I have kids and have done the same thing you did multiple times. If your running in for 30-60 seconds to pay for gas, even a hot or cold day won't hurt them. Taking a kid or kids that are young through a gas station parking lot is more hazardous than leaving them in a locked car for a minute.

As long as the car is locked, there isn't an issue.

I remember rice at every meal (93 to 96), couldn't keep weight on unless we were in port. Chief's mess is probably a little better though.

EBITDA = Revenue – Expenses (excluding interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization)

Sales doesn't mean everything or anything if Expenses outweigh sales, our bonuses are calculated off a 2-3 goals and then weighted to get the final amount. The largest driver is EBITDA.

1.) Ash has one foot out the door. - So did Herman last year. Like crazy Jimmy H likes to say, "Coaches don't suit up and play"

2.) So do Zeke and Bosa and a bunch of other guys. - These guys seem to love tOSU, I don't see them quitting on this team.

3.) Adolphus isn't gonna play (nor should he, I would say). - It's a misdemeanor charge, he'll play after a public tounge lashing from Urban. I don't see it sticking, but that's just a hunch.

4.) I have to believe there's a general sense of disappointment that could easily become letdown over not being in the Playoff. - They will be in this to win it and show MSU was a fluke/bad play calling. We lost to Clemson because the backend of our defense couldn't defend against the pass or provide run support. I think we lost by 4/5 points in a shootout with a battered QB and we forgot to give Hyde the ball in the 4th (#fireherman)

Had just passed my drivers test and my parents let me take my mom's 1978 Buick station wagon (for you younger 11W's, it's the mini vans predecessor). My buddies and I went to the football game and then went go-karting. We met up with another group from school and when it was time to leave I had more people in my car than I had gone with. I'm driving up the road and the speedometer went out, so I slowed down and thought we were under the speed limit. Of course a few minutes later there are flashing lights behind us and I pull over...as we slow down I can hear a dragging sound. The cop comes up and looks in the window, rolls his eyes and asks how many people are wearing their seat belts.....the cop makes me turn in my seat and count the hands....14 (the wagon could seat 8). They didn't pull me over for speeding, every time I hit a bump the rear bumper would throw sparks.

Instead of taking my license, I got to spend a weekend (6 AM to 5PM) washing every police car in the garage inside and out....then I got grounded for a month.

Wait until they are teenagers. I've heard Dad's say that teenage girls act the way they do to prepare their fathers to send them off to college.

My 17 year old gives me fits.

That's cool, the Renegades were assigned to Nimtz during my deployment. I have a patch from them. Nothing like a F-14 at full power at night on the flight deck.

I used to get a kick out of the F-14 pilots taking shots at the F-18 pilots when they would do a post mission brief on the ships TV. The F-14 guys didn't think much of the 18's range.

Thanks Navy, this was always my favorite weapon....looked like a 50 gallon drum with fins. With it's range and three different kinds of radar it was a beast.

I had a brown shirt with the Checkmates let me sit in a 14 in the hangar bay once. After that I submitted a request chit once a week requesting a cat shot in a 14. Never panned out the way I hoped.

Read the article, I was on-board Nimitz the last time she deployed with an A-6 squadron. I always loved that plane, ugly 1950's technology. If you had ever read Flight of the Intruder (movie sucked) the author, Dean Coontz, flew them in Vietnam and described them to the T. Seeing them up close was awesome.

I agree, but Herman was an identified up and comer, not someone who had mediocre results at a power 5 school.

Never thought Beck was a good replacement for Herman. I don't recall a time in recent history that Nebraska has either set the world on fire offensively or put a decent QB in the NFL.
