Vegas sets betting lines based on perceived betting patterns, not necessarily who they think is the better team.  Once they lose a game or two, watch how they won't be favored anymore.

I played (and beat) Johnny Archer in a game of nine ball. 

Also ran in road races against (sort of) Bill Rogers, Frank Shorter and a whole host of world class athletes. Road racing is about the only sport you can compete against the best in the world (even if you get dusted).

This year's team will have two of the best recruiting classes in OSU history ready to assume major roles on this team. I expect great things this season. Day being a first year HC and the new defensive staff should not be seen as negatives but huge strengths of this team. We have a hungry coach (versus one that was severely handicapped last year) and a new defensive staff (instead of the one that coached the worst defense in OSU history). Don't see why people are concerned about the coaching.

+1 to offset the DV. You are absolutely correct ... and that isn't even an opinion. That is 2 + 2 = 4 and to think otherwise is 2 + 2 = 5 brave new world shit.

Comment 08 Jul 2019

In a league with as much parity as the NFL (except New England) the life expectancy of an NFL coach is very low. Why would you give up a lifetime gig at OSU (assuming continued dominance) to go coach a couple years in the NFL?

My take on Robinson ...

He is an OSU lean right now, but not a sure thing. He mentioned that he and his family have not even sat down to discuss his options yet and that he will be making a decision between July and beginning of season.  The most positive thing that came out of his mouth was that the things that OSU brings are the things he is looking for in a school (player development, coaches, education).  It looks like OSU right now, but a lot can change between now and July-September.

It is due to the ubiquity of social media and video recording.  The only difference I have seen between kids of the past and today is that today's kids are much more self absorbed and they lack manners and respect for others. Not individually but in general. There are still lots of good kids today so don't mistake what I am saying, but by and large they lack respect for others because they have been told their whole lives that they are special and that the world revolves around them.  Of course, that makes my generation the worst parents ever.

I am fine with what Hove said and I respect it completely. go back and check the sequence of events.  His reply to me was after my moral stick comment (not before as you implied). Also that comment was clearly a comment on society at large and not on Hove (or anyone else) in particular.  I am not trying to legislate by telling people to lighten up but rather to enlighten them.  People are free to do what they want.  Inner peace is a beautiful thing, but you can't have that and be a SJW too.  The wisdom has been imparted. You chose whether to accept it or not.

agree wholeheartedly. Just trying to give people a different perspective. It is because people take shit too seriously is why we have the social issues we have today. On a message board, there really is no harm to getting down votes (who gives a shit really); but I see younger people get so wound around an axle over the dumbest shit and I wonder what that level of uptightness and a bland humorless life leads to. I wouldn't want to live like that, but I am a strong proponent of freedom so to each their own.

I lost both parents and a favorite aunt to cancer.  My sister has stage 4 lung after having both breasts removed from a previous bout. My brother has fought cancer and won (so far) and I have had three separate cancer scares over the past 15 years. I know how I am going to die as everyone in my family dies from cancer. I still find it funny.  You need to find joy in life and stop taking shit so seriously.  In a free society there should be nothing off limits to discuss. The reason that there are things that are off limits in our society is that too many people have a moral stick shoved up their ass (and take themselves too seriously). 

Comment 19 Jun 2019

I didn't even see it as shock or as humor per se, but rather just an observation that generally turns out to be true.

Comment 19 Jun 2019

The top five players on the Bruins were better than anyone on the Blues. Who on the Blues (salary aside) would you trade Bergie, Marchand, Rask, Pasta or McAvoy for?  The Blues got away with murder with the intent to injure bullshit all series. Bruins just didn't play as well as they could/should have.

There are about five guys on the Blues that are much dirtier players than Marchand, but he gets all the ink.  

Comment 19 Jun 2019

The fact that anyone down votes anything is amazing to me. I upvote if something is a good post and move on if I am neutral or disagree. 

I will NEVER down vote anything EVER. I find it hilarious that anyone else does. My wife and I laugh all the time at the Internet warriors who take the Internet seriously ... like it has anything to do with real life.

Don Rickles was the funniest man alive and wouldn't even have a career today.

A top 4 coach doesn't have a DGAF attitude ever. You don't get to the top of any profession with that attitude ever. It isn't even possible. The greats would never quit. Either he didn't or the rankings suck.
