That escalated quickly. I’m there on business, it’s going to suck being away from my family. I posted this because I’ve seen good results from similar thread in the past, and bad experiences with the lists on the open web (including allegedly current lists promoting bars that have closed). Sorry to bother you, and thanks to the helpful folks.

10/02/2018 - 7:43pm Jerseys being sold in Ohio…

Jerseys being sold in Ohio is a good start.

If they go with time served, that will be the most Ohio State decision ever.

08/16/2018 - 10:28pm Oh, and on the Anything I…

Oh, and on the Anything I can do question —he probably gets asked that a lot and doesn’t have good answers. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t want what you have to offer, he just isn’t up to making decisions. 

08/16/2018 - 10:25pm Do not go. I have …

Do not go. I have (fortunately very treatable for now) cancer, and having control over who can visit, when, and in what conditions is critical for maintaining any sense of control of your life. That only gets to be more the case as conditions deteriorate. 

It’s hard not to go, but anything else is disrespecting his wishes. He’s not rejecting your visit because he’s ashamed of how he is. He’s rejecting it because he wouldn’t be capable of enjoying it. Text him about other stuff, talk sports or whatever you guys share that isn’t about the disease, but leave it there unless he changes his mind.

I went YouTubeTV after canceling Comcast and love it. Only real limitation is I don’t think it has the alternative BTN channels when that’s a factor. But it does provide BTN2Go access if that’s a thing. 

It also doesn’t have Red Zone or P12 networks. I might get Sling Blue to cover those just for football season. Another $35, sure, but I’m paying $180 less per month without Comcast anyway.

Just arrived in California, too.

Only think I’ll add is Big Emmitt on the D-line could wreck shit for Tennessee this season. Unbelievable talent. 

08/03/2018 - 10:05am Yeah, this is sad. Clear…

Yeah, this is sad. Clear situation of a reporter who doesn’t understand investing following up on a tip from someone making mischief. 

07/29/2018 - 3:20pm Funniest for me is Wisconsin…

Funniest for me is Wisconsin at 8. BPI is no KenPom. I’ll just say that.

10/24/2017 - 2:50pm I love Bill, but weird factual errors

Most notable:

--Losing to OSU and FSU by a combined 3 points. We lost to OSU by 6, FSU by 2. Even if you say in regulation, then it's a combined 2? Weird.

--Michigan was a victory over Wisconsin from making the CFP last year? Does he mean Iowa?

09/08/2017 - 2:17pm FPI is consistently the worst

FPI is consistently the worst advanced metrics system. I remember one year in which it incorrectly picked every bowl of the New Year's Six, including against the spread. Flipping a coin would perform better.

FEI and S&P+ are the only computer rankings to pay attention to

09/04/2017 - 4:56pm I didn't say "starters". I

I didn't say "starters". I said Westbrook, specifically. What does a very tall, pretty thin WR bring into kick return coverage? I could absolutely see him rushing the kicker or punter.

IU fans should be calling for the staff's heads. Why on earth was he in on kick coverage?

08/23/2017 - 8:19pm Having graduated from Northwestern

I can only warn not to be seduced by how pretty the campus is. It doesn't feel pretty when it's been -15 with 50 mph winds for a month straight.

She should go to jail. She actively facilitated continued abuse of her players and prospects at camps for decades. Like the Sandusky situation if we were certain of just what Paterno knew.

Butch Jones can't get enough of Michigan retreads.

02/01/2017 - 6:36pm Love him or hate him

Tom is one of the greatest QBs in NFL history.

On the other hand, while he's also handsome, I've yet to see much indication that he'd be a great coach, let alone a great college coach. That doesn't mean he doesn't have it, that means he should have to earn it like everyone else. There's no question Harbaugh is a better coach for having taken an entry-level job with the Raiders before working his way up to the highest levels. Totally different profession than playing.

01/03/2017 - 3:12pm How does Early Enrollment work?

Doesn't class start tomorrow? How can you "enroll early" if you show up a week late to class?

12/01/2016 - 4:37pm This is laughably wrong

He slaughtered Illinois on the road and handled Northwestern this year. I'm quite sure WMU would beat Purdue 10 times out of 10. He could easily become the best or second-best coach in the B1G West right now.

He's probably going to Oregon, though.

07/05/2016 - 3:55pm Bill O'Brien said it best

“You can print this: You can print that I don’t really give a [expletive] what the ‘Paterno people’ think about what I do with this program. I’ve done everything I can to show respect to Coach Paterno. Everything in my power. So I could really care less about what the Paterno faction of people, or whatever you call them, think about what I do with the program. I’m tired of it.
“For any ‘Paterno person’ to have any objection to what I’m doing, it makes me wanna put my fist through this windshield right now.”

“I’m trying to field the most competitive football team I can with near-death penalty [expletive] sanctions. Every time I say something like that and somebody prints it, it’s skewed as an excuse. And I’m not an excuse-maker. I’m trying to do the best I can for the kids in that program. That’s all I care about is the kids in that program. As long as I’m the head football coach here.”

“That’s why, in probably about a month, they’re gonna be [expletive] looking for a new coach.”

Yeah. He was 21. I hope I abandoned most of my opinions from when I was 21.

Yes, it's way better to be arrested with a loaded AR-15 outside a strip club than same scenario with an AK.

04/14/2016 - 3:49pm Jim Mora's the worst

So glad the rumors about him and not Harbaugh were categorically false. He is the opposite of a jackhammer.

He went to my high school, one of the only big-time recruits out of Midland High in my lifetime. Andrew Maxwell, who never played well as MSU QB but did start for awhile is the other. I love seeing fellow Chemics succeed, but I'm good with Steve doing it on his own terms.

Nah, Oregon is the second-best team in the Pac 12, but don't play for the title because of divisions. Good argument that USC is no. 3, though. And that Wisconsin is no. 6 in the B1G (worse record and head-to-head loss to Northwestern).
