Best of luck to Mr. Scott. OSU also lost out on OH ATH/LB/RB Jerome Baker, who committed to Florida. He was 78% to OSU on 247. Local radio already spinning that Urban will flip him by signing day. Friday rules!!

+1 for the rocket pop. I love those things. Now I'm hungry. Who am I kidding, I'm always hungry.

Ines Sainz if I'm not mistaken.

I never noticed that it looks like he's falling up a cliff if you miss the beginning. Strange. Happy Friday!!

Thanks for posting this. Can't wait to see what Peppers and the rest of the team can do this fall. Bonnie Bernstein singing Baby Got Back makes me smile too.
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I stand corrected. You'll||
I stand corrected. You'll have to excuse me because that was created by Ted Strickland in 2007 after I graduated and I haven't even begun to think about college for my daughters. I have never heard of this system and bet 95% of people on the street haven't either. Sounds like some type of political BS to me, not to get political or anything.
Edit: I bet this was done when Ohio decided they wanted to include technical colleges in their "guaranteed" rate for Ohio state 529 plans to lower the average annual tuition at state "colleges".
|3 weeks 2 days ago||Alternatively, What?||
There is no University System of Ohio. OU has branch campuses with Athens being the "flagship". Akron, Bowling Green and others have branches as well. This isn't SUNY @ Buffalo, etc. We aren't that organized around here.

OH-IO is a stupid chant. Any Ohio University grad knows it's supposed to be O-H-I-O, repeated with increasing speed and ending with an OOOOOOOOH!!
|3 weeks 2 days ago||I think you are mistaken.||
I have lived in central Ohio my entire life and do not recall OSU using "THE" until their copywright dispute with Ohio University. OU "won" (OSU agreed to drop their challenge) the use of "OHIO" on their athletic gear, etc and I believe OSU started using "THE" as a dig at OU. (I was going to link an article about the dispute, but I can't link anything lately. Anyone else having this problem?)
Edit: when I say using "THE", I mean in the media, MNF intros, etc. I'm sure they use it on official school letterhead and whatnot.

I had to upvote you for your username. Pulaski does not generally get enough recognition for his work during the revolution. I wanted to name my son Casimir if I'd had one (two girls though).

|11 weeks 1 day ago||"Basically telling him to hit||
"Basically telling him to hit the road isn't helping him." I'd say this is assuming that the NCAA is forcing players out of school with their year ban. I'd say it's Mitch's injury along with his age and and the suspension that is forcing his hand. If he was a year younger or older or if he had played this year, would the year ban really matter? That was my point. Edit: I guess you could be arguing that the NCAA should look at the suspensions on a case by case basis. I think this would open a Pandora's Box of unequal punishment (see Cam Newton).
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I have two words for you.||
I have two words for you. Plausible deniability. So, I guess I'm not smarter than that. I don't think anybody is above breaking the rules. I hope and think that our administrators and coaches wouldn't do such a thing but nothing surprises me anymore. Edit: This is just a general lack of faith in humanity, not me passing judgement on the program because of recent events or anything.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I have a CDL and get tested||
I have a CDL and get tested randomly by the state. I guess my union could probably try to get it reduced to just a suspension for a positive test, but the testing process isn't negotiated. They are more worried about getting the number of comp time hours you can carry increased. Priorities and all.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Those tests were administered||
Those tests were administered by Michigan right? I'm sure nobody in the athletic department would give a star player a heads up that they might be on the list to get tested. I'm not saying Mitch is lying, but passing 8 tests administered by someone with a vested interest in the test being passed doesn't really prove anything in my mind.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Why do you assume this is the||
Why do you assume this is the only reason he's leaving? If he wanted to stay, do you really think Coach B wouldn't allow him to sit a year and then play in 2015/16? Would his scholly get yanked automatically? What if the NCAA did make the rule retroactive for Mitch and he still wanted to leave? What if it was only 4 games and Mitch still left? Are you mad about the rule or Mitch leaving?
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I think you're joking, but||
I think you're joking, but just in case. I'm in a union and can still get fired for testing positive for drugs/alcohol. If you don't like a law/rule, try to get it changed. Don't break the rule and then say the punishment is stupid (Mitch isn't doing this, thankfully).
|11 weeks 1 day ago||The NCAA has already adjusted||
The NCAA has already adjusted the punishment for next year, so they are admitting the year ban was excessive. Plus, failing a drug test is a pretty black and white thing, unless you are Ryan Braun. All the examples you gave involve at least a degree of interpretation and gray area, which allows the NCAA to pick and choose who they want to really punish.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I can lose my job for one||
I can lose my job for one little failed test. Besides, if Mitch wasn't considering leaving for the NBA already, he'd serve his suspension and be back to play. This is just the perfect shit storm for us as fans.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||It was pointed out in another||
It was pointed out in another comment that they've already adjusted the ban to 1/2 a year after August 1st. The legalization of marijuana in some places does not mean the NCAA has to embrace its use among their athletes. They still have rules against tobacco use by coaches and that's been legal forever.
|11 weeks 1 day ago||Why does the NCAA look stupid||
Why does the NCAA look stupid in this case, other than maybe the suspension being a little excessive?
|11 weeks 1 day ago||I've done a lot of stupid||
I've done a lot of stupid things in my day and been lucky to not get caught/arrested. I feel for Mitch if his claim that it only happened once is true. Think what you want about weed, if it's against the rules then NCAA athletes shouldn't be doing it. Good luck to him in the NBA.

Ohio doesn't do much right, but this is great. I work in Lancaster, Sherman's birthplace. Phil Sheridan is from right down the road in Somerset too (he did similar work to Sherman through the Shenandoah Valley). We know how to raise pissed off generals around here!

Right decision or wrong decision, it's HIS decision and I wish him the best. Go rep the Maize and Blue in the NBA like Tim and Trey.

The burning question is . . . will he still be doing ads for pistachios? Inquiring minds want to know.
|13 weeks 2 days ago||Thanks, I'll read the||
Thanks, I'll read the article. I understand what you are saying about people of mixed heritage, but that still doesn't mean sexuality is equal to race to me. That would be like someone being bisexual and chosing to live as either hetero or homo. I'm talking about people that don't have homosexual attraction chosing to live that way, which I will agree is probably a very small minority but still possible. In my example, as a caucasian I cannot chose to live as an African American. As far as accepting differences, I can accept and appreciate someone as a person and still disagree with their behavior for moral reasons. If my best friend was cheating on his wife, I wouldn't stop being friends with him becuase he did something I thought was wrong. I'd try to encourage him to make it right and love him as a friend through the situation. I would try to do the same if I had a any gay friends (I don't chose not to, there just aren't a bunch of openly gay people where I live). How I would do this gets into a lot of religion which I won't discuss here, but I think the process is possible.
Edit: Most of the info in the article wasn't new to me. There was one interesting study mentioned that I hadn't heard before. The possibility that exposure to certain hormones during fetal development can affect sexual orientation is interesting. If that is true, it would answer a question I've heard often which is "why would God make people gay?". If your orientation can change between conception and birth, that could make both sides of the argument correct. Thanks for sharing the article.
|13 weeks 3 days ago||I keep hearing this "you are||
I keep hearing this "you are born that way" argument. I've never been able to find a good study that proves homosexuality is genetic. I really would appreciate if someone has that info. Also, I would bet a very large sum of money that some people that live a homosexual lifestyle are doing it for attention or some other psychological reason. You can't choose or live your life as if you are another race, so to me there is a huge difference.

Double post! Did anyone hear about Leo's hat?
