your comment really turns on that missing word.  winning more?  winning less?

01/11/2019 - 1:11pm this is the correct and most…

this is the correct and most complete answer.  shorter version:

our rating is the same, but our ranking is dropping because other teams are exceeding their own rating by winning by more than kenpom projected.

big ups to those who actually ate lemons, made a video, and posted on youtube.  and to the OP.

also, at least in my view, a charitable donation is a perfectly acceptable cop-out.

OP: you should post below so we can posbang this.

It's what concerned Zach Harrison and probably why we're going to lose him too.

12/06/2018 - 10:42am this is a fantastic thread. …

this is a fantastic thread.  here are some thoughts covering the OP and some of the replies preceding mine.

- i find the best way to find rare beer is through the ratebeer app and the beerbuddy app (which is powered by ratebeer).  i use the beerbuddy app ratings (which i think are more precise than those on ratebeer) to identify beer that i want to locate.  then i use the brewery and store function on ratebeer to track the beers down.

- there was a time when i hunted down pliny the elder.  sorry to spoil it for you, but pliny the elder is great, but it isn't going to change your life or anything.  the harder and better pliny beer to track down is pliny the younger.  it comes out in february.  you'll probably have to be in CA to get it.  another way to get either of them is to have someone send it to you from CA.  find a high-end beer shop in CA, call them and tell them you're willing to pay to have them ship beer to you.  assuming there is no CO law preventing them from doing so, most places will take a few extra bucks to ship to you.

- another method is to locate a great beer store near you and talk to the owners.  i have one near me (i'm in NY) and they'll tell me what they can get, and if they can't get something where the closest place to get it is.  they can also help you find really high rated beers you might be unaware of.  they also know owners in other states who will ship things if you ask nicely.

- there are some other tough to find brewers that i would target if i were you.  toppling goliath and three floyds come to mind.  those are easier to get in the midwest.  as with most breweries, go onto their website and check out their distribution network.  that will show you states (and in many cases stores) that distribute their beers.  some other really great breweries you should go after if you can:

  • maine
  • alesmith
  • mikkeller
  • cigar city
  • hill farmstead
  • funky budha
  • stone

- there are also some easy to find brewers that make certain beers that can be hard to find.  but finding a good beer shop should enable you to find these.  these include beers like:

  • founders KBS and CBS
  • some bell's (black note stout, expedition stout, etc.)
  • ommegang (some of the game of thrones series, hennepin, anniversary ales, etc.)
  • some firestone walker beers

footballscoop throws darts.  they hit about 20% of the time.

small sample size.  torvick and kenpom use data from last year.  i'm not sure if BPI does.  by the end of the year, BPI, torvick and kenpom will all be about the same.  this is nothing to get worked up over.

11/29/2018 - 12:12pm agreed.  there are so many…

agreed.  there are so many crap topics on this board.  questioning whether iggy is one and done is an appropriate use of this board.

i would change the fact that we lost to OSU.

WOTS that I cannot confirm is that it's Mike Cannon's crew

Are you shaking your head at Lou Ann Simon or because this is the 8th time this has been posted.

i can only assume Haskins just called you and told you this.  otherwise you probably would've posted a link.

damn it.  i'm better than that!  though apparently not in this instance.

247 acknowledged that hinton is an error.  he is going to be around #100 on their internal rankings.

If that's so certain, why didn't that happen this year in the exact same circumstance?

if the PR people couldn't convince the administration that this was a poor choice, they should be fired.

Does this mean God didn't fight Dantonio's battles for him?

we can only hope that had he not resigned he would have been fired for cause.

where does Endless Motor/Matt D have Zeb ranked?  at this stage, it makes more sense to look at them than ESPN.

i feel bad that the fanbase made her feel like that was necessary. 

feel better rashan.  we're here to cheer for you on and off the field, whenever those might occur.

10/23/2018 - 4:24pm it's not that Heisman voting…

it's not that Heisman voting makes a difference.  it's that the NFL doesn't look at 6'2" quarterbacks except for those that are doing something crazy.  doing something crazy gets you on the Heisman radar.  shea's been great for our team.  but "makes plays" guys are throwing for 300+ yards a game, and shea is usually under 200.

all i'm saying is that shea isn't a 1st rounder this year.

10/23/2018 - 3:29pm aaron rogers put up Heisman…

aaron rogers put up Heisman level numbers, and came out early because he knew that his heisman level numbers would get him drafted early.  rogers finished in the top 10 of heisman voting.  patterson does not compare to aaron rogers.

10/23/2018 - 2:42pm he won't go in the first…

he won't go in the first round.  6'2" QBs don't go in the first round unless they're putting up Heisman level numbers.

10/23/2018 - 2:35pm option 1 and it isn't close…

option 1 and it isn't close.  we want to be in the playoff.  recruits want to see us in the playoff.  writes and those who drive poll hype (which matters in recruiting as well) would respond more favorably if we're in the playoff.

10/22/2018 - 12:56pm if we could just get some…

if we could just get some more gary threads, that would be great.

10/18/2018 - 4:31pm you should have placed a…

you should have placed a comma before ken.  as in "thank you, robby."  there is always a comma between that is being addressed and who is being addressed.

10/18/2018 - 12:41pm "problem" in what sense?  it…

"problem" in what sense?  it's the NBA that thinks there is a problem.  they think 18 year olds are too young and immature to play in the NBA.  if you want real evidence of that, well...i'm not sure you're going to find it.

in all likelihood the real reason was that they were handing out huge contracts to busts and want another year of scouting against competition they can better measure.

this is the worst take and the article linked does a damn fine job of propping up your straw man and knocking it down.

I'm a 247 insider and I heard from Sam's best friend's sister's boyfriend that Sam passed out at 31 Flavors last night. 

It's either that or the OP just makes stuff up.

these kinds of posts aren't necessary.  this is a publicly available website, and you're essentially attacking a member of the team in that public space. 

also, i can't wait for the ban on snowflake posts.

Orr's take is pretty reasonable.  He still runs an OSU blog.

yeah, i was on the fence about cooper, but buckeyes hate him.

is earle bruce the only OSU coach who had any reasonable success, who didn't also face some sort of significant discipline for misconduct?

that's not how leaks work.  leaks have a purpose.  the leaker here is obviously someone on or close to the BOT.  the purpose of the leak is to put pressure on Drake by showing that he's outnumbered and being "stubborn."
