to play football, not to play trumpet
Ah, this is a nice start to the Thanksgiving fixin's.
A couple of highlights:
- "Worst loss in Urban's career."
It's my responsibility to remind you Meyer lost a home game to Houston Nutt.
- "first thing Urban needs to do is fire his OC, second thing he should do is apologize to all the Buckeye fans that sat in the rain and cold today to see a completely tanked atrocious effort from the team"
"I'm sorry the weather sucked."
- "Screw firing Warriner, Beck, Ash, and Fickell. How about firing the guy that hired Withers and Beck and cost us a shot at 2 nattys by being beaten by 3 star recruits, who were coached by a guy that knows how to get more out those 3 star recruits than ours does out of 4 and 5 stars. Welcome to goatland Urban. Enjoy your time on the shit list. Thanks for the natty. Better enjoy it. You're gonna need it this off season."
THE HONEYMOON'S OVER URBAN PACK YOUR SHIT
An offering ("BRADY HOKE IS FULL OF BAD IDEAS AND IS NOT A GOOD COACH AND HERE IS AN EXTENDED WORLD WAR TWO METAPHOR TO PROVE IT") from EDSBS:
It was posted mid-day yesterday on that site, but (SIAP) I didn't see it here. Hat tip to Touch The Banner.
Wasn't sure if we wanted the full title on the board, but Hatin' Ass Spurrier is back, with a dig at us and a better one for MSU.
Now Michigan State fans know what it woulda felt like to get off the UM wait list.
Edited the title. We'll go with some Yiddish.
Great read from "Orson", Spencer Hall over at EDSBS. At the risk of blockquoting the whole thing... just go read it
There is money someone earned over here, visibly earned through labor and special talent. There are people over here who have it. Something stands between them. To extend that point to its logical conclusion: Either what is going on is a vast confusion of what constitutes capital, or it is theft from every single football player that plays this stupid game to enrich a coach, athletic director, and the university. This is a system that willfully commits one of the greatest insults possible: making someone poorer, and then claiming that poverty as a necessary, virtuous and good thing. That's a lie, and anyone who's even been broke for a short time knows it. Pay them. Pay them what you owe them. Pay them because the worst American tradition is taking things that aren't yours and calling it destiny or virtue or principle. Pay them because there is no nobility in keeping someone a dollar poorer than they have to be in exchange for honest work. Pay them because any system that deliberately makes people poorer is one of designed cruelty, even at this relatively small scale. Pay them their goddamn money.
I laughed out loud (yes, I'm old) so many times while reading this beautiful piece by Ryan Nanni over at EDSBS: http://www.everydayshouldbesaturday.com/2014/10/3/6901217/week-6-as-previewed-by-dave-brandons-email

RE: Texas A&M-Mississippi State
If you think football's more important that handbell choir syncopation, by all means. Those bumpkins couldn't jangle out a rudimentary version of "Lo, How A Rose E'er Blooming" if their miserable lives depended on it
P.S. Kevin Sumlin eats burritos with his hands. It's repulsive.

RE: LSU at Auburn
Have we considered a second disinformation campaign spreading negative rumors about Leslie Miles, and thus eliminating any insurgency campaign supporting those who wish to see him reigning o'er Schembechler Hall? This is spitballing, but consider:
--Waited three hours in an 18th century wardrobe just to slap Lloyd Carr at an antique store
--Engaged in sex with Gary Moeller's wife, AND did not fill out the appropriate paperwork with the Big Ten Conference prior to the liason
--Is from Ohio (we have documentation to support this, I believe?)
--Has only read the prose version of The Iliad. No, this is too far. Forgive my momentary lack of scruples.
Does not wear a tuxedo while enjoying games of chance such as "bin-go" or "swim-ming"
Is that true about Les Miles only having read the prose Iliad? That IS terrible. Les didn't take Great Books as a freshman? Give me Lattimore's translation or give me death.
