I always wanted a wood burning stove

guess I didn't want it that much

been in this house since 89, no immediate plan to install a stove yet
We had one when I was growing up. After having to cut and split wood, carry it in every day and clean up after it, I am happy to say I hope to never have one again.

Now that JT Barrett is all done, I wanted to revisit his statistical claim.  Despite OSU fans wanting his head each season and being uber-critical of him, if you look at his numbers:
he was basically Antwaan Randle El as a rusher + Chuck Long as a passer + throw in Jeff George's career TDs to boot.

In this age of 11-1 not being enough and Heisman-type talents having a bad quarter from time to time, the way this young man was treated was disgraceful.  

More TD and fewer INT than Brees.  Ran for more yards than Keith Byars.  Same number of rushing TD as Ezekiel Ellitott and Saquan Barkley.  

I have no special interest in the guy, just an objective observer.  His production and OSU's success with him at QB should make him an icon, not a guy whose support went up and down like a roller coaster.  
I'll never understand it either. The kid was just balls. Was there a mistake here and there? Sure. Just like any human.

Just wait until next year when everyone grumbles on why we can't run the read option.  He'll get his due.

Yep. You don't know what you got until it's gone. Of course, the new guy looks pretty good so who knows.

What JT did he did well,what he couldn't do wasn't addressed.Funny Saban recognized a QB similar to JT wasn't getting it done so he went to the bull pen.Burrow/Haskins could accurately sling it deep thus stretching the field.I was in the camp that Haskins/Burrow could be rotated with JT for greater flexibility/results.Urban did this with great effectiveness with Leak/Tebow winning the SEC & MNC.JT had the benefit of 3 All Big Tenners Price/Jones/Jordan on the O-Line.Price & Jones are off to the NFL - they will be missed.Not sure if Jordan is staying.The problem moving forward will be the O-Line not who follows under center IMO

as we said on the Big 12 board, "it's all about the trench ponies"

I moved to Phx over the summer, too.  And I've only been to the North Rim....

Orange, been meaning to ask where exactly you lived in Northern AZ? During my college years in Tucson I spent a summer in Chinle, making plenty of stops through Many Farms, Window Rock, Gallup, and the rail towns on I-40. Can't think of a landscape I grew to appreciate more than the Navajo Lands.

It is beautiful for sure.  Just like Tony Hillerman describes in all those Jim Chee and Leaphorn novels.  After reading that series of books, I had to visit, see those landscapes, and eat some fry bread.  It was worth the trip.

Pinon.  45 min due west of Chinle.  Spent 8 years there, somehow.

Oh, and I guess I'll mention the wife and I split about 7 months ago. We still live only like 7 miles apart and have been for the most part amicable so it hasn't been too tough on the kids thankfully. It's not ideal but it could be worse.

Wow, Tyler Hilinski, the WSU QB, who played the Holiday Bowl, dead of an apparent self inflicted gunshot wound.

Terrible news.
