I was absolutely triggered by that penalty.  The time/score wasn't shown on the GIF, but I vaguely remember us getting the ball back at the point in the game was a pretty big deal.  Roughing the kicker was a massive dong punch at that point.

Laments Corporate Things My best guess is that they dont have some sort of parent company/major financial backer and that classifies 11W as "independent".
Comment 12 Aug 2019

I think I commented when this came out.  We pulled the trigger on an 2018 Odyssey and it is awesome.  I was always anti-minivan but I don't feel soccer mommish driving this thing around at all.  It's awesome for road trips - automatic sliding doors are huge, 3rd row of seats completely folds down for additional storage.  It rides super smooth, has some giddy up if you need and looks cool.

I skimmed through almost all of the texts.  Really nothing of importance.  Lot of back and forth recruiting talk.  One thing I did note is that one of the texts alluded to a recruit possibly wanting something extra and Urban responded to tell the dad that we do things straight as an arrow and to expect nothing.  So that's a good thing I suppose.

Biggest piece of info was texts between Urban and Drake in January 2018 where Urban listed all the offers other coaches got and turned down. 

Certainly nothing in here that would bring anything to a crashing halt.  The email file had a ton of travel planning for games etc, hotel bookings and honestly a lot of spam garbage.

Same.  There haven't been a ton of starting RBs in recent memory from Wisconsin that I wouldn't have minded having with the Buckeyes.

Fucking A - I guess anything at this point is plausible.  One would think a 5 star running back would be above trolling recruiting services, but what the hell do I know anymore?

Appreciate the retort and it did make me feel smarter, so I will continue - thanks for the permission.

Adding drive time puts it in a little better perspective, I believe, than just throwing around flight times.  Again, Devil's Advocate (!!), but my grandparents were mega old school aren't weren't flying anywhere.  Going to Florida from Dayton? Pack up the Caddy, we're driving 17 hours with an overnight stop in there.  So unless anyone posted on the 11W recruiting board part 61 are Bijan Robinson's grandparents, there are a whole fuck ton of assumptions and guesses being thrown around as to what family discussions are happening, and who is traveling where, when and how. 

I'm not pretending to know or guess at anything.  My Devil's Advocate (!!!!), post was offering counterpoints to "WTF, there is like no diff between Austin and Columbus". 

Did that opinion offer enough insight for you, sir?

Devil's advocate here.  Tucson to Austin is a 13 hour drive and 893 miles.  Tucson to Columbus is a 28 hour drive and is 1,868 miles. 

So technically it is closer to home - by a considerable margin.  The distance from Tucson to Austin is like 400 miles shorter than Austin to Columbus.  I get that its only an additional 2 hour plan ride, but everyone saying it's not closer to home - I mean it just isn't true.
