Blepharitis - Suffering

17 March 2014 - 10:40 AM

Hey everybody,

I am wondering if anyone on this board has blepharitis and/or has any ideas on how to make it not flame up so bad? It is a problem with the oil glands underneath my eyes not working right. It is a chronic issue I have had for a few years now, and basically, underneath my eyes gets all red and puffy, and I experience a great deal of discomfort as a result. My eyes feel dry and irritated, and it pretty much makes my couple of days miserable.

I try to stay on top of it. I normally put vaseline or Neosporin on my eyes before I go to bed, and recently, I had been experiencing some success with putting a heating pad over my eyes when I sleep. It didn't work this time, though. I've tried hot packs, eye drops, rinsing my eyes with water, and anything I can try to do to get it taken care of, but it just doesn't work.

Does anybody else suffer from this? Or anybody who knows something about it that may help? I am going to the doctor today to see what they can do for me, but I'm not sure how that is going to go considering I've been through this process before. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.


The All-B1G Assistant Coaching team includes 0 NU coaches

10 December 2013 - 05:02 PM


I know the list itself is meaningless, but it simply reaffirms what all of us already know: that Bo has surrounded himself with a group of assistant coaches that are either not pulling their weight, or are inexperienced and learning on the job.

The only NU coach who came close to being on the list was Rich Fisher, who is probably my favorite assistant coach as well, along with Terry Joseph.

So with the offseason upon us (sort of), what specific coaching changes do you want to see after the bowl game/NSD?

I'll start:

-We need a new OC. It's time to find a proven commodity as OC who won't continually sh#t the bed as a play caller. If I'm Bo, I go find my guy who runs the style of offense that I want to be run and then let him choose his assistants, with heavy recommendations to keep Garrison, Brown, and Fisher.

-Get rid of Barney. He does nothing. I find it as no coincidence that he just moved from OL coach to TE coach, and this season the OL is as good as it has been in a LONG time, and the TE position was flat out underwhelming.

-To go along with the last one, with the spot on staff open from Barney, hire another offensive assistant. Whether they pass the TEs on to Fisher/Garrison and hire a QB coach, or create a position elsewhere such as a dedicated special teams coach who knows what the hell they are doing.

-Like I just said, find someone who can develop a quality special teams unit. I don't care how it's done, but our ST's are absolutely abysmal.

-With the defense, I'm not opposed to finding a proven DC, but with the direction that this young defense is headed, continuity is key IMO. Keep the staff together on that side of the ball and stay the course.

What say the rest of you?

I'm glad the guys with the big pocket books have more perspective than a lot of people. GBR!

Ameer Abdullah, best RB in the B1G

28 October 2013 - 07:44 PM

During a time when there's so much negativity flowing around this board, one enormous bright spot of this team this season has been Ameer Abdullah. Here is a graphic of his performance in B1G conference games this year so far. Notice how he has played 1 less game than the others but still has nearly as many yards as the conference leaders. We are truly blessed to have him on our team.

Other mascots that should not be allowed

This thread will go along with the uproar about the Redskins name, partly meant for mocking the situation, mostly for fun.

As someone who grew up on a farm, I am offended by the term Aggie. It's time for the teams with that mascot to change it.

Ready, GO!
