently been arrested for another DUI hit-and-run, left Cari's body at the scene.[4] Cari's mother, Candace (Candy) Lightner, organized Mothers Against Drunk Driving and subsequently served as its founding president. A 1983 television movie about Lightner garnered publicity for the group, which grew rapidly.

Where is the part about a college being liable for that? I think I've had enough debate with Buster Bluth for today.

So there's a long history of schools being sued by students who were in car wrecks on their own time? The car wreck comment was absolutely a weird semantics gotcha, no matter what you're trying to say now.

Nobody is disputing the fact that people tolerate nominal risk in their day-to-day lives, like driving a car for instance. All I'm saying is that schools are being incredibly hesitant due to liability concerns. It's honestly not hard to see.
