|14 weeks 1 day ago||Tailgating Advice||
Thanks for the info. I thought I'd jump on here & get some general opinions for the tailgating. (Anyone who was at UTL 1 would be ideal). We're thinking the golf course but I don't think we'll be there at noon. What would be the "must be there by" time in everyone's opinion? (alternate location suggestions are also welcome). Also, we won't have a dish so those in our crew without tickets are thinking of watching via the Gameday big screen. Thoughts? Thanks.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||UTL2 tailgating advice||
Yeah, yeah... Repeated post and all that. I just want to take the opportunity once again try to get some opinions on tailgating Saturday. (Anyone who was at UTL 1 would be ideal). We're thinking the golf course but are unsure what time to show up by to make sure we get a spot (alternate location suggestions are also welcome). Also, we won't have a dish so those in our crew without tickets are thinking of watching via the Gameday big screen. Thoughts? Thanks.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||Semi Related Q||
Because I only comment once every 2 years, I'm not able to open my own post. I wanted to ask a Q about Gameday. Planning on tailgating from the golf course & a few in our crew will not be going into the game. Dish is not an option so would watching via the Gameday big screen be a viable alternative? (Follow up Question: What time would you suggest showing up to make sure we get a decent spot on the course?)
|14 weeks 6 days ago||Jumping on with another tailgating Q||
I've been waiting for someone to create a tailgating post about UTL2 so I could jump on and get some opinions (despite checking the website 16,000 times a day, I only post once every 2 years so I cannot start my own). No RV but I intend to tailgate on the golf course. 1) What would be a good time to show up to make sure we'll get a spot on the course? This 8pm start has me thrown off; 2) Since the game will be on ESPN & I do not intend to buy a dish, those in my party not lucky enough to have a ticket will not have a way to view the game. What would the best solution be? Depend on the kindness of other tailgaters with a dish set up? Go to a bar? Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Too many to check and see if I'm the first...

The story I can't seem to get away from fast enough is how it was all just Pryor and it's just so damn unfair that their beloved coach was taken down by one of the very players he was trying to protect. Even just writting that last little bit made me vomit in my mouth a little.
|2 years 23 weeks ago||Interesting||
The couple of Wing's boards I'm reading are blowing up about what a fool move this is. I'm happy to see that people are being more down to earth here.
Personally, I think it's a good move. I won't recount the reasons I believe this as all of them are already listed in posts above but will say that #1 on my list is " the hair".

...what's the dealer's incentive for providing the cars (if not a nefarious one)? I was only able to scan the article so let me know if I'm missing something obvious.
|2 years 27 weeks ago||I've said it before and I'll say it again...||
Delusion sauce. OSU fans put it on everyting they eat.
Just read The Doc Saturday piece reporting that several of the players parent's are disputing the SI claims. One of the comments on the article stated "Things aren't looking good for SI right now".
|2 years 27 weeks ago||I don't get it...||
It really is a different mindset down there. How can the Bucknuts not be pissed at a guy who is going to leave the program that they profess to love in shambles? I never got a strong beat on USC fans reactions to their NCAA troubles but don't they pretty much universally despise Carroll? How can delusion run so much deeper in Columbus than any other sports mad locale?

I don't think I'm alone here but frankly I was actually a little relieved when he didn't. If I'm remembering correctly, during the recruiting process some of the Sarniak stuff and a few other worrisome things came to light. Since then I'd say that he certainly has gone above and beyond to prove that we were lucky he passed.
|2 years 32 weeks ago||I like how in every article||
I like how in every article when Ted Sarniak is mentioned, his role with Pryor is now always in quoatations. “Mentor”, “advisor”, etc. Just cracks me up.

I passed on this little tidbit in a thread yesterday but it's much more appropriate here so I will repeat: The other day my father in law informed me that not only should Tressel not be punished, he should be commended because of how honorably he stuck his neck out to "protect his players". Also, the whole thing was a big fraud anyhow after how RR "got away with one".
So yeah... What can you do when met with such delusion? It's not like there's anything you can say that will make them hear logic.

The OSU fans I’ve encountered in my adventures tend to mostly be on the “eyes to the ground” and “mumble incoherently” side of things when discussing Tresselgate but, man, those with a less than firm grip on reality seem to have gone straight off the cliff. I recently had a pretty entertaining exchange with my father-in-law during which he told me that not only should Tressel not be punished but instead commended because of how he went above and beyond to “protect his players”. Also, apparently the whole thing was really just a farce after how RR “really got away with one”. After checking to make sure that there weren’t any hidden cameras and Kelso from the 70s show wasn’t around the corner I quietly excused myself, not wanting to further contribute to the mental deterioration of another human being.

I got to see a preview of the movie last week at the Michigan Theater. It may not be for everyone but it was one of the better movies I've seen in a long time.

...for following up with the rest of the bit.
Of course now, if you're anything like me, Anchorman lines will be running through your head for the rest of the day.

Very interesting. I promise to only use this knowledge for good. Thanks.

Wait... Uncle Phil from the Fresh Prince? He did Shredder's voice? I call shenanigans.

I only got him coupons. One free back rub and washing the Monarch Mobile."
"Isn't that your job anyway?"
"Yeah... But these are coupons."
|4 years 11 weeks ago||Ushers||
A few years ago, I had a run in with an Usher that did not originate with a blue-hair complaint. Someone hooked me up with some row 5, 50 yard line tickets and my seat just happened to be on the end, right next to the tunnel. When everyone stood up to high-five the team on their way to the field the usher actually threatened to have anyone standing in the aisle kicked out (despite the fact that everyone on the other side of the tunnel was allowed to go crazy). The whole damn experience stunk of "ordinary citizen driven mad when given a morsel of power".
More to the point: Is it possible that the root of the sometimes stagnant atmosphere is not Grandma and Grandpa "Hip Replacement" but rather the ushers who are more than happy to react to their complaints?

YOU'RE REALLY F*UCKING ON!
Girlfriend forced me out of bed this morning, went to go get breakfast, headed over to my buddy's house to help with after-party clean up, picked up my car, just got home and I realized something: I'm still a bit drunk. Oh celebratory Jack Daniel's... WHY MUST YOU TASTE SO SWEET!?
Ok... need to go back to bed now. Just felt like I needed to post something on the greatest website on the interwebs.

There is a blogger on there named "Abel to Yzerman" who I enjoy.
