re: Just met a disgruntled Ohio State fan in the wild... - Htowntiger90
I worked in Cleveland from summer 2007 to fall 2010, in the midst of the scarlet & gray propaganda. Thanks again to Matt Flynn, Glenn Dorsey & company, for making it more fun to wear the purple & gold up there. :bow: Thinking that their state is God's gift to football, they did not take the 2007...

re: Great Article on Stanley Roberts & Shaq - Htowntiger90
Here's another article that was in the sidebar for the OP article. Lots more of his backstory. https://news.yahoo.com/hometown-hero-pariah-stanley-roberts-050000906.html I went to plenty of games as a student in this era - Shaq had a higher ceiling and was a higher rated player, but as freshm...

re: For all those complaining about fan support at home games - Htowntiger90
[quote]All of that said, I don’t really buy the idea that those changes to tailgating are having a big negative impact on attendance. I’m not 100% convinced we have a major attendance issue in the first place. I think it’s pretty simple. The stadium over-expanded. There just aren’t that many game...

re: So if it’s ESPN, I assume we get Greg/Tess correct? - Htowntiger90
[quote]Danielson said in the broadcast it would be the night game of the CBS double header. He didn’t say that. He was just saying that CBS would have Georgia/Tennessee which means LSU/Bama at 6:30. You assumed he meant our game would be on CBS.[/quote] Was wondering, thanks for clearing tha...

re: Has Jacoby Guillory lived up to expectations in your opinion ? - Htowntiger90
Not yet. He should have the strength based on videos of him squatting 700 lbs. But you also need a little quickness at the snap, explosiveness and good technique. He at least seems to hold his ground though....

re: Audiobooks 10 hours or shorter - Htowntiger90
If you like fiction... I've listened to most of Kurt Vonnegut's books on Audible. They're just about all under 10 hours. Mostly good narrators, except I wasn't crazy about John Malkovich's narration on Breakfast of Champions. Also, The Spy who Came in from the Cold by LeCarre. I think most of...
