This is a really bad take. Noon games are good for Ohio State (they rarely lose them), are good for me as a fan (I have all afternoon and evening to get stuff done), and were my favorite games to attend as a student. While the night games feel a little more special, the argument that it reduces home-field advantage seems asinine, especially in November. Like I suppose we should be sorry that there are only 106,000 drunk, screaming fans in the relative warmth of the sun instead of 107,000 drunk, screaming fans in the freezing cold?

He has amazing range and good hands, but seemed to have trouble running routes and separating from DBs all year. I wish him all the luck in the world, but it's difficult to see how this doesn't cost him millions of dollars. I can't see him being drafted higher than the 7th round, if at all, based on what we've seen. Doesn't mean he can't ball out in the league though, so fingers crossed for him.

Rookie move, Stephen. If the professor is over 15 minutes late, you can leave without penalty. 

As someone who taught at OSU, BGSU, and now IU, I can say that this is a popular misconception. Most universities don't have an official policy on this, and most syllabi don't explicitly cover it.

It's referring to this portion of the law:

"No person shall operate a motor vehicle so as willfully to elude or flee a police officer after receiving a visible or audible signal from a police officer to bring the person's motor vehicle to a stop."

Attempting to avoid a checkpoint (which is a visible signal from a police officer) counts as willfully eluding.

A couple of folks have said this must be an age thing. I'm 33, and I think these are pretty sweet. 

Also, what's with people saying they're not intimidating? There are exactly zero football uniforms in the entirety of the world that are intimidating, so why would this one be any different?
