Late games, on the road, in conference make me nervous.  I haven't watched Game Day since Urban started on the Fox show, guess I can make an exception this week.  I hate it when Rece Davis talks, or is on camera, or is mentioned by someone else on camera...  I do hope Desmond talks about his school though...  These Buckeyes are special and have super potential, I hope they destroy the Cornshuckers but I will be happy with a win.

I don't know for sure, but these types of moves are typically done based on competitive advantage.  To give smaller countries more of a chance they limit how much the larger powerhouses can bring. Gymnastics is dealing with some limitations this year (as far as team size) that they have not had to in the past.

My other thought is that it may also be tied to when there was a movement to eliminate wrestling as an Olympic sport. Maybe the folks who went to battle to save it had to make concessions?

Thanks for the article Andy.  I always want @11Warriors to know how much we appreciate their coverage and support.  I don't want to lose the coverage.

I'm sure the good Major doesn't need a lowly Non-Com like me to defend him, so I won't.  However, I read Maj H's post a little differently than you.  I read it more in the tense that this young man does not regularly or predictably experience the seizures in game situations. I could be wrong, but the tone of his other posts don't seem dismissive or to downplay the seriousness of the situation.

Ramzy was over the top tough on OSU and Coach Meyer last year, I don't count the year before when he rightly raked Coach Meyer over the coals for his hiring/firing practices. I will say that the stance Ramzy took on all of the OSU missteps gives him the moral authority to write about these subjects and this is in no way "What-About-ism" in my book.

OSU fans are way over sensitive in the in the "ESPN Bias" and the world hates us arena but the lack of integrity by the 4th state in these types of situations really make it hard to consider them neutral parties.  How on earth the whole UNC debacle isn't still adding to the unemployment line while generating change and #Content I have no idea.

These folks often talk about a higher standard yet they fail to meet the "The Standard" even when it is so reachable.

I am a 100% D. Haskins fan however, body of work is a very reliable predictor of success in the NFL. Rather, it might be more accurate to say players with less than 19 games starting in college and a high draft selection typically under perform in the NFL.  That being said, I do think that Haskins will be very successful if he lands in an even remotely good situation.

it is not really all that rare to find ordinance around Europe, several years ago my son and I were walking in the forest along a WWII battle line on the border of Germany and Luxenbourg.  We found (among other things) a pile of 9 hand grenades.  The post office in the little town we lived in in Germany was closed for a little while when they found a an old munition while repairing the sidewalk.  

There are places where stuff from WWI is still being found
