Let's not forget that this isn't the first instance of a black man who received justice at the hands of a group of cops and it won't be the last. Therein lies the problem.  I have seen various post about how protesters blew it this time because people were finally with them but we all now that this notion is  bullshit.  This happens every single day at a minimum.  Sometimes it results in a heinous crime that attracts nation-wide attention and sometimes it barely registers a blip on the nation's collective conscience, but everyday there is an injustice done and we allow for those injustices to continue because we succumb to the fears that we are sold on a daily basis.  There is a daily reinforcement of subconscious fear that is sold through certain political and media channels that allows biases to perpetuate.  These biases gain traction through such notions as the thin blue line.  This is the idea that the police, "our supposed heroes" are the only thing standing between order and chaos.  What does it say when they are always the reason for chaos breaking out?   We need a new standard for police officers.  I'm talking a considerably higher standard than we have now.  I have known police officers personally who have no business policing society.  Our police departments have no business employing these people and police unions have no business protecting these people.  End of story.  Police departments have to get rid of the cancer that resides within their ranks.  Otherwise, I suggest an immediate boycott of all sports activities on the professional and collegiate level.

It's the depth that Klopp has put together that is the difference.  Even the youth team is absolutely stacked.  Unfortunately, Klopp will be gone after the next extension runs its course.  Then all bets are off.

Yeah.  I'd trust the recollection of the story from the poster over trusting that NPR got the story right.  Let me guess.  You get your news from the fair and balanced network?

While OSU's "scandal" has been handled infinitely better than the previously mentioned schools, we do have a certain luxury that made dealing with this issue much easier.  The simple fact that this happened many administrations ago and that no one currently affiliated with the university was part of the events that unfolded over this doctor's tenure.  OSU really isn't any different than any other organization who's had these types of event unfold.  The reaction is to always try to sweep it under the rug.  Ignore the problem as though it never happened.  In much the same way I guess 11Warriors is just trying to do the same thing.  It really doesn't help the collective psyche of the "community" when you try to ignore the problem.  Talking through this is always the best way to come to terms with it.  I just wonder if this is a Jim Jordan thing.

Recipe for disaster.  You think the transferring of QBs is bad now?  Just wait until you get your wish.  Even with free agency in the pros there are a lot of limitations.

I prefer position coaches who've actually played the position.  I don't get how someone played a DB somehow becomes an offensive coordinator.  I mean obviously it is not out of the realm of possibilities.  Someone could easily argue that only a defensive player would really know how to attack a defense.  But a position coach should know and have applied the actual technique involved with the position.  Hartline is a godsend.  So would LaCharles Bentley.  If Day was smart, he'd back the Brinks truck up at Bentley's facility and drive him all the way back to Columbus.  I just prefer players with extensive college or professional experience coaching the position that they played.

I'm not sure you're ready for the reality that is beer trading.  If you find $12.00 bottles expensive, then you're going to find it tough sledding.

Besides, there are so many great beers no matter where you live.  There is no reason to trade when a same style beer of near the same quality is right down the street from you.  Traders are usually people who engage in constant dick-sizing contests.

Haskins just entered the conversation too late.  A lot of those votes are already in by the Michigan game and that was his "Heisman" moment.  We all know how this works.  I'm really surprised that people are bitching about this.  I suspect that some just want to use this as another proof positive that the world is out to get OSU.  I just don't think that this is a case for outrage.

Who cares about the playoffs.  This team was going to get destroyed in the playoffs.  Let's just limp across the BigTen finish line now.

Of course there was.  There was opposition to the United States entered World War I and II.  There were a lot of Nazi sympathizers throughout the country.  Your point is sort of meaningless.
