The article kept glitching for me, so I had to stop reading.  Did they mention why Notre Dame (and many other cathedrals of that era) was in a near constant state of construction?  Municipalities could only begin taxing building owners (in this case the church) once the building was completed. So, in one of the earliest tax evasion loopholes, construction on large Gothic cathedrals would continue for decades, because "well, it's not quite finished, yet."

The American Conference was better than the ACC and the PAC 12 South on average this season. Most of the teams in AAC came from the old Big East, which had an automatic BCS berth prior to the CFP.  Power Six.

It's not a female reporter. It's a male in a locker room full of other male athletes where smacking people on the ass is universally accepted...

And now that male is Jerry Sandusky. Still OK?

Don't hit people on the ass.  It's not OK.

Injury is not an element of the offense, nor is intent to cause injury. 

Battery

At common law, an intentional unpermitted act causing harmful or offensive contact with the "person" of another.

Battery is concerned with the right to have one's body left alone by others.

Battery is both a tort and a crime. Its essential element, harmful or offensive contact, is the same in both areas of the law.

By definition, that’s exactly what it is. If that same cop came up and did that to OBJ after a game there’d be social media outrage. 

Comment 16 Jan 2020

There’s a reason to press charges for this. A cop getting hit from behind has no idea what’s happening and has every right to draw his weapon. You don’t sneak up and hit someone from behind who’s armed, I don’t care how ‘soft’ you think it is.

Howdy, Tex (did I do that right?). Glad to have you on board.  Always nice to have new members throw out an introductory thread.

Sounds like we've had opposite lives to a very small extent. I was born and raised a Buckeye on campus. Left for the Naval Academy after high school, spent about a year in Corpus Christi, TX for flight training, and ended up back at Wright-Patt (Fairborn, Oh) for a twilight tour.

JK gets it.  If you think Cowherd was serious about that statement, you haven't been paying attention. He's trolling Texas and the college football establishment that gives teams like LSU credit for "quality wins" when they beat 7-5 Texas.  He's satire is delivered deadpan and people take him serious, which makes it genius.  The fact that someone started a thread about it proves the point.

OSU's schedule has definitely changed over the years; there's no denying it.  Go back and look at some of the OOC schedules they used to play.

In 1986, the Buckeyes played Bama in the Kickoff Classic, then @ Washington, and at home versus Colorado and Utah (before the Utes were competitive). 3 out of 4 were legitimate teams.

In 1995, the year Eddie George won the Heisman, the Buckeyes played #22 Boston College, #18 Washington, @ Pitt and #15 Notre Dame. Not a single, non-Power Five team in the OOC, all but one were ranked, and one game on the road.

Outside of the OU games a couple of years ago, the Buckeyes haven't played too many competitive OOC games.

Not gonna lie, having the FIL in Columbus has been one of the big reasons we haven't balked at going to games over the past few years.  Mrs. Navy is already there to see him every other weekend, so it's no big deal for us to crash in the spare bedroom in his apartment. That knocks off lodging and breakfast on game days. Pick up a Tommy's Pizza after the game, eat dinner with my FIL and then head back to Dayton.
