Events that disappointed more than the SI story
The first one.
NO WAIT THE SECOND ONE
I'll take this thread for disappointment:
Featuring this post:
How about some love for me...
The Nintendo Power Glove
Call of Duty: Black Ops
Is it that complicated?
If you were disappointed in that ill take it that you were on the receiving end.
Star Wars Episodes 1-3
Ha! I was just talking about this today. I wish they were never made.
my poor, poor soul...
I have to agree. She was nowhere good as everybody said.
EDIT:Just saw Mgrowolds comment, please disregard.
non-deletion of this space wasting thread.
The 2007 season and the 2010 MSU game.
As a human being....
Radiohead's last album is up there.
Maine lobster. Dunno if it was just the restaurant or if I'm just not a lobster guy, but for $30+ it was extremely bland.
I have to agree with you about Maine lobster. I personally like the lobster I can catch out here on the west coast better than Maine lobsters.
I really enjoyed Amnesiac and OKC, but also liked In Rainbows.
King of Limbs did nothing for me. Two listens and I haven't touched it since.
IMO, Lobster is only good if it is extremely fresh. Like caught the same day fresh. Anything else just doesn't cut it and I'm definitely not shelling out the money for something I know I'll only be disappointed about.
next time either mix vinegar in with the butter, or ditch the butter altogether and go with vinegar.
It is best when cooked in a bed of seaweed over hot coals on the beach, or at least boiled in saltwater with seaweed.
I live in Dallas, hence the name Dallas Wolverine. My neighbor two doors down is a huge tosu fan, I have not seen him in two days must be fuckinf that fat bitch he lives with and drunk. By the way his flag is down and mine if flying proud!
Hail to the Victors!
This thread reminds me of the board game "Things." If anyone is looking for a fun game, that's a great recommendation.
The new Lady Ga...dah, I mean the new [insert tough rap/rock album name].
What exactly was so disappointing about the article? No, a point shaving ring and prostitution scandal weren't brought up, but do you know what was?
NINE more active players that were implicated, including 4 possible defensive starters for OSU. Drug allegations. Pryor raiding the Osu equipment closet and selling it. Rose bowl tickets traded for a Tahoe. If you were actually disappointed by this article, you seriously need to temper your expectations.
Not to mention, without this article, tressel would likely still be the Ohio state head coach.
This. Anyone hoping for a nuclear bomb was probably wasting their time. But this story does two things:
1) portrays the Ohio State program in one of the worst lights imaginable: associating with dirtbags and felons, Terrelle Pryor stealing from the equipment room (but everybody steals), smoking weed like it's their job, lying, backstabbing, and all the salacious embarrassing crap.
2) shows that the OSU admin wasn't telling the truth about "these are the only six players, there is no pattern of noncompliance here, we don't have a problem, no sir" - in fact, just the opposite was true: OSU football is practically defined by hanging out in tattoo parlors in the worst parts of town.
And SI has all the details and you can bet they'll be more than compliant when the NCAA comes ringing.
I'm comfortable calling the article a game changer because it shows OSU has had a systemic problem, but even still I think most people were expecting more because it seemed to prompt Tressel's dismissal.
It shows a lack of institutional control because it hasn't been going on with just a few current players, but jobs, money and perks since 2002.
This. plus its starting to make maurice Clarrett look like the Jose Canseco of O$U
The tatt thing is certainly sleazy. Ultimately, though, I don't think people care all that much that some kids sold jerseys for tatts. It's just not the biggest deal. And it doesn't suggest a competitive advantage.
Lake Michigan had come pouring in.
Guiding players to Alumni who gave handouts, cars, players saying when they were recruited they heard about it from guys...hardly just memorabilia for tatts.
I was so hyped for that movie and was so disappointed.
seen it. Previews looked great. Is it a 'wait for video' disappointment or ' not as good as the first' disappointment?
The Hangover 2 is not nearly as bad as critics have portrayed it to be. I saw both of them opening weekend and can honestly say that for a seqeul it holds up really well.
I could stand the recycled plot and wayyy over-the-top antics if the movie was funny, but it's just not. When even Galifianakis' jokes fall flat, you know there's a problem.
That being said, it's one of the most quality-disputed films I've ever seen. If you think it looks interesting, go into it with an open mind and you may very well love it.
I did, and thought it sucked, but YOU might...
bush. My first time will be forever scarred.
that movie was hyped up like no other
The Hangover 2.
a junglechops "anal" comment.
I knida thought it was great that tat-gate has been going on since 2002, and has involved an additional 22 players. This is all great stuff, today has been a glorious day for me. I've done nothing but gloat seeing as how i live just outside of columbus and my wife and her family are all tosu fans, and i just couldnt pass up on the chance.
Somebody gets to be big spoon tonight.

Ow fuck my soul AGAIN! Next you're going to post a picture of GERG and that hair he used to trap me into thinking he wasn't totally worthless for so long....
Charlie Sheen's first webcast. I was there after he had gone nuts on TV, watching online. And then he just banters with his friends and says nothing. That probably killed the whole Charlie Sheen craze.
College. There ended up being way too many classes I was expected to attend.
College rocks :(
Did you go to Michigan
1.) Most new/improved soft drinks.
2.) The "next" Joel Zumaya comeback.
3.) Trying on someone's dentures.
Greedy. This story has legs
Pryor's throwing arm.
Comment of the night
John Kuester as HC.
from John Kuester?
1) The Las Vegas strip. For some reason the constant smell of diarrhea just dosent do it for me.
2) The 2008 football season.
Disappointing article. But the quote describing him reading the bible in the morning, and then cheating kids at the raffle in the afternoon? Priceless. "That's Jim Tressel."
Aaah you beat me by 3 minutes! I had the blockquotes though.
The biggest disappointment to me was the pettiness of Tressel's villainry. This is Keystone Kops material. Mustache-twirling material:
One of Tressel's duties then was to organize and run the Buckeyes' summer camp. Most of the young players who attended it would never play college football, but a few were top prospects whom Ohio State was recruiting. At the end of camp, attendees bought tickets to a raffle with prizes such as cleats and a jersey. According to his fellow assistant, Tressel rigged the raffle so that the elite prospects won -- a potential violation of NCAA rules.
Says the former colleague, who asked not to be identified because he still has ties to the Ohio State community, "In the morning he would read the Bible with another coach. Then, in the afternoon, he would go out and cheat kids who had probably saved up money from mowing lawns to buy those raffle tickets. That's Jim Tressel."
I couldn't get past an early comment. You didn't like Crystal Pepsi? That shit rocked.
I can't speak for the original commenter but I was on team Crystal Tab. Which is doubly sad since neither Tab nor Crystal Tab isn't around anymore.
As predicted in May 2011
They had an OSU-themed stoner den at the tat parlor--and they had Bo in there too:
On the second floor of the nondescript building that houses Fine Line Ink, Rife created the ultimate Ohio State-themed man cave. Huge photographs hung on walls painted scarlet and gray. Images of Hayes and former Michigan coach Bo Schembechler sandwiched a picture of Ohio Stadium. There were shots from the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, where the Buckeyes won the national title, including one of Tressel. Signature-covered jerseys were displayed, and on a small table was an autographed helmet encased in glass. A large sectional couch sat in front of a big flat-screen television that was hooked up to a PlayStation3.
Dohrmann is getting torn to pieces on Twitter. Everyone is saying "You thought you forced Tressel's resignation with THIS?"
i think that was just the teaser. They want to save the real juicy stuff for the actual magazine so people will buy it
Chappelle's Show Season 3
Good one. That was such a letdown.
Albert Haynesworth. What a pile of shit.
I think SI is holding some of the info back based on the verbiage. You know, playing it close to the vest.
...next time I have a desire to stare at cavernous vaginas and c-section scars, I'll save myself some money and go volunteer at the local maternity ward.
You can do that? Zoinks! Fap fap fap.
You should try a more reputable strip club.
Losing my virginity. All 10 seconds of it. A little too excited.
I second this. I was completely let down with my own experience.
All this hype and can't ever seem to get a good score!
Being an adult, the Sopranos finale, 09-10 Michigan basketball... in reverse order.
The NeverEnding Story... turns out it was only 102 minutes, not quite the value I thought I would get out of it.
is that it identifes the big story here -- how so many players got cars they couldn't afford -- and then focuses on a smaller story -- the tattoos.
I don't care about the fancy room at the tattoo parlor with the Playstation. I want to know about the cars. That's the story that brings down the athletic department and the Gordon Gee, not just the coaching staff.
It doesn't peg him that much for lying either. I'm surprised they didn't more fully cover how he did not report - which may seem reasonable, but in doing so he played key players that would have been ruled ineligible. And then he signed a document, and on and on.
Musberger did a better job covering this aspect on ESPN yesterday morning.
I should have known but as a Lions fan I had hope...
The Matt Millen era in general.
