Ahhh, but you failed to consider the points that he accumulated with the wifey that he'll cash in later tonight. And I don't mean Chase Freedom points.
OK I'M DONE WITH SIX ZERO
Crap, I left all my points on the field. Bummer.
Living here in Oregon I have seen proven Wife Day strategies being played out all around me, I think it is obvious that SIx Zero needs to look to the west coast to bolster his offense. The Oregon Wife Day experience is everything that has been promised and more. The ability of wives to wear those ridiculous outfits and still get their husbands to say they look pretty has come up huge every week. The wrinkles that have been installed by the offense, and the ability to steer the offense towards Best Buy at will is something that seems to be almost routine in Oregon.
It has become glaringly obvious that Six Zero needs to look to Oregon to more fully develop his offense and improve by next Wife Day.
Oregon has no sales tax. It will never work in the Midwest. Why does everyone always forget this? Unreal.
Until I see the UFR I'm not going to judge Six Zero. Not to make any excuses but the weather was beautiful this weekend and even without football the urge to do some Yard Work had to be strong. Also, he is newly married and his wife is prone to making stupid proclomations and rash judgements that a more experienced wife would save for Holiday weekends when his options are much more limited. I think he did pretty well with what he had to work with, and by next season, with the added experience and off-season conditioning, things could be much better.
If all goes well, by this time next season he could actually enjoy a Big Game in which he has the dream Saturday featuring a 6 a.m. blow job, breakfast in bed, 4 hours of tailgating with his best buddies (while his wife sits home knitting him a dick warmer), The Game itself featuring a 31-7 spanking of OSU, a DD ride home, and finishing off with a brandy on the couch watching the tail end of the Alabama-LSU game on TV.
I think Six Zero needs a bit more time to implement his program.
Six Zero doesn't yet have all the parts to succesfully run the new system, and he needs time. Although the lack of electronics is disappointing, I've been a Six Zero supporter since day one, and this shakes me, but you've got to let him get his parts into the new system!
ALL YOU DO his listen to Brian and his lackeys get behind Six Zero!! I'M THE ONLY ONE NOT AFRAID TO TELL THE TRUTH !! UNACCEPTABLE!!
I negged you because I neg everybody who comes on here and says anything that is different than what I think. How dare you criticize Six Zero.
When we didn't get Muppets tonight.
is far too smart to mix Wife Day® with Miss Piggy.
Has already been registered?!?
Man, first I miss out on "Threepeat", and now this...
He hasn't brought in the necessary 4 and 5 star shopping defensive excuses that would enable someone in his position to excel at controlling the wife at the store. It just takes time.
Mike Hart was 3 star. Six Zero has had plenty of time to get a functional defense!!!!! It's his fault he has no talent on defense.
it's coaching! Stupid mistakes today! Thats Six Zero!! He's pulling the wool over your eyes!!!
Is Six Zero the coach? the team? the AD? the GERG?
Screw it. FIRE MILLEN!!!
Did anyone get some quotes from the post-game interviews?
"Got my wife cornered near the exit of Marshall's before she split the gap between myself and the mannequin and found an open opening near clearance. It's a simple matter of execution, and it's on no one but myself. I promise you, this'll never happen again."
...Those fuckin cut-back lanes
That's because he didn't execute his assignment, which is to keep contain. I think, when this exchange is picture-paged, you'll see that he took a step to the inside of the 40%-off sweater display near the door, and by doing so he sealed himself toward the middle of the checkout register.
I'm sure GERG didn't coach him to do that!!
I remember the days when Six Zero would crush Ann Taylor and Marshall Fields. This new fangled "outlet shopping" isn't going to work. He needs to get back to tough shopping - like when people use "lay-away" or "catalogs". This type of shopping will never work in Big Ten country.
I have been a SIX ZERO supporter from the start and a staunch critic of the old guard saying we need a change, but this is officially a garbage relationship. All you SIX ZERO apologists need to open your eyes. He has had one good year of marriage, but the honeymoon phase is over. He has had time to get his kids into the system but has repeatedly failed produce results. Whether this is a practice issue or one of going soft when the pressure is on doesn't matter.
The sooner all you morons stop making excuses for his bullsh*t and realize we need to get rid of SIX ZERO the sooner we can get Magnus in there and start fixing the culture of losing that has started to permeate here.
Just wait until he gets his credit cards in the system. The tables will turn. He is working out a sweet APR with Amex that will allow him to get that 55" Samsung at low, low interest. That's when his true value will come. BE PATIENT.
IT HASN'T GOTTEN BETTER BY NOW. IT WON'T. SIX ZERO'S OFFENSE WILL NEVER WORK IN THE BIG 10 STORES!!
Some further thoughts:
- Six Zero quotes the Lion King, whereas Mrs. Six Zero's former boyfriend used to quote Kipling and had the OED on a small table outside his office.
- Six Zero doesn't understand that although all stores are important, he has an historic rivalry with Abercrombie and Fitch and Dick's Sporting Goods.
- Six Zero tried to give the #1 salesperson jersey to a stock clerk.
- Six Zero has a funny accent.
WHEN CAN WE HIRE DAVID FROM WYOMING? HE IS DOING GREAT IN PALO ALTO! COME ON BRANDON! GET A BRAIN, MORANS!
Who knows how to avoid shopping. But do you really want to go through 3 more years of rebuilding excuses to not go shopping?
He just doesnt understand these big rivalries! Ughh
Vs. Banana Republic?
I saw a lot of promise out there today. Even though he wasn't able to extricate himself from Bed, Bath and Beyond, some of his distractions showed real talent. Give him two years working on fundamentals and gaining some maturity, and I think he has a great shot of going undefeated on Wife Day in 2012.
GTFO troll! Six Zero represents this university whether you like it or not. What Six Zero needs right now is our support... your negativity ISN'T HELPING. Seriously you think you're picking out things Six Zero doesn't already realize... he's been doing his thing, with an FBS wife for YEARS. You idiots think you can diagnose what's wrong with a guys defense because you once played a few downs with your fat little girlfriends in high school. If you knew anything you'd know that the attrition has KILLED Six Zero's talent level. That can only be cured with time and recruiting, but your negativity is HURTING RECRUITING. THIS MAKES ME SO ANGAR. Your negativity is a CANCER to this board, the fan base and the program. Screw you.
Also, mods, please bump the point total to start threads to at least 50,000.
A lot of Six Zero's strategies can work in the realm of online shopping, but he HAS to understand that this is the Outlet Mall. You need to be mentally and physically strong to be successful at the outlet. You need to game plan that. There's no time for comparison shopping, there's no time to fumble around with the map when the warm September breezes turn into the chilling winds of November and he's schlepping around in the sleet and the snow.
He just don't get it. The new fangled ways aren't going to cut it here. We need someone who understands outlet shopping. Someone who cut their teeth at Birch Run, who has eaten a pound of bacon from Tony's in the morning, and a full Frankenmuth dinner in the evening. Someone who knows the Michigan traditions and holds them dear.
Six Zero is a good man, an honorable man, but he's not the right man for this program.
It's on its way.
I graduated in 2002. I don't my university represented by this LOSER!!! HOW DARE YOU ATTEMPT TO SILENCE ME !! AND TAKE AWAY MY FREEDOM OF SPEECH!!
IF I THOUGHT I WAS GOING TO BE TREATED BY COMMUNISTS BY just telling the truth. I'll just take my talents to WLA!!!
How can you even call yourself a fan?! YOU HAVE TO HAVE FAITH. I'm glad you "fans" are jumping off the bandwagon. GOOD RIDDANCE, WE ARE BETTER OFF WITHOUT YOU. I personally am confident Six Zero will spend 100% of his remaining disposable income this year on electronics and beer.
I AM NOT JUMPING OFF THE BANDWAGON!! i love this program! Six Zero is not the answer. his offense only works against small teams!! It deonst matter if he spends all his money on beer ane elelctronics if he can't win the big ones!!!!
that SIX ZERO had been browsing nearby the Best Buy store and staking out possible purchases for longer than the amount of time legally allotted each day by league rules. These rules violations are UNACCEPTABLE in such a storied program such as SIX ZERO'S. Who does he think he is? Mrs. SIX ZERO's ex-boyfriend ran a clean program. He would never use a checkout clerk with an arrest record, let me tell you.
Hold on. We all know that the reports of the extended purchase consideration time came from a columnist for Nobody Beats The Wiz's internal newsletter who clearly has an axe to grind with Best Buy and Six Zero. We have just as many people at Best Buy saying that Six Zero was focused and on task and simply didn't turn in his paper work. They eventually tracked him down on his extended warranty, but now the damage is done.
It's frustrating, because we know every guy in the country lingers in front of various purchases at Best Buy for an extended period of time. Six Zero just happened to get caught by someone who has an agenda.
we knew that shopping was evil.
Six Zero shredded all the receipts, in the office late at night, didn't he? I knew it. Now nothing can even be taken back.
the wife has been taking Six Zero on an awful lot of weeknight shopping trips. Word is that the freep is publishing a story monday
Will there even be a "next year"? It's a very long off season.
He's recruiting a much better caliber of store. Didn't you see how he had steal good shot of landing Best Buy? Boze? He just needs time to get his kinda store in. All he has now is a Radio Shack kiosk at the mall across from Forever 21, and it's only been open for one season. It didn't even get to redshirt.
Very crude. Somebody is probably on top of a better one.
Did you see that guy who six-zero was talking to in the parking lot? The guy with the real swagger and dragging his wife into Best Buy? A domineering, no-nonsense dude with no patience for wife day? Yes Please.
This thread inspired me to, after reading the site for about a couple years (since i started attending umich) sign up with an account. I laughed multiple times.
For the record, I don't think SixZero's offense will be as effective closer to the post thanksgiving shopping season. The cold makes the spread less effective...
You don't think it's cold shopping in West Virginia sometimes?? It's not like they Don't have outdoor malls there too, y'know.
I refuse to go crazy one way or the other without first seeing the UFR. I know if we will be patient till wed we will all see what really happened instead of overreacting like this.
I don't understand all the freak out until we see what really happened in Brian's UFR. Until then this is just a bunch of negative media attention Six Zero doesn't need right now without anything to substantially back up any claims.
BRIAN ISN'T A COACH. HE NEVERD PLAYED FOOTBALL. Why do you vlaue his opinion over what you can see with YOUR OWN EYES!!!
I SPEAK THE TRUTH!
Another one of these posts!!!!! There should be a minimum of 1 million points to post this crap.
i have more points that your NOOB! By having more points , my opinion matters more than yours!!
Tomorrow I'm going to have up a diary I'm calling "The Decimated AMEX". It's going to explain how SixZero got himself in this spot, and a lot of the shopping problems we're having now started with his wife before he even met her.
And there will be charts lots of charts.
We need scatter plots!
is all in tonight
Torrent is up on mgovideo. SD only though. Damn you espn.
Relax guys, we knew going into wifeday 2010 that Six Zero had little to no chance. He's still learning. I've said this since day 1 of his marriage-wifeday 2012 is judgement day. If he doesn't have his defense up and running by then, he should definitely get a divorce.
That's the bottom line isn't it? For some people it's not enough just to win, you need style points as well. Zero don't listen to these instant gratification simpletons... you did all right.
But he's never going to beat the day after Thanksgiving with a defense like that...
In spite of everything, Six Zero is just 1,000 frequent flier miles away from a round trip on his Visa WorldPerks card. My question to you is, do you guys think Six Zero can regroup from today's outing to spend wisely enough to get those last few critical miles before the Thanksgiving shopping season starts putting major restrictions on when he can use them.
Dude, Visa WorldPerks is no longer on this team. He transferred to Delta Skymiles AMEX and good riddance! Six Zero said himself during his press conference that WorldPerks wouldn't have helped him this year against Wife Day.
Let's just talk about credit cards who are ALL IN [the wallet] and not the cards who never even saw a single swipe.
It doesn't look like much now, but believe me, when those AMEX points mature and add up, this is going to be a special Christmas season. Just BE PATIENT!!!!
those who buy for SixZero.
(And Visa WorldPerks is no longer a SixZero man. After talking about his credit rating like that, after he left. He should just keep his big mouth shut).
WILL NO ONE THINK ABOUT WHAT SIX ZERO'S INABILITY TO GET OUT OF THE MALL AND GET BEST BUY BACK ON THE TABLE IS DOING TO LLOYD BRADY'S CHERUBIC GRIN?!?!?!?!?
Almost 60 replies in and no Lloyd Brady wife-day photoshop?
Even though we all love Six Zero's AMEX, which keeps breaking all kinds of team records, I really like what I saw out of the MasterCard for the couple of purchases when the AMEX was unavailable. I think Six Zero needs to use the MasterCard more. He's going to need it before the season is over.
I'm also SUPER EXCITED at the possibilities of using both cards at the same time. Imagine how confused the clerk will be - they won't know which card to accept!
While the Mastercard does provide a nice change of pace and is good to have in the wallet in case the AmEx can't go, I think the AmEx's intangibles, the lower interest rate, the hologram, the promise of extra miles, make it the right choice for the rest of the shopping season.
What I want to know is why he's carrying that new Visa around in his wallet if he's not even gonna use it? Was it really worth activating it just to purchase french fries at the food court? I think he should have kept it in the envelope until 2011. We're going to need it in a few years.
Six Zero needs to find a new source of credit. I understand there a number of five star credit card companies in the Orlando area that would love to make next year's Wife Day extrravaganza a win.
Loud noises!! CAPS LOCK!!!
/no better because I'm being dragged to see the social network by my gf.
If you're going to introduce a new system, then you need to implement it your way. Wife of Six Zero obviously has done brick and mortar shopping for years, it's what she knows best. Even if Six Zero's talents are more of the online variety, as the head coach of Shopping, she will do it her way. The talent, the computer system implemented by Six Zero, the large computer screen, the dual monitor system, all mean nothing. She will do it her way. The results in the early years of Wife Day were sometimes brutal; but now that Six Zero is a veteran of the system, he is performing close to the standards set by the fans of his wife.
Nice to read a truly funny thread.
Well done guys and or gals.
This thread needs to be bumped to Threadtopia or wherever the devil threads go when promoted.
this is even funnier cuz im drunk,.
I haven't been here long but this SIX ZERO stuff has been some of the funniest I've seen on MGoBlog
Props to everyone involved
Six Zero is limited in his planning for future Wife Days due to being caught spending too much time prepping for this Wife Day. It is UNACCEPTABLE to use the excuse that every husband spends too much time prepping for Wife Day.
Guyz I just heard from my cousin's cousin's cousin who is with the Ann Arbor PD that Six Zero's Visa was used to buy some booze for some kids that were turning 21 that day, but before their actual time of birth. Maybe that's why he keeps having to use his AMEX card despite the obviously better benefit program of the Visa???
Six Zero versus his Wife isn't even a rivalry anymore. It's been like 10+ years of watching her run all over him.
I am so f-ing sick of all these Wife trolls coming on here and acting like football will now cease to exist or something because you WON ONE FRIGGIN' WEEKEND!
Congratulations, Little Spousers, you picked a bye weekend and got us to spend a Saturday carrying your bags. Oh, and that wedding a few weeks ago. This doesn't change the fact that WE HAVE OWNED YOU for like 3,000 years!!!
Act like you've been there before!
I love it.
Ok Sorry I lost my cool last night. Watching Six Zero is incredibly frustrating, and I possibly drank too much.
Still i don't like where Six Zero is going. Penalties, Special team gaffs. No big plays on offense, sure he moves the chains with socks and shirts and pants, but when is he going to hit the homerun with the Surround Sound!!
AND HE DIDN'T EVEN COVER THE SPREAD!!
This goes back further than the switch to the shop-option. The last two years the kitchen cupboards were bare, leaving Six Zero hungry and susceptible to food court distractions, but before that there was a total country club attitude.
This is really really funny
I just want to say thank you.
God damnit guys, this is exactly why I don't come to the board until Sunday.
FFS this is how we end up in TWIS.
But then I went over to Mlive. Holy hell, are they laying into him over there.
There were absolutely no half time adjustments made. Unless there was a nagging injury that we couldn't see that occured in the first half to Six Zero. I blame coaching - although there should have been an unsportswomanlike conduct penalty on the wife when she asked if the dress she was trying on made her look fat.
I still blame Hopson
"That sequence in Pottery Barn, we'll look at that on film. Mistakes were made, we got all out of position. But it's one stupid store, what are you gonna do, hang me from the Sbarro's wall?"
I'm enjoying bagging on the guy, but I'm hoping we can also start debating the RAWK MUSIC that was playing over the PA at the American Eagle Outfitters.
