I was saying that before they lost Brady and Aranda. The Coach O story is great, but he needs a strong supporting cast. I think we’ll see a big ole regression to the mean with LSU.
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."
US military personnel in Bhagdad took .762 rounds to the tops of their heads the night Iraq beat Iran in soccer. AK47 celebratory fire into the night sky.
Many perfectionists lead a miserable existence, because so few are truly perfect.
The comment I responded to stated that Meyer was “calling out the conference.” In reality, he’s calling out himself for starting that bullshit.
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.
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.
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.
Actually, it’s an assault consummated by a battery. Always has been.
Urban Meyer started Chicken Shit Saturday when he was at UF.
When you point a finger at someone, there are three fingers pointing back at yourself.
I arrived in Twin Cities a month or two after the I-35 bridge collapse. I had employees who had just crossed the bridge, felt the rumble, and saw a dust cloud in their review mirror. We also knew of people who weren't so lucky.
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.
Student tickets are cheap. Our oldest is a junior, and he paid about $180 for season tickets. That's less that face value for The Game for everyone else.
Exactly. Why do people keep conflating analytic systems like FPI and SP+ with rankings?
2015 Ohio State Buckeyes vs 2015 Alabama Crimson Tide
Where? I haven't been able to find it.
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.
Ironic, your user name doesn't imply that pants are required.
