    I haven't ridden it, but that model isn't unique to Cincinnati. Public transportation in other cities that do that too.

    Obviously. I was talking about the overall cost to build, maintain, run, etc.

    Did you see 18.0? I wouldn't mind doing that one as part of open.

    Chad is a good friend of mine and a good guy. Very talented guy - incredible trumpet player (played at my dad's funeral).

    One other thing... for most crossfit workouts the prescribed weight for a male is 53 and for a female is 35. That might give you some insight too.

    At my gym the options are 35 pounds, 44 pounds, and 53 pounds (there are ones that are lighter and ones that are heavier, but these are the ones I use). I have a hard time just using my hips and so if the rep scheme is high then I tend to lean 44 or even 35 at times (to lessen the lower back strain); however, if it is workout that calls for a low number of reps (even if sets are high) then I will use the 53. More often than not I use the 44,...

    I have been on this site since almost the beginning. That was 17 years ago. At that point I was running a lot. I would do 3-4 marathons a year. I was never very fast, but I could consistently run a 4 hour marathon. My wife and I may try to run the 1/2 Flying Pig in May, but we haven't run 13 miles in sometime so I expect even that to be slow. We will probably try to do an obstacle race/mud run or two this year. My cardio is good for my...

    I have given up too. I am just there to maintain some level of fitness and strength.

    My backsquat 1 RM is 300, my deadlift 1 RM is 375, and my bench is 225. I should know my clean and jerk, but I don't. Snatches, overhead squats, even front squats are all very limited by poor shoulder mobility - partially do never working on it, but probably my age impacts it as well. I would be happy for small gains in these three lifts. How to define small - not sure - maybe 50 pounds on backsquat and deadlift. Maybe 25 pounds on bench.

    I enjoy your posts. Wished you lived in NKY, I would enjoy training with you; however, my guess is you are much stronger than an OLDbird. :D

    I don't think Archie Miller was ever going to go to Pitt. There was time when the climb up the coaching ladder meant that coaches would jump to any rung, which was perceived slightly higher than the one they were on (Thad Matta going from Butler to Xavier). Now coaches will stay put (see Shaka, see Gregg Marshall, see Archie) until one of the few truly great jobs comes open. Dixon went home to TCU (his alma mater). They have never been...

    Pitt lowered Jamie Dixon's buyout in order to get rid of him. How crazy is that? Dixon is a great coach and I have my doubts that Pitt will ever get anyone as good as him.

    They look great and you did an awesome job. Can you give us an idea of how much time and money it takes to do something like you are doing?

    Is there a previous case with similar issues or facts that would set a precedent in this case OR is the argument that the Commissioner has the disecretion to waive Bylaw 6, he has done it in the past, and should again in this specific case?

    Nice math.... I guess. NKU through 6 dates this year is averaging just under 3,200 per game. NKU last year through 6 dates was averaging just over 1,900. What does that project out to over the course of the season? I do not know; however, I can tell you there has been a boost to date. Rome wasn't built in a day. This is a program I believe in its 6 year at D-1 level, its second year of being eligible for the tourney, with just one...
