Comment 13 Nov 2016

I think the Buckeyes should be ranked #2 this week.  I have a feeling that the CFP Committee may try to keep them lower to provide an out for conference champions to jump them.  I think we will see how they view the Buckeyes prospects of not winning the B10 this week by whether or not the Buckeyes are ranked #2.  On the positive side, if both the Buckeyes and PSU win out and PSU loses to Wisky in the B10 Championship, and Oklahoma wins the B12, then the Buckeyes would have wins over two power 5 conference champions (both on the road).  None of this matters if the Buckeyes lose, though.  Beat MSU and UM first, and worry about everything else later.

Comment 06 Nov 2016

I was cautiously optimistic yesterday that the Buckeyes would put up some points against Nebraska.  I didn't see 62-3, but I suspected a better performance.  I hope this will serve as a springboard for the last few games of the season.

Oklahoma has no defense. Indiana played better.  Oklahoma was not a great win (good, but not great).  The Wolverines only beat Wisconsin by one score, but they looked much more dominant.  They outgained Wisconsin by about 200 yards, and they could have easily won by 2-3 scored if not for stupid mistakes.  So, I guess I am basing my opinion on common opponents: the Wolverines have looked more dominant in beating the two of the same opponents.  I understand Wisconsin had 2 weeks to prepare for the Buckeyes and it was in Madison, so that may explain some of the differences.

Comment 16 Oct 2016

I know this is blasphemy, but I don't think the Buckeyes are the second best team right now.  After watching how much the team struggled in the passing game for the second straight week and the defense struggled with fundamentals, I would have to rate scUM higher.  Their defense has been dominant, and their offense is beginning to look competent.  I think the Buckeyes still have better athletes and higher potential, but the Wolverines have been playing better football.  There's still time to clean up some things, and the team may have grown a bit during the second half in Madison.  I hope the Buckeyes begin the same level of improvement after this game that they experienced after PSU in 2014.

The safety was overturned after review.  I believe the booth ruled it was a fumble and recovery by the lineman instead of a forward pass. 

Comment 09 Aug 2015

I was in banking for 6 1/2 years, and worked as an intern in the corporate legal department of a large debt purchaser/collector during law school.  I've seen the other side of it.  Usually, the numerous calls will stop if you just answer the phone and have a conversation with them about your willingness and ability to pay.  In fact, under the FDCPA, if you answer the phone and tell them to stop calling and that you can't/won't pay, they have to stop calling (other than for certain notification purposes).

Regarding Sallie Mae, I think they provide a much needed service.  I couldn't have gone to law school if not for Sallie Mae loans.  The real problem is not the lenders who step in to fill the gap, but the extreme cost of a college education that necessitates student loans.  But I do not want to engage a political debate on that front.

Comment 28 May 2015

It's hard to believe you were downvoted for this.  Saying Northern Illinois might be better than Indiana, Maryland, and Rutgers isn't that big of a stretch considering the Huskies have won several MAC championships over the past few years and played in a BCS game a couple of seasons ago.

Why use symbols instead of letters for the word "ball"?  It's not a profane word.

Comment 29 Apr 2015

Everyone says this.  I watched the video about what goes into hotdogs.  It's a bit gross to watch, but I never have problems eating them.  I think once you've killed, skinned, and cleaned your own food, not too much seems that disgusting anymore.

Comment 26 Apr 2015

Now, that's not completely accurate.  They have an Iowa transfer to hold down the QB spot.  And they also brought in a 3 star RB who they were much more excited about than Weber, so it's OK he signed with tOSU.  You've got to keep up.

Comment 25 Apr 2015

I love both the Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged.  I haven't read much else from her other than a couple of essays.  But those two books alone are full of great quotes.

Comment 25 Apr 2015

I wish I knew how to make a gif.  This is good, but I like Roark from The Fountainhead.   A guy trying to sabotage Roark asks, "What do you think of me now?"  Roark's reply: "I don't think of you at all."  

EDIT:  I had some of the words wrong, but the basic idea is the same.

This is a simple issue for me.  It comes down to whether tOSU deceived Weber (by knowingly withholding pertinent info).  If so, you rectify it by offering an unconditional release from his LOI.  It's not only fair to Weber, it will help with potential negative recruiting later.  If tOSU didn't deceive him, you clear the air and put an end to the speculation.
