Re: Handheld tools!

I really only see the ryobi one up at the Home Depot over by there. Has anyone enjoyed theirs? Any recommendations? I can rec the one+ system. I have one battery that stays in the charger on my workbench and my post-mow routine includes an edging, trimming, and blowing. And there is plenty of power...

Re: Gas Fireplace Insert Maintenance and Repairs

UPDATE: I did everything I could, which wasn't much, so we bit the bullet and had the guy come out. Turns out it was rainwater coming back through the exterior vents, which flooded the system. They installed a new shield over the vent, and covered all costs, so there was that. It was likely a combo ...

Gas Fireplace Insert Maintenance and Repairs

We have a gas fireplace insert in our living room. Went to switch it on this week because #autumn, and only the central flame stays lit, it doesn't spread. This isn't our exact model but it's close, for reference... https://www.firepatio.com/store/Cosmo-I30-p141913976 I called the installer and they...

Best Weed Fabric/Control

We are losing a battle to an abundance of thistle that exists on the other side of the back fence line in our back yard. At first it was just a couple spots here and there that had grown under the fence and popped up in the yard/mulch barrier, but now it's out of control. So my plan was to get a bru...

Secondary Market or Disposal Options for Used and Damaged Electronics

We had a lightening surge a few months ago that damaged a number of electronics in the house (TVs, receivers, etc.). Some were able to be repaired, insurance covered the rest. I have a couple of larger items, most notably a nice Pioneer receiver, that was replaced due to some damage to internal comp...

I honestly don't even know what this means. Some of y'all will find any reason to complain about 21st century football, man. Just turn off the TV if it's that irksome!

Re: 2021 College Football Season

I didn't like to see that Ronnie Bell is out for the season. I want TTUN and the Bucks to be 100% healthy for The Game. I think it is good for the B1G and college football. I also didn't like to see Ibrahim go out with that calf injury. I agree re: Bell, you never want to see anyone go down and you...

Re: 2021 College Football Season

Interesting movement in the Coaches/AP polls (which, yes, I know...LOLPolls). PSU at 11/13 scares me, because that offense was LARGE YAWN. https://www.espn.com/college-football/rankings Didn't look good...but Wisconsin is a top 10 defense. Aside from Ohio St, that's likely the best defense you will...

Any issue with dropping prodiamine and urea granules and watering them in at the same time?

Re: 2021 College Football Season

I refuse to watch college or proffesional sports due the invasion of politics and utter hypocrisy involving current events. You should too. Only until the money stops flowing will they realize theyve made a mistake. On top of it, all the announcers are idiots and the commercials have ruined the gam...

Re: 2021 College Football Season

I hear you on all fronts. And I just don't think we have the depth or manpower to run with OSU this year, even with them replacing arguably the greatest QB to have ever played there (after committing to us first, but that's a rage-tantrum for another day). Luckily I'll be at a wedding in Philly duri...

We have Wisconsin on the road to start, so I have an extra week to prep my tailgate game. Finally got my parking passes, so I'm all set. Not sure what to expect this season but I guess I'll know a lot more after the first game! Color me cautiously optimistic. As I wrote above, this season will rise...

Re: 2021 College Football Season

I'm actually not sure what the NIL deals for college kids will be worth vs the NFL NIL deals tbh. Like you mentioned, there will be exceptions. I think the NIL earnings potential for star NFL players will greatly outpace that of college NIL deals. That said, there are a lot of non-NFL football craz...

Re: 2021 College Football Season

The problem is the amounts they would get in NIL money vs. NFL money. By way of reference, Kyle Trask was the 6th QB off the board in the early 2nd round this past draft. His rookie contract is for ~$1.5MM/year. St. Brown's rooking contract was ~$1.1MM/year. There is simply no way in h*** anyone wit...

They very well may have, I was just busting chops. Though, that said, I'm not sure that level of money is going to factor in here.

Well T. Boone died two years ago, so I'd be very interested to see how he invests his money! But I see what you're saying, and I don't necessarily disagree. You'll have Phil Knight throwing Nike money at Oregon, Kevin Plank throwing UA money at Maryland, etc. It will be fun to watch, that's for sure...

Penn State fan here, I know there are a few others out there lurking. My PSU/Big Ten/Alliance hot takes: PSU Our ceiling is directly tied to 1) starting QB play and 2) health of the defense.
