  1. So...Oregon, Washington and ND to the B1G? Nice!
  2. Donations and smokes? Where can I mail some Marlboro cigs? So for a couple cases of cigarettes we can overthrow a country? NICE!!
  3. All of our OL guys are projects.
  4. In this new world, you just keep working it, so if there is a place he needs to transfer to latter.
  5. See, the most lively NBA conversation in a while.
  6. There is not much difference between the NBA and pro wrestling.
  7. The fear has always been that people don't want to vote third party because it would elect the candidate from the party they hate the most. I voted third party in 2020. It was the greatest feeling ever. I didn't vote for the lesser of 2 evil's. Look, unless these 2 die before election day, we are stuck with them. One is insane and evil. The other seems to have some mental health issues. I will vote for someone else again in 2024.
  8. This is where I am at. Also, we can't have more electives in HS because all of the mandated testing to graduated. As a private school we have shop classes and culinary arts. In this area, much of that has been cut at the city public schools. I think there is some of it in suburban schools, but not enough.
  9. Then let society pay for it, not students. It is a complete waste to make kids take classes that replicate the HS experience. This is why so many HS now offer dual credit so that the kids don't have to waste money on taking essentially the same classes over in college. Our top students are not taking these classes again in college. Some are graduating college in 3 years with taking a few summer school classes. My son chose a college that has no general ed. He has been knee deep in engineering classes starting his first semester his first year. He gets to take a few classes in what he wants to take. They tell the kids do what you are good and and do what you love. If kids don't know what they want to do? Take General Studies. If you know what you want to do, jump in and have at it. We spend more time educating ALL kids before 18 than most countries in the world. Remember, when taking special needs kids out of the numbers when testing in our country, we do fine. Many countries don't educate these kids in the same way we do. I would be curious what colleges around the world do with general ed.
  10. Yes, but some degrees can guarantee it will be really hard to find one. The best plan for college in this Gen Ed. days is to go to a 2 year college and pay nothing to get your 1 year of wasteful Gen Ed credit out of the way, then go to a 4 year college. Better yet, go in the trades. Our HVAC company hired a kid out of our shop class a few months ago. He starts June 1st. We have a major building project going on our campus. The electricians have been talking to our shop classes about going into their field. Some kids are listening. Most of the people working in this project are older. Someone needs to replace them soon.
  11. You want to make college affordable? Make the colleges co-sign the loans. Only lend money to those getting college degrees that lead directly to jobs.
  12. Get rid of Gen. Ed. That is what HS is for. My son goes to a school with no Gen Ed. Except for a few classes that the kids can pick. Gen Ed. Waste of time, waste of money.
  13. 2 things, this is a D-3 school and their rules are a little different. My son could have heard it wrong.
  14. The Covid thing is crazy. My son competes against a kid who is a 6th year thrower in hammer. He is working full time and taking 1 class and is competing. My son won't end up using his covid year. Too many bills to pay and too much life to get on with.
  15. I have seen coverage here on the local news. This is with all of the shootings in the Cleveland. The last several years there have been a ton of drive by shootings.
  16. As much as we are paying Scott Frost he should wear the Herbie Husker outfit this year.
  17. We have work to do. It now starts in the win column. Get back to 8 and 9 wins and this takes care of itself.
  18. I think the reaction to this whole thing is over the top. Who freaking cares. God forbid there is a little competitive banter and taunting in GBB. Imagine if you could see or hear the crap in football. Before and during the game. Is this is because it is women? At least nobody punched anyone like in the Memphis-Bowling Green game.
  19. I don't have much to say about most of the conversation here. But I wanted to discuss a lot of what I learned from a School Safety Summit I attended last summer. I didn't really want to go because I had to miss 3 days of FB practice, but it was interesting. Things I found interesting: Statistically speaking, the safest place a child ever is, is at school. They are much more likely to get hurt by violence at home or in their neighborhood. This was from a presentation by the Secret Service who collects data on all school attacks. The fear is that the new target is going to be school buses. Most of the school attacks are not ideological, but they think that is going to be the next wave. They did not explain what they thought that would be? The reason Ohio passed a law allowing teachers to carry is because in rural school districts the police may be 20 minutes away at any given time. I had never thought of that before. That could be a serious issue. Our board voted that we would never allow it on our campus. The only thing that stops an active shooter is how long it takes for the police to get there. Most shootings are planned out and someone probably knew about it. The best things for schools to do is for every child to have at least one adult who is constantly checking on them. I found the conference very helpful and informative. It was emotional at times, and terrifying. The most interesting thing is that in the sectionals I attended, they never addressed guns as something to fix, but dealt with the human element. Many there probably would like to get rid of guns, but they understood that is not something they have control over and they just want to save lives.
  20. Is there a character with their head up their butt for Iowa?
  21. I am hearing here that Ohio State is not very good on the NIL side of things. Not sure if you are hearing it too? Not just lack of money but also lack of organization too.
  22. $EC, $EC, $EC!! If they care more, why are they not paid more??
  23. The Bias towards the SEC is ridiculous.
  24. I think it is mostly a large national push by people just pushing against Biden. I keep getting told that republicans are against it, but I don't personally know any.
