12/14/2018 - 8:01am I can absolutely understand…

I can absolutely understand why recruits wouldn't like Urban, but disliking Urban and liking James Franklin? It's like choosing the guy trying to sell you a used Porsche vs the guy trying to sell you a used Dodge Stratus: they're both assholes, but in one case, you get a Porsche. 

11/27/2018 - 8:38pm Have you ever actually been…

Have you ever actually been to Columbus? The city doesn't get nearly the winters even that cities an hour north get, let alone 4+ hours north. My freshman year in Columbus it didn't snow until January

11/27/2018 - 8:56am I agree with you, but Olave…

I agree with you, but Olave was playing because of the injury to Austin Mack, not only because he's fast

Somehow they beat the titan that is Purdue

11/26/2018 - 7:34pm Saying 0-3 doesn't do that…

Saying 0-3 doesn't do that record justice without mentioning that one loss was against Akron

08/17/2018 - 11:57am Agreed. I may be in this…

Agreed. I may be in this situation sooner rather than later and if I say I don't want people to see me in that state, I'd hope they'd respect my wishes. 

08/07/2018 - 9:38am Congratulations, you all get…

Congratulations, you all get to witness my greatest shame as an alumnus and fan of Ohio State

08/07/2018 - 9:35am I'm not gonna defend my…

I'm not gonna defend my cesspool fanbase in this instance, but from the photos, the rally was very small and I'd be very surprised if there were any alumni, let alone students, involved. The petition is a different story

08/04/2018 - 1:44am You're not wrong. Very few…

You're not wrong. Very few people who I graduated with are blindly defending Urban like the commentariat on 11W. I guess I just was fooled into the belief that it was one of the last bastions of reasonable fanhood. I won't be commenting there in the future, although I believe that the site's admins and writers are coming from a place similar to the one I am.

08/04/2018 - 1:40am I've gone through some…

I've gone through some personal (health) stuff in the last few years that has helped me gain some perspective. Not that I would otherwise be defending ANYONE who condones violence against women, but my experiences have taught me that there are many, MANY things that come before a game. 

08/04/2018 - 1:38am I just figured that a few of…

I just figured that a few of the OSU "superfans" would be putting ethics and morality over a game

08/03/2018 - 7:03pm I thought elevenwarriors…

I thought elevenwarriors represented the more rational side of the Ohio State fanbase, but I just checked on the latest in this trainwreck and hoooooo boy was I wrong. 

07/23/2018 - 2:17pm This isn't entirely true;…

This isn't entirely true; the fanbase is pretty mixed about him. I questioned his ability to develop the crazy amount of talent OSU has had at WR on elevenwarriors, and got downvotes because of it

07/21/2018 - 11:54am Jeremy Toljan is a RB who…

Jeremy Toljan is a RB who gets a decent amount of time and once he figures out there's no room for him with the German team, he might play for the USMNT. I hope?

07/17/2018 - 10:00am Maybe, but full disclosure,…

Maybe, but full disclosure, I learned nothing from the Klinnsman debacle and want another foreign coach

07/17/2018 - 8:58am You cared enough to give…

You cared enough to give this post some sweet, sweet traffic

Looks like Sterling to me. Let's just hope he's a better finisher

I'll defend to the death the practice of calling English football "The Footy"

07/17/2018 - 8:49am Romelu Lukaku starts for one…

Romelu Lukaku starts for one of the best soccer nations in the world and his first touch is only marginally better than Zardes. I'll say two things: 1. I'm a reformed Zardes-hater, and 2. I'm a Crew fan, but with those in mind, Berhalter's ability to find a way to hide Zardes's glaring inadequacy is a genius decision.

07/12/2018 - 6:19pm If two things continually…

If two things continually coincide there is a correlation, but it may not be causal

07/12/2018 - 7:32am I wasn't referring to…

I wasn't referring to pediatric brain tumors. GBM makes up over half of brain tumors in all patients. Obviously, we're coming from different places here. It's never been in my best interest to do research on pediatric brain tumors, but I've done a bunch on brain tumors in adults

07/11/2018 - 11:35pm 52% of brain tumors are…

52% of brain tumors are glioblastomas, right? That's a whole lot of brain tumors that are treatable, but generally not curable. 

Regarding the statement about children not typically being eligible for immunotherapy trials, the only area in which I'm knowledgeable here is regarding brain cancer, so I was referring only to that. I'm under the impression that many of the most promising trials for GBM using vaccines to promote  immune response to fight the cancer are being offered to adults only, but I'd love to be wrong. After all, brain cancer is the second most common cancer in children, correct? 

07/11/2018 - 11:24pm C'mon man. I have no agenda…

C'mon man. I have no agenda in this argument. All I said was that studies have shown that CBD oil has been shown to slow or halt cell growth. I didn't specify the types of trials and I didn't deny the fact that the findings have been extremely limited and not yet studied very extensively in actual human subjects (although there are ongoing studies on the issue and hopefully we'll know more soon enough)

07/11/2018 - 6:16pm CBD has actually been shown…

CBD has actually been shown in early studies to slow or halt growth in the cells of some types of cancers. There's a reason the best hospitals in the country commit money to studying alternative/integrative medicine. A healthy skepticism is good, but dismissal won't get you anywhere.

07/11/2018 - 6:11pm Yeah, the Polio vaccine…

Yeah, the Polio vaccine trial actually cured a patient (brain cancer is typically incurable) when used in a trial at Duke University. 

There are new trials using immunology that are super promising, but I don't think children are eligible for most of them, sadly.

You know this isn't the only country with fireworks, right? I mean, they weren't even invented here...

Regarding what makes a school "uppity", he says in a 247 article that Michigan acted like it was a foregone conclusion that he would go there over MSU once he got the offer, and it rubbed him the wrong way. 

06/28/2018 - 9:08am I'm lucky to have lived so…

I'm lucky to have lived so close to great cancer centers. Both the James and and the Clinic are renowned for their brain cancer treatments and I could've chosen either one and been happy but I decided to move back north

06/27/2018 - 10:19pm I'd be there if I didn't…

I'd be there if I didn't live so close to the Cleveland Clinic

06/24/2018 - 9:17pm Maybe Justin Rogers for next…

Maybe Justin Rogers for next year, but I don't think you take a QB just to get close to other players who live in the same town but go to a different school. Unless, of course, you know something I don't 

05/27/2018 - 12:19am Yeah, again, I'm sorry for

Yeah, again, I'm sorry for bringing up painful subjects but this liverpool team is very michigan-esque in its propensity for finding dumb ways to lose 

05/26/2018 - 5:02pm Obviously looking at this a

Obviously looking at this a little differently after this game, but I can't argue with that

05/26/2018 - 4:57pm The only upside is that (I

The only upside is that (I hope) we'll go after alisson or oblak after this

Im doubling down on my UM = Liverpool stance 

 

Also I'm very drunk don't ban me 

05/26/2018 - 4:55pm Look back at when Kelly

Look back at when Kelly Olenyk did that to Kevin Love. He didn't stay on the court did he? 

05/26/2018 - 4:52pm People probably died because

People probably died because you guys practiced too much, to be honest 

05/26/2018 - 1:02pm I saw a video where they

I saw a video where they interviewed Premiership fans about who they would root for and it was about 50/50 for and against liverpool. I think fans of the teams who aren't top six rivals of Liverpool's want to see an English win. 

05/26/2018 - 1:00pm I think ND is Man U. Another

I think ND is Man U. Another historic club, lots of titles with a huge donor base (transfer budget) and preseason hype that isn't matched by the season's results very often. 

05/26/2018 - 12:59pm The comparison was apter a

The comparison was apter a few years ago when Klopp and Harbaugh were re-energizing their respective fanbases, but Klopp has gotten better results during that span

05/26/2018 - 12:56pm Best defensive record in the

Best defensive record in the Prem since Van Dijk signed, but that's none of my business

05/26/2018 - 11:28am I know you're joking, but in

I know you're joking, but in all seriousness, these are two highest scoring teams in the competition and neither really emphasize defense in their tactics, so I wouldn't be surprised to see 5+ goals scored today. 

05/26/2018 - 11:25am Root for LFC, they're the

Root for LFC, they're the Michigan of the soccer world.

Or because Haskins is a pro-style QB

02/28/2018 - 10:02pm OSU has a chance for 3 season

OSU has a chance for 3 season losses against PSU next game (probably)

02/20/2018 - 7:43pm Yeah, I think that's the main

Yeah, I think that's the main reason why Weber is returning. He sees more potential for carries and RB involvement beyond blocking for QB draws and options where it's clear the D will make the QB keep it. I think Haskins just needs to be athletic enough to keep defenses honest and nothing more. 

02/20/2018 - 6:49pm He's definitely not as

He's definitely not as athletic as Barrett. I see him as a more accurate, slightly less freakishly athletic Cardale Jones with a strong arm on short and intermediate throws but not as strong with the deep ball. FWIW

02/20/2018 - 5:55pm I live in a (Cleveland)

I live in a (Cleveland) neighborhood with as many Michigan flags as Ohio State, which is weird, but I don't hate them. 

02/11/2018 - 8:16pm Really impressed by Coon

Really impressed by Coon there, credit where credit is due. Absolute unit

02/11/2018 - 7:24pm Yeah, I'd like to see that,

Yeah, I'd like to see that, but I don't think the outcome of that matchup will matter when their bout rolls around. 

edit: potentially spoke too soon

02/11/2018 - 7:03pm I agree that Coons has more

I agree that Coons has more of a shot than most against Snyder because of his size, but just out curiosity, what does Snyder need to accomplish for you to call him a "living legend"? Dude is the youngest wrestler to win 3 championships and the same year and the only wrestler ever to return to college after an Olympic gold.
