Why is every sports radio station called "The Fan"?
OT: New Redskins QB Kirk Cousins Will Be On the Radio at 9AM
I know in the case of The Fan in NYC and The Fan in DC they are both owned by CBS radio. This may be the case for other stations as well.
Shouldn't it say "New Redskins clipboard holder" ?
I prefer future ex-Redskin
You're forgetting that the Redskins still have Rex Grossman on the roster. He's going to be tough to beat for that coveted position.
You can never count out a spartan in that role. After All, they do have possibly the greatest active clipboard holder in Drew Stanton.
He does a great job holding it for Tom Brady and the Patriots.
From the sidelines
So if Griffin is RGIII, does that make Rex Grossman RG-Three and Out?
I love Rex Grossman jokes. I have a buddy that's a Bears fan and these were my favorites that he told me:
My BAC is higher than Rex Grossman's QB rating.
Rex Grossman threw me a birthday party but it was intercepted.
I know this is marked as "OT" and that's fine...but why do we care that Kirk Cousins is going to be on the radio? I wish we were at a point where we wouldn't care that a 4th round pick from Michigan State was going to make a radio appearance...
If "we" don't care, "we" can not click. Surely beats apartment hunting in SF.
I agree that we can just avoid clicking. I don't have a problem with this post individually. The point is more that I think we were once at a point where a mediocre MSU quarterback's radio appearance wouldn't have mattered to us at all...
Point taken. In fairness I only care because I listen to this radio program every morning and he happens to be on this morning. I'm not on Cousins watch. But, considering the amount of press he gets on the site, "Coupons" the Cousins Memee etc. I figured it would be harmless to share particularly compared to the "I dread mondays" and "Help me find an apartment" posts. At least the guy is an actual football player.
First, the "other people are doing stupid shit, so that makes my shit seem less stupid" rationale is a weak one. Beyond this, at least those random posts don't do anything to make MGoBlog as a whole look (even more) like a stalker ex-girlfriend with regards to Kirk Cousins. Your post does.
But since this is on a radio program you listen to regularly, I guess it does make sense that other people might care about it ...
EDIT: One last addendum. Remember when, even after Mike Hart graduated, MSU fans would talk shit about how short he was and how we wouldn't make it in the pros, and it made them look pretty pathetic because, after all, he beat them four years in a row? Man, Sparty gon' Spart, amirite?
No one has ever hit the nail on the head like you just did with that post.
But I finally got around to seeing Citzen Kane, highly recommend it!
unless I don't manage to post in one before it is deleted. I don't think to OT or not OT is the topic, it is just the fact that it's Cousins. Trust me when I tell you we know that a lot of people have posted about him. A lot of people do a lot of things - be different, be the guy who didn't post it.
cousins is a whiner and so i like to listen for purely schadenfruede reasons. schadenfruede is now my favorite word and brians schadenfruede posts during the season are reason for living. cousins on the radio is a schade-op and i there simply aren't enough of them to miss a single one.
Ending their win streak against us and starting one of our own is going to be the only thing that cures that.
Maybe at a point we were but I doubt it will ever be like that again. I'm from Iowa and am an Iowa State fan as well as Michigan fan. Since I am a fan of those teams, I see this big brother/little brother relationship from both sides. Just like Iowa likes to pretend they don't care about ISU, UM likes to pretend they don't care about MSU. The fact is, though, that as long as both are division 1 schools and they continue to play each other there will be a rivalry and both will care about said rivalry. It's a fun dynamic on both sides.
Actually Rex Grossman is Rex Grossman III so that makes him the original RGIII
You're starting to live up to your username.
Congrats to Captain Kirk. This pick proves again that MSU is the reigning "cradle of backup quarterbacks" for the NFL.
Why would we care? I'm sure hardly any of us here are Redskin fans, and none of us except for some trolls (and a few Sparties on here that don't cause trouble) care about Kork Coupons. I enjoy picking on the Spartans whenever I get a chance, but taking time out of my day to listen to a radio interview of our former rival QB is definitely the kind of obssesion I would except from a RCMB post. We just don't need that here.
Someone please, please let me know exactly what's in that radio interview. Even better, let's get Heiko to transcribe it.
Also, I've long wondered why we don't have more Kirk Cousins Twitter updates on here. Is anyone his Facebook friend? What we really need is to figure out where he's going to be living in D.C. ...
There should be a running tally of posts on MSU and OSU made here. You'd wonder how it could be claimed that this board cares more about OSU. Even on a day when OSU lost their bowl game and MSU won theirs the MSU bowl thread demolished the OSU one on number of posts.
Mods.....DESTROY THIS THREAD!!!!!
Sorry to have missed it.
Had an important dump to take.
If you don't care about a topic posted to the board, don't click on it....... I am actually curious to hear his comments on being drafted by the Redskins, since they already drafted a QB
Well, that makes two of you.
That's generally my view, too, but this is a pretty strange board topic. When something isn't about Michigan and the vast majority of people here couldn't care less, it's probably not board-worthy.
I was at Subway yesterday in west Michigan. I had my "We Bleed Blue" shirt on and a young girl of about 10 says "I like your shirt" and I, of course, say thank you. Her dad turns and says "Oh well I bleed green." I just smile and say "Most people around here do." He says "I can't believe Washington took two starting quaterbacks! I wonder who the starter is going to end up being next year." My mind was so blown I could barely order my veggie delight. Spartan fans are different because their minds are broken. They actually believe the impossible is a reality and get pissed when it doesn't happen. Psychopaths.
/CSB, but still...
At least this was more interesting than the OP
RG3 will be the starter but I would in no way be shocked if he doesn't make it and Cousins does over the next 10 years. It's QBs in the draft, anything can happen.
While I like to mock Coupons as much anyone on here, the guy is a winner. He was a 2*/3* athlete that took his opportunities and made the most of them, to the point where he got himself drafted. Though there are a lot of reasons for why this happened, the fact is that he did beat us each time he started against us, and left State in a far better position than when he came. If he continues to work hard he can make it in the NFL.
...the link provided by the OP took me to the download site for the Radio.com app on my iPad. The interesting thing about that is that I actually already have the app, so I must conclude that my iPad is a compassionate device and wished to spare me (and indeed, perhaps the link being useless spares us regardless of device - truly, a sign that this blog is becoming sapient life).
Man, this thread is getting mod-ed like a mofo...
I am shaking with anxiety and excitement waiting for the Mike Adams thread for his radio interview.
I assumed the OP put it up to razz us.
Don't let his name fool you. He's actually had some pretty good posts and comments, and as far as I have seen since he's been here, he's decievingly not an antagonistic poster. I think this is a momentarily lapse in judgement where an idea for a thread sounded much better on paper to him than it did actually on the blog for everyone else.
Thank you kind sir.
When I made the post initially I thought people would listen in or not...
Certainly didn't anticipate 2,000 odd views and 50 some posts. Something about time on hands and whatnot.
But thanks again for the vote of confidence!
It's unfortunate that in the 21st century, so many of the board members continue to discriminate against people based solely on the color of their jersey. For shame.
Not sure why this is big news. Obviously, a lot of people here dislike Kork, but how is he even getting a radio date? He was the 4th round pick and is guaranteed not to start next season barring an injury.
I actually think this was a good pick-up for the Redskins, but this just doesn't seem like big news to me, I'm surprised it got on the radio
Didn't Shaub get traded to the Texans for less than a 2nd? You might want to rethink your expectations for what you might get for a backup
Did he find the cure to cancer or something? What's the big deal?
Cousins will "divide the Redskins fanbase" because they'll want HIM to start over RGIII. Oh..., and MSU isn't eyeing the Rose Bowl n 2012. Hell no! They're setting their sights on the National Championship. I know cuz I read in on the rcbm.
I did not care enough at the time to work my way through the Gruden/Cousins comments. In my boredom since then I have seen the episode and it struck me that Gruden was going out of his way to chop Cousins down to size, which did not seem like a fair fight. After all of the chatter during draft weekend (except on BTN, of course), it seemed to be the consensus that there will not be room on the Redskins for his "leadership" skills, and that he will have to cut himself down to size to fit in with that team. So maybe Gruden was already in on the NFL consensus. Actually, I hope he can adapt to the new environment and survive, because he seems like a good kid.
A post about a rival player's radio appearance. What is next? The RCMB classic on or in threads?
Just called him "Kork Coupons" on another general college football board and everyone thought it was my i-phone auto correct that made it say that.
Kirk will need it. I just didn't see the arm needed for the pros. I guess that is why I am a fan, and not a draft analyst. I hope he is successful and Dantonio isn't. That is all.
New to the board and I fully expect everyone to disagree. Anyways I'm the biggest Michigan fan you'll ever find and I think this topic is pathetic. Cousins is a solid QB that happened to beat us 4 straight years and got himself into the NFL. Correct me if I'm wrong, but being a backup in the NFL is one helluva accomplishment. Congratulate the kid and move on
I'm thinking most people's reaction to the post might just be sour grapes because Cousins beat us so many times... But sorry he's 1,000,000x more relevant to Michigan sports than anything Manchester related etc. Anyone who pretends not to see that is just... a message board person I guess.
OP's identity revealed: he is Kork Coupons, beating his own drum again.
